Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 18, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 24 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD Wednesday, September Graham Kelly he finally got to Reuss Head coach a key man Good management produces good football teams. Good management includes a smart general manager, and a good coaching staff. It certainly includes a topnotch head coach. Without one, a team with seemingly excellent talent will get nowhere, and a club with dubious prospects will get everywhere. The coach is often the difference. The head coach is probably more important in professional football than in any other sport. A critical ability of such a man is that of recognizing foot- is that of recognizing football talent that has gone unnoticed by other people. Dave Skrein of Saskatchewan recognized such a player in Tom Campana It was reasoned that since Ohio State doesn't throw very often, the Buckeye state would be barren ground for receivers But Skrein realized that if Woody Hayes at Ohio State ever wanted .to throw the ball, he would certainly want someone good to catch it Tom Campana fit the bill, a big asset for Saskatchewan. A good head coach has to be able to pattern an offence after his personnel and make it work. He has to produce a spirit of un- ity and cohesion that will make his boys want to give it all for the good old home team. He also has to be flexible when it com- es to handling ballplayers, because as George Reed says, "You can't treat players like dogs anymore." When the team wins, it is because of the players. When they lose, the coach is to blame. When I congratulated Ray Jauch on building a fine football team in three years, he demurred: ''We haven't won anything yet. And any success we do have is due to the players." I suggested to Jauch that he had better take some credit now because he'd take all the blame when they lose. Jauch replied, "That's the way it is in football. Always has been The latest example of this is coach John Rauch, late of the not-so-good ship Argonaut. Toronto is an excellent example of poor management. With the revolving door philosophy regarding coaches, the egotistical, and arrogant Argo board of directors has failed to produce a Grey Cup victory since 1952. Frank Clair produced that one and was fired for his ef- forts While in Ottawa, "the as Clair is called, coached tne Rough Riders to three" Grey Cup triumphs in four tries, and was general manager of the club when they won last year. Leo Cahill lasted longer than any Argo coach since Prank Clair. Cahill demonstrated his considerable recruiting talents by signing Joe Theisman, Leon McQuay, Jim Stillwagon, Jim Corrigal, Eric Allen, and Greg Barton. The only dud in the bunch was Barton who didn't want to go on the field when the situation was tight. Cahill put the Argos in the playoffs every year except his last year, and made one Grey Cup appearance. Leo was colorful, quotable, and vulnerable. He made a lot of enemies. When he suffered a horendous string of injuries in 1972. Cahill got the boot. Since then Cahill has gone on to better things with Memphis Southman, after recruiting Larry Czonka, Paul Warfield. and Jim Klick. Good luck, Leo. One of the major villains of the peace in Toronto's tom- foolery is their anything but genial general manager John Barrow. One of the all-time great defensive linemen in CFL history, Barrow moved to the Argo front office when he finished his distinguished career with Hamilton, Toronto's hated rival. It would have taken the diplomatic skills of a Henry Kissinger to convince the Argo players that an opponent they detested over the years would lead them to the land of milk and honey where everything is sweetness and light. Instead of the silken approach to his wary employees. Barrow, in his first meeting with his new charges called them "an overpaid bunch of losers." Since then Barrow has given us some inkling as to why he was a great defensive lineman. With a head like concrete (in- side that is) and a body to match, he must have been formidable indeed. Barrow is disliked by many of his fellow GMs (possible exception Ralph Sazio) mostly because he pulled a few things on them wnen they weren't looking. Now Barrow has pulled a beau- ty on his coach John Rauch by firing him for "failure to adapt to the Canadian style of game." Come on now. John. You just didn't give him any players to work with. The fact of the matter is that Leo Cahill's recruiting made John Barrow look good. Without it. Barrow couldn't lead the Argos anywhere but to oblivion in Lake Ontario. But Barrow is consistent. After faulting a former Super Bowl coach. for not adapting to the Canadian game, the Toronto GM signed