Park Hills m~± ' ' To Begin Saturday • R*T 1\A1W U.sin *',*.» ^^^ . • . .J - Tourney By DAN McGRATH --Journal-Standard Sports Editor f/The fourth annual Park Hills men's championship golf tournament gets under way with a qualifying round Saturday, and upward of 45 golfers are ex- tected to tee it up in quesfof the title won by Dr. Bill nDreibelbis last year .'After Saturday's medal play, qualifying round, the players will be divided Mo three flights for three rounds of :match play competition, which will begin on Sunday and finish Saturday and {Sunday of next weekend. Players who ^re eliminated in the first round of srfcatch play will still have a shot at con- isolation titles in each flight. All three 'rounds will be played on the west Bourse. ;:.". Dreibelbis, the "defending champ heads a field which, as usual, includes some of Freeport's better golfers. Jim Fenton, a junior-to-be at the University of Illinois who lost to Dreibelbis 4 and 3 in last year's championship round, is one of them. ' "I've been hitting the ball pretty good. I'd have to say I'm a little better prepared this year than I was last year, although I'd like to be hitting my drives a little straighter. I'll feel a little more confident if I can do that," Fenton said. . Jim plays most of his golf at Freeport Country Club. He plays Park Hills occasionally, but has yet .to play a round on the west course this year. "I don't think that's a problem, though," he said. "I know the course well enough. You just have to hit it straight or you don't have a chance." Fenton, who won the intramural championship on the tough Savoy course at the U. of I. this spring, figures. Dreibelbis is once again the man to beat. "You never know about match play though," he feels. "I think Chuck Born is about the best match player in town, but if Dreibelbis is playing well, he's the man to beat." Born, Park Hills champion in two of the first three years of the tournament, is bypassing this yearV cpmpetitipn because of a conflict with softball. Fenton is n,ot the only younger player with definite designs on Dreibelbis' title. Eighteen-year-old Mike Yackle of Shannon, who lost a five-hole lead over the final seven .holes of his quarterfinal match with Born last year, is back and anxious to erase the memory of that disappointment; "I'm not playing too badly," said Yackle in an understatement. He's coming in off a third-place finish in a Northern Illinois Men's Junior Amateur Association tournament in Buffalo Grove in which he shot a 73. ;"I played pretty well, but I was in the .secpnd-to-last group to go off," he explained. "By the time I got to the greens they were pretty well chopped up, which made putting a little difficult. But outside of that I played pretty $ell. I've been trying to get as much tournament experience as I can, so I'm looking forward to the Park Hills tourney. Match play is something else." - Yackle said he fluctuated between the eighth and ninth spots on Northern Illinois University's golf team this seas$n. Mike completed his freshman y^ar at Northern in the spring but isn't siire he'll be going back. £"I like the school but I just don't like tlje course we play, and it's really difficult to play a golf course you don't like," he noted. 'Tm thinking seriously 4bout coming back here and going to Highland. Woody Fulkerson (Highland's golf coach) and I have talked a cpuple of times, and I really like'Park Hills. I've been playing the west course as often as 1 can." Yackle, like so many other outstanding players from the-area, is a Harry Rubendall pupil. " "I've been taking a lesson a week all summer, and it's really helped me," Yackle observed. "He can watch you swing once and spot so many little things that you're doing wrong and J don't even realize. I'd like to be a teaching pro myself some day. I enjoy teaching, and I'd sure like to teach as well as Mr. Rpbendall does." Yackle is seen as the man to beat by another player who figures to make his ' presence felt before the, Park Hills tourney runs its course-long hitting Steve Young, Yackle's partner in the Park Hills best ball tournament. "Mike has been playing real well. I'd say he's the man to watch out for," Young says. Steve beat Yackle 2 up for the championship flight consolation title last year after Bill Sullivan had sent him into the consolation bracket with a 4 and 3 upset victory in the first round. "I think" I'm playing a little better this year, though," Young says. "I'm hitting 'em pretty good. I like to play the west course because I have to concentrate more, especially on the back side. I can usually score pretty well on the west. "There are a few guys capable of winning it, I'd say," Steve added. "Whoever is playing well and can handle the pressure of match play will probably be the guy." Freeport (III.)

