(AP) Blake Hull, overhearing a conversation about his hockey- playing father, interrupted: "Can they really sue my dad?" The question delivered by the 10-year-old son of Bobby Hull is very timely, especially after Tuesday's chain of events. Hull, who starred for 15 seasons with the Chicago Black Hawks of the National Hockey League, signed contracts worth $2.5 million to serve as player- coach of the new World Hockey Association's Winnipeg Jets. The 33-year-old "Golden Jet" appeared at a St. Paul, Minn., news conference Tuesday morning to sign a personal services contract and receive a $1 million certified check from WHA Properties Ltd. Then Hull, his wife and three of their five children, flew aboard <\ i hartered jet with WHA officials to Winnipeg to sign a $1.5-million playing contract with the Jets. WHA officials called it the largest contract paid to a professional hockey player. "His playing contract was signed here in Winnipeg." Donald J. Regan, WHA general counsel said from league headquarters in Santa Ana, Calif. "And it is governed by the laws of Manitoba." "If the Black Hawks and the NHL would like to sue the Winnipeg Jets in Winnipeg. I think they'll have a tough row to hoe." There was no immediate comment from the Black Hawks or NHL President Clarence Campbell if a suit would be filed maintaining that Hull had not played out his option, even though his contract had expired. Hull said he didn't think Arthur and William Wirtz, chief executives of the Black Hawks, would take him to court. "I think the Wirtz 1 will con- Suns May Sign von Breda Kolff PHOENIX, Ariz. (AP)-The Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association were to name a successor to coach Cotton Fitzsimmons today. Bill van Breda Kolff appeared to be the strongest contender. Shortly after the Phoenix Gazette reported Tuesday that Van Breda Kolff probably would have the job within 24 hours, the Suns called a noon press conference to name Fitzsimmons' successor. "Everyone is welcome to speculate as much as they want," said Suns general manager Jerry Colangelo. "We do have a press conference scheduled for noon today and he may or may not be the man selected." Van Breda Kolff, the 50- year old former Los Angeles , Detroit coach, went to the Lakers five years ago after putting together a combined 308108 record at Lafayette, Hofstra and Princeton.

The WHA is going to be as great as the NHL some day. My main concern now is to make the league go. I'm hoping a few more of the boys will come over now." Hull was the 91st player the WHA has signed and the 34th with NHL experience. A WHA spokesman said 24 more players have signed but "the other teams didn't want their announcements to get lost in the middle of the Hull signing." The WHA, gearing for its first season in the fall, has franchises at Albert, Chicago, Cleveland, Houston, Los Angeles, Minnesota, New England, New York, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Quebec and Winnipeg. Hull said he will play, as well as coach, for at least five more years. He then would serve as an executive in the front office. "I've still got a lot of good hockey left in me," Hull said. LAS VEGAS (AP) - Muhammed All wants Joe Frazier and Bob Poster wants a bout with All after a short and sad night of boxing for the Quarry brothers. After the Quarrys were stopped in their fights Tuesday night, a Quarry relative wound up in jail after a melee in the $100 seats after the All-Jerry Quarry bout in Las Vegas Convention Center. The 30-year-old All, 216'4, clowned with 27-year-old Jerry, 198, early in their heavyweight bout. He stood in the corner and gestured as if to say, "Come on. Give me your best punch." Ali, making Quarry his sixth victim in six bouts since losing to heavyweight champion Frazier last year, started hitting Jerry at will in the fifth round and punished him with innumerable blows in the sixth. Ali landed about a dozen blows before the fight was stopped 19 seconds into the seventh round. Foster, 33, handled Mike Quarry, 21, with calculated calmness to defend the light heavyweight championship for the 10th time—a record. A left hook knocked the youngest- ever challenger in the division on his back for three minutes. Foster said later he set up the knockout with a right to the body and a right uppercut to the jaw. Previously unbeaten Mike went down for the first time in 37 fights. The knockout came just as the bell sounded to end round four. Foster, at 173'£, weighed one and one-half pounds less than Mike. Meanwhile the Quarry clan argued with other fans after Jerry was defeated. Mother Arawanda and sister Diane were involved, along with Robert Colbaugh, 23, of Norwalk, Calif., a brother-in-law of Mike and Jerry. As security guards restrained Mike, Clark County Sheriff's deputies arrested Colbaugh, who was booked for investigation of battery and held on $250 bail. No other arrests were reported. Despite their troubles, there were cash rewards for the Quarrys—$200,000 for Jerry and $45,000 for Mike. Ali earned $500,000 and Foster $80,000 as the crowd of 6,549 in the 7,500 seat areana paid $349,800—8 Nevada record gate. Meanwhile, Ali, who previously has indicated he would fight Foster, said, "I'm back. I'm ready for Frazier. He's got to come out. He's been fighting nobody." Foster called Mike the best challenger he's faced and said he tagged him with the same punch combination he used to KO Dick Tiger for the title In 1968. Foster, who upped his record to 48-5 with 41 knockouts, said, "I'd like to fight a guy like Muhammed Ali. Him and I are the same type of fighters. I'll take him any time.

