Keane Has Same 'Great Collection' Back This Year By BOB GREEN Associated Press Sports Writer A year ago at this time Johnny Keane looked over the scene in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and said: "It's the greatest collection oi talent I've ever seen." He'll be looking over the same Teneral cast again today — a collection of talent that finished sixth — but b more likely to see tape and bandages, aches and pains, aging arms and legs. Mostly he'll see question Tiarks. And nark the biggest question of them all is the one named Mickey Mantle, the 34- j year-old Maggio successor to Joe and Lou Gehrig Di- and Reward! Reward your taste with the rich flavor of Half and Halfs. You'll like 'em fine, and that's putting .H miidly. i Babe Ruth, the man the New York Yankees must count on to '"••ad them out of the wilderness ^f the second division. Yankee regulars were due to check in for spring training today, but all the attention centered on The Switcher and his outfield mate Roger Maris. There are plenty of other questions — Can Elston Howard make a comeback at age 37? Can Whitey Ford at the samp age continue to be the stopper? — but it's on Mantle and Maris that the Yankee revival depends. Maris, plagued by a hand in- iury ? appeared in only 46 games last season and, over a three- vear period, has averaged only 92 games a season. If the Yankr r .re to rebound, the 31-yenr-olc 1 bomber must return to full-time action. Keane, who must win or be in deep, deep trouble, will save hi$ greatest concern for Mantle coming out of a hospital quired of thi by the : 50 persons state code. At Monday's hearing^ Schoenwald appeared before the coi mission and requested a n« license as an individual promoter. The commission unanimously approved the move and said the application would be submitted to Clark for a ruling which was expected today. Temporarily obscured in the legal maneuverings was the cause of the entire situation which stemmed from Clay's remarks — called "disgusting" and "unpatriotic" by Gov. Otto Kerner — following his reclassification from 1-Y to 1-A and his subsequent refusal to offer a suitable apology to the commis- sion at Friday's hearing. Clay did not appear at Monday's hearing, but Terrell was on hand complaining that his training program was being upset. Immediately following Schoenwald's request for a new license, Commission Chairman Joe Robichaux and Lou Rad- Spring Sports Has Trouble The spring slate of sports around Robert E. Lee has bad a difficult time of getting underway, with a tennis tournament, a track meet and a baseball doubleheader already being shut down in an opening effort. But the weather was expected to be tolerable enough for a baseball game against the Milby Buffaloes, Tuesday, and the Gander track team is scheduled to get its first taste of action Saturday when they visit the Spring Branch Memorial Mustang Relays. Already a doubleheader 'wjth the La Porte Bulldogs has been canceled for Don Treuhardt's baseball team and on the same Saturday, Coach Beverly Rockhold's Gander trackmen team visited a rained out Lamar Redskin Relays. Clint Nettleton's young tennis team had to forget about their opening tourney at Falfurrias due to a flu epidemic, but finally opened in San Antonio over the weekend where senior Camille Bunting and Sophomore Royce Marshall pulled an upset in the I Texas High Schools Tournameni by winni ng the girl's doubles title over a fifth and second seeded team. And even this had to be moved indoors because of heavy rains. Treuhardfs basebaliers now stand the best chance to compete, rain or no rain, while there is still a chance of Nettleton playing another indoor tourney and Rockhold bogging down ankle- deep on the cinders. "Well, the seven - day forecast says rain again Saturday," Rockhold moaned. "It looks like we may have another weekend like last weekend." But rain will hot be Rock's only foe as he once agai n tries to open the season. Discus and shot man Charles Hendricks a 440 and relay man Bill Askey will have to miss the meet to take college board exams and weightman Mike Mitchamore and 440 aad relay man Dwight Denson must take Naval Academy exams and will return from long trips just i n time to make the meet. This represents several "sure" points in the meet that the Gaib- ders gained one of their two second place finishes in last season. Treuhardt has & doubleheader with Lamar on the REL diamond Saturday, but should get in one more game this week, at South Houston Thursday, before the expected rain hits. ' ' Nettleton is scheduled for the Spring Branch Tournament on Saturday and again, the weather may control another three-sport wipe-out this weekend. ! Hook, Line & Sinker By CHESTER ROGERS The spring fishing