Canucks beat New York 4-1 in Tuesday's game at Vancouver. It's all a mistake says star Cosby booed at Rams' game LOS ANGELES (API - Comedian-actor Bill Cosby, the frustrated football player, never misses a Los Angeles Rams' game and never fails to get more boos than the opponents. "It hurts," says the former Temple University bench-warmer of the razzing he gets each Sunday. But he explains it's all a mistake: "I really do root for the Rams. I just stand on the other side to see better." And, standing where he does, it might be a little dangerous to root noticeably for Ms team. Cosby explained that he Williams mav quit hockey MINNEAPOLIS (A P) - T o m m y Williams, Minnesota North Stars centre, says he is considering retiring for this National Hockey League season. "If my mental attitude doesn't change," said Williams, "I plan to talk to Walter Bush and Wren Blair about retiring for the season." W i 11 i a m s' wife died last month. "I've got five kids to take care of-including one a year and a half that is still in diapers," said Williams. "All I have left in this world is my kids and I'm not going to do anything that will hurt their future." Williams, zn. has two goals and seven assists in 16 games tliis year. The Dulutb, Minn., native scored 15 goals and 52 assists, a team record, in 1969-70. likes the sound of hitting and tackling. Standing on the sidelines is the only way of being close to where the action is. But he says he can't see any- thing from the Rams' side of the field. "I'd watch from the Rams' side except you can't see anything from our side because Short sport OPEN'S WITH WIN TORONTO (CP) - Hec Ger-vais, the gentle giant from Edmonton, opened the CBC-TV's double - knockout championship curling tournament Tuesday with a 9-2 win over Tom Tod of Thunder Bay, Ont. In other opening - round matches, Canadian champion Don Duguid skipped his Winnipeg rink to a 9-7 win over Ron Northcott of Calgary while the day's major upset saw Hap Mabey of Moncton, N.B., trim Merv Mann of Saskatoon 8-3. ? ? ? STOPS PAEZ LONDON (AP) - Joe Bug-ner, 21-year-old golden boy of British heavyweight boxing, stopped Argentine Miguel Paez in the third round of a scheduled 10-rounder here Tuesday night. Bugner, hailed by Britons as a man likely to trouble the best heavyweights in the w o r 1 d, weighed 214:I4 - pounds, P a e z 196'2. The Argentine suffered a nose cut that looked about two inches long before the referee stopped the fight at 2:42 of the third round. ? ? ? RUTH Ell FORD CALLED DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Red Wings of the National Hockey League called up 21-year-old Jim Rutherford from Fort Worth of the Central League Tuesday to replace injured goalie Roy Edwards.

Defenceman Jack Taggart got the winning goal on a 50-foot screen shot midway in the final period. ? * ? GAMES UNDER WAY BANGKOK (AP) - The sixth Asian Games got under way today with a parade by 2,000 athletes, marches by massed military bands, a performance by several hundred dancing girls and something less than a sellout. A disappointing opening-day crowd of some 20,000 people filled less than two-thirds of the seats in the main stadium to hear Thailand's King Bhumipol declare the Games officially open. Organizers attributed the poor turnout to the fact that three of Bangkok television stations broadcast the spectacle live. the Rams have so much spirit they never sit down. They're always on their feet, yelling and shouting and getting in the way. Then there are the photos. Every time you lean one way or the other, wham, a camera hits you in the head. So I go to the other side of the field. It's peaceful. But it's not easy." TREATED LIKE TRAITOR Bill is treated like Benedict Arnold by the fans. "Next they'll be throwing things," he says. The other day he took two friends - Jack Lemmon and Anthony Quinn-to the game. He huddled' with them before going on to the field of battle, explaining how to avoid the wrath of the 250-pound men in front of then:, none of them likely to be Los Angeles fans. "First and foremost, you gotta be cool," said Cosby. "Rule 1 is that if the Rams do something good, you don't cheer. You play it like the cat who got hit in the mouth with the milk bottle. You smile but the agony shows through. "Rule 2 is that if the visiting team scores, you don't say 'Oh, shucks.' Ycu smile.". "And you never jump up and down when the visiting team is penalized. And you say 'D�rn' when the Rams score. You keep your real feelings all inside. "Then, when the Rams have won again, you walk up the tunnel, out of sight from everyone and you start dancing and shouting. You yell 'Yeah, yeah, yeah, Rams.' " Cosby's acting is fooling Ram fans and the opponents. Until tliis is printed. By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Don't look for the name of Greg Polis in this year's National Hockey League Guide, but coach Red Kelly has high hopes for the Pittsburgh Penguins' No. 1 draft pick. "He's from the open air country and he has done