Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 5, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta 14 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday, February 5, 1975 Woman boxer next? NEW YORK (AP) The chairman of the New York State Athletic' Commission contended Tuesday flia.t licensing women as box- ers would erode the sport's image as the "manly art of self defense." Furthermore, Edwin Dooley argued in- an af- fidavit submitted in state supreme court, the "licensing of women as professional boxers would at once destroy the image that attracts serious boxing fans and bring professional box- ing into disrepute." Dooley's arguments were in response, to a suit brought by Jackie Towanda to compel the commission to issue her a licence. Justice Harry B. Frank reserved decision. Dooley said that the state legislature vested complete authority in the commission to regulate boxing. Whatever protective devices available to women boxers, Dooley said, would not be suf- ficient to protect their "reproductive organs and breasts." Gabriel wants more money for extra games "TRY ANti STOP US" Coming to 1090 CHEC HAMILTON (CP) Tony Gabriel, a wide receiver with Hamilton Tiger-Cats, told a court hearing Tuesday he would have sought a higher salary from the Canadian Football League club if he had known he was expected to play in 16 games last season. In a civil action against the football club, Gabriel is seek- ing additional pay for the two extra games added by Eastern Football Conference clubs last season. Previously, the EFC had played a 14-game schedule and it was on this basis that Gabriel contends he signed a three-year contract covering 1972-1974. He told the hearing before Mr. Justice Dennis O'Leary that his contract provided an annual basic salary of in 1972, in 1973 and in 1974. But, said Gabriel, his per- game pay dropped to 125 in 1974 because of the two added games. Under questioning by Ticat lawyer George D. Finlayson, Gabriel testified that at the time he negotiated his contract, he was not aware the EFC clubs planned to change to a schedule. Garney Henley, another Ticat player, testified that he, too, would have demanded a higher salary if he had known he would be asked to play 16 games. Finlayson asked Henley if, during his 1973 contract negotiations, he had asked how many games he was to play. "No Henley replied. "At that time I assumed it was it had been in the past-so I assumed it was the same." The hearing continues today. Pettifer still leads SASKATOON (CP) Steve Pettifer of the University of British Columbia Thunderbrids continues to lead the Canada West Univer- sity Athletic Association Basketball League in scoring.

So, here goes: To Roger Crozier: Stay healthy! Dispel those ugly rumors that the Buffalo Sabres are so desperate for a big league goalie that they'd trade Richard Martin for Gilles Villemure and some other superannuated crook. To Bobby Clarke: Your apology to Clarence Campbell last November was overdue. When three goons gang up on one player in the penalty box, they deserve to be suspended. Misguided loyalty to teammates is too reminiscent of Watergate. To Marcel Dionne: Appointing you as captain of the Red Wings is a classic example of child psychology. When the teacher has an unruly kid, he makes him a monitor or something. Maybe you'll grow into your responsibility. P.S. I enjoy watching you play hockey. To All Overpaid Journeymen Hockey Pros: Treasure your lucrative long term contracts. You won't be seeing them again soon. When sugar is pricing itself out of the market, can 80 game schedules involving so so athletes be far behind? To Ken Dryden: Your sabbatical shows. To Garry Young: Before leaving the California Seals, you really hurt that team. Whatever possessed you to unload most of your best for so called solid defencemen? It doesn't show up in the league standings. The most flagrant example: In trading Walt McKechnie for Jim Neilson, you gave up more than a player you forfeited the Seals' turn in the intraleague draft. If you hadn't done that, you might have ac- quired either Neilson or some Ranger farmhand for the 000 price and kept McKechnie to boot. I could understand your doing this if you were trying to get even with Charlie Finley, but by then.the team was under league ownership, so in the long run all you did was damage professional hockey. To Jack Gordon: Don't imitate Garry Young out of desperation. Instead, if you're going to finish out of the playoffs, sit tight and wait for a contender to get desperate. If you trade on your own terms, you may emerge as well as the Kings did last year when for Gilles Marotte and a distant future draft choice they acquired instant regulars Mike Murphy, Tom Williams, Gene Carr and Sheldon Kannegiesser from nervous Emile Francis. To Harry Sinden: You certainly got the worst of the three way deal involv- ing Walt McKechnie, Derek Sanderson and Jim Neilson. Sanderson may have ticked you off, but in normal circum- stances you would never have traded him, even up, for a McKechnie. Pride goeth before a fall! To Scotty Bowman: I presume you have your resume all neatly typed. You're going to be needing it..Despite trumpeting your intention to follow the successful hockey formula practiced by the Russians, your team hasn't exactly scintillated. You have mishandled your goaltenders. You have good men rusting in the press box (or gathering splinters on the You are directly or indirectly responsible for the fact that several Canadiens have jumped to the WHA or have asked to be traded. At this point your critics consist of the entire city of Montreal, which retains vivid memories of Toe Blake. The only thing going for you is the patronage of Sam Pollock, and even he could have a contract taken out on you. And if Pollock should supplant Clarence Campbell as NHL presi- dent (so one ridiculous rumor you'd better have your suitcases packed for instant departure. To Sam Did anyone ever tell you that you are the most overrated executive in hockey? I will. You inherited a superb team with over flowing minor and junior league affiliates, traded off surplus players in your organization for draft choices and garnered some championships. Big deal. Anyone else could have done the same with what you had to work with. But the rest of the league is catching up, because in all those years you failed at key intervals to replace some of your aging stars. Frank Seiko left you. Jean Beliveau, Henri Richard and Ralph Backstrom. Richard is still probably your best center (unless his broken ankle puts him out of Despite having the choice of the two best French Canadian juniors until 1969, and 15 first round draft picks since 1970, you haven't develop a single new center of quality Jac- ques Lemaire and Peter Mahovlich really are left Why couldn't you have picked a Darryl 'Sittler, a Tom Lysiak, an Andre Savard, a Marcel Dionne, a Bill Barber? They were all there when it'was your turn to draft. Why can't you trade for an established center? Are you so obsessed with future draft choices that you trip over the present? Accept the NHL presidency if it's offered to you; you've grown stale in your job. To Clarence Campbell: You were the father of expansion, and some of your franchises are coming back to haunt you: The California Seals are limping along with their birth defects. Expansion diluted hockey teams are experiencing declines in atten- dance. Bloated salaries are paid to marginal hockey players. Red ink for the owners. A royal screwing for the knowledgeable fans.
