B4 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER Friday, April 6. W9 jr. Gym Regional ere This Weekend H BY TERENCE MOORE Enquirer Spor's Reporter The Queen City Gymnastic Boosters wi!l host, the 1979 Regional Junior Olympic Championships this weekend at Sycamore High School. Competition for the two-day meet which features the top 90 female gymnasts from Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Illinois and Michigan-runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Cincinnatians Gretchen Tafel, 16, and Denise Pettit, 15, are the only local entrants. Both are from the Queen City Gymnastics Center. "IF THEY do as well as they did to qualify for the regional tournament, they should have no trouble qualifying for national competition," said their coach, Jeff Metzger, who also Is in charge of the Cincinnati regional tournament. "It all depends on if they don't have any falls or major breaks," he continued. "If they both hit well, then they should be alright." To qualify for regional competi-tion, each gymnast had to score 66 00 out of a possible 80.00 points in her respective state meet. Tafel tallied 68.15 points while Pettit totaled 67.65 at their qualifying meet at Ohio State University. March 24-25. IN ORDER to qualify for the national tournament scheduled for May 10-11, a gymnast must total 68 points in regional competition. The national tournament for juniors (age 12-14) will be held in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., while the senior portion (age 15 and up) will be held in Columbus, Ohio. "Last year we had Amy Schuk who finished in second place in the all-round competition and qualified for the nationals," Metzger said. "Gretchen and Denise, in addition to Schuk, are among the highest scorers ever to come out of Cincinnati." Metzger organized the Queen City Gymnastics Center In 1975 and he has been pleased with its success since that time "THIS YEAR we have two girls in the regionals and last season we had three girls competing," Metzger said. "Next year we'll probably have two or three more qualify. I'd like to think that someday we can get as many as 10 kids into the regionals." Last season the Midwest regional was held in Lansing, Mich. Metzger said Cincinnati received the honors this year after some heavy bidding. "They like to look at what type of success you've had in running tournaments in the past, things along that nature," Metzger said. "We're happy to have gotten this opportunity." Not only that, Metzger says other local people are happy, too. "THE PHONE has been ringing off the hook with people who want more Information about the meet," Metzger said. "The response has been amazing. I think it's going to help the sport out quite a bit in this area." The compulsory round of the tournament takes place Saturday. Gymnasts will be required to use a common routine for all four events uneven parallel bars, horse vault, balanced beam and floor excerclse. Gymnasts will go through the same four events Sunday, but with optional routines. Tickets, which run between $1.50 and $3.50, can be obtained from Ticketron and Queen City Gymnastics Center, Inc, 11118 Deerfield Road. Ky. Deer Poachers Get Stiff est Fines BY JIM MONTGOMERY Enquirer Outdoors Editor The stiffest penalties ever assessed deer poachers in Kentucky, and possibly in the nation, were handed down this week in Bowling Green by district judge Henry Potter. Each of three men was fined $5000, plus court costs of $27.50 each, and must also pay $333.33 apiece to replace the deer. All pleaded guilty, and the total for each man was $5360.83. Kentucky game laws enforcement chief Steve Youtz said the fines far exceeded any previous ones and termed the court action "a meaningful event In wildlife conservation." Enforcement of ficials everywhere have been concerned over court leniency toward game law violators. Youtz last year termed stiffer penalties "a must, if we're going to curb poaching." Two of the poachers were Bowling Green men, Larry Holbrey and Harvey Bryson. The third man was Lonnie McMillan of Maryville, Tenn. McMillan paid $3000 of his fine shortly after sentencing. Holbrey and Bryson made smaller down payments and arranged installments for the balance. Also handed down was a total of 450 days in jail for each man, but this was suspended on two conditions: that they relinquish hunting rights in Kentucky for five years and that they pay the fines in full. The three men were apprehended December 9 in Warren County by game protector James Taylor and district supervisor Wayne Riley. Five out-of-season deer were in the back of a pickup truck. "It really was Just a routine patrol," Youtz said. "They (Taylor and Riley) were out at night, saw a spotlight, staked out and caught 'em." Judge Potter's fines were assessed on the basis of $1000 per man per deer. Kentucky's rule of thumb on replacement is $200 per deer, in this case a total of $1000, which the judge divided three ways for the figure of $333.33. Youtz also hailed a recent Judge's decision in Christian County which upheld confiscation of a vehicle used in deer poaching. Earlier, a Hardin County judge released a truck which enforcement officers had confiscated. The Christian County truck now will be sold at auction. 