Mahovlich will miss six weeks because of a knee injury he suffered in Los Angeles Saturday. Joins IT A circuit Keino turns professional NEW YORK (AP) - Kip Keino, Kenya's famed distance runner, did a sudden turnaround Monday and signed a professional track contract which he admitted 'will cause shock in Nairobi." The International Track Association (ITA) signed the Olympic steeplechase champion to a three-year deal, and Keino then departed for his home in Africa. "Im pretty sure I will lose my job, and my home, because of this decision," the 33-year-old Keino said. 'I asked my superiors before if it would be okay for me to turn pro. They said no." Keino said Friday in Toronto he would not run for money. Keino said that since coming to North America for a series of events he had refused ITA president Mike O'Hara's bids in Los Angeles, Albuquerque, San Francisco and Toronto. O'Hara visited Keino in Nairobi last fall. MADE LAST TRY Then, O'Hara gave it one final shot. 'He asked if I could spare a half-hour at the airport," Keino said. 'I said okay and we had a long discussion. I finally decided that, after running for my country for many years, I would now run for Kip." Neither Keino nor O'hara would disclose the financial arrangement, but it was reported in Nairobi last week that a $4,-800 bonus had been offered. The ITA inaugurates its program March 24 at Los Angeles featuring such other track and field names as Jim Ryun, Bob Seagren, Randy Matson, Jim Hines and Bob Hayes. A Ryun vs. Keino mile run now gets top billing. Event miners in the weekly program receive $500 and expenses, run-ners-up $250, third place finishers $100 and fourth $50. Keino's occupation has been as chief physical education officer for the Kenyan Police College in Kijango. His salary was nominal, but living quarters were for his family that includes six children. 'I called my wife Sunday night," he said. "She was upset at first, but now she understands. I hope to bring my family to the United States while I run some day, but not this season." Keino said he had no plans to become a permanent resident of the U.S. "I will base myself in Los Angeles and go home after a few months," he said. Keino won the 1,500-metre run at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City and took the 3,000-metre steeplechase at the 1972 Games in Munich. ANDY CAPP MONTREAL (CP) - Despite the fact he missed 14 games early in the schedule because of earlier knee surgery and has been hampered by the injury since then, Bobby Orr of Boston Bruins today continues to make his mark on the National Hockey League's records for defencemen. Earlier this season Orr surpassed Doug Harvey's career-points total of 540. He brought his career total to 573 in 442 regular-season games last week when he added seven points in Boston's three games. As a result Orr now has an average of 1.30 points per game, the highest ratio of all players with 500 or more points in league history. Harvey, who had a brilliant career with Montreal Canadiens, New York Rangers, Detroit Red Wings and St. Louis Blues, collected his 540 points in 1,113 regular-season games, an average of .485. EARLY ABSENCE Despite his early-season absence, Orr has counted 61 points in 38 games, an average of 1.60 points-per-game. One week ago he was tied for 20th place in the scoring race, but today he has moved into a tie for 14th spot, 19 points behind team-mate and leading scorer-Phil Esposito. Esposito, who has averaged 1.54 points-per-game this season and 1.27 for his career, has 848 points in 665 games and now is second to Orr in the all-time list on a point-per-game basis. But neither Orr nor Esposito will be in action tonight to improve their status as only two games are scheduled. Toronto Maple Leafs visit New York Islanders in one contest, while Vancouver Canucks travel to St. Louis to meet the Blues. Meanwhile, Esposito counted six points last week to boost his league-leading total to 80 points and a five-point edge over runner-up Stan Mikita of Chicago Black Hawks, whose total in eludes a league-leading 52 assists. CLARKE THIRD A third centre, Bobby Clarke of Philadelphia Flyers, is also third in the scoring race with 71 points. Jacques Lemaire of Montreal, also a centre, is fourth with 69 points, three more than right winger Rod Gilbert of New York Rangers. Another right winger, Mickey Redmond of Detroit, scored three goals last week and continues to lead the goal-getting department with 36, two more than Esposito and Lemaire. Redmond has 61 points and is tied with Orr and Rick MacL-eish of Philadelphia. The Montreal goaltending combination of Ken Dryden, who is currently out of action with a back injury, Wayne Thomas and Michel Plasse, continues to lead the Vezina Trophy race with a combined average of 2.23. Ed Giacomin and Gilles Ville- mure of New York Rangers, along with Peter McDuffe, have the second best combined average at 2.45. In Montreal centre Pete Mahovlich of Montreal Canadiens will be out of action for six weeks because of a knee injury suffered in the National Hockey League club's 7-1 win against the Kings