PAGE 32 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N DiMaggio, Sans Pin-Stripes, Returns FRIDAY, MARCH 8, 1968 Joe DiMaggio By MILTON RICHMAN BRADENTON, Fla. UPI) -The number is right and so is the setting. But the color scheme is all wrong. But Joe DiMaggio, who put in on a baseball field, okay. But JoeDiMaggio, who put in all that time in Yankee pinstripes, wearing the kelly green and road gray of the Oakland Athletics, never. , It's hard to picture him in such a get up. Every day Joe DiMaggio puts on the kelly green and road gray uniform of the Oakland Athletics and walks out on the field here. What's more, he says he likes his new job as executive vice president of the Oakland A's. Working for Charlie Finley doesn't frighten him. "I'm glad I'm back," says Joe D. "I had reason. Going with this club was sort of like pioneering a new ten'Kory. When I was approached, I said this is great. I know I'm going to like it." This isn't the first time DiMaggio has come to spring training since retiinng as an ac- tive player. He went to Fort Lauderdale with the Yankees a few times as a special batting instructor. But this is the first time he has ever been with the A's. It's also the first time he has ever had on a kelly green uniform. You might say DiMaggio is roughing it down hej-3. He's a V.P. But he doesn't ask any special favors. Nor does he get any. He has no private office at the ball park because there's only one and that's for the man- ager, Bob Kennedy. He hangs his street clothes in the same simple wooden locker as the players do. His locker is between those of coaches Sherm Lollar and John McNamara. Nor are the surroundings as plush as the Yankees' quarters. Bill McKechnie Field, the, place where the A's train, was built way back in the I920's and is one of the oldest baseball fields in all Florida. But Joe is enthusiastic about the whole thing. The place here, his new job and the youngsters on Oakland's roster. "This kid Ride Monday is shaping up as a heckuva fine ballplayer," says DiMaggio. "He's only 22 and 1 like the way he swings the bat. He bears down all the time. I don'L like using the expression 'lie comes to play.' All of 'em here come to play. This boy knows he's good, but he'll listen when you tell him something." And there's another outfielder, Reggie Jackson, I've been working with. He'll take a little time to learn but he's going to be a good one, too." i I Bill Quimby CITIZEN OUTDOORS WRITER Wildlife Oivnership Contested "Who owns the fish and wildlife on federally owned national parks, forests, Indian reservations, and military posts -- the state in which these lands are found, or the federal government? Up to now, it has been generally believed game and fish have been the property of the state. There is at least one Supreme Court case on record upholding this belief. But, because of a dispute between New Mexico and the National Park Service, there are presently a number of bills in Congress to "confirm states' rights to manage fish and wildlife within their boundaries including on lands owned by the United States. ·;£ . This type of legislation has been endorsed by the National ·"Rifle Association, the National Wildlife Federation and most of fcjheir affiliates, including the Arizona Wildlife Federation, and vinost other sportsman's organizations -- and with good reason. : the Federal government is allowed to set its own regulation's a state -- and even ignore state game laws -- every landowner could 'do the same. The result would be in- *Sfectual game laws, the end of state game management, and j$ver the long haul, reduction of wildlife numbers. ** The New Mexico dispute began Last year when the superin- ^tendent of Carlsbad Caverns National Park informed the state . V^f an intended study of deer to be harvested in the park by S^iembers of the park service staff. The New Mexico Game and fyish Department offered to supply collection permits to the ^3Park Service, but the offer was refused, #£· The Park Service superintendent told New Mexico that "in- f jsmuch as the park is a federal project carried out on public glands we do not consider it necessary ihat our men have collec- rj t 3uig permits issued by your department." Several months later 2-it was learned that 12 deer had been killed by park rangers for '··paunch samples and left to rot in the Park. New Mexico Sued New Mexico instituted suit for injunction to stop unlicensed ·frilling of deer fay the park rangers. Meanwhile, at least nine I bills have been introduced in Congress to reaffirm states' rights sQver resident wildlife. The bills deserve support of every con- hservationist and sportsman. |^ Although Federal regulation, of migratory birds and wildlife *ls not contested, resident wildlife is another matter. If the fed- serai government is allowed to kill game when it pleases, other ^landowners could claim the same right and soon the States' Authority to issue licenses for hunting and fishing would be /eroded away on all but state-owned lands. In Arizona, this would Jinean game on all