10-Day Turkey Season In Ky. BY JIM MONTGOMERY Enquirer Outdoors Editor Kentucky's 10-day 1979 turkey season opens April 21 in nine counties and several other areas, some of which involve special regulations. There are two new rules affecting this year's turkey season. One, a $5.50 turkey permit must be purchased in addition to a regular hunting license (three-day nonresident hunting licenses do not meet this requirement). Two, hunters may not use breech-loading rifles. Counties open to hunting are Bath, Butler, Jackson, Lee, Letcher, Menifee, Owsley, Pike and Rowan. Letcher County's wildlife management area will be open to turkey hunting, but the Breaks Interstate Park in Pike County will not. Land Between the Lakes (LBL), Ft. Campbell and Ft. Knox also will have turkey seasons. At LBL the season is April 11-29. Ft. Knox will allow hunters on a space-available basis every Saturday and Sunday in April. Ft. Campbell will allow hunting April 21, 22, 28 and 29. BAG LIMIT is one male turkey with visible beard in all areas. Shooting hours are from a half-hour before sunrise until noon, except at Ft. Campbell and LBL, where hunting will be legal until a half-hour past sunset, local time. Only weapons permissible are shotguns from 10 through 20 gauges, muzzle-loading shotguns and muzzle-loading rifles. Archery equipment, except crossbows, are legal. Crossbows are legal in pioneer weapons areas. Hope & Friends Darn Bench With Faint Praise At Roast BY DICK FORBES Enquirer Sports Reporter "I just came here to roast ol' bowlegs," said Bob Hope, who flew In from a show in London for the occasion. "He's had so many fast balls whistle through his legs his knees are chapped." That was just a sample of the way Johnny Bench was roasted he also was toasted -Thursday night at his Celebrity Roast at the Convention Center, all for the benefit of the Kidney Foundation of Greater Cincinnati. There were those in the crowd of more than 700, who paid $50 a plate, who couldn't get over the difference in the Bench Roast and the Pete Rose Roast of six weeks ago. The Bench affair drew three times as many people. There were all kinds of references to John Bench, his baseball career and his lifestyle, but master of ceremonies Bob Braun called attention to something more serious. "He's never turned down a chance to help needy people or do something for kids," Braun said, "and I know some athletes who look down on such opportunities." HOPE ADMITTED there were those on the show whose act was tough to follow. But he was right on target, nevertheless. "It was kinda sad to see the umpires parading on strike," Hope said. "They looked sort of like the Godfather's funeral. I guess they want more money to hang up their white canes." About Bench: "He's spent more time on his knees than an archbishop .. . He's the only catcher in baseball that when you're running for home you have to jump over him . . . and you've got to say this, if Johnny Bench got roasted, Pete Rose got burned." Pat Paulsen got into the act by noting that "He's a great catcher, and not selfish about what he catches. He spreads it around . . . You can't tell whether he's an ugly person or a good-looking gorilla." Kenny Price, a Cincinnati native, said Bench "has fewer hits than the Smothers Brothers . . . Riverfront Stadium is the house that Bench built but which Rose holds the mortgage on." . CAREN KAYE, the only female on the dais, loved her part. She said Bob Hope called "and asked me if I believed in free speech. When I said, 'certainly,' Bob said, 'I'd like you to make one.' " She kept going. "The first time I saw 'JB,' I thought he was the neatest looking man I ever saw. Then he took off his mask ... All I can say to you, Johnny, is 'Catch Me Later,' " in reference to his new book, Catch You Later. Reds' second baseman Joe Mor- Murphy In Good Condition Veteran National Basketball Association referee Don Murphy, who underwent successful heart bypass surgery Tuesday at Christ Hospital, said Thursday from the hospital that he is in good condition and recuperating well. Murphy underwent the triple bypass surgery after suffering a heart attack March 18 during an NBA game in San Diego between the Clippers and Golden State. Frey To Coach U. S.

John Bench is my friend, half Indian, half asleep." IT WAS late when Bench finally got around to acknowledgments. "Custer was shot to death with arrows," Bench cracked. "Here, I was bored to death ... I never knew it was possible to bleed and laugh to death at the same time. "I'll tell you, baseball is a great game. Bob Hope asked me, 'Where else can you spend eight months on grass and not get busted?' . . . The way things are going with the Reds, George Foster has a clause in his contract now that on his way to and from the ballpark, his chauffeur is Dick Wagner." Reds' president Wagner was on hand along with Bob Howsam, who made a special trip into town for the .roast. Others on hand included Reds manager John McNamara, Bengals offensive line coach Mike McCormack, UC athletic director Bill Jenike and former coach-athlete-turned politician John (Socko) Wiethe.
