SPORTS ROUNDUP will pounce on him Just as your dog will pounce on tadpoles or minnows In a pond. The bear anchors the humpy or coho against the bottom and then picks it up ;in his teeth. He may even grab his meal in those fangs first off. 1 But U you think you have seen a. bear, either brown or black, using .his paws like dlpnets or swip- Jn* lunch up onto the bank with a roundhouse right, you'd better change your brand or get thoss spectacles fixed.

""• -—•»••». ** jMOk a 111 t £>U ( , The really dangerous lie, a menace to the preservation for the American public of the greatest American game animal, is the in- ,s%Uous propaganda that brown ,a$ Kodiak bear threatens the salmon industry. Sure he eats salmon. Almost every creature of the COnstal area save the Sitka deer, creatures furred, feathered and finned, either directly or indirectly depends on salmon runs for a living. But the bear doesn't threaten, the salmon canning industry. The industry threatens itself. For lack of a better scape-goat it .now threatens the bears. •-Assume there are ten grown bears On a 'salmon stream, which is possible but too big a family. for any save the biggest creeks. Assume further that each of them efct* three meals a day, three salmons at a', whack, which is an extreme consensus. ,But granting such oxtremes during the months of July, August, September and October,; bears might conceivably eat .11,000 salmon. Actually t'hey wouldn't. Bears get fed up on. fish. They wander into the berry patches or stoke up on skunk .cabbage and wild celery to ease, the dysentery produced by a straight salmon diet Nor are all .the. salmons they catch fresh, unspanned. A spawned out salmon is doomed within a few days anyway, of :use only to the bears, ravens and scavenger eagles. •'•-•••••. Half that many salmon would be a fairer guess "for these ten brownies. But 'each .bear 'is. worth from one to two thousand dollars on the hook, in terms, of hunter and tourist -money spent In . the salmon country. Yet I nave seen four Siwashes gig 500 salmon in 'three -hours bright salmon, killing half as" many more in the process. These supposedly for thqir own use — actually for sale. They', were doing it on every tide, and sneaking in to seine the first "pool 'of th?5t creek during the brief'summer darkness. A few illegal' seine hauls have made wealthy men of 'cr ( ook- ed white fishermen. Onc trailing of any one. of the numerous fish traps along the coa'st can produce 40,000 unspawned salmon. ; : I honestly doubt that if all the coastal bears of Alaska gorged on salmon all Summer they could digest as many fish as onc good sized cannery processes into cans in its season.

When I was that age I had a different ambition. I wanted to grow up and be a "Saturday night sport." It seemed like life could hold nothing * finer. You don't see many Saturday night sports anymore. Lake the village blacksmith, time/has passed them by. But to me they will al ways have a memorial glamor, be cause they were the heroes of my childhood. Just what was the Saturday night sport? Well, he was the forerunner of the cake-eater, the drugstore cowboy, and the modern-day corner wolf. But he was much more than these. He had a falir, an aura of temporary splendor about him^the nonchalant air of a dead-game gUy ,ready for any adventure. During the week the Saturday night sports of my childhood were just ordinary fellows grubbing out a living. One was an undertaker's assistant. One was a grocery clerk. One worked in a cleaning shop.

It wasn't the three-cent bonus that thrilled me—although in those vanished days a follow of my years didn't sneeze at a three-cent tip- it was the offhand magnificence with which they did it. J. P. Morgan couldn't have shown more aplomb in buying a yacht. When they were all barbered and shined, these corner dandies would nudge each other and say: "Well, sport, let's go out and paint the town a new color." This rather puzzled me. because when I woke up the next morning the town was still -the same color. On thp' way to church I always stopped off at the barbershop for a shoe shine, and the Saturday night sports would be gathered there again. They were dapper in their Sunday suits, straw hats and two»tone shoes, but they had a tired look around the eyes. ''Well, sport, what kind of a night did you have?" They'd ask each other. And to hear them talk a feilow'd think ikch of them had been drinking champagne with Theda Bara. the vamp queen of Husband of Hope Woman Decorated With the 3d Infantry Div. in Korea — First Lt.

Hiegler, Manager of the Tcxarkana Social Security Office, stated today that the recent | amcndmens to the law will mean monthly payment Increases ranging from $5 to $8.60 for practically- all of the retired insured workers in Hempstead County. The average • increase for retired workers will be < about $6. In general, benefits payments to wives, widows, children, or parents will be increased proportionately; Riegler pointed for dependents arid survivors would be less than those for retired workers. In most cases, these increases will be about $2 to $5. The 1952 amendments to the law also provides for larger payments to future beneficiaries, Riegler do clared. Until now ~,tho law has provided for payments to mosl such newly retired persons, equal to 50% of the first $100 of his avo rage monthly wage after 1050, plus 15% of the next $200. The new law just passed provides for a benefit of 55% of the first $100 of average monthly earnings, plus 15% of the next $200. Tho effect is an increase of up to $5 a month.
