By JOHN EVANS UPI Sports Writer Willie Mays is up to his old tricks again. The "say hey kid," who bat ted in the .420's early last season, picked up where he left oil. Mays stroked two long home runs Friday while leading the San Francisco Giants to a 6-4 victory over:the Cleveland Indians, f ; . Both blasts went over the 400-foot mark and came off top ^Cleveland hurler Luis Tiant. Juan Marichal, who went seven long innings; scattered seven hits while striking out seven In dians. Al Luplow paced the Indians with three singles. Sammy Ellis was the first Cincinnati pitcher to go the full nine-inning route, as he blanked the Chicago White Sox 4-0 while surrendering just two hits. Chicago's Gary Peters, ace lefthander of the White Sox, gave up home runs to Deron Johnson and -Tommy Harper. Cong Homers Tony Conigliaro a most con fident second-year man with the Boston Red Sox, paced the Beantowners to a 5-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs. "Con- ig," who records pop records during the off season, blasted a two-run home run in the ninth inning to even the score 4-4 and catcher Bob Tillman was forced home with a walk to tally the winning run. Two home'runs by Don Dem eter led the Detroit Tigers to a 10-1 shelling of the Washington Senators. Al Kaline and Dick McAuliffe also connected - for round-circuit blows. The Baltimore Orioles, picking up a pair of runs in the eighth inning off relief specialist Pete Ramos, took a 4-3 decision from the New York Yankees. The Yankees, however, were more concerned with another loss. Star outfielder Mickey 'Mantle suffered a pulled leg muscle in the second inning and was forced to leave the game. Mantle, though, said the injury was not serious and is expected to play against Washington Sena tors Saturday night in Puerto Rice. Belinsky Sparkles Bd Belinsky, who was traded to 'Philadelphia from the Los Angeles Angels during the off season turned in a fine performance over six innings as the Phillies topped the Milwaukee Braves 3-2. Though Belinsky gave up seven hits and both Milwaukee runs, he struck out eight Braves during his workout. Dick Groat's single and triple led the world champion St Louis Cardinals to a 4-2 over the colorful New York Mets. Ray Washburn, attempting a comeback, worked four innings, gave up four hits, one run while striking out six. Tracy Stallard, who was traded to the .Cards by 'the Mets 4his winter, blanked New York for the! next four " sessions. | Gene Freese's three-run homer in the' eighth inning powered the Pittsburgh 'Pirates to a 3-2 decision over the Sandy Koufax-less Los Angeles Dodgers.

Red Sox Hope To Finish In First Division By SCOTT BAILLIE UPI Sports Writer SCOTTSDALE Ariz. (UPI)— Billy Herman, a nice guy whose only previous shot at major league managing ended'in a dead heat for last place at Pittsburgh 18 years ago, tries again this season with the Boston Red Sox. I The Sox named Herman as their fifth pilot in seven seasons last fall when he replaced Johnny Pesky, who had brought the team in eighth./ A veteran coach with the club, Herman watched it wind up in the second division five straight times and has said that he wants to root out a defeatist complex. , ... • ..; 'We've got; better players than most people think," Herman says. "But a team can come by a second division attitude pretty easily after being down there four or five times in a row. We plan to keep talking and build up confidence." Established Pros •He basically has a group of established pros to work with, aside from outfielder Tony Conigliaro, who smashed 24 home runs last year and batted .290 as a raw rookie from the New York-Pennsylvania League. Gone, in the Sox' lone major deal of-the winter, is first baseman Dick Stuart. He was trad ed to the Philadelphia Phillies for pitcher Dennis Bennett. The Red Sox thus gave up a power hitter who drove in 114 runs last year for a lefthander who has been bothered by arm trouble. Bennett had a 12-14 mark with the contending Phils in 1964. Right now, Herman thinks in terms of a starting outfield that would put Carl Yastrzemski back in left, Gary Geiger in center and the very confident Conigliaro in right. Aside from first base—where Tony Horton and Bob Guindoh are getting a close look as Stuart's successor—the infield is a proven combination. Bressoud At Short Eddie Bressoud, who had his finest major league season last year when he .batted .293 and raised his fielding average by 16 points, is back at shortstop. •Frank Malzohe, entering his ninth season as a Red Sox regular, will start at third. Second base is surrounded by prospects but the call probably win go to the veteran Felix Mantilla, who hit a surprising 30 home runs last year. '•',' In addition to southpaw Bennett, the pitching staff features such righthanded starters as Bill Monbouquette had a good finish -after a poor start last year. Dave Morehead owns one of the finest curves in the league and, Herman looks to the pitcher to Improve, his control this time. ' Th» real star of the, hurling staff is enormous Dick Radatz, the game's ace relief specialist. Radatz returns from a 1964 season in which he posted a 16-9 mark, 25 saves and a 2.29 earned run average with his awesome fast ball. He "vrobabIy ; i»ill be joined in the bullpen |iy' t Jack La ma be (9 -13), who' was used as a starter last year but did not show the form he enjoyed as a middleman in 1963. Veterans Bob TiUraart and Russ Nixon are expected to split the catching. 155 ON TRIAL—'Hie 155 University of California students on trial In Berkeley as a result of the sit-in at Sproul Hall during the "free speech" demonstrations don't look the least bit worried about their plight.

