Mythtvffl* (Arfc.V Courier Kewt - ttnedey. Mir M, 9* • Fij» Mat More Fishing Records LITTLE ROCK-One of the newest and one of the oldest stale fishing records have gone by the boards. The newest involved the flathead catfish and the oldest the spotted (Ken- lucky) bass. The spotted bass record was upped to five pounds, 13 ounces by Don Heucr Of Batesville, who caught the lunkcr on Cireors Ferry, May 13. The catch was weighed and veri- Tied by Wildlife Officer J. W. Davidson. The old record, five pounds and II ounces, was set in April of 1961 by a Chicago angler fishing on Lake Norfork. The catch was registered as a world record and was the first such fish of its kind introduced into the national fishing records. Since then the world record has soared to over eight pounds, set in Alabama. Grover Hawkins of Mountain View landed a 33-pound, eight-ounce flalhead cat while fishing on the Red River, May 12. The former record had been set April 15 this year at 30 pounds, 10 ounces. * * * The G&FC slipped up in reporting recently that the 30- pound flalhead beat the old record of 19 pounds. On Sept. 26, 1905 the record was set at 26 pounds by R. B. Crawford of Mena, who used redworms while fishing on the Ouachita River for the record catch that stood till April of this year. The new records were the sixth and seventh of the year and the greatest number of records in one year since the G&FC began keeping the fishing log in 1959. * * •* Special Season ARKANSAS HUNTERS AGAIN HAVE A SPECIAL BLUE- winger tea! season, with the season to open Sept. 16 and continue through the 24th. Special permits, to be issued free of charge by the G&FC, are required, plus a valid hunting license and a federal duck stamp. Applications should be addressed to: Teal Permit, Game and Fish Commission, Little Rock, Ark. 72001, and sender's complete return address, including County. The special season is being held to obtain specific information about blue-wing teal and to give waterfowls additional hunting time. Other teal, the cinnamon and green-winged, can also be taken during the special hunt. Wrestling at Arena, 8:30 Luke Not Easy to Chew Did Dwayne Peale Peal off more than he can chew? Will the early-morning cloudburst that hit the area keep fans, who live out where the unpaved roads are, from attending the matches? Those are only a few of the questions for professional wrestling promoter Herb Welch to kick around today. » * * ' Peale is billed to tackle big Luke Graham in the main event at Legion Arena tonight. Peale, unable to satisfy himself in a .lag team match last week, asked for tonight's adventure. "He told me he wanted tO'try Graham one time by himself," the promoter commented. "He was kind of burned up last week." So that's what he arranged, a bout with no time limit, best-of-three and winner take all. Under such rules, Peale is favored—to work without pay. Peale weight 225, Graham 260. * * * Two wrestlers who haven't worked the Arena before are listed for work in the opening tag team match, It's Ted McCarthy, 220, and Dynamite Laye, 230, against Bob Hamby, 215, and Mad Mongol, 220, Dynamite and Mad are the newcomers. Welch said he'd try to get Don Whitlock back as referee. "He's not a seasoned man in the profession," Herb stated, "but he did a good job last week and tried his best to referee that six-man royal. "He had more than he could handle." * * * Admissions ar« 75 cents for adults, 29 cents for children. Reserved seats may be purchased inside the Arena. First bell at 8:30.

