Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Chuck Ealey disturbed at black quarterback image he has acquired W.dn.Kfay, November IS, 1972 THE UTHMIDCE HEMLD I just want to be known as a successful quarterback' HAMILTON (CP) "People ask me how it feels to sue cessful black Bays Chuck Ealey. "I never know how Lo answer them. I'd much rather they ask me how it feels to be a success ful quarterback." Ealey, 6-foot-l and 195 pounds, came scrambling out o the University of Toledo this season, took the first-string quarterback job away from journeyman veteran Wally Gab- ler and led Hamilton Tiger-Cats to the Eastern Football Confer' ence title. "He's says Marv Luster, defensive leader for To- ronto Argonauts. "He's the best I've seen during my 12 years up here." Garaey Henley, two-way vet eran and captain of the Ticats, says: "He stands with the very few who managed to take over righi out of college. Joe Namath an< Joe Theismann were among those who did." QUIETLY CONFIDENT The 22-year-old from Ports- mouth, Ohio, comes off almost too good to be true in the eval- uation of team-mates, friends and even opponents. But he's quiet about his own accom- plishments. "I don't open up and tell people I've just met about my- self even though I think I can talk to anyone. One of the tilings I was aiming for, I can talk about it I've done it now, was to try to become a starting quarterback with this team." The next time he starts will be this Saturday, against Ot- tawa Rough Eiders in tire first game of the two-game, total point series for the Eastern Conference playoff title. Second game of the final is Nov. 26. Winner of the series meets the Western Conference survivor here in the Grey Cup game Dec. 3. Last winter, Ealey said he was "a little disgusted and dis- appointed" at being passed over in the National Football League draft. He had been a main cog in Toledo's 35-game winning streak that Irad stretched over three years. "I think my stating that 1 would only play quarterback could have resulted in me get- ting drafted a little later, M not in them bypassing me com- pletely." INFREQUENT LOSER Ealey hadn't lost a footMl game since Grade 9, but he lort in his first appearance with Hamilton on Aug. 8, 1972, when British Columbia Lions of the Western Conference won 19-17. In that game, Ealey went in at halftime, replacing Gabler. He moved the team and despite the fact that they lost, coach Jerry Williams said, "He's go- ing to be a good one." Ealey was at Uie helm all the way three days later when the W F C Edmonton Eskimos triumphed in the last three min- utes. 30-27. He passed for three touchdowns and ran for an- other. Defeat again, Aug. 19 at home to Montreal Alouettcs, who won it 25-23 in the last minute. Ea- ley had completed 16 of 24 passes for 338 yards in a losing cause. FORTUNE CHANGES At that had won the opener against Sas- katchewan ilton was 1-3. Ealey led them to 30 consecutive victories the rest of the way for a season record of 11-.1. Ealey is not the first black quarterback to make it in Can- ada. Sandy Stephens came out of the University of Minnesota in the early 60's i.nd was success- ful with Alouettes and Argo- nauto .before a car ecciden! ended hii career. In the late 1960s, Carroll Wil- liams, a frail, running quarter- back, from Xavler University in Cincinnati, played for three years with Montreal and B.C. Twenty years ago, Bemie Custis from Syracuse Univer- sity proved he was a good one playing quarterback and half- back with Hamilton. There were one or two others of lesser Hollis from the University of Iowa who tried out with Edmon- ton 10 or 15 years ago; John Henry Jackson who played briefly with the Argos in the mid-1960's before going down to the Continental League. Jim Stillwagon, outstanding lineman from Ohio State now with Toronto Argonauts, says of Ealey: "He's more calm than he was at the start of the season. He knows where he's going." Al Brenner, defensive back who joined Hamilton from Michigan State and New York Giants, has been a pro for four years. This season he inter- cepted 15 passes, t CFL record. "I could intercept passes off a Joe TheLsmann every Brenner says. "But in practice, Ealey makes me look stupid. Every time I try to guess against him, I'm wrong." MABYE SANTA HAS THE ANSWER Chuck Eoley of the Hamlllon Tiger-Cols would like to know why everyone asks him how it ii to be the only black quarterback in the Canadian Football teague. Santa won't have Ihe answer to that queilion. (CP Wirepholo) Ryun, Seagren, Evans, Matson sign Track stars turn pro NEW YORK CAP) Ama- teur stars Jim Ryun, Bob Sea- ;ren, Lee Evans and Randy Uatson turned professional Tuesday as the nucleus of a track and field circuit that ilans 48 meets next year in the Jnited States, Canada and Eu- rope. Richmond Flowers of the Na- ional Football League's New York Giants, a former hurdles star at the University of Ten- lessec, also signed a contract, was announced by the new International Track Association at a news conference. "We plan 24 to 30 events in Corth said Michael VHara, president of the new nternational Track Association, 'and about 15 more in Europe. The ITA format calls for up o 48 meets with basic purses of each. There are to be wo meets a week, one each on laturday and Sunday, in cities that are close to one anotlicr. "We will sign five athletes for ach of 12 championship vents." O'Hara said. "At each Kiwanis sponsor shooting classes meet, the winner of an evenl will receive with ?250 for second, for third and ?50 for fourth." Ryun said It had been proj- ected to him that "a good year The l-elhbridpe Circen Acres Kiwanis Club will once again sponsor a gun-safety program for 22 calibre rifles.

