(AA) ewrtor Urn - ftmdiy, Mtr H, NN- 9n» itm '500' FOULED UP FROM THE START Hill Official Indy Winner By DALE BURGESS INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (AP)Londoner Graham Hill was confirmed today as winner of the 50th Indianapolis 500-mile race, but fourth-place Gordon Johncock filed a protest because no wOrk was allowed •• his damaged car before the race was restarted. Anthony Granatelli, representing runnerup Jim Clark of Scotland, had considered pro- testing Hill's victory, but he said after a conference with timers and scorers that Clark's crew had missed one time when Hill passed Clark. The final official standings were identical with the results announced at the end of Monday's wreck-marred race. The protest by Johncock was denied. Johncock's ear was damaged in a 16-car arnashup on the first ARKANSAS RANKS SIXTH IN THE SALE OF NON-RESI- dent licenses, with 144,274 out-of-staters paying us a fishing call. The state also ranks 16th in the sale of non-resident hunting licenses, according to figures released recently by the U. S. Interior Department. The department stated the figures do not measure the fishing and hunting public accurately since some states-Arkansas excluded—boosted their number of licenses with the requirement of additional tags, stamps or permits. States having the extra licenses could possibly sell one fisherman several licenses instead of just one and would rank ahead of Arkansas despite having a lower number of visiting fishermen. Of the southern states only Tennessee ranked ahead of Arkansas in sale of non-resident licenses, and Virginia was the only southern state ahead of Arkansas in non-resident hunting licenses. Hunters and fishermen (resident and non-residents) spent about 12,130,000 for licenses in Arkansas with fishermen spending the greater amount. * * * SINCE JAN. 1 OF THIS YEAR BANK FISHERMEN HAVE been required to purchase a fishing license along with all other types of anglers in Arkansas. This law rescinded the former regulation that exempted licenses for bank fishermen who fished with worms but not with lures. The current regulation simply states that a license Is required of ALL fishermen "16 or more years of age to fish in any manner with bait" in public or in private waters. The no-license ruling existed previously to favor the fishermen with low income but with the introduction of trout the new ruling eventually had to come about. Trout stocking is costly, and bank fishermen using worms could reap more than a fair share. Thus, with the new regulation the bank fisherman—who catches fish just like all other licensed fishermen—now pays his share of the cost of fishing for trout and other fish as well. A large number of bank fishermen have paid a $10 fine for not complying with the new regulation. The increase indicates that perhaps many fishermen are unaware of the new ruling or possibly are just ignoring it, Last month 197 persons were convicted of fishing without licenses, while the average number of this type of violation runs about 75 to 100 per month. Following are Arkansas Game & Fish Commission fishing regulations. LICENSES: Resident fishing licenses, S3.50.

