And while-they have playec entertaining football, they'v been thwarted by interceptions They have had 22 passes pickei off, only seven less than during the entire 19GD season. Coach Ray Jauch said in an interview: "We've got to win our next two or three games." The Lions, picked by so-calta experts to finish out of the WFC playoffs this year, are in secom place and will he out to extend their winning streak to four in a row while handing Edmonton their fifth straight Loss. B.C.'s streak started here Aug. 13 when they trounced the Eskimos 35-7. Then they beat Calgary 27-13 and last week edged Ottawa Hough Riders 32 30. Last week, Edmonton lost 31- 23 to Ottawa while giving up seven interceptions. However, JaucH says he expects intercep- tions when "we pass as much as we do." For tonight's game he'll go with basically the same lineup as in the Ottawa game although offensive tackle Willie Young will replace Joha Harper.

A sellout crowd here Sept. 12 for Hamil- ton Tiger-Cats' visit could sur- pass the total home attendance for last season. O'Quinn said the club sought immediate success when it "went to training camp with a lot of good people, although we also knew they had to leant to play together to become a win- ner." "I know we've been fortunate to win the close ones so far, but that's a good sign for a ball O'Quinn said. Key trades, excellent recruit- ing, solid coaching and profes- sional organisation have been the club's strong this year. The policy continued Monday when the Als signed George Springate, Liberal member of the national assembly for Mont- real Ste. Anne, to take care of the place-kicking chores.

He said the club has worked lard to instill the dislike of jeing dubbed n loser "tlirongh- mt tlie organization, and so far t has seemed to work." O'Quinn, who along with Etch- everry was a star with the Als n his playing days, said he re- mains slightly disappointed in 11 e n n c e for pre-season games.

(CP) A group of London businessmen announced Monday it will make an informal application Sept. 8 for entry of a London team into tlie Canadian Football League in hopes it can field a team by the 1972 season. The committee in charge of organizing the move said it would huild a seat stad- ium at a cost of nearly Bob Harris, a London real es- tate agent and a member of the committee, said the stadium would have an astro-turf fiek surface and an all-weather track. He said CFL commissioner Jake Gaudaur has been recep- tivs to the idea of such a bic which would round the league out to 10 teams. CFL bylaws call for unani- mous acceptance by the East- ern Conference teams and nf all nine teams in the league, seven must agree. Mr. Harris said the informal application is more of a letter of inquiry, but if the reply is en- couraging the group will for- mally apply at the Grey Cup. Bob VanKleek, general mana- ger of London Lords of tlie Sen- ior OBFU, said "from the standpoint of balancing their schedule our entry makes com- mon sense. Geographically, we are ideally situated." Mr. Harris said he wasn't worried about raising the CFL entry fee, but said the cost and method of player availability worries the group most. It is Ihe group's under- standing, he said, that players might cost each under a draft system. In Edmonton, Jack Baker, president of the Edmonton Es- kimos of the Western Football Conference said: "It's some- thing the league has looked for- ward to for a good number of years." Mr. Baker said a London team would balance the league teams in each conference make scheduling much easier. London could support a learn because it is the centre of a heavy population belt, he added. Jn Ottawa Frank Clair, gener- al manager of the Ottawa Rough Riders, said today a Canadian Fcotball League fran- chise for London, Ont., "may be feasible" but that supporters of the ides irill h.ive to take a "hard look" at the cost in- volv.ed. "Ten teams in L'IC league would Ire ideal." Clair said in Halfback Jim Thomas is in camp on a fivfi-day trial after being cut by Los Angeles Rams of the National Football League, but he won't play against the Lions. Thomas left the Eskimos at the end of last season after being their chief offensive threat for several years. Rusty Clark and Don Trul will share quarlerbacking duties again and Jauch hopes they'l cut down on the number cf off- the-mark passes. The Eskimo defence will have SULLY SAYS -By Pat Sullivan i today sees Hie end of summer's heat. At least now there is a place to go and see some snow snd see your breath. Lethbridge Sugar Kings take to the ice lanes to- night at Adams Ice Centre at and will take on, it lias been promised, a new look under coach John Chapman. Chapman, as many of you know, was Scolty Mun- ro's choice of coach after Munro's Centennials of Cal- gary signed a working agreement with the Sugar Kings. JMuiiro, he will readily admit too it, has never been a loser. He hasn't won everything but he has won more than his share and he likes Chapman. A better backer a young coach couldn't ask for. Chapman is young by coaching standards, he's 25, but a real leader and this will help. If he can get the respect of the young fellows he will coach, then he will have the battle half won. The rest will come 'in having a good year in the Alberta Junior Hockey League. We wish Chapman, and the Kings, the best of luck for the coming year. I'm looking forward to spending my nights at the Arena already. Still with hockey, I had a visit from a very proud father recently. It seems Jack DeHeer of the city, went to Glen Bather's Hockey School In Banff this past summer and was voted the top forward at the school. His dad, Gerry, informed me that the whole family will spend a good portion of their spare time polishing the trophy Jack brought home. I enjoyed a coffee Saturday with Bill Johnson and it seems he has been named the commissioner of the Southern Alberta High School Football League. The reason for his buying coffee was to approach this family journal with regards to publicity for the coming year. He didn't have to buy coft'ee, I assure you. If you know Bill at all you know he is too big to say no to. Besides the fact he is an all round nice guy and is doing his part to keep high school football going in Lethbridge. There will be three teams again and the first ac- tion will take place this coming holiday weekend when the steadily improving Winston Churchill Bulldogs tan- gle with Stettler Saturday evening at Henderson Park at eight o'clock. LCI Rams will meet the Grads Sept. 11 for their first taste of action and then Catholic Central Coc- ars, defending league champions, will play host to Bishop Grandin Sept. 12. The league kicks off Sept. 18 with the Rams nnd Cougars doing battle. How do you figure the Canadian Football League? Before the first football was Jacked off belter than a month ago Toronto Argonauts was the club to beat. Ottawa would be weak and the Saskatchewan Roughriders would rule the west. The tables have been turning in rapid fashion of late. The Argonauts failed to find any western hospi- tality on their recent venture west. The upstart Winnipeg Blue Bombers, who couldn't put together 60 minutes of football in their first four games, stopped the Argos and then the Toronto crew arrived in Regina where they were outclassed and went home empty-handed. Ottawa Rough Riders aren't as strong as they were last year1, everyone knows that, but they won't be as weak as most people think. What I have to admit though is the surprise show- ing of the B.C. Lions. They are going to cause a lot of trouble before this season is out. They have begun to jell and this can only mean trouble throughout the west. The Lelhbridge Royals had things pretty much their own way Saturday as they belted Edmonton Italia 6-2. Peter Durrans and John Fromradas each scored twice with singletons going to Alvin Teitz and John Stropnic. If the locals had been able to contain Tony Petronl, who scored both Edmonton goals, they would have a six-goal cushion going into tins weekend's final game for the Challenge Cup. an interview.