private property,, national forests, Indian ·jreservations, and Bureau of Land Management lands would be 'administered by at least three different agencies and individual 1 property owners. ·j; I could mean an end to hunting --. especially desert sheep -·hunting--as we knew it in this state. *.t According to the National Wildlife Federation, the states £agree the federal government and other landowners have full 'ilght to restrict or prohibit hunting and fishing on their lands. »$ut the states do not agree the landowners have authority to ^regulate game and fish beyond state laws -- or to defy them as ;ihe National Park Service did in New Mexico. ~ \ Most states -- including Arizona -- have conscientious game *and fish departments and have done a good job of managing ·and conserving their game. To remove their right to do so, 'tyould jeopardize all of the good state game departments have jnanaged to accomplish over the past 50 to 60 years. ?'f Outdoors Odds And Ends * · -- Prospective spring turkey hunters have until March 15 to "file permit applications. Forms for the 1,600 permits are avail;able only at Game and Fish Department offices. Now in its * fourth year, the spring turkey hunt is set during the turkey's 'inatirrg season when gobblers may be called in. Records show v'male birds make up only a small part of turkeys taken on fall 'tiunts and the spring season was designed to crop trophy birds. "~ Only bearded turkeys are legal during the spring hunt. . ,;"·; -- Ed Dodd, cartoonist creator of the Mark Trail comic "strip, has been named National Conservationist of the year by -·the National Wildlife Federation. ."·? -- Heavy snowfall last winter apparently did not affect the "Kaibab North deer herd as previously feared. The same seems to apply to elk above the rim. Antelope losses, known to be , heavy, will not be fully known until surveys take place later. ·· -- Pena Blanca Lake received another planting of trout this ..^eeek -- its third stocking this season. San Carlos Lake is reported to be fair for largemouth bass. AU other Southern Arizona waters are reported to be slow by the Game and Fish ' i)epartment. . TTC Feature Field Headed By Tubac Kid Front-running Tubac Kid will face seven challengers in a 5- furlong dash in tomorrow's feature race at Tucson Turf Club. The fast-breaking Kid may be in at his best distance if apprentice jockey Larry Orona can keep him up in the stretch. The Kid has one place finish in three Tucson starts against the top competition at the Turf Club. Earl O'Gold, Lunkhead and Fly Baby Fly are all expected to make runs at the pace-setter near the finish line. John Cantarini, the meet's leading jockey, will be aboard Lunkhead, who has two place finishes to show for six Tucson starts. Jimmy Wise will challenge on Earl p'Gold while Ramon Figueroa will ride Fly Baby Fly. Cantarini and Wise are currently one-two in the jockey standings, separated by only 10 points, 312-302. Robert Scharnow is a distant Oiird with 26'9 points. PHOTO FINISHES -- the Tucson Quarter Horse Futurity still has 48 eligibles remaining for the April 6 race. The pool contains $25,559.09 and if the remaining eligibles are continued to be backed, the purse could swell to $34,059.09. The Futurity trials are scheduled for March 22 . . .Glenn Trump, general manager of the Turf Club, is attending a two-day meeting of the National Board of Directors of the Horsemen's Benevolent Protective Association in Phoenix . . .The Turf Club will hold an additional stakes race -- Quarter Horse Derby -- on April 7, the closing day of the meet. It will be an added $500 to an estimated gross of §2,500 for 3-year-olds over a 350-yard distance. Hayes Heads Cats 9 Picks Elvin Hayes of Houston, everybody's Ail-American, was a unanimous choice of the University of Arizona basketball team for All-Opponent honors. Hayes scored 28 points for the Cougars when Houston defeated Arizona, 81-76, here in December. Others on the six-man squad were Ken Spain of Houston, Bob Portman of Creighton, Cliff Parsons of Air Force, Merv Jackson of Utah and Pat Frink of Colorado.

Fired-Up Ramblers Ready For Houston By Associated Press If psychology can do it, the underdog Chicago Loyola Ramblers will score the biggest upset of the college basketball season by beating the top-ranked Houston Cougars in the first round of the NCAA championship tournament Saturday night. The Ramblers, 16-8 for the season, go against the unbeaten 28-0 Cougars, led by the Big E, All-American Elvin Hayes, at Salt Lake City. "Our players are all hopped up and we've sold them on the idea of beating Houston," said George Ireland, the Loyola coach who is no stranger to NCAA tournament competition. His Ramblers took the title in 1963 by beating Cincinnati. They were the underdogs then, too. Another unbeaten team, third-ranked St. Bonaventtire, risks its i,2-0 record against Boston College at Kingston, R.I. in one of the other six first-round games Saturday in the NCAA. ~,';?v'" F-KXte(f£'' i ' ¥ T^TP;'''A-£S^'/^V *?' i** *£~4 s*«Pa;M''''*A«ir t *($£*^$'..

