Howg. Action came Saturday as the Native Sons dropped a 7-5 verdict Maniago, Giacomin got into battle Rangers manage to hold onto second By RON SUDLOW Canadian Press Staff Writer When Minnesota goalie Ce-sare Maniago made a bee-line for a centre-ice battle Sunday night, he drew a penalty that resulted in a power-play goal which kept New York Rangers in their precarious second-place perch in the National Hockey League's Eastern Division. The goal, second of the night for Jean Ratelle, gave the Rangers a 6-5 win over the North Stars in a furious comeback. The fracas started when Rangers goalie Ed Giacomin raced after Minnesota's Bill Goldsworthy as play moved out of the Ranger end with New York on top 5-4. "I knew exactly what I had in mind," said Giacomin. "I was going to hit him with my stick because that's what he did to me." In the ensuing melee, Maniago noticed New York had a 6-5 manpower edge in the fisticuffs. "I hesitated, but when I saw Goldy go down and two against one, I bad to go," said Maniago. GET DOUBLE MINORS . Roth Giacomin and Golds-worthy drew double minors and New York gained the edge when Maniago got a minor because, as the rule book says, he left the area of his crease during an altercation. Underline during. Giacomin didn't get a minor for that because he left before the fracas started. And Ratelle's goal proved to be decisive because J. P. Pa-rise came back with his second of the game for the North Stars In the final minute. The Rangers had trailed 4-1 early in the second period as Dermis Hextall had scored one and set up three others for Minnesota. APPOINTMENT! MR.

In other games, Buffalo Sabres stayed four points ahead of the fifth-place Wings with a 2-1 home-ice victory over Pitts burgh Penguins and the Black Hawks ended a four-game los ing skein with a 4-2 verdict over Atlanta Flames in Chicago.

