·MmMMn^ Aubrey Shepherd Murray Lewis Wins Farmington Title '· Springdale's Murray Lewis "threw a chartreuse Arkie landem spinner bait all day so hard you wouldn't believe ; it" to catch fourteen pounds six ounces of black bass and : win first place in Sunday's · second Farmirrgton Jaycees Championship Bass Tournament at Hickory, Creek on Beaver Lake. , Most of · Murray's ten keepers were taken from shallow water. The most impressive thing about this well-known Beaver · Lake guide was that imme- · diately after collecting his '·· $250 winner's check he set .-· about filletting some of the bass. While most of the fish · caught were released alive, quite, a few died and Murray · was unwilling to see any go lo waste. Because he makes a . large part of his living by · guiding and manufacturing ·· lures (and winning tournaments), Murray recognizes the value of conservation of ' our fish resources. 1 Second place was taken by Boh Carnes, who also won · second in the previous Farm- · i n g t o n Tournament. Bob · weighed in ten bass for a · total weight of 14 pounds two ' ounces. He fished a quarter- ounce Arkie single spinner. " Some of his fish were 1 shallow: some were near tree " tops and points over as much · as 55 feet of water. Third place went to Greg · Copeland of Fayetteville. manufacturer of Greg's Speed · Gear Conversion Kits and Bass Power Handles. Greg caught most of his fish on · white spinner baits and some on chartreuse ones. He gave '' much credit for his success 1 to his partner Roy Harriman. who had found the good ' concentration of fish a few : days eariler. Even fishing from the back of Greg's Boat, TIMES press- · man Roy Harriman ^vas .,· able to catch enough fish to finish fourth in the x tournament! Roy said that be and Greg "just flat let too many fish get off the hook." They both , hooked several good fish that threw the hook. Roy did not decide to enter the tournament until the last · minute, but knowing he could find fish made it hard for , him to stay away, even ' though he had worked until the wee hours of the morning. LAST MINUTE ENTRY ' Despite the heavy rain, Roy paid his money and entered · at the last minute. Roy's wife Carolyn had been ill for several days, but she encouraged him to fish the tournament, knowing he had a good chance to win. Had this been · a buddy tournament, Greg 'and Roy would have been the winners on the basis of the legal fish weighed in, for their total pounds -- 12 pounds four · ounces for Greg and eight pounds four ounces for Roy · --.would have outweighed any ·T other boat's legal total. Seven pounds 1? ounces was enough to put Max Hosan in · fifth place, while sixth place winner Ricky Hutton needed only two fish -- one a five pound two dunce lunker -- to take home $50. He received 'big bass honors as well as place money. : Five pounds 12 ounces of '-· bass gave Don Stewart seventh place. He was 1 "followed closely by Orval ' Carnes with five pounds eight ounces. UTEP Ready To Defend Bottom 10 Championship Four pounds II ounces put Bob Toney barely ahead of Harold (Butch) Slroud and Lannle Whilehouse who tied l i n 0 ' for tenth place with four pounds 10 ounces. A coin toss gave the $25 tenth place money to Butch Slroud, operator of Ihe Massey-Ferguson dealership in Huntsville. Twelfth place went lo Jim Black with four pounds five ounces. Thirleenth place was unlucky for Aubrey Shepherd, who complained of losing a lunker because-of a slipping drag which would not re-engage (the offending reel has already been taken to Greg Enterprises for repairs). Joe Burch. Department manager for Hutcheson Shoe Co., won fourteenth place with four pounds of bass. Bill Lambert rounded out the top fifteen with three pounds four ounces. Sixteenth place was another lie. Gordon Davis and Foster Hollzclaw each weighed in three pounds of bass. Gordon, who won the previous Farm- itiglon Jaycees Bass contest saw both his records -- for heaviest slringer and for big bass -- erased. But Gordon gives a lot of people fishing tips from his post as Woolworth's Sporting Goods Dep