LETHBRIDOE HERAID - Tuesday, January 5, 1971 ANDY CAPP Joe Restic leaves Tiger-Cats for Harvard Replacements plentiful for head coach job Buffalo ivorsl hit Injuries striking clubs By THE CANADIAN PRESS An unusual rash of knee injuries has struck National Hockey League clubs, but the person hurting most, Punch Imlach, remains philosophical. While most clubs bemoaned the loss of one or two players, the Buffalo Sabres' general manager and coach had no fewer than three players out with knee ailments, one with an Minor hockey The Vikings started off the new year on the right foot as they walked over the Bisons 9-1 in Pee Wee action last evening. Jeff Takeyasu was hot for the Vikings as he rammed in three markers while David Stephens and Duane Ptycia followed with two apiece. Kevin Dragland and Gary Calhoun chipped in with one each. For the Bisons Ross Mathe-son managed to sink one to halt a shutout. In Bantam B play Mike Burla blasted in two goals as he paced the Seats to a 5-2 triumphant over the Ramblers. Other Seal's markers came off the sticks of Greg Monte ith, Tony Semian and Tony Meli. David Toth and Dale Slusai replied for the Ramblers. Five players shared in the scoring as the Red Wings skated to a 5-2 victory over the Marlins in Bantam A action last night. Bob Miles, Barry Sedgewick, Cliff Miyashiro, Greg Gibson and Bruce Smith tallied the Wings markers while Rocky Magee and LeRoy Pavan flipped in second period markers for the Marlins. In midget action the Ti-Cats and Comets battled to a 4-4 deadlock. Ron Tom paced the Comets with two goals while singles went to Dale McMann and Don Larson. Allen Kelly, Darrel Nason, Henry S u y k e r and Jack Sleightholm replied for the Ti-Cats.

OUT OF HOSPITAL NEW YORK (AP) - Willis Reed, all-star centre of New York Knicks, was discharged from a hospital Monday and given a clean bill of health. eye injury, and goalie Roger Crozier had just resumed practice after 10 days in hospital with pancreatitis. "When you've this many people in and out of the hospital, you wonder when it's going to end, and where," said Imlach Monday. "The only consolation for me is that maybe we're get-ling all this stuff at once. "In any event, I hope so, and that we'LI be healthy the rest of the season." HAD KNEE TROUBLE Sabres' defencemam Al Hamilton was expected out of hospital today or Wednesday where he was undergoing treatment for a knee infection. Centre Billy In-glis and winger Larry Keen an remained sidelined with knee injuries. Rookie Randy Wyrozub, recovering from a broken collar bone, was struck on the right eye during practice Saturday and extended his absence from the club by another month to six weeks. Philadelphia Flyers lost Gary Dornhoefer for at least three weeks when the winger underwent surgery for a blood clot on the knee, the same right knee that was operated on six weeks before the Flyers opened training camp. Toronto veteran George Armstrong was expected to miss at least four Maple Leaf games while recovering from a knee injured Saturday night in Toronto's 13-0 win over Detroit Red Wings. PULFORD OUT Los Angeles Kings were without top scorer and captain, Bob Vulford, for two to three weeks when the 14-year NHL star pulled knee ligaments in a recent game with St. Louis Blues. And Detroit's No. 1 line of Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio and Frank Mahovlich was hampered by injuries. Howe, recovering from a rib injury that sidelined him for several weeks early in the season, has had recurring bursitis problems in the elbow and wrist while Mahovlich has been playing with an ingrown toenail. Leafs' woes were added to in their game with Detroit when winger Ron Ellis suffered a mild concussion. He's not expected to miss tonight's game with Minnesota North Stars, however, and will probably play with a protective helmet. HAMILTON (CP) - Hamilton Tiger-Cats found themselves without a head coach Monday, but plenty of possible replacements were mentioned for departing Joe Restic. Restic, who still had a year remaining to fulfil his four-year contract with the Eastern Football Conference team, was named head coach of Harvard University at Cambridge, Mass., earlier in the day. By nightfall, a number of former and current Canadian Football League coaches and players were featured prominently among those being mentioned as prospective Ticat leaders. Ralph Sazio, Hamilton's general manager, is still unaware he's without a coach and won't know until he returns to the city Saturday. SAZIO IN EUROPE The Sazio family is vacationing in Europe, and has been since negotiations between Restic and Harvard commenced several days ago. Club president Ross Fischer said the last time Sazio went on a long-overdue