I iterally millions of dollars and words have been ex
,f]fd and extolled in advertising and promotion of fishing
tributes in the nation but this writer has never seen a
®tn . tiiat promoted a type of fishing that should appeal to
, ja2y man—a millpond surrounded by shade trees and
'"iLfwith fish which jump onto the hook.
“ ^ fisherman is not lazy in the same instance he does
''not count the cost.

The idea came to mind Friday
. wilnvngton business man
h hen 3 u *
"How’s fishing?
He continued:
.■I anl not going fishing until I
; „ be assured of a place full of
Lde trees and plenty of fish.”
' Fnat is well and good but take
a,vay the inconvenience and cost
if fishing ar.d the sport will lose
Vman - and many women for
:hal matter - are never happier

„jth a rod looking somewhat like
, telephone and a line
tavy enough to lasso a young
•olt awaiting the .strike of a fish.
He will let the «aves beat bimt
alt spray sling him; sun broil
jm vet ’never complain as long
|S he" gets a strike at intervals.
He has paid 70 cents a pound
or bait to catch 25 cents a pound
He will spend $65 to make a
r;o to the Gulf Stream to catch
Ish that he will not eat.
He will pay $2 for each 50 yards
dine; 75 cents for a tackle and
0 cents each for hooks that can
e lost in one cast.
He will expend money for gas,
food and outboard motors and
link nothing of the cost, at the
ame time he will argue about the
rice of break and milk.
I Yes, the fisherman is a funny
illovv, but that funny fellow
pends more money in a year’s
me than is expended in all other
ports combined.
Even the fresh water enthusiast
kinks nothing of paying one doi
n' (or a bait and after filling a
kckle box with pretty lures buys
ive minnows or digs worms for
|s fishing pleasure.
■ The sand fleas, gnats, mosquito
lid flie can bother him yet he
fever complains.
i He will slip away from home
kiowing the wrath of the ‘little
roman’ will be upon him on his re*
irn yet he will fish day in and
ay out if the weather and time
No, let’s keep fishing the way it
i, Make it tough and you will
ave more satisfied fishermen.
Baxter F. Ozment, known to all
ldtime anglers in this area, will
rot a line next month for the first
me in eight years he informed
s yesterday.
Ozment, holder of many fishing
rizes during his active years,
aid he was unable to continue
eading about the big ‘uns and re
tain away from the stream and
”My reel is being repaired and
then I get it back the fish had
etter watch out,” he informed
(Lot’s of luck Ozment—we know
what you mean.)
I have just finished thumbing
through several issues of the New
Hanover Fishing club’s annuals—
1936-1941 and the thing that first
caught the eye was a letter from
the president in the ‘36 issue.
George Canady, head of the
club that year, ended his letter:
“Oceans of Luck to You.”
‘Drum’ as this column is wont
to call Canady hit the nail on the
head as he said “Oceans.”
In the 10 years since that letter
has been written the fishing busi
ness—from a sporting angle—has
increased until today we find the
largest fishing club in the country
working with an organization
sponsoring the largest fishing con
test in the nation.
Yes, the ocean is starting to
pay off.
. The 1937 annual is most inter
esting. It brings back to memory
the days when the large blues
ran with F. H. Orrell winning the
'36 prize with a nine pound, 14
and one-half pound specimen.
The 1937 contest resulted in J.
C. Roe taking a five pound, 12
qunce fish in Zone A and Fred
Futch one weighing seven pounds,
13 ounces in Zone B.
I 1939 A. A. Keels was presi
dent. The annual tells of casting
contests in which E. A. Jones was
crowned champion during the 1938
The 1941 annual js most' inter
esting as it was the last published
before the war. H. G. Latimer,
Jr. was president.
In that year the club was striv
ing to pass the 1,000 mark in
membership and had put up cash
and prizes approximating $1,500.
The club has now passed that
mark and is continuing to contri
bute its share towards promoting
the fishing of North Carolina es
pecially in the Southeastern area.
If they are not doing the same
thing as a number of small boys
and some grown-ups at Southport
and other points in Brunswick, a
lot of folks all along the coast are
now missing out on some really
thrilling fishing, although the
much loved rods and reels are
not very practical.
The sport ie fishing for mulletts,
the best of which fishing can be
had at high tide, although the fish
can be caught at about anytime
and at any place which they fre
quent. A pound or two-pound mul
lett on a cane pole and line, or
a hand line, can put up a thrill
ing battle.
A very small hook is needed
and, likewise, a very small chunk
of bait must be used. This can
be dough, worked into cotton to
make it tougher, or peeled shrimp
in a neet little lump. The mullet
doee not jerk on the bait but takes
it in its mouth to suck. If it is
likable the fish runs away with
it and a jerk secures it. The bait
ed hook should be suspended ap
proximately 15 inches beneath the
surface. _

