Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 31, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuesday, Dectmber 31, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Former Leaf sparks Penguins Kehoe continues to haunt By The CANADIAN PRESS Toronto Maple Leafs would like to forget they had to give up Rick Kehoe this year. But the right winger and his Pitts- burgh Penguins team-mates keep coming back to rub salt in the Leafs' wounds. Kehoe demanded to be trad- ed before the start of the National Hockey League season, claiming a conflict with coach Red Kelly, and wound up with the Penguins. Monday night, Kehoe scored twice to lead Pittsburgh in a 7- 5 win over the Leafs, the Pen- guins' third win in four meet- ings between the clubs this year. In other NHL games Mon- day, New York Rangers whipped Minnesota North Stars 8-1 and Los Angeles Kings edged Detroit Red Wings 3-2. Kehoe opened the scoring at Pittsburgh with his 14th goal of the season midway in the first period, starting the Penguins towards a 3-0 lead. His second goal at of the second period gave Pitts- burh a 4-1 lead but Elaine Stoughton, who went to Leafs in the trade for Kehoe, scored his 10th of the season four minutes later and Jim McKenny followed with another Leafs' goal to narrow the margin to 4-3. Penguins captain Ron Schock beat Toronto net- minder Dune Wilson early in the third period and then set up a goal by Vic Hadfield to put Pittsburgh up 6-3 and Toronto couldn't catch up. Wilson faced 47 shots in the Toronto nets while Dennis Herron faced 40 in the Penguins' goal. PITTSBURGH 7 TORONTO S First Period: 1. Pittsburgh. Kehoe 14 (Kelly, Schock) B'44. 2.

"It was our best offensive game of the said Rangers' coach Emile Fran- cis. "When we start moving the puck around like that it has to go in said New York defenceman Ron Greschner who also had three assists in the game. At Detroit, Bob Berry scored at of the third period to break a 2-2 tie and give the Kings their eighth win in 16 road games this season. Rozelle not happy with Kapp ruling MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Commissioner Pete Rozelle says the National Football League believes the Joe Kapp ruling in which the NFL's reserve system was declared illegal "expresses the personal philosphy of the judge rather than being a ruling after a careful evaluation of the record." In weekend interviews, Rozelle and John Thompson, the league's chief labor negotiator said the decision would make it nearly impossible for them to negotiate a new contract with players. Rozelle, interviewed here Sunday when he attended the playoff game between Minnesota and Los Angeles, said the. NFL was confident the Kapp ruling by Judge William Sweigert of the United States dis- trict court would be overturned on appeal. "We have no plans to change any of our practices, including the draft, under the present Rozelle said A key portion of the NFL draft, the rule which allows Rozelle to decide the com- pensation due a team when one of its players jumps to another club and portions of the standard player contract were ruled illegal by Judge Sweigert. His ruling has the effect of making all NFL players true free agents once they complete their contract and it would make draft choices free agents if, after a certain amount of time, they did not like the offer of the club which drafted them. Rozelle said the league could not go ahead with his appeal until Seigert enters a final judgment in the case. In that judgment, Sweigert will, among other things, more clearly define when a college senior drafted by the NFL becomes a free agent. Both Rozelle and Thompson, chief of the NFL management council, predicted the Kapp ruling would "severely" crimp negotiations for a new contract with the players. The player strike of last summer was called as a result of many of the same issues ruled on by Judge Sweigert. A new contract has not been signed and players have played under the old, expired contract. Thompson said tentative arrangements had been made to reopen negotiations at the Jan. 12 Super Bowl, but "now it's a whole new ball game." "It (Kapp ruling) compounds our problems he said. "We had been agreeable to modifying our system, but not eliminating it. But if this becomes the law of the land, the system is