Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 17, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 14-THE LETHBRIDQE October Graham Kelly's Football Hot race shaping up in West Conference Former Stamp named Lark general manager B.C. has 16 points, Edmon- ton 15, and Saskatchewan and Winnipeg, 14. All this adds up to the hottest race in the Western Conference in recent memory. It has been so hot that the entire picture can change in a single weekend of play. Last week it looked very much as if Saskatchewan and Winnipeg would battle it out for the third playoff spot with Winnipeg holding the decided edge. The Blue Bombers still could have an edge over Saskatchewan, but all is not lost for the Mean Green Machine from Regina, Both Saskatchewan and Winnipeg accomplished what they had to over the Thanksgiving weekend. Win- nipeg had to split their en- counters with Hamilton and Ottawa. They did. Saskatchewan had to defeat the British Columbia Lions. Although Eagle Keys brought the best Lion team in many a moon into Taylor Field, the hex was on, and when the cold, windy after- noon ended, B.C. had gone away empty handed for the 14th consecutive time. B.C. hasn't beaten Saskatchewan in Regina since 1965, or in SPECIAL OFFER HAVE YOUR MANUAL PORTABLE or STANDARD TYPEWRITER CLEANED, OILED and ADJUSTED PORTABLE ...................................1250 INCLUDING NEW RIBBONS STANDARD INCLUDING NEW RIBBONS ADDING MACHINES ....................1550 INCLUDING NEW RIBBONS not Included. CHINOOK OFFICE MACHINES 620-13 StTMt North Vancouver for three long seasons. General Manager Jackie Parker vows revenge this Saturday night when the Roughies come to romp on the artificial turf at Empire stadium. But fate could very well take a strange twist for the Leos and their northern Alberta cousins, the Ed- monton Eskimos. If Saskatchewan manages to defeat both B.C. and Montreal in their last two games, and B.C. splits their remaining two meetings with Edmonton, Saskatchewan would be in'the playoffs and B.C. would be out. That's right. The team that has been in first place, tied for first place, or flirting with first place through three quarters of the season could tumble right out of the playoffs. If Saskatchewan wins on Saturday, look on all of this as a distinct possibility. What about the Eskimos? Picked by most (including me) to finish first, the Klon- dike kings now face an uncer- tain future. I suggested a month ago that Edmonton might run into trouble near the end of the schedule because they had a tough row to hoe in their last six games two at home and four on the road. That, in fact, has happened. The Eskimos defeated Hamilton with a'great com- eback in the last eight minutes, lost to Toronto, tied Montreal after dominating the Alouettes, and were humiliated by Calgary. In other words, the Green and Gold managed only three points in four games. Instead of having a lock on first place, the Eskimos will now have to scramble hard for it. BOMBERS ON MOVE If Winnipeg defeats Ed- monton Sunday, and then goes on to down the Stampeders twice, the Eskimos would likely miss the playoffs. For a city that thought that they should cancel the 1974 season and ship the Grey Cup to Ed- monton, such an occurence would naturally be 'a bitter disappointment. But three wins in three games for Win- nipeg is a distinct possibility; it would be a good bet. That would mean Winnipeg, a team that appeared to be headed nowhere in August, would finish first with 20 points. A Saskatchewan win over B.C. and Montreal would give them 18 points, good enough for second if the Lions split their two games with Ed- monton, (B.C. and Saskatchewan would be tied with Saskatchewan getting se- cond place by virtue of a better record against Edmonton would then be out. However, Edmonton can put an end to the suspense by winning the rest of their games. The Eskimos would then finish first by at least three points. The first of the key games goes Saturday night in Van- couver, televised by the CBC at p.m. local time. Can the B.C. Lions finally end the hex that Saskatchewan has on them? They will never have a better opportunity if the holiday weekend encounter is any in- dication. On a cold, rainy, windy Sunday at Taylor Field, the Lions moved the ball very .well. Don Moorhead, who Eagle Keys favors because he is an "intelligent quarter- directed his team well, avoiding serious mistakes. The defences made the difference. B.C. stopped Saskatchewan on their own five yard line, and who can remember the last time that happened? Bill Baker, Bud Magrum, Garrett Hunsperger and Gary Robinson make up an excellent front four. Ray Nettles is, of course the best linebacker in Canada. Dan Dever complements him at one corner, although Peter Palmer is a weakness at the other. The Lion defence is tough. But so is Saskatchewan's. 1 Ignition system 2 3 5 analysis. Lubricate heat riser valve. Supply and install new points and condenser. Supply and install new spark plugs.

