THE NEWS SCIMITAR PAGE FIFTEEN. TRAP, ROD AND GUN BY TOM MARSHALL. "Where fish hare wings and fly." Imagine th surprise of an Inland water angler or fisherman If a small mouth ban could emerge from the water, set his wings and gracefully fly In midair a distance of J00 yards, to again take water ready for a dry fly or seductive minnow. In company with my old friend (world's champion wrestler) (Tank Gotch as a running mate, we headed for Santa Camllna, magio isle of the blue Pacific, day dream and mecca of all coast tourists and fish ermen. En route across the 26-mile cnamiel, our boat was convoyed by a large colony of gulls, wise but wary cormorants followed our boat's wake. A las y brown pelican crossed our bow at low elevation, in quest of finny lill- ' inf for his capacious pouch or empty maw. Porpoise and shark gracefully disported, topping the wave crests of those gentle, undulating ground swells. Many flying fish, about 14 Inches long, I sprung from the water on their aerial flights, covering In many Instances a distance of 200 yards. Their gauze wings scintillated In the sunlight, their forked tails at intervals tapped the crest of a wave, accelerating their flight W many Instances flying fish were evading tuna, albacore, or some other deep water denizen, as they . rushed after them Just below ma sur- ' face and directly beneath the flyer. At Avalon we boarded a glass-bottomed boat, which enables one to vis ually delve Into the innermost and In ternal secrets of Old Neptune, gazing directly down Into "Davey Jones" lockers. We ran out over the subma rine gardens, where beds of iodine kelp are suspended In the water by ollve ehaped air bubbles. You marvel and wonder at the marine gardens or aquatic forests. Blue crystal waters of the Pacific enable you to see down and distinguish at a distance of 60 feet different phases of aquatic life and veg etation. Iodine, ribbon and sea grape kelps. Feather boa, sea kelp, sponge coral mosses. Fishbone, maiden hair and chiffon ferns, the arena of itf represented by fish of the following varieties: Bass, octopus, j.,y us,), ca porcupine, shark, perch i f .the gold. blue, green, silver and con vict brands. An occasional one-claw lobster threads his way around tha rocks. All to be seen through the boat a glass bottom, where fish swim complacently about, undisturbed by the purr of propellers. Our boat jogged on down on the seal rockB, where seal have become chum my and aro seen at a very close range, 'i he following day Gotch and I essayed a fishing trip after- albacore with "Shorty" acting official boatman. We were trolling about three miles off Moonstone beach, with no success. "Shorty" located a colony of gulls about a half mile to the west and headed his boat , in that direction with an assur ance we would find a school of fish at that point, explaining that birds were there feeding on small fish, who had rushed to the surface in an effort to avoid larger fish below. Upon our ar rival "Shorty" threw overboard a show er of sardines from the bait box, which slowly descended to be seen a very considerable distance down. Albacore darted about In every direction in quest of our lure, 'i nis semiteeaing is aes letiated by CataDna fishermen as "chumming" the school. While alba core were rushing out .-chums" Gotch and I were industriously i baiting our hooks and getting them overboard. An albacore immediately rushed my bait. I aaw him coming; he struck, taking the lure with a gulp, his hungry associates rushing a good second. My line became taut, reel sang a lullaby, my leather thumb braks or drag was pressed hard down. The silver beautv for a second rested, only to get a better start. A number of direct snubs induced a sea son of "sulking" on his part. Setting the butt of mv nole in a socket. I com menced "pumping" him toward the surface. During his rushes feet were lost where I had before gained inches. 'My muscles were at tension, aching with fatigue. It was unethical and against angler usage to shout for help; It would only invito derision. Kvery move Dy mv fish could be seen, enablins me to anticipate his tactics. , Repeatedly the long-finned scrapper was almost to, the boat. The sight ot snortys lace ana fear of the raff would again Out him in irinzlei action. The fighting power of both fish and self were growing less aHjireKKive Tom fatigue. When I final ly landed him within gaffing distance, 4,1 pounds of meat landed aboard I was all in. Alter listening 10 nis tan lac tod in the sheet Iron receptacle a few minutes I again baited up, had a strike and went to work. Before the school was dismissed, we had landed seven of those fighting beauties, averaging 27 pounds,' Uotch having four to nis credit MARSHALL'S QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. I am a boy 11 year old. Am very anxious to learn to handle and shoot a gun, which you say is right. All of us boys read your articles. Mother doesn't think 1 am old enough and says It Is a dangerous line of sport. If I get a gun, would you buy a 12 or Id size? FRED M LEAR. Rock Island, 111. You are too young to go afield with n gun alone or with small companions, hut not too young to learn to handle and shoot under the instruction of an older and experienced person. Tell your mother the percentage of accidents with a gun, based upon the number handling, are less than in any line of sport. My advice is the purchase of a gun would be to get a 12 gauge, not too light, as that invites recoil. You will soon learn to shoot under an experienced instructor. What are the chances for a good flight of ducks this fall? Has there been any sports from the Canadian fields? DAVE CL A RIDGE. Aurora, III. The reports are very meager. The season up to date for young birds has been very propitious. An abundance or mast ana leeu Is assured, nence it is safe to say we will have a good flight of migratory birds this fall.

Is Chief Bender, the. ball player, a real Indian? To what tribe does he belong? Are Indians, as a class, good shots? Is Bender good enough to shoot with experts like Gilbert. Crosby or Helkes JAMES T. BROWN. Los Angeles, Cal. Chief Albert Bender Is a sure enousn Indian of the Chippewa tribe, carrying all the marks of the noble red man. He was born In Minnesota. Trapshooting is his real hobby and he is ever ready to quit all other sports to have a try at the elusive "tar-hawks." Indians as a class, are not considered accurate shots, especially on the wing. Their knowledge of woodcraft, animal habits and ability to stalk their game, en ables them to get close and secure a standing or "pot" shot, which usually gets the meat. Chief Bender is Hn expert wing shot and will show to ad vantage in any company or aggrega tion of experts. He has most excellent Judgment of distances and wing ve locity, has an eye like a hawk, and his baseball experience has taught him to easily concentrate. He has an Ut ter absence of self-conciousness or ner vousness, which has been the rock upon which so many shooters' ambitions It Is Said That Little Tommy Tucker Sang for His Supper!
