Hunter wants him to stay in WHA Harrison wants out, Ballard glad EDMONTON (CP) General manager Bill Hunter of the slumping Edmonton Oilers is having trouble with Jim Harrison, but he is not anxious to return the World Hockey Association centre to the National Hockey League. Harold Ballard, president of the NHL Toronto Maple Leafs, said Thursday he would like to have Harrison back. The Leafs still hold Harrison's NHL rights. "That's a different tune than Mr. Ballard was singing two years replied Hunter. "And now Harrison is under contract for this season and the next two, so I really don't care what anybody in the NHL says." Hunter refused to comment on Harrison's remark that it appears he has played his last game for Edmonton. He also refused to comment on specific trade possibilities. Harrison has missed several games this season with a bro- ken nose, a leg injury and the back now has him in traction in an Finley steps out of hockey picture NHL will peddle Seals and fast NEW YORK (CP) Con- troversial Charles 0. Finley got out of the hockey business officially Thursday when the National Hockey League an- nounced that it had purchased the California Golden Seals franchise from Finley. The price the NHL paid Fin- ley was not disclosed but ear- lier reports had placed the fig- ure at million. President Clarence Campbell of the NHL said purchase of the troubled Golden Seals was effected by a limited partnership in-which all other 15 NHL clubs became partners. But Campbell said operation of the club will be under the sole control of a general part- ner, a corporation whose sole shareholders are three NHL club Cullen of St. Louis Blues, Arthur Morse of Chicago Black Hawks and John Ziegler of Detroit Red Wings. Campbell said that "now that all necessary paper work has been completed, our first order of business will be to screen the various applicants and to accept as soon as possible an appropriate purchaser." Finley purchased the fran- chise in. Oakland for ?4.5- million in June, 1970. The club had three previous owners since its creation in the 1967 expansion. Campbell had said that Finley likely spent more than million on the club since 1970, and probably would not make a profit on the deal with the NHL. Finley, who has a heart ail- ment, has been strongly advised by his doctor to divest himself of his sports interests, which also include the world baseball champion Oakland Athletics and the Memphis Tarns of the' American Basketball Association. Campbell said the league was "pleased that we were able to accommodate Mr. Going to Calgary WINTER RATES STETSON MOTEL 10002 Madeod TraH S.

"We hope his health improves quickly and we wish him well for the future." Finley said: "It is no secret that I have been advised by my physician to divest myself of my sports interests. I regret leaving the NHL. It is not a pleasant occasion when you give up something you have enjoyed. I am Cougars defeat Bulldogs The Cardston Cougars scored an impressive 67-43 victory over the Winston Churchill Bulldogs in an exhibition high school boys' basketball game Wednesday night. Dave Remmington led the Cougars with a 17-point performance while Don Yuill chipped in with 16. Kendall Duce managed 18 points in a losing cause. The Cardston Wildcats also picked up a win as they defeated the Winston Churchill junior varsity boys' club 52-40.

The last-place Golden Seals have been losing money stead- ily since the franchise was first set up, and Campbell has said it probably was a mistake in the first place going into Oakland. But the NHL is stuck with the franchise, and will have to make the best of what was a bad situation in the first place. The Golden Seals are mired in the cellar of the West Division with only 11 wins in 56 games. The years have been often stormy for Finley in the NHL, and the league has been trying for a year to buy him out.

Nicklaus jumps into first place LOS ANGELES (AP) Jack Nicklaus, picking up where he left off in Hawaii, mastered the Riviera Country Club course with a Ove-under- par 66 and established a two? stroke lead Thursday in the final round of the Los Angeles Open golf tournament Nicklaus, who ted all tte way in the Hawaiian Open two weeks ago, was just one stroke off the record on the hilly, par-71 coarse. He missed only one fairway and two greens and played those holes one under par. Arnold Palmer, who has battled Nicklaus for the game's top spot for more man a decade, took a share of second with a three-under-par 68. The 14-year-old Palmer, who has not won for more than a year, was tied with Dave Stockton and tour sophomore Tom Watson. A group at 09, two under par, was headed by Lee Trevino and included John Schlee, Jim Simons, Tom Kite, Buddy Allin and Chuck Courtney. ALBERTA AMATEUR BOXING KAINAI GLOVES SATURDAY. FEB. 16th. 1374 P.M. FINALS Edmonton hospital. But be said the Oilers management has misrepresented his injuries. He said the popular impres- sion is that he is using his ab- sence to improve his bargaining position. Harrison quit the Maple Leafs in the fall of 1972 to join the Oilers and has led the club in scoring both years. He missed several games last season, too. "I hear Harrison wants a 10- year contract for Ballard said in Toronto. "The fact that Edmonton won't pay it suggests to me that the WHA is running out of money." Even with Harrison healthy, the Oilers face a tough situ- ation, although they lead fifth- place Vancouver Blazers by 10 points. The Blazers, who have dominated their series with Edmonton this season, have a game in hand and Edmonton has at least five top players hobbled by injury. Winger Tom Gilmore and centre Ed Joyal are out for an undetermined period, Rusty Patenaude has a bad back and defenceman Steve Carlyle is out of condition following knee surgery. Gilmore strained knee ligaments Wednesday night and has his leg in a cast. Joyal still has a cast on the wrist he broke before Christmas. Several others, including forward-defenceman Ken Baird and defenceman Bob Wall, are nursing injuries that have hampered their play. Another problem arose Wednesday when veteran Doug Barrie was banished for manhandling an .official during a game with Minnesota Fighting Saints. A WHA spokesman in California said Barrie, who leads the league in penalties, could be suspended for five games or more, depending on the report of referee Bill Friday. Hunter has called up two minor league players to try to fill the gap. The Oilers have 24 games remaining, including two at home with the They play most of their last 12 games on the road, where their record has been poor. Their over-all record has been the worst in the league since they opened with an 11-game winning streak that left them far ahead of all their pursuers.
