Recent tests taken by Temple University showed the Flyers are fat, or at least relative- ly overweight, as far as professional athletes are concerned. The 18 members of the Flyers weighed in at an average 192 pounds, and of that body weight 16 to 17 per cent was fat. Temple physiologists said that is too much for an athlete in prime con- dition. As a way of com- parison, professional football backs average eight per cent fat in total body weight, and linemen 18 per cent. The study showed the average college athlete's body is-12 per cent fat, while the average man on the street is 25 per cent lard. GIBSON SIGNS ST.

BOTH STORES WILL BE CLOSED ALL DAY WEDNESDAY, JAN. 29th FOR STOCKTAKING MEN'S WEAR LTD. 314 -71. Strut 8. -Ml -5ft Strut 8 MANCHESTER, England (AP) The Manchester United soccer club confirmed Monday it has sold George Best, its playboy superstar, to New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League. Best, who became the greatest name in British soccer and then threw his career away, will get for a five month season in the United States. Informed sources said the Cosmos will pay Manchester United about in six in- stalments. Best, a Northern Irishman, rocketed to fame by his skill in dribbling with the ball and shooting goals. He played alongside Bobby Charlton and Denis Law on the Manchester United team that won the European Cup of Champions in 1968. Five years ago, his temperamental behavior began to undermine his career. First, he was suspended after throwing mud at a referee while playing for Northern Ireland in an inter- national game.. Then he started his notorious vanishing acts. Without a word of warning, he would miss training and turn up in unexpected places. Once he showed up on a beach in Spain. Another time he was found in a London night club, dancing with the reigning Miss Great Britain. On another occasion he was staying with an actress in her London apartment. Manchester United suspend- ed him, fined him, forgave him and tried to coax him back into the team. Each time he walked out again. He last played for Manchester on New Year's Day, 1974. Best was valued at JSOO.OOO in his hey day. That was one good reason why Manchester United wanted to keep him in But as his' playboy reputa- tion grew and his soccer potential faded, the club saw its richest financial asset dwindling away.

Guidolin had more to re- joice about than tying his old team. After only five wins and four ties in their first 36 games, they have five wins, five losses and a tie to show for 11 outings this month. The Scouts took'a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals by Norm Dube and Guy Charron, blew the lead, and then went back in front on Robin Burns' third-period goal. Rod Graham and Phil Esposito were the other Boston scorers. The tie left Boston nine points behind Buffalo Sabres, who lead the Adams Division. The Sabres, meanwhile, ac- quired centre Fred Stanfield from Minnesota North Stars in exchange for winger Norm Gratton and future considera- tions. Stanfield, 30, who has 169 career goals, had only eight this season for the Stars. Los Angeles Kings and the Canadiens, who share first place in the Norris Division, both see action tonight. The Kings play New York Rangers at Los Angeles while Montreal visits Vancouver Ca- nucks. In other games, Min- nesota is at New 'York Islanders and Detroit Red Wings, at St. Louis Blues.

Shots on goal by Boston 10 12 Kansas City 11 8 Attendance Most underrated shooters Bernie Parent, the best goalie in hockey give or take Gerry Cheevers and Valdislav Tretiak, believes some of the best shooters are NOT among the top ten on. the NHL scoring list The Philadelphia Flyers' goaltender has put together his own personal "Most Underrated Shooters" list and it reads as follows: Fred Staufield, Minnesota North Stars: "Stanfield is a dangerous man at the point. His excellent shot often is un- derrated." Darcy Rota, Chicago Black Hawks: "You don't hear much about Rota but he's a fine playmaker and has some difficult moves." Ross Lonsberry, Philadelphia Flyers: "Our coach, Fred Shero, considers Ross the Flyers underrated most valuable player. In his own way Lonsberry does as much for the Flyers as Bobby Clarke or Dave Schultz." Jean Pronovost, Pittsburgh Penguins: 'Pronovost scores a lot of goals but for reasons I can't understand doesn't get much recognition." Bob Berry, Los Angeles Kings: "Berry is a Ross Lonsberry type who doesn't get half the credit he deserves. But he can fire the puck and is starting to get the points to prove his worth." Peter Stemkowski, New York Rangers: "Unfortunately for Stemkowski, he's often overlooked because of team-mates such as Brad Park, Rod Gilbert and Jean Ratelle. But Stemkowski is Nick Libett, Detroit Red Wings: "Libett is a" hard-nosed forward who would be one of the last players the Detroit team would ever trade. Like Lonsberry, Nick always hustles." Terry O'Reilly, Boston Bruins: "One of the toughest players in the NHL, O'Reilly has always given the Flyers lots of trouble." Curt Bennett, Atlanta Flames: "He's big and tough and always plays strong hockey against us. Bennett and Tom Lysiak, his team-mate, give me lots of trouble." Guy Lapointe, Montreal Canadians: "Guy is as good a defenceman as there is in the game. Even though he's been an Ail-Star, Lapointe doesn't get the kind of ink that Bobby Orr and Brad Park do." Whalers won 2-0 CANADIAN PRESS A shakeup didn't turn the slumping New England Whalers into an offensive powerhouse Monday night, but at least they won. Coach Ron Ryan, faced with a four-game losing streak, juggled his lines and the Whalers responded with a 2-0 win over Cleveland Crusaders in a World Hockey Association game. The Whalers, who had scored only eight times in their last five games, played their best game in two weeks to extend their East Division lead over Cleveland to 12 points. "We played terrible on the West Coast last said defenceman Brad Selwood, who drew an assist on the second New England goal. "He (Ryan) told us if we didn't straighten out tonight, things were going to happpen. We didn't set the world on fire, but we won." Selwood's slapshot early in the third period was tipped in by New England centre Gary Swain to give the Whalers some breathing room after Tom Webster gave the Whalers a 1-0 lead with his 23rd goal of the season in the second period. Goalie Al Smith picked-up his second shutout of the season, stopping 35 shots. Cleveland's Gerry Cheevers had 24 saves. Tonight Bob Leduc makes his first appearance at Maple Leafs Gardens as Toronto coach when the Toros play Quebec Nordiques, who lead second-place Toronto by eight points in the Canadian Divi- sion standings. After trailing the Toros dur- ing the first half of the season, the Nordiques overhauled them with 10 wins in 11 starts. Quebec cpach Jean-Guy Gendron says his team has reached a peak "because we're in good shape and have no injuries." BENY'S MID-WINTER SPECIALS!
