Caps' Bailey Would Like To Forget Halloween

WASHINGTON- Did you enjoy Halloween? Ace Bailey didn't even though he was a real cut-up. The left wing of the Washington Capitals came disguised as an accident looking for somewhere to happen. Somewhere turned out to be that old haunted place on West Madison known as the Chicago Stadium. Bailey is 28 now and has been playing junior or pro hockey for half his years.

DéTROIT— Veteran defenseman Terry Harper isn't one who thinks life begins and ends with a hockey stick. The Detroit hard rock has other diversions and he's doing something he's wanted to do as a kid—fly his own plane. Harper is following in the footsteps of at least two other National Hockey Leaguers in turning to flying. Islanders' Ed Westfall and Pit Martin of Chicago both enjoy flying being part-time pilots as well as pursuing their hockey careers. Harper's penchant for flying stems from his childhood days. He recalls when he was a young boy around his native Regina. Sask., in the Canadian west, pedalling to a nearby airport just to watch the planes take off and land. “I lived in the part of town that was close to the airport, and as far back…
