In the wake of criticism from boWi- 'Within and without the racing' fraternity, USAC officials announced they would stagey meeting today while die issue was still fresh. Racing activity during May resulted in the death of veteran driver Art Polfcurd, Medford, Ore., and Armjand Duran, a pit crewman, struck by a fire truck during the running of the rain-delayed end rain-shortened [irace Wednesday. Pollard* was 'killed in a practice crash May il2. Even "500" winner Gordon Johneock and his sponsor, Andy Gfanatelli, have asked USAC amd other racing officials to take action to curtail the speeds of the oars. Johneock eventually won the race which was called by rain after 332.5 miles. Smyth Makes Statement "We plan to discuss and consider several recommendations for rules modifications made in the past week by drivers, car owners, track operators and public (members,'* William J. Smyth, USAC executive director, said Friday evening. Smyth said recommendations resulting tan the special meeting today would be announced later. Normally, rule changes are first recommended by USAC's rules committee, thten approved by the board of directors. USAC officials were also (reportedly trying to convince its technical committee head, Frank Del Roy, who resigned , following the race, to reconsider. In addition to the two fatalities, several pemsons were injured severely, including race drivers Salt Wialther, burned in a crash in an abortive attempt to run the race Monday, and Swede Savage, burned critically in a crash Wednesday. A number of fans were also burned by fire from Walther's crash. Newspaper Suggests Change •The indianapolis News suggested that "a change in the nDethod of starting the race also is needed since the cams are much widter now than when the three-car rows were established." The Indianapolis Star, however, said, "It's characteristic of the 500 thiat when drivers arc finished with whatever mileage they make in one year's race, they stairt thinking about next year.

Th$, victory was the third in, six decisions for Bill Blass, who led the Pirates with 19 victories last season. He went six innings, allowing eight hits and five runs before being relieved. Blass displayed a silver bullet 'after the game which he called! his good luck charm. It was given to Blass Thursday by a stranger eager to help the veteran right-hander out of his season long skimp. When asked who the (man was, Blass replied: "1 didn't know him but lie was a masked man on a white horse and he had an Indian with him." The Pirates exploded for five runs in the third inning, highlighted by Hebner's two-run double land Stargell's two-run homer. Hebner drove in four runs in the contest with SanguMlen and Stargell driving in two apiece. | In other games Atlanta edged Chicago, 8-7, St. Louis topped Houston, 4-2, San Diego blanked New York, 4-0, San Francisco edged Philadelphia, 2-1, and Los Angeles beat Montreal, 3-2.

(UPI) The Chicago White Sox* Wilbur Wood, the major leagues' win- hingest pitcher, couldn't get past the fifth inning Friday night and lost to the Milwaukee Brewers and Chris Short 5-3. The Brewers' George Scott opened the fourth inning with his fifth home run of the year to give Milwaukee a 2-0 lead. The following inning Scott doubled home another rUn, one of two the Brewers managed off Wood in the fifth. For Wood, now 13-4, it was only his second- defeat in his last 14 decisions and ended a five - game winning streak. Milwaukee reached him for 11 hits and all its runs in the five innings he worked. Bart Johnson pitched three innings of scoreless .relief for the Sox. Short, a veteran lefthander, was making his 300th big league appearance and his first start since Aug. 30. 1971, when he was with Philadelphia. He gave up six hits, two walks and one run in six innings in improving his 1973 record to 2-1. Sixth inning singles by Ellie Rodriguez, Garman Thomas and Tim Johnson knocked out Wood and made the score 5-1. The Sox had scored their first run in the fifth inning when Ed Herrmann forced out Rick Reichardt, who had singled, sent to second on an infield out by Eddie Leon and scored on an infield single by Luis Alvarado. Pat Kelly doubled and scored on Bill Melton's single in the eighth inning for the Sox, and Herrmann led off the ninth with a homer, to round out the game's scoring.

NORTHOATE LANES CHICAGO (UPI) - The division - leading Chicago Cubs may have been just what the struggling Atlanta Braves have been waiting for to make their move. The Braves, who managed to score only 11 runs in seven games before Friday, came away with an 8-7 victory over the Cubs, thanks to a seventh- inning surge featuring a double by Marty Perez, Ralph Garr's two-run homier and a go-ahead run singled in by pinch hitter Dick Dietz. The win went to Pat Dobson, the Braves' second reliever and beneficiary of the rally. But a vital save, his seventh, was earned by Phi Niekro, who came on in the seventh inning East Moline Race Results KIHST RACK (mile pace) Smokey J. (G. Noonan) 3.60 5.00 3 00 Dangerous Tom \-.

It was Niekro's first mound chore since he slipped and fell in a shower stall at Pittsburgh Sunday and injured his' ribs. That's what had him worried. "I wasn't bothered much about the bases being loaded," he said. "There were two outs. What bothered me was that tight elastic corset around my ribs. It was hard for me to catch my breath." Niekro, who put the Cubs down in order in the seventh and eighth innings, retired the first two batters in the ninth before two singles and a walk to Billy Williams filled the bases. Jose Cardenal bounced into a force-out to end the game. The walk to Williams was not intentional, bust it may have been a wise move nonetheless. The Cubs slugger had previously belted a lead-off homer in the third inning and hit his eighth circuit clout of the year with two runners on base in the fourth. The Cubs got a quick lead when Ron Santo homered with Rick Monday and Williams on base in the first inning. Hank Aaron did not play Friday, but he was expected to return to the Braves' line - up Sunday to resume his drive toward an alRime major league home run record.

