Section B Soturdoy, February 1, Page B-l El Paso Herald-Post Club to Have Speed, Fielding, Pitching, Says Sommers Diablos May Lack Power Sports—Classified By PETE CICCAREUJ Heard the latest one on the California Angels? Seems that soon after Oakland A's hurler "Catfish" Hunter got himself declared a free man last winter the Angels fully intended on joining the bargaining sessions for the righthander's services. The New York Yankees, eventual winners, bid 3.7 million dollars, the Cleveland Indians and San Diego Padres each offered close to three million and several other major league baseball clubs rang up well over two million big ones on the register. The Angels, meanwhile, didn't even get a chance to talk to "Catfish." He wouldn't accept general manager Harry Dalton's collect call. Much has been said in recent years about Angel owner Gene Autrey's tight pockets. (Rumor has it that the former cowboy star can hear a five dollar bill drop in the snow.) In fact, for the first time in ages, visitors to Ananhcim Stadium this summer will see a solid major league ballclub built from an impressively productive farm system. And the tab for such talent would build two Astrodomes ... at today's prices. "CLUBS LIKE the Dodgers and A's build sound systems in their minor leagues," Dalton contends. "They trade only to fill certain holes and when they do trade, where do you think they get the personnel to offer in exchange? We're very happy that minor league system is now beginning to show dividends."

Why, Mary Jo Peppier, the volleyball queen who was virtually unknown when the prelims in the Women's Superstar competition was held in the Houston Astrodome and wasn't highly regarded when the finals opened at Rotunda, Fla., beat them. And since it's becoming a woman's world in sports, the first baseman in baseball will become known as the first baseperson, the second baseman will be the second baseperson, the third baseman will be the third baseperson, lineman in football will evolute to lincperson an4 the wingman in basketball and hockey will be known as wingperson. Basketball quiz: What is a dead ball rebound? There is such a statistic in basketball. It's a rebound made off a missed free throw. Add sports nickname: The University of Missouri at St. Louis Riverman. The school beat the World Football League to the singular use of nicknames. It'll cost $20 million to dome the Wyoming University football stadium. Story told by John McKay, Southern California coach, at a recent meeting of the Huntsville, Ala., Touchdown Club: "Paul (Bryant) is one of my best friends. He generally comes out to the West Coast for the Desert Classic. He was out one year and he asked me if I'd hold some money for him. He handed me something like $2,200. I didn't want to but I took it. I didn't put it in my bank account because somebody probably would want to know how I got it. I carried the money on me for a year. Paul came back the next year and we were sitting around talking. He said something happened to him on his last trip there. He lost $2,200. My wife looked at me and laughed. I reached in my pocket and pulled out the $2,200. I told Paul I'd lend it to him if he was short." The WAC Selectees TWENTY WESTERN Athletic Conference players were caught in the National Football League draft this week. It was not a bad showing considering the fact the WAC didn't have a big crop of seniors, Nordy Jensen, information director of the league, said. Colorado State led with seven picks. U.T. El Paso didn't score. The two most eligible or draftable Miners, Bronko Belichesky and La Freddie Coleman, were passed over. Bronko, the highly publicised field goal kicker, was not only surprised but miffed at being slighted. He was watched by several pro scouts during the season and a number of them expressed the opinion that he had a good shot at being drafted. He, and for that matter, LaFreddie, still could sign as a free agent. But Bronko, who is operating an auto body shop in El Paso, talks right now about forsaking hopes of playing pro football. He might change his opinion if he gets an offer. New Mexico State's Jim German^, picked in the second round by St. Louis, was assured by Don Coryell, the Cardinal coach, that he'll be the No. 1 backup to both Terry Metcalf and Jim Otis, running backs. Rockey Felker, the Mississippi State quarterback who looked dazzling in the Sun Bowl game, was taken in the llth round by Cincinnati. And then as a defensive back. No surprise there because Rockey, although an outstanding college quarterback, may not be big enough to play in the pros at that position. However, it was a surprise that Chris Kupec of North Carolina didn't go before the 19th round. Taken by Buffalo, he has the qualities a pro quarterback needs. It took a long time for the pros to get to Gary Sheide of Brigham Young, too. He went in the 12th to Cincinnati. It looks as