WWWBTOAY, AUGUST t§, win (AWC.T WOMBR Veeck Is Home * Hunting Still By JACK STEVENSON LOS ANGELES (AP) — President Bill Vecck is horn lunting today for a city and park in which his American League Brownies, presently of St. Louis, can play more prof itably next season. Deck's presence in Los Angeles stirred up considerable interest and some civic activity. He plans to visit San Francisco next, but said last night he doesn't know ust when, He was there two weeks ago talking with officta.s "I'm just looking at various cities which have evidenced interest in laving major league baseball," he said. "But you can't have major eagua baseball without a major league park." LA Has No Park And at present Los Angeles .does not have a park coming up to nec- sssary specifications available. Veeck's search for greener pastures has the conditional approval the American League owners ivho last spring turned down his to move to Baltimore. He confirmed reports the club presidents :old him he could transfer the Browns if and when he can prove is financially able to make the ange. But a committee of four owners it plain that it would not ipprove either Los Angeles or San 5Vancisco individually.' Owners feel laving only one club on the Pacific -oast would be a hardship travel- vise. Considering Many Veeck apparently is following the committee's instructions to -go out and get facts and then report back. Xansas City, Baltimore, Toronto, Minneapolis and St. Paul and per- Texas cities are interested in ck's transfer plans. "Any club in either major league has to have a park suitable (o such caliber of ball before It cai move," Veeck said. "Who build or owns the park isn't very im portant. The thing Is to get a bal park to offer a major league club considering a move." ,So it appears clear Veeck him self isn't planning any park buy ing. There were two possibilities in Los Angeles, buying Wrigley Field the home of the Los Angeles An gels of the Pacific Coast League, or converting the publicly-owned, 100,000-plus capacity coliseum. From Chicago, P. K. Wrigley, owner of both the Angels and the Chicago Cubs, apparently nixed the first possibility. PCL Wants League Standing "What good would our franchise and players be without a park?" He asked, "and what about our stockholders out there and our partners nl the Pacific Coasl League. Would you sell the roof off your house? I told Veeck to keep hts sports shirt on and not throw a monkey wrench into anything so intricate as baseball's machinery." The PCL is aiming at major league classification for its full circuit. Coast League President Clarence Rowland termed the, furore "all talk" but admitted the PCL wosld suffer irreparable damage if Los Angeles or San Francisco should be taken away. Arkansas Sportettes — Does Are Plentiful, SaysGFCommission By CARL BELL Associated Press Sports Writer LITTLE ROCK (AP) — Arkansas' Game and.Fjsh Commission tries to look out for the feelings of sportsmen as well as the welfare of wildlife. Were it not for that, hunters would be allowed to kill does — at least in some sections — next deer season. The commissioners themselve ippeared satisfied at their Augus neeting in Helena that, as far a he deer themselves are concerned juld be all right to perm ing does as well as buds hroughout the state. But they weren't sure the genera mblic — particularly the hunter vho can remember when Arkan as didn't have any deer—would vccept such a change. Commission Secretary T. A. Me imis recalled that when Missour ciade does legal game, landowners n that state posted their property nost commissioners agree, is ai o protect the deer. Die From Starvation What is needed in Arkansas ducational program to show the ieople that the deer supply is .dequate to stand the shooting o: .oes and that if the deer popula- on becomes too great, more ant aals will be lost from starvation iian from hunting. At the same meeting at which he Game and Fish Commission alked of the need for informing ie public, however, an attempt /as made to bar newsmen from he meeting room. This effort was ilocked by a new state law which irohiblts boards and commissions rom holding "executive" meetings f ept for discussion of personnel cters. Information Needed Some commissioners also criticil- d a North Arkansas newspaper or publishing what they described misinformed article relating 3 deer hunting. Ths commission undoubtedly ould do a better job of informing ic public if It would take greater ains to inform newspaper and adio men, whose business if in- taff and S. C.

"The real danger," .explained lelllnger, "Is to the range. After 's destroyed it takes a long time build it back." Obviously deer can't survive- •ithout sufficient range. "There's plenty of summer lod," said Dellinger. "It's the 1'inter browse that gets scarce."

Hopman Says Aussies Are Just As Good BROOKLINE, Mass. Wl — Ju when the U.S. Davis cup team masterminds were satisfied th their highly regarded Vic Seixa and Tony Trabert were nation doubles tennis cinches, Australia Harry Hopman made their bloo pressure soar. Hopman, non-playing captain his nation's Davis Cup forces, se off a verbal bombshell at Lom wood yesterday by describing h youngsters Lewis Hoad and Ke Bosewall as "every bit as good a Frank Sedgman and Ken McGrego were at their peaks two years ago. If that is true, Hoad and Rosi wall, who haven't indicated sue greatness to anybody else, woul be invincible, not only here thi week but in the Davis Cup cha lenge round in Adelaide, Australia in late December. Hopman assured doubters tha the 18-year-old Aussies finally hav got the feel of American gras courts and are determined to cap ture the National Team titles here as Sedgman and McGregor did ir 1951.

(NEA) Fltld and Stnam— Long Leader Is Best By AL McCLANE H»htn| Editor Midsummer is the time for long, fine leaden, whether you are fishing wet or dry flies for trout or bucktalls and bugs for. bass. Of course, you can't cast a large bug on a 3X leader, but most fishermen err In using leaders too heavy rather than too light. The trout flsheman often can use leaders fvom 10 to 15 feet long to advantage. I believe a long leader is better than an excessively line one. A medium-weight. 6-foot to 1'A- foot leader is usually suggested for wet-fly fishing. Wet-fly leaders ordinarily are heavier than dry-fly leaders, because the sunken leader is not seen so easily as one on or near the surface. I believe this reasoning is faulty, however, and I feel that a leader ns light as is consistent with the size of fish should be used. A No. 10 wet-fly on the end of a heavy leader is just about as lifeless as anything imaginable. The leader is so stiff that the fly has very little, if any, movement except when it is being drawn upstream. A light leader, however, allows the fly to twist, turn, and drift naturally in the wa- A light leader can be used safely with a streamer, bucktail, or spinner f conditions demand it — an admit- tedly unusual occurrence, however. As a general rule, a IX leader Is light enough for any of them, and that weight or heavier should hj used whenever possible because trout often strike these lures hard against a tight line. When a leader as light as 3X seems to be necessary, it can be used safely if the rod is kept high so the tip bends and absorbs the shock. A low rod usually is responsible for a leader broken on the strike. Dick Chapman is the only golfer who has won the amateur cham- )ionships of the U.S., Great Britain, Canada and France.