MONTGOMERY OUR 1OOTH ANNIVERSARY YEAR 3 DAYS ONLY! r Y 11 v Tf ^ OFF. Graebner Meets Nastase At Center Court Today WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Clark Graebner the fierce- serving American tennis star, renews a bitter old personal rivalry today in a bid toward winning the Wimbledon title. Graebner was scheduled to play his old foe Hie Nastase of Romania, in the second round on Wimbledon's center court. Nastase, a 25-yc,ir-old gypsy who was once a s!.. /'herd boy, is the No. 2 seed and is expected to meet Stan Smith of Pasadena, Calif., in the final. The last time Graebner and Nastase played each other was at London's Royal Albert Hall in January. That match ended in one of the most astonishing scenes ever seen on a tennis court. Graebner climbed over the net and grabbed Nastase by his shirt. The Romanian walked off the court claiming he had been intimidated. "It had better not happen on the center court," said an official of the All-England club. "We have given all players a stern warning that anyone who misbehaves in any way will be instantly disqualified." Graebner, of New York, is sore because the Wimbledon Committee left him out of the seedings. Nastase is one man in a three- pronged East European thrust for the Wimbledon title. The others are Jan Kodes of Czechoslovakia, seeded No. 5, and Alexander Metreveli of Russia, seeded No. 8. Both learned their tennis on hard courts but got into the seeding list because the grass court stars of the World Championship Tennis professional group are not competing. Metreveli, who spent the winter playing on the grass courts of Australia, came from behind to beat Patrice Dominguez of France 7-9. 6-1 6-4, 6-4 in the second round Tuesday. Smith reached the third round, beating Hank Irvine of Rhodesia 6-4. 9-8, 6-3. without reaching the form that took him to last year's final. Two more U.S. Davis Cuppers, Tom Gorman of Seattle, Wash., and Erik Van Dillen of San Mateo, Calif., both won their first round matches. Meanwhile, the fans still were waiting to see Chris Evert, the 17-year-old from Fort Luaderdale, Fl. Late Tuesday, they were gettng ready to welcome her on the No. 1 court. Onny Parun of New Zealand was on match point against Andres Gimeno of Spain, and Chris was due next. But Gimeno, the No. 4 seed, saved the match point and kept Chris waiting in her dressing room for the next 80 minutes. Group Sues Jim McDaniels NEW YORK (AP) - A suit against Jim McDaniels, who broke a $1.5-million contract with the Carolina Cougars of the American Basketball Association to play for the Seattle SuperSonics, was filed Tuesday in state Supreme Court. Athletes Advisory Group, which negotiated Daniels' pact with the Cougars, claimed in its suit, which also names as defendants the SuperSonics and the National Basketball Association, that the former Western Kentucky star paid it $10,000 in commissions and still owes $65.000. Under the contract, signed by McDaniels in 1970 when he was a student, he was to begin playing for Carolina in the 19712 season, and was to receive $1,425,000 for six seasons, the suit said. Then with the score at two sets all and 3-3 in the fifth, the match was halted by rain. It was scheduled to resume today.
