So says Carl Morton Concentration the secret WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (CP) Carl Morton, who suddenly blossomed into Montreal Expos' ace pitcher in 1970 the National League's rookie-of-the-year, believes concentration is the secret of success. Has no problems >vith drag abuse NEW YORK (CP) Frank Torpey, former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who laid down his gun to become head of the National Hockey League's security division, says no com- plaints of drug abuse among hockey players have come to his attention. "Drug abuse is a matter of concern, but I have received no complaints along those said the 41-year-old security chief, whose appointment was announced by NHL President Clarence Campbell in October. He had been asked in an in- terview about the drug situation in die wake of last week's an- nouncement that organized baseball is instituting a drug- control program because of sus- picions that some major-league It's Here Now THE NEW 1971 YAMAHA 250 DTI A 250 Enduro with a 2-stroke engine Jhat develops 23 h.p. delivered through a 5 speed gearbox. See the complete 1971 Yamaha Line available now YAMAHA players have been using mari- juana, hallucinogens or other drugs. Torpey, a broadly-built, quiet-spoken man with grey, wavy hair, has been busy mov- ing into a new suite of offices over Penn Station, next to Madi- son Square Garden. He has visited 10 of the 14 NHL cities since his appoint- ment, including the homes of the three Canadian teams, ap- pointing investigators on a re- tainer basis to be the eyes and the ears of the security division. Irwin Blehm, a former RCMP inspector from Calgary, will join Torpey on March 1 as his chief assistant. The security division's main duties, as outlined by the league president in October, are to guard pro hockey against intru- sions by gamblers and under- world elements and provide an investigative service which can be used by any player contem- plating going into business. "Apparently the interest in gambling on hockey has been much greater in Canada than said Torpey. "As far as I know, no "puck line' is published in any U.S. city. those I talk wittr in the U.S. indicate an increase in gambling interest is bound to grow. As soon as gamblers real- ize there is enough money around to make it profitable, they will set up an informed handicapping operation." 'It is very difficult for player to avoid an association with someone determined to form such an said Torpey. "We want him to be able to recognize an undesirable approach how casual ques- tions about player injuries team morale, etcetera, may provide a garriler with inside information which give him betting edge." Morton is a serious fellow, with quiet confidence, and ex- remely observant while playing with his first big league club. "I feel I have learned a lot with Morton said at he Expos' spring training camp Monday. "There are wonderful oppor- tunities to learn, and I have earned much just by watching other pitchers, especially the accepted stars." Morton is a six-footer, who weighs 190 pounds and has a shock of flaming red hair. Ac- tually he is a converted out- fielder, but played at that posi- tion for only two seasons in the minors. He was a pitcher, still in the minors, the next two seasons, and then was grabbed by Mont- real from Atlanta Braves in the 1968 expansion draft. la Montreal's wobbly 1969 opening National League sea- son, Morton's won-loss record wasn't impressive. It was 0-3. He was sent to the class AAA Vancouver affiliate where he finished 8-6. Then last season Morton ap- peared to put it all together and his work was a welcome revela- tion as he wound up with a sparkling 18-11 record. "He could have been a 20- gaine winner for genera! maffliger Jim Fanning said. "He's a clever fellow, an advo- cate of positive thinking." Morton spent part of the win- ter in Montreal and part at his home in Tulsa, Okla. He is mar- ried and has a four-year-old son. He has been impressed with Montreal as a city. He describes it as "unique." "There are three cities in that category that I know about Montreal, San Francisco and New Orleans. "Montreal has many activities and its historic spots. It's what I would call a receptive city. You have to get adjusted to it." Morton feels the Expos will be an improved club this season positive knows his pitching should be improved, then "other things will take care of themselves." He let it be known that his son, Brent, is already interested in baseball and is a sharp, ob- servant student. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Detroit Red Wings, wheeling and dealing at an almost frantic pace as they busily rebuild their National Hockey League teanr, may not be through at the mar- ketplace yet. 