TUESDAY, JULY 30, 1965. IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN NINE DRC Is Rushing Expansion Work By BERNIE KENNEDY Associated Press Sports Writer LIVONIA (AP)—A $3 million expansion project which hopefully will make it one or the top sports showplaces of the Midwest i? nearing completion at the Detroit Race Course. l DRC begins Its 84-day meeting two weeks from Monday (Aug. 2) but use o* the new facilities by the fans will not be possible unti! Saturday, Aug. 14, at the earliest. "We're doing our best to get things done in time for opening day," track President E. E. Dale Shaffer said. "But a more realistic estimate would be on the 14th, our second weekend of racing" Improvements at the DRC include a completely new road to accommodate fans coming from the eastern cities, better parking facilities for some 12.000 cars, clubhouse and other improvements for horses and jockeys. "The jockeys are important people t:c us and we are going to try to make them as comfortable as possible—that goes for our fans, too," Shaffer said. The jockey room will be unequalled anywhere in the world. shower and refreshment facilities, DRC jockeys will have full use of a sauna bath and a masseur The extension—both clubhouse and grandstand—to the present DRC plant will allow it to easily handle s. crowd of 50,000. "We had 29,570 people here on Memorial Day in 1952 and that was our biggest crowd," Shaffer said. "Even under the old setup, I wouldn't say they were packed in here "When we are set to go with the addition, we'll easily take care 01 50,000." Another feature at DRC will be an electronic sign board in the middle of the Infield which will flash messages to the crowd, much like the boards being used in some baseball parks The board will flash messages, Jockey changes and data pertinent to the day's racing. Construction of a new paddock area almost adjoining the Jockeys' room and in full view in front of the stands will do away with the long trips between races which some jockeys had to endure in the past. "Even with the delays of a foul claim or inquiry, we should be able to keep the racing program going right on schedule," Shaffer said. "We have moved the projection rooms for the stewards to look at the films to the press box area. ."And, the stewards just have to come down the elevator to talk to the jockeys if they have to, rattier than race to the back of the building to find-them. It all saves time," he added. Race fans can be whisked to their seats via a 50-passenger elevator, escalators or stairs. Many will surely want to take the leisurely walk around the circular incline in the new part of the building which will feature a glass - enclosed fountain and Colorful lights.

Norman Minor, one of Brown's attorneys, said in a news conference after Monday's session that he will call Brown's wife, Sue, as a defense witness. He also plans to have Brown testify in his own behalf.

He is married and the father of three. Monday Magic Lost by Mets MILWAUKEE, WiS. (AP) — Monday has lost its special magic for the hapless New York Mets. Now it's just another whitewash day. The Milwaukee Braves' Ken Johnson blanked the Mets on seven hits, 6-0, Monday night. The cellar-dwellers had been shut out 11 times previously this season, but never on Monday. In fact, the Mets had lost only once on Monday this season and that was opening day against Don Drysdale and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Since then, the Mets had played 10 Monday games, winning nine and tying one. Casey Stengel, the Mets' manager, was hard pressed to explain the Monday phenomenon. "We just beat the pants off everybody and no umpires fixed it for us either. We have one day a year. That's us." His lieutenant, coach Yogi Berra, had no explanation either. "It was just one of those things," Berra said. "Some clubs don't lose doubleheaders." Lions, Angels Cop Victories In the doublehsader played in the Ironwood Farm Baseb a 11 League Monday morning, the Angels defeated the Bombers 7-3 in the first game and the Lions nipped the Red Raiders 2-1 in the second game.

