Free Piu'ss, Ttursdiy, July 13, [957--9 'Big Bill' Controls Emmett NAMPA-ttwas"BigBill's" game all the way Wednesday evening at Clipper Field, Bill Bnmcel, who did an outstanding job at Vallivue High School during the prep baseball season, had complete control of the situation as the Nam pa Legion nine trounced Emmett 13-3. Tonight the Legion squad tra- vels to Boise where they will meet Capital on the Borah High School diamond. Capital has shown ilselt to be one of the strongest teams in ttie area and Hall said that a win tonight would be very helpf'il. "Bill did a great job for us," praised NampacoactuN'orm Hall. "He didn't get loo many strike ouis tat he made Emmett hit the ball where lie wanted them to hit it, Bill seemed to get stronger as the game went along," Hall's boys lianded Emmelt hurler Jotui Forester the loss as they connected for 11 hits. Big Dennis Doman and Mike Meyers were Nampa's big guns. Doman hit 3-4 at the plate, one of the slaps an arching double into deep center field. Meyers duplicated Doman's fete going 3-4 wilh a double ot hi sown. Bruneel aided his own cause with a litth inning two baser that drove in two runs. Nanipa scored in e*ery inning ol the contest. The two big FISHING SWINGS INTO HIGH GEAR Area Streams Clearing BOISE - With almost al! of the mountain roads open and the rivers and streams running clear the fishing season should swing into high gear thi* wek end. The only road closure still reported in the area is the Hazard Late road in the McCaJJ area. Some Kokanee are being caught on Goose Creek. The Forest Service asks all fishermen going to the vicinity to use the Brundage road. Cascade Reservoir is full at the present time and fishing has been fair for {rollers in the Sugar Loaf Island area, llerrtck and Tripod are fair and Warm Lake is listed as fair to good for anglers. The South Fork of the Salmon has been fair tor .small irout. Lost Valley Reservoir was reported as slow. Fair to good luck has besn encountered on theLillleSalmon for Steelhead. Nampa Splashers Win 'Fun Meet The South Fork of the Salmon drainage will nol open on July 25 to Salmon fishermen. This closure includes all of (fie South Fort's drainage and not just the main stream. Good Salmon fishing was reported, however, on Big Creek, northeast of Yellow Mie. This stream will be open until July 31. Stream fishing seems to be the best bet due to the warming of the reservoirs and lakes. The Middle Fork of the Salmon River below Boundary Falls has been good Salmon fishing. Streams in (lie Eramett area have been improving. Sage lien Heservoir was reported good for trolling and some nice channel catfish are being taken out of the Payette. In the Mountain Home area the Boise River is still running high due to the water being released from Anderson Ranch Dam, Bank fishing on Anderson Reservoir was reported as good. Trinity Lake has hosted some good fishing over the past week. Tte region can now be reached by either the Fall Creek or Rocky Bar roads. The Idaho State Fish and Game Depl. reported that they are still planting fish in some localities. innings were the fourth with three (allies and the sixth, when four runs crossed the plate. F.mmetl scored all three of its rims in the sixth and ruined what looked like a potential shutout for Bruneel. A double by Carlson scored and the Emmelt hero scored on a fielder's choice. The visitors seemed to be hampered by no reserves and lack of experience. Coach Hall commented earlier that Emmelt was a young team still in the building stage. "The team Is looking better all of the time," remarkedthe Nampa leader. "We aren't making as many mistakes and the defense is improving. Almost everyone Is hitting the baseball well. I think we should be ready by the lime the Slate Legion tournament roils around in August." Nampa will host the State tourney A'jgusl 10-13 at Clipper field in Nampa. The Emmett victory upped Nampa's win-loss record to 913. EMMETT THE UMP said "safe" but just by a breath. Nampa first baseman John Snodgrass put on the long stretch buf even that wasn't enough as this Emmett player beat out the throw. The Nampa legion nine downed Emmett 13-3 with a fine pitching effort by regular first baseman Bill Bruneel! (FREE PRESS PHOTO) ONCE OVER LIGHTLY Where Is Everyone? Bt WANE CORNELL On a warm Saturday evening 2,371 race fans turned out for the weekly Meridian Speedway races. Now that the Tater Cup and the Fourth of July fireworks are a thing of the past a true picture seems to be developing of just how badly the beer ban hurt the Speedway. More than one person associated with the racing cars has stated that unless the prize money improves the track will revert to the old jalopy diys. "Why do you think so many of the drivers are on the Carnrii circut this tkH»ra," remaned one 'valley; driiter.