Although the referees anc inc.smen arc signed to contracts, none of them arc nuilti-vcar as is Ihe case with several MIL players. Morrison said, however, that the contracts contained an op-ion-rcnewable clause, similar to the MIL'S reserve clause. SEVERAL TRAINEES Morrison presides over a group of 37 officials, 19 of whom re linesmen referee trainees. Most of the referees officiate exclusively in the NHL, but some function in the American, Western and Central leagues which are under his jurisdiction. The referce-in-crrief said he expected that the minor pro cagucs and amateur hockey wo ild suffer most from loss of officials to the newly-organized WHA. Morrison said he had not held meetings with the Referees' As-podation to discuss possibility o raids by the WHA. "1 do not. feel it is necessary at this time." While most of the speculation regarding the WHA has centred around possible player moves Morrison emphasized that re-eruiling of game to say nothing of scorers, goal-judges penalty-i nckccpers and could present a serious obstacle o WHA president Gary Davidson and co-founder Dennis Murphy of California, who have been singularly quiet on tbc subject.

The Penguins were going nowhere, bogged with injuries at kev positions, until coach Rer Kelly installed Leilcr at cen re between Greg Polis and Jean Pronovost, replacing injured Syl Apps. Leiter, a minor-league veteran, responded with his first three-goal game in the big leagues and ended the Penguins' losing string at six games.

"We'll run over that bridge when we come to Eep. B. F. Sisk (R-Cal.) said in a curt tone. Sisk went on, softening his platform: "We are here on the request of the leadership of Congress. Vrc arc reasonable men working for the good of baseball. We don't want to hurt baseball." Washington was caught short when the Senators moved to Dallas-Fort Worth last September. Owner Bob Short blamed financial difficulties. "We've gone through a shock and sometimes a shock nwalrena vou said Sisk. KU1IN PROMISES STUDY Baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn said of Uie meeting: "We had a very satisfying meeting. Baseball is flattered to have Ihis delegation here. We will study the problem and see if a solution can be found." Tiie delegation presented s petition signed by 238 members of Congress supporting the return of baseball to Washington. Kuhn said the Washington group had described in detail "the strong feeling for baseball in Washington." "They did not ask for decision at. this time but asked for a committee of baseball people to work with them." Tne commissioner said he would name a panel to work with the Washington group.
