Brambilla was clocked at better than 106 miles an hour as he went after the pole position in search of his first Grand Prix win of the year. If none of the other 26 starting drivers beats Brambilla's time during today's qualification he will earn the cov- NHL champion Flyers sign top draft choice PHILADELPHIA (UPI) The Philadelphia Flyers Friday announced the signing of Canadian hockey star Mel Bridgman, the Flyers' No. 1 choice in Tuesday's National Hockey League draft.

"All of this is kind of hard to believe,'" Bridgman said. "A week or so ago I was watching the Flyers on television and now I'm a member of the organization. I thought I would be drafted by a weaker club. I never dreamed I would be with the Stanley Cup champions. The Flyers traded two players and their first draft choice to the Washington Capitals in order to acquire Bridgman, 19, a star center from Victoria, B.C. It also was revealed that head coach Fred Shero would enter a hospital to have tests done on his back, which he said was troubling him. eted pole for the seventh race of the GP season. Scoring the second best time in Friday's practice was Frenchman Patrick Depailler inanElf-Tyrellatl:25. Jean Pierre Jarier, another Frenchman, was third best in the practice laps as he drove a Shadow around the rather flat and boring course in 1:25.06. Fourth was Carlos Reutemann of Argentina in a time of 1:25.18, followed by standings leader Niki Lauda of Austria 1:25.47. Current world c h a m p i o n Emerson Fittipaldi, driving a bright red McLaren, came in a disappointing 10th in Friday's qualifications, but said "there is always tomorrow to better my time." Lauda, leading Fittipaldi in points, 23-21, did not appear disturbed over his slower time. "If I can get . the pole tomorrow and if I get off to a good start in Sunday's race, I hope to win and widen my lead over Fittipaldi," he said. Sweden's Ronnie Peterson, plagued by mechanical problems in his JPS-Lotus, had to use his backup car when his No. 1 racer short circuited and started burning. The fire was put out immediately.

E)E5T BET: Echo Brook Russ («h) Bobby Unser enters Schaefer 500 LONG POND - Bobby Unser, fresh from a second Indianapolis 500 victory and ready to make a strong run at a third National Championship, will drive the Jorgensen Eagle in the fifth annual Schaefer 500 at Pocono June 29. Bobby U., the older of a pair of racing brothers who won four Indy victories between them -- he also won in 1968 while Al Unser won in 1970 and 1971 -- will drive the same Offenhauser powered machine in which he won the rain shortened Indy event recently. Bobby is the only U.S. Auto Club driver to have held the lead in each of the previous Schaefer 500 races. In four events, two of which he started from the pole, he has been in front 14 different times for a total of 149 laps. He has yet to go the full distance, however. His best Schaefer 500 finish came in 1974 when he completed 197 laps and took fifth place to wrap up the Triple Crown Championship for Indy cars. He wound up in the top five in 12 of 13 races he ran last year; and in his only two starts of the 1975 season, he has a win at Indianapolis and a second in the California 500. He is 100 points in front of another veteran, A.J. Foyt, in the run for the Triple Crown. Although original plans called for Bobby to run only the three 500 mile races during the current season, car owner Dan Gurney said after the Indy win that the team would try to repeat as US AC champion. Bobby also won the title in 1968. While the 2.5 Pocono tri-Oval has not been kind to Unser in the past -- he was ninth in 1971, twentieth in 1972 and tenth in 1973 -- he likes racing on it. "Some of the best races we have each year come at Pocono," he said. "Just look at the way they have finished." Bobby U. has picked up $41,196.00 in Schaefer 500 races . . . a mere pittance compared to the check he could get by winning the race this year. A victory would certainly soothe any past frustrations he may have had. Sneva to race LONG POND -- Tom Sneva, who miraculously escaped serious injury in a spectacular Indianapolis 500 crash, will end a short recuperation period with a comeback bid in the Schaefer 500 at Pocono June 29. The former junior high school principal from Spokane, Wash., flipped into the second turn fence on the 128th lap of the Indy race. His Norton Spirit McLaren came to pieces during the ensuing second of what some people said was the most violent accident they had ever seen at the speedway. Sneva came out of it much better than his car. He suf- fered no broken bones, but he spent a week in Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis nursing burns he received over 15 per cent of his body. While doctors insisted that he pass up the Milwaukee 150, they gave him the green light to compete at Pocono. The 27-year-old Sneva had been called one of the most promising young drivers in the U.S. Auto Club Championship trail. He has been an especially strong qualifier - he had the fourth quickest run this year at Indianapolis and the sixth fastest at the California 500 - and in four races which preceded the Indy event, he finished no worse than ninth. He is in his first season with owner Roger Penske, and his car is prepared by Jim McGee, who has 25 Championship wins to his credit as a chief mechanic. The two have spent most of this season learning about one another; and it should be only a matter of time before they get it together in a winning effort. Sneva has been at Pocono twice. In 1973, he was running fast enough to qualify but blew an engine on the final lap of his qualification attempt; and last year he qualified seventh and was running well up in the pack before he spun in oil in the first turn and crashed on the 155th lap. Since the first day in the hospital following his accident at Indy, he has been assuring people he'd be ready for Pocono. That promise will become a reality when practice for the Triple Crown event opens on June 18, and it wouldn't be surprising if Tom Sneva were the first driver on the track. 