J. C. Tremblay's blueline play is one of the reasons Quebec Les Nordiques are still in the battle for a playoff spot in the World Hockey Association. But Les Nordiques should at least offer a tip of the toque to Norm Beaudin and Bobby Hull of Winnipeg Jets Sunday for keeping them there. Saturday in Quebec, Tremfo-lay set up three goals to bring, his assists total to 61 and stay in the WHA's top 10 scorers as Les Nordiques nipped Los Angeles Sharks 5-3. But on Sunday, while the Sharks chewed Les Nordiques 4-2 in Los Angeles, Beaudin fired three third-period goals after Hull scored in the first and second periods as Winnipeg beat Philadelphia Blazers 5-3. The Winnipeg win kept Quebec within four points of the Blazers in the race for .the final playoff berth in the Eastern Division. Meanwhile, the lowly Chicago Cougars and New York Raiders were aiding second-place New England Whalers as they both knocked off Cleveland Crusaders, the Eastern Division leaders. BIG NEW YORK CROWD The Raiders largest crowd of the season-13,673-saw their favorites clip the Crusaders 9-5 while 9,957 in Cleveland saw their heros embarrassed 5-2. In other Sunday games, Houston Aeros scored a 4-1 home-ice win over Minnesota Fighting Saints and a meagre crowd of 2,632 in Ottawa saw the Nationals escape with a 3-2 win over Alberta Oilers. Next games are Tuesday night when Chicago is at Winnipeg, Philadelphia is at Minnesota, the Oilers travel to Houston and the Crusaders invade Ottawa. In Winnipeg, the Jets kept 11 points ahead of the second-place Aeros in the Western Division as Beaudin scored the last three goals of the game to preserve the Jets' winning streak at eight. Hull's two counters raised his season total to 40 while John Migneault scored twice for the Blazers and Danny Lawson added his 51st of the season. Gene Peacosh and Wayne Rivers each scored three for the Raiders while Ron Ward added two goals and four assists. But Peacosh said the large crowd was worth a few goals too, . Baseball's camps are free to open By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Baseball's training camps prepared today to sweep out the off-season cobwebs and finally make way for the bats . . . and balls and players and, believe it or not, spring training. The go-ahead to open shutdown camps from Florida to Arizona to California was given in New York Sunday following a three-year agreement reached at another in a series of meetings between representatives of the Major League Baseball Players Association and club owners. Among Ihose learns which announced plans to begin workouts today were Chicago Cubs, New York Yankees, Kansas City Royals and Philadelphia Phillies, In a joint statement, Marvin Miller, executive director of the Players Association, and John Gaiherin, representing the 24 club owners, said they had "reached complete agreement for a three-year term subject to ratification by the clubs and players." However, ratification appeared to be a mere formality. The settlement covers the so-called Basic Agreement, which governs active player-owner relations and the pension-benefit plan. It reportedly permits arbitration of salary disputes for players who have been in the major leagues for at least two consecutive seasons or a total of three years. John Holland, vice president and general manager of the Cubs, termed the arbitration clause "a milestone in baseball." He called the accord "a very good settlement with give arid take on both sides." Holland said he didn't think the arbitration clause would lead to management problems. "Hockey has had arbitration for several years and it's worked very well for them," he said. Chub Feeney, president of the National League, said players may "report to camp as soon as they can." He and his American League counterpart, Joe Cronin, then notified the 24 clubs that they could open their camps. The owners had refused to open the training camps pending a settlement. They were fearful of a player strike similar to last year's two-week April walkout over the pension-benefit package which first delayed and then shortened the 1972 season. SALARIES RAISED The New York Times quoted "persons close to the negotiations" as saying the owners agreed to eliminate the .conditions in their original proposal which the players objected to. Besides salary arbitration, The Times reported the minimum salary was increased to $15,000 from $13,500 in the first year of the agreement and to $16,500 by the third year. In addition, there will be an increase in the minimum World Series winners share to $20,000 from $15,000. The amount of the owners' annual contribution to the pension plan was said to be significantly greater than the present $5.94 million. The Times also said that a player with 10 years of major league service, the last five with the same club, can't be traded without his consent and a player can be placed on waivers and claimed only once-instead of twice-without the waivers being irrevocable. The reaction from management and players alike was one of relief- Both sides realized that fans were getting tired of talk and ready for runs, hits and errors. "The publicity surrounding it (the negotiations) turns fans off, and judging by phone calls and letters I received during the negotiations period that very definitely happened this year," said Frank Cashen, gen� eral manager of Baltimore Orioles. Paul Owens, general manager of the Phillies, was driving in Clearwater, Fla., when the agreement was announced and said lie "almost ran into another car when I heard it on the car radio, I was so excited." The agreement, however, came too late to prevent the. cancellation of some early exhibition games. Native Sons manage split The Lethbridge Native Sons picked up only two out of a possible four points as they split a paii' of Central Alberta Hockey League games at home over the weekend. Saturday night the Sons dropped a hard-fought 7-5 decision to the Taber Palace Pats while Sunday they came back and stopped the Brooks Tubers 64. In Saturday's encounter, Taber took a 1-0 first period margin but watched the Sons battle back with four consecutive markers in the second period. The Pats didn't stand still in the second frame though as they pumped in three quick goals before the period ended and managed to carry a 4-4 tie into the dressing room. U of A judo team wins eighth title University of Alberta judo-kans picked up their eighth consecutive Canada West University men's team judo championship title Saturday night.

In individual championships, Guy Sunada of the U of A bested Neil Nakamoto of UBC to win the featherweight title while Greg Senda of the host U of L defeated Frank Vangin-hoven of the U of A in the lightweight class.

Joe Laing of UBC rounded out the winners taking home the heavyweight title by defeating George Murphy of the U of A team. The two clubs exchanged goals early in the final period but the Pats finally went ahead to stay on a power-play goal by Ian Cole at the 8:10 mark. Cole's teammate Neil Goruk ltd Taber's attack with three goals while Ted Wiest chipped in two and Rod Flexhaug a single.
