The Redskins, however, realize they likely will be in Los Angeles again to play the Rams, champions of the Na- tional Conference West, in the first round of the playoffs in two weeks. "It could said coach George Allen of Washington. "We still have a chance to win the division if the Giants beat St. Louis." Allen was not looking two weeks ahead, but three, as he continued: "Then we'd go up north (and meet We'd rather win the Missoula Cubs defeat Kodiaks University of Missouia Jr. Varsity Cubs defeated the Lethbridge Community College Kodiaks 72-65 in an ex- hibition game in Missoula. Mont. Monday night. Dave Preus was a standout for the Kodiaks, scoring 20 points and pulling in 19 rebounds Glen Schuler added 14 more points for the losers. The Kodiaks problems came from their low shooting percentage "We took 72 shots and only made 21 from the floor." coach Ben Brooks said. "We played really good defensive ball, but our shooting average in the first half and only in the second half really killed us "Our boys got off to a very poor start We were down 40- 26 at the half but we came back to outscore them by seven points in the next half. The fellows were coming on at the end and if the game would have been one minute longer we could have won the coach stated "Wayne Anderson and Preus learned how to handle big men last night. The Cubs six foot 10 inch centre only managed five rebounds. Wayne and Dave did a real job on him." Greg Hess, usually a strong scoring threat for the Kodiaks, was ejected from the Ed Martyna badminton manager Ed Martyna, former bad- minton coach at the Lethbridge Community College, has been appointed manager of the Alberta bad- minton team competing in the Canada Winter Games.

"This fellow deliberately tripped Brooks said. "Greg got up off the floor and hit him The referee put him out of the game. The referee- ing was extremely poor and even the Montana coaching staff commented on the one- sided whistle blowing." The Kodiaks returned home today and started preparing for an upcoming weekend con- frontation with Big Bend College. The Kodiaks were slated to play Big Bend next Monday but have an opportunity to meet them Friday and Satur- day instead The site for the games has not been finalized as coach Brooks would like to play the games on a court in one of the surrounding towns. The college gym is booked for a food fair. Fairbanks named an Ail-Star It is not often that a Canadian distinguishes himself in American college football. Lloyd Fairbanks, of Raymond, is an excep- tion to the Canadian ex- celling in the American game. He was recently named to the 1974 Western Athletic Conference All-Star football team. Fairbanks, who is an offensive guard for league champion Brigham Young Univer- sity, is a senior at BYU and stands six foot three inches tall and weighs in at 215 pounds. He was one of the main cogs on BYU's winning team this year. His play on the line was a strong point in the Y's running attack, and enabled his team to post a seven win, three loss and one tie record. and play Central Division Champion Minnesota, because "then we'd have the National Football League cham- pionship at RFK." RFK is Robert F. Kennedy Stadium in Washington, D.C. New York Giants are at St. Louis and the Redskins finish at home against Chicago Sun- day. The Redskins, three-point underdogs against the NFC West Champion Rams, now 9- 4, boosted their record to 9-4 and tied St. Louis for the lead in the NFC East on the pass- ing of Bill Kilmer, who hurled three touchdown passes in the second quarter to give Washington a 20-10 halftime lead. Allen gave his assessment of the game, his second triumph in as many returns to Los Angeles since he left the Rams as head coach after the 1970 season. "It was a physical game and could've gone either way. We beat a good football team. It was important for us because it put us in the playoffs, and it knocked out our chief Dallas they had gone eight straight years." Washington's victory also wiped out Detroit's hopes to make the playoffs as a wild- card team. Allen, who worried about the pulled leg muscle of place- kicker Mark Moseley and the possibly broken right leg of middle linebacker Harold McLinton, called it a "costly" victory The Rams, however, hoped it was a lesson well received. "We made a lot of said defensive tackle Merlin Olsen. "I don't think this game will be any advantage to Washington if we play them in the playoffs. I just hope we correct the mistakes that we made." "It comes down to who benefits the most from said Joe Scibelli, the Rams' offensive guard. "It could be an advantage for both teams." The Rams lost for the first time in 13 home games since Chuck Knox took over from Tommy Prothro, Allen's successor. Allen said he was not sur- prised that the Rams a sur- prise pass by Mike Burke from punt formation in the se- cond period, because Dallas had pulled that trick in the Thanksgiving Day 24-23 loss to the Cowboys. "We were ready this Allen said of Burke's pass that was broken up and gave Wash- ington the ball on the Rams' 23. Four plays later, Kilmer threw a go-ahead touchdown pass. Rams' starting quarterback James Harris, groggy from being hit by Redskin pass rushers late in the first half, sat out the second half as young Ron Jaworski ran the Ram offence. Very few surprises on football 'stars By MEL SUFR1N CP Sports Editor TORONTO (CP) Tom Wilkinson of Edmonton Eskimos, the most efficient if not the most stylish passer in Canadian football, is the runaway choice as quarter- back on the 1974 allstar team one of nine first time nominations. The 31-year-old veteran of seven seasons in the Canadian Football League won by a wide margin over Ron Lan- caster of Saskatchewan RcA-ghriders, picked in 1970 and 1973, in voting by the Football Reporters of Canada.
