Incidentially, Esposito Is one point ahead of his pace of last season when he won the Art Ross Trophy with a record 152 points. The leading goal-scorer and fourth in the over-all point pa- rade is left winger Frank Ma- hovlich of Montreal Canadiens, who, with nine goals in seven five in three outings last off to the hottest start of his 14-year car- eer. TWO TAKE HALF Coupled with line-mate Yvan Cournoyer's seven ond-highest in "the pair has been responsible for more than half Montreal's league-leading 31 goals. None of the top four have a chance to improve then- status in the single league game scheduled tonight when Chicago Black Hawks visit the Red Wings at Detroit. An interesting battle is devel- oping among goaltenders as Tony Esposito and Gary Smith of Chicago Black Hawks find their No. 1 position threatened. The Chicago pair leads with a combined average of 1.55 goals- against per game. Lome Wor- sley and Cesare Manjago, a cou- ple of veterans with Minnesota North Stars, are right behind with 1.71, while Jim Rutherford and Les Binkley of Pittsburgh Penguins are third at 1.87. Meanwhile in Montreal centre Peter M a h o v 1 i c h will miss Wednesday night's National Hockey League game here against Boston Bruins because of a respiratory infection, a club spokesman said today. Mahovlich is also listed as a doubtful starter for a Saturday night game here against Detroit Red Wings and for Sunday's game in Philadelphia. Coach Scotty Bowman likely will move utility forward Larry Pleau into Mahovlich's spot at centre, with Rejean Houle on the left side and rookie Guy Lafleur at right wing. Lafleur was moved to right whig from centre during Mont- real's recent West Coast trip. Houle had played right wing de- spite the fact he is a lefthanded shot. North Stars most stingy this season MINNEAPOLIS (AP Coach Jack Gordon contin- ually wondered through the 1970-71 National Hockey League season what happened to Minnesota North Stars' of- fence. He surmised that per- haps he had put too much of a stress on defence. When training camp rolled around this season, Gordon went to work on the scoring aspect. Only this time, the North Stars didn't forget about defence. The North Stars, heading into St. Louis to meet the Blues Wednesday night, have allowed the fewest goals in the 1971-72 NHL season out of the 14 12 in seven games. And they also lead the West Division in scoring, 28 goals to Chicago Black Hawks' 26. Montreal Canadiens are the highest scoring team with 31 goals. In the more important as- pect of figures, the North Stars have won four straight games for a 5-1-1 record, leav- ing them in second place with Pittsburgh Penguins, at 5-2-1 for 11 points each. Chicago is the division leader with a 7-2 record and 14 points that go on the line tonight in Detroit against the Red Wings. Bill Goldsworhy and Danny Grant have scored five goals each while goalie Cesare Man- iago and Gump Worsley have alternated to post a 1.71 goals-against average. The North Stars, with 18 goals in their last three games, meet Pittsburgh at home Thursday night. Quick scores four majors In two games played in the Lethbridge Minor Football League, the league leading Es- kimos blasted the Stampeders 43-1 while the Bombers blanked Cardston St. Mary's Bloods 26-0 Monday night. Long-term pact to Van Brock! in ATLANTA (AP) Coach Norm Van Brocklin of Atlanta Falcons pro football team has been signed to a "new, long term according to the president of the National Football League team. Club president Frank Wnll, who sought out and hired Van Brocklin after the Falcons lost their first three games of tho 19GB season under Norb Hccker, disclosed Monday that lire con- tract agreement had been reached in March. Autopsy reveals I heart attack DETROIT (AP) A heart, at- tack was responsible for the death of Chuck Hughes, a 28- year-old wide receiver for the Detroit Lions, an autopsy re- vealed Monday. Hughes's heart attack, due to clogging of his heart artery by clots, occurred with just over a minute remaining in Sunday's game between the Lions and Chicago Bears. A spokesman for the medical examiner's office said tests of tissue samples were tsken to determine whether Hughes con- sumed any drugs before the at- tack. Results of the tests are incom- plete, but if the heart attack was due to drugs, the medical examiner's report would not have been released so quickly. He said the report's release in- dicates the medical examiner is certain Hughes' death didn't stem from drugs. A doctor explained that the examiner's finding meant, in ef- fect, that Hughes had a harden- ing of the main artery supplying the heart. The Stampeders found Brian Quick too hard to handle as he broke loose for four touchdowns in leading the Eskimos to vic- tory. Quick picked up his four majors on-35, and 78-yaid runs in the one-sided contest. Rick Collier didn't go unnot- iced during the evening ramb- ling two touchdowns while adding two convert attempts. Mark Baldry tallied the other Eskimo touchdown on a six yard jaunt while Neil Reid scored the single point for the Stamps. In the second encounter of the night, the Bombers came alive after a scoreless first quarter. Allan Boras led things off with the only touchdown scored in the second quarter while Angelo Viani increased the lead to 12-0 with a 67 yard touchdown in the third. Viani connected twice more in the final quarter of play while Boras was successful on both convert tries. Action will resume Wednes- day night when the Bombers take on the Stamps at p.m. while the Eskimos tangle with the Lions at 8 p.m. SURGERY FOR McCOVEY STANFORD, Oalif.

Japan has spent million on the site at this northern city. Games officials say all the facil- ities for the February meeting will be completed by the end of next month. An estimated foreign tourists, athletes and offi- cials from 42 countries, and tens of thousands of Japanese vis- itors are expected to descend on Sapporo for the 10-day event. Meanwhile, construction work continues on the ice hockey rink, the Olympic Village, and the men's downhill course at Mount Eniwa, 21 miles from Sapporo, which skiers found too steep and dangerous in tire pre-Olympic games held last February. The Olympic Village, consist- ing of an 11-storey apartment house for women and 19 five- storey buildings for men, will become a housing project after the contest. Officials say ticket sales are progressing smoothly, with the major spectator attractions- ski-jumping, speed and figure nearly sold out. A mission has already been sent to various Southeast Asian nations to publicize the games and encourage tourism from the region. To cope with the influx of vis- itors three new hotels are being added to the three existing ones of international standard. Japan, which will field a dele- gation of 92 athletes and 20 offi- cials, has spent some mil- lion on training its athletes dur- ing the last four years. It hopes to gain medals hi the 70-' and 90-metre jumping events, the Nordic combined- slalom and ski the men's 500 metres speed skating.

Too much or too little would hamper events, so mountain troops will be on hand to clear away or bring more in as necessary.
