Buffalo goalEender Roger Cro- zier, erratic and brilliant almost in the same motion, allowed two soft goals to get by him in the Celtics stay games up Jly THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Forward John Hnvlicek, who became Boston Celtics' all-time leading scorer Sunday, pumped in 38 points Tuesday night to power his club to a 124-110 win over Golden State Warriors. That kept them games ahead of second-place New York in the Atlantic Division and within two victories or two Knicks of locking up the division crown. In Tuesday night's other NBA games, the Knicks defeated At- lanta Hawks 115-107, Los Ange- les Lakers beat Detroit Pistons 129-116, Buffalo Braves held off Philadelphia '76ers 108 105, Cleveland Cavaliers whipped Baltimore Bullets 127-118 in overtime, Seattle SuperSonics edged Chicago Bulls 115-111 and Milwaukee Bucks Port- land Trailhlazers 109-98. In the American Basketball Association, Dallas topped Caro- lina 113-105, Virginia over- powered Pittsburgh 156-133 and Denver ripped Indiana 123-lOG. The Celtics trailed until Havli- cek's basket gave them a 59-57 halftime lead, then they poured it on against the Warriors, open- ing a 98-82 margin going into the final quarter. Dave Cowens added 24 points for Boston while Kale Thur- mond led Golden State with 35. The Lakers, winning their 29th road game of the season, broke Milwaukee's record set a year ago. And by winning their G3rd game over-all, they kept alive hopes of breaking Phil- adelphia's 196667 single-season victory total of 68. Los Angeles has seven to play. Olmstead most valuable RED DEER teen year old Derails Olm- Etead of Calgary Canucks Tuesday was named the Alber- ta Junior Hockey League's meet valuable player. Olmslead, son of former National Hockey League star Bert Olmstead, polled 53 points in voting by the mana- gers and coaches of the league's seven learns and press representatives. Points were awarded on a 5-3-1 basis. Olmstead finished second in the league's scoring race with 81 points, scoring 36 goals and earning -lf> assists the Canucks to a in leading third-place finish in their first year in the league. Ryan Weckcr of Dnimheller Falcons, who was earlier voted the rookie of the year, placed second in the balloting with points. His 57 goals set a new league scoring record and the 85 points he earned in winning the scoring champion- ship were the most ever by a rookie. Two m Pinters of the Red Deer Rustlers goaltendra' Graham Parsons and centre Dale Lems placed third and fourlh in the balloting wilh 35 and 17 points respectively.

Phone 327-1591 with a 3.03 goals against per- game average, also a new lea- gue record, IXJVTIS finished third in the scoring race with 36 goals and 42 assists for 7f points. Rick Alexander of the Cal- gary Mount Royal College Cou- gars placed fifth in the volmg with 10 points, four more than George McCrea of the Leth- bridgR Sugar Kings and Mark Loinenria of the Canucks. Other players receiving men- tion in the balloting were: Ken of Lclhbridge, five points; Fran Eppick of the Canucks and Tom Lindskog of Red Deer, three each; Ken Wilson of Lethbriclge, Terry WiUchen cf Red Deer and Ross Barros of the Edmonton Mov- ers, two each; and Dan Man- clryk of the Canucks with one. first period to tie the score. Ted HainpRon, who got the equalizer with Minnesota a man short, scored easily after Cra- zier had made three big saves among the 19 shots he faced in the period. SECOND CLINCHED The Stars, who have already clinched second in the West, have only one win in their last eight games. AL Vancouver, seven Penguins shared the scoring but there was little doubt from the outset who was in command. Boh Lci- ler, Shack and Dave Burrows opened a 3-0 Pittsburgh lead by the mark. The Penguins shelled starting Vancouver goaltcnder George Gardner with Jfi, shots in the first period and' continued to pepper the Canucks goal in the middle period. Gardner allowed weak shots by Greg Pol is and Jean Prono- vost to get past him early in the second period ns the Penguins built a 5-2 lead before Vancou- ver coach Hal Laycoe removed him. But the Pengpins weren't con- tent to stand still and odded two more on Dime Wilson before slackening off and allowing the Canucks two goals 33 seconds apart late in the game. Shack, who makes a habit of picking up a team when he first joins he becomes em- bittered with management seems to be holding true to form. 7 VANCOUVER 4 .__ -1. Letter 13 {McDonough} 2.

