By THE CANADIAN PRESS A cloud hangs over the four Eastern Football Conference cities as they prepare for Thanksgiving weekend games, hut it's got nothing to do with the weather. Ottawa Rough Riders are la- boring under rumors out of Montreal that head coach Jack Gotta's days are numbered. Head coach Al Dorow says the record turnover in Hamilton Tiger-Cat personnel hasn't ended. And both Toronto Argonauts and Montreal Alouettes are mending their lame for Sun- day's meeting in Montreal's Au- tostade where an Argo victory] will ensure Toronto of a first-! place finish for the first time hi 11 years. The R i d e r s' mathematical chances of making the EFC playoffs are dwindling and they need a victory in today's meet- ing with British Columbia Lions to keep their hopes alive. The Lions move over to Ham- ilton against the Ticat-s Monday for a 2 p.m. EOT game lo be] carried on the CTV national net-: work. The Toronto-Montreal game, set for 2 p.m. EDT Sunday, will be carried on CTV's Eastern network. TIME WILL TELL Ottawa owner David Loch de- nied Gotta's job is on the at present. lie and general man- ager Frank Clair would reas- sess the situation when the sea- son ends. "We should be able to make up our minds in a week at the said Loeb. "I'm not say- ing that our coach is being) fired, but I don't like having a last-place club. Ottawa, with just throe wins in 11 games and apparently des- tined to miss the EFC playoffs for the second straight season, made one lineup change this week Involving two former Ed- monton Eskimos, dropping wide receiver Terry Swam in favor of fullback Bob Humard. The Lions, third in the West- ern Conference, have juggled their offence, moving flanker Jim Young to his old halfback role for the Eastern games, and j brought in Ross Boice, a 230- j pound defensive tackle-end from Los Angeles to replace, injured i Bob Liggett. I Dorow was particularly em-1 p'natic about the status of his j defence, earlier in the season touted as one of the strongest in the Canadian Football League. DEFENCE SHAKY He admitted his biggest worry is at defensive end where John Baker hasn't lived up to expec- tations- In Hamilton's 28-20 loss to Saskatchewan this week, Rough Rider fullback George. Reed cracked over Baker's side almost exclusively for more than 160 yards. There's a feeling around Hamilton that Dorow may have lost the core to his defences when he dropped Rock Perdoni in Baker's favor. Perdoni was picked up by Winnipeg and Hamilton players quoted Reed as saying the ej-Ticat has bol- stered the Blue Bombers' de- fences. Montreal scoffs at Toronto coach Leo Cabin's claim that he'll field a team with between 13 and 17 injured players. It, prompted .Montreal's director of I player personnel, J. I. Albrect, to send a telegram of condol- ence to the Argos. Among those injured Argos who could see action are half- back Leon McQuay, the EFC's leading ground gainer despite missing the last two Toronto games with a knee injury, and defensive end Dave Knechtel for an injured elbow. Webster bids for Padres Be sure to see the exciting Teenage Boys' and Girls' Wednesday end Thursday, October 13th-14th R P.M.

