I don't even want to think about It." and his wingers, Toronto Maple }Iendcrson and Ron Sinden said both Henderson and Kllis are fast skaters "and 1 knew Clarke would he able to get the puck to them." Clarke also was a noted fore- checker "which will work well with them because Ellis is k to get back for bnck- c hoc king." "Henderson, of course, is quick and fast and good in all tin.

"Tills has reopened iny eyes on how different our games are.1' Hockey Canada, the agency under which Team Canada was established, announced Tuesday Lhe appointment of NHL statis- tician lion Andrews in that same capacity with the Cana- dian team. Meanwhile Pat Staplcton pass- ed up surgery on u gimpy left icrii'e after the last National Hockey league season because knew there was a chance he might be selected for Team Canada. He was aware, and doctors confirmed at season's end, the knee needed doctoring. It left him with a choice: Have it op- erated on and forget about playing the Russians, or play with the pain and have the sur- gery later. "It was in (he back of my mind then that I might be asked to play in the scries against the 32-ycr.r-olcI Chicago Black Hawk defen- ce-man said Tuesday. "Dr. (Ted) Fox set a date, I think it was the nth of June, that would be the latest possible date for the operation so that 1 could hope to skating by Oct. 1. 4'That way, it would have been impossible to play in Ibis series. I decided then to forget ahout the surgery." Sfapleton worked daily this summer lo strengthen his knee. His showing Tuesday in Team Canadn's first scrim- mage 3n preparation for the September exhibition series against Russia didn't give any indication the knee was both- crng him. "It's he said later en- roule to see physiotherapist Karl Elicff for treatment. "Hut there's no comparison to the way it was in (he playoffs." The same knee required sur- gery in J970 when the Sarnla, Ont., native slammed into a goalpost.

I read the story on Mauiy Wills Tuesday and it brought hack the memory of the time I met Wills at the 1063 Kinsmen Sportsman's Dinner. I remember because Wills had stolen 104 bases In the 1902 season, an incredible {eat that had the experts saying it couhln't lie done all in one season as Wills kept chalking up thefts. ''Banjo" Wills had proven them wrong and was a Lelhbrldye visitor. Wills had spent nine years in the minors, playing for the Spokane Indians of the Pacific Coast League under manager Tom Lasorda before breaking into the majors with the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was hard to believe, at the time, that the Dodgers would let him linger in the minors for so long. 1 had always been a Dodger fan. I liked it when they were the Brooklyn Bums because you could call them that without gelling your rnauth washed out with soap for using the word bum. I stood 10 feet tall that Saturday night and it was all because of the late Spencer Harris.

I didn't even know who Harris was. He was just a greying, very business like older gentleman who took time out to talk to rne. Harris was sitting by himself at the back of the Exhibition Pavilion. 1 was right up at the front trying to get autographs from the bead table guests. I remember we had gotten National Football League telecasts for the first time that fall and Fred 'Curly" Morrison and Jimmy Brown of the Cleveland Browns, were at the head table. So were Phil Goyetle of the Montreal Canadiens, Jack Adams of Detroit Red Wing fame, Dave "Sweeney" Shrincr, Ken Ploen of tlie Winnipeg Blue Bombers and our own Jim Furlong of the Stampeders and, of course, Wills. it It's funny how, with my short memory, I can recall, almost exactly, how things went that evening. I was working in the accounting department of the Herald at the time and there was an extra dinner ticket floating around. I wasn't even old enough lo buy a beer at the dinner but Tom Adams, at that time the advertising manager, asked me if I would like to go. It didn't take long for an answer. It was Tom who wanted the program autographed for his son Gary. Not thai I didn't want one myself, was just lliat at 20 years of age I felt rather foolish asking these grown men for tlieir autographs like a star-struck teenager. I managed to get all the autographs with the ex- ception of Wills. U was then I ran into Harris simply because I tired of standing in line waiting for Wills to sign all the oilier programs. There was a record crowd at the IGfill dinner. Harris was silling alone and I noliced his ring. It was a World Series ring with the biggest sapphire 1 had ever seen, in the centre, surrounded by small diamonds. asked him about it and he told me it was from tlie 19GO World Series that the Dodgers won four games to one over the Chicago White Sox, after losing the first game 11-0. We had a tittle chat, something like you would have with an old friend, and he asked me if I was enjoying myself? f told him it was one of the biggest thrills I had ever bad. And it was, 1 had never seen so many sports personalities in my life. That is what I said, or something to that effect, but I also made it clear to him that it could be the greatest if I could just get Maury Wills' autograph. "Say no said Harris. He calmly walked over to where Wills was signing autographs and said, "Mauiy. I want you to meet au old friend of mine, Pat Sullivan." Wills excused himself from the crowd around him and came over and shook my already shaking hand and said "It's a pleasure to meet you young To say T will never forgel Ihal night is an under- statement. That is why, when I read Ihal story Tues- day, I was saddened. It reminded me that Spencer Harris has been dead the past five or six years. One of the finest men I have ever met, Harris gave me one of (he biggest thrills of my life. It was because him I met an immortal in the game of baseball. And now Wills is approaching Ihc end of bis playing career. He has played in only 40 games this year and is not even balling bis own weight. Time waits for no one. I can almost see him leaning off of first base threatening to go lo second. Avery warns nations From AP-UEUTEU MUNICH (CP) Avcry Brxmdage, president of the In- ternational Olympic Com- mittee, warned today that Afri can teams that boycott the Munich Games endangered their participation in future Olympics. In a slrongiy-worded state- ment, Brundage also warned that Iht3 rational Olympic com- mittee of boy coltin g natioas stood to lose their recognition the International Olympic Committee. Brundage's statement came after six black African nations served notice they would with- d raw their t earns from the Munich Games because of the participation of athletes from, the breakaway British colony of Rhodesia. The six cited the al- leged racist policies by the white government in Salisbury. Ethiopia's withdrawal, an- nounced Tuesday, threatened to deal a major blow to the Games which open Aug. 2S. But In Munich, the 84-year- old American IOC head insisted that Rhodesia would be allowed to compete. Many African countries al- ready had teams in Munich, he said, and "all the sportsmen will be here, I think." Brundage will preside over a six-day meeting of the IOC con- gress starting Saturday at which the Rhodesian question may be raised again. So far there has been no hint that the IOC will change its rul- ing that the Rhodes team includes seven black ath- compete on the same terms ns during Die 19G4 Olym- in Tokyo as a "British col- ony." WANTS WITHDRAWAL The organization of African Unity, the continent's major po- litical grouping, lias called for tot al African withd ra wal from the Games in protest against participation of the i t G-minority-ruled colony which unilaterally declared its independence from Britain in 1965. This has put the OAU In con- flict with the non-governmental Supremo Council for Sports in Africa, which wants Africans to stay in the Games. After Ethiopia's announce- ment Tuesday, Ghana an- nounced that it also would boy- cott the Games if Rhodesia were allowed to compete. The other coi intri es which liavc decided on a boycott are Tanzania, Sierra Leone, Liberia aiic. Sudan.
