The 26-year-old player has been told by his lawyer, Joseph Keough, not to discuss the case because of possible court litiga- tion. Forbes and Henry Boucha of Minnesota North Stars tangled Jan. 4 in a game at Bloomington, Minn. They served penal- ties. Then Boucha suffered a cut requiring 25 stitches when.struck in the right eye area, apparently by Forbes' stick, in an- other incident. A Hennepin County, Minn, grand jury heard testimony in the case Monday, but no indictment has been announced. Campbell conducted a seven-hour closed hearing Tuesday in Minnesota and 24 hours later handed down the suspension in Montreal. The announcement was made in a news release. The suspension has been denounced as too harsh by the Bruins and as too light by many of the North Stars. Forbes, Keough and Bruins' managing director Harry Sinden appeared at a news, conference Thursday night in Boston Garden. Keough'criticized Campbell for issuing what he called a news release "loaded with inaccuracies and in- nuendo." "I'm shocked that a person of Mr. Campbell's stature, particularly one who is a lawyer, would issue such a statement knowing action is pending in the Minnesota Keough said. "No admissions were made by Mr. Keough said. "Statements by Mr. Forbes were taken out of context." Keough said Campbell had assured him that the hearing would be private, with no tape recorders and with the league presi- dent merely taking notes. Keough said he was told "rules of evidence would not apply." The lawyer said that in the news release Campbell called the assault on Boucha "unprovoked" and "vicious." "This is not the case, nor was the attack Keough said. "The only viciousness I can see is on the part of Mr. Campbell in his release. "This was supposed to be a private hearing. Then he gives his version, loaded with inaccuracies and innuendo. I think Mr. Forbes' rights to a fair trial have been damaged." Keough said that neither he nor Forbes have received any notice of an indictment from Minnesota. Shortly before the news conference, Forbes talked teammates Bobby Orr, Phil Esposito, Johnny Bucyk and Carol Vad- nais out of boycotting the all-star game in Montreal next Tuesday. The four had planned to boycott the game to protest Forbes' suspension and Campbell's handl- ing of the case. "It's got to make you feel good when guys think enough of you to want to do something like Forbes said. "How- ever, the National Hockey League cannot afford to have four guys of that quality not play in the all-star game." Kings continue to win away games THE CANADIAN PRESS Los Angeles Kings, contrary to sports tradition, continue to win most of their National Hockey League road games. The Kings got two goals from Don Kozak and good goaltending from Rogetien Vachon to beat Boston Bruins 4-1 Thursday night and extend- ed their road-victory streak to eight. They repaid the Bruins who knocked them out of first place in the Norris Division with an 8-1 setback in their previous encounter, Dec. 12. The Kings have been scrambl- ing to catch division-leading Montreal Canadiens since and now are one point behind. In other games, Philadelphia Flyers blanked Washington Capitals 4-0 and Detroit Red Wings defeated Kansas City Scouts 7-4. The Kings now have 14 road wins, two losses and six ties, best in the league. It was Bos- ton's first loss in 10 home games. Butch Goring and Frank St. Marseille were the other Los Angeles scorers. Vachon made 33 saves. Ken Hodge ruined his shutout with a third-period power-play goal. At Philadelphia, defenceman Ted Harris got his first goal since 1973 and Reg Leach picked up his 21st of the season for the Flyers. Bernie Parent picked up his eighth shutout of the season, stopping 20 shots as the Flyers boosted their Patrick Division lead over second-place New York Rangers to 10 points: Parent had to stop just one shot in the first period. Rick MacLeish and Bill Cle- ment had the other goals. The Flyers played without forward Dave Schultz, bench- ed by coach Fred Shero for taking too many misconduct penalties in recent games. Indianapolis Racers and a local radio station promoted the Racers' World Hockey Association game with Hoop event at Cardston An eight-team, four school invitational basketball tourna- ment was slated to get under way this afternoon at Cardston High School. At four o'clock Cardston B tangled with Magrath B while at Winston Churchill B met Raymond B. In A games Raymond does battle with Magrath at seven while at Cardston takes on Churchill. Saturday will see the B con- solation at four o'clock and the final at The A con- solation is slated for seven with the primary final at Cleveland as a "guaranteed and promised everyone who attended a free ticket to the next home game if In- dianapolis lost. The promotion worked in a big way Thursday night. The Racers put together consecutive victories on home ice for the first time this season to defeat the Crusaders 4-2. And the crowd, was the biggest of the season in Market Square Arena since the Oct. 17 opener drew more than In the only other game, San Diego Mariners downed Edmonton Oilers 3-2. A game between Michigan Stags and Chicago Cougars at Detroit was postponed due to the Stags' continuing financial problems. LOS ANGELES 4 BOSTON 1 First period: 1.

Reg Osmond connected for four goals to lead the locals to the victory, while Albert Du- mont and Ron Simmons each scored twice. Mark Schiebner and Greg Kveder had the other Native Son markers while Kevin Seaborg and Don Blanchard replied for the Claresholm team. The Native Sons exploded for eight goals in the first period while Gary Warner was shutting out the Cattle Barons. The two clubs played through a scoreless second period before splitting four goals in the final stanza. The locals outshot Clareshoim 53-22 and took six of io penalties handed out. The Cattle Barons were assessed with the only mis- conduct. Paced by the two goal ef- fort of captain Joe Meli, Lcthbridge Y's Men's Native Sons upended Taber Palace Pats 5-3 in Central Alberta Junior B League action Wednesday. Sons, preparing for the Canada Winter Games, built up period leads of 2-1 and 4-1 before holding off a spirited Taber surge in the third period. Ken Klinkhammer, Dwayne Howell and Albert Dumont added single markers for the Sons while Ted Weist, Robin Knibbs and Ron Simmons ac- counted for the Taber scoring. Only 10 minor penalties were whistled down in the game with the two clubs each picking up five. -The HeraUl- Sports Study in joy Kermit Zarley is a study in joy as he sinks a 30- foot birdie putt.

