Jerry Fay will be at second base, Glenn Blanks at first base and Gene Flores at shortstop with David Moncibais on the mound. By CARL GUYS Texas Tops Again this year, Texas leads the nomination list of contestants for the 1972 Ail-American Futurity to be run at Ruidoso Downs, N.M. With the list completed the final count of the original nominees showed the Lone Star State with 422 yearlings representing 194 owners. Oklahoma follows with 234 entries appointed by 11 owners. One horseman from the Sooner State led 'em all with 15 nominatibns. In all a total of 1,048 horses were nominated by 536 owners from 37 states. That's an increase-of 121 owners and 172 nominations over last year's records. The All-American Futurity which is run each Labor Day at Ruidoso Downs continues to climb upward. The 1971 running is estimated to exceed $700,000 and the 1972 edition over $800,000. Richard Thompson, general manager of Ruidoso Downs, predicts that in the very near future the World's Richest Horse Race will reach the magic $1,000,000 purse. S&S One Plug Bit Amistad Bass Club members must face the challenge Sunday from 5 a.m. to 3 p.m., if they want to participate in the S&S One-Plug Bass Tournament on Amistad Lake. The challenge is the current weather and its chameleon characteristics of hot and cold, still and blowsy, unpredictability. This ever-changing present condition will test the contestants no end since the One-Plug classic will feature a TOP WATER lure - Bill Norman's Wounded Flash. The conditions of the tourney restrict ALL other lures for this one derby but offers eight place awards in both heavy-string and heavy-bass divisions just for registering and fishing Sunday. Tackle reps Clarence Stewart and Ron Stevenson of Fort Worth are the tourney sponsors and they will furnish each contestant with a copy of the approved lure. '• Rich Rewards A Pfleuger remote control trolling motor with a Horton EZ mount goes to the member who harvests the heaviest string of black bass. Second placeman gets a Pfleuger spinning rod and reel, second placer a Pfleuger worm r6d, third place a dozen lures and fourth place a plastic worm making kit. In the big bass division the champ will get a Pfleuger spinning rod and reel, second placer a Pfleuger worm rod, third place a dozen lures and fourth place a plastic worm making kit. All a Amistad Bass Club member has to do is register' between now and Saturday nite at Mike's Tackle Shop to be eligible. Stewart and Stevenson will be in Del Rio Friday late and have all the final answers on Saturday. They'll set up the method of handing out the One Plug lure and of setting up the start, the weigh-iii, etc. for Sunday's special tournament. Comstock Caper ' Coach Red Soto is in his initial season as head mentor for the Mustangs and has the services of younger brother Al as his assistant coach.

Del Rio Golfer On A&l Team In Four-Way Match Ivan Lawson, former Del Rio High School golfer, is with the Texas A&I link squad today in San Antonio to participate in a four-team match on the Pecan Valley golf course. Trinity University is hosting the event for visiting teams! from Lamar Tech, Pan American and the Kingsville school. The Javelinas with Lawson, Larry Aduddell, Andy Luddeke, Chris Delcambre and Tommy Jackson are making their final pre-league appearance at San Antonio. A&I will visit San Angelo on April 23-24 for the Lone Star Conference tournament. Stephen F. Austin. Besides tonight's starting lineup the Sotos will have Joe "Lefty" Garcia and Frank Guzman for pinch-hitting duty and Ram Ramon for moral support Garcia and Guzman are former starting outfielders from the 1970 Herd who are late reportees this season because of marital status. Ramon returns from a shoulder separation operation performed last February 12 and is only performing the half-dozen special exercises prescribed by his surgeon Dr. Wimmpy of San Angelo. The San Angelo doctor examined Ramon last Wednesday and gave him the go-ahead sign to re-start training. The Soto brothers don't look for Ramon's return to peak form for several weeks but are counting on him in the late district drive. The Mustangs hope-tororbit the double loop in District 14-AAA West Zone play with a three-man pitching staff of Moncibais, Benson and Flores. Benson is ticketed to face the district on-leading Kerrville Tivy on Friday in the Hill Country. The league will also have a second game in the Queen City this week when Crystal City comes to play the Del Rio Wildcats at 4:15 p.m. on Friday at Wildcat Park. Del Rio opened its loop play on a losing note against Kerrville and will send Cesar Sotelo out after the Javelinas in its second effort.

Baseball Standings By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League East Division _ ; W..U.Pct..G.B. National League East Division ST. LOUIS (AP) - Sinker ball artist Frank Linzy, once the scourge of National League relievers, has flashed at least a temporary return to form for the St. Louis Cardinals. The bespectacled Oklahoman, just another member of an ineffective Cardinal bullpen following his acquisition from the San Francisco Giants in 1970, came on with none out in the ninth inning Monday night to quell a budding Houston rally, 5-1. He was one of three relief specialists preserving the victory for lefthander Steve Carlton, 2-0, whose wildness forced him out in the seventh inning. Moe Drabowsky a n d George Brunet couldn't hold and the Astros moved to 5-4. Bob Watson and Denis Menke worked Brunet for singles leading off the ninth before Linzy came on. He caught Doug Rader looking at a third strike, induced Johnny Edwards to ground into a force play at second and re: tired Roger Metzgerona ; ground ball to Dick Schofield. "It's a disappointment any time you don't have a good season," the 30-year-old Linzy re Cardinal Manager Red Schoendienst said, "Without good relief we're going nowhere. Linzy pitched well during spring training and has pitched better since the season opened." A total of 23 hits in the game included losing pitcher Wade Blasingame's 410-foot home run for the Astros in the third inning. Righthander Mike Torrez (0-0) of the Cardinals and Jack Billingham (1-1) of the Astros were scheduled to pitch the final of a two-game series between the clubs this afternoon. NATIONAL AT ST.

Oct. 3 and New •WXXWXSXXX^^ Had a chat with Comstock cage coach Jim Harris this yawning and he's certainly in the big middle of a Comstock caper. It's either that or he's a snake-bit fisherman. The way he tells it is that he does exactly what the "veteran Comstock fishermen tells him to do" and he ain't doing much good. Those birds out West have Harris flipping his flyrod every day during the Easter break sacking up perch to bait throw lines for "those GREAT BIG OL' CATFISH" from Devil's River up above Amistad Lake. ... Harris, a city slicker from South Bend, Ind., a thriving Hoosier metropolis which features river and lake fishermen who cut their teeth on the waters of the state when not practicing basketball is being outslicked by his Comstock comradarie. T6 date he ain't caught diddly-squat and only lost two perch all last week. These may have worked loose, at that. •.•-_• In answer to his inquisitive mind his buddies from Texas tell him, "This is the way to catch those big cats, coach," and Harris stays right with it ... but he s beginning to wonder if he's on a snipe-hunt or if it is because the Water is too low to permit an influx of catfish to the area that R.W. Milligan, Comstock school ' super, has him putting out his throw lines. Dunk Shot Between baiting out and his fly-rodding Harris did sneak in a few casts for black bass and came up with a "four pounder — about" Monday morning. He also got a free dunking in the cool water of Devil's River during the Bunny Day fishing \.deal. He hung a bass that hung itself in the reedy edges of the river and in trying to ease his fish out into open 'water-"where he could resume the battle on ever terms, Harris lost his footing and Slid in over his head. Five minutes later, after treading and gulping he crawled out but not until after he had successfully sacked up his fish and tossed it and his rod and reel up on-the bank.
