Cahill, who ditched conven- tional football strategy and used alternate quarterbacks on each new offensive series, saw his experiment pay off as Toronto dumped Saskatchewan Rough- riders 22-17 in a Canadian Foot- ball League interlocking game. Greg Barton and Joe Theis- mann, both lured away from the National Football League dur- ing the off season, made Cahill the master strategist by flinging a touchdown apiece to rookie halfback Leon McQuay. And 19-year-old Ivan Mac- Millan, signed earlier in the week by Toronto, added six points, converting both touch- downs, kicking a 14-yard field goal and a 42-yard single. The other four Argo points came In the third quarter when Houghrider Al Ford was forced to concede a pair of safeties less than two minutes apart. After a first-quarter, 12-yard field goal by Jack Abendschan, it wasn't until the third-quarter that Saskatchwean began pick- Ing away at Toronto's 21-3 lead. Saskatchewan rookie quarter- back Bubba Wyche replacing veteran Ron Lancaster who left midway through the third quarter with injured ribs jogged three yards across Toronto's goal line. In the final quarter, Wyche threw a 30-yard pass to split end Silas MeKinnie before the clock ran out. "I was satisfied with two Cahill said after the game. "I was satisfied with our two quarterbacks and the fact that we won. But we still have some inconsistencies to work out." "They (Barton and Theis- mann) were in constant com municalion on the sidelines talking it up all the time. I think it's going to work." "Joe anrl I basically get along pretty well working Stolen tickets Larks' problem MONTREAL (CP) One of the biggest headaches for the front office staff of Montreal Alouettes of the Eastern Foot- ball Conference this season is not trying to sell tickets for every Montreal home game, but rather watching out for stolen season tickets. "Usually we have some- thing like 10 cases a game where people show up with tickets that have been stolen from our season ticket hold- general manager Red O'Quinn said in an interview Friday. "Most often the guy is completely innocent, using tickets he bought on the street or in the bar somewhere. "Every time someone buys a ticket from somewhere other than one of our ticket outlets, without knowing ex- actly where it comes from, he runs the risk of some embar- assment. "We have a list of all tick- ets reported as lost or stolen, and if they show up at the stadium they will be picked FOR THE MONTH OF AUGUST ONLY 25 OFF TIRES 6-400x18, 2-350x18 PRICE 1 only-New F8-250 tNDURO KAWASAKI.

Since the morning after the Als 29-16 win over Saskatche- wan last Tuesday, tickets to next Thursday's Toronto Ar- gonauts visit have been sell- ing fast. "We've never had a sellout here yet." says Smith's assist- ant Archie Kwiatt. "But Ihe way things have started off for this one we could be head- ing for our first."

As long as we keep winning I'll do any- thing he says. I'm sure Joe feels the same way." It was Toronto's second win in two starts, both at home. For Saskatchewan, it was its third loss after an opening victory and its fourth game in 11 days. SCHEDULE HURTS Roughrider George Reed thinks the tight schedule may be hurting the team. "With so many games In such a short lime, everybody's he said. "It takes a quarter or a half to loosen up." The 31-year-old fullback lugged the ball 19 times Friday to increase his lifetime total of carries lo a CFL record. The 116 yards he picked up lifted his lifetime gain to 811 yards short of former Ed- monton Eskimo great Johnny Bright's record. "I would have liked it a lot better if we had won the foot- ball Reed said. "I would have given all the records for a couple of wins on the road." Lancaster, who said he in- jured his ribs in Saskatchewan's eriiibition matches, added he should be ready to start in his club's next game Aug. 13 against Winnipeg Blue Bomb- ers. "Every time they're hit, they're gonna get Lan- caster said. "We've played four games in 11 days and in 18 days we've played six games. It takes a helluva toll on a football club. A week is gonna feel like a month." The Roughriders, already In- jury-plagued, came out of Fri- day's contest with two half- backs, Henry Dorsch and A] Ford, possibly sidelined.

Botls, a long-ball hitter from Los Angeles who placed second in the 1970 B.C. Open, ana Bill Wakeham of Lake Cowichan, Ont, each fired five-under-par 66s to head the field into today's second round of the 54-hole, tournament. Six thsr professionals trailed the leaders by one, including John Elliot, Jr., of Fort Lauder- dale, Fla., winner of the Mani- toba Open in an extra-holes playoff last month.

"I never ran the mile, but you never could tell who was going to win by who was leading at the said the 24-year-old Visalia.Calif., pro, thinking of his sevcn-under-par 133 that paced the field by three shots after 36 holes. Heard had his reason for a cautious approach. Despite in 1971 winnings, he hasn't won in three years on the tour. His bulge over second- place Bob Lunn, in with 136, was the largest of the year. The previous best after 36 holes was two strokes by Bob E. Sfnilh in the Los Angeles Open, Charles Coody in the Nelson Classic and Arnold Palmer in the Westchester Classic. It took a cut of 148 or better and 71 players were in the third round today over the plush, tough Firestone South' course. George Knudson of Toronto shot a 75 and a 73 for a 148 total while Wmipeg's Wilf Homenuik failed to make the cut with, a 79 and a 73 for a 152 total.

In third place was Dale Doug- ass, who survived a two-over- >ar six at nine for a 68 and a 137 total. One shot back in fourth came Marti and Hill. Marti matched par while Hill, younger brother of Dave, slipped to a 71. Only other players to beat par were Bert Greene and Gay irewer, deadlocked at 139 Greene shot a 69 and Brewer a 71 in the second round. The course was tough on ome of (he game's big names. Nicklaiis was at 141, defending ihampion Frank Beard, who md a 69, was at 142, Palmer at 43 after taking a 143. Also at 43 was Masters champion Charles Coody, who fired a 69. The field will be reduced to the low 70 pros plus ties and the leading 10 amateurs and ties for Sunday's final round. Wakeham, B.C. open cham- pion in 1968 and 1969, began his bid for the first-place prize money with a pair of 33s. He picked up six birdies, but had to settle frr a one-over five on the lOlh, a 370-yard straight- away hole which normally lends itself to birdies. oils had nines of 32 and 34, Bolts had nines of 32 and 34, his best performance in five trips around the course. But the American PGA tour regular almost blew the lead on his final hole when his tee shot hooked too far left and went into the trees. Half the field began the round on the 10th tee and Bolts ivas on the troublesome 410-yard ninth hole when his shot left the fair- way. He pitched out, hit the well-trapped green with his third shot and one-putted for a par. "I was surprised because I hadn't made a par on that hole in four practice hs said.
