Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 7, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 16 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Thursday, November 7, 1974 Hockey Future gloomy on all LNDON. Ont. (CP) The future looks gloomy for junior and minor professional hockey and isn't all that bright at the National Hockey League level, NHL president Clarence Campbell said Wednesday night. Speaking during a sym- posium at the University of Western Ontario, he said Canadian junior hockey is in serious trouble because of the drafting of players who still have junior eligibility by his league and the World Hockey Association. In the June amateur draft, 29 underage players were picked by the two leagues. Of those 29, 12 were signed by NHL teams and six by the WHA. "Those were the 18 best players in Campbell said. "Those were the players who were to be the box office attractions for junior teams. The effect is already being felt." He blamed the drafting of underage players 6n the WHA and said his league had had to follow suit. Campbell called the future of minor league hockey "very dubious." Rising costs have made it impossible for NHL and WHA teams to support as many farm teams as they had in the past, he said. The NHL president told the symposium the NHL "cannnot continue to be economically viable with its present scale of salaries." During the last two years, player salaries have risen 93 per cent, he said. In the United States, cable television of home games has hurt home attendance and added to the financial squeeze, he said.

ALBERTA PHONE 223-3537 By THE CANADIAN PRESS If the troubled World Foot- ball League manages to finish this season, it may look to, Canada to stay alive this season. John F. Bassett, chairman of the league's executive com- mittee, said in a Toronto interview Wednesday the league has franchise applications from three Cana- dian cities, but might be will- ing to discuss a merger with the Canadian Football League. Bassett, a Toronto native who is majority owner of Memphis Southmen of the WFL, said in an interview that only six of this year's owners have said they will be back in, 1975. He said three groups from Toronto, two from Montreal and one from Vancouver have approached him. Bassett, a former director of Toronto Argonauts 'of the CFL, said he is willing to meet with CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur to discuss a possible merger between the two leagues. Two teams, Jacksonville Sharks and Detroit Wheels, have already dropped out and two others, Chicago Fire and Sox release five, re-shuffle roster BOSTON (AP) Veterans Juan Marichal and Dick McAuliffe, picked up last sea- son by Boston Red Sox after long-time careers with other clubs, were given their out- right releases Wednesday as the American League club shuffled its 40-man roster. Also released were veteran relief pitcher Bob Veale, in- fielder John Kennedy and designated hitter Deron John- son. Promoted from the minor leagues were pitchers Don Aase, Dick Kreuger, Jim Bur- ton and Jim Wright, catcher Jim Merchant, first baseman Jack Baker and shortstop Steve Dillard. Assigned out- right to the Red Sox' Inter- national League team at Paw- tucket, R.I., were pitcher Don Newhauser and infielder Chuck Goggin. Marichal, a 35-year-old hurler purchased from San Francisco Giants of the National League, was hampered with a bad back for most of last season. He fin- ished with a 5-1 record and a high 4.87-earned-run average. The high-kicking right- hander has 243 major league victories during his career, making him the second win- ningest hurler among active pitchers behind Bob Gibson of St. Louis Cardinals. McAuliffe, 34, second base- man for Detroit Tigers for 14 years, came to the Red Sox last winter in a trade for out- fielder Ben Oglivie. McAuliffe hit .210 in 100 games, playing at second base, third and shortstop. Veale had a 0-1 record with two saves last season, pitching 13 innings in 18 appearances from the bullpen. Johnson, purchased from Milwaukee Brewers in September to bolster the Red Sox hitting down the stretch, batted .120 in 11 games with two runs batted in. Over-all, Johnson hit .171 while playing with Oakland A's, Milwaukee Brewers and Boston in 1974. Kennedy hit .133 in 10 games with the Red Sox and then was sent to Pawtucket, where he hit .215 in 57 games. All in the family.
