Edmonton travels to Calgary Saturday for the fourth game of the scries- Sinn Fischler's Inside Hockey AS ATTORNEY for Bobby Orr and executive director of tho National Hockey League Players' Association, Al Eagle- son has emerged as one of shinny's most powerful personali- ties; and one of its most controversial as well. At the mo- ment Eagleson is under fire from certain players for his multi-ice role. Members of the New York Bangers have privately beef- ed that the as he is known to NHL skaters, should resign because he jiot only represents Orr but also supposedly represents them in his players' union capacity. Other slickhandlers have complained that Eagleson, a To- ronto lawyer prominent in the Ontario Progressive-Conserva- tive Party, lias sold out to NHL owners and has not won the players the kind of pay hikes their compatriots in foot- ball, baseball and basketball have gained. A candid type, Eagleson, in an exclusive inter- view here, wasted no time shooting down his critics, includ- ing those on the Boston Brains who charged that The Eagle favored Orr, over the others. "I made it clear at a meeting with the said Eagleson, "that my obligation to Bobby Orr is such that I would be happy to retire from The Players' Association. But if they don't accept the fact that one of the major reasons for the success of the Players' Association is Orr's involvement and that I wear two hats simultaneously more to the ad- vantage of the Association than to Orr, then they'd better say something right now so that I can retire. No comment was made." Orr's teammate, Derek Sanderson who is represented by Boston attorney Bob Wooif, has been quietly critical of Eagte- son and nobody knows it better than The Eagle. "In the Boston said Eagleson, "I straightened out their erroneous thinking that I was doing things for Orr that I wasn't doing for the rest of the players." Nobody has been more uneasy about Eagleson's dual po- sition than Orr, himself. The Eagle is acutely aware of this, too. said Eagleson, "would like me out ot the Asso- ciation simply because it hurts him to hear the sniping about me when he knows I've gone to great lengths to do the right things." The New York Rangers dressing room has been a centre of anti-Eaglcson feeling; partially because of the Orr-Eagle tie-up and also because such Rangers as Rod Gilbert, Glen Sather and Brad Park have become disenchanted with some of Eagleson's accomplishments. A few Rangers also resented the fact that their ex-captain and player representative, Bob Nevin, was a close friend of Eagleson's as was Lou Angotti, an ex-Ranger now with Chicago. "At the New York m e e t i n Eagleson recalled, "the Rangers blamed Nevin for not relating things to them. One player said: 'Oh, well, we know what those Association meet- ings are like. Nevin says 'I move it' and Angotti says, 'I second it.' "But actually, there are 14. player representatives from 14 teams so there are 14 areas of opinion, I'm happy to say there has never been a vote in the history of the Asso- ciation that has not been unanimous." Ilod Soiling, the Rangers rep, was angry at Eagleson for the small playoff bonuses NHL players receive. He told Eagle- son just that at their last meeting. Selling demanded, "we want for the playoffs and we're going to get Eagleson neither agreed nor disagreed, "It's not as simple as Eagieson replied. have to show the owners a manner in which they can pay that kind of dough. All we have to do is convince the owners." Eagleson likely will face more flak at the June hockey meetings in Montreal. He is prepared to done it already, three times, and was persuaded to the play- ers aren't happy with his overall accomplishments. No doubt several skaters, edged on by their attorneys, will ask just how Eagleson can act for Orr and also act for the Players' Association? "All I The Eagle replied, "is that until salary dis- cussions come within the area of the Association, then there is absolutely no conflict of interest. "The information I glean from individual players I put to the advantage of the Associafion; not the reverse. There's no advantage I gain from Ihe knowledge of Association matters that's passed on lo br-ncfit individual plfiyrrs. "On tho. oilier hand, there's considerable advantage to Hie Association because of the information I'm able to cause I represent some players." So far, after five years as Association director, Eagle- son's objeclors have been overruled. But, like every politician, he knows he cannot be boss forever. "I look at my Eagleson concluded, "and I look