Bill Ktnnon * * * Spring Brings The Black Bass The weather has held. We haven't had a snowstorm, and the fishing has continued to improve. Fishing in the lower reaches of Beaver is the best that it's been in quite sometime. Around Prairie Creek things couldn't be better. The black hass fishing has really broken loose, as has been predicted for quite some time, and the other species are beginning to make their appearance in this, part of the lake. The subsurface lures still seem to bring in the best results. And the grassy banks are the best areas to try for blacks. On up the lake to the Hickory Creek the f i s h i n g is just as good. Blacks in this area seem to be the most plentiful of all. The tributaries of the area also report that the angler is quite likely to have quite a bit of luck. As a whole the fishing is nrobably best on up in the White River and by now the War Eagle arms of the lake Whites are probably there and your best bet for good fishing is right in that area. Fayetteville's lakes are in v e r y good fishing shape. Sequoyah has r e p o r t e d several fine strings of crappin. And Lake Fayetteville reports that fishing has really improved. WHITE BASS Ever feel like throwing the tackle box at fish when they're not biting? Well, it just might work. Not the whole tackle box, of course, but fishing two or more lures at the same time is often better than using just one. Sound like a crazy idea? It's just another of the m a n y techniques successful anglers have been using a long time. One double-lure method popular with lake fishermen is to use a floating plug with a chaser to catch white hass and other schooling, surface- feeding fish. The large top- water plug, especially if it's one with spinners stirs up the water as would a school nf minnows. The second lure, chasing along two or three feet behind, is usually a bright colored fly or small wobbler. Identified as a straggler by the prey fish, it's usually the one they will tnke. A variation of this technique has been used successfully for crappic by replacing the chasing fly with a hair jig. letting it dangle several feet below and behind the plug. Trout are sometimes taken in lakes by rigging a multiple- fly leader (several flies tied 10 to 12 inches apart), casting it lightly upon the water. It's tricky, say the Mercury lads, but if done skillfully the effect is that of several insects alighting at one time. This will often tempt otherwise non- feeding fish into striking. River fishermen floating a stream find this technique effective when used with a streamer and several small wet flies tied ahead. So, dig into that tackle box and try throwing something extra next time fishing is slow. You may find that fish agree with the adage "The more the merrier." BOATING TIPS Very few boat owners would launch their boat if it had a hole in the bottom of the craft. Despite the recommendation of experts, many outboard owners treat their equipment in a similar shoddy fashion. As an example, 90 per cent of the outboard owners fail to drain the fuel from the tank and fuel system at the end of the season. Moisture forms in the tank and residue f r o m evaporated fuel can leave unwanted deposits on valves, carburetor components and other internal engine parts. Reports also indicate that many owners don't even bother to read the manual, that's like trying to drive without knowing how to start the engine. It's a valuable source of information and may help you to insure trouble free operation for the summer. If you're just getting that boat and motor ready for the summer t h e s e suggestions might come in handy to check before the season starts. First always check the breaker points to make sure they are in good condition. Check the spark timing for the proper setting. Make sure the ignition wiring is in top shape. The fuel system can be a source of headaches if you're not careful. New spark plugs are most often a must. It's also wise to keep an extra set on board with a set of plugs. Of course this p r o b a b l y sounds like a lot of hog wash and entirely to much trouble to bother with. It's quite a bit of trouble admitted, but an outboard expert can give your engine the once over in a very short period of time. And besides its no fun waving down boats for a tug back to the dock because of some small malfunction that you j u s t didn't have time to take care of. It seems to me that it's worth a little extra to have good dependable service from your outboard without those headaches from neglect. Ike Tomlinson Resigns Post As Athletic Director At ASU JONESBORO. Ark. (AP) ,1. A. "Ike" Tomlinson resigned Wednesday as athletic director at Arkansas State University and was succeeded by Don Floyd.

