DEL RIO (TEXAS) NEWS-HERALD, Friday, Apfil 23, 1971-5 The Del Rio High School u-« "Red Dog Express" engineered th by Dennis Rowland, the Queen b\-. City Comet, and fired up by Gerald Land, Albert Garcia and k Tommy Ratliff is ready to roll. L This shorthaul running crew I By CARL GUYS Minor Major Problem The Minor division of the Val Verde County Little League has a MAJOR problem this year. Dick Wood, official of the area LL told the News-Herald this morning, "We have only three men committed to coaching positions for the Minor League and we need at least eight. Would you kindly jnvite high school boys, other single men, or those that are married and have no children of their own to come join in the coaching fun for these youngsters?" Wood pointed out that he had "one father and two childless GI's from Laughlin AFB on the list." Th5 - s horthaul running crew The Minor league plans eight teams and the tryouts fin S?d fteta JtaSn mn are for 9 a.m. Saturday at the Memorial Elementary School ground. Mrs. Wood, secretary for the WCO Little League this year, joined her husband in the conversation regarding the big problem. ' She said, "I have a whole stack of registration cards, well over a hundred, and we expect a great turnout tomorrow morning. We need fathers, friends, relatives or any other interested persons to help with the coaching of these eight teams. The Minor League will play a two-month schedule operating on a couple of games per week. I'm sure enough adults will show up Saturday but my husband (Dick) is rather worried." Saturday's Minor League tryouts are for all boys who registered for the Little League and turned in. cards last week. Those youngsters who were assigned spots on the Major League teams announced in the News-Herald Wednesday will receive practice assignments from their respective managers. The test session is for the hold-overs from the original group and starts at 9 a.m. Umpire Session Ernesto Zamudio, president of the Del Rio Rams, dialed to say that the committee formed from the Ram organization to afford season long umpires for the local Little League will meet Friday, April 30, at 7:30 p.m. in the San Felipe High School library. Zamudio said the committee will discuss Little League rules and methods of play to "better equip the umpiring slaff for this year's play." The Ram prexy also said that "any interested high school, serviceman or other adult would be most welcome to attend the meeting and join the staff of officials." The annual offering by the Rams guarantees the Val Verde County Little League of game officials. This is strictly a non-paying proposition and purely a community youth activity on the part of the Rams. And like Zamudio stated, "We like to take a part in the local baseball program for these tender teenagers. Baseball is a major part of our club and we'll do all we can to supply qualified umpires. Our staff members are not necessarily members of the Del Rio Rams. We welcome any adults from high school age up to officiate on our staff." ., Alert Check the News-Herald's sports sheets Sunday for an announcement of another "first" by the Del Rio Wildcat Booster Club. President Fred Brien told me this yawning that he had a "release in the making now that would prove interesting, surprising and uniquely novel." Brien's bomb will be burst happily with the dawning of the Sabbath News-Herald. Femme Inroads Coming along the same time that the report from Brenham and Blinn College told of Brackettyille's Diane Koch and her triumphant first round Regional tennis match is the Eve Challenge Cup release for women golfers. Emitting from New York's Madison Avenue golfing news office of Edward Gottlieb and Associates we learned that a pair of Texas gals lead the $10,000 Eve event. Sandra Haynie of Dallas and her co-citizen Kathy Whitworth are running one-two in.the challenge cup Wildcat Express Ready to Roll In Regional Track Test Tonight Thursday evening over the Wildcat Stadium cinders and left out of Del Rio for the long haul to Corpus Christ! and Buccaneer Stadium at 10 o'clock this morning. Their destination is the site of the Regional run tonight and Saturday night. Coach Walter Levermann and his sprint relay team have completed hours of test runs around the Wildcat Stadium Red Dog oval and John Spears, the sophomore long jumper, has leaped over great gobs of ground in the infield in this week's windup workouts. All to prep for about 72 seconds and 20 feet of time and space at the Regional meet, some 300 miles from Del Rio. The baton-passing relay unit aims at the Del Rio school Rockets Ground Eagles SAN ANTONIO-The 32-AAAA district baseball race became tighter than a warped drum Thursday night after both loop leaders were upset to create a three-way tie at the top. Eagle Pass was upended by the Kennedy Rockets, 6-3, and Fox Tech dropped a 3-2 thriller to Edgewood. The fallen leaders and the Eagle conqueror, Kennedy, are all knotted at the head of the class with 7-3 records. The Rockets exploded for five runs in the second inning to hand the Eagles and Jaime Chahin the loss and Edgewood used the second stanza for all three Red Raider runs in dumping the Buffs.