Albma Mmm (4«) o FILINO CABINETS if ¿ % Pat SullivanSabreê too ñharpfor stumbling Rangers Popien gets walking papers after setback Well, almost two weeks and 14 pounds later, here 1 am back at my mechanical keyboard. Heavenly bliss would be the best way to describe things around our house the past two weeks, Besides having the flu — which accounts for the loss of 14 pounds, a mouth infection kept me from expressing myself verbally.    . 1 had a lot of time to think about the upcoming Super Bowl and from where I sit it could be one of the better games in the eight-year history of the annual American Classic. I don’t foresee a high - scoring game, the Miami Dolphins and Minnesota Vikings do not play that type of game. However, if either Miami or Minnesota were to win, say 2417 or 24-21, it would be high-scoring enough to provide the action that has been lacking in the Super Bowl. ♦ * • Besides the fact I am a Baltimore Colt fan. I thought the Colt-Dallas Cowboy game three years ago provided fans with the only real excitement a Super Bowl has bad to offer. And the fact that a last second field goal gave the Colts victory hardly brightened the dull, lacklustre performance that preceded it. No, the Super Bowl has not really set anyone on their ears with excitement or well-played football. This time around could be different. In the Vikings and the Dolphins you find two well polished, extremely well disciplined teams. Both, despite their offensive records this past year, are capable of the explosive games that make football the game it is. * * * ■ I was greatly surprised to find that the Vikings ranked 23rd in defence against the run. They showed little sign of it in stopping Dallas' running game, I realize Calvin Hill was missing, but just the same the Viking front four looked powerful in the National Conference final. If the Vikings show to their 23rd place ranking Sunday the show could be over almost as soon as the Star Spangled Banner is sung. Miami has a powerful running attack in Larry C^onka, Mercury Morris and Jim Kiick. A mediocre defence simply can’t, stand up to it and if the Vikings don’t get a super effort from their Purple People Eaters a lot of Minnesota money will be lost. - • « * On the other hand, Miami ranks third in stopping the running game and while Minnesota doesn’t have the best in the league Chuck Foreman and Oscar Reed are better than average on the ground. But I can’t see the game decided by a running attack, not when you consider the quarterbacks. I have always liked Griese (Bob of the Dolphins) but have had more than second thoughts about Fran Tarkenton of the Vikings. Griese gets the job done with a masterful selection of plays. He utilizes all of his offensive power to the utmost. Griese is cool and can be counted on to make the least mistakes of any quarterback in the National Football League, bar none. Tarkenton, up until the final against Dallas, had done very nttle to impress me. i’m not saying that impressing me is the name of the game. But until he called a near-perfect afternoon of football against the Cowboys I gave the Vikings little chance. Too many times, both with the Vikings and with the New York Giants, I had seen Tarkenton dump the ball too soon or take a dive short of a first down. In my books he didn't have the intestinal fortitude it took to be a winner in the NFL. I realize one game a hero doesn’t make but my respect grew a great deal for Tarkenton after that Dallas game. He has never been this close to an NFL title in all of his years in the NFL and Tarkenton can smell it. If wanting a championship could be the means of gaining one, the Vikings would be a sure bet. I wouldn’t say the Dolphins want it any less. But for many of the Vikings this is it. There may not be another try at a Super Bowl for Tarkenton, Carl Eller, Jim Marshall and so on. Super Bowls, however, are not won on nostalgia or sentiment, they have to be earned. The Dolphins received a blow, possibly, today with the announcement that their brilliant wide receiver, Paul Warfield has a pulled hamstring and may not play Sunday. If Warfield is out it could hurt, but not all that much. I still look for a Miami victory in a better than average contest Sunday in Houston.

NEW YORK (AP) - New York Rangers announced to* day that general manager Emile Francis will take over as coach of the National Hockey League team immediately, replacittg Larry Popein. The announcement came with the club en route to Vancouver after absorbing a 7-2 defeat from Buffalo »bres Thursday night in the first game of a six-game road trip. The loss left the stumbling Rangers in fourth place In tlie NHL's East Division, only one point ahead of Buffalo. Francis, general manager of the Rangers since 1964, has served two previous coaching stints, compiling a record of 283 victories, 170 defeats and 84 lies. This is the third time he has taken on the coaching responsibilities in mid-season. Dave Gardner appears to be much happier today than he was about a month ago. The reason is Gardner is starting to see some action with Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League. Gardner scored his first oal of the 1973-74 season nrsday night as the Canadiens humbled New York Islanders 8-3 in one of four games.

