The water in Lake Fayetteville is turning, according to Everett. The temperature has evened up and the fish seem to be on a feeding spree. There is to be no more night fishing on Lake Fayetteville until next spring. The spillway is being repaired, making it difficult to launch large boats at the ramp. But small boats may easily be launched. SEQUOYAH Lake fishing ii good. Johnnie Anderson and Burt Rogers took 35 crappie in two trips. All were large ones which hit jigs.

Gordon has watched the flock coma by each year and stop over for one or two days and then move on. Gordon says they are truly graceful in flight. W e l l i n g t o n Lake Lodge reports that few people are fishing this week. But last \yeekend was pretty productive for the few who tried fishing. Cliff Wheatley and Doc Lewis from Denton, Texas, caught a few nice channel catfish over the weekend. The weather was bad enough to keep a lot of people off the lake for a bit, but things are looking better now. Lo-Bo Bcavcrland reports that a lot of crappie and white bass have been brought in lately by customers. Minnows in crappie size are the best selling bait now. Wild Card Sport Shop reports lhat people are buying Spence Scout, Rooster Tail, and Jointed Rebels. Reports of crappie catches on Lake Elmdale are common, with minnows the preferred bait.

Renfro, the 5-11, 168-pound reshinan from Fort Worth Arlington Heights, began to show last week at Minnesota why ob- :ervers raved about him all through high school. He caught three passes for 50 yards and wcaved 41 yards on a reverse lo set up TC.U's touchdown in a 9-7 loss. "I was surprised the reverse was called," he "says, "but it worked," It worked because of Renfro's a r l f u l dodging. Having avoided tackier to get beyond right end. Renfro slopped ("a guy almost look my head off, but when I stopped he missed me") and looked back. He saw a wall of Elorned Frogs ("just like punt return)" and cut back behind them. "Mike," says TCU offensive coordinator Tommy Runnels, 'is one of the few athletes wilh complete body control. That's what he used on t h a t long run." "Minnesota was the first lame where I really 'got to do something with the ball," says Renfro. He feels being able to ;o after he gets the ball was one reason he made the varsity as a freshman. But another reason,.is that he's been going to school on a TCU-type passing attack for most of his life. His father is Ray Renfro, former Cleveland Browns receiver (where he was a teammale of TCU coach Jim Shoiner) and Dallas Cowboys coach. "He was a great help," Mike admits. "Mostly by sitting down and showing me pass routes, drawing them on paper. So really I've been doing the same thiirgs I'm doing now since the seventh grade." Even so, he had some learning to do as a Frog varsity freshman. . LEARNING TO DO "For a while," he says, "I studied my playbook harrier than my schoolbooks.

Chad Utley is making a lot of tackles these days. The TCU senior defensive end had 10 unassisted stops, last week against Minnesota, a couple ot which point out his value of the Frogs. He helped stop one Gopher threat at the Frog 11. coming all the way across the field in pursuit lo nail the Minnesota quarterback for a yard loss on an option play.

Utley's key plays ncluded a quarerback trap to end one drive and a stop for three-yard loss to stop an- ither goalward march. "Chad made about 15 super ilays against Minnesota," said ?CU defensive coordinator Don Lawrence. Yet when lie finished his Lub- lock High School career, Utley vent largely unsought and figured he would forget football. "I thought I'd go to Texas Tech and try to play baseball," he recalls.

Campbell had done the show wilh Broyks since 1958, first on KARK-TV and on KATV since 19S6. "1 called Chris and asked him to do the show this one time in honor of Bud," sale Doubleday. "He said he would be glad lo do it." During his years as pi ay-byplay announcer for ABC college football, Schenkel worked many Arkansas games, including the Texas games of 1969'and 1970. Schenkel and Broyles have been friends for years, both professionally and personally. Doubleday indicated lhat decision had been made con cerning the Broylei show a (lei thi* denday. South Africa Could Capture The Davis Cup JOHANNESBURG, South Af- ica (AP) -- South Africa could clinch its semifinal Davis Cup match today, and possibly cap- ,ure the Cup itself. Ray Moore needed only one more poinl to heat Italy's No. 1 player, Adriano Panatta, when )lay was stopped because of darkness Thursday. The long- laired Moore, a veteran of the tennis lour, was leading 4-6, 6-0, 6-3, 5-4 when the match was hailed. portunity lo go lo TCU and he's glad he gave football another chance. Utley's biggest asset may be his attitude toward playing. LIKES COMPETING "You get big plays," he says, when you keep trying. If you just keep going, something might happen and you'll be Ihere. I guess you call it desire. Bui it's just because 1 enjoy playing. I really do like competing and I like the contact." "His tremendous determination is his greatest asset," says Lawrence. "Chad might be the most underrated defensive end around. There are bigger ends, but none more determined. I can't imagine a youngster getting after it any better than he does. He has the ability to come up with the big plays, and that's what can change ball games. He may have a super year." Until late last season Utley, a 6-foot, 200-pounder, had been an outside linebacker. "End," he says, "isn't much different. Our ends this year ar e crashing a lot, attacking. It helps me because of my size. And this defense gives us all a chance to be seen." It must, because Utley certainly been easy to spot this year. He's the one bear-hugging the runner. Wilh South Africa already leading Italy 1-0, victories by Moore and in Ihe doubles would make Saturday's two final singles mere formalities. The winner of the best-of-five match series will face India, which defeated the Soviet Union to move into the Cup finals. However, India has threatened lo boycott matches against South Africa to protest that country's racial policy of apartheid.
