Jim Duncan, Calgary Stam- peder coach, said Leo Taylor, Hugh McKinnis, Kudy Linter. man and Dave Cramner were running well. Cramner, a question mark for the Stamps this year because he had chest surgery, has re- covered "unbelievably" well, says Duncan, and he's running as hard as ever. Duncan indicated Calgary, primarily a passing team, would be doing some running against the Edmonton front four. The Stamps passed success- fully against Winnipeg in their 34-10 league opener while Ed- monton's running in their loss to Saskatchewan was poor. Pierson Manages o Triumph First downs.........

Toronto's outstanding flanker, Bobby Taylor, who caught two touchdown passes, was injured early in the fourth quarter trying to snag a goal line pass and did not return lo action. CAHILL WORRIED Head coach Leo Cahill said j after the game the injury "looks j bad." i "He was hit in the knee and we won't know for sure until to- morrow. T don't want lo say more on it right now." Taylor's pass catching was one of the few bright spots for the Argos, kept at bay by a strong Montreal defence except in the third quarter. Toronto went ahead 3-0 in the first quarter when Don Jonas hooted a 39-year field goal hut the Als bounced back early in the second when Dick Smith flipped an eight-yard touchdown pass to Wade after taking a handoff from the Montreal quarterback. Terry Evanshen, obtained from Calgary Stampeders in an off-season trade, look a 15-yard touchdown pass from Wade less than three minutes later and Monlreal jumped inlo a 14-3 lead. Toronto replied with a touch- down by Taylor, alone in the end zone to gather up a pass from Wilkinson. But the Als took a 20-10 lead into the thin quarter after Wade carried the ball across the goal line on one-yard plunge. Pierre Guin- don missed his only convert ol the game when he tried for the extra point Wade scored his third majoi of the contest early in the sec- ond half to extend Montreal's lead to 17 points but the rest of the third quarter was mostly Toronto. JONAS STARTS FAST Wilkinson was replaced by Jonas and the new signal caller directed the Argos down the field, capping the drive with a 21-yard touchdown pass lo Tony Moro. The Als took over the ball and, aided by a pass interfer- ence call against Toronto and a subsequent talking penalty to Cahill, moved to the Argo 11- yard line where Wade fired his second touchdown pass to lanker Evanshen. Toronto forced Montreal deep nto their own zone where Wade jave up a safety touch but was Toronto still unable to move the oall. The Argos took over on the Als 46 and three plays later 'onas hit Taylor on a 23-yard ouchdown pass fo make the core 34-26 for Montreal al the end of the quarter. Jonas attempted a field goal rom the 47 lo end the game and he Argos picked up their last point when it went wide and Gene Gaines conceded a single.
