The best way he can do it is by getting the Cincinnati Reds to pay hlrft $100,000 a year <-» eventually. "I'm from Cincinnati," h« said, "it's my home town. 1 Want to show it can afford to pay." For playing left field with the Reds this surtinWr, Pete will earn ?46,000 — exactly $21,000 more than he earned « year ago. Pete was ready to settle for $42,000 last winter when he heard newspaper publisher Francis L. Dale, the new president of • the Reds, make a speech at a country club ir which he afifmed the team's desire to reject an image of pen- Uflousness, carefully cultivated by former owner Bill DeWit. * * * Pete took him at his word and raised the ante. He also had a talking point. The last two years, Pete has been the best second baseman in the National League,. with figures to prove it—over 200 hit* each year, batting average of .812 and 3.13. Suddenly, he's an outfielder. Dav« Bristol, the young manager of the Reds, came to Cincinnati in January with a problem. He had Deron Johnson, a lousy outfielder who could play third base acceptably.. He had Tommy Helms, a fine in- ffleder, who could piay second. He had Pete Rose, a brilliant second baseman, who couid play anyplace. He invited Pete to visit him in his room at the Sheraton Gibson, and for two hours they talked baseball, covering every subject but Pete Rose. Finally, Pete volunteered, "Why don't you. put Deron back on over to second and I'll go out to the outfield. It'll be best for the club." Thai was just what Bristol was thinking. * * * "He didn't know how tfl tell me," grinned Pete. "He was afraid he might hurt my feelings, so I just suggested it to him. I already knew what he was thinking from Earl Lawson." Lawson is a Cincinnati sports writer in whom Bristol had confided his plans, and Earl softened the move for Pete—if he needed any cushioning. 'It made sense to put me in the outfield," said Pete earnestly. "I have a stronger arm than Tommy and run falter. I want 'em to hit the ball to me In the outfield. It's easier to play out there. "Besides, they say all outfitters drive Cadillacs. I'm driving an OldtmAblle right now. This year I'm hitting third in the lineup and I'd like to knock In 100 runs. My big ambition is, some day I want to make $100,600 a yean" That, to Pete, represents more solid achievement than making the All-Star team, being named player of the month, hitting .300, oollecfc Ing more than 240 base hits in a season—all of which tha switch-swinging star has dans. The black-haired Irishman with the thick neck and stout legs is an impish character from a colorful Cincinnati family. His dad, also Pete, was playing semlpro football on tha Cincinnati sanoV lots When he was past 40. Little Pete's sister needed a new pair of shoes badly one winter, so Pete took the money and came home with a new pah- of boidng gloves for little Pete. Mama Ross Hit the roof. * * * When young Pete was a rookie in the rtalning camp of the Reds here In 1963, h« was spotted walking on a causeway across Tampa bay leading to the team's living quarters late one night. The late Fred Hutch- insin was the manager of the Reds and recalled seeing Pete earlier in the evening at a restaurant at least six miles away. After Rose reached the motel near midnight, Hutch saked, "What're ybu doing walking ail the way back here?" "Well," said Pete, "I rjidn't have any money left for a cab, and my pop always told me that major leaguers don't hitchhike. So I walked." * * * ' After he made the ciub, Pete was singned to a Cin- ctnnati contract the day before the season opened, for a $7,000 minimum. If he ever reaches his designated maximum — remember, the ICOGs — he'd probably buy the cab.

Only Louisiana reported a general decline. Waterfowl wintering in Arkansas increased slightly ' from the previous year. .. Poor food conditions and high water during the agriculture season are cited for the decline In SW Louisiana] when waterfowl generally are concentrated. The Mississippi River and tributaries were low, and resulted In reduced habitat. According to the Bureau of Sport Fisheries and fflldilfo inventory, waterfowl were more concentrated in the northern " part of the flyway. The flyway's wintering areas, according to the bureau, appeared In excellent condition. Of all waterfowl, dabbling ducks showed a considerable ncrease in Arkansas.
