DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Thuraday, April 8,1971-9 By CARL GUYS . Aggie-Gaggy iMaybe it is just as well that a bit of film problem veloped this yawning. This way the braves back on » Texas A&M cage campus wont see Aggie Coach telby Metcalf in his fishing get-up. [What happened was that Coach Metcalf, while in kmstock to sign Webb Williams to a scholarship for \M "found" exactly two hours and 68 minutes to spect" Amistad Lake with Comstock "guides" Steve rand Larry Hut to. i Taylor, former Del Rio Wildcat cage coach and rent crew member of Diablo East Marina, shot the and their four fine bass. A dip into the developing as we hurriedly wanted to see the results wound , as a problem — the film was of the color variety and fe got zilch. 1 However, the problem might be the answer to Coach letcalf's hopes since he had told me "I was a mess, hair ncombed, old T-shirt with "Top Cat" emblazoned on chest and baggy britches." Caught Good 'un Coach Metcalf, described by young Haynes as "a Leat fisherman who knows how to fish plastic worms fell," caught a 4 Ib. 1 oz. black in the short period the tip tossed the long wigglers. i 'Haynes harvested the biggest bass at 4 Ib. 6 oz., and kutto hung and boated the other two topped by a 3 Ib. |2 oz. black. Metcalf promised to be back and has a couple of fishing cronies who need a lesson on Amistad ake.' in mind to come with him. The Aggie coach turned put to be a real "down to th" guy and talked fishing and basketball with an sy-going tone but left no false impression that cage jeers were "easy" at Aggieland. He is an advocate of "perpetual play" citing the fact |hat summertime is not for loafing but for at least three times per week in the gym," on a feller's though. The SWC successful mentor, not tall by present day asketball standards, was All-America as a player and Jthough he's a native Oklahoman he's "true Texan" all |he way in the Lone Star Conference and the Southwest 3nference, where he owns titles. Among the recent Texans Coach Metcalf signed is rent freshman Jack Vest, 6-8 former Kerrville Tivy |tar and nine other yearlings from a wide area of the jne Star State. Good Catch With the signing of Webb Williams Coach Metcalf got dmself and the Aggies another great college cage rospect. One thing for certain is that Webb can pass the academic bit along with his shot at the basketball Dusiness. Metcalf mentioned at the signing yestiddy that ; 'there were a lot of good college prospects around the nintry but not an-abundance of both intjgjjgptual ids." The Aggie mentor also pointed out that good cagers ame "on purpose," explaining that "some boys have jiborn talent and good coordination but lack the will to subject themselves to the rigors of serious training." ±Metcalf also mentioned, that "while extra tall boys, •were desirable" a lot of medium and even short-statured Iplayers were "making the grade" in college. At A&M ICoach Metcalf has a pair of players at even six feet in (Charlie Jenkins of Fort worth and Bill O'Brien of I Houston on the varsity squad. Of course he also has 17-foot Steve Niles of San Antonio which helps under the Speaking about under the baskets Metcalf stated, "We lat A&M have a great weight program going for the [basketball players" to condition and build them up for [the strenuous job of contesting for rebounds. I Williams wiU get into the swing of things next tall land by the time he's been in the Aggie basketball uniform a year or two he ought to develop into quite a figure. His 6-7 frame is bound to fill out on the Metcalf I system although he's not skinny, by any means now. That's 30.

