PAGE 4 THE TIPTON DAILY TBTBUNK' Pierce Pitches tonight; Opens Giant Home Stay SAN FRANCISCO i(PI)—Little Billy Pierce, who carries on a mutual admiration affair with the City of San- Francisco, goes to the mound tonight for the Giants against the St. Louis Cardinals. It's the opening game of a long home stand and about 20,000 fans are expected at Candlestick Park to see Pierce duel with the veteran Curt Simmons of the Cards. Simmons and Dick Farrell of the Houston Colts are the only hurlcrs in the National League to go the distance against the Giants this year in 32 outings. Simmons has a 5-0 record and Pierce is 4-0. San Francisco enters the game holding a four-game lead over Los Angeles, five over the Cards—and with Willie Mays hitting only .2G5. "But we are in a better situation and playing better iball than we were last year," says Mays. "I'm not hitting as good as I should. But somebody seems to pick us up when we need the hits, that's the way championship teams work." Nobody's worried about Willie's hitting. Although his average is down, he has smashed 10 homt runs and driven in 25 runs. The pleasant surprises are infielders Chuck Hiller (.311), Jose Pagan (.293) and Jim Davenport (.337). While their averages have not been over-powering, they have hit in the clutch—and their fielding has been brilliant. "We played good all-around ball Careful Attention To Flowers — Flowers express a message of love and sympathy from one friend to another.

"But it's still far too early to talk about a pennant. There are tough teams in this league. Our pitching will ha've to stand up if we are to stay on top." So far this year the pitching has been a pleasant surprise. Giant hurlers have gone the distance 17 times out of the 32 games played. Wabash Wins GREENCASTLE, Ind.

TUESDAY, MAY 15,1962 It's good to feel the slight tremor of a light,, willowy rod in hand again. The opening of the trout season, the longer days, and the slight nip to the spring air all make any anxious- angler feel young and ready to-go. Watching the kids in blue-jeans strolling with rod; in hand toward the local fishing hole brings back memories of fishing days — carefree days. ; .. Good, big trout are deep in the swollen lakes. When you hook one, he's ready and spoiling for a fight. The rig to catch 'em, and| for any deep trout or .bass work early in the season, is a barrel sinker arrangement on six pound monofilament. The best bait is live shiners. The barrel sinker is just what it sounds like, an oblong lead sinker with a hole down the middle'which lets the line, slide through without alerting the trout before he's hooked. ' A split shot about eight inches above the hook s'tops the sinker from sliding- onto the hook. The arrangement is simplicity itself and can be worked with any • casting or spinning gear. If you're using a bait casting reel, a six foot rod' can, handle the weight of the rig best. Hooking live minnows is relatively easy. Just be sure not toOibok them too deeply under the dorsal fin. They should be able ito wiggle temptingly. Later in the season, hellgrammites will do as well. The streams are still swollen with rain and late melting snow. Big shiny lures, or streamers, and big bucktails with' plenty of • colorj work best in the muddy waters. Also, spinners and wobbling type spoons of %-ounce do very well for hank fishing; before- wading is practical in fast water. Spinning tackle — a Mitchell 300 reel with its interchange-able I spools holding different weight line and a six and a half' ' foot hollow fiber glass rod — are a boon to early season anglers. . Spinning gear works perfectly with either, heavy bait rigs or light) spoons and spinners.-Ease of casting is especially important when you need to "reach out" with tackle to cross rough water. So hang out the "Gone Fishin'" sign and get the feel of a rod in your hand — it's a good healthy feeling. Years Rookie Crop Of Unusual Quality By JOE SARGIS UPI Sports Writer Rookies are blooming in the major leagues in record numbers this season with Bo . (no-hit) Belinsky of the Angels,-Manny-Jimenez of the Athletics and Dick Rollins of the Twins the early standouts! in what, may turn out to he a bumper crop come September. | ~ Not since the war years when many of the established stars were in khaki and blue have there been so many rookies still on majorj league rosters beyond' the first month's cut-down, date— a whopping 20 per cent of the total- number of players in the two leagues. • Expansion, no doubt, has had a lot to do j with it, but the caliber of the newcomers this season is surprisingly high. A breakdown of the two leagues shows 50 rookies in the AL, which expanded a year ago, and 47 in the NL, which added two new clubs this season. (There were no major league games "played" Monday, tout in exhibitions the.New York Yankees- beat the Pittsburgh Pirates, 4-3; the Chicago Cubs defeated the Chicago White Sox, 2-1; and the Washington Senators beat the Cincinnati Reds, 5-4, in 13 innings). Belinsky, an' eccentric. left-hand­ er who had a' so-so 9-10 record at Little Rock in 1961, has won all five of his major league starts; including a no-hit, no-run' game against the Baltimore Orioles on May 5, to rank as the top hew pitcher. Jimenez, who .batted .325 at Vancouver last year and came to the A's in an off-season trade This drawing approximates what a No. 1 (excellent) rating in a standard smoke test looks like. It indicates practically, no smoke at all. . and it was scored by new hydrogenated Maraf uel. This is important to you because a fuel oil with a No. 1 rating could carry you for years without a burner cleaning. Service costs are therefore lower and your burner, more carbon free, delivers more heat per gallon than non-hydrogenated fuel oils. NEW MARAFUEL* HEATING OIL MEANS STILL GREATER PEACE i COST-CUTTING HY0R0GENATI0N . 2 SICKNESS PROTECTION The hydrogenation process represents a major improvement in Marafuel Heating Oil. As the smoke test above shows, new Marafuel leaves less carbon than ordinary fuel oils. • This means fewer cleaning jobs in your burner... less heat-robbing soot... less gum on burner nozzle. You get more heat per gallon. If you becoma ill and can't work for 14 days or more, the insured Marafuel Budget Plan pays your heating bill for the entire length of your illness under a doctor's care — for the rest of the heating season in case of death. And this insured Marafuel Budget Plan* costs you nothing-no service charge ... no hidden costs. 3 BUDGET-PLANNED BILLS The insured Marafuel Budget Plan also takes the mountain.peaks out of your heating bill during the coldest months. It averages out your heating charges to make ten monthly installments from September to June. You pay the same monthly amount during, the entire home heating season. You budget your heating bills in advance. Of MIND WITH: RUST'INHIBITING SUMMER FILL New hydrogenated Marafuel, as a summer fill, provides greater protection against sludge formation and rust from condensation You won't be billed.until fall and you're charged the lower summer rate. ! So don't buy just heating fuel. Buy Marafuel and enjoy greater protection and greater peace of* mind than ever.

