McLaren cars won upwards o£ $100.000 in the six-race series, McLaren Racers Pay Off By BOB COCHNAR NBA Automotive Editor NEW YORK - (NEA) - He is young and he looks eager, interested, alert. In a business suit, he could be a successful (should I say it? newspaper- sons for our successes> ,, says , explainSi "depends very much Bruce McLaren happens to be a business executive who believes in his product to such an extent that he regularly trusts, it with his, life. McLaren, a 29- year-old New Zealander, builds and drives racing cars. And he has had a fair amount ef success. With teammate and fellow New Zealander Denny Hume, McLaren dominated the popular Canadian - American Challenge Cup series this year. Like, they won five of the six races — in McLaren Group 7 cars. Bruce was in town the-other day — enroute from Hawaii to England — fairly bubbling with plans and ideas for next season. Having sold his victorious No. 4 car to Roger Penske, wealthy Philadelphia sportsman and former driver, he's building a new car for 1968. "Why sell a winner?" he repeated my question. "Well, this year's winner is not necessarily next year's winner. Besides, in the last couple of races Jim Hall was pushing me hard in his Chaparral and I don't want that to happen next year." McLaren, speaking for his col-1 on the success of the drivers — leagues past, present and future, "is the Tasman series which is supported by New Zealand automobile clubs as well as a lot of spectators. "There's money to be won and the best drivers are sent to Europe for experience on the circuits. We have a pretty good record, I guess." None of the aforementioned Aussics and Kiwis lives Down Under any more, however. "It's a bit far away, don't you think" asks McLaren. Building and selling racing cars, McLaren freely admits, is not exactly the world's most lucrative occupation. The mar- and that means Denny and me. We've had a good year, so we expect to sell srca. What happens if we have a not-so-good year? I prefer not to contemplate that." What he would really like, after ,he establishes a string of victories for McLaren racing cars, is to work out "some kind of arrangement'" with a major manufacturer. "Good old Carroll Shelby," he muse s. "What a nice situation. Look at all those Shelby Mustangs. Wouldn't it be nice to have a McLaren Triumph or a McLaren Camaro or a McLaren Whatnot?" ket, all things considered, is | Meanwhile, Bruce McLaren minute.

(AP) One of nature's most amazing I rituals, already gone forever in most of the United States, has been drastically altered by the Northwest's many dams. For thousands of centuries nalmon made their voyages up' the nation's rivers to lay their' eggs and die. I But when man built water] wheels and dumped wastes Into | water the fish no longer were able to swim in most Eastern rivers and became practically extinct there. In the less populous Northwest, salmon still are able to hatch in a mountain stream. Driven by some compelling force, they travel down the Columbia River to the ocean, often 1,000 miles away. The salmon disappear into the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, but from two to six years later, in one of those mysteries that nature creates, they reappear, now fullgrown. Desperately, compulsively, at least 1.5 million fish fight their way upstream each year, always seeking the place they duced artificially In hatcheries. < nets who do not honor the ply.

All salmon were born this way for thousands of years. But in the past 32 years, 24 dams have been built on the Columbia and Snake rivers, two of the prime sources of Pacific salmon. The result is that half of the water in the Columbia system is through nine dams. CARMICHAELS, Pa.
