Add to this a general dissension among the lesser lights and Eagleson's remarks strike home. ALL WANT MORB "Even at the bottom of the pay scale, players are becoming dissatisfied with their salaries. It's hard to explain to a player that he shouldn't be getting more money when the club is packing them in." The clubs have a problem, Eaigleson said. Despite rising attendance and big box-office receipts, the league needs Help from television contracts to pay its players. Eagleson disclosed Thursday that the CBS television contract for Sunday aKemoon games in the United States is only $750,000, which breaks down to a little more than $53,000 a year for each of the 14 NHL clubs. He guessed that Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Can-adiens share in an additional $500,000 to $750,000 for Canadian broadcasting nights with Vancouver Canucks picking up perhaps $250,000. "It would be a lot easier if they (the clubs) were all making $1,500,000 a year out of TV." The solution to the dilemma, he said, is pnofit-sWaring. "I know that some players wouW be willing to accept lower salaries if otlier arrangements could be made. No player wants to place his dub in financial jeopardy by pricing his services beyond what the club can afford. 'I really think the guys are prepared to take less money to see that the club doesn't get into trouble." CiR ESCORT 101 101 Penthousa Towert 921 7th Avenue S.W.

Although not counted on to threaten the Boston club, the New Yorkers contlnUied their impressive h o m e -i c e record with tlieir 25th victory against only one loss and seven ties this year. HAD HOPES BEFORE Emile Francis, Rangers' general manager and coach, had early visions of a possible letdown by the New Yorkers who led the East Division through much of 1969-70 before going into a late-season tailspin and winding up fourth. To forestall any possibility of complacency within the organt zation and the inevitable injuries that plagued the club that previous year, Francis made a number of mid-season changes. One newcomer who has paid off handsomely has been winger Bruce MacGregor, picked from Detroit early in February. The 31-year-old veteran from Edmonton, playing on New York's so-called checking line with centre Pete StemkowsU and Ted Irvine, has been a pleasant surprise to everybody but Francis. His t^vo goals against Philadelphia gave MacGregor nine since becoming a Ranger. Walt Tkaczuk also contributed two goals as New York pulled 16 points ahead of third-place Montreal Canadiens but were still 10 behind the Bruins with 10 games remaining on the schedule. Pittsburgh Penguins' financially-plagued franchise appears to have its future remedied with the announcement in New York by NHL president Clarence Campbell that Management Control Corp., of East Liverpool, Ohio, was prepared to make partial purchase of the club. Tb,e team, currently $5.2 mil' lion in debt, has been operated by the NHL since, last year when Detroit banker Donald Parsons was forced to give up ownership. Management Control will assume joint responsibility for the debt with Tom Cousins, an owner of Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association, who has expressed interest in gainuig an NHL franchise for Atlanta.

The two clubs will pick up where they left off, with minutes, 25 seconds remaining in the game, tonight in Taber at eight o'clock. Taber, who themselves lost an arena just over two years ago, agreed to thb hosting of the two games. Ian MdCenzie, vice-president of the Alberta Junior League talked with Roy Blais Friday evening and arrangements were made with the Taber of-ficals to stage the games at the new Taber Civic Centre. "The officials of the Taber Recreation BosarA, Mr. Blais in particular, have agreed to let us play the weekend games at their new rink," said McKen-zie. FOURTH GAME TONIGHT McKenzie, ruling on the situation for the league, said that the third period of Friday's game would be piayCd from the 35 second mark and after an intermission the scheduled fourth game of the series would be played. Lethbridge Sugar King manager Syd Hall expressed his appreciation to the Taber people when McKenzie announced the arrangemients at a late hour meeting. 'It's nice to know we can coimt on toe Taber people wlien We are in a bind," Hall stated When the Taber rink burned down the Sugar Kings did their part to help in the rebuilding fund drive and that must have been fresh in the memories of the Tat)er people. Sugar Kings lead the series 2-0 after a weekend sweep in Edmonton last week in Edmonton. The Kmgs chalked up 2-0 and 6-3 triumphs, Friday night, especially in the second period, the Leafs played like they were faring elimination. After trailing 1-0 in the first period as the Kings outshot their company 1-4-6, the Leafs bottled the locals up in their own end and forced the play. TIE KINGS UP Leafs' aggressiveness paid off as they came up with two unanswered goals in the middle frame and held the lead going into the fateful third period. Hockey fans and officials agreed on one thing, tfaene was an excellent job done of moving the people out of the rink. The St. John Ambulance Brigade and the two linesmen in the game, Bruce Gullett and Jack Sumner, were instrumental in the orderly way in which the rink was evacuated. Tlie fine work of public address announcer Hans DeGroot, in keeping calm, made a big difference as the fans filed out of the burning building. "It's amazing no one was hurt," said one bystander. It was indeed, amazing. Northern Bus Lines of Lethbridge will charter buses to the Sugar King - Maple Leaf encounter tonight. The buses wl'I leave the Civic Centre at seven o'clock at cost of $2 per person. All proceeds from the buses will be turned over to the Sugar Kings to defray any losses incurred by the fire. Should a fifth game in the series be necessary it will also be played in the Taber Civic Centre starting at two, Sunday afternoon. CCHS girls win title The Catholic Central Junior gh-ls basketball club picked up the city championship title last night as they trimoiedi Pater-son 22-19. The Catholic Central crew wh)o had won the league pennant with a 5-1 record gained revenge over the Paterson girl's along with the title last' night. Paterson was the only team able to beat the CCHS girl's this season. Liz Kapland paced the winners with nine points in the hard-fought victory.

The all-star guaird was lost for the season to toe National Basketball Association Lakers six games ago and they have lost five of toieir starts since.