Gardner, who scored 109 goals in his final two years of junior hockey with Toronto Marlhor.os of the Ontario Hockey Association, saw only limited service in five games before the new year. He had become frustrated, but coach Scotty Bowman decided to use him after Montreal lost 8-4 to St. Louis Blues Jan. 2. Bowman bad a message for Gardner when he finally started him against Vancouver last Satuiday night. “He told me just to hustle and said if I made a bad mistake and was not hustling, I would be rij(ht back where I was,” Gardner said. His goal at 8:38 of the second period and the accompanying ovation made the 21-year-oid son of former NHL star Cal Gardner “glad to be back in action.” Guy Lafieur with two, Guy Lapointe, Peter Mahovlieh, Toros shoi^ld stay away from Ottawa Steve Shutt, Yvon Lambert and Frank Mahovlieh got the other Montreal goats. Germain Gagnon with two and Bob Nystrom scored for the ¡slanders. Flyers 7 North Stars 4 One of the league’s premier fighters, Dave Schultz of Philadelphia Flyers, may have turned over a new leaf. Schultz, who has been penalized only five minutes in his last eight games, had bis second three-goal game of the season to lead the Flyers over Minnesota. DflOP thèse in at MEMOTHfU-lN-lAWl« AS 'tOU WSS,AM- By THE CANADIAN PRESS If Toronto Toros followed horoscopes, it’s a sure bet the stars would tell them to stay away from Ottawa. The Toros may wish they could abandon the city after Thursday night when they blew a Ml second-period lead and had to be satisfied with a 6-6 overtime tie in a World Hockey Association game against New England Whalers. The deadlock gave the second-place Toros 46 points, but kept them two behind the Whalers in the East Division race. The Toros, who scheduled nine home games for Ottawa this season because their regular arena wasn’t available, have played three more games than the Whalers. In other games, Quebec Nordiques moved into a tie for third pla<K in the East Division with a 7-1 triumph over Angeles Sharks. ReJean Houle paced the Nordiques—who now have 43 points, the same as Cleveland McNickle, Háyes in top spot PHOENDC, Ariz. (AP) -Lonrahots Artie McNickle and Marx Hayes shot four-under-par 67s and moved to the t^ of a strong field Thursday in the first round of the f 150,000 Phoenix Open golf tournament. Hayes, a tour rookie from Oklahoma City, 'and McNickle, a second-year tour player from Sacramento, Calif., managed a one-stroke lead over a group of five with most of the game’s big names strung out further in the standings. Tied at 68, one stroke off the. lead, were veteran Texans Miller Barber and Fred Marty along with Paul Purtzer, Larry Wood and Bob Wynn. Johnny Miller, the United States Open champion and winner of last week's weather-shortened Bing Crosby national pro-am, was in a large group at 69. Masters champion Tommy Aaron and veteran Billy Casper had 70s. Defending titleholder Bruce Crampton matched par-71 on the 6,709-yard Phoenix country club course. Tom Weiskopf salvaged a 72 after twice winding up in the new ponds that dot the desert layout. Lee Trevino, making his first start of the season, had a four-over-par 75. Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer are not competing in this second stop on the 18.5-million pro golf tour. Schultz, who led the league with 259 penalty minutes last year, has only 171 penalty ininutes this season and now has 11 goals in 37 games, two more than he had in 76 games last year. Black Hawks Z Bruins 2 Phil Esposito’s 38th goal of the year with 45 seconds gave the Bruins the tie and enabled them to maintain their unbeaten string at home this season. The Bruins, 19-0-2 at Boston Garden, fell behind 2-0 by 3:40 of the third period before Bobby Orr broke Tony Esposito's shutout at 9:24. John Marks and Chico Maki scored for the Hawks. Sabres 7 Rangers 2 Buffalo Sabres’ 3-0 loss to Atlanta Flames Wednesday night may have sparked their lopsided win over the Rangers. “All I know is someone sent me a dozen roses calliEtg us pansies and I brought them to the dressing room,' said Sabres coach Joe Crozier, whose club now trails fourth-place New York by one point Crusaders—with three