Norris also Gilbert may be trying too hard By LLOYD YAMAGISH1 Herald Sports Writer The Catholic Central Cougars couldn't come much closer to a victory as they dropped a 43-42 decision to the LCI Rams in Southern Alberta "A" Boys Basketball action last evening. Haywood blamed no matter what By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Spencer Haywood was 3,000 miles away and hardly responsible for Buffalo Braves' foldup against Seattle Supersonics Friday night, but the Braves are protesting in his name anyway. And why not? Everybody else who plays Seattle in the National Basketball Association is doing it. Buffalo suffered through a 32-point second half and dropped a 110-102 decision to the Super-Sonics Friday night. Then they protested because Haywood's name was on the Sonics' active roster. The American Basketball Association refugee was busy with a court appearance in Los Angeles and did not come East with the Sonics. But the Braves were the sixth straight team to protest a game against Seattle since the Sonics signed Haywood. In other NBA games Friday night, Los Angeles Lakers tagged Philadelphia '76ers 123-117, Portland Trail Blazers downed Chicago Bulls 113-105, Portland Pistons took Cincinnati Royals 115-104, San Francisco Wairiors nipped San Diego Rockets 120-117, Baltimore Bullets topped Atlanta Hawks 115-104 and Boston Celtics defeated Phoenix Suns 122-114. LEAD LOS ANGELES Keith Erickson poured in 12 points in the final period and Wilt Chamberlain's defence led Los Angeles to its victory over Philadelphia. Portland used a three-guard offence in the final quarter to wear down Chicago and beat the Bulls. Jim Barnett led the last-period surge with 11 of his 25 points. Detroit's Dave Bing poured in 31 points to lead the Pistons past Cincinnati. Boston used 39 points by John Havlicek and 27 from Jo Jo White to whip Phoenix. Baltimore won its seventh straight game, getting 31 points and 24 rebounds from Gus Johnson to rip Atlanta.

Rodgers named coach at UCLA LOS ANGELES (AP) -Franklin Pepper Rodgers, head coach at Kansas for four sea sons was appointed head football coach at UCLA, athletic director J. D. Morgan announced today. Rodgers, 39, a former assistant at UCLA, succeeds Tommy Prothro who last Saturday became coach of Los Angela, Rams of the National Football League. The Rams maintained a slim four point edge going into the final half of play but watched it vanish as the Cougars came on strong in the third quarter. By the 6:50 mark of the final quarter the Cougars built up a solid 10 point lead and looked as if a victory was in store. But Hugh Tambylin coach of the Rams, still tasted a Ram victory and ordered his boys to use the full-court press. His plan worked perfectly as the Cougars gave up the ball at least six times. With only 58 seconds remaining in the action packed contest Rob Mossey flipped in two free throws to lift his team to one point lead. The Cougars gained possession of the ball but couldn't find an opening. As time wore down I 53. Cougar forward was fouled but failed to sink the one-point needed. The Rams controlled the ball until four seconds remained and at this time the clock stopped due to a Cougar foul. The shot was missed but time had run out for the Cougars. In team shooting percentages the Rams shot only 27 per cent compared to 45 per cent for the Cougars but the big difference lay in the turnovers. LCI only gave up the ball 11 times while the Cougars mis-cued on 21 occasions. Mossey was the big gun for the Rams netting 11 points while Bruce Thomson and Bob Baird followed with nine and eight respectively. For the Cougars Lyle Gallant gave a strong individual performance hitting for 21 points while Randy Royer sunk 11 and Cal Poirier 10. In "B" Boys action the LCI Colts came up with a strong game and dumped the CCHS Flyers 52-32. At half time the Colts held a 26-20 margin but ran away with the game in the third quarter. Dwayne Kirchner rammed in 15 points for the Colts while Tim Jest chipped in with 10. For the Flyers Terry Kaupp managed 11 and Ken Keenan eight. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Is Rod Gilbert trying too hard? The Montreal  bom right winger for New York Rangers ascended to the National Hockey League in 1961 ticketed for superstar status. A diligent worker, showing streaks of greatness, he has yet to attain the all-star role expected when he jumped into the big time directly from junior hockey with Guelph. With the exception of the 1965-66 season when he missed most of the schedule after undergoing a spinal fusion, the 29-year-old bachelor has been a consistent 20-goal scorer, still searching for his first 30-goal season. But last year was one of frustration. He tailed off to 16 goals after a 28-goal year, his point production dropped from 77 to WRESTLING EXHIBITION AUDITORIUM MONDAY, JAN. 11 - 8.30 p.m. NO DISQUALIFICATIONS!