TORONTO (CP) R. How- ard Webster, chairman of the board of The Globe and Mail, said Friday he has submitted a bid to purchase San Diego Padres of the National League. If the deal goes through. To- ronto would be the second Cana- dian city with a major league baseball team. Montreal Expos joined the National League in its 1968 expansion, the same year the Padres entered. The value of the offer was not revealed but Webster, 'Who made two bids for the club in recent months, said he expects to hear from San Diego director C. Arnhold Smith some time next week. Webster said he is acting alone at the moment "although we may need a little help later if our bid is successful." Smith, a San Diego industrial- ist, and banker, is co-owner of the Padres with E. .1. (Binzy) Bavasi. sjub president. The Smith and Bavasi groups each owns 50 per cent of the Padres i stock. i Lome Webster, nephew of the j Globe's chairman, is a director of the Expos. Bavasi moved to San Diego from the I-os Angeles Dodgers in June 19M. lie was general manager of the old Montreal Royals, a Dodger farm club in the International League. S'an Diego was the only club in the NL lo attract fewer than one million spectators during the 1971 season. In San Diego Friday, Bavasi said his organization received five offers of purchase last week, including at least one from Canada. strong sense of modesty about his own ability. "The only asset I've got is basically quickness and getting off the ball real fast." A win for Calgary's hometown crowd would eliminate Saskat- chewan's chances of finishing first. It would also force British Columbia Lions, who have a mathematical chance of taking the title, lo win their remaining five games for a berth in the VVFC final. In other games, Winnipeg Blue Bombers visit Edmonton Eskimos Simday afternoon while B.C. plays two in the east. The Lions, tied for the third and final playoff spot with the Bombers, meet Ottwawa Rough Riders Saturday and Hamilton Tiger-Cats Monday. Hellun, in his third year with the Stampeders. said Saskatche- wan is a "tremendous team." Sizing up the Rougliriders, who were outscored 27-0 in an exhibition game against Cal- gary and 21-0 in a league con- test, Helton said: "Quarterback Ron Lancaster and fullback George Reed are certainly the two players you recognize as being able to hurt you the quickest." Lancaster, who needs one more touchdown pass to set a Canadian Football League record of 186, is "like a shadow" when he's scrambling behind the line of scrimmage. The first-place Stampeders will have to watch out for Sas- katchewan tackle Ed Me Quarters if they want to pre- serve their lead "He's got tremendous courage to play with only one says Helton. "You take enough shots witli two eyes." "He's the same McQuarters as far as a straight one-on-one pass rush is concerned. "But any time he's got lo go to his left there's going to be an instant where he's going to have to rely on his quickness, or there's going to be some adjust- ment he's going to make to do the job as effective as he used." McQuarters lost bis left eye during nn accident in his home in the spring. Helton, a 24-year-old native of Mount Union, Perm., said he only wanted to play in the Na t.ioiial Football League so his dad could watch him on televi sion. He doesn't believe he should receive good publicity al the time. On one occasion this year, he called a Calgary newspaper and asked the sports department to not write about him all the time because there are other player: on the team. The six-foot-three, 240-pounder was a "jack-of-all-trades" a1 Arizona State, playing fullback- tight end and defensive tackle He was selected in the sevcntl round of the college draft by Buffalo Bills of the American Football League. Helton, also a professiona' wrestler, was named to the WFC all-star team as a defen sive end in 1969 and as a defen. sive tackle last year. lead and held until three min- ulcs were left ill the game. But Al McDunoiigh tallied at the 17-minule mark, then Mike livers scored with 55 seconds left to give Los Ange- les the tie. Only S.M'l lans watched the contest at Oakland. SITTLEIl U'INS IT Darryl Sillier scored al Vancouver with less than six minutes in Ihe game to win for Leafs. The Leafs, playing without captain DRVC Keon, out with a knee injury, took the lead twice before finally winning. Bernie Parent was brilliant in Toronto's goal in the first two periods when the Canucks outshot the Leafs 17-12. Then the Leafs turned on the pressure, beating Canuck goalie George Gardner twice on eight shots while Vancou- ver counted on one of four shots at Parent. Chicago Black Hawks shipped forward Dan Maloney and defenc'jman Rick Foley to their Dallas farm club in the Central Hockey League. Malo- ney scored 12 goals with the Hawks last season while Foley, who played for Port- land of the Western Hockey League last year, saw limited action in the Stanley Cup playoffs. CUT MORRISON At Philadelphia, the Fryers cut Lew Morrison, sending the veteran right winger to Rich- mond Robins of the American Hockey League. Bobbv Orr, Boston Bruins star defencetnan, suffered a back muscle spasm in prac- tice at Boston Friday but a club .spokesman said Orr should be ready for the Bruirs' opener against New York Rangers at Boston Sun- day. At Montreal, the Canadiens traded goalie Lyle Carter lo the Golden Seals in exchange for left winger Randy Rota. Carter played with Montreal AHL farm team, Nova Scotia Voyageurs, while Rota was with Providence Reds of the AHL. North Stars goalie Ccsare Maniago was injured in a practice at Minneapolis and win not slart in Minnesota's opener Saturday al Detroit against the Red Wings. Mani- ago caught a puck in the moulh and needed seven stilches to close the wound. In other weekend games, the Rangers visit Montreal Saturday, the Black Hawks tangle with the Blues in St. Louis and Philadelphia Flyers play the Penguins in Pitts- burgh Toronto visits Ihe Golden Seals. Detroit goes to Chicago, the Penguins travel to Buffalo to meet the Sabres and the Kings invade Vancouver.

Spavilal played down both UK new contract and Uie new hair- cut and said the important thing was to win three more football games. The Bombers, playing razzle- dazzle football, still have chance at the palyoffs but hopes are fast fading. British Columbia Lions need to win three of five remaining games to make the playoffs and the Bombers need three wins in three games. In announcing the new con- This year he and offensive coach Dave Smith have had quarterback Don Jonas throw- ing the football at anything that moves. Jonas has thrown 398 passes and completed 207 of them. The potent passing display was only one of the reasons that Winnipeg football fans were re- turning to the stadium. The Bombers were scoring as never before and had added new wrin- kles that other teams called old skulduggery. First there was Hie greased uniform gag, that failed to get a smile out of the Calgary Stam- peders. Then were several ver- sions of the dropped ball-hidden ball trick.

Spavilal, a quiet unassuming man, gives credit to both Smith and defensive coach Jim Stan- ley for the team's progress (his season. "Tlie contract was for more than one said coach Spavital, "but I wouldn't care if it were for five years. If we are losing because of me I'll know it's time to get out."
