Second-Place Battle Resumes In Western Football Circuit Bruins Roll To Another Victoi Orr Finds Range Against Seals By IAN MacLAINE Canadian Press Staff Writer �When Bobby Orr is ready to play, it's going to be rough around the National Hockey League for Boston Bruin opposition. The revamped California Golden Seals found that out Friday night when the league's outstanding defenceman scored his first two goals of the season in leading the Bruins to a 5-1 victory. Orr, the first defenceman In NHL history to win the league scoring title, was held scoreless in Boston's first two games and came out of last Sunday's encounter against Detroit Red Wings nursing a charley horse after colliding with Frank Ma-hovlich. Boston general-manager Milt Schmidt said this week the 22-year-old Parry Sound, Ont., native had Ms worst training camp after spraining his wrist in the Bruins first exhibition game against Chicago Black Hawks. "But he's been going real well," said Schmidt, "and requires a lot of attention from the opposition which leaves others on our team more room in which to operate." While Orr was scoring his first two goals, centre PhU Es-posito picked up a goal and Real Traffic Jam In National Loop By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS J 3-1, square off against the Vikings at Minnesota. In the American Conference, The National Football League goes into its fifth week Sunday with 11 teams tied for first place in six divisions, including seven upstart clubs who are out to prove they belong on top. Detroit Lions and Green Bay Packers, both picked to finish behind defending NFL champion Minnesota Vikings in the Central Division of the National Conference, have the most difficult task of. holding their share of a three-way tie with the Vikings, all at 3-1. Detroit, beaten for the first time last week by surprising Washington Redskins, travels to Cleveland for a clash with the Browns, the 3-1 leaders of the Central Division of the American Conference. Green Bay has to take on the visiting Los Angeles Rams, certain to be an angry crew after their upset loss to San Francisco '49ers last week for their first loss in four games. San Francisco, another surprise which pulled into a tie with the Rams in the Western Division of the National Conference, plays host to New Orleans Saints and is a strong favorite. EAGLES WINLESS In the Eastern Division of the National Conference, surprising St. Louis Cardinals (3-1) are expected to keep at least a share of the top against winless Philadelphia Eagles but pre-season favorite Dallas Cowboys, also Denver Broncos remain the leaders in the West at 3-1, but the Broncos have a difficult assignment at home against Atlanta Falcons. In the East, Baltimore Colts and Miami Dolphins, both surprises, are deadlocked at 3-1, but the Colts must play at New York where the pre-season favorite Jets are almost healthy again. Miami also could have trouble at Buffalo against the Bills. In other games Sunday, Kansas City Chiefs play Cincinnati Bengals; Houston Oilers entertain Pittsburgh Steelers; San Diego Chargers will seek their first victory at Chicago against the Bears and New York Giants meet the Patriots at Boston. ftoyal Winter pair M.

Wayne Cashman and veteran Johnny Bucyk were the other Bruin marksmen against the West-Division cellar dwellers whose lone goal was scored by Dennis Hextall on a breakaway. Six games are scheduled for tonight and another six Sunday. Chicago visits Montreal Canadians, New York Rangers are at Toronto Maple Leafs, Minnesota North Stars are at home to Detroit, St. Louis Blues entertain Buffalo Sabres, Philadelphia Flyers are at Pittsburgh Penguins and Los Angeles Kings are host to Oakland in tonight's games. Sunday Montreal is at New York, Toronto at Philadelphia, Boston at Vancouver, Minnesota at Detroit, Pitsburgh at Buffalo and St. Louis at Chicago. The Golden Seals, who changed their name Thursday from Oakland Seals and skated on to the Ice for Friday's lone NHL encounter in new home uniforms, extended their winless string to three straight m West Division play. The Bruins moved into a share of first in the East Division with Montreal, each with six points. GIVEN UP ON FERGUSON The Canadiens, meanwhile, have given up any hope that veteran John Ferguson will rejoin the club after it was announced in Montreal Friday that the hard'-rock winger's business is thriving. Ferguson, who retired 10 days ago, confirmed his knitwear firm had been sold and that both he and his business partner had expanded their activities. He cited business pressures as one of the reasons for quitting. Toronto veteran George Armstrong is doubtful about his future with the rookie-laden Maple Leafs and will be a spectator for tonight's game. Armstrong said he's not talking retirement openly, but his 1970-71 contract has not been signed and there had been no indication from Toronto management they were prepared to sit down with him in the immediate Mure.

