But the lock on the victory could easily be snapped shut by foot-one belonging to either Mike Clark or Care Yepremian. The oddsmakers have in- stalled the Cowboys as six-point favorites over Miami Dolphins. That's one If you will, two field goals.

N. iigniiniiiiiniia Stan Fischler's Inside Hockey IlilllJIIlliiB pRANK "King" Clancy and Bill Chadwick, both former Na- tional Hockey League referees now in shinny's Hall of Fame, claim that superstars such as Bobby Orr get preferen- tial treatment from both linesmen and referees. These charges recently were brought before NHL referee- in-chief Scotty Morrison and he agreed with them, in part. "When it comes to the 'no-talking' Morrison ad- mitted, "I'd say, yes, the superstars get a break. For exam- ple, Bobby Hull has neither a "C" nor an "A" on his jersey but he often has quite a dialogue with officials after a Chi- cago penalty. By contrast, an ordinary player gets cut off quicker. We don't like this system of preference and I've brought it to -the referees' attention." Morrison insists that the Bobby Orrs, Brad Parks and Dave Keons, among other superstars, are not favored in other aspects of officiating. "I don't think they knowingly get any break on obvious said Morrison. A smallish, pleasant man, Scotty supervises a staff in- cluding 19 referees, linesmen and linesmen trainees from his Toronto office. But he frequently travels, scouting his men in rinks from Minnesota to Manhattan. Morrison's current obsession is enforcement of the league's anti-brawling legis- lation in which third-men in fights receive instant game mis- conducts. Morrison has a sheaf of statistics proving that the third man crack-down has worked; has, in fact, cut down on fight- ing and, despite the wails of bloodthirsty fans', has NOT hurt attendance one bit. "One of the myths a lot of Canadians said Mor- rison, "is Uiat American fans only go to hotkey games to see fights and blood. We've now proved that people in the States appreciate good hockey as well as the fans in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver." There are some aspects of the NHL rulebook that still perplex Morrison. One night recently while watching the Ran- gers play Montreal, Scotty began thinking about a rule that ISN'T in the book. It happened when Peter Mahovlich and Henri Richard of the Canadiens accidentally ran headlong into each other at center ice, with Mahovlich falling stunned, flat on his back. Jean Ratelle of the Rangers yelled at referee Bill Friday, "Hey, ref, you should have given Richard two minutes for Which raised the one player on the Cana- diens be penalized for fouling another? "Not under our present said Morrison. "But if, say, two players on the same team got into a fight with each other, and stalled the game, I guess we could call a penalty tor that." knock down or intercept passes aimed in hie decision.' But in this game, with two defensive powers gaining much of the attention, victory ma well hinge on the three-poi boot. Yepremlan, the D o 1 p h i n field goal specialist, has been the spotlight since his 37-yarder that catapulted Miami to its 27 24 sudden-death playoff victory in double overtime against Ka sas City Chiefs. He was limited to three extr pcints In the American Confer ence championship, won 21-0 b the Dolphins over Baltimore Colts. Clark has had an easy time the playoffs. The Cowboys hav won their post-season games with relative again Minnesota Vikings and 14-3 the National Conference cham plonship with San Francisco '49ers. PRESSURE ON HIM But now the pressure is on him, particularly since he considered a kicker with on] middle-distance ability whil Yepremian is credited witt: more long-range ability. "Sure, the pressure' magm Clark says, "especial! when you realize the game, an with it, the whole season, can ride on one last-minute kick. "I haven't been reading the papers he smiled, "bu if Garo's been getting all th attention, well, maybe he's fee ing the pressure even more." EXPLAINS JOB Clark says he operates ex actly the opposite from the n of the players when it comes to ;etting ready for a game "They get all psyched up to ritch that makes them perform he observes. "But psy ebologically, I try to drag my self down. If you go out on the field all hopped up about wha 'ou're going to try, then you ose your concentration, you timing and you can forget the whole thing." Clark, a nine-year veteran in ,he pros who came to the Cow >oys in 1968 after being witl 'hiladelphia and Pittsburgh, is strictly a kicker. "Sometimes I feel kind of seg not playing with the rest of the he says I'd really like to get into a lame as a runner or receiver. "I run offensive patterns ill .iractJce when the defense is rilling. I think the team re- pects me a little more for that, lecause I don't isolate myself. "But as for doing :t in the ame, I guess it just wouldn't work. I don't know any of the ignals or details of the plays." Scotty remembers one such incident that took place when he refereed in the Western League. "There were these two tough guys teammates on the same be said, "one was Connie Madisan and the other Brent McNabb; and Hiey got into a fight with each other at centre ice. It was the craziest thing I ever saw." Speaking of crazy things, Morrison was involved in one recently while coaching a Tyke team in his spare-time near is Toronto home. "Imagine, the referee called three penalty shots 'against my team in one said Morrison. "Well, the first one '11 admit, we deserved. But second one couldn't have been a penalty shot no the infraction happen- ed at centre ice." Morrison spotted the Tyke league president nearby and presented him with the facts. He added that if his team lost >y one goal he'd file an official protest. "We tost Scotty recalled, "and I was hopping mad. mean I was so mad at that Tyke referee you'd never know that I was referee-in-chief of the National Hockey League. And I did file a protest. But I was a coach this time and the refs ignored the way my refs ignore complaining coaches in the Youngsters meet guests The youngsters of Lethbridge will get a chance to meet the celebrities who will attend the 1972 Kinsmen Club Sportsman's Dinner Feb. 5.

