(AP) The World Hockey Association is taking a million airplane ride Tuesday in two countries in hones of bringing National Hockey League superstar Bobby Hull to Winnipeg Jets and add- ing credibility to its fledgling organization. The WHA, gearing for its first season in October, has sched- uled news conferences in St. Paul and Winnipeg, hoping to announce the signing of the 33- Winning driver fooled himself Extra clubs costly Elliott's bag full ROSEMERE, Que. (CP) Greg Pitzer, a personable 25- year-old pro from Los Angeles, and Canadian veteran Moe Nor- man of Gilford, Ont., held a one-stroke lead going into to- day's final round of the 54-hole, Quebec open golf cham- pionship. And young Jolui Elliott ol Fort Lauderdale, Fla., would have shared the lead with Pitzer and Norman had ha taken the precaution to count the number of clubs he carried in his bag. The omission cost Elliott four penalty strokes, a share of first place and as he expressed it first-place prize money.

HORT OF RECORD Norman's second-round score one stroke off the competi- ve course record of 65 sel by rank Whibley of Toronto in 964, and twice equalled by host ro Adrien Bigras In 1989. The second round had origl- ally been scheduled for com- letion Saturday, but it was riped out by torrential rain and ostponed to Sunday wilh 60 per cent of the field of 158 pros and .mateurs still on the course. EDMONTON (CP) Rie Forrest exceeded his own ex- pectations Sunday when he won the second race of the 1972 Player's Challenge series and moved into contention for the Canadian Formula B driving championsliip. Forrest, a 24-year-old Edmon- ton commerce student, drove flawlessly in his March 722 on the i 1 e International Speedway circuit which had been made slippery by light rain just before race time. His elapsed time for tlie 40 laps was one hour six minutes 17.3 seconds for a race average oi about 91 miles an outstanding performance from an engine displacing cubic centimetres. The fastest lap, however, was posted by Brian Robertson of Ottawa, winner of the first race of the series last month at San- air, Que. Robertson, in a Chev- ron 20, was clocked at .1 seconds faster than the previous Formula B record set by Jacques Couture of Montreal in qualifying lap for the 1971 race. Robertson, who finished 10.4 seconds behind Forrest in sec- ond place, retained his hold on first place in series standings With 54 points, he is well ahear of runner-up Al Justason of To- ronto, who has 32. Forrest is third with 30. Tlurd in Sunday's race was John Powell of Ottawa in a Chevron 18.16.5 seconds back o Forrest. Craig Hill of London Ont., was fourth in a Lotus 69B trailing by and Ian Coris tine of Montreal was fifth in a March 722, trailing the winner by Maurice McCaig of Calgary tore the race started Sunday as one of the factors behind jrresls wui. He was the only driver with 11' rain .tires on his car, ena- hng him to open a 25-second ad on Hill, the other driver al e front of the 23-car starling id, by about the loth lap. However, as the track began dry out, the rain tires started earing out quickly and Forrest arted to lose some adhesion on irners. "I think they were just about he said afterward. They were so hot near the id; they were pretty well crubbed off." Added to his difficulties was IB fact the tires were only 10- iches wide and liis pit crew ad to stretch and over-inflate year-old Golden Jet who is the second leading all-time goal scorer in NHL Mstory. The chain of events is to begin late tonight when, or if, Hull boards a commercial Ilighl from Calgary to Winnipeg, from where he will take a chartered flight to St. Paul. After a police-escorted motor- cade through St. Paul, VVIIA of- ficials hope to usher Hull into a a.m. MDT news confer- ence. Gary L. Davidson, WHA pres- ident, is to present Hull, whose contract with the NHL Chicago Black Hawks expired at the end of the 1971-72 season, wilh a cheque for million. Then it's back aboard the air- plane for a return trip to Wini- peg, where a second entourage of officials be escorted to keep them on the hem to heels. The only major accident of le race was to David Mc- onnel's GRD Special on the rst lap. Although the Dorval, [ue., driver was uninjured, he ?as unable to re-enter the race. Next race in the series Is at ,'estwood circuit near Vancou- er, July 9. First victory the city's busiest intersection- Portage and Main a second ceremonial signing. This one is for a agreement with Winnipeg Jets to serve as player and coach. THINK OFFER REAL Tlie Black Hawks apparently think the WHA offer is for real. "I think that he'll probably sign with the other Wiffiam W. Wirtz, president oi the Black Hawks said in today's editions of the Chicago Tribune. "We haven't had any indica- tion thai he won't. And aren't sitting on anything that we'll pull at the last minute. We've made our offer. We have no hostility whatsoever toward Bobby. If the other league doesn't produce the money, our offer stands." Wirtz, while making no men- lion of a possible lawsuit, did say "anti-trust laws won't allow us to pool money liie they've done." "I have my doubts whether that's legal." But a WHA spokesman said Sunday night there was no pool- ing arrangements involved and that any money paid by tho leagne to Hull was coming oui of the WHA treasury. Hull became entangled In a contract dispute with Black Hawks owners four years ago for a reported contract, which expired this year. If Hull does sign, he will be- come the first superstar to jump to the WHA.