Pate’s Prediction
Proved Correct
As Ted Scores Win
—(JP)—The high nopes of Aus
tralia’s Davis Cuppers went
smash again today, and the huge
international tennie trophy ap
peared to be safely stowed away
in the land of its origin for at
least another year after the two
Californians, Jack Kramer and
Ted Schroeder, batted their way
to victory in the opening singles
Kramer opened the flood gates
with a crushing 6 2, 6-1, 6-2 tyin
over curly-haired Dinny Pails, the
Australian champion, and Schroe
Walter Pate, former non
playing captain of the TJ. S.
Davis Cup team tells why Ted
Schroeder was selected over
Frank Parker to face Jack
Bromwich in the Cup matches
in the August issue of Atlantic
monthly. Pate, father of Mrs.
George Stearns, of Wilmington,
declared that no netter alive
could defeat Bromwich with
out rushing the net, and
Schroeder, if he could get into
condition in time, was the
American most likely to win
from the Aussie ace. Schroed
er’s victory yesterday provides
ample proff that the New York
attorney hit the nail right on
the head, and answers his
critics better than any verbal
or written arguments.
der then came through with the
second half of Uncle Sam’s fa
mous one-two punch as he charg
ed the net off and on for more
than two hours and humbled Jack
Bromwich, 6-4, 5-7, 6-3, 6-4.
The results thus were a dupli
cate of the first day’s play ait
Melbourne last December, when
the American pair brought back
the Cup after it had been in the
land down under for seven years.
The only difference was that Big
Jake and the Tireless Ted did it
easier this time.
Kramer, the greatest amateur
in the world by far today, simply
overwhelmed Pails. It was never
a contest from the moment Kram
er unlimbered his terrific all-court
game. Pails scored only nine
placements in the entire match,
and it was mercifully over after
only 52 minutes.
Schroeder, to the suprise of the
experts, made easier work of
Bromwich than he did eight
months ago, when the Aussie star
carried him the limit of five sets.
Except for the second set, Ted
gave the impression all the way
that he was playing within him
self and would win any point, or
half-dozen points, that he deemed
NEW YORK, Aug. 30 —Joe
Page, the ace relief pitcher of the
New York Yankees, racked up his
13th victory and his third in the
club’s last three games when the
American League leaders defeat
ed the Washington Senators 6-5 to
Johnny LindeH's single off Tom
Ferrick, after George Stirnweiss
and Timmy Henrich had walked,
sent in the deciding run in the
last of the ninth with two out.
Frank Shea started for the Yan
kees and for eight innings looked
headed for his first success in
eight weeks and his 12th of the
year, but Washington pinch hit
ters Cecil Travis, Early Wynn
and Tim McBride singled in the
ninth to produce the tying run.
Joe DiMaggio hit his 16th hom
er of the year in the third inning
to give the Yankees a 3-1 lead.
They added two more in the fifth
off Ray Scarborough to make it
5-1. The Nats got a run in the
seventh and added a couple of
more in the eighth on Mickey Ver
non’s two-run homer. Page reliev
ed Shea in the ninth and gave up
the tying run on a single to Mc
Bride. He pitched to but two bat
ters in recording his victory.

