Winning Ways ,'L JkJyjJiQ flunnjn EDMONTON (CP) For the first time this year, Edmonton Eskimos showed a respectable running game as they surprised British Columbia Lions 20-9 in a Western Football Conference game Tuesday night. Tile Eskimos picked up 179 yards along the ground, only 52 yards fewer than they had gained rushing in their first six- of which they lost. Alan Pitcaithley, formerly with New York Giants of th National Football League, wa mainly responsible for th change. He gained SO yards on 14 car many of them in key situa tions where power up the mit die was needed. Terry Swarn, who carried sb times for 64 yards, scored hot; Edmonton touchdowns, one on 50-yard pass-and-run play am the other on a 39-yard running play. On each occasion Ms tre- mendous speed made the score; possible. CUTLEIl CONVERTS Dare Cutler converted thi touchdowns and kicked fiel< goals of 14 and 43 yards to com plete the Eskimo scoring. B.C. got a touchdown from miarferback Paid Brothers from one-yard out, a convert and a single from Ted Gerela and single by Ken Phillips. The win moved Edmonton into fourth place in the WFC with four points, two ahead oi last-place Winnipeg Blue Bomb- ers and two behind Calgary clinched the with 10 points in 13 seconds in the fourth quarter. On Swarn's first touchdown he took a short pass over the mid- dle from quarterback Don Trull, followed a key block by Mike Eben, then hot-footed it into the end zone without a B.C. de- fender getting close to him. His last-quarter score was an individual effort around Hie right side of the Edmonton line and past the B.C.'s dcfciisiv backs. It came on the first play from scrimmage following John interception o a Carroll Williams pass am only 13 seconds after Cutler hai kicked his 43-yard field goal. They Won't Need Prodding Stampieders.

The memory of their last en- counter enough. should be motive In that meeting, Calgary de- feated the Bombers 34-10 bu they had to score 33 of their points in the second half after trailing 10-1. It was the beginning of a trend for the Bombers who were defeated in their next three games because they couldn'l play consistent football in the late stages. TORONTO (CP) Jake Gau-1 for a new stadium with seating daur, Canadian Football LeaKs j capacity of at a cost of commissioner, said Tuesday me earliest possible date a decision could be made on a London, Ont., franchise application would be next February. A group of London business- non announced plans Monday :o seek a CFL franchise for the 1972 season. Bob Harris, a London land de- veloper, made the announce- ment on behalf of flic group, and said a letter of intent would )e given to Gaudaur in time for ail Eastern Conference execu- tive committee meeting Sept. 8. Gaudaur said the next full CFL executive meeting will be in Toronto during Grey Cup yeek, Nov. 22-28, when league governors will get their first chance to consider an applica- ion. The next annual meeting is the second Thursday in Febru- ary, "the earliest possible date at which any actual decision by he league could be made." Gaudaur said in an interview t would require seven league members to accept a new fran- chise and unanimous accept- ance of the conference in which the new team enters. "All that has taken place so r is a conversation between and one person from Gaudaur said.

Reaction from several CFL clubs Tuesday indicated that most would favor an additional team in the EFC, mainly be- cause it would provide balance with the five-team Western Con- ference. General manager Earl Luns- ford and president Paul Quintan of Winnipeg Blue Bombers and president Jack Baker of Edmon- ton Eskimos agreed that five teams in each conference would make scheduling much easier. Puck Clinics Filled Up The response to the City of Lethbridge Recreation Depart- ment sponsored hockey clinics has been so great the registra- tions have been concluded. According to organizer Steve Arisman they can't accomo- date even one more boy for either the pee wee or bantam clinic. Registrations opened Monday, and Tuesday afternoon they were filled. The pee wee clinic, for boys 10 and II, will get under way Sept. 14 and run through until -lie 18 while the Bantam clinic, for boys 12-14, is from Sept. 21-26.' Instructors for the schools will be Hector Negrello, Stan That siring was ended lasi week when the Bombers put to- gether 60 minutes of solid, crowd pleasing football to win their first league game in upset- ting Toronto Argonauts 28-22. "We were in every game until the fourth quarter, said Winni- peg head coach Jim Spavital. "But we weren't mature enough. We have a lot of young men who were here last year but they're still rookies. They'll improve though because they aren't afraid to work." Spavital said defence is Bombers' biggest problem at the moment but "we're going to win more ball games than peo- ple think." Spavital said nobody should be surprised if Winnipeg emerges with a victory over Calgary, but he'll be fielding a reshuffled team when they meet n the match to be televised on western network begin- ning at 7 p.m. MST.

Stampeder coach Jim Duncan vent looking for some strength at left offensive guard and came up with John Atamian, ormer Saskatchewan Roughri- der who was cut recently by Winnipeg.

At this stage, the United States holds an overwhelming margin of gold medals over the other countries. It has 19, to nine for the Soviet Union, two for Italy and one each for Yugo- slavia and Hungary. Canada has won no golds ar silvers and only one bronze so far. Two golds will be at stake today, the men's javelin and the race. Miklos Ne- meth of Hungary is favored to take the javelin title but in the metres competitors were considered evenly matched. As track and field tennis was moving toward an end with three finals today and two on Thursday. Ada Bakker and Tina Swaan of The Netherlands faced two Japanese sisters, Kazuko and Yunko S a w a m a t s u, for Uie women's doubles final. In men's events, two Japa- nese, Sakai and Kamivazumi, were to play the Soviet couple Lejus-VohW in the doubles final. FAVORED IN SABRE In the men's individual sabre, the Soviets are favored to take their fifth title in the sport. Gymnastics, inen's and women's basketball and volley- ball are all in the final stages. Canada was 12th after Tues- day's men's team gymnastics events with 69.25 points. Japan led with 85.35 followed by tie Soviet Union and the U.S. As the Game: moved into Edmonton coach Ray Jauch their eighth day of competition was elated rath his team's sec- the big political question was have refused to play Israel in the men's basketball and volley- ball tournaments and the Alge- rians also have refused to play Portugal for political reasons. The Algerian basketball team was demoted to the bottom of the tournament standings for its two defaults. There were re- ports that in case of further po- litical controversies, a team might be expelled outright. ANDY CAPP WJREALWARE- ond win of the season. "We finally got some good of- fensive blocking which allowed the wide stuff to he said after the gams. "I think that with the people we now have we will be able to run outside and off tackle." Jaueh also said that the def- ence, which picked off four B.C. passes, played an outstanding game. "We used a stack defence. The last time we played B.C. they ran wild. This time we had the linebackers up close which meant we had to let Brothers pass, but that we could stop Jim Evenson and A. D. Whitfield from running." Wydareny's interception was his sixth of the year, tops in the Canadian Football League. Swarn caught three passes for 74 yards and leads the CFL in receptions with 28. Tom Nettles caught two and is second in the CFL with 24. Over-all, Edmonton had a net offence of 339 yards, 179 rushing and 160 passing while B.C. to- ailed 242 yards, 88 rushing and 154 passing.