the greatest Canadian quarterback to ever play the game. Russ Jackson, to lead the club next year. He couldn't get a new coach for the remainder of the 1974 season. Assistant Joe Moss was so thoroughly disgusted with Barrow, so distrustful of the Argo's intentions, he wouldn't take the job So Jackson is it, with a five-year. per year, no cut contract, to lead the Scullers to glory and Grey Cup greatness Because of his responsibilities as a school principal. Jackson couldn't assume the duties now. But what will the future bring? Will the first Canadian head coach since Annis Stukus find success at the CNE? Who really knows? Russ Jackson has never coached a football team before. He is an en- tirely unknown coaching commodity. Toronto is taking a very big and very expensive gamble. A typical Argonaut move. It took Lou Brock 13 innings Chicago Fire happy, two teams cry blues ASSOCIATED PRESS Even when tired, Lou Brock, St. Louis Cardinals' base-stealing wizard, can out- fox the slyest pitchers in the National League. Brock got the best of pitcher Jerry Reuss and the Pirates Tuesday night for a 2-1 St. Louis victory in 13 innings. That stretched the Cardinals' lead to 2Vz games over Pitt- sburgh in the East pennant race. "We did all we could against Brock, but he said Reuss, who went the distance. "The only foolproof way to stop him is to keep him off the bases." Brock opened the 13th with a single and stole second easily. It extended his single- season record to 109 stolen bases and lifted him into se- cond place on the all-time list with 744, one ahead of Eddie Collins who played from 1906- 1930, mostly with Philadelphia Athletics. Ted Sizemore sacrificed Brock to third and after Reggie Smith was intentional- ly walked, and Ted Simmons' sacrifice fly drove in Brock with the winning run. Brock had tied Collins' mark by stealing second in the 10th inning JUMP WAS GOOD "I was fatigued in the 13th, but I was able to read his (Reuss') body movements and I got a good said Brock. The all-time stolen base leader is Ty Cobb with 892. Meanwhile, in the NL West, first-place Los Angeles and runner-up Cincinnati both lost, leaving the Dodgers games ahead of the Reds. Houston Astros beat the Dodgers 7-0 and San Diego Padres whipped the Reds 6-1. Chicago Cubs downed Phila- delphia Phillies 4-2, Atlanta Braves topped San Francisco Giants 4-3, and the New York Mets at Montreal Expos game was postponed because of wet grounds. The St. Louis victory was its sixth straight and the Pirates' setback was their sixth in a row. Bob Gibson held Pittsburgh to five hits over the first nine innings, and reliever Alan Hrabosky allowed no hits in the remaining four innings. The Pirates scored their only run in the first inning on Al Oliver's homer, but the Cards tied the score in the seventh on a single by Sim- mons, a walk and a double by Joe Torre Swim clinic at Calgary A swimming clinic directed at Canadian Amateur Swimm- ing Association coaches, and presented by the O'Keefe Sports Foundation, is slated for Calgary October 12 and 13.

Lee May drove in three Houston runs with his 24th homer and a sacrifice fly, and Doug Rader hit his 17th homer. San Diego also received strong Bill beating Cincinnati and jolting the Reds' pennant hopes. Grief allowed only six hits. Don Kessinger either drove in or scored all of Chicago's runs. He walked in the first inning and came home on Peter Lacock's double. Then in the fifth, he doubled in two runs and scored on Jose Cardenal's single. Atlanta's Buzz Capra pitch- ed a seven-hitter for his 15th victory and Marty Perez knocked in the winning run with a seventh-inning single. Ivan Murrell drove in the Braves' first three runs with a pair of singles Ron Bryant, the Giants' 24-game winner of 1973, again failed in an attempt for his fourth victory this year. He has lost 15. Palmer has something left in his damaged right arm ASSOCIATED PRESS Jim Palmer found out this season that the Cy Young Award doesn't do anything for a sore arm. Palmer had it all last sea- commercials, his fourth straight 20-victory season and the hardware that told him he the best pitcher in the American League. This season, at best, he will have 10 victories. And the ap- pearances he will remember won't be in film studios, but in the offices of orthopedic sur- geons He spent almost two months on the disabled list with a sore elbow. Palmer helped salvage some of what is left of this season with a seven-hit shutout Tuesday night, pitching Baltimore Orioles to a 4-0 victory over New York Yankees. It was a crucial game for the Orioles since a loss would have dropped them 3Vz games behind the Yankees in the AL East TIGERS BEAT SOX Elsewhere, Detroit Tigers beat Boston Red Sox 5-3, Kan- sas City Royals edged Oakland A's 2-1, Milwaukee Brewers shaded Cleveland In- dians 3-2, Minnesota Twins punished Chicago White Sox 8- 0, and California Angels- Texas Rangers game was rained out. Palmer's victory, his seventh in 19 decisions, moved the Orioles within IVz games of the Yankees. Elrod Hendricks doubled with one out in the seventh, took third on Mark Belanger's bunt single when Doc Medich. 