The Cote, who had on open Wednesday date, return* at Cincinnati with lefty Dick Ellsworth (7-13) taking on the Redlegs' Bob Hirkey (17-11). The Cubs don't open at home until Friday when they meet the Milwaukee Braves in Wrtgley Field. The White Sox meander to Detroit for a three-game weekend set before bowing in at Com- igkey Park Tuesday against Washington. Biggest Sox news out of Washington was the burglary loss by Minnie Minoso and Al Smith in their hotel room. A snpak-thief lifted $300 from Minoso. whilf Smith lost $200 and his 1959 World Series ring. At Cincinnati, Ellsworth takes on the Redlegs in the same park he made his National League debut in 1958. The Reds humped him for four runs on four hits and three walks in two innings and later he was optioned to Fort Worth. But last year. Ellsworth split two decisions against the Reds. Despite the Cubs' Tuesday opening 7-1 defeat by Cincinnati, Vedie Himsl, "head coach" for thej first two weeks of the season, said the club's multiple coach idea is "working out very well — very good." "We don't vote on any starting lineup," said Himsl, who never has played a major league ACMI LANIS Wednesday l P.M.

River Ripples Outdoors with Harold Brand Encourage Newcomer* Veteran sportsmen should promote and encourage the younger generation to participate in and learn various outdoor recreations, said .Jess Edwards, a spokesman for the Piasa Pointer and Setter Club. In order to keep any sport active it is necessary to continually add new blood and recruits. A good example of this theory occurred last Sunday during the Field Trial sponsored by the Piasa Club. "Out of a field of U winners, seven of them were new at the sport," Edwards said. "And best ol all, the trophy takers won them *under regular , field -trial rules that weren't easecl for thej occasion. All sportsmen will do well to give newcomers an opportunity to compete and to teach them rudiments of their field of sport. 1 Wings Whip Hawks, 2-1, Even Series DETROIT (AP) — Faced with the problem of winning in Chicago or conceding the Stanley Cup to the Chicago Black Hawks, the Detroit Red Wings and their newest hero—rookie Bruce MacGregor— were off today to see if they can negotiate the soft ice in Chicago Stadium. "If this winning at home business keeps up, we're going to lose out," said Detroit Coach Sid Abel after his Whigs had knotted the series at two games each with a 2-1 victory Wednesday night on MacGregor's third period goal. from farmers whose drainage I The best-of-seven series contin- ditches and tiles, have,been block-yes Friday night and returns to ~ J "•" "' '<•""• <« 'Detroit Sunday night.

McClelland, executive secretary of the Federation: "It was the opinion of our committee and confirmed by the Department of Conservation men present that a longer season for trapping beaver was unwarranted. This same advice has been j given to biologists me by several throughout the game state. And we have had some complaints ed. our intensely cultivated areas the beaver havejjfo.ven njore of a detriment than a. help. Their dam building has not been of help to water conservation when its done hi a drainage ditch. Unfortunately we have more corn and bean land than marsh and farmers balk at having beaver if they flood out land they want to cultivate. "Hide prices have gone so low that very lew trappers are interested in trapping beaver. It is of course going to be difficult to get trappers to take them where they are a pest and leave them alone where they are wanted. But, we fell that more lenient beaver trapping regulations will likely do more good than harm." Trial Results Winners and handlers hi order named were Puppy Stakes; Sue a pointer female, Rube Wright.

(AP) — Little Joie Ray, who set a world's mile record of 4:12 in 1925, turned 67 today—planning to run his customary "birthday mile" In chill, dismal weather. Chestie Jofft (5-5) may not be remembered by the young folk of this jet age and era of the sub four minute mile, but he Is a trusty milestone for the grey- bears of track and field. HP competed in three Olympics and never did run what he considered his bt>st race. "With all these vitamins and super practice routines, I think maybe t Just was born too soon for this mile-running glamor of today," said Ray, who is a retired steel mill hand and now an odd- job man. This is the sixth year Ray has 1 rotted a birthday mile—his best lime being 5:50.0 three years ago Said Jole: "Pvp been running two milps a day with w£alher boots on to get in shape, but if it's too cold I'll take it rasy. Anyway, want to get it over with." Hr ran today at the oval of Horace Mann High School with several school officials scheduled to clock him. "But, I'll just carry my own watch to see they give me the right," cracked Joie. Ray now seems to be laughing at Father Time as he once did the famed Flying Finn, Paavo Nurmi, who complained of cramps and failed to go against Joie in Madison So^iare Garden when he set his mile world 4:12.0 mark without being pressed. "I think I will run as long as 1 live," said Ray, "and I have set my age limit at 100. I have a lot of family background says I'll make it. "My great grandfather was IDS vhen he dlerl in seeming good health. They said he just died of old age. One grandfather of mine reached 82. My dad and mother each passed away a few months <hy of 80." Ray, who collected some 950 medals, ribbons and trophies when track was a real elbow-bumping rugged battle over rough strips s an amazingly independent old :hap. In his little home on two acres of land in East Gary, he does his own cooking, washing and ironing Is he lonely?' "No I'm stil pretty good on the trumpet t>lay soloes at church onde in awhile, and I bang on the family piano," Joie said. "I like to watch baseball on TV and this summe I'll be back water-ski-ing and skin diving." Officers Elected By Moose Edward Baker was elected governor of Alton Moose Lodge Wednesday night.