Canada Requests Respite In War Against Viet Nam By MERRIMAN SMITH UPI White House Reporter THURMONT, Md. (UPI) — President Johnson meets at this mountain retreat today with Canadian Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson, who has urged a change in U.S. strategy in the war in South .Viet Nam. Pearson was expected t9 arrive at Camp David in Maryland's Catoctin Mountains at about noon EST. He was to have lunch with Johnson, who has. indicated he is determined to k?ep .iip for the present his policy of pressure against the Communist regime in North. Viet Nam. The meeting a* th'> President's weekend retreat was announced Friday night by the White House. Nature Notes By GEORGE CLINE My first wild ducks of the season were seen on March 24th and they were two pairs of wood ducks. These are probably the only ivild ducks to nest here anymore, and several pairs raise their young in Tipton County each year. They usually, nest in hollow trees, but will build in boxes and have been! known to nest :n chimneys - that are in woode'd areas. 1 knew a pair to nest about 25 feet up in an ash tree a few years a house, but this was near a creek and The-tree was not large, Ijhe' t slit where' the 'ducks' entered was so narrow that 'they had to turn edgeways to get in and cut: The owner of the land obligingly put sheet metal around that tree and adjoining ones, so that coon 'and other predators could not ; get to the nest. ;; | iFoimerly there were 17 species i?f wild ducks that could be found in Tipton • County during the migration period,! and many of them stayed here ! throughout the simmer, nesting'in or near bogs and marshes. And this does not include such other swimming! birds as the ! coots and grebes (mudhens) which are not cucks but which! are sometimes killed and eaten in duck season. : But duck hunting in Tipton County has gone with the times. • I I ••: Cooking A Coot And speaking of eating coots —onp bachelor said that he shot one-[several years! ago, early in the morning, dressed it and put it on to cook for dinner. At din-: ner time it was so, toi^gh and stringy that he couldn't stick a fork in it and he decided to have it fo • supper. At supper, he still could not masticate the meat, and Jso! he flew into a rage and tossed it out for the dog to gnaw on! lOri the other; hand, I have read in sports magazines about people, mostlyj in the south, .cooking coots and grebes and eating them with a relish. It seems that their! cooking process involves soaking in vinegar, and other manipulation. But personally I am like the bachelor— if I have to spend a whole day preparing and j cooking a food product, I prefer to let the cats -and dogs wrestle with it. Young Ducks •There has been much speculation in the .past about how the young wood ducks get down frpm the nest in the tree, and they, do come !down young.. A few years ago 1 saw a mother J "wood • duck and six young in a Tipton County j creek, and the young could hardly have been more than a few days old. Some have claimed that the mother duck carries them from the nest on her back, in her bill or be tween her feet, but the truth seems to be much simpler than that. As soon jas they are old enough to get restless, they scramble out into' space from the nest cavity and take their chances on a fair landing, or-if they do not do!that, the parents will push them out. (But since a duck can swim and escape from its enimies from the day it is hatched, land because the food and feeding habits of ducks are different from those of most other birds, it is logical that they should not rear their young to maturity in the iiest. Snipes After wild ducks had become rare, my father did considerable "snipe" hunting, mostly in April when pools of water stood in the fields of nearly every farm There were 9 1 species of water birds (not bittern, rails or her ons)' here then, all small and most people did not distinguish among them, calling all of them snipes or plover. (Continued on Pear 6) Tipton County Pet Center Suggested By JOE RANKIN Three dogs roam the countryside in the southwest corner of the county. Farmers in the area are wary lest the canines turn carnivorous and revert to their wolfish instincts, turning on herds of livestock in the area. Their mother was ordered to death last Spring when she and her litter were discovered in a tree on the Tipton Golf Course. The mother was shot and the pups left to fend for themselves. I .ON'T HURT MUCH, YOU SAY?