Opens training camp next week NEW YORK (AP) There will be a nervous first-year man in the Houston Aeros' World Hockey Association training camp next week. His name? Gordie Howe, the I man who scored 786 regular I season goals and assists inj a sparkling 25-ysai" career in the National Hockey League with Detroit Red Wings; who has been retired for the past years; and who earned 300 his rookie season but signed for over million with the Aeros.

Yes. "My worry is that after ths great treatment the people in Houston gave me, I wouldn't be able to fulfill their ex- said the grey- haired Howe, 45, who stopped in New York on a promotional tour. "The people in Houston ars so organized. Inside of a week, I had my boys sign their con- tracts, I signed mine, had my I other children in a good school, and had bought a houss. The people are just great he I said. j "My as Howe called them, are his sons Mark and Marty. Both were stars in jun- ior hockey last year, and when the Aeros drafted the teen-age I 19 years old, Mark's enabled the senior Howe to realize a dream he had I nurtured for a number of years: to play pro hockey with his sons. Fulfillment of that wish led Howe away from the Detroit or- ganization after a long-time ca- reer with the club. After his re- tirement in 1971, Gordie took a front-office job with ths team. It was downhill from there. "I wasn't doing much aside from answering fan mail, wasn't in on any major deci- sions as I thought I would be. wasn't recalled Howe. EDMONTON (CP) Bobby Taylor today said the reason for" his being cut given by Ed- monton Eskimos of the Western Football Conference was a 'bunch of crap." Taylor, 30, a 12-year %'eteran of the Canadian Football League, was placed on waivers Wednesday without recall by the club who said he lacked speed. After playing junior football in Calgary, Taylor spent five years with Calgary Stampeders before being traded to Toronto Argonauts in 1966. He was the leading pass receiver and an all-star in the league's eastern conference in 1966, 1987 and 1968. A flanker, Taylor said he was cut because of an incid- cident involving quarterback Bruce Lemmernian in a hotel room at Regina after the club took a 28-27 loss to Saskatchew- an Roughriders Monday. "I took a swing at him (Lem- merman) but I didn't hit him, I Taylor said. "Maybe I made a mistake, I was still upset from losing the game." He said the club's publicly announced reason that he lack- ed speed was an excuse and "I was cut because of what happened in that Lemmerman incident." Taylor said the incident was triggered because of a re- mark made by Lemmer- man and the quarterback's at- titude to the loss. "He said to me at the half that we should put our personal differences aside. I didn't know we had Taylor said. "Then it all started working on me. the last guy he looks to and it became so ob- vious that it was a strictly per- sonal thing with him." ston wants straight TORONTO (CP) Goalie Eddie Johnston would like the record straight regarding his hockey future.

"They'd wonder what kind of a guy they were getting for a goalie." Johnston became Leafs prop- erty after the end of last season in a trade with Boston Bruins. The Leafs assumed his Boston contract which has one year re- maining. E. J. WILL STAY "But I have every intention oi signing another contract in To- ronto, if Leafs want to keep me. I'd like to stay in the NHL and will, if I'm not forced out." Forced out? "Well, I would be, wouldn't I, if I c.ould make a lot more money in the WHA than I could in the said Johnston. The 38-year-old goalie said he believed the Boston reports that he had already made up his mind to join the WHA may have stemmed from some idle remarks made at a recent party in Boston where he met some of his former Bruins team mates who now are with the Whalers. Lemmerman said he did not want to comment on the in- cident. 'I'm sorry to see Bobby go. What happened shook me up I didn't go running to the coach about it or anything. It just happened and I'd prefer to "orget about it." Ray Jauch, head coach, said ;he club had been looking for more speed on the outside for some time and Taylor "was not cut because of any one thing." He said Taylor lacked over- all speed and "we simply felt we had to make a change. He did a good job for us but Taylor isn't the type of man who is going to be happy sitting on the bench so we decided to release him." Eskimos attempted to trade Taylor Wednesday without suc- cess. Jauch said the move also was made because of the emer- gence of John Farlinger as a defensive back which would al- low him to spring Gary Lefeb- vre to replace Taylor for the game here Saturday against Montreal Alouettes.
