One of the reasons that Boston Bruins are struggling this season is that goaltender Eddie Johnson's eyes don't match up with the holes in his mask . ... Remember Jim Kelly, No. 91518? ... He has been receiving hundreds of letters and cards since his name has appeared in Jce Falls' sports column ... He says he wants to thank everyone for their cards and letters . . , even the guy who thinks the best sportswriter in the world is "Joe Falls" ... It must be great to be the champs ... It seems like once a week since the Super Bowl a different member of the Miami Dolphins has gotten his name in print . . . The Super Bowl seems to have brought out the humor in them all . . . This week's offerings come first from Marlin Briscoe, wide receiver . . . "It was great to be traded from Buffalo Bills to Miami . . . The money is important but so is the exposure . . . Howard Coseil never comes to Buffalo" . . . And secondly Howard Twilley, wide receiver . . . "We named our new son Michael Glenn . . . We were going to name him Don Shula until they traded for Marlin Briscoe." . . . Shula is Miami's head coach. Do you play chess? ... I play at it, but apparently there are two child prodigies who are making quite a stir . . . One is seven-year old Oscar Alejandro Mass of Jaurez, Mexico. It seems he set the chess world on fire by losing four straight ... By losing, you may ask? . . . Most of his opponents were 50 years of age and over and had played the game some 30 years or more . . . New York City boasts of five-year old. Robert LeDonne, whose talents are extraordinary . . . Both are considered brilliant at their age and are being compared to world champion Bobby Fisher ... It seems one area of the game they need brushing up at is, they fall victim to traps . . . The latest statistics from the professional rodeo ranks show that it is still too early for Canadian cowboys as not one is shown in the top five of any category . . . But you can bet they will be heard from shortly . . . When the Lethbridge Midget Elks battled Fernie Junior B's to a 6-6 stalemate last Saturday the cry went up for an exhibition match between the Elks, who play in the Southern Alberta Juvenile League, and the Junior B Native Sons- . . The Elks went unbeaten through the juvenile league while the Sons have maintained a first place lead for most of the season ... in the Central Alberta Junior B League. . . I for one would like to see the game played . . . Why not play it for charity or retarded children?. . . With the right kind of promotion it could be a sell-out . . . Not only that, it would settle the issue once and for all ... . What do you say fellows? New York Islanders of the National Hockey League have a new scout in western Canada . . . Lethbridge's Gary Kirk has taken over the territory vacated by his old friend Earl Ingarfield . . . Ingar-field was named coach of the Islanders a few weeks back . . . The Milk River Elks Sportsman's Dinner has been scheduled for March 31 and chairman Bob Matlock promises a gala affair . . . He still won't believe the dinner was as good last year as people say ... "How could it be?" he says, "I wasn't the chairman?" . . Casey Stengel, former manager of the New York Yankees and Mets, explained recently why he never visited Montreal ... "I would have been faced with two languages I can't speak . . . . French and English . . Aut Erickson of Lethhbridge, now an assistant coach with Ingarfield at New York, when asked what it was like coaching hockey on the plains of Arizona he replied . . . "You aren't bothered by woodpeckers, that's for sure ... Aut coached the Phoenix Roadrunners. SUDBURY, Ont.

Thursday night, Murphy said: "We played our type of game, they just got behind and we kept putting on the pressure." WRECKED ON GUARDS Murphy generally sticks to the takeout game which worked to perfection and forced Smith to abandon most times his draw game, going after rocks which 'New Brunswick left in the house. Oh a number of occasions, Northern Ontario stones wrecked on guards. Murphy got all his points on four ends-three on the first, two on the third, stole two more on the fourth and picked up four on the sixth. The Manitoba-Ontario game featured a brilliant shot by Rhodes on the 10th end which earned him two points to force the extra end.
