‘BAIT FOR FRESH WATER
Tarpon" headlines this story from
the Fort Isabel Pilot, that stem
and uncompromising exponent of
i truth in fish stories:
‘Two sawfish, one 18 feet and
one 16 feet, were caught by the
ciew of the schooner Dorothy while
shrimping off shore in the Gulf of
Mexico last Thursday. The fish
were brought into port here, and
after being displayed for a day,
their saws were cut off and their
remains consigned to the waters of
the deep.
“This is the type of fish usually
used for bait in fishing for fresh
water tarpon. This species of
. tarpon, in striking, are caught on
the bony saws of the bait, and thus
are landed. However, the two
brought in by the Dorothy were
somewhat small for bait for this
species of tarpon."

THE TROUBLE WITH COL.
Grider Perkins is one not uncom
mon among expferts when they get
cut of their own line and invade the
sacred precincts of the other fel
lows expertnesB.
Now Col Perkins is a self admit
ted expert on salt water fishing.
He knows all the kinks and quirks
of the game, and when it comes to
yarns about salt water tarpon, salt
fater redfish, salt water sawfish,
he is without a peer among the
members of the Rio Grande Valley
Ananias dub.
But he has waxed too bold.
Secure in his knowledge of the
habits of salt water fish, he has
seen fit to stick his finger in the
i fresh water fish business.
Colonel, these sawfish of yours
are all wet and too salt.
We of the fresh water tarpon
school recognise the potency of
sawfish as tarpon bait, but—
They must be fresh water saw
fish.
Colonel, you just ought to see a
fresh water sawfish.
It would bring tears to your
ancient eyes.
, the WORD ••TRUCKER" AS
used in the Valley is misleading
and is bringing some of our good
citizens into arguments with other
good citizens, when they both mean
the same thing.
Instead of using the word ‘ truck
er’’ as applied to everyone using a
truck to carry merchandise or fruit
and vegetables out of the Valley, let's
define it this way.
A trucker is one who carries fruit
and vegetables or other merchandise
i lor hire, filling the same relation to
the owner of the goods concerned
as does the railroad carrier.
And then let's say this:
A peddler trucker is one who
buys his fruit and vegetable cargo
as cheaply as he can and peddles
it the country over.
• • •
NOW WITH THOSE TWO DEFI
nitions firmly in mind, surely all
of us agree that there is no fight in
the Valley on the trucker.
It's the peddler who helps to
knock the whey out of prtces by un
| loading his stuff here, there and
everywhere at whatever he can get
for 1
When stuck with a truckload or
Dart of a truckload.
When folks from the Valley ask
♦hat the minimum load of trucks
be raised to 14.000 pounds, they are
Sinking of the trucker and how
the increased load .may enable him
£ cut what really are "freight"
^Thev are not thinking of the
-neddler” and how this increase
7 000 pounds in his minimum load
Sill enable him to still further de
moralize a great range of markets.
WE BELIEVE THAT THIS FAIL
i " to distinguish between the two
JSssk is responsible for the pres
“wS^h^tod* one * growers

Staimum truckload with no reser
V8And^nother set asking that the

Covington County Sheriff, u Told
to the Hattiesburg American
HATTIESBURG. Miss . March
29 i/Pj—Raymond Hamilton, the
Texas bandit, shot me in the back
of the head Thursday when two
deputies and I surprised him at a
negro cabin about 10 miles north
of Prentiss.
I am positive the man was Ham
ilton and the reason that I did not
attempt to shoot him is because at
that time it would have been sui
cide for me to have raised by hand
toward an automatic shotgun ly
ing the back of my car.
Joe Duckworth and Marshall
Magee, two Covington county de
puties and I drove into Jeff Davis
county to help hunt for the ban
dits.
We reached a short cut-off road
nine or ten miles from Prentiss
and found that both ends of the
road were blocked by posse men.
I agreed to drive down into the
"interior” and see if the robbers
were hidden there.
After going about half a mile
we arrived at a negro cabin. We
drove into the yard and an old
negro woman appeared. I asked her
if she had seen anything of two
men in a car and as she opened
her mouth to answer, an auto
mobile drove from behind the
house.
Two negro men were in the front
seat.
When this car came into sight
the negro driving it saw us and
stopped. At that Instant Hamilton
and his comrade, whom I did not
recognize, rose up from behind
the front seat and opened fire on
us.
A bullet from Hamilton's auto
matic nfle ripped off my hat and
creased the scalp In the back of
my head just as I turned to grab
my shotgun.
Just then another car arrived.
It contained County Agent M E.
Smith of Jeff Davis county and
Corley, a federal farm representa
tive.
These men were disarmed by the
bandits. At that moment a second
car drove up. This car contained
Tarver McIntosh, E. L. Dent and
Will Thomas.
Hamilton ordered these three
men to get out, throw down their
guns and hold up their hands.
Then, after collecting all of the
weapons. Hamilton ordered all of
his captives to get on the side of
the Smith car and Smith was told
to drive down the road.

