It has been a year of fruslra- t i o n, disappointment and a drought that has extended since August last year when he won his last tournament. "I can't get any worse be- cause I've hit the bottom. If I knew my problem, I would try to solve it." Cox, 31, whose only victory in 1570 at the Simon Fraser open in Prince George, B.C., will have to come up with a brilliant performance when he tees off with an expected 105 players in the CPGA tourna- ment.

Key test for Lions at coast tonight Eskimos place Terry Swam on waivers VANCOUVER (CP) Coach Eagle Keys is counting on a win for his British Columbia Lions in tonight's Western Football Conference Rame against Ed- monton Eskimos, and the out- come could hinge on Lhe toe of punier turned-place kicker Ken Phillips. A victory put B.C. alone in second spot behind Cal- gary Stampcders, and the Lions would still have at least a game in hand over the other three WFC clubs.

Tlie Four poinls padded Jonas' lead iii Llie Western Football Conference scoring race to four points over Calgary's Larry Robinson. Jonas has 31 poinLs. Robinson who also had a four-point night, converting four of the Sfc.nmp criers' five touch- downs, moved into second place ahead of Saskatchewan fullback George Reed whose 24 points included a conference-leading four touchdowns. In other statistics re- leased this week by the Cana- dian Football League that do not include Monday night's game: the 'Riders' work- horse, has a OFL career mark for most carries and is taking a shot at two other league records; LaRose, Winnipeg Blue Bomber end, has taken an early lead in the pass-catching de- partment with team-male Jim Thorpe; is setting a hot pace among conference passers. Rccd has already cracked the barrier, only the second CFL performer to reach that plateau, and is taking a long-range run at the yards rolled up by Johnny Bright, former Calgary and Ed- monton Eskimo star. Reed now has yards. The Saskatchewan fullback's 86 touchdowns since joining I3ie club in 1063 have moved him to within five of the career total compiled by running back Dick Sliallo in 12 seasons with To- ronto Argonauts. Jonas' versatility is registered in the Winnipeg offence. Ills point up of one touchdown, 10 converts, four field goals and three sin- for more than one-third of the Bombers' 102 points this season. Ho has also passed for a con ference-leading six touchdowns in Winnipeg's five games, com- pleting 68 of 124 passes for yards. His closest rival, Ron Lancas- ter of Saskatchewan, has made good on 55 of 116 for fi6G yards and only one touchdown LaRose, a six-foot-three, 215- pounder from the University of Western Ontario, is getting his first opportunity to perform of- fensively in his second year with Ihe Bombers. Though listed as a defensive back, he's been used almost ex- clusively as an offensive end and shares the WFC pass-catch- ing lead of 18 with Thorpe a flanker. ANDY CAPP FLO ISN'T 'OME WORK AN1 I'M HAVIN' A BATH SO COME j BAC L promptly kicked five field goals in five attempts as the Lions won their firsl game of tlie sea- son, 29-1C over Winnipeg. The question is whether Phil- lips can repeat his performance before a home crowd. "It's always tougher at says Phillips, "and especially after what I did in Winnipeg. "But I don't Ihink I'll miss loo many. I've got confidence from the 45-yard line ill and anylhing over 50 yards is half luck any- way." Phillips Is a conventional place kicker, a left footer who hits the ball squarely on the loe. B.C. lost to Edmonton 20-19 two weeks ago, but the Eskimos have made a lot of changes since then, most of them com- ing after Calgary crashed them 31-1 last week. Larry Lawrence, with B.C. for a five-day trial before going to Edmonton, will back up starling quarterback Don Trull. Rusty Clark, the former backup man, is on a five-day trial. Other changes include ex-Blue Bomber Charlie Bryant, replac- ing injured Jim Thomas at half- back, and Al Namanny, being reaclivaled to replace receiver Terry Swam. Swarn has been placed on waivers subject to re- call. KI5YS NOT WORRIED Keys doesn't appear worried about Trull. "He didn't exactly pick us apart in he said. Keys said Lawrence would lie "our biggest problem." "We had bint here for five before Edmonton got him and we know be can Urrow and scramble." Keys said he'd like to give quarterback Don M o o r h e a d more playing time. "He's throwing bctler than he ever has and the only way he's going to learn is to play." He plans to use Jim Young more as a receiver than running back and wants halfback Josh Ash ton to get in on more of the action. School system rapped Santoni fires two-hitter George Santoni fired a two- hitter and guided the pennant winning Dallas Cowboys to a IJ-1 romping over the Contract- ors, giving thorn a one game lead in the Senior Men's Fast- ball League semi-final playoffs Tuesday night. Meanwhile the M and K Gen- erals opened their semi final series against the Labor Club with a slim 5-3 victory in the second encounter played last night. In (he Dallas Contractors contest Santoni fanned 10 hit- lers en roule to victory while losing pitcher Ron Zasadny struck out tliree and was tagged for 11 hits. George Waselenak stroked a single and two doubles to lead the Cowboys at the plate while Dan Srntoni pounded a home run and a double and D a r r y 1 Lcavitt a home run and a sin- gle. Zasadny and Garth Lamb poked out a single apiece for the Contraclors. In the second game of the evening Dennis Allen gave the Generals a one game lead in Uieir best of five semi-final se- ries with the Labor Club hurl- ing the third strike past seven Labor Club hitters. Dennis Hyiychiik suffered the loss in going the distance. The Generals were paced by Wally Kniclikywichs' doublo and single while Lloyd Yama- gishi and Al Higa chipped in with two singles apiece. Hnrry Kagata hammered an inside the park home run along with two singles and Roy Ada- chi Iwo singles for the Labor Club. ELRICH TIRE SPORT SCORES NATIONAL LEAGUE Pittsburgh SI.

"'I'm firmly convinced that if Canada is lo go anywhere in sports, it will happen only when sports become a meaningful part of the school said Lefaivc at the Canadian Na- tional Exhibition where he ap- peared to outline plans for a Canadian fitness award project. 'Some schools don't yet rec- ognize sport as being part of tho total education... It slill seems to be a fringe activity." He noted ihat some schools over-emphasize sports such as football and hockey for1 boys, which is "why our girls did well and our boys didn't at the Pan- Air erican Games al Call." "It's a question o[ adding the individual sports like tennis ant Dadminton and exposing our youngsters to them." Tlie sport fitness project now at the CME was conducted ear- ier at the Calgary vSlampede where more than boy? and girls between (he ages of seven and 17 underwent lests. The project here involves five one minute speed sit lips, standing long jump, shut- tle run, flexed arm hang and 50-yand sprint.
