The Eskimos, after two close losses to Montreal Aloueltes and Toronto Argonauts last week, need'a win against Ottawa to remain in contention in the Western Football Conference race.

The Hough Riders, who lost oth games in Ottawa, have had 14-day rest since taking a 244 trashing from Saskatchewan oughriders, leading in the VFC with eight points. I don't know how the layoff will affect us.1 It could work gainst us, especially with re- ards to tlie Eskimos who al- eady have played five games lis Gotta said in an nterview. Both teams, with inexperi- need offensive lines and rookie uarterbacks, are seeking more coring power. The Eskimos, outscored 90-56 lis season, have juggled their neup in the hope of strengthen- ing their pass-catching, running, ass-blocking and offensive line. They released tight end Sam Campbell and replaced him ith halfback Henry King, an Excellent catcher but an inexpe: ienced ball carrier. Import full- ack Alan Pitcaithley will move nto King's halfback position, aid Edmonton coach Hay auch. Dave Fahrner, a Canadian ullback, will start in Pitcaitb ey's fullback spot. Although ahrner is a rookie Jauch says ie has shown promise as a run- nel'. 'He can block. He and Pit- caithley should give our quart- erbacks better protection." The game be the fourth in .2 days for the Eskimos, who j lad a similar 1-4 record last rear when they finished out of lie playoffs. They trail Calgary Stampeders and British Colum- jia Lions, who share second ilace, by four points. Winnipeg 31ue Bombers are winless after 'our games. Gotta says Ottawa is "natu- rally having trouble" replacing quarterback Russ Jackson, and ks Margene Adkins and Vic Washington, but "likely will im- prove offensively in future ''We won't be an explosive scoring team like last year, at least until Whit Tucker comes off the injured list." Tucker, placed on the 30-day injured reserved list after a niee operation, will rejoin the club early in September. Monday, Ottawa added end Gwen Cooper from University of California in Los Angeles and released two Canadians, line- man Ed Joyner and defensive halfback John Kruspe. Gary Wood will start at quar- terback for the Hough Eiders and Don Trull will direct the Eskimos. The game Is scheduled for 8 p.m. MST. SDTTON, Mass. (AP) Billy Casper gained vengeance on one of his most frustrating layouts Monday, firing a three-under- par 69 and winning the Avco classic golf tournament by three strokes at Pleasant Valley Country Club. "After that first-round 81, the highest of my career, and fail- ing to make the cut for the first time since 1964, I guess I was more determined this Casper said after winning his fourth tournament this season. He was referring to his night- marish play in the 1969 Avco on .the same course. Casper vowed then he'll be back. He kept his word. "I wanted to make Billy said after finishing with a 72-hole total of 277, 11 under par, in the 72-hole tournament delayed by rain Sunday.

Alouettes Need Kicker MONTREAL (CP) Mont- red Alouettes, the only unde- feated team in the Canadian Football League this" season, Monday continued their search for a field-goal kicker. Latest arrival on a five-day trial basis is Jim Robertson, who failed to get a similar test in Winnipeg with the Blue Bombers of the Western Foot- ball Conference. Robinson is a conventional- style kicker and apparently was shunned by the Bombers be- cause of his lack of collegiate experience. The Als, winner of all three games they have played this season, released place-kicker Pierre Guindon last week.

League Expands SASKATOON (CP) The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League today announced plans to expand to seven teams. Regina, Saskatoon and Wey- burn are to continue in the league which will be expanded by the addition of Wilcos, Hum- Boldt, Melville-Yorkton and Fort Qu'Appelle. Moose Jaw, in the league last year, is being given a one-year leave of absence. Reports from Ottawa and To- ronto last Friday said the reve- nue department has agreed to allow the club to write off part of its investment in player con- tracts as a business expense for tax purposes. McHale said the tax body had been approached by the team shortly after the Expos had purchased 30 players from oth- er National League clubs to join an expansion last season. The players cost the Expos ?9 million and the team hopes to have these players classified as "depreciable assets." A revenue department spokesman said in Ottawa Fri- day the department will re- gard the price paid for acquir- ing the players as an initial capital, investment by the club. McHale said the revenue de- partment was approached "in the way any business ap- proaches the tax people." "We have made an invest- ment and are seeking a ruling 'rom the revenue added. 'We have not heard from them yet, and I don't know where the Toronto papers got their information that we are joing k get a tax concession in :his matter. We are just hoping we are." McHale said such write-offs are standard procedure for pro- fessional baseball in the United States. t Charles Bronfman, Expos board chairman, said the club's 10 co-owners have been negoti- ating with Ottawa officials and submitted the latest proposal two weeks ago. He said no reply has yet been received.

Gas City Hockey School Brought It About Brooks Dinner Rousing Success By PAT SULLIVAN Herald Sports Writer BROOKS (Staff) Many more sportsman dinners hi this thriving community 90 miles northeast of Lethbridge and they will have to Invest in a new Elks hall. Monday evening the walls of the Elks Hall in Bfooks were bulging as better than 200 turn- ed out for the first Eastern Ir- rigation District Sports man Dinner. Not one of the dinner offi- cials would say so but if en- thusiasm indicates inter e s t there is more than enough in- terest in making Monday's af- fair an annual event. It has been a long lime since they have held a dinner such as the ma last evening in Brooks and those who came were there to see Bobby Hull. Their patience was rewarded, the Golden Jet of the Chicago Black Hawks didn't let them clowu. Ticket sales for the dinner, which was to have been an all- male gathering, were going slowly so a number of wives and girl friends were on hand. It will be tough to keep the gals away from any future dinners. They enjoyed' themselves as much, if not more, than the fellows. Proceedings got under way with an outstanding meal at and for the next torn- hours the top names in some of the top sports in liie world had the floor. Brent Seely introduced Henry Viney. an old Lethbridge Na- tive Son, and tilings began to roll. In the words of Viney "This is a fine head table you people of Brooks have gathered to- gether." The head table was, for a fact, a fine head table as well as a long head table. The guasts numbered 18. At the head table were rodeo stars Malcolm Jones and Dave Penner, football great, former and possibly future, Don Luzzi and hockey stars, almost too numerous to mention, Gregg Pilling, Allen Hamilton, Ace Bailey, Wayne Muloin, Seth Martin, Bob Barber, Tony Koll- nan. It was because of the Gas City Hockey School, directed by Gregg Pilling, that the dinner came-about. This marks the second year the school has been held in Brooks and the dinner made the annual gather- ing of hockey enthusiasts just that much better. The man who once said, when he was just a rookie, "I wouldn't go across the street to see a hockey has be- come a great fan of the fastest game in the world. Like Arnoli Palmer for golf, Bobby Hull has worked wonders for the game of hockey. There has never been a better leftwinger in the National Hockey League and there may never be. Bobby Hull puts it all together on the ice and doesn't leave out muc1- when behind a microphone. A sincere, humorous a n c totally entertaining put the finishing touches on a fine dinner. It was indeed the i ering'to its feet, Pilling got things going and it wasn't until Bobby Hull said "I want to thank you very sincerely for being that a majority of (he gathering moved from their seats. Hull was indeed a true gentleman. "Though there appears to be agreement in principle on the question of depreciating play- ers' costs, there is absolutely nothing definite yet." Lew Hayman, president of Toronto Argonauts of the Ca- nadian Football League, said he knows of no such tax conces- sion available to CFL teams or x of any efforts by football teams to gain such concessions. A spokesmat for Toronto Maple Leafs of t h e National Hockey league said profes- sional hockey teams in Canada do not receive any such conces- sions either, but would defi- nitely press for something simi- lar if the Expos gain such fi- nancial relief.
