CALGARY (CP) - Judgment was reserved Friday in Alberta Supreme Court on a suit brought by the Western Canada Hockey League against the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. The WCHL claims it is owed $13,200 in draft money which the National Hockey League paid the CAHA for players drafted at the end of the 1967-68 season. At the end of that season the WCHL, then known as the Western Canada Junior Hockey League, withdrew from the CAHA and formed the Canadian Hockey Association. The NHL drafted eight players from teams which later joined the WCHL and paid $3,-000 for each player to the CAHA. For players now drafted from the WCHL, the club for which lie played receives $1,100 if he played for one year and $2,200 if he played two years. Of the eight players drafted, four played in the league for two years and four for one year. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Washington Senators thought they had a game-ending double play and a 3-2 victory over Baltimore Orioles Friday night. But umpire Bill Kunkel did a double take and two innings later, the Senators were losers again, 4-3. The Senators led 3-2 on Frank Howard's eighth inning homer when Orioles pinch hitter Dave May drew a leadoff walk in the ninth. Don Buford also walked, Mark Bel anger sacrificed and Frank Robinson was given an intentional pass, filling the bases. Boog Powell then forced Robinson at second and when Dave Nelson fired the relay to first baseman Mike Epstein, the Senators began converging on relief pitcher Horacio Pina to congratulate him on the apparent �trcak-snapping victory. But Kunkel, after giving the out sign at first, saw Epstein juggle the one-bounce throw and quickly changed his call. May had crossed the plate and Buford, noting the umpire's ruling, tried to score from second, but third baseman Aurelio Rodriguez scooped up the loose ball and made a diving tag for the third out. BIRDS WIN IT The deadlock stood until the 11th, when Merv Rettenmund led off with a pinch double and Curt Motton, batting for pitcher Pete Rlchert, singled him home. The victory, ninth for the American League East Division leaders in their last 10 starts, kept them six games ahead of New York Yankees, who trimmed Detroit Tigers 4-1. Cleveland Indians topped Boston Red Sox 3-0; Chicago White  Sox whipped Kansas City Royals 9-3 and California Angels edged Oakland 54 in other AL action. Milwaukee and Minnesota were rained out. "When an umpire gives the out signal, it means you have possession of the ball," Epstein said afterward. "I assumed the game was over. "In the excitement of it all, of breaking the losing streak, I sort of slapped the ball toward the mound with my glove." CHANGED CALL "He did not voluntarily release the ball," Kunkel said. "I had started to call the runner out but they yelled 'Safe, safe, safe.' "I wouldn't have been able to sleep if I hadn't changed the call." It was Washington's eighth straight loss. Stan Bahnsen hurled his second complete game of the season-and only the second for the Yankees in 35 starts-as they moved past the skidding Tigers into second place in the East. Danny Cater's sixth inning single off Mickey Lolich snapped a 1-1 tie and Boston scattered six hits In pinning the Tigers with their 10th loss in 13 games. Sam McDowell, staked to a three-run lead in the first in- ning, stopped the Red Sox on three hits and struck out eight. Chuck Hlnton's two-run single capped the Indians' first-inning burst against Gary Peters. Ken Berry slammed a pair of two-run homers and Gall Hop- kins drove in three runs with a single, double and homer, leading Chicago's 12-hit assault against Kansas City. Joe Horlen weathered 10 hits in going the distance for the White Sox. Jim Fregosi's seventh inning homer triggered a three-run rally that swept the Angels one game ahead of second-placo Minnesota Twins in tire West. Winning pitcher Ken Tatum survived a ninth inning homer by Don Mincher.

Who will be the next coach of Boston Bruins? There were plenty of names mentioned Friday in the wake of Harry Sinden's decision to quit the National Hockey League team and enter private business. Sinden's announcement at a hurriedly called news conference was a shocker to everyone, including the Bruins' brass who still were savoring the sweetness of the club's first Stanley Cup in 29 years Sinden, a youthful 37, lifted the Bruins from a National Hockey League doormat to the coveted cup in just four seasons as coach. He had been sched uled to sit down and talk about a new contract Thurday morning. However, Sinden elected to quit at the peak of his hockey career to take the security offered in modular housing manufacturing. Many hockey observers feel that the Bruins will try to find an experienced replacement, However, the team has shown in the past that great experience is not a prime requisite for the job. Sinden was a virtual unknown as player-coach of Oklahoma City in the Central League when he got the call. Names thrown into the hopper included Frank Mathers, Milt Schmidt, Tom Johnson, Murry Davidson, Punch Imlach and Teddy Green. There were coun ties others, but all appeared guesses as Schmidt, the team'i general-manager, admitted he had "no ideas" on Sinden's sue cesser. SCHMIDT RELUCTANT Mathers, veteran coach of a possibility. Imlach, forget about. The fiery coach who headed Toronto Maple Leafs in their winging days has been in Boston. He and Bobby Orr, the Bruins' 22-year-old super star, have been at odds publicly. And where Orr is concerned, the coach would be the one to go. Green, who was known as the Bruins' traffic cop as a hard-hit- Pliantoms Earn Fastball Win Coaldale Phantoms picked up Dust Bowl Fastball League victory Friday night in Coal-dale. The Itost club bounced Taber Oddies Comets 16-6 as Marge Dekker gained the mound verdict while the loss was tagged on Shirley Styner. Next league game will be played next Wednesday at 6:30 in Taber when the Phantoms meet the Taber Royals. Hershey Bears in the American Hockey League, has declined several offers to move up to the NHL. Schmidt, at 50, would be reluctant to return to the coaching bench, which he left to turn over the Boston job to Sinden in 1966. Johnson, a former all-star def-enceman with Montreal Carta diens, is the Bruins' assistant general manager, employed mainly as a top scout and trou ble shooter. Davidson succeeded Sinden as coach at Oklahoma City and is PLANS DROPPED WINNJJPEG (CP) - Plans to have Australia's British Commonwealth Games team compete in Manitoba have been dropped. Briere Hurt In Mishap MONTREAL (CP) - Michel Briere, 20, rookie centre of Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League, arrived here by airplane early today from Val d'Or, Que., and was rushed to hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in an automobile accident Friday night. No immediate report on Ms condition was available. Briere and two companions were injured when the car in which they were riding left the highway on a curve, seven miles west of Briere's hometown of Malartic, Que. Briere was found unconscious some distance from the car. His companions suffered fractures. The ambulance taking Briere to Val d'Or struck and killed Raymond Perreautt, 18, of Malartic. Briere's condition at Val d'Or was described as critical before he was put on the plane. Briere was the Penguins' second choice in last summer's draft of junior hockey players. In his final season as a junior, in 1968-69, Briere counted 75 goals and 86 assists for Shawini-gan Bruins of the Quebec Junior A League. Briere was a key factor in the Penguins' first appearance in the Stanley Cup playoffs in their three-year history in the NHL. He counted 12 goals and 32 assists for 44 points during the regular season, third in team scoring behind veterans Dean Prentice and Ken Schinkel who had 51 and 45 points respectively. Briere counted five goals and three assists in the playoffs. ting defenceman, may get careful consideration for the coaching job. Teddy sat out the past season after suffering a fractured skull in a stick-swinging duel with Wayne Maid of St. Louis Blues in an exhibition game last September. Green's future as a player still is a question mark. He is reportedly to have another year to go on his contract, which pays him about $35,000 a season. That would save the Bruins a lot of loot if Green, unable to play, was named coach. by GARY KIRK KIRK'S TIRE SALES LTD.
