The win gave the Bombers a four-point lead in the Western Football Conference and left the Als with six points in the east. Etcheverry, who said before the game he had gone as far as he could with quarterback Sonny Wade, called every play and tho old master quarterback nearly produced a victory from the bench. "But don't give me any credit. It all goes to those guys over he said after- wards, pointing to the tired and bruised offensive linemen. Etcheverry gave full marks to an offensive line that opened gaping holes in the Winnipeg defence and allowed running backs Ike Brown and Moses Dens on to run almost at will in the first hall The first time the Als got the football, following a Winnipei NOW OPEN Boys' and Girls' SKATE EXCHANGE SHARPENED SHINED NEW LACES SANITIZED PAIR APPROX.....

Brown's major was the only coring done on the ground by ther club, but it was the hard- utting running attack of the teams that set up tha pass- ig game that produced the big cores. Wade went all the way for fontreal, hitting Peter Dalla ;iva with a seven-yard touch- own pass in the second quar sr and hurling a 41-yarder in n John Eason for a fourth [uarter major.

Exhibiting a finely balanced offensive attack, Jonas used Herron and Ed Williams 33 times to produce 172 yards along the ground and gave .his pass receivers equal time. Larose was the top man with live receptions for 102 yards, but Thorpe, Herron and Paul Williams all had four recep- tions.

The loser was reliever Sparky Lyle, the Yankees' most valuable pitcher with 35 saves. Meanwhile Hank Aaron just goes on and on whille Johnny Bench goes in streaks. "I'd like to hit a few more j home runs this Aaron said Wednesday night after slugging liis 33rd of the season and 672nd of his career in At- lanta Braves' 8-5 victory over Cincinnati Reds.
