John K. Mason, of Grayling, was on a float trip on the South Branch but did not expect to catch a trout since this stream is never at its best early in the season. FOR HIM THIS trip is an opening day ritual in memory of his father, George who gave many miles of this river to the state several years ago for public fishing. The main stream" of the Sturgeon River near Wolverine is high but quite clear.

fishermen as a year ago," said Joe Suty, of 8269 Pine-hurst, Detroit. He tried his luck with a yellow and white homemade streamer and took three trout by eight o'clock. At the High Banks public fishing site on the AuSable River one can normally see at least a dozen anglers in the stream, but Saturday there was only a single car with an Ohio license. Jo Sarie, of 269 Pinehurst, Detroit, fished two hours without a single strike. He passed five other fishermen who had no fish either.

Only two fishermen's cars were parked at i h's a complete loss. Bear, Starvation and Blue lakes in Kalkaska county had no open water at all. The trouters chopped ice holes in Blue Lake to fish. IN CRAWFORD county popular Brights and Glory lakes also were ice covered. Howes Lake, near Grayling, was an exception.

The ice there went out Friday, and Saturday morning 22 anglers took 38 fish by 8:30 a.m. Last years 46 anglers took 22 fish during comparable hours, according to records kept by Arnold Hubbell, of Grayling. Mr. and Mrs. Howard San-ture, of 1001 E.

Jefferson, Detroit, reported the best catch on Howes lake: nine rainbow trout all on worms. The East Branch of the AuSable River above the State's fish hatchery produced catches. Water temperatures there were 38 degrees. Among successful anglers were Howard Skinner of Lapeer; Ward Buron of Grayling and 16-year-old Tom Hatfield of Grayling, who caught a 19-inch rainbow.

They did not catch many fish. Streams are cold, high and colored, and nearly all lakes are still locked in ice. Few trout were caught before daylight. It was so cold that ice formed in the guides of fishing rods. Below freezing temperatures prevailed until the sun began to shine.

A' If Charger Bows To Tom Rolfe LOUISVILLE Tom Rolfe outlasted Native Charger in the stretch Saturday and won the $6,000 Stepping Stone Purse, one of the last major testa for Kentucky Derby paid $:.0 and $2.20, while Narushua was worth $3.20 in show. hopeful3.

Narushua finished third in the field of seven for the seven-furlong race, opening-day attraction at Churchill Downs. The winner, owned by Powhatan Stables, laid back during the early running and made his move as the field started around the home turn. At the head of the stretch Native Charger moved up on the outside to come within 1 lengths of catching Tom Rolfe as he crossed the finish line. The time was 1:22 4-5. Tom Rolfe, ridden by Ron Turcotte, returned $7, $2.80 and S2.40.

Native Charger Few fish were caught, re-ported Jerry Donovan, of St. Clair Shores, and Dick Maher, of 18067 Gruebner, Detroit. Donovan hooked a rainbow a little after sunrise but failed to land it. There were only a few fishermen on the Manistee river. Both fishermen and camp-, ers who sought remote spots discovered snow banks in the trails and snow scattered throughout the woods.

It will probably take a week or two of sunshine to raise stream temperatures to the poinc where trout fishing will be produc- tive. Stumblins Yanks Drop 4th Straight Chance Bottles Up Champs for IVo. 100 NEW YORK (UPD Dean Chance of the Los Angeles Angels continued his mastery over the New York Yankees Saturday, allowing only six" hits in a 6-3 victory over the defending American League champions, who suffered their fourth straight loss. It was Chance's 100th major league start and his 48th vic- tory. He walked four and fanned eight in beating the Yankees for the fifth consecutive time over two seasons.

Jose Paul Schaal and Bobby Knopp knocked in two runs apiece to pace the Angels' 14-hit attack against four Yankee pitchers. BOB RODGERS led off the Angels' second inning with a single and one out later, Schaal tripled. Knoop then doubled, giving Los Angeles a 2-0 lead. Cardenal scored Knoop with a single. Jim the Yankees' starter and loser, gave up another run in the sixth inning.

With one out and Knoop on base via a single, Cardenal got his third hit of the game, a' double, to score Knoop. Four consecutive hits with' two out off Steve Hamilton in-the seventh gave the Angels two more runs before Hal Ren-. iff got the third out. The Yankees ruined Chance's shutout bid in the eighth when pinch-hitter Phil Linz walked Tom Tresh singled. Tresh reached second on right fielder Lou Clinton's bobble.

Chance then balked home the first run with Tresh moving to third and Tresh scored on Roger Maris' ground out. The Yankees scored their third and final run in the ninth on a d-rule double by John jBlanchard, scoring Tresh, who had singled and reached second jon a ground out. I Schaal had to leave the game the seventh inning when ha reinjured his right ankle sliding into third base.

Olivet Still Tops MI A A OLIVET Olivet and Albdon Colleges split a doubleheader 'here Saturday and traded one- hitters, but Olivet still leads the MIAA conference with a 3-1 record.

