24 Palm Beach Post, Wed., November 6, 1968 Sails, Pomps, Macs Biting OUTDOORS By Ed Buckow Sailfishing is excellent offshore, pompano action picked up on Lake Worth Tuesday, big mackerel are schooled up in the St. Lucie Inlet area, trout are plentiful in the Indian River near Jensen Beach, and bass and speckled perch fishing is good around Lake Okeechobee. The fastest sailfishing has been occurring near the artificial reef, about a half mile northeast of Palm Beach Inlet. Fishing in that area yesterday, Charles and Marie Wood both took six-foot-plus sails, and Red Graham landed a 6-foot spindlebill. They were trolling balao and mullet. Trolling in the same vicinity with live blue runners, a party aboard Capt. Frank Ardine's Sail Ahoy raised eight sails and caught and released two. Mrs. Bill Bornstein released one of the sails and Mrs. Leo Cohen freed the other. Mrs. Bornstein also landed a 45-pound barracuda. Pompano fishing improved on Lake Worth, south of Peanut Island during the day. The top catch checked in at Lake Side Tackle and Seafood numbered 24. Al Pearch took a fish box full of two to five and a half pound mackerel trolling just north of St. Lucie Inlet during the day thanks to a commercial net fisherman. Pearce was trolling south ol the Inlet when the commercial fisherman pulled up beside his boat and told him that he had Just gone through a mile-long school of mackerel a half-mile north oi the inlet. Pearce followed the commercial man's instructions and loaded up the box. The cold front that was forecast for Tuesday fizzled, and it appears that schools of mackerel and blues drifted to the north during the day. Small migratory gamefish were rather scarce in the area from Juno Beach to Hobe Sound. One meteorologist Tuesday unofficially predicted the arrival of a cold front with some real punch to it Friday or Saturday. Johnny Crawford, operator of the Snook Nook at Jensen Beach, said surf fishing was slow in that area Tuesday, but fishermen hit trout casting plugs on the Indian River flats. John Wilbert came in with a seven and three-quarter pounder. Bluefishing was hot and a variety of other fish was caught Tuesday in the Port Salerno area. Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Napoli returned to the Fishin' Hole late in the afternoon with a catch of 35 blues. They took the fish on cut bait in the Sun Parlor area. Fishing with live shrimp in the same area, Rex and Morreli Andrews came up with a mixed catch that included four channel bass, three blues and a trout. William Saunders and his son. Bill, came up with two snook, three blues and a trout casting top-water ber of Commerce. The event is divided into three marathon-type races, with the first starting at 12:30 p.m. from the Okeechobee Waterway at the Belle Glade Marine. Some 60 boats are expected to compete. HOLIDAY RACE - The fast SK (Ski) Class racing powerboat is the type of attraction to be offered Sunday in the third annual Belle Glade Regatta, sponsored by the Boat Racing Club of Palm Beach County and the Belle Glade Cham Hunters Warned Bv Commissioner Bad News, Gals: Rozelle Asks Monday TV Football plugs on the Indian River Trolling outside St. Lucie Inlet, Gerald Fletcher and Gene Mitchell boated five kingfish three dolphin and a cobia. Both bass and speckled perch are being caught In the Belle Glade area of Lake Okeechobee. The bass are hitting back in the i.:rass at Long Point and In Winnie's Cove. Local angler Paul Wintink returned to J-Mark Fishing Camp Tuesday with 10 bass, and Ercel Mixson checked in with eight. The specks are hitting fairly good in the rim canal. Speckled perch are still being hauled in the Kissimmee River and the north end of Government Cut, according to Joe Johansen, operator of Joe and Wanda's Camp. Joe said the specks are hitting both minnows and jigs, and that near-limit catches are coming In. high water and are a natural resource that should be harvested. A 30,000-acre area was added to the Everglades Management Area this year in Palm Beach County. This new area is located north of L-5 levee, east of the Miami Canal, and west of U.S. Highway 27. It will be posted to enable hunters to find the boundaries. The commission also announced a special two-day "either sex" deer season in Collier County Nov. 9 and 10. McBroom said this season has been set to enable hunters to harvest deer that would otherwise be wasted due to a die off. Wildlife biologists are expecting a die off of deer similar to the one that occurred In the Fah-kahatchee Strand In Collier County last year. A team of biologists have found a heavy infestation of parasites in the Collier deer herd and some deer in a weakened condition. With the hunting season on native game opening Saturday, W. T. McBroom, commissioner of the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission's Everglades Region, urged all hunters to avoid harassment of does and other illegal deer. He particularly cautioned hunters to call off their dogs when it Is determined they are running deer other than legal bucks. The hunting area of special concern to the commissioner is the Everglades Management Area located in Palm Beach, Broward and Dade counties. McBroom said that although the deer herd in Conservation Area III suffered losses from high water conditions last summer, recent surveys Indicate a high buck-doe ratio and the harvest of mature bucks can not harm the herd. He pointed out that the larger bucks, simply because of their size, were least damaged by the I Score I Board I Art Modell, president of the Cleveland Browns and the National Football League, likes to believe that pro football is capturing the women. "At cocktail parties," he says, "I hear them talking red-dog, square out and play action. Why not? We've got the country's number one game." Rozelle now may be in a position to defy the TV decisionmakers If they refuse to go along with him. Pro football's television contracts come up for renewal next year. The commissioner seeks 14 Monday night games, the concurrent abandonment of the Sunday afternoon double-header programming Insisted upon by the networks and higher fees for his owners. Pro football looks to television for added income in the face of rising costs (the player union demands) and approaching full occupancy oi the stadiums. CBS this season is paying $18.8 million for 112 NFL games plus two playoffs and $2 million more for the league championship game, nbe's bill Is $8.2 million for 70 American League games plus the championship and $2.5 million for the Super Bowl. Both networks claim they make very little money from pro football and that the game is merely a prestige item for themselves and their affiliate stations. The commissioner is not sympathetic. Should the networks balk at the sport's coming demands, there is the real possibility that professional football will set up its own network and peddle Its own product. There are no serious obstacles In the way for such an unprecedented move. CBS, which has televised NFL games since 1961, would be shaken. Its big sports department would be virtually wiped out because the network has few other sports events. There are those who suspect that television eventually will swallow football alive through overexposure. This Is a possibility, especially In Christmas week when the clashing of bodies seems to be the only thing to see in the afternoons. The pros are unconcerned. If there is overexposure, they reason, the first people to know it will be the college bowl promoters. There are too many bowl games with too little meaning and they are losing their luster. NHL Roundup By The Associated Press By WILLIAM N. WALLACE (C ) N .Y . Times News Service NEW YORK Mrs. Arlyne Lentz of Milwaukee is aware of pro football, especially on Sunday afternoons. She is the home-maker for a three television-set household. "My husband goes to his room to watch," she explains. "My son goes to his room and my mother goes to her room. Only the dog and I do not watch. It gets lonely." Of the watchers, Mrs. Lentz's mother Is probably the most dedicated. On a clear day in Milwaukee last Sept. ZZ the Bears were playing the Lions In Detroit where it began to rain. She got up and closed all the windows. We have news for Mrs. Lentz. On the basis of the television ratings of the Green Bay-Dallas game a week ago Monday night, her dog and she will likely lose the family on another occasion beginning next year. The ratings for that game were so good that Pete Rozelle, the Commissioner of Pro Football, may now have the tool with which to extract from the networks the nationally televised game he seeks on 14 Monday nights during coming seasons. The Packer-Cowboy game, televised by the Columbia Broadcasting System, had a national arbitron rating of 25.1 and a 44 per cent share of the home audience. The competition was a good movie, "Exodus," on the National Broadcasting Company's network and "The Outcasts" and "Big Valley" on American Broadcasting Company stations. Their ratings and shares were 16.1, 30 per cent, and il.5, 21 per cent. The football game had the sixth best rating of any weeknight show In the new television season that began in September. There were, and perhaps still are, decision-makers in the television world who believe pro football, or any sports event, cannot compete successfully In the weeknight prime time hours (8-11 p.m.) when the audiences are the largest and the stakes the highest. , Their belief is that the wife gives up on Sunday afternoons and lets the men have their football. But on the weeknights she becomes defiant and will have no truck with the clashing of bodies on her TV screen. Three-set households like the Lentz one, where the little woman and the dog are outnumbered 3-2, are too few. national League Eastern Division GFGA lit Pt.

