Without even getting a toe tip into the political field, we Venture to say that a couple of good Conservation Commission members are leaving that body. They are Paul Olson of Madison and John Lynch of Gordon. Through the past few years we have had occasion to see them in action and hear their thinking in the field of conservation. Tliey had some sound thinking and a good outlook on preserving what is preservable of outdoor Wisconsin for another generation or so. This not to slight the gentlemen who will replace them, Art MacArthur o Janesville and Dan Tyler of Phillips. Of Tyler we have heard nothing; the Janesville xnink raiser has had a term on the commission before of which many speak highly. Since appointments to the commission are political, of course, there are two sides to the matter . . . that of the ins and that of the outs. No one is irreplaceable and the Conunission will go on without Olson and Lynch. But we cannot help but wish them well as they ended their six year terms at the Conunission meeting in Rice Lake last Thursday ' with a farewell dinner. * * • One must add to the bizarre happenings at ill-starred Bong Base the recent "skirmish" between Illinois Marine reservists and two outlaws who said they were "hunting raccoon." The Marine reserves staging night attacks with blank ammo suddenly found live rounds going zap and ping around them. When they tracked down the source of the real McCoy rifle work and held the two for county lawmen, they found high powered rifles and other items of warfare in their possession. We have often thought that a mixup in dates might someday bring a flock of parachuting reservists down smack in the rriiddle of a field dog trial and we hoped to be on hand to see what points the judges would take off for unforeseen hazards of the field such as parachuting soldiers. But two-man attacks on Marine reservists in the wee hours of the morning, truly, the unexpected must be expected at Bong. Any hunters out there this fall who find rice growing in the flooded marshes had better take off—the Viet Cong may have moved in. * * * Now that warm weather is with us, much ado will be made about early morning and late evening fishing. Weekly fishing reports of the wardens often suggest that one species or another is hitting good on a lake for evening or early morning fishermen. This must be considered if one is to increase their chances of success ... as a usual rule. But what of the vacationing angler who ; would like to escape the clutches of racketing alarm clocks for a few weeks and arise late and still fish? Again, as a general rule, he is not going to have the success on walleye or bass or northern that the near-and- after dark angler will have. Fish are too much like human beings. They make every _effort to avoid the heat of .'the day and (walleye in particular) the bright light of the mid day. Even the bigmouth bass will glide out into deep water weed beds if it gets too warm in the shallows i under his favorite bed of lily pads. Come evening he • will move back into the shallows and prowl for ; small minnows and other main dishes on, his menu. One can still fish for, and catch, walleye, bass and tiorthern of a mid day, however. It will be a little more difficult. Say you are using a medium running plug for bass and your quarry is in 15 to 30 feet of water. A surface plug is useless, but any plug that will sink ' can be fished through al: most any depth of water. Put it out and don't close . the bail on the reel, instead ; let the plug sink for the ; length of time you think it ' will take to go down to the depth you desire. If you snag on bottom "weeds, try beginning a retrieve a little sooner, to bring the4)lug just over tl^ top of unn the weedbeds. A deep diving plug, jigs, or a bottom bumper will get down quicker, experimenting will soon tell you how deep and how fast. Some anglers are taking walleye and lake trout in 60 to 80 feet of water in Big Green Lake on jigs. The panfish addict will also find his prey in deeper water during warm sunny days. Here, too the fishing is more difficult but still entirely possible. Actually, the prettiest and most comfortable hours of the days for summer fishing are dawn and after dusk, particularly the fonner. Even for a confirmed pillow pounder like this operator, there is nothing like the freshness of dawn over a lake or stream. Everything seems so new, the colors so clear, the air so fresh it might have just been created for your nostrils alone. Dawn is the hour of promise. Yesterday might have been the ail-American mess ... . this new day holds prtmiise of being the best ever. It is an hour of beginnings and new adventure. It is such a pity relatively few people see it. * * * Now vacation time approaches and we are off to our mountains. Through them, actually at first to California and the Never-Never land of the City of the Angels. With duty calls on sons and brothers taken care of, there is high country to the far north in Oregon, Idaho and Montana, Tucked away with other items in the bargain basement—like back of the wagon will be a couple of rods, some of Jack Crawford's ittle jigs, a smattering of Gray Duns, Muddler Minnows and the most trusty (and least rusty) plugs and spoons. They must be put to use somewhere