"Everyone emulates everyone Campbell said Monday, "and the NHL is not responsible for children who watch fights on television, then attempt to carry that type of play into their own games." He said fighting is the "best safety valve in al- lowes players to let off steam before they resort to more se- vere tactics. For that reason, Campbell ranked fighting fourth as the worst offences in hockey, citing kicking, spearing and butt-ending as the more "disgusting" practices. International hockey, because it does not allow fighting, "produces one of the most violent games you can ask for. "I'd rather have the rat-a- tattat of punching than some of the things that go on in international hockey." MUST SELL TICKETS He said the role of the NHL is to conduct hockey "in a manner that will be conducive to support at the box office." William McMurtry, a Toronto lawyer acting as commissioner of the inquiry, said he was told by three general managers, who did not want to be named, that the NHL was attempting to "sell hockey" without regard to the quality of play. Campbell said if the general managers he mentioned ''won't stand up and be then their opinion must be an "absurd hypothesis." Replying to McMurtry's statement that some teams pursue the matter of fighting more than others, Campbell said Philadelphia teem most often accused for using violent Mohawks lose 18-14 Calgary Acadia got four goals from Barry Kuryk as they outlasted Lethbridge Mohawks 18-14 in Lacrosse League action. Wayne Hunt, with five and Ed Moskulak with three aided in the Calgary victory. Paul Byrne was outstanding for the Mohawks as he scored five times. Ken Hall and Tony Simioni added three apiece while Morgan Monroe notched a pair. Darryl McLellan completed the scoring with a sola marker.- Mohawks will see action this Saturday afternoon at two o'clock at Adams Ice Centre. AS DROP BOURQUE OAKLAND (AP) -Oakland As of baseball's American League removed infielder Da! Maxville from the disabled list Sunday, sending first baseman Pat Bourque to their Tucson farm team in the Pacific Coast League to make room for him. the Stanley Cup with their skill. McMurtry said there were certain players on NHL teams who have admitted they are used solely as fighters. "I don't think there are any such players in the Campbell said, "and I just don't believe they were correctly quoted." When McMurtry mentioned that a fight in the Stanley Cup playoffs might have been the turning point in the series, Campbell said McMurtry was being unfair. "I thought we were trying to find out about violence in amateur Campbell said. "It looks as though you have already made up your mind." A replay of a Montreal-New York game last season was shown to inquiry members, a game in which the Canadiens' Yvon Cournoyer was knocked down by a single punch from the Rangers' Ron Harris. McMurtry said Harris made a deliberate attempt to hurt or disable Cournoyer with his stick, and that Harris' sub- sequent double minor penalty for roughing and high sticking wasn't severe enough. Campbell said the NHL will introduce a new rule next sea- son, giving the team, not the player, an additional penalty Stretch drive The Spring Race Meet opened Monday at Whoop-up Downs, see story, results and Wednesday's selections on page 26. IOC chairman worried about '76 preparations LAUSANNE (CP) Lord Killanin, president of the International Olympic Committee said Monday he will be "very worried" if questions about Montreal's preparations for the 1976 Games are not an- swered by this fall. However, speaking to reporters after a three-day meeting of the IOC's executive board he made no comment on the state of preparations in Montreal. Montreal Mayor Jean Drap- eau reported at the meeting on the "success of the lottery and sale of coins" to finance the 1976 Games. Lord Killanin said that Montreal organizers are readying a report for mid- June on the Olympic village, preparations of the press centre, the venue for several events and the sale of tickets. That report, he said, "hopes to have the answers to a lot of questions." "I would be very worried if these points were not finalized and reported on in fall, by the time the Olympic congress meets in Vienna next October." Right now it is hard to make a comparison between the preparations at Montreal and those for the 1972 Games at Munich because many facilities that Munich lacked already exist in Montreal. Lord Kiilanin said the executive board had slightly redrafted its proposed new eligibility rule on amateurism, in the light of suggestions from inter- national sports federations and national Olympic committees. The international sports fed- erations recommended that the IOC should cut out the from its draft rule and replace them with guidelines. The draft is aimed at more clearly defining amateurism, and banning professionals and advertising from the Olympics. The proposed bylaws stipulate that a competitor must not allow his name to be used for advertising, unless a national federation enters into a contract. They also allow a competitor to be an elementary teacher of sports, and permit compensation to