Comer of 3rd end llffiStS. 32S-9271 The Herald Sports At long last reality has caught up with Bobby Clarke's press clippings. For years we've been spoon-fed stories about Bobby Clarke earth-angel, super Boy Scout and, of course, arch-saviour of the Philadelphia Flyers. Which is partly true. Clarke has made Philadelphia an NHL threat. His annexation of the Trophy last year was no more a fluke than oil in Arabia Bobby is for real, it's his image which had been trom fairy tales. But that's all in the past. A guy can cut up the opposition just so much before the enemy starts yelling and screaming. Montreal Canadiens' coach, Scotty Bowman started the anti-Clarke crusade during the 1973 playoffs. At the time Bowman was dismissed as some sort of crank who liked to blemish Mister Nice-Guy's image. Scotty did, however, inspire others to take a harder and closer look at Clarke. It wasn't hard to gape at Bobby. As star of the Ferocious Flyers, Clarke inspired attention. And the more people looked, the more they realized that his baton not only orchestrated the Philly attack, it also opened enemy wounds. Many lacerations. Suddenly. Mister Nice-Guy began taking on all aspects of a refrigerated Dracula. The Canadiens. Golden Seals. Rangers and Red Wings began feeling the sting of Clarke's stick again and again There was no denying it, not even in the Philly front office where coach Fred Shero reminded people that Bobby was doing what the other great ones did: hit hard and hit first. "That's Bobby's said Shero. "He wants 1o be hacking and hitting and all of that. Gordie Howe wanted to be left alone once he got the head injury in 1950. Get him and he'd go looking for you all night, but he wanted to be left alone. Clarke seems to be initiating everything. Against a guy like Henri Richard, he knows he's got to get the best of him immediately with his body, with his stick, with whatever it is." In many ways Clarke is a latter-day Howe or Milt Schmidt, if you will. At least that's how Shero views his man. "Anybody who expects to be said Shero, "has to be mean. Look at the others. Howe, Richard, Schmidt. A guy like Schmidt was mean. He took care of the opposition "In my day when there were only six NHL teams, Richard and Howe were always fighting. They had to, or they'd get killed." Sometimes you get the feeling that one of the Flyers will get killed by one of their own. During a recent scrimmage Philly teammates. Andre "Moose" Dupont and Bill Clemente went after each other with the kind of venom they usually reserve for the Canadiens or Maple Leafs, Flyers assistant coach Mike Nykoluk rushed in to break up the brawl and was knocked horizontal in nothing flat. It was just that the guys are always trying laughed Nykoluk "I think it's good for them. Keeps them on edge." Hopefully, an edgy Flyers club will knock the beehozis out of the opposition "We like to shake 'em up a Nykoluk admitted, "either physically or verbally, just to get that edge. But we don't want to get unnecessary penalties. What I call a worthwhile penalty is one in which Moose Dupont got into a fight with Bobby Orr. When you can take Orr out of the game for five minutes, that's very worthwhile." Significantly, the Flyers have had more trouble with the Big. Bad Bruins than any other NHL foe. once said, 'How do you beat Shero said recently to a Philly newsman. "To beat Boston you do the same thing to Bobby Orr that Clarke did to Valeriy Kharlamov of the Russian team. Break him up." Now you know why they're called "The Ferocious Flyers." A bad night all round An unidentified Lethbridge Native Son defence- man appears to be taking his frustrations out on the opposition. Sons, who led the Central Alberta Jun- ior "B" final series with Taber Palace Pats 2-0, were sent reeling to the sidelines as the Pats came up with an 8-0 triumph Thursday night in the deciding game of the best-of-five series. Lesser-known players sparkle at camps ASSOCIATED PRESS Lesser-known players got some recognition in baseball's spring training camps Thursday as Ted Martinez, Jack Pierce, Terry Humphrey, Ed Armbrister and Dave Parker each played the hero's role. Martinez drove in one run and scored another to lead New York Mets to a 3-2 victory over Detroit Tigers. Martinez scored the deciding run in the seventh, when he walked, raced to third on an infield error and came in on Felix Millan's two-out single. Pierce, used as a designated hitter, drilled three cluding a pair of key to carry Atlanta Braves past New York Yankees 3-2 in 12 innings. Pierce's first double touched off a two-run Atlanta rally that tied the game in the eighth. In the 12th, Pierce doubled again, moved to third on a long fly ball and scored the winning run on Johnny Gates' single. Humphrey drove in five runs with a pair of homers, leading Montreal Expos to a 7- 5 victory over Minnesota Twins' "B" team. Humphrey hit a two-run homer in the second inning and a three-run shot in the third. Armbrister started a seventh-inning rally which helped Cincinnati Reds defeat Minnesota Twins 64. Hit by a pitch. Armbrister went to second on a balk, stole third and then scored on Merv Rcttenmund's double. The run broke a scoreless lie and the Reds scored once more in the inning and four more times in the eighth to put it away. Parker drove in three with a homer and single in Pittsburgh Pirates" 7-1 victory over Kansas City Royals. In other games.

