OUT AND INTO TROUBLE fields-makes the hit with Wayne Giardino ready to assist (Journal Photo by The Canadian Press) 19,225 see squad game Coaches, "fans learn little new By GERALD REDMOND Squad gamesare deemed a necessary part of football training camps but they seldom show coaches anything they didn't know before. For the record the Whites beat the Blacks 38-29 last night with Rick Cassata doing some quarterback duty for both sides. He looked eVery . bit tiie number one quarterback and a better one than' last year. . And that was something the 2, coaches knew all along.-' Frank DiMaggio showed a strong arm as well as poise' for a rookie quarterback and looked to have the edge for, the backup job over Indiana's Ted McNulty. That didn't surprise the, coaches either. GOOD TURNOUT There were the Marshall -brothers, Ed and Herbert, a hard-running back in Don Aleksiewicz, a flock of young Canadians with promise and more interior linemen than . anyone of the 19,225 fans at Lansdowne Park could prop-- erly keep track of. So while neither the coaches nor-' the fans learned all that much, the turnout did provide some much needed revenue for the Eastern Ontario Children's Hospital and the Ottawa Boys Club. And it pro-. vided some interesting foot-- ball and it marked the first and last appearance of some of the hopefuls. Today Gotta plans to drop some of the ones who obviously jvon't do, which will likely be about 10. The others he'll keep around for a- while yet and he claims Jhe next couple of workouts should tell him more than the squad game. "We learn some things from a squad game but it's the exhibitions that . really count.'fc Gotta said. "We've got a great exhibition schedule. We get Winnipeg and Edmonton here and they are both tough teams. Then we get two on the road. "I don't know how Frank (Clair) arranged it but I couldn't be happier with it." Gotta was happy too with what he did see last night. For one thing no one was seriously hurt.. 'We were using sef defences and with the team split the way it was, the offence , had a chance to move the ball. "But that's what we wanted to do and we did. When we get all our regular people in the spots we want them, we feel we'll be strong again defensively. ' j "What concerns-us most is moving the ball. If we couldn't move it against the defences we were using in the squad' game then I'd say we're in trouble. MANY MISSING "We put points on the, board. That was what we set out to do and we did it well considering we had so marly new people in skilled positions . . . quarterback, running back spots." Four regulars were lost to the all-star game, Wayne Smith, Gerry Campbell, Gerry Organ and Rod Woodward. Dan Dver sat out with an in- jured back, Al Marcelin nursed his injured knee on the sidelines and Jim Evenson wasn't dressed to give him extra time for his legs to come around -after pulling a hamstring muscle on the weekend. . Rhome Nixon was another who didn't dress but the only place he hurts is in his contract. Nixon, one of 14 unsigned veterans, decided hot to play because he didn't want ,to risk injury. , "This happens every year," Gotta said. "Some guy decides to sit out ant it's more annoying than worrisome. I don't know the way they think but I know this ... on this club the tail won't wag the dog. "We have 70 guys around and if someone sits out we'll just start looking for a replacement" With fine looking receivers in abundance and with the possibility of Riders eventual-' " ly landing former Argo Tony Moro as a tight end, Nixon's position isn't getting stronger. ED MARSHALL STARS Ed Marshall a rangy receiver from Cameron State, impressed with his pass catching for the White club. He latched on to four for 147 yards, two of them touchdowns. Holdover Tom Pullen caught three for the Whites including one for a major and Hugh Oldham was in good form for the Black club with four catches for 76 yards including two for touchdowns. Cassata got the White club out in front in 'a hurry with first quarter touchdown strikes to Ed Marshall and . Pullen. Then he retired to Jet (y McNulty run the show and McNulty was in f of the other White points. John Heim scored three sec- f ond half touchdowns, all from close in and McNulty threw , his only TD pass of the night late in the fourth to Ed Marshall who made a great catch over brother Herbert. DiMaggio' threw the two touchdown passes to Oldham and fired one to Canadian rookie Vera Plummer. Line-backerManny Sullivan scored the other Black major on a 71-yard romp after a fumble by Don Aleksiewicz. Moe Racine booted a field goal and added . a couple of converts, . DiMaggio completed 10 of 25 attempts for 163 yards but be . had three intercepted and on paper be bad the strongest offensive club. McNulty. hit on 11 of 20 for 176 yards but he too had three intercepted, f Cassata was good onlTght of 10 for 144 yards and one intercepted and those figures were for his efforts for both - teams. v D i c k Adams and -John Kruspe were the main hawks' with each picking off two interceptions. Of the runners young Willie Spencer carried seven times . for the Blacks for 42 yards but fumbled three times. DiMaggio picked up 24 yards in f i v e t r i p s , Alan A-train . Thompson 18 in three and Hugh Oldham 19 in two on reverses. .Bob Miranda logged 32 yards in three carries for the Whites and Aleksiewicz 49 in 11. Cassata picked up 33 yards in four carries. Martin leaves Argonauts TORONTO (CP) Linebacker Pete Martin left training camp of Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League Tuesday for his home in nearby Mississauga indicating he may retire after eight seasons with the club. John Tanner, a defensive end who joined Argoj midway through last season, also de- . parted and two other absentees Tuesday were Bill Ross, a rookie defensive end, ' Argos sixth-round draft choice from the University of Waterloo, and Bob Stcincr a defensive lineman obtained last week from Edmonton, who previously played seven years with Hamilton Tiger-Cats. ' . "Ross has just disappeared," said head coach John Rauch. Steincr was given some time off, but was supposed to report back Tuesday, Rauch said.

Moro, who played out his option with Toronto Argonauts last season, is a free agent, although he was traded tb Edmonton Eskimos for rookie defensive back Wayne Allison. - But Moro has declined to report to Edmonton for business reasons. "We're going to help him," said John Agro, legal representative for the CFLPA. He said the players' association wanted to make sure there is no blacklisting. . "President George Reed has asked me to write the commissioner about Moro's status .and I have done so," Agro said. KUDRYK INJURED HAMILTON (CP) - Tackle Peter Kudryk of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats was injured Sunday when his car hit a lamp post while he was returning home from a team practice. Kudryk, 24, was reported in good condition in hospital with possible back injuries and multiple cuts. MONTREAL (CP) - Johnny Rodgers, last year's Heis-man Trophy winner, caught a 27-yard touchdown pass from incumbent quarterback Sonny Wade Tuesday night as the Green team beat the White 14-0 in Montreal Aloucttes' annual intra-squad game. The other touchdown by the 'Greens came when defensive halfback Phil Price from Iowa State intercepted a pass by rookie quarterback Craig Curry and ran 44 yards for the -score. . The two touchdowns were scored in the first quarter with Don Sweet converting both. 2 Head coach Marv Levy used the game as a controlled-scrimmage and said following the contest he was satisfied, but "you don't really expect anything great from a contest like this." The game, played before an estimated 10,000 fans was part of a football-soccer doublchca-dcr with Montreal Olympiqucs entertaining Toronto Metros in a North American Soccer League game immediately following the football exhibition.

When some of the fans started calling for Rodgers to play late in the game, they were disappointed.
