Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, February 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 17 So does the World Football Northmen i Purchase of Argos worries CFL TORONTO (CP) The Canadian Football League is faced with the task of trying to arrange the purchase of Toronto Argonauts from John Bassett to eliminate an alleged conflict of interest. Only tentative interest in an Argo takeover has been shown by a handful of prospective buyers, including Harold Ballard, president of Maple Leaf Gardens Meanwhile, the CFL is look- ing nervously over its shoulder at the new World Football League Toronto Northmen, headed by John F. WHAPA's director blasts agreement CHICAGO The new executive director of the World Hockey Association's players' union Friday criticized the agreement between the WHA and the National Hockey League as detrimental to players of both leagues. Ron Roberts of Dallas, recently named general counsel as well as executive director of the WHA Players' Association, said at a news conference he doubted the WHA owner? made "a good deal" in resolving a court dispute with the NHL. An agreement was approved Tuesday in a Philadelphia federal court specifying that the two leagues respect each other's player contracts, play a limited number of exhibition games and drop all court claims and counter-claims Roberts said the WHA owners were "somewhat generous" and overlooked the fact the NHL's substitute for their court-challenged old reserve clause, a one-year option clause, would hinder progress of the WHA The one-year option, similar to pro football's contract, will require an NHL player to play out his option before gaining free agent status The WHA has no such contract restriction on a player Roberts, who said he also represents a dozen NHL players said the one-year option "severely restricted" bargaining power of NHL players wanting to jump to the WHA "In the long run. the WHA's progress towards gaining parity with the NHL depends on attracting more and better players, and any barrier in FERGUSON BACK TORONTO (CP) Centre George Ferguson has been recalled by Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League from their Oklahoma City Central League farm club Ferguson was sent down at the start of the season with the Leafs' promise that if he played well, he would be brought back to Toronto. getting established NHL players will impede that progress I am advising NHL players who are my clients not to sign any contract with the one-year option clause Whalers to move BOSTON (AP) New Eng- land Whalers of the World Hockey Association and the Aetna Life Insurance Co. of Hartford, Conn., are expected to announce the club's move to Hartford at separate news conferences today. The Whalers officials will meet with the press at 9 a.m. EST in Boston. Aetna, reported to be the major purchaser of the club, has scheduled a p.m. news conference in Hartford. Some 15 Hartford investors are involved in the deal. The Boston Globe reported Friday that the sale of Robert Schmertz's 37.5 per cent of the WHA champions would pave the way for the move. The seat Hartford Civic Centre, not due to open until March 1, 1975, would be the future home of the Whalers. Until they can move in, the team will play in the Eastern States Exposition Hall, in Springfield, Mass., the paper said. That is the arena used by Springfield Kings of the American League. The Whalers' move could also kill a proposed sports arena for the South Station area, The Globe reported. Outgoing Whalers' owner Schmertz was a prime mover in that million project. Schmertz owns Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association and is co-owner of the New York franchise of the World Football League. The other spinoff from a Whalers exodus could be that the American Hockey League Boston Braves, who have been playing in Bramtree, Mass., will stay in town. The Braves had been looking for a new home, The Globe said. DON KIRKHAM INSURANCE AGENCIES LTD.

The 10-rink. round-robin continues with twice-a-day draws through to next Thursday. If a playoff is required, it will be held at a.m. Friday. Saskatoon's domination began in 1969 when Joyce McKee led the province to the national title. Doranda Schoenhals retained the honors for Saskatoon the following year. Then it was Vera Pezer's turn. With Miss McKee playing second, the Pezer rink captured the Canadian title the next three years. Completing the strong Pezer rink were third Sheila Rowan and lead Lee Morrison. The rink's reputation hit a new high last year after winning its third straight title. Invited to play an exhibition match against the reigning Canadian men's champions, the Pezer foursome scored a 5-4 victory over the Winnipeg foursome skipped by Orest Meleschen. This season all four members of the Pezer rink decided to retire from competitive curling. But if the absence of the Pe- zer nnk from this year's com- petition was expected to throw the field wide open. Saskatchewan supporters can't see it Famham's rink has estab- lished a reputation of being able to "hit" as well as any man's rink The knockout game helped establish the Pezer rink as undisputed champions, and Sas- katchewan observers rate this year's provincial champions as being from the same cast. Completing the Saskatchewan rink are third Linda Saunders, second Pat McBeath and lead Donna Collins. he was in a conflict-of-interest position because of his son's interest in the rival Northmen. Gaudaur said Friday Bassett gave the league 15 days to reply to his offer "but the sale period would be extended to permit an amendment to the constitution to purchase the club." Gaudaur said the league does not want to take over the Argos, but hopes to find a suit- able private investor. Gaudaur said he had received four inquiries already, including, two long distance telephone calls, since Bassett's offer to sell for million was announced. "I don't know whether they were bona fide offers or said Hole. "But the thing that bothered me was that two of the calls were collect." Ballard, who controls Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League through his Gardens holdings, expressed mild interest in buying the Argos, but said he would first want to examine the records. Gaudaur said earlier in the week he did not want to see the WFL Northmen competing in CNE Stadium against the Argos, the most profitable club in the league. But Bassett, who had veto rights at CNE Stadium, already had given his son permission to seek a contract to play at the CNE. The CNE board of directors Friday approved such a contract in principle but passed it on for final approval to the Metropolitan Toronto executive committee. John F. Bassett Jr. said he expected no problem in getting the contract cleared through the executive committee. Metro chairman Paul Godfrey said Friday he welcomed the Northmen and disagreed with critics who thought Toronto could not support two pro football teams.

Jack Tuthill. tournament director for the tournament players division of the Professional Golfers Association, said he understood that Gleason tournament officials had requested additional security after an anonymous telephone threat had been reported at the Los Angeles Open last week.
