New Clash Between Tar
Heel Fishing Centers Grabs Spotlight Report Of Baby Sailfish Being Caught Ires Local Anglers;ReportExplained The fur was flying again last night between Morehead City and Wilmington deep-sea fishing interests, as a repoit was made from the upstate fishing community that ap proximately 90 baby sailfish had been caught during the past week in purse seines with menhaden. Wilmington, through the publicity office of Ken Noble, Ltd., voice of the SENCBA sponsored rodeo, lashed the practice as malicious, quoting local fishing officials. Aycock Brown, author of the original report from More head City, declared hr story was written merely to show that sails may be spawning off the Tar Heel coast. He said there was no attempt being made to catch the game fish in its infant stage, and said for years fishermen had caught many different kinds of fish in the seines . . . fish that were not sought after, but unavoidably caught: The two stories follow: Bv AYCOCK BROWN MOREHEAD CITY. Oct. 11— A check up with local fishing guides and menhaden proces sing' plant operators here this week revealed that more than 100 sailfish were landed off the Carteret Coast during the 1947 season. Sixteen of the largest fish of this species were landed with rod and reel and that was an ell time record in local sports fishing annals. The remainder, approximately 90 small sailfish ranging in size from 18 inches to three feet in length, were caught in purse seines with menhaden. The latter nets were operated by crewmen aboard Beaufort Fisheries menhaden fishing boats. “On one day one of our boats brought in more than 50 small sailfish,’ ’said William Potter of the Fisheries plant. “They were small and we could not help catching them as they were in schools with the menhaden. They were killed as they were brought aboard,” he added. The face that so many baby sails have been landed off the coast here this year has led many to believe that these fine sportsfish are migrating to North Carolina for spawning purposes. Just where they may spawn however, whether in ocean or sound waters is not known. In addition to the many baby sails that have been taken, 1 large ones have been landed by sportsmen fishing with rod and reel in waters close to Cape Lookout and Atlantic Beach.

A wn Your 0 wn A Gift Suggestion For Birthday Christmas br Anniversary For T odies And Men i At Your Market St. Dial 6022 FROM KEN NOBEE, LIU. Southeastern North Carolina sportsmen were up in arms to day over a report from More head City, N. C., that at least 50 babv sailfish were reported ly killed this year by Morehead City menhaden purse seine fish ermen, and immediate indi cations were that the sportsmen would enlist the aid of state legislators to draft laws to stop the “malicious practice.” '"he report, originating from the Morehad City Chamber of Commerce news office, quoted a menhaden fisherman as say ing, “On one day one of our boats brought in more than 50 small sailfish. . . .They were killed as they were brought aboard.” The report also said “approximately 90 small sail fish ranging in size from 18 inches to three feet in length were caught in purse seines with menhaden,” but failed to dis close the fate of the 40 baby sails that didn’t fall into the hands of the fishermen who re ported! vkilled 50. Louis B. Orrell ol Wilmington, president of the Southeastern North Carolina Beach Associ ation, which is now staging its annual sports fishing event, the Fall Fishing Rodeo, declared : “The deliberate killing of baby sailfish instead of throwing them back into the ocean is a malicious practice. It is murder.” He said he would con fer with State representative Robert M. Kermon “at once” to get legislative machinery in motion to “conserve North Caro lina’s valuable game fish.” T. I. Watkins, president of the New Hanover Fishing Club, said he was “absolutely shocked” at the Morehead City report and pledged himself to fight for state protection of the immature sports fish. From Capt. Herman Reitz of Stuart, Fla., well-known profes sional fishing guide now partici pating in the rodeo, came this statement: “I never heard of such a thing. Down in Florida we don't even kill the adult sail fish we catch with rods and reels unless we want to mount them. Most of them are thrown back for the next fellow, who does the same. Unless More head City stops this wholesale slaughter, there won’t be any sailfish to catch at all in years to come,” Captain Reitz warn ed. Penn State Routs Fordham By 75-0 NEW YORK. Oct. 11—(^>)— Penn State strengthened its claim to one of the top grid rankings in the east today by handing a sup-par Fordham club a 75-0 going over that went into the Rams records as the most lopsided rout in their his toric Although Coach Bob Higgins of the unbeaten - united Nittany Lions cleaned his bench of his entire 38-man squad, the invad ers awed a small gathering of 12,000 in the Polo Grounds with a display of raw power. Rush ing over 40 points in a second period attack. State completely outclassed the Fordham club which had been trying to can cel the game ever since its 8-0 rout in 1946. Jeff Durkota, a husky senior wing back from Colver, Pa., who usually romps with the re serves behind starter Wallace Triplett, smashed across the Fordham goal for four touch downs on a 24-point scoring spree that boosted him among the Eastern leaders. lire Sales & Service PENNSLY VANIA TIRES & BATTERIES « -SHELL PRODUCTS BOYCE C.

