Bo L) Wool f, who Includes among his clients three NHL who jutnjxxl to the fnr next season, said the two leagues "seem to be lining up and preparing Tor "They appear to be loading up their ammunition aixl pro- paring to fire, and that is not good for said Woolf, commenting on a preliminary injunction issued in Phila- last June restraining Dill Flelt of the Flyers from joining the WIlA's New York .vaidcrs. It became final Tuesday. Judge Ned L. Hirsch of Phila- delphia's common pleas court ruled that Flelt cannot play for cny other club than the Flyers. The ruling was academic in that Flelt had since retnrnd to Philadelphia club and signed a line-year contract. Gilbert Stein, a lawyer lor (he NHL team, said the rulinj; gave the NHL. team grounds to lake similar action against live otlicr Philadelphia players who have signed with WHA tcams- Davc Schullz, Mike Pameau, Kd Joyal, Bob Kelly and Fircnt Hughes.

Until then, the New York Jets1 swarthy bombardier will lollygag through a six-week pre-sea son schedule on those puny but precious pins for per exhibition. Although players are paid comparatively little for pre-sea- son sweat and pain, teams gross about million in 77 of the no-count games. Many owners admit profits, but claim they the cushion. "Most teams feel they would operate ir. the red if there was no pro-season said a spokesman from the NFL office in New York. KEEPS COSTS DOWN "Without he .said, "own- ers feel they could not hold the current level or, ticket prices or keep up increasing salary demands." More than half the exhibi- -have charity tie-ins. "Charity is an equal said the NFL spokes- ample I Ed Garvey, director of the NFL Players Association, sees it differently and indicates fu- ture moves designed, to further sweeten the bank accounts of Sunday's heroes. "The owners, in our opinion, reap a bonanza during the pre- Garvey said from his office in Washington. "Players get very little for their talents on Saturday night and, the rest of the train- ing camp week, they hardly make the federal minimum wage of SI.25 an hour." Fat-contracted superstars- such as Namath, John Eirodic fern-iive guards and second- string defensive backs during the preseason. It's a set scale, based solely on experience. Players with five or more seasons in the NFL get the figure. A four-year vet- eran grosses a game, three-year men earn and two-year players Rookies get zero. NFL owners house Iheir training camp squads in double rooms, dish up ample food and pay each mnn a day ex- and 0. J. pair! at I pauses.

It was Bob Kinniburg who had the hunch about Steve Smerek in the horse race at the Country Club Monday Kinniburg was heard to say "as 23-1 long- shot Smerek teed off" The Black Knight won the PGA why can't he do it here? Gary Player is the Black Knight he wears all black on the PGA tour .Smerek was wearing all black Monday and paid for a SI win ticket An interesting match-up in the invitational Monday was Bill Town- send Sr. and Jr. With a little help from Dad, junior upset the teacher Miko Douglas, golf pro- fessional at the Country Club, looks younger every- tirne we see him They tell me he hasn't lost much of his touch 'with golf clubs either Chuck Thorpe, rookie PGA golfer, when asked what he likes to eat quickly replied "I like steak and good food like that, but mostly steak If you eat hot dogs, you play like one. If you eat hamburger, you play like one flat I hope his idea doesn't become a house- hold word If the nations favorite food becomes steak sandwiches, a lot of us could be in trouble keep- ing up. Dick Williams, Oakland Athletics' mana- ger, discussed the rarity of bona fide super stars in baseball today Williams says "There is no such animal around anymore If there is a super star in the American League, there's only Richie Allen of the Chicago White .Sox The only thing he can't do is throw, and at his position ffirst base) that's not a critical item." Heywood Sullivan, personnel director for the Boston Red Sox made a very interesting statement recenlly "On the lowest farms we have one manager. Where we have Ihe most necrl for teachers, we have [he fewest, and where we Ihe fewest teachers, we have the most Tltis will have to change." Weil my forcasting record is still on the above average sitje, but just barely As it now stands ;ifier the first seven games I'm 4-3, the victim of a couple of upsets however, will change after (his week I'm only going to predict the outcome of throe games so I'll have something to talk about Saturday Tonight Toronto is at Saskatchewan, Thursday Ottawa visits Montreal and Friday Hamilton is Etlmonlort Saskatchewan will defeat the Joe Thcismannlcss Argos, Ottawa will prevail over Montreal and Edmonton will stop Hamilton If 1 hit it right this week I'll be 7-3 and there will he no stopping inc. n Santa Anita, Calif., said the uting had no bearing on the ot the NllL's reserve :lausc which binds a player to ttc team that owns him. Davidson said lliat to his knowledge no WHA club or rcscntalivc was served In the :lt case and the player did lot defend the suit. no defence was presented on behalf of the WHA ion that the NHL reserve clause Is invalid." He calletl the NllL's clause "an invalid and illegal restraint on trade, as well as a violation ot the in- dividual rights of hockey play- ers." Neither Clarence Campbell, NHL president, nor Alan Eagle- son, NHL Players' Association executive-director, could be reached for comment. But Harold Ballard, presidenl of Toronto Maple Leafs who hive lost several players lo the WHA, hailed the injunction rut as "heartening" although i will have no legal status Canada. lie added, however, tha Leafs plan to take legal 10 days to tw four Toront players have signed t WHA Rra Sehvood (subsequently picka up by Montreal Canadiens the NHL draft) and nick Lc with New England Whaler? goaltender Dernic Parent wit Philadelphia and centre Jim Harrison with Alhcrta Oilers.

Woolf said (lie contracts cn- ered into by Ins three NHL 'layers with WHA clubs "have provided for every contingency, iml no matter what happens hey will get their money." Of the pending legal war be- ween the NHL and WHA, iha Joston lawyer was despondent hat such a confrontation ionld lake place. "I saw v.'hal hapjicned to bas- ketball and I would not want to see it happen in hockey." He was referring to the bitter inter-feogue signings and legal entanglements that have devel- oped in recent years between the established National Bas- ketball Association and the American Basketball Associ- ation. WHA clubs, meanwhile, con- tinued to -sign players from the NHL. Cleveland Crusaders an- nounced Tuesday that Paul An- drea and .loe Hardy and ama- teur Jim McMastcrs from Cal- gary Centennials of the West- ern Canada Hockey League.
