(AP) — To the surprise of no one, defending champion Judy Eller and medal- ist Jo Anne Gunderson wound up playing each other for the title today in the 16th annaul Women's Collegiate Golf Tournament. Co-favoriWs from the,start, the two brilliant young Curjis Cup stars advanced methodically through a field that gave them trouble only in spots — and Judy ran into most of that.

"Hot" Fish Bait Elmer Keffer of Jerseyville has found the Utopia in fish bait as far as this writer is concerned. The other day while fishing in waters off Piasa Creek, we watched Keffer use Catalpa worms and land numerous large bluegill and several crappie. Oui minnows, earth worms, flies plugs and artificial eels am worms didn't begin to attrac the fish anywhere near as much as the Catalpa worms which re semble caterpillars. Keffer is squeamish about putting the worms on the hook and used a rag to hold them. His daughte picks the worms off trees to: him. It always has baffled us 'how water-bound fish can develop such a taste for a bait that i found in trees and entirely re mote from the water. But at ans rate, this is the best proven fish ing bait tip in a long time.

Outboard motors in use increased 130 per cent and participants in recreational boating 160 per cent. Meanwhile attendance at major-league baseball decreaed 16 per cent and a 11 minor-league baseball 231 per! cent.
