Wayne Harris retires CALGARY (CP) Wayne Harris, perennial Western Foot- ball Conference all-star, ended speculation on his retirement plans by making it official at a news conference called Thurs- day by Calgary Stampeders. The 35-year-old middle line- backer, lineman of the year in the Canadian Football League four of his 12 years with the Stamps, suffered a back injury late in the 1972 season. Team physicians advised him not to play again. "Harris inspired his team by his desire and performance and it will be diTficuli, if not impos- sible, to replace Rogers Lehew, Calgary general man- ager, said. "He is the best foot- ball player I ever have been as- sociated with in my 35 years in football, here or in the United States." A diminutive six-footer over- looked in the United States col- lege draft despite twice being selected an ail-American line- backer at Arkansas, Harris be- came a legend in his time in ;he CFL while being named to the WFC all-star team 11 straight seasons. He joined the Stampeders in 1960 where his ability to read xpposing offences quickly estab- ished him as one of the all-time greats in the CFL. Harris said he had no imme- diate plans outside football, adding that "I may become in- volved with younger players, wssibly at the bantam level, ater on but I haven't given the matter much thought" Life threatened?

WASHINGTON (AP) The National Football League Play- e r s Association (NFLPA) termed outrageous a congress- man's suggestion that profes- sional athletes undergo urine tests to determine whether they have been using drugs illegally. The comment came Thursday after it was disclosed that the House of Representatives com- merce mittee, investigation subcom- headed by Democrat Harley Staggers, recommended to the NFL that such a program be initiated. "It is our position that the suggestion of urine analysis for professional athletes is an abso- lute said Ed Garvey, NFLPA executive-director. "No responsible body has even defined the problem, and yet everyone seems to be coni- ng up with solutions. We have co-operated fully with Stag- gers's committee over the past year and will continue to work with them and the league to work out a program to elimi- nate a problem, if in fact it does exist." The New York Times re- ported Tuesday that at least our professional football play- ers were under investigation for trafficking in illegal drugs. "A basic tenet of our society s that people are innocent until there is some proof of Garvey said. "To ingle out professional athletes with unsupported of this type is simply irrespons- ible." He also said NFL commis- sioner Pete Rozelle has been in- vited to meet with player repre- sentative July 23 in Chicago. Garvey said Rozel'e would be asked at that time to explain drug program he planned to present to team owners for ap- proval July 26. Rozelle announced Wednesday he would recommend to the owners additional security guidelines, which he said are "going to go further than we have in the past DETAILS WITHHELD He declined to make them public until after the meeting. The Staggers committee also recommended that the NFL re- quire- team to tell the league of- fice oi any suspected drug abuse by players; teams to submit to the NFL office copies of bills for all prescribed drugs. players to tell the team physician of any medication used; penalties for drug use such as fines, suspension and banning for life, if war- ranted. More sport on page 16 TORONTO (CP) No hard and fast rules have been laid down by the Canadian Football League dealing with player per- sonnel caught trafficking in or using drugs, CFL commissioner J. G (Jake) Gaudaur said Thursday. He was commenting on a re- port from Washington that a federal government investiga- tion in the United States has recommended the National Football League use a spot check urine analysis to deter- mine if players use narcotics. The report said the investiga- tion showed drug use "exists, in varying degrees, in all sports." Atlhough the findings don't apply to the CFL, by reason of "our geographical location being entirely within Gaudaur said the league had "been aware for some time of the need to be alert to the drug issue." He said the CFL has a liaison with police authorities at the Cincinnati is now out CINCINNATI (AP) A Cin- cinnati sports group announced Thursday it" was abandoning plans to bring professional hockey and basketball to Cin- cinnati in view of a collapse of a financial agreement for a pro- possd riverfront sports arena.

Earlier in the week, at Mon- treal, Clarence Campbell said during National Hockey League meetings that his league will in- stigate next year its own pro- gram for controlling drugs ad- ministered to athletes. The program will include its own audit procedures in which each club will be responsible for maintaining "a running au- dit of all drugs administered by trainers and team doctors Campbell said the league did not mean to imply any drug abuses in the NHL, simply that it was a precautionary meas- ure. A spokesman for the Toronto- based Toros of the World Hockey Association said the league has not issued any direc- tive concerning application of drugs in the league, but sug- gested that WHA president, Gary Davidson, would probably have something to say on the subject at the next league meet- ings in August.
