Mr. Yates, .who will have charge ol
all sports and athletics at the air sta-J

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

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

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

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
The catch was landed and at the time'
the newspapers were filled with stories

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.
