DETROIT W) - It was hard tot
tell whether there were tears Well-
ing up in 'Clarence Campbell's
eyes or just the television lights
glistening in them.
But the president of the Na-
tional Hockey League would not
hide his gloom at the crowded,
noisy but sorrowful luncheon yes-
terday at Olympia Stadium that
formally marked the retirement!
of Gordie Howe of the Detroit Red
Wings.
"Inevitably it will be treated
as a sad day," Campbell said
prior to the introduction of Howe
at a head table }filled with the
Who's Who of hockey.
"It is a sad day.
"Never in the hitsory of hoc-

ual but I'm n

ages of NHL re- dent iri Norris' insurance com-
'evealed Wednesday pany is that his wife will be able
e Associated Press to travel with him on business
eduled news confer- trips and "I really wanted my
weekends."
His capacity as vice president
gives him responsibilities in some
of Norris' interests outside the
realm of hockey, including the
Norin Co., a holding company
r ts which owns 43,000 acres in Flori-
da, much of which will be de-
veloped into home sites.

recalled. "Nobody knew it, but
I took that puck and gave it to

Colleen. I told her this is the
puck from my last goal."
Contributing reasons for his
retirement were an arthritic
left wrist and a wish from his
recently deceased mother that he
quit the game.
Howe's children and brothers
were present at the Olympia
Room Louonge as was Sid Abel,
long-time friend of Howe, and
former Wings' Coach and Gen-
eral Manager Ted Lindsay, who
was a member of the famed
Production Line which included
Abel and Howe and Bill Gads-
by, former Wings' coach.
Ironically, if not deliberately,
Thursday was the ninth day of
the ninth month.

DETROIT - Luis Aparicio
drove in five runs with a homer
and four singles and the Boston
Red Sox erupted for seven runs
in the eighth inning to over-
whelm the Detroit Tigers 12-6
last night.
Aparicio, whose homer was
his fourth of the year and first
since May 1, contributed two
hits and drove in two runs in
the decisive rally that snapped
the Tigers' three-game winning
skein.
Jim Lonborg, 8-7, went the
distance for Boston, giving up
eight hits including a pinch
home run by Daton Jones.
Aparicio hit his round-tripper
in the first inning off Bill Gil-
breth and singled for two runs
in the second.
He opened the eighth with a
single off losing rookie Jack
Whillock, 0-1, Carl Yastrzemski
walked and, with one out, Rico

Petrocelli singled home a

BALTIMORE - Frank Rob-
inson poled the 497th home run
of his career and Jim Palmer
tossed a six - hitter for his
18th victory of the season last
night as the Baltimore Orioles
defeated Washington 4-2.
Palmer, now 18-7, started the
third-inning rally which led to
the first run off loser Denny
McLain, 9-19, singling to left
field.
A bunt single by Paul Blair
and a walk loaded the bases
and Palmer scored on a sacri-
fice fly by Boog Powell.
Robinson unloaded his 22nd
home run of the season leading
off the sixth. Two outs later,
Dave Johnson smacked his 16th
homer.

Gridders prep
for Wildcats
With only 24 hours or so before
the first game of the season the
Michigan Wolverines appear
ready to face tough Northwestern.
The Wolverines went through a
light workout yesterday prepara-
tory to this morning's flight to
Chicago. Sophomore signal-call-
er Kevin Casey led the first
stringers on two sustained mar-
ches against the second stringers
and looks ready to start his first
collegiate game.
Casey complained of shoulder
soreness earlier this week but was
hitting on his passes yesterday
and Wednesday.
Defensive tackle Fred Gram-
bau has a hip-pointer injury
however, and may see only limited
action tomorrow. Backup defen-
sive end-Clint Spearman also is
not in top physical shape with a
pulled leg muscle, but the nu-
cleus of the team is in superb
condition despite the shortness of
fall practice.
Because of the eleventh game
being added to the start of the
season, the Wolverines have been
able to practice only for three
weeks.
Tuesday's practice was very
poor this week but the following
day everything fell into place and
Schembechler w a s noticeably
pleased.
If Casey doesn't come through
tomorrow, Schembechler can turn
to one of two excellent backup in
junior Larry Cipa and sophomore
Tom Slade.

president.
