New York Mets' game against the Cubs in Chicago Canucks willini to trade MONTREAL (CP) Van- couver Canucks Monday were busy attempting to complete a deal that would send goaltender Dune Wilson to either Toronto Maple Leafs or Boston Bruins in exchange for a defenceman or a proven National Hockey League forward. Coley Hall, a member of 'the fired as Coach of the Canucks last week. There had been re- ports that veteran centre Or- land Kurtenbach would be of- fered the job. "We nesd him (Kurtenbach) as a player, although I have no doubt he would make a good Hall said. "But he has two years left on a players con- tract. Wilson, a 25-year-old native of Karen Magnusson, Mon- day signed a contract to turn professional with Ice Capades. Her contract is said to be the highest ever paid a skater to turn pro- fessional.

Sunday the Vancouver team received goal- tender Gary Smith and defen- ceman-forward Jerry Korab from Chicago Black Hawks in exchange for Dale Tallon, its No. 1 choice in the amateur draft. Tallon, used both as a defen- ceman and a forward by the Canucks, had threatened to jump to the World Hockey Asso- ciation unless he was traded by Vancouver. "What were looking for from Toronto or Boston is a rough, tough defenceman in exchange for Hall said. "But at the same time we could use some muscle up front as well as on defence. "In Smith we have a good NHL goalie and now we need some policemen. We've got some pretty good scoring for- wards, but we need" some muscle to go with it." Gary of Boston Bruins was the name most mentioned appeared in 43 games this sea- son and had a 3.94 goals-against average.

Asked if a deal was close to becoming final, Hall said that some times "you think you have a deal made and suddenly it falls through, therefore I'm not going to mention any names."

The 6-foot-l Archibald, the NBA leader in scoring with 719 points for a 34.0 average in 80 games, in assists with 910 for an 11.4 average and in minutes played with 3.681, received 15.836 points from a panel of sports-writers and broadcasters in the league's 17 cities. Each city received a full vote, mean- ing ?7.000 would be the max- imum. Joining Archibald on the first team were forwards John Hav- licek of Boston and Spencer Haywood of Seattle, centre Ka- reem Abdul-Jabbar of Mil- was postponed due to cole weather, and Los Angeles and Cincrnr.ati were not scheduled. "It was a fast said Briles of the pitch Fairly hi out. "My fast ball had been tailing away all night. That pitch was the only time it didn't. But you have to give him hi the thing." Fairly recalled his homer of Briles earlier this season, whicl broke a 3-3 tie and sent the Expos on to a 6-4 -victory. Bu he had a fresher recollection of his other game-winning sho against the Pirates, even though it happened eight years ago. "I hit it off Joe the 34-year-old Fairly said, "and we won 4-2. It was a hanging curve ball, and the winning pitcher was Joe MoeUer. PITCHERS BLAMED The defeat was the 14th in the last 19 games for the Pirates, last year's NL East champions! And Briles, who suffered his fourth defeat in five decisions feels its the pitchers who musl pull the club out of its rut. "When you're not getting any- thing going, you're pitching has to pick you up. It's up to us." Good pitching is supposed to defeat good hitting, except in Boston. In Boston, there's a ballpark named Fenway with an inviting left-field wall, a scant 315 feet from the hungry batter, that is known to chew up baseballs and baseball axioms alike. But Monday night, "The Mon- as the wall is less than affectionately known to mounds- men, kept its distance and the Red Sox and Balimore Orioles engaged in an old-fashioned pitchers' duel. Baltimore's Doyle Alexander pitched 10 innings Of four-hit, shutout ball and Boston's Bill Lee countered with five-hit, scoreless pitching over nine. But neither hurler was around when designated hitter Orlando Cepeda's single in the llth scored rookie Mario Guerrero for the only run and a 1-0 Bos- ton victory. In other American League ac- tion, Detroit Tigers shut out New York Yankees 8-0, Califor- nia, Angels outalsted Kansas City Royals 3-2 in 10 innings, Minnesota Twins needed 11 in- nings to defeat Texas Rangers 6-4 in the second game after dropping the opener 7-6, Oak- land Athletics beat Chicago White Sox 5-1 and Cleveland In- dians edged Milwaukee Brewers 2-1.