NOT SILENT 0011E This certainly wasn't the st- ent ogee reporters had encoiin- :eml during tile football season. Thomas, talking in n low, sub- dued voice, was articulate, but ns words carried the ring ol disillusionment. He said his months of silence were self-imposed and not traceable to any outside source. "It's not that I have any tiling against reporte r he "I just don't like people Because of their being narrow- minded on things." Thomas said he felt he re- ceived unfair criticism because of his long silence. "I didn't feel like talking, so I didn't talk. If I read the Consti- tution right, it gives me free- dom to (to as I please. There's no stipulation that says if you play football you have to talk. I get paid to play football." STATES1ENT DLSTUHHING Thomas said ho was disturbed y a statement attributed to Dallas coach Tom Landry after the Bowl thai Thomas would have to change his atli- tude if he Iwped to play with the Cowboys. "If no said that, 1 think it is unfair Thomas said. "There is nothing wrong with my altitude. "My attitude is a winning atti- tude. I have felt that my atti- tude coincided with the goal of lM team. "I never go around and com- plain about him (Landry) not talking." One of Thomas' problems with Dallas has concerned his contract, which is well below that of other NFL super stars. BASE PAY SZO.OOD According to a source close to Thomas (lie declines to elabo- rate on money Duane signed a three-year contract with base pay of only to be raised to next season, tlie third year of the agreement. "I didn't have any knowledge of n e g ot i a t i n g Thomas said. So 1 ttought I'd get a guy to negoti- ate for me. "I got hold of one of tlwse slick dudes from New York and lie was too slick." According to friends, Thomas not only was committed to an inferior contract but was per- suaded to sign over power of attorney to the agent, who later was dismissed. Thomas, whose mother and father had died while lie was in college and whose two brothers suffered ac- cidents and costly ailments, found himself in debt and with a restricted source of income. It may have bctn this pres- sure which provoked Duane's unusual news conference last July in which ho called Gil Brandt, the Cowboys player per- sonnel director, a "liar" and coach Landry "a plastic man." ASKED FOR CHANGE "it was the middle of last sea- son that I found out I had a poor contract. I went to Brandt and asked him lo renegotiate. I knew they had torn up contracts before. Dut he had lost all mem- ory'. "I went Schramm, lie said, 'Sorry, boy, you're stuck.1 I figured they didn't dig me. 1 wasn't the stereotype passing type of nigger who comes in and says, 'Please, Mr. White Man, do this for me'." to Schramra (Tex general Minor hockey DMI Miller scored his second goal of the game in sudden- overtime to give the Stampedera a 3-2 win in the first game of the bcst-of-three playoffs. Miller and David Ilohovie scored in the first period while John Daykin and George Irvine replied for the Eskimos. In Banlam "A" playoff ac- tion Doug Pitt, Tim McCuaig and Alan Boras scored a goal each to pace the Red Wings to a H-l victory over the Kings. Jeff Takcyasu managed the lone Kings' marker. In Bantam "B" play, Daryl Ferguson tallied twice and gave the Seals a 4-4 tie with the Hangers. Bobbie Shade and Steven Michie chipped in with singles while Lloyd Krikkc, Thco DC- Groot, Bruce Cave and Ken Harris replied for the Rangers. OH, BUMEV.'I'VE UEPT ME RlSHT OUT WHERE E CAM SEE IT-, OKAV.'t'sA PUT IT SACK J ECREK HIBINO PLACE- Leafs' scorers go Hat Tough season for Ullman TORONTO CCP) Henri Richard isn't the only old pro who has found the 1071-72 Na- tional Hcekey League soason a frustrating grind without many goals, as Xcrm Ullman of To ronlo Maple will testify. "I've had slumps before, but never one of that says Ullman, looking back to the Leafs' losing stretch in January and February. "Even during stretches when I didn't score, I've picked up a few assists. This year when things went bad, I didn't get those assists. "I've never been involved in a team slump like the one we went through in our losing streak. Usually someone on a team will be on a scoring streak at just cbout all limes to take up the slack. This year, we al] went sour together." Richard, who has only 10 goals this season, saict recently he had lost his confidence and found it difficult to regain while not being used on the power play. HAD OPPORTUNITIES Ullman, with 21 goals this season, doesn't have that ex- cuse, since he and wingers Ron Ellis and Paul Henderson have worked the Toronto power play more than any other h'ne. The opportunities didn't seem to help. "Ron Ellis, Dave Keon, Paul Henderson and I are the big B.C. rink holds lead HAMILTON CCP) Moe Hill and his EICMP rink from Vic- toria, B.C., are at the top of the standings in the Canadian police curling championship for the present. The British Columbia rink, defending champions, are still undefeated after nine rounds, moving into this spot Tuesday with a 12 9 victory over Mani- toba. Two draws will be held today to determine the champion in this round robin series, and if playoffs arc necessary Ihey will go tonight and Thursday inonung. In the eighth round Tuesday, Manitoba squeaked past Ray Steg his Ontario rink with a 6-5 count, but tiien Ontario came back in the ninth round to upset the powerful Calgary city police rink skipped by Dave Gerk-ch, 7-5. Alberta and Sa s katchewan now arc tied with records while Ma ni Loba and Ontari o are 7-2 with two rounds to go. The Quebec police force rink skipped by Guy Foumier, which had tallied seven con- secutive wins to gain a berth in the finals, came up with Its first win of the .series in post- Ing an 11 4 victory over New Brunswick. Quebec also had a chance In the earlier draw, tied 7-7 with Newfoundland, but tiie Quebec effort missed and Newfound- land won this one, B-7.

A reason for the cJllectivo Buffaloes sideline Fort Broncs Bellevue Buffaloes, fourth- place finishers in the Foothills Hockey League at the end of the regular season, dealt the Fort Maclcod Broncs the final blow Tuesday evening. Broncs, runners up in the league, fell 1-4 to Bellevue giv- ing the Buffs a 4-1 triumph in Ihe best-of-sevcn semi-final. Pinky McDonald and Lloyd Pawluk paced the Buffs with two goals each.

An island in the middle permits stable boys to guide the horses in their swims through the 70-metre pol.
