seem bent on leading the confer-

last night, but three of them re-

"It did come as a bit of a sur-
prise," Harkness said at the team's
Olympia Stadium office, adding,;
"It's a great break for me oppor-
tunity wise and financial wise."
However, the first-year National
Hockey League coach said "I
haven't been relieved of my job as
a coach. This was made very clear
to me by Mr. Norris."
"But." he added later, "if I
follow the requirements of Mr.1

both jobs right."
Meanwhile, Norris called Coach'
Doug Barkley up from the team's'
Forth Worth farm club of the
Central Hockey League to serve
as a temporary coach. He was ex-
pected to join the team today
before the game in Detroit against
Buffalo. He "will take over be-

In the all-around competition,
Rick McCurdy led the Wolverines
with a 52.85 total, while Ray Gura
had 52.75 and Ted Martirfinish-!

The strongest event of the night
was in the long horse, where Gura
posted a 9.3, McCurdy and Terry
Boys tied at 9.1 while Pete Rogers,
was close behind with a 9.05 total.
Coach Newt Loken was very1
pleased with the performance of
Ed Howard on the high bar. How-

to lead all competitors in t h a t
event. Rounding out the Wolverine
high bar attack were Marti with
an 8.85 and Gura with an 8.75.
One of the more pleasant sur-
prises was the performance of
freshman, Monty Falb who equal-

Sale's 8.65 gave the team a 26.85

Judge upholds Haywood shift;
orders hearing on NBA rule
LOS ANGELES (M) - U.S. Dis-
trict Court Judge Warren J. Fer-
guson yesterday in effect ruled for
and against basketball star Spenc-
er Haywood in his law suit against
the National Basketball Associa-
The court, after a nearly three-
hour hearing, denied an action
by the Denver Rockets of t h e
American Basketball Association
which sought to have the 21-year-
old superstar play for them and
no one else.
In the more provocative ruling,
Ferguson continued Haywood's
temporary restraining o r d e r
against the NBA for 10 days. The
player's action is aimed at the
NBA's rule regarding the National
Collegiate Athletic Association's
If, the judge ruled, Haywood
and his battery of attorneys have
not filed prima facie evidence
within the 10 days, a cause of ac-
tion questioning the antitrust pos-
sibilities in the case, the restrain-
ing order then will be dissolved.
The decision means that Hay-
wood can resume play with the
Seattle SuperSonics of the NBA.
It was the signing by the Seattle
club of Haywood on Dec. 28
that precipitated the biggest
wrinkle in the long, drawn a n d
Haywood filed against the NBA,
attacking its rulethatsno college
player can compete in the league
until his college class has grad-
uated. The ABA has no such re-
striction. Haywood's class at the
University of Detroit graduates
Attorney Arthur Groman, rep-
resenting the NBA, charged in the
hearing that President Sam Schul-
man of the SuperSonics instigated
the entire action on behalf of
Haywood against the NBA - of
which his club is an expansion
member - and accused the multi-
millionaire owner of attempting to
"subvert and destroy the NBA."
Haywood last year signed a six-
year contract for $1.9 million
which actually extended over a
span of many years, beyond the
first six when it was presumed he
would be playing regularly with
the Rockets. He originally h a d
signed with Denver as a financial
hardship case the previous season.
Haywood became disenchanted
with the contract last fall and sev-
ered relations with Denver, setting
off the ensuing chain of lawsuits.
