Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 29, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta ROYAL WINTER FAIR TOUR transportation, Accommodation, admission to Fair, SlghtSMlng, scat to Royal Horn anon. Depart Calgary Nov. 6 Return Nov. 17 t.OO return ART WILLIAMS TRAVEL CENTRE VILLAGE MALL PHONE 328-3201 The Lethbridge Herald Third Section Saturday, September 29, 1973 Pat Sullivan There is no sense hiding the fact that anytime the Leo Cahill coached Toronto Argonauts got their butts beat off it brought me a great deal of pleasure. It was Cahill who conned the Toronto ownership into open- ing the purse strings in an attempt to buy a Grey Cup, some three years back. The money didn't run, nor did the talent. So what happened? The people of Hogtown are still waiting for the Grey Cup. There is one difference, however, Cahill isn't making the people wait anymore, the .Argo patience with the out- spoken Cahill ran out. Cahill, working alongside "Goodbye Argos" is not a good buy. You can buy it off the shelf of book stores for if all you want to read about is one head coach from the Canadian Football League who feels he was let go without due reason. For my money Argos" is a application for a job in football for Cahill. If every coach who was dis- missed from his job wrote a book out of a simple case of sour grapes the bookstands would be flooded with just such literary ac- complishments. If Cahill couldn't coach any better than he could write he lasted longer than he should have. If Cahill fails to find a job in football he could always land a job writing excuses for coaches who are let go and don't know what to say. As far as Cahill is concerned he got a raw deal. He was fired because of Leon McQuay, John Barrow and owner John Bassett. They all had a hand in his demise. It had very little to do with the fact that Cahill did not get the best out of his players. Losing the Grey Cup in 1972 and finishing last in 1972 was not his fault. It sounds a little harsh to take the man apart in this manner. But he was given the chance to coach a great foot- ball club and fell flat on his face. It's as simple as that. You can't do a a year job and get paid That's the way it is in professional sports If you are in the market for a good entertaining book stop in at the Firestone Stores. I received a copy of the book "27 Days in September" this week and it is a dandy. We all know that the Canada-Russia hockey series Scott Young, has written a book. I guess when you are an unemployed football coach you have lots of time for writing a book. Anyway, the book is called "Goodbye Argos" by Leo Cahill with Scott Young. I have only read one other sports book I enjoyed less. It was by Young entitled "Face Off." Those of you who read it will remember Young took the game of hockey out of the arena and put it into the bedroom. Young should stick to writing books for children and forget the world of grown-ups. However, that's another story. K A head coach in football, not unlike a manager in baseball, doesn't wear a number, he wears a bulls-eye. He is a target. The fact that he should get isolation pay has long been argued. But another fact remains, you can't send to the bullpen for a new team. Someone has to go So the manager has the can tied to his backside and the players adjust. Cahill's Argos, on paper, have been the pride of the Canadian Football League for the past three years. But all they have to show for it is an 11-3 ledger one year under his guidance LETHBRIDGE OFFICE FURNITURE LTD. Lower 7th Strttt Shopping Mall Lcthbrldgt, (403) 328-7411 ADDING MACHINES...

Cou- 3-0 with a 26-2 triumph. Rams keep record intact Cahill knew this when he took the job. Now he contends he will show the Argo's upper echelon how wrong they were to fire him. Cahill, while not expounding on it to any great length, in- dicated there may be a second Toronto franchise in the CFL and he will be named head coach. He may fool the owners of a new club, should it ever come into being, but how can he pull the wool over the eyes of fans who flocked out to see his magic act? The one that was to get the people of Toronto a Grey Cup That wasn't a barbershop quartet that was singing his departure all last year.