though not many of the NFL clubs were looking for quarterbacks. Concerning Names A.S. DOUGLASS, the retired furniture store owner who died here last week, will not get into the baseball Hall of Fame but his first name of Astyanax made it all the way to Cooperstown, N.Y., and occupies a "special place." in the museum because of its uniqueness. Douglas was in the majors, with the Cincinnati Reds, for a couple of cups of coffee as a catcher. One of his special claims to fame is in naming the Amarillo High School teams the Golden Sandstorms. He was the school's baseball coach and during a workout with the sand flying and the wind blowing, he shouted to his players, "come on, you sandstorms. Come on, you golden sandstorms." He paused, then said: "That's it. Our name will be the Golden Sandstorms." The nickname was adopted by the school and later was shortened to Sandies. Nobody ever got such a fine inspiration out of El Paso's spring sandstorms. There will be no El Paso television of the $100,000 Connors-Laver tennis match to be held tomorrow in Las Vegas, KDBC, the Columbia affiliate here, is tied up with a Cerebral Palsy Telethon. Prediction: Women's intercollegiate competition in basketball will be the next thing to hit the sports scene. Quote from coach Fred Taylor of Ohio State on playing the Indiana basketball team: "You must play them cautiously, liking making love to a porcupine." Only another porcupine would know how to do that. There were two noticeable omissions on the Houston University women's basketball roster turned into sports information director Ted Nance's office: No ages and weights. A woman's prerogative even extends to sports. WEEK'S POEM Said envious college cagemen To U.S. Superstar Mary Jo: "How can we get rich like you "Just on a basketball throw?" considered by many as the game's finest strategist, opens his first camp in Holtville, Calif, on Feb. 26 he'll begin with a possible starting lineup that will include as many as seven graduates of Tom Sommers' mimor league system. Considered as certain members of the 1975 Angel roster are 1974 Ei Paso Diablos Jerry Remy (2b>, Orlando Ramirez (SS), John Balaz (OF) and the devastating Don Kirkwood, a righthanded relief hurler who stood the Mexican League on its year this past winter. "HOPEFULLY the major league situation will remain solidified throughout the entire campaign," Sommers aspires. "In that case the minor league situation will in turn remain stable." With TL manager of the year Dave Garcia having joined Frank Robinson's coaching staff in Cleveland, Sommers has turned the command of the defending Texas League Western Division champion Diablos over to 31-year-old Jim Williams. "I would expect Jim to have a lot of speed, pitching and defense," Sommers offers, "but he won't have much power." JIM WILLIAMS will pilot defending Texas League Western Division champions. IN REVITALIZED Dudley Field, where enthusuastic all- cverything general manager Jim Paul herded over 112,000 customers through the turnstiles a year ago, Williams will find himself involved with a dangerous task, trying to win in Dudley without power is like trying to hop Snake River Canyon ... sans cycle. Put a pay phone on the pitcher's mound and an AT&T sticker on the centerfield wall and you'd swear the swashbuckling Paul was pushing "long distance rates" instead of baseball. "The only way you could get me on the El Paso roster again," one shell-shocked minor loop hurler swore a couple of years back, ''would be posthumously." BUT PAUL, this year joined by new owner Ron DiGiorno, will again heavily saturate his 68-gamc home schedule with promotions and the Angels' AA affiliate promises to create a multitude of excitement. Even if the cozy ballpark has a reputation for sending more hurlers to Big Spring than to the big leagues.

Brigham ~Garpenborg Heads Seven Miners On List of Top '74 World Marks ByDERRYEADS Seven U.T.-E1 Paso track- men and three relay teams made the world list of top amateur marks for 1974, as compiled by "Track and Field News." Chris Garpcnborg, who completes his track eligibility for the Miners this indoor season, tied for third in the 100- yard dash with a 9.2 clocking. His 10.2 mark in the 100-meters put him in a 9th place tie. Hans Hoglund, who has won two NCAA indoor and one NCAA outdoor shot put titles, had the 14th best mark in the world with a 67-9V4. Rudy Reid, a senior, was 18th in the 220-yard dash at 20.6. of the best showings of any freshman in college last year by placing second in the NCAA outdoor mile run to Brigham Young's Paul Cummings and had the 19th best mile time of 3:57.2, which was set indoors. NCAA indoor champion Larry Jessec was 25th in the world list with a 17-4. Arnold Grimes ranked 30th in the world with a triple jump of 53-11%. Grimes was a member of the U.S. track team that traveled to Moscow last spring for a meet against the Russians, Peter