Bnt in the Edmonton dressing room, where coach Eay Jauch might be expected to be cele- brating the win that gave the Eskimos first place in the Western Football Conference, it was a different story. "We're not No. said Jauch despite his team's B-l record. "We're loo young and I list of veteran Edmonton play- ers sidelined with injuries who haven't been together as a team long enough but we may eventually. "We have the material, but we're not able to field the best club because of injuries." He was referring to a long were joined by middle line- backer Jerry Griffin early in Sunday's game. Griffin, who called the team's defensive plays, hobbled around tho dressing room his leg aped from ankle to thigh t was not known how long ha would be out of action. Jauch said the leg might :iave to be operated on and Griffin is not expected to play in next Sunday's game against Saskatchewan Roughriders in Regina. Newcomer Ken Philips and defensive back Mike Lam- brose were also on the limp after the game. Other Eskimo regulars out of action due to injuries are tackle Kock Pcrdoni, all-star defen- sive end Ron Forwick, fullback Sam Scarber and defensive back Mike Law. While deploring the Injury sit- uation, Jaueh had praise for quarterback Tom Wilkinson svho replaced first-stringer Bruce Lemmerman, who suf- fered a shoulder separation early in the season. Wilkinson fired a three-yard touchdown pass to George McGowan in the second quarter and an 11-yard loss lo new- comer Roy Bell for another major in the final minutes of play. Fximonton's other touch- down came when defensive back Dave Walker blocked a Stampeder punt and ran it to pay dirt. Dave Cutler's oflen-erralic toe supplied the Eskimos with their nine remaining points on two 22-yard field goals and three converts. The Stampeders were held to two 41-yard field goals kicked by Larry Robinson in the first quarter and didn't score again until the fourth. Robinson also converted both Calgary's touch- downs. Newcomer Fritz Seyferth plunged two yards into Edmon- on's end zone early in the ourth and quarterback Jim ,indsey hit Gary Kerr on a momentarily (lower right) while trying to br eak up the fight.

CFL official Floyd Cooper lost his glassei By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Eddie Kaslto always has been known for his diplomacy, and he certainly won't change now that liis Boston Red Sox have their biggest lead of the season in the tight four-team American League East pennant race. "I couldn't pick out a single aspect as to why we're win. tactful Kasko said Sun- day after the Red Sox had swept a doubleheader from Cleveland Indians 5-1 in 12 in- nings and 2-0, increasing their lead to games over run- ncrup Baltimore Orioles. "We've been getting good pitching for quite a added the Boston manager. "But if I said the pitchers were doing it, the hitters would get mad. It's been a combinaton of everything." Baltimore, winner of the Easl championship (he past three y e ,1 r s blanked Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 as Jim Palmer scattered seven hits for his 19lh victory. New York Yankees, in fourth place, games back, dropped Detroit from second to third, two games behind Boston, slop- ping the Tigers 5-0 on Mel Slottlemyre's three-hitter. Oakland Athletics, seeking their second straight West Divi- sion title, increased their lead to 3Vi games over Chicago, trouncing the Texas Rangers 7- 2 while the White Sox were los- ing to California Angels 5-1. Kansas City Royals downed Minnesota Twins 3-1 in the other American League game. On Saturday, Cleveland de- feated Boston 2-1, New York beat Detroit 3-1, Chicago nipped California 3-2, Minnesota de- feated Kansas City 3-2, Texas edged Oakland 3-2, while Balti- more beat Milwaukee 8-0 and 2- 1. Boston's two victories over Cleveland gave the Red Sox 11 triumphs in their last 17 games and a 46-26 record since July 1, when they were 7Vi games "We're on a hot ad- mitted Kasko "but we haven't played Detroit or Baltimore in quite a while." Top spot in the National League West is pvctty far out Short sport of sight for Los Angeles Dodg- ers, but No. 2 isn't so far away and Frank Robinson thinks it's where the team soon will be. "We have plenty of time to catch up with Robin- son said Sunday, after the Dodgers beat the Astros 3-2. "It's great any time you can come from behind Eke that." The Dodgers are 914 games behind division-leading Cincin- nati Reds but Houston is just ive-yard touchdown pass with wo minutes left. Individual heroics by defen- sive tackles that turn a game around are unusual but the un- usual happened in two Eastern Football Conference encounters on the weekend. Ottawa Rough Riders were trailing Montreal Alouettes 23- 21 early in the linal quarter at Ottawa Saturday night when Rider tackle Rudy Sims inter- cepled a George Mira pass and lumbered 26 yards for the go- ahead touchdown. The Riders added another touchdown and a field goal for a 38-23 win, their fifth against one loss to keep them solidly in the EFC lead. Hamilton Tiger-Cats were down by four points in the fina quarter at Toronto Sunday when tackle Bruce Smith picked off a Wally Gabler pass and took it to the Argonaut six yard line. Dave Fleming ran for the touchdown on the next play and the Ticats pulled out a 22-18 Alouetfes 38-23.

SAVERS WILL QUIT CHICAGO (API Gnle Sa- yers announced his retirement from Chicago Bears Sunday. The two-time all American from the University of Kansas and five-time All-National Foot- ball League choice in his early I'ears with the Bears, had rcever fully recovered from knee trouble dating back to 1968. The halfback's decision to quit came after a dismal show- ing in the Bears' 33-14 loss to St. Louis Cardinals In a pre- season game Saturday night. It was an admitted final test for Sayers, who lost much of his speed and quick change of direction after a violent tackle by defensive back Kertnit Alex- ander of San Francisco '49 in 1968.
