Ron Lapointe, 42, a former Quebec Nordique coach, on Monday lost his battle with the cancer that twice forced him to leave coaching jobs. He coached the Nordiques from December of 1987 to December of 1988, when it was determined he would need surgery. Lapointe's last game for them was an emotional victory over the Montreal Canadiens. He hadn't told his players of his illness before the game, but team doctor Pierre Beauchemin had. A tumor had been discovered in one of Lapointe's kidneys.

Michel Bergeron has been named to replace Jean Perron as coach of the Quebec Nordiques, the NHL team said today. Bergeron, who was dismissed as coach of the New York Rangers on April 1 with two games left in the regular season, coached the Nordiques for seven years before joining the Rangers in 1987. Rangers General Manager Phil Esposito said he fired the flamboyant Bergeron because of insubordination, accusing him of secretly trying to make trades. Perron, an assistant general manager who became Nordiques coach Dec. 16 when Ron Lapointe was forced to step down because of a cancerous kidney, said he asked to be relieved of his duties last Monday.

It should come as no surprise that youths today are as race conscious as their predecessors. In spite of cosmetic changes that have taken place in this nation over the past quarter of a century, racism and its counterpart, white supremacy, remain pervasive in every major American institution and are still entrenched in all areas of social interaction, e.g., economics, education, labor, law, politics, etc.

At the Quebec Colisee, home of the Quebec Nordiques, public address announcements are given only in French. In any language, though, the Kings de Los Angeles were mostly awful Tuesday night in a 5-3 loss to the Nordiques before a crowd of 13,982. And speaking of language, King Coach Robbie Ftorek said his pregame oratory left something to be desired.

With the return of Mike Gartner, their best offensive player, the Washington Capitals have more than a tough defense. Gartner, who missed 12 games because of a knee injury, had a goal and an assist Tuesday night at Quebec to help lead the Capitals to a 4-1 victory over the Nordiques. On Sunday, Gartner had 2 goals and an assist. The return of Gartner, who scored 48 goals last season, has sparked the Capitals' surge into contention.