run is here.! Dr. Herbert Duke went out the other afternoon and brought home a sack full of big bass. Of course, he had the help of George Hanson, one of his full time fishing assistants. But they caught a day when the wind wasn't too high, and literally laid the spinning lures into the brawling size bass. On the other hand, M. W. Geisendorff went to the same kind of place a few days later, but it was too windy. Geisendorff said if he had waited a day or two the wind would be down, and the bass catching would be up real high. Geisenorff, like Dr. Duke, had a helper. It was his brother-in- law, Steve Early. But the best they could do was get a little mud on their shoes. That's the extent of their catch. The wind had just muddied up the water to the point the bass couldn't see the lure. As soon as there is a report available from Bill Bradshaw, Grover Foltz, and Sam Lester, it will tell whether the spring fishing run is on or not. If that trio brags about their catch you can be sure the big bass are on the prowl. Actually, though, the March winds may stay with us a while, and if they do, the spring fish run may be over before the wind calms down enough for some new fishing records. I'm like Jim Nelson and W. P. (V^endy) Denman. We agree these winds blow every year, and sometimes these March winds blow right on through April and into May. When the wind blows like that the season's fishing is a little on the low side. There is one place where you can still catch plenty of spring time fish, though, and that is Lake Houston. Delbert Ashworth has put a new set of tires on his boat, and is planning an early trip to Lake Houston. If he can't find his favorite fishing hole full of white perch up there, he is moving ever into the Trinity River. W. F. Stratton was telling R. H. Farris the other day he had a little hard luck at Turtle Bayou. Stratton went over loaded for white perch. But the water level was down a little, and this stripped the shallow water of the fish. He didn't have time to locate the white perch on that trip, but you can be sure he will be back in there trying the first chance he gets. Joe Lagow, the famous county commissioner from Chambers County, has promised to show me a new lure to catch black bass. I just can't wait, and I'll be there just as soon as the wind lets up a little. That might be next June, but I'm bass hungry- Exhibif-Numbering— Wisconsin Law Suit Goes Back To Court MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wis- ings at the opening session Mon- •*onsin's antitrust suit again?' baseball was expected to move zienda referred all questions back fato ^ courtroom todai concerning the status of the fight to the attorney general. The commission has been withstanding political pressure throughout the state to cancel the bout. Gov. Kerner requested last Friday's hearing in order to get an apology for day's remarks. Mayor Richard J. Daley opposes having the fight in Chicago. Main Bout Inc., which includes members of day's Black Muslim religion and has the closed - circuit television rights for the fight, is reported ready to shift elsewhere should the Eight be kicked out of Illinois.

The tournament runs through Saturday night. day lasted about 10 minutes before Circuit Court Judge Elmer .V. Roller brought the combined battery of 17 legal experts into his chambers for the behind-the- scenes legal skirmishing involved in marking'exhibits. Judge Roller kept the attorneys -nine for the state and eight for the National League — at the exhibit marking in an evening session with the hope of proceeding back to the courtroom today for opening statements. Willard S. Stafford, special counsel for the state, was scheduled to make the opening statements for the prosecution, which will contend that the National League and its 10 members violated Wisconsin antitrust laws by moving the Braves from Milwaukee to Atlanta. The important case, which likely will test the entire structure of baseball and probe its special antitrust status, began minutes after 9 a.m.. before a packed courtroom holding about 150 onlookers, the 17 attorneys and a jury box filled with reporters. The only official move was an attempt by baseball's counsel to amend its answers to the state's complaint by getting before the court rulings by Georgia and Texas judges. Those judges, respectively, ordered the Braves and the league to play the 1966 season in Atlanta. The importance of the actual court trial stems from two factors — the effect it will have on the Braves' scheduled opening date in Atlanta April 12 and the far-reaching impact it may! have on baseball's antitrust status. Judge Roller has in-j structed the National League to] prepare to play in Milwaukee if so ordered by the court.
