Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 27, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueidoy, July J7, 1971 THE UTHBRIDGE HMAID 7 Roughriders meet former coach tonight Keys will go with quarterback Brothers VANCOUVER (CP) Quart- erback Paul Brothers, who has never heard the cheers of the crowd, starts his fourth straight year as No. 1 with British Col- umbia Lions tonight in their Western Football Conference opener against Saskatchewan Roughriders. And head coach Eagle Keys thinks Brothers, a favorite of the Boo Birds, is the man for the job. "I may be sticking my neck said Keys Monday night, "but I think Paul is a good quarterback and given tune he Eskimos" coach quietly confident SHARING THE WEAlTH-Peter Revson, winner of Sunday's Can-Am Challenge Cup race, douses the crowd with champagne after his victory. Revson averaged 128.58 miles per hour over the 199-mile race. Stamps drop four Surprise cuts made By THE CANADIAN PRESS Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Cal- gary Stempeders, two teams that won't open the 1971 Cana- dian Football League season until later in the week, weren't in any hurry Monday night to reach thsir 32-man rosters until near today's 3 p.m. deadline. The Ticats still were five im- ports and three homebrews above the limit Monday night while Calgary still had to seek waivers on one import and two Canadians before reaching the required 14 imports and 18 Ca- nadians. Defending Grey Cup cham- pion Montreal Alouettes reduced their roster to player strength last week while Toronto Argo- nauts followed suit during the weekend with the departure of offensive tackle Bob Hudspeth on waivers. HudspeUi, a six-foot-four 275- poundcr was picked up by the Ticats and now is fighting for a Spot at Hamilton with arother former Argo, Larry Watkins. The Stampeders Monday cut second-year veterans Gig Perez, cornerback; Leo Taylor, half- back; Uriel Johnson, split end and rookie guard Gary Venturo. All are imports. Coach Al Dorbw at Hamilton expects a tough assignment in selections of three key spots. Besides the Hudspeth-Watkins battle, he'll have to decide whether to keep All American Steve Worster or Frank Mc- Guigan at fullback and whether Paul Johnson can hold his de- fensive half position from Arme making dollar move NEW YORK (AP) Arnold Palmer's victory in the Westches-ter Classic Sunday shot him into the race for this year's top money winner on the professional golf tour, an achievement he hasn't accom- plished since 1963. Palmer, with three victories this year, has collected He jumped ahead of Gary Player into third place. Lee Trevino, who failed to make the cut at Westchcster, is first with and Jack Nicklaus, who tied for ninth and took home held on to sec- ond place with Player, who did not play in the tourna- ment, has won The same trio of Trevino, Nicklaus and Palmer were 1-2-3 in the exemption point stand- ings. Four locals compete at Edmonton Four members of the Leth- bridge Track and Field Club tamed in a strong showing in the Alberta junior and juvenile championships in Edmonton over the weekend. All four members took part in the juv- enile competitions. Fred Sommer led the way for the locals with a first in the discus with a throw of 41.92 metres. He followed up with a third in the shot put with a heave of 12.16 metres. Armen Gerstenbuhler earned two seconds, a third and a fifth.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers got down to the player limit when they let import split end Don Stanklin go. Shanklin, who ar- rived unannounced at the Bomber camp in July, was out- standing in pre-season games but bscame a victim of Winni- peg's success the CFL's open market. The newcomer couldn't beat out speedy Jim Thorpe whom the Bombers picked up on waiv- ers from Toronto. Coach Eagle Keys reduced British Columbia Lions to open- ing-game strength by cutting ill r e e Brian Ansley, running back Don Wamngton aid defensive half- back Paul im- port Irby Augustine. Ottawa Rough Riders had j> sacrifice last year's rookie placekicking sensation, 19-year- old Ivan MacMillan, along with Canadian centre Bob Padfield and four rookie imports. Saskatchewan culled its ranks with the departure of tackle Dave Denny while Edmonton Eskimos, who open the season tonight at Ottawa, made their last cuts Sunday, releasing rookie Canadian flanker Mel Smith. Most of the teams have in- jured players still eligible for the roster although they have been placed on the 30-day, or four-game, injury reserve fist to protect them from having to be waived through the league. back.1 Words of encouragement like that from Keys, who coached the best in the Lan- his tenure with Sas- katchewan, have to mean some- thing. "Paul's an extremely intelli- gent person, but in the past, when he was trapped, he was taking steps he didn't have to. "We had to get him to pick an open spot quickly and run for it. I've seen Ron Lancaster fall into the same trouble when I coached him." A bruised shoulder arid ten- donitis in the biceps of his hrowing arm put the Lions' other signal-caller, Tom Wilkin- son, on the sidelines and Keys said "he will more than likely go on the injured reserve list." HAS PROBLEMS While Keys is happy with his quarterbacking situation, he's understandably nervous about tiis defensive line. :'That Lancaster can make an inexperienced defence like ours look really bad and that's whal we're scared he said. 