QUICK THINKER Boston's George Scott avoided Tiger catcher Bill to right in the second inning of Tuesday night's game. Scolt turned Freehan but missed ihe plate as he slid home on Doug Griffin's single around just in time to score and Griffin went to second on the toss. Interceptions, safety touches It was a weekend of football records TORONTO (CP) Records B-ere the order of the Labor Day weekend in the Western Football Conference schedule, but Don Jonas, who docs his thing on the Scoreboard, bad a day of rest. Calgary Stampeders, who had never produced five safeties in one season before, registered that number in the first quarter against Edmonton Eskimos en route to a 23-7 victory. The Canadian Football League season record is six, shared jointly by Hamilton Ti- ger-Cats and Saskatchewan Roughriders. The Riders got into the record book with seven inlccreptions in Shortage of horses CALGARY (CP) The Cal- gary Exhibition and Stampede could find itself conducting a sweepstakes on only a four horse field Saturday. Entries were called Thursday on the added Stam- pede Futurity Stakes 'and only six two year olds were named to o p p o s e the favor- ed Timber Topper. Timber Topper has won 000 this season and is undefeat- ed in his last five starts. Along with Timber Topper, only Mr. Wolfe and Madly Ma- gic, a highly regarded horse from Vancouver, have shown stakes ability. Three of the entries Honor end Glory, Comptoir and Dike's Princess were scheduled to run in the Tiny Holden Mem- orial Allowance today. If these horses opt for the easier allowance race, that would leave Miss Balaspree, a filly which has never won a race, against the three main contenders. a 35-14 win over British Colum- bia Lions, equalling the WFC mark set by Edmonton in 1954 and 1938. The CFL mark of eight was set by Ottawa Rough Riders in the 1966 EFC final against Ham- ilton in the Montreal Aulostade. Jonas, meanwhile, enjoyed a day of leisure as his Winnipeg Blue Bombers were idle.

In the only other two games on the American League sched- ule, California Angels edged Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 in 12 in- nings and Boston Red Sox erupted for seven eighth-inning runs to wallop Detroit Tigers 12-6.

Hawks send Seals three CHICAGO (CP) Chicago Black Hawks traded three play- ers, including goalie Gerry Des- jardins and forward Gerry Pin- der, to California Golden Seals Thursday in exchange for goalie Gary Smith. The third Chicago player In volved in the National Hockey League swap was forward Kerry Bond, who last season scored ID goals for Denver of the Western League. Tommy Ivan, Hawk general manager, said of the Ihrce-for- one trade "Wo think Gnry Smith i.s a great goallondcr.

"With Palmer, I always have U> look for fast Howard recalled. "So he puts three curves over, right where he wants 'em. "It was just a ease of 'take a hike.' I couldn't have hit those hooks with two bats. That was the game right there." Actually it wasn't over right at that moment. It was a few minutes later, though, when Palmer also caught pinch-hitter Jeff Burroughs looking, also with a curve. Palmer scored a run for the Birds, singling to lead off the tliird inning and later com- ing in on Boog Powell's sacri- fice fly. In the sixth, Frank Robinson crashed his 22nd home run of the year and the 497th of his career. Two outs later, Dave Johnson put his 16th homer over the wall. TIE IT IN NINTH The Angels.held hitless for seven innings by rookie Bill Parsons, tied the Brewers in the bottom of the ninth on a pair of walks and Mickey Rivers' tri- ple. And when rookie Floyd Weaver took over for Parsons in the 12th, Billy Parker ended it with a two-out homer, Ms first, over the centre-field fence. Richie Allen's game-tying double triggered the Dodgers' Ilirce-rim rally in the sixth in- ning against the Padres that gave Al Downing his 18th vic- tory and boosted Los Angeles wiUiin 41i games of idle San Francisco in the National League West. ues to lead the conference In scoring and passing. His 61 points, made up of one touchdown, 20 converts, 10 field goals and five singles, leads Saskatchewan's George Reed by seven and Larry Robinson of Calgary by 12. And there's not a quarterback within hailing distance of his passing performance. In eight games, the 30-year-old Penn State alumnus has completed 114 of 213 attempts for yards and 1C touchdowns. By comparison, No. 2 man In the '.VFC, Ron Lancaster of Sas- katchewan who was selected the CFL's most valuable player last year, has passed 185 limes, with 93 completions and yards, scoring tliree touchdowns. And to illustrate hon1 well he uses Bomber receivers, three of. the top four pass catchers in the conference are Winnipeg team males, led by another ex-Argo, flanker Jim Thorpe, who is co- leader in catches at 33 will] Cal gary's Herm Harrison but tops the Stampeder tight end in yar- to 477. Winnipegers Bob LaRose and Bob Kraemer, products of Can- ada's college ranks, are No. 3 and 4 in the pass-catching de- partment with 27 and 26 recep- tions and LaRose' six touch- downs from passes heads the conference. REED TOP RUNNER Reed continues to lead the WFC running backs with 576 yards, but after last weekend'i games his margin over runner- up Jim Evenson of B.C. nar- rowed considerably. With 576 yards compiled in half a season and another yard year within sight, Reed leads Evenson hy only 12 yards and the Lions' fullback has game in hand. Bill Van Burkleo of Calgary, with a 43.8 average, has a slight edge in the punting department of i.l yards over Ken Phillips of B.C. Rookie Mike Leveille of the Lions has moved into the lead among the punt return special- ists with 37 for 275 yards. Winni- peg's Paul Brule slipped to sec- ond with 258 yards off 33 re- turns. Mack Herron, another Bomber, continues the runaway leader in kickoff returns with 537 yards from 20 carries.