a r t m e n t Manager, a n d several of his favorite spots were occupied when he got to them Sunday. Eighteenth place was taken by Terry Clayton of Wheeler Vokswager, followed by John Wages and Lawrence McConnell. M A N Y FISH CAUGHT Of the 3D men who fished in the Farmington Tourney, very few failed to catch at least a few small fish. In fact, most caught a lot of small bass. It always seems thai the 11 inch bass bite well during tournaments. But 12 inches is the smallest acceptable for weighing. Northwest Arkansas Bass- masters took the $50 prize as the club weighing in the heaviest string for its top five men participating. Bob Carnes, Murray Lewis, Terry Clayton, Max Hcrgan, and Gordon Davis were among the representatives of that club. Greg Copeland's high finish brought honor to the Washington County Bassmaslers. T h e Huntsville-Madison County Bass Clubs were well represented by B u t c h Stroud. Fishing with Butch was a great pleasure for us. Butch was kind enough to let the fishing reporter control the boat most of the time, making it easier for him to fish his crank baits. Butch fished a worm most, of the time, catching many fish. Several times he took one or more fish from spots where the fishing reporter's crank bait had just attracted a fish. In this spring's B.A.S.S. National tournament on Beaver Lake, Butch scored very high. But although h e , had caught some lu^kers earlier last week, the big fish eluded Butch on Sunday. The Madison County club members usually fish the area of the lake around Rocky Brasch, hut they were : reasonably successful fishing the upstream areas out of Hickory Creek. By STEVE HAWEY THE COLI-EGES Things are so bad at the University of Texas (El Paso) for rookie coach Gil Bartosh, that he is reportedly looking for a ig I thin running back able to squeeze through the small holes opened by the team's offensive The Miners posted an 0-11 record last year to win the Bottom Ten college football title. And there is no reason lo believe that Ihey won't repeat. Their chief contender may be Army. At times last season, it appeared that the Cadets (0-10) had two head coaches on the field at the same time. That's because coach Tom Cahill would become so angered at the Cadets' play thai he was beside has since resigned. himself.

Northwest Arkentas TIMES, Wed., Sept. 4, 1974 rAVITTEVILLC. AKKANtAl 17 Duniven: lech Can Win Big r LUBBOCK, Tex. (AP) -- Un-l csted Texas Tech quarterback 'ora Duniven lold touring Southwest Conference football vritcrs Monday "we have the personnel lo win real big." Duniven, a red shirt sophomore from McLean, Tex., has yel lo fire a shol for the Red Haider varsity. He was a phe- nom two years ago on an unbeaten freshmen team that whipped Oklahoma, Houston and Arkansas. a ligament tear in his knee. But he has the tools of a polential superslar. He once threw a pass 70 yards in high school. Tech Coach Jim Carlen has kept close wraps on Duniven, refusing to allow the strapping G-foot-2, 200-pounder lo be interviewed untl fall camp began. Duniven said, "Coach Carlen look a lot of pressure off me when he did thai." Duniven is slepping into the shoes of Atl-SWC quarterback Joe Barnes who led the Raiders lo a Galor Bowl victorry before he graduated. Duniven saw little work dur don't expect me to come in and do a job like .Joe did his senior year. If I'm just adequate we will win big." Duniven sa wliltle work dur- ng spring practice because of Carlen said of Duniven: "He las a super arm--a pro-lype arm. He has perhaps the strongest arm for any quarter back who has ever played for le." The quarterback position is one of the queslion marks on a potentially powerful Texas Tech team which finished sec ond to Texas last year in Ihe SWC. "Duniven has confidence an the ability to play but he jus doesn't have the experience and you can't really rale him until you see him in a game,' Carlen said. The Raiders lost 18 regulars including seven All Conferenc performers and one All-Ameri can, off the 1973 club. Tech opens ti^e season Sepl. 14 in Lubbock against Iowa State.
