A Lint About — HUNTING and FISHING By WOODY There's this particular fisherman who likes to fish as well as anyone who ever wet .aJiook. There just didn't seem jo be enough days off to satis- fe his desire for the outdoor •port. One Saturday not too long ago he caught the fish in a biting mood and really sacked thepi up. The condition of the Vater and weather seemed ideal for a two-day weekend of'good fishing. But alas, his wife insisted he attend church with her and the children inpst every Sunday. , He just had to figure a way to! persuade his wife to let him go.lhal Sunday, That night he didn't even hint lie would like to. go fishing the next day. , Early next morning, he shook his wife and told her he was going fishing. She mumb- ]ed, "OK," and went back to sleep immediately *fW night upon his returning from the fishing trip, he re'ijlly caught hades from his wife. "How come you went fishing today?" she asked in a irritated voice, "I asked you this morning siid you said it was alright," he answered. 1 '"You're pretty smart. You tnow I don't have much sense when I first awaken in the morning. I thought it was Sal- day morning." the husband tried to plead innocent, but he wasn't fooling anyone. Men, you just have to taka advantage of every opportunity unless, of course, you have a wife who likes to fish also. * * * There's not much excitement going on in the area at this time but there are a few fishermen out trying their luck at varolus places about every day. With warm weather spring approaching, things should liven a great deal. The river is rising and should put the water in the willows of Brandywine again for one more tty at the crappie. Trolling there the past two weeks has varied from • very good to only fair. * t * As the warm weather approaches, we should begin to hear reports from Mallard Lake, at Big Lake. It's an ideal spot for the bank fishermen. The catfish are expected to be around the pound mark this year and should provide for good sport and some good eating. The bass, will provide for some good sport for the area fishermen. Pear/'s Finish Loses Sparkle By KEN RAPPOPORT | PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Earl the Pearl was dull, but the Philadelphia 70ers' flamboyant backcourt ace, played it close to the vest with sensational Baltimore rookie Earl Monroe and blunted his scoring threat, as Philadelphia defeated the Bul•lets 122-115 in a National Basketball Association game Fri day night. "Jones was terrific," 76er Earl Monroe Coach Alex Hannum said. "He was obviously responsible for Monroe's subpar game." Monroe, No. 3 scorer in the NBA and a prime candidate for rookie of the year honors, hit on only three shots from the field, scoring seven points. The victory continued the 76ers' mastery over Baltimore. It was Philadelphia's seventh straight win over the Bullets and virtually crushed their hopes of making the playoffs. Hal Greer poured in 29 points to spearhead the Philadelphia offense. iE'In other NBA action, Los Angeles whipped New York 123=JP, Detroit nipped San Francis- 3$ 122-118 and Seattle trounced Chicago 113-101. ^Elgin Baylor scored 37 points sand grabbed 13 rebounds to lead ifjie Los Angeles Lakers .past jfjew York.

Sebring Is not exactly the vacation paradise of Florida, nor is it loaded with industry. And were it not for the fact that 18 years ago a Russian- born aviation engineer discovered an abandoned bomber base in Sebring, the town would be savoring its orange blossoms year-round. In 1950, the very first road race at Sebring, engineered by Alec Ulmann, shattered the tranquility and many townsfolk still haven't accepted the cars, the noise and the people. But the money does help to calm the nerves. Twelve grueling hours of racing, scheduled this year for Saturday, has forever Identified Sebring with such hallowed racing spots as be- Mans, Nurburgring and Targa Fiona and has bestowed upon Ulmann the title of The Man Who Brought International Road Racing to th« United States. For many people, college students especially, Sebring has becorne The Place to Go in March. The poor town is jostled into grudging submission, raising room and food rates to compensate for the indispositions caused by thousands of foreigners (foreigners in this case meaning any body not from Highlands County). This year, the race-hardened visitor gets to see three races—a trans-American sedan championship, an International 'Formula Vee race and, of course, Big Daddy: Big Daddy attracts a crowd of competitors from all parts of the world, which gives Sebring, for a week at least, an International flavor unknown even in Palm Beach. Drivers from Switzerland, Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Italy, England, Ecuador, Canada, Belgium, France, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Venezuela will be on hand to sample such delicacies as Key Lime Pie, fried chicken, grits and corn bread. Unfortunately for Europeans, campari- soda is not standard fare. Although there will be plenty of vehicles to be seen on the airport circuit, the cars which generate the most interest are known as prototypes—one-of-a-kind models which are supposedly