Two Tied for Canada Lead EDMONTON,- Alta. (UPD-- If Elroy Hirsch has his way, Elroy Hirsch will Doug Sanders and Bob Goetz, come out of retirement and play football for the Rams ·this fall. ·-When he landed a $26,000 year job with Union Oil, as TV emcee and director of sports clinics for kids, Elroy's football career ostensibly was finished After all, his most recent paycheck with the Rams had been .wound half that amount. ·i 1 .- Besides, Hirsch figured a 34- year old man had to stop playing these kid games sometime. He was. perfectly happy with his forced retirement. But this guy still has the enthusiasm of a kid. Last week, he a d m i t t e d he's . '"Shoulder Pad Fever." "I don't know what it is," he told me. "But the fall is about here, and I miss being with the Rams already." '-. How about his ironclad con. tract with Union Oil? Hirsch slipped lor a moment: "Oh, I think that could be worked out," he blurted. His wife Ruth is against it. . "Do something to talk him out - of it," she whispered. "I don't want him playing any more football." ; Meanwhile, there are reports . t h a t Union Oil might cori' . descend to give Elroy a leave of absence, feeling it would be an outstanding stroke of public re.' lations. Several months ago, the Rams asked his sponsors if he could be spared from the job, ' even as a part-time end coach. They said no, he couldn't. * * * : BILL BKENNAX, account executive o£ the Young Rubicam advertising agency which .packages Elroy's TV show, told 'me: "I don't think there's any- thin; gets when he sees the players being introduced before a game. After all, he's been in it for 20 years. The withdrawal is a little . tough. , It's just like telling your friend on the paper . . . what's his name, Hollingskittle? . . . that he has to stay away from all free-loading press parties. It's tough." Brennan added that Hirsch .' could not be spared from his job. "\Ve have big plans for this sho\v," he said. "We're moving over to CBS In October and hope to increase our audience. And as far as 'I kno\v, Elroy has never even discussed playing football with Keese Taylor (bossman of Union Oil). "He's got a job with a future with us. So I'll put it this way. Hirsch hasn't asked for a leave to the talk. Sure. Hirsch a yen to play ball again of absence, and we can't grant him one." Evidently Hirsch has kept his yearnings to return to the Rams to himself. Or, maybe in sounder moments, he has figured out he would be much smarter to, stick with his current job--much as Ole Kell .and the Rams would love to have him back. * "WHAT'S * * HAPPENED to Harvey Kno.x?" I asked Paul Caruso Thursday. "Darned if I know," Caruso replied. "Haven't heard from him in weeks. He might be out of town. Since we threw that press party at the Town House some weeks ago, heard from him." Knox hhd r e v e a l e d lie would continue to champion Ronnie's footuull career, even though ho and his stepson had split up. However, Ronnie wrecked the whole deal by retusinp; to report to the Chicago Bears. "Harvey insisted on paying for that Town House party," Caruso recalls. "But I told him I wanted to pay for half. About three weeks ago, I sent him a bill for his half--and I haven't heard a word from him. "He must be out of town . . . oh, he must be!"