Pat. OH.) By OSCAR FRALEY UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Primo Camera sat on a bare wooden bench in one of the gloomy dressing cubicles and. acted as pleased as if it was the anteroom of the White, House. ."This is fine," he said with a snaggle - toothed smUe^reaching down with one massive paw to rub the giant bas relief road map the. varicose veins made on his legs. "This time I am making good money " he added as he stowed his wrestling . gear in a . battered bag. "And' this time I am keeping it." . It's one of -the memories you retain of the odorous muscle barn which is St. Nicholas-Arena. A place which soon will be no more as they tear it down to raise a new television office building. Like the night the wasp-waisted blond kid named Fra'nkie Ryff scored his 16th .-victory in a row. He didn't care that the floors creaked and' that the air was heavy with the ages of ground- in dust and body-heated liniment. "I know I'll win the title," said the curly haired lightweight. "I love to fight and I know I'll make it to the top." Bright And Fresh This, too, was,in the basement dressing rooms at St. Nick's: And the hope was so bright and fresh in him that it was almost as if somebody had opened • a window. Even though there -weren't any. They all fought there down through the years since the first card - was presented in 1906. Through 10 years before that this had been ah ice skating arena. But in the 56 years that followed it was a cauliflower haven where such of' the storied showed their wares as Sam Langford, jack Johnson, Jess Willard, Abe Att'ell, Stanley Ketchel and Harry Greb, right up through Benny Leonard and such later hooking heroes as Rocky Graziano, Archie Moore and Floyd Patterson. _ More than 30,000 bouts went on here where the balcony seemed to hang right over the ring and the thunder of clapping and the stamping disapproval soon taught the waltzers that they'd better get with it or get lost. ' ,.<*'•"•• No Longer There As boxing limped along, its gladiators gobbled up by the voracious appetite of television, the arena which the fight mob always referred' to as "The.Rink" tried gallantly to.keep the supply of youngsters coming. But the numbers weren't there any more and to nurse the place along they filled it with a lot of other events: rassling, hockey,' bowling, table with' the. Milwaukee Braves, currently is leading both major leagues in batting with, a .382 mark; Rollins, who batted a modest :274 at Charlotte in 1961, has a .351 batting average with 6 homers and 25 runs batted in. The two rank "as the top hitters in the first five weeks of the season. ELfC'S MEETING Wed, May 16 8:00 P.M.

Yet it will be remembered mostly forihe boxing that was its life down through 56 tumultuous , years... And boxers like the kid named Ryff whose hopes and dreams were smashed' by brittle hands. For it was here, where he had started so enthusiastically,, that he tried a doomed comeback. "What can I do?" he said bitterly. "I made some dough but I' lost it in a bad investment. There's nothing leftbut try to get another stake fighting." SQ be dropped the decision and then dropped^put of sight. And, when you saw that he had been critically injured in a fall «m a construction job, you had to think again of those two vastly differ- entnights. In St. Nick's. And how, at long last, it soon will join him as part of the boxing past. 'Mudcaf Grant On 30-Day Leave Seeks More Wins By JOE DURBIN United Press International CLEVELAND, Ohio CITPI)—Pfc. Jim Grant, on temporary duty with the Cleveland Indians, hopes' to help the clubin a big fashion before reporting back to Uncle Sam. Grant, on a 30-day leave from Fort Belvpir, Va., is scheduled to make his third start of the'season Wednesday night against Kansas City. He won the first two, including one against New York. "I should get three or maybe four more starts before I have to report back June 6 and I hope to win most of them." Grant said. ''Then I'll be avallable -on weekends until I get discharged in early August." The Indians' pennant chances suffered a setback last fall when Grant, tagged "Mudcat," was recalled to active duty. . Things brightened, however, when it was learned he would be available on weekends. Plays In Service The veteran right-hander played on the post basketball team this winter to keep in shape and was named manager, of the baseball team. He automatically 'became the star pitcher. , "We started working out in mid- March," Grant said. "Although we had to work indoors for a # couple weeks, I had a chance to* do a lot of throwing and I kept my legs in shape with plenty of running." Grant tuned up with a couple of short but effective relief jobs before making his , first start against Kansas City May 6. He hurled a three-hitter as the Tribe won, 5-1.' That showing won Grant a chance against the Yankees here Friday night. He set the Bombers, down on five hits in winning, 7-1. His earned-run average for 18 2-3 innings is 0.48.