Culbertson Says ‘Bah’ When
Sims Makes Freak Slam Bid
NEW YORK. March 29—oP>—
One freak hand and the simple
but astounding way P. Hal and
Dorothy Sims bid it was the sub
ject of much controversy Friday
as the Culbertson-Sims bridge
marathon of 130 rubbers swung
Into its eighth session and 29th !
rubber with* Ely and Josephine
Culbertson 2.330 points ahead.
“One club." said Dorothy Sims,
with the jack the only club in
her hand. iMrs. Sims is noted for
her psychics. >
"Pass," was all Culbertson had
to say.
1 “Seven clubs," said Sims, slow-’
ly but without hesitation.
Culbertson, startled, glanced at
bis bulky opponent
Mrs. Culbertson, smiling slight
ly. passed.
Mrs. Sims did, too. She was
tense and apparently dismayed.
“By the way. Hal," queried
Culbertson, arching his eyebrows,
“is this contract bridge we are
playing?"
Sims thought a moment and
chuckled. He shifted heavily in
1 his chair.
“I was under the impression It
might be pinochle." he answered.
1 Mrs. Sims moved nervteisly, as
• Culbertson opened with the club
deuce.
r Sims flipped eight club6 onto
the table, Including the ace. king
and queen.
Mrs. Sims captured the trick
with her lone jack.
She went ahead to play the
hand neatly, avoiding a heart
Iinesse which she could not af
ford to take, although It would
have succeeded.
She returned a small diamond,
trumped in dummy, which was
blank In diamonds and then
dropped the remaining trumps,
discarding a spade herself on the
second trump lead.
Two more rounds of diamonds
picked up Culbertson’s queen,
making her Jack good.
Culbertson was Incensed.
“I still dont believe there is
such a bid in any system, ’ he
said. "Even the Sims system. One
club—seven clubs. Bah."
Sims nodded agreement.
"I agree heartily with you, Ely,"
he said.
The Culbertsons have won 15
of the 28 rubbers played. The
count of aces and kings has been:
Culbertson. S74 aces and 398
kings.
Simses. 373 aces and 399 kings.
Until the 28th rubber, in which
they made the grand slam, Sims

points. They picked up 2970 points
on the rubber to cut the Culbert

In the Grand National ateeplechaee
Friday as Reynoldstown, a 22 to 1

Dorothy Paget s Golden Miller,

course. He fell soon alter, however.

Royal Ransom and Jesse Metcalfe's
HXiereas never got a« far as the
grandstand.
Golden Miller, carrying the top
weight of 175 pounds and which
went to the post the 3 to 7 favorite,
found the weight and pace too ex
acting. He fell at the lust fence
alter Valentine's Brook on the fir at
turn around the course. With his
euminauon went up groans from
the thousands of spe teat ora and
snouts of Joy from the oookmaken,
who stood to lose hundreds of thou
sands of dollars, as the lavonte nad
been coupled with Flamenco, win
ner of the Lincolnshire Wednesday,
in the famous "spring double.”

with the leaders from the start, be
ing in fifth place at the half-way
mark. He quickly moved to the
front and showed the way the sec
on.. time over Becher s Brook to
Thomond 2nd and Blue Prmce.
Three-Horse Race
%
At the canal turn the American
owned jumper took command of the
situation. From there to the final
stages, the race was a three-horse
affair.
In the final 303-yard dash to the
fmish line, however, Thomond 2nd
weakened badly while Furlong drove
Reynoldstown into the lead and
Jockey Parvln, up on Blue Prince,
moved up to make a futile chal
lenge. Wnen the three had finished
not another horse was in sight.
Reynoldstown was tuned in 9:31,
one second slower than the record
set by Golden MlUer last year.
Bostwick, who took a header from
i his horse but was not hurt, wee
downhearted over his ill-luck.
"Castle Irweil just blundered bad
ly at the canal turn on the second
ume around." said Peter. We were
fourth at the time and I believe
might have won as I had not let
him wit.”
In contrast Furlong, an amateur
rider, was Jubilant.
“I don't know how I won.” he
declared. We were obstructed by
I a loose horse on the very first Jump.
‘ I felt like standing up and shouting
» when we began to pull away In the

Whitney horse "simply didn't have
