Tigers Win Again; Ford Collects! 9th FAN FARE By JIM HACKLEMAN Associated Press Sport* Writer They're calling Charlie Drcssen the Quiet Man — but his Detroit Tigers are making the loudest noise in baseball. Hardly a word has been heard from Dressen. one of the game's angry old men, since he succeed- i'i| Bob Schcffing as manager of the slump-ridden Tigers on June 18 The normally outspoken veteran with a penchant for controversy has been the epitome of decorum. The Tigers have been roaring. They won their seventh straight Wednesday for their best streak of tlie year, nipping the Los Angeles Angels 2-f In the past two weeks, Detroit has taken 12 of 14 in a climb from ninth place to fifth in the American League. Under Drcssen the Tigers are 39-30, compared to their 24-36 mark under Scheffing . Whitey Ford became the AL's first 19-garre winner as the front- running New York Yankees scored three times on wild pitches by Earl Wilson and downed Boston 4-1. Also in the AL — the Chicago ^VIlite Sox broke a tie with idle Minnesota for second place, sweeping a doubleheader from Cleveland, 8-3 and 3-1 behind Juan Pizarro and Eddie Fisher; and homers by Jackie Brandt and Jerry Adair in support of Milt Pappas' three-hit pitching led Baltimore over Kansas City 3-1. Washington had the day off, along with the Twins.

Local, Area Athletes on College Rosters Several Southwest Kansans are listed on 1963 football rosters at various Kansas colleges and universities. Receiving the most r a v es among the area athletes has been Mike Johnson, former Garden City High halfback star now atj Kansas University. A sophomore,; Johnson netted 184 yards in 36 carries in two games as a freshman. He flashed good blocking' and tackling ability and demonstrated that he could play any position in the backfield. This season he will probably be the Jayhawkers top kickoff man and number two punter. Also on the KU roster is another former Garden C i t i a n, Richard Masoner, who teamed with Johnson in high school. Though acting as quarterback in high school, Masoner has been j switched to end for Coach Jack Mitchell's Jayhawks. Another recent performer for Garden High- is found on the rest-j er at Fort Hays State. Guy Martin, a senior letterman, will work as an end on this season's Tiger' unit. Jim Elland, who played for both the local high school arid the junior college now residing in Hutchinson, is a letterman tackle prospect at Southwestern-at Winfield. Other Southwest Kansans in-j •elude: Hugh Binns, junior halfback at Fort Hays State. A junior college transfer from HutcMnson, Binns played high school ball at Scott City. • John Elliot, end at Kansas State University from Ulysses. Dave Harmon, letterman end at Southwestern from Johnson. Don Krebs, letterman tackle at Kansas State from Scott City. Ron Lindburg, freshman guard at Foit Hays Stale from Sublette.

(AP) — The season for hunting mourning doves, rails and gallinules in Kansas opens Sunday. The dove season closes Oct. 30, and that for rails and gallinules Oct. 20. The Kansas Forestry, Fish and Game Commission says doves are plentiful and the sora rail is relatively abundant in and around marsh areas, but gallinules are somewhat scarce. The bag and possession limits are 10 and 20 for doves. The limit both bag and possession, is 25 for sora rails and 15 for other rails and gallinules. Since doves are migratory birds repeating shotguns must be plugged to hold no more than three shells when hunting them.

Cryptoquip: HYDROFOIL CARRIED OFF HER TEST CRAFT AIRILY Motorcyclists converge on Garden City Airport Monday for the 'biggest attraction of its type in the city's history. It's a special, one-day card of cycle drag, and road races, fully sanctioned -by the nation's governing body, American Motorcycle Assn. of Columbus, Ohio. A special track of about two miles' length has been laid out at the airport, and some of the nation's top motorcyclists will be on hand. Included are scads of present and past national champs at varying distances. How did the event come about? Why was Garden City chosen for tha Monday show? Acutally, the event here is a segment of the great annual get- together at Dodge City. Road races for motorcyclisfs from throughout the nation will be run there Saturday and Sunday. The show here will be the conclusion of the national rally at Dodge, and will attract the same spoedy machines and riders. Dodge is one of the nation's oldest motorcycling hotspots, with national competition there dating back to 1914. Only letups came during Uie gasoline- lean years of World War II. In yeeri put, the races that will be run her e Monday had been at the old Ford County Airport. But that property has been sold, so the old "home" had to be moved elsewhere. Garden Cjtv was selected as the new location for that part of t h e program. One of ihe nation's leading cycle enthusiasts was a Garden City visitor Tuesday. He is Dave Clymer of Los Angeles, Calif. Clymer publishes some 200 magazines and periodicals on cycles, hot rods, and the like. He discussed the Monday program here. "It's a rare opportunity Garden City folk will have," he said, "to see some of the world's finest motorcycles and riders in action." He noted that the finely-tuned motorcycles which will go through their paces here will come from many foreign countries — including Japan, Italy, England, France, and Germany. Totaled together, they will represent hundreds of thousands of s of fi n e equipment. The two-mile course laid out at the airport resembles an elongated paper clip when viewed from the air. To test riding skills of competitors, however, it lias numerous sudden severe twists and turns. "If* something like the slalom course used in skiing," Clymer explains. "It tests the riders' ability to make quick turns and still control their machines at 'high speed." The course ends in a straightaway of about a mile in length. In that stretch, riders may zoom up to as high as 150 miles per hour. The straightaway is the «ame apron used by the Galla- hads Car Club here for its frequent drag races. Monday's action starts at 8 a.m. with the quarter-mile drag races. Cycles entered in that event may hit as fast as 140150 miles per hour briefly from a standing start.

