By THE CANADIAN PRESS Several prominent names were among Canadian Football League cuts announced Friday as teams went about the busi- ness of paring their rosters to reach the CFL player limit by Tuesday's 3 p.m. deadline, Montreal Alouettes of the Eastern Football Comerence, defending Grey Cup champs, were first to reach the pre- scribed roster of 14 imports and 18 Canadians when they placed nine players on waivers, three from last year's championship Toronto Argonauts of the EFC got down to just one over the import quota as coach Leo Cah- ill placed 10 players on waivers, including three Canadians. All nine teams will see action next week with the season openers Tuesday at Ottawa where the Rough Riders enter- tain Edmonton Eskimos in an interlocking game and Saskat- chewan Roughriders visi. Brit- ish Columbia Lions in a Western Conference battle. Scrambler Tony Passander was among the Als returnees getting the axe, losing his jackup quarterback job to young Jim Chasey. Montreal also got rid of defensive half- back Joe Hernandez and line- backer Chuck Kyle, both vet- eran imports acquired in off- season trades from Western Conference clubs- Veteran Canadian John ura- ture was among the three Cana- dians put on waivers. Import flanker Tommy Bland and homebrew defensive tackle Walt Balasiuk were surprise Argo cuts but Cahill is having problems deriding on his final import cut. PROFIT SUGGESTED Conjecture around the Argo camp is that it will be either tight end Mel Profit or offensive tackle Bob Hudspeth, both strongholds on Toronto teams or several seasons. Quarterback Tom Wilkinson, who was expected to bolster the B C club, may have played himself off the raster by bruis- ing his shoulder in last Mon- day's exhibition win over Ot- tawa. Coach Eagle Keys, with 22 Canadians and 16 imports still in camp, has until 8 p.m. PDT Monday, 24 hours before the Lions' opener, to declare his starting roster. Conjecture around the B.C. camp is that if Wilkinson is not ready to start Tuesday, the for- mer Argo will go one of two ways-on the 30-day injury re- served list or on waivers. Calgary Stampeders added to then- Canadian problems by ac- quiring linebacker Cliff Shaw nd wide receiver Al Rankin, icth released earlier in the day y Saskatchewan. The Stampeders, already two ver their Canadian limit, now aust cut four homebrews and ve imports before Tuesday's eadline. With the departure of Sliaw, Rankin and quarterback Gary Eoughrider coach Dave krien still has 19 Canadians and 18 imports in camp. >ET AT FULL BACK Edmonton coach Ray Jauch ettled the fullback question for he Eskimos by cutting Jim Jankins, former Ottawa player, md thereby settling on Bob Hoss) Houmard with Alan Pit- caithley as his running mate. Jauch still has to cut mmebrew and an import before he club leaves Sunday for its ,wo-gamc eastern swing. Winnipeg has 38 players-17 mporls and 21 n camp and general manager Earl Lunsford is in no hurry to announce final cuts before the deadline. Among the latest to leave via waivers were wide receiver Bob McCarthy, former Calgary and Montreal star, and linebacker John Vilunas, dropper earlier in the year by Hamilton Tiger- Cats. Scott Henderson, last year an all-America linebacker at Texas, lost cut in his bid for a spot in the Ticat defensive unit to Pole Wysocki. Henderson was one of seven players, including six imporU, that coach Al Dorow put on waivers- But he still has his work cut out deciding who to hold on to from the 38 still available. Three imports and three Canadians must go. SIX OVER Ob'-awa is still six over the limit with 20 Canadians and 18 Imports. Coach Jack dotla, in imports. Coach Jack Gotta, in no hurry to make any fast deci- sions, is not expected to release any more until Monday.
