H. L. AS REFEREE Claims Officials Get No Backing MONTREAL, Feb. 14 OD Referee Eddie Powers, who officiated a game in which Toe Blake, Montreal coach, subsequently was fined $200, quit the National Hockey league today. He said he was fed up because the officials were not backed by the N. H. L. management Carl Voss, referee-in-chief, said that Powers walked into N. H. L. headquarters today, asked that Voss be called out of a conference, and told him, "I quit as of now." Voss said Powers did not see League President Clarence Campbell, and walked out after saying that two secretaries in the N. H. L. office could act as formal witnesses of his resignation. 7 Years in N. II. L. Powers joined the N. H. L. even years ago after referee-ing in the Western league. He was believed to be earning between $15,000 and $20,000 a year. Blake was fined by Campbell yesterday for casting aspersions on Powers' refereeing of the Jan. 31 game, which Toronto won, 6 to 3. Voss appeared taken aback by Powers' sudden resignation. "Everyone in the N. H. L. had a ereat deal of respect for Eddie." Voss said. "He was an official with a ereat deal of courage. You could call him an outstanding official." Second to Quit Powers is the second referee to auit the N. H. L. in a huff in three years. Roy Red Storev resiened following a near-riot in Chicago Stadium over alleged failure to call two fouls against the Montreal Canadiens in a Stanley cup semi-final match with the Chicago Black Hawks. Two- goals stemmed from the questionable plays and eliminated Chicago. Campbell, who was a spectator at the game in the spring of 1960, made a public statement to the effect that Storey "blew" both decisions, and Storey quit. N 'We'll Get Along' MONTREAL. Feb. 15 (CPU Clarence Campbell, National Hockey league president, said today he "regrets" the resignation of Referee Eddie Powers, whom he termed one of the two most experienced referees in the league. "But, we'll get along without him. It might be gratuitous for me to say so, but he must have known the difficulties his resignation would cause. Maybe that was one factor."

The big turnover was brought about by the appearance in both South and North section eliminations, held the last two weeks, of a number of exceptionally capable newcomers to the amateur ranks. Only Rory O'Shea, Richard Gosha, and Johnny Nate Jr., of last year's open division champions remain in the running for city titles and places on the Chicago team which will compete with teams from 30 out of town centers in the Tournament of Champions in the Stadium on Feb. 25, 26, and 27. O'Shea Fights On! O'Shea, who last year was the South section welterweight king and went on to win the national Golden Gloves championship in the Stadium Finals against Wade Smith of the Billings, Mont., Gazette team, retained his South section title.

Nate Now a Bantam Gosha, 20 year old Drive-In manager, holds the 1962 National A. A. U. 165 pound championship won after losing in the quarter-finals of the Golden Gloves Tournament of Champions. He is Chicago's defending light heavyweight titlehold-er and on Monday must meet Johnny Farmer, a protege of Johnny Coulon's. Farmer, who is 17 years old, won the South section 160 pound novice title last year. Johnny Nate Jr., winner of the flyweight championship last year, moved up a notch to the bantamweight class and took the South section title. His op ponent in the City Finals Mon day will be 20 year old Felix Aldaco, a Texan born of Mexican parents. Johnny Nate's re linquished 112 pound title on the south side was taken by his brother, Rickey, who was the South section's 112 pound novice champion last year. Rickey last year beat Ru dolph Albach of the Gary Y. M. C. A. for the City flyweight novice championship and on Monday night the two youngsters will battle again, this time for the open division crown and a chance to appear in the big Sta dium show. The North section tourna ment which ended before a ca pacity house Wednesday night, gave Gosha, Albach, Aldaco, and Murray some tough teammates in Raymond Plyman, Coulon gym featherweight; Victor Medina, C. Y. O. lightweight; Walter Clark, C. Y. O. middleweight, and Curtis Whitehead, Duncan Y. M. C. A. heavyweight. Plyman vs. Petrecca Plyman, whose 126-pound title bout Wednesday night with Archie Bailey was the outstanding clash of the brilliant 20-bout show, will meet Nick Petrecca in Monday's title engagement. Medina will face Parry Dixon for the lightweight crown, Clark must meet James Davis, the S o u t h ' s middleweight champion, and Whitehead must face Mark McNee-ley who was the South section's novice champion last year. BRUINS' 2 T0 1 VICTORY RUNS STREAK TO SIX Canadiens Fall on Late Goal MONTREAL, Feb. 14 W Dean Prentice's goal with less than 90 seconds left gave the surging Boston Bruins a 2 to 1 National Hockey league victory over the Montreal Canadiens to night. The victory stretched the Bruins' unbeaten string to six games three victories and three ties and moved them to within two points of the fifth-place New York Rangers. Prentice, traded by New York to Boston last week, broke a 1 to 1 tie at 18:32 on a 15-foot slap of a rebound of a shot by Bob Leitcr. Jerry Toppazzini scored Boston's first goal, midway of the second period while Boston was a man short. Bobby Rousseau scored for Montreal on a penalty shot early in the third period. The loss left the Canadiens three games behind the league leading Chicago Black Hawks in their quest for a sixth successive N. H. L. championship. It also left them without the services of their outstanding center, Henri Richard, who pulled a groin muscle and is expected to be out of the next few games, including Saturday night's game with the Hawks.

