He said in an interview at the Stampeder training camp: "It's just a matter of juggling around. We have the nucleus of a good club, but the liardest thing to say is what kind of club we're gonna have. I mean we're gonna have a good football club one way or another, but I don't laiow if we'll be a passing or running team. "I know it's a bit odd that I say we're gonna have a good football club with as many ques- tion marks as we have, but I know we've enough good people to play somewhere or other." It's a safe bet that Calgary will be throwing the ball more this year than last. Jerry Keel- ing is a superb passer "either from a drop back or on a roll- out." He's also a master of passing off a bootleg and the Stampeders have a talented group of receivers. Herm Harrison, a light end, led the WFC in passes caught with 48 and yards gained with last year. Flanker Gerry Shaw was third, halfback Rudy was ninth and Dave Cranmer, another halfback, Is a good receiver. UNSURE OF CRANMER Cranmer, however, looms, as one of the big question marks 'or 1970. Injured in the early iart of the season, he under- went chest surgery and is physi- cally fit to play.

ARK MAY HELP The acquisition of Basil Bark i the Evanshen trade is ex- ected to bolster the line since ark is an all-star centre. Defensively, the Stampeders strong although Don Luzzi as retired after he missed a ood part of last year through ijuries. Bad news for opposition ball arriers is that Wayne Harris ill be back in his middle line- acker spot flanked by Joe For- ani and Jim Furlong. Taking an over-all look at f70, Duncan said: "To finish first in the league e've got to come up with mieone who can take Woods' ace. There isn't any basic roblem with us. Last year we ad so many injuries we only ut the same team on ffie field wo games hi a row all season, ut that's part of the game.