in Los Angeles Saturday night. Mahovlich, who returned here Sunday night, suffered a dislocation of the left knee cap and a sprained ligament, a team spokesman said Monday. The lanky centre, who had 13 goals and 32 assists in 52 games this season, had his left leg placed in a cast following Monday's medical examination. Th� spokesman said the cast will remain for four weeks. Lazaruk rifles in hat-trick The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns came back from a 2-0 first period deficit and doubled the score 8-4 against Purity Bottling in City Recreation Hockey League action Monday night. Wayne Lazaruk paced the Pronghorns with a three-goal performance while teammate Dennis Kisio added a pair. Mike Weisgerber, Wally Tu-now and Wayne Bowes rounded out the scoring. Dan Paskuski, Al Johnson, Tom Yip and Rick Pankrat replied for the Bottlers. Miners' Library also came back from a 2-0 first period deficit and defeated the Lethbridge Community College 7-4 last night. Garry Canadine and Jerry Heck tallied twice for the Min- ers' while singles came off the sticks of Brian Murkin, Bob Boswell and Larry Boulton. Cam Hodgen notched a pair of markers in a losing cause while Jerry Proskurnek and Greg Edeen chipped in with singles. Meanwhile the Pronghorn's netminder, Rod Morrice, lead all blockers with a 3.32 average after 22 games. On the other hand, LCC goal-tender, Pat Walsh, finds himself in an unique situation leading the penalty leaders. Walsh, who seems to be physically fighting his opponents away in front of the net, is the badman of the league with 77 minutes while Dan Paskuski follows right behind with 61 minutes in the sinbin.

But when a once-great team as their Boston Bruins goes into a skid, personal feelings invariably are laid aside and changes are made. Johnson was fired as coach of � the Bruins Monday and given another- job in the organization. But to the end, Johnson had hoped somehow the Stanley Cup champions would snap out of their slump. The former Hall of Fame de-fenceman almost blew his top after the all-star game in New York last week when it was suggested that perhaps the Bruins weren'L irainiag as they should, or that they were living in too much luxury. "How do you know?" he retorted when asked whether it might have something to do with the slump. And to another question whether he was keeping check on his players, he fumed: "No! Do you?" Sinden, managing director of the Bruins, picked Bep Guid-olin, coach of Boston Braves, the Bruins' American Hockey League farm team, to succeed Johnson. Guidohn, 47, is known to run a tight ship. END TO RUMORS Guidolin's appointment laid aside, at least for the time being, rumors that Sinden was just biding his time in the front office and was itching to get back to running the team from the bench as he did three seasons ago. Tom Fitzgerald in the Boston Sunday Globe quoted Sinden as saying several days before Johnson was sacked: "When I came back to the Bruins last fall, I signed a contract as managing director for duties the title indicates. "But I probably shouldn't say I would never do some coaching under certain circumstances. Sometime in the future, if we get into a predicament where we couldn't find the right man for the job immediately. I might step hi-but. only on an interim basis." Bui; Sinden found Guidolin and Johnson was elevated to an administrative job. Johnson received little credit, nor did he claim any, for his preceeding two-year record of two first-place finishes in the East Division of the National Hockey League and one Stanley Cup. During those two years, his team scored 111 wins, tied 18 games and lost only 27 in 156 regular-season games. Fitzgerald says he feels "not even the ideal coach, comprising the positive qualities of Dick Irvin, Hap Day and Toe Blake, could do all that much for the Bruins until they start doing more for themselves." Johnson was telling winters in Boston before he got the axet "All we need to get back into things is a little winning streak. And we're capable of something like that." The third-place Bruins, 13-8-4 on the road, have 26 games left to play. They go on a six-game road trip tlus week-Philadelphia, Minnesota, Chicago, Vancouver, Los Angeles and California. Ron Ward, the scoring leader in the World Hockey Association, is playing with a painful pinched nerve in his left shoulder, and may face an operation at the end of the season. Ward, 88-year-old centre of New York Raiders, has 39 goals and 45 assists for 84 points. "There's a rib touching on a nerve," Ward says. "It's something that's bothered me for a while, but in the last 10 or 15 games it's really started to hurt." Rick Martin of Buffalo Sabres was admitted to hospital Monday with what a team physician called an acute upper respiratory infection. Deaconess Hospital reported the condition of the National Hockey League player as satisfactory. Martin, who has scored 28 goals this season, is expected to miss the Sabres' next game Wednesday in Chicago. 533 ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE East Division Montreal . Rangers . Boston ...