goals and two assists. The Sharks remained sixth and last in the West Division with 30 points, two behind Vancouver Blazers. STARTED IN OTTAWA The Toros, formerly the Nationals, started the WHA’s first season in 1972-73 in Ottawa. But because of poor attendance in the city switched their playoff games to Toronto^s Maple Leaf Gardens, and didn’t do much better. They moved to Toronto’s Varsity Arena, with a seating capacity of 4,860, to begin the 1973-74 campaign. The Toros had an average of 3,226 fans for 39 home games in Ottawa last year. This year, their average is about 4,300 in Toronto, but they feel they can attract more with their own and new arena. Toros 6 Whalers 6 The Toros led 3-0 after the first period and added two more in tiie second at 8:19 when Pat Hickey scored his second of the game and 10th of the season at 8:19, followed by Bob Leduc’s goal at 8:41. . The Whalers, however, scored twice late in the second period and got four more in the third before Rick Sentes tied the score at 13:54. In overtime, the Whalers outshot the Toros 9-1 before 3,817 fans but they couldn’t beat goalie Gilles Gratton. Billy Orr, his first of the season, and Wayne Dillon got the other Toronto goals. Hugh Harris scored twice and also had two assists for the'Whalers, with Jim Dorey, Don Blackburn, Mike Byers and .Torn Webster getting the others. For Blacicbum, 35, native of Kirkland Lake, Ont., it was his 1,000 game as a professional. When the Whalers took a 6-5 lead on Webster's goal, the Toros argued that the puck was kicked into the net, Rick Cunningham and Gavin Kirk each received 10-minute misconducts for the debate. “It went in off my leg," said Webster. Toronto outshot New England 29-27. Clinic set for Coaldale The Coaldale and District Minor Hockey Association, in co-operation with two other groups, are sponsoring a one-day hockey coaches clinic. This Monday evening at the Coaldale Sportsplex from 7:30 to 11 officials of the Coaldale Association, the South Oldman River Recreation Board and the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association wilt conduct the clinic. Anyone interested is invited to attend and bring their stick and skates. For any further information phone 345-3746.

(AP) — Dick Williams, lame*duck manager of the two-time World Series champion Oakland Athletics, said at least a temporary farewell to baseball Thursday. He accepted a job as a top aide to Florida biflionaire John D. MacArthur. Williams, blockcd by Oakland owner Charles 0. Finley from taking over m field boss of New York Yankees, vowed again he wohM not return to the AthM-ics to (inifti the reniaining two years of Ms contract. “1 have been stymied,'' Wil liams said, appearing at a news conference with MacArthur. "Naturally I hate to get out of baseball for any time.” Williams said he would continue a court fight against Finley, and indicated he would return to baseball if he was victorious. “It could be two years; it could be six months," Williams said. He said he chose MacArthur’s offer over several other business opportunities because the job would be chMe to his home in nearby Riviera Beach and give him a cbmce to be with hit family. “The financial arrangement is nice," he added. MacArthur said the contract he signed with Williams was the first he had ever made with an individual, but the details or terms of the deal were not disclosed. "He's going to do whatever I don’t have time to do," said MacArthur, 76. MacArthur said he would not stop Williams from returning to baseball before their contract expired, but turned to Williams and said: “If you like it, you’re here for the rest of ir life. illiams, who quit as man- ager of the Athletics last fall after leading them to a second World Series title, had signed to manage the Yankees next season. But Finley refused to release him from his contract and former American League president Joe Cronin upheld Finley. The Yankees subsequently hired Bill Virdon, former manager of Pittsburgh Pirates. MacArthur said Williams was not the first sports figure he's had on his staff, noting that he had employed Frank Leahy after he retired as head football coach at Notre Dame.
