Season opens Saturday Massive trout plants should improve catch • A massive plant of about 130,000 fighting rainbow trout of catchable size is being made by the Department of Fish and Game this week in 44 roadside lakes and streams of the Inyo- Jlono area to test the mettle of anglers in what promises to be an excellent opening of the general trout season this Saturday, May 1. Total weight of the trout being stocked this week amounts to some 30,000 pounds, according to Lloyd Hume, supervisor of Inyo-Mono hatcheries. Clear weather is predicted for the opener, current water conditions are good, and unless strong winds come up the DFG anticipates some terrific action throughout the opening weekend. In addition to the catchable size rainbows, there should be good numbers of larger trout in many waters to provide trophy fish for lucky anglers. trout were as surplus Some of these stocked last fall broodEsh in such waters as Pleasant Valley Reservoir, the June Lake Loop, Rock Creek, Bridgeport Reservoir, Twin Lakes, and Mammoth Lakes. Mammoth Lakes, however, are likely to be frozen over for the opener, the DFG said. Many anglers are expected to try their luck at the East Walker River, where the DFG has stocked about 3,000 catch- able size brown trout of the Massachusetts strain. Evaluation of the Massachusetts brown trout program will be made through DFG creel checks weight during the 1965 angling season. Fisheries personnel will also check creels at other key waters during opening weekend. A ten trout limit will go into effect for Southern California, along with the rest of the state on Saturday, the Department of Fish and Game reminded South land anglers. This limit will remain in effect through October 31, after which it will revert to the winter limit of five trout. Exceptions to the rule are Orange and San Diego counties, which have had a ten trout limit since February 27. This limit will be reduced to five on September 11. Trout season is open all year in the counties of Santa Barbara, Ventura, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, Riverside, Orange, San Diego and Imperial. The Colorado River-Salton Sea area, however is tha only one with a year-round ten trout limit. Crowley Lake, the famed Mono County "lair of the tackle busters," is loaded with trout and should provide excellent fishing on the opening weekend, if the current good weather holds and the winds stay down. Gill net samplings taken by DFG biologists last week revealed that subcatchable rainbow trout planted last year have had an excellent overwinter growth and will average better than a foot in length and about a pound in weight. Crowley Lake has a special seven fish or 10 pound limit.

"Aside from a few pitches, 1 wasn't too disappointed with Osteen's performance," Alston said. "But I want to congratulate Veale for an outstanding effort. He has one of the best fast balls in the majors." Veale allowed only three hits "Marichal just can't be anyjj n recording his second shutout tougher on us than Veale," manager Walt Alston said. "I thought Veale pitched one hell- uva fine game." Where Wednesday night's contest was a battle of left- handers with Claude Osteen opposing Veale, tonight the right- handers take over as Don Drysdale is Marichal's opponent. Alston moved Ron Fairly to the cleanup spot, dropping Tommy Davis to fifth in the batting order with catcher John Roseboro sixth and then rookie Jim Lefebvre and Dick Tra- of the season and blanking the Dodgers for the first time this year. The tall Pirates hurler said his routine against the Dodgers was to pitch low and away using the fast ball against right- handers and a curve against southpaw batters. "I hope this win can get us going," he added. "We're a better team than we've looked so far." But it took a clutch double by Donn Clendenon in the eighth inning to put the only defend their 'respective titles.

Although he was hit freely for seven innings, Osteen kept the Pirates scoreless until the late stages. But Osteen gave up nine hits to Veale's three and eventually the Pirates put them together for the winning runs to snap a six-game losing streak, their longest in two years. and the big guy just snickered. "Twenty-five hours a year? If this gets around, collective bargaining will collapse." Pressed further, Howard said the theory was as full of holes as a hod carrier's overalls: "First place, show me a Ditcher who's just retired the side with bases full and 50,000 people plus a 90 degree sun ;laring down, and I'll show you a man who has done a full week's work.

Chance tells Philadelphia Phillies to be patient By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) — Dean Chance, speaking in behalf of his old buddy, Bo Belinsky, has a brief piece of advice for the Philadelphia Phillies — be patient. Although an off-season trade which sent Belinsky from the Los Angeles Angels to the Phillies broke up a working association between him and Chance, the two pitchers still form baseball's No. 1 Damon and Pythias combination. Each continues to follow the other's fortunes closely and even though he has been beset with spring miseries of his own, it has not escaped Chance's notice that Belinsky has been roughed up since -winning his first game for the Phils. "He'll get going, I know he will," said the Angel ace with complete conviction in his voice. "Bo is a slow starter and this cold weather doesn't help. But if the Phillies -will be a little patient with him they won't be sorry. He's a fine pitcher and he'll be throwing shutouts soon. "Miss him? Darn right I do. He'll give you the shirt off his back. You don't find fellows like him every where." Typically, Chance seems more concerned with Belinsky's problems than his own, although he has more than his share since reporting to the Angels for spring training at Palm Springs, Calif., in late February. "Fr t, this guy Vic Rozov- sky with the Cubs hit me with a lone drive on my right arm and two weeks later Willie Mays hit me with-another loner on the back of my left leg," Chance laughed. "Mays almost took my leg off. If Roznovsky hit me that hard, he would've broken my arm. "Anyway, I didn't get to pitch much in spring training. Only about 24 innings. Then when I pitched the second game of the season against the Yankees I developed a blister on the index finger of my throwing hand." Chance held up the finger and there was a flesh - colored bandage around it. Despite the fact the finger still bothered him, he beat the Yankees 6-3 Saturday for his first victory of the season and his fifth straight over the American League champs. The 23 - year- old Chance became the youngest winner in the history of the Cy Young Award when he was named the outstanding pitcher in the majors for 1964. Apart form winning 20 games and losing only nine last year. Chance hurled 11 shutouts, com piled a brilliant 1.65 earned run average and finished fifth in the balloting for the league's Mos Valuable Player award.

