Page B-2 THE NEWS, Frederick, Maryland Friday, Joe S, 1071 Tin DRUMMING 106 JM GILFORD COIN' FISHIN* is a fine way for the smallfry in your life to let off a little steam. And it's a happy fact that you don't have to go very far around here to find the kind of angling most youngsters take a liking to. That might surprise you - it does a lot of dads who've asked me for a quick rundown on some places they could take their kids fishing - but look at what's close at hand. If you live here in the City and have only an hour or so to spend, you can make the most of the time by taking your gang to Culler Lake. Sure enough, the water there doesn't look very inviting at times, and the Lake would produce more fish if some standard fish management practices were applied. But all the same, there are enough bluegills, largemouth bass, carp and catfish in Culler Lake to fire up a young fishermen's appetite for angling. And don't sell the place short, either, because nearly every year a City smallfry derricks a big largemouth out of the lake. Out of town but still close by, there are five other community ponds in Frederick County that you can try - all an acre or more in size and open to public fishing. Frank Bentz Pond at Thurmont still may have a few trout in it this time of year, but little else, so it's the last on the list as a likely spot for young fishermen. * * * GAMBRILL'S POND near the entrance of the State Park, Libertytown Pond just off Maryland Route 75 at Libertytown, Brunswick Pond at Rosemont and Urbana Lake near Urbana have bluegills and largemouth bass. In addition, some of these ponds house crappie and catfish and Urbana Lake still should be holding some of the trout which were stocked there this spring. Over in Carroll County, youngsters can try their luck at the community pond in Westminster and North Carroll Pond in Manchester. In Montgomery County, Kings Pond at Clarksburg, which the state stocks with bass and panfish, also is open to public fishing. But these nine public ponds are just a convenient starter. Not as well known are close to 1400 private farm ponds scattered throughout Frederick, Carroll and Montgomery Counties. And many of these are seldom hit, even though the owners in most cases will allow those who ask to fish them. Bass and bluegills are the usual fare in these ponds. And while the bass may reach better than respectable size, it's the horde of bluegills that can be depended on to keep a youngster's interest high. So between the community ponds and the great number of private farm ponds close by, there are plenty of places to take a youngster fishing this summer. · * * * PENNSYLVANIA HUNTING SEASONS and bag limits Fishing For The Small Fry for 1970 - 71 were set by the state's' game commissioners early this week. One of the big changes in this year's regulations for the Keystone State is the deletion of a bear season this fall. It marks the first time in 36 years that bruins ha ve been of f the list of legal game. This year's small game regulations call for an early season for grouse and squirrel beginning on Saturday, October 17, with the regular small game season kicking off on Saturday, October 31. Daily bag limits and seasons for small game as listed by the Pennsylvania Game Commission round out like this: Squirrel - October 17 through November 28; December 26 through January 16; 6 daily. Grouse - October 17 through November 28; December 26 through January-16; 2 daily. Wild Turkey - (depending on county) October 31 through November 21 or October 31 through November 14; Spring gobbler season - May 8 through May 15, 1971; 1 per license season. Cottontail Rabbits - October 31 through November 28; December 26 through January 16; 4 daily. Snowshoe Rabbits - December 26 through January 2; 2 daily. Ring-necked Pheasant - October 31 through November 28; 2 daily. Bobwhite Quail - October 31 through November 28; 4 daily. Raccoon and Woodchuck - no closed season,* no bag limit. Archery season for deer is September 26 through October 30 and in some counties, December 26 through January 16. Pennsylvania's 1970 rifle season for buck will run November 30 through December 12. And the antlerless season will come on December 14 and 15 except in a few counties covered by special regulations. In case of bad weather, the commission may extend the doe season to include December 18 or 19 or possibly both dates. * * * BOAT RACING FANS will want to note these dates passed along by Buck Briscoe, Director of the St. Mary's County Economic Development Committee.

