REPUBLIB 48 The Arizona JMioeal*, f n««., Nov. 4, 1969 Gordie Howe, en route to 19th hat trick Associated Press Sore arm plagues Namath ; By DAVE ANDERSON ; New York Times Service • NEW YORK *- Joe Na- inath's passing arm is sore. '. The soreness, according to 4he. quarterback of the New ,;York Jets, exists "in a muscle from about five inches above to about five inches below the inside of the elbow." It developed during last Friday's practice, and remained during the Jets' 34-31 victory over the Miami Dolphins Sun- Hay at Shea Stadium. • "It. was there during the game," Namath acknowledged yesterday, "but I don't think it made much difference." < Namath completed 13 of 26 passes for 233 yards and three touchdowns, hardly an indication of an ailing arm. "I would'nt say that Joe has a sore arm, per se," commented coach Weeb Ewbank, "but his arm is kind of sore." ABA rookie fined $250 Associated Press MIAMI.— Larry Cannon, a $250,000 pro basketball rookie, was fined $250 yesterday for stepping out on the Miami Floridians. Cannon stalked off the floor in anger Sunday night with five/minutes remaining, in the first half of an American Basketball Association game between Miami and the New York Mets. "I've been an All-American all my life," Cannon said. "Now I'm being treated like some bum. They can't do this tome." Cannon's first pro season has been spotty as the college hero attempted to adjust his style to the pro game. He complained of handling by coach Jim Pollard. "Once up the court, once down the court and I'm back on the bench," he said, "I'm so damned confused I don't know what's happening." Cannon played 90 seconds in the Sunday game, which Miami won, 103-98. Cannon asked Pollard why he had been removed prior to leaving the court. The coach accused his expensive rookie of "standing around" as the Mets narrowed a Miami lead. The danger, of course, is that the condition will worsen. There isn't much opportunity for a quarterback to rest, his arm during the season. Na- math relaxed yesterday, on the Jets' normal off-day, but he will not throw during the usual Tuesday passing drill designed to loosen the quarterbacks' arms. "We do that sometimes anyway to rest his arm," Ewbank said. "He's got to throw a lot later in the week." In order to maintain his timing with his receivers, Na- math normally throws on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday as well as on Sunday. "The only real cure is rest," Namath' said, "but about all I can do for it is to get regular rubdowns:." Namath attributed the soreness in his arm to the soreness in both of his surgically scarred knees. • "I'm not setting up properly because of my knees," he explained, "so there's more strain on my arm." Toledo named in Tangerine ORLANDO, Fla. (AP)-Unbeaten Toledo has clinched a berth in the Dec. 26 Tangerine Bowl game by winning the Mid-American Conference. Toledo downed Miami of Ohio, 14-10, Saturday and has three nonleague tilts remaining. The bowl-bound football club is 7-0 for the season.

Passes off to teammate Unselfish Howe forgoes 4th goal Associated Press DETROIT—He wanted to help a teammate. That's why Gordie Howe, the National Hockey League's "Mr. Hockey" gave up a chance for more personal glory, Howe, in 21 seasons as a Detroit Red Wings' player, has a multitude of awards to his credit. One of the few records that has escaped him — a four* goal game —could have been his Sunday night in the Wings' 4-3 victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins. Howe had collected the 19th hat trick of his career and the opportunity for a fourth goal arose in the final seconds of the contest. The Penguin net was unattended and Howe had the puck with a clear shot ahead. But that's When his concern for teammate Alex Delvaccnio made him pass up the chance. Delvacchio, who shared the ice with Howe for 19 seasons as a Red Wings' player, hasn't scored a goal this year and has only seven assists. "When I got the puck inside the blue line, I took a look out of the corner of my eye for Alex, Howe said. "He's looking for his first goal this season and it always gives a guy a lift to score a goal." Howe said he tried to pass the puck to Delvecchio but it hit a Pittsburgh player at the blue line and bounced back. Luckily, he said, It came back to him and he handed it off to Frank Mahovlick, who, was farther up the ice and In a better position to score. As it turned out, Pittsburgh's Dean Prentice managed to get a deflecting stick in front of Mahovlich's shot. The unselfish performance brought the Olympia Stadium crowd of some 12,000 fans to their feet for a standing ovation. At 41, Howe should be used to the adulation which generally goes to a sports star who's made a habit of breaking records. He's rough, tough and rowdy on ice, but when the buzzer sounds, the soft-spoken Howe does a complete reversal and his humility and "nice guy" manner' have won him the title of "a real gentleman." Howe's career record of goals now totals 739, almost 200 ahead of the nearest NHL all-time gdal* maker, the retired Maurice "Rocket" Richards of the Montreal Canadiens. His go-geVem play has made him the runnerup ttf retired former teammate Ted Lindsay in. the penalty; minutes department. Including eight this season; Howe's total stands at 1,555; Lindsay's at 1,808. r ' He shows little sign of aging/although he sayS. he's feeling it and has developed a bad habit. *?» "I'm doing too much stickhandling with one hand on the stick," he groaned, rubbing a left wrist in which he had arthritis. In practice he uses a brace on the wrist and because that brace is stiff, he finds himself using only one hand. He doesn't use the brace in games, but still is prone to stick-handle with one hand. Runners send SOS call Pike on hot line; Canucks host tonight By FRANK GIANELLT Republic Sports Writer VANCOUVER, Can. Roadrunner coach Alf Pike was on the hot line yesterday, dialing H-E-L-P. He got a lot of conversation, but no immediate pledge for a "hard hitting forward — somebody who's going to intimidate the opposition before it penetrates our defense." "I have one particular guy in mind," said the Phoenix ice coach as they drew up battle plans for tonight's 9 p.m. (Arizona time) game with the Canucks. "If I can get him, he's going to shake a lot of guys loose from the puck," Pike said. As things stand, Pike has assembled a lot of hardskat- ing, deft forwards. But only Bob Charlebois is throwing his weight around. As a consequence, Charley-boy, last year's leading scorer, isn't getting many goaling chances. "But," says Pike, "he's busting up plays." Phoenix is in a position to add emergency help because the Runners presently have two men injured and are one under the league quota of 18 players. Going into tonight's action, the Runners have the second best "goal-against" average in the league. They've given up 29 points in 10 matches. Only San Diego with 26 in nine matches has a lower total. Phoenix tied with Vancouver last time it played here. A win tonight would move the Runners into second place ahead of the Canucks who now lead them by a point. Little suffers sprained knee DENVER (AP) - Floyd Little, leading rusher in the American Football League, suffered a sprained right knee in Denver's 13-0 victory over San Diego here Sunday, Bronco officials said yesterday. They said it was doubtful Little would be able to play in Sunday's game at Oakland. ,_lana 6 Kentucky 6 PIMsburah 4 Carolina 4 &r ork ...•::.•::: I Eastern D.vb.on • .857 — .750 Vj .667 7V4 .375 .333 Dallas Los Angelea Washington 3 New Orleans 4 Denver 2 Western Division Isoo ,400 .400 .222 Monday's Result New Orleans 125, Washington 115 MOTOR OVERHAUL Ringi, grind valves, gaskets, oil and labor Prices Sfait or S 74 PARTS and LABOR < cyl.
