I WWW 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 1907-68 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 S3,-000 for each player to the CAHA. For players now drafted from the WCHL, the club for which he played receives (1,100 if he Stayed for one year and $2,200 he played two years. Of the eight players drafted, four played in the league for two years and four for one year. Boog Powell then forced Robinson at second and when Dave Nelson fired the relay to first b seem an Mike Epstein, the Senators began converging on relief pitcher Horacio Pina to congratulate him on the apparent atreak-erapping 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 Richert, 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 8-4 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.

Who Will Replace Sinden? Guessing Game Is On BOSTON (AP) - The guessing game is on. 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 mami facturing. 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's general-manager, admitted he had "no ideas" on Sinden's sue cesser. SCHMIDT RELUCTANT Mathers, veteran coach 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.