Cooches Still Disappointed Defensive Units Outshine Point Producers Arfc.nwt 1IMK, tfcuri., April 17, IfM · 1} JUMCAMAS JUCO Transfers Boost Hopes For Porker Baseball Record BAD DAY FOR BACKFIELD . . . Roger Harnish (69), Ronnie Carroll (79) and Lynn Garner (53) surround David Lundquist as backjield coach Don Breaux grimaces in the background. The aggressive defensive units held the offense to only three touchdowns during the Wednesday uiorfcouf (TIMESphoto by Ken Good). By ISH HALEY Unofficially, the Arkansas Razorback offensive units snapped the ball 128 times during yester- d a y ' s controlled scrimmage. They ran a lot of plays, but they didn't score very many points during the two hour heat wave. Moreover, the defense surprised the field with two touchdowns of their own. The battling defenders also came up with several drive stopping fumble recoveries and some pass interceptions. If head coach Frank Broyles ivas displeased about progress before the workout, he w a s downright concerned when he met reporters following the session. "It seems like we have too many who have worked hard to earn a place on the squad and then seem to be satisfied with that instead of working to get better," Broyles said. Only the defense drew a n y praise from the former Georgia Tech quarterback. "The defense is way ahead of the offense." Broyles conceded. "These boys are working hard and trying to pick up where they left off in the Sugar Bowl." Speaking about the offense. Broyles said that Chuck Dicus had done a good job in the scrimmage. Dicus ended the day with 12 catches for 120 vards. Newly converted tailback Russell Garber. the K a n s a s twister, also looked impressjve. "Garber got tired, hut he still ran over some people." Broyles pointed out. "He is still unsure of his running because of the switch. He also missed a few cuts because of his lack of experience." The Red unit (offense) started things on their own 40-yard line with David Lundquist at quarterback. They quickly ran into Dick Bumpass, Ronnie Carroll, Gordon McNulty and Mike Boschetti. After two false starts Lundquist brightened the afternoon with a 33-yard toss to Billy Lively. Following two plays and a p e n a l t y Lundquist fumbled, and Carroll got the bali for the defense. Broyles called for a field goal, and freshman Bill M c C 1 a r d lined up on the 50. His effort didn't even make the line of scrimmage as Bumpass blocked the attempt. Linebacker Bo? chetti grabbed the loose ball, and the defensive line convoyed him for a 50 yard touchdown. Lundquist got off another 30- yard play to Springdale end Roy Fears before retiring. Fears also showed some running ability as he put two moves on the defensive backfield. The new o f f e n s i v e thrust brought on John Eichler and the first unit. With G a r b e r pounding out the yardage plus a pass to D i c u s . the offense moved to the one-yard line. They had one down left and one yard to go. Garber tried the middle, but he ran into Boschetti. Bill Lewis and Lydell Thomas. The defense held, and Charley Coffey smiled. Twelve plays later, including a pass interception by Lewis Campholl. the offense tried another field goal after Roger Har- nisli. Robert Lewis. McNulty and Carroll had snuffed out the offensive candles. Once again. Bumpass broke t h r o u g h ami smacked the ball down. The offense reeled off 18 more plays before anything else happened. Starting on their own 20. they used up 13 charges to go the distance. Garber was the difference as ho carried six times and took a screen pass for 27 yards. Garber got the touchdown as he plowed over from the four behind the blocking of Gary Parsons and Jerry Dossey. McClard kicked the point. I The offpnso failed to gain a first down on their next series and moved back to the 40. Eichler wasted no time as he fired a (iO-yard b o m b to flanker S t e v e Hockersmith. McClard kicked the point. The defense got its second touchdown nine p l o y s Inter. Halfback Robert Dew returned a Gary Stockdell punt 80 yards down the east sidelines. Dew's effort came against the T-team unit, however. 11 took the offense 35 more trios, before they could produc another touchdown. Linebacker Richard Coleman and Rober Lewis along with Carroll all fumble recoveries. Eichler finally supplied a 42 yard pass to Lively for tin touchdown. L i v c 1 y took thi short pass in the middle and cu outside for the distance. Me Clard kicked the point. The offense had one more chance to score when tailback Paul BIcvins zig-zagged his w a j for 55 yards only to he caufiln from bphinrl inside t h p fivp Three plays l a t e r , however Eichler was forced into a bac pitch by linebacker C o 1 e m a i and another scoring drive was over. McClard camp hack on thr field and booted a 25-yard field goal which ended the afternoon's work. Eichler finished the day with 22 of 44 for 350 yards. Eichler also completed one to himself when Lewis batted the ball hnck into his arms. Broyles said that his staff would conduct teaching sessions both today and Friday. The next major scrimmage is set for Saturday. When everything else was over, photographer Dave Patton walked in and weighed his film. The scales lipped at 12 pounds. It was a long, hot afternoon.

