Sports Briefs lorouche Formed Out Pierre Larouche, the youngest player to score 50 goals in a season in National Hockey League history, was sent to the minor league Hershey Bears by the Pittsburgh Penguins Thursday. Larouche, 21, has supposedly been unhappy over a lack of Ice time this season and missed practice Wednesday after scoring a goal and two assists in the Penguins' 7-1 victory over Los Angeles Tuesday A team spokesman would not comment on the move except to say^that Larouche will be in Hershey for the NCAA Clears Sooners John Dean, vice president for university relations at the University of Oklahoma, released a terse statement from the NCAA Thursday stating that the University of Oklahoma football team is not under investigation. Dean said the statement was a response by NCAA Executive Director Walter Byers to a request made earlier in the week by the university "to state in plain language" whether OU was being investigated. The reply: "As to your question pertaining to Section Three, the answer is no." Orr Won'* Retire Bobby OIT said Thursday he has no intention of retiring from hockey despite lingering knee trouble "I'll play hockey until I'm not able to skate," Orr insists. "The game has been great to me and I'm definitely not retiring now." Orr, for whom Chicago Black Hawks paid $3 million, is out for the second time this season with problems in his delicate left knee, which has been operated on five times. He is expected to be out an additional three weeks after undergoing delicate minor surgery early next week. Track Record for Baker Buddy Baker set a track record Thursday in capturing the pole position for Sunday's Dixie 500 at Atlanta International Raceway. Baker covered the l 5 mile oval track at an average speed of 161.052 miles per hour, breaking the record he had set in 1969. Dave Mareis (161.571) and David Pearson (160.817) filled out the front row. French Horses Favored Two BVench horses were rated the favorites for Saturday's 25th running of the Washington International at Laurel Racetrack. Ivanica, winner of the prestigious Arc de Triomphe earlier this year, was established as a 2-1 choice, while Youth, the 3-year-old winner of the French Derby and Canadian International, was pegged at 5-2 The best American bet, Improvisor, was a late scratch because of a pulled leg muscle. Little Big Man 7-0 Calvin-Murphy of the Houston Rockets may be one of the smallest men in the National Basketball Association at 5-foot-8 but he's also apparently one of the best fighters. Murphy decked Boston's Sidney Wicks, who stands nearly a foot taller, during a game Wednesday night,, and his Houston teammates were claiming it was Murphy's seventh win without a loss in his seven-season NBA career. Murphy's other victims include Dale Schleuter, 6-n, Larry McNeill, 6-9, and John Brown, 6-8. "A one-on-one' fight between Sidney Wicks and Calvin Murphy would be no contest," Wicks insisted. "He picks on the biggest guys because he doesn't think theyul come at himTBut he better watch out."

Thursday canceled its $150,000 Sahara Invitational golf tournament because of rising costs, scheduling problems and a d e c l i n e o f n a t i o n a l promotional benefits. Edward M. Nigro, vice president and general manager of Webb's Sahara Hotel, said costs of the tournament had increased 500 per cent in the past six years. Nigro said the tournament's promotional value to pel Webb Corp. has declined because of lack of national television coverage affected by professional football. "Spring dates have been requested from the PGA for quite sometime but, unfortunately, these have not been available for us Therefore, we have reluctantly decided to cancel our sponsorship of the event," Nigro said. When the Del Webb Sahara Invitational began in 1958, it was a 36-hote pro- amateur event played at the Las Vegas Municipal Golf Club with a total purse of $3,500. The tournament attained major PGA tour status in 1962 as a 72-hole event. For the past three years, following the wishes of the late Del E Webb, the Sahara has turned over gate receipts totaling more than $30,000 to St Rose De Lima Hospital in Henderson.
