Oakland manager Dick Williams after his West Division cliampion Ath- letics lost their third in a row to the powerful Orioles. The Orioles' sweep gave the defending w o r 1 d champions their third consecutive pennant. And. each time, they've swept the West titlist. "They've got stars and super- stars, youth and experience, great pitching and great field- ing." said Oakland's Reggie Jackson, who slugged two home run? Tuesday. "They've got ev- erything."

I TORONTO (CP) In To- ronto Argonauts' two-quarter- back system, Joe Theismann has emerged as the most im- pressive signal-caller this sea- son, but partner Greg Barton mrte up for it off the field. When Barton, 24, joined the Canadian Football League club this year, he said one of the factors that influenced his move from Philadelphia Ea- gles of the National Football League was the opportuniites here for developing as a coach. Barton, therefore, has been keeping his coaching future in mind while sharing quarter- back duties with Thiesmann, the rookie from Notre Dame. In 11 games, Theismaan has completed 101 of 184 passes for yards and has kept the ball for a net gain of 47G yards in 64 carries along the ground. Barton, sidelined during the last two Argo games with a broken finger on his throwing hand, accounted for 657 yards with 51 of 83 passes completed in nine games.

Set for at the Lethbridge Community College anyone in- terested in referecing this com- ing season are urged to attend the meeting as there is a short- age of officials. Leo Cahill and his staff pre- pare the pass offence. He's had some really good ideas on said Cahill. "In fact, he's got cue of the best commands of the pass offence I've seen in a young player. He's far ahead of his years." Ploys developed by Barton were often a product of his experience in the NFL but knowledge of the Canadian game was always handy from assistant coaches Frank John- ston, Gord Ackerman, Jim Hountree and Bob Gibson.

Boxers calher An organizational meeting for the Lethbridge amateur boxing club will be held Thursday even- ing at seven o'clock in the boxing club's room in the old Central School building.

Registrations for participants will be held at a later date. up, they'd tell me whether it would work in Bar- ton said. "When we settled on something, we'd present it to the head coach. "He's very receptive to our ideas, but you've got to be able to sell your point." 1VANTS TO LEARN Barton's objec live is to learn as much as possible about the game and make as many contacts as possible among players and coaches. Barton says he hopes even- tually to step into a head coach's position without hav- ing to apprentice as an assis- tant. "Later on when I have a head coaching job some- he said. "I'll need assistants and it'll pay to know something about guys who might be available, say fellows like Calgary's Jerry Keeling." "There arc a lot of frustra- tions to being an assistant conch. I've seen a lot of guys over the years with son.c ideas they couldn't sell and that, friend, is frustration." WAKES IT 3-1 He did and it gave the Orioles a 3-1 lead that Sal Bando cut to one run with a towering home run to left in the sixth. But one run was as close as the fallen Athletics were to come. Frank Robinson slugged a run-scoring double in the sev- enth and later came home on a wild pitch to give Baltimore its final runs. Jackson drove in Oakland's last run of the season with an- other shot that rattled around the near-empty seats in left centre. Despite the sweep which gave the Orioles a record in play- off games. Weaver scoffed at dyns'slv talk. "Heck, there's not much of a difference iietwcen the top said the dynamic, little manager. "There's not that much difference between the Orioles and the Athletics."

In Western Eight Football League action, the Cardston St. Mary's Warriors moved into a second place tic, by edging the Cardston Cougars 16-14 Tues- day night. The Warriors currently share second place with the defend- ing champion Picture Butte Elks with a 4-0 record, but one game won by the Warriors is still under protest. If the officials agree to give the to the Warriors, it would push them into a first place tie with the Raymond Comets with a 5-0 record. In last night's contest, Nar- cisse Blood was brilliant scor- ing both the Warrior's touch- downs. His second one came with three minutes left in the game to give the Warriors the vic- tory.