Y Cfff. IT BEIN1 IN LOVE IS UONKRFUL IF VOU STAY THAT WAV, SON, IT'LL BE) FUPPIN1 -S MWELLOUSl (g Well behind Magnussen Irwin rather upset LONDON, Ont. (CP) A nervous Cathy Lee Irwin sat de- jected on a bench Friday, unlac- Ing her skates after completing her sixth compulsory figure in lie senior women's competition of the Canadian figure-spaking championships. "I went to go to the Olympics she said biting a finger- tail. "I don't want to wait until lie next Olympics year." The 19-y e a r -o I d Toronto skater was bitterly expecting what was confirmed later in of- ficial sixth-place standing in the six compulsory figures which account for 50 per cent of the competition. It left her well back of defend- ing champion Karen of North Vancouver, who held a substantial lead over Janice of Hamilton and Ruth Hutchinson of Vancouver. Mary McCaffrey of North Vancouver and Dana Prychun of Toronto took fourth and fiftl respectively. Free skating, which takes tlace tonight, makes up the ither 50 per cent of the senior competition. ASSURED SPOT most of the year made it more difficult to return to competi- tion. "Each successive competition makes it easier to get in front of the judges. Just being under pressure again it's kind of rough." Then why return to the pres- sure, the strenuous hours of training, the nervousness? "I don't know. I love skating. It's something that keepi you going. I've come this far you want to see just how far you can go. WHA draft next month EDMONTON (CP) The World Hockey Association's first annual draft will be held in Anaheim, Calif., Feb. 11-14, it was announced Friday by Bill Hunter of Edmonton, the WHA's executive director of playing ac- tivities.

Calgary, Ed- monton, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Hunter said '.he franchisee will be drafting "from all of the game" and added that with all clubs starting "from parity" there would be keen competition to obtain the best talent. Miss Magnussen already I assured a spot on Canada' women's skating team at nex month's Olympics in Sapporo apan, by virtue of her third lace finish in last year's work hampionships. The Canadian Figure Skating awciation will choose one or more skaters to cojnplet women's team and those raters are usually the top fin ishers at the Canadians. Miss Irwin, runner-up to Miss iagnussen hi 1970 Canadians was expected by some ers to give the 19-year-old North 'ancouver skater her stiffesl competition. A fractured pelvis suffers during 'i practice session one week before last year's Canadi- forced Miss Irwin to miss K national event that year. "No, I don't think Miss twin replied when asked If the toddent had hampered her skating in the figures. "But I on't feel completely up to irm." "It takes a while to get back your peak after layoff. Something like that kind of cuts chunk out of your competitive ear." She said the injury does not bother her too often. "Sometimes when there's weather change it hurts there's a kind of throb. My nerves are the worst thing bout it."