'We'd like to trade tor a goalie and another defence- says Doug Barkley, who has welcomed eight new players as a result of. three major trades since he took over coach last month. "But there aren't that many good goalies available for trade." The Wings have shuHed bod- ies so quickly that between the trades and an annoying string of injuries, Baridey hasn't had an opportunity to get his whole team together for a full prac- tice. "But I feel the players we've picked up will help us build a contender-perhaps as soon as next said the former NHL defenceman, who inherited the Wings' coaching job when Sid Abel resigned as general manager and Ned Harkness moved into the front office. START SWAPPING A few days after the execu- tive change, the Wings swapped star left winger Frank Mahov- licli to Montreal for Mickey Redmond, Billy Collins and Guy Charron. played only tw< games and then got Barkley said. "Then Charron caught the chicken pox and was out for awhile." The Wings then swapped Bruce MacGregor and Larry Brown to New York for Arnie Brown, Mike Robiteille and nrinor leaguer Tom Miller. "Robitaffle had a goal and an assist in bis first game for us and then hurt his said Barkley. Next the Wings sent Garry linger and Wayne Connelly to St. Louis Blues for Red Beren- son and Tim Ecclestone. Players come and go with the Wings but always there is Gor- die Howe, hockey's all-time scoring champ with 784 goals 21 of them this season. Howe missed Sunday's game New York Hangers because o the flu. "Howe was feeling so badl; Saturday night that he scorec one goal and assisted on three Barkley said jokingly, HURTS WRIST AGAIN Howe aggravated a wrist li jury in that game against Buf falo Sabres and Bruce Norris president of the Red Wtags, sai Monday Howe is being given week or so to recuperate. Norris said Howe is expectec to spend the week in Florid Detroit. The Sabres, however, ave played two more games lan Detroit and Vancouver. Vancouver jumped into a 2-0 ad in the first period on goals y Ted Taylor and Andre Boud- as, his first of two, but the anadiens, spurred on by John erguson, their rugged left ringer who engaged Taylor in Record books take beating MONTREAL (CP) A team hat scores a goal while playing hart-handed has almost a five- o-ooe chance of winning the ame.

Fla. (AP) Base- ball great Hank Aaron was introduced to golf great Jack Nicklaus. "What kind of golfer are Nicklaus asked. said Aaron, the Atlanta Braves' slug- ging outfielder. "It took me 17 years to get hits in baseball... I did it in one afternoon on the golf course."

Canucks took the lead again in the third period when Boudrias scored his second goal on a pass from Wayne Maki but llarc Tardif tied the game at the mark while Vancou- ver's Dale Tallon was serving a penalty for interference. Ferguson won a clear-cut de- cision over Taylor in then- fight in the second period and the Vancouver winger required two stitches to close cut to the head. After the fight at of the period, J. C. Tremblay scored two minutes later for the Uana- diens and another minute later Jacques Lemaire added the Canadiens' second goal to tie the score. The tie enabled the to extend their unbeaten string to six games. In the only game tonight, Bos- ton Bruins the Sabres in Buffalo. Short-handed goals give edge more short-handed goals to their record last week, both by veteran right winger Ed West- fall. The Bruins now have 20 such goals for the season, a record which broke the previous mark of 14 set by Chicago Black Hawks hi 1964-65. WestfaU has seven to his credit, one fewer than Dave Keon of Toronto Maple Leafs. Keon recently broke the record of seven set by Jerry Toppazzi of Boston In 1956-58. Three of Westfall's short-handed goals were winners. The short-handed goal record Is only one of several the Bruins will set this season. Already, centre Phi! Esposito has two marks to his credit. He scored his 50th goal of the sea- son last Saturday at Los Ange- les against the Kings, breaking his own record for most goals by a centre in one season which he set two seasons ago with 49. Americans dominate EDMONTON (CP) Ameri- can competitors did well in the Grand Prix snowmobile cham- pionships here Sunday, winning two events and coming in sec- ond and third in others. The major winner of the two- day championship racing was Darrell Triber of Spokane, Wash., who averaged 62 m.p.h. on the Speedway Park track to win the 800 c.c. class. Stanely Donald of Hudson Hope, B.C., was second. Jim Noble, Ellensburg, Wash., was second in the 650 class behind Ron Meldau of Ed- monton, while Bill Gray, Couer de Laine, Idaho, won the 440 event with Triber second. Esposito also had 415 shots OB goal, one more than the pre- vius record established by Bobby Hull of Chicago two sea- sons ago when Hull set the record of 58 goals in a season. Esposito has 18 games left In which to pick up 14 points to break his mark of 126 points in 1968-69. He now has 113 points, 14 more than rurmer-uo Bobby Orr of the Bruins. Another Bruin, right winger Ken Hodge, is third with 86 points, but Hull cracked the mo- nopoly Boston had on the top four positions when he collected eight points last week to move into a tie with John Bueyk of Boston. Each now has 81 points, but Hull has 39 goals, two more than Bueyk. Hull scored three goals Sun- day against Los Angeles, the 27th time in his career he has scored at least three goals in one game. He broke the record of 26 he shared with Maurice (Rocket) Richard of Montreal Canadiens. for all look what you coll pull In a terrific ear from College Mercury.
