The long-haired Lawrence had muffed earlier opportunities to become Edmonton's first-string quarterback. But he got another chance after the Alouettes inter- cepted four of Lemmerman's 20 pass attempts.

Its imag" polished somehwat by the showing made by three rookies al the National Hockey League training camp of To- ronto -.aple Leafs. John Grisdalc of Michigan Tech, Murray Heallcy, of the University of Wisconsin and Brian St. John of the University of Toronto are the players who have impressed Leaf officials. Heallcy and SI. John have been assigned to Tulsa Oilers of Iho Central League for season- ing, but Grisdale remains as a strong candidate for the big team. Even so, Jim Gregory, Leafs' genera] manager, has some re- servations. "For the past three or four years we have all been scouting college teams. It doesn't mailer me where a player comes Tom" he said Wednesday. "But my beef is with the rules. They make it difficult for a college player to adapt to the professional Gregory added.

College hockey forbids body- checking in the opponents' zone and Ibis is one of ihe rules that gripes Gregory. NHL teams used lo prefer rookies who had previous expo- sure (o hard hitting hockey in junior A ranks. But the scene is changing and Grisdale provides a good exam- ple of a player who enjoys bod- ily contact, despite an appren- ticeship in college ranks. "f don't see the point of the (college) Grisdale said, but I don't tliink they hurt any- body "You're not supposed lo nil, but that doesn't mean that you don't use your body. What you do is ride ihe player off. What the rule really meant was that you couldn't catch a guy behind the net with his head down and lay into him."
