Lions Give Tom Nellies A Five-Day Trial Must Games Facing Eskimos, Bombers By THE CANADIAN PRESS Fans who hold to the theory Dial football is played between the morale and find meat for armchair psychology in this weekend's Western Footba Conference games. Edmonton Eskimos, reportec beset by morale problems an with a 2-6 record, play host to night to Saskatchewan Rough riders, riding high with a showing. Winnipeg Blue Bombers, 1-6 injury-ridden and with home town fans wondering abou coach Jim Spavital's hardnosc approach, play in Vancouve Sunday against confident Brii ish Columbia Lions, who hold 4-3 record. Lions are holding down Ih last WFC playoff spot, tw pouits behind Calgary Stamped ers, 5-3. Edmonton and Winni peg are, therefore, facin "must" games. One Edmonton player i: quoted as saying team member: would cheerfully give apiece to play for the Lions in stead. Tom Nettles, the little 'flanks cut by Edmonton to make way 'or Jim Thomas, arrived in Vancouver Friday for a tryou iVith won't play Sun said he'd like to stay SAYS ALL TRUE Of tlie Edmonton picture, he said: "Those stories about the earn morale being low are true You just can't believe how bat t is there.

Saskatchewan which stoppec Winnipeg 30-11 Monday, will tart sore-armed Eon Lancastei at quarterback and Steve Mol- nar will replace injured Bobby Thompson, out for six weeks at "lalfback. Roughies beat Edmonton 23-11 ;arlier this season. Spavital's juggling act with Winnipeg continues. John Senst akes the flanker spot of Ken ielsen, who has what the club alls "a real problem" with his leek. Ron Johnson will probably tart at quarterback, with Wally abler still nursing a bruised oot and the memory of a shout- ng match with Spavital after a ecent loss to Calgary. TWO CHANGED Spavital Friday cut import li- ebacker LaVerle Pratt and Ca- atiian defensive back Peter 'rancis. They were replaced by w o defensive backs, import lana Stephenson and Canadian iob Larosc. Lions have done a little shuf- ing too, with Vic Washington, reluctant all-Canadian who eally wants to play for San Yancisco 49ers this year, given he word to dress Sunday. If he plays, he'll have to wait ntil next year to try with 49ers. The National Football League ule is that if a player plays one ame in Canada, he can't join Nijiiisky Triumphs DONCASTER. England (AP) Nijinksy, the American- owned super horse that was bred in Canada, today won the St. Leger racing classic and stretched his unbeaten run to 11 wins in 11 starts.

ANDY CAPP DOESN'T COME VERV NEAR EITHER, ALICE MONEY DOESN'T GO VERY THESE bAY Directors Treated Unfairly Baker Not Too Happy EDMONTON (CP) A se ries of columns by Wayn Overland, sport columnist fo the Journal, today were scribed as being a series 'half-truths" by Jack Baker president of Edmonton Esk mos. The three-part series b Overland said the Western Football Conference team is o the verge of revolt and tha morale is at an all-time lov Basically, Overland "said, It problem with tlie club was in terference in operation of th team, by directors who wer 5ood businessmen, but wh knew little of how to run professional football team. "He (Overland) has take half-truths from two or 'thre years and put them all togetl Baker said. "As a rule do not comment on such co umns. In situations such as this quote of the late John F. Ken nedy most aptly describes in thinking. One of the greates cancers at work in our societ. :oday are those persons wh deal in half-truths and un truths'." Overland, in his first column said that after an Eskimo ex ribition loss, 47-7 to Torontt Argonauts, Baker asked gues coach Rod Dowhower to mee director Jack Agrios for an evaluation of (he situation. A h e meeting Dowhower 'launched an attack on the tac ics and capabilities of Edmon assistant coach Joe Zale ki." Of that Baker said: "I musl mblicly state that the action .ttribuled to me with respecl o these gentlemen is a com- ilele and utter falsehood." In today's column, the lasl ol h e series, Overland said ookie head coach Ray Jauch f the Eskimos is being "drag- ed down" by circumstances eyond his control. Tlie 32 year old coach, oungest in the Canadian Foot- all League, had made mis- akes in his first year, but muld be retained for another >eason. 'Half a season isn't enough o judge a coach, but SVz sea- ons is enough time to eval- ate an organization. Some- ling is wrong with Ihc Eski- 10 setup." Overland said that since the skimos began a rebuilding after hitting the skids 1962. Ihcir record of 47 wins, j losses and four lies has. been e worst in the WFC.
