PRESS-TELEGRAM (PM) IM; »«A_:«H., Tm., JM. n, ms Gimme a ladder Referee Jerry Loeber comes up slightly short as he tries to break up fight between Seattle's 7-2 Tom Burleson (left) and Atlanta's 6-3 Herm Gilliam daring NBA game on Sunday. Both players drew technical fouls--and Leobcr drew a deep breath.- DONNELL CULPEPPER Vikings welcome 18-pound catfish n» caught at Irvine Irvine Lake had its usual "mini-Crowley Lake" crowd at its opening last Friday, and there was a tremendous catch of planted rainbows, plus a few other species. Pat Connelly, a Long Beach angler, passed up the trout to try for channel catfish. He joined Irvine Lake's Whopper Club with an 18-pounder caught on stink bait. The trout ranged from one-half pound to slightly more than two pounds, and most of the fish were caught in Sierra Cove, where the Metropolitan District water is pouring into the lake. There's a big plume of water in (hat cove and hungry (rout seem to realize where the most food will be, so they swim there for the feed that is being churned up by the big stream of water. General manager Russ Clcary had the usual press party on the previous Tuesday. As always, it was a "fun day" with a few nice catches, but many blanks. I drew a blank, but my guest of the day, Paul Bailey, didn't. He got a two-pound bass and two trout that went slightly more than two pounds each. [ We the trout exceptionally finicky. I tried Mcpps and other lures and didn't get a single strike. Paul tried several lures, then the worms and cheese and the bait worked fine, especially in Sierra Cove. THE FENWICK TACKLE MEN outscored all others. David Myers caught a 6Vb-pound largemouth bass on a purple jig. Myers is the public relations director for Fenwick. Steve Rudisell and Charlie Davis, also of Fenwick. got into Sierra Cove early, found a good spot and limited.out with large trout. There were numerous presentations of awards at the luncheon, which is the highlight of the press-day event. This writer got a beautiful plaque to add to a growing collection. This one was for 42 years of "outdoor writing excellence." Don Payne, "Mr. Las Vegas in public relations," flew down to give an award to Howard Ashby. vice president of Garcia-Conolon, for his service to the Abe Schiller Memorial Foundation. Norm Phillips, Western Outdoor News, got the award for the tallest fishing tale. Several of us had tried for that one, but Norm really deserved it. He then went fishing after lunch, caught a four-pound bass, put it on a stringer and headed for the dock. If anybody finds a bass on a stringer in Irvine, it will be the one that Norm cut off with the prop. There have been two or three calls about Irvine's permit fee going to $4 for an adult, deary isn't trying 10 make a fortune in one season. His prices of fish and everything else have soared. That's something else that we can blame on inflation. MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW for next Saturday, Sunday. Monday and Tuesday. There will be some minus tides that spell good clamming and you won't have to go to Pismo Beach. There wilfbe many trying the beaches in this area and farther south around San Onofre. Here is the way the tides will occur for seven days. Marling Friday of this week: Friday. 1:31 p.m.. minus O s feet; Saturday. 2:OS p.m.. -1.2: Sunday. 2:44 p.m.. 1.5: Monday. 3:21 p.m., -1.5: Tuesday. 4 p.m.. -I.3: Wedneday. -V.:7 p.m.. -0.9: Thursday. 5:"lS p m.. -0.3. Please note that Saturday. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday will afford the best lows for clamming. If you are 16 years of age or older, you will need a basic fishing license, and you should have a copy of the California Sportfishing Regulations which will spell out limits and sizes of shellfish as well as all other ocean species. With those extreme lows, there are some nice high tides for the surf fishermen. I won't list all those highs, but you can determine what they are by getting a time nnd tides booklet from some sporting goods dealers.

