And fellow Philadclphian Boh Kelly, reported earlier in the week lo have signed with the Yational Hockey League now is said to be headed for liicago Cougars of the rival World Hockey Association. Kelly couldn't he reached for comment, but Schultz said from lis Tlosctown, Sask., home he nothing about his re- ported signing Monday b y York Raiders of the WHA. Low gross honors to Van Buskirk Bill Van Buskirk playing wilh the Packers' foursome fired a 41 to take home the low gross honors in Counlry Club Golf League play Tuesday night. Low net honors went, to Jim McDonnell, who ended with a .13 and helped Eatons stay on top of the league with Lake- view Texaco. Both clubs have 24 points apiece in first place, hut are closely followed by Tolles- trup's and CHEC with 23 points each. The low team net score went lo the Bcny's foursome which included Boh McGregor, Vaughn Hembroff. Brent Logan and Don Rice who combined for a 352 score.

CALL C'ONIT.KKNCE Humors abounded in Winni- peg that an established NHL player was conferring Tuesday night wilh Jets officials and the club has called a news confer- ence for ]0 a.m. CDT today. II could not be confirmed, how- ever, who or what would be an- nounced. "As far as I know I'm signed with the Schultz said. "But my JawTer handles all that." He said rumors of him signing mill several (earns in recent days lias upset him and that he didn't want lo make any further comment until he talked to his Philadelphia lawyer, Howard Casper. Schultz, who amassed an AHL record 392 minutes in the pen- alty box with Richmond Ibis season, concluded: "I'd like lo know what, the hell's going on." Meanwhile, Ed Short, general manager of the Cougars, be- came upset over the announced signing Monday of Kelly by Philadelphia to a multi-year pact. CLAIMS CONTRACT Short said the Clucago team has "a legal contract with Kelly signed last Tuesday" and that the Cougars could possibly file suit if the 21-year-old winger re- mains in Philadelphia. In Houston, Aeros president Jim Smith said the WHA lias agreed to pool its resources to malch the contract Hull is seeking to negotiate wilh Chicago. The 15-year NHL veteran, five times 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 with Winnipeg. The Jeus look Hull in Ihe uni- versal WHA draff earlier Ihis year. Smith said Ihe WHA voted during a recenl meeting in Quebec City to let Winnipeg pay ?1 million dollars of the contract with the other nine members chipping in apiece. "He wants million and we feel he's Iho type of player who would be a tremendous draw for Ihe league." Smith added thai from "people I've lalkcd io" Hull is serious and that "there's at. leasl a 50-50 chance he'll be in our league." King-Browns top regalta Dr. R.

"Under the circumstances there was nobody left to com- municalc Hockey Canada's posi- tion to anybody in the said Campbell. L'ndcr an agreement wilh Hockey Canada, the three Cacia- dian NHL franchises at Toronto, I Montreal and Vancouver agreed to give player support to any open hockey series with the I then world champion Russian team. i 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. N'OTES PROBLEMS "As far as Vancouver is con- cerned I'm not saying they weren't said Camp- bell, "but Mr. McLean (Can- ucks' board chairman Cyrus McLean) is not the normal rep- resentative on Ihe Vancouver club, plus the obvious limita- tions under which they oper- ate." The Canucks are owned by Minneapolis-based Medicore and its two chief officers, Thomas Scallen and Lyman D. Walters, have been involved with the British Columbia courts over movement of funds designated for the hockey club into accounts of a parent firm. "So when the package (series of games between Russian and Canada) emerged from Prague." Campbell continued, "I think a lot of NHL people were taken by surprise, He added that initially, proba- bly, some "noses were a little out of joint that (hey hadn't been informed" of the goings-on in Prague between Hockey Can- a d a, Ihe International Ice Hockey Federation and the So- viet hockey hierarchy, "Plus the fact the observa- tions (regarding participation by players from U.S. teams) were made for the most part by lower echelon in the management long More the owners had an opportunity to say what they thought." One of those opposed to allow- ing his players take part in the series under ils present format was W'eston Adams Jr., the youthful president of Boston Bruins, 1071-72 Stanley Cup champions. Campbell implied, however, that perhaps those originally against the venture may have second thoughts when tbe gover- nors meet here this week. McGregor's selection controversial TORONTO (CP) Selection of Billy McGregor of Toronto lor Canada's Olympic judo team has evoked differences of opin- ion between Canadian and On- t n r i o associations and has drawn letters of prolest from Goki Uemura, of Toronto, Cana- dian lightweight champion. Uemura, defeated Mc- Gregor for the Canadian title, claims politics played a role in Ihe selection and in Jrtler.5 lo Sport Ontario, Health Minister .John Munro and James C.'mart.Vs International Olympic Committee representative, he tu-gcd that the selection process be altered. Uemura defeated McGregor in Ihe national championships in Halifax last weekend and also in the Onlario championships, in Mnrch.

(AP Wirephoot) Last practice for Indy 500 INDIANAPOLIS, Ind CAP) 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 "carburelion" runs. The 2.5-m i 1 e Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where more than 250.000 will gather lor the 56th running ot the richest mo- toring event in the world, opened at 10 a.m. for the first time since time trials ended Smiday. The carhuretion 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 Tigers open with victory EDMONTON (CP) Ed- _....._._ .___ ___ monton Tigers, capitalizing on Lindsey Hopkins, a wealthy soil two big innings, defeated Red I drink bottler from Atlanta. What the drivers actually do is practice, the same as they have done all mouth. For their final day on the oval, however, they use their race-day chassis setup, the new engines they have installed or reworked, and check fuel consumption and tire wear. LOSES DRIVER Hopkins, meanwliile, lost one of his regular drivers when Wally Dallcnbach was selected Tuesday to drive Andy Grana- lelli's STP-Lola. Along with Mel Kenyon and Roger McClustey, Dallcnbach 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-slock-car driver Cale Yarborough. Granatelli's Lola had been qualified in the middle of the fourth row by 45-year-old Art Pollard during (lie first round. He wrecked it two days later, however, and wound up in Ihe hospilal with a broken 1 not shown, thus will make Iiis sixth Indy start anyway. Dallenbach probably will be the busiest driver at the Speed- way dunng the carburetion tests. Hace officials direcled that Lhe Lola must run at least 100 miles before it Is certified for competition.
