Wednesday, March 16, 1966 Hook, Line & Sinker By CHESTER ROGERS Suddenly everybody is catching fish. Bailey LeCompte, them over the side of the house "pro" took Fred O'Hagan out the other day and gave him a bass catching lesson. Bailey said they left the house about eight, came home in time for lunch with 28 of the nicest bass you'd want, two of them going over six pounds, none under three- Bailey, of course, used his old favorite, the Bomber bait. He likes the one with the feather jig instead of tile rubber skirt. Some of the feathers on his jigs started coming apart one day, so Bailey sent them back to Bomber. In appreciation they sent him a new batch plus a bonus batch. "Sure caught a winner that ^boat. and couldn't drop a line the real | without catching a big white time," said LeCompte. This fishing expedition was the first one in some time for LeCompte, but you can be sure it won't be the last Not for this fellow who likes the catching as much as he likes the eating. A real whopper of a fishing story came from Mr. and Mrs. Jimmy Darouse. They were guests of Mr. and Mrs. Norval Locker on their Lake Houston houseboat. Their boat is docked at Miller's Camp at the old Atascocita road landing. They used minnows, dangled perch. Mrs. Darouse said they were the biggest white perch she had ever caueht in Texas. "Why, I could get only three of those fish in a gallon carton," Mrs. Darouse said, "and that's after Jimmy chopped off their heads and tails and sliced out the fins.'" Now that's a pretty good fish story, isn't it? But just add the kicker that they caught 75 of the tasty table morsels and you have all of the makings of one of the best fishing stories of the week. There was one other big fishing expedition we heard about but at the time the results were unavailable. Gordon Johnson engineered the trip to the Trinity River at the Sam Houston Lake Estates, up about Moss Hill, which, as you know, is between Liberty and Livingston on State Highway 146. Gordon talked (Butch) Hardison, Benny Simms, Larry Miller and a couple of other river trot line fishermen into building up the trip. They carried a pickup truck loaded with gear, a car loaded with fisherman and a trailer ful lof food and equipment. They had so much gear you would have thought they were going all the way to Alaska, or the Arctic Circle. Yes, you'rP 'right, they were just making an overnight trip. A full report of the catch is due later.

You'll find PLUMBING CONTRACTORS fast in the YELLOW PAGES. Where your fingers do the walking. The Robert E. Lee sophomore and junior varsity baseball squads get iinto the swing of spring sports this week with both teams playing their first games of the season. Coach Roland Kudla and his group of untried sophs make their first start of the 1966 season in Anahuac against the Anahuac Panthers while coach Paul BiU Kern's JVs meet Deer Park there at 4 p.m. Thursday. Kern has established a probable lineup for the junior varsity's initial encounter with the Deer but indicated that nothing is definite and changes could be made Wednesday depending on the boys' performances. AS of now his first choices for Thursday's game are James Johnson catching, Bobby Sam- way pitching, Bobby Slack at first, Bill Barnes at second, Ira Thompson at shortstop, Mike Henderson at third, Eddie Carroll in left field, Larry Wilkey in center, and Richard Lopez in right. The junior varsity crew is composed of 26 boys with 16, including the starting lineup, looking like fairly good prospects. Kern made it a point not to .count the others out though say-1 Jin that with things as unsettled' as they are, any of the others could come around and help the team out. [ As of now Kern's main prob-j Jem lies in his pitching staff with' only two boys, Samway and Joel' Carlisle, doing the hurling, both' of whom are having trouble finding the strike zone. Kern indicated that Thompson and Slack might also see some mound duty in an effort to bolster the pitching corps. Carroll appears to be one of the top JV prospects, especially in the bacting department. Garcia, a transfer from Houston, is also being heavily counted on to come through. The sophomore team is really in the fog as far as personnel is concerned. All the new faces plus recent bad weather constitute most of Kudla's problems. Kudla's tentative lineup for the Anahuac contest includes Jimmy Welch catching, Mike Hawks pitching, Dennis McZeal Ib, Jerry Acosta 2b, Mike Hunt ss, Rogers Simmons 3b, Ronnie Garrett If, Blair Graham cf, and Randy Short rf. Gary Herringfon— Ex-Gander Looking Forward To Return The same situation can he found on the sophomore team as with the JVs, though, with ail positions being very unsettled. Kudla plans to take about 20 of his crew of 45 to Anahuac and to take a close look at all of them. Gametime for the sophomores is S p.m. with the contest to be held at the Anahuac American Legion field. secutive 12-1A swimming title. Both REL. and Brazosport are undefeated thus far this season and it's a cinch that something is going to have to give ia Thursday's encounter. So far this year the Ganders have swept to five consecutive victories in dual competition coming at the expense 01 Sam Raybum, Texas City, Pasadena, i Galveston Ball, and South Houston, all 12-4A opponents. It is generally conceded that the Exporters won't be the pushovers that the previous Gander opponents have been with Bra- zosport strength centered around four versatile tankers. The Exporters' Crosley heads j the list having four of the best Brazosport times in individual events and swimming on both relay teams. Crosley has clipped off a 2:10.5 in the 200 yard freestyle, a 2:29.5 in the 200 yard indivi- jdal medley, a 1:06.5 in the ISC- yard butterfly, and a 4:45.0 in "It's just a dream com true," former Gander baseba great Gary Herrington sai when informed that the Baytown school board had okayed his ap plication for employment a Robert E. Lee under hea Coach Pete Sultis. "A fellow always wants 1 move up and to me, moving t Baytown is moving up," Her rington, who has coached a Texas City's Levi Fry Jurdo High School for the past two years, said. Sultis expects Herrington, former football letterman REL, to be a great asset to his program. "Gary was a real good foot sail player and baseball play er," Sultis said, "and I'm happ. x> have him on my staff and' know hell do a good job." Sultis plans to turn the hea baseball chores and the sopho more line duties over to the na tive Baytonian, a Texas A&S graduate of 1959.

Although considered by Sultis as an astute football coach, Herrington's biggest background is baseball and he is expected to be a keen instructor for the '67 Gander baseball team. In '67 he will be replacing Don Treuhardt, the new assistant principal at Ross Sterling High School, at the baseball resigns. At A&M Henington was the All Southwest Conference catcher for three years, being named catcher of the NCAA Regional team his sophomore and senior years, and captain of his respective A&M teams his freshman and senior years. Upon garduation, Herrington signed with the San Francisco Giant organization and later moved into the Los Angeles Angel farm system, ending his career with Honolulu of the Pacific Coast League. In 1956 Gary caught for the Mechanics Uniform semi - pro team that won the national championship. In 1958 Gary was named to the All State semipro team while playing for the Alpine Cowboys, second in the national tournament. Herrington, a three*year letterman at REL and a member of the third place high school team in the state in 1955, also aw duty in the Western Canadian semi-Pro League. After his baseball career ended, Herrington coached at Chico, Tex., befor e moving to Texas City. Next year Herrington will be crossing bats with former teammate at A&M, J. B. Carroll, now head baseball coach at Srazosport, winner of the state 4A title in 1964. One of Herrington's hopes is rganizlng a summer team for members of the high school earn that are eligible, under the Jniversity Jnterscholastic League rules. "Baseball is a game that has o be played together," Herring- said. "You need to know moves of all of your teammates and about the only way o really do this is to have them laying together during the summer.

The Ganders can't match any of these times because they have been swimming by meters aD year with one exception which was about a month ago when the boys were still getting in shape. "The boys have come along real well this season and I'm really proud of them," said t coach Ron Kramer, "We started jthe year with one letterman and ,a bunch of inexperienced kids jwho have shown real improve: ment."
