Los Angeles Fishermen and String of Trout They Caught TOP ROW, LEFT TO RIGHT—ERNEST KLOKKE, GUS KNIGHT AND LEE GARNSEY BOTTOM ROW—STRING OF TROUT THEY CAUGHT (ON LEFT), AND ADOLPH SCHWARTZ AND LEE GARNSEY TROUT ANGLERS HAVE GOOD LUCK Disciples of Izaak Walton Well Satisfied with Season of 1910 BIG FISH ON EXHIBITION Local Casters Visit Bear Lake Country and Return with Full Creels Trout ia a word to conjure by. You nay awaken an angler to tales galore If you but whisper the name of the much-sought-after denizen of the cool er pools and shady recesses of our mountain creeks. There is no more refreshing sport for the man of af fairs or the man of leisure than the pursuit of the game of [saak Walton. Kxpert fisherman you may be, or only a sorry amateur, with frequent trouble In guiding your files away from the overhanging branches and casting them where they may do the most good, but, amateur or past master of the .sport, you will always remember the days ppent in angling, the pursuit of the most elusive inhabitant of the water, a test of skill and a battle with a lively prize, and the homeward tramp with a full creel and a ravenous appetite, i The 1910 season, starting out with a rush, brought luck to many and disap pointment to few. Barring some of the trout stations where the beaten path lias walked too) long, and a few of the colder pools where the fish are still spawning, the story has been the same, "A great year for trout." Two of the largest of the much desired fish, ex hibited in a local sporting goods store window, have exceeded any records of the past two seasons, one being 28 inches and the other 24 Inches. From the lust of the current month reports have been favorable from all the fishing quarters, and the game has grown in favor thereby. Many of the more eas ily discouraged, having experienced their lirst curiosity pangs of the sport, have now repacked their rods and reels end taken up a recreation more depend able in its results. The home pools are no longr camping grounds;, and the per capita baskets have therefore increased. One Of the most popular of the local trout resorts has been the Bear valley country, nestled among the San Ber nardino range and fed from the cool springs of the highest of the western peaks. A party consisting of inest Klokke, Gus Knight, Adolf Schwartz, Lee Garnsey and the latter's puff-wag on set out shortly after the season was under way for the San Bernardino fish resorts and made a week of II around the big creek. The course followed was up the Cajon road, by way of Victor vine, coming up on the other side, of the San Bernardino range into the Bear Lake country. Their stand for the first cast was ii out a half mile below the Bear i 'rek dam, and the nibbles soon become bites. One day's angling brought them the limit In weight, al though they had a nunibi to spare on the fifty limit. All v re loud In the praise of tho Walton game, and swore great oaths to forßake tin sad sea waves hereafter for the open side of the season and follow the reul side of the sport. .» » » CAR WHEELS SEVER HOSE, AND F!RE DESTROYS HOME Fire starting from un overturned lamp destroyed tlio house owned and occupied by Mr?. 1,.

