Toros make Christinas brighter TORONTO (CP) Anabelle MacDonald was not much of a hockey fan until Toronto Toros decided to make Christmas for her and her five children a happy one. The MacDonald home burned down Dec. 7, leaving Mrs. MacDonald and her five children, aged 2 to 13, without a place to live or any belongings. Mr. MacDonald died in a November car accident. Two of the children stayed vith their mother and three stayed with her brother, Rod. It looked like a grim Christmas for the fami- ly until forward Pat Hickey of the Toros heard about the family on a radio show and, with other members of the World Hockey Association team, de- cided to help. They collected for food and presents, as well as donating to each of the three Toronto daily news- papers' Christmas funds. Toro president John Bassett bought the MacDonalds a televi- sion set. Friday, Mrs. MacDonald found a new place to live and a ser- vice club agreed to pay the rent until the family finds an Ontario Hous- ing Corp. rent- subsidized house.

The tremor was set off when United States District Court Judge William T. Sweigert ruled that the NFL's reserve system, by which players are bound to one team, was in violation of anti- trust laws. The opinion was issued in response to a suit brought two years ago by quarterback Joe Kapp, who retired rather than sign the contract which com- mits a player to the reserve system. Full effect of the shock wave may not be known for years, as the ruling appears certain to be appealed by the NFL. But for the present, three major player com- as the Free- dom Issues during the player strike last been upheld. "It's the most significant development in the history of professional sports from the point of view of the said Ed Garvey, executive director of the NFL Players Association. The Rozelle Rule was judg- ed "patently unreasonable and illegal" for restraining a player's choice of teams even after he has become a free agent. Previously, if a player had completed the option year of his contract with one a free signed with a new one, that team was obligated to compensate the player's former club. If the teams could not agree on a deal, Rozelle would decide com- inhibiting teams from signing a free agent in fear of losing too much of value in order to do so. It was decided by Sweigert, as a result, that pro football had engaged in an illegal con- spiracy to restrain trade and eliminate competition for players. A portion of the college player draft was judged "pat- ently unreasonable" by Swei- gert because it permits "perpetual boycott (by.other NFL teams) of a draft prospect even when the club drafting him refuses or fails within a reasonable time to reach a contract with the player.'' He may not negotiate with another team, and that stipulation was ruled illegal as well because "a rea- sonable time" never has been defined. Thus, unless the format is modified before the Jan. 28 draft, this year's top college players could sign with the team that makes the best offer. Also knocked out was the rule which had made Rozelle the sole arbiter in many cases involving interpretation or en- forcement of NFL rules. The judge said the rule is "patently unreasonable in- so-far as that unilateral kind of arbitration is used to interpret or enforce other NFL rules involving restric- tions on the rights of players or clubs to free employment choice." Sweigert did not, however, Juveniles to play The Lethbridge Midget Elks and the Lethbridge Juvenile Warriors will tangle Sunday at 2 p.m. at the Henderson Ice Centre.

