"3S Th«.OTTAWA HfiJRALE) Tuesday, April 21, 1959 i KalineOff To Best Start In Four Years DETROIT (AP> - Al Kallne is off to his best batting start in four seasons and he thinks he can keep Up the good work. It has been suggested by the Detroit Tiger front office that a good start by Kallne would assure a fast start by the club. The 24-year- old right fielder, who won tho American League baiting crown in 1955 before he reached his 20lh birthday, has disproved that theory. The Tigers have lost six of their first seven games but Kaline is hitting .467 on 14 hits in 30 trips. A notoriously slow starter, Kaline has hit well in the spring only once before, when he captured the crown with a .340 average in his second full/year in the league. Kaline's average dropped to .314 the year after he won the title, then to .295 the following season. Last year he batted .313 but his home run and RBI mark were down again. "Now I'm trying not to swing so hard," he said Monday. "People try to be nice when a guy is in a slump, and you gel all sorts of advice and suggestions. But I think I've been trying to take everyone's advice and consequently I've been a pretty mixed up guy at thai plate sometimes. Maybe if I keep my eyes open and my ears closed, I can have a real good year." Welter Crown Hard To Hold ST. LOUIS (AP)-If history re peats itself, welterweight cham pion Don Jordan might not hole the crown any longer than did Vir gil Akins who lost it to Jordan last Dec, 5. They square off again Friday night, this time in Akins' hometown of St. Louis. Jordan won in Los Angeles, his home port. Akins got the welter title with a four-round knockout of Vincc Martinez last June and lost it in his first defense. The welterweight crown is an uneasy one. The championship has changed hands 25 times in the past 33 years. The past eight years serve as an example. Johnny Bratton took the throne with a 15-round decision over Charley Fusari in March, 1951. Three months later he was unseated by Kid Gavilan. Gavilan held the title until Oct. 20, 1954. That night, Johnny Saxton took over in a hotly disputed decision. Tony De Marco beat Saxton in his first title defense. Two months later Carmen Basilio knocked out De Marco in a championship fight. Saxton regained the title from Basilio in March, 1956, but losl il the same year to Carmen. Basilio vacaled the 147-pound championship to fight middleweight. Then ensued a sort of round robin in which the leading fighters of the class battled it out. Akins heap. wound up on top of the Burke Wins In Houston Playoff HOUSTON (AP) — Jack Burke Jr. moved over to his new champions golf course today after secy- ing an amazing 64 to beat Julius Boros in the 18-hole playoff for the $30,000 Houston Golf Classic title. Burke's 30-34 — 64, one stroke short of the tournament record, gave him $4,300 and jumped him from 30th to 10th place among the year's leading money winners. The 64 Monday left Burke five strokes ahead of Boros, who won $3,000 in second money over the 7,133-yard par 72 Memorial Park course. Boros and Burke had finished the 72-hole tournament Sunday in a tie at 277. Burke today joined Jimmy De- Maret in formally dedicating and opening their new 18-hole Champions course northwest of Houston. Burke, who does not approve of Las Vegas gambling, is passing up this week's tournament there but will compete next week in the Colonial National Invitation at Fort Worth.

(AP) - Thai well-known spring malady known as trout fever is breaking out in more than 200,000 Michigan fishermen. It gets worse April 25, the opening of the 1959 trout season. On that day, if the weather is right, possibly 100,000 or more anglers will head for lakes and streams across the state. In the wake of one of the worst winters in years, state conserve- Jon men are going ahead with their trout planting program pretty much on schedule. A stretch of good weather in recent weeks improved planting conditions considerably,' particularly in the southern Lower Peninsula. Planting began in late March. If the weather holds up, about half a minion trout, most of legal size, will have been released by the end of April. Thai's about 25 per cent of the total for a normal year. Of that early planting, nearly 250,000 will go into waters of the southern Lower Peninsula, about 180,000 in the area north of the SMITH Actually, track Is a good sport for high schools. Granted, baseball has more carry-over qualities, but track is still strong in the Kansas sports world. There arc more places to compete in track than in high school baseball. Speaking of track, Archie San Roman! Jr., Wichita East's tremendous distance ace, could easily become the first high school miler in the nation to crack 4:10. San Roman! stepped off the distance in 4:17.4 at the Kansas University Belay in a muddy and bit slow track. Given a dry, warm May day, the slender senior could easily set a new national mark. The Ottawa University track squad is walking over competition with comparative ease again this year. The Braves hold wins in duals over Central Missouri State and William Jewell. Last Friday, OU swept past eight rivals in the Interdenominational Relays. The Braves have tremendous depth with two men and sometimes three or four contending for spots in each event. Ottawa wiil face its sternest test of the year, thus far when the Braves meet the Washburn Ichabods in a dual meet. OU dashman Dick Maack broke the tape four times in last Friday's relays. He won h i s heat of the 100 and then took the finals. Maack ran the anchor leg on the 440 and 880-yard winning relays teams for the Braves.

Over the whole season, however, about half of the two million trout to be planted will be released in the northern Lower Peninsula and roughly 25 per cent in the other two regions. Mostly because of fisherman habits, the big plantings in southern areas are made before the season opening and prior to Memorial Day. After that, interest shifts to northern streams. At least two-thirds of the planted trout will be rainbows, the rest brooks and browns. The season will close Sept. 18. Read our Ad in ... See Our Window UIoimiiNGToiL Open Wed.
