Win Fourth Straight Exhibition Game Philadelphia Could urprise By THE CANADIAN PRESS Philadelphia Flyers, though they've only five games under their belt, could be a surprise package in the 1970-71 National Hockey League season. The Flyers rolled to a 3-1 vic- tory Monday night in their rub- ber match with Montreal Cana- diens. It was Philadelphia's fourth straight exhibition vic- tory after losing 3-2 to the Mont- realers. Since then, they reversed the setback to the Canadiens, 4-2, blanked their Quebec Aces' farmhands 4-0 and.nipped Bos- ton Bruins 2-1. The eight points they've amassed in exhibition play equals that of Montreal and New York Rangers, 4-0 victors over the Bruins Monday, but the Philadelphians have played fewer games. Montreal has played six games, the Rangers seven. At Winnipeg Monday, third- period goals by Jean-Guy Gen- dron and Garry Peters locked the game up for Philadelphia as the Flyers victimized Montreal goalie Ken Dryden who played the entire game. TAKE EARLY LEAD Lew Morrison gave Philadel- phia a 1-0 first-period lead be- fore Montreal's John Ferguson got the equalizer on a seconcU period power play. Ferguson was sitting out a penalty when Gendron notched the winner. The third period developed Cassius Granted Licence NEW YORK (AP) Muham- mad Ali, the former world heavyweight boxing champion, was granted a boxing licence Monday by a unanimous vote of the New York State Athletic Commission. Ali, who used his Muslim name in preference to Cassius "lay, had applied for a licence Thursday and took a physical examination. He had been as- sured that a licence would be granted. Ali was suspended by the New York Commission in April, 1967, after he refused to accept induc- ion into the Army. He later was convicted of draft evasion and sentenced to five years in irison, a conviction now being appealed to the Supreme Court. A New York court ruled re- cently that AE should be given a "icence in New York. Minor Hockey Registrations Minor hockey registrations rill get underway this evening at Adams Ice Centre beginning at Pee wee registration will :ake place tonight at as Til! a mass practise until eight o'clock. During the same hours Thursday boys may register and practise while Saturday the times are between 9-11 a.m. Bantams take to the ice to- night and Thursday from eight to and on Sturday 9-11 a.m. and p.m. The midget and juvenile workouts and registrations are set for tonight tlie same times Thursday and Saturday. All players are asked to bring helmets, gloves and pro- tective equipment, into a donnybrook as Montreal defenceman Terry Harper and rookie Pierre Bouchard traded punches with Flyers' Ed Van Impe and Serge Bernier. At New York, Ted Irvine, Dave Balon, Bob Nevin and Don Luce shared the Ranger scoring as the defending Stanley Cup champion Bruins suffered their third exhibition loss. In the only other game, Pitts- burgh Penguins rode Bryan Hextall's two-goal effort to a 5-1 win over Oakland Seals at Brantford, Ont. Duanne Rupp, Val Fonteyne and Lowell Mac- Donald also scored for the Pen- guins before Harry Howell snapped the shutout with Oak- land's lone goal late in the game. Montreal defenceman Jacques Laperriere returned home from Intrepid Triumphs America's Cup Stays NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) It was another breeze for the United States in the America's Cup' yachting classic and tile question is: Who'll be mak- ing waves as challengers in the future? After Intrepid beat back Aus- tralia's Gretel II by one minute and 44 seconds, or roughly 10 boat lengths, Monday to take the best-of-seven series four races to one, speculation turned to the probable 1973 challenger for the Cup which has never left America. A spokesman for the Gretel II assured the New York Yacht Club, the Cup's governing body, that Australia would come back for another crack at the treas- ured 119-year-old trophy. The French, who challenged for the first tune this year and lost in the preliminaries to Gretel, were expected to be back under pen magnate Baron Marcel Bich. Santo Benched After Threat CHICAGO (AP) The Chi- cago Sun-Times said today Chicago Cubs third baseman Ron Santo was removed from the lineup in New York Mon- day night, apparently because of an anonymous threat against his life. Santo did not take the field for batting practice before the Cubs game against New York Mets. Instead, the Sun-Times said in a story by sports writer Jerome H o 11 z m a n, Santo changed into street clothes and said he was re- turning to Chicago because he was not feeling well, and on orders of Dr. Jake Suker, the Cubs' team physician. The star third baseman is expected to miss the remain- ing games of the season, the newspaper added. Cub officials in New York refused to confirm or deny that a threat had been made on Santo's life. Holtzman gave this account of events preceding the game, which the Mets won 6-3: At least six detectives were in the Cub clubhouse prior to the game, obviously there to guard Santo. DETECTIVES RIDE BUS The detectives rode out to Shea Stadium on the Cub team bus, but were not offi- cially identified by Cub offi- cials. Holtzman said a fan, appar- ently angered because the Cubs didn't win the National League pennant, is reported to have written an anonymous letler advising Sanlo he would .be shot when he took the field for Monday night's game. About 40 minutes before game time, he said, Cub vice- president John Holland was called into Durocher's club- house office. The meeting lasted for more than a half hour and Santo twice was called into the room. The S'un-Times said the FBI in Chicago confirmed that a threatening letter had been sent to Santo. However, the FBI denied to The Associated Press that it had confirmed such a letter was sent to the Cubs' captain. British yachtsman Eric Max- well also is interested and a West German group has been reported watching the race with interest. The yacht club has 90 days to anounce participants for 1973. M o n d a y 's final race was nose-to-nose two thirds around the 24.3-mile course here. The wind and the steady hand of helmsman Bill Ficker took charge as the Californian bested Australia's Jim Hardy at his own game on wild 4.5-mile home-stretch. But it was close, Gretel II took a brief early lead, lost it promptly again and trailed by 44, 43, and 39 seconds at the first three marks. But getting help from a fading northwest- erly wind that had dropped to seven knots, Gretel II, once 10 lengths astern, was suddenly even. Hardy could have shaken Ficker's hand, but he couldn't get the vital overlap as Ficker rode past him. Winnipeg Monday to have his ailing right knee treated. He in- jured it Sunday night and is not expected to play against the Maple Leafs in Toronto Wednes- day. Veteran goaltender Roger Crorier came to terms with Buf- falo Sabres, signing a two-year contract for an undisclosed sal- ary. Crazier, 28, played six sea- sons with Detroit Red Wings and was rookie of the year in 1964-05. The exhibition schedule sumes tonight with Vancouver Canucks at home against Chi- cago Black Hawks, Detroit going against the Rangers at Kitchener, Ont.. and Philadel- phia playing Oakland at Osh- awa, Ont.
