_ August 10,1975 Sunday " ' -- 8^^ Showdown BattleShaping Up Over State Hatchery Water A unique battle between the Department of Natural Resources and the Dorcas Public Service District is brewing over use of water from the spring that supplies the state's Spring Run Trout Hatchery near Petersburg. The DNR has equipment on hand at the hatchen' to tie into the public service district's water line and limit the amount of water being used, and the PSD has threatened legal action to prevent such a move. The DNR is determined, on the other hand, that the equipment will be installed. This is the word that has come down from director Sandy Latimer. Primary reason for the DNR's determination is data it has in hand which shows the public service district is using far more water than the 36,000 gallons every 24 hours called for in the contract. Monthly operation reports to the State Department of Health list daily water usage regularly in the 40,000 to 70,000 gallon range, and on at least one day in June the figure was above 100,000 gallons. REports for April, May and June show By Skip Johnson Despite such usage, the hatchery hasn't run short of water this year, and probably won't in years of normal rainfall. What might happen in a dry year is another matter, however. Hatchery superintendent Homer Mongold said last week that if a recent dry spell had lasted another week to 10 days, the water flow to the hatchery would have dropped an estimated 200 to 300 gallons a minute. The last four years have been years of plentiful rainfall, he said, but this won't continue forever. So the DNR is understandably concerned about the future of the water sup- KEports tor April, may ana June snuw *t its hatchery, which this year raised that daily usage exceeded 36,000 gallons on 128,000 pounds of trout for stocking in state 62 of 91 days streams and lakes. Eagle Helps Donna Young SUNNINGDALE, England (AP) Donna Young holed a 60-yard chip for an eagle two at Sunningdale's llth hole Saturday and went on to win the European Women's Open golf title. The 30-yar-old professional from Los Angeles finished the 72-hole tournament with a total of 283,13-under-par. She won a first prize of $11,000. Sandra Palmer of Dallas was second, two strokes behind at 285. Chako Higuchi of Japan was third on 289. Mrs. Young and Miss Palmer were racing neck and neck for the title when the Los Angeles golfer made the shot of the tournament at the 295-yard llth hole.

Benson returned from a trout fishing trip in the Arctic to find that DNR game biologists had attempted to chase and tranquilize a bear to change its transmitter collar (it was a bear that had been trapped earlier by the DNR). They didn't find the bear, but Benson charged that the DNR has "killed a half dozen bear during the past six to eight years with these guns." He added that he sees "little hope they will gain any new knowledge capturing another one." Benson said he is also disturbed about the killing of three sheep-killing bears this summer because they could not be trapped. "In one case I am personally familiar with," he asserted, "they called in the dogs and killed the bear before the trapper even arrived on the scene." Joe Rieffenberger, DNR game biologist in charge of the bear research project, denied that six bears had been killed with tranquilizer guns by DNR personnel. The only fatality occurred last year, Rieffen- berger said, when a hibernating bear failed to recover from the drug. He pointed out that Benson was invited to join the recent chase to see precautions that were taken. Rieffenberger said he believes it is true that one sheep-killing bear was killed this year before the state trapper got there. The trapping or hunting of sheep-killing bears is not part of the bear research program with which Rieffenberger is associated, however. Personally. I thought the intended use of the tranquiUzer on a collared bear was a worthwhile experiment to test the technique of drugging a treed bear and getting it out of the tree without it being injured. DNR personnel brought along nets to attempt to accomplish the latter goal. But why hasn't this same technique been tried on a sheep-killing bear? Hopefully it will be in the future. There really isn't a lot to lose, since the end result of the chases to date has been three dead bears. * * * Why the Cold Water? The staff of the U. S. Senate's Public Works Committee has thrown cold water on the proposed installation of multi-level water outlets at Sutton Dam. In a memorandum to Sen. Jennings Randolph, D-W. Va., the committee chairman, staff says that "until there is clearer evidence of the benefits to be derived from the structural change, it would seem unwise to undertake such a major investment." Staff's findings were based on "examining the written record" and phone conversations with the Army Corps of Engineers district office in Huntington. I wonder what "written record" the public works staff examined? State geologist Robert Erwin spent a year studying Elk River's problems and one of his recommendations was the structural change, a recommendation that the legislature endorsed. Further, I'm sure the public works staff could find many people within the Corps of Engineers who believe the structural change would be beneficial. Certainly they could find a consensus of state fish biologists who endorse it. So why the cold water? 'Flaky' Bouton Hurls 5-3 Win PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- "1 guess I'm a little crazy, a little flaky," said one-time New York Yankees pitcher Jim Bouton after hurling the Portland Mavericks to a 5-3 Northwest League victory over the Walla Walla Padres Friday night. The 36-year-old Bouton, who pitched for the Yanks in the mid-1960s, returned to organized baseball after four years away from the mound, during which time he has become a sportscaster for a New York television station. And he had his doubts. "When I got out on the mound, I nearly freaked," he said. "You get these nightmares of hitting the first guy, then walking the next and dropping the third's pop-up. Then you give up a gopher ball and you're down 4-0 without working up a sweat." Instead, Bouton used his knuckle- Bouton ball, palmball and floating fastball to strike out six while walking only two. By the seventh inning, the crowd of 9,851 was on its feet. "Hearing the fans gave me a lift," said Bouton. "It's been a long time since anybody has cheered me -- a long time." Despite his present career as a sportscaster Bouton may have been bitten by the playing bug again. "I'll try and finish the season with Portland," he said. "I want to concentrate on baseball-only baseball." Bouton will rejoin the Mavericks at home Aug. 17 against Boise.
