THE INDIANAPOLIS STAR STRICTLY BUSINESS FRIDAY, JUNE 25, 1948 By McFeatters Business And Industry U.S. 'Big five' '48 NCAA Farm Outlook Good; U.S. Seed Men Told ' PAGIb -2S Lets Go Outdoors Fishing Fans Pick Their Own Methods By OLLIE BAt'S SOMEONE ONCE remarked that he didn't believe anyone should be considered an all-around fisherman unless he knew what the ecore was on all kinds of fishing. Well, maybe the guy's got something there but what fan really cares, anyway, whether he's rated it. But heaven forbid you being a "purist!" can not fail you nor posterity, even to the third and fourth generations. He cited dangers all too apparent from Communistic and other foreign isms which endanger our system of free enterprise today. DR. J. R. HOLBERT, general manager of Funk Brothers Seed Company, Bloomington, 111., and association president, reviewed the year's activities of the organization which represents a "billion dollar" industry and said: "Close to continued growth of ! By ROBERT KEIXLM French Lick Springs Hotel, June 24 "The outlook for American farmers during 1949 is very good," Kirk Fox of Des Moines, la., editor of Successful Farming magazine, said flatly here today, addressing the 65th annual convention of the American Seed Trade Association. Pointing to congressional action on the farm bill and on providing food for Europe, Fox declared heavy production will be required of agriculture and will be provided by it for some time to come, but he warned: "This will delay a return to a better balance on crops. Clover fields in the Middle West are becoming fewer each year. The condition is alarming. Unless farmers return to more grass and grazing practices, the land will suffer seriously under the cash-crop emphasis now being given everywhere." FOX, ONE OF the nalWs leading farm editors, foresaw vast development in chemical control of weeds and also In the standard of living in farm homes. C. C. Alexander, Indianapolis manager of Bemis Brothers Bag Company, was given a standing tribute by the seed men from all parts of North America at conclusion of an address in which he called for renewed emphasis by employers on the standards of government and of Jiberty promulgated by the founders of the United States. "The greatest seed planting of all time was in the founding of the United States," Alexander reminded and added: "We are the posterity of those great leaders, we can not fail them.

Mulloy and Falkenburg were drawn to five sets each in beating Sumant Misra of India and Draja Mitic of Yugoslavia, respectively, on an otherwise form-ful day in which Frankie Parker Los Angeles, Tom Brown of San Francisco and Budge Patty Los Angeles also advanced as field was cut to 16. TOP-SEEDED Parker led the United States sweep into the fourth round with a remarkably effortless 6-0, 6-1, 6-0 conquest of Cyril Kemp, Irish Davis cupper. Third-seeded Mulloy had to call every shot in his command, however, to wear down Misra, star of India's Davis Cup squad, a 2-6, 6-4, 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 triumph. Falkenburg, seventh-seeded, put on a brilliant rally to eliminate the veteran Mitic, 5-7, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. Brown, seeded fourth, defeated Borge Fornstedt of Sweden, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2. Patty reached the round of 16 by a walkover when Franjo Puncec of Yugoslavia became ill and had to quit at the end of the first set, which was won by the American, 6-3. AUSTRALIA'S Jack Bromwich ranked No. 2, and Eric Sturgess South Africa also advanced without much difficulty. Bromwich outclassed Vladimir Cernik Czechoslovakia, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2, while Sturgess scored a 7-5, 6-4, 5-7, 6-2 triumph over Enrique Morea, Argentine champion. Tony Mottram of Britain upset Gianno Cucelli of Italy, 6-8, 6-3, 10-12, 9-11, 6-2. Two of the Yanks' five seeded women players Louise Brough Beverly Hills, Calif., and Doris Hart of Miami reached the third round of their division with victories over unseeded Americans, as two other unranked U. S. women succumbed to European opponents. SECOND-SEEDED Miss Brough beat Mrs. Mary Arnold Prentiss of San Bernardino, Calif., 6-1, 4-6. 6-1, and Miss Hart trimmed Mrs. Helen Peder-sen Rihbany of Boston, 6-0, 6-1. Gloria Butler of New York lost Mrs. Vera Thomas of England, 6-2, 6-3, and Mrs. Rita Anderson of Los Angeles was beaten Alice Weiwers of Luxembourg, 8-10, 14-12, 6-4, in second round matches. In mixed doubles play, the top seeded pair of Bromwich and Miss Brough, opened defense of their crown with any easy 6-2, 6-1 victory over Edward Mandel-baum of Egypt and Vera Mattar Lebanon.

