(AP) Jim Ryun credited the last- finisher and Kerry O'Brien credited the track as both raced to world record vic- tories Friday night in stunning dfepJays of distance running. Ryun, with an incredible mile run, tied the seven- year-old world indoor record of Tom CTKara, and returned as long of the middle-distance MIL He sat out 1969 and 1970 after the pressure of an Olympic Games defeat wrecked Ms men- tal timing. But the feet flashed1 with the old Ryun sting in the San Diego Indoor Games, despite a planned "runaway" by Chuck LaBenz of the Pacific Coast Club and team-mate John Mason. "Dick Quas made the race for Ryun said of the New Zea It's Here Now THE NEW 1971 YAMAHA 250 DTI A 250 Enduro with a 2-stroke engine thut develop! 23 h.p. delivered through a 5 speed gearbox.

I Ryun sprinted home effort- lessly as Mason made a late bid but finished second in LaBenz was next, and Quax tan Fischler's Inside Hockey MINUTES after the Chicago Black Hawks had edged the Boston Brans at Chicago Stadium recently Derek Sanderson of the Bruins beckoned to a newspaperman as if was providing a Up on a hot horse at the race track "Listen" said Sanderson, pointing to the Black Hawk, dressing room, "it's gonna be them and us in the Stanley Cup finals." It was a good tip because only one other club, the New York Rangers can even pretend to be in the same competitive class with Boston and Chicago. The question here is whether the West Division-leading Black Hawks are in that category. After the Bruins wiped out Chicago in four straight playoff games last Spring the alibi which still can be in the Windy City had it that the Black Hawks suffered from a week-long layoff while the Bruins were primed following their six-game triumph over the Rangers. The alibi of course, was so much applesauce. Chicago ost because it received mediocre goaltending from the over- rated Tony Esposito; its clever centre, Stan MiMta, was ired, as he usually is at playoff time, and because the Hack Hawks were out-coached. Instead of alternating Esposito and the superior but un- derrated Gerry Desjardins, coach Billy Reay stuck with Esposito and went down with him. When, after the series had ended, Sanderson described Tony Esposito as "a sieve" he wasn't kidding, he was right. ANDY CAPP But this is another season and the Black Hawks' ap- petite for devouring bear meat never has been greater. Apart from last year's humiliation, Chicago has nurtured a certain personality feud with Sanderson. At least a couple of Black Hawks, especially defenceman Keith Magnuson and forward Cliff Koroll, don't like Derek. Not tong ago Sanderson's name came up hi a conversa- tion with Koroll who snapped: "Now you're talking about one of the very few guys we simply can't stand. "You just look at the guy-all that smugness-and you want to take a run at him. And he's no fighter at all; just a thin-boned weakling." Magnuson, meanwhile, still remembers when Sanderson knocked down goalie Esposito last season in a cliase for the puck. "Sanderson violated one of the most basic no-nos in said Magnuson. "It's supposedly the code among all So, the ingredients for a furious finale are there. But, first, the Black Hawks have to make it past the first round and therein lies the question are the Hawks better than last year's East leaders and good enough to beat Boston? The Chicago players think so. They point to key games, such1 as the January 9th battle at Chicago Stadium, when they outscored Bobby Orr and Friends. They say they've added new muscle in 6-2, 215 pound Jerry Korab on de- fence and they're using more of Desjardins and less of Esposito- in goal. And they do have a winning habit. Bill White who has played so well on defence since becoming a Black Hawk last February, almost felt it in his hands. "You can't describe winning until you've really gotten into said White, "and then you can only feel it like something you reach out in the air and squeeze. And by the time I arrived in the Chicago dressing room you could cut it with a knife." But playing so many games against inferior opposition has dulled the Black Hawks' sense of challenge which they face against Boston. In fact the Bruins still have too much muscle, what with people like Ken Hodge, Wayne Cashman, Sanderson and Don Awrey, and too much firepower in Phil Esposito anil Bobby OIT for the Black Hawks to match. In bygone days, the Black Hawks could count on Bobby Hull and Stan MiMta for the equalizer. But Hull is talking like an old man older you get, the more you reach that point where you're doing fewer things and Mikita often acts like an old man with his seemingly chrome bad back. If Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr had the same problems, I'd pick Chicago as the Cup