Pulford ended his playing career in Los Angeles in 1972 to become a full-time coach. He lasted' 14 years with Toronto Maple Leafs. Obviously, the Kings reflect Pulford's style, Harper said in an interview. Pulford, 39 and grey at the IGNORE 'ERA V SHE'S ONLY THROUGH THEM WHEN I'VE 'AD A Three veterans added to Hall NEW YORK (AP) Waite Hoyt remembers Billy Her- man, Bucky Harris and Earl Averill. On Monday, he remembered them in the most com- plimentary way voting along with other mem- bers of the veteran's com- mittee for their induction into baseball's Hall of Fame. The trio will join home-run slugger Ralph Kiner as new members at the exclusive shrine in Cooperstown, N.Y. .Induction ceremonies are set for Aug. 18. "Herman hit me pretty said Hoyt, his memory reaching back to baseball 's earlier days. "He was an intuitive hitter who could always seem to ad- vance the man on the hit-and- run play. He had a quick pivot and was a good operator Russell honored CALGARY (CP) Gordon Russell of Edmonton, coach with the Canadian Amateur Boxing Association, won the Air Canada Coach of the Year Award. Runners up were Doug Keary of Oakville, of the Canadian Yachting Association, and Peter Mann- ing of Guelph, Ont., of the Canadian Track and Field Association. The Executive of the Year Award in amateur sport was presented to Dr. Stuart Maddin of Vancouver, presi- dent of the Aquatic Federa- tion of Canada. around second base. He was an aggressive ballplayer in a nice way." Herman played from 1931 until 1947 with Chicago Cubs, Brooklyn Dodgers, Boston Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates and batted .304. He later managed the Pirates and Boston Red Sox but lacked the managerial longevity of Harris, who was a (major league pilot for 29 years. "Bucky was my room- said Hoyt. "And then in 1930, when he was manag- ing Detroit, he traded for me. He was also an aggressive se- cond baseman in his playing days. I wonder what the great stealers of today would think about the way he used to walk all over guys sliding in on him." Harris managed Washington, Detroit and New York Yankees, winning three American League pennants and two World Series. Hoyt didn't have as many first-hand memories of Averill. "He played in the American League while I was in the the old pitcher said. Averill, an out- fielder, compiled a .318 batting average in 12 full seasons with Cleveland, Detroit and Boston. "I heard he was a good one." That testimony came from the other members of the vet- eran's committee which judges figures out of the jurisdiction of the Baseball Writers Association of America. Besides Hoyt, the com- mittee includes former league presidents Warren Giles and Joe Cronin, former executive Bill .DeWitt, and Hall of Famers Charley Gehringer, Bill Terry, and Stan Musial. We're sorry Dianne9 Veteran Lethbridge bowler Steve Pedersen thought the headline in Monday's paper "Pedersen leads way as locals dominate" was a good one. However, in all honesty Steve didn't quite earn the headline. The story should have read "Violini leads way as locals dominate." "It's all in the said a very un- derstanding Dianne, Steve is her father. Not only did Steve not mind but the headline satisfied all the male egos that took part in the two-day rolloff. You see, Dianne led even the men. Now one will have to be careful when the Alberta rolloffs take place in Calgary Feb. 28 March 1 as Dianne stands a very good chance of leading the way again. Favell drafted quickly PHILADELPHIA (CP) National Hockey League players Doug Favell and Rick Dudley head a list of 150 players drafted Monday by the six teams in the revamped National Lacrosse League. Each team was allowed to protect 25 players in the un- iversal draft which included Canadian and United States players not already on the protected list. League president Gerry Patterson said Favell, Dudley and Michel Blanchard were designated special bonus picks in the universal draft. Favell was selected by Philadelphia, Dudley by Long Island and Blanchard by Montreal. Favell, a goalie for Toronto Maple Leafs of the NHL, was a forward last season with Philadelphia Wings of the NLL. Dudley, who plays hockey for Buffalo Sabres, was a first-team all-star last season with Rochester of the NLL. He scored 81 goals in 28 games. The first player selected in the draft was Dave Durant, who scored 42 goals and 69 assists in 24 games with Co- quitlam, B.C., Adanacs, to win the Western Lacrosse Association scoring cham- pionship. temples, rebuilt slowly in Los Angeles and this season put it all together. Harper still can remember the nights he played against Pulford when the Montreal- Toronto game was the hottest show in town. "He was a plugger, a fellow who kept in there fighting, who always was a nuisance for opposing Harper said. "We've got forwards that are just like that. Our whole team they just don't give up and that's very much the way Pulford played." Harper, who made the Ail- Star team for the first time this year, played 10 years with Montreal Canadiens. He was shipped to Los Angeles in 1972. Harper had played on five Stanley Cup championships teams, Pulford on four. Pete Stemkowski, another ex-Leaf playing with New York Rangers, always has a story about how hard it was in Toronto whenever a younger player starts to wilt from one of coach Emile (Cat) Francis' workouts. "You never knew with Punch how long a workout might Stemkowski recalls. "It might last 90 .minutes or all day." Pulford admits that the To- ronto experience "influences my thinking to a certain de- gree." Philadelphia plays a close type of hockey not-too different from the way we play." The Canadiens and the Kings are locked in a tight struggle for the lead in the Norris Division. Each has lost only nine games with five- eighths of the schedule com- pleted. On the road, they have the best records in the National Hockey losses apiece. Pulforcl said one of the rea- sons the Kings do so well on the road is that their style is consistent. "I think some teams, when