By LLOYD YAMAGISHI Herald Sports Writer "I thought the game was a little boring with all the infractions Dean (Dahl) and I are poor coaches on the referees have exceptional eyes These were the words of Lethbridge Collegiate In- stitute Rams' coach, Jim Whitelaw, who guided his chargers to a hard-fought 23-1 victory over the Catholic Central Cougars in a penalty- filled Southern Alberta High School Football League game Friday night Cougars' coach Dahl along with some 1000 spectators would readily agree with Whitelaw as they watched a 60-mmute football game take over two hours to play at Henderson Stadium last night. The ww infractions called seemed to annoy the fans at times and obviously bothered the players as they resorted to dirty tactics to release their frustrations. Kicking and cheap shots were visible throughout the second half of play and at times it seemed as though the officials were losing control of the players Whitelaw felt it was a shame that the players had to use rough-house tactics since the football in itself is a rough and tough contact sport Dahl had similar views and put it this way, "It's a shame the boys have to resort to dir- ty tactics like kicking and punching It would be nice to see a clean, fast game with good officiating and whether or not one wins or loses wouldn't really matter." When the officials allowed the players to play the game, the Cougars outrushed the un- defeated Rams 193 to 119 yards but were ouppassed by 30 yards. The Rams hit for 43 yards in live aerial attempts while the Cougars completed one of nine passes for 13 yards. Mark Baldry led the Rams' offensive attack with 70 yards on 11 carries, while quarter- back Randy Stevens followed with 28 yards on four tries. The Cougars' dfence held the Rams' powerful backfielder Rick Collier to 22 yards on six carried but couldn't stop him from scor- ing all three Rams' touchdowns The Rams' got their other five points on three converts by Stevens and a safety touch given up by the Cougars. On the other hand, the Cougars failed to hit pay-dirt but received outstanding per- tormances from their backfielders. Fullback Steve Devcic led the march with 71 yards in 14 attempts while halfbacks Dave Jackson and Guy Pomahac added 69 and 49 yards respectively. Pomahac also earned another 75 yards on three kick-off returns and booted a single for the Cougars' only point. Meanwhile the Rams re- main undefeated after three starts and lead the western conference The Cougars are still tied with the idle Winston Churchill Bulldogs with one win each but the Bulldogs have a chance to break the deadlock tonight. The Bulldogs, who rested with a 1-1 record last night, will hit the turf at 8 p.m. against the Medicine Hat Crescent Heights at Henderson Stadium ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Nolan Ryan holds the major league season record for strikeouts, and the California Angels' right hander accepts the acclaim because he's a 20- game winner. Make that 21 games and 383 strikeouts for the 26-year-old flamethrower, who struggled to find home plate in four seasons with New York Mets before coming to the Angels last year. Ryan set the record Thurs- day night, fanning 16 Minnesota Twins in an 11- inning, 5-4 American League baseball triumph. "After winning 20, it's the strikeout record I wanted. It wouldn't mean anything to set the record and be 19-18. I'm not a good pitcher unless I win 20 At one point in the season, although he had pitched two no-hitters and a one-hitter Ryan's record was under 500. He won his last seven starts to finish 21-16. Ryan, who blew three fast- balls by Rich Reese, the last Twin he faced, for No. 383, had tied Sandy Koufax's 1965 record of 382 when he struck out Steve Brye with a fast bail 10 batters earlier, back in the eighth inning. Striking out the American League's leading hitter, Rod Carew, in the second inning broke Koufax's consecutive season mark of 699 set in 1965- 66 Ryan, who led the majors last year with 329 when he had a 1916 record, upped his record to 712 Thursday night. SUNDAY WAS NEXT Ryan was to pitch in the last game of the season Sunday if he hadn't broken the record "I feel it is he said of his strikeouts. "I'll go ahead and be a spectator for the next few games Ryan wants the American League Cy Young award, but he admitted there are other worthy candidates par- ticularly, Jim Hunter of Oakland and Jim Palmer of Baltimore. "I think I have as good cre- dentials as anybody running for Ryan said. "The only thing you can hold against me is my winning percentage. Palmer and Hunter definitely had outstanding years.' General manager Harry Dalton said he'll be aggressive on the trading market this winter. Would he trade Ryan?
