EDMONTON (CP) Wayne can't afford to pay the largest Overland, sports columnist for the Journal, says the "belliger- ent personality" of Edmonton Eskimo general manager Norm Kimball has contributed to dissatisfaction on the team. Overland, in the second of a series of articles on the Eski- mos of the Western Football Conference, says the players generally dislike Kimball. He says the play.ers under- stand that even though the Eskimo organization only break even after drawing 93 per cent capacity at games, it salaries in the Canadian foot- ball league. Kimball had the personal- jty to use salesmanship in con- tract negotiates, the players might more readily accept his offers. "But as one player says: 'it's tough to discuss contract with Kimball, usually it ends up in a shouting match.' Overland .says when this happens the player is either "bullied" into accepting or gets his back up.

For a number of years, says the story, the Eskimos have been pouring big money into new talent but it hasn't paid off with anything resembling a winner.

Banks Powers Way For Chicago Over Expos All Three Leaders Register Victories By TIIE ASSOCIATED PRESS son Ernie Banks, thwarted twice attempting to sacrifice bunt, swung away and 'crashed a three-run homer that snapped a 2-2 tie and sent the Chicago Cubs flying to a 9-3 triumph over Montreal Expos Wednes- day ill National League baseball action. Milt Pappas, acquired late in June from Atlanta Braves, after failing to win consistently with them or the Cincinnati Reds be- fore that, hurled six innings as he won his 10th game as a Cub. The victory kept Chicago just one game off the pace of the Pittsburgh Pirates and New York Mets, co-leaders in the torrid National League East battle. The Pirates blanked St. Louis Cardinals 2-0 on Luke Walker's two-hitter while the Mets had to go 14 innings before subduing the stubborn Philadelphia Phil- lies 3-2 on Cleon Jones' run- scoring triple. In other games, San Fran- cisco Giants trounced Houston Astros 11-0, Cincinnati battered Los Angeles Dodgers 13-4 and San Diego Padres edged Atlanta 3-2. TAKEN OUT The 39-year-old Banks also de- livered a run-scoring single in the seventh inning and received a standing ovation when he left for a pinch hitter. It was Banks' 12th homer this season and No. 509 lifetime, placing the Chicago first base- man only two homers behind Mel Ott's 511 and the eighth spot on the all-time list. Pappas yielded four hits and left for a pinch hitter with a 7-3 lead. Walker, 12-6, struck out nine and only walked one as the left- hander helped snap the Pirates losing streak at three games. The only hits Walker gave up Briles, 5-6. The Pirates id a run in the fourth on Bob Robertson's sacrifice fly. Jones' one-out shot off the right-hander field wall, scored Tommie Agce who had walked, sending the sizzling Mets to their sixth triumph in seven games. A two-run homer by John Briggs had tied it at 2-2 in the sixth for the Phils. The Mets got their two runs in the third as Bud Harrelson stole home and Art Shamsky had a run-scoring single. Right-hander Gaylor Perry tossed a four-hitter for his 20th victory and Willie Mays slammed a two-run homer, his 27th, as the Giants routed Hous- ton. Perry, 20-13, joined his brother Jim Perry of the Minne- sota Twins in becoming the first brothers in major league history to capture 20 games in the same season. The Twins' righty is 22-11. Baltimore Orioles and Minne- sota Twins were given go-a- heads by baseball commissioner HirGS Ignored By Officials TORONTO (CP) Two of five Canadian hockey players jailed in Johannesburg recently for breaking their playing con- tracts said Tuesday their plight was ignored by Canadian offi- cials in South Africa. Floyd Thomson of Capreol, Ont., near Sudbury, said the thing that "disappointed me when we were in jail was that we got no help from any Cana- dian officials." "The Canadian consul there said it was a piivate matter and he couldn't interfere." The Thomson, Jim Whit- aker of Nobel, Ont., Doug Scott of Midland, Ont., Rene Labonte of Quebec City and Bill Mac- Leod of Leduc, Alta. were ar- rested on a Friday night for breaking their contract with a Johannesburg team to play in Durban. They were not released until the following Monu'ay. "It was only because our sponsor in Durban hired a law- yer for us that we were able to get out and eventually win the said Thomson who ar- rived back in Canada with Whit- aker.

Thomson, 21, will be attending St. Louis Blues' Nationa Hockey League camp in Ottawa next week while Whitaker will be taking hi Baltimore Clippers' American League camp. Thomson said the argument with the Johannesburg team stemmed from team officials not making good on promises given the players. "They promised to pay our hotel rooms for a month and then find us said Thom- son. "But they couldn't find us any decent jobs. "When the hotel told us the bills weren't being paid and we had two days to get out, we de- cided to leave." He said that the five had joined a Durban team and played only one game before their arrest. BILLED COURT COSTS The aftermath of their five- minute court appearance was that the complainant was billed R6.000 for their court appear- nce. "That's over said Thomson.

In fact, the clubs are m o r e balanced than any other year in its history and should pro- vide some very close and excit- ing entertainment. Catholic Central Cougars, the defending champions will lose a great deal of poundage on the line, therefore leaving most of the work for the speedy back- field. The LCI Rams have also lost a great deal of weight on the line and must depend wholely on its always threatening offen- sive lineup. Winston Churchill Bulldogs have lost only a few players and have picked up some in or- der to form a contender. Looking at their last years showing they provide some tough competition for the Rams and Cougars. Jim Whitelaw and Ms Hams will get their first taste of ac- tion this evening at eight when they will tangle with the Grads. This game will be staged at the Henderson Baseball Park. CCHS on the other hand were scheduled to host the Calgary Bishop Granden Saturday, but extra auricular pay in Calgary the game has been cancelled. The Cougars will not not be able to see any action until they officially open up the football league September 18 against the LCI Rams.
