Preparation ST1 Happy for Hull is the general feeling Chicago fans waste no tears on Black Hawks CHICAGO ers the caliber o( Bobby Hull do not wash ashore daily like so many shells from Lake Michigan. So on the surface the response by Chicago hockey fans to Hull's defec- tion seems quirky. "Everyone here was happy for said Barry Holt, a young La Salle Street law- yer and astute sports fan. Happy that Hull fell into a fortune and pleased that the Black Hawks' management got plucked. Hull, the splendif e r o u E National Hockey L e a g ue scorer, recently signed a 52.6 million contract as player- coach of Urn Winnipeg Jets for the next 10 years. The Jets are part of the, literally speaking, newly minted World Hockey Association. Hull is one of the most popular athletes in Chicago history. Neither his salary holdouts nor his hair trans- plant for greater television commercial appeal has made him a money-grubber in the eyes of the public. It Is com- monly said here that Hull will sign autographs until his hand atrophies. Hull has been the fan's dream: gently approachable in a restau- rant, a demon in the rink. The Hawk management, however, is much more scantily revered. "They've ran their busi- ness like that old Marine Corps said Jim Mullen, sports editor of the Chicago Sun-Times. "Hooray for me, and to hell with you." For years Chicago Sta- dium, home of the Hawks, has been called Octopus Palace because as soon as you walk in the joint they got you. Until recently there was not a water fountain m a place that can crowd in throats. "Do you know what the response was to the screams for asked fan Holt. "Raising beer prices from 50 cents to 75 cents a cup." Last fall the Hawk man- agement was indicted by the federal government for rais- ing the cost of a program from half a buck to 75 cents during the price-c o n I r o 1 freeze. The case is still pend- ing in the courts. But it has been decided In the hearts of the fans: Good luck, Bobby. Tickets are another source of fan disgruntlement. Tick- ets range from for box seals to for the second balcony. The prices are the highest in hockey; so is the second balcony. (The Chi- cago Bulls basketball team plays at the same stadium and charges ?6 to for tickets.) In the days when a guy could walk in off the street and buy a ticket, he'd say, "Gimme one in Then he'd begin an unesca- lalored ascent, unpersonaU ing Sir Edmund Hillary. Now, you can buy a ticket only if you once bought or were willed season tickets (which often means you are a corporation executive or the heir of a corporal 1 o n or only if you don't look like a cop and go into the nearby tavern where the scalpers tipple. The Hawks p r o u d I y say they have excellent parking. The fans protest that It costs four bucks a game. Besides the disdain with which the Hawk manage- ment has treated fans, it seems they have been as arrogant with some o! the players, including Hull. Fans say they won't for- get how the Hawks rubbed Hull's face in the mud in ]9G9. That was after Hull held out for a larger salary for half the season, They chesl-Uiumpingly called one of their rare press confer- ences to announce that Hull had signed and that they had extracted an abject apology from him. Hull says ht hasn't forgotten that, either. Ed Short, general manager of the Chicago concoction of the WHA, says he has re- ceived hundreds of telephone requests for season tickets. He thought there might have been some reaction from Hawk fans glad to see Hull when he came to town, glad for a refreshingly new game in town. Perhaps Leo saw the writing on the wall Cubs staggering, Durocher steps aside as manager ATLANTA (AP) Leo Duro- cher, who took over the down trodden Chicago Cubs in 196 and made them pennant con tenders a year later, has "stepped aside" as manager. Vice-president Jolin Holland used that phrase in making Ihe announcement early today leaving it unclear whether The Lip had quit or been fired. In any case, Whitey Lockman director of player development is the man picked by owner Phi Wrigley to revive the Cubs They are currently languishing in fourth place in the Nationi League East, 10 games out o first. The Chicago Sun-Times re ported today that Wrigley ha( summoned Durocher to his apartment Monday night for a top-secret meeting, the second such summit