DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Sunday. April 11. 1971-7A 4 / San Felipe Opens Race Here Tuesday \ STOP IN OR CALL WARDS AUTOMOTIVE CENTER! Ramiro Garcia Ramon surgery injury re-start Coyotes Guests For District DiamondDebut The San Felipe Mustangs will P^y host to the Uvalde. Coyotes in the Herd's District 14-AAA opener Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. in Roosevelt Park. Herd head coach Red Soto and assistant, brother Al Soto, plan to start David Moncibais oh the mound against the Coyotes who are 1-0 in the league after knocking off Crystal City in their District 14-AAA opener Tuesday. Wayne Benson will catch and Glenn Blanks plays first base, Jerry Fay at second, Gene Flores at short stop and Tony Lomas at third. The Hercrs outfield will have Oscar Ozuna, Pete Hernandez and Ruben Moncibais starting. The Soto brothers also announced the return of three veteran senior ball players. Ramon, Joe rt Lefty" and Frank Guzman, underwent successful for a grid shoulder and has the OK to workouts. Garcia and Guzman, both good hitters and fine outfielders, are married young men who "have found time to practice and play ball," reported Al Soto. Both Sotos expressed delight over the prospects of having the trio return to the Mustang diamond squad. Red said, "While we don't expect great things from the returnees all of a sudden, we feel that they'll help us in the district race before it is all over." Al Soto also said that "We hope to rotate our pitching staff of David Moncibais, Waldy Felan and Wayne Benson for the first three _ district games. By then Ramiro Ramon might be ready for a starting assignment." Ramon, a strong righthander, is also the owner of a good curve-ball and is expected to pitch within 10 or 15 days. Garcia and Guzman could conceivably play within a week or so after getting in some batting practice this week. Lee Trevino Wins Tourney EL PASO, Tex.

(Photo Mike s Tackle Shop) Distress Signals Set for Boaters Special to the News-Herald AUSTIN-S.O.S! This famous signal has spiced many a war movie. And "MAYDAY" is another well-known distress signal which brings to mind sinking battleships or flaming B29s. Civilian boaters on Texas waterways probably seldom see or hear either of these signals, but they should nevertheless be responsive to other, less dramatic, calls for help. Operators of boats both large and small assume a responsibility each time they launch, according to officials of the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. This responsibility involves a tacit commitment to help other boaters in distress. Cubs Blank Astros, 6-0 HOUSTON (AP) - Veteran Chicago Cubs pitcher Milt Pappas says 35 major league shutouts "Is not bad for an old man." Pappas, 31,collected his 35th Friday night with a three-hitter as the Cubs defeated the Houston Astros 6-0. The Cubs scored all their runs off Houston starter Tom Griffin in the second inning. "Ithrew 83 pitches," Pappas said. "Imagine 83 pitches and only 16 of them were balls. "Gosh. I wish they were all that easy. Six runs early, that sort of took the edge off." "It just all ties in. I felt good all spring and I threw good all spring. I just tied it all together." He said the word got out when he was at Baltimore that he couldn't finish a game. "It ;Was a bad rap that followed me to the National League," he said. "Once you get a reputation like that you can't do a thing about it. I got sick and tired of hearing that, believe me." Pappas certainly finished what he started against the Astros. He didnt walk a batter and struck out seven, He also doubled in a run. A walk.and a hit batsman started Griffin's downfall before 17,359 fans in the Astrodome. J. C. Martin singled in the first run and Pappas doubled in another. Don Kessinger singled in another and the fourth one field- came on Glenn Becket's GI* 'S C1101C6 When Joe Pepitone doubled in two more runs, Griffin was removed in favor of Ken Dorsch, who stopped the Cubs on one hit over the next four innings. Buddy Harris and Denny Lemaster finished for the Astros. , The three hits given up by Pappas were all singles. With two out in the third, Forch and Jesus Alou collected hits, the lone occasion the Astros put two runners on base in the same inning. The last six innings Pappas allowed only an infield hit by Denis Menke. Pappas' shutouts include 26 in the American League and nine in the National League, Boaters use a variety of distress signals. They range from simple arm-waving to flares, whistle blasts and flags. Perhaps the most common method of attracting attention to a small stalled craft is for the operator to wave a piece of white cloth, or whatever color cloth is available. ; Many boaters simply wave their arms — and this may be effective at times. But the U.S. Coast Guard has adopted an official arm signal for this purpose. The boater repeatedly and slowly raises and lowers his arms from a horizontal outstretched position. This signal is not likely to be misinterpreted as a greeting by other boaters. It should be made in a standing position from the highest point on the boat. The following, are generally accepted distress signals, to be used depending on the equipment available and visibility: — The S.O.S. is the most widely-re cognized distress signal. It is made in Morse code with three dots, three dashes, three dots. Besides radio, it can be sent ,by sound signals — three shdrt (space), three long (space, three short blasts on a horn; or by visual sign — three short, three long, three short flashes of a light. — Send the emergency word "MAYDAY" repeatedly on a radiotelephone. MONTGOMERY AVE. F at 12th St. 775-2458 OPEN 9:00 A.M. To 5:30 P.M. —A gun or other explosive, fired at intervals of about one minute. — Continuous sounding of fog horn, bell or whistle. — Rockets or shells burning red flares. In commercial kits, some flares have parachutes attached to keep them in the air longer. — Flames at night and heavy black smoke by day. Burn oil, but not gasoline, in a metal bucket or equivalent. — Reverse your flag or ensign so that it flies upside down. — Fly a white cloth from the highest point on your boat. The International Code flags NC, or a square flag with a basket, a box, or a bell-shaped object above or below it on your boat's mast are also well-known daylight signals. — A traditional fisherman's distress signal is a pair of oilskin pants or any other conspicuous or incongruous object hung in the rigging. In short, boaters should investigate any apparent signal which might indicate help is needed. ' Sometimes a minor act of assistance can avert difficulty, or even tragedy. Most boaters should gladly offer aid when the occasion arises, because they realize they may find themselves using these distress signals someday and banking on the stewardship of their fellow boaters.
