Friday Evening, May 11, 1362. Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribune Nine O'Dell Picks Up Fifth Victory HEAD DOWN—Gary Player, playing in the first round of the 840,000 Colonial National Invitational Golf Tournament in Ft. Worth, Texas, comes out of a sand trap on the first hole. Player finished the nigged opening round with'a two under par 68—one stroke back of leader Arnold Palmer. (UPI) THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE We've just received an interesting report on recreational boating in the country and a quick review of the highlights is of more than usual interest, especially since the annual rush to the water is just beginning. The report covers accidents, numbering and related activities last year as compiled by the U.S. Coast Guard, and in Indiana the totals are somewhat grim. Some 22 Hoosiers died last year in boat accidents and dama^ was estimated at $43,900. Some 61,000 boats plied the state's waterways last year and the number is mushrooming. The type of accidents fatal to most was capsizing, although collisions accounted for the most non-Jalal accidents. And if you're out to blame some hot-rod teenager for all the trouble, forget it— the age of the operators involved in the most accidents averaged between 33 and 36. The most popular boat for having accidents in seem to be open molorboats uijdcr 16 feet in length, a description that fits many a rig. Understandably, the Coas't Guard found that most accidents occur in the peak summer months, especially around July 1, and seem to be most appealing between 2 and 4 p.m. In one study, the report found that those who perished in the water, 87 per cent wore no lifesaving device. TRUE STORY ' DEPT.— Dick McFaddcn of Buffalo has been pretty happy with his fashing lately. Not long ago lie landed a six-pound, seven-ounce black bass, measuring 22 Hi inches in length and 19 in girlh. The beauty was landed from the bank on tho Tippecanoe using a plug. And then there's James Caputo, rural route 5, who brought in two bushels of mushrooms he found Tuesday. afternoon. Yes, bushels. One more. Dick Spencer; of 122 West Linden Ave., dropped by Thursday with an 8 and one-half inch sponge mushroom, found "west of Logansport". Some help. Two new habitat restoration biologists have been appointed for Logan-land counties. They are Edward L. Richardson, 900 South Tenth St., Lafayette, who will serve Pulasld and White counties; and David L. Herbst, 1319 Monroe St., Rochester, who will work in Cass, Carroll, Fulton and Miami counties. Landowners wanting to improve wildlife conditions on their land should contact these men. IT'S THE LAW-No person shall sponsor, conduct or hold any mfllorboat race upon the public waters of this state unless a permit for such motorboat race has been applied for and duly issued by the department or shall violate or fail to comply with any conditions upon which any such permit has been issued as provided therein. We don't have much in boat races in this part of the country, but for those of you interested in that sort of thing there's a special treat coming up Saturday. It's the Central States Schoolboy Regatta at Culver Military Academy which has drawn entries of seven midwestern high schools. Beginning at 1 p.m. there will be competition in single sculls, double sculls, four-oared . shells and eight-oared shells over a mile- long course on Lake Maxinkuckee. The public is invited. WEEKLY FISHING REPORT— Fishing continues to be very good throughout .the stale. Locally, catfish angling is good in both the Wabash :and Eel. The suckers are still running but bass fishing has been slowed up some due lo the high water. Several catches of silver bass have been taken at Freeman and Shafcr Lakes and the Tippecanoe River has come up with a few northern pike shagged.

