Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta folurdny, Oefob-r 74, 1970 THE LETHBRIDGE Hf.HAtD It Eskimos Can Wrap Up Second Place Tonight Crucial Struggle Facing Lions, Stamps By THE CANADIAN PRESS For British Columbia Lions, the opposition and year have changed, but the objective and script are still the same. The Lions, who clinched a playoff berth last October with a key victory' over Edmonton Eskimos, will be in Calgary Sunday for a Western Football Conference game against the Stampeders.. Weekend action opens tonight in Edmonton with the Eskimos battling last-place Winnipeg Blue Bombers. The Eskimos could extend their six-game winning streak and capture sec- ond place for their best finish since 1961. Edmonton, eight points behind the pennant-winning Saskatche- wan Roiighriders, holds second place with 16 Calgary is FOOTBALL FASHIONS You cannot Earsell Mackbee, injured Minnesota Viking corner back, is not with it far os the mod clothing style is concerned. Here he is strolling off the field in an outfit that almost demands a second look. Boo Birds Irk Hab Blueliner By THE CANADIAN PRESS Defenceman J. C. Tremblay must be wondering today just what he has to do to please the fickle Forum fans. Tremblay, a regular with the National Hockey League Mont- real Canadiens since the 19CO-61 eeason, appears to be the butt of fan displeasure every time the Canadiens lose a hockey game whether or not he is in any way responsible for the loss. Just a few weeks after ths club ussed a playoff berth last season, J. C. was summoned to general manager Sam Pollock's office. Pollock wanted to know in no uncertain terms whether or not Tremblay wanted to re- main with the club. Trfimblay's affirmative an- swer, spiced with determina- tion, decided the issue that sent Ted Harris, three years older at 34, to Minnesota North Stars. "The club wanted to know just how I felt about the situa- tion here and whether I would be any good for the team Tremblay recalls. "I was fed up about many things last year and complained a lo and the management didn't lito my attitude. Tremblay's game is some- thing Forum fans delight in when the 31-year-old defence- man is in true form. One weel ago when the Canadiens trounced Chicago Black Hawks 6-2, he drew three assists. Bu more important, he controlled the game most of the time he was on t' 3 ice. in Montreal's 3-1 loss to the North Stars here Wednesday night, the boo birds were again on Tremblay's back He played adequately, but per- haps the sight of Harris doing a yocman chore on the visitors defence brought on the outburs again. Before Wednesday night's fan reaction, Tremblay figured he was on his way to regain the all-star, rating he enjoyed four years ago. "It feels good to get started like this for both myself and the he said. IS MY CAR READY FOR WINTER? How Is My ANTI-FREEZE HEATER BATTERY TIRES 9 BLOCK and HEATER FLUSH A FALL TUNE-UP IS A MUST!

DRIVE PHONE 327-5406 don pilling (CALGARY STAMPEDERS, as inconsistent as some politicians of note, can earn a berth in the Western Football Conference, playoffs if they subdue B.C. Lions Sunday afternoon in Calgary. If they lose, however, the only other playoff road left will be to beat Winnipeg in their final game and fervently hope Saskatchewan Roughriders wind up the regular league campaign with a victory over the Lions. Either way, it's an interesting 'situation and the Cowboys, as is usually the case in Frustrationville, will likely have the die-hards suffering from a king- sized case of the jitters right up to the final whistle. It's amazing how topsy-turvy a path the football merry-go-round travels. A few weeks ago the guess- perts had it pegged, so they thought. Saskatchewan and Calgary were shoo-ins to meet in the final, B.C. was a cinch for the third playoff spot and every- body and his dog in Edmonton were screaming for the scalp of Eskimo coach Ray Jaueh and his vast collection of incompetents. The change, as I.say, is amazing and also some- what amusing. The Stampeders and Lions are fight- ing for their playoff lives, the Eskimos have won six straight, Jauch was named the other day Canada's coach-of-the-year and there are many who now feel the Roughriders face a serious Eskimo threat in their bid to make the Grey Cup scene for the second year in a row. Nobody asked me, but today the picks are Mon- treal over Ottawa and Edmonton over Winnipeg. I hope I don't bruise too many feelings, but the call for the big one Sunday is for Jackie Parker and company to topple the Stampeders before their long- suffering public. Just call it a hunch. In the other games, it's Toronto over Hamilton Sunday and Sas- katchewan to end Edmonton's .winning streak at seven Wednesday night. That'll clear the decks for the windup next weekend. Muhammad. All launches his boxing comeback Monday night in Atlanta and Georgia Governor Les- ter Maddox has declared the day one of mourning. No joke the man is serious. "I hope he gets beat in the first says Maddox. "Flattened out. to the count of 30." In his proclamation, Maddox said brave men have fought for the United States for nearly two cen- turies. He added, "now, there comes into our midst a man who has steadfastly refused to be inducted into the armed forces of the United States of America, contending he does not wish to inflict pain upon, do bodily harm to, or kill a fellow human being. "This same individual, nevertheless, is scheduled to engage in a boxing bout for compensation even though in doing so he will be inflcting pain upon and could possibly cause serious bodily harm or death to a fellow human being and a fellow American." Maddox said that "to glorify an individual -who has so callously foresaken his duty to lus country represents an affront to every American who has answered the call and sacrificed to protect our republic." I wonder if he'll be on hand to see the blood- letting? Maybe you're wondering why Cincinnati manager Sparky Anderson sent Pat Corrales to bat for Hal McRae, the Reds' leading hitter, in the ninth inning of the final game of the World Series tactically, it was an illogical move, but it was a 'decision of considerable warmth Corrales, the father of four, lost his wife in an auto accident last year he was the only Red player who hadn't appeared in the series explained Anderson "I'm six runs down, two out and none on. How could I pre- vent that man from telling his kids one day that he appeared in the World And in an- swer to a query, Paul Blair led the Orioles at the plate with nine hits in 19 appearances for an aver- age of .474 while Brooks Robinson was 9-for-21 for .429 McRae had 5-for-ll for .455 and Lee May 7-fbr-18 for .389 The Reds' big guns went pop instead of boom, John Bench hitting .211 and Tony Perez .056 What's this about Saskatchewan half- back Bob Pearce missing the playoffs because of a hitch in the U.S. Army?

Jackie Parker, B.C. tea coach, says. "It's the game of the year fa us. If we win it, we've got an excellent chance of making th playoffs, if we don't we're ou It's as simple as that."
