taeHiami offerR
MIAMI (MP)-Bernie Parent, goal-
le for the Toronto Maple Leafs,
became yesterday the first Nation-
al Hockey League player to jump
to the fledgling World Hockey
Association by agreeing to terms
with the Miami Screaming Eagles.
Parent's contract reportedly is
in excess of $750,000 for five years,
plus a house, boat and car.'
L E S T E R PATRICK, Miami's
general manager, said Parent
agreed to terms for a multiyear
contract. He said the formal sign-
ing would take place Sunday at:
which time the details of the con-
tracts would be made revealed.
Parent, 26, one of the best
young goaltenders in the NHL.
was in Detroit for a Tuesday night
game. He refused comment.
He played 3% years for the
Philadelphia Flyers before being
'aded to Toronto Jan. 31.
Howard Casper, a Philadelphia
attorney, said: "fBernie will get his
money even if the Miami franchise
does not operate, or if the whole
league does not operate"
THE WHA is scheduled to begin
play next season.
"By the time the five years are:
up," added Casper, "he'll be a
millionaire or very close to it. By
the time he's 31 he'll never have
to work another day unless he
wants to."
The attorney said he expects
the Maple Leafs to take Parent to
Wourt over his jump to the infant
league, but he said he believes he
can win the case because "Bernie
has no contract with Toronto."
He also said he didn't think Par-
ent would be banned from the
NHL should he ever wish to re
turn.

CHICAGO (P) - Commissionerf
Wayne Duke of the Big Ten yes-c
terday announced a hearing willc
be held by conference athletic di-t
rectors in Minneapolis tomorrowr
in the legal battle by two sus-c
pended University of Minnesota
basketball players for varsity re-
instatement.
Duke's announcement followed1
a ruling earlier yesterday by U.S.1
District Court judge in Minneap-9
olis. He ruled that the athletic
directors must formally act before#
6 'p.m., Friday in the case stem-1
ming from a bloody brawl at the
close of an Ohio St te-Minnesotat
game at Minneapolis Jan. 25. I
THE MINNESOTA players, Ron
Behagen and Corky Taylor, have
been, under Big Ten suspension1
since the fracas in which three
Ohio State players were hospital-
ized.'
Duke's statement said the Con-
ference will follow guidelines set
in the ruling of Judge Earl Lar-
son, including notice of the hear-
ing to "involved principals."
Duke's statement, released by a
Big Ten staff member, said "Be-
canse this hearing relates directly
to the pending litigation before
Judge Larson, I believe any fur-
ther comment at this time regard-
ing this matter would be inappro-
priate."
The site and time of what the
staff member said "probably will
be a private hearing," were not
disclosed.
Judge Larson noted in his ruling,
that opportunity to participate in
college athletics is of "substantial
economic value to many students."
The ruling directed that unless
the Big Ten conference's athletic
directors hold a hearing and up-
holl the suspensions by 6 p.m. Fri-
day, Corky Taylor and Ron Be-
hagen would be reinstated on the
team. In addition, the players were
immediately allowed to return to
practice sessions.
In his opinion, U. S. District
Court Judge Earl Larson stated:
"IN THESE DAYS when juniors
in college are able to suspend their
formal educational training in ex-
change for multimillion - dollar
contracts to turn professional, this
court takes judicial notice of the

fact that, to many, the change to
display their athletic prowess in
college stadiums and arenas
throughout the country is worth
more in economic. terms than the
chance to get a college education."
A meeting of the conference
athletic directors already had been
called for tomorrow in Chicago by
Big Ten Commissioner W ayne
Duke for "follow-up" procedures
in the case.bo
TAYLOR AND BEHAGEN, both
6-foot-9 funiors, had been sus-
pended for the remainder of the
season following the Jan. 25 melee
that hospitalized three Ohio State
players overnight in Minneapolis.
Attorneys for the players, Frank
Brixius and Ronald Simon said
they had been notified .of the
meeting tomorrow, but said the
pair probably would not attend .
In his opinion, Judge Larson
also set down guidelines for the
athletic directors' meeting. Ir
cluded was a stipulation that the
hearing record be made available
to the players in the event they
wish to appeal the decision to the
faculty representatives of the Big
Ten schools.
