Hull, hockey’s second highest scorer with 688 goals in 18 seasons, says a possible merger between the two major leagues would only be for the betterment of the game. “This has been my thought ever since I signed the WHA contract: that at one time or another the two leagues would get together so that we could provide the people with the best possible entertainment. “When I was signing I said there will come a day very shortly when the two leagues will have to get together, and I’m very happy about it and hope the agreement is the start of something even better.” Hull says the exhibition games would be a good start. He said fans want to see “the Orrs, and the Espositos and the Martins, the Cour-noyers and so on, “And who do we owe the most to if it isn’t the people who pay our freight—the fans who come to watch and pay the prices?” Professional hockey must cater to the fans, he said. Players and management alike must start to think about the spectators and soon, before the fans become disenchanted. imong his eight additions for .he West Division team.

(AP) ~ Harmon Killebrew, fifth highest home-run hitter in major league baseball history, signed a 1974 contract Tuesday with Minnesota Twins but took a reduction that will bring his salary below fl00,000 Killebrew, 37, drew ¥105.000 in 1973, playing in only 69 ames with a .242 average and ive home runs for the American League club. He missed more than half of the season because of knee surgery Club president Calvin Griffith did not disclose the size of the pay cut Rod Carew, American League batting champion, and Tony Oliva are among the list of Twins who remain unsigned At tlie start of the lWi-74 Southwest Conference Girls’ Basketball League season, coach Les Santa of the Coaldale Kate Andrews Larks predicted that his gals would be right on top at Qie finish. Well, a prediction like this could hurt one’s image if they’re wrong, but so far Santa has been right on. A four-year title drought may have just come to an end for the Larks, who have yet to taste defeat in five league games. The Larks’ 5^ record leaves them holding a comfortable lead in first place since the second place club only sports three wins and a pair of losses. Defending champion Winston Churchill Griffins are in second batting a .600 average in their five outings while the Vauxhall Vi-Queens and Taber W. R. Myers Dawns share third ^t with two wins and three setbacks. The two remaining clubs in the league, Fort Macleod F. P. Walshe Meteors and PiC' lure Butte Sugar Queens are tied in the cellar with identical 1-3 records. All six clubs will be out Friday night to improve their records and the games will see Winston Churchill at Coaldale, Taber at Picture Butte and Fort Macleod at Vauxhall. Meanwhile the Stirling Lakers find themselves alone in first place in the Southwest Conference Boys’ Basketball League standings by handing the Winston Churchill Bulldogs a slim 50-48 loss last weekend. The Lakers kept their seven-game undefeated str^k alive vrith the win along with sole possession of first place. The two clubs were deadlocked in the top spot up until the big showdown. Bulldogs were relegated to second with a 6-1 record while Milk River Comets and Coaldale Gaels shared third with four wins and three losses each. Picture Butte Sugar Kings . are alone in fifth place with three victories in seven starts while Vauxhall Vikings follow in sixth with two wins and five setbacks. The league cellar is shared by the Fort Macleod Flyers and Taber Trotters, each with one win in seven games. In boys’ action Friday night, Taber is at Picture Butte, Vauxhall is at Fort Macleod, Coadlale is at Winston Churchill and Stirling is at Milk River, Meanwhile' two games will be staged in the Southern Alberta High School "A” Boys’ Basketball League Friday night. The Lethbridge Collegiate Institute Rams will host the Magrath Zeniths while the Raymond Comets entertain Catholic Central. manager Hal Laycoe fired. Poile, 49, said he had no plans but added that in the past six weeks he had turned down two offers—one from the NHL and one from the World Hockey Association. “If they made the offers again tomorrow, I would still say no,” he said. In a prepared statement, Poile said that he had “discussed the attitude of the players with Allan Eagleson (director of the NHL Players’ Association) and have consulted him with respect to my position. In the best interests of the Vancouver Canucks, whom I have been associated with since 1970,1 have decided to resign as assistant to the general manager.” Laycoe took over as general manager a year ago when illness forced Poile to step down after two years with the Canucks. The discontent in the Canucks’ front office erupted last week when coach Bill McCreary was fired. McCreary blamed Poile for his demise and Laycoe admitted there had been no rapport between Poile and McCreary. Laycoe also said he and Poile did not work well together. Poile countered by announcing that Laycoe was impossible to work with and that he didn’t intend to try any more. He said Laycoe wanted him to resign, but he had no intention of doing so. Hall, interim president while owner Tom Scallen is barred from the board pending appeal of a four-year prison sentence for theft of ¥3 million, said Monday both men would have to go. He said he would recommend Poile be dismissed and Laycoe be removed as general manager but be given a chance to stay on in a lesser capacity. Hall also said he wanted Larry Regan, formerly Los Angeles Kings’ general manager and now a scout for the Canucks, to become interim general manager, He said he would recommend hiring a new general manager—not Poile, Laycoe or Regan-for next year. Playing    against Philadelphia Flyers here Tuesday night, the Canucks dropped the game 3-2, their 28th loss in 45 starts this season.