Mt. Airy Coach
Begins 13th Year
MOUNT AIRY, Aug. 30 — Ath
letes have gained the reputation
of being superstitious people, but
Wally Shelton, Mount Airy high
school’s popular athletic instruc
tor, wrinkles his nose at the idea,
indicating that despite the fact
that he will begin his thirteenth
year at the local school on Sep
tember 4, he will have another
successful season.
It might be added that Wally
has seldom had anything but suc
cessful seasons, since he has
taken five state championships
and been in the play-offs three
times in the thirteen years.
After graduating from Mounl
Airy high school he attended the
University of North Carolina, re
ceiving his A. B. degree in 1931.
The following two years were
spent at White Plains high
school in Surry county, where he
coached baseball, basketball and
tory oi the local school took a
hard-fought victory from Edenton
in Kenan stadium at Chapel Hill
by a score of 7-0 for the title.
In 1937 Wally took over full re
sponsibility of the gridiron destiny
of the school, and the following
year produced what old - time
coaches called "the greatest high
school football team ever produc
ed in North Carolina”.. Needless
to say, the highly - touted squad
won the state championship from
Whiteville, also in Kenan stadium,
by the score of 28-20.
Wally’s next football trip to
Chapel Hill.was in 1941, when his
squad dropped a 20-6 tilt to Laur
inburg. The following year the
Mount Airy team atoned ior this
defeat by copping the state
championship there, beating Scot
land Neck by the record-breaking
score of 58-0.
Wally’s next championship team
was last year’s great undefeated
squad, which took the state title
The years 1933-34 found Wally,
as he is known among the sport
ing fraternities throughout the
state, serving as educational ad
visor for two units of CCC camps
located in the Great Smoky Moun
tains National park.
Here, Wally says, he coached
the greatest baseball team of his
entire life, an aggregation which
won 34 -out of 35 games played
In their only loss, Wally remem
bers, they took a terrific pasting.
He was named assistant foot
ball coach to Tom Cash, at Mt.
Airy in 1934, present head coach
at Gray high in Winston- SaJem,
and the two teamed up to take
the state gridiron championship
the following year. One of the
greatest football teams in the his
by defeating Wadeeboro in Bow
man Gray stadium at Winston
Salem by a score of 38-0.
Wally came out on top in an
other sport last year when his
basketball boys won the state
championship from Washington
high, 35-34, at Rockford street
gym here, climaxing a brilliant
season. It was the first state cage
title in the school’s history. His
girls’ basketball team played in
the Journal and Sentinel tourna
ment final at Winston-Salem in
1945-46, and last year lost out in
the semi-finals to Union Grove.
Last year Wally took over the
coaching position for the baseball
team, giving him complete com
mand over five sports played at
the school.
Hamilton, Oliver
Tied In Western
—Bob Hamilton of Evansville,
Ind., and Ed "Porky” Oliver of
Wilmington, Del., turned on the
steam today to-burst ahead of the
field at the halfway mark in the
$12,500 72-hole Western Open golf
The 31-year-old Hamilton, form
er National PGA champion, was
shooting with ice-cold consistency
today as he mastered the canyon
cut Salt Lake City Country club
course with a seven-under-par 65,
equaling the best 18-hole perform
ance of the meeting.
Added to his 60 in yesterday’*
first round, this gave him 134 and
a first-place tie with Oliver, who
went around today in 66 and miss
ed the leadership only because of
trouble on the 18th hole, which
has bothered him all week. His
ball flew over the flag into oak
brush behind the gallery and be
fore he recovered he had a one
over-par six.
“I was really shooting all right
today,” the stocky, red-faced vet
eran declared, “until I got to
those doggone bullrushes on the
18th. I’m going to figure that hole
gut if it takes all summer.”
Close behind these two seasoned
campaigners came William Korns
of Salt Lake City, a 25-year-old
amateur, with the only other 66
round of the tournament. This was

Marsh Hen
Season Opens
SOUTHPORT, Aug. 30 — Row
boats. for use tomorrow when the
Marsh Hen hunting season open*
up, were running short Thursday
when local sportsmen tried to
round up a lot of extra ones for
sportsmen calling from Charlotte.
Greensboro, Raleigh and a lot of
lesser points.
Reservations had already been
made in such large numbers that
it proved difficult, both to find
boats and experienced men to
pole them for the hunters.
From Game Warden H. T. Bow
mer and his agents, handling li
censes, there also comes reports
of a big rush for the hunting per
mits. Marsh Hen hunters muet
have licenses and on top of that
a duck stamp. Another essential
is a rowboat and some one to pole
it through the marshes. Licenses,
boats, boatmen are all about as
useful as a bird dog at the end
of the bird hunting season unless
there is a high tide.
me season opens lomuiruw ai
noon and hunters are being warn
ed not to go out before that time.
There is a reasonable expectancy
of a full moon high tide Monday
morning and again very late in
the evening. However, the evening
high tide will not be along until
it is about too dark to shoot. Tak
ig everything as it is, the hunt
ers say that they hardly expect
to get in any shooting until Tues
day morning. Then only if the tide
is high. The high tides, they think,
may last several days but this
depends largely on the direction
of the winds. A north east or east
wind at the regular twice daily
high tides will bring on good
marsh hen hunting.
Hunters are limited to 15 birds
per day. That means 30 or 45 to
the boat. The man doing the
poling of the boat is allowed 15
the same as the one doing the
shooting. Mostly they put two men
with guns in the boat with the
man poling and this will allow
for 45 birds.
Marsh hens are unable to swim.
The high tide forces them from
the ground into clumps of grass
and they remain at such places
until they are frightened up.
They usually rise only a few feet
ahead of the boat and they pre
sent a slow and easy target. It
is a poor man with a shotgun
who cannot get his full days limit,
with the extras for the guide, in
the two hours or so of high tide.
