Pag« 2-0 * * SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS - Thursday, Fab. 11, 1965 Yeoman Talks At Lackland Pigskin Fete Rill Yeoman, University of Houston football coach, deplored the dropping of football fronv Lackland Air Force Base’s athletic program while making the principal address at Lackland’s annual sports banquet Wednesday night. “It is a regrettable thing,” Yeoman said during the one serious moment of his speech. “Football is a rallying point for the students in a college and it can be the same thing for personnel at a military base. “I don’t know the reason for this decision but I’m sure there must be a good one,” he continued. “I only hope that soon the decision will be reversed.” Lackland was the last Air Force base in the United States to field a team on the varsity level. The decision to cut it from the athletic program was made by Air Training Command headquarters and announced several weeks ago. The dinner honored varsity and intramural teams and athletes at the big base.

HOCKEY RESULTS NATIONAL LEAGUE : Toronto 6, Montreal 2. ! Chicago 5, Detroit 2. AMERICAN LEAGUE tHershev 3, Cleveland 1. ; Buffalo 5, Rochester 5, overtime tie. CANYON LAKE UP 13 FEET Canyon Lake has picked up approximately 13 feet of water since Jan. 20, and the lake is still rising, according to the U.S. Corps of Engineers. Gates on the dam were closed Jan. 21 so that some work on downstream installations could be accomplished. The gates are still closed, and the lake benefited from the recent rains in the watershed. The elevation of Canyon stood at 812.96 feet Jan. 20. At 2 p.m. Wednesday the elevation had reached the 826 mark. A Corps of Engineers official said the lake rose almost eight inches between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday. “It’s been rising like that for the last two days,” he said, “and probably will come up some more during the night.” The 826 mark puts Canyon within a few inches of the highest elevation the lake has attained since the completion of the dam. The lake will reach elevation 909 when full. Both Falcon and Mathis reached high levels last fall and have been able to hold most of the water. Buchanan, which received a little water during the rains last weekend, was at the 1011.87 mark at 8 a.m. Wednesday and was rising very slowly. Elevation 1020 is the full mark for Buchanan. Travis, which has been very low in recent years, was still catching a little water Wednesday afternoon. It had reached elevation 650.06 at 2 p.m., putting it about 31 feet below the full mark. LLANO ON AN EIGHT-FOOT RISE Travis might receive more water as gates are opened on the dam at Granite Shoals. The Llano River was on an eight- foot rise Wednesday, according to the Kingsland Chamber of Commerce, and debris and muddy water was being pushed into the lake. The chamber Is sponsoring a white bass tournament at Granite this weekend, and the muddy water isn’t expected to help fishermen much. Chamber officials said the area northwest of the Llano’s mouth remains clear and that most of the fishing action probably will take place there. The rains certainly came at a good time for wildlife in this region of the state. Areas west of Bexar County were becoming extremely dry, and deer were beginning to scratch for something to eat. Many areas, particularly in South Texas, still could use moisture even though San Antonio residents seem to have had their fill of wet, cloudy skies. A continuing mild winter and a wet spring will mean bumper crops of quail and wild turkeys in the H1U Country and South Texas, plus a high survival rate for lawns. Ranchers will have to watch their animals closely, however, for outbreaks of screwworms if the warm weather and rains continue. In Texas, of course, that’s a mighty big if.

OILERS GET JAMIESON By AURELIO RAMIREZ JR. Staff Writer St. Peter Claver’s talented Trojans will be fielding an experienced quintet when they shoot for their third state basketball championship this weekend. The Trojans will play the Victoria St. Joseph’s Flyers at 9:30 a.m. Friday in a Class AA first round contest in the Texas Catholic Interscholastic League tournament at St. Mary’s Urd- versity. St. Peter Claver won the District 4-AA crown with an 8-0 record and ran up a 23-5 season record which rates as one of the city’s finest. Now, the charges of coach Lonnie Popham stand ready to stake their claim as the state’s best Catholic team in their di vision. Four regulars from last year’s team which posted a 174 season record provide the experience for the team. Two of the starters were members of the 1963 St. Peter Claver squad which won the state title. All-state candidate Clarence Johnson, a 6-6 junior, leads a Trojan squad which coach Popham “figured would do as well as they did.” Johnson, the TCIL Class AA high jump champ, won the city’s Catholic scoring cham pionship with an average of 21.2 points per game — 594 points in 28 contests — and took the 4-AA crown by averaging 20.5 tallies per game. St. Peter Claver’s starting five includes three juniors and two seniors and the top three reserves also will have one more year of elgibility after this sea son. Guard Odis King, a 5-11 junior, is the other members of the ’63 championship club. He was the team’s No. 4 scorer with 282 points in 28 tilts. Senior forward Clem Strait, who stands 6-2, was the No.J Mules Hold Annual Swim Alamo Heights will host its annual high school swimming meet at the San Antonio College pool Saturday, with prelim inaries at 9:30 a.m. and the finals at 2 p.m. Spring Branch Memorial, the defending champion, will return to battle Alamo Heights, Lee, MacArthur, Jefferson, TMI, Houston Lamar, and John Marshall swimmers.
