MONDAY, JULY S, 1D03 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH titttt Outdanrs with Harold Urn-Hi txsiitiertmck Cnfp More Information on the scale- less carp caught by A. .1. Vfro- mnn of East Alton and reported In this column last Friday was received from a reader who prefers anonymity. The render quoted from an article on carp written by 3, T, Bodo of the Missouri Conservation Commission. In 1887 the U.S. Fish Commission arranged to get 227 mirror or leatherback carp, which nre virtually scaleless, and also 18 scale specie carp for brood stock. It is possible (he carp taken by Vroman is a defendant of those leatherback carp. Bode said in his article that carp have been cultured and developed by persons all through history. Various species of carp nre ideal for certain purposes especially in Europe. Some species are Ideal for pickling while others are better for baking and frying. It is for this reason that Iho various species brought different prices on the market. Many persons know Hint filets of carp run through a cube steak machine and then deep fried arc most delicious. Vroman reported that the leatherback carp, as we now call the scaleless fish he caught, didn't have any small bones such as the scale carp taken in a r e a waters. Although the reader who identified the fish said that he has caught hundreds of carp, he nor this writer had never seen that species before. Hourly Lost «!« Catfish Thursday morning Roger and his soil, Ro^lo n, Rte. 1, Alton, went fishing in a private lake nearby and almost had a story about' the biggest fish getting away.

II lakes a lol of lime lo tosl and try each lure al a fishing spol. The other evening we tried casting for awhile In Carllnville Lake with Dr. 15(1 Kodcky, Godfrey. He was sold on one lure and stuck to II but didn't get a strike. We tried a half a dozen lures or more in the time we had but ulso didn't gel a strike. We have hiul a trolline for years and have tried numerous bails ranging from worms, cul bait, crawdads, shrimp, doughballs, bacon and so on. But recently we sel a trolline one evening in a small hike or pond near Pleasant Hill using pork liver for bait. Imposing List The liver produced the most fish, all catfish, than we had ever taken off the trot.line before. Our group included Wade Gcrgeii and sons, I'nul and Bob, Wood River, and this writer's son, Harold Jr. The boys were even more excited over the Irollino production than us adults. Ironically hand line fishing failed to produce any fish a I all. If you aren't confused about lures, here arc some baits used by fishermen throughout the stale this past week to score many fish as reported by the Illinois Conservation Department. They include worms, minnows, red worms, crawfish, catfish bait, golden roaches, stink bail, soft shells, shrimp, nighl crawlers, dough bail, plugs, poppers, plastic worms, crickets, bucktails, spinners, flies, and pork rind. Now what is your choice? Or better yet, what do you think is a fish's choice? FIGHT RESULTS By TUB ASSOCIATED PRESS NEW YORK—Caspar Ortega, 150, Mexico, outpointed Billy Bello, 151, New York, 10.

LA Leads In Standings, Nothing Else LOS ANGELES (AP) — Give; nothing to go on but the lates weekly statistics, you could prob ably develop a first-rate case o tongue fatigue without convincin, anybody the Los Angeles Dodger should be higher than fourth o fiflh in the Nalional League stand ings today. The statistics show: 1. That Los Angeles, as of las weekend, ranked eighth in Nl team fielding. 2. That the Dodgers wer° secom in team balling—but that the were nearly 30 points back of Ih league's best hitting team, St Louis. 3. Thai the Dodgers were fift in scoring, 79 runs behind th leader. 4. That the Dodgers wore tie with the punchless New Yor Mets for eighth place in teai home runs. The Dodgers had h 49 homers—only 48 fewer than th San Francisco Giants. 5. That only two Dodger pitch ers were among the first 20 in th league in earned-run average. What it boils down to is lha the Dodgers are leading the Na tional League in practicall nolhing—unless you want to cour the standings. There they an Ihree games in front. After the Dodgers beat Cincinnati 4-0 and 3-1 Sunday, Iheir pitching staff had a remarkable earned-run average of 2.82. In their last eight games, Dodger pitchers have allowed only a dozen runs—an average of 1% a game. They pitched four shutouts during that span and the Dodgers won seven of the eight games, although they averaged only a litlle more than three runs a game themselves. BASEBALL HEROES By THE ASSOCIATED PUESS PITCHING — Sandy 1C ufax, Dodgers, registered his second straight shutout and eighth of the season, and became first 14-game winner in majors with 4-0 victory over Cincinnati. National League leading Dodgers also won the second game 3-1 for a doubleheadei sweep. BAITING — Don Zimmer, Senators, collected four hits, includ ng grand slam homer, and <noeked in seven runs as Wash- ngton extended its winning string lo seven games by beating the Los Angeles Angels twice, 7-3 and 6-4 Hart Injured, Dark Calls It a Disgrace SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Jltn-j my Hart looked great at the plate n his major