Reggie Cleveland pitched five scoreless innings and Carlton Fisk belted two home runs, pacing Boston to its win. Ron Ellis' two-run homer keyed a six-run rally in the sixth inning, carrying the Brewers to victory. Ken Henderson hit a three- run homer with one out in the ninth, lifting the White Sox to their triumph. Jimmy Howarth singled home the tie-breaking run in the ninth inning for the Giants, Denny Doyle doubled home Mickey Rivers with the winning run" in the ninth inning, leading the Angels past the Indians.

Soviet coaches, player suspended MONTREAL (CP) Mon- treal newspapers reported in Moscow-datelined stories Thursday that the career of one promising young Russian hockey player and the future of two of the Soviet Union's top coaches have received serious setbacks following disciplinary measures taken by the Central Red Army Sports Club. The writers were in .the Soviet Union accompanying Bobby Hull says little WINNIPEG (CP) Playing coach Bobby Hull of the World Hockey Association's Winnipeg Jets had little ,to say about com- ments made earlier this week by former team-mate Lou An- gotti regarding his coaching problems. Angotti, now coach of the National Hockey League's St. Louis Blues, said Hull was having trouble maintaining discipline as a coach because he wasn't disciplined as a player. Angotti said Hull was allowed to miss practice, could fly out of town on business and kept his Chicago Black Hawk teammates waiting on the bus while he signed autographs. Hull replied Wednesday: "Why doesn't Lou say some- thing about the times I went to bat for the players when they wanted some communication with management. Any time they wanted something, they always came to me. "And as far as them waiting on the bus for me, they were burned up because they wanted to head for the nearest pub and had to sit on the bus instead. "Some people forget easily." the touring Verdun Maple Leafs, the Canadian midget champions. The Montreal Star and the French-language dailies La Presse and Montreal-Matin all reported co-coaches Anatoly Firsov and Anatoly Galamosov have been suspended for one year. The Star also said Victor Ovaskin, who had all the quali- fications to make future Rus- sian national teams, has been suspended for life for kicking Verdun's John Bethel during the second game of theseries. Last Friday, during that game, one of the most serious brawls in the history of inter- national hockey competition occurred and apparently the Soviet Union frowns on. this type of incident. Firsov is a former star for- ward with several world champion Russian teams and also was a member of the Soviet Union's gold-medal Olympic squad. When the Verdun team re- turned to Moscow from Riga Wednesday, it was met by Col. Dimitri Goulevich, one of the top officials of the Central Red Army Sports Club. The Russian official met Brian McKeown, the chef-de- mission of the Verdun team, and apologized for the incident. He said the decision to suspend the two coaches and Ovaskin had been made last Saturday. "We as your hosts are very ashamed this happened to our guests; never before has there been an incident like this in the Soviet Union." McKeown was reported to have told the colonel he felt "very badly" and Goulevich told him not to. The incident occurred when a fight broke out near the penalty box and when the Verdun player gained the upper hand, Ovaskin, who was already in the penalty box serving a major, jumped out and went to his team-mate's rescue..
