Daily News, Friday, Sept. 17,1965 Today's Sport Parade— Long Pull Ends For First Negro Ump in Majors By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI)—Emmett L. Ashford is only five-foot- seven but today he says he feels 10 feet tall. That added stature comes from the realization of a 20- year dream that all began the same day that Branch Rickey broke baseball's color barrier by signing Jackie Robinson. Ashford, a postal clerk in Corpus Christi, Tex., at the time, made up his mind that day to become the first Negro umpire in the major-leagues. He finally made it on Wednesday when American League president Joe Cronin purchased his contract from the Pacific Coast League where he had officiated the past 12 seasons. "I don't anticipate any prob lems," says the 47-year-old Ashford. "During my years of umpiring, I'm pretty sure I've dealt with them all." First Negro Ump Ashford, who was the first Negro umpire in organized ball knew what he was up against when he first set his cap for the majors. He has known all the heartache and all the frus tration of being passed over time and time again. If he had any complaints, however, he kept them to himself and he never despaired of achieving his ultimate goal. Sometimes it was hard for him to keep his goal in sight. Like nine years ago, for example, when the stocky, colorful Ashford knew he was being don't waste them... enjoy yourself instead at Lake Santee add life to your If your weekends leave much to be desired in family fun ... perhaps it's because you've never been to Lake Santee, Here is a recreation resort that offers everything for enjoyable living.

L. president Warren Giles made a special trip to Los Angeles to speak with him and observe his work. Nothing came of it. They always said the same thing about Ashford, that he was a good, honest umpire but he had a bit of hot dog in him. He liked to show boat. Better Than Some I've seen Ashford work a number of times and I think he's as good as most of the umpires in the majors now and even better than some. I can also see where some might get the idea he likes to put it on at times because he's an umpire with a flair for his work. When he makes a call you can hear him throughout the ball park and his vigorous, decisive gestures leave no doubt whatsoever as to whether a player's safe or out. Ashford admits he patterned himself after Al Barlick. He picked an excellent model and there should be no more criticism of his choice than there is of a youngster who patterns himself after Stan Musial. The director of Municipal Sports in the Los Angeles area his first chance never been a gave Ashford back in 1941. "There has Negro umpire in our organization," the director told him. "But if you're man enough to stand the gaff, then I'm man enough to give you a chance." The man who went out on the limb for Ashford was Dudley P. Shumway and within two years Ashford was considered the outstanding umpire in the Los Angeles area. Ashford broke into organized ball in 1951 when he was given a job in the Southwest International League. His first assignment was in Mexicali, Mexico, and he did so well that he moved up the following year. His rise was meteoric except that it stalled for a long time in the PCL. Now he has finally vaulted that hurdle, but his biggest test will come next spring when he becomes the first Negro umpire ever to work in the majors. "I've had a lot of firsts as a Negro," says Ashford. "I was the first Negro to serve as president of the student body in my high school in Los Angeles; the first to serve as a cashier in one of those big supermarkets and the first to get a job as a basketball official in the Pacific Coast Conference." Ashford won't be coming in cold. Many major league managers and ball players know him and know how he works. "He's one of the most competent umpires I know," says Milwaukee's Bobby Bragan. Bragan speaks from experience. Ashford ran him once or twice while they both were in the PCL. Baseball Scoreboard (United Press International) National League W. L. Pet. GB.

The USAC board of directors voted Thursday to accept the rules committee's recommendation regarding the date which will be two years after the 3- liter formula goes into effect on the European grand prix circuit. At a meeting a year ago, the rules committee recommended making the change effective Jan. 1, 1967. However, the board of directors decided to set the date a year later if there was evidence such engines would be available. At a meeting here Wednesday, the rules committee said it found such evidence and recommended that the date be formally set. The committee said 3-liter engines are hi existence or in the planning stage in this country and there should be European engines available by 1968. The step is the'first change in size for the championship circuit since 1958 when the limit was reduced from 270 cubic inches to the present 256 cubic inches or 4.2 liters. The S-liter engine measures 183 cubic inches. The board also recommended that the Indianapolis Motor Speedway set the same engine specifications for the 500-mile race which are followed in other championship races. This would allow the use of 305 cubic inch American stock block non-overhead cam engines. Such engines are now barred from the "500" but are allowed in other championship races. Maxwell Leads In Portland Open PORTLAND, Ore. (UPI) — Former champions Jack Nicklaus and Bill Casper chased Billy Maxwell into the second round of the $45,000 Portland Open golf tournament today. Maxwell, a 36-year-old Texan now playing out Of Indianapolis, managed a 32-36-68 for the first day lead in the face of a high east wind that sent the scores of some established stars into the middle and high 70s. Nicklaus, last years winner, and PGA champion Dave Marr, along with Portland pro Bob Rosburg, were deadlocked in second place with 69. Three- time winner Casper, Dudley Wysone and Butch Baird were a stroke further behind.
