EIGHT IRONWOOD DAILY GLOBE, 1RONWOOD, MICHIGAN TUESDAY, AUGUST 3, 1965. Tigers Charge Chisox With Providing Frozen Baseballs THE BLUE CHIP—This hydroplane, called the Blue Chip, owned by Dick and Paul Gordon of Bay City, made a recent stop in Iromvood on its way to take part in the Golden Cup Hydroplane Races in Seattle, Wash. The craft is brand new, built last winter at Bay City at a cost of $12,000, and has never raced in major competition. It is powered by a V-12 World War II Alison airplane engine and is propelled by a propeller that is only 13 inches in diameter. The boat will travel up to 180 miles per hour. The owners have had a complete machine shop built into a house trailer which goes with the boat to the racing sites. The members of the crew stated that the machine shop, the only one of its kind, can make any part of the craft in a matter of minutes.

Johnson, who pitched a six- hitter for his 12th victory and Chicago Blanks Detroit by 2-0 CHICAGO (AP) — While the umpires watched the baseballs and the spectators counted the hits, the Detroit Tigers bowed to Chicago 2-0 in a night game here Monday. Detroit collected eight hits and the White Sox accounted for six—compared with a total of 22 for ooth teams in the Sunday doubleneader which led to charges of frozen baseballs from some Tigers and skepticism about the whole thing from others. Pete Ward decided Monday's contest with a two-run single in the first inning after Tom McCraw and Don Buford had singled and moved up on John Romano's sacrifice. But some Tigers—like Hank Aguirre and Dave Wickersham, both of whom worked Sunday- continued to mutter that Chicago had slipped some cold, wet balls into that day's twin bill. Denny McLain, who was stuck with Monday's loss, endorsed the views of his fellow hurlers "I thought this business of cold and heavy balls was a joke until I pitched. The balls were cold and heavy." Those complaining point out that cold baseballs are tough to hit and tougher to hit very far. Using them, they say, puts the team with the heaviest hitters at a disadvantage.

Cogdill, veteran offensive end, signed along with four other Lion veterans. Another four, including quarterback Earl Morrall, were still outside the fold of the National Football League club. The Lions held their first full- camp day of practice under new coach Harry Gilmer Monday at suburban Bloomfield Hills. They play their first exhibition game with the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles at Philadelphia Aug. 15. Signing along with Gogdill were halfback Danny Lewis, defensive end Darris McCord, tackle Daryl Sanders and linebacker Monte Lee, all for one year. Unsigned, besides Morrall, were fullback Nick Pietrosante, defensive end Sam Williams and defensive back Dick La Beau. and damp and has the been wind cold has any- jump those been blowing in.

McLain sunk to 9-5. Meanwhile, the controversy over "frozen balls" continued, with the whole thing apparently in the lap of Cal Hubbard, the American League's umpire-in- chief. Hubtfard said he inspected the room in which the Sox keep their baseballs "I couldn't find anything wrong there but the boxes and the wrappings around the balls were damp." Tiger Manager Charlie Dressen took a philosophic view of the whole cold-ball controversy. "What difference does it make''" he said after Monday's loss. "Neither club did much hitting, and you can't win a baseball game if you don't score." The Tigers were in Cleveland today for a contest with the Indians.

