Aubrey Shepherd Ecology Problems A Growing Concern , f x*/\ ' j-T ' j The Eco-library -- really only a small section of the Fayetteville Public Library but potentially a valuable asret to Fayetteville and surrounding areas -- needs a filing cabinet in which to store its materials. A letter to the editor of the TIMES of last Monday explained the purposes of the Eco-library. Contributions of money or ecology materials are welcome and should be left at the Fayetteville Public Library. At present no firm limits have been placed on the types of materials which may be placed in the collection. Books, clippings from magazines and newspapers, personal essays, photographs of outdoor scenes or of examples of local pollution or environmental degradation -these are a few types of things which one might offer to share with the citizens of our area through a donation to the Eco-library. A film depicting a viable alternative to the dumping of sewage in streams was shown several times last week in Fayetteville. Supplied by researchers at the University of Oklahoma, the film explained a method of spraying purified but still rich waste water -- which has been through secondary treatment -- on fields for a combination of irrigation and fertilization. The film seemed convincing. Pictured fields seemed to prosper under such treatment. Spread thinly in such a way, waste water does not pollute either streams or ground water. Not only waste water but the sludge -- a by-product of secondary sewage treatment -- may be.used for fertilizer, although according to the film it is not as rich in nitrogen as the water. Nitrogen-rich water is excellent fertilizer on fields, but when it is poured into streams and lakes it causes excessive growth of algae and other plant life, eventually cutting off the supply of oxygen to the aquatic animals and so eliminating fish from the lake or stream. Swimming and boating become unpleasant and finally impossible in waterways afflicted with too much nitrogen. Ben Johnson IV of Fayetteville points out that such a method of disposing of water and solid wastes from area sewage treatment plants might be an excellent alternative to the proposed dumping of such wastes in the Illinois River. A- system of irrigation has also been proposed for Washington County, and it would appear that sewage treatment and irrigation proposals could be combined into a plan to benefit everyone concerned. By selling the waste water to members of an irrigation cooperative much of the cost of the treatment system could be defrayed. Why should human beings be the only creatures on earth to dump their waste materials into their drinking water? The Ecoalition News, published by the Society for Environmental Stabilization, needs a volunteer, unpaid but dedicated managing editor. Serving the membership of seven ecology-oriented organizations, The News is a small monthly publication which treats a wide variety of subjects. Because it does not sell advertising space, the Ecoalition Neios depends on contributions of money and materials from members of the organizations which form the Ecoalition -- Sierra Club; Ozark Food Co-op; Zero Population Growth; Natural Food Associates; Ozark Society, U of A Chapter; Ozark Society, Highlands Chapter.'and the Society for Environmental Stabilization. Persons interested in the Ecoalition News may get further information from Barry Weaver, Joel Davidson, Kimberley Smith or Suzanne MacRae. Tournament Announced The Bassmasters of Johnson County, Arkansas, have announced the Third Annual Elberta Open Regional Bass Tournament to be held on Lake Dardanelle near Clarksville, on June 30, 1974. This tournament's entrance fee is thirty dollars or twenty-five dollars if paid before midnight on Friday June 28, 1974. Eighty percent of the total money collected is supposed to be paid as prize money, including 30 percent to the champion, 25 percent to the runner-up, 20 percent for third, 15 for fourth and 10 percent for fifth. Those who finish sixth through 17th are to receive prizes consisting of various items worth up to 30 dollars. The person who catches the largest bass will receive an Ambassaduer 5000 casting reel. The merchandise will be donated by establishments in the Clarksville area. Apparently, fishermen in the Fayetteville-Springdale area will not have to go all the way to Rogers to get their bass mounted. Steve Grissom, formerly of Steve's Taxidermy of Little Rock, has begun to mount fish in Fayetteville. Steve says that he studied under Gerald Clowers of North Little Rock and that he has mounted fish and game for many Arkansans. Specializing in mounting bass, Steve practically guarantees to finish a job in three weeks. Steve hopes to offer a full line of taxidermy services in the future. He may be reached at 442-8660 in Fayetteville. Maybe Steve can help to fill the need for a local taxidermist created when Earl Dove moved away. Fishing clubs are myriad these days. There are B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsman Society), P.S.I. (Project Sports), B.C.A. (Bass Casters Association), and many other national groups. The three named have large professional bass tournaments. Now a new organization is being advertised for fishermen. Called Championship Fishing Club, the new entry on the fishing market is led by Virgil Ward and speaks of fishing tournaments for several categories of fishermen, not for bass anglers alone. This sounds like a good idea. Unfortunately, most enthusiasts cannot belong to all the eligible and worthy outdoor organizations now operating. But such groups seem unlikely to decrease in popularity for some time to come. Not so long ago fishermen were a lonely breed of men, staying apart from ordinary mortals and seldom known as joiners. But times are changing and some of the best fishermen are joining the professional ranks. Many stay apart even today, possibly feeling that professionalism is bad for a sport. And certainly the huge bass boats and ohter accouterments of professional fishermen seem garish at times. But the tournaments have encouraged the development 01 many boating safety features as well as improved equipment for the actual pursuit of fish. It would seem possible for a person to retain his integrity anc spend a lot of time alone in the outdoors while maintaining a membership in one or more of the fishing clubs. «B Jlorfttoegt SECTION 6 FAYETTWIIU, ARKANSAS, SUNDAY, JUNE 23, 1974 Professional Baseball By ne Associated Press National League East W L Pel.