£fftttt&. Del Rio darted to the Regional sprint relay victory. This year's addition, Gerald Land, has rapidly risen to a first rate leg on the team to again make the Queen City crew a Region IV favorite. Rowland also established himself as the "boy to beat" this year in the Buccaneer blltzkreig with a season-long string of century and furlong victories in the solo events. Del Rio's Spears is a dark horse in the long jump. Going to Corpus on "borrowed time" the sophomore soarer seeks 20-feet-plus tonight. Spears got new life and a shot at Regional N H sports honors when Uvalde's Mike Dish man ditched his opportunity in the long jump in favor of pitching for the Coyote baseball team. Dishman was District 14-AAA runnerup and Spears was the show place finisher. The Wildcat jumper will have to exceed 22' 2V6 A if he is to break the Del Rio High School mark set by Partin last year. Teamwise at this year's Shotgun Sets Fight in L.A. UVALDE-Oscar "Shotgun" Albarado, the rapid rising welterweight of Uvalde will meet undefeated Armando Muniz of Los Angeles in a 10-round fight on May 6 at the L.A. Olympic Auditorium. Albarado, who has aspirations to become the world welter title-holder, won his last outing last Friday. The Honey Capital boxer took a 10-round decision over Franke Lewis 1>efore a good crowd including a Uvalde delegation. Regional the Wildcats are pretty thin with only four events among their quali f i cations. The Fredericksburg Battlin' Billies, a strong, many-faceted crew from the Hill Country, loom as the "favorites to cop .team honors at Corpus for Class AAA schools. Get an extraordinary loan when you want to put a little life into your budget! in' ENTERS SEMlFINALS-Brackett High School's Diane Koch advanced to the semi-finals of Region IV Class B tennis in Brenham Thursday afternoon with 6-1, 6-1 straight set wins over Donna Stapp of Florence. Miss Koch, enters the secpnd round Regional play this afternoon against Diane Marek of Wallis. Miss Marek drew a firsti round bye. The Regional meet is being conducted on the Blinn College courts and will windup Saturday morning with the championship matches. She is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Koch of Brackettville. She won the district title last week in Uvalde. Diane is a senior student and is the current Miss Kinney County. Rams to Visit Pear sal I Sunday Dierker Stops Chicago, 6-1 The Del Rio Rams will visit Pearsali to play the Cardinal at 2 p.m. in. Maverick By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS National League East Division This classic event for the Ladies Professional Golf Association swings into high gear this weekend with the action in Miami and follows with the Civitan Open at Glen Lakes CC course in Big D, April 30-May 2. When the tour is all over in the fall, the golfing gal with the highest number of points will bag five grand and the sterling silver Eve Challenge Cup. Haynie leads with 21% and Whitworth is an extremely close runnerup with 20. Derby Deluged Not too long ago when the ill-fated Hoist The Flag was winning from here to yonder there was chatter around the Big Apple that the annually famous Kentucky Derby couldn't draw flies. Before breaking a leg and eliminating himself from further racing Hoist The Flag was laying 'em in the shade by 15 lengths or so in a breeze.He scared off all the opposition but one or two and the Kentucky Classic took on the prospectus of a three or four horse match race. Now with the great bay son of Tom Rolfe-Wavy Navy by War Admiral out of the picture a host of horses are singing "My Old Kentucky Home." The Derby has suddenly turned into an event matching the rush to a bargain basement clearance sale. It is impossible, to get a starting gate with more than 22 stalls stretched across the Churchill Downs track and there is a possibility this year of running a two division Derby. ^,-11 The 97th heat of the renowned Kentucky Derby will be run on May 1 with no apparent "odds-on favorite this year since The Flag fell. On next Thursday, April 29, the final field will be set and from here you can pick the winner out of a band of multi-possibles, like say — Jim French. , . East Division Baltimore Wash.

The Rams will return to Roosevelt Park for a game with the Acuna Pirates Thursday at 7:30. CHICAGO (AP) — Pitcher Larry Dierker of the Houston Astros may be on his way towards matching his 20-victory season of two years ago. The powerful 24-year-old right-hander Thursday made his first start in seven days a five-hit, 6-1 triumph over the ChicagoCubs, after expecting a free-scoring game in the As- tros'road finale at chilly Wrigley Field. "Usually I'm wild on a seventh-game start, but I had good stuff even though I pretty nearly came out of the game in the ninth," said Dierker, who now has a 2-0 record in four starts. Dierker held the Cubs to a pair of singles anff a' two-bag- ger and had a snutOAit wrapped up until the Cubs suddenly tilled the bases with none out in the ninth. Astro manager Harry Walker was on the verge of yanking Dierker after Glenn Beckert's leadoff double, a walk to Billy Williams and Ron Santo's base- loading single. "Dierker talked me out of pulling him,"said Walker. "He told me 'just give me one more batter, I'll get him out.'" Dierker did just that on Joe Pepitone's sacrifice fly which scored Beckert with the only Cub run. Then Dlerker got Jim Hlekman on a foul pop and struck out rookie Hal Breeden to end the game. er his long layoff and 44-degree weather. "But it worked out the other way with the in-blowing wind helping my fast ball," said Dierker who struck out six and walked only two. The Astros returned home to open a long home stay Friday night against the Montreal Expos with a 4-5 record on their first road trip. "That Dome will be home sweet home and a chance to thaw out," said Walker. "I've been shivering from cold ever since we left home."
