ONE READER SUGGESTS THAT BASEBALL FANS IN this redneck of the woods treat our umpires a mile kinder this summer. n "We were pretty rough on (he Legion umpires last year, he said. "We got on 'em pretty good." This was American Legionnaire John Blair talking. "And I admit 1 was one of the worst," he biared. * * * John was commenting after reading a recent column about the shortage of umpires. "Maybe if we let up, more will come out," he dubiously predicted. I'm disinclined to believe that such kid-glovery will result In a surge of blue-sergery but a kind word never hurt anyone (except an unkind person). Fans were brutal on the umpires at Light Brigade Field last summer and were not reluctant to turn their verbal brutality (disguised with black humor) on some weak-gloved youngsters in the state tournament. * * * Incidentally, it is still undecided if Dud Cason Post 24 will perform as host for the American Legion Stale tournament again this year. Some Casons prefer an all-out effort to gel it, while others believe Blytheville should lay off one year. * * * One of Blytheville's former umpires is doing 0. K. for himself professionally. Vince Hahn broke into the rugged pro career last year In New York state. He's assigned this season to work the Carolina League. It's considered a promotion. Vince started his spring training March 20 in the camp of the Philadelphia Phillies at Clearwater. The Carolina League was scheduled to open last night. Interestingly, the minor leagues are making a heartening comeback this year with 141 teams in 19 leagues. This is sure to be good news for strong-tonsilled Vince Hahn and all the other struggling young umpires who insist on trying to make their living by making people get sore at 'em. Races Sunday Osceola Speedway slock car races are to be held again Sunday afternoon. The management had decided to start running on Friday night but was forced to change back to Sunday because of rain this week. Sunday time trials for the Class A and C cars is 12:45; races at 2:30.

(Courier News Photo) Florida Elixir That Go-Go Gatorade! By SANDY PADWE GAINESVILLE, Fla. — (NBA) — Dr. Robert Cads, Brady Greathouse and the, University of Florida athletic department would like it emphatically noted that "Gatorade has nothing to do with an alligator. Gatorade is a nutrient supplement which is about to be marketed by its developers. The liquid, which looks and tastes like lemonade, is dispensed to athletes to supplement fluids lost during competition. The liquid was developed One Arm Is Enough OAKLAND (AP) - Sferritt Junior College relief pitcher Jack Quinlan throws left, bats left. He has no choice. Quinlan was born without a right arm. "I feel that I have to prove to people that I'm their equal," says Quinlan. He holds his glove under his chin when throwing to the plate. In his last appearance, Quinlan came out of the bullpen and limited San Jose City College to four hits and no earned | runs in 7 1-3 innings as Merritt came from seven runs behind for a 9-8 victory. He was cut from the squad when he first reported in January. "It wasn't that he didn't have the ability," explains Merritt coach Stan Korich. "I was afraid he'd get hurt. But he insisted he could do the job so I gave him a second chance." 700 Grandstand Coaches FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) — The Arkansas Razorbacks wind up their first full week of spring drills today with a filmed scrimmage planned for 2 p.m. Approximately 700 football coaches, mostly from Arkansas, are expected here today for the Arkansas coaching clinic and most of them ire expected to watch the Razorback scrimmage. The Hogs zipped through a 30-minute scrimmage Friday. Fullback Glen Hockersmith scored the only touchdown on a four-yard burst up the middle. The top play of the driv« was a 14-yard pass from quarterback Gordon Norwood to split end David Cox. Crawford vs. Ryun LAWSENCE, Kan.

Last fall, with the Florida quests for samples and explanations. "Most of them are serious requests," Greathouse said. "Right now I've got 40 letters on my desk which I haven't even answered yet. Even coach (Hay) Graves is answering the letters now." * * * However, one caller from Kansas said he heard rumors that Florida athletes were drinking "alligator juice." He wanted to know the university's secret in draining the juice from the animals. "We are sorry," Greathouse told him, "but the rumors are not true." The product derived its name from the University of Florida's nickname, the Gators. "We've had football teams, baseball teams, hockey teams, boxers and racing drivers inquire about it," Greathouse said. "Most of our teams here at Florida use it. * .* * . "One boxer's manager, a fellow from the West Coast, called us and said his boy had trouble going past the fifth and sixth round. He asked for some of the Gatorade, Then I read where the boxer beat Brian London. (Heavyweight Jerry Quarry of Los Angeles. recently defeated London.) "The nutrient rejuvenates the athlete. It is especially good in a climate like ours where heal prostration is a problem for athletes. An eight-ounce container of our drink is absorbed by the body in two minutes compared to about 20 minutes for a regular water and salt solution." * * * Galorade, Greathouse said, contains a mixture of sodium chloride, glucose, sodium phosphate, potassium, chloride, sodium bicarbonate, citric acid and artifcal flavoring. For Florida football games, the Gatorade is packaged in eight-ounce milk containers supplied by the university's agricultural school. "We're working," Great- liousc said, "on improving the flavor."