18-14, was slow covering first, and just beat leftfielder Lou Pimella's throw to the plate on Al Bumbry's sacrifice fly for the only run Palmer needed. Paul Blair's three-run homer in the eighth provided a cushion for Palmer. Al Kaline's 2.993rd hit sparked a sixth-inning rally which lifted the Tigers to their victorv over the Red Sox Kaline would like to collect seven more hits before he re- tires. Then he can join the 000-hit club which so far has only 11 members. Leading off the sixth and with the Tigers trailing 3-2, Kaline singled, Bill Freehan singled and Reggie Sanders sacrificed before Leon Roberts knocked in the tying and go-ahead runs with a single. The loss dropped the Red Sox games behind the first-place Yankees in the East. Southern Cross will be back NEWPORT, R.I. (AP) It's difficult to go to a foreign country and take away something that has been there 123 years, Australian Alan Bond said Tuesday after his challenger Southern Cross lost for the fourth straight time in Broncos play inter-squad game tonight Lethbridge Broncos will be on display this evening at eight o'clock at Henderson Ice Centre in their first inter-squad tussle. With a good many berths on the Western Canada Hockey League team up for grabs coach Earl Ingarfield will use tonight's encounter as a testing ground for what could be his final cuts before the Broncos hit the playoff trail. News media members will coach the two clubs while Ingar- tield oversees the workout. Pat Sullivan of the Lethbridge Herald and Steve Fallwell will coach the greens with Brent Seely of CHEC Kjciio and Mike Scott of CFCN TV coaching the whites. the America's Cup yacht rac- ing series. "We will be back, however, and you can be sure we'll be tough. We learned a lot, and we'll learn more The American defender, Courageous, walloped Bond's challenger by seven minutes, 19 seconds in the fourth outing of the best-of-seven series and assured that the top trophy in yachting will remain on its pedestal in the New York Yacht Club. It was the worst defeat handed a foreign challenger since Constellation beat the British entry Sovereign by 15 minutes, 40 seconds in 1964. "It is not easy to say you have been beaten by better the 37-year-old Bond said in an explanation of his effort said to have cost him upwards of million. v "On this occasion I don't necessarily think it's the men. The technology was simply better, and they sailed the defender well. At the outset of the series on Sept. 10. most agreed that the contenders. Courageous and Southern Cross, were about equal in hull speed. Courageous was given a slight advantage in light wind, Southern Cross the nod in heavy winds and choppy seas. As it turned out, Courageous" conditions prevailed in the races. But the Aussies were guilty of serious errors in sailing, particularly in tactics and navigation. CHICAGO (AP) Chicago Fire of the World Football League announced Tuesday it has signed former National Football League running star Leroy Kelly. Kelly, fourth leading ground gainer in NFL history with Cleveland Browns, arriv- ed Monday after he was plac- ed on waivers last week by Oakland Raiders. Kelly was activated and a team spokesman said he might start tonight against Memphis Southmen, seeking their seventh consecutive vic- tory, although a more likely starter was Bob Wyatt, formerly of Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. "I don't look at playing in the World Football League as a said Kelly, an all-pro running back who gain- ed about yards in his NFL career. "What brings me to Chicago? Money, dough. The mean green, my man, is where it is all Kelly said. Meanwhile the financially troubled Houston Texans of the World Football League will move to Shreveport, La. within two weeks if a buy can be found, a WF spokesman said Tuesday. Mickey Cox, sent to the ans by the league to help t club with trades, said: "J main efforts right now are find a buyer for the Texa and I believe I can find one Louisiana in two weeks ai the chances are good the tea will move there by then." Cox denied that the WF has taken over the Housti franchise but said curre owner Steve Arnold faci problems if the club is not so in the near future. A group of investors by William Pease of Ne York City bought controllii interest Tuesday in the WFL Jacksonville Sharks, a tea official said.