In the opener Olivet won, 2-0, behind the one-hit pitching of Dan Speaker. In the second game Albion won, 8-0, as Al Kahl turned in a one-hit pitching job and aided his own cause with a three-run first-inning homer. Tom Rolfe carried 122 pounds, as did Native Charger and Dapper Delegate. The three Derby eligibles gave away as much as 10 pounds. The final tune-up for the Derby candidates will come next Tuesday in the one-mile Derby Trial.

Big dugout reception for Gates Brown (26) after he slammed his game-winning homer Tigers Are Willing to Forget Error of McAuliffe 's Ways Pinch HR By Brown Settles Duel Horton Swats Two In Tiger Victory BY JOE FALLS William James Brown solved a problem and created a new one with one swing of his bat Saturday. The guy they call Gates came out of the darkness of the dugout (which is a polite way of saying he's the guy the Tigers have forgotten) and slammed a three-run homer in the pinch to carry the Tigers to a 7-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins. Brown connected in the ninth inning, after his pal Willie Horton had hit a pair of towering homers to keep the Tigers in the game, and when it was over, manager Bob Swift sat in his office shaking his head. THE MAN HAS a problem.

Now who does he play in left-field Jim Northrup, who has held down the job for the last month; Horton, whose two homers against the Twins carried almost 800 feet; or Brown, who has a right to complain about the way he has been handled but prefers to let his bat do the talking? It's a pleasant problem, of course, but nevertheless a problem. The Tigers are still bidding to build up a solid record and Swift wants his hottest players in there. "I'll decide when I come out to the park Sunday," he said. But the man already was thinking about it, so much so that he was polling the sports writers for their opinion. This much is certain: Brown got one vote.

THIS ONE WAS all uphill for the Tigers. They srtruggled through three hours and five minutes in the icy afternoon air and had to overcome three er rors by Dick McAuliffe. Mac now has made five er rors in the last two games, and his wild throw in the ninth in ning Saturday seemed to cost the Tigers the game. It set up two unearned runs for the Twins and put them into a 4-3 lead. But Horton and Brown pulled it out with their brute strength.

Well, it happened again Saturday. Wickersham got the heave-ho from plate umpire Bill Haller. "All I said was he was standing too far away from the plate to call the pitches," said Wickersham. Don Demeter looked at Wickersham and said: "I don't know, you're becoming an awful rowdy. I might have to get myself another roommate." Now Wickersham has a new boast: "Every time I get thrown out, we win WOULDN'T you know it: The Tigers are 5-0 in day games and this year they've booked a record 39 night games at home.

They're not asking: "What's wrong with the Merely: "What's wrong with Dick McAuliffe?" Mac has made five errors in the last two games, six in the first nine games. Nobody feels worse about it than McAuliffe himself. "I don't know what's happening," he said after committing three errors In Sat-rurday's game" against the Twins. "I've been trying to field the ball like I used to, charging it instead of laying back, but I guess I've been overcharging It." McAuliffe looked across the room to where Phil Regan was getting dressed. "That's the guy I feel sorry for," he said.

"He should have won this one. I threw it away for him." McAuliffe's throwing error in the ninth set up two unearned runs for the Twins and deprived Regan of his first victory. "I wanted this one," Regan admitted. But he also told McAuliffe to forget his mis-cues. "Everybody makes mistakes," said Regan.

"I didn't want them to hit in Ihe ninth and he didn't want to throw the ball away. That's the way It goes." Manager Bob Swift is puzzled by McAuliffe's play. "I don't know what's wrong," said Swift. "I know Mac was an outstanding player for us in Florida." Dwift also told McAuliffe to forget the errors. "He'll stay at shortstop," said Swift, adding that a benching could hurt McAu- liffa morale.

CATCHER Bill Freehan Dick McAuliffe got into his first game since April 6 and handled himself well. He failed to hit in five tries but moved around easily behind the plate. BASEBALL A LA Phil Regan "I thought he looked good," said Swift. "His timing is off, but that's to be expected." DAVE WICKERSHAM, a quiet, church-going guy, used CBS Computer's Pitch a percentage figure on the relative importance of the situation. For example, if a man comes up NEW YORK W) The Columbia Broadcasting System introduced a novel system 3f rating the performance of baseball players in pressure' situations in Saturday's television Game of the Week between the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels from Yankee Stadium.

When a player comes to bat, the situation of the game as to score, outs, runners on base is relayed to a computer in Phoenix, which instantaneously provides with the score tied in the seventh inning and two out, a test run of the computer has returned the information that the situation rated 34 per cent. If the man singled, however, the next batter would be in a 52 per cent situation. CBS hopes to establish the seasonlong possibility of a batter coming through under clutch conditions. AP Photo HE MAY HAVE FOUND the way to keep his ears warm, but Creighton Ols (right) also lost the race and maybe it was the extra weight. Ols a half-miler for Milwaukee's Pulaski High School, was beaten by Pius XI's Kim Gnader, who had colder cars, but hotter feet.
