In Houston. Aeros president Jim Smith said the WHA has agreed to pool its resources to match the contract Hull is seeking to negotiate with Chicago. The 15-year NHL veteran, five limes a 50-goal scorer, has said if the Hawks don't agree to his million for signing and SI million over the next four negotiate wilh Winnipeg. The Jets look Hull in the uni- versal WHA draft earlier this year. Smith said the WHA voted during a recent meeting in Quebec City to let Winnipeg pay million dollars of the contract with the other nine members chipping in apiece. "He wants S2 million and we feel he's the type of player who were listed by Campbell as con- tributing factors to the commu- nication gap. "Under the circumstances there was nobody left to com- municate Hockey Canada's posi- tion to anybody in the said Campbell. Under an agreement with Hockey Canada, the three dian NHL franchises at Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver agreed to give player support to any open hockey series with the then world champion Russian team. Smythe. who died following abdominal surgery' last October, and Molson, whose family sold its interest in the Montreal club during the season, were their respective team delegates to the Hockey Canada committee. NOTES PROBLEMS As far as Vancouver is con- cerned I'm not saying they veren't said Camp- rell, "but Mr. McLean (Can- icks' board chairman Cyrus UcLean) is not the normal rep- on the Vancouvei club, plus the obvious limita ions under which they oper- ate."

Uemura, who defeated Mc- Gregor for the Canadian title, claims politics played a role in the selection and in letters to Sport Ontario, Health Minister .John Munro and James Worrall, Canada's International Olympic Committee representative, he in-ged that the selection process be altered.

(AP) Drivers who will start Satur- day's million Indianapolis 500-mile race got their final chance to map battle plans today during a three-hour ses- sion of "carburetion" runs. The 2.5-m i 1 e Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where more than will gather for the 56th running of the richest mo- toring event in the world, opened at 10 a.m. for the first time since time trials ended Sunday. The carburetion tests have been traditional at Indianapolis for years, but at least one car owner calls them "antiquated." "We haven't used carburetors on these cars in said 1 Lindsey Hopkins, a wealthy soft I drink bottler from Atlanta. I What the drivers actually do is practice, the same as they have done all month.

Dallenbach probably will be the busiest driver at the Speed- r during the carburetion tests. Eace officials directed that the Lola must run at least 100 miles before it is certified for competition. setup, the new engines thev jave installed or reworked, and check fuel consumption and tire wear. LOSES DRIVER Hopkins, meanwhile, lost one of his regular drivers when Wally Dallenbach was selected Tuesday to drive Andy Grana- telli's STP-Lola. Along with Mel Kenyon and Roger McCluskey, Dallenbach had formed the Indy team that Hopkins co-sponsors. But of Hopkins' three pilots, Dallenbach found himself first on the bump list during the final flurry of qualifying, and ac- tually was ousted from the line- up by ex-stock-car driver Gale Yarborough. Granatelli's Lola had been qualified in the middle of the fourth row by 45-year-old Art Pollard during the first round. He wrecked it two days later, however, and wound up in the j Tigers open with victory EDMONTON (CP) Ed- monton Tigers, capitalizing on two big innings, defeated Red Deer Elks 11-5 in an Alberta Major Baseball League gama Tuesday.