Lome Richardson scored two touchdowns, one when he fell on the ball in the end zone after Ted Provost blocked a punt, and the other on a questionable call when he picked up a fumble and ran it in for the major. It was darn fortunate for Saskatchewan that Richardson and his fellow defenders were on the ball, because the offence did nothing at all, with the notable exception of George Reed who picked up 119 yards rushing. Lancaster, as I predicted, ran Bobby Thompson around the end numerous times, yielding nothing until the dy- ing minutes of the game. It was strictly a defensive battle last Sunday with some odd bits of football thrown in on occasion to make it interesting. The officials made five calls. The Rider touchdown of Richardson was a case where the play should have been whistled dead. Everybody, including Richardson, thought so. When he picked up the fumble, he had to be urged by a teammate to run with it, and even then he stopped near the goal line before proceeding in. Later on, Ken McEachern picked up a ball fumbled by Tony Moro. The official ruled an incomplete pass. Slade Willis caught a pass, fell on the ground, got up and ran for a touchdown. He should have been down. Later on, the same thing happened with Bob Pierce of Saskatchewan. On another play, the Rider punt return man tried a lateral but it went out of bounds. It was a forward lateral, but the ball wasn't taken back. To top it all off, the clock wasn't being stopped on converts. The B.C. press corps was muttering that there was no way B.C. could win in Regina. Supervisor of officials Don King.told me after the game that, "Those things just shouldn't happen. Our guys really made some bad errors out there today." So they did, but, to be fair, the officials usually do a pretty fair job. Although you only fall on your head when you go out on the limb and make predic- tions, I'll do it anyway. Ed- monton, bedevilled by incon- sistency, and smarting from a loss to Calgary, will soundly trounce the Blue Bombers Sunday. Then they'll split their remaining games with the Lions for 19 points. Saskatchewan will defeat B.C. on Saturday night, defeat Montreal and finish with 18 points. Winnipeg will see the bubble burst by losing to Ed- monton and once to Calgary and finish with 16 points. The final standings will, therefore, be Edmonton, Saskatchewan and B.C., with Winnipeg and Calgary on the outside looking MONTREAL (CP) Bob Geary, a 40-year-old former lineman with Calgary Stampeders and Montreal Alouettes, Tuesday was nam- ed general manager of the Canadian Football League club here. Geary takes over from head coach Marv Levy who had fill- ed the dual role of coach and general manager since owner Sam Berger fired J. I. Albrecht last January. "Bob's appointment is simply the confirmation of a job which he's been doing since Berger said. Levy had advised Berger early in September he wanted no part of the dual respon- sibility. "Once the football season starts my entire time is devoted to running the team on the Levy explained. Geary, a native of Montreal, had been assistant to Albrecht and had acted as general manager since Levy's ANDY CAPP September decision. Since then, Geary has been looking after everything from stadium maintenance to the team's travel arrangements. "I guess one of the first things I'll be doing is start signing players for Geary said. "Once we get that out of the way, we've got to do something about our season ticket sales." The Als, with the highest payroll in the CFL, have only season subscribers. In their last two home games against Toronto Argonauts Sunday and Edmonton Eskimos one week ago they drew just over fans to the Autostade for each game. Berger claims that's short of "the break-even point." Geary, a graduate of local junior ranks, had to go to Calgary for the and 1956 seasons to gain CFL employment. 1974 Mirror Nwipipen Ltd. lift.

Not your overage service slot Ski shops must be more aware EDMONTON (CP) A three-day seminar for ski, equipment technicians has j been told that ski shops must j be more aware of safety developments to reduce the possibility of accidents suf- fered by customers. Doug Pfeiffer of New York, Editorial Director of Skiing Magazine, told the meeting of about 150 technicians from across Western Canada Tues- day that broken legs are epidemic on United States ski slopes and similar statistics are likely being reported in Canada. Much of the blame, he said, lies with technicians and shop owners who im- properly match up equipment skis, bindings and boots. In addition. Mr. Pfeiffer said, there is the problem of ensuring that skiers are knowledgeable about equip- ment design. Ski shop mechanics, he said, must become more aware of the subtleties involved in fitting skis and bindings to the customer and most be capable _- j of making any necessary 9 modifications to the boot ight. and these The sealed beam headlamp now has a wider field of vision and will not dim when the brake is applied.
