Howe, Sons May Join Forces By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Editor NEW YORK (UPI) - Gordie Howe has never heard of such a thing happening before. Neither, for that matter, has anyone else. Nobody can remember a father ever playing on the same major league team with his two sons, so it is entirely likely that 45-year-old Gordie Howe will become the first man ever to have that distinction if present negotiations work out with the Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Association. In the event they do, Gordie Howe, the most prolific scorer in all hockey history during his 25 years with the Detroit Red Wings, but working for them only in an executive capacity the past two years now, will play on the same line forj with Houston, but as for Houston next season as his two myself, I still don't know.

So now the Navy pays off with more money., And when you think of all the benefits—job training, food, clothing, housing and medical care, thirty paid vacation days a year.., plus a retirement plan that gives you a good lifetime income after twenty years— you know Navy pay is pretty darned good. If you think you've got what it takes to make it in today's Navy, see Ted Yette or Bill Fengel at Post Office Building, Galesburg, Illinois 61401 or call him at 343-8403 Find out how you can make the Navy pay off for you. second NHL superstar to move over to the WHA. The first one was Bobby Hull, 34-year-old former Chicago Black Hawks winger, who had a big year for the Winnipeg Jets after they gave him better than $2 million to make the jump. He had 51 goals and 52 assists for 103 points and made the all-league team in a breeze. "I was very happy for him," says Gordie Howe, "but what he did has absolutely nothing to do with my thought of coming back. For me, the whole thing started as a dream, Maybe you'd call it a pipe-dream. Fie Didn't Know "Anyway, about five years ago, when Marty and Mark started showing promise and I was still playing with Detroit, a Iotta people and well-wishers said to me 'Do you think you can hang on long enough to play with the boys?' I told them 1 didn't know. "It started me thinking, though. I figured by the time they'd be available for the draft, I'd be 47 years old, and they'd both have to be drafted by Detroit anyway. I knew that was extremely unlikely, so I just put the whole thing away, like I say, as some kind of pipe dream." A year later, however, something happened to get Gordie Howe thinking positively again. An exhibition game was arranged in which a team made up of himself, his bunch of Indians—you know, Howe, Howe, Howe, Howe, Howe," laughs the six-foot, 205- pound six-time MVP. "The Red Wings went only half speed against us just the way I like. We tied 'em 5-5, I think. Since his retirement as an active performer following the 1970-71 season, Howe has been serving as a vice president with the Red Wings. The job is all right, he's "not totally happy." A Little Bit of Everything "I'm in a little bit of everything and not in a lot of it," says Gordie Howe, a man used to being in the thick of it all. "I just hope they don't think I'm turning my back on Detroit. I have a great deal of admiration for Bruce Norris, Jim Bishop and many of the people with the organization." Mark and Marty Howe both played with the Toronto Marlboros, this past season and Mark, voted MVP in the recently concluded Memorial Cup championships, is said by some to be the best-looking hockey prospect since Bobby Orr. "Don't ask me about that," says Gordie Howe. "I'm biased about both my boys." j Naturally, Mark and Marty Howe are more excited about playing big league hockey than their dad is. He's done it already for 25 years with Detroit. But Gordie Howe has no doubt he can do it again.

On the Rebound Injury Slows Jim Sundberg's Fast Pro Start By Joe Morrissey Sports Editor Jim Sundberg's impressive start in professional baseball hit a temporary snag because cf an injury to his throwing hand last week, but the onetime Galesburg High School and American Legion star catcher still thinks he has a good chance to move up soon. The Galesburg product, who starred for three years at the University of Iowa, fractured the index finger of his throwing hand last week and is expected to be limited in playing duties for the next two or three weeks. Before being sidelined by the injury, Sundberg was leading Pittsfield, Mass., of the Double A Eastern League in hitting with a .340 average. The former Streak is being used as a pinch-runner and a warmup catcher in the bullpen with his finger in a splint. Doctors say it will be a while before he can operate as a catcher again. Jim himself thinks he'll be back in a week, but the consensus is that this will be rushing it. Although apparently adjusting well to the professional level of baseball, Sundberg has not been a full-time regular, sharing the duties with Dave Crisionii. "It worked out that I was playing just about every other day," the young catcher said. Although Sundberg has not been going for the long ball he has come up with a pair of homers ,and has been productive in the RBI department. Sundberg said he thinks he was just getting used to Eastern League pitching when the injury came along. "Once the pitcher knows what kind of hitter you are they get into patterns," Sundberg explained. "I think this can also help the hitter because he knows what kind of pitches to expect from different pitchers." Jim thinks that his hitting will get better when he gets Box Scores Cincinnati ab r hbl Rose 4.; 0 0 0 Morgan 2 2 0 0 Bench 3 0 0 0 Perez 1,1,i0 0 C'nc'on 4 12 1 Tolan 4 11- 1 1 Menke 3 0 11 Plum'er 3'0 O 0 Bil'h'm $ Q!0 0 to know more of the league pitchers. Sundberg is hoping for the majors soon, but probably his next stop will be the Rangers' Triple A Club in Spokane, Wash. "The Texas organization said that I would have to beat out Bill Fahey of Spokane to get to the parent club," Sundberg said. Fahey had a brief trial in the majors in 1971 but batted only .168 in 39 games. Duane Banks, Iowa baseball coach, is confident that Sundberg will make it in the majors. "He'll be up there, I'll guarantee it," Banks said. "He Sure would have helped us this year, giving us the confidence and leadership. It's not often that a coach gets a player like Jim Sundberg on his ball club. -J- Justin M.