'And as far as their defence goes, nobody is really sure ol what they will do." Meanwhile, Saskatchewan head coach Dave is anx- ious to start the season off righi with a win over the club which fired him in 1967. "If we win, it will be a partic- ularly good he said. "I still object to being fired in Vancouver.1 Skrien led the Lions to the Grey Cup in 1964. Three years later, the club was a shambles and he was out of work. He inherited a virtually pa1 club from Keys in Regina, but Skrien says the Roughriders ha- ven't yet lived up to their ad- vance billing. Fullback George Reed "just isn't the same man right still coming around after win- ter knee operation. Split end Silas McKinnie missed the last two exhibition games and Skrien says he is "still a question-mark starter.' He's also missing the services of Ed McQuarters, the dynamic Vigen leading Clieyenne event CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) Ralah Vigen, a chuckwagon racer from Dawson Creek, B.C has jumped into the early leac after too nights of chuckwagon racing at Cheyenne Frontier Days.

Keys cut three Canadians and one import Monday to bring his roster down to the 32-man limit. The Canadians were line- backer Brian Ansley and run- ning back Don Warringtoii, both from S'imon Fraser University, and defensive halfback Paul Hendershot from Waterloo Lu- theran Univtrsity in Waterloo. Irby Augustine, who played last year for Hamilton Tiger- Cats of the Eastern Conference, was also cut, beaten out at left linebacker by Henry Sorrell. Keys said Gerry Herron will also go on the injured reserve list and will "probably need an operation on his knee." His spot at right defensive halfback will be taken by Wayne Holm. Jauch worried about twosome OTTAWA (CP) Only two Jungs are really bothering coach Ray Jauch of Edmonton King and Henry Hubert. With the Eskimos heading into their first game of the Ca- nadian Football League season tonight against Ottawa Rough Riders at 5 p.m. MST King and Hubert are the only injured players on the 32-man Edmon- ton roster. "If we had King and Hubert healthy, we would hope to be in a position to give every team we meet a hard time." There is nothing cocky about the quiet former star with Win- nipeg Blue Bombers and he in no way was trying to belittle the Rough Riders. He is simply con- fident that the rebuilding job started two years ago by Ed- monton is on the verge of pay- ing off. "The Rough Riders have to be better than their record in the East last he told a news conference Monday night. "They've had to shuffle some because of key retirements, but I think Jack (coach Jack Gotta) has done a helluva job of re- cruiting." FINISHED LAST Last season the Riders fin- ished a hesitant last in the East- ern Conference while the Eski- mos were a strong second in the West. Having seen them only in a rain- and mud-spattered 5-1 Es- kimo exhibition loss in Edmon- ton, Jauch sees the Ottawa de- fensive backfield as the only place he isn't sure they have improved from last year. With Don Trull and Rusty Holberton trophy won by Vic Meech Vic Meech, of Lethbridge, won the Bill Holberton memor- ial trophy Sunday in the sen ior men's golf tournament and not the Hogan trophy as was reported in Monday's paper. The Holberton trophy, along with the Nome Macleod mem- orial trophy, the Jim Freel and Tom MeCready trophies are an- nually put up for competition for southern Alberta senior golfers. :iark as Edmonton quarter- racks he says: "We're going to run better- not more but better. We have more experience than last year. But basically, you can look for us to pass." Ottawa quarterbacks Gary Wood and Rick Cassata move around more in the backfield than do the Edmonton signal- callers, but the Riders also can be expected to pass a lot. The bulk of their running game will be carried by Dennis Duncan, last year with Montreal Alouettes, sometime corner line- backer Wayne Giardino and rookie Skip Eaman. But with Wood at the reins, he has a fine selection of receivers in Hugh Oldham and Dave Pivec at ends and Bill Cooper at flanker. Jauch's confidence mainly stems from the maturity of his team. "George McGowan (a flanker from Kansas) is the only player on our roster without CFL expe- he said. ACHIEVE AIM "And this is something we've been striving get people with experience.

Michael Sheen also poked out three singles for Lakeside while Pat McCunne spoiled Pocza's chances for a no-hitter with a single.