"TRY KING EDWARD America's Largest Selling Cigar By JOE REICHLER Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) — Kenny Holtzman, a fourth round choice who was preceded by 60 se- lectees in baseball's free agent draft of high school and college players, could be the biggest bargain of them all.. Scouts back from a tour of the minor leagues, speak glowingly of Holtzman and regard the 20- year-old graduate of the University of Illinois as a tremendous big league pitching prospect. Signed by the Chicago Cubs, Holtzman was recently promoted to Wenatchee of the Class A Northwest League after winning his first four starts at Treasure Valley in the Pioneer League. The youngster was beaten 2-1 in his first Wenatchee start but he struck out 11, walked only two and allowed four hits. Joe Coleman Jr., Washington's No. 1 draft choice who was signed to a reported $65,000 bonus, had a rough initiation in the Carolina League. He lost his first four starts at Burlington, three by one-run margins. Despite his defeats, Coleman has pitched three complete games and allowed but eight earned runs in the four outings. Hal Jeff coat Jr., son of the former major league pitcher, lost a toughie in his debut with Magic Valley of the Pioneer League. A San Francisco Giant draftee, Jeff coat Jr., gave up three hits to Treasure Valley, fanning 11, but lost 1-0. Shortstop Wayne Garrett, drafted by the Milwaukee Ump Says Little Could Be Done By JOE MOOSHIL CHICAGO (AP) — Big Cal H u b b a r d, the American League's umpire-in-chlef, sat in the umpires' room at Comiskey Park Monday night mulling over the cold baseball dispute and admitting little could be done about the matter. Some of the Detroit Tigers leveled charges against the Chicago White Sox after Sunday's doubleheader that the Sox were providing frozen balls which were impossible to hit. Joe Cronin, president of the eague. said such charges should be investigated and then dropped the dispute into Hub- jard's lap. Charlie Dressen, manager of the Tigers, said he made no accusations and only went by what the umpires told him that the balls were cold and damp. Umpire Ed Hurley said the balls were cold and damp but anyone accusing anybody of doctonng the balls would be crazy to do so without catching someone red-handed. Other members of the Tigers said "nonsense" and attributed the cold balls to atmospheric conditions. Al Lopez, manager of the White Sox, dismissed the whole thing as being ridiculous so far as the White Sox would do anything deliberate and then admitted the balls were cold. White Sox General Manager Ed Short thought about it and then said, "Our park is only a few feet above sea level so when we get rain or humid weather everything gets damp. If we let matters stand, the balls will be wet. If we air-condition the room where they are kept, the balls will get cold." Only last weekend in Detroit the same two teams played a four-game series which produced 53 runs and 19 home runs. A five-game set in Chicago this weekend produced 16 runs, 36 hits and no ball traveled any farther than two bases. Cronin, reached by telephone in Boston, said, "There's noth- LAST RACE—Stock car number 11, owned and driven by Jerry Corda, president of the Hiawatha Racing Association, is towed off the track after it rolled over in the first race of the evening Sunday at the Gogebic County Fairgrounds. The car later was taken from the pit and, according to Corda, will not race again. Corda stated that he was planning to enter another car in next week's races. The car and its driver have rolled over a number of times in the past seven weeks. Corda was not injured in the accident. (Daily Globe Photo) Great Lakes Said to Be Untapped Pool for Future Sports Fishing ing in the regulations to stipulate where the balls are to be kept. The only rule is that they be delivered to the umpires' room an hour before the game. Charges of this kind are nothing new. Accusations have been made before that baseballs were kept in the 'heater' or on 'ice'. "It seems to me that no matter what the condition of the ball, it would be fair for one team as the other, thereby no occasion for trickery." Anyway, when it was all over, the White Sox won Monday night 2-0 on Pete Ward's two- run single in the first inning and the combined pitching of Gary Peters and reliever Hoyt Wilhelm. The victory gave the Sox the series 3-2. By BOB VOCES Associated Press Writer PONTIAC (AP) — The Great Lakes is the one, great untapped pool for future sports fishing in the Midwest, a seminar of experts agreed Monday. But much more research is needed into the subject—plus much more money to finance it—the meeting called by the State Conservation Department agreed. Sen Philip A. Hart, D-Mich., had suggested a switch to sports fishing might help the problem • plagued Great Lakes fishing industry. Experts from the Michigan Conservation Department and parallel agencies from other Great Lakes states were joined by representatives from federal agencies and state universities at the one-day conference at Haven Hill Lodge, near Pontiac. Howard Tanner, head of the fish division of the Michigan Conservation Department, was the leading apostle of a switch to sports fishing emphasis in the lakes. Yet we never have put our brains, money and sweat be- Braves, made a spectacular debut with West Palm Beach in the Florida Rookie League, rap ping four hits in his first four times at bat. Wayne is the younger brother of Adrian and Jimmy Garrett, both Braves' farmhands. Ken Boswell, a 19-year-old second baseman drafted by the New York 'Mets out of Sam Houston State College, is hitting around .400 at Auburn in the New York-Penn League. The youngster hit safely in his first 18 games as a professional. Louis Howell, son of Dixie Howell, former National League catcher with Brooklyn and Pittsburgh, is making his father happy with his play at Johnson City, a Yankee farm club in the rookie Appalachian League. He recently hammered two home runs and batted in nine runs in one game. Like his father, young Howell is a catcher. Norman Miller, a third baseman drafted by the Houston Astros, may have set an all-time minor league record recently when he drove in at least one run in 12 consecutive games at Amarillo in the Texas League. Les Rohr, the Mets' No. 1 draft choice, is paying dividends on his reported $60,000 bonus. The 19-year-old left-hander from Billings Mont., teamed up with another pitcher to hurl a shutout in his debut at Williamsport in the Eastern League. In his latest start, Rohr defeated Reading 4-3 and collaborated with reliever Bunky Warren to fan 18 batters Norrie Claims Jr. Miss Title FINAL STANDINGS W L Norrie 12 0 Sleight 9 3 Newport 4 8 Central 3 9 St. Ambrose 2 10 In the final games played in the Junior Miss Softb a 11 League Monday evening, C e n- tral trounced Newport 23-7 and Sleight defeated St. Ambrose 86.

