Miss Smith won the event. (NEA Teiephoto) Hall stars as Twins nip By United Press International Jimmie Hall is too young to know and too good to care liow baseball's sophomore jinx started. He docs think, however, thai a .345 batting average is proof Uiat it's a lotta bunk. Also that he and fellow muscleman Harmon Killebrew, Bob Allison & Co., are going to make the Minnesota Twins mighty lough to get along with tliis season. Jimmie, who set an American League rookie record o£ 33 homers last season, was a bit off in his timing when the current campaign started. He went 3-for-18 and even Manager Sam Mele wondered whether rival pitchers had discovered a crucial weakness. But then tlie six-foot, 27-ycar- old native of Belmont, N.C., regained his timing, to go off on a 7-for-ll "tear." Never Looked Better Jimmie never looked better IJian Tuesday when he tied the ; score with a ninth-inning homer ,; and won it with a bases-fiUcd > lOth-inning single as the Tmns ; scored a 9-8 victory over the Cleveland Indians. Hall's lead. off homer in the ninth came af- tcr a homer by Johnny Ro- mano gave the Indians the lead and his game-winning single " off Gary Bell came after three ^ walks filled the bases. Rich ^ Rollins also homered for the ; Twins wliile Romano had two • homers and Al Smith and Leon Wagner one each for the Indians. 5 Dick Stuart's grand slam 5 homer gave the Boston Red Sox a 6-4, 11-inning triumph - over the Baltimore Orioles, tlie • Kansas City Athletics downed ^ the Detroit Tigers, 5-1, and the [ Los Angeles Angels nipped the : Washington Senators, 21, in : other American League action. : The Twins routed Dick Don• ovan in 4 1-3 iimings and carried a 7-2 lead into the seventh but Wagner's three-run ; homer enabled the Indians to tie the score. Bill Dailey, who pitched the last three innings, was Minnesota's winner. Stuart doubled home the tying run in the ninth inning and connected for his grand slam in the 11th off Dick Hall, relieving Stu Jlillcr who had issued two walks and a single around a fielder's choice to fill the bases. Beneficiary of the blow was Bob Heffner, fourth Red Sox hurler. who worked only 2-3 of an inning. Diego Segui pitched a five- hitter for his first win behind an eight-hit Kansas City attack that included a homer, double and single and thre RBI's by Ed Charles. Frank Lary was kayoed in 41-3 innings and suffered his second straight setback for the Tigers. Shutout relief pitching by Don Lee and Dean Chance through the last 4 2-3 innings portected the Angels' one-run lead brought about the Lee Thomas' run-scoring single. Chance took over in the ninth after Bill Skowron doubled and retired the final three batters. Rigney hopes to parlay Lees info double win TREASURE HOUSE Your unused furniture or appliances will find a ready market through Classified Ads. LOS A N G E L E S (UPI) Manager Bill Rigney hoped to parlay pitcher Bob Lee tonight to Don Lee's winning perform ance of Tuesday night for a Los Angeles "double" over the Washington Senators. The Angels have yet to put together two wins in a row this season but Rigney was hopeful that Bob Lee could pick up where he left off last Saturday and come through with his first major league victory. Carl B 0 u 1 d i n, 0-1, is Bob Lee's mound rival. The tall, husky. Bob Lee worked 10 innings against the Cleveland Indians in his first start for the Angels and for 6 1-3 innings did not give up a hit. He left the game with the score tied 1-1 and reliefer Paul Foytack won the game in the 11th. Don Lee scored his first win of the season in relief of starter Barry Latman Tuesday night, although he also needed help in Terrific Inyo- Mono trout opener looms About 100,000 fighting rainbow trout of catchable size are being planted by the Department of Fish and Game this week in roadside lakes and streams of the Inyo-Mono area to do battle with anglers in what promises to be a terrific opening of the general trout season this Saturday, May 2. Current water conditions are excellent, and if the weather remains good and winds- stay down the DFG predicts hot action throughout the opening weekend. Sweetening the pot in many of the waters will be good numbers of lunkers, resulting from holdovers from last year and surplus 2-3 pound broodfish planted since the end of the 1963 season. DFG fisheries personnel will be checking creels at several key spots: at the East Walker River, to get an idea of the carryover of Massachusetts brown trout catchables stocked in 1963; at Bridgeport Reservoir and TK'UX Lakes to check the kokanee catch, measure the fish and collect scales; at June Lake, to watch for marked trout planted as part of the DFG's Coldwater Reservoir Study; and, of course, at Crowley Lake, to measure angler use, estimate total catch, and determine the contribution to the catch of two groups of marked trout. • A pre-season sampling by the DFG revealed that Crowley is loaded with trout. Nearly 30 tons were harvested on the opening weekend last year, and the DFG says this figure may by equaled or exceeded this coming weekend—weather permitting. Advice to anglers: bone up on the 1963 angling regulations and buy your fishing* license and stamps before you leave home. Inyo-Mono license agents invariably nm out of licenses and stamps on opening weekend. the ninth from Dean Chance to preserve a 2-1 win. It was Don Lee's second ap pearance in two nights, the Ari zona-bom hurler having worked briefly the night before in re lief of Ken McBride, but the consecutive appearances did not appear to bother him. The Angels were able to score only two runs early in the game despite collecting a dozen base hits off four Washington pitchers as they left the same num her stranded. "We got hits to score six runs," Rigney commented. "A couple of them, especially Billy Moran's long single in the first, might have gone for home runs had the ball traveled a little better." The game was saved from possibly being rained out when an • afternoon shower stopped two hours before the start of the contest. But as a result of the late rain, the smallest crowd of the Angels' first home stand, 2,237 fans, turned out. Rigney had praise for both Don Lee and Chance for their relief efforts. Chance went to the bullpen after having been sidelined with a blistered finger for a week. The lean righthand cr came into the game after Bill SkowTon had led off the ninth with a double. "Chance was as cool and collected as I've ever seen him," Rigney said. "It was like two years ago when he used to come in late in the game to pull a tight one out for us." Chance faced only three men as he retired the side to save the victory for Don Lee. Major League Leaders National League G. AS R. H.

