    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    The "San Diego Clarion"

    June 30th 1975

    A Double-Whammy

    by Al Terego

    The very last day of June, almost exactly halfway through this 1975 baseball season, was remakarkable for a rare coincidence, along with a set of ironies.

    The coincidence was that the San Diego Padres, and their traditional rivals, the Montreal Expos, each experienced their best game of the month on this day.

    One irony was that the measure of success between them was breath -taking; Montreal, now the bottom club in the National League East Table, had no trouble in crushing the perennial champions, and current leaders of the NL West, the New York Mets, whereas the Padres only just eked out a 15 inning squeaker with the equally lowly Cincinatti Reds for fourth place in the pecking order of the NL West

    Another irony is that, the Padres, fpr once, now have bragging rights over their rivals for the first time since 1971, the Expos, hitherto, have been steadily improving, and climbing up the ladder in the East, whereas the Padres have been stuck at the bottom of the Western heap, their losses exceeding those of the Montreal club, season after dismal season.

    Today, however, we find the Padres in an exalted fourth spot, with six more wins (40) to their credit, than the 'Spoes, when it's usually the other way round.

    Montreal's unhappy season (34-50, so far) is especially puzzling because they have been improving from their expansion season steadily year after year, giving every indication that they were building a hitting team with great pitchers like Steve Rogers into future contenders, whereas the Padres, were plodding along season after season, at the bottom of the Western Division, despite the best efforts of their general manager, Dan Conway, to infuse new talent into their ranks.

    The present situation may not last; with half a season to go, Montreal may shake off this setback, the Padres sink back into mediocrity. What the fans of both clubs hope for, is that they have a blazing run of success from now to the play-offs, in which those fans most vivid fantasies have the two rivals squaring off, each against the other.

    We can dream, can't we?

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    Trendy tale-telling

    May 1st 1975. In a broadcast of "Woman's Hour" on the Conway Television Network. Micheala ("Mickey") Wirral is hosting an edition of the talk-show, broadcast from Culver City, featuring two women politicians, plus Keith Washington and Dan Conway.

    "Tonight, ladies and gentlemen..." began Mickey Wirral " ...we bring you three Democratic Representatives to debate with Dan Conway, a complaint
    from the ladies, here, that Representative Washington was guilty of abuse towards them, and they want him to apologize on this program...ladies, state your case"

    Lady 1: We three, Representative Washington, Representative Meadows and I, are all on the same Congressional committee, and before one of our sessions, we three posed for a group photo, during which Mr Washington referred to him being a ripe plum between two green gooseberries.

    Keith: That was fair comment...I was criticizing your views on black people expressed in committee...you two guys don't know what you were talking about, compared to myself, a person of color

    Dan: I can't believe that Congressman Washington abused you...I hear that he seldom shows up for work, anyway.

    Keith: Well, har-de-har, Mr Conway...we all know that you've got your eye on my job, next election...well dream on, Sir..Culver City is one hundred per cent for the Democratic Party! (Cheers and laughter from the local audience)

    Dan: See, Folks...? Mr Washington has just implied that I'm a dreamer...am I insulted? ...am I going to complain to the politically-correct police? No, I'm all growed up...I'm a Republican. (Laughter and some cheers)

    Lady 2: We don't expect Republicans to know the difference between criticism, and crude name -calling

    Dan: It's a misnomer anyway, in the case of you two ladies...gooseberries are a mature, tasty fruit.(Gasps from the audience)

    Lady 1: See, Folks...this male chauvinist can't help himself...he's insulting us, right, now.

    Dan: There's too much of this belly-aching, and telling tales, going on right now...in my own professions these days, show business, and in sports, all sorts of people are coming out of the woodwork to accuse prominent people of offenses - real or imaginary - offenses of long ago.

    Lady 2: Are you suggesting that we let these guys, get away with it because they're rich powerful men like yourself, Mr Conway?

    Dan: I'm suggesting that the real tragedy lies in how quickly the bosses of these guys rush to judgement, and at the first squawk from some female,or boy toy, they drop the guy like a hot hundred weight...whatever happened to innocent until proven guilty?

