But the two men have agreed lo meet again today to discuss the hockey future of the hard- rock left winger. The former policeman of the Canadiens met for three hours with Pollock at the Forum. Pollock wants Ferguson lo play for last year's but Ferguson won't end his retire- ment for that, it was reported. Ferguson was on the second year of a two-year deal when he announced his retirement five weeks ago to enter the knitwear business. It was estimated he was earning more than a season. Ferguson said lie -ivould meet with his business son Stall and George to "talk this thing over again." WANTS DECISION "I'd like to make a decision on this thing he said.

New suit Hied SEATTLE (AP) A new anti-trust suit against the Amer- ican League for the transfer of Seattle Pilots to Milwaukee was filed in Superior Court Thursday minutes after an earlier suit seeking million was dis- missed. The City of Seattle and the state, which asked the dis- missal, were joined by King County in the new action. The amount of damages alleged under liie new suit will be filed later. Two new defendants were added in the new suit and one deleted. Named with the Ameri- can League and its 12 member clubs as defendants were Sport- service Corp. and its subsidiary, Washington Sportservice, Inc., concessionaires. Removed as defendants in the lawsuit were Pacific Northwest Sports, Inc., the company which owned the Pilots, and the com- pany's owners, TOlliant Daley o! Cleveland and Max and Dewey Soriano of Seattle. By Nlt'K KEItntS CaiiiulUm Press Staff Writer Probably the biggest break Ernie Wakely got was in the summer of 1369 when St. Louis Blues decided they no longer re- quired the services of Bob Sclmiaulz and Norm Bcaudin and Montreal Canadiens did. Tlie Canadiens traded Wakely fo St. Louis for the two Blues, and thereby ended a 19-year ap- prenticeship in minor profes- sional ranks for the 29-year-old native of Flin Flon, Man. Since joining the National Hockey League Blues, Wakely has proved lhat he belongs in lhe league. In the only two NHL games lie played for the Canadians, Wakely allowed seven goals. With the Blues, however, the former leading goaltender in the old Eastern Pro League and Central Pro League has been a game-saver. His goals-agtunst average in 30 games with the Blues was only 2.04 last season when he No. 3 man behind veterans Glenn Hall and Jacques Planle. THEY'RE STINGY And until Thursday nighl, he and Hall had allowed only 21 goals to be scored against the Blues in 12 garr-es for a com- bined average of 1.75. Wakely let in 13 of those goals in seven games and shared a shutout with Hall in another for a personal average of 1.85, not the best in the league but among the leaders. Wakely allowed one of 26 shots to get by him Thursc night as lhe Blues edged Detroit Red Wings 2-1 in the league's only game at St. Louis, Tim Ecclestone beat Delroit goalie Roy Edwards with his second goal ol the year in the secoml period, providing what proved lo be the winner. Gary Sabourin's sixth in the first period gave St. Louis a 1-0 lead. Alex Delvecchio was the only Red Wing lo beat Wakely, scoring his seventh midway through the final period. The Blues' defence has al- lowed only two goals in the last 245 minutes of play. The Blues have won all six games at St. Louis this season, selling a club record for the most consecutive regular-season home wins in a year. Tte Blues won five straight at home in one stretch. CHASE HAWKS The win also gave the Blues a 7-2-J record and 18 points, two beliind the West Division lead- ers, Chicago Black Hawks, and two ahead of third-place Phila- delphia Flyers. Detroit remained in fifth place in lhe East, four back of Vancouve- Canucks. Exhibition postponed Due to a change in the sched- ule of the Western Canada Hockey League a game be- tween Calgary Centennials and Estevan Bruins has been post- poned to a later date. The game, one in a series of exhibition planned for the Taber Civic Centre, was to have been played Saturday evening. The next scheduled game has Calgary meeting Flin Fion Bombers Saturday November 21 at Taber at nine.