Ealt · FnytttnvMIt · 442-6222 San Antonio Dumps Travs UTTLK ROCK ( A P ) - A sixth-inning double by Brock Davis broke a 2-2 tie Wednesday night to give San Antonio at 5-2 Texas League victory over Arkansas. Relief pitcher Dave A m m a n followed with a single to score Davis. A m m a n picked up the victory in relief. Arkansas jumped to a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning on Danny Napoleon's home run.

If this 1969 Razorback baseball team reaches its goal of a record 20-win season. C o a c h Wayne Robhins will have four outstanding transfers to thank. This quartet of new Porkers- two of them All-Amcrican JC transfers -- has h e l p e d to develop one of the hardest hitting teams in college basball this year. The Porkers head for Oklahoma and a two-game weekend series sporting a .312 t e a m batting average. And--the foursome of Bill Dorothy (.480. H.A. Scott (.420). Fred Wangcr (..IfiOi and Mark Jones (.321) can take credit for most of the power. They show a composite average of .388. have 57 runs-hatted in (out of 86) and 12 of the 17 home runs hit hy Arkansas this year. As a result--Arkansas boasts an 1-5 season record. The Hogs meet Oklahoma Baptist at Shawnee on Friday: | then move to Oklahoma C i t y I for a single game with OCU on , Saturday. Dorothy, a strong - fielding . second baseman via Bacone j ( 0 k l a . ) JC. only recently dropped below the .500 mark for the first time this year. He pulled a muscle last Saturday in a twin-bill with -Memphis State -- hut still went 2-for-6. From Burlington. Iowa, he earned All-Amcrican JUCO honors in 1!)68 with a .413 batting average and 14 home runs --including one in the national JC tournament. Jones came to the UofA from Crowder (Mo.) JC where he was All-American as a first baseman. He played his high school hall at Will Rogers of Tulsa. and once hit six consecu tive home runs. Now-- he's pounding the wall at a record pace for Arkansas. His s i x round-trippers ties the one-season record at Arkansas a n d includes five consecutive home, runs this year (thought to be! an NCAA record). ! Wanger. the only Arkansan on i the starting team, is from Little Rock but came to the UofA fol lowing a transfer from Kansas State. He was an outstanding three-sport star a t Hall h i g h school. All-Conferernc in basketball and All-State in foot- hall. He leads the tcnm in doubles with five. Scott is the midget of the group at 5'fl and 165 pounds. Rut the left fielder has fooled folks with his power. His l(i RBI's trails only Jones (who has 1!)) and he has nine extra base hits out of 21. From Cincinnati. Ohio, he came to Arkansas via Western Kentucky. T w o others regulars are above the .300 for the year-the defending hatting champion .Mike Pryor. center fielder from Jackson. Miss. (.3G7i and shortstop Clya (Budcla) S t r i c k l i n . n l so from Jackson (.305). Eliminate the reserves who see ir lion--and the pitchers--and this 1969 ICazorback starting lineup has a healthy .341 hatting average. Still--Arkansas' success i t not entirely a matter of hitting. t h e Porkers were cautious about their mound staff hack in March, but three strong veterans have delivered in t h e clutch. Senior Butch Hopkins of Covington. Tenn.. is 4-1 for the year with a 0.7 earned run average and 35 strikeouts in as many innings: junior J e r r y Blackwood of Bedford. Texas, is 30 with a 1.71 E R A : and sophomore Terry Verbiage of Kansas City, Mo., is 3-1 with a 2.12 ERA. After the two-game Oklahoma series. -Arkansas moves to Texas for its only SWC competition of the year. T h e Porkers meet TCU at F o r t Worth on Monday, and SMU at Dallas on Tuesday in single games.
