PHONE 328-9271 FEW WEEKS BACK we pointed out the dan- gers associated with the use of lead in shot- gun shells which are used in wild waterfowl hunt- ing. The birds picked up the shot pellets along with seeds and gravel on the bottom of sloughs and sim- ilar other water impoundments. The lead entered the gizzard and the result was poisoning in the bloodstream. Some times the birds suffered an agonizing illness before death took over months or weeks later. Scientific studies clearly showed there was a need for the replacement of lead in shot shells. This year, seven of the largest National Wildlife Refuges in the United States showed at least one major change in waterfowl hunting. For the first time, non-toxic soft iron shells, the recommended sub- stitute to lead shotshells, were used by waterfowl hunters participating in a special program. But, despite the overdue introduction of an al- ternative for lead, the pilot project is being seriously questioned by the shooters. As the hunters check through the headquarters of the designated refuges on certain days, they are sup- plied free with an allotment of iron shotshells and a questionaire. The evaluation committee iJi each case consists of representatives from the bureau of sports fisheries, sporting arms industry, state fish and game agency and some of the private conservation organizations, including the National Wildlife Federation. Exactly how the program is to be evaluated has been of key concern to the NWF. The NWF is wor- ried that the misuse of the program could cause un- necessary delays in the implementation of iron shot. Early this year the NWF said that the program was intended to gauge hunter reaction, and not the harm done by lead shot. The NWF had retorted that the lead versus iron study would be meaningless if it was going to test hunter reaction. The organiza- tion referred to scores of resolutions it had passed at conventions which urged the outlawing of lead shot by the beginning of the 1973-74 waterfowl sea- son. It also said the presence of observers at trials could not offer assistance in identifying any enforce- ment problems. The most closely supervised pilot program would be of little value in assessing compar- ative crippling losses. The NWF stresses that the focus of the pilot pro- gram must now be on hunter education. The organi- zation stresses that when all the informaiotn is com- piled, it will show America's waterfowl hunters that iron shot is acceptable and a much needed substitute for lead. The major manufacturers of shot shells in North America have participated in the project. A com- plete changeover is expected to be costly, and may have to be enforced by government through legis- lation. Canadian hunters meanwhile, are gurgling the sentiments of their U.S. counterparts, and thankful their American friends are rich enough to force such a major issue. Riders. The next day, the aroused Ticats took Ottawa apart 21-7 and won the round 26-24. The next year Toronto Argo- nauts bounced the Ticats 25-7 in Toronto, but following another rally Hamilton beat Toronto 48- 2. Again in 1964 a rally followed a 30-13 loss to Ottawa and sure enough Hamilton won the next game 26-8 to take the round 39- 38. There were no rallies the last two years and both times the Tiger-Cats were beaten on the round: 43-26 by Montreal in 1970 and 40-25 by Toronto last year. Meanwhile going to the national football championship has not been a serious problem for Saskatchewan Roughriders over their event-filled history. The big problem has been win- ning the game and with it, the Grey Cup. Eiders have gone in quest of the coveted trophy 11 times since their inception in 1910. They have won it just once, in Next week, Saskatchewan makes its 12th attempt. The op- ponent has yet to be decided but it will be either Ottawa Rough Riders or Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats, two clubs currently near the end of a week-long halftime in a J20-minute football game. The eastern Riders hold a 12- point edge going into Sunday's second game of a two-game, to- tal-point final In the Eastern Football Conference. Meanwhile, Saskatchewan head coach Dave Skrien has given his team a three-day rest period which ends Sunday. The Roughriders board a plane Wednesday morning for Ham- ilton and final preparations for the Dec. 3 contest. HAVE NO PREFERENCE It doesn't matter to Sas- katchewan which team it meets in the Grey Cup. "We owe them said quarterback Ron Lancaster. "Hamilton beat us in the 1967 Grey Cup and Ottawa beat us in the 1969 game. We owe them both." The last decade has seen Sas- katchewan in the Grey Cup three times. Prior to that there was a great void as the Rough- riders made the Canadian final just once (1951) In more than 20 years. Between 1928 and 1934, Sas- katchewan journeyed east six times for the championship, al- beit under another name, and each time they came away sec- ond best. Their first test in 1923 was probably one of the most humiliating defeats ever. They were stunned 54-0 by Queen's University. While the Roughriders' record in Grey Cup competition leaves something to be desired, at least two of their performances in playoff competition should be marked with asterisks in record books. The one still fresh in the minds of all football fans was staged just last Sunday in Win- nipeg against the Blue Bomb- ers. Riders were down 21-7 at half- time and 24-7 early in the third period of the Western final, and it looked as though Winnipeg had only to conduct mop-up op- erations to sweep the aging Rirt- ers under the rug. Maybe that was the mistake because the Bombers soon found the Riders were far from dead and when time ran out the score was 27-24 for Saskatche- wan.

Lions beat New York Jels 37-20. The expected passing duel be- tween Landry and New York's Joe Namatli didn't materialiie as three players broke 100 yards Taylor ef the Lions and John Riggins and Cliff McCIain of the Jets. Taylor scored on a .18-yard touchdown run with loH after linebacker Charlie Weaver intercepted a Namath pass. Linebacker Skip Vanderbundt ran 73 yards with a recovered fumble and 21 yards with an in- tercepted pass for touchdowns and quarterback Steve Spurricr tumcd in a performance as the '49crs blasted the Cow- boys. It was the first victory for '49er coach Dick Nolan over Tom L.inclry, his former boss and old leam-malc, and marked the first time in 15 games Dal- las had lost in Texas Stadium, its posh million foolhall pal- ace. With Dallas leading 7-0 and driving, Dave Wilcox and Van- derbundt learned for a spec- tacular play lhat lurned the game around in the second quarter. Wilcox clobbered Cowboy quarterback Craig Morion. Vanderbundt said: "The ball took one houncc and there it was. I just scooped if up awl ran. It may have looked as if I was trot I in', hut I was running for my life." Dallas dominalcd the first half, allowing only five first downs, bul Ihe lurned if around, giving the Cowboys only four first downs in the sec- ond half.
