Al Dorow, head coach of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, makes no bones about the amount of holding that goes on in professional football. "Holding penalties you could call one on every play, but the officials don't. And they never call back-to-back holding pen- alties against the same team.

Last night in California. St. Louis Blues and the Golden Seals settled for a 4-4 tie after the Blues took a 2-0 first period lead on goals by Gary Unger, his 15th, and Mike Murphy. SCORE QUICKLY California replied with a pair of quickies early in the second period when Gerry Pindcr and Walt McKecluiie tied the score before four minutes had elapsed. The Blues went ahead again when Barclay Plager connected unassisted. Then the Seals' lead- ing scorer, Bobby Sheehan, squared accounts again at Craig Patrick shared third-pe- riod goals with Murphy, who got his second of the game at to salvage the tie for the vis- itors. The Blues outshot the Seals 41-25 but Gillcs Melochc was a stubborn obstacle in the Califor- nia net.

But in many respects Howe, considered by some the greatest hcckcy player of all lime, is busier than he ever was as a star forward for a quarter of a century with the Detroit Red Wings. And despite all those years of glory on the ice at Olympia Stadium in Detroit, and throughout Canada and the United States, Howe says he doesn't miss it all.

There were only two reasons for mo to stay big contract, and to reap the glory of the peo- ple. "If I had a bad time with my wrist and legs and was just going through the well, 1 just wouldn't have wanted thai. I didn't want to milk the fans." Howe formally announced his retirement at a banquet in his face during his career in the rugged sport, still skates quite a bit. A continually bothersome ar- thritic wrist, plus aging legs, were among reasons that prompted Howe to quit the "I thought I'd miss it a hell of a lot more, but I he said. "If I'd have been a younger man, in my 30s, maybe I would have. I think I went the full route in 26 pro years." Howe gave up a ?100.000-plus contract when he retired. His salary as a VP reportedly is not much less.
