When the topic is baseball you bet the name Ballard is mentioned repeatedly. Jeff Ballard, pitcher of the Baltimore Orioles, has a 9-2 record, and is rated #1 pitcher of the American League. At the rate he's pitching he will .he the most sought after left hander in baseball. Many commendai ions have been made about young Ballard. The Billings Gazette gives him top billing in the sports section and lately we've all become Oriole bird watchers. The Bal1ard-Hansen' family ties reach back to Jeff Ballard's grandfather, Carl 0. Hansen, who played on the 1924 championship baseball team at Valley City State in N.D. Rick Nelsen did a article on Jeff in the Valley City newspaper entitled, KISINC 0RI0LE_Pitching Star Has Ties in Barnes County Area. Jeff's hometown of Billings paid tribute to him when Mayor James Van Arsdale officially designated Dec. 13th, 1988, as Jeff Ballard Day. On June 5th, the sporting News did a feature article on Jeff. Now it's our turn to proudly salute this 26 year-old pitcher whose 'roots' are also from Poplar. Back in the early 30's, Carl 0. Hansen coached in Poplar. He was a tough no-nonsense coach who demanded top performance in basketball, football and track. During the time he taught in our school system, the Poplar Indians soared to victory winning the 1935 State Basketball Championship. Carl and his wife, Bernice, had four children: Kenneth, Marilyn, Jim and Sharon. Marilyn was working for Corbin Drug the summer of 1952, when Bill Ballard rolled into town. Bill worked for Murphy Oil Corporation on a training program to facilitate his degree in geology. The summer of 1953, Bill join= ed about 10 other Southern Oil people in spiriting away Poplar women in weddings. Jeff Ballard was born with sports in his veins. In addition to his grandfather, Carl, his father, Bill Ballard, quarter-backed a national championship Oklahoma Sooner football team under the legendary head coach, Bud Wilkinson, in the 1950's. He pitched baseball (or Oklahoma U., play-edon the Poplar Independent team all summer of 1952 and played several AAl) tournaments for Poplar in following years. Because of thel'oplar connection we feel 'kin' to Jeft, too. Jefl Ballard played his college baseball at Stanford University and in 1984 was a member on the US Olympic Team. He signed with the Orioles and has been esclating ever since. Jeff is the 3rd pitcher in Baltimore history to win 8 of his 9 starts of the season. He is also first Baltimore pitcher ever to win 5 games in April and was named American League pitcher of the month at the time. Next t ime you watch the Orioles play, notice the youig left hander who steps up to the pitcher's mound. That's Ballard.....and he's dyn- amiic. Coach Hansen would have been proud of his grandson. POPLAR IS PROUD OF HIM TOO. Alumni Arts & Crafts Show The Arts and Crafts Show on Saturday, July 1st, from 2-4 p.m. is gathering momentum.

Executive Vice President and Vice President and Cashier Ona Ve'e Sage present FPCC Board of Directors member Doug Sullivan a $2,000.00 Endowment Fund Check; other FPCC Board Members are SpiLe Bighorn and Arlyn Headdress, FPCC President Dr. James Shanley is also pi .�sent. F Pe-k Community College io a growing tribal institution chartered by the Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes. At present, FPCC serves over 275 students from across the reservation (both Indian and n> : -Indian) each academic term. In addition, the College works closely with the Fort Peck Tribal Executive Board insure that education and training for future reservation economic and social development^ is available when needed. FPCC is funded with a combination of local money (tuition and fees as well as tribal contribution and federal grants. A major long-range goal for the College is to become more financially stable and independent. To move towards this goal, the FPCC Board of Directors has embarked on the development of an Endowment Fund for FPCC. As you know, an endowment fund is invested monies, the principal of which remain:-; invented and the earnings (interest from investment) are used for College operation and development. Recognizing these development needs for tribal colleges, the U.S. Congress appropriated $250,000 of matching endowment monies during fiscal year 1989 for tribal controlled colleges. This means that FPCC can receive a dollar match from the federal government for each dollar contributed for a college endowment fund. The FPCC Board of Directors has set a first year goal for the FPCC Endowment Fund of $20,000 in contributions. This means that if the College is successful in raiding this amount, a total of $40,000 (20,000 contribution - 20,000 match) will mark the beginning of a true college endowment program. ********** � NOTICE t ^ The Poplar Shopper wij| jf-not be printed the ^th . o( .luly week.
