Following the showing of these films, John Marsh, professional sanitary engineer from Norman, Oklahoma, will a n s w e r questions on the economic feasibility and benefits of land a p p l i c a t i o n of effluent. "Waste Water Bonanza," a short general introduction to using treated waste water as a nutrient resource rather than as a surface water pollutant, is 25 minutes long. "The Living Filter," a short film on 10 years of research at Penn State University on the problems and benefits of using land application of treated affluent rather than discharging it into streams or rivers, is 15 minutes long. These films are of especial interest to persons interested in the future of the Illinois Kiver. Arkansas' portion of the Illinois River is not as beautiful as is the part in Oklahoma; which rivals Arkansas's Buffalo River in its purity and clarity. But with revised land use practices all up and down the Illinois' watershed, the Arkansas sections could be much nicer than they are now. BUFFALO RIVER The fishing reporter sam- - : "pled the Buffalo River's famed ' fisbing last week. Wading in the Ponca area, he came upon an amazing hole where smallmouth bass, green sunfish, and longear sunfish seemed to battle for the opportunity ' to strike his tiny jig with Mister Twister grum attached. Using the pig most of the time and a Hebel Wee R some of the time, the fishing reporter caught more than 125 sunfish and'small- .mouth bass in less than five hours. Fifty of the sunfish -including many small to medium sized longears, many large green sunfish, one huge rock bass and one 14 inch smallmouth bass -- were kept. choice question. Q: Mike Marshal' (a) did, to release most of the bass he catches, especially the comparatively rare and precious smallmouth bass found in the streams in Arkansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. But he uses an adaptation of the filleting technique to prepare small sunfish for the frying pan. To fillet a small sunfish -bluegill, redear, green sur,:ish (black perch or shade perch), rock bass (goggle eye), long- ear (pumpkinseed or red belly), warmouth (called goggle eye in Louisiana iwhere no rock bass are found), or any other -- a sharp knife is applied lo the side o f ' t h e fish at a point about where the rib cage reaches the skin and parallel to the backbone of the fish. - Taking care not to cut through the ribs and into the body cavity one then slices along the edge of the rib cage and up to the base of the dorsal fin. The edible portion of the fish is then easily removed from the skin,' without actually ' separating the skin from the fin. To fillet a bass the knife slices from immediately behind the head along the ribs and to the tail, without completely separating the skin from the tail. Then the knife slices the edible portion of the bass from the skin. An electric knive is especially useful for this purpose. For filleting tiny fish the electric knife is inefficient. WILDERNESS LANDS It is with great disappointment that we read of the apparent failure of Governor Bumpers' Wilderness, Land acquisition bill. Admittedly ... there are. other , pressing n e e d s in Arkansas -'especially important are the salary increases for school teachers and other state ' employes. However, many of the tourist and industry attracting resources of the state -- such as hardwood forests. clean water, quality hunting and fishing,.wilderness hiking and recreation areas. -- are increasingly threatened by uncontrolled' development. The original Bumpers proposal -- to provide $10 million for wilderness land acquisition .-- was barely adequate. The proposals rejected lately by the present legislature are minuscule by comparison. The legislature's failure to provide funds -- at a time (b) did not, pitch in the Los'An- geles Dodgers' 8-4 triumph over the Philadelphia Phillies Tuesday night. '· Even the · class dunce knows there's only one answer to that. Of course Marshall pitched ... for the 58th time this season. But don't get the idea the Yanks Now Producing Big Run Totals By THE ASSOCfATED PRESS Suddenly the runs are coming for the New York Yankees. The Yankees, who scored only 1 9 ' r u n s in 11 games a while ago, have erupted for 45 in their last five starts, including Tuesday night's 8-2 pounding of the Kansas ity Royals. Manager Bill Virdon said he doesn't know why, but added, "Whatever it is, I'd keep doing it. "But really, this is closer to what we should be doing," Virdon said. "They say everything evens up . . . I'd settle for leveling off--nine or 10 hits a game, plus some runs." Elsewhere in the American League, the Boston Red Sox nipped the Texas Hangers 2-1, the Milwaukee Brewers edged the Chicago White Sox 0-5, the Minnesota Twins trimmed the Detroit Tigers 3-2 in 11 innings, the Oakland A's blanked the Dodgers' relief ace is overworked. He had a day of rest," explained Manager Walter Alston. Elsewhere in the National League, the Cincinnati Reds oulslugged the Chicago Cubs 85, the Houston Astros beat the St. Louis Cardinals 5-2, the Montreal Expos edged the San Francisco Giants 5-4, the Pills- burgh Pirates" hipped the Atlanta Braves 5-4 and the San Diego Padres shaded the New York Mets 5-4. REDS 8, CUBS 5 The Reds smashed six home runs, including a three-run shot by George Foster in the sixth inning after five solo shots in the first three innings--Joe Morgan in the first, Tony Perez and Cesar Geronimo in the second and Dan Driessen and Johnny Bench in the third.