in the next three weeks and 6,000 miles. —Journal-Times Photo 'EAGLE' SCOUT — Larry Geibel, 10, rural Union Grove, didn't have to go to northern Wisconsin to hook onto this 37-inch, 12-pound northern. He went only as far as Eagle Lake. The fish hit his plug early in the evening in about two feet of water at the northwest corner of the lake. Sunday, July 18, 1965 RACINE SUNDAY BULLETIN 50 Burleson Teaihes, Is Taught In Sweden STOCKHOLM — m —Dy rol Burleson, one of the United States' top milers, is spending a busy six months m Sweden—teaching and be- mg taught, running, and working at his profession. The 25-year-old University of Oregon alumnus came here in February with his wife and CARMEL, Calif. — (/P) — The tennis world knew Helen Wills as "Little Miss Poker Face," eight times Wimbledon singles champion and a player with intense competitive drive. Fish Poisoning Grave Problem RICE LAKE—Incomplete sampling of public waters shows Wisconsin has a "grave" fish poisoning situation, the State Conservation Commission was told last week. The observation was made by Dr. Edward Schneberger, supervisor of the Conservation Department's research and planning division. He heads a project seeking to determine if fish life is being harmed by use of poisons on farm lands, orchards, and in other insect disposal operations. Schneberger said the sampling project was about three- fourths completed and added that no formal conclusions will be made until the survey is finished. Commissioner Paul Olson of Madison, who has been a leader in attempts to obtain regulations for materials used to kill insect pests, urged the commission to continue state efforts for stringent controls. "It's a serious problem deserving special concern and efforts should be made to use other products that will not be harmful to wildlife," he said. The commission approved the issuance of three experimental permits to commercial fishermen for taking walleyes qut of the western part of Lake Superior. The fishing will be part of a project to determine if commercial fishing would be harmful to the lake's walleye population. Sportsmen's groups have objected to taking the fish commercially. Talbert Finds Few NFL Terrors THOUSAND OAKS, Calif.— (/P) — The National Football League shouldn't hold too many terrors for Don Talbert of the Dallas Cowboys. The former University of Texas line star rejoined the Cowboys at their summer training camp here after serving eight months with the U. S. Army in Viet Nam. "I'm the happiest guy in the world," said the 6-5, 245- pound tackle. As a lieutenant, Talbert commanded a military police platoon in Saigon. The duty consisted of furnishing protection for American installation at hospitals, the dock area and town p^^Jrol. That was a generation ago and, today, as Mrs. Aiden Roark, wife of the famed nine-goal international polo player and sportsman, she still plays competent tennis several times a week for sheer love of the game. It has been 20 years since she has played competitive tennis, and you have to go far back to a fantastic 10-year era starting in the mid-1920s to recall Helen's great record, but her concept of what it takes to win big time tournaments is as firm now as then. "I think one of the secrets of success in tournament play is to concentrate," she said. "If the mind begins to wander or you get upset, you cannot win. I found that a lot of conversation before a match just ruined you. So before a match I always was quiet, stayed in my room and avoided rushing around." Poetic Name She regards the way she got her nickname as an amusing oddity. There was a poet named Arthur Guiterman who wrote some light verse about Helen, calling her "Little Miss Poker Face," and she said "That was how it started . . . the name stuck." The finest thing about tennis, she believes, is that it is a game "open to everyone which can be played indefinitely. The thing about it is you must be a natural born player, practice and learn to concentrate to earn your right to play in places like Forest Hills and Wimbledon," Helen emphasized. " Growing up in Berkeley, Calif., the daughter of Dr. C. A. Wills, Helen started learning the game at the Berkeley Tennis Club. Playing in junior tournaments, she fast gained such class that she was invited to Forest Hills to play in the National Junior Championships at 15. Runner-up at 16 When she was only 16, she was runner-up in the National Women's Singles at Forest Hills and, at 17, won the singles championship there in competition against America's finest women players. In 1924 she won the only title she holds to this day— the Olympic Games singles— that being the only time in Olympics history tennis was included. The unique tournament was held at Colombes, outside Paris. "I guess people would be surprised to know that tennis ever was played as an Olympic sport, because it never has been since then," she said. The year after she won her fourth Forest Hills title, she was invited to play in England, starting her amazing string of Wimbledon victories which ranked her as one of the finest women champions the game has ever produced. Great Players Names, dates and individual matches have faded into time now, although she remembers some of the greats like England's Kathleen Mc- Kanes and