Shula on Cloud Nine, but turbulence lies ahead HOUSTON (AP) - Coach Don Shula acknowledged Moo* day that he wa» floating on Cloud Nine. “1 am full of pride,” be said. "This was our greatest game.” But certain turbulence lies ahead for the Super Bowl footbail champion Miami Dolphins. Most of the big stars in Sunday’s 24-7 victory over Minnesota Vikings—Larry Csonka, Mercui^ Morris, Paul Warfield and Nick BuoniconU, among them—go to the conference table Tor renewal of their National Football League contracts. It could be a hassle, and Shula admitted it. “We have some talking to do.” the Miami coach said, adding that negotiations would be in the hands of A. P-Peppler, the team's director of pro scouting. However, everybody knows that Peppier is only the front man and that the final draft of all contracts is reserved for Joseph Robbie, the president and general manager, and Shula. “I run the football operations,“ Shula said firmly at an early morning news conference before flying back to Miami with his triumphant Dolphins. “You can expect to see a lot of new faces on next year’s team,” said linebacker Dick Swift, the Dolphin player representative. “A lot of important contracts come up for renewal and you can bet the guys will be asking more than the management wants to ^One of the key contracts is that of the 237-pound Csonka. who emerged as one of the sports’ true superstars by rushing for a record 145 yards and two touchdowns in the crunching humiliation of one of pro football’s most highly touted defences. His present salary is f55,000. He is expected to shoot for the 1100,000 range. Big raise demands can also be expected from such standouts as ball carrier Mercury Morris, safeties Jake Scott-who started his pro career with British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League—and Dick Anderson and Paul Warfield, one of football’s best pass receivers. All are in the $40.000 to $50,000 range. Tight end Jim Mandich, who caught (Hie of the key passes that helped crack Minnesota’s lirit early in the game, has to him after the confusion dies down.” Shula said Kiick had never discussed a desire to be traded with him although he had heard reports of the running back's unhappiness. “1 played golf with Jim recently and he didn’t mention played out his option and can dicker for new employment. Jim Kiidc, once a running mate of Csonka in the back-field, has been unhappy over being relegated to a secondary role behind Mercury Morris and has told friends he wants to be traded, “Mandich didn’t think he fitted into our plans,” Shula said Monday. “He thought we wanted bigger tight ends and stronger blockers. “But Jim has proved himself. He has played outstanding ball in the playoffs. I think he may feel now that he is an important cog in our team. I have promised to talk it,” Shula said. “Maybe it was because he beat me for 10 bucks, t have no intention of trading Kiick. He’s a valuable asset to the team.” Kiick scored one of the touchdowns against the Vikings, his first of the season. “I alternate Kiick with Morris,” Shula said. “Kiick has a way of smelling that goal line.” Shula, recently signed to a new contract reported to be for five years at $85,000 a year, was, beaming when he met with the Super Bowl press for the final time. “Every year the team has done better,” he said. ‘‘I consider what we did this year a greater accomplishment, although we lost two games. minec nooM ^SPECIALS Prices effective ONE WEEK ONLY!

Kittens capture gals’ tourney The Lethbridge Catholic Central Kittens chalked up three lop-sided victories and LCC add Eakett, Williams The Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks announced Monday that they^- have bolstered their line-up for the 1973-74 Alberta College Athletic Conference Men’s Basketball League campaign . with the addition of two veteran ball players. Kodiaks' coach Ben Brooks was more than pleased to acquire the services of Kendon Eakett and Gary Williams for the remainder of the season. As he puts it,” Eakett and Williams will provide stepped-up ball handling and add to our running game. Their added spark was very evident on the weekend when we practically ran the University of Calgary Jayvees off the floor.” Eakett, who was a starting guard for the Kodiaks in the 1971-72,season, was forced to sit on the sidelines for a year due to a knee injury. But Eakett feels healthy enough to dress again and apparently the lay-off hasn’t affected his game at all. On the other hand, Williams toiled with the University of Lethbridge Pronghorns of the Canada West University Men’s Basketball League season for part of this year, but has since transferred back to the LCC, Meanwhile the Kodiaks will be in action Wednesday evening when they host the U of L Pronghorns in an exhibition game. Game time is set for nine o’clock at the LCC gym. Minor hockey The Seals grabbed a slim 1-0 first period lead and hung on to defeat the Blades 2-1 in a Bantam “B” game Monday night.

Maybe that’s why he figures a continuing youth movement is the only cure for the ills of Pittsburgh Penguins. “We are going to build. We are going to build with younger players,” said Button who was named general Strong words at coast VANCOUVER (CP) — The new coach of Ure Vancouver Canucks of the National Hockey League says he’d "like to fumigate Üie whole place and have us all scrub ourselves with carbolic soap to get rid of this feeling of frustration,”    , Phil Maloney, hired Sunday to replace Bill McCreary as coach, said players were “taking their aggressions out on themselves and each other.” McCreary, meanwhile, said he plans a news conference in the next few days when he will “say a lot—I’ll bring everything into the open.” His dismissal followed Vancouver’s 8-1 loss to New York Rangers here Saturday, a game McCreary said was the absolute worst by the Canucks this season. The Canucks, floundering in last place in the NHL eastern division, have managed only nine wins and seven ties in 41 games. They won their ninth game of the season, their first 1974 victory, when Uiey edged California Golden Seals 3-2 on Friday. Maloney, 46, who lives in Vancouver, has been coach since last season of Seattle Totems, Vancouver’s Western Hockey League farm team. The Totems are second in the WHL. Hal Laycoe, Canucks general manager, said Maloney was “stepping out of a very favorable position.” manai Jack der fire. “We’re the third-youngest team in the league,” Button said. The third-youngest team in the NHL, however, is mired in seventh place of the West Divisiim and they got there with a host of players under 2&. But that isn’t discouraging Button, who has been director of scouting and personoel under Riley for the last five years. The Penguins have won two of their last four games. HAVE INDICATION “The last four games have given us solid indication that they (the team) are coming together,” Button said. Owner Tad Potter, who has recently criticized his team publicly, announced the change at a news conference. He said Riley, 52, resigned, and that, “I deeply regret accepting Jack Riley’s resigna-Uon.” The Associated Press learned, however, that Riley was pressured to quit and that Button had been approached about the job by owner Potter last Friday, two days before Riley told Potter he would step down. “Somebody had to go,” said Riley, who admitted the pressure of the job was affecting his health and that now he’ll “have some time to think things over.” “I resigned,” said Riley, “but I don’t think my contract would have been renewed. IMAGE HURT "It’s been a culmination of losing, of course, and probably the »ct that my image has been tarnished pretty badly by bad publicity. I’ve never been a public relations man but I’ve always been able to get along with people.” Riley and Button both were on the last year of three-year contracts with the cl&b. Riley says he has already reached a financial settlement with Potter, while a Penguin spokesman said Button’s contract will be renegotiated after his current pact expires.
