IT PAYS TO LEASE! YOU flljfl MM S4y ONE To L. CWiMCt BORIS KOMSMMKOV, L4MMNI0 IMMHTflnOv BENY AUTOMOTIVE ENTERPRISES LTD. 2nd AVE., 9th ST. S.PHONE 328-1101 By THE CANADIAN PRESS What's wrong with the Canadians? That is a cry detractors like- ly will set up in the wake of re- cent sound beatings absorbed by- Montreal, Stanley Cup de- fending champions. The Canadiens, who a few short days ago were lam- basted 9-2 by Toronto Maple Leafs, took an 8-4 thumping Wednesday night from St. Louis Blues, a team that blanked them 5-0 earlier in the season. But despite the setback, the Canadiens still occupy second place in the league's East Division, six points behind the pacesetting Boston Bruins. Toronto Maple Leafs defeated Detroit Red Wings 4- 3 and moved into a two-way tie with idle New York Rangers for third place, three points behind Montreal.

Jacques Lemaire, who scored one Montreal goal, was injured in the second period and did not see any ac- tion for the remainder of the game. The victory jumped the Blues into third place in the West, one point ahead of the Flames, who had the night off. Chicago 5 NY Islanders 1 Jim Pappin scored his 10th and llth goals as Chicago trimmed the Islanders. "I haven't been scoring too much so far this season, but I expect I'll be doing better from now how it's been for the last few the NHL veteran said after the victory. "If he can just keep popping the goals for the rest of the season we'll be in fine said Chicago coach Billy Reay, as the Hawks settled solidly into second place, one point behind leading Philadelphia Flyers in the West. Tony Esposito lost his bid for a shutout midway through the third period when Garry Howatt drove the puck over his shoulder. Toronto 4 Detroit 3 Former Red Wing Tim Ec- clestone, acquired in a trade last November, came back to haunt his old team-mates by scoring two goals against rookie Doug Grant, after the Leafs had surrendered a 3-0 lead to Detroit. Former Swedish national Inge Hammarstrom deflected Ian TurnbuH's shot from the point into the net for the winn- ing goal with less than five minutes of regulation time remaining. 'Talking doesn't seem to do any Detroit coach Alex Delvecchio said Wednesday as he threatened to break up his forward lines. "I've been going with the same lines since I became coach, and things aren't going as good as I'd like them to. We're still giving up too many goals." Minnesota 8 Pittsburgh 4 Andy Brown was the victim of seven of the eight North Star goals, each scored by a different player, before retir- ing at of the third period. He was succeeded in the Pitt- sburgh net by Jim Rutherford who gave up the final North Star goal to Fred Stanfield. A three-goal Minnesota flurry in two minutes and 19 seconds of the second period, capped by defenceman Gary Bergman's first goal of the season, put North Stars ahead 5-3. Their victory extended Penguins' winless streak to seven games. North Stars' Danny Grant played in his 440th consecutive game, second longest string by an active NHL player.

Mahovlich 19'21 NEW ORLEANS (AP) Two of the most prominent and successful football coaches in the United States, Ara Parseghian of Notre Dame and Bear Bryant of 'Alabama, continue to tutor college kids for modest all the gold of the pros apparently can't lure them away. "I like the environment of campus life and I like to deal with the younger age Parseghian said after leading the Fighting Irish to a 24-23 victory over Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. "Everyone knows I have had many offers to coach the pros. I have so far resisted. I can't say positively that some day I might not make a change, but right now I am perfectly happy where I am." Bryant has been besieged with bids from the pros down through the years. "I don't intend ever to coach in the pro said the 60- year-old who produced winn- ing teams at Maryland, Ken- tucky and Texas A and M before he turned the fortunes around at his alma mater. "I have no distaste for the pro game. It's just that I am more comfortable and happier in the role of developing youngsters than I would be inheriting a ready-made team." Normally, two baits lure coaches from college money .and challenge. Parseghian and Bryant are not susceptible to either attraction. Although not high salaried, both are financially secure. Both have proved their worth as coaches. Bryant has the best record of all active college coaches, with a record of 231 victories in his 29 year average of eight victories a season. Only Amos Alonzo Stagg, who coached 57 years, and Glenn (Pop) Warner, who coached 44, lead him in total victories. Stagg had 314, Warner 313. Although only 50, Parseghian is establishing himself as one of the coaching geniuses of the age. He has 85 victories, 15 defeats and four ties in his 10 years at Notre Dame. Although Bryant works for only a year in his dual role as coach and athletic director, he has commercial enterprises which have made him a millionaire. He recently donated to the univer- sity. Parseghian's salary is 000 a year but he has a contract with an automobile company, makes commer- cials and has a weekly televi- sion show in season. LEAVES QUIETLY PITTSBURGH (AP) Bob Fry has resigned unexpected- ly as offensive line coach of Pittsburgh Steelers, a spokesman for the National Football League club said Wednesday.