Champion Is Ousted Chicago, June 24 WP A dark horse and three former champions headed by Babe Didrikson Zaharias today climbed into the semifinals of the Women's Western Open golf tournament. Mrs. Zaharias, entered from Grossingers Country Club, N. Y., was a 3 and 2 quarter-final victor over highly-regarded Polly Riley and Ft. Worth, Tex. The Babe tomorrow meets Helen Detweiller of Indio, Cal., 1939 Open champion. She ral lied for a 1-up quarter-final decision over Mary Agnes Wall of Menominee, Mich. IN THE LOWER bracket, Patty Berg, 1941-43 champion from Minneapolis, won as expected from Claire Doran of Lakewood, O., 3 and 2. Beverly Hanson of Fargo, N. D., provided the day's only excitement. Tall and bespectacled, she walked away from Grace Lenczyk of Newington, Conn., 1948 National Collegiate women's champion, 9 and 7. Miss Hanson, who faces Miss Berg tomorrow, sailed around the nine-hole turn seven holes in front. Miss Lenczyk, whose driver was treacherous throughout the match, conceded three of the 11 holes played. Mrs. Zaharias, Open champion in 1940-44-45, played out the 18 holes after vanquishing Miss Riley and posted a medal of 73 for a new women's 18-hole mark at rolling Skycrest Country Club. The former record was 76, posted in Monday's qualifying round by Margaret Gunther of Memphis, Tenn., who was eliminated yesterday by Miss Wall. IRONICALLY, Mrs. Zaharias zoomed over the first nine today in 35, two under women's par, and the same score Miss" Riley posted for her first nine yesterday in squelching Bettye Mims White of Dallas, Tex. Miss Riley took 3a taps against the Babe in the first nine today. Miss Berg took a 39 for her first nine during which she built a four-hole lead over Miss Doran. Miss Detweiher, two-down at the nine-hole turn, rallied to take the 10th and 11th hole, squaring tne marten.

Ik 1 2 Race Results i If you are not familiar with i the term "purist" in fishing lingo, it means an angler who abstains from all other methods of fishing except his one-and-only choice and more often than not looks down his nose at any other way of angling, or any kind of fish other than the one he has chosen for his pursuit. Like everyone else who has been bitten by the fishing bug, this ol' man is partial to a certain method of fishing, our favorite being with the use of artificial lures by way of both the casting rod and plugs and the flyrod and flies but by no stretch of imagination can he be called a "purist!" Give him a can of worms, a cane pole and a couple of kids for partners any time and the world is at his feet. I PSTREAM AND DOWN Yel- lowwood Lake, which has been a genial piece of water all spring for ALBERT ZIEMAN of 609 Bozart here in town, was even more receptive the other day when it greeted him with a 6 a.m. offering of a 5-pound 13-ounce bigmouth bass! This one was a 21-incher in 'length, with a 14M-inoh girth, and was taken on a No. 8 bluegill hook and redvvorm bait on a jaunt down there with HENRY SWING as a partner. . . . Henry didn't capture any lunker bass like Al's but he did come with a goodly share of bluegills averaging around a half-pound apiece. ...

PHIL WARD, the, local county conservation officer, was called in for a conference on what to do about the whole situation, and so far as we know the baby 'coons are still being given free nursery attention by the good folks of Arnold's ranch . . . Dame Fortune patted the backs, a little at least, of JACK SCHNEIDER and PHIL SIMON, owner-part ners of the Meridian Flower Shop here in our town, when the bass season opener gave 'em samples of the big ones to come, Jack hittinR for a 3-pound bigmouth and Phil hitting for a lunker that got away! . . .
