The Kings, down 34 at one stage, lost 4-2 to the Sabres who moved within seven points of fourth-place Toronto Maple Leafs and the final playoff berth in the National Hockey League's East Division. After the Kings scored their first goal at of the final period, they asked for a meas- urement of Buffalo goalie Rocky Fair's stick. The Kings won their point, Farr was given a two-minute penalty, putting the Sabres two men short at and the team was fined for the illegal stick. But the Kings didn't score with Mike Robitaille and Doug Rombough, representing Farr, in the penalty box.

Run Clubs seem to have a way of keeping everything that they accomplish a big secret Why, I don't know! The member- ship's are comprised of safety concious, level headed people who m most cases are respected citizens of their communities. But when the various clubs have a function of any kind, K usually not too well publicized The end result of this Is that only the very interested few are aware of the large numbers of people involved in a highly interesting, very safe sport; that is Gun Club competition I honestly can't think of an accident in my life at an organized shoot of any kind That, I think is a record that probably no other sport can equal "Not very many clubs in the you say I will endeavour to name the clubs that I personally know of. and I'm sure that there is some Gun Clubs that exist, that I will miss.
