MONDAY. AUGUST 31, 1964 THE OTTAWA JOURNAL IS t. I - Flic Sportspicl The Ottawa Journal BBaaaaBa!raBW nai s ar bl Baa ma, w nan -m ' By EDDIE plough Rider's have been calling about for an insurance . quarterback, and over the weekend they got one. - To make room (or him, they had to drop an import, and so George Belu was turned loose. He lost his Job to Jay Roberts, Coach Frank Clair feels they need quarterback insurance, and the question is asked: "What would we ever do if anything happened to Jackson?" We'd lose, that's what we'd do. If the Baltimore Colts lost Johnny Uwui, they'd lose. If the BC lions lost Joe Kapp, they'd lose. If Calgary lost Eagle Day, or if Hamilton, lost Bernie Faloney, they'd lose too. It's comforting to have a respectable' agent in the .wings, but there can be only one No. 1 quarterback. The Riders brought in Bias Melton Edge Jr. Folks Just call him Junior. He tried out with Hamilton this year, and , he looked promising, but they need another quarterback like they need an attack of the black leg.. They have Faloney, Cosentino and Zuger. But Faloney' is THE guy, as he demonstrated the other night Cosentino started, but Faloney won the ball game. , FALONEY ESTABLISHED THE ORDER Cosentino is a big kid, he's a Canadian, he's a good passer and a strong runner. But he's No. 2. He's a good relief pitcher. He has a ood Hamilton following, and there have been those who would tell you he's better than Faloney, given the opportunity. . But Faloney is the canny old mechanic who makes them go, and if he's out of there, they're In trouble. So it is with Jackson. When Ron Lancaster was here, there were the Jackson camps and the Lancaster followers. So any time Riders lost a ball game, Frank Clair had to be wrong. Either he should have left Jackson in there, or he should have put Lancaster in sooner than he did. Neither Clair, nor any other coach, wants to cultivate a situation like that again. So Junior Edge will be No. 2. He won't even dress. He's the extra man. But Clair took a look at him yesterday and he's happy with what he saw. "He throws well.- Clair says, "and he's Intelligent, He picked things up very quickly ... a lot better than many quarterbacks I've had. GIVE HIM SOME STUFF "He'll be exposed to the system at every practice," Clair says, "and he'll have a chance to do a good job. We'll takf him West with us. and I'll give him a limited amount of our material. Even if I just give him the passing . . . hell be able to hand off the ball for the running. So if anything happens, we'll just have to give up the option plays." But how much Insurance, really, is a player who can't get into a game for weeks, to that if an emergency does arise, he has to go in cold? Not a whole lot. Clair admits that But if the Riders were to be In a position to take it all, and If they needed one game, or a couple. Edge might be able to do it. "There's a chance," Clair says. "An outside chance . . . but a chance. I really don't know what 0B could do ia there, but be can't throw as well as this boy. and we need CB on defence." It's rare when Gair uses anything approaching t term of endearment but O'B (Ohbee) is the handle the player use for 0Billovich. And Clair referred to him as O'B, which may be Interpreted as a sign of Spring, or something. At any rate, Clair wasn't satisfied O'B could do the job if anything happens to Jackson, and he wasn't satisfied Mike Mosolf could do it either- .., f And Edge has had some defensive experience. In 1961. at the University of North Carolina, he led his team in pass interceptions with seven. ROBERTS COULD BE OUTSTANDING The departure of Belu does not come as a jolt, either; (though he was an honest ball player, a sincere athlete who gave his best Robert i bigger though, and obviously the coaches have decided he can do things better. He appears to be an exceptional receiver in workouts. They've thrown to him only one in a game, and be made that catch and then made good move right after K. If they threw more to him, he could be a standout Then there's the Peter Quirm story. Here's an Ottawa boy, a Queen's grsd, in his sophomore year with the Riders, and he decided to quit But there's nothing sinister or mysterious about the move. V. He hasn't been used much. He wasn't particularly enchanted about that With Larry DeCraw going on strength, a Canadian waa going to be put on waivers. Or traded or sold. Quinn didn't want to go on waivers, or be traded or oUL ;' v WANTS HIS JOB ''., : : He won't play football anywhere but In Ottawa, He has a good job with the personnel Energy of Canada, and he wants to keep that job. ' He doesn't see any future for him In, football the way he's going. His future is in his job. -. , He's not long married, and undoubtedly there are a thousand place he could put use. But rather than retard his progress at his full-time job, or jeopardize hi position in any way, without any real foot-ball rewards, ha decided to pack it in. You have to admire him -needed, he'll probably be available. But as It stands, bell probably remain suspended. ' If he'd gone on waiver, bav been able to play for the anywhere else. So be took the or Tra not bitter about anything." he said. "I think I can play In this league but f m not coaches know more about it than - "But I dktnt think It was self, to continue the way I wa sight n football." - If he'd been playing, obviously, he would have placed a different value on his rootball career. He didn't arrive at his decision tightly. We would say the Atomic Peter Quinn. : i Dave Ellis Sets Record in 880 WINNIPEG (CP) Janet Maddin, a bundle of energy in a trim white uniform that Iden tified Winnipeg's Flying M Club, sprinted to clear-cut individual honors at the Canadan age- class track and field ehampion- i ship here during the weekend.

