Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Tuctdoy, lunt 17, THE LETHIRIDGE HERALD 9 The closer he gets, the further it seems "NO" THREE WAYS-Hamming it up the camera, Chicago BlackHawks star Bobby Hull remained mum Monday night on reported contract he is expected to sign with Winnipeg Jels of the World Hockey Association. He said in Edmonton during an interview he Is flying to Tor- onto Tuesday to do a commercial and "if I'm stopped in Winnipeg, they won't have to twist my arm." (CP Wirephoto) Hull's itiie and children in Minnesota Upstart WHA about to complete coup? ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The World Hockey Association has confidently predicted it will complete the biggest coup of its young life today by signing rival National Hockey League super- star Bobby Hull away from the Chicago Black Hawks. It appeared the WHA was going to be correct. Hull's wife and children arrived in Minne- sota late Monday. The WHA and Winnipeg Jels called news conferences this morning in St. Paul and this afternoon In Winnipeg to sign Hull to a multi-year million contract. "Everything is as pre- said Ed Fitkln, assist- ant to WHA president Gary L. Davidson. "People will realize that we are here to stay." Davidson left Ms Santa Ana, Calif., offices late Monday with a cashier's cheque for million to present to Hull at an 11 a.m EOT news conference hi St Paul. Hull and WHA officials were to arrive at the news conference In a Rolls Royce es- corted by police. FLY TO WINNIPEG After the news conference, tha WHA party was to board u chartered flight to Winnipeg, where a second ceremonial signing would be held at the intersection of Portage and Main streets about p.m. MDT.. This signing would give Hull a million contract to serve as player-coach of the Jels. Hull, 83-year-old left winger ranks as the second-leading scorer in NHL history wilh regular season career go second only to Gordie Howe's 786. Wearing the Black Hawks sweater for 15 seasons, Hul scored more than 60 goals five different years. Some of the other establlshelow in the solar plexus area. It was a fair blow." Bedlam erupted after tha light ended, with Duran's sup- porters among the who laid to attend the bout eaping about, waving Panama- nian flags and attempting to climb into the ring. FELT PAIN "I just felt a terrific pain be- tween my Buchanan said later after he had showered and changed into street clothes. helped me to my cor- ner and then the referee said I couldn't come out. I told him 1 could keep boxing but he said, 'You're not coming out'.'1 Duran, a 2-1 underdog who recorded his 25th. knockout in winning all of his 29 starts, claimed he struck Buchanan with a "good right hand to the stomach. A lot of boxers try to make you think they were hil low because they are losing. J won it legally." The brutal, aggressive, swarming onslaught of Duran gave liim a wide edge on tho officials' cards, LoBianco gave Duran eight of the first 12 rounds, tabbed three for Bu chanan and scored one even Judge Bill Recht had it 9-2-1 for Duran and Judge Jack Gordon had the winner in front 8-3-1 The Associated Press had Duran ahead 9-3. Duran caught the 27-year-old Scot, who won the crown from Ismael Laguna of Panama 1970, apparently off balance after only 15 seconds of the firs round and knocked him down Buchanan immediately arose and took a mandatory eigh1 count. "He hit me on the arm when was off said Bu chanan, who suffered his secom loss against 43 triumphs. participate in a golf tourna- ment, said Blazer officials are negotiating with "a couple of outstanding members of the Chicago Black Hawks." "Once Winnipeg signs Bobby, there will be other players said McKenzie. The Hull signing would give flie WHA an immediate strong foundation. Compar- lively, the old American Foot- ball League and the American Basketball Association had a slower beginning before they caught on. By THE ASSOCIATED PIIESS Bill Slayback is on a baseball treadmill. He keeps pitching more no-hit innings but keeps 'etting farther away from a no- litter. Recalled from Toledo by- Detroit Tigers on jack hurled seven hitless in- nings against New York Yan- kees in his first major-league appearance, but then needed ninth-inning help for a 4-3 vic- tory over the Yankees. Johnny Callison's leadoff sin- jle in the eighth left Slayback ;wo innings short of a pitcher's dream. But he was even closer a no-Mller in his last Interna- tional League start when he fell two outs slwrt in a seven-inning game against Charleston. Elsewhere in the American League Monday kee Brewers shut out Baltimore Orioles 3-0, Cleveland Indians dropped Boston Ked Sox 7-3, Minnesota Twins downed Cali- fornia Angels 7-4, Kansas City Royals defeated Chicago While Sox 4-1, and Oakland Athletics blanked Texas Hangers 3-0. Slayback, a strapping right- hander, was trying to become the first pitcher in modern- base- ball history to hurl a no-hitler in his first major-league appear- ance. It was like something right out of Hollywood, which is where Slayback was born. But Callison broke up that dream and before he was through, Slayback needed ninth-inning help from Fred Scherman and Chuck Seelbach to cut short a three-run Yankee rally. Slayback, who was 7-4 wilh a 2.43 earned run average at To- ledo in 88 2-3 innings, to Tiger manager Billy Martin when he reached the ball park. "I met Billy when I firsl came the youngster said "1 was walking around on i cloud. He welcomed me an< said, 'just throw strikes.' Slayback did more than that. He 'hrottled the Yankees on an assortment of pilches that kept hem off-balance until tha ighth when Callison opened vith his hit. Mickey Stanley's bases-loaded iingle drove in three rune in the sixth inning and Slayback car- ried a 4-0 cushion into the ninth. He needed all of It as the Yan- kees knocked him out and ral- lied for three runs. But the out- burst fell short and the rookie had his victory, just the way Hollywood would have written Torre claims still in slump By THE ASSOCIATED FRESS You can Tone's In slump because he hit home run Monday night. Balor Moore, Montreal rookie who was the victim of Torre's tliree-run first-inning shot in St. Loul1! Cardinals' 4-3 baseball victory over the Expos, might not believe that, Torre Insists it's true. but "Matty Alou had it right when he said you can always tell when I'm in a slump because I hit home Torre ex- plained. "You can tell by where I Mt the ball. When I'm in the groove, I hit a lot to right- centre." Torre, a right-handed batter, pulled his home run off the con- crete facade ut the left field stands following scratch bits by Ted Sizemore and Alou. Lou Brock doubled home what proved to be the winning run in the second inning when Mont- real centre fielder Boots Pay misjudged his lirw drive. That was all Bob Gibson needed us be stretched both his own winning streak and that of the Cards to six games. He was nicked for a first-inning run thanks to two St. Louis errors and yielded a two-run double to Ron Fairly In the third, but owed only two more hits thi rest of the way. Torre, the National League's 1971 balling champ with a ,363 mark, saw his average drop 65 points to .309 in the last month. But he gave a hint that he may be coming out of it when he singled in the third inning to right field.
