TORONTO (CP) Greg Neeld lost an eye while playing hockey for Toronto Marlboros and he's now got to work to make sure he doesn't lose his place on the club. Neeld, an 18-year-old defeceman, returned to the 1 club Sunday after having his left eye removed and played left wing in a 4-2 loss tc Hamilton Red Wings Coach George Armstrong said when asked whether Neeld will continue to play on the wing: "He's like everyone else. He's got to make the team yet." Neeld lost his left eye after being hit with a stick in an Ontario Hockey Association junior A game last Dec. 7 in Kitchener. He played Sunday with a transparent mask covering his face. In the first period of the Hamilton game he assessed a hooking penalty and said the Hamilton players treated him as he had expected. TREATMENT 'ORDINARY5 "It was ordinary he said after the game. "Some of them ran at me and I ran at some of them. One guy told me to keep my stick down or he'd wrap his around my neck, but those were the only words I heard." He said it was hard playing forward for the first time, "but I felt good and thought I skated and passed well." played pretty well for the first time said Armstrong. "He started slowly but got better as he gained confidence. He had some good scoring chances." Neeld played only one shift in the first period, but was on regularly after that. He had three good shots on goal in the second period and hit the crossbar with another. He tired in the third period. "I conked out in the third he said, "but I expected to be tired by that time." Neeld skated alone in Vancouver after he had the eye removed and started working out with the Marlies two weeks ago. The club obtained medical and legal documents exonerating them from any responsibility for injuries while Neeld is playing for them. An OHA Aofficial examined Neeld's unbreakable mask before the game and gave approval for its use. No player other than a goalie may wear a mask unless a medical certificate is issued saying it is protecting an injury. "It certainly was a proud moment for me when he stepped on the said Neeld's mother, Jean, who flew in from Vancouver to .watch the game. "I know what he has gone through the last two months and how much he wanted to play. "I was a little disappointed he played left wing instead of defence." Armstrong said he played Neeld on the forward line because "that may be where he will play." "And I wanted to relieve some of the pressure on him. On defence, if someone got by him there was only the goalie left. 'Horns host Canucks Lethbridge Longhorns have but three home games remaining in the 1973-74 Alberta Junior Hockey League schedule and one of them is tonight.

Two franchises already switched Reds9 owner has his say CINCINNATI (AP) Cincinnati Reds president Bob Howsam says Atlanta Braves may have acted prematurely in announcing they will not start Henry Aaron in a season- opening series here. "I think it's rather early to make a decision on a starting lineup because of potential injuries and so Howsam said. CHICAGO (AP) The World Football League hasn't played a game, but already two of its franchises have been shifted. At a meeting of the board of governors Monday, league president Gary Davidson said the Memphis franchise is being switched to Houston and the Boston franchise to New York. Davidson said the WFL hopes to announce details of a television contract today. The league will play its games Wednesday nights with one game each Thursday which will be televised. He said the league will play a 20-week schedule starting July 10, with a four-team playoff and a Nov. 29 championship game. The Boston franchise, origi- nally owned by Herbert Bald- win, will be operated in New York by Baldwin and Bob Schmertz. SchmerU relin- quished his New York fran- chise, which was provisionally moved to Boston but may go eventually to Portland, Ore., Mexico City, Salt Lake City or New Orleans. The league will open with 12 clubs, in eastern central and western divisions. The three champions and the best secondplace team will compete in the playoffs. Makeup of each division has yet to be determined. Other teams include Toronto, Bir- mingham, Ala., Chicago, De- troit, Florida, Philadelphia, Southern California and Washington- Baltimore. A decision is expected March 1 on the location of a Florida franchise. Baldwin and Schmertz are reported to have engineered a two-year contract to play the New York entry at Roosevelt Stadium in Jersey City, N.J. Memphis owner Steve Arnold, in shifting to Houston, said his club could have access to the Astrodome or Rice Stadium. .Plans for the Houston oper- ation will be announced in that city next week, Arnold said. Davidson said the WFL will conduct a draft of National Football League players in New York March 18-19.

Items of business include possible expansion into London, Ont., a bid for the Grey Cup fame to be played on the Prairies for the first time, and a Canadian college draft in which Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Eastern Football Conference nave four of the first 11 picks. Also to be discussed is a pro- posed change in rosters to 17 Canadians and 15 imparts, in- cluding the designated import There will be no official news releases on discussions at the opening session, beginning at a.m. Gor- don Walker, CFL publicity director, said Monday that any decisions made by the general managers of the nine CFL teams will first have to be referred to the league's executive committee, which does not meet until Thursday. HAVE FOUR PICKS The Ticats, last in the East- ern Conference in 1973 after winning the Grey Cup in 1972, automatically had second and llth picks in the collefe draft, and obtained the first and 10th selections as a result of deals with Winnipeg Blue Bombers, last in the Western Football Conference last year. "We got Winnipeg's first choice on the trade for defen- sive half Peter Bobbins and second selection when we dealt Mark Kosmos to sad Ralph Sario, Hamilton general manager. "Ottawa owned the 10th pick previously." The competition for players posed by UK WFL may hurt George Harris, a London, Ont, developer, who put op a bond at last year's CFL meeting in a bid for a league franchise. With the WFL franchise in Toronto, the Northmen, headed by Leo CahiU, the competition for players is expected to be tough enough without the entry of another southern Ontario team. As it is, the CFL could lose some of its top players. There is a chance that the 1975 Grey Cup game willbe awarded to Calgary in 1975, when the Prairie city celebrates its centennial. The CFL final never has been 'staged in any Western city except Vancouver. Ottawa also is bidding for 1975, with the 1974 final set for Van- couver. The general managers meet all day today and Wednesday morning. The EFC and WFC hold separate sessions Wednesday afternoon, and all delegates meet Thursday and again until noon Friday. Saskatchewan's George Reed and Hamilton lawyer John Agro will head a delegation from the Canadian Football League Players Association hi a meeting with nwnagemert Thursday.
