8-D^L RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Wednesday. April 14, 1971 Club To ' Golf Champ By CARL GUYS Lack Hustle Some of the high school baseball games have simply been produced far too slpw. While most NINE inning games are produced in a shade over two hours by ^colleges and the pros the schoolboy contests of SEVEN stanzas are eating up the best part of three hours and that is what is hurting attendance;•-. One game we covered recently had two innings that took up an hour and it wasn't because that many runs or that much legitimate action was required^ Let's see what's causing the yawning delaysxthat will keep fans from coming out to boost the high school level diamond dish. First off there's the question of having the park and all the supplementary riggin ready for the game's start ON SCHEDULE. If the ball game is announced for 4:15 p.m. or for 7:30 p.m., by grannies let's get 'er going EXACTLY at the prescribed hour. Let's not wait until game time to look around for the necessary three bases which belong on the diamond well before the infield practices of the two teams begin. And leave us have the lights turned on — if the game is a nite one — well before the teams take infield workouts. Lost Motion A brand new golf king will be crowned at the San Felipe Country Club course Sunday evening. Defending champion Bob Henderson did not enter this year's club championship tournament. The golfing format for the run to the rose-room will feature semi-finals competition by Saturday and finals to be concluded Sunday. The Saturday schedule pits semi-finalists Red Bradley against Finous Doran and Joe Ricks against Bob Poole. Bradley defeated Dr. L.M. Cartall; Doran won over Clyde Sellers; Ricks eliminated Cecil Adams and Pbole won over Joe Brown in the second round tourney play. First round results had Bradley over Bud Conley; Dr. Cartall over Carlos Garcia; Sellers over Morris Taylor; Doran over Richard Brotherton; Ricks over Bert Lynch; Adams over Hiram Johnson; and Poole over Milton Ricks of Eagle Pass, The championship consolation semi-finals will pit Garcia against Brotherton and Milton Ricks against Johnson. The first flight semis feature Jimmy Sellers versus Pat Kelley and Noble Taylor meeting John M. Jones, consolation match Foster and Verne Bob Nicholson Cauthorn.

First round second flight play had Brien over Curtis Roberts; Tabor over Byrd; Pela over One thing that is dragging the game is the labor turned in by the batteries — the pitchers and catchers who are in the game. Say a starting chunker warms up for 15 or 20 minutes and declares himself ready. He and his receiver have their set of signals all worked out too and are ready to roll. So what happens, the pitcher gets in his first moment of "luke-warm water" and then by gollies the whole w*™z&&&ww^^ fandom has to suffer boredom. The hurler loses his confidence, his rhythm and his effectiveness because he moseys around the mound and takes forever peering to get his catcher's sign. We saw a couple of chunker s lose their control simply because they got off their rhythm course and begari groping around "looking" and pawing the ground. As a result both finally left the contest due to lasting wildness and were succeeded by another pair of lads Baseball Standing. By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS American League Eastern Division who did likewise. Get Going A pitcher and his catcher controls the game playing time and any good combo knows their job. Get ready, get the sign, shake it off if you think it is not the right spot for the call and then get another sign — pronto. Get the show on the road with a snappy combo and you'll wind up with more fans and less bored ones. High school baseball needs all the support it can get but it also needs to speed itself up. ^ r y -A~.k. .Baltimore Cleveland Boston New York Wash. Detroit W. L. Pet.

Oscar Brehmer, now 78 years old, hauled in the hefty cat at Cedar Point on Lake Buchanan April 21,1956. The flathead catfish record was one of the "open" categories announced recently when the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department took over responsibility for keeping the fresh and saltwater records from the Texas Outdoor Writers Association. Brehmer's fish was certified by Game Management Officer Adolph Keep of Fredericksburg, who has since retired. Now that Brehmer's big cat is official you catfish anglers have a goal to shoot at in Amistad Lake. West Texas Deer The hunting season has long been over but a deer harvest of sorts goes on and on, according to George Litton, project leader for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Dept. It is automobiles instead of firearms which are taking their toll of West Texas deer. Litton and his assistants who are assigned the West Texas area have found more than a hundred dead deer on various roadsides during the past two weeks, alt killed by vehicles., Litton speculates the drought which has gripped Texas and Val Verde County for several •- - •• ' ' land azard Tuesday's Results Boston 5, Washington 3 New York 5, Detroit 2 California3,Chicago 1, 10 innings Oakland 2, Milwaukee 0 Kansas City 5, Minnesota 3 Baltimore at Cleveland, rain Wednesday's Games Detroit (Lolich 1-1) at New York (Stotlemyre 1-0) Baltimore (CuelLar 0-0) at Cleveland (McDowell 0-0) Milwaukee (Slayton 0-0) at Chicago (John 1-1) Oakland (Segui 0-0) at Minnesota (Perry 1-1 or Hall 0-0) Boston (Navy 0-0) at Washington (Shellenback 0-1), Night California (Wright 0-2) at Kansas City (Rooker 0-1), night Thursday's Games Detroit at New York Baltimore at Cleveland, twilight Milwaukee at Chicago Oakland at Minnesota California at Kansas City, night Only games scheduled.

Most of the deer are hit at night when they are temporarily blinded by the headlights of the oncoming cars. In some instants deer are knocked over the hoods of the cars and through the windshields. A plea by the TP&W people hints that extra care and caution should be taken during the present drought. Once a little rain comes to Texas the situation will be alleviated some when the animals return to the more remote sections of the pastures. Even then it is a good idea to remain alert on nite trips be.cause deer come to the roadside year in and year out in any kind of climatic conditions.

LOUIS (AP)-Harry Walker, who has experienced more agony than ecstasy as a major league manager, thinks the Houston Astros can contend for the National League pennant. "We've felt this way from the beginning of spring training," said Walker, whose young club climbed off the ropes Tuesday to smite the St. Louis Cardinals 3.4, "We've got good depth, and we've be'en, getting good pit6h- Ing. .. "Whenwe've had to go to our bench we've been^gefiing results. We've managed to^win six games with Jim Wynn out of the lineup.'> The Astros have lost three. Wynn,sufferingfrom a pulled back muscle, was on the bench except for a pinch-hitting role as the Astros arose Tuesday for five runs in the ninth. Little J[oe Morgan pulled the trigger with a two-out, two-run single producing a 5-4 Houston lead. " ' Southpaw reliever George Brunet of the Cardinals had scarcely recovered from that blow when Norm Miller, another lefthanded batter, unloaded on a high pitch for a three-run homer. Walker pointed to the performance of Miller, apart timer filling in for Jesus Alou, as part of Houston's basis for optimism. "It wasn't a hunch," he said of the decision to use Miller in rightfield. _^ "Miller has been looking better at the plate, and they had a righthanded pitcher starting. You see things. And with Miller, he's kind of a streak|hltter. "Our ball club's growing, and it's getting better, "Walker insisted; "The last half of last season we had the second best record in the National League, Cincinnati Included, and it's given them confidence. "The best age for ballplayers is 27 to 34. Most of our guys are 26 to 28, so they're just getting to that age now.". A former (Cardinal, George Culver,shut off a St. Louis ral- ly at one run in the eighth inning and picked up the pitching triumph with ninth-inning help from Denny Lemaster. • HOUSTON ST.
