The nigged Ranger forward, Webster's career in doubt OAKLAND (AD California Golden Seals placed right- winger Tom Webster on the dis- abled list Thursday and said his future as a hockey player "is very questionable" because of a congenital spinal condition that requires surgery. Webster, 23, played in only a handful of games for the Seals after being acquired from De- troit Red Wings early in the Na- tional Hockey League season. Charles 0. Finley, Seals owner, said Webster will un- dergo an operation soon consist- ing of a laminectonry and lumbosacral bone fusion." Finley said a medical exami- nation here disclosed Webster had been suffering for more than a year from the condition, not related to any injury. Webster, who had 30 goals and 37 assists for Detroit last season, was in hospital for al- most a month here before being released this week. He will re- turn to his home in Niagara Falls, Ont., nest week. Detroit got defenceman Don Stackhouse of the Seals in the Oct. 21 trade for Webster. Finley declined to say Thurs- day if the Seals have asked for the trade to be voided. "All I can say is that Webs- ter's condition has been re- ported to the Detroit Red Wings and to Clarence Campbell, the league Finley said. Finley said Webster's conva- lescence after the operation will be at least six months.

Bench, in Tulsa for the annual Oaklaboma Athletic Hall of Fame meeting, said the Reds have suggested he gel down to 200 pounds and divest himself of an automobile agency in Dayton and a bowling alley in Cincin- nati. The requests came after Bench, Ihe 1970 Most Valuable Player in the National League with 15 home runs, 140 runs bat- led in and a .293 average, hit only .238 with 27 homers and 61 I bULUUU UUdI dllu Illdl Llleu lllc kept interrupting Geoffrion dur- touchdown despite :ng a Ranger workout .insisting RBI last season.