McLnughlin and Long. May Be included on American Squad NEW Y/ORK, May 21.—American! have evinced early this season a keen and absorbing interest regarding the details of the United States National Lawn Tennis association's challenge for the Dwight p. Davis international cup. There are several reasons for this desire to know what is being accom plished in the way of sending- a worthy team of representatives of this coun try In r|iie»t of the world-famous tro phy. The widening circle of lawn ten nis Interest in this country is center ing attention upon the executive cotn mttti c of the national association. The followers of the sport—and among this number are thousands who never will be recorded as members of clubs and organizations in alliance with Die gov erning body in this country— are be< om« ins more inclined to hold the officials n sponsible for any shortcomings than heretofore lias been the case. They ba- I lieve that no half-way measures should be taken tip do all that is possible to return the cup to this country, and that anything short of real sportsmanlike proceedings In the accomplishment of this greatly deaired result la to he frowned upon, ami If possible taken into account at the annual election of other executive committees. Under the conditions which have sur rounded the cup since the two peerless Australians Anthony K. Wilding and Norman K. Brookes—won the trophy at Wimbledon, In 1907, Jt is a little early to determine the makeup of the challenging team, and all other impor tant details, for the actual cup matches ar away off at the tail end of the year, in the last of November or the first of Dec< tnber. It may therefore be taken as a fair Indication of a deter mined effort to strike a winning blow for the rot 10n o£ the cup thin year that it is now known that Deals C. Wright, an American of wide experi ence on the courts In both England and Australia, Is to lead the American team. Furthermore, the historic courts at Wimbledon, London, are to be tin* scene of the preliminary ties between the Americans and thn British Isles teams, instead of courts In thia country, and that again the leading players of this nai ion have refused to compete abi oad, MUST BE Ulll I' UP TO WBIOHT While, taken altogether, the results so far obtained may not be entirely ■ ictory to the Ameri an lawn ten nis followers, it must be admitted that half the battle In the accomplishment of most undertakings is in learning the tatu: of the situation, and the ians now i now » here they stand in relation to this year's cup matches, . The team musl be built up to Heals Wright. Those who in the past have , eriticl great American player i i a willing to support him for his generous wlllini ne to give ids time and skill toward bringing hack the ■ trophy. The unfortunate .Id ■ of the situation appears to be the Inability of the top class of American players, not ablj William .\. Lamed, thn singles i Ion; William J. < 'lothier, former champion: Frederick ''■ Alexander, and Harold ii. Huckett, to take places on tlie team, and so making it a lerican, British isles or trallan supremacy. The majority of the players In this country have supi le confidence that Wright « ill work up to his top class form rti spite the fact that last season lie refrained from tournament compe tition, mid In fact played only a limited i mi of lawn tennis. Whether Wright is übove or below par still rn lo he demonstrated, and his early tournament performances are eagerly awaited.

I hat he N entitled to place and preference is admitted on all sides; this more es pecially as he defeated Melville H.

SHOWS MUCH TBMPKB In that contest the Californian dis played unpleasant attributes of tem per which caused him to be severely criticised at the time and in one othi r tournament Of the year Long man! tested a disposition toward 111-consid ered actions that makes him an un ei rtain factor in a close and trying match. Hia conduct In thlH respect is in strong contrast to that of Johnson, who has well learned ids lesson of holding himself under control even un der the most exasperating circum stances. moiui D, Little has been consjd i member of the team with Wright, but among those who have watched Little closely tor the last two us the opinion is that the best and wisest course will be to try young er men, as Uttle is playing consider ably lieloW the fOrm he Otiee d|.ph:Ved. indeed there u> fi generally expi belief that a Kreat mistake uill be ni,ule if Little is included in the team, md that ir lie is selected it will he more because of past Klory than upon his skill at the present time The American ulayers eligible for the cup team therefore narrow to Maurice : F.

Dlxon, W. C. C'rawley and Capt. . J. C, Parks, the British Isles team, on ■ the turf of the Germantown Cricket club, Philadelphia. The two Californians and Wright seem at the time, to be the program, l with the possible nomination also of : Wallace P. Johnson or Raymond D. Little, as the rules allow of four men constituting the team that may repre sent a challenging nation. The two Caltfornians under consideration will, in a short time, begin the round of . championship and tournament play In the ast, that leads up to the nationals at the Casino at Newport, it. I. From reports from the Pacific coast bpth have greatly Improved since their sen sational debut here a year ago. Optimistic admirers predict that the foremost eastern wlelders of the rac quet are to receive a rude shock and surprise which will end one of the Oalifornians holding the all-comers na tional title. If either Mclaughlin or Long can make good on such predic tions, then the plans that ate making for the American part of the Davis cup matches can not be Improved upon in any way. . The important feature of the Amer ican preparations Is that the team of players who go out to meet the British Isles teams on the Wlmbleton courts know that they must bo- prepared to journey on to Australasia In the event of victory in the tie matches. There Is to be no chancing of teams this sea sun, according to the statement of one member of the executive committee. The scheme of one team to defeat tho Britons and another for the Austral asians will not he rep,mi,.,| to cast Odium Upon the national body find tho government of the .sport in this coun try. Carefully considered, the efforts to ward securing the best team thai American! can put In thp field are thus early being directed with a degree of sportsmanlike Intelligence that has not always been prominent in lawn tennis affairs, anil thus meet with the apro batlon of followers of the game, where its stimulating presence will act as a magnet in bringing teams from many nations to American courts.
