Joe Roddy and Ted Myers had l i m i t s of Crappie Saturday and Sunday. M a n y good crappie catches came in over the weekend. As of noon Wednesday, the w a t e r temperature was G8 degrees. Visibility is about 114 feel. J. and J. Sport Shop reports t h a t Bill Cook and Mike Shaw had a limit of blacks to 2\'i pounds. They had many whiter to three pounds in trie Clifty area. One man reported that he and a partner caught 12 bass between 8 and 12 p.m. using chartreuse spinner baits with a pork frog. Largest bass was 814 pounds. This man had taken o f f from work to go fishing and did not want his naine in the paper. A good many crappie reports are coming in. but few have the limit. Most are using minnows. The While River Bait Shop reports Chester Gayer of Gosben had four drum to eight pounds and two catfish, largest four pounds. The river was muddy en Wednesday. A fe'.. white bass are still being brought in on jigs and crawfish The Springdale Sport Shop r e p o r t e d Fred Whisenhunt caught six blacks to 4K pounds. Murray Ix;wis. Bob Carnes and their wives took sixtv crappie Sunday- G a r l a n d Vilfines took seven blacks to three pounds. The crappie came on jigs. Fred caught his bass on worms and Villines caught his on single spins. Mike Maxwell reports that he and Andy Lewis caught several blacks and whites near War fcagle Mill. Most were caught on chartreuse hellbenders and plastic worms. They found th.. water temporarily high enough for a bass boat to n a v i g a t e the river. But those trying to run a large boat up either War Kagle or the White River must expect d a m a g e to propellers and possl ble scratches on their hulls. While power is needed to fight the strong currents, speed is dangerous in the upper reaches of the lake. The high water continually washes logs and other debris downstream. According to Floy Scroggins, the wind has made things had this week. Fishing is a little bit slower than it was last year. Floy feels that the fuel crisis has cut down on the number of people from oilier states who are fishing Beaver. Fishing is f a i r to good on al species, says Floy. The crappie have spawned; females will be a little deeper now. They are riot in bunches as they were a week ago. Horseshoe Bent reports a lot of bass to 31i pounds on Rebels, Big 0 ant single spins. Guy lllian of Eureka Springs reporteel two blacks, four anc 4'/4 on Big 0. He brought these in to Starkey. L a r r y Evans had seven spotted bass to three pounds on a Rooster Tail. Slarkey reported a lot ol blacks taken on Big O's ant rebels. Rapalas were working last week, Floy said that the smaller blacks were coming in with some to five pounds. L J. Stouder from Burlington Kans.. had a five pounder on a Rebel and several Kcntuckies on a broken back Revel. A. K. Bundy from Browns ville. Tex., bad 10 whites to four pounds. F r a n k Westmoreland from Little Rock got .1 nine pound flathead on a minnow out of Starkey. Floy Scroggins said that many people who launch their boats from public areas fail to report their catches. She suggests that fishermen report all good catches to their favorite sportshpp or dock. The fishing report is not going to pinpoint your spot for the competition. Floy reports a !2'/2 pound striper taken on a small craw dad. Cbesler Gayer took the fish on a trotline. Unforlunalely for the trolliners, such catches are not good for records.

