PRO HOCKEY Binghamton at Johnstown MONTREAL (UPI) -Bernie Parent, who finally seems to have found a comfortable home with the Philadelphia Flyers, apparently will be the starting goaltender for the West Division in the annual National Hockey League All-Star game at Chicago Jan. 29. Parent, who was the first name player to sign with the World Hockey Association and then quit his team and the league during last year's playoffs, led all goalies in balloting for the West team with 108 votes. Three-time All-Star Tony Esposito of the Chicago Black Hawks drew 78 votes to also qualify for the team behind Parent. Bill White, a steady, often- underrated defenseman for Chicago, and Bill Goldsworthy, a more volatile right wing for the Minnesota North Stars, were the top vote-getters on the West squad, each totaling 114 points in the balloting conducted among West Division members of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association. Philadelphia and Chicago, dueling for the West Division title, each placed three players among the 12 men selected by the writers. Joining Esposito and White from the Black Hawks is left wing Dennis Hull, while the other Flyer representatives are center Bobby Clarke and defenseman Ed Van Impe. Other players chosen today were center Dennis Hextall of Minnesota, defen- seman Dave Burrows and left wing Lowell MacDonald of the Pittsburgh Penguins, defen- seman Don Awrey of the St Louis Blues and right wing Al McDonough of the Atlanta Flames. Billy Reay of the Black Hawks, who will coach theTWest Stars, will select eight more players next week to complete the team. He will choose at least one player from the Los Angeles Kings and California Golden Seals, the only teams not to be represented thus far. l Maybe State Should Also Give 'Hunters' Eye, Reading Tests The Pennsylvania Game .Commission has received a number of turkey kill report cards which listed deer kills. Fayette County Game Warden Alex Ziros of Connellsville reminded hunters that "the correct card for reporting a deer kill is part of the hunting license, and is well marked. The turkey kill report card is a separate item, and bears no resemblance to the deer kill report card. "Information needed on whitetails harvested is asked for on the deer kill report card, and is essential for the proper management of the herd. Information asked for on the turkey kill report card bears no relationship to the deer herd. "Since data on deer is useless when reported on a turkey card, hunters should use the deer kill report card issued with the hunting license to report white- tails taken," Ziros said.

Barry scored 44 points and Penn State Kicker Bohr Repeat Soccer AH-American Pick UNIVERSITY PARK - Chris Bahr, whose 44-yard field goal helped Penn State to its Orange Bowl win over LSU New Year's Night, has earned All-America honors in soccer, the second year in a row that Bahr has earned first team honors in balloting by the National Soccer Coaches Association. A junior, Bahr helped both the Nittany Lion soccer and football teams earn post-season action. ' His team-leading 11 goals and five assists led the Lion hooters to their fourth consecutive appearance in the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament. Penn State (8-2-2) finished eighth in the final Coaches Association national poll. In football, the Feasterville, Pa., native was successful on 32 of 42 conversion kicks and a school record 11 of 19 field goals, including a 50-yarder. He was six for six on field goals of 40 yards or less. The Lion football team finished 12-0, including its 16-9 win over LSU in the Orange Bowl, and was ranked fifth nationally by both major wire services. It was not unusual for Bahr to play soccer Friday night and spend Saturday morning traveling to the site of the Lions' football game. "It was kind of hectic at times," Bahr says, "but it was worth it. I was able to do two things that I enjoy doing." Bahr is Penn State's first two- time soccer All-American since Dick Packer was named to the 1954 and 1955 teams.