By THE CANADIAN PRESS First and last places in the Western Football Conference j are clinched, but Canadian Football League action this weekend on the Prairies is a continuation of a fierce Calgary-Edmonton battle for second place. Edmonton Eskimos, riding a five-game winning streak, meet the cellar-locked Winnipeg Blue Bombers today in Winnipeg, while Calgary Stampeders travel to Regina to take on the Saskatchewan Roughriders Sunday. Saskatchewan's 22 points virtually assure the club of first place and Blue Bombers, with four points on two wins and 10 losses, cannot catch either Calgary or Edmonton, both now tied for second with 14 points. British Columbia, in fourth place with 10 points, is idle this weekend. Edmonton's coach Ray Jauch is worried about the possibility of his team letting down after five straight wins, even though Eskimos have defeated Bombers in their last three encoun' ters. WILL TRY ANYTHING "Winnipeg has nothing to lose, said Jauch. "They'll try anything. We don't know what some of their new players can do." One of Winnipeg's new players who will see limited action is halfback Dick Smith, obtained in a trade from Montreal Alouettes. Coach Jim Spavital said the amount Smith plays will depend on how much he can pick up by game time. Doug Strong however, will start in Bombers' backfield in place of the injured Amos Van Pelt. Eskimos will use fullback Jim Mankins, who was recently released by Ottawa Rough Riders, against Bombers. Two kingpins, one each for Saskatchewan and Calgary, will be absent from the lineups Sunday in the Regina game, to be televised on the CTV Western network, starting at 2 p.m. MST. For Roughriders, fullback George Reed, for five consecutive years a Canadian all-star, is out until playoffs in mid-November with a fractured leg. KEELING IN HOSPITAL And Stampeder quarterback Jerry Keeling still is in hospital with cracked ribs and a bruised kidney he suffered in a game against Montreal two weeks ago. Keeling may be out until the start of the playoffs, but the Calgary club has refused to confirm or deny the report. Rookie quarterback Larry Lawrence will make his second start in the Sunday game. Said Calgary coach Jim Duncan: "He did a fine job last week against Edmonton." "He made some mistakes, which is quite typical for a rookie ... but we might have won the game if not for a blocked punt." It was Edmonton's 16-13 victory last Monday that pulled them into the second-place tie. In the Eastern Confer e n c e, two weekend games are scheduled with Hamilton in Ottawa today to face the Rough Riders with Montreal invading Tor-onto Sunday afternoon to tackle the Argonauts. Ottawa has been eliminated from the playoff race but the battle continues among the other three teams for first place. The Alouettes lead the Ticats and Argos by two points in their bid for their first confere nee crown since 1956. Remaining games will see Ottawa at Montreal, Toronto at Hamilton, Ottawa at Toronto and Hamilton at Montreal. Argo coach Leo Cahill has brought in flanker Billy Gam-brell, a former star with Detroit Lions of the National Foot- ball League, to fill in for sus-'pended Jim Thorpe. The suspension came after Thorpe refused treatment for a knee injury suffered in last Saturday's game against British Columbia Lions. Canadian Football League commissioner Jake Gaudaur made the suspension official after interviewing Thorpe but the Alouettes view it as a move by Argos to avoid putting the flanker on the injury reserve list where be would have to stay for 30 days. "Everyone bends the rules when they can I guess," said Als coach Sam Etcheverry. "But you'll have to admit this one does set some kind of precedent." Sam Etcheverry knows his Montreal Alouettes have beaten Toronto Argonauts twice this season but he also recognizes that Argos are an improved club for their third meeting Sunday. "We've played well against Toronto," said the Montreal coach as the Als prepared to defend their lead in the tight Eastern Football Conference race. "But you always know they are going to be tough. "They havo a lot of talent, and they've made changes since the last time we played." ANDY CAPP El Rancho 6th AVE., M.M.
