7 THE BRANDON SUN, Thursday, August 22, 1 V74 Fighting rule change urged by LLOYD JOHNSTON TORONTO (CP) The report of an Ontario inquiry into violence in amateur hockey drew guarded comment Wednesday from Premier William Davies and criticism from Clarence Campbell, president of the National Hockey League (NHL). The premier supported William McMurtry, a Toronto lawver who recommended mandatory game-misconduct penalties for fighting on the ice, but stopped short of placing the blame on the NHL. McMurtry was asked by the government last April to investigate violence in amateur hockey in Ontario after Bramalea withdrew from an Ontario Hockey Association (OHA) Junior B final playoff series against Hamilton because of a fight-filled opening game. McMurtry heard six days of testimony from more than 50 witnesses before preparing the 47-page report issued Wednesday. As for players who fight being thrown out of the game, Premier Davis told a news conference he does not know if there is any action the government might take to make that suggestion mandatory. "My hope is and I'd like to think we won't be disappointed that the people who are responsible for amateur hockey in this province will see the wisdom of this," the premier said. McMurtry also called for expulsion from a game for "deliberate use of the stick for spearing and butt-ending." He said in the NHL there is an emphasis on winning, a growing use of violence as a tactical instrument to achieve victorv, and an attempt to sell hockey to a wide audience in the United States "who understand a hockey brawl far more easily than the intricacies and finesse of the game," Campbell defended the NHL, describing the report as "a customary product of McMurtry's imagination." "It's just not true at all," said Campbell. "A great deal of that report is a product of his personal assessment for which he has neither the mandate nor the competence." The NHL president was also resentful about the amount of the report devoted to the NHL's role. Alan Eagleson, president of the NHL Players' Association and a law firm partner of McMurtry, joined with Campbell in his assessment of the report. "There's a great difference between professional and amateur hockey," he said. "In amateur hockey there's no reason for violence. In professional hockey, you take certain risks." McMurtrv asked for more government financial aid aimed partially at expanding the program of referees' clinics. Rene Brunelle, Community and Social Services Minister, announced Wednesday the OHA would receive more monev from the government. The $30,000 granted for refereeing and coaching clinics will be increased by $60,000, he said. Jack Davine of Belleville, Ont, president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, said an increase in government financial support to upgrade coaches and referees can only be beneficial. Cliff Phillips, OHA president, who appeared at the inquiry along with Campbell, said his stand on the recommendation that game misconducts be given for fighting has not changed since the hearing. 1 : "I'm not at all convinced that a game misconduct is the answer. There is alwways an inequity in assessing such a penalty."

Winnipeg Blue Bombers had something a little bit special. The Bombers got a big break in the final moments of the game and turned it into a touchdown for an 18-13 win over Toronto Argonauts, their first victory of the Canadian Football League season after three 18 Cutler.

Golf record for Massey EDMONTON (CP) Debbie Massey of Bethlehem, PA., shot five birdies in a row Wednesday and posted a record-breaking 70 to grab the first-round lead in the Canadian women's amateur golf championships. Heading the strongest international field to play in the women's amateur in many years, Miss Massey tore five strokes from par at the Edmonton Golf and Country Club course and opened a three-shot lead over her closest rival, Betty Cole of Edmonton. Mrs. Coie, No. 1 player on the Alberta provincial team that opened a lead in the annual competition which ends today managed a 71 several years ago. her 73 Wednesday was "my best showing in the opening round since about 1967." "I didn't even , know it was a touchdown until they put the ball down for the extra point," said Winnipeg quarterback Don Jonas. "I thought we'd just got the one point." , 1 The wild. finish, capping a generally lacklustre game before 21,139 fans in Winnipeg began when the Argos had Zenon Andrusyshyn punt from the end zone on the final play of the game, although time had actually run out before the kick, Winnipeg kicker Walt McKee picked up the punt, stepped around Peter Muller on the Toronto 35-vard-linc, and booted the ball back into the end zone, where Wayne Allison of the. Argos tried unsucces-fuliy to make a return punt. Dave Knechtel of the Bombers blocked Allison's attempt, and Jim Heighten recovered the ball in the Argonaut end zone for the touchdown at 15:00 of the fourth quarter. "It was really a stupid play," Jonas said of the . Toronto manoeuvre. "All he had to do was to kick the ball out of bounds, the game is over, we don't get a chance." At Calgary, playing before about 26,200 fans, Lancaster threw a 44-yard scoring pass to Steve Mazurak on the first play of the second quarter, and the Roughriders never looked back. Place kicker Brian Berg converted Mazurak's touchdown and booted a 37-yard field goal with just 40 seconds gone in the fourth quarter that provided Saskatchewan , with the margin of victory. Larry Robinson, who put the cellar-dwelling Stampeders on the scoreboard with a 32-yard single midway through the first quarter, converted the fourth-quarter touchdown plunge by fullback Gene Thomas, with less than two minutes left to play. The Stampeders. who suffered their fourth loss against one win, put on one of their better defensive performances of the season but couldn't hold down Reed, who led all rushers with 104 yards on 17 carries. Moody Jackson, a rookie, was a good target for Stampeder quarterback Peter Liske. catching six passes for 120 yards. Liske completed 22 of 35 pass attempts for 316 yards, compared with Lancaster's 17 completions on 29 attempts for 167 yards. The victory gave the Roughriders sole possession of first place in the Western' Football Conference with eight points on four wins and a loss. Edmonton Eskimos and British Columbia Lions are tied for second with six points each on identical 3-1 records. At Winnipeg, the Bombers got things together in the fourth quarter and fullback John Bledsoe capped a 75-yard 12-play march with a one-yard touchdown, plunge at 7:24 of the quarter. In the game's final minutes, the Bombers' offensive drive stalled on the Argonaut 37-yard-line, and a field goal attempt by McKee went wide. But the Winnipeg defensive line, led by Heighten and Lloyd Grimsrud, held tight on the next two plays and the Argonauts were forced into the third-down situation on the fourth-yard-line that led to the winning points. The loss left the Argonauts with a 2-3 won-loss record that is shared by Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Ottawa Rough Riders, while Montreal Alouetles set the Eastern Football Conference pace with three wins and two losses, Toronto quarterback Mike Rae refused to let the steady rain that, fell through the first half of the game and the persistent winds hamper his passing attempts, had a number of good passes dropped and scoring opportunities were lost. Rae was dumped three times in the game by Grimsrud? once in the end zone for a second-quarter Winnipeg safety touch. The Bombers' other points came on McKee's 25-yard field goal in the third quarter and his fourth-quarter single. Eric Allen took a 48-yard pass from Rae in the third quarter for Toronto's only touchdown. Andrusyshyn booted the convert and added field goals from the 39-and 28-yard lines. The weather conditions, combined with solid defensive efforts by both tea ire, kept, the ground totals below par. The Argonauts managed just 113 yards total offense, while Winnipeg had 212. The individual star on offence was Bledsoe, who carried 28 times for 119 yards. For Toronto, Ed Shuttlesworth picked up 45 vards on 10 carries.