At the moment, racing folk are happy spectators at the world's richest Ping-Pong match. It Out in Indy Pits NUMERO UNO - Mario Andretti, a Pennsylvania product, broke the qualifying speed record at the Indianapolis Speedway by near- ly five miles per hour. MPH. He averaged 165.899 TEXAS HURLERS SHINE — EXCEPT ONE Travelers Held to Four Hits ARLINGTON, Tex. (AP) Given a one-run first-inning lead, Dallas-Fort Worth pitcher Jim Ellis allowed Arkansas only four hits Monday night and shut out the Travelers 2-0 in Texas League baseball. A single by Jesse White, a sacrifice by John Upham and a looping single to right by Von McDaniel gave the Spurs the lead in the-opening frame. White also scored the Spurs' second run, coming in from third on a double in the eighth inning. Dick Hughes, who went seven innings, took the loss. * * > Little Rafael Gomez, a 5-foot- 9, 165-pound third baseman from San Pedro, Dominican Re- public, might have been the smallest player on the field but he swung the biggest bat in the league Monday night. Gomez reached outside for low fast ball, pulled it over ttie left field fence and trotted home behind three teammates in Austin's 4-0 victory over Albuquerque. It was the outstanding batting performance of a night in which the pitchers mostly starred. El Paso's George Sherrod and Gary Fischer limited' Amarillo to five hits in a 3-1 triumph over the league leaders. * * * Gomez' blow came off starter Jim Strickland, who loaded the oases in the third inning on a Kouoi King Is Doing Better than His Owner BALTIMORE (AP) - Owner Mike Ford and Kauai King left today for New York and the June 4 Belmont Stakes to complete their bid for horse racing's Triple Crown for 3-year-olds. "Kauai King is taking this much better than I am," said Ford before leaving from Pimlico, scene of bis brilliant colt's latest triumph in the Preakness. * » * "Nothing bothers him. That marvelous disposition is what makes him a good horse." Ford accompanied Kauai King, winner of the Kentucky Derby two weeks before Saturday's Preakness victory, on the five-hour van trip to Aqueduct. single by Hal Breeden and Walks to Walt Hriniak and to pitcher Bob Daniel. Third place Albuquerque spoiled Daniel's shutout by scoring twice in the seventh inning. El Paso collected 11 hits off four Amarillo pitchers but saw 15 of its batters strike out. Amarillo starter Paul Doyle fanned 10 but a double steal executed on him by Tom Egan and Mickey Dobbins produced El Paso's first run. Doyle's balk let in another score. * * * Arkansas 000 000 000—0 4 0 Dal-FW 100 000 OlX-2 5 2 Hughes, Netwon • (8) and Breeden; Ellis and Felske. W-Ellis (3-1).

Firestone tires, Champion spark plugs and Mobil oil ran the only show in town at the "500" for years. Now Goodyear has challenged Firestone, Autolite is wrestling Champion and Ashland, Humble and Pure are moving in on Mobil. They are spending money and the racing people are happily accepting. On top of that, the woods suddenly are full of firms pleading for the chance to shell out big money to sponsor cars. Back in the good old days, an owner could figure it would take $50,000 (car cost $20-30,000) to run a first- class operation during May. It costs more now. But the owners are getting help. * . * * Sometimes an owner who wanted to cut expenses could dig up a kind soul and nail him for $1,000 to sponsor the car. For this the sponsor could watch the ear go around with "Fred Sideslip and Sons, Roofing, Siding, Plastering and Wild Animal Training Special," painted on the hood. This year $25,000 is a going price. From there it runs up to the rumored 100 grand STP, an oil additive, is paying to sponsor the car of defending champion Jimmy Clark. So far the accessory dollar war has overshadowed what looked like a decent skirmish between the Ford engine, the new monarch of the Speedway and the new supercharged rear - engine Offonhauser. But, after the first days of qualifications, the supercharged Offies were doing only slightly bet- ter than Gen. Custer against the Siout. Ford powered 17 of the 23 cars which qualified the first two days and, led by Mario Andretti, who set a qualifying record of 165.899, swept all three front positions. * * * Fastest Offy man was Parnelli Jones, who landed on the inside of the second row with one of the supercharged llllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllVUIIIIIIIIIIIIIIUIIIIIIinilliniB Major MONDAY'S STARS PITCHING - Larry Jackson, Philadelphia, pitched a three- hitter a sthe Phillies crushed Houston 9-0.

Andretti, the personable young Italian-American who has been clocked at fantastc speeds this month, ran over 168 m.p.h. in practice. His qualifying average, though slower, still nearly two miles-per-hour faster than Clark, who will start next to him. But Mario has a chassis problem. His car chassis is a Brabham, with modifications by mechanic Clint Brawner. Clark and George Snider, the other front row row occupant, have Lotus chasses. It is a characteristic of the Brabham that it does not run as well as the Lotus with a full fuel load. . * * it- Mario's crew is working day and night in search of a solution. If they can't find it, race day fans may be startled to see the fastest-drive in Speedway history slowly falling behind the pack for the first 10 or 15 laps. Once enough fuel is consumed, he can turn on the juice. So his biggest hope now is th£t he won't get too far behind before the car becomes competitive. 234.
