Bowman will stay MONTREAL (AP) - Scotty Bowman says he has decided to stay on as coach of the Stanley Cup champion Montreal Canadiens of the National Hockey League. There had been speculation he would resign in the wake of changes in the team ownership and administration. Molson Breweries of Canada Ltd. bought the team. "All the points in contention are solved, and I'm now able to say I will continue as coach next season," Bowman said Monday after a meeting with Irving Grundman,, who will serve as administrative director during the coming season. Grundman said he had "the greatest respect for Scotty Bowman and, as far as I'm concerned, I was never worried he'd leave us." Bowman signed a two-year coaching contract, one year longer than customary, earlier this summer at a reported salary in excess of $100,000. Football fan charged LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) '- A football fan who allegedly attacked an official at Saturday's Kansas-Texas A&M game has been charged with two counts of battery in connection with the incident. David C. Dwyer, 30, of Wichita, Kan., pleaded innocent to the charges today in an appearance in Douglas County District Court. His trial was set for Oct. 5 and he was released on $1,500 signature bond. Dwyer told the court that officials were "making a mountain out of a molehill." Douglas County Attorney Mike Malone said the county would accept an offer by Big Eight Conference officials to cover all legal costs in pursuing the prosecution of Dwyer. Navratilova ailing BOSTON (AP) Ailing Martina Navratilova won't get to challenge U.S. Open champ Chris Evert tonight when the best-of-five championship round of the World Team Tennis playoffs opens at Walter Brown Arena. The Boston Lobsters entertain the Los Angeles Strings and Navratilova is nursing an ailing left shoulder that may keep her out of play until the second playoff match on Saturday. - jjTK ri. tin CAC golf picture bright Muhammad Ali leans back on the ropes and talks to the fans after finishing his last hard workout Future still in shadows Spinks in the limelight NEW ORLEANS (AP) - "I knew I was gonna be somebody," said Leon Spinks. "If it was a drunk, I was gonna be the best drunk that ever was." Well the kid that grew up in a St. Louis ghetto is somebody. He isn't the best drunk that ever was ... he isn't even a drunk. He isn't the best fighter that ever was, either ... but he is the heavyweight champion of the world, the conqueror of Muhammad Ali. LEON SPINKS knows where he came from, what he is and is learning what he can be. "I'd like to be a world figure but I'd like to be a world figure my way," said Spinks, who, in a way, presently is mainly a figure of curiosity, a kind of fate-made freak who beat a living legend but in the minds of many people can't do it again Friday night in the Superdome. Spinks is a man under pressure, and his reaction to the pressure is a fatalistic one. "I don't do any predicting," he said of his rematch with Ali. "The best man wins. The Man upstairs says you ain't gonna win, you ain't gonna win." BUT WHILE the spectre of defeat doesn't seem to frighten him, he is spurred by the knowledge that a victory takes him farther up the road from poverty, a station in life that shaped him but one he never wants to visit again. BY FRED STABLEYJR Staff Writer Year-in, year-out when you're looking for the teams to beat in Capital Area Conference (CAC) golf it's a safe bet to start with East Lansing High. And, that's the case again in 1978 for Coach Paul Schultz Trojans. FOLLOWLNG A fine 12-5 dual meet record last fall, East Lansing returns seven lettermen and figures to be the team to beat. However, defending champion Grand Ledge, always-tough Waverly and an improved Eastern squad could make things interesting. Leading the East Lansing efforts this fall should be seniors Kenton Kurth, Vic Whipp, Chad Vincent and Jeff Sparks and juniors Mike Fagan, Paul Kruse and Chris Page. THE COMETS of Grand Ledge, coached by Bob Clavette, had a combined record of 26-2 last season in varsity and junior varsity competition. The varsity tied for seventh in the Class A finals. Back from that team are regulars Nick Nicol and Steve Sierawski. while seniors Jeff Wagner, Todd Basso and Dave Feldpausch are also returning. Coach Bob McKnight has an impressive record of 52 wins and 12 losses in his five seasons with the Waverly Warriors, and in seniors Chuck Poh! and Dan Rienstra he has two top players to build this year's team around. He's also counting on senior Dave Millisor, junior John Pohl and sophomore Dean Holland. THE EASTERN Quakers, coached by Tom Penrod, have five lettermen back and figure to be competitive. The returning golfers are seniors Brian Kangas, Kit Carson and Rob Lisk and juniors Bill Kost and Steve Wakulsky. Holt High was only 5-9 a year ago under first-year coach Bill Dowell, but the Rams were young and mentioned as the team of the future. Of the four returning lettermen, only Mark Olsen is a senior while No. 1 man Tim Smith, all-CAC performer. Steve Scott and Bill Post are juniors. Coach Pat Holland's Everett Vikings were fifth in the CAC meet a year ago and they have high hopes of moving up this season. Seniors Tim Dell and John Kanellitsas and junior Mike Kosloski head the returnees. SEXTON HIGH will be a young team for Coach Dick Bates with two seniors of little experience, Paul Anderson and Pat Burke, two juniors in John Curry and Chris Hurlbutt and sophomore Kris Nicholoff carrying the Big Red hopes. The Hill Panthers finished with a 2-12 record last fall and don't appear to be much stronger this season. Coach Lary Hill has only two senior letter-men back in Chris Markoff and Dave Templar while he's looking to senior Todd Payne and junior Mike Whitman for help. The CAC golf meet has been changed this year from Forest Akers Golf Course to the Country Club of Lansing on Oct. 9.

Giacomin told a news conference Tuesday that he decided to leave the Red Wings organization despite an offer to stay on as a sort of good will ambassador. "The Detroit offer was a pretty good one but it could not put enough money on the dinner table. I'm excited about this new job because it is getting me back into hockey, he explained. The 39-year-old goalie was placed on waivers by the Wings last January and was offered a management job by the club. ALLEVA'S SPORTS & MARINE 2421 N.