(NEA Telephoto) Twelve 3-year-ofds fry to enter for Saturday Night stock car racing opens Saturday The Western States Racing Club opens the 1965 night racing season at the Orange Show Speedway in San Bernardino iis Saturday May 1, with a double-header stock car and super-modified show. Race Director, Mel Allen, has planned well over 100 laps of ? ark star b « at nim by a head LOUISVILLE, Ky. (UPI) — A dozen 3-year-olds were expected to be entered today for Saturday's running of the Kentucky Derby but most knowing observers here still had vivid memories of a horse from the past. That horse was Native Dancer, who suffered the only defeat of his brilliant career when racing with two trophy dashes, neat races, semi-mains, and two forty lap main events for double points to top the evening. The double-point announcement always adds to the action with the drivers going flat out for a win. Qualifying gets underway at 6:30 p.m. with the first race getting the flag at 8:30 p.m. A field of over 80 stock cars will be on hand for the race with 1964 champion Don Prather out to protect his title. A newcomer to stock car competition this year will be "Tiger" Jim Roessler of San Bernardino in a 1956 Ford hardtop. Roessler looked good in practice and will be hard to beat. Other stock drivers in action will be Bobo Cotton of Indio, Cecil Bullard, Palm Springs; Chuck Becker Jr., San Bernardino; Fred Peake, Redlands and many more. The modified division is still running unlimited and a large field of cars has been promised for opening night. Last year's champions, Jay East of Colton and Vallie Engelauf of Riverside, will both be back in action and out to win. Roessler, third in 1964 point standings, will be out to regain the No. 1 he wore for so many years. The top three will be challenged by Stan Schedekier, Chuck Robbins and Preacher Rogers all of San Bernardino; Bob Simmons, Southgate; Jack Austin, Downey; Bill Marler Bloomington; and Ray Blickeri of Sunnymead along with many other late comers.

This time Bold Lad is a strong favorite against Mrs. Ada L. Rice's Lucky Debonair, Powhatan Stable's Tom Rolfe, Warner Stable's Native Charger, Mrs. Ben Cohen's Hail To All, Isidor Bieber's Flag Raiser, Earl Allen's Swift Ruler, Ogden Phipps' Dapper Dan, Mrs. Mary Keim's Mr. Pak, Perne L. Grissom's Carpenter's Rule, John Mecom's Narushua and Mrs. Core. Janet Stokeley's Apple Bold Lad is trained by Bit Winfrey, who also trained Na- ive Dancer. Native Dancer was jacked down to 7 to 10 in the Kentucky derby and his defeat las taken the edge off Winfrey's optimism in the 91st running of the mile and one- quarter race. At the same time those with lorses slated to run against Bold Lad were buoyed by tha memory of the upset for Dark Star was 25 to 1 when he hung it on Native Dancer. "In my book Bold Lad should be the favorite," Winfrey said. "I don't know what he could have done that he hasn't done. I would feel more confident if I could forget Native Dancer's defeat for I always thought he was the best horse, but he was bumped on the clubhouse turn. In itself that wasn't too bad but it led to a series of things which I feel cost him the race." That incident came under the heading of "racing luck" and several trainers were counting upon Dame Fortune to get their horses home in front in the current rose run. Kendall in draw with Don Fullmer LAS VEGAS (UPI) — Andy Kendall, 169, Portland, dominated the last four rounds Tuesday night to battle Don Fullmer, 165, West Jordan, Utah, to a draw in their 10-round "strip fight-of-the-week" at the Hacienda Hotel. Kendall, ranked 10th in the light-heavyweight division by the World Boxing Association, trailed in the first half of the fight on solid punches from Fullmer. But when the main event was over, which saw no knockdowns, one judge scored the fight even and the other two had split cards. ADDED CRUISE NEW YORK (UPI) — An additional 13-day Caribbean cruise has been scheduled for Furness Lines' Ocean Monarch, leaving New York Sept. 11. Popularity of the Ocean Monarch summer cruises to the Caribbean has created a demand for the late summer cruise, according to Fred Drexel, passenger traffic manager. Moris pulls leg muscle NEW YORK (UPI) - Roger Maris, hard-hitting rightfielder of the New York Yankees, expects to learn Friday how long he will be forced out of the lineup because of a pulled hamstring muscle. Maris, considered a fine fielder as well as a potent batter, injured his right leg while making a diving catch to rob Kansas City left fielder Bert Cam- paneris of a probable extra- base hit Wednesday. Maris, dashing toward center field, caught the ball backhanded and crashed to the turf. He said later he felt a slight cramp in the leg as he started to sprint. Team doctors will examine the injury Friday to try to determine how long he will be sidelined.
