' WTONBOAY, AffffiT, 1951 THE REGIiTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS ANGLER SAYS ITS OK TO SING WHILE^FISHING Expert Once Ownad $12,000 Tackle, Now Uict Pole, Lire Beit. SPRINGFIELD, HI., June 28 — A Havana, 111., angler with a reputation for pulling bass out of the buckrush endo«es singing while fishing. But he warns against knocking your feet or your pipe against the boat. He is A. P. Peara, who says he once owned $12,000 worth of fishing tackle, and now demonstrates with a pole and live baits. Sold on his techniques, he has issued a challenge through an angling club magazine that he can catch more fish at Chatauqua Lake near Havana than anyone anywhere else. "You can talk, you can sing, Peara says, "but you most not rub your feet against the boat. And i would never fish with a man who smokes a pipe. "He empties his pipe on the side of your boat and then he complains that he catches no fish. Cai%lessness! Carelessness is causing men to go home empty handed." Muffles Oars The bass expert even puts rubber around his boat oars so they don't create a racket. But he tolerates a radio in the craft. He apparently operates on the idea that though fish may not hear they can feel noise vibrations transmitted to the water. Here are some of his other recommendations for snaggling bass out of bottomland lakes: Make sure your line is in good shape and your hook sharp. Use good chub minnows. "Make sure you drop your minnow in the water first." Peara says the minnow should strike* water before any other part of your tackle because the bass will probably strike at the first disturbance. Drop your bait about a foot from the brush, not on top of it. If your line gets hung up, It will cut down on your minnow's range of natural motion. Fish Ahead of Boat If you're fishing in the clear, never fish alongside your boat. "Fish ahead of you' because the fish moves ahead of your boat. In other words, sneak up on them and fool them." What do you do when you hook your bass and he gets snagged in the brush? "Now hold him tight. He will pull. As he pulls he will release the hook from the limb and you can bring him in. If you keep that in mind you vidll be successful catching bass." Peai-a urges one other technique when you get a bass biting. "Don't jerk it out of his mouth, it him take it, let him go. Bass 'ill run first and then stop. When ..e stops he will turn and as he turns he pulls the hook into him. ''•Don't play with him—you got - bring him in." AT MT.

Shifting Sight Eyes of the halibut migrate to one side of the head as the fish reaches maturity. If the halibut lives in cold water, the eyes and body color are on the right side. In warm water, the eye travels over the head to the left side. The Strato-Stars aerialists will be one of the feature acts at the Mt. Vernon State Fair, July 8 to 1,5. The aerialists will perform from July 10 to 13, inclusive.

Homing Eels Eels in America and Europe leave their streams and swim to the warm Atlantic waters north of the equator. There they produce their young and die. The young eels swim back to the same homes that their parents left. There are about 20,000 trailers, or "caravans" as they are known, in use in England.

C. Champ, chairman of thetJeffereon County Production and Marketing Administration Committee. One important function is to aid in carrying out conservation practices which improve fertility and prevent erosion from getting started. This is done by building up resistance to erosion by strenthening the soil structure. Turning under a green manure crop to restore organic matter and humus to the soil as a means of strengthening the soil structure is an example. The production of good grasses and legumes is often dependent on the use of limestone, phospate and other fertilizer, and ACP assists farmers in applying these materials. Anothei' function is to prevent a breakdown to the farm land through the forces of deterioration and erosion. ACP does this by assisting farmers in the construction of terraces, laying out contours as a pattern for farming operations, building of erosion control dams, seeding waterways, and installing structures to handle e.\- jcess run off without damage to the land. The third and vitally important function today is helping farmers to carry out soil and water conservation practices to increase production from the farm plant. All ACP conservation work has this for its objective but some prac­ tices are more effective in accomplishing this end than others. .Conservation work, said Champ, is profitable — not only does it benefit the individual farmer but it is essential to the strength of the nation. "We urge all farmers to carry out their ACP practices; to improve their pastures, build sod waterways, use limestone and fertilizer for better grass and le- gqme production, farm on the contour, terrace where needed, and do the many other things that »vill improve their lands." Under new working arrangements with SCS every effort will be made to assist farmers in planning and laying out their conservation practices. Curious cemetery custom in some parts of North Carolina is the decoration of graves with burned-out electric light bulbs. t ere Is The WHY!