vacation in 1967, the then general manager, Jake Gaudaur, was named CFL commissioner. Sazio cut short his three-week vacation to eight days. "Ralph deserves this vacation and we're not going to chance that he'll cut this one short," said Fischer. Sazio and the other CFL general managers will attend a U.S. college coaches' convention in Houston, Texas, next week., Fischer said the Hamilton club can only wish Restic the best in his new venture. He said the 44-year-old Restic, an outstanding player at Villanova before moving into the pro ranks with Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League, had kept the Ticats informed of his negotiations with Harvard. in the guessing game include Bernie Faloney, the former quarterback star with Hamilton, Montreal and Edmonton Eskimos; Jim Champion one-lime head coach with British Columbia Lions, and Ralph Goldston, outstanding EFC player with Hamilton and Montreal and an assistant coach at Montreal before being let go by that organization during the changeover last year. Meanwhile in Buffalo Ray Malavasi, defensive line coach of Buffalo Bills, says he "definitely would be interested" in becoming head coach of Hamil- ton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League, where he once was an assistant. Malavasi commented Monday after the Hamilton post became vacant when Joe Restic resigned to become head coach at Harvard. "I haven't discussed the job with anyone from the Hamilton organization," he said, "but yes, I definitely would be interested. . . . Malavasi was a Tiger-Cats Assistant coach in 1967 and 1968 before joining the National Football League Bills under head coach John Rauch. Red Wings in need of help Flyers willing to talk trade TOO GOOD TO MISS Fischer said Harvard offered Restic a contract "he couldn't turn down." He was believed to be making $20,000 a year with the Tiger-Oats. Restic, who came to Canada in 1962, was an assistant to Jim Trimble and Sazio before taking over as head coach in February, 1968. S'azio's will have the final say about who replaces Restic. Candidates for the job include two of Restic's assistants-Carl Schuette and Al Bruno. However, if neither is successful, it is unlikely they'll be back in Hamilton since the new head coach will probably recruit his own assistants. Both Schuette and Bruno have also been reported considering U.S. offers, and one Hamilton source, who asked not to be identified, said both men could follow Restic to Harvard. WILLIAMS MENTIONED Jerry Williams, the former Calgary Stampeder coach, is reported on the outs with the NFL Eagles and might be available as might Ray Malvasi, a Ticat assistant in 1967-68 who may get the axe at Buffalo where the Bills are in the process of shaking up their NFL club. Bob Ward, who did an excellent job moulding Montreal M ouettes' defensive unit in the 1970 season, has also been mentioned as a candidate. But one barrier might be money. Ward is making more as an assistant with the Als than the Ticats would probably be prepared to offer him as head coach. Others figuring prominently NEW YORK (AP) - Trade rumors are a necessary evil in the life of every professional athlete and there are a flock of them buzzing around the National Hockey League these days. Keith Allen, general manager of Philadelphia Flyers, showed up in New York Monday and the buzz, buzz, buzz started again. The Flyers are in the throes of an 11-game winless streak and are looking for help from some place-any place. "I'm in town for a couple of reasons," said Allen. "One of them is to try and get some of the Rangers' good fortune to rub off on me." Allen had lunch Monday with Emile Francis, general manager-coach of the New York club. Francis could be ready to do business even though the Rangers are near the top of the NHL's East Division. The Rangers expect injured left wing Vic Hadfield back within a week, and his return will put them one over the 20-man limit. ALWAYS A CHANCE "There's always the chance of a deal," said Francis. The Rangers aren't hesitant to trade because their two most-recent deals have paid off handsomely. Centre Pete Stemkowski, acquired from Detroit Red Wings in November, and Ted Irvine, who came from Los Angeles Kings last Febru ary, have played important roles in New York's surge. Alien is looking for scoring help, an old problem for the Philadelphia team. He might be willing to part with either Bernie Parent or Doug Favell, a pair of quality goalies. "Let's put it this way," said Alien. "We haven't placed either goalie on an untouchable list." Ron Caron, assistant general manager of Montreal Cana-diens, also was in New York Labor dumps Expected to define an amateur Club Saints I Think I'll Retire.