Louis S I Attendance pOSSIELY it's news lo those who arrived somewhat late, but I'm not divulging any secrets to those who paid atten- tion when I slate, very boldly, indeed, that not much has really changed in the Western Football Conference in the last 12 months. Here we are on the verge ot declaring the Western stan- dard-bearer in all Ihat fuss and furore known as the Grey Cup final, and it's still lhe same old story Saskatchewan Houghriders and Calgary Slampeders unloading their might and muscles for the right to make the journey to Toronto later this month. As 1 say, nothing much has changed. Like last year, the Koughies are favoi'ed to grab the spoils because, in most quar- ters, they are considered the best-balanced club in the country. The Stampeders, like last year, have been plagued by in- consistency, but they still must be recognized as a team that rosa to the occasion and won the games this season that they really had to win. They flattened B.C. Lions when their playoff plaits were in jeopardy, anil they beat out Edmonton last Sunday in the one-game semi-final to earn another shot at de- throning Eagle Keys and his Jolly Green Giants. The smart money, naturally, is riding on Saskatchewan. Thsy cake-walked to a first place finish with a record of 14-2. They boast probably the best quarterback in Canadian football in Eon Lancaster. Their defence gave up fewer points than any team in the WFC, their offensive line is considered the best in the business and their over-all balance is the envy of every team in the Canadian Football League. That, among other things, is why they have once again been installed1 favorites lo dispose of Us hot-and-cold Stamped- ers. When you look at their credentials, there is BO other way. Ik- Keys, however, is a cagey cuss. He's already gone on rec- ord as labelling the Stampeder defence the best, the very best, and he says they are a much more formidable team thari their 9-7 record indicates, remembering, of course, that of the two defeats his troops suffered this year one was a 30-0 shellacking administered one warm evening in August by the everything- Cowboys. And maybe he's not stretching the truth when he says the best-of-three series will be a survival of the fittest. 1 netc, with interest, that Calgary's great linebacker Wayne Harris lias figured out how the Roughriders can be forced to evacuate the throne room, "To beat says Harris, "we have to contain their rushing attack and keep Lancaster tinder control." If Harris and company could accomplish those two items, the Stampeders would undoubtedly spring the biggest surprise of the year. If, that is. A Stampeder victory, of course, is not out of the question. It seems to me that almost anything is possible in the whacky, unpredictable world of professional football. However, I wouldn't bold my breath awaiting the final outcome. In a nutshell, for the Slampeders to prevail over the lough, talented defending champions, their defence will have to con- tinue to come on h'ke gangbuslers, the offence will have to lend a much stronger hand than was the case in Edmonton last Sunday and they'll have to entirely eliminate those annoy- ing mistakes that cost them more than one game they should have won this past semester. In other words, if they are to stage an upset, they'll have to put it all together, neat and sweet, in two games, not one. So, where does that leave us? In a nutshell, I don't think the Stampeders hare the equipment to beat the Roughriders in a best-of-three series. Possibly one game, but not two. The call here is Saskatchewan in two straight, but only after a real dog fight with Jim Duncan's crew. In the east, the nod goes to Hamilton Ticats and their experience over Montreal Alouettes. Come to think of it, though, it would be a tremendous shot in the arm if the Stamps and Alouetles made the grade. They haven't tangled in tile national final since 1949 when Frank Filchock led the Larks past Keith Spaeth afld the gladiators from the city the stampede made famous, Now, that would be sometliing, wouldn't it? Mrs. Hull wants divorce CHICAGO (AP) Joanne Hull, wife of Chicago hockey star Bobby Hull, filed for di- vorce in Cook county Circuit Dourt Thursday on grounds ot "physical She asked for custody of Ihcir iive children and an "equitable" share of Hull's annual income, estimated at Lawyer Bernard Rinella said Mrs. Hull also asked for the family home in suburban Addi- son, alimony, child support payments and a share of Hull's assets.

Sitting with Dempsey is general manager Vic Schwenk Won't sign new contract Frank Selke through? SAN FRANCISCO CAP) The Chronicle says general nanagcr Frank Selke has sub- mitted his resignation In Cali- fornia Seals of the' National Hockey League. The paper says that the latest owner of the Seals, Charles 0. Finiey, reported ill a telephone interview that he offered Selke a new contract but the general manager refused to sign it. According to The Chronicle, Finiey also said he has offered new contracts to coach Fred Glover and Bill Torrey, execu- tive wee-president, but they have yet to sign.