    Lady 1. But a lot of these accused men admit their past offenses, right away.

    Dan: As do many accused persons in the real world, Lady...but they still get their day in court...in this present hysteria, whipped up by the media, somebody only has to call "Foul", and another career is ruined.

    Micheala Wirral intervenes here to announce that time is running out, and that the issue should be resolved by Keith Washington, who happens to be a celebrated singer, perform the Billy Eckstine number "I aplogize" to the satisfaction of all, save Dan Conway.

    Keith readily agrees, gives a fine performance, and all shake hands at the end of the turn.

    Re: "SPIKES" ...on their combat boots...

    The "San Diego Clarion"

    June 5th 1975

    Too many hitters?

    by Al Terego

    Dan Conway, may have, at last, carried his theory that hitters win ball games too far. For the sixth season in a row, his Padres stuffed with hitters is firmly encamped for the sixth season in a row at the bottom of the Western half of the National League.

    So when the Amateur Draft came along, as was the case , yesterday, he selcted but one journeyman relief pitcher. and that, only because Don Cooper was the only half-decent choice left in the last round of the Draft. Once again, the San Diego general manager cast away the opportunity that his team's annual lowly status gives him to have the brightest and the best that this year's Draft had to offer, pitchers for example like Lee Smith, Frank Pastore, or Dave Stieb, all early selections by coaches and managers, less obsessed by batters.

    Mind you. Conway showed his usual prescience when it came to picking hitters. catcher Steve3 Lake, whom he plucked right away is an eighteen -year-old, who is already close to Big league status and third baseman Marty Castillo, first baseman Greg Brock, along with outfielders Brian Dayett, and Max Venable, aren't chopped liver, either.

    Meanwhile, starting pitchers Mitchell, Odum, and Beare struggle with the Padres, whilst once-promising Kuhaulua and Spinks , fail to mature in Triple- A.

    Mr Conway was up to his old tricks in signing undrafted starting hurler Jose' Umagas and yet another Brit, lnfielder Donny Twinn (ironic, isn't it that an American so derisive of the British, should make so many of them his proteges?) during the off-season, but these two swallows do not of a San Diego Padres summer, make.

    Nor, as long as Dan Conway remains fixated on acquiring hitters, nor will any future summers.

    The London "Daily Mirror"

    May 31st 1975

    Milestones of the month

    by Chatty Cathy

    Probably more positive tidings than negative ones, this May morning, for a change, People...let us see.

    We have to report that, yet again, conflict has flared up in South-East Asia. The two countries haven't come to blows, yet, but the Cold War between Cambodia and Vietnam begins, which could lead to anything.

    Certainly, Khmer Rouge forces based in Cambodia swiped the United States merchant ship "SS Mayaguez" in international waters, the U.S. Navy and Marines having to come into action to retrieve the vessel, losing 38 American Marines killed in the ensuing battle.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=%22SS...I8HdjwSq642IDw

    In this country, the Dibbles Bridge motor coach crash, when its brakes failed in North Yorkshire, causes thirty -two people to die, the highest number ever in a British road accident.
    https://www.google.ca/search?q=+Dibb...M8PHjwTS1rOgBQ

    We are happy to report something nice about the White South African government for a change, it announcing that it will provide all Black children with free and compulsory education, something that we enlightened Brits did back in the 'Thirties. Better late than never, I suppose.

    More enlightened and encouraging stuff to report: Fifteen West African countries signed the Treaty of Lagos, in May, establishing the Economic Community of West African States - a sort of African Common Market, like the European one that we just joined..

    Another feather in Brit caps; Elton John's ''Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy'' becomes the first album to enter the US "Billboard 200" album chart at Number One. The beat goes on...Brit bands continue to invade the mighty U.S.A.

    And for those of you planning a late Whitsun holiday, for just the price of your firstborn, and an arm, and a leg, and you too, can attend the Busch (Beer) Gardens Williamsburg theme park which opened in Virginia, during the month

    Women are certainly reaching the heights in this official year of our gender. Junko Tabei from Japan became the first woman to climb the summit of Mount Everest. We'll be running this country next, you watch.