-- '.'It' used to be that Meridian had some of the biggest purses around but lately the^'wlnners have been receiving about half of what they used to. It's getting lougti to field a car for what you make on Hie track." It costs money to field a competitive A or B class car and the faster you go the more money it costs. Win or lose tires, motors and other parts wear out and have to be replaced. A man with several thousand dollars invested in a machine will go where the money Is and that apparently Isn't the Speedway. Some changes are in order and they betterbe made shortly, It would be a darn shame to lose the sport of motor racing. I take back what I said. Several weeks ago I made some remarks about the ex-heavyweight champion Cassius Clay. Since that time events have made me change my mind, A group of very prominent Negro athletes talked to Cassitis. Their main purpose was not to try to change his mind, but to find out the reasons for the decision to go to prison rather than be inducted into the Army. All of the athletes came away convinced that Cassius was sincere in his beliefs. After reading about this meet I began to do a little thinking. If Clay had accepted induction, the chances are he would have never been in a dangerous position anyway. He would have been more valuable to the Army as a public relations man than as a footslogger. Cassius would have probably spent his entire military career putting on exhibitions in post gymnasiums around the world. The champ knew this and he also knew (he penalty that would face him if he refused induction. Still he refused to take (hat step forward. That, my friends, took a lot of intestinal fortitude. Today's Clay (the one who faces five years in prison), is different from the one who spouted poetry before every fight. The Clay of today is a deeply religious man even if it isn't the same religion that the majority of us practice. He doesn't smoke, he doesn't drink and he is probably the quickest and deadliest fighter to ever enter the ring. So like I said before, I take it back. A man such as Clay deserves some respect. Aaron Named CINCINNATI (I'PI) -Hank Aaron of the Atlanta Braves was named National League player of the month for June Wednesday by the panel of 50 baseball writers and broadcasters who participated in the league's monthly poll. Aaron drew 17 votes to edge the Cubs' Ron Santo, who was second with 14. Mfke McCor- triick of the Giants was third with eight. NAMPA - The Nampa City Recreation swimming team showed a newly formed Mountain Home squad the ropes Tuesday evening in a dual contest at the Nanipa municipal pool. The Nampa boys defeated their opponents 447-1C4 and the Nampa girls topped the Mountain Home girls 440-143. "It was really more or less just a practice meet," remarked Nampa swimming coach Art Payne, "Mountain Home doesn't have too many swimmers and they are just getting started.- Everyone just had a good lime." Payne said that the Nampa squad Jet the visitors borrow some swimmers so they could compete in the relay events "We had son^ of our girls competing for Mountain Home's boys learns in order to make a full squad," remarked the coach. "Everyone had alot of fun." Payne said his team would compete Saturday in the Caldwell relays and Sunday at the Lucky Peak relays. yanks Score Wins OSLO ((.'Pl)-Canada's Bill Crothers and Bob Blum of the United States were victorious Wednesday night Crothers won the 800 meter finals with a 1:50.0 clocking while Blum took the 400-meter hurdles in 52.3 seconds.

UWN MOWER JOHN DEERE town fc Tractor Dealer Aciwtfiom kkjko Pow», Pioneer Standings THESE BIGHORN SHEEP are part of the original 38 animals live-trapped in British Columbia and released in (lie Owyhee Mountains of southwestern Idaho a few years ago by the Fish and Game Department. Recently a helicopter census located 56 of these California bighorns and still more were believed to be hiding unobserved in the rocks and caves. This increase, especially the sighting of 12 Iambs, indicates go^d reproduction and adjustment to the new habitat.
