Former UTEP football player Tony Tolbert, now in his. second year with the Dallas Cowboys, gained 15 pounds during the off-season. Although . he's filled out to 250 pounds, the 6-6 defensive end still could pack on a little more weight, Cowboy coaches said. ... In El Paso, people of all races ' can play a round of golf even at the city's spiffy private country clubs. While much of the golf world focuses on the all-white Shoal Creek Country Club in Birmingham, Ala., it's business as usual in El Paso. The issue in Birmingham is race: Why must next week's PGA Championship be played at an all-white country club? Good question. In the Deep South, some old habits apparently die hard. Officials from El Paso's three private country clubs said there is no such racial discrimation here. They will readily accept anyone who wants to be a memberjregardless of race. "Our only" criteria is a per-" son's credit rating," said Bill Eschenbrenner, El Paso Country Club's golf pro for 25 years. Skin color is not a factor at the city's three private courses Vista Hills Country Club has about a dozen black members, club manager Chuck Bolen said. Of the club's 600 members, about 40 percent are minority. Coronado Country Club has 650 members. Many are Hispanic, golf pro Danny Swain said. The club does not have black members. El Paso Country Club has 800 members. Almost half are Hispanic, Eschenbrenner said. The club does not have ills!: Csntu . black members. The city's low black population is to blame for the lack of black members at the El Paso and Coronado Clubs, Eschenbrenner said. Both clubs have had blacks in the past. Officials from all three private clubs said golf is enjoyed by a -healthy cross-section of El Pasoans. Bolen said: "We have whites, blacks, Hispanics, Japanese, Koreans." Racial discrimination does not exist on El Paso's private golf courses, Coronadb's Swain said: "In my 21 years at this club, I haven't seen anything like that here." ...

Phone 589-1131 Diabios remain on hot streak as pitcher beats ex-teammates Times wire and staff reports SHREVEPORT - The Diabios Dean Freeland had been disappointed that he didn't get to pitch against his old teammates, the Shreve-port Captains, when they played in El Paso earlier this month. Sunday night, he made up for lost time. Freeland, who was signed as a free agent by the Milwaukee organization after parts of four seasons with Shreveport, mastered the Captains with a two-hit shutout as El Paso took a 3-0 Texas League baseball victory. The Diabios have now won . six of seven on this road trip . and six of seven this season against Shreveport. Since the all-star break, El Paso has won 14 of 17 games. . The loss dropped Shreveport, which has lost its last three, to 17-19. "It was my best outing of the year," Freeland said. "Tonight I was hitting my spots better than I have at any time in my career. That's why I threw so well." Texas Logons "I was disappointed that I didn't get to pitch against them in El Paso, but my back was hurting, Freeland added. "This was my first time back and the first time to pitch against my old team. I wasn't nervous out there, but you do want to do well against your old team." Said Shreveport manager Bill Evers: "I can't remember him throwing this well since 1986. I thought he pitched super. He never really got many chances at complete game because his pitch count was usually pretty high." Indeed his complete game was a surprise to the 1,249 Shreveport fans in attendance. He threw just one in 61 starts with Shreveport, that coming in 1987. It was also his first complete game of this season in 20 starts. Freeland improved to 9-5.
