The latest confusion arose at the conclusion of the 1972-73 U of L athletic awards banquet last weekend. This writer in particular, questioned the U of L Athletic Advisory Committee's criteria in distinguishing between a major and minor award winner. To clarify the confusion somewhat, the U of L athletic board informed the Herald of its criteria Thursday. ' The selecting of major and minor award winners starts with the coaches, who use three guidelines in determining which players on his or her team will receive a particular award. The three guidelines are as follows: -first year players to receive an award if he or she has been an exceptional athlete. -second and above year athletes are eligible for an award if they have been dedicated and contributed to team spirit. -athletes or teams may receive an award if they finished second or better in Canada West University Athletic Association competition. After the coaches submit their choices, the Athletic Advisory Committee will review the recommendations and make the final decision. One of the questions asked by this writer, was whether the Athletic Advisory Committee could justify why each member of the male varsity basketball team received major awards. LEASE BEATS BUYING!

By IAN MflcLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer Punch Imlach shouted for all to hear in 1970 that his Buffalo Sabres would be the first expansion team to win the Stanley Cup. Three years later, the 55-year-old general manager still hasn't compiled the personnel to make the Sabres a serious championship contender, but thanks to Toronto Maple Leafs-the team that fired him in 1969-that dream now seems that much closer. The Sabres' chances of making the National Hockey League playoffs for the first time were bolstered Thursday night when the Leafs toppled Detroit Red Wings 6-4. The surprising loss* following an 8-1 Detroit victory in Toronto Tuesday, left the Wings three points behind Buffalo in the struggle for fourth place and a post-season date with East Division-winning Montreal Cana-diens. Detroit, with two games remaining, makes up one game at home Saturday night against Chicago Black Hawks, West Di vision winners, and closes out the season in\ New York with the Rangers Sunday night. The Sabres, meanwhile, end their season at home Sunday night with St. Louis Blues. STARS CHALLENGED In the only other game Thursday night, Philadelphia Flyers edged to within one point of sec ond place Minnesota North Stars in the West by beating Atlanta Flames 4-2. The Flyers have two games to play to one for the North Stars. The Stars visit Vancouver Canucks tonight while Los Angeles Kings, with a mathematical chance to nab a playoff spot in the West, entertain California Golden Seals. Earlier Thursday Imlach announced he was moving the starting time of Sunday's game back IY2 hours so the Sabres could keep track of what Detroit was doing in New York. He recalled a similar race in 1958-59 when Detroit again played a vital role in his bid for a playoff berth for Toronto. Toronto closed out the season on a winning note at Detroit and grabbed fourth place "but we didnt' start to move in that game until we found out the score in New York." OLDSTERS IN KEY ROLE Old pros Norm Ullman and Dave Keon turned the tables at Detroit Thursday night. Ullman, an ex-Red Wing, scored his sec ond goal of the game at 3:10 of the third period to break a 4-4 tie and Keon, with his 36th of the year, added insurance with about three minutes remaining Pierre Jarry, with two, and Rick Kehoe connected for Toronto earlier in the game while Detroit got two goals from Guy ChaiTon and one apiece out of Marcel Dionne and Bill Collins Atlanta bolted into a 1-0 lead in the second minute of play at Philadelphia on John Stewart's 15th goal of the year. But two goals by Simon Nolet just 40 seconds apart in the second period restored the Flyers' com mand. Bobby Clarke made it 3-1 be fore the middle session ended with the first of his two goals, Stewart closed out the game's scoring late in the third period. The Flyers, who have demoralized opposition with their rugged play through most of the season, didn't fail their fans again when Andre Dupont took on Atlanta's Arnie Brown late in the game. The outcome was a 10-minute misconduct to Dupont in addition to the fighting major and a bench penalty-the second of the game-to Flames' Butch Deadmarsh. Deadmarsh and team-mate Kerry Ketter were nailed with bench penalties earlier in the period. Flyers' defenceman Joe Watson escaped serious injury in the first period when he was cut for 30 stitches near his left eye by the skate of Atlanta's Rcy Whalers.