HUMPHREY CHARLOTTE, N.C. (UPI) The pressure today was on Leonard Thompson, who emerged from the middle ranks of professional goltfdom Friday with a sizzling 12-under-par 132 that gave him a two-stroke second-round lead in the $200,000 Kemper Open. But he figures he can take it. "I just try to play along and whatever happens happens," he said. "I'll just do the best I can." The best he could was plenty good enough through the second round. The 26-year-old, who joined the tour just last year, had rounds of 67 and 65—the latter tying a record for the 7,219-yard Quail Hollow Country Club course. i Runner-up to Thompson, ri!st| on the tour money list this year, were Lanny Wadkins and Ken Still at 10-under 134. Wadkins, No. 4 in money winnings this year, shot a second round 68 and Still, a 13- year PGA tour veteran without a win fon two years, shot his second straight 67. Alone at 135 was first-round leader Tom Weiskopf, who managed a 70 Friday despite two bogies. Charles Coody had seven birdies versus one bogey to card a six-uncler 66, putting him next in line at 136. There were half a dozen players at 138, six under pan-. They were Larry Ziegler, George Johnson, Art Wall Jr., i/ou Graham, Bob Shaw and Jim Dent. There were 11 men at 139—including Lee Trevino, Dave Hill, Dan Sokes, 61-year-old Sam Snead, Bert Greene, Mac McLendon, Ron Funseth, Wayne Yates, Al Geiberger, "CM Chi" Rodriguez and Bert Yancey. Scares in general remained low as weather conditions continued to be ideal—sunny, deaf skies; temperatures of around 80 and mild winds. The field was trimmed from 147 players to 85 after Friday's round, with a score of even par J 44 necessary to continue competition in today's third round. other decision * makers should start doing some very hard thinking about next year. They should be thinking about the (disintegration of cars in accidents, about flaming fuel gushing from ruptured tanks, about the vulnerability of spectators at the edge of the track. "To sum it up, there is need for some deep attention to the safety of the race. It's essential, we think, to mainfcain- |ing the standing of the '500' as the big one in racing." Northern Pike Robert McClusky, Avon, displays the 10 pound, % ounce northern pike which he caught at Little Swan Lake on Memorial Day. j ^Xl MOOSE TALES ^ MOOSE JOHNSON jTjl After a lot of careful thought, we may have discovered the secret of catching fish. Our theory is simple. Here it is - first of all, you wait 'til a good ol' miserable day comes along, the kind that includes lots of rain, thunder, lightning and wind. Then you venture out to your favorite lake, pond or stream and start throwing lures. The fish, who many consider smarter than most fishermen, are completely dazed at seeing a lure enter their domain, so they just have to strike. The end results are a surprised and subdued fish. Chuck Buzick and Bob Ericson, the younger one, tried the Victoria stripmine area this past Sunday evening. After sitting in the car 'til it stopped raining, the pair tried their skill. Results were two bass — one weighed '4 pounds and the other 4 J /2. This was the kind of day that might be even considered too wet for the fish. Duane Sprinkle is another true fisherman who doesn't mind bad weather. We learned from Jim Healey that Sprinkle fished an area creek and made a catch of six beautiful smallmouth bass. Included were a 2-pounder and another weighing 2Ms pounds. Also scoring nice catches at Jim's was Bill Thurman with seven bullheads, the largest weighing 2Va pounds. This size bullhead can certainly be classed as a big 'un. Bill also caught 21 crappie with a 2-pounder being the largest. Bill hails from the Monmouth area and made his catch at Lake Storey. Gary Willis took 12 crappie from Lake Storey in the % of a pound to a pound class. Ralph Cannon, along with Sam Robertson and Robby Robertson tried their luck in Wisconsin for catfish. The trio brought back 50 channels. Some of their catch included 4 to 5-pounders. Ralph told us that they really caught 58 but eight of them escaped from their fish basket. Gale Ward's didn't have any fabulous fish catches to report. However, Jack Masterson told us of a gentleman, who comes in quite often, fishing for bluegills at Lake Storey. The man had one rod WORST SEAT IN THE HOUSE It's no fun to be confined by a serious accident or illness.

When he started to lift it from the water, it didn't lift so easy. A big-northern was hooked. After playing it awhile it managed to break the pole, then grabbing the remaining part of the broken pole, he played it until it finally broke the line.' The gentleman stated that he realized he had hooked a pretty good one. A wild guess on our part would be that he might have hooked a bluegill and when he started to bring it from the water, along comes ol' hungry Mr. Northern who deemed the bluegill as a nice tasty morsel and smugly swam away. Wendell Albert, sales rep for Sea Star Boats informed us that huge crappie were being caught at Lake Decatur. Also, one of his dealers from the Keokuk, Iowa, area states that fishermen are having good luck on ,walleye fishing below the dam. We would like to ask our readers to send us any theories or ideas they might have on trying to outsmart fish.