107th running of classic today Impressive field for Be/monf Sfakes NEW YORK (UPI) - Master Derby, the Preakness winner, may have received a big edge in his duel with Kentucky Derby winner Foolish Pleasure in today's 107th Belmont Stakes when a torrential rainstorm drenched Belmont Park Friday and forced an early curtailment of the day's racing. The downpour was so great that it washed out a section of the track near the five-eighths pole, causing the termination of racing after the fourth race for what the stewards cited as "safety reasons." Golden Chance Farm's Master Derby would be the prime beneficiary of an off track for today's $193,600 Belmont as the Dust Commander colt has shown a marked affection for mud. However, Foolish Pleasure and Avatar also have done well over an off track. The other nine-horse field are an unknown quantity on an off track. It was the first time the New York State Racing Association has ended a card early since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy Nov. 22,1963. Despite Friday's downpour, there's still a chance for a fast track today as the Belmont strip dries quickly and no more rain is forecast before the running of the Belmont. The race will be televised nationally by CBS starting at 5 p.m. EOT. with post time at 5:35. W.E. "Smiley" Adams, Master Derby's, trainer, said the weather "don't make no difference. But I guess I'd like it dry. I don't want to win and have people use a muddy track as an excuse." The l'/2-mile Belmont, the third leg of the Triple Crown, was once dubbed "the race of no excuses" by veteran trainer Elliott Burch because of its extended distance .and usually small fields. Avatar's trainer, Tommy Doyle, apparently agrees. After watching his horse gallop Friday morning, Doyle Bass fishing season fo open Saturday HARRISBURG - For some Pennsylvania fishermen, Saturday, June 14 will be the most important day of the year. For many other anglers, it will be the second greatest date on the calendar, exceeded only by Saturday, April 12, when the 1975 trout season opened on rivers, lakes and streams of the Keystone State. The reason? Black bass, known officially as largemouth and smallmouth, become legal quarry at one minute past midnight on June 14 and the 1975 bass fishing season, which stretches to March 14, 1976, will be underway. And among the fishing fraternity, expert opinion claims there is no better freshwater fish than a fighting smallmouth or lunker largemouth -- not even a trout or salmon. Both species of bass have been protected by a closed season on most inland waters of Pennsylvania since the 1974-75 season closed on March 14. They have been legal to catch and creel, however, in the Susquehanna River below Holtwood Dam (the upstream limit of the Conowingo Pool), the Delaware River, and Py- matuning Reservoir where the season is open year around. The 1975-76 season opening June 14 on almost all inland waters permits anglers to keep up to 6 bass (combined species) daily with a minimum size of 9 inches. Because a few inland lakes or other waters containing bass populations are managed under special regulations, however, fishermen are urged to check their summary booklets issued with their fishing license or to carefully read signs posted at these waters. ' The largest largemouth bass reported to the Fish Commission last year through its "Citation Fish", program was a 24%-inch lunker weighing seven pounds, six ounces taken in Lake Sabula; Clearfield County. The Pennsylvania- state record largemouth measured 29 inches, weighed eight pounds, eight ounces and was caught in Stillwater Lake, Monroe County in 1936. The world record largemouth was caught in Montgomery Lake, Georgia in 1936 and measured 32% inches, weighed 22 pounds, four ounces. The largest smallmouth bass reported last year was a 22- inch, five pound, 12 ounce fish. Two night games top ESSC grid schedule EAST STROUDSBURG -- Two home night games highlight East Stroudsburg State College's nine-game 1975 football schedule as released by John R. Eiler, athletic director. The Warriors will take on Montclair State Sept. 20 and arch-rival West Chester Sept. 27 in a pair of 8 p.m. contests at the Stroudsburg High School Stadium. There will be two other home games against Mansfield for Homecoming Oct. 18 and against Millersville for Parents' Day Oct. 25. Both games will begin at 1:30 p.m. at the ESSC Stadium. "With the two night games and the two afternoon special dates, we are hoping it will be convenient for all area fans to see us play at least once," Eiler said. The Warriors, under newly-named head coach Dennis Douds, will open their season Sept. 13 against three-time Pennsylvania Conference champion Slippery Rock. The contest will be played in the Rockets' new 10,000-seat stadium. Other away games will be played at Kutztown Oct. 4, Cheyney Oct. 11, Cortland Slate Nov. 1 and the season fir.a- le at Bloomsburg Nov. 8. said, "The horse will have no excuses--actually none of them will--fast track or not. I'm looking forward to this race. I regard it'just as it's called-'the test of the champion.' " Foolish Pleasure, with his, Kentucky Derby victory and 11 wins in 13 races, is the early line favorite at 2-1 and a triumphant Belmont may finally earn him the title of champion. But, in addition to Master Derby, who beat Foolish Pleasure by a length, Avatar, Diabolo, Prince Thou Art and Singh all rate serious consideration for the Belmont's $116,160 winner's share.