That race will probably have about 100 entries, and at least 10 national champs have already indicted they will enter. One is Tony Woodman of Hasbrouck Heights, N. J. He recently won the 40-mile races for 250cc experts at Laconia, N. II. Another is Buddy Stubbs of Hollflowcr, Calif. He's the national amatuer champ in his class at 100 miles. One of the top entries is Al Guntcr of Los Angeles, 10 times a national champ at different distances. Only two weeks ago, he won the national 8-mile crown at Ascot Park, Calif. Also entered is Dick Mann of El Cerrilo, Calif., eight times a national champion. Hoth he and Gunlcr ride British-made USA machines. Feature event of the day, however — the main event — comes at 3 p.m. That's the gruelling 100-mile Grand Prix. It's for cycles with engines of 45 cubic inches and under: for both the pros and amatuers. It will attract the same riders as the day's first race, plus many others. Total field will probably be a whopping 200 riders. These are lh<> bi^ "jobs" — and they hit fabulous speeds of up to 150 miles per hour down DID .straightaway. The course here is all concrete.

It wns u n u s u a I to have such n strange weather pal| torn in mid-August, but there has been nothing normnl about the weather this year. We were glad to get the break from hot weather, although we will take the heiil over the cold anytime. U i.s n good thing none of us have any control over the weather or we would really mess II ui>. Most of us here In mid America do n lot of complaining alioul our weather, but. we doubt if anyone' any greater variety. Certainly It is not monotonous as wo have the four seasons well spaced. II. is n great blessing to he alile 10 put up with some winter weather, knowing (hat spring is just mound the corner with all of Its fragrance and beauty. The same is true of our hot weather times. We know that in a fe.« short weeks Mother Nature will send the cool air in. U i.s strange in a way, that feeling you have as the seasons change. We could still have some hot weather in September and likely will h.i\c. However, this cool spell wiids you to thinking of nights when Jack Frost will touch the leaves with his magic wand. For years now Honnie and I have been spending a week or two in Canada in September 'when the leaves start to turn. We love to fish in the north country limnighoul. the .summer months, hut our annual trip in September liar become a part of our life. It nil somo years buck when we piiidc a duck-huullnx movie til Young's Wilderness Camp near Nestor Fall, Ontario. We were so enthralled with the beauty of the country .so Impressed wilh the hunting and fishing at thnl. time of year that We made it an annual nlfnir. Now it has become a ritual with us. You can imagine how we fell when Hie cool weather moved in l.o remind us that autumn was on the wny. To accentuate the I'eel- i'lg, fl\ n mailman delivered a let- ler from Cy Young, We could hardly wait to road It. Always it's a sign thnl fall is getting elo-w when we hor.r from Cy.

Cy is one of the real oldUmers In the resort business in Ontario. He and his wife started their operation on Crow Lake some 25 or 30 years ago. However, after a few seasons they moved to their present location on Lake of (he Woods nonr Nestor Falls. While their office and home is on the main highway lending north to Kenora, I heir lodge is located on- a beimitlful island a short boat ride up the lake. The Youngs are 'wonderful poo- ple and their record in the resort business i.s an unusual one. From the days uheu Ihoir only winter transportation wns by dog sled to this present lime thai the pavrd highway from the border to Kon- ora i.s kept open year around, these fine people have catered to liunler.s and fishermen. Tholr clientele boasts repeal business of two and three generations. Grand children of oiislomor.s of years gone by now bring their children to Young's camp. Some years back Jiintnio. Gloa.son, « nephew of the Young's with 'his \\ifo, Hilda, took over Iho camp's operation and lalor bought Iho place.
