Black Sox Are Strong Entry
In State ABC Tourney
The Drain Black Sox, playing
independant baseball for the first
time in several years, will enter
the state ABC tournament in Port
land Sunday in the first round of
play. The tourney started Thurs-!
day night and will continue until
Monday, August 19.
Drain will meet McMinnville in
the first game that will mark the
third time this season that the two
teams have met. Drain won both
previous games and will be out to
make it three in a row.
For the important tourney in
which Drain, along with The
Dalles, are one of the upstate
favorites, coach Ray Stratton has
one of five different pitchers he
can draw from.
Heading the mound staff for
Drain is Stan Dmosehowsky, all
Northern Division pitcher from
the University of Oregon last sea
son and currently holding a 7-2
record this season. A new pitcher
just acquired is Jack Henkle, who
sports a 2-0 record and is the only
undefeated pitcher on the team.
Stratton has also picked up a
fifth pitcher by the name of Jer
ry Bartow to help with the mound
duties. Noel Aronson (2-1) and
Jerry Pflug (1-1) are others.
Leading the team at the plate
after the first 16 games is Strat
ton with a healthy .382 average
followed by Wimp Hastings with a
.355 average.
Ron Bowen is just below the
.300 mark with a .294 average, but
leads the club in home runs with
five. Craig has two homers to rate
as the only other member of the
team with more than one.
On Saturday night the Black
Sox will be at The Dalles for a
doubleheader starling at 8 p.m.
in a tuneup game for the tourney.
In an earlier meeting between
the two clubs, The Dalles won
both ends of a doubleheader to
give Drain two of their four losses
of the year.
Starting lineup for Drain in the
first game of the ABC will be Irv
Roth behind the plate and either
one of the five pitchers on the
mound. At first base will be Bow
en, at second Hastings and Strat
ton at third.
Shortstop for Drain will be Dan
Luby. In the outfield will be Norv
Ritchie in left, Jerry Gregg in
center and Pat Wholers in right

Season-End Tilts
Set By Semi-Pros
Local School Sports
Brass Arrive Here
Athletic brass of the Roseburg
school system are beginning to
file back Into town, after vaca
tions and business trips, to start
preparations for the coming school
athletic year.
New District Athletic Director
Lome (Dutch) Simons was back
in town Wednesday evening and
new football coach Brad Ecklund
was expected to set up his home
here Sunday. High School Princi
pal Harry Jacoby was reported
to have arrived back in Roseburg
last Saturday and Supt. Mike Dcl
ler is expected back next Mon
day. One of the first decisions facing
the group will be a decision on
any further changes in the Rose
hurg athletic coaching setup for
the rest of the school year. Simons
and Ecklund were both hired dur
ing the summer and it has been
uncertain whether any other
changes were in the making since
the other coaching positions had
been originally based on hiring
done before the recent additions.
It is known that the schoolmen
are presently considering an ap
plication by Jake Leicht, local busi
nessman and former University of
Oregon track and football star, for
the head track and backfield
coaching positions.

County entrant, the Sutherlin Mer
chants, traveling to Cottage Grove

wrapped up and Sutherlin with a
9-3 mark can finish no worse than
a tie for second place with Co

Mound choice for the final game
of the season for Sutherlin is a
