• A party of Williams anglers hit ideal conditions for a weekend of fishing at Lake Mead and, as a result, recorded a record catch. The party, made up of Gordon McDowell, Rod Graves, Tim McGrath, Marion Blevins, Jerry Duffield, and Ruel Allen, went to Temple Bar Thursday afternoon and boarded the McDowell-Graves cabin cruiser. Every member of the party succeeded in taking a sufficient number of the Lake Mead bass to decorate the frying pans and take home the limit.