Newport wound up the season with a 4-8 tally to cop third place, and Central held the fourth spot with a 3-9 record. St. Ambrose finished on the bottom of the pile with a 2-10 record. At mid-season, an all-star game was played and a picnic held for all the girls in the league. 2 Wakefield Girls Triumph WAKEFIELD — In the Wakefield tennis tournaments being held this week, two Wakefield girls defeated two Bessemer girls in the women's division Monday evening. Sandy Hamilton, Wakef i e 1 d, defeated Shirley Holmes of Bessemer 6-0, 6-3. Helen Boline, Bessemer, was beaten by Jane Negri, W a k e- field, in the second round, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4. The winners of Monday evening's action in the women's division will meet for the championship sometime this week. Entries are still being taken for men's doubles, and should be in by Friday evening. hind the concept," Tanner complained "The bulk of our activities remains oriented toward commercial fishing." The millions of future fishermen can never satisfy their sports needs in inland lakes and streams, Tanner said. He termed a purely commercial approach to the Great Lakes fishing potential "A prostitution of the worst kind" of the resource—especially for such use as cat food and fertilizer. "We are fooling around with a few hundred dollars," Tanner said of the research funds now available, "when we desperately need up to as much as $1 million a year." Tanner asked representatives of other Great Lakes states to urge a "massive financial assistance program to the states" ;o help realize the potential. He said the Michigan department will try to draw up a blueprint for such possible -aid, for presentation to Hart. Dr. Poter Tack, head of the Michigan State University Fish and Wildlife Department, said Michigan's great lakes fishing industry has declined from about a $5 millon annual bus- ness to a take of some $3-$3.5 mllion a year. About 10 per cent of the present commercial fishermen Hiawatha Race Group Meets At a meeting of the Hiawatha Racing Association held Monday night at the Sport Bowl in Ironwood, the members voted to begin a "Bumper Stic k e r" campaign. Association spokesmen stated that the bumper stickers would be available at next Sunday night's races at the Goge b i c County Fairgrounds and there will be no charge for the stickers. It also has been announc e d by the association that about 15 Ironwood cars and drivers will travel to the Marengo-Ashl and County Fair to take part in the stock car races. The races will be held both Friday and Saturday nights of this week. Time trials are scheduled to get under way at 7 p.m. and the races will start at 8. In other business transacted at Monday's night's meeti n g, the association voted to donate $25 to help finance the Ironwood Little League All-Star team to COURSE IS SHORTENED Green Bay for the Wiscon s i n SUTTON, Mass.

These fish, Tanner said, could feed on such small fry as alewives, that are mostly going to maste. He said there is a conservative estimate that there are 100 million alemives—a small herring-like fish—in Lake Michigan lone. It also was suggested that habitat improvement and spawning ground enlargments, plus stockings, be tried to improve the chances of steelhead trout already well established in the state. Man-made problems of pollution and harm to the fish by pesticides also need to be controlled, all in attendance agreed. Commercial fishing possibilities, meanwhile, shouldn't be' neglected, said Dr. James Moffett, chief of the division of bio- ogical research at the Ann Arbor Bureau of Commercial Lish- eries. There should be more effort to harvest the tremendous schools of alewives, he said. "It's not only a tough course to play but a tough course to walk," was Sam Snead's comment regarding the Bellerive Country Club course, scene of this year's U.S. Open in St. Louis.

The rest are like marginal farmers, he said. "There is no place in today's economy for the small fisherman," Tack said. One way of making Great Lakes sports fishing more attractive, conservation department spokesmen said, is the introduction of "exotics"—new species that can feed on some] of the mostly-junk fish in the lakes and provide exciting angling. The conservation department is working on introducing several species of salmon. Tanner JHiFJ Cm.
