PAGE FOUR WALSH COUNTY PRESS, PARK RIVER, NORTH DAKOTA THURSDAY, MAY 19, J S100nt00 o. Sp By Tom Kelly BLUE MONDAY Skies were overcast and heads were downcast Monday as Walsh county Isaac Waltons trudged home at the end of the first day of fishing season after dragging their lines in Lake Heroine. The fish were on a hook-fre diet. An estimated 300 to 400 anglers made'a showing the first day. A few had luck. Others just "had it," Gordon Johnson, Park River, landed an ll-pound northern. But he even had to do it the hard way. The _pike scorned Johnson's hook and snagged itself on the barb as it swam by. Hamilton and Oliver Berg were among the lucky ones to get frying pan fodder, They yanked out five walleyes. 1 held off until Tuesday but then joined the ranks of the luckless. stirring my stumps from the four- poster at 4 a. m. and calling it a day three hours later--skunked. Even the game warden couldn't scare the fish from the bottom on Monday. A 14-in. yearling northern tied in Bry's hook. But he enforced the regulations on himself and tossed the pickerel back into the lake (the size limit on northerns is E 18 inches this year--there is no! minimum on any of the other fish) But here's a cheering thought. The fish mus be there. About two million fingerlings were planted in 1 the lake before it was opened to fishing for the first time last year. So the fault must be with the weather. But. pardon the pun, it could be that those fish are just playing the anglers for "suckers." PLAY BALL The Welsh county baseball league opens its schedule Sunday. Games on tap are: Park River at Nekoma; Gardar at Conway-Fordville; Gilhy at Nash; Veseleyville at Grafton; Minto at Warsaw. Mahdi has a bye and will be host to Fairdale. Games in the West will be at 2 p. m., in the East at 2:30 p. m. A shortage of players has raised question marks as to whether some teams would have full rosters. Ad- ams dropped out for that reason (not enm players) and was re- placed by Nekoma. Mandt lacks a Ditcher to complete its team but will make an effort to remedy that situation and play the schedule. Other notes on a league meeting at Park River Monday: East and West Welsh leagues both voted to affiliate with the state amateur baseball association * * the coun- ty playoff will be the same as last year--the two top teams playing for the best two out of three games * the All-Star game will match the East against the West. with 60 per cent of the gate going to the winner and 40 per cent to the loser * * another meeting will be held to select the All-Star teams. The league also voted to have the chairman name a committee to work out an acceptable setup for team boundaries--areas to which the various teams will be confined when recruiting players. ooo COUNTY LEGION TOURNEY TO BE AT PARK RIVER The Walsh county junior Ameri- can Legion baseball tournament will be held at Park River this year. Representatives from -,, the teams chose the site Monday when they met at Park River to draw up the league schedule and elect officers; {the schedule appears elsewhere in this issue.) New officers are: Ray Gornovich of Minto. president: Leo Englerth. Park River. secretary- treasurer. The tournament date will be set later. Forest River replaces Fordville this year on the schedule. Other teams are Park River. Edinburg, Minto, Fairdale Oakwood an d "Grafton, Games will be played on Monday and Friday evenings, start- ing at 6 o'clock. The schedule starts June 3. There has been a change in eligibility rules, extending the age limit. All boys who have not reach- ed their 18th birthday before Sept. 1 are eligible, On the local scene: Englerth again will coach the Park River team. Only two of last season's regulars will be eligible, so Coach Englerth no doubt gets mitsy-eyed thinking about the season prospects. How- ever, as yet hasn't reached for the crying towel. And he urges all in- terested boys to turn out for prac- tice because every position is wide open. Practices will be held Mon- day and Wednesday evenings until the season starts.
