Can she do as well in the 1971 Games in Call, Colombia? If she does, chances are she'll do it in a different way. Elaine (Mighty Mouse) Tan- ner was the terror of the tank in 1967. Today, at 20, she is retired from competition, working as a secretary to Calgary and plan- ning for her wedding. Harry Jerome was one of the fastest men in the world over 100 metres. He's retired too- working for the federal govern- ment in Ottawa. Jim Day brought his hand- some bay Canadian Club up to a peak in 1967 and won the indi- vidual stadium jumping gold medal in a heart-stopping ride- off.

"Canada should take the sil- ver in the 400 freestyle and 400 medley and be a threat to the U.S. in the freestyle relay." In diving, he expects Bev Boys to be close, along with teanvmate Nancy Robertson On the eve of the Call games, Canadian girls went to London and burned up the track at the British Amateur Athletic Asso- ciation championships.

The results gave the 44-mem- ber Canadian team a total of nine medals in the competition so far. On Sunday, Joyce Mur- land of White Rock, B.C., won a gold medal in the women's air pistol and Chris 'Peters of Van- couver took a silver in the men's archery.

Bill Myers of Roanoke, Va., set a meet record in the light- weight division of weighltifting Monday.

EVANSTON, ffl. (AP) Now hat veteran Joe Kapp has jcrambled out-of-bounds in a contract squabble, 1970 Heis- man Trophy winner Jim Plun- ett could make a quick hop nto No. 1 quarterback status )r the New England Patriots. That strong possibility, how- ver, was viewed skeptically londay by Plunkett, pro foot- wll's No. 1 draft choice. "I don't know what difficulties Kapp is having with the Pa- riots, but even with him gone, I can't regard myself as No. 1 said the former Stanford passing wizard. He said "proving myself as a pro is still all ahead of me. It was less than 21 hours after Plunkett signed a mul'tiyear Pa- riot contract in Chicago that Kapp left the Patriot camp at Amherst, Mass., refusing to sign a standard National Foot- jail League player's contract. "I. don't even know why Kapp did it. It was totally unex- said Plunkett. "I thought he would be their o. 1 quarterback. I met. Joe jriefly on a visit to Boston. He said he'd be glad to help me when I moved lo Boston." In Amherst, general manager Upton Bell said Monday, refer- ring to Kapp: "The next move is up to him. We're here, and if he wants to come back, we'll welcome him. But life goes on." Kapp spent eight years iu the Canadian Football League with Calgary Stampeders and British Columbia Lions before signing with Minnesota Vikings of the National Football League in He led the Lions to a Grey Cup victory in and was CFL all-star quarterback in 1963 andlS64. SOME BRIGHT SPOTS But the picture isn't totally dark- Canada is sending a strong equestrian team to Call which, with the withdrawal of such teams as the United States and Mexico over fear of an outbreak of equine disease, must be rated a favorite. And there will be nobody at the Games who has spared over the high-jump bar higher than Debbie Brill, the back-bending teen-ager from Haney, B.C., who has done better than six feet. In swimming, steady Angela Coughlan has the ability to win gold in the freestyle events, especially since Debbie Meyer and other top U.S. women are passing up the Games to tram for a domestic meet. Nick Thierry, who coaches the University Settlement AquaUc Club in Toronto and who took the Canadian swimmers to the 1970 Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh, sees a decline in Ca- nadian swimming fortunes, coincident with an upsurge in ability on the part of competi- tors. "There are top American coaches working in Peru, Co- lombia, Venezuela and Mexico, so those teams should be very he says. Canada won three golds, 13 silvers and 11 bronzes in 1967 in swimming and Thierry believes "it will be virtually impossible The Lethbridge Native Sons end the Taber Ebony Hawks travelled to Edmonton for four Alberta Junior Lacrosse League games and both clubs came home empty handed over the weekend. Saturday the Sons were bounced 1G-2 by the Meadow- larks while the Hawks suffer- ed a 12-10 setback against the North Glenora Blues. The Native Sons were made up of seven regular juniors and seven juveniles and couldn't match the Meadowlarks ex- perience and fell easily to the wayside. Terry Tuk and Myron Cur- rie notched the lone Son's mar- kers. On the other hand, the Taber Hawks were short handed against the Blues, but kept up with the fast Edmonton club throughout the contest out shooting them 69-68. Dave Smith notched four goals while Ken Gregus and Ron Lowe chipped in with two apiece. Sunday the tired Hawks iced the Garneau Spartan and were dropped by the last place club 114, Ron Chmielewski managed to tally twice for the Hawks while Gregus and Smith added sin- gletons. The Native Sons faced the Edmonton Golden Jets and dropped a 10-2 decision. Myron Curfie potted In both the Son's goals. Meanwhile the Lethbridge Kinsmen Comets had an en- joyable weekend as they pick- ed up two victories in Calgary Saturday night the Comets trimmed the Calgary Acadia 6-5 with Francis DeCoste and Cliff Miyashiro leading the way with two goals each. Miyashiro was the individua star Sunday as he notched a goal with 30 seconds left to give the Comets a 4-3 victory over a mixed club. Bowness, Wildwood and Hill hurst combined forces, but fail ed to out-do the Lethbridge club- The Taber Hawks will seronzes. "Our best chances in the ;old-medal department come irom the girls, where Debbie Van Kiekebelt and Penny May Nave recorded more than points in the pentathlon." He feels they could come 1-2 in this event. "Brill is still the best girl high-jumper in the Americas and, if still on form, should win the gold. If not, Patty Wilson could take it all, unless Yvonne Saunders of Jamaica provides an upset. STILL AMONG BEST "Carol Marin in the discus will team with Joan Pavelich to provide at least one medal. Nancy McCredie, defending Pan-Am champion, is still among the best shot putters." He doesn't see Berto, Patti Loverock "or anyone else" beating Iris Davis in the 100. "In most of the men's events, however, it will be two United States competitors winning medals with Canadians, Jamai- cans, Cubans, Trinidadians and others from South America picking up those medals not won by the Mexican distance runners." The Canadian contingent about 450 when you count ath- letes, coaches and headquarters personnel, is the largest ever sent to an international event. Canada is traditionally strong n judo and marksmanship; her women's gymnasts could come hrough, as could a cyclist or wo. Sailing is an unknown quant- ty and as for rowing, well, this doesn't appear to be Canada's year- But you never can tell, there will probably be medals where .hey are least expected. with famous go-anywhere -4-Wheel Drive THE 2-CAR CAR TODAY UNITED MOTORS CO.

