Edmonton was ineffectual under the guidance cf quarter- backs Corey Colehour and Don Trull, collecting only Dave Cut- ler's 49-yard field gcel in the last minute cf tha first half. They didn't get ruffing ratil Busty Clark took over signal- caffiing duties against a second- string Calgary defer.ce later in the fourth quarter. Clark, from toe University ot Houston, ccmpleted four passes for 63 yards as Edmonton marched 80 yards to a two-yard touchdown drive by Henry King. Cutler was good with the con- vert. Tempers flared in the third quarter, with Rudy Linterman cf Calgary and Dick Dupuis ol Edmonton exchanging blows Linterman was thrown out of the game and Calgary was as- sessed a 25-yaird pewaity for roughing. McKinmis broke open a mo- notonous struggle in the last minute of the first quarter, gal- loping for 55 yards before Mike Law made a diving tackle to prevent a touchdown. But Me- Kiraiis came back moments later, smahing over the goal line from one yard out. Frank Andruski set up Cal- gary's other touchdown, inter- cepting Trull's pass at the Ed- monton 23-yard line and return- ing the bail to the 19. Keeling passed to Dave Cranmer for eight yards, to Bob McCarthy for five and then to Shaw for the points. Meanwhile in Toronto a specta- cular interception and 110-yard touchdown run by Jim Tomlin capped a 29-8 exhibition football victory for Toronto Argonauts over Ottawa Rough Riders be- fore a crowd of at CNE Stadium Wednesday night. The Rough Riders defeated Toronto in last season's Eastern Football Conference final. They were threatening from the To- ronto six-yard line lale in the final quarter when Tomlin, the speedy defensive halfback from McAllen, Tex., picked off a pass by Tom Dimuzio on his own goal line and went the length of the field. Mel Profit, Mike Schmlesing and Gwen Cooper scored the other Toronto touchdowns. Tom Jchansen c o n v e r t e d all but Tomlin's touchdown and added two singles on missed field ;oals. Dimuzio, who replaced a tired Gary Wood in the f o u r t h quarter, collected Ottawa's only touchdown on a nine-yard run. Tom Wilkinson started at quarterback for the Argos with Don Jonas, a star last year with Orlando Panthers of the Conti- nental League taking over in the second quarter. It was Jonas's pass to Profit in the end zone that started the mitral. Herman Mslhcws, another rookie, spelled off Jonas for a couple cf shifts with Wilk- inson coming back briefly in the third quarter. before a cheering, rain soaked gallery at the 18th. Dave Man- of the United States tacked a second-round 71 to an identical opener for a two under 142. The temperature was 71 dur- ing the morning rains but by noon the skies relented. A fresh breeze off St. Andrews Bay scudded the clouds up high and reasonable scoring condi- tions returned. Before the second round got under way, defending champion Tony Jacklin of Britain, head- ing for a record until rain stopped play, paid the penalty today for having to cool off overnight and completed his first round with a disappointing 67. He lost his chance for course record after shooting remarkable 29 on the first nin holes Wednesday before a down pour halted play with 38 golfe: still to be heard from. The 26-year-old U.S. Open champion ended up in ANDY CAPP th bushes with his second shot m the 14th when play was callet off hi the wake of the rmligh storm that turned St. Andre from a pussycat into a tiger. Jacklin completed the first holes eight strokes under par He had a good chance of setting a championship record rount when he set out to complete tin 18 holes this firs he had to decide what to d< about being in the bushes. After talks with the chairmai of the championship committee Wilbur Mufrhead, Jacklin de cidcd to pick up under a one- stroke penalty. BLIND TO GREEN Jacklin went back 25 j'ards behind the .hillock of gorse bushes and dropped his ball. He was blind to the green from his new position, but he wedgec over the hillock and on to tht green, the ball ending 18 fee from the pin. The champion's putt for a par five missed by an inch, and he was down in six, dropping his first shot of the round. Dropping further shots at th 16th and 17th, Jacklin finished in 67. Jacklin needed a 64 to set i record for a round hi the Britisl Open. Another Briton, Neil Coles equalled the record of 65 Wednesday to hold the first round lead among the golfer: who finished before the down pour. One shot behind, with 66, was Tommy Horton, also of Britain Officials allowed those on the course when the storm broke Wednesday to mark their balls and complete play today, a big break for Jacklin, who other- wise would have had his bril liant first-nine 29 scrubbed. "That was the best nine I jver said Jacklin. "I'l always remember it." WEATHER CHANGED The fickle weather turned after a dozen of the world's besl golfers benefited from perfect conditions to conquer the yard, par-72 links. Stretched out behind Coles Horton and Jacklin were such ;reats as Americans Arnolc Palmer, Jack Nicklaus and Joug Sanders, and Australia's 3eter Thomson, tied with 68s. In between were unexpected challengers Florentine Molena of Argentina, Harold Kenning of South Africa, and England's John Richardson and Maurice lembridge, all with 67s. The other par-busters such as Jay Brewer 'of the United States with 69, arid a large con- ingent with 70 and 71, were in no real position to complain, knowing the Open isn't won on my'one day except the last one. Roberto de Vicenzo of Argen- tina completed his round today, irsaking par for a 71. ;RITICIZES DECISION The Argentine was critical of he Royal and Ancient's deci- iion to let Wednesday's scores stand. "I think the whole round should have been rubbed 10 said. "By deciding that players from the place where their balls lay was not fair. It meant we had to play one round on a different course and in dif- erent weather." Lee Trevino, a Texan, com- pleted his round for a 68 and supported de Vicenzo's view. "We should all have started rom scratch he said. Moody, the former U.S. Open -lampion, had a 71 and was dis- atisfied. Gary Player at 74 was keeping his thoughts to himself. Two oldtimers on a sentimen- .il journey were clearly un- ikely to get past tonight's cut- off. Playing together, Bobby Locke and Denny Shuic, cliam- lions of a past era, shot a 75 nd an 82 respectively but con- ceded that they didn't really ex- icct much better.
