Joe is trying hard to Kapp off strike By MARTHA BATEMAN New York Times Service There are probably only a few players in the National Football League who have heard of United States district judge William T. Sweigert. But within weeks, everyone connected with the sport will know his name. By that time. Sweigert will have ruled on the N.F.L. Players Association's most significant freedom issues in an antitrust suit brought in San Francisco by Joe Kapp. the former Vik- ing super bowl quarterback. "If Judge Sweigert decides in our said Kapp's attorney, "the association has won the strike." The case marks the first time that anyone has been willing to take on the N.F.L. and stick with it. Other players have filed suits, but most have fallen by the wayside after initial skir- mishes with the league's powerful legal guns. The Kapp case began two years ago. Kapp had been playing for the Boston (now New England) Patriots until he was blackballed by the N.F.L. because he refused to sign a standard players contract, which includes the option clause, the so called Rozelle Rule and the reserve clause. These provisions make it impossible for a player to have any say in his career, and has no recourse if he dis- agrees with the decisions made for him. Most players sign a standard contract blind- ly because they have no choice. Because the players association is not directly in- volved in Kapp's suit, it has been forgotten by most of the sports press during the hectic weeks of the strike and "cool- ing off period." But the San Francisco court action was obviously an important factor in the owners' decision not to negotiate demands to eliminate the reserve clause and the Rozelle Rule. Why give in at the bargaining table when there's a chance to win "Most players don't realize that the existence of the Kapp case made it almost impossi- ble to negotiate the freedom said Dallas quarter- back. Roger Staubach. "I have felt all along that federal court is where these things should be decided." In the Kapp suit. Judge Sweigert has been asked to decide the legality of the draft, the option clause, tampering rules, the Rozelle Rule and the standard players contract, which embodies the reserve clause. Team Canada spotlight shines on Howe family "The Herald' Sports EDMONTON (CP) Things changed Tuesday for Bobby Hull, Paul Henderson, Frank Mahovlich and Gerry Cheevers of Team Canada. They got some privacy after being surrounded by reporters during the first two days of workouts for Team Canada 74. The reason was a 46-year- old man with greying hair and two talented young sons. Gor- die Howe arrived at he didn't even scrimmage. Howe and the boys, members of Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Association, watched the afternoon scrimmage from a press box. Howe, only six pounds over his playing weight although he hasn't been on skates all summer, stepped on the ice in time to engage in wind sprints and stops and calculated to make 46-year- olds wish they had stayed in retirement. Gordie asked coach Billy Harris if he could scrimmage, but accepted the decision that he might pull a groin muscle in preparation for the eight- game series with Russia that begins Sept. 17 in Quebec City. Harris said no. "He's the said Howe, a trifle disappointed, "but I haven't had a groin pull in so long. A comparative youngster, Johnny McKenzie, 36, was out- standing in the scrimmage with three goals. He also levelled Pat Price with a vicious check on his first shift and helped Andre Lacroix set up Bobby Hull for two goals. As training camp opened, McKenzie was overlooked de- spite an impressive National Hockey League record with Boston Bruins and two productive but injury-plagued years in the World Hockey Association. "I'm in he said. "I've got things to prove." In the dressing room, he was reminded that a big play in Team Canada 72's victory over the Russians was a slash by Bobby Clarke that ended in an ankle injury to brilliant centre Valery Kharmalov. "I don't play like that any said the rugged McKenzie. "But, just in case, what's his McKenzie and Hull both praised Lacroix for his play. The nimble centre, who lacks straight-ahead speed, played briefly with Hull when they were team-mates at Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League. "He can hold the puck until the wingers catch said Hull, who admits he would like to play with Lacroix if things continue to go well. Golden Suns play Taber Golden Suns, the newest entry in the Alberta Junior Hockey League, will get their first taste of action this weekend. In what club president Pat Shimbashi describes as a possible preview of the Alberta-B.C. final this year, the Spokane Jets will be the guests of the Golden Suns. Jets are also a new junior club and will play in the B.C. Ju- nior Hockey League. The two clubs will meet Saturday night at eight o'clock and again Sunday afternoon at two. Taber coach Gary Hull is currently putting his charges through vigorous daily workouts at the Taber Civic Centre, the site of the weekend games, and is very pleased with what he has seen to date. Golden Suns have a number of former Lethbridge Longhorns in camp including Longhorns top rookie Randy Joevenazzo and high-flying winger Bernie Syrenne. Flyers hit with suit for million PHILADELPHIA (AP) The Stanley Cup champion Philadelphia Flyers have been sued for million by former goalie Michel Belhumeur, who charges they failed to pay him in playoff dividends. Belhumeur, who played last season with the American Hockey League's Richmond Robins, the Flyers' No. 1 farm club, filed suit Aug. 8, claiming he was not paid guaran- teed to each member of the Stanley Cup team by the National Hockey League and promised by the Flyers. The suit contends Belhumeur. 25, and Philadelphia "had agreed that the plaintiff would receive a full share of playoff bonus money equal to that of any other hockey player on the team, whether or not the plaintiff was on the active roster of the Philadelphia Flyers or Richmond or any other team owned or controll- ed by the Flyers." Flyers" general manager Keith Allen has refused to discuss the case, as has the club's attorney. TheVolvol64 AN EXPENSIVE CAR THAT ISN'T A LUXURY TO OWN. The Volvo 164 is far too sensible an automobile to ever be considered a luxury. Its orthopedically-designed seats, for example, are faced in leather. Not for any exotic reason. Leather simply wears better than other materials. And while the 164's ten-outlet air conditioning-heating system might seem rather lavish at first, it is essential in providing both driver and passengers with complete climate control, that even includes a heated driver's seat. Step on the accelerator and the aggressive 3 liter, fuel-injected engine may also leave the impression of luxury. At least until you discover the economy of its six cylinders. Then, of course, there are the qualities that make the 164 a Volvo. Such as disc brakes on all four wheels. Energy-absorbing front and rear ends. And a single unit body so strong its roof can support the weight of over seven tons. Impressive, but hardly what one would classify as luxuries. So if you Ye thinking of investing in an expensive car, we suggest you visit your nearest Volvo dealer and examine the virtues of the Volvo 164. We think you'll agree with us that it would be a luxury to own anything else.
