handed without first straightening up
You'll need to many times practice
going into right and center fields for
short, twisting flies.
In tagging runners fear must be
eliminated. Try catching the ball and
applying it to the base stealer with
out losing any time.
In fielding grounders never "fight the
ball" but allow it to come to you
on a natural bound.
Keep on your toes everymlnute and
encourage your teammates by your
own fighting spirit.

THE PENSACOEA JOURNAL, FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 16, 1919.
FOLLOWER OF IKE
It will be recalled that The Journal
carried a report a few days ago of a
fishing trip, saying that M. J. White
returned from sueh a trip with sev
eral fine trout. It appears that- there
were others on this trip and that the
public announcement or Mr. wnite s
success has caused the green-eyed
monster to atmear on the scene. . In
fact The Journal's sporting editor waa
told todav that Mr. White naa oeen
accused of havirig1 a publicity agents
The discussion has waxed furious
and yesterday the following self-explanatory
letter was received:
"Editor, Journal. x
"Dear Sir; I am an American, born
and bred, and naturally believe in fair
play.! In your issue of the 14th, under
News Briefs." you say: M. J. wmte
had a successful fishing trip on the
bay yesterday, returning with several
fine trout." And that was all you said.
I do not wish to belittle Mr. Marco
White's fine catch, for I was there
when he was doing some really line
casting, and among the large trout
he causrht. I saw him bring in his
largest one which he says weighed 8?i
pounds. . '
"There were in the party two others
who helDed make the fishing1 trip
one of the most successful of the sea
son. I refer to ' perhaps the most
expert anglers in Florida waters, if not
in the United States, Messrs. Walter F.
Biggs and M. H. Luff, who I am sure

same name but I have forgotten his
"I am -too modest to make any big
claims as to the fish I caught for I
am not classed as an expert. I know
I am not in the same class with any
of the above gentlemen when it comes
to casting, but I will say that I brought
in four large trout, two horse mack
erel, and a red fish that weighed 14
pounds on the Sportmen's Supply Store

with a 'fly on my fly rod. v
"Messrs. Biggs and Luff put me in
the shade with their catches and I
will admit that Mr. White also beat
me badly. We are all in such good
humor over our successful trip that
none of us are jealous of the others
luck and no oi.e is mad. I just want
to let the public know the whole truth,
and I know that Mr. White, who
couldn't be anything but fair if he
tried, will be glad when he knows
that the public, and especially the
other sportsmen on the trip, have a
statement in your paper giving credit
to all for the success of . this fishing
