On the left, a U.S. navy...single-engine plane after he was forced to ditch today...harbor. Two young girls and another passenger were....a French trawler, is hauled ashore by breeches buoy fro...England Sunday...” verso: an article discussing a game played by the Calgary Stampeders against the Regina Roughriders. The writes: “Sandhogs Stampeder Blitz... Keys 25-0 Win. By Gorde Hunter [Herald Sports Editor]. A brilliant defence that allowed the Regina Rough-riders a total offence of a mere 32 years, powered the Calgary Stampeders to a one-sided 25-0 win over the Roughriders Saturday afternoon at McMahon in the first game of the Western Conference total point semi-final series. With a crowd of 17,780 sitting in bright sunshine, the Cowboys completely dominated proceedings from flag to finish as the sandhogs made a shambles of the Regina attack by putting a tremendous rush on quarterback Bob Ptacek, a thorn in Stampeder sides all season. He managed to complete but five passes in 17 attempts for 47 yeard and the ground attack had less success. Meanwhile EAgle Day guided the Stamps to three touch-downs, a field goal, two converts and a pair of singles to add up to the 25 points they will take into tonights’s second game...”
