Bruins blanked the St. louis Blues 2-0 Tuesday evening in one of two National Hockey League games. Cleveland may have to change emblem Circle the wagons, it's an uprising By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS A week u-hich started out as a great one for the Cowboys is rapidly turning into a bad one for the Indians. The American Indian centre of Cleveland, Ohio, filed a million damage suit Tuesday against Cleveland Indians baseball team for using a comic Indian head as the club's symbol and said ils next target may be the At- lanta Braves' Chief Noc-a- Horna. Five other professional City Chiefs and Washington Redskins of the National Football League, Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League and Buffalo Braves and Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball more than 30 colleges have come sort of Indian nickname.

"It is not our intent to ridi- cule the said a team spokesman. "The symbol and the name Chiefs were chosen in a public contest and are ap- propriate for this area, which has a rich Indian heritage." The Redskins' symbol, which is not a caricature, has been the team's emblem since 1937. The Black Hawks wear a stoic and stern-looking head of Chief Black Hawk on their jerseys, similar to the Indian head on the buffalo nickel. The Buffalo Braves' em- blem is the letter B with a protruding feather while the Wariors have nolMng Indian in their emblem.

Miss Kreiner, of Timmins, Ont., placed sixth in the race with a time of one minute 56.13 seconds compared with Miss Pi-cell's "This was fantastic for young girl and it gave the whol team a one Canadia said after the race.

Selection of the first and second teams is made by the Professional Hockey Writers' Association with the coaches of the two teams filling out theil squads. No Detroit player was named in the original voling. Centre Bed Berenson was named lo the East Division squad by coach Al MacNeil.

Harkness accused MacNeil of politics and said that each team in the NHL should have at least two players in the game. "f think it's great that Ber- enson was Hark- ness said, "but I also think Gary Bergman and Mickey Redmond deserve to be in the game." According loHarkness, Redmond was probably by- passed by MacNeil because the Canadiens traded Red- mond, Guy Charron and Bill Collins to the Wings for Frank Mahovlich last year. "They (MacNeil and Mont- real general manager Sam Pollock) probably felt that if Redmond was named, they would look bad because of the trade." "And Hark- ness added, "MacNeil has been, out of the NHL all this season, so how does he know who Is playing well and who isn't? It means that he had to consult with someone and that someone was probably Pol- lock." ANDY VAN DOORN ANDY'S BARBER SHOP Is Now Open!

"It's degrading, demeaning and Means said. "I epitomizes the stereo- typed image of the American Indian. It attacks the cultural heritage of the American In- dian and destroys Indian pride." Means said he thought some action would be taken against Atlanta Braves within the next few months. The Braves' symbol is a grinning Indian with a lone feather in bis But Means said he objected to Chief Nooa-Homa, who emerges from a tepee behind the outfield fence and does a war dance every time a Brave hits a home run. "What if it was the Atlanta Germans and after every home run a German dressed in a military uniform began hitting a Jew on the head with a baseball Means asked. "Or what if it were the Cleveland Negroes and a black man came trotting out of a shanty in centre field and did a soft shoe? "Well, the Indian is tired of this label lhat depicts him to the larger segment of Ameri- can society as something to be laughed at and not to be taken seriously and therefore not due respect." Means was surprised to learn lhat Noc-a-Homa is really an Walker Jr., a 31-year-old half-Chip- pewa, half-Ottawa. "It Means said. "All the Chippewas used to do was hang around the fort any- way." MAY DIFFER That crack might not sit too well with Central Michigan University, whose nickname is the Chippewas. Elsewhere, Eastern Michi- gan, known as the Hurons, had some Indian students draw up an emblem last fall to replace a number of differ- ent figures displayed around the campus. The University of Nebraska at Omaha changed its nick- name from Indians to Maver- icks Jast May after receiving complaints from an Indian group. Stanford Indians changed their symbol before the 1970 football season after a cam- pus group that included Indi- ans complained about the old character, a little round-nosed feUow with. a slight pot-beljy. The new figure is a handsome chief in profile, complete with teaddress. Cheevers still roams, Bruins move four up By THE CANADIAN PRESS Boston Bruins and goaltender Gerry Cheevers bolh had some- thing to prove when the Na- tlonal Hockey League club started training camp at Lon- don, Out., last fall. Tlie Bruins, after a record- shattering season, fell flat in the Stanley Cup quarter finals. Their losses to Montreal Cana- diens in that series included the deciding seventh game on home ice. Cheevers' detractors d o n 'I knock him for the unimpressive post-season show by the Bruins since It was obviously a team effort. But they've made no bones in Boston that his roving style keeps them edgy. After a slow start, the Bean- towners have taken a firm grip atop the East Division lead fol- lowing Tuesday night's 2-0 win over St. Louis Blues and Cheev- ers is proving he's still one ol the league's outstanding net- minders. And he's still roving. In the night's only other scheduled game, California's captain Carol Vadnais scored on a power play in the third period to lift the Golden Seals into a 1-1 tie with Minnesota North Stars. LEAD RANGERS BY 4 The win gave Boston 67 points, four ahead of New York Rangers, in the East while St. Units dropped to fourth in the West, one point behind Califor- nia. The Bruins had held the lead briefly earlier in the month for the first time this year. Tonight the Hangers have an opportunity to close the gap while playing in Los Angeles against the lowly Kings. In other games, Toronto Maple Leafs visit Montreal Oanadiens, Minnesota plays the Red Wings at Detroit, Pittsburgh Penguins entertain Vancouver Canucks and the Califomians move on to Chicago against the Black Hawks. It was Bruin general manager Milt Schmidt who observed that Boston had "something to prove." However, few of the Bruins met the challenge early in the season, Only the continuing all-star ef- forts of centre Phil Esposito, who fired his 38th goal of the year against St. Louis, defence- man Bobby Orr and the goal- tending tandem of Cheevers and Ed Johnston kept Bruins in con- tention. An edict Issued by the Bruin management limiting the play- ers' outside activities in an ef- fort to shake their lethargic jlay drew player of other clubs, not the Boston personnel. BOSTON I ST.

The Blues, who had tied Bos- lon 6-6 and won 5-2 In earlier games at the Arena, put up a stubborn front before Esposito's late marker nailed Blues roolde goaltender Jacques Caron with his first NHL loss.
