It was Toronto's third win in a row under King Clancy, hand- ling the bench while ailing coach Johnny JIcLcllan rests ois ulcer in Florida. They did it without Hender- son, their leading scorer who ;-as admitted to a St. Louis hos- pital earlier in the day with gas- troenteritis. Marshall has been on the limp and Trottier was in. Ottawa where his mother died earlier in the week. Leafs called in winger Brian Spencer, who had been with them early in the season, for the game at St. Louis. Tardif, in a mile! slump, said he wasn't aware he had been doing anything differently but "often you make certain moves and they don't work, then an- other game they do who can figure it The goals gave him 27 for the season while Cournoyer's were Nos. 94 and 53. Cournoyer, while feeling he'll better his banner year of 43 goals, isn't io opti- mistic about Montreal improv- ing their third-place standing in the East. I OYALTY in llic National llockoy League is under- going ils most severe test in its history. Players who once felt the team was number one now arc turning their hacks on the old establishment and looking to the new, the World Hockey Association. Three teams in particular have (ell the bite of high- salaried players talking with WHA members and a lot of it. it appears, is more than just talk. Bernie Parent, Toronlo Maple Leafs' nelminder, is ready lo go to Miami Screaming Eagles for what he describes as a guaranteed contract covering five years. Parent says when he was with Philadelphia Flyers his only thoughts were of the team. He thought he was the number one goalie Ihcie and he was traded. Now Number One, in case you are interested, is Monsieur Parent. ERENCES ASH BUT NER MIGHT WORRY MY CUSTOMERS IP ONE OF 'EM PINB3 A HAIR IN 'IS DRINK. AS UONG AS YER.

I figured these guys aren't loyal to each other so why should I be loyal to Loyalty apparently gets a laugh from TCod Gilbert of the New York Hangers, star right winger of Ihe Rangers' GAG (goal-a-game) Line. After his best season in the NHL in 1970-71, he ex- pected a healthy raise for his efforts, instead of money Gilbert received a lecture regarding wage ceilings, and he became disenchanted with Manager Emile Francis and the Ranger organization. A close friend of Gilbert says he will jump lo the WHA in a second if Ihe price is right. He has no more loyalty to New York or the Rangers than Mao Tse- lung. Presumably, the biggest act of "treason" will be performed by Bobby Hull of the Chicago Black Hawks. Winnipeg Jets' owner Ben Haskin says he has signed Hull for next season Reliable sources claim the con- tract that lured Hull from the Hawks was for with another being held in escrow. Only time will tell just how many players, it any, will jump Ihe NHL for supposedly more money in As Hull pointed out recently, "there are a lot of S15.000 hockey players in the NHL looking for a raise." If. this is Ihe case the WHA will find players but. will they have the money and support? That's the question that will he answered next October when the new league is scheduled to open the doors for business. Jack UeHeer writes from Ihe Netherlands that he and Ron Krikke are in Romania tins week for llio world C group hockey championships. They extend until March 12 and then it's off to Switzerland for the junior championships. Both DeHeer and Krikke are eligible for both clubs because of age. It must be some thrill for both to play for a world champion- ship after coming out of juvenile hockey in Lethbridge last season. Gregg Pilling, a firebrand hockey player who makes Lethbridge his home in the off-season, has been named player of the year in the Eastern Hockey League as well as second-team, all-star right winger. He is play- ing with the Sun Coast Suns of St, Petersburg, Florida. After a brief stint coaching in Switzerland, Pilling returned io tho Eastern League, took over as captain of the Suns and is having himself a good year. And how about the avid football fan whose wife said to him, "you love football more than me." He replied, "yes, hut 1 love you more than basketball." NEW YORK (AP) Contin- ual expansion and the battle for the spectator dollar threatened to strangle interest in profes- sional baseball and football, a nation-wide survey by The Asso- ciated Press said Wednesday. "All professional sports sea- sons arc currently too need to be cut back considera- said LeRoy Bearman of the Albuquerque N.M. Journal. "It would be good for all major football and there was at least a one-week break between the schedules of each of the contended Ray Wise, WKEN Radio, Dover, Del. Such opinions dominated a special poll of sports writers and broadcasters, who gave pro football a wide edge over base- ball as America's favorite sport yet selected the baseball World Series over football's Super Bowl as the nation's No. 1 sports event. The ballot asked two tjues lions; What is America's No. sport? What is the top sports event? Of Ihe 727 who rcsiwmled, 47 cast votes for pro football anc 223 for baseball, with Uie re maining choices sea 11 e r e c among other sports. The WorlcV Series won out over football's Super Bowl, 414 to 285 with scat- tered votes for such spectacles s liie Kennedy Derby, Olyni- lies and Indianapolis 500.

General Manager Bud Poile of the last-place Vancouver club said Tuesday Laycoe's services will be retained for the duration of his current, contract. It ex- pires May 31. "It isn't a question of his being fired, it's a question of his being said Poile, Anc he made it clear that if Laycoe is rehired it could be a short term deal.

Baseball commissioner Bowio Kuhn declined immediate com- ment on the AP survey bub said he planned to study Ihe report. Pete Kozelle. commissioner if the National Football League, -aid: "It leaks as if we're going o have (o work harder on the Super Bowl." The NFL commissioned a Lou larris poll of sports fans and mnounced the result in January prior to the Super Bowl in New Orleans. The Harris poll, a sam- ling of fans, showed 23 cent named pro football as .he No. 1 sport with 21 per cent iavoring baseball. No other sport was close. The World Se- ries had a slight edge over the Super Bowl. Easily Ihe main thread run- ning through the comments was concern over (he sports explo- sion which has brought about en overlapping of seasons'.
