DENVER (AP) - The money woes of the Denver Spurs hockey club, which is reported to be financing road trips on a one-aba-time basis, may be coming to a head. Rowland Boucher, chairman of the Western Hockey League Spurs, said there may be hope of help from sports financier Jack Kent Cooke of Los Angeles. Cooke, owner of Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League and the Lakers of the National Basketball Association, said Saturday in a telephone interview he was uncertain whether to help the Spurs. Cooke said his decision on the matter probably would be made by Wednesday. Lagging attendance has been a problem for the Spurs, now in their third year in the WHL. Bennett King, president of the Spurs, was out of town during the weekend. Boucher said, however, it had appeared the club would fold about the middle of last week. "I haven't talked to King since then," Boucher added, "I'm not sure what he's decided." A month ago the Spurs tried to raise cash with a public of- Bottlers gain fourth place tie Purity Bottling gained fourth place tie with the Labor Club in the City Recreation Hockey League as they dumped the M and K Generals 6-3 in the first of two scheduled games.

The WHL has provided financial assistance to the Spurs, but league president Gene Kinasew-ich says no more league money is available. "We want this to go in Denver," he said. "We feel that Bennett King has done and is doing everything he can to make it succeed." An emergency league session would be called to determine what to do "if necessary," Kin-asewich said. An alternative, if Denver should fold, would be a regrouped five-team league with a revamped schedule. Brundage causes big disturbance LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) - Tense relations between the International Olympic Committee and International Ski Federation were thrown into an uproar Monday by IOC president Avery Brundage. Brundage, the Chicago millionaire who guards amateur standards religiously, dropped four controversial questions involving the commercial connections of Alpine skiers, into the laps of IOC members. Brundage has long sought to get Alpine skiing dropped from the winter Olympic program because of its alleged commercial ties. First, Brundage asked whether Alpine skters who competed at Mammoth Mountain, Calif., last summer would be eligible for the Olympics. Brundage termed the Mammoth Mountain meet "the Lange Summer Racing Camp," naming a U.S. ski boot manufacturer. Brundage has already threat- Argos show interest OTTAWA (CP) - Ottawa Rough Riders Monday indicated time is running out on British Columbia Lions' courtship of quarterback Russ Jackson, with Toronto Argonauts waiting in the wings. The Rough Riders have set a vague weekend deadline for a firm offer from the Lions for the right to try to talk Jackson out of his one-year retirement after 12 Canadian Football League seasons with Ottawa. The stumbling block appears to be Ottawa's insistence that B.C. declare what it is offering for Jackson's rights before the Riders will give the necessary permission for the Lions to approach him. Ottawa general-manager Frank Clair says the Riders are only following standard practice in their demand while the Lions say they should not have to commit themselves until they know they have a deal with Jackson. "Leo Cahill has told us be is interested," said Clair, referring to the Toronto coach "and he may hear from us by the end of the week. "We don't intend waiting for B.C. forever." The Riders are anxious to know what players they can expect, from either B.C. or Toronto, prior to the U.S. professional draft at the end of this week. In that way they will have a better idea of their needs and be better able to direct their scouting of U.S. professional castoffs. the Bottlers held period scores J ened to ban 10 skiers who par-of 3-1 and 5-2. , ticipated in the meet, including Gary Bartlett, LeRoy Erlend-' ~ ' ~ - - - . _ son, Vic Palychuk, Garth Lamb, Jack Fleming and John Kosh-ney tallied one each as they paced the Bottlers to victory.

In the second contest the Chinooks took an early 1-0 first period lead and increased it to &-1 before the third period came into play. Jim Band led the Chinooks as he notched two goals while Jerry LeGrandeur, Dennis Allen and Keith McDonald all flipped in a goal each. For the Labor Club, Don Bru-chet and Jerry Klinkhammer managed a goal apiece. ^_ Peter Duncan of Mont Trem blant, Que., and Rod Hebron of Vancouver. Next, Brundage asked whether skiers whose photo* graphs are used for publicity and promotion of commercial products would bo eligible for the Olympics. Then he asked whether a skier who earns between $50,000 and $60,000 a year by wearing his employer's trademark during races, should be eligible for the Winter Games. The International Ski Federation has demanded speedy clarification from the IOC in order to give the Japanese time tn prepare the Alpine ski events which aro scheduled just over one year from now. Walton stays uncertain TORONTO (CP) - Mike Walton's hockey future remained uncertain after a news conference called by his lawyer for Monday afternoon was abandoned. Walton left Toronto Maple Leafs early in December with what was later diagnosed as a depressive illness. His legal adviser, Alan Eagle-son, said Sunday that unless he heard from the National Hockey League club their plans for the 26-year-old centre from Kirk-land Lake, Ont., by Monday, he would call a news conference to take action. The news conference was cancelled because Eagleson was at home with (he flu. Mag-type Super-Stock wheels. Just one of many sporty Olds extras. Oldsmobil< Cutlass S is style all the way.