Reds offer Rose large salary cut CINCINNATI (AF) It isn't his first sub-.300 season in 10 years that rankles Pete Rose. Or the whispers that, as he approaches the age of 33, he may be heading over Ihe hill. The unkindest cut of all recently came in the mail from the Cincinnati Reds' front office. The oldest and highest-paid member of the National League baseball power has been asked to take a sizeable salary cut. Rose, the league's most valuable player in 1973, doesn't deny the lower salary Andreachuk with Jets WINNIPEG (CP) Winnipeg Jets of the World Hockey Associa- tion today announced the recall of Randy Andreachuk of Lethbridge from Roanoke Rebels of the Southern Hockey League.

"That business about it be- ing an off-year has been over- said Rose, who open- ed a new 24-hour restaurant this week a couple of blocks from the Cincinnati high school he attended. He's stinging over off- season talk that paints him as the scapegoat in the Reds' runner-up finish to Los Angeles Dodgers in the Western Division race. "I disagree that I had a bad year.

He led the National League in doubles, runs scored was on base more than any other player in the major leagues and set a career fielding record. He blames the decline of his batting average on the unusu- ally-high number of walks he received and a 3-for-39 per- formance in Los Angeles that he attributes to fan abuse. "I miss .300 for the first time in 10 years and I'm suddenly out of shape and a 'fatboy.' Well, I didn't miss a game in 1974. LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD.

TYPEWRITERS North Stars unhappy, suspension 'not enough' BLOOMINGTON, Minn: (AP) Several players with Minnesota North Stars said Thursday the 10-game suspen- sion given Dave Forbes of Boston Bruins for injuring another player with his stick was insufficient. "It's not forward Dennis Hexlall said. "A 10- game suspension is you're suspended for deliber- ately trying to injure someone." "It was a light said captain Bill Goldsworthy. President -Clarence Campbell of the National Hockey League imposed the suspension Wednesday for an attack on Minnesota's Henry Boucha in a game Jan. 4, saying: "This is one of the most vicious incidents that I have ever been called upon to deal with, and it must be dealt with accordingly." Boucha suffered a cut near the corner of his right eye and a broken cheekbone when hit with the butt of Forbes's stick. He underwent surgery for the fracture and to correct double vision in the eye. HAS DOUBLE VISION Another operation may be necessary as he still suffers from double vision. "My sight is he said. "But apparently some muscles in the eyeball were damaged. I don't know when. I'll be able to play again." "It's not for rne to say if the suspension is good or bad. But it seems to me the indictment may have had something to do with the decision." A grand jury in Minneapolis has indicted Forbes for "assault with a dangerous weapon, but without intent to inflict great bodily harm." Campbell said the indict- ment, had no bearing on his decision. Weekend looks good for skiers Conditions should be near perfect for the Media Molstar Race at Westcastle Saturday, as the resort is reporting ;a base of thirty inches at the lodge and six feet at the top. The slopes are packed and groomed, with the temperature averaging 28 degrees. The road is dry and bare, except for slippery sec- tions for the last two miles. All lodge facilities are open. The races, scheduled to begin at a.m. Saturday, are fun oriented and run on the intermediate hill to allow everybody to compete. Meanwhile, Fernie has four to five inches of new snow on a nine foot base at the top, with a four foot base at the lodge. Temperature is hovering around 14 degrees, and the main runs are packed, with powder still available in the trees and the bowls. Fernie will run a Molstar event on Sunday. Intermittent snow is forecast for the weekend. Kimberley reports ex- cellent conditions on packed runs. There is no new snow, and the temperature at report time was two degrees with no wind. One Minnesota official said: "I think it would have been fair to suspend him for the re- mainder of the season." Dennis Hextall was the most outspoken of the players. He said there's nothing wrong with being aggressive, that fighting is a give and-take thing. "But using a stick isn't be- ing aggressive. A stick scares anyone. If any player says he isn't afraid of another man waving a stick, he's a liar. Now it seems you're going to have to carry your stick at all times. I know I'll never drop mine again. I may need it for self-defence. "I don't know about the fu- ture of all this. But the way things are going, someone is going to get killed." Boxing eliminations Saturday at 7 p.m. Boxing, amateur style, will be the order of the day Saturday at the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute. The top amateur boxers in Alberta will be vying for positions on the Alberta boxing team that will compete at the Canada Winter Games. The bouts will get under way Saturday evening at seven, and the winners will make up the 11 man Alberta team. Some of the top names in Alberta boxing, including the Sincennes brothers, Norman and Conrad, Bruce Anderson, Charlie Prongua, Andy Stump and many others, will be taking part. An officials clinic is being conducted throughout today and will culminate Sunday after the people taking the clinic have the opportunity to officiate at the card Saturday night. University team plays twice The University of Lethbridge Pronghorns will be out to redeem themselves after a pair of losses last weekend when they host Camrose Lutheran College for a pair of Alberta College Athletic Conference hockey contests tonight and Saturday. The Pronghorns take the ice against Camrose at Henderson Ice Centre tonight at 8 p.m. The two clubs will meet again Saturday afternoon at two.