(Photo Courtesy Lakeview Trailer Park) Tuesday Night League Tightens SCHERTZ-Del Rio and San Felipe high school track and field teams are competing today in the bulky District 14-AAA meet at Samuel Clemens High School here. All 12 schools in ithe huge district have representation at the, Buffalo Stadium today where 8V&-hours of serious track and field competition are oh tap. Besides the two Queen City teams the 14-AAA classic drew Uvalde, Kerrville, Fredericksburg, Crystal City, Cuero; Floresville, Pleasanton, East Central of San Antonio, Gonzalesand host Clemens. The 1971 district format called for field event prelims to begin at 1 p.m. and finals for the infield contestants to start at 3 p.m. this afternoon. Tracksters go to the mat at 2 p.m. for preliminaries and seek qualifications to enter the 7:30 p.m. showdown tonight with the final event set to start at 9:30 p.m. The Del Rio Wildcat squad of 20 is spiced with speed in the sprints. Led by Dennis Rowland, the Queen City Comet, the Cats feature potential first place points in the 100, 220 and sprint relay events. Rowland is being counted upon to defend his century and furlong marks and the 440-yard relay unit of Rowland, Gerald Land, Albert Garcia and Tommy Ratliff should successfully retain Del Rio's place at the district top in that event. The one-two teams in the Tuesday Night Ladies Bowling League met with stiff resistance—^^his—week—and between them added only Va-point advantage. The top team, Sue's Beauty Shop, wound up in a 2-2 deadheat with Border Office and runnerup Del Rio Typewriters managed to pick up the Vi-point 2 1 /»-l 1 /2 in their match with Frank's Garage. Third place Del Rio Pharmacy took a 3-1 decision from the Bank and Trust team and Southwest Livestock defeated Gino's Pizza 33-1. DiMarco's Garage beat White Auto 3-1 while Lone-^ Star posted the only 4-0 count of the week taking in Hicks-Ponder. Patricia Brockman of Southwest Livestock rolled the top game of 221 and Janice London of Del Rio Typewriters tossed the high series of 530. Gerri MacGillivray and Mrs. Brockman tied . for series runnerup honors with 516. The and series went to Pharmacy with high game Del Rio 811-2,340. At the Easter break Sue's lead the league on their 84-36 tab with the Del Rio Typewriters second at 80-40. Del Rio Pharmacy are third with 72V4-47Vi Rowland, who holds the Del Rio High School record of 9.5 in the 100-yard heat and the top 220-yard mark of 21.5, may find it a bit too early to run such esteemed times. The Comet's two school marks, set last year, compare favorably with national times as recorded in 1970 and reported in the current issue of Letterman magazine. The top mark in the nation for century sprinters belongs to J.T. Hollins of McKinney, District 6-AAA. Hollins sports the only 9.4 in the country and in all probability will hook up against the Comet at the Texas state meet in Austin later this season. Tonight at Schertz, Rowland is expected to cop both spruits after scratching from the 100-yard event at last week's Queen City Relays in favor of a segment dash on the Cats mile-relay unit. His absence in the century clash gave Fredericksburg's Keith Neffendorf running room and second place behind Roosevelt's 4-A Jay Shlmek a surprise winner in 10.1, Del Rio's Gerald Land was a half a stride behind the Battlin 1 Billie and could cause trouble tonight were he and Rowland to qualify this afternoon. In the longer 220-yard sprint Del Rio could get both the Comet and Albert Garcia qualified since Rowland is the odds on favorite to cop the heat and Garcia ran * close third to Shlmek last week here. While the Wildcats shine with jetlike short speed the team as a whole lacks lustre in the middle and long distance events and has little hope other than Land's long-jumping ability in the field events. San Felipe's sole shot at. district success is placed in the leaping talent of Jerry Fay who was just three inches short of Land's winning jump of 20' 1W in last Friday's Queen City Relays. Track personnel and fans of the. 14-AAA West Zone area seem in agreement Thursday night that the Fredericksburg track and field team which features both strength and depth should take the loop title today. Also in western minds Kerrville Tivy rates a shade behind the Del Rio Unit but neither the Antlers nor the Wildcats are given much chance of outdoing Fredericksburg as a team. Unknown quality and quantities comes from East Zone area schools, Cuero, Pleasanton, East Central, Floresville, Gonzales and host Clemens but there seems little hope of anyone upsetting the Del RVoans in the three specialities: 100-yard, 220-yard and 440-yard relay events. Del Rio's 42.6 in the sprint relay event was established in 1970 and only tied the mark previously set 10 years earlier at the Wildcat school. Also it is quite unlikely that a sudden sprint star should rise to usurp the Queen City Comet's nationally publicized dash marks. Coach Walter Levermann and the Wildcat team bussed to Schertz in a motorcade that also featured a squad of junior varsity contestants.

New York Cleveland 1 1 1 HOUSTON (AP) - Management of the Houston Astros has beensayingthis year's club has great bench strength. The point was proved Wednesday nighb when Jesus Aloii played as a substitute and collected three straight hits, his last one driving in the deciding run, and the Astros edged the Los Angeles Dodgers 2-1 in the Astrodome. Alou, a .306 hitter last season, would like to be a regular but he isn't angry over his reserve role. "I know I'll get to play in many games," he said. "The - ' - •• know Morgan moved Cedeno to third and he scored on Alou's solid shot to right. The mound victory went to Houston starter Wade Blasingame, who had late help from GeorgeCulver. Don Button, who went all the way for Los Angeles, was the loser. After five scoreless innings, the Dodgers tallied on a walk, Maury Wills'single and stolen base and Willie Davis' single. The Astros tied it up In the same inning, startingwlth Alou's one-out single. Alou was forced at second base by Bob Watson, but Deirls Menke's clutch double down the left field scored ton thought he was out when he had been ruled safe. He left the base and was tagged out by Roger Metzger. "I had my face still to the ground after sliding back," Sutton said. "I thought the umpire had called me out.

Culver recorded a save for Blaslngame by getting slugger Richie Allen to hit into a double play with a runner on base and can I do? "That's just the way it is.

Alou entered the game in the topof the third Inning after cen- terfielder Jim Wynn pulled a muscle in his right side swinging at a pitch in the first Inning and was forced,to retire.