Farmer was 37th on the world list in the hammer throw with a 230-1 mark. He won the 1974 NCAA outdoor title. WILSON WAIGWA made one THE MINERS' 440-yard relay team of Errol Stewart, Clifton Addison, Garpenborg and Reid had the seventh fastest time in the world in 39.4. UTEP's distance medley team was seventh in the world at 9:40. Hollie Walton (1:52.8 in the 380), Steve Giddings (48.0 in the 440), Paul Pearson (2:59.5 in the 1380) and Waigwa (3:59.8 in the mile) were members of the team. Banks ran a 880-yard relay team only once in 1974 and it came in llth in the world with a clocking of 1:23.7. Rick Wohluter was rated at TFN's amateur "Athlete of the Year" by being undefeated at 880-yards and 800-meters. Pie beat all the top competitors in the world at those distances. Farmer 2nd in Weight Track Resu| * Waigwa: From last to 3rd Peter Farmer of U.T. El Paso, today was second in the 35-pound weight throw, the last event of the Millrose Games at Madison Square Garden. He threw the weight 63 feet, 8 inches. The winner was Al Paliwoda of New York Athletic Club who had a toss of 64 feet. Ted Bragar of Navy was third. Farmer had one toss of 68 feet, 7 inches but fouled on the throw. He became the fifth Miner to meet NCAA qualifying marks. The others are Greg Joy, Larry Jessce. Wilson Waigwa and Arnold Grimes. It was a typical Wilson Waigwa mile. The U.T.-E1 Paso sophomore made one of his patented sprints from the back of the pack during last night's Wanamaker Mile in the Millrose Games at Madison Square Garden. He just couldn't catch Filbert Bayi. Waigwa, whose mad dash at the NCAA outdoor championship last June at Austin just missed catching Brigham Young's Paul Cummings for the top spot, was in his usual spot at the start of last night's race—at the rear. THE NATIVE of Nairobi, Kenya, started his move with 11 laps to go. While most of the crowd was watching the strategic battle for first between Bayi and Cummings, the quiet Waigwa took over the third spot. "Before Wilson left," said Miner coach Ted Banks, "he said he thought he could run a 4:02 mile. For the first time on the boards this year, it was a super performance." Waigwa was well under the NCAA qualifying mark of 4:06 with a 4:00.2 mile. Bayi won the event in 3:59.3 (a new Meet record) while Cummings was the runnerup in 3:59.8. MARTY L1QUORI of the New York Athletic Club was fourth in 4:07.8. Liquori had been the top mile the early past of the indoor season. Rick Wohluter won the 880- yard run in 1:51.0 and Mel Embree upset Dwight Stones in the high jump at 7-2.

Geiberger, the pride of the Sacramento Valley, shot a par- Despite a second round of 71, Wally Armstrong just missed the cutoff for the last two rounds of the Hawaiian Open. Armstrong had a first round of 75 to give him a 36-hole total of 146, one shot off qualifying. Lee Trevino could not get untracked and matched his opening round of 75 to put him at ISO at the halfway point. Trevino will not compete again until the Jackie Gleason Inverrary Classic Feb. 27- March 2 in Lauderdale, Fla. shattering 66 the first day in the rain. He came back during yesterday's boistrous winds to card a 69, giving him a 135 after 72 holes. Today he may play the Waialae Course in both winds and heavy rains as gale warnings and flood watches have been posted for Oahu by the National Weather Service. First Round In American PALM SPRINGS. Caul I'JPI) - First round scores in the Am.;r:c3n Airlines best-ball goll tournament at Canyon PLAMER DID his splintering of par with a 67 to move into a second place tie at 136 along with Forrest Fezler, Gary Groh and Eddie Pearce. Palmer, who wasn't invited to the press room Thursday, was on center stage after his five-under par 67. Defending Hawaiian champion Jack Nicklaus double-bogied the 10th hole for a 74, which, along with his opening 69, gave him a 142. The cut off score for the final 36 holes was 146, which cut the field to 79. Among the casualties was Lee Trevino, the Hawaiian winner in 1968 who had back-to-back 75s for 150. Among the 79 survivors was the lone amateur in the tour- nament, Hawaii's Al Yamamoto and Japan's three top money winners. Jumbo Ozaki, Isao Aoki and Toni Nakamura. GEIBERGER HAD three birdies to go along with the six he harvested Thursday. He said the highlight of his round was the fact that he hand't had a single bogey in the first two days of play. Palmer said he probably could have shot better golf in the first two days of the tournament had he not missed putts which he felt he should have holed. "However," he said, "I had only one bogey and I missed only one green in two days." 2nd Round In Hawaii (Dodr'i-si James Harris Ni-iath (J.;' = ;-Bobby Bonds y." 2 7 - Er '" c "' s ' Uc!rv Hutbard son ig.'Jis'. :: :? 62-Ror/jie jac^on (A'si Fred Eiletnik off (Raicersi. 31 31. 63-Wili;.; Mays (rellredl-John Unitas (refirerjl, ji 29. i3-Ted S-;emore (Cardinals!
