It was accepted on Cah- 'cfair was coach-of-thc-year in ills behalf by a representative of Ihe Argonaut club. Cahill, one of the less popular coaches in the has guided Ihe Argos to 46 wins and 30 losses in five seasons, but his hopes for a Grey Cup game al- ways have been thwarted. Rough Riders have ousted To- ronto from the Eastern Football Conference finals twice in the last three seasons. Montreal Al- oucltcs knocked them out of the semi-final in 1970. Argos now lead the EFC with 10 wins and three losses, four games ahead of second-place Hamilton Tiger-Cats. CabiH's success this year has been attributed to vast sums ol money which the club poured out to attract, good players from Ihe United States, among them quarterbacks Joe Theismann and Greg Barton and lineman Jim Stiliwagon. Cahill considers himself emo- tional, sly, dedicated, a nice guy and a good football coach. He can't understand why most peo- ple, many of whom don't even know him, have such a negative opinion of him. "My personality has been por- trayed here (CFL) in a false light." he once said. Cahill, a former coach of To- ronto Rifles of the Continental League, played centre at Uni- versity of Illinois and was Ihe only freshman on the team that romped to a 45 14 win over UCLA in the 1946 Rose Bowl. Cahill was lured lo the Al- in 1960 by former Illi- nois leani-male Perry Moss. He worked there under Jim Trim- _ j ble in 1963 and for five games in 1964 and then quit to enter pub- lic relations work.

The former ail-star centre- fielder, now living somewhere in Europe, has claimed ever since St. Louis Cardinals traded him in 1949 to Philadelphia Phil- lies that baseball's contract vio- lates both stale and federal anti-trust laws and is a form of slavery. His chief lawyer is Ar thur Goldberg, former Supreme Court justice. The court did not comment on any of Ihe issues. The case will be heard later this term. The target of Flood's attack is the so-called "reserve which hinds ballplayers to Ihe learn lhat holds their contract.
