Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 10, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THI LETHBRIDGl HERAIB Friday, Novimbor 10, 197Z Rough Riders confident of win Will west semi-final be close? EDMONTON (Cl') It regu- lire hell you arc doing in a Jar-season cm-oiuiters are an in- racket like Gotta said dicator, there's a good possi bility that Sunday's Western football Conference, sudclen- ricalh semi-tinal at Clarke Sta- dium will he a controversial af- fair, decided in the final min- utes of play. Edmonton Eskimos and Sas katchewan Roughriders tangled three times during the 1572 campaign and in each case the margin of. victory was two points. The clashes were mar- red by rough play and question- able time-keeping. The Eskimos, who finished second in the V.'FC, won the first game 31-29, preserving the triumph by recovering a last- minute Saskatchewan fumble. But they lost quarterback Bruce Lemmerman, who suf- fered a shoulder separation when he was hit by Bill Baker, Saskatchewan's six-foot, four inch, 250-pound defensive end. To that point Lemmerman had won seven straight games, string that stretched back into the 1971 season when the Es- kimos finished in last place. The impact of Lemmerman's injury, the first oE many for the Eskimos, was reduced when his Wilkinson- responded with an outstanding performance that guided the Eskimos to a 1M finish, their best won-lost record since the 1961 season. Wilkinson's adept signal-call- ing was an unexpected bonus from a quarterback who had been bouncing around the Cana- dian Football League for sev- eral years and had been unable lo find permanent employment with Toronto Argonauts and British Columbia clubs that finished last in their respective conferences in 1972. Meanwhile coach Jack Gotta took time off Thursday Irom preparations for Satur- day's Eastern Football Confer- ence semi-final with Montreal Alouettes to mourn the firing of Torooto Argo coach Leo Cahill. "It makes you wonder what Officiating clinic set The Department of Culture, Youth and Recreation along with the Southern Alberta Re- creation Council will sponsor a basketball officials clinic Sat- urday. The joint affair will be staged at a.m. in room 30 at the Lethbridge Community College. The one-day session is open to anyone in southern Alberta who is interested in officiating. Registration fee is set at two dollars. PROFESSIONAL RUO UPHOLSTERY CLEANEM (Now under new management) Aik about our PRE-CHRISTMAS SPECIALI 24.hr.

"What more do they he asked. Gotta Jiimselt was on the hot seat last year. After finishing last in 1970, his Riders managed to slip into the EFC semi-finals. This year Riders won 11 of their 14 games and were it was simple Th-ee TORONTO (CP) wins and 11 losses. That, briefly, was the reason Toronto Argonaut owner John Bassett gave Thursday lor fir- ing Leo Cahill, bead coach of (he Argonauts of the Eastern Football Conference for the last five seasons. Cahill, whose Argos dropped from Grey Cup finalists last year to a disappointing last place this season in the EEC, was acclaimed by his peers in the Canadian Football League as Coach of the Year in 1971. But Cahill said Thursday he lost his job because Bassett felt "it would lie a happier situation If the Argos had a new head COECh." That was the only reason Cahill said after his dis- missal, which came during a 90- minute meeting with Bassett. "He said it was based on our 11 record. 7f that's all there is to it, he's 100-per-cent wrong." Basselt said that apart from closing The Telegram, a nen-5 paper he formerly owned and which ceased publication last year, firing CahJll was "the hardest job I had to do." MAY BE WRONG "Cahill is my kind of Bassett said. "I have a great deal of admiration and respect tor him. I don't know enough about football to evaluate his coaching ability and I was judg- ing him solely on his three wins and 11 losses this season. "I may be proved totally wrong in firing Leo. Tf I'm right, I'll look like a genius." CahilTs firing drew comment from at least one CFL coach. Jack Gotta of Ottawa Rough Riders, said: 'He was a hell of a coach a great competitor and he filled the ballparks. What more did they want? "It makes you wonder what the hell you are doing in a racket like this." Cahill, 44, must have been thinking the same thing. "It's like being in he said hours after his firing. "I knew I was gone last week but you find it hard to believe you will be fired. I still don't believe it. Maybe it will come to me Ln the middle of the night."