Lili de Alvarez of Spain. "The finest player I ever met was France's Suzanne Lenglen, who beat me once in South France," she recalled. "I was 18 then and just arriving at the peak of my game." Now, Helen has found a variety of interests to supplement her leisurely tennis, playing about every otl^^r day at the Beach Club in nearby Pebble Beach, where pro Don Leary will tell you, "She was the world's greatest." While Roark, who has substituted the raising and training of championship English Springers for polo, and acts as a racing official at Golden Gate Fields, Monmouth Park and other tracks, Helen has become active in Republican Party affairs, oil painting and caring for their relatively new home in the Carmel Valley, just outside this quaint coastal town. Some Gardening I'm just getting used to living in our new place," she said. She does some gardening but "not very strenuous, though." The Roarks moved here 1 14 years ago after living 20 years in the Pacific Palisades section of Los Angeles and, during the war years, at Ft. Riley, Kan., where he was an instructor at the now defunct Calvary School. "From the time I was 15 until I was 25, I played tennis very intensively," Helen said. Part of that time she was attending the University of California in the class of 1927. "There is no excuse for people giving up school to play tennis. It is a mistake," she added. The last competitive tennis she played was at Ojai, Calif., about 20 years ago, when she and her partner' won the mixed doubles, so she is not inclined to compare topflight tennis in her peak era with today. Break Ground for Belmont NEW YORK—(/?>)—Ground will be broken Tuesday for the new Belmont Park which will cost close to $31 million and be ready for occupancy by the spring of 1968. The new stands replace the ones constructed in 1905 and demolished the summer of 1963 after they had been declared unsafe. Belmont dates have been raced since then at Aqueduct, a $33 million Taj Mahal of the turf. The New York Racing Association operates both tracks as well as upstate Saratoga. NYRA officials say the cost of constructing the new Belmont stands, access roads, landscaping, parking will cost $30,750,000. The structure will be 1,260 feet long, 270 feet deep and the roof will be 82 feet above the standing ramp. There will be approximately 24,500 seats under cover facing the track. Their view will be unobstructed. Included in this number are approximately 1,400 Turf Terrace seats in an enclosed dining area on the upper floor of the clubhouse. There will be two other dining areas overlooking the saddling paddock. Select Four from Arizona 2-year-old daughter, primarily to impart his training and competing styles to young Swedish runners.

The team was chosen by a vote of 108 major league scouts. Outfielder Rick Monday of Arizona State was named the baseball newspaper's collegiate player of the year. Monday has signed a contract for a reported $104,000 with the Kansas City- Athletics. ' Other selections were second baseman Luis Lagunas and third baseman Sal Bando, both of Arizona State; shortstop Eddie Leion of Arizona University. First baseman Ernie Chonko nad pitcher Steve Arlin, both of Ohio State; pitcher Ken Holtzman of Illinois; catcher John Olerud of Washington State; and outfielders Billy Wolff of Cincinnati University and Jim Dix of St. Louis University. Tulsa Accepted in Grid League TULSA, Okla. —i/P)— The! professional Continental; Football League accepted the Tulsa Wildcatters, a team to be formed under the guidance of Sammy Baugh, as its 11th member. Tommy Bell, general counsel for the new league, said Tulsa would make its debut as a paying member in the 1966 season. The CFL probably will admit a 12th member by next fall, Bell said. Bell announced acceptance of the Tulsa team after inspecting Skelly Stadium, home field of the University of Tulsa football team and the proposed home of the wildcatters. The stadium is being enlarged to 40,000 seats. terspersing the long run with 40 fast 100-meter dashes. "But I don't go above nine- tenths of top speed," he says. "And I never have hurt myself by overtraining." There was spirited competition for Burleson's services by various track clubs before he was landed by Frederikshof, whose president happens to work at the U.S. embassy. He started his Swedish sojourn with a trip to the famed training center at Valada. There he trained in the snow and got some conditioning tips from a renowned coach, Goeast Olander. Started with Win Burleson began competition with a 1,500-meter victory against the nation's top middle distance men, quickly became the leading attraction on Sweden's track circuit, and has run in other Scandinavian countries. Burleson has told his^ students that icy roads and snow are as satisfactory as any other training terrain — emphasizing that the important factor is the diligence and effort they put into their training. The American and his family have settled comfortably into suburban Stockholm life. He has overcome the language barrier with a crash course in Swedish, plus daily lessons. Burleson likes Swedish smorgasbord, but makes no secret of the fact he hasn't gone entirely native—he still prefers his wife's American - style cooking. WANTED! MEN-WOMEN from nces 18 and over.
