' Tuesday's draft was the first year that Canadians playing college ball in the United States were eligible for the CFL draft. Previously the Canadian draft was restricted to players who attended Canadian universities and colleges. Now, Canadians who accept-e d scholarships at U.S. schools can be drafted, and they are still non-imports. Commissioner Jake Gaudaur termed it "the most meaningful draft we have' ever had." In the first two rounds, six of the 18 players selected, were from American colleges and three went to the Lions In . effect, Tuesday's first round was actually the third round of selections because each club was permitted to protect two players under the league's territorial provisions. .The actual draft was termed a form of equalization by Gaudaur because it "precludes some clubs dominating the playing rights of" Canadian players at U.S. colleges simply by the sheer number of high schools in their territory." Edmonton Eskimos and B.C. each managed to protect three players as; a result of trades with Ottawa Rough Riders and Montreal Alouettes, respectively. Hie other clubs, all protected two. Ottawa general manager1 Frank Clair came away' with the slimmest pickings Tuesday since he had traded his first-round choice to Edmonton and passed after the fourth round. In all, 76 of the 249 eligible Canadian college graduates were selected by the nine CFL clubs over the nine rounds.

Those fight he had with me had nothing to do with his death. ' I'm no murderer." For the first few years of . his career, Bugner was protected from the press by his manager and trainer, Andy Smith. Such a thorough job was done by Smith that Bugner sometimes was, referred to by the British press as "a ventriloquist's dummy" or a "zombie." No more. Andy Smith feels Bugner now is capable of speaking for himself, and Smith is right For example, Burner has been booed a few times in London, chiefly because he's so big and powerful looking that the fans feel shortchanged any time he doesn't completely devastate his opponent. The booing has not escaped Bugner's attention. He doesn't try to dismiss it by demeaning the fans. On the. contrary, he understands why they boo him and supports their option to do so. "You can't put an old head on young shoulders," says Joe Bugner, "and you can't offer experience you don't really have. The fans know I have something they want and every now and then I produce it Sometimes I don't and they boo. i "As long as they keep coming out I'm satisfied because the sport is bigger than the individual. Damn it, they pay their money, and when you don't satisfy them, they're entitled to boo." Joe Bugner may be on the short end of an "out price" but he has some good fibre in him.

W ' A ' a a a CFL expansion to ILSo still loomin TORONTO (CP) - Expansion into the United States is expected to get foremost consideration when the Canadian Football League's executive committee goes into session Thursday. General managerrs of the nine CFL teams met behind closed doors Tuesday and, while they were reluctant to discuss what transpired, several were willing to reiterate their views on the expansion . theme. John Bassett, owner of Toronto Argonauts, initiated the move south of the border last year allegedly to increase CFL revenue. He withdrew the proposal at meetings last November but left the door open for possible future consideration of ex pansion into the U.S. Bassett, speaking in a radio interview recently,' said 'he feels franchises .' located in New York, Detroit, Seattle and Tampa, Fla., would produce much-needed revenue. Argos; in effect, ore seeking rearrangement of gate-equalization payments which Bassett says are taxing the Toronto treasury. He said the Eastern Football Conference club, over the last five years, has paid double into the scheme what the fund has realized from the other eight clubs combined. With the exception of British Columbia Lions of the Western Conference and a couple of eastern colleagues, the other clubs in the CFL are opposed to such a move. . "Nothing has changed," said Norm Kimball, general manager of the WFC Edmonton Eskimos. "We don't think it will work. "We voted against It for that reason, not because we wanted to vote against Bassett." . . Lions GM Jackie Parker admitted his club at least favors consideration of expansion. "Our idea is that we might take a good look at it if it would mean more revenue." The subject of National Football League expansion into Canada is also expected to be dealt with by the executive committee, especially a franchise in Montreal which could bring about the demise of the Alouettes and possibly the CFL. . Delegates . to the meetings were reminded Tuesday night that such an event could hap- -pen, particularly with the necessary stadium facilities, becoming available after the 1976 Olympic Games. . . ' , Some officials refuse to get excited. ' "The reasons for that not happening outweigh those that it might happen," says Wiimi- peg's general manager Earl Lunsford. "I've heard these . rumors before. "I've also heard the people in Montreal prefer watching the NFL on television to the CFL. "That's nonsense. I've seen the BBM (Bureau of Broad- t cast Measurement) figures and far more watch Canadian than football in Montreal watch the NFL." Lunsford said he doubts the NFL is even interested in locating in Canada in the immediate future. "People that I've talked to in the NFL say there is no chance of expanding to Canada. They don't want it or need it." He said there were too many cities in the U.S. looking for NFL franchises and he possibility of locating- another one in a cold area appears doubtful. Hamilton GM Ralph Sazio said the NFL needs Canadian ' football "because of that antitrust thing," and doesn't foresee the U.S. league posing a threat to the CFL's future for just that reason. by. feels Ravens win Just. 6Love-erly By CLEM KEALEY Carleton Ravens came within one win of mathematically clinching a playoff position in the eastern section of the Ontario University Athletic Association's basketball league Tuesday night when they out-hustled, out-ran and out-rebounded Queen's Golden Gaels by an overwhelming margin en route to a 91-55 victory. Ravens controlled the backboards at both ends of the court from the opening tap-off and a happy coach Bob O'Billovich said that the win was just "Love-erly." Carleton had done some stumbling in recent games and the staggers really set in when lanky freshman, Jon Love, came up with a lame leg early in a game, Ravens eventually lost to Ottawa U.' Love was conspicuous by his absence in Ravens' double defeat last weekend and so O'Billovich smothered him with praise after his emphatic return to the lineup last night. "There's no question in my mind," O'Billovich said "that Jon as the best rookie univer- YANKS SIGN THREE NEW YORK (AP)"-New-York .Yankees signed their first three players for the 1973 season Tuesday, including third baseman Craig Nettles, who was acquired from Cleveland Indians during the offseason. Also signed were pitcher Casey Cox and reserve infielder Hal Lanier. sity basketball player in this league. . . very likely in all of Canada." O'Billovich was in love with both his Loves last night and all of the other eight or nine players he gave liberal floor time to. According to the Carleton coach, Drew Love played his best game of the season from his centre position picking off 14 rebounds, one more than his younger brother. Jon had Queen's defence confused throughout the. onesided game. He picked off rebounds, ran like a loping gazelle and scored from all over the court. In addition he fed many passes, setting up fast breaks resulting in more Ravens' baskets. JON LOVE DREW LOVE Jon hit on 14 of 20 shots from the floor, which, in basketball parlance, spells uncanny accuracy and he led all shooters with his 28 points. Dave Montagano with 20 points, including three straight field goals within a minute in the second half, was another Carleton standout. Lome Bowles contributed 11 and Drew Love 10. Last night's win . sets up . Carleton's biiggest game of the season which comes Friday night in the Ravens gym . against the undefeated Lau-rentian University (9-0). Carleton took over second place from U of O last night and ran their record to six wins and three losses.