I You'll Love FSU Baseball Coach Quits NEW YORK (AP) - Early in his off-season career as a probation-parole officer, linebacker John Huard of the Denver Broncos visited Maine State Prison and gave a lecture on pro football. "While I was talking," Huard related Tuesday, "one of the inmates turned to a guard and asked, 'What's he in for?' " It Is not unlikely that at some point ' in Denver's game with Boston last Sunday, one of the Patriot backs turned to the linemen .-and asked, "What's he doing In here all the time?" Huard might not have been In the Boston backfield all of the time in the Broncos' easy 35-14 victory, but he was there much of the time and Tuesday was named the American Football League's defensive player of the week by The Associated Press. 1.000 n .571 .500 .400 Minnesota ... 4 Kentucky 4 New York 3 Miami 2 Indiana 1 DIG MAG .167 same ultimate goal to manage Western Division a big league club.

Sterling still has a healthy lead, however, with 508 yards In 74 tries, a 6.9 average. Kreldler, the 1967 Western Division rushing leader, is second with 375 yards in 96 carries, followed by Agatheas with 362 yards in 70 attempts. Pahokee, first last week in team defense, tumbled to fourth after yielding 402 yards to Sea-crest. Belle Glade took over the lead with an average of 129.3 yards per game.

Garden State Trial Draws 17 Entries CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) Seventeen 2-year-olds were named Tuesday for Wednesday's running of the Garden State Trial and officials of Garden State Park Immediately arranged for the mile and 70-yard test to be run off in two sections. Huard, a second-year pro, made 10 tackles, high for Denver this year, helped on four others and was the major reason why Jim Nance gained only 51 yards in 21 tries and the Patriot ground attack managed 77 in 30 over-all. "Perhaps John doesn't have all the tools you'd like to see in a middle linebacker a guy who's 6-3, weighs 250 and runs the hundred In some low figure," Denver Coach Lou Saban said. "But he's a good steady linebacker who has the instinct of where to go and who can think and react at the same time." Huard had to do a lot of thinking between this season and last in his capacity as a probation-parole officer In Maine. "It was a fascinating experience," said the 6-foot, 218-pound Maine alumnus. "I had a case load of 70 people. I was In charge of Parolees from the state prison and the men's correctional center, and I also had a lot of Juveniles who were on probalion. The most important thing was to get them to trust me. "I used to be able to think about football all the time, but then I started thinking about the kids a lot how I could help them and how I could keep them out of trouble." He called it the "best college TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (UPD Fred Hatfield resigned as head baseball coach at Florida State University today to return to professional ball.
