England, the only other country to win an event today, was a distant third with 130 points and four gold medals. Rev. William Hare of Ren- frew, Ont., and Dr. Jules So- brian of Omemee, Ont., started the day with a 1-2 finish in the rapid-fire pistol competition with Hare break- ing the games record by one point with his winning score of 586.

But Orr had to leave the game with left in the third period after he was tripped, and x-rays today will determine the extent of the in- jury to his left knee. It is the same knee which was operated on in June, 1972. Orr is the fifth player to be dropped from the NHL East Division all-star team because of injuries. Jacques Lemaire, Serge Savard and Guy Lapointe of Montreal Canadiens and Gilbert Perreault of Buffalo Sabres were cut earlier. REPLACEMENTS NAMED Rod Gilbert of New York Rangers and Henri Richard of Montreal Canadiens were an- nounced as replacements for Lemaire and Savard while de- fencemen Jim McKenny and Borje Salming of Toronto Maple Leafs and Jocelyn Guvremont of Vancouver Canucks will replace Lapointe, Perrault and Orr. Darryl Sittler was to replace Perreault but the Maple Leafs forward asked to be excused because his wife is expecting a baby.

Bob Wagstaff, the defending champion, finished ahead of Scott Cranham, a Canadian resident of Grand Rapids, Mich., in the men's springboard diving com- petition. Rick Friesen of Bur- naby, B.C., who had led after the preliminary stage, finish- ed fourth.

Meanwhile the Bedford incident continued to bring repercussions at the Commonwealth Games despite efforts to soothe ruffled feelings between Kenyan and other athletes. Shortly after ailing middle- distance runner Dick Quax wrote a newspaper article criticizing Kenyan running tactics, he was expelled from the New Zealand team and ordered to leave the Games village. Quax had to withdraw from the metres last Friday because of a foot injury. It was in the race, won by fellow New Zealander pick Tayler, that English runner David Bedford tangled with four Kenyans and finished fourth. Bedford accused the Kenyans of using "dirty tac- tics" but did not lodge any protest. Kenyan team officials denied the accusations. The controversial Englishman had led the for 17 laps before he tired. Quax said "all hell" had broken loose over the new- spaper article in the Wellington newspaper The Sunday Times in which he wrote that he had taken Bed- ford out of the village "mainly to get him away from any Kenyans." WAS 'DISGUSTED' Quax said he was "disgusted" with Kenya's tac- tics in the and suggested that boxing fans should come out to watch the metres Tuesday be- cause it "will look like the ring at Canterbury court (the Games boxing Bedford has qualified for the Bill Holley, manager of the New Zealand team, said he had taken the decision to expel Quax himself and there had been "no pressure from any- one." Holley said the expul- sion had not been dictated by the nature of Quax's article. On Sunday, Games officials and managers of the English and Welsh teams appeared at a news conference to deny there was any friction between the Kenyan track stars and the British teams. Nichols triumphs SAN DIEGO (AP) A mis- sed putt helped Bobby Nich- ols, but he didn't back into his victory Sunday in the San Diego open golf tourna- ment. Rod Curl missed a 10-foot birdie putt on the 72nd hole of the tournament and lost a chance for a playoff. Nichols, 37, had a three-un- der-par 69 for a 275 total and the llth victory of his career, taking home in prize money. "I'm surprised to said Nichols. I really didn't ex- pect to. I figured he (Curl) would make that putt." Curl, who was seeking his first victory in six years on the tour, had a 70 and tied for second with veteran Gene Littler at 276, 12 under par. Littler had a final-round 66. Tom Watson and Miller Bar- ber were next at 27S, Watson with a closing 70, Barber with a 69. Rookie Ben Crenshaw had a 71 and was alone at 279. Nichols' victory was the first of the year by anyone other than Johnny Milter.
