ft the Arizona Republic Phoenix, Sat,, June 30, 1MI fttAJVir C.I \XELU Totem toughie takes karate HOCKEY PLAYERS, oK t'eason, do some weird and !wacky things. ; Take Ron Homenuke, the Seattle Totems' rookie, who figures to be more dangerous this season than last. He's taken up karate — spends two hours a day at the craft. f'When I have the time to devote to it, I'd like to go through all the different colored belts," says the Totems' roughneck who already has Established a sphere of intimidation, even without karate. Karate involves several different kicks among other things. But of course you can't do much of that on ice with skates on... ';:Qr can you...? .Closer to home, some of the I* h o e n i x Roadrunners are spending summer in profit and pleasure. Defenseman Gary 8 r a u n got the auto racing bug and ventured at Central Arizona Raceway a few times — and in one epic with fellow blueli- iler Howie (Cowboy) Young. Only it wasn't much of a race. Young, who rides a motorcycle, blew down to Coolidge on the bike, suffering a flat tire en route, and climbed into the race car with a heavy foot. He'd never circled one before, but reportedly came within a few hundredths of a second of the track record in leaving Braun befuddled at the starting line. Andy Hinse and Don Caley conducted hockey schools at Phoenix and Tucson. Bob Barlow and Wayne Hicks came back with successful real-estate salesman accreditation and are sailing for Sun Lakes. Frank Hughes (Houston; and Ted McCaskill (Los Angeles) who jumped to the new World Hockey Association also are back in the valley as are former Roadrunners Kerry Bond and Chris Evans who liked the sunshine well enough to purchase homes. .Up in the front office, Mike Lange has bowed out of public relations duties and is negotiating with management about return next year as 1 (.Voice of the Runners."

Says Wells, "this one is strictly G-rated, a family production." ... Hockey returns to Arizona in mid-September when the Runners aset up training camp at Tucson. The preseason schedule, hopefully, includes a game with a National Hockey League club, plus several with Denver and San Diego. Bob Charlebois, one time "bombshell" of the Roadrunners' forward line before "retiring," has lots to celebrate since resurrection as a star of the World Hockey Association. Sought and bought by the New England Whalers, "Charlie-Boy" is back in the chips, and has added jubilation with birth of an eight- pound plus son ... SIRVICE?

Mazda tells you what owners tell us. With gasoline rationing already a fact of life, with more serious supply shortages looming up, Mazda believes car makers should deal realistically with the mileage issue. Let's do that. The mileage that counts is the mileage owners can count. On their own cars. With their own driving habits. Our owners tell us they get 17 to 21 miles per gallon, with some reporting even better mileage, some less, depending on driving conditions. Good, respectable figures. They're even better because Mazda isn't an underpowered little boing-boing. Road Test Magazine said this: "You have in essence muscle car performance, mated with the potential for 23 mpg. cruising." And remember, our gas mileage figures are realistic. Because they come from real owners. We don't quote gas-mileage figures on the smallest car we sell We quote them on the largest car-our rotary engine RX-2, We don't advertise fuel economy figures resulting from the Environmental Protection Agency's emission-control tests. Why not? Because the EPA cautions everybody these figures shouldn't be projected to everyday driving situations. We don't hire prof essional drivers to make highly publicized test runs under ideal economy conditions. In addition to good gas mileage, there's another important way you can save. The rotary engine hmmms along on the cheapest gas you can buy. Regular, low-lead or lead-free is fine. '• In fact, Mazda urges the oil companies to produce a much lower-octane gas for cars, preferably about 80 octane. This could push prices to a level that's appreciably lower. Yet this fuel would completely meet all rotary engine requirements, Any Mazda owner will tell you about the good gas mileage. And any Mazda dealer will let you test-drive the'great performance. ^••^ The Mazda goes Hmmmmm. Glondalo Jack Reed's Mazda 4$39W,OI©ndaleAv«.