Ohio (A?) -- Jerry IcGee matched par 35 on the root nine and took a two-stroke ad midway through the rain- elayed third round of the .70,000 American Golf Classic aturday. McGee, a non-winner in ser- n .years on the pro tour who ot into this select, invitational eld through a sponsors' ex- eption. had a 45-hole total of 71, foun-under-par on the wet nd soggy, 7,180-yard Firestone ountry Club course. McGee. from East Palestine, hio, held a two-stroke advan- arge over Ray Floyd, Jim Col- bert, Dwight Neil and veteran Gay Brewer with nine holes to go in the third round. They had 45-hole totals of 173. Floyd led the first round and shared the second round lead with McGee, but bogeyed the second and third holes and made the turn in 37, 529-over- par. Colbert was out in 36, Nevil in 35 and Brewer in 34. Newly-crowned U.S. O p e n champion Hale Irwin finished before a heavy thunderstorm hit the course, forced a 37-minute delay and left the long layout wet, heavy a n d playing even longer than usual. He has a 72 for 217. Arnold Palmer took a 73 for 216. Jack Nicklaus. Lee Trevino, Gary Player and Johnny Miller are not competing. "I don't think you have to have Nicklaus or Trevino to have a good tournament any more." Fezler said. "There are so many good young players now it's just incredible. You've got good young players that are playing as good as they Ere." Fezler, playing well in front of McGee and Floyd, was two s h o t s back when Saturday's round began under gloomy, gray, threatening skies. He threw a three iron to within three feet of the cup for a birdie on the sixth, but bogeyed the eighth from a bunker to go back to even par for the round. He got his drive in a fairway bunker when the rains held up play and he was hoping the whole round would be washed out. When play resumed he made the bogey he anticipated--then be;an his "charge. He ran home a 20-foot birdie putt on the 10th hole and scored from 15'feet on the next hole. He bogeyed the 13th from the rough but got the stroke back with a 10-12 feet birdie putt on the 14th. the key to his round and the one that got him the lead -- was a delicate little pitching wedge third shot over the pond that guards the front of the 615-yard 16th hole. He. put it about two inches out, t a p p e d in and -- when McGee continued to have his problems--had the lead. "I played so good for the first 12 holes," McGee said, "a n d then my back started tightening up when the weather got cold. "But tomorrow's a n o t h e r day. I'm still in good position. I can still win the golf tournament." 4aynie, Garner Close Behind Palmer Holds LPGA Lead SUTTON. Mass.

Howeer, she ebounded with a birdie 4 on he next green to finish with a 6 and a 216 total. JoAnne Carner. five-time ,S. Amateur champion, had a wo-over-par 75 and was alone n third place with a cne-under- ar total of 218 with the final ound scheduled for Sunday.

Muxle Breer had a 75 for 220. Then, another stroke back, came all-time great Kathy Whitworth, who had a 73, local faorite Jane Blalock, who carded a 71 and Jerilyn Britz, who had a 74. There was a seven-way tie at 223. Miss Haynie had just finished her roundf. tied with a four-under-par tournament score when she heard that Miss Palmer had taken her double bogey on the 17th green. "I wanted to make sure I got the ball over the water, and I hit it over the green into water in the back," Miss P a l m e r said. "I had fo t a k e a drop and was fortunate to get down in six. I also missed quite a few putts and a couple of fairways. "I didn't have very good control of my game. My concentration was not as good as in the second round." Miss Haynie. who won t h e LPGA championship in 1965, had two bogeys which .she offset with a pair of birdies on route to lier par 73 round on the sun-baked 6,130-yard course. "I had an awful lot of opportunities." she said. "1 missed a lot of 12 to 15-foot putts. I was tired out there. All of us are beginning to wear down a bit. and tomorrow's f i n a l round will be a test of stamina as well as golf.' Mrs. Carner moved into a temporary tie for the lead by going four-under for the tournament. However, she took three straight bogeys on the 14th, 15th and 16th greens to fall behind. in the wake of Miss Palmer's sensation 66 Friday, the golfers had trouble as the sun came out in the third round afSer heavy rain soaked the course. The top score of the day was 71, shot by Mrs. Young, a former U.S. Open champion, Miss Blalock and Gerda Boykin. · The only other sub-par rounds of 72 were by Roberta Albers and Kathy Martin. Equalling par with Miss Haynie and Miss Whitworth were Japanese champion Chako Matsui and Lesley Holbert. n Wimbledon Tuneup Tournament Smith Wins Crown NOTTINGHAM, E n g l a n d AP) -^ Big Stan Smith of the Inited Stales, fighting his way Dack to form, beat Soviet ace Ale.x Metreveli 6-3, 1-G, 6-3 Saturday and won the $100,000 lohn Player Tennis Tournament.

(AP) -- Th» board of trustees of the Ameri:an Football Coaches Associ- atio recommended Saturday retention of the present NCAA reguations on spring football practice. Some college athletic administrators are recommending a shorter period than the present 10 off-seasoti practice days. Board president Boh Blackman of Illinois said ho favors Ihe present rule.