-A little girl looks a. bit frightened as she waits for the needle In Saigon, where South Vietnamese are being inoculated against an out! brsaJs oi bubonle plagus. ! . The plight cf three of man's best friends now seems to be in the hands of the expert rifleman who must • perform the unwelcome and unwanted chore of removing—eliminating—these animals. Only a few weeks ago, citizens of the community were shocked by the news of a barbarous act committed on a little dog that wandered near the city dump. That dog was cared for by -city" and county workers, but theyi.could not protect it from soma fiend who slit its throat and skinned it, nailing the hide to a county garage door. Strikes Again Only,two weeks later, it was discovered that another unfortunate hound had had its throat slit. However, the animal hater had not even been kind enough to finish the job. The bleeding 'beast was granted its m»rcy through a bullet provided by a sheriff's department officer, j City and county law enforcement officers, are outraged I at these inhumane acts. Conserya tion officers and farmers are fearful of wild packs of dogs destroying livestockGand game. Thoughtful citizens are aware of the situation and try to keep their pets in control. Pets Abandoned Yet there is no Humane So ciety, no S.P.C.A., no animal shelter in Tipton County. Abandoned pets are let out on a country road or just left behind when their owners move away. Sometimes, they are taken to the city-county dump where they are humanely disposed of by law officers who despise this aspect of their job. We speak of the "Welfare State" and gripe about how much money is expended on 'free loaders' who won't work in favor of the relief check.: We have "Medicare" and "Aid to Appalachia", yet we do nothing for poor dumb animals whose only fault was to i be owned by thoughtless, cruel owners. The attitude seems to be do little for humans, and less for animals. If animals ! are Jreated in such manner, how much better will humans be treated? Cost of Cars There is the matter of the pocketbook. How expensive would it be to maintain an animal shelter? Strays would.have to be picked up and taken to the shelter. A special vehicle might have to be used. Once at the shelter, the animals would heed shots and other precautionary veterinary care. They would have to be fed and exercised. Someone would have to be hired to do this. On the other hand what does it cost the average livestocker in lost animals, due . to ! dog packs. What about $he heart ache of a child when he learns his pet was bitten toy a rabid stray and must be destroyed? What about the practical problem; of the overturned and strewn garbage cans and trash barrels? , . Or the , cost' of' controlling diseases, and insects spread by un- .cared <lbif.pets?°.<Qn .the brighter, side; homeless animals go' for a premium at nearly every shel-! ler in the country during Christmas "and Easter, thus returning part of the investment on their "welfare"'. Job For Someone • " What is. being done in Tipton County, to.remedy- a worsening situation' — -worsening because breeding time, is upon us as .well as vacations and summer house moving? Nothing is- being done at the present time. All that can be heard is the farmers' lament and the animal lover's gripe. There Have, been suggestions in the past that the city and county cooperate in a joint effort to provide some'* type of' shelter • at the County Farm. It was once proposed that several stalls be set aside in one of the barns; one of the workers or an able resident of the County Home could then look !after the shelter-"inmates" for.-a determined length of time. Veterinary care and feed would be supplied by certain appropriated funds and'per- sons wishing to purchase - the animals for pets could reimburse part of the cost through tag fees. (Continued on Page 6) At Right Time The Canadian leader, in a speech Friday night at 'Philadelphia, suggested that a pause in U.S. air -strikes against North Viet Nam "at the right time" might open the door to negotiation of the conflict. Officials said the prime minister, a staunch friend of the United States, would receive a courteous hearing for any proposals he might offer in the talks. But there were no indications of any impending change of policy in the guerrilla war in the near future. No formal news conference was scheduled, but newsmen were permitted in the area and there was a chance a statement might be issued after the talks. ' Pearson