IT, im Prepfcyes 'mile, 2-mile in Sunkist ."Junior Eric Hulst of Laguna Beach will attempt a difficult mile, 2- riule double at Saturday flight's high school portion of'..the Sunkist Indoor track meet at the L.A. Sports Arena. ." Hulst, state runnerup in 8.:S0.5 as a sophomore last year, later won the U.S.-Russia juniors 10,000 meters. He was third in the. Sunkist mile a year ago despite losing a shoe on the second lap. The odds-on favorite at two miles, Hulst will have tol contend with Ralph Serha of Loara in the mile. Serna, who has an outdoor best of 4:07.6 compared to Hulst's 4:09.1, is coming off an unbeaten cross country campaign. Both figure to threaten the meet record of 4:14.7 set by former Washington State competitor Rick Riley in 1965 when he was at Ferris High in Spokane. In the 640 relay, Poly will be represented by a team of Michael Flippen, Michael Washington, Jimmy Clinton and Diego Robinson.

He had planted a ton of trout just prior to the opening and will continue to do the same each Thursday. Several hundred nn?U'vs wtnt tlirouqli the Sherwood gate.' The lake will be open on a (Lilly basis, with hours from B a.m. to sunset. There are rental boats, but no motors. However, fishermen may take their own motors if they wish, but the engines must, be limited to six horsepower qnd may not be used until after 8 a.m. Sherwood is a private lake and has many beautiful homes. Public fishing, like (hat at many other private lakes, is on a permit basis. Sherwood is a beautiful little lake just a few miles from Thousand Oaks, reached via the Ventura Freeway. No overnight camping is allowed, but there are picnic facilities. Although trout will be planted from now until the surface temperature becomes too warm for trout, it is equally famous for its natural populations of bluegill, crappie and catfish. Also, there is always the chance for a lunker bass. There are no launching ramps for privately owned boats. The small resort has a lunch counter and a tackle shop. Reservations may be made by calling (805) 4952512. THE LAST OF THE GENERAL waterfowl hunting seasons in California will close Sunday at sunset, but the season on black brant will start Saturday and continue through Feb. 23. Ducks, geese, coots, gallinules and jacksnipe will definitely be no-nos after sunset Sunday. The limits on black brant will be four per day and eight in possession if you can find them. Brant is a seagoing goose and feeds on eel grass, not fish, on outgoing tides. It's a real trick to get close enough to shoot the birds, and there are few places along the California coast where they can be found. My only experience with brant occurred 10 or 12 years ago when I was initiated into the sport by some friends .at San Quintin Bay, Baja California. The meat of the black brant is very dark and certainly not the most palatable of the waterfowl families. As this year's waterfowl season is phased out, a change will take place in the sizes of shot used in shotgun shells. The Fish and Game Commission has placed a ban on use of shot larger than No. 2, with the effective date Monday of next week. BB and buckshot sizes of shot will be prohibited. Also, the shot must be loose within the shell. The provisions, which were suggested by Commissioner Peter T. Fletcher, were designed to reduce crippling losses of waterfowl. . AVIAN CHOLERA, AN ANNUAL midwinter visitor to California, has struck down some waterfowl in Sacramento Valley. The disease started on Christmas Day at !he Colusa and Sutter National Wildlife Refuges and spread rapidly to the southern end of the Yolo Bypass and then to Victoria, Mandeville and McDonald Islands in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. If compared with other years, the losses of ducks and geese have been light. It can strike down from a few hundred birds to many thousands. Mert Rosen, DFG pathologist, said that the losses so far have been among the pintails, white-fronted geese, snow geese, coots and a few swans'-- about 1,400 by actual count. Some hunters were taking the birds on the ground and were warned that they would be dangerous. They were told to examine the livers of the birds and discard any that had white spots on the livers. Gun club operators will be advised to drain all areas immediately after the close of the season to prevent spread of the disease. It could continue until the waterfowl go north in the spring. The disease is so toxic that one seldom sees a sick aii-rt. It's either healthy or dead: cholera works that fast on waterfowl. The disease took 12,000 birds last \-ear, 14.700 in the previous winter season and 37,/CO in 1970-71. Thursday's fights Blackman tops PARI^-Jean Waleo.

MOTORCYCLE RACING- Raeing director Don Basile begins his second year at South '75 VW SCIROCCO DEBUTS...front-wheel drive C-A.R. NOTES By BILL EMERY Associate Auto Editor Volkswagen's new super coupe, the 1975 Scirocco sports car, is now in the Southland VW dealer showrooms. A front- wheel-drive four-place sports car, the Scirocco with 4-speed transmission will go O-to-50 in about 8 seconds and deliver up to 41 miles-per-gallon on the highway and in the neighborhood of 28 rapg in town. .Designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Turin, Italy, the German-built 3-door hatchback combines quality materials and workmanship with economy and performance. It's built solid and feels solid on rough terrain. Door windows have heavy rubber moldings inside and outside to double the wind resistance and quietness of wind noise past the windows at high speed. Detailing reflects quality throughout. Scirocco is VW's second water-cooled, front-wheel- drive car with Italian design. However, instead of the engine set in-line under the front hood, the new Scirocco 4-cylinder engine is mounted crosswise up front and tipped 20 degrees to the rear for easy access to spark plugs, oil filter and for better weight distribution front to rear. Service intervals are called for only every 15,000 miles. Reclining front bucket seats with bright tartan upholstery are standard and the rear seat area can be converted to handle bulky objects or additional luggage. The big hatchback provides access to a concealed lug- gage area, whose inner lid lifts automatically when the hatch is opened. A fully synchronized stick shift transmission is standard as are rack and pinion steering, power front disc brakes, steel belted radial tires, four wheel independent suspension, a heated rear window defogger and tinted glass. Automatic transmission and air conditioning are among the options available. Also new is the independent stabilizer rear axle that consists of a transverse T-beam with trailing arms that support the wheels and maintain track and camber. Each wheel can move independently with bumps and the harder the bump, the more the flexing T-beam resists. Road handling with this independent suspension is phenomenal.
