Orr offer refusable?
Minnesota Fighting Saints' President Wayne Belisle said his
team and the World Hockey Association are "right in the thick of"
the battle to sign Boston Bruins' hockey player Bobby Orr.
Belisle has refused to confirm or deny that the Saints have
offered Orr a five-year contract worth $6.5 million that would
include a $1.5 million bonus and a million dollars per year.
Whatever the offer, the Bruins have opened negotiations
with the 27-year-old-defenseman's attorney,. Alan Eagleson, by
offering a long term National Hockey League contract which
would pay between $400,t00 and $500,000 a year. Orr has one
season remaining on his contract with the Bruins.
"Harry Sinden Bruins' managing director will have to be
more realistic in his offer if he wants to retain Bobby," Eagleson
"I think the Bruins will get serious soon," Eagleson said from
his Toronto office. "For one thing, the owners of the team Storer
Broadcasting would like to sell the franchise. The asking price
is in the $15-million range, but how far would that drop if Bobby
Orr wasn't part of the deal?"
"We'd hoped this would not have become public" added Be-
lisle. "But, we've been trying to do whatever we can to make
our game more attractive for the fans."
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - State Sen. Bert Bank of Tuscaloosa,
introduced a bill yesterdav to rename the Alabama football sta-
dium in honor of Coach Pahl "Bear" Bryant. Bank's bill would

Bank said he wanted to honor Bryant for his contributions
to the school, the state and the nation.
The athletic dorm at Alabama is named for Bryant.
CALI, Colombia (,') - Phil
Boggs, saving his best for last
for the second day in a row,
successfully defended his title
in men's springboard diving
with a smashing victory yester-
day at the World Aquatic
Although Boggs took the lead
for good after the seventh dive,
he was pressured by Klaus Di-
biasi of Italy to the end,
BOGGS, who scored his high-
est mark on his last dive Mon-
day in the qualifying round,
came through spectacularly
once again. After Dibaisi scored
68.88 on his final dive, Boggs
needed a 63.64 to beat the
Olympic platform champion.
Ile got that and more, scoring
a 72.74 points.
"I knew about 65 would have
been enough," said Boggs, an
Air Force lieutenant from Colo-
rado Springs, Colo. "I'm super
happy to be winner again."
Michigan graduate Micki
King, Olympic gid medalist
and Boggs' coach at the Air
Force Academy, said Boggs'
final effort was by design.
"It's our catch-all dive," she
said of his acrobatics. "He has
lot of confidence in it and he
knows he can hit it well."
Boggs, 25, finished with 597.12
points to give the United States
its first gold medal of the
Games. Dibiasi took the silver
with 588.21 points, and Via-
tcheslav Strakhof of the Soviet
Union captured the bronze with
OHIO STATE'S Tim Moore

the first six dives fifth after
the 10th but vaulted into fourth
place on his final attempt, which
was worth 68.04 points.