delivered his Philadelphia speech at a dinner at which he received Temple University's World Peace award. • May Not Work The prime minister said that the U.S. raids on North Viet Nam might not achieve "the* desired political' response" because the Communists would shy away from "the public humilitation of backing down under duress." "There are many factors which I am not in a position to weigh," Pearson said. "But there does appear to be at least a possibility that a pause in such air strikes against North Viet Nam at the xight .time might provide the Hanoi authorities with an oppor- ! tunity ; 7 if they wish to take it. ("to-inject some flexibility inib! their policy; without appearing to do so as the" direct result of military pressure."If\ such a suspension took place, for a limited time, then the • rate 'of _ incidents in South Viet Nam would provide a fairly accurate way of measuring its. usefulness and the desirability of continuing it." Rebels Claim 12 American Planes Down Building Cede Work Continues The Tipton County Planning Commission met in the Commission Chambers at the Courthouse Thursday night to continue working with • proposed amendments to the County Building Code. A public hearing on the proposed amendments will be held April 15, according to Planning Commissioner Ralph Wilburn. In other business transacted by. the Commission, Roy Bales was given permission to proceed with building on six lots of his subdivision located near Adler's Corner .on U. S. 31. Bales was (Continued on Page 6) GROUNDED—Pan America's Boeing 707s stand Idle at 8an Francisco airport In the current system-wide pUot strike for higher pay and less than 80 flying hours per month: There ar» a dosen ox ths 17 million Jets here. By MICHAEL T. MALLOY United Press International SAIGON (UPI)—Soviet - built jets challenged American warplanes -over North Viet Nam for the first time today. A U.S. spokesman said there was no fight and that an armada of : 150 U.S. Air Force and Navy : jets blasted two vital bridges' near Hanoi. Communist Norlh Viet Nam : claimed its air, sea and ground units shot down 12 American planes . and damaged many more but did not report any aerial- battle. The Navy acknowledged the loss of two planes but the Air Force withheld any announcement. A fleet of 100 Navy jets opcr- • ating from . the carriers Hancock and Coral Sea struck a combination railroad and highway bridge at Dong Phuong on Route 1 just 65 miles south of Hanoi—the closest they have come to the northern capital. They ran into intense anti-aircraft fire. A group of 50 U.S. Air Force iets hit the Dragon's Mouth Bridge at Than Hoa seven miles further south. Thay, too, encountered intense anti - aircraft fire from masses batteries of Red guns ringing the targets. Red Jets Interfere A Navy spokesman said three migs rose ' and "interfered" with the raiders hitting the Dong Phuong bridge but fled into a. bank of low-lying haze with Navy fighters purs'.iing ihem at 1.000 miles an hour. ~le. did not' say whether any shots were fired. There was no indication im-« mediately whether the Migs were North Vietnamese. Communist Chinese or Russian. Th2 Soviets have supplied Migs to both the Chinese and Vietnamese and at least 50 were reported based on the outskirts of Hanoi. Pilots did not notice the national markings on the planes. Previously the Migs have remained on the ground while U.S. and Vietnamese planes repeatedly struck the north, hitting troop concentrating points or radar stations. Pilot Bails Out The Navy said one of its planes was shot down over the target and the pilot bailed out and parachuted onto Communist -held territory. Another . Navy jet crash-landed at the . U.S. air base in Da Nang in South Viet Nam with a damaged hydraulic system. ; The anti-aircraft fire was intense but there was no indica- !ion whether Soviet-built ground to air missiles were used. Diplomats returning from Hanoi reported recently the Russians had sent them to North Viet- Mam but there has been no confirmation of the reports. A navy pilot who flew on the raid said the anti-aircraft fire 'ooked like "horrible belches, of orange flame from the riverbanks." It was noteworthy that the- Communist report of today's air action mentioned Red air units for the first time. The re- oort did not mention any aerial encounters but did say anti- • aircraft units and air, naval ind ground forces "hit back at "he air marauders heroically, accurately and hard."
