Would headquarters use their best endeavors to provide so- cial or recreational activities after the competition is fin- ished The track and field events wind up tonight. Few of the athletes seem in- terested in spending their time touring the surrounding area, although this may be due to previous warnings of the danger of hijackings. NOTHING TO DO "But there's not a thing to do around said hurdler Brock Aynsley of Kelowna, B.C., who visited the head- quarters office looking for in- formation on the chances of getting reduced air fare for an early return home. "Some of Ihe guys around here are taking it pretty hard. There's no place to go for a swim here or any kind of rec- reation.'' Th? village is surrounded by seven-foot barbed wire fences with armed guards all around, although Jenny Meldrum of Toronlo, Ihe veteran hurdler, said the athletes are allowed to go out at night.

For the Eskimos, winning their first game in three starts, it was Dave Cutler's 39-yard field goal with 35 seconds re- maining which gave Edmonton a 20-19 win over British Colum- bia Lions. Bill Van Burlcleo was the hero for the Stamprders with a 37- yard single ait of the fourth quarter, giving Calyary a 9-8 decision over Ottawa Rough Riders in an interlocking game before fans. Frank AndrusM's interception on his own 52 and return to the Ottawa 23 which set up the win- ning point, brought an angry outburst from Frank Clair, gen- eral manager of the Rough Ri- ders. CLAIMS INTERFERENCE Clair said Andruski interfered with Hugh Oldham, attempting to catch the ball on a pass from quarterback Rick Cassatta, nnd should have been called for de- fensive interference. Andruski appeared to bump into Oldham while chasing the ball but the Calgary veteran ssid referee Jim Pyper of Ed- monton should have called it of- fensive interference. 'K was the worst call I've ever said Clair in the press box. "Everybody saw the interference but the referee." The win left Calgary unde- feated after two games and on top of the WFC standing. Ed- monton and Saskatchewan, each with 1-2 records, are second fol- lowed by Winnipeg Blue Bomb- ers and both winless after two games. Ottawa, record, has now with a 2-1 two more points than Toronto Argonauts, Hamil- ton Tiger-CaLs and Montreal Al- ouettes, all undefeated after one game each in the Easlern Foot- ball Conference. The Calgary game was high- lighted by outstanding defensive play and fine kicking perform- ances from punters Marcel De- Leeuw and Van Durkleo. BeLeeuw, traded to Ottawa earlier this year for Van Burk- leo, punted it times for a 51.8 average and ignited Ottawa for the game's only touchdown when he recovered his own punl' Roughies' 222. after Al Rankin fumbled on the Calgary 26. Van Burkleo, who punfed 10 times for a 46.2 average, also made a key first down when he picked up a loose ball on an- other punt attempt and scam- pered 33 yards. He also booted a 47-yard single in the second quarter. Larry Robinson got Calgary's other points wi'.h two field goals, from and 14 yards, and a 41-yard single on a wide field goal atlempl. Calgary picked up 20 first downs to Ottawa's 14, and had total yardage of 358 to the ANDY CAP?

"I think perhaps the new sys- tem may work against track coach John Freeman of Vancouver said. "But Ihen I can't determine for sure how it works because 1 haven't a copy of the new system and the Games people here won't give us one. "But I think we should win two medals in In the men's'lfl-m e t re relay, Ihe Canadian foursome of Inn Gordon of Bnrnaby, B.C., Brock Aynsley of Kelowna, B.C., Craig Black-man of To- ronto and Duug Chapman of Burnahy won their semi-final heat ahead of the U.S. team, anchored by John Smi'.h. The big swimming meet starts Friday but the divers al- ready have begun their battle for medals. In the women's springboard, Elizabeth Carrulhers of Edmon- ton was second after three dives and Bev Boys of Pickering, Ont., third. Fullback Dennis Duncan of Ottawa led the rushing parade with 89 yards on 14 carries, and Hcrm Harrison of Calgary was the top receiver with 99 yards on five catches. In Edmonton before fans, a rugged Eskimo defence set up the winning kick by hold- ing B.C. on a Ihird-down gamble on its own 35 with less than a yard to go. Fullback Jim Evenson rammed in'.o the line, but John Lagrone, Greg Pipes, Jerry Griffin, Ken Ferguson, Ron For- wick and Ed Molslad jammed him up. Edmonton coach Ray Jauch said the gamble was a good move by B.C. boss Eagle Keys. The field goal was Cutler's second of the night. He kicked a 42-yarder in (he first quarter and converted touchdowns by Bob Houinard and Griffin. John Ashton and Dave Easley got touchdowns for B.C., while Ted Gerela added two converts, kicked a 51-yard field goal and hooted singles on field-goal at- tempts from the 37 and 38-yard lines. .Houmard was Edmonton's top ball carrier with 45 yards on nine carries. Evenson carried 22 limes for 82 yards.
