I The anti-Hull clique resented his critical remarks about Contemporary overpaid skaters who refuse to deliver the 110 per cent effort that has been Hull's trademark. Rick Ley also was mildly rebuked for his attack on Valery Kharlamov. Significantly, the ites were led 1 y the most spirited athlete of all, Gordie Howe. Needless to say Gordie was on the Tight side. Judging by Hull's massive to both the NHL and WHA any professional hockey player Jimp puts down the Colden Jet betrays a conspicuous lack of Normally players overcome bitterness about fcing dealt to another club soon after they make their new ad- justment. But this hasn't been the case with a couple of ex-New York Rangers, Jim Neiison and Vic Months after being dealt from Broadway, defenceman Neiison and left wing Hatfield have denounced Rangers' g.m. ioach Emile "The Cat" Francis for The Catts insensitive handl- ing of their exits. Hadfield recalled that he had spent three hours over dinner 'with Francis just days before his trade to Pittsburgh was an- WHinced and The Cat said nary a word abbutjit. Neiison feels the iame way. "I know Vic's still pretty mad and outspjoken about the way lie was Neiison said on his first trip back to New York a California Seal. "What disturbed me mdst was that The Cat didn't even give me a shout before the trate was announced. "My wife told me after she heard about it on the radio: All Francis had to do was give me a phone call to let me know it was coming. That would have been nice..... but ii never happened." Somewhat less acidic but still angry is H feyne Carleton now Skating for the WHA New England Carleton was jleading scorer for the Toronto Toros last but suddenly was by the Toros after feuding with coach Billy Harris. :carleton was especially piqued over not being selected for "earn Canada. "I have a few said Carleton. "I'm glad I'm out of Toronto; it was a super move. I don't hold any animosity toward the Toros. It isn't worth it. You. just have to grin and bear it." Tell that to Hadfield and Neiison. WHA officials have been conferring with Madison Square Garden bosses about returning to New York with a new franchise next season. Garden czars Mike Burke and Alan Cohen, both anxious to increase Garden revenue, are most anx- ious to make top dates available. WHA President Dennis Murphy realizes that his league never will obtain a big network TV contract without a club in Manhattan. Canadians have long suspected that many American sportswriters were ignorant of hockey; now they have ample confirmation from Atlanta Journal scribe Alan Truex. Discussing the proposed (and eventually rejected) NHL rules changes, Truex observed: "To be truthful about it, I have never covered ice hockey before, and I am having trouble learn- ing the old rules without these new ones coming along." Well, at least he's truthful.

(AP) Being selected as the top pitcher in the American League by winning the' Cy Young Award hasn't eliminated Jim (Catfish) Hunter's troubles with his boss, Oakland A's owner Charles 0. Finley. Hunter.said in an interview after his Cy Young award se- lection that Finley "still owes me on this year's con- tract." Asked about this and the possibility he might claim free agent status, Hunter said that and the salary matter would be discussed at a meeting between his at- torneys, Marvin Miller of the baseball players' association and Bowie Kuhn, commis- sioner of baseball. "They're going to decide what's going to happen on said. When Finley was asked about the dispute, he declined comment. "Why rain a great day for he said. Finley said he was "very proud and Hunter whom he described as "one of the finest gentlemen in the pme." The 29-year-old pitcher ap- peared mildly surprised that he won. the award over Ferguson Jenkins of Texas Rangers, who received 75 points from a 24-member pan- el of the Baseball Writers Association of America to 90 for Hunter. Hunter said he learned of his selection Wednesday after- noon when his wife told him after he returned from a fruitless deer hunt "I thought Ferguson Jenkins might get it instead of Hunter said. He pointed out that bom of them had 25 victories last season. "His team was not as good; so he had to pitch a little bet- ter, Hunter said. Hunter agreed that the Cy Young Award WES the greatest honor to come to him during hi? 10-year career hi the majors. "I think when a pitcher comes into baseball the first thing be wants to do is win 20 games, the second is to win a World Series and the third is to win the Cy Young he said. Hunter was the only pitcher named on each of the 24 ballots, and be received 12 first-place votes to 10 for Jenkins of Chatham, Out, California Angels' Nolan Ryan came in third with 29 points and one first-place vote. Cleveland's Gaytord Perry got the other first place vote and tied with Luis Tiant of Boston with eight points. Baltimore's Mike Cuellar bad six and reliever John Killer of Detroit Tigers had one. Brian Trottier paced the Broncos with three goals with singles from John Lwtz, Ben Richardson and Glen Tidey. Rick Gosselin, Jeff McDill and Blair Davidson scored fof Flin Flon. "We got off to a slow said Bronco coach Earl Ingar- field. "However, the club did get rolling in the second period." Ingarfield pointed out that the team has spent a long time on the road. "We left Lethbridge Tues- day morning for our game in stated the coach. "We left right after the game and spent the night in Prince Alberta before driving to Flin Flon Wednesday." "I was really proud of the way the fellows played after the long the coach added. The win moved the' Broncos five points ahead of Flin Flori and Winnipeg. It didn't hurt Trottier in the scoring race either. Despite being blanked against Saskatoon, Trottier now has 10 points in his last three outings. He had three goals and two assists against Brandon last Sunday. Broncos play the Bombers again tonight and then head home for a Sunday night, seven o'clock, date with Ed- monton Oil Kings. Brad Gassoff beat Pats' goalie Ed Staniowski three times to pace the Chiefs to their win: His third goal, at of the third period, was the game-winner. Kamloops was tied with Re- gina 1-1 in the first period but lead 4-3 after the second. 'Nieil..Lyseng, Allan Young and Mai anger scored the other Kamloops goals. Dave Faulkner, Jim Minor, Les Grauer and Rob Tudor scored for Regina. Kamloops outshot Regina 40-32. Regina took four of the seven minors handed out dur- ing the game and the teams split two majors. Calgary had led 2-1 after the first period but bogged down in the second to lose the edge in a 2-2 tie. Jeff Sheardown scored the winner for Brandon with 55 seconds left to play. Other goals came from Dan Bonar, Denny McLean and Doug Murray. Calgary was paced by Craig Miller's two goals in the first period. Don Ashby had the .other. Calgary goaltender Larry Hendrick stopped 29 shots, three less than Glenn Hanlon of the Wheat Kings. Brandon took five of eight minor penalties and each team was assessed a major. In Flin Flon, the Bombers grabbed an opening lead of 1-0 is the first period but lost it on three quick goals by the Bron- cos in the second. The period ended with Lethbridge leading 3-2. With Wednesday's games, Brandon moved into a first- place tie with Saskatoon in the eastern division. Both teams had 16 points.

"I feel good and I am con- spokesman Barry Burnstein said in New York. "The returns we have receiv- ed so far indicate that we will make money.... "It was a spectacular show a real happening." Video Techniques put on the boxing spectacular in some 400 closed circuit locations in Canada, where All-Canada Sports were the venders, and the United States. Burnstein explained that originally there were about 425 sites, but when the fight was postponed five weeks because of an injury to Foreman's right eye, the num- ber of locations dropped. He said the largest receipts probably would be the intake at New York's Madison Square Garden, where a near- capacity crowd of some paid a top price of US a ticket. The biggest arena showing the extravaganza was the 000-seat Houston Astrodome. National Dept. Stores CHARGEX Corner 3rd -Ave. 5th St. South ID GET IN ON THE MANY S; CHARGEX l9.9Tfc.T9.
