Cubs Full of B's CHICAGO (AP) — Maybe the reason the Cubs have been so pesky this baseball season is because they've got a lot of B's.

Lyon, D.D.S., (right) and Dutch Owen hold string of bass and channel catfish taken in three hours trolling at Kentucky Lake last weekend. The bass weighed front 4i/& tip to six pounds. See River Ripples column for more Information. and Outdoors with Harold Brand Fishing Dog Days? "Who says you can't catch lish in August?" asked Dr. Richard L. Lyon, 6 Monterey PI. Dr. Lyon proved that the adage fish won't bile m numbers in hot weather Isn't quite true during "a weekend fishing trip to Kentucky Lake last Friday. He, his wife, Dorothy, and children Johnnie 9, Susan 12 and Mary 5, flew there in their Cessna 195 five-place airplane in 75 minutes. Many bass, crappie, Walleye, and catfish were taken in short periods of trolling with a Sane- Seine bass lure, a chrome plated spoon-type design. Their guide, Dutch Owen, who manufactures the lure, used a depth finder and located the fish 12 feet down. All trolling then was done at that depth. Fish Hit Hard "We trolled back and forth through the fish with wonderful results," Dr. Lyon said. "When the fish struck it was like hitting a stump. The fish ran with the line like sailfish and some broke water to leap liigh in the water. Johnnie took a six-pound bass, and Susan scored two large channel catfish trolling. Other bass weighed up to 4M> pounds and walleyes weighed up to two pounds." The state of Kentucky maintains a Fishermen's One-S top landing strip near Kenlake State Hotel which sends a station wagon to the strip for visitors. Dr. Lyon said that the guide furnished everything, boat, motor, tackle for all for $20 a day, and guaranteed they would catch fish. Cost at the state operated Kenlake Hotel was only $25 a day for food and lodging for the entire family. 'One day we went crappie fishing and took 30 in a couple of lours on minnows in 12 feet of water," Dr. Lyon added. "Y o u would think it was spring at Ken- :ucky Lake the way the fish are biting." Overnight Fishing Trip An overnight fishing trip last week to waters on the Alton-Wood River Sportsmen's Club grounds near Pleasant Hill was enjoyed by :ive fathers and sons ranging in ages from eight to 12 years. Trot- ine fishing was the most' productive but was slow. Hand line ishing was poor. Trotlines were set out late in :he afternoon baited with pork iver and Wheaties doughbait. The boys and their fathers ran the ines up to midnight and each time took off a few catfish. No edible turbles were landed al- .hough many bit on the trotline. A Rube Goldberg invention tur- ,le trap conceived by Wade Ger;en of Wood River, failed to produce a single turtle. He used a lew wire trash burner floated vith an innertube upon which a balanced board led over the top of the wire basket. It was ballet but the turtles didn't try it. The group included Gergen's two sons, Bobby and Paul, John Hcintz, and sons, John and Joe Beacon Street, Bud Leoiwrd anc son, Terry, Grovelin St. and neph ew, Ronnie Archer, Rosewoot Heights, Hiirold Leonard and son Harold Jr., Linden Street, this writer and son, Harold Jr. Won Fishing Award William Oram, Bethalto, ha been named Master Angler of thi Province of Manitoba, Canada.

Baseball Part Of Japanese Way of Life TOKYO (AP)-There's a stor> about a young-Japanese who wen lo the United States and was takei to a baseball park. "Why," he exclaimed, "they've copied tlie game from tlie Japa nese." His observation was an accu rate indication of how basebal has become a part of Japanese life in the 90 years since it was introduced to this country — by Americans. And today American ball players are playing importan roles in the sport in this baseball happy land. This season there are 25, in eluding five Japanese-Americans They generally draw salaries sev eral times above what they woul get in the States. The Americans who play bal here come to a country that i wildly enthusiastic about the game, to put it mildly. Kids and grownups swarm va cant lots on the four islands o Japan practically the year rounc with makeshift diamonds, gloves and bats. On the professional level, two six-team leagues — Centra and Pacific—rake in more money than any other entertainment. A crowd of 40,000 packing a stadium on a normal weekday is no rari ty. Last year, the two leagues drew a total of 9,600,286. Millions more followed the game via teievisioi and radio. Despite criticism from some Japanese fans and players, club owners still are trying to get more foreign players to Japan. They claim it is more profitable to con tract Americans with known rec ords than sign high school kids with unknown futures.

Politician HasBigHand In Title Bout By KENNETH WHITING Associated Press Staff Writer LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria's pugilistic politician was faced with two problems today in connection with Saturday's title fight between middleweight champion Dick Tiger of Nigeria and Gene Fullmer of West Jordan, Utah. He plans to solve them by: 1, Finding a new rain doctor, 2. Threatening this country's Boxing Board of Control with dismissal. Chief Jodeph Modupe Johnson, 51-year-old Cabinet minister with the labor and sports portfolios, announced Monday tiiat a "rain doctor" would be hired to see no showers dampened Liberty Stadium at nearby Badan during the fight. Johnson declined to name tlie rain doctor, but said today: '\Ve will have to hire another rain doctor in Ibadan so there will be no jealousy. My rain doctor is coming from Lagos and I want no rivalry." Rain doctor or no rain doctor, Lagos was drenched again Wednesday with three hours of heavy tropical rain, Jolinson's other problem arose when the boxing board refused him a license to fight a preliminary bout on the Tiger-Fullmer card. The 6-foot-2, 220-pound official startled the sports world a, few weeks ago by challenging Jack Toller, a retired professional heavyweight from Ghana, to a Tour-round match to prove "a man is not finished when he passes 50," : Johnson's wife reacted with the statement; "He is mad." And the boxing board reacted by declining to sanction the fight. Ghana's boxing control oommlu- sjon refused the Jfcensd for Toiler, who also is more than 50, but Johnson says his opponent IB due icre from Accra today. "TJjo ward has thwarted me so for but If. they continue to Interfere I shall dissolve them and appoint a caretaker committee," The battling Cabinet minister says he has been keeping trim by early .morning \vortauls and exeiv case in Ills office. 4 K Stanford beats California this il Uiejr football rivalry will l»e Ued. with 28 victories e a$, Tf« games were ties,