league baseball de- iiil Sunday, yet his 1963 career tvlth the San Francisco Giants may have ended the day it started— victim of an errant pilch from Bob Gibson. "A disgrace," Manager Alvin 3ark said after • X-rays showed Hart suffered a fractured shoulder blade when hit by a Gibson pilch. "An accident," the St. Louis Cardinals' right-hander main- lained. Called up from Tacoma in the Pacific Coast League on Saltir- day, Hart saw his first action Sunday in the first game of a double- leader. He had two singles and tsvo walks in seven balling ap- icarancos as the Giants edged the Cards 4-3 in 15 Innings. In the second inning of the second game, the rookie third-baseman tried to duck away from the pitch thai hit his left shoulder. Ernie Bowman, the next hitter, tiad to back away from a pitch ind when Gibson came to bat in the top of the third, the Giants' Juan Marichal whistled a pitch past his hand. Plate umpire Al Barlick charged to the mound with a warning (hat brings an automatic $50 fine. It also brought Dark from the dugout to protest. After the game in which Gib son hurled a 5-0 shutout, he said "I think Marichal was throwing at me. If I had been throwing a the kid, he would have been justi fied. I wasn't. They told rne Har had hit pitches to the outside o (lie plate and I was trying to throw him close." Dark refused to discuss ihe mat Inr after the game, except lorm the injury was a disgrace Afler Dr. E. C. Sailer estimated Hart would be out for weeks, the manager added, "I don't see how he can play the res! of the year." St. Louis Manager Johnny Kcane said "I don't think Gibson threw at him. He doesn't even know Hart. I do think Marichal threw at Gibson in retaliation," During spring training, Dark said his hurlers would throw at pitchers who deck Giant baiters. Cubs Blow Chance In 9th, Lose 3-2 Over Counter Stock Issues Show Gains % SAM DAWSON Al* Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP)—The biggest stock market of them all has taken its full share of lumps in the last year but today finds at least one reason to crow. The National Security Traders Association says leading stocks on the over-the- counter market have been recovering recently at a faster rate than the popular averages of stocks listed on the exchanges. It was the OTC market that saw some of Hie most spectacular rises in the speculative stock spheres of 19(51—and some of the most disastrous (and sometimes scandalous) dips in the first half of 1%2. The fastest climbs and dizziest drops often came in fledgling issues, the kind that aren't listed on the nation's stock exchanges but are tried out over the counter. It was the OTC that drew much fire of the Securities & Exchange Commission when it asked Congress last month for new powers over slock trading, the persons who sell them, the companies involved and especially the now issues. Lag In/o Officcf Ptomnlcd In the Military A 20-year Air Force career go 10 weeks of training at Bain man, Ool Willis L. llelninntolpr, with his wife and children, is moving to Hawaii where he will take over the. duties of Senior Information Officer for the Chief of Staff of the Pacific area. CHICAGO (AP)-The All-Star break marks the halfway point in he major league baseball races and both the Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox are holding :heir own in their respective leagues. The Cubs have been baseball's biggest surprise and despite their loss to Philadelphia Sunday, they remain very much in the National League race with an excellent chance for a first division finish. The Cubs have a 45-37 record at present. Last year after 82 games they were 30-52 and went on to finish ninth. The big reason for their success has been pitching. Last year at this time their staff had a 4.9 earned run average. Now it is 2.97, lowest in the majors. They had a chance to d?feat the Phillies in tha ninth inning Sunday when they loaded the bases with one out on three walks but Dallas Green came in and struck out both Ellis Burton and Merritt Ranew to end the game, Their inspired play also has the crowds coming. They drew 18,277 Sunday to boost their season total to 492,210 or 171,334 ahead of last year. The Chicago White Sox finally won a game at Boston but had to go 12 innings for a 4-1 victory. The triumph lifted them into second place, five games behind the New York Yankees. Mike Hershberger singled home the winning run in the 12th inning and Nellie Fox doubled home a pair of insurance runs while Juan Pixarro picked up his llth victory in 15 decisions in relief. The fact that the Sox a couple of weeks ago were battling the Yankees for the lead only to suffer a slump is disappointing to their fans. But so far the Sox have been the only team to threaten the Yankees at all. Before the season started, the Sox were generally picked to finish fourth or even fifth behind New York, Detroit, Minnesota and possibly Baltimore. Where they eventually finish has nothing to do with the fact that they have played better bsll than expected during the first half of the season. After the All-Star game the Sox come home to open a three-game series with Detroit. The Cubs go to Cincinnati for a five-game series with the Reds.

