They were suspended for refusing to play without a new contract. In ths game, Rod Gilbert scored with 28 seconds left, after Francis pulled goalie Gilles Villemure, to give Rangers the tie. Bob Nevia, Mike Robitaille and Don Luce also scored for the Rangers. Buffalo's goals were scored by Bill Inglis and Reg Fleming with one each and J. G. Lagace, with two. La- gace, a hard-hitting defence- man, beat nelminders Ed Gia- comin and Villemure with hard-rising shots. Rangers outshot Buffalo 48-31 but were stymied in the first two periods by the acrobatics of goalie Dave Dryden. Lions Seek Second Spot Ottawa Makin. OTTAWA (CP) With the Eastern Football Conference schedule at the half-way point, Coach Jack Gotta still is mak- ing changes in the lineup of Ot- tawa Rough Ridel's. Tight end Freeman White, cut this week by New York Giants, and Canadian defensive back John Kruspe, let go by Eiders earlier, will be in Ottawa uni- forms Saturday for a game against Calgary Stampeders. Gotta also is taking a hard look at other National Football League cuts for a hard-running halfback. "W.o'll have some athletes around here before we're fin- says Gotta. There isn't that much time left either. Riders now are two games behind the other three EFC teams and can't afford too many more losses if they are to make the Eastern playoffs. Stampeders, second-place team in the West, come to Ot- tawa on the heels of a 39-18 lac- ing Wednesday at the hands of Hamilton Tiger-Cats. GOOD BLOCKEK White is a 6-5, 230-pounder who is said to be an excellent blocker as well as a pass- catcher. He caught 59 passes for 315 yards in eight games for the Giants last season.

A newly ac- quired defensive half, Jim Smith, an import, was cut to make room for White. Kruspe came to Riders in the trade that sent Gene Gaines to Montreal Alouettes. He ran into injuries and was let go. Now the coaches believe he is ready to be of some help to them to the drive for a playoff position. Gotta says there is some doubt that fullback Jim Man- kins will play Saturday. He has a groin injury and missed most workouts this week. If Mankins can't play, then Canadian Greg Thompson Mill go in his spot. Saturday's game starts at 11 Captures Golf Title ANCASTER, Ont. (CP) Mrs. A. B. Darling of the Royal Montreal Golf Club won the Ca- nadian Woman's Senior Golf As- sociation championship Thurs- day at the Hamilton Golf and Country Club with a gross score of 180. a.m. MST and will be shown over the CBC-TV national net- work. Saskatchewan Roughriders, with three top running backs ei- ther on the limp or out ac- tion; plan to throw three quart- erbacks against British Colum- bia Lions in Western Football Conference action tonight. First-string signal caller Ron Lancaster, bothered all season by a sore throwing arm, will get assistance from Don Weiss, the former Winnipeg Blue Bomber, and from the newest Rough- rider, 26-year-old veteran Gary Lane. Lions, seeking a win that would edge them past Calgary S'iampeders and give them sole possession of second place, will count on the pasing of Paul Brothers and rushing of Jim Evenson and A. D. Whitfield. In other WFC action, Edmon- ton Eskimos, four points behind the Lions and in fourth place, travel to Winnipeg for a battle Sunday with the cellar-dwelling Blue Bombers. Edmonton has six points while Calgary and B.C. each have 10 on 5-4 and 5-3 records, respec- tively. Saskatchewan, defending WFC champions, hold the top spot with 14 points on seven wins and two loses.

