(CP) Johnny Bower, former Toronto Maple Leafs goal- tender, says lie's impressed with youngsters lie is encounter- ing as an instructor at Hie Northwest Territories' first hockey school. "T h e r 3 's some good kids says the 45-year-old Bower. "I'm really impressed. They're asking questions' skat- ing and shooting pretty hard." Bower and Maple Leaf George Armstrong are (he first of several instructors, to 150 youngsters at the school, ar- ranged by Hockey Canada and a group of local residents.

At address, cock your right knee slightly toward the target. See that it is easily flexed. Now, as you swing back don't let your right knee stiffen. Keep it flexible -and ready for ac- tion. The body will coil around your flexed right knee on the backswing. Then on the downswing it should move toward the target. This helps you release your right side and' will increase your' club- head speed at impact. 54. A t> im NATl, Mm. V. A Big Fight For Foreman NEW YORK (CP) George Foreman, undefeated and 21 years old, would like to use George Chuvalo as a stepphig stone up the world heavyweighl boxing ladder in their 10-round bout next Tuesday at Madison Square Garden- But Chuvalo, 32 and winner of 12 of his last 13 fights, has other plans for the bout, yet another crossroads in the Canadian heavyweight champion's long and varied career. "On the record there's no way he can beat the Toronto fighter said this week while doing road work for the fight. "They figure Foreman, the new is going to walk right through me and it makes me want to fight him right here on the Chuvalo said. Foreman, an American who won the Olympic title at Mexico City in 1968, turned pro about a year ago and has won all 21 of his fights, 18 by knockout. Cubs Meet Milk River In the Lethbridge Hecreation Baseball League the Lethbridge Creighton Cubs will tangle with the Milk Kiver Lions tonight. The game was originally scheduled to be held in Milk River but under certain circum- stances the game will be run off at the Henderson Baseball Park slated for 8 p.m. Chuvalo has a career record of 59 victories, 15 losses and two draws. He has recorded 51 knockouts. His career got its latest boost in Ms last Garden appearance when he scored a seventh-round knockout over Jerry Quarry. Chuvalo has fought all the top fighters around in the last few years. Such boxers as Buster Mathis, Oscar Bonavena and Joe Frazier, the current world heavyweight champion, have fought Chuvalo on their way up. "I hope we can follow in the footsteps of our predecessors, the ones who'fought Mr. Chu- said Dick Sadler- mana- ger and trainer of Foreman. "He was very helpful in their careers-" "There are people around who think George Chuvalo is ready for the the Canadian champion commented. "They thought the same thing before I knocked out Jerry Quarry. "I fooled 'em. They made a mistake putting this kid Fore- man in with me at this stage of his career. But he's young. He'll get a lot more chances." Chuvalo was considered on his way out a -couple of times be- fore. But he rebounded with vic- tories over such fighters as Doug Jones, Manuel Ramos of Mexico and, most recently, Quarry. Madison Square Garden pro- moters think of Foreman as a potential candidate for Frazier's crown early next year if he keeps on winning. Owners Break Talks PHILADELPHIA (AP) Na tional Football League owner broke off contract talks with thi NFL Players Association Tues day night and immediately were charged by the players with bargaining in bad faith an( placing the 1970 prot'essiona football season in jeopardy. Theodore Kheel, labor con- sultant to the owners' negotiat- ing committee, announced the end of the five-day-old negotia- tions conducted under the guid- ance of federal mediators! "For all practical said Kheel, "we are just as far apart as when we first met here Friday." Not so, said Ken Lindquist, labor consultant for the associa- tion. "We feel a settlement is near. We want to remain in session. We regret this recess very much. Without communications there is no way to settlement." It was learned that the own- ers' committee of Tex Schramm, president of Dallas Cowboys; Ralph Wilson, owner of Buffalo Bills, and Rankin Smith, owner of Atlanta Fal- cons, would meet in New York today to formulate a report for the rest of the 26, NFL owners. The committee will meet with the other owners Thursday in Chicago to present suggestions and recommendations for the next step in the dispute. Hours later, in New York, the players association announced a special meeting of all 26 play- er-representatives of the NFL teams had been called for Chi- cago today. "The meeting is for the pur- pose of determining a course of action for the days said in the N.W.T., especially in (lie more-populated southern Mack- enzie district and at Inuvik, near the Arctic coast. The hockey school is divided into two one-week sessions and is combined with a coaches' clinic. A. J. (Buck) Houle, general manager of Hockey Canada, said in an interview there is a crving need for these in the N.W.T. "You can't afford to take Yel- lowknife to the south, so you bring the instructors and school to the territories." Other instructors lined up are Bobby Baun of Detroit Red Wings, George Watson and Billy Harris of the Canadian Nation- als and Gordon Juckes, presi- dent of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association- PAY S20 Youngsters at the school, which consists of two hour's of skating and two hours of lec- tures, are from six northern communities. Most are under 17 years. Tuition is each. Yellowknife midget and senior entries hi the recent Arctic Win- ter Games won gold medals over Yukon and Alaska teams. the NFLPA spokesman, Tom VaiSe. The NFL is running out of time with the first exhibition scheduled for Aug. 7 in Los Angeles. Nine -more are slated for Aug. 8. It will have to cancel the games, play them with rookies and free agents, or perhaps lift the training' camp ban on veteran plaj'ers invoked by the owners until the contract dispute is settled. Kuhn said there had been no discussion of the all-star1 selec- tion results. This year, fans across Canada and the U.S. were allowed to select the all- star teams for both the Ameri- can and National Leagues. "I anticipate the same method next Kuhn said. "At the same time, I anticipate would be a more meaningful word. "We would Eke to see the nominations and printing of the ballots done at a later date so that no one who should be consi- dered is left off the ballot."