at what has been accomplished by strength and I say that if (here's onn word of disunity I'll resignl" out front, (roiled by Saskatche- wan's Jim Wilson of Saskatoon and Rick Neff of Nanalmo, B.C., with four wins and two losses. Gaiy M a c D o n a I d of Oromocto, N.B., Doug Dafoe of Thunder Bay, representing Northern Ontario, and John McTavisli of Manitoba have 3-2 records. Newfoundland's John Bastow's rink from Labrador City is nexl with two wins and three losses, while three teams are lied with two wins and four losses. They are Mc-Doijum, Jujiu Primrose of Halifax and Tom Sephton of Montreal. Bob Burnett of Prince Ed- ward Island is last with one win and four losses. In the seventh round, sched- uled for 2 p.m. HIST today, Nova Scotia plays P.E.I., Alberta meets Newfoundland, Manitoba goes against Ontario, British Columbia against New Bruns- wick and Northern Ontario against Quebec. Saskatchewan has the bye. In the sixth round, B.C. beat Manitoba 8-5. It was Quebec 10 Newfoundland 8, Northern On- iario 7 Nova Scotia 5, and Sas- katchewan 14 P.E.I. 4. New BrunsMick had the bye. In the fifth round, Saskatche- wan dumped Northern Ontario 11-s, Quebec beat Ontario 9-8, Alberta dumped B.C. 11-2, Mani- toba nipped New Brunswick 7-G and Newfoundland scored six in :he final two ends to defeat Nova Scotia 13-11. RINK DISAPPOINTED The sixth round included a disappointment for the Char- lottetown rink. Trailing 5-0 after Ihe second end, skip Burnett drew in for shot rock to cut off three Sas- katchewan counters to make the score 5-1. However, seconds later an of- ficial of (he Canadian Curling Association ruled that Burnett had crossed the hog line and disqualified the P.E.I, rock. All three Saskatchewan rocks counted and the score suddenly was il-0 after three ends. The demoralized Charlotte- town rink scored in two ends but only managed a total of four against Saskatchewan's 14.

IT'S AW CRIMINAL RECORtV -1 AVEN'T SCORED A GOAL ALL SEASON Criticise skating champ ionships British writers upset LONDON (CP) Organiza- ion of tliis year's world figure- kating championships held in Calgary comes in for sharp crit- cism by a British sports writer oday. Sandra Stevenson, writing in ie Guardian, dies the way laig Oundjian of Britain walked >iit during last week's competi- ion. "What is so sportsmanlike ibout continuing to subject to the vagaries of skat- ng politics wlien those deciding 'our fate are themselves un- The Guardian writer asks. She says that despite appar- nlly large financial proceeds rom the annual championships, he skaters themselves "see not i penny of the money" and in 'act are severely limited by the 'nternational Skating Union in .he amounts they may spend on meals. The Guardian article suggests iat such restrictions are ex- :ended to taxi rides as well. Tt says that men's champion 3ndrej Ncpela of Czechoslova kia "was seen forlornly making his way back to the officials' hotel" after winning bis gold medal at Calgary. "A radio announcer luckily spotted him and gave him a tho article continues. "Toller Cranston, the Cana- dian champion and biggest ap- plause winner that evening, also found himself stranded. His coach had to pay for their taxi." MLss Stevenson alleges that a group of skaters, including Minor hockey Lelhbridge Marlands will be in Fort Macleod for the second game of the two-game, total- point south 2one Pee Wee final. Marlands won the first game 8-1 last weekend. The game to- night is set for Bob Rapauno tallied in the third period and gave the Bears a slim 2-1 victory over the Penquins in Pee Wee ac- tion Wednesday night. Robbie Sudiekate scored the other Bears' marker while C. Jarvie replied for the Penguins. Karen Magnusson of Canada, found on turning up for a prac- tice session that "the organizers had sold tickets and were ex- pecting the skaters (o do (he more exciting spins and jumps." SKATERS REFUSE "Exhausted from free skating earlier in the day, the contest- ants refused, only to have the rink lights turned out and their practice cancelled. "It took much argument to get the lights back on." The Guardian story reports that at one point in the Calgary event "no one could get the en- gineers to adjust the arena tem- peratures adequately." This illustrated how "the offi- cials continually treat skaters with carelessness or high-hand- edness." Skaters "have little recourse against the officials who rulo their Miss Stevenson writes. But this is only the case "until, like Haig Oundiian, they decide that the effort is just not worth the frustration and opt out she adds.
