Of these causes, the tapeworm, which causes sterility in the fish; destruction of habitat by carp, or the effects of over-fertilization of the water seem to be the only ones that would apply at Browns Lake. the history, ecology and management of largemouth bass. It has had a reputation as a With the icebox door wide open from Canada and Alabama and natives everywhere huddled near the hearth, the first sign of spring comes nevertheless. New York's Boat Show is in full swing. March 2-11 the Chicago Boat Show will be staged and, mixed in with these dates will be the sports- shows in Chicago and Milwaukee. At these the rod and reel fisherman will once more emerge from his den and drool over new gear and gadgets. Outboard Boating Club of America says $7 billion was spent on recreational boating last year. This is big business when one considers that this is a recreation, not a vital necessity like meat and potatoes or housing. Boats are getting bigger, more fancy, more loaded with gadgets such as pushbutton shifts. However the manufacturers leave no segment of the field untouched. They know a lot of individuals have neither the money nor inclination toward the cruiser comfort class. There are lots of anglers in the market for small boats, boats that can be taken out, dunked in the water and fished from without investments in trailers, hoists or three strong men to muscle their craft in and out of the water. And the manufacturers are turning out small, light craft to attract this group. One Washington state manufacturer has a takedown craft that will fit in a car trunk, go together in three minutes (he says) and will take a small outboard motor. It might not be a boat to buck Lake Michigan, or to take on Winnebago in a windstorm. But for small waters, and shallow streams it i.s just the thing. There could also be much interest in craft of thi.s: support men on foot. Men type from some whf) look for in autos may be a different a .second boat fcjr the family breed of cat, however.

The glaciers stopped and retreated before reaching that area. As a result, lakes in this unglaciated area are about as rare as Colorado blue spruce in the Sahara. The area is hilly, great rolling hills with deep, flood-plagued valleys that give way near lee country and eroded limestone bluffs. Has Dual Purpose Creation of permanent lakes in these areas has a twofold aim. One, it will provide lake recreation in an area where citizens are hungry for it. And, second, it will be part of a flood control program in the area, holding back some of the rains that now hit the valleys in sudden devastating torrents.

Roberts to Find Yanks Team Which Will Help WILMINGTON, Del. —iJP) —"Being with the Yankees can help any pitcher," says New York right-hander Bob Turley. The only proviso, adds Turley, is that he must have the physical ability. Turley didn't have it last year and is the first to admit it. Turley likes the chances of Robin Roberts making the Yankees. It will mark the first time for the ex-Phillie star with a hitting club. The Yankees purchased on a Yankee uniform makes a State Park at $32,000 and another near Barneveld at $12,000. Federal Funds Help Governor Nelson said that in sunder the national small wa- "Itershed act, the federal government will pay for flood- control dams on approved projects and will also pay 50 per cent of the cost of an im> proved dam that will create a permanent body of recreational water. The governor said thfe state's new resource development law will enable the state to pay the other 50 per cent of the costs of improve^ dams so that creation of these permanent lakes will cost local 'government's little more than the basic f 1 0 0 d-control expenses to which they are already committed. Roberts from Philadelphia aft- 1 covered it's easier to pitch for er the 1961 season. The veteran right hander, who won 234 games in his 14 years with the Phillies, found the going tough with the weak- hitting tail-enders and slumped to a I-IO record last season. Easier Pitching "It's easier pitching with our club," Turley explained while looking over the Brookhaven Bowling Lanes he and some partners have taken over. "They go out and get you runs. And when you're in trouble, the infield will suck up a ground ball for the double play and you're in charge again. Robbie will find the pressure lighter than it was with the Phillies. He has people to help him. If he pitches six good innings we can pick him up with a good reliever, save a win for him. "With the Phillies, chances are a pitcher would pitch six good ones and have to take a clobbering in the seventh and lose because nobody could do the consistent relief job. Fine Reliever "I think Roberts vdll get every chance. With his control I think he 'd make a fine long reliever. With our defense, our support, our big ball park, he can make two, three mistakes a game and survive 'em. With the Phillies you make one mistake and lose. A Yankee pitcher can give up several runs and our power will get him seven." Asked about the belief in some comers that Just putting player superior, Turley said: "It takes more than that. We've had new players come in with that idea and they didn't last long. You have to absorb the Yankee spirit. You must play to win. There's no fooling around. If you don't fit in, you go."

Starters should run a lot and middle relievers run not quite so much and short relievers. who are on call every day should run even less. The Stengel system threw you off stride.