JT'S tile time of the year again when the hunt- ing season is heading down the home stretch and the wild water-fowl hunters are showing concern over lead poisoning in birds. The poisoning comes as a result of the intake of spent lead shot by the waterfowl, and not from the process, or infection that may be caused by pel- lets in the flesh of wounded birds. Last fall thousands of birds used the east- ern shoreline of Maryland on the east coast of the U.S. as a staging area. By February of this year the plants and rich seeds of the lush marshes had at- tracted geese and many thousands of ducks. Shortly afterwards there were at least 4.500 geese dead or dying along the shoreline. And, there were thousands of ducks dead or dying. Research showed tJie silent killer was lead sliot poisoning. All this had been going on for more than 100 years. As early as 1842, European scientists had point- ed out the vulnerabi ing. Long before wildl lines, therefore, the and established.

The problem: If the Vancouver-Garibaldi Olympic Committee obtains permission to hold the 1076 Winter Olympics will the federal government renege on its 1970 promise of financial aid for the event? And if Garibaldi does stage the Games and receives financial support mil Montreal Mayor Jean Drapcau finally roar Tor federal money to support the 1970 Summer Olympics? The federal cabinet already has stated lhat Montreal will not get financial assistance from the government. A spokesman fnr Sport Canada said in a telephone interview Thursday lhat in May, 1370, when Montreal and Garibaldi were bidding to- the Olympics, only the Vancouver based committee asked for money. "Garibaldi asked lor moral Hold it, Coloradans not through DENVER (AP) A district court judge has temporarily restrained the Denver Olympic Organizing Committee from formally notifying the International Olympic Committee that Coloradans have rejected the 1976 Winter Games. Judge Neil Horan issued the temporary order Thursday on a request of three individuals identified only as Churchill G. Blackwell, Don L. Hermansen and James G. Disney. The three maintained that Denver and Colorado voters voted Tuesday only on wheth-e.r further slate and city funds should be spent on the Olympics, not whether they should be held here. The order came just hours jefore the Denver committee was drafting a formal notice to :he IOC that Denver was giving up the 1976 event. Meanwhile, Lord Killanin. iresident of the International 31ympic Commillce, said from lis home in Dublin lhat cities ining up lo lake over (ho jflmcs from Denver may have lo wait at least four months for a decision, if Denver does make its withdrawal official. "Cables arc arriving all the ime from cilics wanting In be the Killanin said. "But I not expect any decision lo be mado unlil the IOC executive board meets at Lausanne next support and million bul Montreal only asked for moral he said. At the time, said the spokes man, Prime Minister Trudeau promised financial support to Garibaldi if they acquired the Winter Olympics. "If Garibaldi is reopening their position I think they will have to ask for the money he said. According to the Vancouver committee the position already has been reopened. Bob Hindmarch, acting president of the committee, said in Vancouver Tuesday following Ihc Colorado decision thai "we're dcfinilely interested in the 1S76 Games. "We already have in writing from the federal government the promise of financial assistance. The spokesman in Ottawa isn't so sure- 'We don't even know if the Garibaldi committee can reapply foe the Games there's some speculation that Denver Is not dead." The spokesman said Garibaldi may have changed its original presentation and If they had the government fi-nfiicial promise the presentation may not "necessarily" apply. But he did say: "If the consensus is the same maybe." Two cities in the U.S. also have jumped into the running Squaw Valloy, Calif., home of the IDfiO Winter Olympics and Lake Placid, N.Y., considered an alternate of the Denver site. But Carl DeTemple, president of the Denver Olympic Organizing Committee, says "the U.S. Is probably out of the running." A number of European nations also are expected to for the Games. The government spokesman thinks it "would he Idle speculation at this time" to worry whether or not Garibaldi gets the Games. "We just have lo wait and happens and then react lo the he said. Meanwhile in Kingston the 1976 Summer Olympics are no more than an egotrip for Montreal mayor Jean Drapeau and a propaganda festival, a symposium on the Games was told Thursday. Bruce Kidd, a former track star and more recently an unsuccessful New Democratic Party candidate, made the "ego trip" remark, saying that sporting considerations were not taken into account and that Mr. Drapeau had led a "one-man mission" lo attract the games. Abbic Hoffman, who participated in this year's Olympic Games at Munich, said the games have never been able to avoid a political conflict. Both speakers were Olympics '76 symposium it Queen's University. Kidd said the Games could be improved by the elimination of team sports, holding events in various cities with existing facilities to "spread out the cost" and holding tlie Games over a longer period of lime lo do away with the staging of two or three championship events simultaneously. Hoffman said many of events are military-oriented, such as pistol shooting, fencing and even running, which depicts a country's strength. She added that is was obvious the West Germans were trying to beat the East Germans in an atlempt lo prove "which system is superior" and Uiat the Games have become no more than point competition between ttw United Stales and Russia.
