McLain until the fifth, when Felipe Alou cracked a leadoff single. Fox, whose clarion chords during a 1369 Tiger-A's game rattled McLain into- a run-cost- ing balk, picked up the tempo after Alou's hit. McLain com- plained to Goetz and the plate umpire ordered the organist to stop playing while the pitcher was in his motion. But Fox continued to pound the keyboard between pitches as McLain walked Frank Fernan- dez and was clipped for a run- scoring single by A's hurler John (Blue Moon) Odom. Then, after an error filled the bases, Goetz caught McLain breaking his motion and called a balk, al- lowing Fernandez to trot home. McLain charged the umpire and was ejected after a heated exchange. joetz said: 'He came in with some choice words about my ances- try. I ignored it at first, but he repeated it and I said 'You've got to go.' It's the first time I've had to throw a pitcher out of a game." McLain agreed with that part of the I ran in and questioned his ancestry."

Rookie Back Leads Raiders Past Eagles PHILADELPH A f AP) Rookie quarterback Ken Stab- ler fumbled a touchdcnvn, but more than made up for it wltii three scoring passes as he led the Oakland Haiders 'to a 30-19 exhibition victory over the Philadelphia Eagles Monday night. Stabler, who missed one year in the National Football League because of a knee injury and another for personal problems since graduating from Ala- bama, tossed touchdown passes of 49 yards to Hay Chester, 22 to Marv Hubbard and 60 to Hod Sherman. The 24-year-old Stabler was almost the goat of the game when he baubled the snap from centre on a Haiders' field goal try. The ball was grabbed by Eagles rookie Ray Jones, who romped 77 yards for a touch- down that tied the score at 1646 with three minutes re- maining in the third period. The Eagles, who had trailed1 16-6, gained the lead on a 35- yard field goal by rookie Mark Moseley front Stephen F. Aus- tin College. It was his third of the game. Late ill the quarter, Cord Harwell of Saskatchewan took jarring tackle from Gig Pel and lost the ball to Stewart, w picked it out of the air a scampered 22 yards into the en zone.

The Eskimos are eager to another victory after droppin ,wo ot their first three game .his season. They are also un lappy with the heavy schedul which calls for them to play tw more games in less than week. The Eskimos are already in surly mood after a stinging 35- loss to British Columbia Lion 'ast Thursday. After the A ouette game, they play Toront Argonauts Thursday night. :'This schedule has to be a bi says rookie hea. coach Ray Jauch of the Eskies "We play here then'we g Toronto. Thau us jus about enough time to work uick kick. "I think the ot game ilus the number of days availa )Ie ought to be fed into a com iuter mat would come out with ome kind of a fair schedule. SEED A WIN The Eskimos really need a vin in tonight's game if thei Eastern swing is going to be nything but a complete disas er. The game could be a passing match, unless the Alouettes egin hitting a ground attack seems unlikely at this oint. The Als have won their irst two starts, including a bi{ ne against the Argos, ant inder the tutoring of. rookie oach Sam Etcheverry, a strong erial attack again seems a kely bet. However, some of the Al- ue'tte heavy rushers such as emu's Duncan, Dick Smith and Denson may be ripe for i explosive ground attack. Defensively, the Als second- ry will be getting a first-hand ok at quarterback Don Trull ho earned a big reputation as U.S. college passer. Hnwever, rull has already gained a CFL eputation for throwing passes ito the hands of the opposition. Trull likes to throw to his nds on quick slant patterns and nth dangerous receiver's such Hanker Jerry Swarm, he iuld make the game a real ;ueaker. Jauch likes to think of his am as a potential threat in the of a massive building pro- "Don't think tilings haven't een going well for us.
