"Teach •them to love the outdoors," they say. "Introduce the boys to nature, show them the joys lo be had in the perfect contemplative sport. It is part of the duty of fatherhood to take your sons on fishing trips." I And on and on and on, until the point, and the listener's ear are well belabored. But never a iword about taking daughters fish ing, which could possibly be far ofiore significant than taking along ;tlie sons. 1 "Don't be rediculous," they say. '"Fishing is for men, not women, •and has always been throughout ihistory. Don't waste your time Reaching a daughter to fish as •she won't get the chance to use Hie skill anyway." And they usually conclude that "women aren't strong enough to do the hard ;work that sometimes enters the fishing picture". There is a Haw in this jewel of reasoning, however. Women '1)0 use the skill ol fishing, as witness the nearly seven million of them that fish and fish well, freed from any hint of drudgery by modern technology. They use spin-cast reels ,anc crank in fish as easily as any man. They launch light boats thai weigh 100 pounds or less, attach lightweight fishing motors, fish with limber rods and light lines •and see absolutely no reason why they should not enjoy the spnr as much as any man does. There is another rather import ant facet to the diamond. Little girls grow into big girls, fortuu lately, and sooner or later begii to angle for husbands. And win among us can deny that a fishir wife isn't a good catch for an man to net, with a future all line up for the two of them. Here's a simple method for an ticipating your fuel needs whil cruising in the family yacht: Th maximum rated horsepower o your engine, diveded by eigh equals the fuel (in gallons) con sumed per hour. Example: 1 horsepower, divided by eigh equals two and one-fourth gallon per hour consumption. John Belts, of rural route 2 Monticello, thought he was doin pretty well.

PETERSEN UPI Sports Editor OAKMONT, Pa. (UPI) - They set out in pursuit of little Gene Littler in the second round of the U.S. Open golf championship today and everybody agreed that the mechanical man would take a lot of catching. The silent, sandy-haired Call- fornian, known to his fellow pros as "Gene the Machine," had only played 27 "sloppy" practice holes over awesome Oakmont Country Cl'ub. But he went out there and shot a two under par 35-34—69 which put him on the head end by one shot. At his heels — one blow back- came Bobby Nichols, a 26-year- old Kentuckian playing out of Midland, Tex., and bespectacled Bob Rosburg, the PGA champion from Portland, Ore. And two strokes away was a rging sixsome. headed by Arid Palmer, the 5-1 pre-lourna- ent favorite. Palmer's finger, shed Sunday night, wasn't thering him "at all" but his utting was as he carded a 36—71.

' Belinsky Has Insult Added To $250 Injury By MILTON RICHMAN UPI Sports' Writer Some days it just doesn't pay o get out of bed and that, in nutshell, was the kind of day turned out to be for poor Bo Belinsky, Billy Pierce and Stan Williams. All three went through separate ordeals Thursday and their collective misfortune would even bring tears to a hobby horse. Belinsky, Ihe good-time-Charlie of the Los Angeles Angels, had insult added to injury when he was knocked out in the sixth inning toy the Minnesota Twins after being fined $250 for some after-hours hi-jinks. Before departing, Bo walked eight and trailed 3-2. The Angels tied the score in the seventh, taking him .off the hook, but Lenny Green's ninth inning single off loser Art Fowler gave the Twins a 5-4 victory and boosted them within three percentage points of the idle first-place New York Yankees. Reds Blank Giants Pierce suffered his second defeat as the Cincinnati Reds Wanked the San Francisco Gi ants, 8-0, on Joey Jay's three-hit ter, but that wasn't the wors! part of it. Trying to cover first base in thei ; irst inning, Pierce, who has been .he Giants' most consistent pitcher with eight victories, suffered spike injury by Don Blasingame that required 12 stitches and will keep him out of action r or at least 10 days. Don Larsen relieved Pierce and yielded a single lo Frank Robinson that produced the Reds' first run, after which Robinson connected for a three-run homer n the third. The defeat kept the second- place Giants two games behind the league-leading Dodgers, which brings up the sad plight of Williams. The big right-hander started fdr the Dodgers, could get only one batter out and was charged with five runs in the first inning as the Milwaukee Braves coasted to a 7-1 victory. Hank Aaron's 12th homer with one on was the crusher for Williams. Bob Shaw then went on to hold the Dodgers to six hits for his eighth victory in 10 decisions. Colts Best Mets The Houston Colts beat the New York 'Mets, 10-2, and the Pitls burgh Pirates downed t ii e Chi cago Cubs, 6-3, in the only otliei National League games. Washington clipped Cleveland, 1-3, Kansas City outseored Chicago, 11-8, and Baltimore dofeat- ed Boston, 7-4, in the American -/eague. BR Wins to Sox, Indians Two fine pitching performances netted victories iii Babe Ruth league baseball action at Riverside park diamond Thursday night as the Pepsi-Cola Bed Sox Ijested the Eagle Braves 5-1 and the Alpha Indians blanked the FOP Giants 10-0. Mike Cox hurled the win for the Red Sox giving up only three hils and fanning seven. He was helped by Dave Rose who had three hils and Jim Jcuson with two. Lee Gaumer got a double for the losers. Rick Rohrlaugh fogged the ball past the Giants in the second game, allowing only one hit, a single by Ruth Schubach, and fanned ten batters as the Indians won easily. The Redskins sewed up the game with a 7-run outburst in the fourth inning when Steve Maple clou';ed a bases-loaded triple to left-center.
