S«c. II Thursday, Jun* 5, 1969 Hooki Line & Sinker •y CHESTER ROGERS Meet a champion. He is Chris Kelley, age 4. Chris caught a whopping big 3'/4 pound red fish, and believe me, he is a champion. Sure his daddy, David A. Kelley, helped the little fellow a lot, taught him how to cast, maybe even baited the hook, but when the big one came along, Chris was ready. He put all he had into setting the hook, he held on for dear life, while that big red ran circles around in the bay. He almost gave up, but he tugged, he twisted, he puUed, he did every thing a good fisherman is supposed to do. And he came up with a winner. If you don't believe Chris is a champion, just ask his dad, ask his mother, ask anybody in the family. They will all lei) you Chris is one of the champion fishermen in the world. It must be quite a thrill to be a fishing champion. And if you haven't helped make a champion in your family, you have been neglecting future generations of fishermen. Most fathers will agree with David Kelley that a youngster should be a champion fisherman by the time he is four years old. Of course there are some mothers who insist the lads should be at least 14 before they catch a fish big enough to make them a champion. But other mothers, like Mrs. Kelley, just go with them. Chris has fished a lot. Chris was probably stil! wearing diapers when he caught his first fish out of Sam Raybuni Lake. And it is likely you can bet he is already well hooked on this fishing business. He is likely to be a fisherman for life. There are few more worthwhile pursuits, the great outdoors, lots of sunshine, the thrill of catching that big one, lots of them, and besides that when you eat fish you are supposed to be stocking up on brain food. There are scores of places to fish around Baytown, and even if you had to go to Lake Somerville for white perch, or to Sam Rayburn Lake for bass, think of the encouragement you are giving future champion fishermen like Chris Kelley, a real champion to his family. CHRIS KELLEY Champ Red Fish Catcher Steve Hartrick Signs With Lamar Tech By JOHN BLACK For Ross Sterling High School, the days of Steve Hartrick skimming over hurdles to district championships are gone, but for Lamar Tech in Beaumont, the days are just beginning. Hartrick, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Hartrick of 421 Grantham, and a three-year track letterman at Sterling, signed a letter-of- inlent with Lamar Tech Wednesday. The signing of Hartrick by Lamar Tech track mentor Carl Babcock came after Steve competed in the ever-tough Ty Tyrrell Memorial Relays against nothing but college competition. And not only did he go against the collegians, but he did it in the 440-yard dash, and turned in a respectable 54.1.

After the race Babcock collared Steve and sold him on the Lamar Tech set-up, and it became a reality Wednesday when Hartrick signed the one- year letter-of-intent. It's a one-year deal because Lamar Tech gives 1 its athletic scholarships only on a one-year basis, but Babcock assured the Hartricks that the one-year period was only the beginning. Actually, had it not been for baseball, Hartrick never would have gone over a hurdle or circled a cinder track in Baytown. When Steve was a Lad he played Little League baseball for' Buffs, and moved up to the Dodgers in Junior Teen action when he was 13-years-old. Hartrick was so devoted to baseball that he decided to go out for track his ninth grade year at Baytown Junior School. Baytown track coach Gene Bosse certainly wasn't going to argue with him, and it wasn't long until Bosse had a track letterman on his hands; Steve moved on to Sterling for his schooling and the Yankees of Senior Teen League play for his baseball, but track and the hurdles became a part of him, so he went out for track at Sterling. By his junior year Hartrick was talcing every hurdle in stride. He was, in fact, the only individual track performer from either of the Baytown high schools to qualify for the regional meet. This past year Hartrick was voted captain of the track team, and won district titles in both the 120-yard high hurdles and 330- yard intermediates. His best time so far in the highs is 14.4, and he's turned the intermediates in 38.5. That 38.5 was against Joe Wylie of Henderson, and though he didn't beat remember that Wylie was the fastest high school hurdler in the nation last year. As a student at Sterling the 18- year-old Hartrick has been honored with the Sons' of the American Revolution Award, based on character, leadership and citizenship. He also received the Balfour Award, which is given each year o the outstanding male senior at terling. So now Hartrick says he'll "try o keep in shape this summer," nd then it's off to Lamar Tech in fall, where both parties hould profit from the venture.

The Twins' second baseman swiped home for the fifth time in five attempts this season in Minnesota's 4-2 victory over the New York Yankees Wednesday night and closed in on a couple of records. He also rapped out three hits and riased his major league-leading average to .399. Elsewhere, Baltimore trounced Oakland 6-1, Detroit nipped California 5-4 in 10 innings, Cleveland pounded Seattle 10-4 and Washington beat Kansas City 3-1. In the only afternoon action, the Chicago Vhitc Sox hammered Boston 7- Carew doubled in the sixth and eventually scored the winning run on Graig Nettles' sacri- 'ice fly and stole home with an insurance run in the eighth on the front end of a triple steal against Lindy McDaniel. "Martin tells me to watch the pitcher when I get on third," said Carew, who has stolen only 10 bases all-told. "Watch his wirulup, his timing. The slide is important, too. But I can't tell you all my secrets because I might get caught." Martin said all five of Carew's big thefts "have been straight steals home. Stealing home is not a forgotten art but an art that hasn't been used enough." He said the threat of stealing home "creates balks, wild pitch- The Free Boy & Girl Wan t Ads A re Here!

Quarry Will Battle Frazier By FRANK ECK AP Newsfeatures Sports Editor Harry Markson must have had a hunch that unknown Dave Zyglewicz wouldn't last long in his bout against Joe Frazier last April 22 in Houston. Less than 24 hours after Frazier knocked out Zyglewicz—in 96 seconds of the first round— the aroma of the mismatch was forgotten as Markson announced that Frazier would defend his portion of the world's heavyweight championship against Jerry Quarry in Madison Square Garden on Monday, June 23. "We would have been left with a lot of egg on our faces if there had been an upset," Markson said the other day. Markson is president of the Garden Boxing Club and likes to plan his bouts ahead. Markson had tried to match Frazier, recognized as champion in six states, including New York, with Jimmy Ellis who won the World Boxing Association tournament a year ago by beating Quarry. "Ellis didn't think he'd be comfortable in New York where Frazier is recognized as the champion," said Markson. "He turned down the fight. But I wonder how comfortable he felt two years ago last March when he knocked out Johnny Persol in one round in the Garden. "1 think Ellis has changed his mind about fighting Frazier, but now Frazier has to beat Quarry. "Quarry was an impressive kind of a fighter when he beat Buster Mathis in the Garden in March. He continually threw punches and stayed on top of Mathis. "Sometimes he tries to outbox an opponent and maybe he's a better fighter than a boxer. When he gets hurt he seems to fight harder. He has good recuperative powers. "As to Frazier he has a tremendous will to win." Frazier is unbeaten in 23 bouts, 20 of which have been knockouts. Quarry has a 31-2-4 record, having lost only to Ellis in 1968 and to Eddie Machen in s Angeles in 1966. One of his four draw decisions was against Floyd Patterson in 1967. Frazier, 25, will be a slight favorite because of his knockout prowess. Quarry is unimpressed by records and says: "We're going to meet in the middle of the ring until somebody goes. 1 think my defense is better and I know my chin is better than his." Quarry, 24, from Bellflower, Calif., will receive 25 per cent of the gale and ancillary income.
