BOUNCING PUCK It wasn't one of Orr's patented goals. After Wayne Cashman dug the puck out of the corner, he sent a pass to Ken Hodge, who spotted Orr. The Boston superstar merely took a swipe and the puck bounced through a maze of players pasl Philadelphia goalie Bernie Parent. The goal spoiled a tremendous performance by the Flyers, who hadn't won in Boston since their first appearance here as an NHL expansion team Nov. 12, 1967. The Flyers argued vainly t h a t Cashman had held defense man Andre Dupnnt in the corner. That cost Dupont a 10-min- ule misconduct. Cashman said that Dupont.'s skate got caught in his sock, and the Boston forward showed a torn sock as proof. "I just saw the rubber as 1 was coming in," Hodge said "It was just laying loose and 1 picked it up. I turned to look for (Phil) Esposito and sa\v Bobby breaking into (he slol area and got it to him." "We'll still bring that Stanlej Cup to Philadelphia," Parent said. "I didn't have a clear view on their first two goals and Orr's was no different." Cashman also played a ke role in another manner. He en gaged Philadelphia defensemar Ed Van Impe in a high-sticking and punching duel in the second period. Flyers defenseman Jim Watson jumped in to help and drew an automatic game misconduct penalty for being !hc third man in a fight. With Most Glamour Names Missing, Norlhwett Arfcanias TIMES, WeJ., May 8, 1974 «j 11 VAYrrriviLLi. ARKANSAS Texans Favored In Houston Open cut back on the money this season. Most of the great names still are missing from the 144 man tietd t h a t includes 51 qualifiers. The Houston event immediately precedes next week's Colonial National--the first of the newly designated tournaments in which leading players must compete. Many of the game's top attractions are taking oft this week lo rest and attend to business commitments. Johnny Miller is in Japan on business. Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf are fishing in Mexico. Gary Player is at lome in South Africa .Arnold Palmer, Billy Casper, Lee Trevino and Buddy Allin. winner of last week's Byron Nelson Classic, are taking time off. CRAMPTON ON HAND Even with those absentees, the Texas-dominated field--one quarter of the entries live in this state -- includes five men who have won tou rtitles this year along with defending champion Bruce Grampian, a strong contender for Ihe $30,000 first prize.

(AP) -- As if Penn State's football team doesn't give opponents enough trouble, the Nittany Lions have a potential secret weapon lurking on campus- hypnotism. Dr. G. Thomas Tail, assistant professor of health and physical education, said Tuesday he has successfully used hypnotism to nelp increase athletes' self-confidence. The Lions have not tapped Dr. Tail's talents and (hey are not likely to, since the NCAA frowns on hypnosis, he says. Not that the players should :ave any reason to lack con- iidonce in their performance on the field. Over the past seven years Penn State has rolled up a 70-8-1 record and ranker! in "he Associated Press Top Ten six times. But if Coach Joe Paterno has any laggards lurking on his squad, Dr. Tail says hypnosis could help them plav up to their abilities. FOR THOSE WHO CHOKE UP "It can also be used for those players who perform well in practice but who freeze or choke up during competition " he said. Aces Shackle Travelers 7-1 LITTLE ROCK (AP) -- Jerry Stone doubled and then came home on a single by Joe Goddard in the ninth inning to spark the Alexandria Aces to a 7-1 victory over Arkansas in a 12 inning Texas League game here Tuesday night. Jerry Mumphrey scored in the first inning to give the Travelers a 1-0 lead, which they held for eight innings. Handy Wiles, the Travelers' pitcher, did not allow a hit until the fifth inning. The Travelers walked (hree Alexandria players in the 12th inning and allowed hits bv Joe Goddard, Marc Rhea and Scott Brown to give the Aces six runs and the victory. "We made enough bad plays -- menial and physical errors -- in those last three extr,a innings to last us a month," Jack Krol, Traveler manager, said later. "You really hate to lose a game where a guy pitches nine innings like Wiles did." John McAllen, (he \vinning pitcher, went 11 innings, walked three batters and gave up eight hits. He is now 1-1. Arkansas leads the Texas League east division with a 10- record. BOURBON Fancy words don't make it with you. Neither do fancy promises. Your bourbon must simply be the best tasting. The smoothest.
