Lancaster, "tennis elbow" was in a cast for four days last week, showed little sign of trouble as he connected the three quarters he quarter- backed the defending western conference champions. Included were scoring tosses of 32 and five yards to Mc- Kinnie, who added a third on a 37-yard burst over tackle in the first quarter. The Lions, displaying woeful tackling that left coach Jackie Parker fuming in the dressing room, were never in the contest. Saskatchewan, coached by Par ker's old teammate Eagle Keys, led 21-0 after the first quarter and 35-3 at the half. Other 'Rider touchdowns were scored by swift Bobby Thomp- son, who started the slaughter with a 26-yard dash around left end in the sixth minute, Steve Molnar on a two-yard plunge in the first, and rookie quarter- back Don Weiss, who ended it on a five-yard keeper in the dying minutes.

In his first season with the Bombers, Spavital, 43, said Win- nipeg will advance to the West- ern Football Conference play- offs for the first time since 1966 "barring injuries to key person- nel."

Although the Bombers own an over-all record of 79 wins and 53 defeats against the Sfcampeders, they last beat Calgary in Mc- Mahon Stadium during the 1965 playoffs when Winnipeg quali- fied for the Grey Cup final against Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Eastern Football Confer- ence. "We haven't got the greatest athletes in the Canadian Foot- ball said Spavital in an interview. "In fact, most of our players aren't even wanted by a lot of other clubs.

The Bombers have improved Mr secondary defence "and over-all said Spav- ital, a graduate Of Oklahoma State University, and formerly of the WFC Saskatchewan Roughriders. He said the tough training camp at Gimli, Man., helped the younger players to mature "and give them the pride they need in the CFL." The Bombers, who will start Wally Gabler at quarterback with Ron Johnson from Okla- homa State as backup, will look for more interceptions this year. In 1969, Winnipeg only made 21 interceptions, the lowest in the WFC. "We're counting on more than 30 this season, or two a game from our deep backs. We're def- initely improved hi that posi- tion." Meanwhile, the Stampeders who went undefeated1 in four pre-season games will be with- place-kicker and safety Larry Robinson, the team's top scorer last year with 95 points.

F i n 1 e y 's suggestion that raseball needs colored bases didn't get very much attention at Tuesday's, major league meetings. It was one of the items that :he baseball owners didn't even discuss, as the baseball czars shelved several matters atid re- ferred others to study. Finley, the owner of Oakland A's of the American League, said baseball needs a blue bag at first, a red bag at second and io on. Why? No special reason. :t is just that Charlie 0. likes to teep tilings moving. The first day of the two-day sessions was quite uneventful >ut Chuck Feeney, president of he National League, Joe Cronin, president of the Ameri- can League, and Commisioner 3owie Kuhn promised some in- eresiing news after today's oint session. Among subjects discussed 'uesday was a proposal by lontreal Expos of the National jeague that Canadian amateur Baseball be put on an equal ooting with that of the United tales in terms of grants from 10 major leagues. At present, only U.S. amateur a s e b a 11 benefits from the major leagues' financial pro- ram. Kuhn said discussion of Montreal proposal vras fa- orable. Kuhn said the joint session eard from committees in- oled with baseball, but that ras about all. Two other subjects which did not get discussed were a pro- osed ceiling of 25 on tree [eats drafted each June and nermission to trade future draft cussion of the all-star selection results. This year, fans were al- lowed to pick the all-stars by ballots distributed across Can- ada and the United States. "I anticipate the same method next said Kuhn. "We'd like to see the nomina- tions and printing done at a later date so that no one who should be considered is left of! the ballot."
