Brarhr ffew« - Barurity. Bass fishing is 8 bit slow for most of us ole cane and fly. fishermen but some fishermen enjoy it enouqh to stick with it for hours at a time. Ben Reed says he enjoys a cbuple of hours of bass fishing then he's ready to go to his fly r6d for bream fishing which is a little more active. • James Parrish, his sometimes fishing partner, is just the opposite. He can bass fish all day and never lose patience. James and Ben are both excellent with the spinning rod and just to watch them •cast makes it looks easy. Norwood Courtney is another avid and excellent bass fisherman and spends many of his leisure hours trying to catch the big ones. He brought in several nice bass and bream from Corona this week. James and Ben had several nice bass this past weekend at Corona plus a box of bream caught with the fly rod. They took along Ben's son, Phillip and two young men visiting from Memphis, Jim Garrett and Jim Hawkins. They didn't do bad for young fellows but they were a little awed by the number of fish being caught by the more experienced fishermen on the lake like Jim, Ben and others. Success will come with exper- ence. * * * The Mississippi was down to about 10 feet this week, an ideal level for willow fishing at Brandywine but an expected rise may spoil this for a day or two. Several fishermen reported good catches from there this week: N.C. Patterson and partner of Huffman, Mr. and Mrs. Earl Walker, R.C. Tennyson of Steele, James Williams and Harold Fisher. * * * Luther Thompson and W.C. Burnside drove to Tulot, near Harrisburg, to check on the lake and found it low enough but muddy. They drove to Dana Lake so as not to lose a day of fishing and boxed a limit of crappie each. Harry's Boat Dock reported crappie were being caught trolling at about a 6-foot depth. Gene Trotter of Blytheville said he ate some fish he caught himself for the first time in nearly three years. He caught a good many in North Lake at Brandywine two weeks ago. Most of us can't wait from one weekend to the next to go fishing and he waited three years. f ^ , -> v < ^K^XWNHfc m«BHW ' PREP STANDOUT Richie Szaro of St. Francis in New yorkCity chose Harvard after being sought by_ every major football school to the country.

Buckpasser Takes To Grass at 'Duct NEW YORK (AP) - Buck- passer, at 4-years-of age the youngest equine millionaire, tries today for his 16th straight victory—a feat that has not been accomplished since Citation completed such a string 17 years ago. But much-more than a 16th successive victory and first money of $36,010 hinges on the outcome of Buckpasser's performance in the 1%-mile Bowling Green Handicap at Aqueduct. . Buckpasser's chief reason for being in the Bowling Green is that it is run on the grass. Although he has raced 27 times for a record of 24 victories, two seconds and earnings of $1,342,204, the Ogden Phipps' colt never has raced on the, turf. Making Buckpasser's task today even more difficult is the presence of Assagai, the 1966 grass, course champion, in th field of five. Under 135 pounds •he most he ever has carriet and one more than he'll pack in the Prix de St. Cloud, the son o Tom Fool-Busanda will giv eight pounds to Assagai from C W.

Like cream, the three super- ars of the game moved 16 the ip in the m&st .prestigious Of all he world's golf tournaments, he United States Open Champi- nship, and are poised for the final two climactic rounds today and Sunday. Palmer, his jaw jutling in determination and his game in harness, looked like the charger of old when he swept over the steaming Baltusrol Golf Club course irt a two-undcr-par 63 Friday for. 137 and a one-stroke lead over Nicklaus. Big Jack, the sweat streaming from his pink face, pounded out a 67 on the sweltering, 7,015 yard layout for 13*. H« was on* stroke up on Casper, th6 first of the trio in the clubhouse, and appeared unconcerned about the heat, Palmer, Casper or anything else. The cautious Casper, who beat Palmer in a playoff for the title last year after Artie's n6w- famous collapse, tbok a careful, par 70 for 139 and declined to make a comment.

It will be Buck- paster's first race on grass. Deane Befnan, who had » 71, and Marty Fleckman, .the 23- year-old amateur from Port Arthur, Tex., who led the first round with 87, then went to 73. Don January was alone at 69-72 -141. Today's pairings have Nicklaus and Palmer as the last two- sbme away. Casper plays against Devlin and Beman against Fleckman.

In all, rt of tlta ordinal field of ISO survived the cut to the low 60s and ties. It took a 148 to make It. Arribng the major casualties are former Open champions Gene Littler, 151, Tommy Bolt, 149, and Jack Fleck, 149. The contrasting styles of the big three of Palmer, Nicklaus and Casper was more than evident. Palmer, the golfing millionaire from Latrobe, Pa., was again the charger, challenging the course, gambling, putting body English On every shot and jerking cheers and groans fr6m his vast army. Nicklaus plodded sedately over the course, looking neither lift nor right, except to note distance* in his little black book, th« book that goes with he swing that makes him perhaps the most feared golfer in the wdrld today. Casper was bland as ever, and as colorless as the oatmeal" he. can't eat. He picked up'a'- birdie on the second hole, stu'm^ bled to two bogeys on the back' nine, then got even again on 17. "I liked my round," Palmer" said. "I hit every green but one and I missed a few fairways. Ij had several chances for birdies'" that failed to fall. But, in all,' jt' liked .It."

The 46th annual meet ends tonight with finals in 14 events. The unhappy winner was Charlie Greene of Nebraska, who proved his class by winning his third straight NCAA 100- yard dash championship. He did t by beating back a challenge rom Southern California sophomore Lennox Miller, who matched him until the final 30 yards. Greene was clocked in 9.2 seconds. But he questioned the time. He said he felt he ran faster than he did Thursday night, when he tied the world •ecOrd of 9.1 in a qualifying heat. "I'd just like to see who got what time," Greene snapped. "It's the little things that have thrown me all my career—just the hairline stuff. But I don't worry about it any more." The remorseful loser was Bob Richards, defending steeplechase champion from host Brigham Young University. Richards, to the cheers Of the 8,304 partisan fans, took a big early lead in the race. Then he hit a hurdle about the midway point and fell to the track. His knees bleeding, Richards scrambled back to his feet and continued to run. By that time, Chris McCubbins of Oklahoma State had taken the lead. McCubbins won by a wide margin in 8:51.4. Richards finished ninth in 9:33.6 and stumbled into the arms of friends. "I tried to finish, really I tried," Richards gasped. "I tried my best, but I couldn't feel my knees. I tried, though, 1 really did." Earl McChlloch of Southern California literally leaped to a quick, wide lead in the high hurdles and held off the fast-closing Richmond Flowers of Tennessee for victory in 13.4. That tied the meet mark, established by Flowers in a qualifying heat earlier in the evening. Other winners Friday night were world champion Randy Matson in the shot put, with a meet-record heave of 67 feet, 9V4 inches. Gary Ard of Kansas, 25-9 in the long jump; and B6b Narcessian of Rhode Island, 197& in the hammer throw. Southern California was the leading tearr 1 with 24 pbinls after seven finals. With its world record-breaking 440 relay team and 17-7 pole vaoulter Bob Seagren still to compete, Southern Cal appeared to be on the verge of making the team race a walkway. Brigham Young was second- with 14 points and Oregon wasL third with 12. Defending cham-- pion UCLA had only 8. / .