CUPO- Amold Palmer, driving to perfection and putting nearly as well, nursed a one stroke lead into the second round of the Colonial Na- iional Invitation golf tournament today, hoping late doesn't play an encore in his -behalf. Palmer, who has never finished better than sixth in this affair, led the opening round once before — in 1958 with a sizzling five-under-.par record tying 65, only to fade to' a 77 the following day and neve r get on speaking terms with par again to finish in a tie for 12th. This time, he posted his sub- par 67 ea-rly Thursday afternoon and let the field shoot at it— in vain. Three Come Close Three players — Gary Player, Doug Ford, and 'Bo Wininger came' within a stroke of him with 88s, and five others nipped par by a stroke at 69 — Johnny Pott, Tommy Jacobs, Jacky Cupit, Jack Nicklaus and Bill Collins. Palmer had his game in a deep groove through 11 holes when he was five under par, but, then his irons started misbehaving. - A bad eight iron shot cost him New York to 1 On Banning o By JACK CUI>DY UPI Sports Writer NEW YORK (UPI) - AL least four and perhaps five public hearings will be held this year by New York's Joint Legislative Boxing Committee as it probes intensely the question of whether prize fighting, live .and televised, should be banned from the state. That was learned authoritatively today, 'a' few hours after Assemblyman Hayward H. Plumadore— chairman of the new hard- hitting committee— had announced that the first public hearing would be held in New York on May 21. He gave out the hearing date after a three-hour committee meeting in a mid town hotel. Plumadore, a Republican from Saranac Lake, N.Y., indicated in his announcement that there would be only two hearings, ai New York and Buffalo, with possibly a third at Syracuse. ' However, one of the other six committee men disclosed today: "Our chairman is using the vel vet glove now. But this is going to ibe the most intense, mature and -fair study of the whole gamu of professional boxing ever made by any slate 1 ." The committee man said defi nitely: "There will be at leas four or five public hearings be fore we make our report to the speaker and majority leader on Dec. 31." HARVEY WINNER MONTREAL (UPI) - Doug -Harvey, brilliant player-coach o. the New York Rangers, today was named winner of the James -Norris Memorial Trophy, as the outstanding all - around defense- man in the National Hockey (League for the seventh, time in the nine years the trophy has been awarded. that athletes are shooting at this School Stadium: Record 1929 9S2 58 . 934 ,. ., ,- -220 ;j .,'.-... .. -507 [939 ,..., 1'587 1942 '. 4'30.8 51 : i4.fj 52 , :20.4 [y 1942 13-2% r) 1961 53-8% 1958 22-4% 1981 . g.i ,'....... 6-1 ait, Johnson, J.

Otherwise, he said, "I drove perfect ail day. . .-was in the fairway on all but the 15th when the ball bounced from the middle of the -fairway into the rough. . .and putted very well," Palmer Putts Well His putting was good enough for six birdies and he had three other putts bounce out of the cup for possible birdies. If Palmer can nurse his lead through the remaining 54 holes, he'll add $7,000 to his $52,308.33 bankroll for the season, chalk up his sixth triumph of the year and add another tournament to his list of conquests over courses that have defied him. Thursday's first round play was marred by the disqualification of two players— Mike Souchak, who shot a 72, and Ken Venturi, who had an 80. They both signed incorrect score cards. Soucliak had taken an illegal drop from a road on the 17th and Venturi inadvertently signed his card showing a five on the 17th when he had a six. ' •iold Hearings • Fight Game He added that the state police and their Bureau of CriminaJ In- elligence would aid the commit- ee in its current investigation and that the committee also would have the benefit of inves- igations made not long ago by he Kefauver Senate committee and by the New York district at- :orncy's office. Although a thorough investigation will be made of the recent death of Benny (Kid) Paret from ring injuries, the committee man stressed that this phase of the study as well as all others will be aimed from the "moral standpoint," rather than from the an- 5le of danger to participants. HOOSIERS INVADE TOUGH MICHIGAN By United Press International Michigan hoped to tighten its grip on the -feg Ten baseball lead today in a home game with Indiana, while the other conference .squads battled through a ful schedule.

Pittsburgh Pirates outfielders, set a major league record by accepting 20 chances in the second jame of a doubleheader_ against ;he Cincinnati Reds on 'July 5, 1948. Giants Regain Four Game Lead By FRED IX)WN UPI Sports Writer Billy O'Dell is one pitcher in a million — not because he has a 5-0 record for the San Francisco Giants — but because he's one fellow about whom Paul Richards guessed wrong. Richards is one of those guys who's never supposed to be wrong when it comes to judging pitchers. He's got a fantastic string of successes with lame-armed and lame-b rained pitchers who couldn't win for anybody but him. And just the opposite is supposed to be true: When Richards gives up on 'em, well, there just ain't any hope left. Richards felt that way about O'DeH's performance in his first .wo years with the Giants generally supported Richards' judgment (8-13 in 1960 and' 7-5 in .961) but this year it's different.
