Ace Speedboaters Ready for Provo Water Festival Harmon Slates Test Run At Carnival Action, thrills, spins And high class entertainment will be wrapped wrapped up In one giant package today, •when the Provo Boat Club sponsors sponsors a speedboat regatta and water show at the boat harbor. The four-hour show will begin at 2 p.m. and there will be seven and-a-half water carnival. Quotes About Fishin' Talking fishin' being a most popular pastime at this season, we pause here to make a few quotes picked up along the way. Since they were not written verbatum as they spilled toward our oversized ears, we digress to say that ours is the bla^ne for any grammatical errors and no Intent to misconstrue the meaning. (As if anyone could concerning a fishin'fib). Bruce Miller and Sherm Jones: "Ain't that a dandy mess. Caught 'em on worms this morning on the Provo above Deer Creek." They were too, as we saw them early last week when the boys stopped by the homestead at Vivian Park- Bill Ke'.sch: "Just got back from four days down on the Boulder Mountain. Boy was it hot. All the waters are low, but the fishing wasn't too fast for us. Did get enough to eat anyway." Bill went on to say that he had a whale of a good trip in company with Don Sims, Arvid Dodge, and the four of their boys. Lil' Abner: "Never saw Deer Creek Reservoir stay so good for so long as it has this year. Trolling and bait fishin' are still tops." Could Ab be a bit prejudiced? Lousy Perch Tom Anderson: "No luck on Deer Creek this year, except for those lousy perch." A host of others: "No place like Deer Creek for taking the kids to fish. Why the kids had the time of their lives hauling perch out the other evening." Mike Smoot: "Knocked 'em silly with a streamer the other evening where the Provo dumps Into Deer Creek. Prettiest mess of rainbow you ever saw. Went back the board runabout." next two evenings and caught nothing but big carp." Ed and Marion Rambeau: "Nothing to it now out Strawberry Strawberry way. We found the rainbow in about 45 feet of water at the north end. No trouble limiting up the last two week ends with crawlers." Dale Hill: "You named the wrong guy in the paper last Sunday when you told of catching the 7^4 pounder in the Provo. I was the one who got him. Have caught some pretty good ones since t»o." Our apologies Dale. This 13-year-old boy could well show many of us some tricks on the river, especially near his home at Vivian Park. Welby Brown: "Never had a bite on Strawberry. 'Course, we didn't get out there until after noon and the old pond never was too hot before July 24th." So goes the chatter ad infinatum on the Fishin'. Always Always interesting, and who knows, maybe someone gives you a hint in the process that might prove worth listening to. Fishing Equipment We recently read a list of proposed .equipment to go in kit or tackle box along with the fishing gear. Since most of it is stuff that we've found to be valuable when needed (and clutters up our tackle box), here it is for your thinking; thinking; small screw driver; sharp knife, combination pliers and wirecutters, whetstone, adhesive tape, aspirin, iodine, band aids, lubricating oil (real oil), and mosquito lotion. Add to this list as we have over the years and pretty soon you almost need another box for the extras. Never-the-less, many of these items mean the difference in a pleasant trip Tom * I The Provo Boat Harbor win I be closed to boating by the i general public aann* the I Provo Boat Club's water show | and regatta schedule today | from 2 p.m. until shortly after Gessford is serving as general chairman for the show, which will be free to the general public. As an added attraction for the big water festival, Cam Harmon veteran Brigham City rpeedboat jockey, will try an experimental test run with his P-Hydro boat. Harmon plans on going after the world's record later in the year at Salton Sfea in California and will use today's run to see how close he's coming to the record. The world's record for this class is 79.4 miles per hour and the American record 78.44 miles per hour. Harmon has done 73 miles per hour. Some of The Best The competitive speed-boating will feature races In the following classes: A and C stock runabout, C service and D and E stock runabout, runabout, B stock runabout, C racing and D stock hydroplanes, F. racing runabout and CR runabout.

Odds and Ends More than ten million Americans pay dues to organizations organizations pledged to maintain and restore our wildlife resources resources ... Best insurance for the long life of your fishing pole is to carry it in a good case . . . Check your hooks now and then. A dull hook often means a missed strike—a few strokes with a small whet stone will quickly sharpen them ... If you want your leader to sink quickly, wash it with a piece of abrasive soap . . . Good reports about fishing continue continue to come in from Scofield Reservoir, both from trolling and worm dunking . . . Our hopes for walleyed pike fishing in Utah Lake were recently raised when we saw a couple of last year's plant of these fish. They were 4-5 inches long and there in a good chance many did survive. Yours for fun, Casey P. S. Provo sportsmen have an opportunity next Tuesday to cast their vote once while serving themselves twice. We refer to the sewer bond election to be conducted that day. Each vote in support of the bond issue means a vote for a cleanec. healthier life. It also means a vote for better fishing, hunting, and total outdoor recreation. Show ua clean, clear water and we'll show you better fishing and hunting. Swimming too, by the way, and a vote for the community swimming pool will also be a vote well cast*. Although some of the best drivers drivers in the intermountain west will be spinning their boats around the course today, Gessford said all local amateur boaterst are urged to enter their crafts in the various events. He added that a place will be made for all types and classes of boats, so competition will be fair and keen.

They include Elmer Smith, pit manager; L. O. Turner, starter; Mrs. L. O. Turner, time keeper and scorer; Bernus Bills,, referee; and Lynn LeVitre and Frank Coppin, announcers. announcers.

' '_j NEW YORK (UP)—Is It midsummer midsummer madness? Or do Jack Dempsey and his three associates know what they're talking about when they say they'll have young Brian Kelly ready for a lightweight lightweight title fight next year? Kelly is the Irish kid from Niagara Falls, Oni, who upset sensational young Ralph Dupas of- New Orleans at Miami Beach last Tuesday night. Brian went into the ring a 5-1 underdog, but he came out • with the decision. And he even had Dupas on the floor once. v If Kelly's prowess is on a par with the money, influence and savvy backing him, he should go far. Dempsey's associates in the Kelly-to-title enterprise are Eddie Quinn, wealthy Montreal boxing and wrestling promoter; Max Waxman, Dempsey's business manager, and Joe Woodman, 81- year-old pilot-trainer, who man flock of other big-timers. Quinn said today, "we're not trying to make money with this boy. Qet that straight. And we're not going to rush him. But he'll be ready for his title chance next year. And I'm ready to spend $30,000 or $40,000 to see that he gets that chance." He was referring apparently to a guarantee for Champion Jimmy Carter or whoever holds the 135- pound crown next summer. aged the great Sam Langford and Quinn, Waxman and Woodman had a long conference. at • tttw York hotel last night about X*Uf*l future plans.

Scouts participating will include Charles Peterson, Douglas Sampson, Don Clark, Paul Hoopes, Richard Barrett, Brent Beck, Larry Nelson, DeRay Norton, Norton, and Gordon Startup.

High water and flood conditions conditions have hampered boating at the harbor for the past year and a half. elk application moneys as well as to streamline the whole procedure covering the office work and the public drawings. "Every person, while hunting big game animals, shall wear conspicuous conspicuous red headgear, and red shirt, sweater or Jacket." This new law requiring the wearing of red outer clothing other than a red head covering while hunting elk, deer, or other big game animals was placed in the new fish and game code during the 1953 meeting meeting of Utah state legislature.

Mauser, 308, 303 British, and 7.62 Russian. This Board of Big Game Control ruling was made in the interest of reducing the number of elk that are wounded and lost to the hunter. Sportsmen planning to apply for one of the 1500 elk permits allocated allocated by the Board this year should check application dates and other* regulations concerning this hunt before making application.
