Bruins continue assault Very few marks are left to break MONTREAL (CP) - Boston Bruins, in quest of their first regular - season championship since 1940-41, have already broken several National Hockey League records and appear well on their way to setting a few more. ' By this time next week, the Bruins could be the winningest and highest-scoring team in NHL history. Even more surprising is the fact that the Bruins have set many records, and will probably set more in fewer than 70 games, which was the length of the schedule for the 18 seasons prior to NHL expansion to 12 teams this season and each team plays 78 games. The Bruins have already set these marks: most scoring points-#30, most assists-529, most short-handed goals in one season-20, fastest three goals in a game-20 seconds, most points by a line-273 (Phil Es-posito, 117; Ken Hodge, 90; Wayne Cashman, 66), most goals by a centre-Phil Esposito 52, most shots on goal by an individual in a season-425 by Phil Esposito (prior to Sunday's game against Toronto), most 20-or-more-goal scorers-eight, most three-goal games in a sea- son (modern era)-five by Esposito. Other records likely to topple to Boston in its remaining 17 games are most points in the standings during the regular season-Bruins have 95. The record is 103 by Montreal in 1968-69, most points by a player -Esposito has 117, he holds the record of 126 set in the 196849 season, most goals by a line- Esposito, Hodge and Cashman have 109, the record is 114 by Gordie Howe, Alex Delvecchio and Frank Mahovlich with Detroit in 1968-69; most home wins -Boston has 28, the record is 29 by Montreal in 1955-56 and Boston in 1968-69; most road wins -Boston now has 16, record is 20 by Detroit and Montreal, twice each. Also, for the first time by any team, the Bruins have four men atop the individual scoring race. Esposito leads with 117 points on 52 goals and 65 assists, Bobby Orr has 103 points on 29 goals and 74 assists. John Bowling scores Perez, Helton sign contracts CALGARY (CP) - Veteran lineman John Helton and defensive back Gig Perez have been signed to 1971 contracts, Calgary Stampeders of the Western Football Conference announced today.

(AP) - Controversy threatens to flare today when the words amphetamine and barbiturate are added to the language of baseball for major league personnel sitting down to begin the first organized drug education program in team sports history. Initiated b y commissioner Bowie Kuhn and scheduled to be conducted by Dr. Garrett O'Connor of the Johns Hopkins University drug abuse centre, the program is spiced with the prospect of considerable resentment from some of those ordered to attend. "Sure there's resentment," said one club official. "A lot of people feel too much has been made of it-that a problem is being created where none exists." One of those expressing irritation is Elston Howard, former catcher for New York Yankees, now a coach with the club. "This whole thing started with Bouton and Meggyesy," Howard Remains one of top paid Willie Mays says okay By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Willie Mays didn't say hey. He said OK, and by doing so the San Francisco Giants' veteran outfielder remained one of baseball's highest paid players. The 39-year-old centrefielder, who had been holding out for a 10-year, $750,000 contract, settled Monday for a two-year pact worth more than $300,000 to head a group of three high-priced players to sign. Frank Howard, the American League's home run and runs-batted-in champion last year, got an estimated $20,000 raise from Washington Senators as he inked a one-year, $140,000 pact. And Johnny Bench of Cincinnati Reds, who had been seeking $500,000 over three years, signed a one-year contract valued at $80,O0O-$90,00O. He agreed to terms Sunday. Also signing Monday were Ted Savage of Milwaukee Brewers and Craig Nettles of Cleve- Shaw still leads NEW YORK (AP) - Tom Shaw still is the leading money-winner on the Professional Golfers Association tour despite his failure to survive the cut in the PGA tournament in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., last weekend. Shaw has earned $73,027, followed by Miller Barber with $60,985, Billy Casper with $60,185, and Arnold Palmer with $58,862. Jack Nicklaus' $40,000 PGA victory was enough to vault him from 34th to fifth place with $48,755. land Indians-but that still left plenty of holdouts. And one of them, Cleveland's Vada Pinson, said he might St. Basil's sitting in