Les Nor-diques can mathematically overtake Philadelphia. The to in T)ICK ALLEN appears have found peace Chicago and White Sox fans couldn't be happier. Allen has had a tumultous nine-year career in the major leagues. It was once said that if his attitude matched his talent he would be one of the best, if not the best, baseball player today. In his nine years, despite his ability to play the game, Alien has been with four ball clubs. He began his career in Philadelphia with the Phillies. In 1970 he went to the St. Louis Cardinals and lasted one year, before going to Los Angeles Dodgers. The story was much the same there. But for Allen, 1972 helped erase a good many bad memories. With Allen happy, the White Sox finished a surprising second in their division. The people came in droves to' see their hero. For the first time since 1965 the White Sox entertained over a million fans. Allen led the league in home runs with 37 and runs batted in with 113. His batting average was a very respectable .308. All of these led to his being named Most But two sets of rules are common to baseball, says Allen. "When I first got to the Phillies camp in 1960, when I was 18 years old, I found that the manager said we were a team - but that was only on the field. "After the game the blacks go to private homes while the white players stay together at a hotel." Allen also thinks it is absurd for managers to want everybody to train the same way. "Different horses for Allen comes from western Pennsylvania. It's all steel mills and the people there are hard workers. They get the job done, and get it done right and by themselves. Tanner is from that area and so is Joe Namath, the singular quarterback with the New York Jets. "I knew Chuck when I was growing up and I knew Joe, says Allen. I remember seeing Joe at a baseball game. My brother Ron's high school team was playing Joe's. Namath was standing there He stayed a season and then went to the White Sox. It didn't surprise me that the Phillies peddled Allen, who at-.the time was known as Ritchie. Ed Ferenz, who lias been with the Philadelphia club for nearly six years, indicated that Allen was troublesome, to say the least. He missed planes, practices and games with the Phillies and followed suit with the Cards and Dodgers. He once missed a game to go to the race track. While with the Phillies he suffered a severe cut on his right hand. He said it was from pushing his car. His hand slipped and went through the headlight. Valuable Player in the American League. What may be even more remarkable is that he is happy. He comes to practice virtually at his pleasure. He is still lax on meeting team bus schedules and goes his own way - until game time. Manager Chuck Tanner has been given credit, and some censure, for giving Allen so much leeway, something which is against the tradition of baseball. different courses," says Allen. He once got into a hassle with Gene Mauch, then with the Phillies and now with Montreal Expos, because Mauch wanted him to do isometrics. Allen wouldn't do them, he was in shape. "When I came to Chicago, that was the first thing I talked about with Chuck, in dividuality," states Allen. Tanner, who seems to have found the formula to get the best out of Allen, told his tempermental super star simply "just be ready." wearing a beret and shades and had his spikes and glove tied to his belt like a little kid would have. Except Joe was smoking a cigarette out of a cigarette holder." "Joe was a helluva ball player," adds Allen. "I don't know why he wasn't playing that day. But Joe is great. And he can pound the pavement after them girls can't he?" "But like all of us out our way, when work starts you get down to business." Kasting places fourth Blazers have a three-point ad-vantage but both teams still have two games remaining. Kirk's first two goals brought the Nats from one-goal deficits and his third, the only score of the second period, provided the winning margin in front of 4,784 fans at the Civic Centre.

FREE ESTIMATES RETAIL ^ AND WHOLESALE INSURANCE REPLACEMENT A SPECIALTY) "item RESIDENTIAL l REPLACEMENTS! Prepared to renovate CNE Coliseum. Toronto group wants WHA team TORONTO (CP) - Several Toronto businessmen, headed by John F. Bassett, indicated Thursday they were prepared to spend.$1.3 million to renovate the CNE Coliseum and bring a World Hockey Association franchise to the city. "I am fairly certain I can have a team here for next season," Bassett said after meeting with the Canadian National Exhibition board of directors. He said a decision by the CNE and Metropolitan Toronto council, which owns the building, must be made by May 1 if the work on the building is to be completed for the 1973-74 season. It was also necessary to complete negotiations for an existing WHA franchise which be refused to identify. CNE president Douglas Palmer said a special committee of directors would possibly meet next week to discuss the proposal and make a rec-onvnendation to the CNE board for an April 19 meeting with Metro Toronto parks committee. "They can't gel a franchise in September so the pressure is on us," said Julian Porter, CNE first vice-president. He said a contractor would hive to be given access to the Coliseum by May 10. The proposal put forth by Bassett and the group, identified only as "the c.wipany," involves installation of a professional-size hockey rink, increasing seating capacity to 9,350 seats from the present 6,000, construction of dressing rooms and installation of new lighting and sound equipment. The $1.3 million for renovation would be provided by the company but rental revenue for the Coliseum would bo applied by the CNE against the cost of the renovation until the company has recovered its investment. The company proposed an annual rental of 15 percent of the first $1.5 million of attraction revenue. It would also become exclusive booking agent for attractions in the Coliseum except during the period of the annual exhibition and Royal Winter Fair. Bassett said negotiations for a WHA franchise were "predicated on a place to play." "We have to have a shovel in the ground by May 10. That means we need approval by May 1, It can be done if Metro politicians want it-but they can stall by sending it to subcommittees, etc." Bassett, whose father, John Bassett, is president of CFTO-TV, Toronto, and a former major shareholder of Toronto Maple Leafs of the National Hockey League, said he discussed relocation of a WHA team with league president Gary Davidson. "I met Davidson on Tuesday in California," said Bassett. "I don't have to deal with him or the league. "He told us to go ahead and make our arrangements with the club concerned." Concern for the financially, plagued Ottawa Nationals had been expressed by Davidson early in the season. And while the Nats' home attendance has been bolstered considerably with their drive lor a playoff berth, the club's major owner, Nick Trbovich of Buffalo, indicated several weeks ago it might be impossible to leave the club in Ottawa. Bassett said there were i number of WHA franchises m teres ted in moving to Toronto, I John Wasileski replied for the but he did not name them. I Lakers Minor hockey Maple Leafs were eliminated from the Bantam "A" playoff series as they dropped a narrow 4-3 loss to the Maroons Thursday night. Darren Ramage, Boyd Blair, Mike Gerbau and Robert Shade scored a goal each for the Maroons while Walter Montina, Gordon Keith and Mauro Cat-toni replied for the Leafs, who held a 3-2 lead early in the third period. In Bantaim "B" play, Len Rook scord a pair of goals and led the Kings to a 3-1 vie lory over the Seals. Brent Maxwell chipped in 'with a single while John Bar thel notched a single for the Seals. The Stampeders advanced to the semi-finals in Midget action Thursday as they edged the Lakers 5-3. Sid Johnson scored twice, including the winner for the Stamps.