being tested: Ultimately, their manufacturers say, the prototypes' best features will turn up in production models. This is mostly hooey for the cars are built to race, period. But nobody cares much since it gives spectators the thrill of seeing precision instruments run for 12 hours. The prototypes entered by \LKC ULMANN goes where thfc action is. In June, it's LcMans (pictured here with Chaparral) and in .March, .it's Sebring, America's Big Daddy endurance race. team takes care of the dra- haven't heard it yet, the hora the Porsche works very prate ably will wind up in i-2^3 positions, as they did in February's 24 Hours of Daytona, that rival racing plant well northeast of Sebring. • A couple of well-raced Ford GT-40s will carry the FoMoCo banner and .several privately owned Ferraris will uphold the honor and' glory' 'of .the Cornmendatore : frbm Modena; Two Howmet turbine cars add some silent spark and actor James Garner's Corvette beaten by Minnesota 106-95, the Rockets slipped into third place, ooosting Dallas into second. The problem is that New Orleans, first in the division, also won Friday, beating Houston 108-99 and now the Bucs' magic number to clinch toe titte is onty three. In other ABA games Friday, Kentucky beat Indiana 108-96. Anaheim edged Oakland 116-113 Lcs Hunter scored 32 points leading Minnesota past Denver and Mel Daniels and Gary Kell< er both added 21. Larry Jones had 28 for the Rockets. Jimmy Jones' 32 points sparked New Orleans to its important triumph. Doug Moe had 25 for the Bucs while Art Becker' led Houston with 24. Kentucky oulscored Indiana 18-5 in the final portion of the last quarter to outdistance the Pacers. Darel Carrier of the Colonels led all scorers with 32 points. Anaheim handed Oakland its 12th straight defeat despite 27 points by the losers' Jim Hadnot. Boom, Boom, Boom Is Eddies First Goal Rock; Colavito By JACK HAND Associated Press Sports Writer SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) - If ? Eddie Stanky's plans work out, they won't be calling his Chicago White Sox the hitless wonders this season. "I'm going to play my best eight hitters, regardless of defense," said Stanky. "I'm tired of all those squeakers. I'm for * bats." Stanky's party platform may be tough to carry out. The White Sox have added the .300-plus bat of Tommy Davis and hope to get extra mileage out of veterans like Ken Boyer and Rocky ColavJto. But the big plus still is the pitching staff.

New York, A, vs. Mexico City Reds at Mexico City, night on last season's .225 team batting average, ninth in the league. Chicago was first in pitching, second in double plays but ninth in home runs with only 9. If the Sox are to win the pennant it will be up to the formidable pitching of Gary Peters, Joe Horlen and Tommy John, plus a magnificant bullpen. Horlen is coming off a 19-7 year and a 2.06 earned run average that led the league. Peters was 16-11 but John slipped to 10-13. Jack Fisher, a veteran •with a 9-18 record with the New York Mets,. figures to be the fourth starter,, taking over the spot vacated when Bruce Howard was traded to Baltimore. In addition to scheduling nine regular season games in Milwaukee for this summer, the White Sox front office was busy swapping players during the off season. Don Buford, Roger Nelson and Howard went to Baltimore, Tommie Agee, J.C. Martin and Al Weis to the Mets and Ron Hansen, Dennis Higgins and Steve Jones to Washington. Luis Aparaicio is back for another turn at Comiskey Park after five years in Baltimore and he brings with him Russ Snyder. Tommy Davis and a couple of kids, catcher Dick Booer and pitcher Billy Wynne are the new arrivals from the Mets. Second baseman Tim Cullen and pitchers Buster Narum and Bob Priddy have moved over from Washington. Stanky's pitching staff also has Fred Klages (6-9 at Indianapolis) .or Cisco Carlos (11-8 at Indianapolis), both of whom were impressive in trials at Chicago. Hoyt Wilhelm still is the master of the bullpen at 44 and is coming off his best year, 8-3 with a 1.31 earned run average. Bob Locker, 7-5, Don McMation, 6-2 with Boston and Chicago and Wilbur Wood, 4-2, a left-handed knuckler to go with Wilhelra's right-handed dipsy doodles, form the best relief corps in the league. Priddy, 3-7 at Washington, might crack the list. Outside of Aparicio at shortstop, Stanky's infield is unsettled. "We have Tommy McCraw at first base," said Stanley. "But I'm also working Boyer, Pete Ward and Davis there. 1 know Cullen can play second but I am looking at a kid, Dick Littleton (.262 at Evansvilie). At third we have Boyer and Ward. We also will see Ward in the outfield. Davis undoubtedly will hold down one regular outfield job and Ken Berry and Russ Snyder will fight it out for center. In ad- ditori to Colavito, Stanky will try Ward in the outfield and Charley Bradford who hit .271 at Indianapolis. Duane Josephson, handicapped by injuries during a .238 rookie season, probably will wind up as No. 1 catcher. Stanky is going for the man but he knows -he will sink or swim with his pitching. It , is good enough to make the White Sox a strong pennant factor in a •well-balanced league.
