JZfttfi- By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) Cubs' Bonham Struggles, Wins Records Set Five school records in track were set this spring by Kuemper, according to coach Chuck Van Hecke. Rick Friedman, who will only be a junior in the fall, moved the high jump mark to 6-2, while senior-to-be Tom Nurse tied Mike Kelly's pole vault mark of 12 feet, six inches. Mark Windschitl set the other individual record by running 9:59.4 over two miles. Two relay records were set. The two mile unit of John Heithoff. Russ Rupiper, Craig Dentlinger and Bob Friedman ran 8:00.7 and the medley team of Bill Neumayer, Mark Hermsen. Dentlinger and Rupiper ran 3:39.4. Track Awards Kuemper's track men of the year were Rupiper, a junior, in the running events and Rick Friedman in the field events. The most improved track man award went to Mark Hermsen. while Dentlinger earned the hardest working award. Windschitl received the award for the most inspiration and Neumayer finished as the team's point leader with 119'^. Turkey Success Even though only 104 gobblers were harvested. Iowa's first spring turkey season was considered a success by Bob Barratt of the Iowa Conservation Commission. Early estimates predicted that as few as 35 to 50 Tom turkeys would be harvested but populations of the turkeys proved to be higher. Iowa hunters enjoyed a 22 per cent success ration, while the normal ratio for the country is eight to 10 per cent. A breakdown of the three open hunting areas showed that 49 gobblers were harvested from the Stephens Forest in the central-southern zone; 45 from the southeast Iowa Shimek Forest area and only 10 in the northeast Iowa Yellow River Forest area. Canada-Fishing The Lake of the Woods area of Canada got off to a slow start this year as far as walleyes were concerned. Ice went out in that area the second week of May and walleyes were still spawning when the season opened May 18. However, the poor walleye fishing was offset by the fine smallmouth bass and lake trout angling. Some lakes that might be worthwhile checking on an early trip are Stephens Lake and Isenglass Lake in the Sioux Narrows area and Crow Lake in the Nester Falls area. Iowa Fishing Although rain has slowed the fishing in many areas, the Iowa Conservation Commission says anglers are taking good catches of bluegills, crappies, bullheads and bass. Bullhead fishing is very good in northwestern Iowa, while bluegills and crappies continue to hit in the southern areas, the commission reports. Also, in northwest Iowa, there is very good angling for bullheads at Spirit Lake. Other fish being taken there include perch and smallmouth bass along the shoreline. At Spirit Lake, the best fishing for walleyes is after dark and there is fair northern pike angling, the commission states. Anglers are catching smallmouth bass, northern pike and bluegills in the canal area of West Okoboji and there is fair angling for walleyes after dark. East Okoboji is very good for bullheads and fair for walleyes. Black Hawk Lake at Lake View reports good yellow bass fishing, while Storm Lake in Buena Vista County reports good on bullheads and fair angling for walleye, northern pike and crappies. Arrowhead and Hallet pits in Sac County are good for bluegills, while North Twin Lake in Calhoun Country has good crappie fishing. Even though the Raccoon River is high in Sac and Carroll counties, fishermen are having good success catching channel catfish. CHICAGO (AP) — Sometimes it can be murder being a starter, but Bill Bonham has no plans to ask for a reprieve and a parole back to Chicago's bullpen. Bonham, getting a chance as a starter for the Cubs in his second full major league season, calmed down after a shaky start Thursday and. despite being pecked apart by 11 San Francisco hits, committing a balk and unleashing a wild pitch, came away with a 5-3 victory over the Giants. He got it because he also recorded seven strikeouts, several when he needed them most, and because Jerry Morales gave him the hit he needed most, a tie-breaking two-run double in the eighth inning. In Thursday's only other National League game. Houston beat Montreal 4-3 in 10 innings. The American League had the day off. For Bonham. a big right- hander with a 4-8 record and a 4.40 earned-run average, it was his third complete game of the year. In 57 1-3 innings this season he's been tagged for 59 hits—but he's also come up with 53 strikeouts. Bonham was touched for two runs in San Francisco's four-hit first in which he also committed the balk and issued one of his three walks. In seven of the next eight innings, the Giants' leadoff batter reached first base against him. "My fast ball was hopping in ".' " .. _ „ , boon making solid contact and the beginning, but I was pitch- l tm " £31 1971' 5 il ' s only a c l llestiotl of time ing out of jams until midway .".