Closing Arguments Today In Forbes Assault Trial MINNEAPOLIS, Minn, (UPI) Closing arguments were scheduled for today in the assault trial of Boston Bruins hockey 'player Dave Forbes. Forbes is charged with aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon in connection with an ice fight last Jan. 4 during a game between the Bruins and the Minnesota North Stars. Minnesota player Henry Boucha's right eye was injured during the fight. Forbes testified Wednesday he may have had his hockey stick in his hand when he hit Boucha following a stint in Pony League Stars Begin Tournament Competition Tonight Freeport's Pony League all-star team will begin area tournament competition today at 5 p.m. against the : 'Dixon Pony League all-stars at the Pony League diamond in Rochelle. Rochelle will meet Kishwaukee in the second game of the double-elimina- : tion tourney tonight at 8. If successful tonight, the Freeport- ers will face game two's winner Friday night at 8. If it loses tonight, Freeport will play game two's loser Friday at 5. Other tournament games will be played Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m., pending the outcome of> today's and Friday's games. The area tournament winner will return to Rochelle next Friday for the district tournament, which Will also include the Rockford Pony League champion. The district winner is off to Northbrook for sectional tournament play, which begins Aug. 1. All Pony League tournaments are double elimination. Fred Linebarger, with help from Merle Wardlow and Robert Lamm, is managing the Pony League all-stars. the penalty box, but he said he didn't intend to use the stick as a weapon. Hockey players are "taught from very early days to stand up and defend themselves," Forbes said, because unless a player acts aggressively on the ice, "other players know that he will not pursue the puck" aggressively. The Boston forward told the court he felt he had to retaliate after Boucha hit him from behind during their first altercation on the ice. The incident resulted in seven minute penalties for each player. The state has charged that Forbes threatened Boucha in the penalty box, and then struck him with his stick, opening a gash over his eye. Forbes said Wednesday be couldn't remember exactly what he said in the penalty box. Boucha said Forbes threatened to shove his hockey stick . down his throat. When the two players came out of the penalty box Forbes said Boucha made a "turning movement." The Boston player testified: "I didn't know what was going to happen so I threw a punch at him." Forbes said he didn't know at ,the time he was punching Boucha ^hat Boucha was injured. "I was just thinking about how to get as many punches in on Mr. Boucha as I could," he said. "When I was pulled off, I did notice Mr. Boucha turn over and I saw blood on the ice. But I was unaware of how bad the injury was." Forbes testified he was under considerable stress at the time of the incident because the game was "the last of a disastrous road trip" and the Bruins >were getting "very bad press" in Boston. He said the Boston players also were under a lot of pressure from coach_Don Cherry. Forbes' jury trial is the first U.S. trial of a hockey player for conduct during a game. By TED PECK For The Journal-Standard The Illinois statue lottery has actually been going on for years, just ask any local deer hunter who has had to send in $5 for a chance to stalk wily Odo- coileus virginiana with a firearm. The state lottery keeps offering new and different games to keep the interest of the public. In wake of the spring drawing for deer permits, it appears to many would-be deer hunters that the state conservation department has added some new "games" of its own. Maybe somebody knows what all the deer hunting rules and procedures are. If anyone knows, please contact the area conservation police offices - they told me recently that they weren't sure of all the procedures. A little investigating revealed some legal anomalies for the upcoming season. There will be a second drawing for unfilled counties "soon" for permit applicants who .were unsuccessful in the first go-round. According to one warden, the date hasn't been set yet but it "looks like it will be August." If you were lucky enough to be a "winner" in the first drawing you might wonder where the tags are which were used in past years to enable you to legally move your killed venison. If you didn't get tags this year don't be alarmed - you are supposed to tag the deer with the permit form itself. How to affix the tag to the animal is left up to the individual hunter, at least that'.s what the wardens think. Since- there is no handy snap on the permit, you had better carry glue, string, 16 penny nails or staples. The deer must be tagged and the date marked on the permit before the carcass is moved. This procedure probably won't pose any real problems until the happy hunter secures his badge of success to the fender of a '72 Buick and heads for the check station. The deer might remain tied, but there's a good chance the tag will be seen in the rear view mirror as it blows down the highway. I can't help but think of a Globetrotter warm-up drill when trying to tell you about landowner permit procedures. If you live on or own 40 or more acres you can apply for a free permit to hunt the landowner's property only. If you merely live on the land you are out of luck - you have to till the soil. I wonder if a garden counts? '. If you are a landowner of 40 or more acres you can get a permit for ?5 to hunt any place in the county with permission. Your immediate family can ' . also obtain permits for a $5 fee each. If you qualified by virtue of owning or living on the land you still need a hunting license, which can be obtained at many local businesses for $3.25. This also applies to "lottery winners." At least the new guidelines didn't include a passage granting shotgun permits to blind people, free of charge or for a nominal fee. If you are still with me, following are criteria for firearms^ Shotguns and muzzle loading rifles only are permitted in the firearms sea_son. Muzzle loaders must be larger than .38 caliber and must have barrels of 26 inches or longer to be legal. Black powder is permitted. Muzzle loaders must be either flintlock or percussion. No other sidearms are per- ' bmitted. . Shotguns, firing rifled slugs only, must be at least 20 gauge but not larger than la gauge. If you are hunting deer, upland game or even trapping, you are required to wear yellow, red or orange clothing on at least the upper half of your body. Here, comes another curve. Duck hunters don't have to wear safety colors if they are "near water." Does a canteen qualify? If you are duck hunting in a cornfield during the shotgun deer season, chances are you won't get a ticket for wearing a brown coat, it you can prove you are duck hunting only. With some of the people who will enter the field with deer slugs this year, looking for a big buck, you might consider yourself lucky if you live long enough to argue with a game warden. I think a mandatory gun safety and knowledge law is long overdue. Getting into the smaller print, if you are successful you must visit the check station the same clay. Check stations close at 7 p.m. Hunting hours are from 6-30 t'o 4 CST daily for the six day split season. The first half will be Nov. 21, 22 and 23. The final frame will bo held Dec. 12,13 and 14. I will be in Carroll County, ait Illinois deer hunting hot spot for this year's whitctail season. I will be in the cafes in the prc-dawn hours of opening day to hear the anticipation. I may be in the bars that night to hear the stories of both the successful and unsuccessful. You probably won't see me in the fields those six clays because I don't want to become a statistic of impractlr cal legislation. Dcor hunting can be extremely thrilling and'frustrating at the same time, but as years pass it seems to be getting more dangerous, or maybe I'm getting more sane. Pistons Top Warriors At HCC A 29-point outburst by Joe Bellich and double figures scoring from three of his teammates carried the Pistons to a 99-96 victory over the Warriors in Highland C&llege summer basketball action at Highland Tuesday night. Art Shipp of the Warriors took game honors with 30 points. In Tuesday night's other games, the Celtics, behind the 24-point scoring of Doug Felder, routed the Hawks 74-55 and the Rockets were awarded a forfeit victory over the Bullets.
