Galesburg Registef-MaiI, Gglesburgj THupsday; June 7, 1973 15 ,— ' 1 - J , -——-i'i T* I ri'ful'inir Sportsmanship Prevails at $10,000 Fishing Tournf y By VIC WATIA United Press International I ihaid booted two tournament* si /ye bass on a lure called the "Big 0," but now the deep diving plug was hung up somewhere below me in about five feet of water and T had broken my line in an effort to get it loose. Illinois Outdoors "If you want to go in after it, lilt hold the boat," said Lyle Underwood, the fishing partner I had draiwn for the first day of flast weekend's 1973 Kentucky Lake Invitational fashing tournament alt Kentucky Lake, Ky. His comment surprised me because I had been warned not to look forward to too much sportsmanship in a fishing contest where prize money was involved, But I needed no further word, and stripped out of my jump suit and dove in the water to recover the plug. I finally located it, snagged on an old trot line, and surfaced and asked Lyle to hand me a knife to cut it loose. He did. Some Story "Well, you've got some story to tell about your first day, partner," I said, after returning to the boat. "When a lure is working that good, and it's the only one you Save, I don't blame you for going after it," Lyle said. An hour later I was glad I had taken the swim because the plug brought in a i l A pound bass that put me wilihin shooting range of jplacieimoney by the time the day was out. However, my hopes of getting in the top 30 of 165 fishermen in the tournament were dashed the second day when engine trouble forced my neat partner, Don Sfcrader, and me to return to shore from a lake rolling with white caps. I had entered the Bass Cast­ ors Association sppnsored tournament in tine first place to find out Just how tournament fishing was working out. The fishermen, who had gathered from as to away as Texas •and Minnesota, showed some of the finest sportsmanship ever displayed on a lake, despite the fact they were competing for $10,000 in prizes. During 1he second day of the tournament, when one of my fishing reels didn't hold up to the estimated 1,100 casts a tournament fisherman makes each day, Don loaned me one of his casting reels. To top it off, he never complained once when my outboamd motor gave us trouble. Tournament fishing Is catching on fast wJflh the public. The shoreline was crowded with ob­ servers both days during the starts when more than 80 boats raced off the line to fishing holes, In the evening, many gathered for the weigh-ins. The Kentucky Lake tournament provided numerous problems for the fishermen because of daily irises in the water level of the lake, whdeh is controlled by the Kentucky Dam. Some 80 fishermen returned the first day without a fish, unable to form a pattern and locate them because of the changing water levels. Three types of lures dominated the tournament—The spinner bait, plastic worm and big diving plugs called the "Big O," "Big N" and "Big B." The attitude of both my fishing partners, who live in the Kentucky Lake area, at times made me forget 1 was even fishing a tournament. The only apprehensive moments I had were the starts, when all the high-powered boats lined up waiting to blast off to their fishing holes. Anytime that many boats, negardless of horsepower, take off at the same time, there could be accidents. Fortunately, the smaller and slower boat owners haidf jenough sense to hang 'back at the starts, and if the procedure continues to be followed, ateddejits probably will be avoided.'' To avoid accidents, a f e t y rules are enforced, such as the wearing of life jackets and prohibiting carrying alcoholic beverages in boats. Launch Intensive Probe of Late Lawmakers Finances ANNAPOLIS, Md. (UPI) An in-depth investigation (began today into the 1971 campaign finances of the late Rep. William 0. Mills, R-Md., who killed himself last month after reports he had hidden a $25,000 contribution from the Committee to Re-elect the President (CRP). The Maryland Board of Elections Wednesday night au­ thorized auditor Albert Lawler to "take whatever steps are n e c c s s ary," including the chance they could lead him to the CRP. The board also indicated interest in reports CRP funneled nearly $50,000' to the Maryland GOP in 1972 as seed money for a "salute to Ted Agnew" night in Baltimore. That information came during testimony Wednesday before the Senate's Watergate committee. Board Chairman Reginald Asplen said any violations found in the Mills case would be referred to the Maryland attorney general 'for appropriate action." Public Has Right to Know "Since Mills is no longer with us, if guilt is found of course no action can be taken against him. But the investigation should be done because the public has the right to know what happened," he said. Mills, found dead of a self- inflicted gunshot wound, left suicide notes in which he claimed he was innocent of any wrongdoing but couldn't prove it. His campaign treasurer from the 1971 campaign was killed in a traffic accident last year. The Government Accounting Office first reported the campaign donation. Washington newspapers later reported the funds were never reported to the state election board. Interior Secretary Rogers C. B. Morton, who Mills succeeded in office as Maryland's 1st District congressman in a special 1971 election;" after Morton was named; to the Cabinet, has said he solicited the loan from then ' CRP Chairman John Mitchdll. Never Saw Money Morton also has said he never saw the money and that he doesn't think Mills had any personal knowledge,' of it because he was busy in, his first election campaign. ;.