Imlach, who termed the debut of his Sabres pro- fessed not to be distressed at his team blowing a 4-0 lead. "If we'd won they'd have thought they were the greatest in the he said. "By blowing, they might learn some- thing." The Leafs, stressing youth to their rebuilding program, got goals from rookies Bob Lidding- ton and Rene Robert and also from Jim Harrison and Paul Henderson. Missing from their lineup were regulars Dave Keon, who is unsigned, and Norm Ullman, Brit Selby and Ron Ellis, out with injuries. The Leafs also picked up an- other injury in the game when defenceman Rick Ley was taken to hospital with a rib injury. He later returned to Toronto with the team. SCORES TWO The Blues got standout per- formances from some of their rookies, including George Mor- rison, who scored two goals. Noel Picard and Larry Keenan also scored for St. Louis. Brace Gamble and Jacques played for St. Louis last played half the game for Toronto. Ernie Wakely and Ted Ouimet shared the goal duties for the Blues. The exhibition schedule con- tinues tonight with four games. Chicago Black Hawks meet Bos- ton Bruins at London, Ont., St. Louis plays New York at Kitch- ener, Ont., Buffalo meets Oak- land Seals at Oshawa, Ont. and Minnesota North Stars and Van- couver Canucks, the other new- comer to the NHL, play at Ed- monton. The Boston-Chicago game will be a test for Bruin defenceman Ted Green, who was out of the lineup all last season because of head injuries suffered in an ex- hibition game with St. Louis. Injuries are continuing to plague other NHL teams. St. Louis lost Tim Ecclestone Thursday when he suffered a hairline ankle fracture dining a practice session. The North Stars will be with- out goalie Gump Worsley and defenceman Lou Nanne to their game tonight. Worsley stopped a shot with his big toe while Nanne is suffering from a sore groin. Oakland, training at Oshawa, will be without defenceman Bert Marshall for about two months. He is wearing a east on his left wrist, the result of a bone-fusion operation during the off season.

Computer Couldn't Take Complex Puck Schedule MONTREAL (CP) This season's enlarged National Hockey League schedule re- leased today is so complex that it was too much lor a computer to handle. "I would be happy if a com- puter could be used for the Brian O'Neill, the NHL's director of administra- tion, said sliortly after the NHL board of governors approved the 546-game schedule. "A computer would save many hours of work if it could produce tho sclredule within a reasonable amount of O'Neill saia. "Howeveir, we tried to compu- terize the sthedules for the two previous seasons but in each in- stance, only 40 per cent of the games originally scheduled were unchanged when the final drafts were accepted. "With tho addition of Vancou- ver Canucks and Buffalo Sabres to the NHS this season, a fur- ther 90 games over the last two seasons are required. If a com- puter couldn't help us that much in flie 456-game sched- ules, I couldn't see it being of much value! tlu's time." OPENS OCT. 9 The 25-wreek schedule, which actually has 26 weekends of games, opens Friday, Oct. 9, with Los Angeles Kings visiting Vancouver. The schedule closes Sunday, April 4, with six games. There is an average of 21 games a week, with each team playing 39 games at home and 39 on the road during the sea son. Last year each of the 1L teams played 38 home and 38 away O'Neill said there are two major reasons for the com puter's problems with the schedule. One was the number of blackouts caused by other events at the rin-J and the other was the difficulty of trying to get three games for teams mailing a trip to the West Coast. "We had more than 50 weeks blocked out by the 14 teams in O'Neill said. "We found it impossible to have eacl club visit Vancouver, Los Ange les and Oakland in one trip. As a result, there are several in- stances in the schedule for this season where a team makes a one-game trip to the West Coast." He said a computer would probably be able to draw up a schedule if: time permitted but explained that too much time was lost in re-programming each draft. TOOK SIX MONTHS The 1970-71 schedule was started last February and took six monthsito complete. Each of the 14 clubs plays the other 13 six times at home and three cm the road. "Last season when the teams played four games at home against each of the other teams in their division and three against each team in the other division, it was easier to distrib- ute the gJimes more said O'Neill. "The completely balanced schedule for this sea- son complicated matters." O'Neill's statements appeared in an NHL news release. Besides the increased numbe- of games in the schedule, an- other major change is the re- alignment of two divisions. Chi- cago Black Hawks move to the West Division while Vancouver and Buffalo will be in the East. There are games every night of the week, Saturday being the biggest ru'sjht with 145 games. Next is Sunday with 137 games, followed by Wednesday with 112, Thursday, 71, Tuesday, 42, Friday, 37, and Monday, two. The 24th .annual all-star game is scheduled for Boston, Tues- day, Jan. 10. In addition to Vancouver's opening game Oct. 9 against the Kings, other, home openers are: Contract Extended MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Min- nesota Twims of the American League announced Thursday that the contract of manager Bill Rigney Itias been extended through the U971 baseball sea- son.