°L"°L...:. before his average will go UD. in the game when I went to my changeup and I was getting it over." Bonham said. Despite Bonham's struggle against the Giants. Chicago Manager Whitcy Lockman said he "wasn't close to yanking him, except for the ninth inning after Tito Fuentes opened with a single." Garry Maddox then flied out. so Lockman said he decided to let Bonham pitch through the next batter before considering a change. The next batter. Kd Goodson. grounded into a game-ending double play. Contrary to Bonham. San Francisco's Elias Sosa enjoys coming out of the bullpen—or did until Thursday. The Giants' ace reliever retired the first two Chicago batters in the eighth. But Jose Cardenal singled up the middle and Rick Monday walked, setting the stage for Morales' winning hit, a double off the left field wall. The Cubs handed Sosa his first setback of the season against five victories. "Morales has been hitting in tough luck." Lockman said of his left fielder currently batting a shade over .240. "But his performance at the plate has been excellent. He has Maddox' single and Gary Thomasson's double produced San Francisco's first-inning run, with the single by Maddox extending his hitting streak to 14 games. Billy Williams doubled and later came home on a double steal for a first-inning Chicago run. The Cubs tied it in the fourth when Williams opened with another double, took third on a bunt and scored on Rick Monday's infield out. The Giants moved ahead 3-2 in the sixth on Dave Rader's leadoff single, a sacrifice and Fuentes' single. But the Cubs came back again in the bottom of the sixth on Don Kessinger's walk. Cardenal's single and Monday's sacrifice fly. Astros 4, Expos 3 Tommy Helms, who doubled but had been cut down at the plate trying to score in the eighth inning, lashed a tie- breaking single in the 10th to give Houston its fourth straight victory and its third in a row over the Expos. Milt May led off the 10th with a single and made it to second when first baseman Hal Breeden fielded Bob Gallagher's bunt and threw too late trying for the force. One out later. Helms singled to center. The Astros pushed across a pair of first-inning runs and another in the seventh. Impatient Golfer Fires 65 for Top Sports Glances LL Results The question is whether anybody will beat the Cardinals in Major League play this season? The Cardinals made it six straight Thursday night as they walloped the winless Cubs. 24-0. in four innings as Bob Lambertz tossed a one-hitter. Lambertz, Lon Brincks, Dave Gute and Steve O'Connor socked homers for the Cardinals, now unbeaten in two years. The second-place Yanks and Braves both won as the Yanks whipped the Orioles, 10-1, and the Braves shutout the Athletics, 10-0, in five innings. Cork Masching was the winning pitcher in the Yanks' victory and John Staley was the big hitter with a three-run triple. Ken Knight gave up just one hit in the Braves' lopsided win and Tom Heinrichs tripled and Bill Loew and Tom Hannasch blasted doubles also for the winning team. In one other game, the Mets clipped the Dodgers, 7-6, as Brian Neppel collected three hits — two singles and a triple — for the Mets. In Senior League play, Ken Nurse tossed a two-hitter and struck out 13 as the Knights of Columbus whipped the winless Elks, 9-3, to move into a tie for first-place with Uptown at 2-0. And Kiwanis gained their initial victory, 7-5 over Grouse, as Tom Reiman spun a two-hitter and Steve Dirkx hit a double.

DRAPERIES Eat) of Carroll CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Tom Watson is an impatient young man. "I've been in position to win three, maybe four times this year," he said. "I haven't won yet. I'm getting impatient. I want to win." Watson, an articulate 24-year-old in his third season on the pro golf tour, made the observation Thursday after his course-record matching 65, seven under par. It gave him the first-round lead in the $250.000 Kemper Open. Australian veteran Bruce Crampton was one shot back at 66 in this "designated tournament." one of three events on the schedule this season in which all of the game's leading players are required to compete.

"But I'm sure it will come." Watson didn't miss a green, didn't make a bogey and. strangely enough, didn't make a birdie on any of the par five holes as he left the game's great players well behind Bert Yancey and Bob Menne each birdied the last three holes for 67s and a share of third.