they are on the road, tend to play a little more open because they are not in front of their own fans. And when teams play that way it sort of helps us play our system." BERNIEGEOFFRION Geoffrion quits, won't say why Foreman making LOS ANGELES (AP) George Foreman's statement that he might have been drugged for his title fight with Muhammad Ali was dis- counted Monday by the world heavyweight boxing cham- pion. Ali said that if anything was amiss, Foreman should have said something earlier. Ali said Foreman "can't believe he lost" and that's why he was making excuses. Foreman, in an interview, with ABC television com- mentator Howard Cosell aired Sunday, said: "Ten days before the fight I was struck with an unexplained weakness. I thought I might have been drugged. The fight should have been cancelled." Foreman did not elaborate. In a meeting with Los Ange- les Mayor Thomas Bradley, Ali said: "As hard as he fell, he's lucky the canvas was soft." ATLANTA (AP) Bernie (Boom Boom) Geoff rion, who used, his' colorful French- Canadian personality to sell hockey in the Deep South, resigned as coach of Atlanta Flames Monday night, and refused to divulge his reason. "It's a personal thing and that's all there is to Geoff- rion said. Cliff Fletcher, general man- ager of the National Hockey League team, said Fred Creighton of Brandon, Man., a veteran minor league coach, will replace The Boomer as Flames' coach. Geoffrion will remain with the team as an assistant to Fletcher. "It's a sad day Geoffrion said. "I have to make this decision. I got more pleasure out of coaching the Atlanta Flames for 2V4 years than I did playing for the Montreal Canadiens or coaching for the New York Rangers. "But even though I love the game so, I have my reasons and I had to make the decision, and I guarantee you that Cliff won't regret it." The 44-year-old hockey Hall of Famer was a popular sports figure in Atlanta, where he constantly helped lure large crowds to Watch an expansion team. The Flames set an NHL record of 78 points for a first- year expansion club in 1972-73 and last season reached the playoffs, losing in the first round to the ultimate Stanley Cup. champion Philadelphia Flyers. Atlanta is in a fight for a playoff berth this season, cur- rently last 'in the four-team Patrick Division race, only one point behind third-place New York Islanders. Atlanta has a 22-20-10 record. Geoffrion's over-all record as Flames' coach was 77-92- 39. He coached New York Rangers during the 1968-69 season, compiling a 22-18-3 mark before resigning because of a stomach ailment. He said Monday his health was not a factor in his resignation. Creighton, 41, will be mak- ing his coaching debut in the NHL Wednesday night when the Flames meet Boston Bruins on home ice. As a minor league coach, Creighton never had a losing campaign 12 seasons. He car- ried Charlotte Checkers to three championships in the Eastern Hockey League and won a Central Hockey League title as general manager- coach of Omaha, the Flames' farm club. His three-year record at Omaha was 92-68-33. The Flames named Aldo Guidolin, a scout for the team, the new coach at Omaha.

"To say the year was one of aggravation and frustration is to put it very he told the community owned club's annual meeting. High salary increases for players, an unusual number of injuries and lost ticket sales because of a players' strike combined to produce a deficit of The non-profit operation, always run.on a tight budget because of the city's small population base, was unable to absorb a jump to million1 from in the cost of salaries, travelling and team maintenance. The sharp increase contrasted with the previous year's rise of only in the same category. Auditor Harold Kay said salaries increased by Referring to the club's reserve reduced to by the deficit he said "many more years like this and we won't have very much of that cushion." Sangster, however, said he has "a tremendous amount of optimism" about the coming season. The club was planning ways to boost revenue and was in good shape for personnel. It recently announced a increase in ticket prices, to a top General manager Ken Preston said that if the World Football League, whose com- petition for players'drove up salaries, finally collapses un- der its financial troubles, the Riders will have a much greater selection of players. The priority, he said, is to beef up offensive and defen- sive lines, which last year were probably the lightest in the Canadian. Football League. He announced that Riders have put two University of Saskatchewan players on their protected list, linebacker Ron Moe and half- back Larry Remmen. Four Americans who came to Regina for five-day trials in the fall had been signed for 1975: running back Marvin Bowers, corner linebacker Steve Putnal, defensive half- back Rudy McLinon and defensive halfback Ted Pope. But running back Bobby Thompson, an import who played with riders for six years, is hot expected to return because he played out his option in 1974, Preston said. Another 'loss would be defensive tackle .Don Bahnuik, a nine-year veteran and Regina native who has moved to Edmonton, Preston said Bahnuik still wants to play football and Riders hope to negotiate an arrangement with Edmonton Eskimos for his services. Sangster predicted that back-up quarterback Randy Mattingly will play more in the coming season, with 12- TMT TttCTM Ron Lancaster undertaking more coaching duties. Sangster expressed hope that the club would not again be hit with a heavy injury load, which he said cost more than in 1974, com- pared with the budgeted for injuries. The club's financial state- ment showed that football operations last year lost compared with a loss the previous year. Community fund raising activities and interest on the reserve whittled the 1974 loss down and in 1973 yielded a small net surplus of W.C.H.L ACTION LETHBRIDGE BRONCOS vs CALGARY CENTENNIALS Tues., Feb. 4 8 p.m. LETHBRIDGE SPORTSPLEX ELRICH TIRES LTD. 402 Isl Ave S 327 6886 or 327 4445 ;
