Hull was set to play his first game in the WHA Wednes- day against Quebec Les Nordiques after a Philadelphia court ruling. (CP Wirepholo) Who the Hull got the assist? By THE CANADIAN PRESS Bobby Hull, formerly the Golden Jet of Chicago Black Hawks, made his debut in World Hockey Association com- petition Wednesday night, but his presence in Winnipeg Jets' lineup failed to intimidate Quebec Les Nordiques. Nordiques defeated the Jets 3-2 and Hull, restrained by a court order from playing for Winnipeg since the season opened, managed only an assist with five seconds remaining in the game. In the only other match, Los Angeles Sharks won 2-1 over Elks start with victory Three goals by Bernie Serene paced the Midget Elks to a 7-5 Southern Alberta Juvenile Hockey League win over the Ijethbridge, Kinsmen Warriors Wednesday evening. Serene scored in each of the three periods as the Elks led 1-0, and G-3. Randy Lowe, Mike Boychuk, Reg Osmond and Baden Pilling completed the scoring for the winners. John Milroy, with two, and singles from Nelson Doenz, Rod Pocza and Lloyd Price account- ed for the Warriors' scoring. Hull and fellow defectors can play-for now New York Raiders with a goal in the last minute of play. Quebec's victory moved the Nordiques into a tie with Cleve- land Crusaders for top spot in the eastern division, while the Sharks took over in the west, with a two-point bulge on Winni- peg and Alberta Oilers, tied for second. A goal by rookie Jarda Kru- pica with 34 seconds to play, lifted the Sharks to victory. Krupica was recalled from Greensboro of the Eastern Hockey League and was making I his first appearance in the WHA. At Quebec, before 10.126 fans, Hull collected his point on a goal by Danny Johnson. Hull received a standing ova- tion when he first skated onto the ice, but he was used spar- ingly in the game, mainly on power plays. Pierre Hoy's goal at the 21- second mark of the first period got Nordiques off to a quick start and the Jets never re- covered. Duncan Rousseau tied the score with a slap shot after a scramble in front of the Quebec net, but Jean Payette put the home team ahead again before the period ended. The Nordiques went in front 3-1 in the second on a goal by Yves Bergeron, on which Hull's former National Hockey League captain J. C. an assist.

Phono 328-1916 By THE CANADIAN PRESS A preliminary court ruling Wednesday in Philadelphia frees former National Hockey League players to pursue, at least temporarily, their careers in the fledgling World Hockey Association. Most of fhe NHL players didn't let court action by their former employers hinder their parUcipation in the new league, but ex-Chicago Black Hawk star, Bobby Hull, dressed for the first time Wednesday night. The Winnipeg Jets' player- coach abided by the court pro- ceedings brought against him by the Hawks to prevent him from playing in the WHA until U.S. District Court Judge A. Leon Higginbotham had made his decision known. His presence didn't help the Jets in Quebec City where he picked up an assist in a 3-2 loss to the Nordiques. Higginbotham's 124 page re- port, which dealt primarily with the NHL's controversial reserve clause as it applied to Phila- delphia Blazers' coach John McKenzie, called for a prelimi- nary injunction that prevents the NHL from enforcing the clause. BINDS FOR LIFETIME The clause binds a player to his team for life unless traded, sold or released. The judge said he could not, at this stage, make a finding as to whether the clause vio- lates the Sherman Anti-Trust Act but "merely hold now that I desire a fuller record before making judgment on the Sher- man Act issue." NHL president Clarence Campbell said in Montreal league lawyers in Philadelphia will take "appropriate action" after a full study of the brief. The decision probably will be appealed, since the U.S. Su- preme Court ruled this year in the Curt Flood case that base- ball was exempt from anti-trust laws. If Higginbotham's decision stands, it would break down the reserve clause which is the structure for most major sports in the United States. Several NHL stars, including McKenzie, Derek Sanderson and Gerry Chcrvcrs of I lie Stan- ley Cup champion Boston Bruins, jumped lo Ihe WHA f lugh salaries and multi-year contracts. McKenzie's contract was sub- sequently sold to Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL and the Fly- ers tonk the court ;iction to pre- vent him playing with the Blaz- ers. The Blazers countered by asking the courl to rule the NHL reserve clause violated anti-trust regulations, Judge Higginbotham said the preliminary injunction would "maintain the status quo" in hockey until a final decision is handed down. The injunction got a mixed re- ception. Winnipeg owner Ben Halskin was understandably elated in that it allowed his player-coach, whom he signed away from Chi- cago for a reported S2.7 million for 10 years, would finally get to play- Hull, 33, said he was the last of about 70 NHLers who jumped to the WHA to get to play in the new league. Asked specifically if he would play in the U.S. cities, the high- scoring left winger said he un- derstood the preliminary injunc- tion had cleared the way for him "to play no matter where the WHA might play." Pressed by Drum-heller trio Wittchen leads scorers By THE CANADIAN PRESS Injured Eed Deer Bustlers' star Terry Wittchen continues to lead the Alberta Junior Hoc- key League scoring race but is being pressed by all three members of a hot-scoring line from the Drumehller Falcons. Statistics released by the league Wednesday show Witt- chen, sidelined since Sunday with an eye injury, leading with Short sport THOMAS ON LIST SA DIEGO (AP Running back Duane Thomas was placed on the reserve list by San Diego Chargers Wednesday, making him ineligible to play for the rest of the National Football League season. The announcement came after Thomas failed to show up for practice, the Chargers said. "Duane is not prepared to play this season." said coach Har- land Svare in a statement. LATE MARKERS By THE CANADIAN PRESS Swift Current Broncos scored two final-period goals within 39 seconds to edge Edmonton Oil Kings 3-2, and Victoria Cougars rolled over Winnipeg Jets 9-4 in Western Canada Hockey League games Wednesday night. In Swift Current. Dave Wil- liams scored the Broncos' last goal at of the third period, 39 seconds after team-mate Terry McDougall had made it 2-1.

Winnipeg doesn't make its first California appearance until Nov. 17. No Quebec or Ottawa Nation- sis players were directly af- fected by court actions in the U.S. Another former Kings player, Doug Barrie, sat out the early Alberta Oilers' games but has dressed for the last four con- tests at the advice of his law- yer. Court action by Los Angeles to prevent him playing in Cali- fornia is still pending. The injunction offered a con- dition that a million bond be posted by the WHA to indem- nify the NHL against any possi- ble loss in the event the judg- ment is reversed. There was little comment from NHL owners Wednesday. But Gary Davidson, WHA president, said in Santa Anna, Calif., the decision "marks a significant move for the WHA to establish freedom of contracts for players ar.d the rights of hockey fans across the world to open competition." Bill Hunter, a league director and general manager of the Oil- ers, said he "could not care less how the NHL feels; they've acted in a very small way about the whole thing."