We, American Motors, have over 2,300 dealers across the country who can sell more AMX's than we can make. And we will only make about 10,000 this year. In other words, we're faced with a mini-Supply of AMX's and a maxi-Demand for AMX's. In an effort to give everyone an equal chance to buy an AMX, we're resorting to the best solution we can think of. Like the House of Representatives, we will try to send a fair share of AMX's to each state, based on its proportionate population. For example, California, with a larger share of the people, should receive a larger share of AMX's. New Hampshire, with fewer people, won't get quite so many. It should all work out democratically. What Is HT The AMX is a 2-seater. For people who love sports cars,but haven't the time or the money to take care of one. Priced at under $3,300! the AMX offers most of the advantages of a high-priced foreign car. With none of the disadvantages associated ·with owning a high performance sports car. The costly disadvantages of constant maintenance and special engine tune-ups. In short, the AMX gives you the ease of maintenance associated with a family sedan, along with the sheer fim and maneuverability of a sports car costing thousands more. Tk« Enjint On Size Fits *H The AMX body is made of steel.Which, while strong, is also heavy. ; . So we tried an imaginative technique for reducing the AMX's total weight We selected a lightweight engine block that combusts exactly the same power as a heavy block. It worked. The AMX engine cradle will hold any of three different engines: Our 290 cubic inch. Our 343 cubic inch. Our 390 cubic inch. (Zero to 60 in under 7 seconds. One, two, three, four, five, six, sev-that fast.) The incredibly «ncomplex design of the AMX means that, once the 390's broken in.you could roll right onto a race track and be ready to do about 130 mph. In pure stock form-- without special engine modifications. AH three engines are V-8 configuration, and use similar engine blocks. Whicti means you don't add excessive size and weight as you go from the 290 to the 343 to Uie 390. And though there are cars on the road that are faster than the AMX, we hasten to add that beating other drivers isn't the AMX's main appeal. Handiinf. , , In the auto industry "handling" means how fast and how accurately your car responds to your personal driving technique. And how easily. It's the way the car reacts to you as you drive, not the usunl dull split second later. You get out of the lane, pass the car in front and get back into lane in one sure motion. The AMX offers one of the fastest steering wheel ratios of any U.S.-built car. _ This means it turns, corners, follows your direction simultaneously. Tea. The Laymw. · If car advertising never tells you about engineering, it s only because you'd never understand. Ahhhhh...but then again, maybe you would AMX standard equipment includes a 290 cubic inch V-3 with 4-barrel carburetor, rated at 225 HP, a short throw, all-syncromesh 4-on-the-floor, dual exhausts fiberglass belted wide-profile tires, slim-shelled reclining bucket seats, 8,000 RPM tach, padded aircraft-type instrument panel with deep-set controls, energy absorbing steering column, heavy duty springs and shocks, large diameter sway bar, rear traction bars. And more. Yes. Are Two Seats Eneufh? There are78,000,000 cars in this country with enough seating capacity to carry 450,000,000 people. Or one-sevenlh the population of the entire world. However, there are only 200,000,000 people in America. . Leaving 250,000,000 more car seats than people to sit in them. Ask yourself if you really need more than a 2-seater. Your answer may surprise you. AMX Inner Space. . While the AMX isn't much of a place tohold meetings, it will hold a lot of sport things because it is a sports car. Back of the dual bucket seats is a fully-carpeted floor space^ It's not as big as a trunk, but we can verify that it will hold any of the following: 3 good-sized suitcases, a big TV set, 2 scuba-diving outfits, 4 parachutes, 3 electric guitars and amplifiers. Things of that nature. Or, you can leave it empty. And keep the space a space. AMXrMRrlficePiriM. If you need more space, the AMX trunk is you'll find it It's ;i lot bigger than you'd expect a sports car trunk to be. This is possible because we didn't fill the trunk with a big'spare tire. . We gave you The Airless Spare. Whenyouneedit,it"wwwwhhhhooooosshh!' 1 inflates. The Airiess Spare is something every car should have. Because it doesn't take up trunk space with air that you don't need. AMX Outer Spice. You might think that a car offering all of the luggage space of the AMX must be a pretty long car. But the AMX is an smszmgfive inches shorter than the Corvette. And the Corvette is pretty short. Will AMX tarier 14 Be Mire TaloiUt Than AMX Hnmt*r 777? When you buy your AMX, its production number will be set in the dash. While this may mean a lot to collectors in the years ahead, we do want to point out that all AMX's are made with the same attention and quality.