competitors for wages lost in training and competition. Graham tied for lead WHITBY, Ont. (CP) Two amateurs and a professional were tied for the lead Monday with par 72s after the first round of the Professional Golfers' Association tournament players' school competition. Amateurs Michael Daly of Rawdon. Que., and Don Gra- ham of Midnapore. Alta.. along with 20-year-old pro Mark Ludeman of Burnaby. B.C., held one-stroke leads over four others in the 72-hole tournament. Daly was three under par after 14 holes on the Thunderbird Golf and Country Club course, but bogeyed three of his last four holes. Ludeman had an eagle three on the par-five first hole. At 73 were amateurs Fred Cotton and Norman Jarvis. both of Vancouver, and Dave Barr of Kelowna, B.C., Professional Greg Pidlaski, formerly of Winnipeg and now of Stouffville, Ont., also had a 73. Boston could be victimized by flagrant violation of rules BOSTON API A couple of years ago Boston Red Sox iost the American League East baseball championship by one half game, playing one game less than Detroit Tigers in a strike delayed season. The Red Sox could be victimized again all because of flagrant violation of the major league rules. The infraction was overlooked by everybody, including the umpires, in a 13 inning, 5-4 loss lo Minnesota Twins last Wednesday night. With runners on first and third and one out in the 13th, lichl hitting Jerry Terrell of the Twins stepped into the baiter's box. Boston veteran Diego Segui was set to pitch, loeing the mound. Suddenly. Terrell moved around in Uie box. He scooped up a handful of dirt without leaving the designated area. Segui. caught off guard, broke his hands from a set position before taking his foot off the rubber. The result: A balk bringing home the winning run II was a bush trick, which TerreJl later admitted he first pulled off years ago as a high school player in Minnesota However, it worked because neither the Red Sox nor the umpires knew the rule book. The rule book comes across hard and strong. On page 29. under rule 4.06a, Item 3. it states no manager, player. substitute, coach, trainer or batboy shall at any time: "Call 'time" or employ any other word or phrase or commit any act while the ball is alive and in play for the obvious purpose of Irving to make the pitcher commit a balk." Segui was amazed when first base umpire Bill Mailer called the balk. Plate umpire Merle Anthony did not make it, Haller appeared correct, until someone finally found rale 4.W. "1 knew it was in there somewhere, but I just didn't know it at the time." Boston manager Darrell Johnson said. 'From now on. though, you can bet I'll go out there with the book and stay all day until I find the correct rule to fit any situation." Johnson agreed that Segui had balked, but also agreed that probably nothing can be done because he did not lodge an official protest before the next pitch was thrown to Terrell another baseball quirk in the rules. Dick Butler, the American League's supervisor of umpires, said there is no way the umps can determine intent on the part of a player. But. Terrell admitted later what he had done after conferring in the dugout with Minnesota manager Frank Quilici. when the penalized player does not go directly to the penalty box. "What you will see next year is five players pushing the penalized player to the box, instead of a Campbell said. The inquiry was called by Rene Brunelle, Ontario minister of community and social services following the first game of the Ontario Hockey Association Junior B final between Hamilton and Bramalea at North York Centennial Arena. Bramalea won the 3-2 game in which 189 minutes in penal- ties were called. The following day, Bramalea coach Richard Hway resigned and team president Gerry Henderson pulled his club out of the series, saying he feared for the safety of the players if the team went to Hamilton for the second game. Pros to compete TORONTO (CP) Profes- sional hockey players from Canada may play in world hockey competition as early as 1977, Gordon Juckes, executive director of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association said Monday. Juckes made his announce- ment following a meeting be- tween officials of six coun- the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, Sweden, Finland and the United States. "Canadian pro hockey players will be registered with the CAHA as non- professionals for the purposes of world cup and international tournament said Juckes. Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League, said his teams would co-operate in allowing players to compete at the international level pro- viding dates could be worked out. The International Ice Hockey Federation's (IIHF) constitution says players representing their country must be registered with that country's national amateur hockey body. Campbell cited the operation of the London, England, Lions' hockey club in 1973-74 as a typical example as to how the system might work. "The London Lions were a non-amateur team made of players from the NHL's Detroit Red Wings Jack watches Johnny Miller drives in Monday's Round pions.