Anglers warned to use care at Salten Sea Anglers planning to fish from a boat in the Salton Sea were urged today by the Department of Fish and Game to keep a wary eye on the weather and head for shore fast if it gets rough. Checking over recent news of tragedies and near-tragedies at the Sea, the DFG commented that people don't seem to realize how dangerous it is for boaters when high winds are blowing. Waves six to eight feet high can build up in a short Ume when the weather is blust ery, and even larger boats can get into trouble. A 20-footer was capsized by high waves recently and two persons drowned. Two others were saved only by fast action of nearby law officers. DFG Warden Jack Bedwell, who lives at Salton Sea, last month rescued two Rialto anglers from death in the cold, choppy waters, hauled them aboard his patrol boat, salvaged then: gear, and got them ashore. He then had to race back to the aid of a man and two boys whose motor had conked out, leaving their boat drifting helplessly with the wind. Bedwell towed them to the safety of the beach. Fishing at Salton Sea is improving as the water warms, Swim boosters to meet at 8 Thursday night A boosters for swimming meeting will be held Thursday at 8 p.m. atf the Security First National Bank community room. This is the first regular meeting. Officers are slated to be elected and by-laws will be dis cussed. The object of the Booster's For Swimming Group will be to organize, promote and publicize swimming. Anyone interested is invited to attend. Shoe may put foot in it with Hill Rise Giant gridders go to San Juan NEW YORK (UPI) — Y. A. Tittle, Del Shofner and Don Chandler will head a group of New York Giant football players who depart for Puerto Bico today for a government sponsored "Sports Mission to San Juan." Several groups will be sent to Puerto Rico through the month of May to hold athletic clinics at schools. the DFG said, and in calm weather the angling is hard to beat. A creel check at the South end of the Sea last week showed anglers averaging better than one corvina per angler hour and reeling in an average of 2.6 corvina per fisherman. LOUISVILLE, Ky. — (NEA) -rBiU Shoemaker put himself on the spot by selecting Hill Rose as his mount for the Ken tucky Derby on May 2, after Shoe had ridden Northern Dancer to victory in the two $100,000 sUkes, the Flamingo at Hialeah and the Florida Derby at Gulfstream Park. If Shoe wins with the favored Hill Rise, he'll probably receive minimum of credit. If he loses, he'll hear a chorus of "I told you so's." They are still kidding me about passing up the mount on the 1942 Derby-winnmg Shut Out I was Miorking for Greentree Stable and had a choice be tween Devil Diver and Shut Out. Devil Diver hurt himself slight ly before the Derby, and didn't [nm in Keeneland's Blue Grass SUkes, won by Shut Out. I worked both horses at Churchill Downs before the Derby and trainer John Gaver| begged me to ride Shut Out in the Derby. I thought Devil Diver worked pretty good, though, and chose to ride him! You can guess how I felt when Devil Diver finished sixth, while Wayne Wright won with Shut Out. The same thing might have happened in 1948. I was riding Eddie Arearo Citation and was very happy with him. But Coaltown won the Blue Grass Stakes very impressively and I began to worry a UtUe if I had the better of the two Calument Farm colts. I cornered Ben Jones in Louisville before the Derby, and asked the late, great trainer the 3100,000 question. 'Eddie," he said, "CitaUon can beat Coaltown doing anything." As usual, Ben was right. Cita­ tion beat Coaltown by almost four lengths. Getting back to this year's Derby, and Shoemaker's selection of Hill Hiss as his mount, it can be recalled Shoe never had too" many good words to say about Northern Dancer, even when that colt was winning the Flamingo and Florida Derby. I never got along well with Nasbau, and bad to fight him all the way in most of his races. I expressed myself along these lines one day to^ Sunny Jim Fitzsimmons who' brained the great horse. "Eddie, Nashua's got an awful lot of 'ones' (victories) next to his name." Still, whatever the reason, I respect Shoemaker's judgment. If he got off Northern Dancer to ride Hill Rise, I have to go along with him. A final word of caution. In the last 16 years, only three favorites have won the Derby When they run for the Roses, you've got to be prepared for the unexpected. Don Smith signs OTTAWA, Ont.
