DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Friday, April 16,1971-5 Chavira's Charmer Had a long chat with Danny Chavira, San Felipe „ School athletic director, and he announced his plans for creating a high-class high school baseball tournament to be called the San Felipe Queen City Invitational for 1972. Chavira revealed that he is mailing out invitations to schools in Uvalde, Eagle Pass, D'Hanis, San Antonio, San Angelq, Laredo, Fort Stockton and Del Rio to stock the two-day tourney with top-flight; varsity teams. The Queen City Invitational would be worked by association umpires and staffed with experienced scorers, etc. The play would be day and night gamesr utilizing Roosevelt Park for daylight and night time games and Wildcat Field for other day games to run off the tourney without any drags. Chavira's .plan calls for the cooperation of the Del Rio Chamber of Commerce, Laughlin AFB, the city's service and social clubs, Del Rio High School, and other Queen City organizations. He would have fine trophies and visiting coaches' presentations sponsored by local business houses and will ask Laughlin to accommodate the visiting schools with sleeping space and mess hall privileges. The Mustang athletic director stated, "Schools do not want to come to Del Rio when it requires an overnight stay and a brace of meals. They can't afford it. To rent hotel rooms and buy meals for 15 or more people over two days is too much money for any school." Chavira believes that he can attract eight or 10 first-class teams to Del Rio if he receives the cooperation he will seek. "If I can tell those schools that we'll have sleeping space and meals for them, I'm sure they'll jump at the opportunity to come to Del Rio for our proposed tournament." New Challenge If the hail balls covered Amistad Lake like it covered most of the Queen City the chances are the Big Friendly high-ball turned into a cool one and kept whatever bass that were on the spawn binge out of the shallows. The hail fellows who plan to fish in the S&S One-Plug tournament for Amistad Bass Club members on Domingo may be scratching the surface without getting much answers. Brother, and sister bass may be back in the deptns which situation would make the topwater tossers face a drought. From Fort Worth and the Stewart and Stevenson combo we learn that they'll arrive some time last this evening and registration for members who plan to fish in the unique One-Plug derby is on now with the S&S team to hand out that one lure prior to launch time. We know it is the Bill Norman Wounded Flash and we understand that contestants have the right to take more than one color along but NO OTHER lures. Mike Haynes is collaborating with the S&S folks for this Sunday's classic single-plug tourney and he gently dropped us a yawning hint that topwater lures were doing some good in the upper Castle Canyon, in the San Pedro Arm and especially in the areas of Rough Canyon. That's 30. GAME DOWN DRAIN Hail Knocks Out Rams' Four Runs Six Wildcats to Run In Regional Preview IN PERSON-David McPherson of Plainview fished Amistad Lake Wednesday and came up with 10 black bass. The top fish weighed 4 Ibs. 8 ozs. and all were taken on red plastic worms. WEST ZONE BASEBALL What might be termed as a dress rehearsal for the real thing that comes a week later is the "Little Regional" invitational track and field meet at Alamo Stadium, San Antonio, Saturday. Del Rio will have a select regionally-qualified crew in the special event. Track. coach Walter Levermann told the News-Herald this morning that he will take the sprint relay team of Gerald Land, Tommy Ratliff, Albert Garcia and Dennis Rowland plus alternate Russell Murgatroyd and long jumper John Spears. Rowland, the Queen City Comet, will be the busiest of Herd Wiped Out, Cats May Play The hail and rain Thursday. night erased four runs and cut short the proposed nine-inning baseball game between the Del Rio Rams and the Ciudad Acuna Pirates at Roosevelt P&rk. Leading 4-0 on Al Soto's grandslam circuit clout in the bottom of the 1st inning the Rams saw their runs go down the drain as all players dashed off the field and sought the shelter of cars parked outside of the park. The unexpected hail storm left ice balls and ankle deep water standing on Roosevelt field to prohibit further play. However, Ram manager Pablo Rodriguez said the game with Club Parrita of Piedras Negras will be played Sunday at 2:30 p.m. in the Del Rio facility. Thursday night's hail and rain has wiped out high school baseball for both Del Rio and San Felipe high school teams' original 14-AAA West Zone plans. Claude Fest, athletic director for the Del Rio High School, notified the News-Herald that the proposed game with Crystal City for Wildcat Field is "definitely not going to be played here." Fest explained, however, that "there was a possibility of moving the game to Crystal City this afternoon." If the Cats go to the home of the Javelins then the second game of the home and home series two weeks hence will '• become the home game for Del Rio. If weather in Crystal prohibits play today then the game will be re-scheduled for Del Rio as its original home game. In a noon report Fest said that the <Cats will go to Crystal City at 2:30 p.m. hoping to get in a 7:30 p.m. night game there. Red Soto, head coach at San Felipe notified the News-Herald that the Mustangs will not travel to Kerrville for this afternoon's scheduled game. "I talked to Tivy this morning and learned that their field is too wet to permit play today. We'll pay there tomorrow if the rain lets up or have to re-schedule the game for a later date." . Out of the "if" situation one thing was certain. There will be no baseball in Del Rio today. The rest of the plans are pending. With the District 14-AAA West Zone campaign still in its infancy, Kerrville leads with a 2-0 tab after posting two wins by a sum runs. total margin of two A Tivy victory would enhance Kerrville's zone title hopes greatly and put them hi the driver's seat and the pressure on the rest of the four schools since the division season is a matter of only eight games per team, or two home and home series for each contender. Del Rio makes its bid to crack the western zone's win column today with Ceasar Sotelo pitching- the Cat corps in running a leg of the 440-yard sprint relay, the 100-yard dash and the 220-yard sprint, Land will accompany the Comet in the century dash and Spears, who received a bonus bid when Uvalde's Mike Dishman decided not to miss his baseball chores at the Coyote, school. Dishman had qualified with a second place finish in the District 14-AAA meet and Spears was third. Del Rip is no stranger to the Alamo Stadium classic. In 1970 Rowland ran in the same events hell try Saturday afternoon. He sped to a deadheat in the 100-yard dash sharing a 9-8 clocking with Dennis Lee of San Antonio's Sam Houston. In the 220-yard event The Comet was second in 21.9 behind Austin Reagan's Ralph Dunlap. The Wildcat sprint relay team of '70 had Rowland, Ratliff, Garcia and senior John Partin. This quartet registered a fourth place finish in posting its best seasonal mark of 42.9. The Wildcats have posted better marks in the past and own a new school mark of 42.7 in the sprint relay, set in their own Queen City Relays on April 3, this year. Rowland also holds the school record of 9,5 for the century and the Wildcat mark of 21.5 for the curved 220-yard dash. Spears placed third in the district meet with a long jump of 19' 9W but has cleared 20 feet both before and after that official session. Levermann told the News-Herald this morning that "we expect John (Spears) to |ump 20 feet or better at San Antonio and at Corpus Christi. He's been doing well in workouts and could threaten John Partin's 1970 mark of 22' 2V<". Rowland made the Texas All-State sprint list for 100-yard contestants in 1970 and gained national prominence with his 9.5 clocking, second best in the country. His 21,5 mark in the 220-yard sprint was fifth best in Texas. Off of his past performances and current condition Coach Levermann rates The Comet as "the main threat in the Alamo Stadium Saturday £nd in the Bucaneer Stadium next week." His appearance on the anchor leg of the sprint relay team also makes the Wildcat quartet a feared foursome at San Antonio and Corpus Christi.

