A special mobile that resembles a huge tricycle will transport the mound, which will rest on the Astrodome's new synthetic grass infield. Astros President Roy Hofheinz said the mound makes it possible to convert the baseball field for other events without having to destroy the mound. "We merely bring the mobile in over the mound, hook some clamps around the steel base of the mound, jack it up and haul off for storage," Hofheinz said. Announcement of the Astrodome's new synthetic grass was made Saturday by the Astros and Chemstrand Co., developers of the product. this athletic tering any sport in which he decided to compete. Rockhold was the type of athlete that was good enough to go to the University or Texas on a baseball scholarship, switch to track and turn in a sub-10 second 100 yard dash and play tournament golf well enough to win several major tournaments and record Ihree holes-in-one. Now that his playing days are over, except for a daily jog or two around the track. Rockhold's athletic thrills come in the way of winning track meets, of which he is also a past master. Aside from winning the state meet, which he has done twice, finishing second four times, his biggest thrill is derived from winning the annual Robert E. Lee Relays, which he has accomplished 11 times. Saturday Rockhold tries for the 12th time as the 25th annual REL Relays are reeled off in its usual blue-ribbon fashion, drawing only the elitf cream of the crop from thf gulf coast area. silver anniversary running of the Relays has drawn the name of 11 schools, representing 220 individual tracKmen. Applications are accepted through Tuesday night and the response is expected to even outdraw last year's group of approximately 500 individuals. As in years draws nothing past, the meet but the area's finest in all events, and where the 220 dash battle between San Jaeinto's Conley Brown and Port Arthur's Dale Bernauer was the headliner event in last i year's meet, which saw Spring 'Branch Memorial nudge out the Ganders for top honors, the SSO dash is expected to be the most heated battle in 1956. Memorial's Dave Martin has turned in the area's best in the half mile event with a 1:55.4 Dueling with Martin for top REL honor will be Sam Houston's John Carey, turning the two laps in 1:56.4. A close mile relav try by Memorial (3:21.8), Lamar (3:23.1) and Sam Houston (3:23.1) is expected to be another blue-chip event. The hometown Ganders will hinge their hopes heavily on the outcome of their 44-yard relay team of junior Kenny Fenelon, junior Billy Littlefield and seniors Dwight Denson and Bill Askey. The Gander foursome has turned in the area's best in the event with a 42.3. Another big duel will come in the hurdles events, between REL's Littlefield and Houston Robert E. rington. Lee's Richard Har-FOR TS Harrington records the area's best final time of 14.9 in the 120-yard high hurdles, with Littlefield clocking off the same thing in the preliminaries of the rain-swept Lamar Redskin Relays. Harrington has a 19.7 in the ISO-yard low hurdles and Littlefield clicked off a prelim time of 19.9 in the same Redskin meet. The mile run and the si>rint medley relay should turn out as strong as any of the other vents, with Lamar's Manley Roe turning in a 4:23.6 in the mile medley team clocking in at 3:3S.2. Texas Oty's Maurice Mascaro has a 21.8 mark in hhe 220-yard dash and will open the meet as the ravorite in this event. Relay spectators may get their biggest thrill out of watch- the Northshore's probable state champion pole vaulter Dickie Phillips try to grab the record away from defending REL Relay champ Butch Daniels of Aldine. .,_, "Northshore wrote us and 3 asked for an invitation," Rock- hold said. "So I guess they'll be here." Phillips vaulted 14-9 last weekend at Aldine's Jetero Relays and those gathered in Baytown Saturday could see a vault of 15-foot. Daniels soared 13-6 last year as a junior to shatter the previous meet record of 130. This was one of four Relay records that tumbled in '65. Houston Lamar has listed the strongest "outside" team in numbers with 34 entrants. Houston Waltrip has entered 24 participants, Milby. Aldine, Westbury and Bellaire have entered 22 apiece. Houston Sterling has entered 20, Santa Fe (Aha Loma) 19. La Marque 15, Smiley 13 and Orange eight. The Gander charge for what they hope to be the grabbing of their 12th Relay crown begins at 1 p.m. with the preliminaries, the finals opening at 4 p.m. Saturday. Coronation of the Relay Queen will take place at 7:15 p.m. and Houston television personality Chris Chandler will present the queen. 'tis no blarney...
