Montina took home the John Rae Memorial trophy for winning the scoring cham- pionship this season, while Odney was selected Rookie of the Year and Jablonkay won the Lineman of the Year award. The Bombers were presented with the Glendale Bowl Trophy and the Eleanor Whitelaw Memorial trophy for going undefeated en route to the league championship.

"The Lions have improved a said Payne during last- moment preparations for the Sunday game, to be televised nationally by CTV. "But, over-all, we've improved, too." The Roughriders defeated B.C. in all three of their meet- ings this season, but two of the three could have gone either way. The same clubs met in the semi-final last season when ANDY CAPP the WFC went to sudden-death for the first time, and B.C. took a 33-13 whipping. Almost overlooked in the pre-game speculation is the fact that the Roughriders are healthier than at almost any time this season. All their starters are fit, with the possi- ble exception of defensive tackle Tim Roth. Payne said Roth's injured ribs are improving rapidly and he's certain to play unless something unforeseen happens. The two-week layoff since Saskatchewan battered the Eastern Conference champion Montreal Alouettes 17-2 to clinch second spot also has helped the Riders. They're fresher than they've been on the eve of a playoff for many seasons. If that isn't enough, say Rider supporters, look to Lan- caster and fullback George Reed to make the difference. Both are nearing retirement age. AREN'T NOLI OUT FOR A (DRINK, PET? IN THIS WHEN FLO SlTS WATCHIN1 TELL-f A 'ER. HAIR BLOWS "T FACE-.'

"They tried to squeeze him out before I raised a hell of a holler." Ballard said in an in- terview with Globe and Mail columnist Dick Beddoes. Ballard said the move was led by Ed Snider, chairman of Philadelphia Flyers. "If Ed Snider's play had worked, Campbell would have been replaced by Sam Pollock." Pollock is vice president and general manager of Montreal Canadiens. "The plot to make Pollock president was instigated by Snider, maybe with the help of Bill Jennings of New York Rangers. When I found out about it, I got furious. "I got hold of Bruce Norris of Detroit and Bill Wirtz of Chicago and we mounted enough opposition to keep Campbell in office." Ballard said that other moves by Snider were also blocked. ''Snider wanted to be chair- man of the governors, but we prevailed upon Wirtz to take another term. Then Snider wanted to be secretary of the governors but we made sure that went to Walter Bush of Minnesota North Stars." In Montreal, Campbell was hesitant to comment on the report. "I don't want to become in- volved in it at the NHL president said.

Campbell said that "basically parts of the story are the wrong way round." He would not elaborate However, it has been known for some time that relations between the league president and the Snider-Jennings com- bination suffered seme strain when the two team presidents were part of an NHL group that met in secret with owners of the rival World Hockey Association in an abortive attempt to obtain a merger of the two leagues. The meeting was held without the knowledge of the full NHL board of governors and failed to resolve the massive litigation that existed between the two leagues at the time.
