Now Maury Wills Is 30 Ho earns about year, holds the major league record for stolen bases in a season and is considered o good bet for a managerial job and the Hall of Fame once he's through playing.

The Dodgers trail first- place Cincinnati Reds by fifi games in the National League West as they open an impor- t a n t three-game series against Pittsburgh Piratej tonight. Manager Walter Alston, who has depended on Wills to lead the Dodgers tlirough a decade of stretch drives, in- dicates he has no plans to take tho veteran off the bench. "He's not going lo play as long as Russell continues to hit and field as well as ho Alston says. "You've got lo like Russell, says Wills. "He's a great kid and he's becoming an ex- cellent player.

The Stampeders were incon- sistent against the IJons, as in two previous games against Winnipeg Blue Bombers which resulted in a 31-7 victory at home and a 41-14 setback on the road. The script was altered slightly against the Lions be- cause of a brilliant perform- ance from the Stampeders' de- fence, headed by their from four of John Helton, Free James, Dick Suderman am Craig Kolnzan. DEFENCE FORCED PLAY Throughout the hard-hitting contest be-fore fans, the Calgary defence hurried B.C quarterbacks Don Moorhead and Don Bunce, forcing them either to throw erratic passes or lose valuable yardage. Despite brief offensive flur ries, the game was a defensiv battle. The Lions lost yards on broken plays and thi Stampwlers yards.