Propping for Connors showdown Laver facing rougher foes By BOB MARTIN Staff Writer Rod Laver, who shunned competitive tennis during most of the second half of 1974, will be ready for his $100,000 challenge match against Jimmy'Connors on Feb. 2. Or so it would seem. Let me point out, in case it escaped your notice, that the 36-year-old star won last week's CBS Tennis Classic in Puerto Rico in a field that included Stan Smith, Tom Okker, Bjorn Borg and Arthur Ashe. Connors, meanwhile, was winning the Bahamas Open at Freeport against weaker competition. But there has been no question about 22-year-old Jimbo's fitness for the winner-take-all match. This week, Rocket Rod is defending his U.S. Pro Indoor title at Philadelphia, and Connors is playing in a meet at Birmingham. Laver, an Australian living in Newport Beach, plans to go to Las Vegas Monday to start practicing at the site of the big match--the new $1500,000 indoor tennis facility at Caesar's Palace. He'll warm up on the court for six days with his Aussie pal and Newport Beach neighbor. Roy Emerson. Connors is due to spend next Monday and Tuesday at La Costa with his coach, the veteran Pancho Segura. Then the two of them will go to Las Vegas for four days of workouts at Caesar's Palace. The indoor tennis pavilion will seat 4,000 spectators, and fans should not drive or fly to Las Vegas expecting to get a seat at $5, or even $10. Tickets are priced at $25, $50 and $100, and preference is given to those who order them in blocks of eight. The only way to buy tickets, I have been told, is through Caesar's Palace, and it probably wouldn't be wise to go to Vegas without having your tickets in advance. Fortunately, there's also television, and you won't have to leave town to see the match. IT WON'T COST as much to see the U.S.-vs.-Mexico Davis Cup competition at the Palm Springs Racquet Club--that is, if you're willing to settle for less than a box seat. General admission seats for each of the three days are priced at $5 and $10, and you can order a three-day reserved seat for $22.50, a saving of $7.50, until Jan. 28. The matches will be played Jan. 31, Feb. 1 and Feb. 2. Box seats for three days are $360 for a four-seat box and §540 for a six-seat box, with $300 and $450 of the amounts tax-deductible. Proceeds go to the Desert Hospital Foundation Inc., to which checks should be made. Tickets may be purchased at Ticke : ... Iron outlets or by writing to Ua'vis Cup, ,, , P.O. Box 1747, Palm Springs 92262. , , . This is the first Davis Cup match to .'· be played in Southern California since ·'·'·· 1963, when America played Mexico at the Los Angeles Tennis Club.-It is also the first Cup competition ever- to be' · · ' played in the Palm Springs area. · ·' v y : Dennis Ralston, the nonplaying U.S. . captain, has selected Stan Smith, Roscoe . Tanner, Dick Stockton and Bob Lutz as his team in the second-round match. :_ Tom Gorman had also been on the five- '.';'. man squad. India, which reached the Davis Cup '" title round last year after upsetting Aus- ·'· · tralia, was eliminated last week by New Zealand in the 1975 competition.

NEWPORT BEACH Tennis Club is adding a $150,000 "tennis college" to its facilities. The expansion project, set for completion in.March, includes a special teaching court, six practice lanes with :: automatic ball machines, instant- replay video tape equipment and a classroom. ROBIN WILLNER, . former-UCLA star with a Ph.D. in sociology, has been appointed tennis director at the new Rio '.'. Bravo Tennis Club in Bakersfield BY PAUL McLEOD Staff Writer With only two games elapsed, the Metropolitan Conference r a c e has already experienced a few upsets, and there may be more tonight. Pierce College, fresh from a 68-65 Saturday night upset of Bakersfield, will try to dampen Long Beach City College's title hopes when the Brahmas stampede into town tonight at 8. Pasadena also hits the road tonight. It can tie the conference race in knots. If the Lancers slow front- running El Camino and Bakersfield defeats visiting Valley, combined with either a Long Beach or Pierce win, no less than four teams will be tied for the conference lead. Valley proved against Long Beach two games Metro standings Combined News Services One of the sports world's most eligible bachelors, Johnny Bench, is biting the dust. The Cincinnati Reds' catcher announced Monday that he is getting married -- to a girl he has known only 24 days. Bench, who has twice been selected the Most Valuable Player in the National League, said he will wed New York model Vickie Chesser in Cincinnati Feb. 21. "A friend of mine introduced me to her Dec. 28," said Bench. "We've been talking engagement for the last week and decided to make it public after talking to her parents and mine." JERRY QUARRY, once recognized as boxing's "great white hope." still hasn't given up his dream of becoming heavyweight champion. Quarry, in Rotonda, Fla.. Monday to compete in the third "Superstars" competition against athletes from various professional sports, said he has signed to fight Scrap Iron Johnson in Honolulu on Feb. 18 and, if BENCH QUARRY NA.MATH successful, hopes for yet another match with heavyweight champ Muhammad AH. "1 was supposed to meet Ali in February or March last year." said Quarry, "but he pulled out of it because he already had a commitment with George Foreman. Quarry said he realized his poor showing against Joe Frazier last year has delayed his getting a title shot, but he is anxious to prove that his fifth-round knockout in that fight was nothing more than "a bad night."
