Herald Sports l.ETHBRIDQE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD Lowsr Uvsl 7lh Strort Shopptat Mall Alosrts HOME AND OFFICE SAFES Horton was loved by many TORONTO (CP) Hundreds of hockey fans broke down and cried Monday at the funeral of defenceman Tim Horton of Buffalo Sabres, who was killed in a car crash Thursday near St. Catharines, Ont. People began filing into the church more than 90 minutes before the start of the service for the former National Hockey League all-star. The 400 seats in the church were filled as were two side aisles and the choir loft. An- other 200 chairs were set up in the basement to accommodate the overflow crowd. It was a short, simple serv- ice, with a eulogy delivered by Rev. Gordon Riggs, a friend of the family. The United Church minister announced there will be a Tim Horton memorial hockey camp for underprivileged children set up on 150 acres of land owned by Horton and his wife near Orangeville, Ont., about 30 miles northwest of here. He said the camp would start this summer. No further details were announced. Professional hockey was well represented. Among those present were: NHL President Clarence Campbell and his executive assistant, Brian O'Neill; Ian (Scotty) Morrison, NHL ref- eree-in-chief; Gus Bodnar, a former team-mate of Horton when he played with Toronto Maple Leafs and who now manages Oshawa Generals of the Ontario Hockey Association Major Junior A series; Red Berenson, captain of Detroit Red Wings; Ted O'Connor, head scout for Minnesota North Stars; Bob Goldham, former defenceman with Toronto, Detroit and Chicago Black Hawks. Friends honor Tim Horton Former Toronto Maple Leafs (left to Billy Harris, Allan Stanley, Bobby Baun and Detroit Red Wings' Brian Watson (far right) along with Buffalo Sabres' general manager Punch Imlach (far left) were among those who honored Buffalo's Tim Horton Monday afternoon at his burial m Toronto. More than people, former teammates and fans, attended the funeral service for one of hockey's most popular players. Horton was killed last Thursday in a single-car accident. Bruehet night growing, Saturday event all set Bottlers advance Organizers of the "Ed Bruehet Appreciation Night" almost pulled off a major coup. However, time and previous commitments prevents it. Until early this morning there was a possibility that Jim Coleman, dean of Canadian sports writers, would be a head table guest at Saturday's affair. Coleman, by telephone from Toronto Monday night informed the committee he had to be in Chicago Sunday morning. He will, however, devote a column this week to Bruehet. While the locals missed out on Coleman a number of other former players and friends of Bruehet have confirmed their appearances at the Saturday dinner and dance. Dr. J. Summers, president of the Albuquerque Six Guns and Marvin Seibel, general manager of the team, will be on hand. Bruehet is the manager of the Albuquerque Convention Centre where the Six Guns play their home games. Also planning to be at the dinner are four players from the Native Sons of the late 40's. Bill Ramsden, Tom Wood, Larry Ruptash and Slim Lavalle. Wood was with the club for the 1945-46 season, then took over as coach for the 1948-49 campaign. He was with the Lethbridge Maple Leafs when they won the 1951 world championship. Ramsden set a brilliant scoring record the season of 1947-48. his second with the club Ramsden, on a line with Eddie Dorohoy and Freddie Brown scored 104 goals. Lavalle was the captain as well as the anchor man on defence for the club while Ruptash played right wing. Also planning to attend will be four members of the Native Sons when the club was started again in the late 50's. Ray Crellan, Harrison Gray and Bruce Annabelle will join Dick Cusson at the diner. At present, and now with Jim Coleman unable to attend, it would seem the head table is set with Henry Viney the master of ceremonies. Joining him will be Vic Stasiuk, Scotty Munro, Joe Fisher, Frank Boucher and Monsignor Athol Murray and of course, the reason for it all Ed Bruehet. Tickets, at apiece, are still available. Purity Bottling advanced in the City Recreation Hockey League playoff finals by whipping the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks 7-1 Monday night.

Andrews will sue for BOSTON (AP) The Boston Herald-American says that veteran infielder Mike Andrews plans to sue Oakland owner Charlie Finley for million and the Athletics team physician, Dr. Charles Hudson, for half that amount for allegedly damaging Andrews' ability to earn a livelihood. The story was reported by baseball writer Bill Listen from the Boston Red Sox' training camp on a "learned exclusively basis" in Monday's editions. Andrews, who lives in West Peabody, Mass.. could not be reached for comment. Andrews 30, who helped the Red Sox to the American League pennant as a rookie in 1967, committed two errors as a substitute second baseman for the Athletics in an extra- inning loss to New York Mets in the second game of the World Series last fall. Finley and the Athletics attempted to put Andrews on the disabled list because of an alleged shoulder injury after the game, but were denied by baseball commissioner Bowie Kuhn for conduct detrimental to baseball. The Herald American said that Andrews has "tried vainly during the off-season to get a job with a major league club. "As a the story says, "it's been learned that Andrews has retained a Boston law firm which will handle his damage suits against the controversial Finley and also against Dr. Hudson." Andrews allegedly was examined at the insistence of Finley by Hudson after the second game errors in the World Series. Finley then tried to have Andrews placed on the disabled list, the second baseman returned home and then was ordered re-instated by Kuhn. Andrews says he has been examined by two Boston orthopedic specialists and has been given a clean bill of health.

(AP) It may look silly for a year football player to be carrying around a picket sign but it's quite probable this year, says O. J. Simpson, and the public will be all for it. think there's a good chance of a strike in the Na- tional Football the ball-carrying star of the Buffalo Bills said Monday. "The players are ready for some changes." Simpson, a contender in the Superstar finals here, said the greatest objections are to the so-called Rozelle rule requiring compensation for the victimized club when an athlete plays out his option and signs with another team. "The players should be given greater he added "I think we may be nearing a point that a player may be completely freed at the end of his contract, with no option clauses." Former Heisman Trophy winner from Southern California who set a season rushing record last year with yards, said he is not a member of the NFL Players Association but is in full agreement with the group's aims. "The reason I haven't joined is a personal matter which I wouldn't like to he said.

"In fact, if I beard of a gay who had been offered or more to jump, I'd say, 'Go to it.'" Success of the WFL could negate the necessity of a binding arbitration deal in contract disputes, such as major league baseball has, Simpson suggested. The rushing star spiked the theory that the public might resent a players' strike. "I don't think so at he insisted. "Our life styles have changed and people have a more realistic concept of what and who we are. If athletes can be asked not to cross a picket line when a worker or some union strikes, why shouldn't the athletes be allowed to enjoy the same He also denied that the public is getting disenchanted with escalating sports salaries.