(W) Dodger shortstop Maury Will was so fast at age 12, the play ground director sent lum horn for his birth certificate, recall Mrs. Guy D, Wills, mother of th new base stealing champion. "At playground track roeel they used to say 'Maury Will first, Donny Wills second an Bobby Wills third," says Mr: Wills, the mother of 12 chjldre and wife of a southeast Washing ton minister. Maury lives in Spokane with h! wife and live children, nampion for 1963. The Seattle boat driven by Ron flusson, former Akron, Ohio, lectrical contractor, won the onors Sunday by leaving her avored Seattle companion, de- ending champion Miss Thriftway, ar to the rear. A crowd estimaled at 185,000 atched Ihe dramalic bailie on ne Detroit River as Miss Bardahl eat out a field of 12 of the na- ion's highest-powered unlimited ydroplanes. The outcome of the seven 15- mile heats denied driver Bill Muney, handling Miss Thriftway, an istoric fifth Gold Cup victory. And in the last half of 1962, when the stock exchanges were making strong recoveries from the lows reached in June 1962, trading over the counler lagged, and so did prices of its stocks on average. While the OTC market is too large for full records of trading volume, some leading firms estimate sales to be about 20 per cent below last year. But the National Quotation Bureau, which reports on stocks actively traded over the counter, on slocks actively traded over the counter, says its industrial stock average rose 14.11 per cenl in Ihe first half of 1963. The Dow-Jones industrial index gained 8.4 per cent in the six months, and Standard & Poor's 500 listed stock average rose 9.93 per cent. The bureau says it OTC price averages "like those for listed stocks are based primarily on representative blue chip issues and are therefore comparable to leading listed stock average.;." Stocks listed on the exchanges are also sold over the counter, but most of the business is in unlisted issues (estimated as high as 50,000). The exchanges are called auction markets because all buy and sell orders are received there and eventually matched by the brokers. OTC is a negotiated market because sales are made by negotiation between broker-dealers, largely by private telephone, and often in different parts of the country. Some 4,600 of them belong to the National Association of Securilies Dealers, which policies the market under SEC supervision. About 5,500 individuals whose profession is trading in the OTC market belong to its industry group, the National Security Traders Association. Col Helmanloler is the son of Mr. and Mrs. W. E.

(UB) - "I jope they make it," says Sam Huff, "but it wouldn't surprise me if Paul Hornung and Alex [{arras never are permitted to return to the National Football League." Tinebacker Huff of the New York Giants was here for a sneaking appearance. "Even if both players were to hibernate a whole year I feel they would have a hard time being reinstated," adds Huff. Hornung and Karros wove suspended indefinitely for betting on games, New Rules The new rules asked by the SEC would compel all securities firms to belong to NASD or some other self-policing unit, tighten requirements for entering the business, and give SEC stricter controls over the concerns and their employes. The SEC also wants some 3,600 industrial and utility companies, banks and insurance companies, whose unlisted stocks are traded over the counter (those firms with 750 or more stockholders) to follow the same financial disclosure, proxy and insider-trading rules that apply to companies listed on exchanges. Banks and insurance companies particularly are objecting to this, preferring federal and state agencies already regulating them. Exchange officials feel that the new rules would lead many now unlisted industrial and utility firms to apply for listing—reducing by that much the size of the big OTC market. But the multitude of companies too small in assets, with too few stockholders or too low in trading volume, to meet exchange requirements probably will continue to be a mainstay of the OTC market, whatever Congress may do about stricter federal policing. And Wall Street will watch the course of prices and volume over the counter as one sign of the return of the little fellow to stock buying or of his burnt-finger dallying on the sidelines. Sgt. Mosley, who is an A i r Force flight facilities supervisor, is currently on an unusual assignment. He is attending Eastern Michigan University under the Air Forces's "Operation B o o t- strap" program, working toward a Bachelor of Science degree.