drivers seat After two games in the City Recreation Hockey League semi-final series between the M and K Generals and St. Basil's the Generals, find themselves in a tough situation. Last night the Saints skated to a 7-4 victory over the Generals and took a 2-0 lead in their best of five series needing only one more victory to win the series. If the Generals hope to stop the Saints, they must stop the top scoring line in the City Recreation league. Bob Balazs, Dick Cusson and Jerry Heck are the thorns in the Generals' side as they continue on their scoring spree. In last nights action Balazs and Heck picked up two goals while Cusson added a single. The latter two palyers also assisted on both Balaz's markers with perfect three-way passing plays. Bob Boswell also had a fine night for the Saints as he chipped in with two goals for the evening. For the Generals Bob Reid, Tex Wiebe, Al Willis and Pete Neufeldt all blasted in a goal. seek legal aid to get a raise. The Giants, who paid Mays an estimated $135,000 a year ago, didn't announce terms of the new contract but it was believed to be worth $155,000 or $160,000 a year. The 20-year veteran batted .291 with 28 homers and 83 RBI in 1970. "We have always kept Willie's contract the highest in baseball," said a club spokesman. "Maybe it still is." Carl Yastrzemski recently signed with Boston Red Sox for an estimated $160,000. Pinson is trying to get a $7,500 raise over his 1970 contract of $60,000. He said he has asked Alvin Dark to trade him but that the Cleveland manager has refused. Pinson added he was in favor of Curt Flood's court challenge of baseball's reserve clause which binds a player to a team for life unless he is traded, sold or released, "and I'm certainly all for it now. "The Indians have tied me up and there's nothing I can do but what they say." Among the game's other holdouts, are Tony Oliva of Minnesota Twins and Mike Andrews of Chicago White Sox. Oliva is reported seeking $100,000-about $30,000 more than the Twins are offering. And Stu Holcomb, Chicago's executive vice president, said the club planned to invoke the rule under which a holdout may be signed at last year's salary. He said the Sox have offered Andrews, obtained from Boston in an off-season trade, a raise over his 1970 salary estimated at $36,000. contended, citing books written by former Yankee pitcher Jim Bouton and a former St. Louis Cardinal football linebacker, Dave Meggyesy, that contained disputed statements about drug uses in their respective sports. "I hear people doing a lot of talk ... but I have no knowledge of anyone using 'green-ies'." Howard, however, acknowledged he had heard about the statement made by pitcher Chuck Dobson of Oakland Athletics, who said recently he had taken 'greenies.' And Howard, like everyone else, is fully aware of Kuhn's statement that "there has been in baseball a reasonably limited use of pills in the amphetamine and barbiturate group." But what baseball people like Howard and Mike Burke, president of the Yankees, are concerned about is the impression being created that the sport has a major problem, which might be reflected in a battle over the direction the program takes. "The way it sounded when It was announced was that baseball had a big drug problem and was clamping down," said Burke. "I've never seen it on our club. It just doesn't exist here." The seminars scheduled by Kuhn also will be held in Tampa Wednesday and Phoenix, Ariz., March 18 for managers, coaches, general managers, farm directors, trainers, umpire supervisors and travelling secretaries.

Ali, speaking from Miami Beach, Fla., Monday in a na-tional telephone interview, gave that answer when asked to sum up the fight in one word. Frazier did not participate in the interview. Ali said outside pressures would be too much for Frazier. "Joe Frazier is used to boxing. He's not controversial. He's not used to controversy." "I represent the masses," and Frazier is "looked on the eyes of the world as the American representative, as the white man's champion." "This fight will be no contest. I'll show you who the real champion is. "I'm gonna have me a good time for four or five rounds. "My timing is ready. Fra-zier's so easy to hit, he makes it ready." The Gardens announced that the required pre-fight physicals will be held Wednesday at Felt Forum-Frazier at 9:30 a.m. MST, and Ali at 11 a.m. MST. Frazier will be weighed at 11:30 the day of the fight and Ali will be weighed after Frazier leaves.
