Aussie sprinter furious MELBOURNE (Reuter) Australian woman sprinter Raelene Boyle, double sprint gold medallist at the Christchurch Commonwealth Games, threatened to quit track and field today if she is not allowed to run in Canada. Last Saturday, Raelene, 22, was invited to run in the Toronto Star Maple Leaf Indoor Games and other races in Canada and the United States, and was to have left Australia today or Thursday. But the Australian Amateur Athletics Union whose sanction she needs to allow her to compete overseas, says she cannot go unless she is accompanied by a manager whose yipfiuws would have to be paid for by Canada, and not until a detailed itinerary is supplied. Raelene objected to such an escort, saying: "What do they think I am, a three-year-old? I'm extremely disappointed. "If I can't go overseas. 111 quit running this season and I won't compete in the national titles."

Remove red line -Boucher NEW YORK (AP) Frank Boucher, who gave hockey the red line in 1943, now wants to take it away. Boucher began to worry about the sport during its formative years. He still worries about it. Boucher, always the in- novator, suggested the in- troduction of a red line, divid- ing the ice in half. The rule worked so well that its introduction generally is used to mark the start of hockey's modern era. But Boucher, who spent 30 years as a player, coach and general manager of New York Rangers of the National Hockey League, now says the red line has outlived its usefulness and hockey should take it out of the game. "The game has said Boucher, elected to the Hall of Fame in 1958. "Now there is too much play in the neutral zone because everybody has become so expert at the art of forechecking. I think to com- bat they have to bring the blue lines closer together and allow teams to pass from their own zone to the blue line of the other team. That would open the game up the same way the red line did." Still active at 73, the longtime New York hockey great was in town in conjunction with publication of his memoirs, When the Rangers Were Young. "I wouldn't want to be play- ing in this era. I played a dif- ferent style. I never shot the puck into the zone. I always carried it in. To my way of thinking, hockey is a game of possession of the puck and the puck in is just giving up that possession."
