Beliveau, Ferguson perform Canucks had Habs in trouble By THE CANADIAN PKESS A couple of class players with entirely different approaches to the game pulled Montreal Cana- diens out of a jam Tuesday night for a 5-2 National Hockey League victory over Vancouver Canucks. Jean Beliveau, in the twilight of a superb career but still a commanding figure for the Can adiens, scared twice as did John Ferguson, unofficial fight cham- pion of the big leagues who has been in somewhat of a scoring t A J February 3, THE LETHUIDGE HERALD 8 Sluggers want increases Expos sign Morton By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Half a dozen pitchers made up the prize catch in baseball's signing sweepstakes Tuesday while a pair of sluggers indi- cated they might prove more difficult to land.

So did pitchers Tom eaver and Jerry Koosman of ew York Mets, Jim Kaat and uis Tiant of Minnesota Twins nd Jim McGlothlin of Cincin- ati Reds. Meanwhile, Cincinnati's Tony erez and Reggie Jackson of Jakland Athletics, a pair of ong-ball hitters playing for San- urce in the Puerto Rican Win- er League, said they are an- ling for pay increases. Morton, 27-year-old converted utfielder who posted an 18-11 ecord for Montreal in 1970, re- ceived a substantial raise over ast year's estimated alary. SEAVER GETS RAISE Seaver, the 1969 NL Cy Young Award winner who slipped from 25 to 18 victories last year, ac- cepted a slight boost in pay that put him close to the jracket. Team-mate Koosman, .2-7 in 1970 after an early-sea- son siege of arm trouble, signed for about Seaver, 18-12, was the Na- tional League's ERA (2.81) and strikeout king (283) last season. Kaat won 14 of 24 decisions for the Twins. Tiant, plagued by arm problems, was 7-3. McGlothlin, 14-11 for the Reds, signed with the NL champs along with two rookies. Pittsburgh signed three in- fielders including Dave Cash, who batted .314 as a 1970 rookie. Infielders Hal Lanier and Alan Gallagher were among four San Francisco Giants' signees. WANTS Perez, who swatted 42 homers and delivered 122 runs for Cin- cinnati, said he wants for his signature. Jackson, who landed in Char- ley Finley's doghouse at Oak- land last-year and finished with a mediocre .237 batting aver- age, still will ask for a pay raise. "I hit 23 home runs and bat- ted in 70 runs, so I should get a slump since ending a brief re- tirement. Beliveau, 39 and the Cana- diens' all-time scoring leader with points in games, notched No. 14 of the season 36 seconds into the game and scored again early in the third period after Vancouver had wiped out J> 3-0 Montreal lead with two second-period goals. Lacking the classic moves of Beliveau, Ferguson makes up for it with a rugged style of play that has been invaluable to the fast-skating Canadiens in re- cent years. Since joining the club seven years ago, Ferguson has not only logged plenty of time in the penalty box but has emerged a respectable scorer. tOST SCORING TOUCH He scored 48 goals in the two seasons before this one. But after retiring early in the sea- son, he has had problems re- turning to form and his output Tuesday gave him six for the year.

Rustlers take over first place EDMONTON (CP) Red Deer Rustlers scored four goals in the first period in then- 6-3 defeat of Edmonton Maple Leafs of the Alberta Junior Hockey League Tuesday night. Red Deer led 4-2 after the first period and increased their lead to 5-2 after 40 minutes of play. Both teams scored a goal in the third period. Dennis Result led Red Deer with two goals. Singles came from Lome Bartel, Terry Wed- derburn. Don Bolkowy and Mickey Gerrard. Keith McCleish, Phil Blake and Dale Bowler netted Edmon- ton's goals. Red Deer took 13 of 19 minor Penguins at Pittsburgh. The Canadiens got some bad news Tuesday when it was learned that injured winger Claude Larose would be unable to rejoin the team during its western swing through Vancou- ver, Oakland and Los1 Angeles. Larose who suffered a severe concussion 10 days ago, said he still feels nauseous on occasion and vowed he'll wear a protec- tive helmet for the rest of his career. "You know that this is the first time in my life I have been knocked unconscious, com- pletely said the 28-year-old native of Hearst, Ont. "It's not a nice feeling. OPERATION DELAYED At the same time, the bone- graft surgery on defenceman Serge Savard's left leg, sched- uled for Tuesday morning, was set back another 24 hours. No reason was given for the change. Savard, who returned the Canadiens' lineup Nov. 7 after being out since last March be- cause of a multiple fracture to his left leg, broke the same leg Saturday in Montreal's 54 loss at home to Toronto. Winger Bill Hicke hopes to re- turn to the California Golden Seals lineup against Montreal Friday night with a protective mask over his broken nose. The nose, broken earlier in the season, was reinjured Sun- day in a 7-1 loss to Minnesota North Stars. MONTREAL 5 VANCOUVER 2 First Period 1. Montreal, Beli- veau 14 (Cournoyer) 2.