Sneed rates a favorite tag on the strength of his victory last week in the $125,000 Milwaukee Open, where he won easily with a 275 total, and Nevil on the strength of previous strong showings over the Crow Valley course.

Mr. Keaton, life-long resident of the Ponca area and present owner of property within the b o u n d s of the Buffalo National River Park, was on the river's bank enjoying the beauties - of the quiet forest and the sound of the gently flowing stream. Mr. Keaton is a close observer of nature who can move about in the woods without disturbing the wild things. Some one recently .asked the fishing reporter what he does with all the small sunfish he claims to catch. His answer was that he cleans them and uses them for food. Louisiana, where the pudgy piscatorialist grew up, small sunfish -- called bream or 'perch -- are gutted and scaled and fried. But this method of cleaning fish is messy, slow, and laborious. In recent years almost everyone has learned to fillet large members of the sunfish family -- bass and crappie. The fishing reporter prefers FISHING TOURNAMENT An October Lake Tenkiller Fishing Tournament, recently announced by North American Sports Services'has some unusual and attractive features. Bob Reed of West Fork, Ark., points out the relatively low entry fees and the four categories of fish -black bass, iwhite bass, crappie, and catfish -allowed in the competition. So far, however, N.A.S.S. has announced only the grand prize, a trophy reputed to be the world's.largest. Many who have fished in National bass tournaments -- w h e t h e r sponsored b y B.A.S.S., P.S.I., B.C.A. or some other organization .-have been frustrated by -the fact that only black bass count. Other excellent fishermen never compete in any fishing tournaments because they feel that catching black bass is not the only exciting type of fresh water fishing. The N.A.S.S. tourney will give such fishermen an opportunity to prove their skill in four different types of fishing. Dennis Blair with a radley. PIRATES 5, BRAVES 4 Manny Sanguillen's two-run double keyed' a four-run, fourth inning outburst that helped Ken Brett to his llth victory. Brett, who is known as much--if not more--for his hitting than his pitching, set up what proved to be the winning run with a hit-and-run single in the seventh. PADRES 5, METS 4 Fred Kendall drove in three runs with a double and single and Dave Roberts socked a two-run homer for San Diego.

Red Sox 2, Rangers 1 Luis Tiant and Jim Bibby hooked up in a basic, old-fashioned pitching duel in Boston, and Tiant came out on top. Bibby, the Texas Rangers' hard-throwing young right- hander, fired a six-hitter but it wasn't good enough as Tiant allowed just four hits in pitching the Red Sox to victory. Brewers 6, White Sox 5 Big George Scott drove in four runs for the Brewers, finally winning the game with his ninth home run of the season leading off the ninth inning. Earlier, Scott three times had driven home rookie Robin Yount. Jorge Orta belted a three-run homer for the White Sox. Twins 3, Tigers 2 Harmon Killebrew drove in the winning run in the llth inning with a single off Detroit relief ace John Hiller. The Tigers, who suffered their fourth consecutive loss, had lied the score with 1 wo out in the ninth on Bill Freehan's RBI single. Orioles 3, Angels 1 Boog Powell drove in two runs and Mike Cuellar and Bob Reynolds combined on a four- hitter for the Orioles, who moved into a flat-footed tie with Cleveland for first place in the AL East. It was the fourth consecutive victory and seventh in eight games for the Orioles. The Angels have lost 10 in a row, including nine 'since Dick Williams took over as manager.
