It's all like a bad dream when I look back now." Stewart said Sawchuk kept coming after him during the lawn altercation. SAYS HE TRIPPED "I backed away and tripped over a metal barbecue pit.

Castellano. declaring Stewart would co-operate fully with the grand jury, said Uic Sawchuk's death was "purely and simply an accident." Castellano, asked why Stew- art had returned to Canada on May 1, only two days after Saw- chuk was taken to hospital, re- plied that a member of Stew- art's family had been taken ill. "Stewart saw Sawchuk and told him he had to go home but he'd be said Castellano. "A few days later Stewart re- turned and visited Sawchuk in the hospital again." Calm said he expects to call seven witnesses, but did not list them. They are expected, how- ever, to include Miss Sasso, de- scribed as a Canadian-born di- vorcee and friend of Stewart's who was at the house April 29; Ben Weincr, a restaurant opera- tor who has said he intervened between Sawchuk and Stewart during their altercation; Ranger coach Emile Francis; Dr. Denis Nicholson, who was summoned when Sawchuk collapsed, and detective Matthew Bonora, who investigated. EXPECTS FAST DECISION Cahn said he believed Ihe grand jury would be able to de- cide by Monday night whether to return an indictment. In the account in The Post, Stewart said he and had argued about rental money and cleaning up the house be- fore turning it back to the owner. Stewart said that only after Sawchuk had gone to hospital did he learn about some of the things that had been "bugging" his team-mate. "I can't tell you how sorry I am that I didn't turn away. The guy had real problems. When I think of it I'm ready to go out of my mind." Stewart said Sawchuk had just returned here from Detroit, where he had visited his 73- year-old father, critically in- jured in a car crash. He had also tried unsuccessfully to reach a reconciliation with his former wife, the mother of has seven children, from whom he was divorced last year.

BANFF, Alta. (CP) The] Canadian Intercollegiate Ath- letic Union was told Wednesday to co-operate in a proposed fed- eral government aithletic schol- arship program cm which the CIAU was not consulted. Leu LeFaive, director of the federal fitness and amateur sports program, told the CIAU annual meeting about the pro- posed plan. "It is lime we attacked (lie problems of sport in a co-ordi- naied, co-operative Le- Faive told the meeting. At the same time, he said uni- versity athletic personnel were not consulted in the planning of the aLhletic scholarships and "for this 1 make r.o apology." "We bcked on it as a matter between (is athletes as poten- tial recipient, the federal gov- ernment as the and the sports governing bodies con- cerned, who have considerable say on eligible athletes. CALLED INSIGNIFICANT "As far as we are concerned, the intercollegiate athletic pro- gram has ro real significance in this particular matter." LeFaiva said a committee of eight to 10 persons including representatives of the Canadian Olympic Association, the CIAU and the federal government would be named to an athletic scholarships selection commit- tee. "Initial plans call for 45 grants to be presented every year with each athlete receiving awards from to he said in an interview.

The CIAU, realizing govern- ment scholarships would be im- plemented, passed a motion Tuesday commending Health Minister John for his re- cent statement of policy con- cerning scholarships ad grants-in-aid to outstanding Ca- nadian athletes. BACK GUIDELINES They supported the initial guidelines of the as- sistance will not be tied to per- formance, that competition will D3t take precedence over duca- tion and that there will be com- plete freedom of choice of school by athletes. L F a i v e said Mr. Munro "raised a real hornets' nest" in his mention of grants-in-aid to Canadian athletes. "The immediate assumption seenif to have been here we go again on a government-spon- sored program of athletic schol- arships." Elaborating on the scholar- ships, said "these are not athletic scholarships as we know them." "We shall not be subsidizing any athlete simply to play for a particular college or univer- sity." He said the fitness program Is concerned with athletes who i cause of their long training and represent Canada in interna- competitive schedules have lil- tle opportunity to raise needed funds for e d u c a t i o n a 1 pur- ticnal competition.