The two faced 18 shots. In Ponoka, Evan McPhedran scored three goals Tuesday night to lead the Stampeders to a 9-2 victory over Calgary Coug- ars.

Marcel Comeau got two goals while Doug Topley, Ray Bans- ley, Tom Clark and Darryl Wal- lis scored one each. Brian Smith and Darryl Goss replied for Calgary. Scott Darling in the Calgary net faced 41 shols, while Grah- am Parson made 32 saves at the other end of the ice. Canadians complete swim NEW PLYMOUTH, N.Z. (CP) Canadian swimmers com- pleted a New Zealand tour to- night by winning five of eight events in competition here. Angela Coughlan of Burling- ton, Ont. gold medallist in the 100-yard 'freestyle at the 1970 Commonwealth Games, won two events. Her winning time in the 100-yard freestyle here was one minutes and 4.4 seconds, well off her timing in Edinburgh last year. Miss Coughlan also captured the 800-metre freestyle, setting a New Zealand record of 1.7 seconds better than the mark previously established by Susan Hunter of New Zealand. Bill Kennedy of London, Ont., 100-metre backstroke gold med- allist at Edinburgh, won the same event here in This Games time last year was Rosemarie Pepe of Vancouver won the women's 200-metre breasktroke in and Leslie Cliff, also of Vancouver, took the women's 100-metre butterfly in But since that time there has been nothing death-like in the operation of the group of old pros who have raised close to million for assorted charities by doing what they know best- play hockey. Prior to 1963 the group had been known as the Quebec Old- timers, embracing former pros from all teams in the province. Since that time a separate group has been organized in Quebec City. Glen Harmon, 50, a former defenceman with Montreal Can- adiens and a member of the current team's board of direc- tors, recalled Tuesday the whimsical circumstances sur- rounding the delivery of the charter. He said William Wray. a for- mer goalie with Montreal Ma roons and an undertaker, had retired to Florida along with the books, records and charter for the old Quebec group. Wray returned the documents i to Montreal with one of his driv- i ers in what happened to be for 1 him the easiest mode of trans- portation. AID CANCER FUND Harmon said hir group ex peels it will pass the million mark for charity when the team visits Toronto Feb. 19 for a game against a group of former Maple Leafs on behalf of the Charlie Conacher Cancer Fund. The team carries a 23-man roster with Harmon, Rocket Richard, Dickie Moore, Elmer Lach and other former Cana- diens stars still active. Oldest buck the moon shot and Boston Firth girls among best BARRIE, Ont.

Sharon finished first Shirley second in the women's five-kilometre championships at the United States national meet in Colorado. Then, two weeks later, they reversed the order in the same event at the North American ships here. But the two are so painfully shy in public that they leave it to others to do their talking for them. YERKES DIES LANSDALE, Pa. (AP) phen D. Ycrkes, 81, a former second baseman for Boston Red Sox, died in hospital here Sun- day. Yerkes won fame in base- ball's 1912 World Series when he drove home the winning run for the Red Sox against New York Giants. I want you to pay less income tax.

"When we go to a own such as Sherbrooke and le net gate is the local uroup that sponsors the game or their charity gets vhile we get for one of )ur own." Some idea of the crowd appeal the former greats still have vas displayed here last Sunday afternoon when the Montrealers drew more than people to he Montreal Forum against former members of Deuoit Red Wings. Harmon said the turnout was good considering "we had on television." Harmon said the net proceeds in that game likely will be about with 75 per cent of that amount going to the Richelieu Clubs, a French-language service organization. The remainder will benefit Quebec's Society for Crippled Children. Red Storey, former NHL referee, is a member of the board and acts as referee for every game the Montreal group plays. He is chiefly responsible for some of the flair and flamboy-ancy that goes with the game. Storey comes up with the weirdest penalty calls in history to liven up the proceedings.
