Villanova Within Reach Of Five Wins PHILADELPHIA. AP) — One mile runs, record-smashing victory already in hand, Villanova's runners make a bid today for an unprecedented five . relay triumphs in ihe 74th annual Penn Relays. Villanova won the distance medley relay on Friday's open ing program in 9:37.9, bettering its own record of 9:39.6. Coach Jumbo Elliott's team also qualified for the mile and sprint medley • finals and are strong contenders in the two and four- HUNTING and FISHING For once in a great many weeks, the breaks .seemed .to be going the fishermen's way last weekend. The river, which had been at a very high stage for several weeks, hit a pretty good level just in time for the .weekend fishermen. The wind wasn't exactly, ideal but for us hungry fishermen, 'it was something we could put up with and although it drizzled a little, it didn't come to its usual weekend deluge. Most ol the reports from this area reported the crappie were hitting mostly around the large trees just a few feet from the bank. They seemed ready to move into the low areas to spawn but the water temperature hasn't' reached the right notch yet and the falling water has made them a little unsure. : * * * ...i Several fishermen reported that when they changed from minnows to worms and crickets to fish for bream, they found the crappie were just as eager or more so to take the worms and crickets. There were several big hauls of bream and some extremely large ones reported last "week from such lakes as North Lake and Lost Lake at Brandywine among other lakes. The only trouble will be getting into tome of these lakes due to the rapid fall of th« river. * *' '* ,-j. Things have been so tough the last fevrweeks that wen James Williams,, the "slab- crappie" and "anti-pot-hole fisherman, tried his luck at bream fishing at North Lake. It's disgracing what *>m« people will stoop to. • '••'• * - * ; * Usually, when « fisherman heara • ttg splash near the bank, they automatically look that way to sea what sort tf fish aiad« tha noise. JW» tasl weekend then was a blj iplssh at Corona Lake but anyone nearby knew immedl- •tely It wasn't • fish. In fac« it W as Mrs. Ctalr Miller who had fallen out of their boat u she and her husband up, proached the landing-alter a dtf «t Hihinf. She said she slipped but : some of the nearby fishermen, suggested her husband might have pushed her or tipped the boat. After the first shock, Mrs. Miller was .very good natured about the incident and said it wasn't her first trip into the water from a boat. . "..."...' There was one consolation. The Miller family along with. Mr. and Mrs. Sain Godwin brought home, a real good catch of fish. * * * Harry's Boat pooh, east of Marion, Ark., "reports the crappie are biting fairly good. Mary Fincher and Edith Ulm, and Doc Brewer took along : their load of fishjng poles and seined up a good catch of. crappie there last week. Anyone fishing with as many poles as they should have to buy a seining license. * * * Mr. and Mrs. Earl Walker reported a good catch of crappie at Midway, near Hughes, Ark., last week. * * * Kentucky Lake is the target for many of the area fishermen but there haven'.t been any real exciting reports from there up to now. * .*, .* About the time Big Lake got into pretty good shape several weeks ago, the gates were opened and the barrow pits were flooded and muddied. NOw that the lak* is getting down to a good level, the question is whether flu gates will be opened and all the water drained from the pits? I must say over the years there has always been a legitimate sounding answer as to why the gates wen opened or closed but it sun has not helped tha fishing aitwtion any. - :: - * * * The weather prediction for this weekend sounds aver to familiar. Rain and powlbla thundershowers. It's not going to stop mt. I'm'going to put on my rain suit and get with it anyway. It seems lately as U that'i the only way to H» hi anjr fishing Mint. Elliott passed up the 440 and 880-yard -relays as well as the 480-yard shuttle hurdles Friday to concentrate on five races he feels his boys can win. Ian Hamilton, Bob Whitehead, Frank Murphy and Dave Parick won the distance medley ver Harvard by 15 yards. An obstacle in Villanova's at- empt to win five is Rice's fine mile relay team. The defending tiampion Owls led the quali- iers', including Villanova. Johnon C. Smith, Western Michi; r an, Maryland State and Rut ers also reached the final.

Robert Elliott Elliott Gets Scholarship Robert Elliott, all-conference gridder at Blytheville High Shcool in.'the 1967; season, has signed a four-year giant-in-aid scholarship at Davidson Col-, ;ege, Dayidsonj N.C. Shifted back to his more familiar lineman role last season by Coach'Bob Williams,. Elliott played a big part in the Chickasaws' offensive and defensive units. . ... . As a sophomore, Elliott had been used as noseman and performed more than adequately. However, Williams decided to use Robert's aggressive talents at fullback, primarily for blocking, in '66 and again he came through in fine fashion as the Chicks registered a 3-6 season's log. The 6-0, 205-pound senior missed parts of several contests last season due to injuries but Ms presence on the field was more than enough to earn him Ms All-East selection.' Davidson, founded in 1836 under religious auspices, now boasts of an enrollment of well over 1,000 students and approximately 100 faculty members. Its athletic teams compete in the Southern Conference and this past seaosn, the.'Davidson basketball squad drew season- long votes in the balloting for the ten best teams in the nation. - Robert is the son of Mr. and Mrs.: John Q.

The -partisan Los Angeles crowd saw Boston build an 18- point edge and then battle to thwart a fourth-quarter rally which brought the Lakers within three. "Larry Siegfried played his greatest game as a Celtic," said Russell. "John Havlicek also played a great game and Bailey Howell did a fine job on Elgin •Baylor." The coach didn't mention his own 25 points, 16 rebounds, nine assists. and the many Laker shots he blocked, but that per formance by the 33-year-old superstar proved the deciding factor. The triumph on the Laker court provides Boston with the advantage going into Sunday night's fourth game here. "They outshot us, they outre- wunded us, they blocked more hots and they got more second shots," said Laker Coach Bill 'an Breda Kolff. Jerry West paced the Lakers with 33 points and Baylor had 28, but the latter was held to only four in the first half as Bosone point the Celtics outscored Los Angeles 24-4 and that bulge INTERESTED IN DEMOLAY?