Gome Warden Speaks • Be sure boats are licensed and registered. < • Have had some trouble in Lake Neark on fishing violations, including no license and illegal tackle. Two men fined $475 in Osceola (total) for having illegal net this put week. • You can be arrested for operating boat under influence of intoxicating beverages and fines run from $75 to $1,000 if found guilty. • Be sure boats comply with all boating i-egulatlons. These regulations are available where you register your boat at rev- cm offiM in City HalL Terry Hanners, Arkansas State game warden In charge of Mississippi County is worried. He's worried that a lot of eutdoorsmen are headed for fines and court if they don't knuckle down to the various laws and regulations. Thus, he passes along the following words, suggestions and warnings. • Reckless and negligent boat operation have been reported. • Check all safety equipment, ment, including life Jackets end their straps as tbMt things lap Of the race. His crew as not allowed to work on it in his pit until the race was restarted, under an extension of a rule that no work may be done on a car within one hour of the start of the race. The same rule was applied to four other cars that were in the pits at the second start. Granatelli said, "We concede that we missed one time when Graham Hill (Clark)." He said Clark could run no more than 150 miles an hour because of chassis problems that developed after two spins. Only seven cars finished the race. * * * Lotus manufacturer Colin Chapman of London and Studebaker representative Anthony Granatelli of Chicago immediately went into a closed conference with chief steward Harlan Fengler and representatives of the timing and scoring section. They represented Jim Clark of Scotland, whom they contended finished first instead of the second place given him. Chapman said Clark, the 1965 winner, lost only a few seconds the two times his car went into spins. He said both times Clark straightened out immediately without killing his engine and was able to combine refueling stops with the mandatory halt for inspection after a mishap. Unchanged in the other top 10 positions were: 3. Jim McElreath, Arlington, Tex.; 4. Gordon Johncock, Hastings, Mich.; 5. Mel Kenyon , Davenport, Iowa; 6. Jackie Stewart, Dunbarton, Scotland; 7. Eddie Johnson, Richmond Heights, Ohio; 8. Bobby Unser, Albuquerque, N.M., 9.Joey Leonard, San Jose, Calif.; 10. Jerry Grant, Santa Ana, Calif. * f f A massive, flaming pile-up involving 16 of the 33 starters scattered wrecks over the track and sent wheels and parts spraying into the crowd after a mishap on the first turn. Miraculously, only one driver—A.J Foyt of Houston, Tex.—and 14 spectators received only minor injuries. The 36-year-old Hill, making his first start in America's most prestigious auto race, was declared the winner after the track was cleared and the race restared with the field trimmed to 22. Clark's backers were quick to despute it. "It is impossible for Hill to be the winner," said Andrew Gra- atelli of Chicago, a part-owner of Clark's car. "We were a lap ahead of (Scot Jackie) Stewart and Hill was even farther behind. There's been an error." Another Clark team member, Gene N. Spencer, a Midwest distributor of Lotus automobiles, also was quick to lodge a protest. "I definitely believe there has been an error in the scoring,' he said. "We know we won. We can't officially protest until Tuesday, but if the results are posted and show Hill the winner, we will protest immediately. "But we believe that a check of the timing and scoring tapes will show we won." At stake - aside from the enormous prestige—is about $200,000 in first prize money. The problem is over the number of laps completed. The tradition-shrouded race was fouled up from the beginning, when No. 1 starter Mario Andretti barely had crossed the starting line in the flying start before Billy Foster of Victoria, B.C., only Canadian in the line-up, collided with Gordon Johncock of Hastings, Mich. Foster said somebody crowded him. * * * That set off a spectacular chain reaction pile-up which eliminated 11 cars and wiped out such strong contenders as Foyt, Don Branson, Champaign, 111., and Dan Gurney of Costa Mesa, Calif. The race had to be restarted because of an impassable track, delaying the show an hour and 24 niinutes. The only other wreck-caused restart was two years ago after drivers Eddie Sachs and Dave MacDonald were killed in a flaming second- lap pile-up. The numerically worst previous accident, the 15-car wreck on the first lap in 1958, left driver Pat O'Connor dead in a burning car. European road racers in the field, Hill and Gurney in particular, criticized the bunched, flying start which sets up chain reaction wrecks. The total purse and prize division will not be announced until the traditional victory dinner tonight. Clark won $166,621 last year.

Albuquerque led 8-3 when Arkansas came up for its last bat. The Travelers scored three runs and had two on when Chuck Lauritson struck out Billy Wolff with the tying run on at first. Albuquerque's Dodgers used the Travelers as stepping stones to advance in the Texas League. The five out of six series over Arkansas pulled Albuquerque within three games of leading Amarillo.

"But they were available this Tuesday night, and the fans have been asking for 'em here, so I decided to book 'em," Welch said. However, he figured two would be plenty, so Red Von Brauner is not included. Fans wouldn't be surprised if Red showed up, though. * * * "Sol," said the promoter, shaking his head, when the wrestler's name was brought up. "That's the most hated man in the business, everywhere I've known him, all around the country."