"I've made up my mind to go all out in every game," Barry said. "I'm going to take a break when I need it. That's why we have a bench." The win pulled the Warriors to within three games of idle Los Angeles in the National Basketball Association's Pacific Division and also squared their record at 21-21. Barry, who made 15 of 26 field goal attempts in the game, scored 10 of the Warriors' 29 points during the streak while Butch Beard added eight. Jeff Mullins and Cazzie Russell scored 23 and 21 points, respectively, for Golden State while Charlie Scott paced Phoenix with 31. In the only other NBA games, Pete Marayich and Lou Hudson, the respective second and third leading scorers in the NBA, combined for 61 points to help Atlanta snap its five game losing streak and beat Portland, 126-99. Maravich tallied 20 points in the first half and finished with 34, while Hudson collected 17 of his 27 in the first two quarters. Sidney Wicks topped the Trail Blazers with 23 points. Wes Unseld returned to Capital's starting lineup after an eight day absence and scored 13 points while grabbing 17 rebounds to lead the Bullets to 101-86 win over Cleveland. Unseld keyed a fourth quarter surge with three rebounds and a basket to stop a Cavalier rally. Phil Chenier of the Bullets led all scorers with 26 points while Austin Carr topped Cleveland with 22. In the American Basketball Association, Lee Davis scored 12 points of his 18 points in the final quarter to help Memphis upset Indiana, 101-96. Randy Denton led the victorious Tarns with 21 points but the Pacers' George McGinnis topped all scorers with 24 points. Rookies Bird Averitt, who scored 35 points, and Swen Nater, who pulled in 18 rebounds, led San Antonio past San Diego, 101-97. James Silas had 30 points for the Spurs while rookie Caldwell Jones, returning after his fourth broken nose of the season, topped San Diego with 22. Penguins Trade Again PITTSBURGH (UPI) - The Pittsburgh Penguins, in a move to bolster their sagging defense, Thursday night pulled off another major trade, sending goaltender Jim Rutherford and defenseman Jack Lynch to Detroit for defenseman Ron Stackhouse. The Penguins sent Greg Polls and Bryan Watson, plus an optional second round draft choice to the St. Louis Blues Wednesday night for Steve Durbano, Ab DeMarco and Bob Kelley. A Penguins spokesman said Pittsburgh was seeking to bury its image as a sub-par checking team. "We're looking for a younger, tougher hockey team," the spokesman said. "Also Rutherford, Lynch and Watson were all in the final year of their contracts. Our new acquisitions are in the first years of multiyear contracts." The Penguins rank 14th in the National Hockey League in goals allowed. The trades were the first to be made by newly-named General Manager Jack Button, who succeeded Jack Riley last Monday. * Edinboro SC 9th in first NAIA Ratings KANSAS CITY, Mo.- Unbeaten Fairmont State, W.

Star running back Larry Csonka, wide receiver Paul Warfield and defensive end Bill Stanfill left camp after declaring themselves medically unfit for the Pro,Bowl game Sunday in Kansas City. Both squads came here for workouts to escape bad weather in Kansas City. Earlier Tuesday, offensive tackle Wayne Moore was excused from the game after undergoing a medical'examina- tion. Moore is nursing a twisted knee. Two other Dolphin starters, offensive guard Larry Little and halfback Mercury Morris, were expected to be examined today by NFL doctors. Csonka, who set a Super Bowl rushing record against the Vikings, required stitches on his face after the game. An NFL spokesman said Csonka, Stanfill and Warfield left camp after being told to report to a doctor for examinations. Warfield has been nursing a pulled muscle since the week before the Super Bowl, while Stanfill said he suffered bruised ribs in the Vikings game. Oakland running back Marv Hubbard was named to replace Csonka, and Denver wide receiver Haven Moses will fill in for Warfield. No immediate replacement was named for Stanfill. NAM Coach of Tear KANSAS CITY, Mo. (UPI) Larry Korver, whose Northwestern College (Iowa) Red Raiders produced a perfect 12-0 football season and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) Division H title, has been named the 1973 NAIA Coach of the Year. The NAIA Football Coaches Association made the selection of Korver who has had six consecutive winning seasons with Northwestern. day's National FootbaU League Pro Bowl. - 1 Coaches Tom Landry of the NFC and John Madden of the AFC both appeared pleased with their clubs and ready to play although injuries caused some alterations in their plans. Madden, making his second appearance in the Pro Bowl, said, "It's an enjoyable experience because here you're coaching the best. The thing which impresses me is not only the ability of these athletes'but their intelligence. They pick'Up things so quickly." \ *.»· Landry, who coached two NFL Pro Bowl games when the American Conference was.iot involved and then had a losing effort last year, felt he hap a good week. "It's easier to work with outstanding people like this.'^e said. As for predictions, Landry felt either club could win oh' a given day. " t The AFC was hurt by thelktes of five Miami Dolphins because of injuries but still appeared'to offer a solid club. Quarterback Bob Griese admitted his arm was tired but felt he could do well handing off to the likes of O. J. Simpson and Marv Hubbard with Floyd Little and Franco Harris in reserve. Although teammate Paul Warfield was injured, Griese felt he and fellow quarterback Ken Stabler would have'no handicap passing to Isaac Curtis, Fred Biletnikoff and Riley Odoms. The starting AFC defense shaped up as a coach's dream with Pittsburgh Steelers' Dwight White, L C. Greenwood, Joe Greene, Andy Russell and Jack Ham aided by Mike Reid of Cincinnati, Willie Lanierof Kansas City, Willie Brown, of Oakland, Clarence Scott;;of Cleveland and the Miami safety duo of Jake Scott and Dick Anderson. Passing normally wins All- Star games, and, although NFC coach Tom Landry likes'.'a running game, he will not be hesitant to throw with John Hadl and Roman Gabriel. "" Harold Jackson of the Rams and Charley Taylor of Washington will start at wide receivers with Minnesota's John Gilliam and league leading receiver Harold Carmichael of Philadelphia in the wings. *· And the running is not in bad shape with John Brockington of Green Bay teaming with Chuck Foreman of Minnesota and the Rams' Larry McCutcheon and Jim Bertelsen.