Bewitch, went into The Futurity at Belmont unbeaten, though her narrow victory in the Matron Stakes was voided by disqualification. — By HARRY GRAYSON NEA Spurts Editor NEW YORK, Oct. 11—(NEA) — A lot of racegoers didn't realize what they were seeing when they saw Alsab run lickity split in 1941 and ’42. Alsab. Ur. Cornelius Cann reminds you of this chatting with Alex Bower of The Blood Horse. Dr. Cann at 85 is the dean of t h o r o u g hbred v e t e r i narians, gelded Old Rose bud, Ex terminator and j Clyde Van Du sen, each of which went on to win tne Kentucky Derby. Odly enough, Dr. Cann, who has seen every Derby since Done rail bounced down in front in 1913 as the longest-price winner in the history of the event, did not see Man O' War. Big Bed did not go to the Derby. "But Man o’ War never did what Alsab did,” says Dr. Cann. "Alsab ran 22 times on 12 differ ent tracks as a two-year-old, went a mile in 1:35 2-5. The next spring Alsab was put in training too soon, but he ran second in the Derby, and won the Preak ness the following week. The next thing I knew they had matched him with Whirlaway, a three-year-old against a four year-old which was the champion of the United States, and he beat him at a mile and three-six teenths. And he beat him again at two miles and a quarter.” Like Dr. Cann, this reporter did not have the good fortune to see Man o’ War ramble. With due respect to Alsab, how ever, the greatest running horse I ever saw came along a year after the fine son of Good Goods. That w'ould be Count Fleet, which reduced the mile record for a juvenile established by 4d" sab, to 1:34 4-5, and the next year mopped up the Triple Crown by doing the mile-and-a-half of the Belmont Stakes in 2:28 1-5, never hustled and without a horse mak ing a run at him. Bewitch, which went into The Futurity at Belmont Park shoot ing at Top Flight’s seasonal money-winning record for a filly, appears to be black and is ex cept for the technical require ments of registration.

I Army, Illinois Battle To 0-0 Tie TIDE ROLLS WITH GILMER OUT OF TILT TUSALOOSA, Ala., Oct.11.— (U.R) — Alabama, with Hurlin Harry Gilmer resting on the bench, bulldozed through a sweating 'IDuquesne eleven, 26 to 9 here today before 25,000 fans. The Crimson Tide, using every man on the squad, tossed only two passes, one of these incom plete and the other intercepted. Alabama’s heavy line soon tired out a young Duquesne team in the 85 degree weather and on a turf made steamy by a heavy Dre-eame shower. The starting Pittsburgh eleven, led by Vince Sundry made its bid early in the first period. The group drove to the Alabama six yard line. Harry Gilmer, being saved for the slugfest in Birmingham next week with Tennessee, came in in the closing minutes of the first half just before the Tide scored its first touchdown. However, Harry handled the ball only once, getting two yards off right guard. Lowell Tew, the keg-legged fullback, opened up the 67 yard drive with a 24 yard sweep around right end. Right half Bill Cadenhead scored the touchdown with a five yard drive over right tackle with 40 seconds to play in the first half. Morrow converted to give Alabama a 7 to 0 lead at the half. Monk Moseley, Gilmer’s sub, clinched the victory in the third period with a nifty 58-yard re turn of Joe Gottlieb’s punt. Sundry, who got the best hand from the crowd of any player on the field when he was taken out late in the game, slipped and fumbled on his own four yard line. Alabama end Bob Hood re covered and in three line smashes fullback Norwood Hodges bounc ed over. Third and fourth teams, led by freshman Ed Salem and Bill Hicks, drove 72 yards for the final marker.