Tulsa, Okla., Feb. 14 (,7) Tulsa survived a Bradley threat which whittled away a 13-point lead to squeeze out a 67 to 62 victory over the Braves in a Missouri Valley conference basketball game tonight. It was the first time Tulsa had beaten Bradley since 1956. Tulsa led, 48 to 35, with 14 minutes left when Bradley be- 'Coach' with Losing Record Is Arrested Beverly Hills, Cal., Feb. 14 (TPD A husky ex-convict who posed as Jack Faulkner, Denver Bronco football coach, was in custody today on charges of forgery and defrauding an innkeeper. Alfred N. Faulkner, 40, had registered at a hotel on Feb. 7 as the football coach and left Monday without paying. He also was sought for cashing two checks, one for $500 and another for $60, using Jack Faulkner's name. The checks were drawn against a nonexistent bank account. Propose Bills to Ban Illinois Pro Boxing Chicago Tribune Press Service! Springfield, 111., Feb. 14 Bills were introduced in the senate and house today to outlaw professional boxing in Illinois. Sponsors are two so-called liberal Democrats, State Sen. Paul Simon of Troy and State Rep. Anthony Scariano of Park Forest. ' The sponsors, who have not had notable success with their legislation in previous sessions, contend that boxing is unique in having "as its aim physical damage to an opponent." However, their bills would not prohibit amateur boxing, such as Golden Gloves. "It makes no sense for Illinois to spend money on mental health, while at the same time we legalize and encourage one man to injure another man's brains," their statement said. They asserted that the underworld plays too great a role in professional boxing. gan a full court press, which scored quick points for the Braves, while Tulsa went 52 minutes without a field goal. Joe Strawder of Bradley tied it at 55 to 55 with 7k minutes left. But three successive baskets by Tulsa's Bill Kusleika gave the Hurricanes a lead they never lost. Tulsa played keep-away in the hectic closing seconds and picked up a couple of easy lay- ups and crucial free throws. The victory avenged an earlier 72 to 58 trouncing Tulsa suffered at Bradley. It was Tulsa's 13th victory of the season against 6 losses and gave the Hurricanes a 3-5 conference record. FORMER STAR TACKLE WILL ASSIST ALLEN Assigned to Work with Line BY GEORGE STRICKLER Joe Stydahar, one of the all-time greats of professional football, returned to the Chicago Bears yesterday. Owner-Coach George Halas announced appointment of the former tackle as defensive line coach. Signing of Stydahar completes the Bears' coaching staff, on which some realignment was forced when Clark Shaugh-nessy suddenly resigned last December. George Allen, an assistant to Shaughnessy, was moved up to head defensive coach two days ago. i::th Against Hushes Stydahar's specific assignment will be to bring the Bears up from 13th place in the league's defensive statistics against rushing. For the most part this will involve concentration on the basics of individual line play. "Opposing runners averaged 4.7 yards per play against us last fall," Halas said. "We want to bring our running defense up to our pass defense, in which we led the league. We are confident Stydahar can help us. Nobody ever ran very far against Joe." The first lineman ever selected on the first round in the annual player draft, Stydahar THE PROPRIETOR of a noted Chicago luncheon beanery had given scout's honor that the place had been fumigated of press agents. But it didn't turn out that way at all. Because along with the lamb chops arrived Miss Anne Hudson, an intricately sculptured blonde, to slide into an adjacent chair. Well, this 20-20 appetite is not going to take off and desert a pair of lamb chops even if the press agent moored alongside happens to be Dick Axman or Ben Bentley. So Miss Hudson retained a captive audience. And isn't it terrible, the dirty, business these Russians- are up to? gasped Miss Hudson. Just what did we members of the fourth estate's sweat shirt division intend to do about this Red villainy? Then, to the full extent of her marathon vocabulary, Miss Hudson explained: "This is the time of year for ice figure skating. Next year, at this time, shapely girls and lithe boys will be at Innsbruck, Austria, skating for Olympic crowns." Miss Hudson shook her blonde locks, in the manner of a TkwA. jp (David QoixdorL TWTOW THAT MISS HUDSON had spoken her bit for democ- Bradley 621 B F Herndon 7 0-0 Heiden'rch 1 1-1 Strawder 10 2-3 West 1 0-0 Donley 3 1-2 Hall 1 1-3 Williams 3 3-3 Day 0 0-0 Moore 1 CO Tulsa P 4 Kusleika 4 King 3 Berke 1 Gripado 1 Hevelone 3 Kelly 2 0 0 671 B F 7 3 3 4 23 5 4 8 5 13 4 5 5 1 0-1 27 8 12 18 26 15-23 10 Free throws made and ottempted.

