Athletic Director of Note Arrives - - A athletic director of the Commlt jtee'"oa Training Camp Activities, David -J. Yates, has arrived at-the Naval Air ' Station, and will take charge of ath- ... letics at the Pensacoia station. Mr. Yates, who will be permanently ' located at Pensacoia, volunteered for "service, immediately upon declaration of war, but failed to" pass the physi cal examinations througTi nme minor defect. Determined to aid his country. he offered his services through the training camp activities of the navy. and arrived In . Pensacoia a Tew days ago to assume his duties. Mr. Yates, .who will have charge ol all sports and athletics at the air sta-J tion, was connected with the athletics t of a number -of colleges and hlgn high schools of this country. While a student at St. John's Brooklyn, New ''York, he was prominent in college ath . letics, and was later director at Swarth more, as well as the New Rochelle High , 'School,, and the Horace Mann School ot New York City. . :' For three years after leaving college, , he played professional baseball, hav-j . ing been at one time with the New York 1 Americans, and having also played . with the Newarks (International) ancr -several minor leagues. Mr. Yates has! ; filso engaged extensively in aquatic! I mports, and at one time had as a cqm-j - petitor C. M. Daniels, former champion, swimmer. During college days he was ralso noted at a basket ball and foot-: .ball player, and for three years was director of a boy's summer camp in ; New Hampshire. Several of the New York capers have carried very flattering notices of Mr J , lales and his work, and he comes to the Pensacoia station very highly reo-j , ommended. I -i In speaking of his plans for the ser Tiice men yesterday, Mr. Yates said: Nothing Js more necessary to the de velopment of the men than directed physical exercise, and it is proposed to promote all athletic activities, swim ming, baseball, basket ball, track meets and boxing matches all to have their place on the program. "Thpr is nnthinor mnra Imnnrtant in " the aviator than trained muscles mus L clcs which quickly respond, and eyes that are trained. Boxing bouts and . baseballfl train the arm AT-i the eye to; act qhiekiy and together."" .'. Thcrejs a Tine recreation building at; the Air fctntion, and the parade ground, " now . in "process of completion, will "mntc an admirable, athletic field. Ba- fore entering the service of the navy, ' Mr. Yates was sales manager of the V. K. Jahn Chemical Brokers, Import- 1 ers and Exporters, of New York City, j Mr. Yates will be ably assisted by a. champion gymnast and former athlete, B. F. Moore. Mr. Moore is a fine eriming-trark meet, 'to take place on flrrnratinn rav. MONSTER FISH IS SEEN BY CROWDS Captain Bennie Edmundson Saturday afternoon stated that he would have t-a make a contract with a lumber com-j pany for new flooring material if Cap-! tain Charles JI. Thomnsnn. thi prhihi-' rtor of the big fish and other specimens of deep sea life, stopped much longed at his dock on the trim yacht Tamiaml. Saturday morning Captain Thompson ..and his sea complement arrived in Pen sacoia and at 10 o'clock had warped at the landing of Captain Edmundson. From that hour on there were con courses of people to see one of the wonders of. the ocean, a monster fish. Just what it is scientists cannot tell. The nastodon has been under the in spection of experts of the national museum at Washington, D. C.; also men versed la fish lore attached to tlie bu reau, of fish and fisheries at the nat ional capital.- In fact one scientist of the Smithsonian Instution mounted the iisn, mat is after its life" was extinct. Captain Thompson yesterday said it was caught by accident in 1912 between Miami and Key West, Florida, while he' and a party of friends were trying to hook tarpon. , The fish came to the sur face of the water near the ouUng party , and Captain Thompson threw a harpoon at it. His aim was cond hut he essayed more than he bargained. For About thirty-nine hours the men in his party were dragged. miles about -the waters by this monster.. As an au- dience there, was about 1,000 people, at odd times, witnessing the struggle. The fish was finally made captive but life was about extinct. And the fishingcrew was also about reaflv to quit. j The catch was landed and at the time' the newspapers were filled with stories about lt ; Skeptics would not believe what they read. It was then that scien tists of the Smithsonian Institute were failed in and one of them mounted the fish. It Is well worth seeing. It has a mouth large enough to swallow al of the Jonah family, as far as the family tree extends, going and coming. It is well preserved and Its tongue would rnake VMaggie" of "Bringing up Father fame subside. In connection with this fish is an exhibit of sea life which Is interesting snd instructive. The specimens are too Minierous to specify. Captain Thompson will be here until Tuesday, when he goes to Mobile, thene to New Orleans and up the Mis sissippi River to the inland river land ings. The fish and other attractions can be seen from 10 o'clock in the morning until 10 o'clock at night. JOE JACKSON DRATTED FOR ARMY SERVICE GREENVILLE. S. C. May yl8.