Neither team could spring loose any of their swilt running backfield men for a score. The scoreless battle, sharpjy reminiscent of Army’s historic 0-to-0 tie with Notre Dame last season in the same ball park, enabled both these Titans of the gridiron to keep their records unblemished. The Cadet forward wall time and again threw back the threatening Illini,- who had a shade of an advntage in offen sive power. And when the chips were"stacked high in the infield of the house that Ruth built, the defending champions from the Big Nine halted every Army drive. That was the simple story ot the game, with the Cadets thus rolling along undefeated for the fourth year with a record of 31 games without defeat. The only two blotches are the Notre Dame deadlock of last year and this stalemate. For Illinois it marked their ninth game with out defeat. As Army fought off defeat with several stands deep in its own territory the Cadets uncov ered a punting surprise in little Ed Gradoville of Plattsmouth, Neb. Moved off the reserves this week, his booming punts and quic ics time and again pulled Army out of trouble. And for the plugging Illini, the standouts were fullback Russ Steger and halfback Dwight Ed dleman, two big guns who bat tered Army’s unflinching line as Perry Moss tossed the aerials which m ue Illinois a constant threat. Illinois drove then to Army territory in the second period and, giving up the ball, pushed the Cadets back to their 15. Again it was Gradoville, quic icinsr to the Illini 24 and a penalty put the Rose Bowl champions back on their nine. Just before the haT ended. Il linois drove 63 vends, the best seven. With seconds remaining, the Iltini tried a field goal, but a bad pasc from center ruined that honn.

WIN FROM FURMAN COLUMBIA, Oct. 11 — W — Fleetfooted Ernie Lawhorne and the Droopy Atwell to Red Wil son pass combination scored two touchdowns apiece here today to give the University of South Carolina a 26-8 Southern Con ference football victory over Fur man. A crowd of 13,500 homecoming fans saw the ragged contest as the Gamecocks overcame an early two-point Furman lead and marched relentlessly over the hapless Hurricane, whose never got going. Furman picked up a safety early in the first period when Preacher McQueen and Lee At kinson tackled Atwell in the South Carolina end zone. The Furman touchdown also came early when center George Byrd snagged a South Carolina pass and raced 48 yards with the in terception to score. South Carolina scored its first touchdown on a 24-yard pass from Atwell to Wilson, climaxing j an 86 yard drive. The Gamecocks came right back with another tal ly when Furman was stopped after the kickoff and punted. At well took the kick, reversed to Lawhorn and the speedy half back went 45 yards for the score. The Gamecocks added one touchdown in the second pent after Wilson recovered a Furman fumble on the Furman 44. Law horn passed 34 yards to Bob O’Harra and two plays later At well connected with Wilson in the end zone. The final score came in the third period on a 46 yard drive that ended when Lawhorn went 21 yards through the line for the tally.

Oct. 11.—(U.» —Rice Institute’s football team, a disappointment in its first two starts, began living up to pre season promise today, routing a bewildered Tulane University eleven 33 to 0 before 28,000. The Rice victory was expected, but not by such a margin, and coach Jess Neely's Owls surprised even their fondest admirers with a furious outburst of power. So strong was the Rice defense that Tulane never got inside the Owl 35-yard line. The Houston ians pushed the New Orleans eleven off balance in the opening minutes and began their con tinuing march. Slippery Georgie Walmsley got a 16-vard run to the Tulane half-yard stripe and big Virgil Eikenberg snaked through the middle from the quarterback spot on the next I Play. The Scintillating Walmsley, one of the lightest men on the team at 163 pounds, slithered through the Green Wave eleven times for a net of 121 yards—an average of 11 a carry. The rice scoring chores were well divided with Huey Keeney in the forefront. He did a dizzy sideline dance for 30 yards and one touchdown and hit Tobin Rote with a pin-point pass for another. Walmsley, who missed one touchdown by inches in the open ing series of plays, got his six pointer later by capping a 72 yard downfield march, shedding three tacklers as he skirted his right end.
