(AP) Arnold Palmer recovered from a triple-bogey eight on the first hole, but his four- under-par 68 fell one stroke short of catching three men who tied for the first round lead Thursday in the Citrus Open golf tournament. Jack Ewing, a non-winner in six years on the tour, had one of the day's three holes in one and was tied for the top at 67 with Jerry Heard and Richard Crawford. Palmer, who hasn't won in more than a year, was tied with Andy North, Jim Colbert and Leonard Thompson, winner of the Jackie Gleason tournament last Sunday. Ben Kern of Toronto was in another group at 69, two strokes off the pace and three under par on the Rio Pinar Country Club Course. Kern shot nines of 33 and 36. Lee Trevino had a 71 in the mild, cloudy weather and was tied with defending champion Buddy Allin. Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Johnny Miller are not competing in this event that offers a first prize. "I was upset, to say the least." Palmer said of the eight that led his card. "I decided I was either gonna play, or get up and get out." He responded to the adversity by playing one string of 13 holes eight under par, including two eagles. Heard didn't have a bogey in his solid effort. Crawford used some remarkable putting to get his share of the lead. He made two putts of about 30 feet, two more from about 20 and another of 15 feet and used only 26 strokes on the greens. Ewing's ace on the 165-yard 12th hole was the first of his career. He used a six iron. The ball hit about 18 feet in front of the cup, hit the flagstick and Forry fined, suspended SEATLE (AP) The Western Hockey League suspended Thursday Denver Spurs hockey player Connie Forey for the remainder of the current season and all of the next one for attacking a referee. Forey was also fined Forey hit referee Malcolm Ashford several times during a game with Seatle Totems here Feb. 21. Ashford's nose was broken. WHL president William H. MacFarland suspended Forey until the conclusion of the 1974-75 regular season and playoffs. MacFarland said a condition of Forey's reinstatement for the 1975-76 season "is payment of the official in the sum of any judg- ment obtained by the official should he pursue civil litigation or the sum of whichever is greater." Forey may appeal to the board of governors of the league or seek independent arbitration through the Professional Hockey Players' Association agreement, MacFarland said. dropped down, hanging on the lip for a moment before drop- ping in. Curtis Sifford also had a hole in one, on the 16th hole, and Jim Simons aced the fourth. Wilk Homenuik of Winnipeg was five strokes off the pace with a Native Sons win opener The Lethbridge Native Sons travelled to Brooks and walked away with a big 9-5 victory over the Tubers in a Central Alberta Junior Hockey League semi final playoff game Wednesday night. The hard fought win gives the Sons a one-game lead in their best of three semi- final series which continues in Lethbridge this weekend. Victory didn't come easy to the locals who led 3-1 after the opening period, but only 4-3 by the end of the second. A third period surge was the only thing that gave the Sons the win. Reg Osmond paced the locals' assault with a pair of goals while singles came off the sticks of Torn Ellis, Greg Kveder, Joe Meli, Glen Scheibner, Myles Fox, Rod Pocza and Gary Craik. Kevin Virostek replied twice for the Tubers, who picked up six of 13 minor penalties called during the three periods of play.

Raise for Rozelle, but less power now MIAMI BEACH (AP) Pete Rozelle says he won't be overly concerned if he loses a bit of his absolute authority as commissioner of the National Football League in the upcoming players' contract talks. Rozelle's old 10-year contract, running through 1978, was torn up by the league's 26 club owners and a 10-year pact, 'good through 1982. was substituted with a salary which rose to a reported from a year. The implication was the owners are very happy with their powerful commissioner and won't mind if the NFL Players Association makes note of that fact when negotiations begin March 16 in Washington. But, as the owners' four-day meetings ended Thursday, Ro- zelle was asked if the owners might be willing to deal away a bit of his power instead of their own money to the players to avoid a strike. FREEDOM ISSUES It is expected the so-called freedom issues will be empha- sized by the players. One rule in contention says a team that signs a player who has played out his option must adequately compensate the man's former team. The players say the rule in- hibits their movement. It is expected the players will demand that they be replaced by an outside arbitrator in non-injury grievances. Rozelle wouldn't say whether he believed the owners would permit the players to chip away at his power, but he insisted: "I don't have an ego thing about authority. If changes are made... I'll work within the framework. I'm only concerned about what might hurt the sport." And a strike, he said, would hurt it. Four years ago. during the last contract talks, (here was a brief players called it a lockout by the wiped put the first few weeks of training camp. But the damage which might result, Rozelle said, could be indicated by what happened two years ago when major league baseball players struck, cutting into the opening weeks of the season. "Both owners and the out, along with the he said. "What happened is that the public and media sort of said 'A fie on both yourjiouses' to the owners and players. Very simply, the strike was destructive. Everybody got hurt, one way or another." Ultimately, Rozelle said, money may prevent many players from using the threat of a boycott of exhibition games as a lever for getting a better contract. The per-game salary and the per diem expense pay -gives a five-year veteran about a or more for the pre-season games. The major results of the meetings were to assure New Orleans that it stili has next January's Super Bowl, whether it is played in a new Louisiana Superdome or in Tulane Stadium, and to tell Honolulu, Memphis, Seattle, Phoenix and Tampa, Fla., that they are the only remaining candidates for expansion franchises and that two or perhaps four of them might be invited into the league by the end of April for the 1975 season. Minor hockey The visiting Taber Spud Kings grabbed a commanding three-goal lead in their provincial midget "B" zone playoff finals by scoring a 6-3 victory over the Lethbridge Colts at Henderson Wednesday night.

John Kliener, Darrell Oshiro, Darryl Shimbashi, Robby Schaafsma. David Baraldi and Richard Kurio tallied a goal each in the Kings' win while Rick McRoberts. Tom Block and Leroy Pavan replied for the Colts. Taber also picked up nine minor penalties along with two 10-minute misconducts while the Colts were assessed 17 minor infractions, a major and a 10 minute misconduct penalty. Meanwhile the Lethbridge Labor Club Bees will hit the playoff trail at home this weekend.

Lyle leads holdout parade THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Starting today any unsigned baseball player will be consid- ered late for his job.
