Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 9, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Thurtdoy, N.vtmHr THE HWA1D FREE MAN Bobby Hull, superstar lefl winger wilh Winnipeg Jels of the World Hockey Association, smiles as he answers reporler'i questions at a Wednesday news conference at Chateau Frontenac Hotel in Quebec City. 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 PHESS Bobby Hull, formerly Ihe 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 lo i n I i m i d a t e 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 Kinsmen Warriors Wednesday evening. Serene scored in each of Hie Ihree 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. Preparing for fight with Bob Foster 'Nov. 21 Ali didn't vote, tells his reasons why New York Times Service NEW YOPK His face in a smile or a sneer, Muhammad Ali changes quickly, from huck- ster lo comedian to prophet to pjet to bargainer with foreign nations to American nonvoter. Once the heavyweight champ- ion, he remains the heavy- weight chameleon. "He hits harder lhan I do he was saying of Bob Footer, the world light heavyweight champion whom he will oppose Nov. 21 in a 12-round bout in the Saiiara-Tahoe Hotel show- room at State Line, Nev. "They're building the fight on him landing one punch. But the real truth is when the fellows meet me, they get a good pay- day. So it's worth the wriippin'." Ali, at a news confe-ence at the Overseas Press Club, was talking wilh Foster, who was in Albuquerque, N.M., in an amplified telephone conversa- tion. "You knocked me down In the Ali acknowl- edged, "and you livin' on that. Just because you knocked me down in Fort Dix, training for the Olympics (actually it was at the Great Lakes Naval Sta- tion, training for the 1959 Pan American you still think you can knock me down, don't "I say one Foster said. "Don't get in there play- in' with me, like you do." "I'm gping to Ali roared. "All I do is play. I don't take fightin' serious. Your prediction is round 8. I'm pre- dictin' again for this fight. You will fall in eight." "What happens if I Foster asked. "Then you are Ali said, smiling. After the telephone conversa- tion ended. Ali had another pre- diction-----that Joe Frazier soon would be stripped of the world heavyweight championship for inactively, that all the talk about Frazier defending the title against George Foreman in Jamaica in January was talk. "Frazier ain't doin' nothin', he's just Ali said. "They'll take the title away fiom him, like they did me." He was insulting Frazier, joking, laughing, but when ask- ed about his cancelled fight in South America, he changed. "I'll tell he said his voice lower, serious. "They had a couple U.N. meetings. All of the 37 Moslem and African na- tions decided they didn't want me to go. They told my man- ager, Herbert Muhammad, they were against me going. So in unity with the whole black world, I told them we would not go. So all I'm saying is, that's all good, but one hand vvnsl'cs the other "Now that I've made that stand for the people in South Africa, I want these same na- tions to make some political stand on the black people in this country. I don't think it's fair for me to turn down some a: lo personal- ly sacrifice for them and their causes, without them doin' something'. Like if we have an- other Attica case, I want those African nations lo stand up for us here. "I'm wailing now to see what they do. The next time sum- thin' big happens to black peo- ple in this country and all those African and Moslem nations dor.'t speak up fo- us, after we stood up for them, and there's no U.N. meeting for the Ameri- can negro, then I'm going to tell them what they can do, and I'm going over there to South Africa and have a great time." Another question mainlined his mood. Did he vole in Tues- duy's election? "T don't vole. The reason is because of the knowledge I have, and the things that I've been taught by the honorable Elijah he said, alluding to his black Muslim lender. "The things that we want and that we need is not in I see tlie politicians promising better jobs. But we want some land, we want a country. We don't think it's pro- gress that' aftei 400 years after building America into the richest country on the planet, and after fightirg in the Japai- ese war, the German war, the Korean war, still righting in Vietnam, all we're promised is a job. "We're a whole nation In a nation relyin' on one another for everything. We need some- thing we can call our own. We don't know our name. We don't know our language. We c'on't know our religion. So pol- itics got fcr me. "My mind is too big lo go and vote for a white man looking for a solution. We're more con- cerned with working together for our own, not looking for ft belter while man to get in of- fice. And everytime he gelg in office, he gets his tie and suit on, and things change. Then wt j wait another four years, comes a better one. He's talk- in', then he gets in, same trick again. Another movement start- ed, it's always somethin'. I got nothing' against politics, but I sfctf so many problems. I'm out in '.he streets every day. I set the dope problem, the prostitu- tion problem. In a few minutes I'll be in Harlem, talking. "As you he said, "box- Ing's just a little sideline for me." But without boring, the chameleon wouldn't have the pulpit he has. And without the i nation he continues to chal- lenge, he wouldn't be allowed to speak so freely from lhal i pulpil. WHA-NHL battle has fuel added to the fire Hull and fellow defectors can play-for now New York Raiders with a goal in the last minute ol play. Quebec's victory moved the Nordiques inlo a lie wilh Cleve- land Crusaders for lop spot in the eastern division, while the Sharks took over in the west, wilh 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 viclory. Krupica was recalled from Greensboro of Lhe 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 Roy's goal at the 21- second mark of the first period got Nordiques off to a quick start and Ihe Jets never re- covered. Duncan Rousseau lied (he score wilh a slap shot after a scramble in front of the Quebec nel, bul Jean Payette put the home Icam ahead again before Ihe period ended. The Nordiques went in front .1-1 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 lo pursue, at least temporarily, their careers in the fledgling World Hockey Association. Most of the NHL players didn't let court action by their former employers hinder their participation in the new league, but ex-Chicago Black Hawk star, Bohby Hull, dressed for the first time Wednesday night. The Winnipeg Jets' player- coacli abided by the court pro- ceedings brought against htm by the Hawks lo prevent him from playing in the WHA until U.S. District Court Judge A. Leon Higginbolham 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 tMs 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 "appropriale action" after a full sludy of the brief. The decision probF.bly will be appealed, since Ihc US Su- preme" Court ruled this year in the Curt Flood case tha't base- ball was exempt from anti-trust laws. If Higginbotham's decision stands, it would break down the reserve clause which is Ihc structure for mosl major sports in the United States. Several NHL slars, including McKcnzip, Derek Snnderson and Gerry Chcovcr.s of Hie Stan- ley Cup champion Boston Rmins, jumped lo Ihc WIIA f lu'gh salaries and multi-year contracts. McKenzie's contract was sub- sequently sold lo Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL and the Fly- ers look the court action lo pro vent him playing wilh the Blnz- i'1's. The Nlazers countered by asking Ihe courl lo rule the NHL reserve clause violated anti-trust regulations Judge Iligginbolham said the preliminary injunction would "maintain Ihe status quo" in hockey until n final decision is handed down. The Injunction got a mixed re- repllon. Winnipeg owner Ben llalskin 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 NHL07S 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 Druinhellcr trio Wittchen leads scorers By THE CANADIAN PRESS Injured Red Deer Rustlers' 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.

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 and 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."