it all like Gordie," said Kelly recently of his prize rookie while comparing him in some respects to Gordie Howe, Detroit Red Wings' 25-year veteran and a one-time Kelly team-mate. "When Howe came up to the NHL he was the kind of guy who had sharpened skates, and things like that. Greg reminds me of him in that way." Polis had his biggest night in the big league at home Tuesday night as the Penguins and goal-tender Al Smith blanked Toronto Maple Leafs 4-0. In the only other scheduled game, the surprising Vancouver Canucks tripped New York 4-1 to halt a Ranger takeover of first in the East Division. Tonight Montreal Canadiens are at Toronto, New York is in Los Angeles against the Kings, Buffalo Sabres are at Chicago Black Hawks, California Golden Seals entertain Vancouver at Oakland, Philadelphia Flyers meet the Blues at St. Louis and Pittsburgh goes against Minnesota North Stars at Blooming-ton, Minn. HAS GOOD NIGHT Polis, a 20-year-old rookie who sharpened skates and drove a bus last year while playing with Estevan Bruins of the Western Canada Junior Hockey League, scored once and assisted on the first two Penguin goals by Ken Schinkel and Brian Hextall. Hextall was given credit for the goal but the shot was taken by Polis. It caromed off Hex-tail's leg behind a beleaguered Jacques Plante in the Toronto goal. Smith handled 29 shots, including 15 in the second period, in registering his first shutout of the season at the expense of his former team-mates. In Vancouver, Mike Corrigan opened and closed the scoring as the Canucks padded their hold on fourth place with 25 points in the East and moved to within three points of third-place Montreal. The Rangers held second with 36, one behind leading Boston Bruins. 21 FOR 29 Corrigan, a 24-year-old Ottawa native who never quite fitted into the Toronto system and later failed to catch a regular berth with Los Angeles Kings, now has eight goals and 13 points for the season after 29 games. In his first solid bid for an NHL berth with the Kings last year, he compiled six goals and four assists in 36 games. Wayne Makis' 12th goal of the year in the first period proved Uie winner in front of 15,569 fans after New York's Dave Balon had replied to Corrigan's game opener. Detroit Red Wings called up Jim Rutherford, 21, from their Central League farm club at Fort Worth to backstop goalie Don McLeod. Saskatoon club a success story wmmmwmmim. COUGARS AIMING FOR TOP-Cordston Cougars have their sights set on top spot in the Southern Alberta High School Basketball league and coach Blaine Bunnage feels he has five good reasons for aiming for the top. With Bunnage, kneeling, are Doug Fox (23), Kent Spackman (15), Don Browne (31), David Bengry (24) and Perry leishman (14). Cardston plays host to Magrath Zeniths Friday and will seek their second win of the season. In other Friday games Raymond Comets travel to Medicine Hat and Catholic Central meets LCI at the Collegiate. By THE CANADIAN PRESS The success story in the Western Canada Hockey League now highlights Saskatoon Blades. Orest Kindrachuk of the Blades ran, his point - getting spree to 15 in three games with a goal and an assist as Saskatoon built up a 5-0 lead and then settled for a 5-3 win over Regina Pats Tuesday night. Kindrachuk now has 49 points for second place in the WCHL's point-getting race. Lawrence Sacharuk, allowed to play for the Blades by a court injunction after the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association rejected his transfer to his hometown, scored three goals as Saskatoon ran its consecutive win streak to four and vaulted past Swift Current Broncos into third place in the western division. In the only other game in the WCHL Tuesday night, Edmonton Oil Kings came from behind for a 5-2 win over Flin Flon Bombers. The Bombers continue their road trip with a game in Calgary tonight against the Centennials. The other scorer for the Blades before a hometown crowd of 750 was Dennis Abgrall. At Edmonton before a crowd of 3,133 the Oil Kings increased their lead in the western division to 10 points over Calgary which has 29 points. The Oil Kings rammed in four goals in the third period after goalie Cal Hammond had frustrated them with an outstanding performance in the first two periods. Gene Carr gave the Bombers a 1-0 lead in the first and Flin Flon was leading 2-1 at the end of the second on Bob Mc-Kinistry's counter. Left winger Dave Kryskow tallied twice for Edmonton and Darcy Rota, Bert Scott and Derek Harker counted singles. Hammond made 46 saves in the game and goalie Jack Cum-mings of Edmonton blocked 22 Flin Flon shots. Rutherford will replace Detroit's No. 1 netminder Roy Edwards, w,ho suffered a hairline fracture of the skull when his head struck the ice Sunday after a collision with Craig Cameron of St. Louis Blues. Edwards will be sidelined for three to four weeks. Summaries PITTSBURGH 4 TORONTO 0 First Period - 1. Pittsburgh, Schinkel 13 (Polis) 19:43. Penalties-Hen-derson 5:56, Sather 10:17.

