While the exact point of in- erception of the schools was ot pin-pointed, information eleased by Pacific Sportfish- ing Landing and Norm's Laning indicated the schools bout four and one half hour's run from the harbor, in to- vards the east end grounds. The sudden change from the 43 Fathom Banks, where the schools have concentrated for more than a week, caught boat operator* off guard as it were and midweek results showed a decided drop from their high point.

American records were set in the relays by Arden Hills Swim Club's women's 800 meter freestyle and Ixs Angele* Athletic Club's men's 400 meter freestyle quartet. The Arden Hills team consisted of Debbie Meyer, Linda Williams, VicM King and Sue Pedersen. Swimming for Los Angeles was William Johnson, Rusa Kidder, Roy Saari and Don Havens. Most outstanding performance by a San Fernando Valley competitor has to be chalked up to Jerrie Adair, who dives for Phillips 66-Long Beach. She won her first national springboard crown winning the three-meter event. Sue Gossick was fourth. In swimming, Diane Giebel, Los Angeles Athletic Club, was the Valley's top competitor. She placed third in the 200-meter butterfly and fourth in the 100 meter fly. Only other Valley swimmer to make a final was Don Havens who finished sixth in the men's 100 meter freestyle. The meet seemed to be a continuous string of snafns with swimming and diving mixed in between.

The meet dragged, dec! sions affecting the conduct o: iie meet were not made in th most judicious manner, ant ihe weather was horrible with rain and then high humidity.

What was particularly impressive about the offensive show was the fact that Woodand Hills amassed the 19 runs in ]ust five innings! Biggest single frame for the winners was the fourth when 11 men paraded to the plate to score eight rnns. sacore, one dolphin and one yellowtail landed. Pacific SpOrtfishing came up with a count of 23 albacore. eight yellows and six Spanish jacks.

Early morning reports yesterday, from boats working the new area, stated tfcat huge schools of the longfin were swarming the water and an early bite was being enjoyed. This points to a renewal of the big daily counts which anglers have scored the past several weeks. * » * Watch for local deep sea lanes to bubble and boil with the old f a m i l i a r bass- barracuda and bonito combi nation this week end. The schools hit their mid summer pace in force just one week ago and daily results since then have soared into the higher brackets The big bite was calico bass, but growing numbers o bonito--plus the arrival in local waters of log size barra cuda--helped push results to ward the limitmark in al areas of the coast. Headlining the score 01 bass was the catch at For Hueneme Wednesday. Operators at Hnenemc listed 877 of the calico handed the hook along with 27 barracuda, 43 brmeliead, 22 halibut and a trio of salmon.
