ir PAGE SIX MS Fish Commission recommenda tloni to lower the levels of nine lakes on Pennsylvania Depart ment of Forests and Waters areas In an effort to improve their fishing was disclosed today by William Voigt, Jr., executive tJirector of the Commission. The water areas involved art Packs Pond and Promised Land Lake In Pike county; Poe Valley Dam, Centre county; Hills Creek Lake, Tioga county; Tobyhanna Lake, Monroe county; Laurel Lake, Somerset county; Raccoon Creek Lake, Beaver county; George B. Stevenson Dam, Cameron county, and Little Pine Creek Dam, Lycoming county. Voight said that draw downs are part of an lnter-asency agreement that places with the Fish Commission the fishery man agement of waters under the jurisdiction of the Forests and Waters Department. Forests and Wafers Secretary Maurice Goddard observed that the agreement : further demonstrates cooperation between his and other state agencies In the effort to realize for the public the maximum recreation potential on the state's parks and forests. He said draw downs will be started within the next 10 days by park per-tonnel. ' Levels for the most part will be dropped two to three feet below normal and done slowly to avoid downstream complications and any loss of fish from the lakes. Refilling to normal levels will be effected well in advance of the 1960 seasons. Meanwhile, fishing, Including Ice fishing, will be permitted. According to Gordon Trembley, chief aquatic biologist of the Fish Commission, partial draw down on a lake re-aults in three distinct benefits to lake management and better fishing. A lowered water level over the winter months concentrates panfish and makes them more available to the larger game fish species, thus improving game fish growth rate, meanwhile effecting a measure of control on panfish which otherwise can and do become too numerous and stunted. Dykes Retained As Manager of Tigers for 1960 I By DON FERMOYLB ' DETROIT (UPI) Jimmie Dykes, rehired as manager of the Detroit Tigers for 1960, promptly lit up one of his trademark cigars and from behind the cloud of smoke predicted his club will be a pennant contender next year. Dykes, his 62 years 42 of them In baseball considerably lightened by the contract signing Monday, saw things in the smoke clouds that weren't so discernible to his watching audience. "I think we have the stuff to go all the way," said the newly aigned little manager. "We'll have to pick up a shortstop and a first baseman." Pressed a bit, Dykes added that he wants to strengthen the bench and he'll reed more consistent relief pitching. It was Dykes' turn to be confident, although Detroit in the past two years heard almost the same words from departed managers Jack Tighe and Bill Norman. The signing of Dykes Monday ended several weeks of speculation about whether the veteran of the Connie Mack era would be rehired or if the Tigers would bid for another "name" manager. This speculation grew last week after Joe Gordon announced he was quitting the Cleveland Indians. But General Manager Rick Fer-rell said Monday that no one except Dykes had been considered for the 1960 field job. Former Baseball Star Found Dead UNICOI. Tenn. (UPD-Funeral arrangements were being made today for Clarence William (Tilly) Walker, 72, former American League home run king, whose body was found Monday at the home of his brother. Walker apparently died from natural causes Sunday, according to physicians. The body was found by bis brother W. F. Walker. Walker was a major leaguer for 13 years. He broke into the majors in 1911. and during his career played with Washington, the old Philadelphia Athletics, the old St. Louis Browns, and the Boston Red Sox. Junior High Eleven to See Action Tomorrow Shamokin Junior High football team will launch a seven-game schedule tomorrow, when it en tertains Milton in Kemp Memorial Stadium. The Greyhound novices, coach' fd by Ward Lichtel, Charlie Caw. thern and Bob Varano, will stage their second game of the season Monday afternoon against Mount Carmel. The Red Tornadoes last night nipped Kulpmont Irosh, 12-7 Braves Tie Dodgers for League Lead Milwaukee Club Scores 12th Win In Last 15 Games By MILTON RICHMAN United Press International Gangway for Milwaukee's fired up Braves, who tell you point blank they're going all the way now with momentum, Eddie Ma thews and even the National League schedule on their side. Even the red-hot Dodgers had to make room when the Braves climbed into a first-place tie with them by licking the Pirates, 8-6, Monday night for their 12th vic tory in the last 15 games. That s the type of down-the- stretch momentum that wins pennants and Mathews is headed in precisely the same direction. The slugging Milwaukee third baseman, living up to his presea son vow that he was going to "make up for a lousy year" in 1958, drove in five runs against the Pirates Monday night with his 42nd and 43rd homers. His first homer came off loser Bob Friend with two on in the fifth. The ball traveled over the roof of the right field stands at Forbes Field, a feat previously accomplished by only five players, including Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle. Mathews' second homer came with one on off re liever Bennie Daniels in the ninth and brought the Milwaukee strongboy's runs-batted-in total to 109 for the season. Southpaw Warren Spahn wasn't exactly admiring the scenery either. Spahn Gets 20th The veteran lefty registered his 20th victory for the 10th time in his 15-year major league career even though Don McMahon had to bail him out in the ninth when the Pirates rallied for their final three runs. The victory was the 266th of Spahn s career and tied a left-hander set by Eppa Rixey. During his career with the Phillies and Reds, Rixey lost a total of 251 games. Spahn has lost only 172. Prior to Monday night's game, several members of the Braves including coadh Billy Herman and Hank Aaron (who chipped in with three hits, by the way) came right out and said they felt Milwaukee would win the pennant. Imagine, then, how they felt aft er the game? Everything is m our favor," Herman declared. "We've been through this before you know, and have you looked at the schedule?" All right, let s take a look. The Braves, have five more games to play, two with the Pirates at Pittsburgh and the last three at home in Milwaukee against the last-place Phillies. All the Dodgers five remaining games are on the road, two at St. Louis and three at Chicago. The Giants, one game off the pace, also have no more home games left. They play two at Chi- ( Continued on Page 7) Cleveland Browns Cut Player Roster to 36 CLEVELAND UPI )-Of tensive end Farrell Funston and defensive halfback Dick Lebeau were released by the Cleveland Browns Monday, getting the club down to the 36-man player limit.

