Roy Boe: The

of a Dream

Billy Paultz Roy Boe, 42-year-old president of the New York Island-
invites you to ers, has made rapid strides in the world of sports.

Five years ago he was completely involved in the garment
industry, with no sports connection whatsoever. Then he
bought the Westchester Bulls, a farm club of the New York
Giants, moving them after one year to Long Island .

Happy with his Long Island surroundings and exhilarated
by his first experience in the world of sports ownership,
Boe delved further, purchasing the New York Nets of the
American Basketball Association . It is under his aegis that
the Nets have made the ABA playoffs three-for-three after
failing to reach that plateau previously .

Last winter came an opportunity to move into hockey
via NHL expansion and Boe could hardly let it pass by.
Now, look out for the Islanders.

Boe is married to the former Deon Woolfolk . They live
in Darien, Connecticut, with their five children.

BllR Torrey:

Hlls
MeYer Cease

Not one minute after Bill Torrey was named General
Manager of the New York Islanders, he was asked: How
long will it take for the newest NHL expansion franchise
to become a winner?

Torrey, 37, formerly of Montreal, thought it would take
about 5 years to be a contender. "You've got to take your
lumps down the line. Nobody was too generous to us in
the draft." For this first season, Bill concentrated on solid
goaltending. In the draft he selected Gerry Desjardins and
Bill Smith. After the draft was over, he obtained veteran
Denis Dejordy from the Montreal Canadiens.

For two and one half seasons Torrey served as executive
Vice President of the Oakland Seals, another NHL expan-
sion team. The Seals qualified for the West Division
playoffs in both his two full seasons, 1968-69 and 1969-70.
The Seals, who came into existence in 1967-68, jumped
from last place to second under Torrey, then were fourth
the next year, but still made the playoffs.

Could the Islanders expect such a fast rise in the East
Division? "I've got a dual philosophy concerning our
organization," said Torrey. "We've drafted the best avail-
able players but we've also obtained good young players
and amateurs who'll be around for a couple of years."

Since his appointment last February, Bill Torrey has
worked tirelessly, sometimes 18 hours a day, to get the
Islanders ready for their tough, first season ahead.

"No matter what, we will have a scrappy, hard fighting
and youthful team that will not be outclassed and will give
the fans the excitement of National Hockey League competi-
tion," says Bill.

HOCKEY'S 3 MAIN RULES
Learn these rules and you will know the cardinal principles of hockey

ICING THE PUCK ' ' _,

Icing the puck is not permitted ' ' ''

when the teams are at equal nu- ' '

merical strength. Thus it is an in- ' '

fraction when a player on his team's '

side of the red center line shoots the

puck all the way down the ice, it crosses

the red goal line at any point other

than the goal itself and is first touched

by a defending player. When this occurs,

play is stopped and the puck is .returned

to the other end of the ice for a face-off

in the offending team's zone.

Icing the puck is not called if: d) when an attacking player who was onside
(in the same zone) when the puck was shot
a) the goalie plays the by leaving his net; down the ice, manages to touch it first; and

b) if puck cuts across part of the goal crease; e) when a team is playing shorthanded [email protected]

c) when a defending opponen4 in the judg- of a penalty or penalties.

ment of the lineman, could have played the

puck before it crossed the red goal line;

OFFSIDE

A team is offside when any
member of the attacking team pre-
cedes the puck carrier over the de-
fending team's blue line. The posi-
tion of the player's skates and not

that of his stick is the de-
terming factor. If both
skates are over the blue
line before the puck, the
player is offside. If he has
only one skatt: over the blue
line and one on it, he is
onside.

OFFSIDE PASS '''
'\
When a player passes the puck ' ' ' ' '\
from his defending zone to a team- ' ' ' ' '\
mate beyond the center red line '\
(thus crossing the blue line and
the red line) it is an offside pass.
The position of the puck (not the
player's skates in this case) is the
determining factor in deciding
from which zone the pass was

made.

By law Puerto Rican Rums are aged for mellowness.

Then, filtered through charcoal for added smoothness. All

after they're distilled at high proof for purity.

What we then end up with is a taste that's light,
dry and natural. One you'll stay w ith after the bikes 1

are put away. A taste as natural as nature.

Getty has found that
no mileage ingredient can give

the American motorist
better mileage than moregas.

A few years ago, the Getty Oil Company came up
with a new idea.

We wanted to offer people something meaningful.
Something they were looking for. Something that would
give them a good reason to buy our gasoline.

Of course, it contained the mileage ingredients people
have come to expect. And the additives. And the octane.

But that ·wasn't enough. We went one step further.
We decided to sell premium gasoline, for a few cents
less per gallon than most other major premiums.
It worked.
People began switching to Getty Premium.
It didn't take much to convince them that the only
sure way of getting more miles for their money was to
get more gas for their money.

Getty Premium.
More milesfor your money.
