"Sawehuk's record speaks for Francis said, referring to the seven all-star selections and four Vezina Trophies the Winnipeg native earned as the league's top goalie. Sam Pollock, Montreal Cana- diens general manager, said: "Sawchuk was one of the greatest goalies cf all time. I'm just shocked. It's a very tragic thing." NHL president Clarence Campbell also called the death "a terrible tragedy." WAS WEDNESDAY'S CHILD Bob Kinnear, who scouted Sawchuk for Detroit Red Wings, said: "What is that rhyme? Wednesday's child is full of woe? Terry was Iwrn on a Wednesday and he had a lot of troubles but he was the greatest goalkeeper I've ever seen and as far as I was concerned, a wonderful kid." A detective in the Nassau County homicide bureau said Sunday an investigation would begin today into the cause of death. Dr. Elliott Gross, deputy chief medical examiner for New York City, said preliminary findings of an autopsy, which deter- mined that Sawchuk died of a pulmonary embolism-a blood clot on one of the arterial been sent to troit of the NHL where he was rookie of the year in 1950-51.

ETURNED TO WINGS The Leafs left Sawchuk unpro- -cted in the 1967 expansion raft and he went to Los Ange- s Kings for one season before erng traded back to Detroit gain. The Red Wings sent him and Sandy Snow to New "crk in in exchange for arry Jeffrey. When told IK had been ac- uircd by Rangers as back-up oalie to Ed Giacomin, Sawchuk aid: "That's fine, I'm old and m tired. I don't want to an't 1 anymore." Sawchuk had his troubles ven when he was No. 1. He was 36 when Leafs physio- herapist Karl Elieff checked ver the goalie in trailing camp r.d stuck him with the nick- rame aches and pains." Another Leafs spokesman aid: "He played games when e should have been in hospi- al."

[AD BAD BACK In 1956 he underwent surgery o correct ruptured discs in his )ack and aggravated the ccndi- ion the following season, hint- ng he would retire should he rave further trouble. He weighed only about 175 jormds last season, about 25 Jounds lighter than during his )est years, and carried the marks cf about 400 stitches that ;lcsed cuts on his face during lis long career. In his last season he played in only eight games, starting six of them. He had 20 goals scored against him for a 2.91 average. He started one playoff game against Boston in the quarter-fi- nds and gave up all five goals in a 5-3 loss April 9. His final appearance on the ice carne April 14, when he replaced Gia- comin for a 17-second stretch in the third period. The delaying tactic by Francis failed as the Bruins won 3-2. -for a combined total of nine of the 200 laps. The average race speed was 155.749 m.p.h., held down by 27 minutes rmder the caution flag. "I ran a very conservative Unser said. "I ran only as hard as I had to do to keep a cushion over the others." The youngest brother in the celebrated New Mexico clan came close to trouble only when a five-car pileup with 60 miles to go spilled oil and brought out the yellow caution light. "There was oil all over' the he said. "I did slide a little sideways but I didn't have any trouble. "The second time I came through a car was on fire and I simply went by on the infield grass." SEES GLORY AHEAD What Unser didn't say but what he admits privately is that n vear of seasoning under Jones has nrade him one of the world's best drivers, with wealth and glory ahead of him. He hooked up with Jones last year prior to the Memorial Day race, but missed the lineup when he broke his leg while frolicking with a motorcycle in tire garage area.
