S HEAD COACH ONLY:
Blazers sign Wilkens

Wilkens' 14 years in the NBA
included three years as player-
coach in Seattle. Asked if it
was a struggle to give up play-
ing, he said: "I -had to ser-
iously consider it. I love play-
ing basketball. But the only
way to take the job was to
quit playing."
When Walton, who has the
reputation of being uninterested
in wealth despite his multi-mil-
lion dollar contract, signed with
Portland, he celebrated by buy-
ing a new shirt.
"Bill bought a shirt; I'm go-
ing to buy a tie," joked Wilkens
at a news conference called to
announce his appointment.

A reporter asked Herman
Sarkowsky, team president, if
there were anything left in the
team checking account after
signing Walton and Wilkens.
"Not a heck of a lot,' Sar-
kowsky grinned.
Walton's presence undoubted-
ly will create additional pres-
sure on Wilkens to produce a
winning team.
Wilkens, 36, played for Provi-
dence College, then joined St.
Louis of the NBA, going to Se-
attle when the Hawks moved to
Atlanta. He coached and play-
ed in Seattle for three seasons,
almost making the playoffs one
year. Wilkens later was traded
to Cleveland.

for an estimated $2.5 million
earlier this month. THE JEWISH GRAD GROUP
Walton has been hailed as a 11UM r RE TH R
player who could turn a fran-
chise around, as Kareem Ab- FOOD-VOLLEYBALL-SURPRISES

Canadiens Dryden
will be back in goal
MONTREAL (A - Goalkeeper Ken Dryden, who left the
Montreal Canadiens before the start of the 1973-74 season to pur-
sue a law career in Toronto, will return to the club next season,
the National Hockey League team announced Friday.
The team said Dryden has agreed to a multi-year contract
beginning with the 1974-75 season.
No terms of the contract were announced.
IN THREE PREVIOUS seasons with the club Dryden was a
winner of the Conn Smythe Trophy as top playoff performer in
the 1970-71 Stanley Cup victory, won the Vezina Trophy as top
regular season goaltender in 1972-73, and won the Calder Tro-
phy as the NHL's top rookie for his work in the 1971-72 season.
Dryden, 26, had left the Canadiens just prior to their de-
parture for training camp eight months ago. He said at the time
he was unable to renegotiate the second year of his two-year
contract with the NHL club.
