6-DEL R»O (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD. Friday, April 2^971 (. i r-- Snowballing Met with favorable comment after our crusade to keep Big Friendly un-polluted. Harry Carroll, public info director for Laughlin AFB, has a n,eat bit going in today's issue of the Border Eagle and at Thursday nite'fr meeting of the Amistad Bass Club prexy John Finegan .made an appeal. Finegan pointed'Qiut that since we have 300 members it would be a fine gesture for each to pickup after the thoughtless folks who toss cans and other refuse into Amistad Lake. We are sure that an all-out — never-ending — campaign by all fishing clubs and others interested in Big Friendly will do much to keep Amistad Lake from becoming a slush pit or garbage dump in the future. What's New An aluminum softball bat 4o^4he coming season was developed by the Wilson Sporting Goods people after exhaustive research. The new bat is slip-proof, crackproof and perfectly balanced all-aluminum. This is good news since less natural wood will be used up to add to the pilWdjf cracked or broken bats each season. The entire bat is fashioned of one-piece, seamless aluminum tubing, allowing neither "weakspots" nor area in which it-might disengage or come apart. A practical yet tasteful dull coidred, anodized ; finish \ eliminates distracting reflections and allows the hitter to perform with,unbroken concentration. Gone will be the hours spent by coaches trying to teach the youngsters to \ hold the "trade mark" up. . . ""-•: Skrumeda's Script Comes a letter addressed to your old Guffer today from Phyllis Ricks Skrumeda from Minneapolis, Minn. Let's read it together. "Just wanted you to know we watched a 30-minute show on WCIN-TV* yesterday called 'Fishing.' This 30 minutes was devoted to Lake Amistad or the announcer said 'Big Friendly,.as the natives call it.' He was very complimentary abo^t the people and their friendliness and said that the rock formations were so pretty that it was hard to concentrate on your fishing. "They gave directions on how to get to Diablo East Marina from Del Rio and showed the boat going into the marina. Mentioned that they borrowed the boat from Bill Stewart of Amistad Lodge. They were catching white and black bass and said they hoped to return soon. "Thought you might like to know that Big Friendly has been.on television up here. Believe me, I was shocked when I heard him say Lake Amistad.. I didn't think anyone had heard of it up here, but now they sure . have. Also they, said that the 1 Texans were known as braggards, but now could see why, cause Texas had everything you could ask for. Sincerely, Phyllis." Thank you for the letter. Phyllis and Texas can be thankful for having such thoughtful folks like yourself • too.