MIDGET ELKS VS CROWSNEST PASS CASCADES Arfuln Sludintl CHILDREN Trevmo slapped with fine NBW YORK (AP) Golfer Lee Trevino was slapped with an fine Tuesday for walk- ing out of the Sahara invitation tournament last month and crit- icizing officials. Joseph C. Dey, Jr., commis- sioner of the Professional Golf- ers' Association Tournament Playo-s Division, announcing the fine, said punishment of the popular former United States open champioj and reigning British Open king was softened hocause of Trcvinn's attitude. "The extent of the penalty for tills major violation of tourna- ment regulations was influenced only by the fact lhat Mr. Trevmo was the defending champion but, in mitigation, by his prompt and unqualified anology to tournament offi- cials." Dey said in his formal release. Trevino picked up his ball and walked off Ihe course after playing nine holes of the third round in Ihe Saha-a tournament at Las Vegas Orl. He first complained that he was weary from loo much tournament play but later took a blast at the slow play of the tournament. Afterward, Trcvino apologized and publicly announced that he felt he was wrong and was de- serving of some sort of punish- inenl. ANDY CAPr could be worth and up at the beginning. That might not seem huge, but it is when you've been earning zero." The former Kansas Univer- sily world record holder '.n the mile said he foresees, "possible great financial benefits, as long as your name is hot in the news, in such areas as endorse- ments and commercials." O'Hara said that Flowers, who makes an estimated yearly in Ihe National Football Leapie, "coniactetl us about running since track was his first sports love." The ITA president said he was, however, "treading cau- tiously in talking deals with pro football players. We want lo play ball with the clubs and the NFL. "But, for sure, we are inter- ested in such people as Bob Hayes, Paul Warfield, Mercury Morris, Earl McCullouch and Jimmy Hines, who were brack heroes as well as good football players." O'Hara released a partial 1973 schedule which included Albu- querque, N.M.. March 23: IXKS Angeles. March 2-1. Fort Wo-Ih, Tex.. April 6; Baltimore. April 14; Chicago.

New bids accepted before Jan. 15 It's now official Denver out LAUSANNE, Switzerland (AP) National Olympic com- mittees were told today to sub- mit new bids by Jan. 15 for the J976 Winter Games following Denver's withdrawal. This was announced by the International Olympic Com- mittee after IOC president Lord Klllanin was formally notified of the withdrawal by the Den- ver organizers. Information director Monique Berlioux said formal notifica- tion of Denver's withdrawal came in a cable received' today from Carl de Temple, president of tte Denver organizing com mlttec. "In view of this, it will be therefore necessary to seek fresh invitations to the Games and circulars have been pre- pared lor all national Olympic committees for replies by Jan. 15, Mrs. Berlioux said. A U.S. court order had de- layed until Monday the notifica- tion prompted by the Nov. 7 Colorado referendum agaii funding the games. A citizens' committee trying to keep the Games in Denver had obtained the restraining order, and Harry Arkin, a lawyer for the committee, outlined its position in a meeting with Lord Killanin Monday. Vancouver, which originally bid for the 1976 winter Games but lost out to Denver, still wants the Games. Montreal al- ready has the 1976 Summer Games. DISCUSS DENVER Denver's withdrawal figured high on the agenda of a regular meeting Lord Killanin had with his three vice-presidents Mon- day and Tuesday. There was no formal IOC comment on Arkin's announce- ment that his group will try to retain the Games through public fund-raising campaign. But sources familiar with IOC practices said the proposal was not likely to have stirred much enthusiasm here. Bids for the Games in Den- ver's place have been an- nounced in at least four coun- tries, including Grenoble, France, the 1968 site, Squaw Valley, Calif., the 1960 host, Arre-Falun, Sweden, and Van- couver, one of the runnerups to Denver when the site was origi- nally awarded. A decision on the replacement is expected to come in Febru- ary when the IOC executive committee has a meeting in Lausanne. That would give the host city three years to prepare for the Games, or about half the time normally allotted under IOC rules.
