TUESDAY, JUNE 25, ALTON EVEiNING TELEGRAPH PAGE ELEXhiN .River and Outdoors Harold Brand An Idea how available land could produce fore wildlife is told by Royal B. McClelland, executive secretary to the Illinois Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, and fellow member of the Great Lakes Assn. of Outdoor Writers: Living Snow Fences Several years ago the Illinois Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs suggested the use of multiflora rose hedges as snow fences along State highways. The Highway Department has been experimenting with rose snow fences in several sections and these short stretches have now reached a size where their ability to stop snow can be determined. Actually the Federation wasn't so interested in the snow fence function as it was in finding another source of cover for wildlife in what frequently is a treeless, shrubless expanse of bare landscape. It was thought that permanent multiflora hedges might prove more economical and effective than the regular wood and wire fences that must be put up eacli fall and removed each spring. A recent spring inspection of several short sections of multi- flora snow fence just north of Mattoon on Route 45 proves this hedge makes a perfect nesting area for several forms of songbirds. A total of 47 blackbirds were counted in a hundred foot section, busily building nests in the dense, thorny, safe nesting sites which were about the only location for nests in this plowed up landscape. Lack of Trees With disastrous elimination of elm trees, both in the country and in town, and the almost complete loss of osage orange hedges along with most other suitable shrub or tree, it is evident that blackbirds are very glad to see the mul- tiflora hedge. We need many more miles of such plantings, not only for blackbird havens but for many other species of bug eating songbirds and wildlife. Minnesota has planted many miles of pine tree snow fence which has proven very satisfactory in that State. Pine is probably not so suitable for Illinois conditions as it grows too high. The multiflora rose hedge should be about right on many highways where there is sufficient right-of- way to allow proper distance from the pavement. It may prove to be practical planted on private farm lands in place of the temporary picket fencing now so widely used. The extensive plantings along interstate highways will also attract many forms of wildlife, adding to the enjoyment of travelers along these new roads. If we could just fence the hundreds of miles on interstate routes with multiflora rose we would really have something in Illinois to be proud of. Geiger Likes Platoon System BOSTON (AP)-Gary Geiger— who looks like a gust of wind could blow him over—has added another chapter in baseball's saga of "The Thin Man." The Red Sox outfielder now admits he thrives on parttime platoon playing. Geiger clobbered a two-out, two- strike pitch by relief hurler Jerry Walker for a two-run homer in the ninth inning Monday night to produce a 7-5 decision over Cleveland. Geiger earlier had hit a wrong- field, run-producing triple and smashed two deep, towering flies to center field which almost traveled out of range. The 6-foot, 165-nounder missed 10 days with a gimpy knee until this past weekend's Yankee series. Since then he's hit .350 with two homers and two triples. Geiger's overall average this year is .340. Ninety-nine per cent of major league hitters say they do best when they face pitching regularly with maybe only a rare day's rest. Not so in Geiger's case. "I'm feeling stronger," Gary said. "I'm getting good pitches to hit now. 'But not playing against the eft handers is helping. I'm get- ing that rest and it has meant a ot to me." The Sand Ridge, 111. slugger vith the frail figure and the whip ash wrist snap has had a col- apsed lung (1960) and bleeding ulcers. But he continues to cause he opposition trouble.

Trautman, who never made H as a professional player but went on to become one of baseball's top administrators is dead of cancer, Trautman, 73, svho had header the minor leagues since 1947, had suffered for some time with a heart condition but doctors saie cancer was the cause of his death at his home here Monday. He began his administrative career in baseball in 1933 when he became president of the Columbus (Ohio) Redbirds of the American Association. Later, he became president of the American Association and foi six years was vice president o the Minor League Association and chairman of its executive committee. In 1946, he became vice presi dent and general manager of the Detroit Baseball Club, but was re leased from his contract to head the minors. As president of the National As sociation of Professional Basebal Leagues (the minors), he succeed ed the late Judge W. G. Bram ham. Under Trautman's guidance, the minor leagues reached a peak o 59 leagues with teams in 448 cities in 1949. Today, 129 teams are com peting in 18 leagues. Bobby Walston, end and place kicker who retired recently from the National Football League played 143 consecutive games in 12 years with the Philadelphia Eagles. WIMBLEDON, England (AP)- Auslralia's Roy Emerson, the world's top-ranked amateur tennis player, has two legs on tennis' >and Slam but he's a long way rom a shoo-in for the Wimbledon itle. "He's a good player and he has as good a cliance as anybody of vinning," said Bill Lenior of Tucson, Ariz, after falling before he Australian in Wimbledon's opening round Monday. "But he's no cinch for the title," Lenior said. "I have the eeling he could have a bad day which would put him out." The sentiment was echoed by former Wimbledon champion Jaroslav Drobny, now a London newspaper columnist and one o) he world's leading authorities on :he game. "I take unseeded Rafael Osuna of Mexico to claim Rod Laver's vacated crown and become the new Wimbledon champion," Drobny wrote. Osuna, a Mexican Davis Cupper who is a student at Southern California, grinned when he saw the article and said: I hope I can live up to his opinion." Asked if he thought he could jeat Emerson, Osuna replied: "Let's put it this way. If I get past Santana, I'll win the tournament." Osuna referred to second-seeded Manuel Santana of Spain, who he probably will meet in the third round. Santana did not play in the rain-shortened Monday pro- jram. Osuna had some trouble elimi- lating Mikhail Mozer of Russia 6-4, 9-7, 6-3. Emerson, who al- •eady has nailed down the French ind Australian titles, whipped >nst Lenior 6-0, 6-4, 6-3. Rain cut Monday's program bout i nhalf and eight American entries, including Chuck McKinley, didn't get on the courts. Cliff Buchholz of St. Louis, had a 2-1 lead over Italian Davis Cup star Nicola Pietrangeli before the natch was postponed. They are scheduled to finish today.

Twice during the weekend they whipped the San Francisco Giants, once more the National League leader, with big innings, and Monday night they used the home run to defeat the Houston Colts 3-0. And it has not all been on the lilting side.

The victory was the ninth in 13 *ames in the current home stand [or the Braves, once more at the ,500 mark after 70 games They're in sixth place, six games out of first.

But Robinson seemed uncertain he'll be tackling any more fighters, middleweights or otherwise Robinson said after the fight "I'm not sure what my future plans are. I can't make up my mind now." Robinson, 158%, had hoped to gain a shot at middleweight champ Dick Tiger. Instead he suffered his 13th defeat. He has won 153. Giardello, 160y 2 , 3s now 92-29 and won the right to challenge the champ. Giardello has had eight draws. I knew I was in with a good fighter when those body punches didn't slow him up," Giardello said. "And he's a smart fighter Look at the way he threw tha 1 right hand lead at my head to open the eighth. It was great, hu I was expecting something like that all through the fight. Don 1 sell this guy short—even if he .': getting old—he can fight any mid dlewelght around today and beai them." Giai'dello, who drew in a mid dleweight championship figh with Gene Fullmer three years ago, declared himself ready foi another title try. 'All I want is Dick Tiger," hi said.
