Dick come up with a new word last week—'gar- ganluous'—so I went and looked it up in a dictionary. Well, fellers, that's a word that sure 1 applies to me, and I hope it applies to all the fish you catch. Fishing ain't slartin' out quite like that, seems like. Had a fisher feller in t'other day and he said a whole boatload of fisher guys caught 16 fish in a morning. Total weight of all fish was 4 Ibs. Wonder what it would cost to buy that much fish at a fish counter. \ Say, fishers, we got in them swell Langley Reels—that's the name it sez on 'em. They're real lite-weight just like the tish you guys been catching. Tell me the champ caster used this Langley reel at the JDes Moines sports show, and 'we sure are proud' to have 'em. We been, sellin' this fishing stuff like crazy. It looks like the way We been passin' fishing tackle out, that I can get caught on a hook just as good here in Barry's as out in sum 'ol leaky, boat. And. speakin' of crazy, you oughlia see sum of the crazy names on these plugs. There's one called "Lazy Ike"— it's .as crazy-lpokin' as this column. Costs - $1.25, comes from Kauizky's in Fort Dodge. Jest had an offer from a group of fishers to go fishin' with 'em up north. But, heck, .there's always sum guy along who wants to-fish/' •' Come in and see how dum I am on this fishin' bizness. It's worth it,for a laff. • BILL BARRY, JR. * BARRY'S,. RECREATION Tues..- Wed., April 27-28 A Thousand Wild Mustangs Stampede—To The Thunder of Rustler Guns! Tim Holt in Zone Grey's "WILD HORSE .

The play is built in such a way that the evidence of the defendant's guilt or ihnodence is' evenly balanced and the decision will have to be based bh the jufof's own feelings toward the case, upon the juror's .own characteristics. The two parties opposed ,m the trial are as radically antagonistic as will be members of the audience and men and women who Will serve oh the jury Either decision will .bring the protest of the opposite side; the case will be a challenge bound to arouse arguments and discussion for its underlying conflict is the eternal conflict of two definite types of humanity.

At each performance she selected one juror in the box and concen, trated on him for the duration of the performance. She caught his eye at the beginning and held it for long periods or time. Her bet with Brecsc was to the effect that this particular juror would vote "not guilty". She. lost no bets. On one occasion Al Woods, producer of the play, decided to take" the law into his own hands and see once and for all whether he could swing a jury to a "guilty" verdict. Convinced in his own mind, that Karen Andre was guilty, the large preponderance of "not guilty" verdicts amazed and discouraged^ him- He served BOWLING WEDNESDAY NITES / All Si* Alleys For Open Bowling THURSDAY NITES All Alleys for' Open Bowling After S:30 P.M, Monday Thru Friday ' SATURDAY -SUNDAY All Alleys ; lor .
