CONTACT ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL ___________PHONE SIS-SIM STAN FISCHLER Bits and pieces Having lavished tons of praise on captain Bobby Clarke, The Philadelphia Flyers hierarchy actually may have done themselves a disservice. The Flyer centre not only earns a fat salary as a player but also has become the team's consultant without portfolio with immense powers of persuasion. Insiders report that it was Clarke who actually induced Flyers' boss Ed Snider to obtain Reg Leach, Bobby's junior teammate in Flin Flon at the cost of three gifted players and a draft choice. A bit of advice, here and there, can be helpful but Clarke threatens to annex too much power too soon. Watch out, Freddie Shero! Lucky for Western Adams Jr. that his late father wrote in protective clauses for his son when the Adams owned Boston Bruins were dealt to Storer Broadcasting. With Bruins' manager Harry Sinden gobbling up power left and right around Boston Garden, word is out that Westy may eventually become the "10th little Indian" to be smitten by Sinden. Bep Guidolin and the veteran and competent p.r. man Herb Ralby all have been booted out by Sinden. Can Westy be far behind? Willie O'Ree was the first Negro to skate in the NHL but the first Black star in the bigs will be Ike Marson, the Sudbury, Ont. skater signed by Washington's Capitals. Marson, incidentally, originally was pursued by California Seals' manager Garry Young. It was Garry's hope that, somehow, he could keep Ike hidden from competing scouts. But these days such slight-of- hand is impossible. Remember the NHL's "Pentagon Papers" expose? Those were Clarence Campbell's confidential letters to NHL gover- nors spelling out secret information about finances, etc. which were leaked in 1971 to Red Fisher of the Montreal Star. My in- formants at-the Montreal daily now tell me that the secret papers came from the office of the St. Louis Blues. Sherlock Salomon, where are you7 Vic Hadfield's Team Canada book bombed so badly that his publisher (Doubleday) cancelled all future plans for more hockey books. New York writers who had listened to Hadfield's boring dressing room monologues for a decade could have predicted that. The WHA's gain is the NHL's loss in the case of Bruce MacGregor who jumped from the Rangers to Edmonton Oilers. New York scribes still are lamenting MacGregor's departure. He was the one class character in a Rangers' dressing room which one writer described as "having all the warmth and friendliness of the county morgue or a cellblock on Death Row." This is a reflection on the medieval mind of Rangers' g.m. coach Emile Francis who often seems to encourage his skaters to treat the press with contempt. It's my opinion and the opinion of others. "While other players snarled and griped about stories which failed to present them as godlike wrote the New York Post's Hugh Delano, "and put down writers with turgid interviews or refused to talk, MacGregor shone like a beacon on a dark sea. Some Ranger prima donnas would do well to use MacGregor as an example in dealing .with the press and public." Unfortunately Delano never mentioned precisely who the difficult Rangers were. From my experience, and the ex- perience of others, Ed Giacomin, Rod Selling, Jean Ratelle, Bill Fairbairn, Rod Gilbert and Dale Rolfe rank among the dullest and least co-operative Rangers.

Two WFL teams are suspended ASSOCIATED PRESS The World Football League reduced itself to 10 playing teams Thursday by removing the Jacksonville and Detroit franchises from the remainder of the 1974 schedule, but., not from the league itself. Meanwhile, two of the 10 playing teams called separate news conferences to deny Dodgers, Athletics prove N minors long way from dead LOS ANGELES minor leagues, say many, are all but dead, a relic of base- ball's past. The system in which a player worked Ms way through a series of minor league teams is certainly not what it was. But that is not to say that to- day's system can't work. Evidence that it can will be available here Saturday when World Series rivals Oakland A's and Los Angeles Dodgers seek their sport's greatest prize with lineups that show a harvest from down on the farm. Although starting pitchers Ken Holtzman for the A's and Andy Messersmith for the Dodgers came to the teams via trades, the fellows backing them up are products of the clubs' own minor league sys- tems. "This all started for us in the minor said catcher-outfielder Joe Ferguson of the Dodgers. "We've played together a long time." Ron Cey, the third baseman, put it this way: "Sure, we're young, but we've been playing together a long time." The entire Dodger infield came up through the system, and for a long time the ques- tion was where manager Walter Alston would play the youngsters. It wound up this year with Cey at third, Bill Russell at shortstop, Davey Lopes at second and Steve Garvey at first. In the outfield, BUI Buckner in left and Willie Crawford in right have been Dodgers since the day they signed a profes- sional contract. Centrefielder Jimmy Wynn is the lone exception among the starters. He came from Houston last winter in a trade. Gene Tenace, the hero of Oakland's first World Series title two years ago, came up through the ranks. So from first to third, the A's are home grown with Dick Green at sec- ond, Bert Campaneris at shortstop and Sal Bando at" third. Arizona State University can join in the A's pride, numbering Bando, the team captain, and Reggie Jackson, the American League's Most Valuable Player last year, among its products.

Catfish and A's at odds CHICAGO (AP) Pitcher Jim Hunter of Oakland A's will quit the American League baseball team after the World Series to become a free Chi- cago Sun-Times said today. The newspaper said Hunter made the deci- sion because he claims Oakland owner'Charles Finley has not paid half of his salary for 1974. Hunter, with 25 wins an'd 12 defeats in regular-season play, told Finley a month ago that he plans to become a free agent Oct. 21, the day after the com- pletion of the World Series should it last seven games, the Sun- Times said. A candidate for the league's Cy Young award as the best pitcher, Hunter said he received of his salary in regular bi- weekly installments, the Sun Times reported. But Finley refused to pay the remaining which ac- cording to Hunter's contract, would have been in deferred payments beginning mid-season, the new- spaper said. The Sun-Tunes said Hunter asked Finley for payment two months ago and the Oakland owner has failed to answer three letters. what they called rumors that they would move to some other city. ___ Two other WFL teams have already moved in this first troubled season, and yet Florida being operated by the league, which is under a court order not to move the club. Despite all that, WFL of- ficials claim the league's future is strong. But it did not appear that way Thursday. The series of developments that began in Philadelphia were concluded late in the day in California when com- missioner Gary Davidson an- nounced that the Jacksonville and Detroit franchises were being removed from the 1974 schedule with five games to go- But Davidson said the two teams, which between them have lost about million, were not folding. He said plans to draft players from those two teams by the other franchises had been scrapped because "several potential investors have indicated that they wish to keep the teams intact for a fresh start next year." "We believe it would be best to keep these teams together whether or not they are relo- cated or remain in their pre- sent he said. Davidson did not say if, when or whether Detroit and Jacksonville players would be paid, although he has previously said all contracts would be honored by the league. Players on both squads have gone weeks with- out getting a cheque. In Orlando, the Blazers, who originally were located in Washington, were protected by a court order from being moved by the league. However, the team, which is deeply in debt and has tried unsuccessfully to move to being operated by the league. In Memphis, Leo Cahill, general manager of the Southmen, called a news conference to say: "I want to reiterate that we came to Memphis to play and stay and we are going to stay.1" In Philadelphia the Ben also called a news conference to announce the team was not leaving that city.
