Future Looks Good For Gordon’s Dandies With Little Gil As Janitor

CLEVELAND, O.— You would think that maybe Barons’ boss Jim Hendy was trying to scare his club into shape. Hendy fixed it so that the Cleveland Barons arrived in training camp at St. Thomas, Ont. just a few skates before they were slated for an engagement with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Following that, the Barons played the Leafs again and the New York Rangers a brace of matches. Then Hendy gave his boys a breather by sending them against the Montreal Canadiens. The Barons came through all this is fine shape. They lost all but one game but they escaped with their lives and needed no blood transfusions. Assuming that the shock treatment prescribed by Hendy has not sapped all courage and desire from his troops, the Barons were due to launch a 72-game schedule of…

“Twenty Five Or Thirty,” Says Richard, In 18th Year

MONTREAL, Que.—Veteran Maurice Richard of the Montreal Canadiens starting his 18th season in the National Hockey League is figuring on at least 25 to 30 goals this season, maybe more. Now 38 years of age, the oldest by far in the league, Richard was recently quoted as saying he thinks he’s in for a good season. “I think I’ll get 25 or 30 goals,” said Maurice, “and if I’m lucky, maybe 35.” Last season Richard started out like a house on fire, but injured his foot and was sidelined for the entire second half of the season. He returned to action in time for the playoffs, but didn’t get much work. Despite his age Richard has looked as good as ever at training camp. He has been skating right along with the younger players,…