FACE RECORD HOLDER "Possibly our best prospects in the men's events are Bill Ma- hony and Mike Whltaker in the 100 and 200 breaststroke. But they're up against Brian Job, the U.S. world-record holder; Jose Fiolo, the defending champ from Brazil who has had two years of U.S. training, and Fe- lipe Munoz of. Mexico, the Olym- pic champion. "Byron MacDonald is good enough to win the 100 butterfly, but he's in against Ross Wales, bronze medalist in the 1966 Olympics, and Frank Heckl, the U.S. champ. 'We had a good medal chance with George Smith of Edmonton in the individual medley, but he was badly in- jured last month in a motor- cycle accident and without him, we'll be lucky to make the finals in the 200 and 400. "We should be contending for silver medals in the men's 400 medley, and the 400 and 800 freestyle. South American countries haven't enough depth to sweep all classes. It would be a disgrace if we didn't take the silver in all three of these events." Thierry advises not to "ex- pect too much" from Kalph Hutton, who Won the gold in the 200 metre backstroke in 1967 and took silvers in the 200-and 400- and metre free- style and as a member of the 40-metre freestyle relay team. "Hutton is about 25 pounds Thierry says. "He hasn't trained enough. At 23 we can't expect too much. At best, lie may be a help in the relay." As for the women, "Coughlan should he a solid gold favorite in the 100 and 200 freestyle."
