The trophy was the precursor to the Paul Bunyan Axe, a 6-foot wooden ax awarded to the winner of the Wisconsin-Minnesota game since 1948. UW sports information director Steve Malchow and his staff found the trophy in a water-stained briefcase while cleaning a storage room on the fourth floor of Camp Randall Stadium. No one at the department is sure why Wisconsin has the Slab of Bacon, because the Gophers won games against the Badgers in 1946 and 1947, just before the introduction of the Axe. It is possible that the 12-by-18-by-l-inch slab of black walnut has been around the UW Athletic Department since 1945, when the Badgers beat Minnesota, 26-12, in Minneapolis. Scores of Wisconsin-Minnesota games through 1970, when the Badgers beat the Gophers, 39-14, have been painted on the trophy, which was made by R.B.

Fouch of Minneapolis in 1930. The trophy features a wooden bas-relief of a football on one side and the word "BACON" carved into the top and bottom. Depending on how it is displayed, it shows either an or on the ball. Malchow said the trophy probably would be put in an exhibit of football memorabilia in a Camp Randall Stadium office.

Crawford, 33, signed a deal believed to be worth $250,000 a year for four years. He leaves the Toronto Maple Leafs' American Hockey League affiliate in St. John's and replaces Pierre Page. Page, who was also general manager, was let go this spring after the Nordiques missed the playoffs for the sixth time in seven years. Pierre Lacroix succeeded Page as general manager.

Philadelphia tried to bolster its defense by signing forward Craig MacTavish, 35, who confirmed the contract was similar to a two-year deal the New York Rangers had offered him for about $800,000 a year. MacTavish, coming off the Rangers' first Stanley Cup championship in 54 years, joined the Flyers as an unrestricted free agent. The 13-year veteran is considered among the premier penalty killers in the league. EZES135ZZ3 Erik Hanson, who has pitched and played the infield for Deer-field High School, said he plans to play baseball at Madison Area Techincal College next season. Deerfield qualified for the Division 3 state tournament.

SCOUT NEPALI BACKPACKER WEST INDIES BRYCE CHINA CLIPPER TREKKER WORLD TOUR RAINIER INTERNATIONAL YOSEMITE GILBRALTER .20 OFF ALL LURES 20 OFF ALL New York Knicks all-star center Patrick Ewing underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Wednesday in New York, the National Basketball Association team announced. The surgery was performed by Knicks team physician Norman Scott to clean out loose cartilage. In 6 to 8 weeks, Ewing, 31, will begin swimming and biking to strengthen the knee. He had similar procedures done in 1986 and 1989 but has missed only five games the last five years. Meanwhile, the Knicks exercised the contract option on reserve forward Anthony Bonner but released backup guard Rolando Blackman, 35.

Cliff Rozier, Golden State's first-round draft pick, out of Louisville, will get Hall of Fame tutelage in becoming an NBA center. Eight-time all-star center Bob Lanier has joined the Warriors as an assistant coach. Green Bay signs Thompson, Dukes The Green Bay Packers announced they have signed former University of Wisconsin kicker Rich Thompson who had a tryout last year with the National Football League team and former Atlanta Falcons center Jamie Dukes. Dukes, 30, who is 6-foot-l and 292 pounds, started all 16 games each of the last five seasons for Atlanta. He was a second alternate for the Pro Bowl in 1993, but the Falcons waived him in May and he worked out for the Packers in June.

The former Florida State lineman, who also has played left and right guard for the Falcons, had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee in January. The Packers, hoping to bolster the offensive line since first-round draft pick Aaron Taylor was hurt, also are talking with guard Guy Mclntyre, a free agent who used to play for San Francisco. The Chicago Bears' second all-time leading rusher has decided to retire. Neal Anderson, 29, an unrestricted free agent whom the Bears decided not to re-sign, quit after eight seasons. Succeeding Walter Payton, the NFL's all-time rushing leader, Anderson earned four Pro Bowl appearances.

But his production declined in recent seasons because of injuries. "I could have definitely played, but it just wasn't in my heart," said Anderson, who was paid $1.6 million by the Bears last year, when he rushed for 646 yards and four touchdowns on 202 carries. He also caught 31 passes for 160 yards but lost his starting job to Tim Worley in the second half of last season. Anderson, a first-round draft pick out of Florida in 1986, winds up his career with 6,116 rushing yards, 302 catches and 71 TDs. Seattle waived eight-year veteran linebacker Kevin Murphy, who started 10 games for the Seahawks last season.

Tour de France re-enters England Francisco Cabello of Spain broke away from Emmanuel Magnien of France with about 10 miles to go and won the fourth stage of the Tour de France cycling race at Brighton, England. It was the first Tour de France stage in Britain in 20 years and the first ever won by Cabello, who led the main pack for virtually the entire 122-mile race from Dover to Brighton. Cabello broke to the front just 33 miles into the stage and won in 5 hours, 12 minutes, 53 seconds. Magnien was the runner-up in the stage, 20 seconds back, after edging Flavio Vanzella of Italy at the finish line. Vanzella, whose Italian-Belgian GB-MG team won Tuesday's team time trail, took the overall lead from teammate Johan Museeuw.

Hale Irwin and Raymond Floyd have pulled out of next week's British Open golf tournament at Turnberry, Scotland.