Improvement in ' Record Expected For Philly Eagles Editor's Note: This is the ninth of 12 dispatches on the 1959 prospects of National Football League teams. By RUSS GREEN PHILADELPHIA (UPI) - The little Dutch boy who held his finger in the dyke has a football counterpart in coach Buck Shaw of the Philadelphia Eagles. The silver-haired Shaw faces his second season in the Eastern Division with only 21 veterans, which means that the leaks must be plugged by the rookies who fought it out in training camp, and survived to this late date. And from what has transpired in pre-season games, there is the hope that good passing, more power, and a better defense than a year ago is the formula by which the Eagles hope to better their 2-9-1 record of 1958. The passing comes from Norm Van Brocklin, and a number of good receivers headed by Tommy McDonald. The added power comes from three likely newcomers recruited to aid Billy Barnes and Clarence Peaks, who carried the burden of the ground attack last year. Theron Sapp, 200-pound back from Georgia who starred in the senior bowl game, Joe Pagliei, a free agent out of Clemson, and Walt Kowalczyk join the 'Barnes and Peaks combination. It's Ko-walczyk's second pro season, but last year he was used principally on defense. Sapp was the best looking rookie in camp. The combination Van Brocklin and five runners gives the Eagles added offensive power de spite the lack of a fast outside runner. The probability is the Eagles will open the season with at least four rookies in starting positions. The "familiars" along with Van Brocklin, McDonald, Peaks and Barnes include Chuck Bednarik, Dick Bielski, Pete Retzlaff, Bobby Walston, sceond-year man Proverb Jacobs, Bob Pelligrini, Ed Meadows, Jess Richardson, Mari- Baseball Results United Press International NATIONAL LEAGUE Milwaukee 200 031 0028 13 1 Pittsburgh 001 101 003 & 13 2 Spahn, McMahon 9 and Crandall.

Back SAIC for your family's1 sake SHAMOKIN NEWS-DISPATCH, SHAMOKIN, PA., f-b cry Shamokin News-Dispatch j VLJ7 LhVU J f i r Shamokin Jayvpes Beat Coal Township Shamokin High junior varsity football team got off to an impressive start of its 1959 season last night by scoring a 20-7 victory over neighboring Coal Township's jayvess in the latter's stadium. The contest marked opening of the Keystone Junior Varsity Lea gue campaign. Approximately 1,500 fans watched the contest in which the Greyhounds, coached by Harold Thomas, broke up a 7-7 deadlock with two touchdowns in the third period. Shamokin drew first fire midway through the opening quarter, when quarterback Bob Rosen-bloom whisked a pass to end Tom Thompson for a score. The play covered 61 yards. The Purple Demons, tutored by Ed Binkoski and Bernie Ro-manoski, retaliated in the same period, when quarterback Terry Faust tossed a pass to Kee Bob-koski, a halfback, for six points. The aerial shot ate up 60. yards. Shamokin's extra point was scored by Warren Thoma and Coal's by Donald Lauer on line plunges. Thoma electrified the stands early in the third quarter when he broke through the left side of Coal's line and galloped 88 yards for a teedee. Good down-field blocking paved the way for Thoma. Bob Schickley, brother of Marlin Schickley, Shamokin's star fullback of last year, kicked for the bonus marker to give S.H.S. a 14-7 lead. Two minutes later, Ron Llewellyn, substitute halfback, scooped up a fumbled ball on a pass and scampered 42 yards for another Greyhound tally. A try for the point from scrimmage stopped short of the end zone. A pass interception by Reitz, Shamokin back, spoiled a Coal Township drive on Shamokin's 17-yard line near the end of the half.

Coach McLaughry feels that the side-saddle wing-T gives the Bruins the power of the single wing and (lie ouick strike and deception of the T. McLaughry first tried the innovation at Amherst in 1955, later develooed his entire offense around it. Let McLaughry exnlain how he haopened to devise it: "We were using a conventional wing-T and were faced with tipping our hand on fourth-and-one situations. If we were going to run we came out in the T. If we were i Q)1 to kick, we came out in punt W-malion. "So we moved the punter ta the deep spot and left the other two backs at their normal positions. We had to get the quarterback out of the way so wa could make the direct snap if we wanted to, but still leave him in position to hand off. So we set him in this new position, where his hands are placed exactly the' same as they would be in the T, but one foot is pivoted so that he faces the sideline." Blocking in the line is patterned after the single wing. On direct-snap plays, the quarterback can block and he can trap all along the line. On T type plays, file quarterback can move along the line faster than the conventional T quarterback. John McLaughry is first to admit that the mechanics of his offense are hardly new. It simply combines the thinking of the single wing and tha conventional T.
