, "So I guess Hoover was the best
fisherman of the three. He seemed
to know more about fishing to care
more about details. When he went
fishing, he was strictly in earnest.”
1 Hoovers sailfish was a fish they
still talk about. It measured just a
fraction of an inch under the 8 feet
that qualifies you for the gold but
ton of the Sail Fish Club. It weighed
ever 70 pounds, took close to an hour
to land.
"If Id ever known he was that
close.” says Capn Gray. "Id have
given his tail a little tweak on the
way in. Hed have been 8 feet all
Now President Roosevelt, who
off the Bah mus now on an
other expedition, isn't a serious fish
erman at all. In fact in two trips
with Captain Gray, the first in 1933,
i the second a year later, he not only
didn’t get a sailfish but he didn’t
even fish for them most of the time.
He was content with amberjack,
kingfish. barracuda and the like
not*to be mentioned in the same

He was a lot more fun to fish
i with, though," says the Cap n. "He’s
about the best natured fisherman 1
ever sailed. He was laughing and
joking all the time. I guess he en
joyed himself so much he didn't care
whether he got fish or not. Early
on the last trip he strained the
muscles in his left arm ‘horsing in
kingfish. so he never did get a sail
bait over."
Harding, who fished regularly
with the cap'n, "didn't give a hoot"
about it

Three development* added Friday
to the worries of house democratic
leaders who already were having to
exert unusual efforts to speed the
Roosevelt administration’s old-age
pension and Job-insurance bill
They were:
1. Reports that a modified Town
send pension plan was being draft
ed and would be offered at the
psychological time, probably Just
before the house takes up the ad
ministration bill.
2. An assertion by Rep. Martin of
Massachusetts, a republican leader,
that the G. O. P. house members
“will have a conference" shortly on
the administration's measure.
S. The fact that Rep. Isabella
Greenway fD-Arixi has obtained
more than 60 democratic signatures
on a petition to force a party
caucus on the question of lifting
old-age pensions out of the ad
ministration bill and passing them
in a hurry, letting the other things
take a slower course.
The Townsend pension plan ori
ginally called for a 2 per cent tax
on all business transactions to fi
nance payments of t200 a month to
all persons over 60. Reports were
that this plan was being modified
to require pensions of “not more
than $200." with the added stipula
tion that any money not spent for
pensions should be used to retire
the public debt.

Bills Intended To
Keep U. S. from War
Will Be Introduced
WASHINGTON. March 39.—0Ph
Demands that America make Its
plans now to keep out of any fu
ture war among other powers re
ceived new emphasis Friday with a
disclosure that Chairman Nye <R
NDiof the senate munitions com
mittee is ready to offer tentative
bills to that end.
Although Nye did not disclose the
details, the bills were reported to
deal with foreign travel by Amer
icans in wartime, trade with belli
gerents and foreign loans. The aim
is to prevent the United States
being drawn into war through such
Already Bernard Baruch, New
York financier who headed the
World War Industries board, has
told the Nye committee that “no
national has the right to go into
the trouble zone and expect this
nation to back him if he gets into
Baruch, who was called back be
fore the senate committee for the
third day Friday to elaborate on
bis ideas, has said “it is most im
portant that this nation establish
neutrality laws.”
Meanwhile the drive to take pro
fits out of war was carried to a
new front with an announcement
sy Rep. Maverick <D-Tex» that he
urould introduce in the house anti
var-profits legislation along lines
favored by Nye.
It is understood that the Nye
neasure which Maverick said he
would offer the house “within a
few days," Is similar to the broad
taxation plan presented the senate
committee of John T. Flynn, eco
nomist and writer. Among other
things the Flynn plan would limit
Individual Incomes to $10,000 a year
In wartime.
Maverick, stocky Texan whose
family name became a word for
non-conformity, sharply criticized

offered by Chairman McSwaln (D

tee. flaverick Is a member of the
The McSwaln bill, among other
provisions would put a “celling" on

AMARILLO. March 29. UP)—'The
first of miniature man-made for
ests which the United States Forest
8ervlce hopes will check eroding
I winds which for an estimated 50.
000,000 yean hare swept the mid
west will be planted in the Texas
Panhandle this month.
Two strips, each half a mile long
will be planted before April 1, John j
D. Jones, of Wichita Falls, state di
rector of the plains shelterbelt
project, announces One will be
six miles west of Childress and the
other in Wheeler county between
Shamrock and Wellington.
Each strip will be 165 feet from
fence to fence with trees planted
12 feet apart over about 130 feet. |
Tallest-growing trees will be placed
in the middle, flanked by smaller
ones and at the extreme edges by
shrubby growth, creating a roof- *
like formation.
The tree belt program is getting I
away to a slow start in Texas be- !
cause of a lack of seedlings and.
the lateness in perfecting a state
organization. The next immediate
problem of shelterbelt officials will
be to make arrangements for seed
lings to be planted next year.
"Seed has been obtained and if
we can lease nurseries we will use
relief labor to raise trees.” Jones
Planting has started in Oklahoma
under the direction of George R
Phillips, state director. He and his
crew will be in charge of the Texas
planting this spring as his organi
ration Is more nearly complete
than the one in Texas.
The Texas-Oklahoma line splits
in half the present tentative shel
ter belt xone lor those stales. The
belt includes only the eastern part
of the Panhandle, embracing Lips
comb. Hemphill. Wheeler. Collings
worth and Childress counties and
the eastern sections of Ochiltree,
Roberts. Oray, Donley and HalL
The final designated area is to be
determined by soil and moisture.
As now planned shelterbelta
eventually will dot an areaRlO
miles aide extending from Tarns
to the Canadian border.
Initial plantings will be in the
most favorable locations and the
trees will be those common to the
localities. The government will
obtain a seven-year lease on each
strip with an option of buying at
the end of that period. Accurate
surveys and correct titles will be
Strips will be planted at right
angles to prevailing winds when
ever possible No trees will be
planted on grass or break lands,
only in cultivated areas where wind
erosion, augmented by year* of
one-way plowing, takes its heaviest
After nurseries are obtained the
next step will be to acquire strip*
and prepare them for planting
next December. January and Feb
ruary. Next years program will
not be announced definitely until
the 1936 appropriation is made
known. __