eliminated. Personal foul Tommy Pagan of Nazareth R.D. managed to test. He didn't last very long as referee Marty Androvic creep into the action during girls' basketball con- stops play. Donohue sends Hunter will listen hoop star home to five final bids Cornhuskers seeking record, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Nebraska Cornhuskers, with the help of quarterback David Humm, have a chance to make the United States college football record book tonight. The eighth ranked Cornhuskers, 8-3, seek a record tying sixth consecutive bowl game vic- tory, meeting 18th rated Florida, also 8-3, in the Sugar Bowl at New Orleans. The record was set by Georgia Tech from 1952-57. Nebraska, a two touchdown favorite, began its bowl victory string with a 45-3 rout of Georgia in the Sun Bowl in 1969. Then, the Cornhuskers beat Louisiana State 17-12 in the 1971 Orange Bowl, Alabama 38-6 in the 1972 Orange Bowl, Notre Dame 40- 6 in the 1973 Orange Bowl and Texas 19-3 in the 1974 Cotton Bowl A year ago, Alabama took an unbeaten record and hopes of a national championship into the Sugar Bowl, but was beaten by Notre Dame 24-23 Alabama, now ranked second in the country, again has an unblemished mark, 11-0, and gets its chance for revenge against ninth ranked Notre Dame, 9-2, in Wednesday night's Orange Bowl at Miami. The New Year's Day foot- ball program begins with the Cotton Bowl game at Dallas between seventh ranked Penn State, 9-2, and 12th rated Baylor, 8-3. Then, No. 3 Ohio State. 10-1, and fifth ranked Southern California, 9- 1-1, will meet for the third straight year in the Rose Bowl at Pasadena, Calif. Top ranked Oklahoma, 11-0 is ineligible for a bowl game because it is on probation for recruiting violations. The Sooners may be named the national champion. The final Associated Press poll of the season will be taken after the bowl games. The Nebraska Florida matchup will pit the Cornhuskers' passing game, directed by the left handed Humm, against the Gators' strong ground attack, featur- ing freshman Tony Green. Humm, a drop back quarterback, has passed for more than yards in three years at Nebraska including yards this season. He averaged better than 140 passing yards a game during 1974 and tossed 12 touchdowns. Green carried 133 times for 856 yards, an average of 6.4 yards a carry, and rushed tor six touchdowns. Jimmy DuBose, with 662 yards on 132 carries, and Larry Brinson, with 418 yards on 74 attempts, are Florida's other top ground threats. The Notre Dame Alabama rematch is expected to be packed with emotion. In addi- tion to the Crimson Tide's bid for the national championship and revenge for last season's bowl loss to Notre Dame, Alabama will be out to snap its seven game winless streak in bowl competition. During that string, Alabama has lost six games and tied one HAVANA (CP) A member of Canada's national women's basketball team was kicked off the team Monday following a feud with coach John Donohue. A team official said Monday night that Liz Silcott, 23, a Loyola College student, was ordered off the team for poor attitude in practice. The official said it is possible that she will be sent back home early. Miss Silcott, a guard and member of the team since 1973. was described by Roger Jackson, chairman of the game plan technical committee, as a good player. He said there has been trouble between Miss Silcott and coach Donohue since the team arrived here last Friday The women's basketball team is one of eight teams here for 10 days of training and competition with Cuban national teams. They are tiaining for the 1976 Montreal Olympics. Coach Donohue was not available for immediate comment. He and Miss Silcott stayed at Jibacoa training camp, about 40 miles outside Havana, while the team attended official opening ceremonies for the training program. A team official said coach Donohue was considering sending Miss Silcott home before the scheduled Jan. 6 departure. The official said more than poor attitude was involved in the decision to cut Miss Silcott but would not elaborate. Any more details would have to come from coach Donohue. Another official with the athletes said there had been several screaming matches between Miss Silcott and coach Donohue and that the coach felt her attitude was harmful to the entire team.

