Seek Revenge with Ranked Cherokee ESTHERVILLE DAILY NEWS, THURS.,JAN.25, im p ag e 6 Midgets Clash with Braves With the cage season going into the home stretch, Estherville has an opportunity to extend its Lakes Conference mark to 6-4 when the Midgets clash with 18th-ranked Cherokee at Cherokee Friday night. The Braves sport a 11-2 overall mark and are in second place in the Lakes Conference with an 8-1 record. But Cherokee had a rough go of it in their latest Lakes encounter when the Sheldon Orabs put up a good fight only to have the Braves nip them in the last 11 seconds 5653. Sheldon led the whole contest except for the last five minutes of the game. In the Midgets' first meeting with the Braves Dec. 1, Estherville's Terry Poulos missed the first of a one and one foul situation to let Cherokee squeeze past 63-62. In that game, Cherokee's Kelly Perrin collected 18points but Estherville Coach George Hess said Wednesday that Perrin is not the one he's worried about now. "Cherokee is undergoing a change in its lineup to involve Dude Phipps," stated Hess. "Phipps is one of the best shooters in the conference." The senior was named as an all-conference forward in 1972 and scored the most points of any player in the conference last year. The Midgets put it all togeth-. er against Sibley after two straight losses the weekend before to down the Generals 6357. In that contest, Hess used a man to man defense for the first time this year and said he may use the defense part time against Cherokee. "Cherokee is a fast breaking team and is a good rebounding team," noted Hess. "They have one of the more agile centers in Mark Schnoes." Hess said that senior Bob Hartman will start at one of the forward positions but the other spot is still up for grabs between Chris Rullestad, Kevin Buell and Tom Hackett. In the Sheldon game, the Midget men- Bill Horine Reports Walleye Fishing On, Off; Big Perch Biting at Spirit Listen!

Warren Spahn Gives Credit To Dad for Pitching Ability By HUBERT IZELL ^•octated Press Snorts ^Writer NEW YORK (AP) A Hall of Fame twinkle appeared in Eddie Spahn's 77-year-old eyes. He taught his boy how to pitch and now Warren was headed for Cooperstown. "That twinkle was reward enough," said Warren. Spahn pitched heroically for the Braves of both Boston and Milwaukee, winning a left-handed record 363 games with 13 seasons of 20 or more victories. "It was almost midnight Tuesday when the call came," he said. "We were at my dad's house in Buffalo, N.Y. Suddenly I was in the Baseball Hall of Fame. I almost cried." Spahn was an overwhelming choice with 316 of 3S0 votes from the Baseball Writers Association of America. A 75 per cent approval was needed, and he had received 83 in his first year of eligibility. "The emotions flowed and I couldn't take my eyes off my father," he said. "He was the one who taught me to pitch instead of simply throw ... the high leg kick, the style . . . everything." The 51-year-old Spahn will be enshrined next summer at the Baseball Hall in Cooperstown, N.Y. "Right up there with Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb and Walter Johnson," he said. Whitey Ford, one-time clutch left-hander of the New York Yankees, fell 29 votes short of three required 284 in his first shot at the Hall. By chance, he ran into Spahn at a restaurant after Wednesday's announcement. "Nice going, Spahnie," he said. "Maybe Mickey and I can make it as a two-man entry next year." Mickey Mantle, the old Yankee slugger, becomes elligible in 1974. Spahn is bald, but athletically trim at age 51. He pitched in the major leagues until he was 44 and still wings a few in batting practice for Cleveland as the Indians' pitching coach. Bill Meyers, a scout for the Boston Braves, signed Spahn to an SSO-a-month contract to play for Bradford, Pa., of the Pony League in 1940. Two seasons later, he was called up to Boston for the end of the season. World War n horned in, taking 3% seasons from him, and Spahn didn't win his first ajor league game until 1946 at the age of 25. After that, it was gahgbus- ters. Spahn was a 20-game winner 13 times in a 17-year stretch and wound up with a record of 363-245 plus a bushel of personal records. By BILL HORINE For The Associated Press Walleye fishing is an off and off thing. It can not be taken for granted. Every dyed in the wool fisherman is aware of this and perhaps it is this one factor that keeps him coming back again and again to try for the "tastiest of all Iowa fish" (trout and catfish fishermen may not agree). I can count on one hand the times I have had consistent red hot walleye or saugsr fishing. So when Dave Comes of an Arnolds Park bait shop phoned last week and said the long awaited walleye fishing could be getting good on Lake Okoboji, I hurried up. Comes, Roy Keller and myself were out on the ice at Smith's Bay while it was still dark on Saturday morning. After sitting on the ice for a couple of hours and catching only one walleye, a four-pound- two-ounce beauty, we decided the abrupt change in the weather had upset our expected good fishing. Changing of baits and techniques did no good. Saturday .afternoon was more of the same — no walleyes. Sunday morning I managed to catch one one-pound walleye on a Swedish pimple and half a minor, and that was it But that's the way it goes with Gump" Worsley States Goaltending Career Done BLOOMINGTON, Minn. (AP) — Lome "Gump" Worsley says his 20-year National Hockey League goaltending career is finished. But the Minnesota North Stars, hoping that the 43-year- old Gumper might change his mind, are going to delay in filing voluntary retirement papers with the NHL office. "This isn't a split decision," said Worsley, one of the last of the unmasked goalies. "I talked it over with my wife, mulled it Skating INNSBRUCK, Austria - Helmut Schmalzl led an Italian sweep of the first three places in the International Ski Federation giant slalom for men with runs of one minute, 56.30 seconds and 1:51.64.

Wren Blair, North Stars' general manager, feels otherwise. "I had no alternative but to reluctantly accept his decision," Blair said after meeting with Worsley Wednesday afternoon. "I told him I didn't agree with him—that he had just lost some of his timing. That doesn't mean he's finished." The 5 -foot-7, 180-pound Worsley, known for his quick wit and ability to cajole his teammates to better play in front of him, appeared in 831 NHL regular season games, more than any other active goalie. He had a 6-2-3 record this season with the second-place North Stars in the West Division, and a goals-against average of 2.88. His average in 19 previous seasons was 2.89. A pulled hamstring muscle knocked Worsley out of action early in the season. He played only Dec. 31 against Detroit and last Thursday at Philadelphia since the injury, losing both games. Worsley had his greatest years with the Montreal Cana- diens 1964-70.

Red Rock Dam is anothen place that is really off and on when it comes to fishing. Several days ago I was checking on the fishing at Red Rock and visited with Robert Taylor of Centerville. He was having no luck on the wallleyes that day, but a week earlier had caught four that weighed 22 pounds. He also had a xO- pound northern to go with them. All were caught on a "sonic" from the shore. Walleye fishing on the Mississippi River has been spotty, too. When it's hot, it's hot, and you take them as you find them. Someone should indorm "Outdoor Life" magazine that the jumbo perch have not disappeared from Spirit Lake as reported in the February issue. That reporter should have been in on the perch fishing I had in December. The big ones hit like it was going out of style. Fishermen as a whole are showing more concern for the environment than in the past.