Not in M. But by '68, golly! Huh, just like Frank Carey's been warning us. NOW THIS SITUATION is not to be taken lightly, chastised Miss Hudson. She said: "We in the United States are losing out to the Russians because we are guilty of shama-teurism; that's a word used by my boss John Harris of the Ice Capades to indicate that this so-called amateur competition is nothing but a sham! "See, in the United States the parents must pay heavily during the years and years it takes to develop a figure skater. The Russians are subsidizing their skaters. "As soon as the Russians find sufficient coaches, they'll have 100 figure skaters for every one found in America. It will not cost those skaters a penny to become a champion. The Russian government will pay for it all. We'll find ourselves left at the post." Tears welled in the pretty eyes, and dropped onto the shambles of the lamb chops. She gasped: "When the Russians dominate figure skating, what will happen to American prestige?" And to the John Harris Ice Capades, we added. racy, she began some small talk about the Ice Capades. Did we know they would run in Chicago Stadium from March 12 thru March 24? Did we know that the 1963 edition of the Ice Capades are dedicated to the American astronauts? And that it presents a snappy number, "West Pointettes on Parade," in which long limbed gals wear drill sergeant's uniforms except that no drill sergeant ever was seen in one of those abbreviated white skirts! Astronauts? West Pointettes? Yes, eveh a special salute to that Yankee Doodle Dandy, George M. Cohan: "In the '63 Ice Capades, all systems are GO!" said Miss Hudson. The rest of America may be complacent, but those Russians are in for a surprise if they think they are going to find John H. Harris asleep at the switch. PEARSON AND DARK LEAD IN MIAMI GOLF Miami, Feb. 14 (LTD Manager Alvin Dark, four-time champion and manager of the San Francisco Giants, shot a three-over-par 73 today to tie little Albie Pearson of the Los Angeles Angels for the first round lead in the annual baseball players golf tournament. Pearson and Dark both shot five bogeys against two birdies over the Miami Springs course. The tournament runs 72 holes, thru Sunday. Manager Freddie Hutchinson of the Cincinnati Reds and Billy Herman, coach for the Boston Red Sox, scored 74s to tie for third place. Behind them was another tie at 75 between Jackie Brandt, Baltimore Oriole outfielder, and Jim Hearn, former New York Giant and Philadelphia Phillies pitcher. JOE STYDAHAR joined the Bears in 1936 after having starred against the Detroit Lions in the Chicago Tribune Charities, Inc., College All-Star game. Six-feet four, 240 pounds, and an All-American at West Virginia, he was on all-pro selection four consecutive years. He played nine years for the Bears with two years out to command a gun crew on a carrier during the war and was a member of three world championship teams, 1940, 1941, and 1946. Follows Shaughnessy Again His return to the Bears yesterday marked the second time he has replaced Shaughnessy on a coaching staff. At the end of three seasons as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Rams, he took over when, Shaughnessy was fired in 1950. The Bears whipped him, 24 to 20, in his debut as a head coach, but he rallied the Rams to win the western division title, only to lose to Cleveland, 30 to 28, in the championship play-oft.
