Watson became embroiled in a fight with forward Dan Maloney of Los Angeles Kings. The pair fought briefly until the linesmen separated them. "Linesman McLaren had hold of Watson, who, when he was clear of Maloney, wrestl- ed the linesman to the Campbell said.

The Atlanta Braves' slugger should surpass Babe Ruth's mark of 714 home runs early in the season. He now has 713 to his credit. Hank Aaron passes up Hall of Fame for Magnavox NEW YORK (AP) The bats and balls with which Hank Aaron ties and breaks Babe Ruth's home run record may wind up in a store win- dow to help sell television sets instead of in baseball's Hall of Fame at Cooperstown, N.Y. The 39-year-old outfielder of Atlanta Braves made that dis- closure Monday in announcing he had signed a five-year, fl- million contract with Magnavox Corp. "I have given the Hall of Fame a lot of things in the past and they've just swept it under the Aaron said. He also said the 1974 season almost certainly will be his last as an active player, ad- ding: "Travelling and spring training are getting to be a drudgery." Aaron is only one home run away from the Babe's career record of 714.

All three players toil with the Clippers contracts or infringe on his baseball career. Aaron indicated 1974 would be his last season as a player although he might remain with the Braves in a front of- fice capacity. "I have no desire to man- he said. "I will be 40. Twenty years is long enough to play baseball. It's not the games so much. It's the travel and spr- ing training. "When I was young, I looked forward to spring training. But now it's a drudgery. I hurt most of the time. For the first 10 days I have trouble getting out of bed Aaron indicated a hidden bitterness over his lack of recognition. "I finally made it after 20 he said.

That doesn't match for size the established National Football League draft, a two-day affair that goes for 17 rounds with 442 players being selected by the 26 teams. That one is set for next Tuesday and the WFL will reconvene afterwards, apparently to discuss the ramifications of the NFL draft. Some of the top collegiate prospects like Tennessee State's huge defensive end, Ed Jones, probably won't even be drafted by the WFL because the new league believes he is already committed to the NFL The WFL says it isn't look- ing for a war with the'NFL and isn't interested in raiding players under contract to the older league. WFL officials admit, however, that rthey have talked to about 20 per cent of all players in the NFL.
