"We will take a normal com- petitive position with respect to the acquisition of talent, and we will not take an obstructive po- sition in any way." He said there would be no NHL moves to block WHA radio or television coverage and he thought the WHA would be able to play on NHL rinks. "If they want to play on our rinks and we have the dates open, I am quite sure that they will be he said. "I don't know anybody who wants to turn down a reasona- ble rent.

Currently the NHL gives about annually to teams ji the WCHL and there has seen some speculation that the MHL would be indirectly subsi- dizing the WHA if the three WCHL owners get franchises." "The NHL makes its hah'- yearly payments to the Cana dian Amateur Hockey Associa lion Dec. 1 and the situation should be clarified by then. "It may be that as profes sional franchise holders, these clubs will not be allowed to op erate junior teams but that's a matter to be settled in due course." Offtrack betting booming NEW YORK (AP) Offtrack betting is "the fastest growing business in America" despite some shortcomings, H o w a r Samuels, chairman of the York City Off-Track Bettin, Corp., said Tuesday. In a six-page report to Mayo John Lindsay, Samuels sai OTB ranks as the 80th larges business in the city and the 223rd largest in the U.S. Samuels conceded the system was "not free of problems anc disappointments."

If they wont amateur boxing to re- turn, there arc a number ol experienced individuals In the. city willing to donate their time to see that the return Is a success. "And you don't replace such stars very the Detroit general manager added, reflect- ing upon the 25-years Howe toiled at right wing for the Red Wings. Howe retired before training Inside Hockey E POLITICS of the National Hockey League can be as dirty as the politics Ottawa, Washing- ton and Moscow. Unknown to the general public, deals are made behind closed doors, power-plays are executed and huge amounts of money and influence are peddled. In the NHL, the major conflict exists between American and Canadian blocs; between the forces of Clarence Campbell in Montreal and William Jennings in New York with the occasional influence of Bill Wirtz in Chicago. The plum is control of the NHL and all that goes with it. At the moment Campbell is the titular head of the league; a puppet-stooge of the owners, to be sure, but a man who has successfully resisted any pal- ace revolution by the Young Turks of shinny. A few years ago, during Campbell's illness, the governors set 1970 as Campbell's retirement date. But 1970 came and went and Campbell wouldn't budge. When Campbell visited New York not long ago I asked him when he plans to quit. He laughed. "I'm going to die in office with my boots he said emphatically. "Or should I say 'with skates The 66-year-old president means it, too, but his foes have made his position more and more uncom- fortable; not to mention embarrassing. During the playoffs last Spring, for example, Campbell fined the Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Rangers apiece for a playoff brawl. Jen- nings, president of the Rangers, and Stafford Smythe, his Toronto counterpart, refused to pay the fines in what amounted to a public humiliation of Campbell's rule. This audacious behavior actually was rewarded by Campbell who later abjectly reduced_ each of the fines by apiece. Once again, the league presi- dent was proven impotent and dependent on his em- ployers. Campbell's foes realize it would be imprudent to dump him. Canadian hockey fans would rise in anger, for one, and for another, Campbell might turn on his enemies and embarrass them more than they might him. Besides, Campbell has a superior survival in- stinct. For years he fought expansion until Jen- nings became the behind-the-scenes NHL overlord. Clarence immediately jumped on the bandwagon and became an arch-expansionist. my Just how long Campbell can remain president is debatable; just as debatable as the choice of heir apparent. The most logical Canadian successor would be Brian O'Neill, the league's "director of admini- stration." But O'Neill, an unobstrusive type, does not carry weight with the bosses. A more likely choice and a controversial one at that, is Don Ruck, the former Connecticut newspaperman who now holds the title of NHL "vice president." In other words, Campbell's most likely successor. Ruck automatically has Jennings in his corner. Because of his successful work obtaining network television contract with CBS and enlargening the NHL Services, Inc., the league's product-selling arm, Ruck has become the darling of several other owners. His problems are several. He is an American. He has been connected with the NHL for just five years and, unlike Campbell, he has no legal background. But Ruck dismisses the critics. The league always can hire a battery of lawyers, he contends. As a hockey writer in New Haven, he covered hundreds of games. As for my not being a Ruck said, "I spent my honeymoon in Canada 18 years ago. I've seen more of Canada, fished in more rivers and skied on more damn hills than probably 95 per cent of the Canadian people." The Canadian bloc in the NHL is weak. Stafford Smythe died last week in Toronto. In Montreal, ru- mors abound that the Molsons will sell Les Cana- diens and, in Vancouver, the Canucks can't seem to tell just who owns the team and who doesn't. Unfortunately, Canada has lost control of the sport it invented and dominated for so long. Unless a strong Canadian force suddenly emerges in the NHL, by 1975 there will be 15 American teams, only three Cana- dian clubs and the new czar of hockey will be a dynamic young American" named Don Ruck. amp opened this fall after es- ablishing NHL records of 786 oals and assists in his 5-year span with Detroit.

The Bruins, who had a poor pre-season round after winning ,hc East Division title last year, lave two wins, one loss and one tie this season. Detroit has one win against three losses and no .ies.

The Boston Globe said the protest was confirmed Monday by R. Alan Eagleson, executive director of the players' associa- tion. "We have mailed the notice of protest to Charles W. Mulcahy in his capacity as chairman of the owners group in the own- ers-players not in his capacity as an official of the Eagleson said. Mulcahy is a Boston lawyer and vice-president and general counsel of the Bruins. "Our office took this action at the instigation of player repro- s e n t a t i v e s from two other teams, not the Eagle- son said. "One of our primary points is that the Boston ruling should not be an opening wedge to set a eagleson said. Mulcahy said he did not wish to comment until "I have had a chance to study the protest it- self." THAT'S MY GRANDAD Los Angeles Dodger manager, Walt Alston, tries to add a little luck to his grandson's bat prior to a junior college game in Miami Tuesday. Alston's grandson, Robin Ogle, left, said he thought it was an extra special day after he learn- ed his grandad had been named the National League manager of the year. Alston is top manager NEW YORK (AP) Venera- ble Walt Alston of Los Angeles Dodgers, who says "I can't think of anything I'd rather do than was named today as the Associated Press' manager of the year in the Na- tional League for the fifth time. The 59-year-old Alston, in his 18th season as manager of the Dodgers, piloted Los Angeles to a second-place finish in the NL's West Division. Los Angeles wound up one game behind San Francisco after trailing the Giants by eight games going into the final month the sea- son. Alston, whose 18 consecutive seasons with the same club is tops among active major league managers, received 72 votes from a country-wide group of sports writers and radio-televi- sion commentators. Charlie Fox, in his first full season as San Francisco man- ager, was a close second with 65 votes. Danny Murtaugh, the 1970 manager of the year who led Pittsburgh Pirates to this year's World Series champion- ship, wound up third in balloting with 57 votes. The voting was based only on regular season performances. The affable Alston, however, paid tribute to Murtaugh's ef- fort. "That guy in Pittsburgh tlid quite a said Alston from his home in Darrtown, Ohio.
