Former Navy quarterback Paul A. Glenny of Fitchburg, Mass., was one of six crewmen killed in a plane crash in American Somoa Thursday morning.

A four-engined Navy Orion clipped the cable of a tramway and crashed into the Rainmaker Hotel in Pago Pago. Three civilians were also killed.

It was not immediately known whether Mr. Glenny was the pilot. He had 2,100 flight hours as a Navy pilot.

Mr. Glenny quarterbacked Navy from 1970-73 and was the starter as a senior. He ranks fifth on the academy's career yards-gained and fifth in career passing. He held the school record for highest average gain per play with an average of 12.7 yards against Air Force in 1973.

George Washington University's Brain Magid is his year's national free-throw shooting champion, NCAA statistics released yesterday showed.

Magid last season made 79 of 85 free throws for a .929 percentage, third best in NCAA history. In two seasons at GW, Magid missed only 11 of 145 four shots.

Detroit Red Wings goalie Rogie Vachon, expressing dissatisfaction with his play the last two seasons, says the National Hockey League club should consider trading him.

Vachon, 34, came to Detroit two seasons ago and signed a five-year pact for $1.9 million.

"I've been here two years now and things have been pretty bad," he said. "I don't know what is going to happen."

Vachon, who posted four shutouts and a 3.61 goals-against average in 59 games this season, said "I've had problems playing here."

Detroit has not expressed interest in trading Vachon.