"If we had been hitting, it would have been a lot different in these two games," he said. "We really wasted some good pitching, but we never seem to hit well at Candlestick." The Giants, meanwhile, received some good news by learning Willie McCovey does not have carilege damage in his left knee. Healy, who had 10 at bats and no homers for Kansas City in 1969, slammed his game-winning homer on the first pitch he saw in the National League.

Walker speaks from experience. The ailing Giants Thursday used three rookies in their starting lineup, and a fourth rookie, third-stringcatcher Bran Healy, cracked a tenth-inning homerfora4-3 victory over the Astros. It was the second straight extra-inning win for San .Francisco over Houston and boosted the Giants' National League West lead to a pair of games over the Astros.

"I made only one mistake all game, and Bonds hit it out— that's what really hurts," said Dierker, who was taken off the hook when Houston scored off reliever Don McMahon on John Edwards' run-scoring single in the ninth.

The annual all-sports quest for the Commander's Trophy, an elegant five-foot award trophy, will end Sunday afternoon on the Laughlin Golf Course. Five squadrons still have hopes of having the coveted trophy for their barracks show room and two are tied at the top in current point standings. Each year the squadrons at Laughlin vie in all sports on an intra-mural format building up points towards winning the Commander's Trophy. At present Air Base Group and Students Squadron (STURON) are in a 401-point deadlock. Three other squadrons, 45th PTS with 396, Hospital with 362 and FMS with 356 are still in the running as the race enters the stretch drive on the golf course this weekend. Play begins Saturday at 9 a.m. and will conclude Sunday afternoon offering 50 points to the 1st place squadron team, 30 to the runnerup, 20 to the show pla^e team and 10-to the fourth " place finisher.
