After base umpire Jim Tongate had ruled McBrydc out, McBrycle picked up the ball Irom the ground and tossed it away, to show Richards had dropped it on the play. Chief umpire Paul Blackard then. reversed the base official's decision, ruling McBrydo safe. However, after an argument, Blacknrd reversed his ruling. He said McBrycle was out for. tossing away the ball, thus "interfering with play." Mobile served notice that a protect would be filed, but continued piny. George Turbervllle.

And as strange as it may seem .the commission's licit! personnel act ns on- tho-job life-savers to nbmit 5.000,000 Jish every year. Not only do the Held nien take fish from turbulent and otherwise unsafe waters, lml they remove turtles, snakes and bi^yer and hungrier fish from streams where new schools have been planted. And from up around Jonc.shoro in Craighcitd County comes the week's fish story. It's about a 52- pound catfish called "Old Lend Pencil." But "Old Lead Pencil" is out of circulation now. Fishermen who saw the whopper for a couple of months got his name from a sequence- in the- movie, '"Die Southerner." where fanners were- after u hupe catfish with whiskers like lend pencils.

And Scott County anglers say no time's wasted by dropping a line In the Kourclie IJlvcr. the Po- tcau, Petit Jcnn or in Mill Creek. From the North and Northwest, the bream and crappie nrc snid to lie hungry even though llv.y must in? seeing in their sleep by now, Clebuinc County flshr'r men say Red Ulver is clear, and fishing ts nt Its .best. All streams In licnton County are crystal-clear. Ineludimj Rogers Lake —and they're yielding good catches.

And a pretty lan;e crop of bur bass is reported in the mouth of\J5i« Liney Creek in Johnson County. And with all the fishing activity K"lnn on, the State Gtvnic ami Fish Commission reminds spoilsmen of license regulations, A resident license Is required of all fishermen over ID years of age using artificial bait, lures, minnows or any oilier species of fish for bait. f you plan lo fish 'from a boat, nft. or any other float, you'll need u license. The set fine for viola-, tlon Is between $10 nnd $50, de-' pending upon the nature of the: case. However, T, A.

Troy Rhoclen of Hot Springs Mia red a fine gobbler on Cedar Mountain. Not so fortunate, however, were his companions—Sid Ball and Lewis Woodcock. And In Harrison, Police Chief Floyd Abels chose the turkey season for Ills vacation—and for the obvious reason. He smacked down an 18-pound turkey In Marlon County, lint he Insists the "big one got away." It seems that the Chief (lushed Iwo gobblers. Kiwi h> the, excitement he forgot to aim at the bte one.