National League Roundup Osteen Stops Pirates, 5-0 By TOMSALAWNO Associated Press Sport* Writer The last three weeks have been happy ones for Claude Osteen, something less than hilarious for Tom Seaver and an absolute nightmare for Steve Blass. The three veteran hurlers worked Thursday night and each kept their streaks alive. Osteen, the stylish Los Angeles southpaw, copping his fifth consecutive triumph, a 5-0 masterpiece over Pittsburgh and Pirates starter Blass, who was losing his eighth game in a row. Meanwhile, Seever, the 1969 Cy Young Award winner, dropped his fourth straight, 3-1 to Atlanta. In the only other National League game scheduled, Houston romped over Montreal 8-0, sending the skidding Expos to their llth consecutive loss. Osteen, 8-4, tossed only 98 pitches and didn't go to a three- ball count during the entire game in limiting the hard-hit- Women Bowlers To Hold Meeting The Frederick Woman's Bowling Association will hold its annual meeting this Sunday afternoon at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church on West Seventh Street. Members of the bowling organization which numbers over 400 Frederick, area ladies are being urged by association officers to attend the important session called for 2 p.m. Included on the agenda will be the annual election of officers and delegates to the State and National meetings next spring; consideration of amendments to the constitution and assessment of all bowlers to help defray expenses of the state tournament awarded the local association next spring. The distaff organization was formed several years ago for the purpose of including in a central organization all qualified WIBC members in this area. The local group is a subsidiary to the Woman's International Bowling' Congress which is the parent body. A main purpose of the city association is to maintain and increase interest in tenpin bowling and to have and exercise a general care and supervision over all activities initiated by or conducted by the city association. The Frederick Woman's Bowling Association has conducted an annual city association tournament for three years and will host the popular 1971 Maryland State Woman's Bowling Association tournament. Current officers include President Miriam Oland; Vice Presidents Shirley McThenia and Mary Kelley, Secretary Rachel Standen and Treasurer Loretta Rapp; Sgt. at Arms Helen Wilhide; Members of the Board of Directors include Blanche Eyler, Dot Mooring, Mary Smith, Arlene Staley, Catherine Thrasher.

State Fishing Report The State Fishing Report is based on information furnished by the Department of Game and Inland Fish, Department of Chesapeake Bay Affairs and Fishing in Maryland magazine. Water, weather and fishing conditions and angler success are given for the week just ended in order to provide anglers with current information on fishing activities throughout the state. This report is NOT A FORECAST. * FRESH WATER REPORT * The Department of Game and Inland Fish reported that fishing success in Western Maryland waters slacked off some during the week. Although some pike were taken at Deep Creek Lake, catches of other species were light. Trout were taking artificial flies in the Savage River over the weekend. The MONOCACY RIVER was beginning to clear sdme by last week in the lower sections and smallmouth and panfish were moving in the upper stretches where the muddy water already ran off. Carp fishermen had been scoring well in the lower section with dough bait. The water level in the POTOMAC RIVER was near normal according to field reports. Small- mouth were hitting bait and arti- ficials in the Taylor's Landing Snyder's Landing area. Some catfish were being caught on worms and liver over most of the upper part of the Potomac; a 19 pound forktafl was caught at Edward's Ferry last Sunday by Franklin Stockman of Frederick. Small- mouth activity in the lower sections of the river were slow during the week. Fishing in all of the Baltimore City Reservoirs has slacked off. Most species are off the spawning beds and have moved into deeper water which is making fishing much harder. In the Susquehanna River, a few shad are still being taken around the Conowingo Dam and in Octoraro Creek, a seven pound white shad was weighed in from the Susquehanna during the close of the white shad run. Some large catfish and carp are now active in the Conowingo area. Blue gill fishing has been hot Junior League Braddock Heights 7-6-3 Myersville 10-5-1 Zerkel and Gross, Wisner; Clingan, Sheffler and Young HR Young (M).

