Chamberlain's field goal per- centage of .727 during the 1972- 73 campaign marked the first time an NBA player has hit more than 70 per cent of his shots for an entire season. It was ninth time in his 14-year NBA career that the veteran centre had topped the league in two-pointer accuracy. OTHER CREDITS Among Chamberlain's other marks, mostly extensions of his own career records, were points scored. minutes played. field goals played and a 30.1 points a game aver- age. In addition, the 36-year-old giant led the NBA in rebounds for the llth time. Nate Archibald of Kansas Kings set three season records during the cam- assists, 14 straight games with 10 or more assists and 56 games with 10 assists or better. Milwaukee Bucks' Oscar Robertson added a trio of ca- reer free throws made, assists and a per-game assist average of 9.7. .Jerry West of the Lakers ecl- ipsed six all-time playoff record 4.453 points socred, a scoring average of 29.3. 1.620 field goals made, 451 shots attempted, free throws made and 9fi9 assists. At the negative end of the record iisL, Philadelphia's '7Sers established four marks for in- losses, a won-lost percentage of .110, finishing 59 games behind a division cham- pion and losing 20 straight games. By THE CANADIAN PRESS Bernie Parent, first of the es- t a b 1 i s h e d National Hockey League stars to jump to the rebel World Hockey Association a year ago, returned to the old league Friday. Philadelphia Flyers disclosed they had exercised their option with Toronto Maple Leafs and signed the 28-year-old goalten- der to a multi-year contract. Parent, who broke into the NHL with Boston Bruins in 1965 before joining the Flyers in the 1967 expansion draft, was traded to the Leafs midway in the 1970-71 season. His move to the fledgling WHA for a reported started an exodus of other es- tablished NHL players who were wooed by heretofore un- heard of salaries and the secur- ity of multi-year contracts. Philadelphia, where Parent played last season with the WHA' Blazers, reacquired rights to the goaltender from Toronto in a recent transaction that gave the Leafs a first-round amateur draft choice and a player to be named later. Parent's signing was among the more note able moves made in pro hockey during the day. LAYCOE NOW GM In other NHL transactions, Vancouver Canucks announced that Hal Laycoe, who assumed managerial duties during the 1972-73 season when Bud Poile was forced to resign for health reasons, has been signed to a multi-year contract as general manager. And Buffalo Sabres signed Fred Hunt to be as- sistant to general manager j Punch Imlach as well, as handle I the GM duties with Cincinnati S w o r d s American Hockey League champions. The WHA. meanwhile, had an active day in the Oilers announced a name change (to Edmonton Oilers from Alberta Oilers) and a new coach, Brian Shaw, and To- the Toros signed two of their top amateur draft picks and acquired Brit Selby in a trade with New England Wha- lers. Bill Hunter, Oilers' vice-presi- dent and general manager, said the name change was made to end "once and for all" specula- tion that the team would move to Calgary, move to any other centre or play a split schedule between Edmonton and Cal- gary. The Toros' rookie signees were Pat Hickey and Gord Tit- comb, both from the Ontario Hockey Association Junior A Series. Hickey, of Brantford, played with Hamilton Red Wings, while Titcomb, whose off-season home is in Dalhousie, N.B., was with St. Catharines Black Hawks. The Toronto team got Selby, former NHL rookie award win- ner with the Leafs, in a straight trade for Bob Charlebois, 29, of Cornwall, Ont. Selby, a 28-year-old winger from Kingston, also had stints with Philadelphia and St. Louis Blues of the NHL before jumping to the WHA's Quebec Les Nordiques who traded him to the Whalers.

Parent, whose wife comes from near Philadelphia, has made it clear in the past he prefers the Pennsylvania city and when the Blazers' franchise was shifted to Vancouver recently it was on the condition the talented young goalie was not included in the package. Parent raUied from a poor start to put the Blazers in the playoffs. But after the first post-season game with Cleve- land Crusaders, he claimed the Philadelphia club was not living up to its end of the bargain and jumped the team. Parent's agent, Philadelphia lawyer Howard Casper, rea- soned the goaltender was a free agent and began talks with the Flyers. "I can now state that Bernie Parent will be playing for the Flyers next Allen said. We do make the best exhaust systems around MINUTE MUFFLER INSTALLATIONS 308 St. S.

"This time I'm a little more relaxed, I'm more confident of what, I can do." Fezler. the tearful victim of a loss to Lee Trevino in Florida early this season, ripped five strikes off par with a 65 Friday and bolted into sole control of the lead in the event. His 36-hole total of 132 was eight-under-par for two rounds the Firestone Country Club ccurse, whose layout makes it one of the longest, toughest courses the touring pros play. Defending titleholder Bert Yancey blazed over the back nine in seven under par 28 and moved into second with a 65 for 13fi. It was the lowest nine-hole sccrc on the pro tour since 1971' and only one stroke off the modern record of 27, set in 1955 by Mike Souchak. U.S. Open champion Johnny Miller, Tom Shaw and Austral- ian Bruce Crampton followed at 137. Miller, who shared the lead at 67 with Fezier at the end of the first round, went to a 70. Crampton, winner of three titles already this season, had a 67 and Shaw a fiS.