Kapp expects to have fim BOSTON (AP) - Joe Kapp expects to have a little fun when he and the Boston Patriots meet the Minnesota Vikings Sunday in a National Football League game in Beantown. "Not necessarily enjoyable," Kapp says, "but fun." Kapp was Minnesota's starting quarterback when they won the 1969 NFL title. Today, he shares quarter-backing duties with Mike Tali-ferro on a Bostos team with a miserable 2-10 record. The Vikings are 10-2. "As well as I know those Vikings players," said Kapp, traded Oct. 2 two games into the regular season, "vou can throw out any talk about advantages or disadvantages. It's all fundamentals and execution." Kapp refused to accept Minnesota's contract offer and was traded for defensive back John Charles, now on the Vikings injured list, and a 1972 first round draft choice. Lawsuit will take time SAN DIEGO (AP) - Lance Alworth's $5.6-million lawsuit against San Diego Chargers of the National Football League may be fought "for three to five years," his attorney said Tuesday. Alworth, an all-pro flanker, accuses the Charges of taking advantage of his bankruptcy in business in negotiating his contract and a $50,000 loan. He asks to be made a free agent before his three-year contract ends so he can negotiate with another team. Eugene F. Klein, the Charger's major owner, said "Lance doesn't know what he wants" and that the suit has "zero merit." The suit was filed Monday in Superior Court along with one in U.S. District Court in which Alworth accuses the Chargers, the other 25 teams in the NFL and commissioner Pete Rozelle of violating federal anti-trust laws. Forms new rule book WINNIPEG (CP) - What was termed a distinctively Canadian rulebook was approved Sunday by the rules committee of the Canadian Federation of Amateur Baseball. The new book, to be ready for general distribution by April, will attempt to bring uniformity to Canadian baseball rules. The federation is the governing body of amateur baseball in Canada. "It is one of the most significant steps forward for amateur baseball in Canada," said Ron Hayter of Edmonton, the federation's vice-president and a committee member. He said in the past the development of baseball in Canada was hampered by rules and "a hodge-podge of confusing regulations." He said with the new rule book the federation could present a strong alternative to United States - based programs such as little league. Beaver was the name adopted for a new division covering boys 11, 12 and 13 years old, and is designed to replace such existing categories as pee-wee, Bantam B, Little Canadian, Sandlot and Bronco. Mosquito was the name approved for the youngsters playing in the 9-11 age bracket. The name of the former juvenile division for boys 17 and 18 years old was changed to Bison. Andy Zwack of Regina, a committee member, said juvenile name was unpopular and the new designation had more "strength of character." The committee also ruled that players in all age divisions must wear protective head gear while batting and base running, Football award goes to Hamilton NEW YORK (AP) - The National Football Foundation awarded its Distinguished American Award posthumously Tuesday night to the late Vince Lorn bard i, former college and professional coach. At the annual banquet the coveted Gold Medal Award was given to Admiral Thomas Hamilton, current commissioner of the Pacific Eight Conference. The MacArthur Bowl awarded to 1970's best college football team was presented to two universities - Ohio State and Texas - while 13 college football stars of today and nine from the past also were honored.