Other species are slow in hitting, .although a few bass, rock and perch have been taken in the Southern Maryland rivers. On the EASTERN SHORE, fishing is reported as fair to poor this past week. Bass and crappie are the most frequent species being boated; most of them have been hitting either minnows or worms. The best spots to try currently are Leonard's Pond, Big Mill Pond, Williams Pond and Allen's Pond. * SALT WATER REPORT * At OCEAN CITY last weekend, high winds and rough seas handicapped the off shore and surf fishermen. Headboats continue to bring in huge catches of seabass and iautogs. Bridge and bay anglers are still getting blues but only the stout hearted are willing to stay out there till two or three in the morning waiting for the best tide. ' One of the largest blues ever taken in the Bay was registered at Paul's Tackle Shop, early Friday morning, ft was a 9 pound 2 oz. bluefish caught from the Ocean City bridge on a shiner. Rock, kingfish, seatrout and summer flounder are being caught in the bay and surf and tautogs from the Jetty. According to reports from the Department of Chesapeake Bay Affairs, striped bass weighing up to 25 pounds are being caught in widely scattered areas between the Gooses and Parker's Creek. On the piers and and jetties at Chesapeake Beach and North Beach bottom fishermen are hooking good numbers of Norfolk spot and white perch on bloodworms. Potomac River fishermen report good catches of white perch and spot at Ragged Point, Swan Point, Tall Timbers, Blackiston Island, the lower Wicomico River and from Cedar Point to Beacon Bar. White perch and spot are also providing good sport in West and South Rivers. A few pan size rock are being caught at Thomas Point. The Severn and Magothy Rivers are yielding good catches of white and yellow perch with a few spot mixed in. White perch are all over the Chester River. Pan size rock are plentiful at Love Point, Queenstown Creek and in Eastern Bay. Miles River fishermen are making fair catches of pan size stripers and white perch are abundant in the Wye River. Choptank River anglers are doing well at the Airplane Wreck, Diamonds and Todd's Point on stripers weighing up to six pounds.- At the Choptank Light, bottom fishermen have reported small black drum in the six to.10 pound class. Honga River and Fishing Bay crab bait fishermen are making good catches of rock and white perch. A few trout are being taken and white and yellow perch are plentiful throughout the lower Dorchester area. The Nanticoke River is a good bet for white perch. Rockfish, trout and white perch are adding spice to the Wicomico River fishing. Big channel bass, stripers weighing up to 11 pounds and trout in the two to three pound class are pleasing Tangier Sound, Bloodsworth Island and Holland Straits anglers.

"I really enjoyed it They were hitting grounders and that keeps ay teammates awake and everybody sharp." Osteen, who was 20-15 last year, started his streak on May 17 with a four-hit shutout over the San Francisco Giants. He has beaten Atlanta, San Fran. Cisco, St. Louis and now the Pirates in his string. Blass, a 16-10 hurler last season, sank to 2-8 and hasn't tasted victory since April 22-- seven weeks-- when the right-hander beat Houston 6-1 on a three hitter. The Dodgers reached the 28- year-old fast-bailer for only four hits in his five innings but he walked four and his ERA skied to 4.55. Seaver, the 25-7 glamor boy of the Mets, rolled to six straight victories this season-- 16 over two seasons- before dropping a 24 decision to Montreal. He them beat Philadelphia on a one-hitter on May 15 but hasn't won since. In the four losses, Seaver has only been supported by two runs and only gave the Braves five hits and all three runs while running his NL strikeout lead to 118, fanning four Atlanta hitters. "IPs not fun to go home and know you've lost four games in a row," said Seaver, now 7-5, with a fine 2.31 era. Seaver was reached for a run-scoring single by Orlando Cepeda, another tally came in on a passed ball and Rico Carty, the major leagues' top hitter at .435, slugged his 15th homer of the season. The Astros rode the six-hit pitching of Tom Griffin, who was backed by Doug Rader's first-inning grand slam homer and a two-run shot by Joe pepi- tone in the eighth.
