by the Bombers when he added I don t know if it was my break- ing tackles or their sloppy tackling Whatever the reasons Harris looked impressive as he dodged and darted his way to a club rushing record But Harris t the game s onh star Ex Bomber defensive back Grady Cavness picked off two of Winnipeg quarterback Don Jonas passes and also recovered a tumble Harris opened the scoring in the first quarter on a one-yard plunge and Ivan MacMillan converted Lions made it 8 0 in the second quarter on a MacMillan single from the Winnipeg 36 then made it 15-0 on a 12 yard touchdown pass from

League, hoping to speed up play in the 1974-75 season may be giving out free shots to individual players if the NHL rules committee approves the move Stotty Morrison, chairman of the rules committee and NHL referee-in-chief, said Thursday that the free shot was proposed following a meeting of a sub-committee formed to present ideas for speeding up play The free shot would be taken after the referee catches the defending team trying to deliberately slow down the game or force a faceoff There would be no substitution at the time of stoppage If approved, a designated player from the opposing could be any forward or defenceman as long as he was on the ice at the time of be allowed to take a free shot at the goaltender from an end faceoff spot Morrison said the puck would be placed on the spot where faceoffs take place and the designated player must stand as he normally would for a regular faceoff The stick must be in con- tact with the ice and must touch the inner circle and the player must shoot at the net when the referee gives the go- ahead The rest of his team-mates and opposition would have to be outside the faceoff circle Once a whistle was blown, however, they could go after the puck or man Morrison said the de- fending team "jumps the there would be an im- mediate whistle and the shot would be taken again If it happened a second time, the defending team would receive a minor penalty If the attacking team makes a false move, the free shot will be forfeited The rule will be recom- mended to the rules com- mittee for endorsement at a meeting Aug 23 in Toronto It is designed to prevent a defending being moving the puck along the boards, or holding it for a whistle It is also aimed at goalten- ders who pin the puck on their net to force a whistle The rules committee also will be asked to consider a plan that permits substitution only while play is in progress or when a team has been penalized It was suggested that this be tried during specific exhibi- tion games By THE CANADIAN PRESS Teams from North Battleford and Quebec took the lead Thursday in the Cana- dian seniors baseball cham- pionship with each ending the second day of competition

Rain can't extinguish Summer Games torch By CLARKE HUNTER Herald Sports Writer Flexibility was the order of the day Thursday as Southern Alberta Summer Games of- ficials had to be on their toes to keep up with the timetable for their four-day event in Fort Macleod A heavy morning rainfall and chilly temperatures throughout the day necessitated a few changes in schedules and facilities but after the second day of com- petition, none of the sporting events is behind schedule Track events had to be shifted from a very muddy 400-metre track to a makeshift 322 metre oval on the infield and some of the tennis matches were played indoors at the Curling Rink Officials also changed the format of the junior men s slow pitch tournament from the scheduled double to a single knockout and speed ed up the delayed tennis ac- tion by modifying the com- petition to single-elimination rather than two-of three matches The changes allowed the Games to enter Friday s ac- tion without any backlog of events to catch up with and except for a few scattered complaints there was nothing but praise for the way that the affair was handled Of course no one was overly enthused about thf rain It was a chillv bunch of swimmers that lined up for their events at Colonel Macleod Pool yesterday and goiters mixed their com pliments for the grass green course liberally with gripes about damp clothing and verv short rolls But conditions were the same for everyone and the athletes seemed well aware of the fact that the officials were doing the best job possible in the situation So competition in track and field and competitive swimm- ing was completed on Thur- sday, and events today in slow pitch tennis golf, cycling archery and equestrian started on schedule this mor- ning Fenton Webster and Grant Wheeler, both of the M D of Cardston, each registered front nines of 41 as the golf tournament for men 45-54 years old struggled through the morning rain But once the water stopped coming down Webster caught lire carding a pair of birdies and four pars on the back nine for a one over par 36 and a gold medal-winning round score of 77 He just rolled past the hole on a five foot birdie attempt on the eighteenth hole which would have given him a par 35 coming home Wheeler carded a 43 on the final nine which gave him a total of 84 and the silver medal Vicky Davies of the City of Lethbridge contingent took the women s 45-54 tour- nament, registering nines of 51 and 46 for a 97 stroke total That gave her a four stroke margin over second-place Marg Whitehead of Willow Creek who finished at 101 In junior men s slow pitch play, Cardston beat Raymond 4 1 in the championship final to take the gold medal Cardston had advanced to the final by defeating Bow Island 9 3 while Raymond had bested