SHOES I Friday, 10, THE LETHSRIDGE HERALD JJ Kryczka has dropped his role of the rebel CAJjGABY (CP) Joe Kry-, czka can no longer be described as a rebel in the Canadian Ama- teur Hodtcj Association, but tliis doesn't, mean he's going to suppress his views. As new CAHA president, Kry- czka is planning changes he hopes will help amateur hockey while improving "the function of the CAHA." He's not about to change Can- ada's position on the interna- tional scene "until the Erueo- pcans change their attitude about professional players." The former president of the Alberta Amateur Hockey Asso- ciation who replaced Ear] Daw- son of Dauphin, Man., as head of the CAHA earlier this year, says he and other branch presi- dents were "categorized as reb- els" when they didn't agree with some CAHA policies during a meeting in 1968. "My main complaint. was Uial we n-ere still operating (he CAHA the way it had been 20 years ago." SEES SLOW CHANGE Kryczka, 36, says he doubts anything will be settled quickly on Lhe international scene. "The big problem is that we seem to have a division inside Canada between the Olympic Association, ourselves and Hockey Canada, The Canadian Olympic Association maintains the Olympics are a different category of hockey from world tournament play. "There is no difference as far as I'm concerned. They're all the same teams and they're all professionals. For the Olympic people to say their competition is different and we compete on the same level is sheer non- sense." Canada will not send a team to the Olympics in Sapporo, Japan, next February because the International Ice Hockey Federation will not allow profes- sional players in world champi- onships staged m non-Olympic years. "The funny part of the situa- tion is Avery Brundage, presi- dent of the International Olym- pic Association, and Bunny Ahearne, president of the HHF, say they would allow European teams to play Canadians in a series of exhibitions, allowing us to use as many professionals as we Kryczka said. IT'S HYPOCIUSY "They say European teams wouldn't be contaminated in ex- hibitions, but as soon as they play in any kind of sanctioned tournament they would be con- taminated I don't follow [hat reasoning and it's hypoc- risy." The CAHA president, a law- yer, can't understand the latest controversy which started wlien the Sapporo Olympic committee said it had sent a formal invita- tion last July inviting Canada to compete in the hockey portion of the Olympics. Kryczka says Hockey Canada and CAHA officials met in Au- gust and voted 9 to 2 against sending a team after reviewing "an Invitation which was only informal." "They made their decision, Shen relayed that information to Harold Wright of Vancouver, president of the Canadian Olym- pic committee, who was to relay the information to the Japanese. 'Why this hasn't been done is beyond me. 1 don't believe the Canada meeting was a secret." Kryczka isn't peprared to send a "team of college players to the Olympics even if they're the best in Canada, to be whipped by the proefssional Russians, Czechs or ANDY CAPP I OF COURSE SHE'LL (TAKE "fER BACK. WV SHOULbNT SHE: WHEM TWO AVE LOVED AS MUCH AS US, WHAT COULt) EVER CHANGE-? THE FLIPPIN' LOCK ON THE FRONT DOOR Death ruled accidental MONTREAL (CP) Coroner Laurin Lapointe Thursday ruled that the death July 27 of Jamai- can boxer Danny Tucker follow- ing a non-title fight with Cana- dian junior welterweight cham- pion Reynald Cantin was acci- dental. Dr. Jean Houle of the Quebec Medico-Legal laboratory, who performed an autopsy on the fighter, told the coroner's in- quest that Tucker died of mas- sive bemorrhaging and skull fracture, probably caused by re- peated blows to the head. Referee Hosario Baillcrgeon, who stopped the fight in the 10th. round when Tucker appeared to be losing control, testified that the young fighter "was not out- classed" by Canlin. "He defended himself well and was alert until about 20 sec-, onds from the end of the fight, when his eyes became glassy and he couldn't keep his hands up." Baillergeon said. Tucker, 25, collapsed against the ropes after the fight was called and lapsed into a coma.
