(UP) — Despite the wartime ban on most, large gatherings in California, the j annual jumping frog jubilee at' Angels Camp, immortalized in Mark Twain's celebrated "Jumping Frog cf Calaveras county," will be "big- gah and bettuh" than ever this year. More than 30 limber - legged croakers, entered by army posts, governors, movie stars and ordi-1 nary citizens, are scheduled to compete in the Derby May 15, 1C and 17. Thousands of fun-lovers are ex' pected to jam this little mining hamlet for the 15th annual jubilee and the Calaveras county fair and mining exposition which are held simultaneously. liuckshot Barred As in past years, hotel keei>ers are resurrecting their signs warn- 1 ing guests not to keep their entries! in bathtubs or under beds. But • even Ifss welcome are visitors with j buckshot in their pockets. For that | was the denouement of Mark Twain's story. Back in gold rush days a couple cf slickers induced a local gambler to enter his big spotted jumper. Daniel Webster, in a contest. Unbeknownst to DanTs trainer, the slickers fed the voracious amphibian a load of buckshot. When it was DanTs time to stretch his i long hind legs and show his wares, all he could do was gaze dismally and apologetically at his own. But it's unlikely there will be such skullduggery this year. For the International Frog Jumping Jubilee officials are mighty careful hombrcs. They make it a point to see that the hardware store is clos-rd during the celebration. Always Record Seekers And just about everything else in town closes up during the three- day celebration.

J., fathers, stage mock hangings, old- time frontier saloon brawls and earry-'em-away barbecues. However, it is the frog jump that draws the throngs. For there is always the chance that a hefty bull will flex his biceps and spring to a HEW world record. The handling and the prodding is an art in itself. You may prccl your frog but you can't shove him. Each frog is held upside down and shaken. That's the buckshot angle again. Then into the ring and the best jump out of three takes the watercress - lintel loving cup. A weak jump is a leap into the frying pan. This year the frogs, some of them far from their native irrigation ditches and ponds, will be gunning for the 15 foot 10 inch '"hop" made three years ago by "7. in." entered by 14 - year - old ~ Ecldie Robinson of Stockton, Cal.
