(403) 321-7411 HOME AND OFFICE SAFES Stan Fischler points out it leaves a lot to be desired People catching on to'Flyers' style As every intelligent Canadian hockey fan knows, the.best way to peddle big-league shinny in the United States is by putting the accent on blood. And more blood. The Philadelphia Flyers have become the most marketable commodity in the NHL and not because Ed Van Impe is a brilliantly subtle defenceman nor because Bernie Parent can stop pucks better than most goaltenders. Coach Feddie Shero's ferocious Flyers are where they are because Dave Schultz seems to beat up almost every other skater in sight and Bob Kelly takes care of the rest. Then, there is Bobby Clarke, the Hart Trophy winner who, if you believe some opponents, would cut an enemy's heart out with his stick if the foe looked at him the wrong way. Sometimes the Flyers flay their foe so brutally even blood- thirsty Americans get a little queasy around the small intestines. One Sunday afternoon last month the Flyers invaded Montreal's Forum and staged one of their patented benches- cleared Pier Six brawls for which they have become infamous. Needless to say, Clarke and Schultz were right in there swinging while millions of Americans watched the brawl on NBC network television. The horrible (to some) sight of 38 milling players alternately pawing, punching and berating each other highlighted NBC's "Game Of The Week" and even managed to gain a spot on the rival CBS's Sunday afternoon sports show. In America, blood sells whether it's on or off the ice. But at least some temperate folks are turned off by the crimson theme. Even the New York Times was moved to anger after the Flyers Canadiens encounter. said the Times, "children can model themselves on Bobby Clarke and learn the art of butt-ending. Perhaps they can even practise having their lips punctured by their teeth, which happened to Clarke during the game. "Maybe two friends could play at being Guy Lapointe and Gary Dornhoefer. With 12 seconds left in the game, each swung for the other's head." Mind you, The Times is not the only voice in the United States condemning the NHL brutality. Gary Deeb, the Chicago Tribune TV columnist, has been listening to NBC hockey commentator Ted Lindsay endorse stick-swinging and assorted other forms of mayhem and would have turned off the set except that he was reporting on the program. Deeb was especially sickened by Lindsay's reaction one Sunday afternoon when Mike Corrigan of the Los Angeles Kings swung his stick windmill style at the head of a player on the Atlanta Flames. "That's layin' the ol' lumber on said Lindsay. "Gotta keep the area clear. That stick is the great equalizer.'1 Lindsay should know since he used his hockey machete to great advantage while patrolling left wing for the Red Wings in the Forties and Fifties. But Deeb and others believe that Lindsay's pro-violence philosophy should be curbed. "Somebody had better get the message to said Deeb. "His hockey mentality seems locked in a 1950s time capsule. As it now stand he is neither ethically nor emotionally equipped to broadcast big-league sports over a major network. Championship wrestling is more in his ballpark." The Times was annoyed at Lindsay's suggestion that violent players had guts. "If you don't have said Lindsay, "and you can't take it, you don't belong in hockey." To which The Times replied: "Presumably, some children without guts now will give up the game on Lindsay's advice. Presumably, those who remain in kids' leagues across North American will be those with guts." Flyers' defensive game helps record Kometz, Smith repeat champs MONTREAL (CP) Philadelphia Flyers have become the first expansion team in the National Hockey League to reach the 90-point level in the standings. And a key factor in keeping the Flyers in first place in the West Division race has been the team's defence. While the Flyers have only one player among the top 24 in the individual scoring race centre Bobby Clarke with 74 points and a tie for fourth place with Richard Martin of Buffalo Sabres goaltender Bernie Parent, the defence and backchecking forwards have combined to slice the club's goal against total. After 64 games of the 78- game schedule, the Flyers have allowed 133 goals, compared with 220 in the same number of games last season. The Flyers lead the West Division by seven points over second place Chicago Black Hawks. The Philadelphia club's 90 points better the 88 which Buffalo had last season when the Sabres finished fourth in the East Division and which St. Louis Blues had in 1968-69 when they won the' West Division title. St. Louis and Buffalo are also expansion clubs. The previous high in points recorded by a Philadelphia team was last season 85. Despite their superior record, the Flyers' goal scoring rate is behind that of last season 222 after 64 games compared with 237 one year ago. Clarke is one goal behind his pace of last season. He has 29. Rick MacLeish, a 50-goal man in 1972-73, has 12 fewer goals now than he did in 64 games last season 26 compered with 38 but the defensive work of the club, including the penalty killing unit which has scored 17 short handed goals to lead the league, has played a significant role.

The individual leader in the league is Ralph Stewart of New York Islanders with five of his team's six, followed by scoring leader Phil Esposito of Boston Bruins, Pete Mahovlich of Montreal Canadiens and Syl Apps of Pittsburgh Penguins, each with four. Esposito continues to lead the scoring race with 125 points, including 58 goals, and a 26-point lead over team- mate Bobby Orr, who leads in assists with 73. Ken Hodge of Boston is third with 91 points. Gordon Kometz and Darlene Smith successfully defended their city singles scratch 10-pin bowling title at the Bowladrome Sunday. Kometz repeated as the men's singles scratch champion by blasting down pins in his nine-game roll-off while Smith retained her title by knocking down pins in her six-game series. Ed Woodruff was runner- up in the men's competition with a tally while Betty Marshall placed second in the women's division with a score of 932. The victory'advanced Kometz to the first annual Canadian Scratch Singles Tournament to be staged in Calgary Easter weekend while Smith will compete in the Alberta championships slated in Calgary at the end of the month. Smith is the current Alberta champion. Meanwhile in handicap play, Terry Leong rolled a nine-game series of 11806 to edge out Dan Yanosik, who racked up a score, for the men's singles title' while Donna Borrows captured the women's singles title with a tally. Borrows edged out Karens Carleton, who finished with a score of ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES Boston___ Montreal Rangers Toronto Buffalo Detroit___ Vancouver.