After the Tombers scored one run in the top of the first, the Bombers walked five batters in a row when the Angels scored four runs in the bottom of the first, putting on a Wide margin lead. Held scoreless in the second inning, the TOmbers scored only one run in the third and fourth innings, but could hot match the Angeles' scoring in the second and third innings as the Angels put three more runs across the plate. The losing pitchers were Carli and Schmidt, striking out eight together. Under the brilliant pitching by P. Anderson, the Lions kept the Red Raiders scoreless until the last inning when one . run came across the plate in a last ditch defensive effort. The Lions scored their two runs with Kaup pi scoring in the second inning and Benson coming across th< plate in the top of the last stan za. Anderson, the winning pitcher struck out 11 and allowed only two hits and Domin, on the nil for the Red Raiders, struck oui nine and allowing six hits. Fudaly slammed a double for the Raiders. Fines Eliminated By Pittsburgh CINCINNATI, Ohio (AP) — When a Pittsburgh .Pirate player makes a bad play he is no longer liable for an automatic fine that he can then work off by making good plays. Manager Harry Walker said the fine!!! were eliminated at a weekend meeting of the team, but denied the situation had ever approached anything that might be described as a crisis. "There had been some sulking, but only three or four men Were really discontented." Walker told a newsman. "The ines we had in effect Were not jrater than on other clubs and not as large as in other places." The fines were on a credits and debits, and a man. who had been charged with a fine could work it off by pulling off some good plays. Walker said they were assessed when a pitcher threw a 0-2 ball in a good hitting zone, for' failure to make good on a bunt, failure to advance a runner and so on. "A fine against the pitcher, for instance, could start at $100 but with each good pitch he made he reduced it by $25," he explained. "That gives the idea "Look at this book. It shows the fines against various play ers. it also shows that most o them are even, for they had their chance to balance through good work." The award is part of the association's campaign to convince heart attack victims that if they can they should hold a job and keep active. Dressen suffered what was described as a .minor heart attack last March 7 While the Tigers were training in Lakeland, Fia. He resumed his managerial duties May 31. Chisox Favor Spitball Use CHICAGO (AP) — Let's legalize the spitball or enforce the rule against it. That's the cry of Ed Short, general manager of the Chicago White Sox. And Short has the backing of Al Lopez, the field manager Since taking the reins of the White Sox in 1961, Short has been battling for legalization of the spicball which was outlawed in 1920. At that time, pitchers who depended upon the spitball were Results of Fights By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SYDNEY, Australia — Max Murphy, 127%, Australia, out- pointed Johnny Famechon, 127, Australia, 12. SAINT JOHN, New Bruns- States Have Laws Against Imports CHICAGO CAP) — YOU can get in trouble with the law in a number of states if you drive across their borders with liquor or cigarettes in your car. The chances, however, are remote. Nearly all states have laws banning the import of alcohol or cigarettes without paying a tariff. A few states prohibit individuals from bringing in any beer or liquor for personal use. The World Almanac in 1908 advertised a gallon "baby bar- rell" of 7-year-old Maryland rye whisky shipped directly from a Baltimore distillery to the consumer. Bypassing the middle man this way is a thing of the past. The reason is that practically every state relies on the import of tobacco products and for the same reason. The states do not have the tariffs problems involved in trade between nations, but there are some regulations. In some cases a state will ban the import of a product to protect a segment of its own economy. Wisconsin, for example, prohibits the sale of colored margarine to protect its dairy industry. The import laws on alcohol and tobacco apply in sOme cases to individuals as Well as retail and wholesale firms but officials concede it would be Virtually impossible to enforce them against individual violations. States which either forbid individuals to import liquor or tobacco for personal use or limit to form a quart to a gallon the amount that can be brought in tax free include: Virginia, Mississippi, Nevada, Georgia, Washington, . South Carolina, Pennsylvania, Florida, . Arkansas, Louisiana, Texas, Indiana, Oregon, Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, California, Utah, Maine and Idaho. In some of these states — Virginia, . Pennsylvania, Oregon, Montana, Utah and Idaho — the sale Of liquor is a state monopoly. back Minor League Results By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS International League Toronto 8, Columbus 2 Atlanta 5, Rochester 4 Jacksonville 6, Syracuse 4 Toledo 2-4, Buffalo l-o Pacific Coast League Arkansas 7, Denver 6 Portland 7, Spokane 3 Only games scheduled Nicklaus Has Won $80,488 PALM BEACH GARDENS Fla.