"He waa Just discouraged and figured he'd be traded. There waa no point hi putting hlrry on waiver since he wouldn't report anywhere else." And so Peter is gone but not forgotten. ' The coaching staff think highly' of th Ottawa boy and mayb sometime in th future hell be back to giv it another whirl Th decision on Belu wa another hard one for Clair to make. .

(UP1) Bobby Nichols coldn't best par Sunday, but his two over 72 waa good enough to stand off Arnold Palmer's shaky challenge and win the 135.000 first prize in the Carling Open with a 72-hole total of 278, two under par. . Nichols opened Sunday's round four under par two strokes ahead of Palmer, and the perennial tourney Winner, Palmer, couldn't come closer than . one stroke. Pslmer finished second with 279. EAGLE ON 12th Palmer turned in one of the outstanding holes of the ' tournament with an eagle three on the 366-yard 12th hole, a par five, reaching the green against the wind with two tremendous wood shots and dropping a 35-foot putt The hole temporarily moved Palmer into a tie with Nichols, one under par, but when Nichols, playing in the following threesome, reached the same green," he dropped birdie putt to go two under and he held on with' cautious . play the rest of the way. Palmer lost his best chance when be banged hia second into a trap on the 14th to set up a bogey and 1 leave him even with par. He could gain only one stroke thereafter, when his. second shot hit the pin on the 439-yard 18th hole and bounced six feet away. ' He canned the putt for a bird and a 71 total on the last round.

But the man they, wanted had to be able to do ' . something else as well. ; Edge, a talented passer. Is , ; also a fine defensive half, ahd . he's a punter and place- i i kicker as well ao he's a ' , handy fellow to have around. ' He waa Impressive with Hsmilton but with Bernie ,' Faloney, Frank , Cosentino snd Joe Zuger around, they . weren't hurting for quarter- ' ' back. , So for Tuesday when the . Argonaut' check Into town Clair will have a coupra of newcomers in the lineup; 'i DeGraw will go in to take . Quinn's spot, and 'Chuck Killet will go at left lfalf. t , There i also possibility . of Kay Vaughan dressing for this on although Clair says . , ha will wait until today to ; decide. If Vaughan play Mrv Bevan win aft it out , S Shaky Challenge he sank hy) short winning . putt conceded be didn't '' attack the course on his last round. "I just tried to hit the greens and make pars to hold the lead." he said, "because with guys like Pslmer and (Gary) Player after you, you can't let up. l knew 1 had to make four on the last hole, so I didn't go for s birdie. I just wanted to lay up there, so I could be sure to sink the second one. I The victory, only the fifth in Nichols' career, paid off with the fifth biggest single prize ever in pro golf, from the richest total jackpot. $200,000. It was the second tournament triumph this .year for Nichols. 28. since he earlier won the PGA title. The payday boosted Nichols' earnings this year to $72,087 26. among the top five money winners in pro golf this year. . Palmer's second prize money of $17,000 boosted his earnings for the year to $110,743.37. ' tops on the tour. Gary Player of South Africa, one of 48 "foreign" entrants in the. world event and one of 18 "foreigners' to survive the second round ,:out scored a 70 to grab third money of $8,500 wi;n a total of 281. HOGAN 4th Veteran Ben Hogan. 52. winner of the National Open in 1951 on the same Oakland Hills course, which played out a par of 70 over 6.907 yards for this event, had one of the day'a two . best rounds, a 68, to finish tied for fourth with Pete Brown at 282 and win $6,850. each. Hogan's 72-hole score was only one score more than his open victory tally. Toronto's Al Balding and Alvi Thompson the only two of the eight Canadian entrants to survive Fridsy's cutoff wound up with 297 snd 302, respectively.