CHALLENGING FOREMAN DENVER (UPI) - Bill Daniels said he will deposit a $5,000 check with' the New York State Athletic Commission Wednesday to open the official challenge for his fighter, Ron Lyle, against hcavy-welght champion George Foreman. By The Canadian Press A fast start provided Oshawa Generals with a win Tuesday night, but a similar feat by Sudbury Wolves meant only a tie in the Ontario Hock-ey Association Junior A series. Generals defeated St. Cath-arines Black Hawks 6-2, thanks to a 3-0 first-period dead before 3,119 fans in Oshawa. There was a time, early in the season when Oshawa was dismissed as a threat to the big three in the,, standings. But they play next vtot the Civic Centre Friday night against Leo Boivin's 67s and at the rate Ottawa has been moving of late it's almost a toss-up-who'll come out on top. The bulk of the Ottawa players had a second consecutive day off practice yesterday but all those not being used on a regular basis, along with a couple of Carleton hockey players with a couple of years of junior eligibility, participated in a light workout Thjs weekend could go a long way towards deciding Ottawa's final position during the regular schedule. They're now a comfortable third but Peterborough and the Marlies meet in a home-and-home series Thursday and Friday and then 67s visit Maple Leaf Gardens Sunday afternoon. Wolves held a 4-2 lead after the first and added another in the second before Hamilton Red Wings rallied for a 7-7 deadlock. Oshawa's win gave the sixth-place Generals 43 points, one behind St. Catharines, Sudbury is seventh with 31 points, one more than Hamilton which has a seven-point lead over Kitchener Red Wings. Walt Johnson paced Oshawa with two goals, while Andy Whitby, Don Seiling, Bill Lochead and Rick Middlcton added the others. Middleton leads the 10-tcam league in goals with 51. Bob MacGulgan scored both goals for Hawks, outshot 40-35. Linematcs Pat Hickey and Mike Hobin starred for Wings who outshot Wolves 46-35 and trailed 4-2 after the first and 54 at the end of the second: Hickey scored three goals for the second time this sea son and added an assist, while Hobin got two goals arid three assists. Dwaine Davis and Glen Cickello, who fired the tying goal with less than four minutes remaining, were the other Hamilton scorers before 860 fans. The line of Tom Colley, Morris Titanic and Terry Casey collected nine points. Colley had two goals and two assists with Casey getting a goal and two assists. Titanic set up Colley's first goal and scored one himself in the third. Tom Young, Eric Vail and Bob Russell shared the other Sudbury goals. Play resumes Thursday night with first-place Toronto . Marlboros visiting Peterborough. The second-place Petes are eight points behind the leaders. aiming much higher than a playoff berth (he wants to finish at least second) .However they finish off with two games against Laurentian and a date next Tuesday in Kingston against this same Queen's team. Norm Haggarty was the top Queen's point man last night with 23 and i9 of those points came in the second half when they were in a ridiculous catch-up position. No chance might be a more apt descriptive position since Queen's trailed 41-19 at the intermission..