JUVENILE HOCKEY LETHBRIDGE ARENA Smith leads by two LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bob Smith, a free-swinging, quick-quipping bachelor, has his game in gear, his mouth clamped shut and a new attitude that he isn't talking about. "I'm not going to talk much yet," Smith said after taking a two-stroke lead Friday after two rounds of the $110,000 Glen Campbell-Los Angeles open golf tournament. Smith, 28, from Sacramento, Calif., has yet to win in more than three years on the pro tour. He hasn't finished higher than fifth. "I got in there for an interview and talked and talked and talked," he said. "The press secretary told me later I'd better save something in case I won. 'I never got back in the interview room (finished ninth)." Smith, one of three tied tor the top spot going into the second round, took a scrambling 69 for 135-seven under par on the Rancho Park course-in the morning chill- That left him two strokes in front of Art Wall, Ray Floyd, Bob Lunn, Don January and Phil Rodgers, tied at 137. Rodgers and Wall had 67s, January a 68 and Lunn and Floyd 69s. Masters champion Billy Casper and Tom Shaw, tied with Smith going into the second round, slipped to 72s for 138 and were tied at that figure with U.S. Open champion Tony Jack-lin, who had a 69. Arnold Palmer had an erratic 71 for 142 and was well back in the pack. While observers feel his game is showing improvement this year, by the half-way mark of the schedule his over-all point picture is about level with last season. The Rangers are pushing Boston Bruins for top spot in the NHL's Bast Division. HE'S 31ST With 11 goals and 17. assists, he's 31st in the NHL scoring race and trails team-mates Jean Ratelle, Walt Tkaczuk and Dave Baton. Of his 1969-70 performance, Gilbert said earlier this year: "There were a few factors involved. Maybe I wasn't as conscientious about offence after awhile so I concentrated on my defensive play. That's important up here, too." Some skeptics feel Gilbert! leaves his best shots on the practice ice. "I've always worked bard. . . . You nave to work hard all the time. That is what this game is all about." The five-foot-10, 180-pounder will get an opportunity to put his theories to practice in the second half of the NHL schedule starting tonight when the Rangers visit Bloomington, Minn., and Minnesota North Stars. In other games today, Los Angeles Kings play the Canadiens in an afternoon game at Montreal. At night, Pittsburgh Penguins are at Toronto Maple Leafs, Chicago Black Hawks are host to Boston Brums, Detroit Red Wings entertain Buffalo Sabres, Vancouver Canucks are in St. Louis against the Blues and California Golden Seals play the Flyers at Philadelphia. Six games are on tap Sunday with Philadelphia in Montreal for a matinee performance, Toronto at Detroit, New York at St. Louis, California at Boston, Los Angeles in Buffalo and Minnesota moving over to Chicago. "will take over behind the bench for the next few games while we consider various can* dictates for coach." SURPRISE TO HARKNESS It did come as a bit of a surprise," the 49-year-old Harkness said, adding later, "It's a great break for me, opportunity-wise and financial-wise." The first-year NHL coach, who previously spent 21 years coaching college hockey, said he wanted to emphasize that "I haven't been relieved of my job as coach." "This was made very dear to me by Mr. Norris . . . "If I follow the requirements of Mr. Norris as general manager I don't feel I could also coach and do both jobs right. "I told Mr. Norris if I couldn't do justice to coaching duties I'd rather see someone else with them." It was only Wednesday that Abel, following a meeting with Norris in Chicago, resigned after three decades in the Wings' organization as a player, * coach and general manager. When he made the announcement, Abel fired a number of verbal broadsides at Harkness, saying he could not assess him as a coach "because I don't think he is one." ' BEHIND THE BENCH - Doug Barkley, a former leth-brldge Native Son, will handle the duties of coach for the Detroit Red Wings for the time being it was announced today. Nate Ramsey testifies Norris sides with Bishop DETROIT (AP) - Bruce Norris, the millionaire whose family has owned the Detroit Red Wings hockey club for 38 years, says the organization has been operated negligently for years. "I believe in organization and I don't believe our organization was qualified to do business in the National Hockey League," Norris said in a telephone interview with the Detroit News. Although he did not specifically blame former general manager Sid Abel, the News said Norris hinted it was Abel's fault the team has been playing bad hockey. Abel resigned Wednesday after 30 years with the Wings as player, coach and general manager. "It's been headed this way for several years-we don't have the guys and guns," Norris said. The Wings are in sixth place in the NHL East Division, with a 12-22-4 record. Norris said he hired Jim Bishop as the Wings' executive director to help pump organization into the team. Abel feuded with Bishop, who was instrumental in hiring Ned Harkness as coach this year. PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Nate Ramsey, defensive back for Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League, testified Friday against the man accused of shooting him last month. The defendant, L. Harrison, 35, was held for the grand jury after a hearing before Municipal Court Judge Edward S. Cox. He was charged with assault with intent to kill and other offenses. Bail of $5,000 was continued. Ramsey said the shooting occurred just after he left a bar when someone called: "I want to see ycu." Ramsey said he turned and saw Harrison standing a few feet away. He said Harrison fired twice into the ground and next fired the shot that struck Ramsey in the chest. Harrison, who surrendered to police two days after the shoot* ing, did not testify. | ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES ----------------------" NATIONAL LIAOUI �ait Dlvliien W L T W A Boston ...
