Derek dons Philly skates

PHILADELPHIA (A) - "Like
the Godfather they made me
an offer I couldn't refuse." So
jested Derek Sanderson after
jumping from the champion
Boston Bruins of the National
Hockey League to sign a mul-
ti-year contract for a reported
$2.6 million with the Philadel-
phia Blazers of the new World
Hockey Association.
James Cooper, president of
the Blazers tolds a news confer-
ence yesterday that for the
1972-73 season Sanderson was
"the highest paid professional
athlete in all the world." He
said Sanderson would make
more this season than Bobby
Hull, Wilt Chamberlain, Joe
Namath, or Pele, the highly
paid South American soccer
player.
Cooper refused to disclose the
exact amount involved or the
terms of the contract, stating,
"I will only say that the money
is in the range of the $2.5 and
$2.6 million figures I've seen,
and that the years involved are
within the range of the 5 to 15
years I've read. It's definitely
in that range."
Sanderson explained thai he
had given the Bruinsevery op-
portunity to match the Blazer's
offer and that he made the
switch with the blessings of
Boston's top executive.Weston
Adams Sr.

"I'm very, very close to
Weston Adams Sr. and we've
always been on very good
terms." Sanderson said. "I dis-
cussed it with him and he told
me 'as a friend, and not as an
owner, I must tell you if that's
the offer than you must go. I'm
sorry to see you go.' As a
friends he shook my hand and
said 'you gotta go."'
Sanderson said the Boston
fatis, however, are not taking
as lightly the loss k Bruins'
stars to the WHA.
"They're very upset. Sand-
erson said. "I've been getting
telegrams and letters and so
has my attorney . . . and they
wanted me to stay in Boston.
They wanted to keep the hock-
ey club intact so they could
have a dynasty. But right be-
fore their eyes because of the
competitiveness of this country,
a dynasty has dissipated."
Boston has lost five players
to the WHA, including goalie.
Gerry Cheevers, Cleveland,
John McKenzie, Philadelphia
and Ted Green, New England,
and rookie Ron Plumb, Phil-
adelphia.

BARCELONA BIGGIE:
Davis duel set for Spain,
Smith primed for match

1224 Washtenaw - 665-8825
A CHARTER REALTY APARTMENT

BARCELONA, Spain (/(') -
The United States sends its No.
I ace, Stan Smith. against left-
handed Manuel Orantes of
Spain today in the opening
match of the Davis Cup Inter-
Zone tennis semifinals at the
Royal Tennis Club.
"Remember 1965." is the
battle cry of the Spaniards, re-
calling the upset of the Ameri-
cans in the last Inter-Zone
match here.
The second singles match has
the United States' 19-year-old
rookie, Harold Solomon of Sil-
ver Spring Md., against the for-
midable veteran Juan Gisbert.
Gisbert defeated both Dennis
Ralston and Frank Froehling
III in the 1965 Inter-Zone final
here, won by the Spaniards 4-1.
The 6-foot-4 Smith, an Army
corporal from Pasadena, Calif.,
winner of the U.S. Open title in
1971 and Wimbledon this year,
is favored to win both of his
singles matches, but the other
three points are expected to be
hotly contested.

In the doubles, Smith will
team with young Erik Van Dil-
len of San Mateo, Calif.,
against Orantes and Gisbert.
The red clay courts here are
very slow and should favor the
Spaniards, Spanish observers
expect both Orantes, 23, a fla-
shy youngster who is a protege
of Andres Gimeno, and Gisbert
to give Smith trouble on the
slow surface.
In the final two singles Sun-
day, the pairings will be re-
versed, with Smith playing Gis-
bert and Orantes meeting Solo-
mon.
Gisbert was the hero of
Spain's recent 3-2 victory over
Czechoslovakia. He was a sur-
prise choice for singles play
over Gimeno, the former con-
tract pro who is rated one of
the world's best.
The winner of the US.-Spain
series will play the winner of
the match between Romania
and Australia with the finals to
be held in either Bucharest or
Sydney.