Auburn stuns Longhorns in Gator Bowl victory JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) Underdog Auburn University Tigers stunned the fumbling Texas University Longhorns with two quick touchdowns midway through the first quarter and then sur- vived their own case of jitters for a 27-3 victory Monday night in the 30th Gator Bowl college football game. Phil Gargis flipped a seven- yard pass to second-string wingback Ed Butler with just under seven minutes gone in the game to cap a 12-play, 60- yard drive that produced Auburn's first touchdown. Less than two minutes later, Mitzi Jackson galloped 25 yards to the Texas two and then burst across on the next play for a touchdown. It came after Listen Eddins recovered one of five first-half bobbles by Texas. The conversion made it 14-0. Two more Texas mistakes on the same play helped set up Auburn's final touchdown, which came on a 14-yard pass from Gargis to Butler wtth 5Vz minutes left in the game. Mike Fuller returned an interception 27 yards and a facemask infraction shoved the ball all the way to the Longhorns' 29. The touchdown pass came five plays later and Gargis, who threw only five touchdown passes during the regular season, then threw to Dan Nugent for a two-point conversion. Chris Wilson's 28-yard field goal, with nine seconds left closed out the scoring. It was the first trip to the Gator Bowl for the llth- ranked Longhorns and they selected the occasion to per- form as sloppily as any Darrell Royal coached team has in a long time. Auburn, ranked sixth, entered the game a one-touchdown under- dog. In the first half, the Long- horns lost four of five fumbles, had a punt blocked by Auburn cornerback Jim McKmney for a safety, botch- ed up a handoff on two trick ki.ckoff returns and were penalized for pass inter- ference and a facemask tackle. A crowd of and a na- tional television audience saw Auburn finish its season with a 10-2 record. Texas, dethron- ed as Southwest Conference champion for the first time in seven years and thereby denied its accustomed trip to the Cotton Bowl, wound up 8-4. The only Texas score came on Billy Schott's 35-yard field goal late in the first quarter. i AUBURN'S MITZI JACKSON (22) SCORES IN GATOR BOWL James Wiskerke shone in the beys 11 and 12 division as he picked up four first-place finishes.

AHOSKIE, NC (AP) Five teams will make what may be their final pitch today for Jim (Catfish) Hunter and a high baseball source says the 28-year-old right-hander and his attorneys asked one team for a contract totalling 75 million. Thomas Cherry, one of four lawyers working with Hunter on the contract negotiations, said Monday night that the bidding had been reduced to five teams San Diego Padres. Cleveland Indians, New York Yankees. Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves all main- tain they are still in the runn- ing and when questioned about the still crowded field, Cherry said' "If they say they are still in the running, you would be cor- rect in saying so. We an- ticipate an announcement on who he will sign with shortly." The Yankees met three times Monday with Hunter and his lawyers. Sandwiched between them were one ses- sion with the Indians and a telephone conference call with three Padres officials. Rudy Carpenter, Philadelphia Phillies president, withdrew his team from the bidding Monday, say- ing a offer had been rejected. Texas Rangers said their offer was shunned. One source said he had seen the proposal Hunter and his lawyers gave to one team and said it called for million for Hunter, in lawyers fees and million Finley might be in trouble NEW YORK (AP) The Manhattan district attorney's office said Monday it would study new material to deter- mine whether there is enough evidence for a grand jury investigation of perjury allegations against Charles Finley, owner of Oakland A's baseball team. Richard Moss, chief counsel to the Major League Players' Association, turned over testi- mony and other documents to Ronald Goldstock, assistant district attorney, relating to a case involving pitcher Jim Hunter. Moss said the material, sub- mitted to Goldstock earlier in the day, showed Finley's testi- mony in November to a arbi- tration panel here was at vari- ance with what he later told an Alameda County Superior Court in California. The testimony dealt with the reserve clause battle in- volving Hunter, winner of the 1974 Cy Young award as the American League's top pitcher. The panel's ruling left Hunter a free agent. in insurance policies for Hunter and his children. Several major league baseball executives confirmed the general outline of the pro- posal. Peter Bavasi, vice- president of the Padres, said his club would not lose this un- precedented baseball sweep- stakes because their bid was too low. "All the clubs are now ap- parently aware of what it's going to take Bavasi said. "I think it boils down to quality of life. I think that is uppermost in Jim's mind There were others who finally decided it wasn't worth the incredibly high cost to make Hunter a resident of their city. Calvin Griffith, owner of Minnesota Twins, said: "Even though we were pre- pared to go as high as mil- lion, we found after dis- cussions with Hunter and his attorneys that we weren't even in the ballpark."