conference in nine months. The newspaper said a Cubs source predicted, "Leo is going to have to do a tremendous sell ing job to keep from getting fired.1 SAYS IT'S NOT MORALE Lockman, former New York Giants first baseman under Du- rocher, denied that the Cubs ere suffering from morale prob- lems. "Of course, I haven't been too close to the team in my position this he added in an inter- view today, lu's 46th birthday. He said he was hard put to di- agnose the team's ineffective- ness. "You have to remember that Pittsburgh and St. Louis have been playing exceptionally he said. Lockman, Holland and other !ubs staff were in Atlanta for knight's all-star game, in which Cub. shortstop Don Kessinger is starting for the National jeague. LEO NOT TALKING Durocher had dropped from sight and was unavailable for comment. No big player changes are an- icipaled, said Lockman, and managing policies are not ex- pected to be drastically re- 'amped. "The first thing I'll do is to get together with the coaching taff and evaluale the club. We lave good, solid personnel down he line and I think we have a ;ood chance of contending for he division he said. Lockman spent 15 years as a ilayer in the majors, coming up n 1945 and retiring after the 959 season with Baltimore and !mcinnati. He played under Du- ocher when he managed New rork for 71- years in Hie late 40s and early '50s. When Bobby T h o m s o n ps ninth inning home run took the 1951 Giants into the World Sc- ries over the Brooklyn Dodgers, Lockman was one of the base- runners who crossed the plate. Lockman's first assignment after joining the Cubs' organiza- tion in 1964 was to manage Dal- las-Fort Worth in the Texas League. He guided the team to a first-place tie and was named Manager of the Year in the league. From 1967 to 1970 Lockman managed Tacoma Cubs of the Pacific Coast League. The Cubs won the PCL championship 'in 1969 and he picked up his sec- ond Manager of the Year award. No pact, no play -Namath HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (AP) Joe. Namath, New York Jets' quarterback, said Monday he will not play an exhibition game until he has signed a contract. "I will continue to work out, but there will be no live combat for me until we come to the superstar said after his first practice session with the Na- tional Football League team. He reported to camp Sunday, week late, having asked extra time to clean up some business affairs. Namath, whose contract ex- pired last season, reportedly is asking at least a year. "Jimmy Walsh (Namath's at- torney) has talked to the Jets' management, but we have come to no agreement the quarterback said. "We plan some meetings in the future and I hope we can get together." Asked how far apart the two were on negotiations, Namath, at a news conference, spread his arms as wide as possible and said: "This far." He said the difference was in rath salary and length of con- tract. "We are thinking about two he said. "I think that would be (lie most satisfactory or all concerned because of the qucslion of my physical abil- ty." Namath has had problems vith both knees and has played mly nine games during the last wo seasons. He missed most of asl year after suffering a lefl eg injury during the Jets' first exhibition game The Jets first exhibilion game this season is Aug. 5 against Sar. Francisco at Jacksonville, Fla. In 1970 he was appointed su- pervisor of player develop- ment-a minor league job-and two years later he was ap- STEPS Duro- clicr stepped aside Monday as manager of the Chicago Cubs of the National Base- ball League. pointed assistant to the vice- president. Lockman claimed to have no knowledge of players' discon- tent with Durocher's managing, although such strife was appar- ent last year. H o w e v e r, Holland quoted Wrigley as saying, "If there has been any friction between Leo and the players this year, then Leo's decision will allow the players in the remainder of the season to find out for them- selves If they are pennant con- tenders." A perennial second-division club until Durocher's arrival, the Cubs caught fire a year later and finished no lower than third In the next five years. Over that period they won 430 games and lost 379; a 51-game margin over .500. Since he began managing In Brooklyn 33 years ago, Duro- cher has directed