DOUG BOYER Sales Representative Continues to Serve Southern 308 9th St. S. Phone 328-1228 rule against the option clause which allows a club to renew a contract for one year beyond its expiration date. The one- year option has been accepted as a reasonable protection for a club, and Sweigert said a ruling on the clause would have to come from a trial, not a summary judgment. "It's been a long battle, but I'm extremely said Kapp, former quarterback with Calgary Stampeders and British Columbia Lions in the Canadian Football League and the NFL Minnesota Vikings and Boston Patriots. In 1959, Kapp joined Calgary after leading the University of California to the Rose Bowl. He was traded to B.C. in 1961 and led the Lions to the Grey Cup in 1964. He signed with the Vikings in 1967 and led them to the Super Bowl in 1969. He played out the option year of his Minnesota contract and signed a memo a standard NFL player the then' Boston Patriots for 1970, 1971 and 1972 at an es- timated salary after the Patriots gave up a player and a No. 1 draft choice as compensation. Kapp refused to sign a standard contract for the very reasons the courts said were illegal Friday. But Rozelle ruled after the 1970 season, when Kapp played 11 games, that no player could even an NFL team unless he had signed a contract. Kapp refused and the suit began because he was not being allowed to fulfill the contract he had signed. Moses Laskey, one of Kapp's lawyers, estimated the damage payments Kapp could receive would be at least million. "We're very said Los Angeles Rams, center Bill Curry, president of the NFLPA. "I don't think players are going to start jumping their contracts. We're just in favor of having a voice in our occupation." Rozelle, in the meantime, had no did many of the other sports leaders including Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, Simon Gourdine, deputy com- missioner of the National Basketball Association, or many of the NFL owners. They reserved reaction until they had a chance to study the ruling. Ganadiens upend Canucks, Crusaders end losing streak THE CANADIAN PRESS Montreal Canadiens, after regaining a two-point lead Friday night, meet Los Angeles Kings tonight in a showdown for supremacy in the National Hockey League Norris Division. The Canadiens, who have been in a see-saw battle with the Kings for the Norris lead the last couple weeks, moved back in front with a 6-1 win over Vancouver Canucks. In other games, Atlanta Flames beat St. Louis Blues 6- 2 and California Seals defeated Washington Capitals 5-2. At Vancouver, the Canadiens took a 2-1 lead in the first period and increased the margin with second-period goals by Murray Wilson and Guy Lafleur. "They just don't seem to miss the said Canucks winger Gerry Meehan of the Canadians. "We can get a cou- ple of shots and get nothing; they get five chances and get five goals." "Their third goal by Wilson was offside and that really killed said Canucks coach Phil Maloney. "But Montreal is just a super hockey club." Meehan also was impressed with Lafleur who collected his 22nd goal of the season. "They've been touting him since he was 20 as the next Rocket Richard or Jean Be- liveau and he's really flying fi- nally this year." Montreal coach Scotty Bow- man said the Canadiens played thair best checking game of the year and he had some special words of praise for the Kid Line of Doug Risebrough, Yvon Lambert arid Mario Tremblay. "They were really flying, playing well together and initiating a lot of offence." Risebrough picked up his fifth goal of the season to close out the scoring in the third period. At Atlanta, the Flames snapped an eight-game losing streak with the win over St. Louis. The Flames didn't take a shot on goal for the first 14 minutes and 28 seconds of the game and were trailing 2-0 early in the second period two goals' by Wayne Merrick. "We were so tight, it was like trying to give a speech in front of a lot of said Curt Bennett of Atlanta. "All of a sudden we got those three fast ones and something snapped." The three fast ones were scored by Tom Lysiak, Jac- ques Richard and Buster Harvey and came in a span of of the second period to give Atlanta a 3-2 lead.

California, which outshot Washington 44-23, got first-pe- riod goals by Larry Patey, Al MacAdams and Morris Mott. The Capitals, who have lost all 17 of their road games this season, got back into the con- test when Bill Lesuk and Ron Lalonde scored 32 seconds apart while they were short handed in the second period. California's Dave Hrechkosy put the game out of reach when he scored from a face-off to notch his 16th point in his last 16 games. Dave Gardner scored for California late in the third period when the Seals had a two-man advantage. Washington centre Jim Hry- cuik suffered torn ligaments in his left knee when he collid- ed with the California goal post in the first period. Cleveland Crusaders finally broke their six-game losing streak in the World Hockey Association Friday night. "It was a long time com- said Crusaders coach John Hanna after his club blanked New England 3-0, the Whalers' first shutout loss of the season. Quebec Nordiques missed a chance to take over the Cana- dian Division lead when they lost 5-3 to Chicago Cougars while Minnesota Fighting Saints beat Indianapolis Racers 6-4 and Phoenix Roadrunners defeated Michigan Stags 7-2. Ron Ward, Grant Erickson and Russ Walker scored in the first period and goalie Gerry Cheevers shut out the Whalers to give Cleveland the win. Hanna said he thinks Chee- vers is regaining his con- fidence. "In the last three games he's had to put up with over 150 shots on Hanna said. Friday night Cheevers fend- ed off only 30. He will be in goal again when the Crusaders take on Houston Aeros at Cleveland Sunday night. Quebec could have been leading the Canadian Division today except for a couple of goals by Montrealer Francois Rochon. Rochon, in only his second professional season with Chi- cago Cougars, scored his 12th and 13th goals of the season. The loss left the Nordiques one point behind the leading Toronto Toros in the Canadian Division. Rick Morris, Mark Lomenda and Bryon Baltimore scored the other goals for the Cougars. Serge Bernier, Marc Tardif and Rick Jordan replied for the Nordiques. Third-period goals by Gary Gambucci and Rich Smith lifted Minnesota to victory over Indianapolis.
