Miami Optimistic in CWS OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - An Eastern team hasn't won the College World Series in 19 years, but Miami Coach Ron Fraser thinks the drought should end. "Wake Forest did it in 1955— and- that's a long time ago," noted Fraser. "I think the brand of baseball we play in our part of the country is as good as any." Fraser's team, along with Texas and Oklahoma, carries the top challenger rating as seven teams will be out to end Southern California's dominance of the classic. The 28th collegiate finals open Friday night with Miami, 48-9, matched against Harvard, 31-9, and Oklahoma, 42-6, going against surprising Northern Colorado, 31-11. But looming over the double-elimination tournament is the question: Can Southern California be denied a fifth straight title? Rod Dedeaux has guided Trojan teams to a series record eight titles—and five in the last six years, but many feel this is not one of his better clubs. Dedeaux doesn't agree. "We feel that we will be able to hold our own in this field," he said. "It's s strong one, but our club has come back from adversity all year." Twice during the District 8 playoffs, Southern California was within a loss of failing to qualify for the series, but bounced back. "This team has come back more than any team I've had," continued Dedeaux. "So we again believe that we can win." Southern California brings a 45-19 mark to the series—the school's worst in 22 years, but the Trojans always seem to be tougher in the series. "Don't let that record fool you," said Fraser, whose team was ranked No. 1 along with Texas in the final poll by Collegiate Baseball Times Herald, Carroll, la. £ Friday, June 7, 1974 D newspaper. "They are definitely a tournament team, they have proved that," said Fraser. "We know they will be tough." Southern Cal's first test is a big one—against Texas, 52-6, Saturday night. Seton Hall, 338. battles Southern Illinois, 4710, in the final first-round game Saturday. All of the entrants with the exception of Miami have been to the series before, and the Golden Hurricane's lack of series experience bothers Fraser. "We did well in our own tournaments back home." noted Fraser. "But this is a different story. We'll have to prove we can stand up under the pressure here."

Arizona finished 58-6. "Anything can happen in a short series," said'Northern Colorado Coach Tom Petroff. "I think we proved that against Arizona, so we are hopeful coming to Omaha." The Bears' bid rests mainly with a pair of freshman pitchers, Keith Bailey (10-1) and Rick Thoren (7-1), who hurled the victories over Arizona. Southern Illinois has twice finished second to Southern Cal—in 1968 and 1971—and will rely on depth and its running game. The Salukis set a school record for victories this season, and were a come-from-behind victor over Big Ten Conference champion Minnesota to gain the series. Independent Miami rolled Wind Hits Cards, 9-5 Hats Off Hats off to the Orioles of the Major League as they ended the Cardinals' 25-game winning streak over a three year span Wednesday. But give the Cardinals and their coaches a lot of credit. Dale Hanson and Harry Rotert have done a tremendous job with the Cardinals in the Carroll Little League program and knowing them personally, they will continue their top-notch effort. No records have been kept, but the Cardinals win streak will probably go into the record books as the longest around these parts. As the old saying goes, "all good things must come to an end sometime."

By The Associated Press Weather-Fishing How the weather affects fishing has long been a topic of conversation for fishermen and there are many controversial aspects to the subject, says Bill Horine, outdoor writer'for the Associated Press. Fish have specific feeding periods that are generally connected to the gravitational pull of the sun and moon. But there are a number of things that affect feeding habits of fish. Sometime fishermen notice a slight rise in the water level on rivers and fishing is excellent. It is believed high water washes in more feed than usually floats down the river. Fish apparently are aware of this and go on a rampage of feeding. Although some anglers believe walleyes feed only at night because strong light tends to hurt their eyes, there are those who have had their best walleye fishing in the daytime and in rainy or stormy weather when fish weren't supposed to bite. Horine states. When fishing is slow anglers have to take avdantage of every known factor to be successful. When fishing on a lake shore, anglers should be on the side with the wind blowing toward them. Baits should be used that are natural for that time of year. A light chop on the water usually will give bait better action and look more attractive and natural to fish. Some good places to fish are the mouths of small streams or any location where food is apt to be washed into a lake. The best fishing during the summer is in the early morning or late evening hours. Fish tend to come out of J-he deep water to feed then. The San Francisco Giants won in a breeze Thursday. Literally. Aided by the well-known Candlestick Park wind, the Giants scored seven runs in the fourth inning and went on to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 9-5. "Candlestick is by far the toughest park to play outfield in the National League." said St. Louis center fielder Lis Melendez. He lost a fly ball in the wind during that wild fourth inning and it cost the Cardinals three runs. Frustrated over Gary Matthews' wind-blown double with the bases loaded, Melendez noted: "All you can go by is the sound of the ball hitting the bat. It sounded hard hit, so I started back. But the wind held it up and I ran as hard as I could but couldn't get to it." up a 26-game winning streak during mid-season and sports a .307 batting average led by first baseman Orlando Gaonzales, a .409 hitter who also has 57 stolen bases. Texas is making a record 17th series appearance, but the Longhorns haven't taken home a title since 1950 as Western and Big Ten Conference teams have dominated the series the last 15 years. Texas brings a veteran club to its third straight series, led by pitchers Jim Gideon (18-1), Rick Burley (12-0) and Richard Wortham (10-3). "The tournament appears to have an outstanding field," said Longhorn Coach Cliff Gustafson, "with the power well distributed. We feel that we have one of our better series teams." Oklahoma also brings a veteran team, deep in pitching. The Sooners won 15 straight in mid-season—including two over Southern Cal—and carry a team batting average of .336. Oklahoma has an outstanding mound staff headed by sophomores Mickey Lashley (8-1) and Bob Shirley (11-2). Southern Cal's leader is third baseman Rich Dauer, a first-round selection Wednesday by Baltimore in the major league draft. He is hitting .392 with 15 home runs and 87 runs batted in. A starting outfielder for the Trojans is Anthony (A.D.) Davis of football fame. He is a .269 hitter. Seton Hall's hopes rest on momentum and speed. The Pirates have won 17 of their last 19 games and have stolen 91' bases in 106 tries. Harvard is back for the fourth time in seven years, and the Crimson also was a late bloomer, winning 14 of its final 15 games. After the opening night doubleheader. there will be three games Saturday and Sunday, two each Monday and Tuesday with single games Wednesday and Thursday, if necessary.
