KEEPS STATE CROWN TOKYO (CP) Howard Smith retained his California state heavyweight boxing championship Tuesday by stopping challenger Tony Doyle at the end of the sixth OAKLAND (AP) Marshall Johnston had nothing to lose but possibly his sanity when he agreed to coach California Seals of the National Hockey League. "I don't consider it a the former Seals de- fenceman insists. "I was well aware of the situation but felt the players had more ability, and the team potentially was better, than the record showed." The record indicates that the Seals, under new management and the coaching of Johnston since Feb. 16, are still the worst team in the league. But recent victories over Montreal Canadiens and Boston Bruins have made the fans and players almost forget the season's 44 losses. Johnston, 32, has a coaching record since putting away his skates at the request of NHL directors now running the Seals. He succeeded Fred Glover, the overworked coach, general manager and executive vice-president for former owner Charles 0. Finley. The new coach is finishing this season under his player's contract. "I've agreed to a one-year contract as coach. I wanted a two-year contract, but the di- rectors said they were not in position to sign anybody to a long-term he ex- plained in an interview. The league is open to offers from anyone desiring to buy the franchise. The new owners, if found before next season, would inherit Johnston as coach or have to pay him if they select another man as coach. Besides improving on the ice. the Seals have drawn an average of more than the previous their four home games under league ownership. They have eight home games remaining. "The club really hasn't had a fair chance since the franchise was formed seven years with such a turnover of owners, coaches and Johnston said. The fans haven't been able to get to know players well because they've changed almost every year." He named Joey Johnston, the team's top scorer, Ivan Boldirev and goalie Gilles Meloche as three players the Seals can.count on and build on. "They've played well all along. Reggie Leach has given us scoring, and we've been trying to improve on defence." "And from what I've seen the last couple of weeks, there are others capable of doing the job. We're not relying any more on just one line. It's The Instant Coffee thats fighting high food costs! HaH the winner! Of all leading brands. Nabob Instant is the one that most often costs less when you buy. Nabob tastes best- so it adds up to your best instant coffee value.

(CP) This year's spring training session is like many others Boots Day has at- is looking for a job. Right now, Day is one of several candidates for the starting left field position for Montreal Expos as they prepare for the 1974 National League baseball season. "I haven't come to spring training yet with a said Day. "This year it's a lot tougher because we have a lot of guys trying for that job. I hampered my chances when I twisted my knee and it set me back a couple of days. "I still hope to get a chance to play and hit and do the things I've always done." Day hurt his knee during the second day of the full team same knee he injured in a basketball game in the winter of 1972. Last year. Day was a part- time performer in the outfield but turned out to be a terror as a pinch hitter, leading all Montreal emergency hitters with 13 pinch hits in 48 at bats for a .271 average. His 13 hits were only one short of the club record set by Jim Fairey in 1970. Some of his pinch hits were timely. One was a lOth-inning home run July 2 against New York Mets which won the game for Montreal and helped break a five-game losing string. While no one likes to ride the bench. Day says you still are a part of the team and have to act that way. "You have to keep yourself in the Day said. "You have to help the other guys. You have to be a cheerleader and not let anybody get down. "You have to be aware there is a game out there and be alert to the situation. You never can tell when you are going to be sent out there." Day feels the Expos are going to be stronger this season with the acquisition of Willie Davis from Los Angeles Dodgers. "We're going to score some more runs, steal a bit more and it will keep the teams we're playing wary of us. It will keep them honest." Kiihn disapproves of Braves' plans NEW YORK