DON BUDGE "Grand Slam Winner" In PGA'S Colonial Event Hale Irwin Blisters Course FORT WORTH. Tex. (AP) -Every time I turned around lale was m a k i n g the flugstick quiver." said Hubert Green, l i n k i n g his head in disbelief. "1 think it was one of the f i n 'St rounds of golf I've ever een played." added Tom Weis- \oph in abashed a d m i r a t i o n . 'Had he pulled exceptionally veil, I think he could have shot 30." Such were the comments Thursday after Hale I r w i n scorched the windswept Colonial Country Club course with a "ive-under-par 65 and sei/.ed ;i -hree-stroke lead in the first -ound of the $250,000 Colonial National Open. Battling gusty winds and an o u t s t a n d i n g field, Irwin bagged -hree birdies on the f i n a l four :ioLcs and swept away from a cluster of challengers with a stunning 32-315--55 on the 35-35-70 Trinity River layout. "There was not very much I did poorly," admitted Irwin, a non-winner this year but 10th on the money winning list with more than $75.000. "I hit an abundance of gooti shots," he continued, "but 3 missed a lot of makeable putts." Then flashing a big g r i n , he confessed t h a t , "I'm extrcmelj happy with the way I played Rolling in birdie p u t t s of three, one, 35, 10, three and 25 feet. Irwin, who has the habit of playing t o u g h courses extremely well, struck a resound ing blow in his bid to capture the first designated tournament title in the history of pro golf. A bunker on the par - three. [ourih hole cost him his only bogey. Three strokes back with 68s vere Betty C a s p e r , Charles *oody, Bobby Nichols, Hubert Green, Larry Hinson and Bert Vancey, the latter with a sensational e a g l e on the par-four, They had a stroke advantage over another group at 69 t h a t .ncluded Orville Moody, Phil [lodgers, Butch Baird, Julius Moros, Bob Stanton and Frank Beard. W e i s k o p r, the defending champion w h o matched p a r and said that, "71) is not a bad score and we have a long way to go," was tied al that figure with Rod Curl. Larry Ziegler, Chuck Courtney, nave Stockton and Ben Crenshaw. Jack Nicklaus. one of the to compete here under the new, controversial setup, carded a 71 and said t h a t , "if I hadn'l made some good putts, 1 would have vaulted into the 85's." into the 80's." At that, he fared better than many of the other suerstars. Arnold Palmer and Gary Player had 74s, Lee Trevino posted a 72 and the current tour king pin, five - time winner Johnny Miller, limped in with a 78. "There's going to he some high scores out there this week," Trevino predicted. "It's going to be hard to make a lol of birdies in that wind." Ilinson was even more em phatic: "The g u y t h a t wins r irst prize this week is going to earn it all," he said. "I don't know what's blowing in here but it's got to be something." F.xcept for his one bogey, Ir 'in played flawlessly from tee o green, rifling magnificent ron shots n i n e times within 15 eet of the cup and lipping out everal birdie attempts. Weiskopf later revised his '60" figure, but said if Irwin ad pulled spectacularly he ould have whipped the '7,142- yard course in a record 62 on a day that "was about as tough as I ever played." So sharp was Irwin, Weiskopf conceded, that "he even looked ;ood teeing his ball up out here." Here art the top first round scores Thursday in the {250.000 Colonial National Open Golf Tournament on the 7.142-yard Base Steaters Trouble Bench. CINCINNATI (AP) -- The once-feared golden arm of Cincinnati catcher J o h n n y Bench is being tarnished "but there's nothing T can do about it," says baseball's premier receiver. While Reds opponents are suddenly swiping bases at an unprecedented pace, Bench bristles at the mention his defensive skills have eroded. The bazooka-like arm that once kept would-be base thieves at bay has been neutralized. How? "For one thing, everybody's loading up with speed now. And T don't think we emphasize pickoff plays t h a i much. The balk rule hasn't had Einytlnn; to do with it." said Bench as the Reds prepared to depart on a 10-gamc road trip west today. "I've really noticed it in the last three years. It used to he the Dodgers had two or three guys who would try to steal, Now they send everybody. It's adding a new dimension to the game. With the season little over a m o n t h old, opposing teams have successfully s t o l e n 18 bases in 2(3 attempts against the Reds. That's almost half the total allowed last year when Cincinnati managed to mow down only 30 of 72 base runners. In 1972. Bench and his backup allowed only 25 stolen bases in 60 attempts. In 1070, he turned in a sensa- t i o n a 1 performance that prompted ex-Dodger catcher Rube Walker to rave: "No doubt about it. he has the best arm in baseball, maybe the best ever." Bench out down 2S of the 59 base runners who test ed him. The 26-year-old Oklahoman denies he's lost any zing as a result of off-season chest sur gory of 1972. Manager Sparky Anderson supports Bench loudly. Even to Bench's recent revival with th b a t , Anderson predicted "Johnny will win the Most Val uable Player in 1D74."
