THURS., JULY \6, 1964, Loke Chorles American Press SOUTHWEST By Frank Adams and Red Kohnke DEEP SEA sport fishing out of Cameron had a good (lurry last week but on Saturday, winds picked up, swung to the southwest and the fishing took a nosedive. A southwest wind has never been Rood, both offshore nnd in Big Lake. And once again, fishermen heading out found poor results. Walter ancl Rex Miller's boat, the Pirate, Rot in one good trip on Friday before conditions muddled. The 1'irate's fishermen pick up M nice dolphin, from four to seven pounds, in a good rip just, north of the Magnolia platforms. In addition to the dolphin, Ihr- Pirate landed seven cobia. one of which weighed 56 pounds, a king and some Spanish mackerel. * * + SPECKLED TROUT fishermen had some of the best fun of season hist week, reporting good catches on shrimp and lures. Better catches were all reported from the West Cove section where the specks were found on the many oyster reefs. Some of the best speck lures in that area proved to be (ho Mr. Champ with a yellow bucktail, Tony Acetta's small spoon with yellow trailer, and a Johnson silver spoon. Many boats were in the area Saturday but the stiff southwest wind ruined the fishing for most sportsmen. Some of them, however, managed to pick up a few small red fish working the banks and cuts. » » * STEVE HARMON, chief of education and publicity for the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission, reports that the wildlife museum in New Orleans will now be open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Due to a decline in attendance, weekends and holidays have been omitted from the schedule, he said. The museum, located in the Wildlife ancl Fisheries Building at 400 Royal St., gives visitors the chance to see the ivory billed woodpecker, now believed extinct, and rare birds such as the whooping crane, whistling swan and others. A trip through the museum, especially for the younger sportsmen, is well worth the time. * • • NEW OFFICERS have taken over control of the Southwest Louisiana Fishing Club, Inc., sponsors of the annual deep sea and inland fishing rodeo at Cameron. Elected president at the club's annual awards night recently was Lake Charles sportsman Dr. J. W. Crookshank. Serving with him are Sam H. Guillory, vice president; J. Marshall Smith, treasurer; and Lou Fonley, secretary. The club's board has been dissolved, as is custom, and within a few weeks, a new board will be appointed by Dr. Crookshank. Reports from the club show that over 500 registered spoilsmen took part in the July 4th weekend rodeo and better than HO large deep sea fishing boats were registered. Actually, many more boats took part but many were not registered. A quick, spot check of contestant renort cards reveals no serious complaints from rodeo fishermen. The small boat fishermen arc still asking for better boat launching facilities in Cameron, calling attention to an area which could stand some effort. At a later date. Dr. Crookshank is to release a complete report on cards returned by rodeo fishermen. —KOHNKE. Pelicans Bombard Rams In Mid-City Senior Tilt j American Track Stars Feeling Financial Squeeze on Training • *^ BOSTON (AFi—lohnl Thomas says he may not nliake ml make the Olympics in October^ Harold Connolly says this is definitely the last Olympic try j for him and his wife, Olga. Aiiid Chicago's latest gift to trtick, Tom O'Hara, has withdrawn) from the U.S. squad which will meet the Russians July 25-26. Although there is no. apparent connection between lihe three stories, the three top U.S. Olympic hopefuls all have, the same ; complaint-money, or rather, i the lack of it. ! Thomas, the world's best high jumper until replaced by Valery Bnimel of Russia and still the best in the United States, said Wednesday he may not be able to go to the Olympics in I Tokyo if he can't find a job : which will allow him time off ' for training. | The former Boston University performer warned that others 'are in the same boat. "Only those of us who are able to stick to our training despite serious financial difficulties will get to Tokyo," he said. "I lost my job before the Olympic tryouts because I had taken so much time off to compete in various meets." He said his employer knew he was to compete in the meets before Thomas was hired "but, after all, he has to run a business and I wasn't bringing in any money while I was off com- peting," Among the other track stars he said were having financial difficulties were hurdler Hayes Jones ancl broad jumper Ralph Boston. Connolly, who holds the world record for the hammer throw and who also has qualified for the Olympics this year with Thomas, said: "It means a sacrifice but we are going all out to win this year—and then retire."

The financial responsibilities he and his wife face include a 5-year old son, twins born last year and Mrs. Connolly's parents. Right now both he and the Czechoslovakian-born Olga, the Olympic record holder in the discus, are working for the Recreation Department in Culver City. Calif., in jobs which give them enough money to get by and allow them to keep in shape for an Olympic effort. Dan Ferris, an emeritus official of the Amateur Athletic Union, said O'Hara resigned from the U.S.-Russia meet to stay in Chicago where his father suffered a heart attack two weeks ago and where he has taken a job. O'Hara could not be reached for comment on his plans for the Olympics Wednesday night but his mother said the 135- pound miler definitely would go to Tokyo in October. O'Hara and Dyrol Burleson of Oregon were expected to give the United States a 1-2 finish in the 1,500-meter event at Los Angeles against. Russia. Together they formed perhaps the best 1-2 punch the United States ever has had in the 1,500 meter, the so-called metric mile.
