Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE IETHS.KIDGI HHAID Tu.ldoy, Jonuory 11, 197J Staubach eager for win, must prove he's a passer QUIET INTERVIEW Dallas Cowboys star running back Dunne week for missing practice, refused to talk or pose for pictures during the Thomas has nothing to say as he is surrounded by reporters during press one-hour session for Ihe press, day for the Cowboy! In New Orleans Monday. Thomas, who was fined last Ken Dryden among those leaving NHL? WHA at it again, sign three they say By THE CANADIAN PRESS The fledgling World Hockey Association, set to begui opera- lions in October, kept its record intact Monday when it announc- ed signings of three National Hockey League players were denied. The announcement, by the St. Paul Pioneer, did not attribute the statement to anyone and early today the Minnesota news- paper refused to disclose the source of its information. The playere allegedly signed by the WHA goaltender Ken Dryden of Mont- real Canadiens, Phil Roberto of St. Louis Blues and Stan Gil- bertson of California Golden the reports. Dennis Murphy, the WHA's executive vice-president, de- clined comment "on the ru- mors" while admitting the league had talked to many NHL players. "At the appropriate time we will make our announcements hi the proper manner and fash- ion." NAME OFFICIAL M u r p h y's comments came from the league's public rela- tions office which Monday night took steps to add more credence to its reports by naming Lee Meade it's director of public re- lations and statistician. The 43-year-old former sports American Basketball Associa- tion, now lives in Minnetonka, a suburb of the Minneapolis-Si. Paul area from where most of the WHA reports have surfaced in recent weeks. Several weeks ago, the Minne- apolis cross-town rival of the four Minnesota North Stars were in- terested in joining the new Winger Bill Goldsworthy was the only willing member Of the quartet to discuss the matter at that time, saying he had been approached by "a representa- tive of the whole league, not an individual club." The other three members of the group, goaltender Cesare M a n 1 a g o, dofenccman Barry Glbbs and centre Judge Druuin, were reluctant to comment on the disposition of their contacts. Of the many reported en- croachments on NHL player personnel reported in recent months, the WHA's biggest voice of recognition has been Derek Sanderson. The Boston Bruta centre said early in December he had been talking with Miami's Screaming Eagles and someone with that club had offered "a lot more than" for a two-year contract. Sanderson's agent, Bob Woolf, later claimed his client's com- ments blew the actual facts out of proportion but agreed a Miami spokesman had been in touch with him about player's status "but no offers were made agreements entered Earlier a reported million multi-year offer to Chicago's Bobby Hull was denied by the Black Hawk star and also by and no into." Ranger shir leads scorers Ratelle replaces Bruins MONTREAL (CP) The Smooth playmaking and scoring ability of centre Jean Hatelle o[ New York Rangers have placed him in a rather rare category. Ratelle became only the third non-member of Boston Bruins to collect award money from the National Hockey League during the last 3% seasons for perform- ance in the individual scoring race. The New York centre, with a five-point spree against Los An- geles Kings Sunday, was the leading scorer at the mid-way mark of the 78-game schedule with 71 points, one more than defending champion Phil Espos- ito of Boston and 11 more than team-mate Vic Hadfield and the Bruins' Bobby Orr. Thus, for the second time in his career, Ratelle collects for leading the scoring in half a season. He was second-half leader in 1967-68. Esposito, who has earned in award money in 4'A seasons, won the S250 prize as runner-up to Ratelle. HAWK GOALIES TOPS Defensively, goaltenders Gary Smith and Tony Esposito of Chi- cago Black Hawks share as first-half leaders in the Vezina Trophy race. Smith leads the league in shutouts with four. Their combined goals-against average of 1.77 is the lowest at mid season. Since Esposito and Orr became a scoring power seasons ago, Boston players have collected Terrif 4B' wins meets Davis Wayne Terrif of Lclhbridge Ihe long climb tjiat ho hopes will earn him a berth in the southern Alberta curling finals in Red Deer Feb. 3-5. Terrif and his mates won the B section of the District 2 play- downs at the Lethbridge Curling Club Monday evening by downing Malcolm MacDonald 8-7. The B champ now meets A winner Lyle Davis in the A-B final Wednesday evening. Terrif has the harder task of the two Lethbridge curlers. In order for him to advance to Red Deer he must defeat Davis twice as the Davis four- some went unbeaten in the weekend play. The Davis Terrif match is set for Wednesday at 4 p.m. with a second game, if neces- sary, at nine. In Monday's game with Mac- Donald, Terrif was forced to make a last rock draw shot for the victory.

SIGNINGS FEW The WHA, while stressing player talks, has actually only got around so far to signing front-office personnel from a minor-league level. The biggest name to date claimed by the WHA was the NHL official, as referee-ln-chief several years in retire- ment. Other names at the executive level include Lester nephew of St. Louis vice-presi- dent Lynn Patrick, as general manager of the Screaming Ea- gles; Glen Sonmor as manager- coach of the St. Paul franchise; Bill Dineen in the same position at Dayton, Ohio; and Annis Slu- kus as general manager at Win- nipeg. Terry Slater is expected to be signed by the Los Angeles fran- chise within the next few days, leaving behind relative security of coach-general manager ol DCS Moines Oak Leafs in Ihe International League. as by the tag that has been plastered on him as "the scram- bling quarterback."
