ALTUN 1ELKUUAPH THURSDAY, JULY 18, 1U03 o One Takes Us Seriously, Cub VIP States By CttAltLtiS CltAMfitefctAtN AfcSbdated Press SpoHs WHtor CH1CA66 If) — There are man bft&bftfl fans who still thing tl seeond-frlaee Chicago Cubs are do Iftg it wjtb mirrors. "One? 6f the oddest things aboi our season," says Vice Presiden J6htt Holland, "is that people jus ckJn'Hake us seriously. They can' believe we are up there in tli face t6 stay. They are alway expecting the bubble to burst. "It's' time they realize that w are a pretty solid club. With th possible exception of the Los An geles dodgers, our pitching i second to none and our bull pen Is tops." SIHee the Cubs obviously ar not doing It with mirrors, are thej doing it with electronic compu ters? "I'm going to be non-committa on just how much it has helped to chart every game and feed the data into a computer for an swers," says Atliletic Director Bob Whitlow. "We had no pre conceived idea on the system's value and we'll know better a the end of the season. "We are getting a new compu ter that will speed up our pro gramming with the use of mag netic tape rather than punch cards. "From our statistical approach however, we have found we have a better book on opposing club; as well as individuals. Aiding the over-all earned run average o our pitchers (near 2.70, lowest in . the majors) probably is the sta tistical value to them of knowing how to deploy their defense against batters for the type o pitches they throw. "If an infielder or outfielder i deployed to where the balls are hit, you have licked quite a prob lem." "But you can't draw absolute conclusions with computers—situations always remain fluid. Yoi can have a maximum amount ol information and base the rest on judgment." The Cubs' electronic intelli gence system "has produced surprising items," said Whitlow. "For instance, it has shown that only about one batter out of 11 will swing at a first pitch if it is a breaking one. Why, I don't know. "Another surprising thing to me is how consistently Milwaukee's Hank Aaron has been hitting against certain type of pitches— with the exception of opposite field home runs." . ; Aaron collected a tiple and a single, and Eddie Mathews pounded his 12th homer as the Braves ended the Cubs' three-game winning streak 6-4 Wednesday. Milwaukee's 16-hit barrage was its biggest production of the season. Four Cub pitchers could not stem the Braves' batwork, with Paul Toth getting the loss after Glen Hobbie was shelled after two-thirds ol an inning. Ellis Burton drove in two Cub runs with Ron Santo and Leo Burke each bringing home one. The Cubs close their series with Milwaukee today by sending Larry Jackson (10-7) against Tony Cloninger (6-5). Ron Hansen's two-run home run in the seventh pushed the White Sox from behind to an 8-2 victory over Washington. The Sox scored five more times in the eighth with Mike Hershberger's two-run double the big hit. Dave DeBusschere, who had lost both of his previous major league decisions, was withdrawn for a pinch batter after seven in nings. Hoyt Wilhelm took over to preserve the victory. The Sox are idle today before opening a weekend series with the Boston Red Sox. BOWLING BOWL ARENA Wed.

Efficiency In Fishing Two catfish were caught on a single hook at the same time last week at a private lake near Grafton by Joseph LeVora, 3517 Oscar St. He was using worms for bait and somehow part of the hook and worm came through the gills of one fish arid in turn was taken by another catfish. LeVora lias a witness to prove it. "I have heard of two fish being caughO on a plug at the same time but I have never heard of two being caught on a single hook at one time," LeVora pointed out. I have heard of a small fish being caught and then being swallowed by a larger one." Stocked Fishing Area Mr. mid Airs. Dick Connell and children, 3804 Oscar St., visited Pine Lakes Fishing Park near Pittsfield Sunday and found the park has three lakes. A 35-acre lake is stocked with up to seven- pound bass, two one-acre lakes are stocked with 16,000 pounds ol adult carp, four 25-pound catfish and bluegill. Some fish are tag- led in the smaller lake to win a cash prize. Connell said the park has picnic tables, barbecue pits, rest rooms and other accomodations. Picnicking is free but there is a c h.a r g e for fishing. Connell's daughter, Patricia Ann, 2%, managed to catch a larger fish than ler dad. Duck Hunters Meeting A special meeting has been set 'or Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. lor members of the Alton-Wood River Sportsmen's Club and the Duck and Goose Hunters Assn. of Illinois, announced Mel Rushing, president of the Sportsmen's Club. Discussions will be had on a fall program of much interest to waterfowl hunters. Visited Resort Lakes Harry S. Clark, Hardin, wanted to visit Kentucky Lake recently but found that all resorts were booked until fall. Not to be outdone, his wife bought a tent and other camping gear. They found camping accommodations were ample including a lack of insects due to aerial spraying. En route a tire blew out on Clark's boat trailer and it was most difficult to find a replacement because of its small size. He advises boatowners and even camping trailer owners to carry a spare tire for emergency use. This writer has borrowed a trailer tire from a friend who is a dealer to carry along on distant trips. The idea was that if the tire was used, it would be purchased. Clark went from Kentucky Lake to the Lake of the Ozarks where they found resort reservations. He, his wife and four-year-old son all caught fish but Clark is keeping the size secret.
