8-DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Thursday, April 22, 1971 By CARL GUYS Wise Choice Choosing between a shot at personal glory or a chance to become a valuable part of the high school baseball team was Uvalde's MikeDishman'sdilemmathis spring. Dishman, a long jumper for the Coyote thmclads, qualified for the Region IV meet to be held Friday and Saturday nites in Corpus Christi. He also "qualifies" as one of Uvalde's ace pitchers and had to make the choice between two sports. Dishman looked before he leaped and came up BASEBALL. His choice paid off for himself, his team and all the other District 14-AAA West Zone schools besides Kerrville. Tuesday Dishman took the mound to twirl Tivy into the ranks of the defeated. He two-hit the Antlers and had a no-hitter, going over the first five 'frames. By virtue of Dishman's dandy the Coyotes took over undisputed second place and kept the Hill Country crew within catching distance in the Western division chase. Area Regional ists After Dishman made his decision Uvalde still had an ace in the hole. He's Don Lee, the talented Coyote pole vaulter. Lee vaulted 14' 2 J /2" last Saturday at San Antonio to qualify with one of the top ten heights and is a good bet to do well in Buccaneer Stadium this Brackettville gets into the Regional limelight today NO\rV A&I GOLFER. and Friday when Diane Koch unpacks her racquet in ^ • _ —^^ ^ ••-» Brenham and Del Rio's Regional hopes are on the tall shoulders of Wildcat golfer Cy Gates.

On those two nights the Queen City's other Regional invaders, the track youngsters, have their place under the moon in Corpus. The sprint relay team of Tommy Ratliff, Gerald Land, Albert Garcia and Dennis Rowland plus long jumper John Spears will have at it. The busiest lad will be Rowland, the Queen City Comet, who'll have to turn on his after-burner three times. Once on a quick leg of the 440-yard baton passing bit and twice in the 100 and 220 yard solo dashes. Edict Doesn't Affect Amistad TIGER TRACKSTERS—Left to right are Joe Rose, Grover Neuman, Rickey Goodloe and Mario Jaso with Gil Castro posed in the foreground. These five track team members will represent Brackett High School in the Regional Meet at Brenham Friday. Tiger track coach Gerry Turnbow and the boys will leave Brackettville late this evening for the long trip to the South Central Texas site. Former Wi/deaf In LSC Tourney They're Off annual Spring road with Race eight Saturday opens the two-week Meet at Sonora and gets on the race events starting at 1:30 p.m. The feature of Saturday's session are the trials for the West Texas Futurity which features an estimated $30,000 purse. Last year Miers Art owned by Sonoran W.L.. Willie M.iers^von that keep the glory on the home battlefiem?*^ This year the stall applications have been pouring into Sonora and Joe D. Ross, stall superintendent, says that | much interest has been shown earlier this spring than ever before. He also said that a number of Paint horses have been registered in the Thoroughbred events and several Appaloosas have inked stall blanks. Long and short races will -dot the Sonora program each of the two . weekends. * On Sunday trial heats for the West Texas Derby will highlite the card. This year's race meet has a special honoree in 84-year-old "Uncle Elmer" Crumbley who "never misses a meet — or almost never." "Uncle Elmer" has only one demerit for absenteeism. He was hospitalized in 1970 for burns on his legs and they wouldn't let him walk to the track. But this year he has been helping Dub Wall pull weeds and in shaping . up the track for Saturday's grand opening. Add Five Add to our Area Regionalists these five lads: Joe Rose, Grover' Neuman, Ricky Goodloe, Mario Jaso and Gil Castro of the Brackett High School track team. Coach Gerry Turnbow will have the first four on the mile relay team, Castro in the mile run and Rose in the intermediate hurdles and long jump besides Jaso in the quarter-mile dash. This quintet performs in Brenham tomorrow. Add One Besides being designed to make the Queen City look more regal the all-out clean up set for next week will serve another purpose. Back yards, if there is a rock pile,, trash pile, stacked lumber, tree stumps or other debris^ close at hand made a great cover for snakes. ~" . Ridding the area of such litter cuts off the hiding and feeding sites for the reptiles. Springtime is the emergency "hour" for these creatures who come from winter dens to share the warm sunshine and outdoors with you, me, campers, hikers and picnickers. The city-wide clean-up will lessen the chances of an oversupply of reptiles and heighten your outdoor security. That's 30. I Scoreboard Ivan Lawson, former Del Rio High School golfer and current freshnrSn at Texas A&I, Kingsville, will play on the Javelins link squad Friday and Saturday when the Lone Star Conference bids for the league crown on the Riverside Golf Club in San Angelo. Lawson, who not only played fine golf as an underclassman for the Wildcats also served as student-coach in his senioryearatDelRio under head coach Joe Brown. Brown says of Lawson, "Ivan is a fine player with a dedication to the game. The fact that he has made the A&I team attributes to his determination. Lawson is only a freshman at the Kingsville school and we expect fine things from him over the next three years." The LSC tournament opens in San Angelo at 8 a.m. Friday and winds up with a second 18-hole session on Saturday. The Javelinas were conference golf champions in 1969 and dropped to a sixth place finish in last year's meet. Lawson plays with Andy Luddeke of Cuero, Tommy Jackson of Dallas Pinkston, Larry Aduddell from Bishop and Karl Fuchs from New Braunfels. Southwest Texas is the defending champion but tough competition is expected from the field which includes A&I, Stephen F. Austin, Sul Ross, Sam Houston, East Texas State, McMurry, Howard Payne and Tarleton State. By CARL GUYS News-Herald Staff Club de Caza y Pesca de Monterrey at Azucar (Sugar Lake) reported that the April 16-June 30 closed season in Mexico for black bass applies only to the Mexican side of Falcon Reservoir. International Boundary and Water Commission at Del Rio's Amistad Dam reported that the Mexican side of Big Friendly is not affected by the edict from Mexico City. Associated Press reports said that Falcon Lake lodge operator, W.N. Ballard of Zapata "thinks the season was closed partially to eliminate some "problems" concerning illegal fishing practices on the Mexican side. Ballard said that for three years fishermen from both sides of the big border reservoir have used illegal traps to catch small fish for stocking in other lakes. Ballard's comments also hinted that the. Mexican government has "allowed" the trapping to some extent and that he believes this will be halted after the closed season terminates. Originally the edict from MexicoflCity stated the reason for the 2'/2 month closed season was to "permit the fish to spawn." Reports from the Falcon Area indicate that the bass have already completed their annual general spawn. Mexican Game Warden Pedro Gonzalez of Nuevo Guerrero reports the closed season on Falcon might be lifted before the June 30 date. Amistad Lake on the Mexican side also became the target area for Mexican game and fish officers last year and several illegal netting camps were broken up. Current reports by members of the Amistad Bass Club indicate that "some instances of illegal netting still occur on the Mexican side of Amistad Lake."
