The WCHL players drafted were identified as Clark Gillies of Regina Pats and Mike Rogers of Calgary Centennials, by Edmonton; Ron Greschner of New Westminster Bruins and Ron Chipperfield of Brandon Wheat Kings, by Vancouver Blazers; Greg Joly of Regina Pats, by Phoenix; Dave Williams of Swift Current Broncos, by Cincinnati; captain Dave Inkpen. of Edmonton Oil Kings, Terry Ruskowski of Swift Current, Bob Bourne of Saskatoon Blades, Cam Connor of Flin Flon Bombers, Danny Gare and Jerry Holland of Calgary, and John Paddock of Brandon.

"I haven't heard a thing." Inkpen said he'd caught wind of something about a draft but would not say if he had been personally contacted about it. Greschner, in a telephone interview, said "I heard it was going to be held Monday or sometime this week but I hadn't heard anything about what happened." Chipperfield said he'd heard rumors.

Mets9 coach named best at his position in Alberta Junior League Longhorns win, Maxwell gets early shower Coach Stan Maxwell finally got to tell referee Gerry Gray what he thought of him Tuesday night, and none of it was good. Maxwell has had a running feud with Gray for the better part of the Alberta Junior Hockey League season. But up untii Tuesday night Maxwell was always around at the end of the game to get in the final word. Not, however, last night. Maxwell got the gate at the end of the second period. All was not lost, however, as Maxwell's Longhorns dumped Drumheller Falcons 5-2 in a game that saw two minor skirmishes. Gary Meers, Darcy O'Sullivan, Ken Klinkhammer, Bernie Syrenne and Brad Cox scored for the Longhorns while Greg Jabusch and Ken Morgan replied for Drumheller. Most of the trouble in Tuesday's game surrounded Dennis Bechtold of the Falcons. In a game in Drumheller a few weeks back, Bechtold scratched up the face of Klinkhammer pretty good after jumping the Lethbridge player from behind. Until last night Bechtold rode the bench on trips to Lethbridge. He didn't Tuesday and that's where the trouble started and stopped. Longhorns served four minors and a like number of majors and game misconducts. Drumheller, on the other hand, served 18 penalties including five majors and four game misconducts. Longhorns outshot the Falcons 43-28 while building up period leads of 2-1 and 3-2. Red Deer Rustlers turned in a high powered performance Tuesday night as they smashed Calgary Canucks 10-4 to clinch first place in the league. Barry Lassitter led the Red Deer attack with three goals while Iry Bowles and Brian Sutler fired two each. Kelly Bunn, Pete Skrabyk and Terry Wittchen hit for one each. Tops for Calgary was Don Cairns, who potted two goals. Jerry Bancks and Dean Magee shared the others. Red Deer broke open the game with five unanswered goals in the third period. Calgary led 3-2 in first period and Red Deer produced a 5-4 edge by the end of the second. Red Deer served five of eight minor penalties. Calgary served two of three majors and the only misconduct in the game. Red Deer outshot Calgary 10-33. Meanwhile, Longhorns announced that they will finish off the home part of their schedule Sunday after- noon at Henderson Ice Centre. Longhorns were to play Calgary Canucks Saturday night. However, with the Ed Bruchet night proceedings set for the same evening local officials decided to move the game to Sunday rather than conflict with the dinner. Game time Sunday is set for two o'clock. Meanwhile Doug Messier, in his first season with Edmonton Mets, has been named the AJHC's coach of the year. The league announced today that Messier had 59 points in voting by coaches, managers and reporters in the six cities with AJHL teams. Cec Swanson of Red Deer Rustlers was second with 44 points. Five points were awarded for a first-place vote and three for second place. The Mets, with only four holdovers from last year and 13 midget-aged players, have clinched a playoff berth Before taking over the coaching duties, Messier played with Portland of the Western Hockey League and coached in minor and senior hockey. Ralph Burgess of Calgary Canucks, last year's top coach, was third with 14 points, followed hy Stan Maxwell of Lethbridge Longhorns and John Chapman of the Pass Red Devils. Cox notches marker Brad Cox, not in the picture, scores for the Lethbridge Long- horns Tuesday night as they dumped Drumheller Falcons 5-2 in Alberta Junior Hockey League action. The game saw two separate altercations take place, neither were of the serious nature however. Open ears could stop NFL strike MIAMI (AP) The big stumbling block in forthcoming contract negotiations between the National Football League club owners and the players' association may be the simple refusal by each side to listen to what the other has to say. John Thompson, executive director of the NFL management council, said Tuesday he is confident that a players' strike can be averted, but cautioned that "for reasons of strategy" one side or the other may go into next month's bargaining with a hard-nosed attitude. One major issue will be the continued, and expanded, use of artificial playing surfaces. An independent committee on artificial turf and player safety, commissioned by the NFL management council and rejected at the outset by the players' association, presented its findings at a news conference. John Brodie, a committee member who retired at the 'end of the 1973 season as quarterback of San Francisco '49ers, said he believed that the committee's recommendations, including the standardization of artificial playing surfaces, would be less than enthusiasti- cally received by the players' association, and that such an attitude could extend to the bargaining table. "The reluctance to listen for relucance sake might be where it is at the said Brodie. "I just hope this really isn't the case." Dr. Bill McColl, an offensive end with Chicago Bears in the 1950s and now an orthopedic surgeon, headed the commi'tee, which included Dr. James Garrick, a consultant to the players' association. STOTTLEMYRE INKS FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla (AP) Mel Stottlemyre moved closer to becoming the first pitcher in New York Yankee history Tuesday when he signed a contract for the 1974 season. Stottlemyre agreed to terms for a reported after a hour meeting with club president Gabe Paul.