his teams to wins, a high among active managers. Holland said Durocher would work with the team "on a con- sulting basis in the coming months lo help analyse our situ- ation and help in future plan- ning." ANDY CAFF rON'T THINK I'LL GO TO THE TONIGHT. Stamps whip Tiger-Cats 28-13 Unhappy reunion for Williams CALGARY CP) Calgary Stampeders welcomed back for- mer coach Jerry Williams Mon- day night by trouncing his Ham- ilton Tiger-Cats 28-13 in a Cana- dian Football League exhibition game. It was the final match for each team before the start ol regular play and the victory was Calgary's first in four pre- season games. Hamilton has also lost three and won one in exhibilion play. The Slampeder defensive unit wrapped the Ticals into confu- sion during the first half lo keep the Hamilton squad out of scor- ing range as Calgary built a 17- 0 lead. But a lapse midway through the third quarter allowed Ham- illon lo score llieir first touch- and a Tiger-Cat intercep- tion completed the team's scor- ing a minute laler. Calgary scored two touch- downs, two singles, two field goals and three safeties. Rudy Linterman got the open- ing score when he hauled in a 20-yard pass from quarterback lim Lindsey. Larry Robinson rnade his first of Iwo converts and picked up a single on Ihe following kickoff which trav- elled deep in the end zone where Lewis Poeter conceded. The long kickoff came after a penalty against Hamilton on the touchdown play moved Ihe ball lo Ihe Hamilton 50. The other Stampeder touch- down capped the game's only successful drive when in the final quarter Hugh McKinnis took a pitch from Lindsey seven yards around the end. Robinson's field goals, both In the second quarto1, came from 21 and 25 yards. The three safeties were con- ceded by Hamilton punter Ian Sunter. Twice the Tiger-Cals were inside their 15-yard line and trying for field position but the final two-pointer came when Ihe snap from cenlre sailed over his head and bounced into Ihe end zone. He scooped the ball up but conceded in the face of three i charging Stampeder linemen. Golf league COUNTRY CLUB Low net J. Home, Dori- galli; 39. Low gross M. Tanner, Tol- leslmp: 31.

The ball hopped Into hands of Ticats Gord Christian, who carried it to the Calgary 17-yard line. Two plays later Buchanan was in from the eight.

(CP) When Walter broke into lire National Hockey League with New York Hangers in 1908 he signed for 512.000 a year. Last week, about four years later, the nigged cenlre put his signature on a three-year contract calling for about a year. The Emsledctten, Germany, native figures he's worth it. "I'm young ant! I'll he pet- ting heller in years he said in an Interview Mon- day ot the hockey school lie runs In this community just southwest of Stratford. "New York needs young players like myself, Brad Park and Billy Fairbnirn In go with guys'like Vic llad- field and Hod Gilbert (o win Stanley Cups. You have lo pay guys if you want good players." Tkaczuk disputed Ihe wide- ly-circulated figure. "Let's put it this way. It's over If it includes bo- nuses, is too low. If it docsn'l, il's loo high." To pass the salary figure, the 24-year-old Ranger centre must score 30 goals find 70 points nnd have a goals for aganst plus, the Rangers must make the play- offs and the Ranger goallend- Ing must allow fewer than 195 goals. Tknczuk rcndily admils Ihat Ihe presence of Ihe World llorkcy Association combiner! wilh NHL eipamion has helped him and other NIIL players in contract talks. After his first two-year con- Irncl expired, Tkaczuk and Emilc Francis, Danger gen- eral manager coach, had a hitler contract dispute. Tkac- zuk eventually signed another two-year contract but "I thought I was worth more." "But this year il went really smoolh with both New York and Chicago (Cougars of tho MET COUGAIIS Before signing with the Rangers, Tkaczuk's lawyer arranged "two or three" meetings wilh Ihe Cougars but said he wasn't juM plnying one league againsl Ihe olhir for more money.

During the summer, Tkac- zuk lias been busy at his hockey school which will have a total enrolment of boys for the eight-week outing. It's the school that will pre- vent him from playing with Team Canada against the Russians this fall. Tknczuk .said he was invited lo join Team Canada bill had lo lurn Iho offer down.