winner. But it's Chicago that car- ries the burden of age. So, when Sanderson says it's be- tween them and us for the he really means the winner The Rams gradually increas- ed their play in the second half and ran away with the game in the final eight min- utes of play. Bryce Thomson was outstand- ing for the Rams as he hooped 24 points and dominated the backboards throughout game. Richard Andreachuk aided the cause with eight points. For the Cougars Jack Ras- mussen netted 12 points and Donald Browns added eight. In JUymod the visiting CCHS Cougars trailed 28-16 at half time and could not catch the powerful host club in the final 16 minutes of play. Lloyd Fairbanks once again proved to be the valuable man for the Comets as he swishec 28 big points. Rick Smith, Gary Williams, and Monte Court each added 11 points to the total. For the Cougars Cal Poirler notched 11 points while Randy Royer chipped in with eight. Raymond made it a clean sweep as the Mustangs bounced the CCHS Flyers 53-31 in the preliminary "B" Boys contest. At half time the Mustangs held a 24-16 lead which they never relinquished. Wallace performed brilliant- ly for the Mustangs as he dunk- ed 33 points while Walter Zo- bel aided with eight. Kelly Keenan topped the Fly- er scorers with 10 points white Terry Kaupp and Paul Ken- wod each added eight. In Vancouver Ron Thorsen scored 25 points to lead Uni- versity of British Columbia Thunderbirds to an 82-67 vic- tory Friday night over Univer- sity of Alberta Golden Bears in Western Canada Intercollegiate basketball action. Derek Sankey scored 21 points for UBC, who led 48-36 halfway through the game, first of a best of three semi-final. Dick Deklerk scored 14 points for Alberta. Meanwhile the Univer- sity of Manitoba Bisons defeat- ed University of Winnipeg Wesmen 67-53 Friday right in the first game of their Western Canada Intercollegiate Athletic Association Basketball semi- finals. Bobby Town led Bisons with 22 points. Ted Stoesz had 16 and Greg Gilles 12. Wayne Bradshaw scored 15 points for Wesmen, fourth-place finishers during the regular season. DOM1!

By NICK FERRIS Canadian Press Staff Writer Phil Esposito broke into one National Hockey League club Friday night only to find him- self on the doorstep of another. The all-star Boston Bruin centre became the 30th National Jockey League player to score 250 or more goals when he notched his 49th this season as Boston blanked California Golden Seals 5-0. In the only other game, Phila- delphia Flyers nipped Vancou- ver Canucks 3-2. In tonight's action, Chicago Black Hawks meet the Cana- diens at Montreal, St. Louis Blues tangle with the Maple Leafs at Toronto, Pittsburgh Penguins play host to New York Hangers, Boston travels to Los Angeles to play the Kings, De- troit Red Wings are at home to Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers meet the Golden Seals at California. Toronto travels to Minnesota Sunday to play the North Stars, Detroit goes to New York, St. Louis travels to Buffalo and Chicago plays host to Los Ange- les. ONE SHORT OF 50 Esposito's marker in the final minute of the first period at Oakland moved the Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., native to within one goal of becoming the fourth member of the NHL's 50-goal club. Only three players have scored 50 or more goals in one season. Maurice (Rocket) Rich- ard became the first with Mont- real in the 1944-45 season. Team mate Bernie (Boom- Boom) Geoffrion equalled the mark 16 seasons later. Bobby Hull did it four times with Chicago, his best coming in when he notched 58 goals, an NHL season record hat could fall this year under Esposito's torrid pace. Esposito's goal and his lllth Mint, came in his 57th game this season and the Bruins have 21 games remaining. The Bruin centre set the NHL record for most pouits in one season when he counted 126 in 1968-69. Bobby Orr, Esposito's team- mate, picked up one goal and added three assists in Friday's win, but trails Esposito, the league point-leader by 13 points. NEVER IN TROUBLE The Bruins were never in any trouble at Oakland, taking a one-goal lead in the first period, adding three within a five-min- ute space in the second, and scoring the fifth before the final period was half over. The Bruins increased their East Division lead over New York to 11 points while Califor- nia remained in the West Divi- sion cellar eight points back of Los Angeles. At Vancouver, the teams ex- changed firstrperiod leads be- fore Simon Nolet broke a 2-2 tie with a 10-footer with less than 84 seconds remaining in the middle period. The Canucks are one point back of sixth-place Detroit hi the East Division. Philadelphia slipped into third place hi tha same division, one point ahead of Minnesota.