Alberta Bui. 327-2985-Ros. 328-2606 THE MONARCH LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY Floyd Patterson to meet Oscar NEW YORK (AP) - Floyd Patterson, two-time former world heavyweight champion, ond Argentina's Oscar Bonav-ena will meet in a scheduled 10-round bout at Madison Sauare Garden Feb. 12, it was announced Monday. The bout originally had been scheduled for Jan. 22 but was postponed at Bonavena's request. Harry Markson, director of Madison Square Garden boxing, said each fighter will bo guaranteed $60,000 or 25 per cent of the gate. Patterson, 36 Monday, scored a lOth-round knockout over Charlie (Devil) Green in his last fight, Sept. 15 and is scheduled to meet Levi Forte at Miami Beach, Jan. 15. Bonavena, the South American heavyweight c h a m p ion, turned in an impressive performance against undefeated Muhammed Ali Dec. 7 before being stopped in the 15th round. Both fighters have almost identical records. Patterson has a record of 47 victories, seven losses and one draw, with 36 knockouts. Bonavena, 28, has 46 triumphs, seven losses and one draw, with 32 knockouts. Ticket prices will be scaled from $30 to $5. LONDON (AP) - International Olympic Committee officials get down to some straight talking with heads of various international sports federations today in an effort to find a common definition of an amateur as far as the Olympics are concerned. The five-man committee meet top members of various sports federations to try to save the 1972 Winter Games in Sapporo, Japan, and the Summer Games at Munich, Germany, from embarrassments about the eligibility of certain stars. The meetings in London will last today through Thursday. All will be in private. The international sports federations involved in the London talks are the Amateur Athletic Federation, weight lifting, arch ery, ice hockey, boxing, judo, swimming, yachting and skiing. Meetings with other federations will be held at Paris Jan. 11-12 and Lausanne Jan. 13-15 BRUNDAGE SUSPICIOUS Avery Brundage, president of the IOC, has said some top skiers should be barred from the Sapporo Games for accepting payments. Marc Hodler, preident of the International Ski Federation, has his own ideas about what is an amateur and what a professional. At the Mexico City Games in 1968 there were suggestions that some athletes had accepted money to run in certain shoes. The allegations were never proved. IOC officials have said that the talks in the three cities will bo kept private. The findings will be reported to the executive board in March and then to the full IOC session in September at Luxembourg. The Labor Club started off the second half of the City Recreation Hockey League in fine fashion as they dumped the St. Basil's Saints 8-4 in the first game on tap last evening. Meanwhile Jerry Le Grandeur's second goal of the night gave the U of L Chinooks a hard-fought 4-4 tie with the Purity Bottling in the second encounter. In the first contest Labor Club took a 2-1 first period lead but watchedd it slip by as the Saints got the upper hand in the second to overtake them 3-2. It was not until the final period though that things started rolling for the Club. After regaining the lead at the 5:22 mark Labor Club pumped in four more unanswered goals to salt away the victory. Al Rowntree was the big gun for the Club as he hit for three goals while Grant Harrington aided with two. Jim Dundas, Jim Baird and Stan Maxwell rounded out the Club's scoring. For the Saints Jerry Heck, Warren Asplund, Dick Cusson and Garry Canadine replied with singles. Purity Bottling held period scores of 1-0 and 2-0 but couldn't stop the strong third period rushes of the Chinooks. Le Grandeur was the hero as he picked up a pass from Wally Tunow to end the hopes of a Bottler victory. Dennis Allen also shone as he rammed in two markers for the Chinooks. For the Bottlers John Kosh-ney, Dennis Oberg, Wayne Rus-ling and Mel Middleton slapped in a goal each Labor Club by one point. Rowntree has 10 goals and 20 assists. His 20 helpers are tops in the league. Wayne Neilson of the University is the top netminder with 27 goals against in 13 games for a 2.04 average. Barry Willis of M and K and Larry Neilson of the University are the league's bad men with 44 and 40 minutes respectively spent in the penalty box.

Sunday's loss to New York left Montreal 16 points behind the Rangers in third place in the East Division. "We're looking two wayi," said Caron-"up and down." "It appears right now that Boston and New York are sailing along but it's still early to say that they'll be the only two. We hope to put it together and get back into it but we're also concerned with Toronto. They've won 10 of 11 and they're really coming on now." The Red Wings absorbed a 13-0 defeat at Toronto Saturday night and have had defensive problems. Goalie Roy Edwards, out for one month with a fractured skull, returned Sunday and turned in a 3-2 victory over California Golden Seals. But the Wings lack a suitable backup goalie and are shopping. Rumors of a Toronto Mapl� Leaf-Boston trade have been circulating for weeks but both clubs are going well right now and might be content to stand still. The one name repeated in those talks is centre Mike Wal-i ton, suspended by the Leafs for i a couple of weeks last month 1 and reported to be unhappy in Toronto. NHL rules allow trades until the last month of the season, giving the clubs two more months to wheel and perhaps deal. "There's plenty of time," said Francis, smiling, "plenty of time."

Invention helps lessen impact MONTREAL (CP) - A recently invented bubble machine wliich lessens the impact of a solid body striking a water surface promises to help develop world-class diving. The apparatus uses compressed air below the surface of a pool to create a cushion of bubbles which lessens the impact of an imperfect dive. It is expected to reduce by three years the amount of time required to develop a good diver. "It takes the fright out of diving and allows the divers to concentrate entirely on form," said Martin Flewwell-ing, who with Michael Harvey developed the apparatus at a Dointar Ltd. research centre. "It's important to remember that a diver has no pro-ective equipment: The initial impact of a poor entry can cause serious injury," he said. "The cushion of foam created by Uic bubble machine all but eliminates the fear of injury particularly in very young divers. "It takes about eight years to develop a good diver. "This apparatus should reduce it to five." Quebec Springfield Providence Montreal W L T F A . 16 14 5 115 112 .
