WE CAN I ADA LOVEINTWE) AT BINGO, PET iVON SEVEN FOUNDS LOOK'S LIKc A NEW COAT VER Sawchuk Funeral Friday NEW YORK (CP) The I body of Terry Sawchuk, 40- yeaf-old New" York Ranger goalie, was sent Jloixlay (o De- troit as the district attorney in suburban Nassau County opened an investigation into lus death. Funeral services for Sawchuk, for 20 years one of the top goal- tenders in the National Hockey League, will be held Friday. Sawchuk died Sunday in a New York hospital following a mysterious injury. He under- went surgery Saturday after being transferred to the New York hospital from one on Long Island where he had undergone two other operations. He had told authorities he tripped and fell over the knee of a team-mate April 29 while "rough housing" on the lawn of the home the two shared on Long Island. Dr. Elliott Gross, deputy chief medical examiner of New York City who performed an autopsy Sunday, said Monday the exact cause of death was a blood clot that travelled iron: a vein into a pulmonary artery. LIVER INJURED But Dr. Gross also deter- mined there was a or injury to Sawchuk's liver which police said was caused by a blow. "Forty-year-old men don't just get pulmonary Dr. Gross said. "It usually is brought on by other factors." An autopsy report prepared at the hospital following Sawehuk's death had attributed death to a pulmonary blood clot in the lungs. A secondary cause of death was the lacera- tion of Sawchuk's liver during the span of a month. The homicide squad of Nassau County decided to open the in- vestigation after they were given the report of Monday's autopsy by Dr. Gross.

Now he's going to try to get it on hockey's most-coveted trophy again as coach of Boston Bruins. The 42-year-old Johnson, who played 15 seasons in the Na- tional Hockey League before a foot injury ended his career', agreed Monday to a one-year contract to coach the Bruins, defending Stanley Cup champi- ons, in 1970-71. The Bruins, shocked by Harry Sinden's decision to quit and enter private business last month, needed only to dip into their front office to find a suc- cessor. Johnson moved into an executive capacity when his playing career with the Bruins ended in 1965, and has been an assistant to general manager Milt Schmidt for three years. "I'm delighted he accepted the Brains' president Wes- ton W. Adams Jr. said. "Tom's accustomed to being with a win- ner. He played on Stanley Cup teams and he more or less grew up with our Stanley Cup team." TOUGH TO FOLLOW Although many observers feel that Boston's new coach has a tough act to follow after Sinden led the team to its first Stanley Cup in 29 years, Johnson said he considers the job "a great opportunity." "People should be envious of this he said. "This club has a lot of talent." Schmidt said that "close to 20" men were considered before he, Adams and Weston W. Adams Sr., board chairman, "decided we had the man right here in our office who was best suited for the job." "Tom was our unanimous Schmidt said. "He is a good sound hockey man who has been in the organization seven years and knows the club. He also knows the likes and dis- likes of the players both on and off the ice." NEVER BEEN COACH Johnson never has coached at any level and admits his lack of experience may pose "a consid- erable problem for a while." "It's certainly better inherit- ing Stanley Cup champions than a last-place he said. "I think the only way we can top the past season is to win the league championship. And we can do it." In Sinden's fourth season as coach, the Bruins tied Cm'cago in the NHL's East Division this year. Each had 99 points, but "the Black Hawks were awarded first place on the basis of more victories. Boston then blitzed the Hawks in four-straight play- off games. A native of Winnipeg, Johnson grew up in the Toronto Maple Leafs' junior system :n Mani- toba, but was drafted by Mont- real when he was 19. He played 13 seasons with Can.'idiens be- fore being drafted by Boston in 1963. His lop season as a player was in 1958-59, when he won the Norris Trophy as the NHL's top dcfenccnian.

"If the choice is between taking part in international sport and our way of life, which we have developed in this country over generations, then naturally the majority of our people will say that we have no choice in the matter he said. Communist and Afro-Asian nations are blackmailing var- ious countries to refuse to play with South Africa, Vors- ter'said, referring to a South African cricket tour of Britain recently cancelled by the Eng- lish Cricket Council. "They are not motivated by he said. "What they really want to do is to exert pressure on us through sport." Vorster dispelled any re- maining hope that some mea- sure of multirp'ialism could be brought about in South African sport to save its par- ticipation in world sports events. On Sunday, Alf Chalmers, South African Lawn Tennis Union president, had called for a conference of sport ad- ministrators of all races to discuss integration, warning that "we will not be able to save anything" if the national outlook on sport is not broadened.

QUINELLA: Original Owners Take Over SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Seals Ltd., original ovraer of Oakland Seals, has regained control of the National Hockey League team. Superior Court Judge Robert Sehnacke said Monday that Trans-National Communications Inc., which owns Boston Celtics, of the National Basketball Asso- ciation defaulted on terms of its agreement to buy the three- year-old hockey club from Seals Ltd. last year. He adjourned a week-old trial over the club's ownership until June 9, when Seals Ltd., headed by Barry Van Gerbig, will pro- pose selling the club for to Charles 0. Finley, owner of baseball's Oakland A t h 1 e t i c s of the American League. Sehnacke said he will consider whether the sale is "conducted in a commercially reasonable manner." He said he will weigh any other offers before Finley's offer deadline of June 30. After Trans-National rested its case Monday, Seals Ltd., moved successfully for a judg- ment in its favor on grounds Trans-National had failed to prove no default on loan agree- ments of with the Wells Fargo Bank, with Seals Ltd., with Hockey Inves- tors and Nrith Mel Swig. After the ruling, Frank Tatum Jr., attorney for Seals Ltd., tes- tified that two attempted sales of the club in 1M7 and 1908 had been unsuccessful and that the price to Finley is fair and is the only offer. The Seals' executive vice- president, Bill Torrcy, said he, general manager Frank Seiko Jr. and coach Fred Glover still will leave for Montreal next weekend for the annual NHL draft, meetings.
