(19) FIRES IT HOME FOR THE SONS Bruins, Kings battle it out at coast Chuck Lefley good news for Blues The Canadian Press Chuck Lefley may be just what the doctor ordered to end St. Louis' case of the Blues. The 24-year-old centre, ob- tained Nov. 28 from Montreal Canadiens in exchange for de- fenceman Don Awrey, ac- counted for all St. Louis scor- ing Thursday night as the Blues edged Kansas City Scouts 2-1 in National Hockey League play. In other games, the Cana- diens and Atlanta F'lames played to a 1-1 tie, Pittsburgh Penguins whipped Minnesota North Stars 6-3, New York Islanders downed Washington Capitals 5-2 and Boston Bruins fought their way to a 5-2 deci- sion over Los Angeles Kings. Lefley had only one goal and two assists in 17 games for Montreal prior to the trade. In an identical number of games since the shift of venue, the Winnipeg native has fired 10 goals as the Blues have erased a five-point deficit and now are tied for second spot in the Smythe Division with Chicago Black Hawks, each with 38 points. Since the deal, the Blues have Won 10, lost five and tied two. while the Black Hawks have skidded to an 8-8-1 record during the same period. Both clubs trail Vancouver Canucks by 11 points. The Scouts are 35 -points off the pace. BOSTON 5, LOS ANGELES 2 First Period: 1. Boston. Vadnais 7. Penalties Sims Komakoski Harper. O'Reilly Second Period: 2. Boston. Esposito 36 (Hodge.

The tie extended Montreal's unbeaten string to 15 games and moved the club one-point ahead of Los Angeles atop the Norris Division. The Flames have not lost in their last six games.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Will Jim (Catfish) Hunter's record million contract with New York Yankees of the American League provide the jumping off point for a new wave of salary demands from baseball's top stars? A survey of some of the game's biggest names shows there is considerable difference among major leaguers as to how they will be affected by Hunter's lucrative contract. "It's kind of said Brooks Robinson, veteran third baseman with Baltimore Orioles. "But it won't affect any other negotiations, because this is a freak case. It probably won't push salaries up." First baseman Steve Garvey with Los Angeles Dodgers, the National League's most valuable player last year, agreed the key factor to be considered was that Hunter was a free agent. "I don't think his contract will have much effect on my salary negotiations, because I don't have the op- portunity to offer my services to anybody else but the Garvey said. "I'm sure it will bring the problem of the reserve clause out in the open said Fritz Peterson, the former Yankee pitcher now with Cleveland Indians. "And there may have to be some changes in the next couple of years. I'm sure the owners are not very happy about it." However, from the executive side, president Gabe Paul of the Yankees said the Hunter case could solidify the reserve system. "I think this strengthens the understanding of the reserve clause and what could happen without it." Vida Blue, one of Hunter's former teammates with Oakland A's and himself once a celebrated holdout against A's owner Charles Finley, was among those who speculated that financially, this may be a breakthrough for all players. "Bob Gibson, Steve Carlton and Tom Seaver will set the pace in contract Blue predicted. "Nolan Ryan, Bert Blyleven and myself are in the next class, and will be demanding a much larger slice of the pie." A number of others also predicted a salary spiral. "Hunter's salary should help'everybody in said Yankee third baseman Graig Nettles. "I'm looking forward to it helping me a little bit in my negotiations." A difference of opinion exists as to whether the big contract will put much extra pressure on Hunter. "Everybody's going to expect a million pitcher every time he goes out observed Montreal Ex- pos' pitcher-Dave McNaliy. "He's got to have a bad outing on occasion, and when he does, he's gonna catch it." But Yankee first baseman Ron Blomberg felt there would be no problem. "He's used to pressure. He's been through it races, World Series games, everything. He won't have any trouble." Blomberg also predicted there will be no jealousy problem among Hunter's new teammates. "The name of the game is to win, and he's a winner. If it rubs off and he makes us into winners, nobody will hold any can be sure of that." Lethbridge Firnitura Ltd. Lowtr Llvil 7th 34. Showing Mill Ltttttrldft, AlbMU (403) 326-7411 FILING CABINETS Native Sons coast 12-6 past Brooks Lakeside Spurs Lethbridge Native Son coach Howie Yanosik has a problem, however it is not of any serious nature. Fresh from their exciting triumph in the Alberta Junior B playoffs to decide the provincial representative in the Canada Winter Games, the Native Sons are leaving the rest of the Central Aiberta Junior B League in their wake. Yanosik's problem is getting his club "up" for league games at present. With their sights set on the Canada Winter Games in February, the Sons are having trouble staying in high gear. For instance, Thursday evening the Sons played host to Brooks Lakeside Spurs in a regular league encounter. The locals dominated the game as they fired 53 shots at Brooks goalie Pat Donovan. They did manage to score 12 times for an easy 12-6 triumph but it is the six goals against that concerns Yanosik. It is not, and Yanosik makes it very clear, a serious problem. The Sons have a very explosive offence but can also tighten the defence to fit the occasion. Thursday's offensive charge was led by Greg Kveder with a trio of markers. The Sons, also got two goals each from Vic Stasiuk Jr. and Reg Osmond. Solo efforts by Gord Gegdes, Duane Howell, Glen and Mark Schreibner and Rod Pocza rounded out the local scoring. Tom Ellis paced Brooks with three goals. Joe Ferreira, Terry Kress and John Prins completed the Red Army gets late goal TORONTO (CP) The Central Red Army team of the Soviet Union needed a third- period power-play goal by Vladimir Petrov to defeat Toronto Marlboros of the On- tario Hockey Association Ma- jor Junior A series 7-6 in an exhibition game before fans Thursday night. It was the fourth consecutive victory for the Soviets on their seven-game tour of Canada. Left-winger Valery Kharmalov and Vladimir Popov sparked the Russians with two goals each, while Boris Mikhailov, Vladimir Vikulov and Petrov scored the others. scoring with one goal apiece. The two clubs split eight minor penalties and two ma- jors while the Sons held period leads of 3-1 and 5-2. Yanosik takes his club on the road this weekend looking to increase their season record of 15-1. Saturday night the Sons are in Rocky Moun- tain House while Sunday they are the guests of Olds. Pronghorns in action The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns will be out to even their Canada West basketball record this weekend when they host the University of Victoria Vikings for a pair of games at the U of L gymnasium. The locals take on the leaque-leading Vikings tonight and Saturday at p.m., and a pair of wins would bring their record up to the .500 mark. Presently, the Prong- horns are 2-4. with three of their losses coming by less than five points. Coach Robin Fry expects to use his full-court press defence throughout the game against the taller Vikings, who boast five players over And he will have two new players dressed, although they may not be able to play until next weekend due to an eligibility technicality. Max Zaugg, who played with the Pronghorns last season, and Ross Blackmer, a Lethbridge Collegiate Institute product, will be in uniform for the locals tonight. Jack Lilja's female Pronghorns will also be out to improve on their 2-4 record. They take on Vic- toria Vikettes in the preliminary contest at p.m. second quarter SuYYOllfc TICKETS AT MOST CREDIT UNIONS THE WESTERN CANADA LOTTERY More lhan S750.000 in total prizes! 1908 lucky people will win!
