LITTLE ROCK, Ark.. April 20. (U.P.J—Ozarlc vacationists — jm- tlc'ularly the sporlsmlnded. outdoor variety—can't get Arkansas off ihelr minds. And there's good reason. The entire state is a sportsman's paradise—a natural haunt for everything that makes nature what it is. Wild turkeys—found predominantly in south-central Arkansas- are near the top of any hunter's list for n real sports vlii'HV Ami with (hot season Just over, fiiuil figures from the Game and Fish Commission in Little Rock show that more thn 300 birds were banged In the last two weeks.

And Arkansas fish—well, they've figured in more stories than yon can count. The state's finned crop ranges from black bass to )nck salmon, ami Includes bream, crappie, pike, perch, trout, goggle-eye and calico bass. The only closed season on black bass is from March 16 through May 15. All game fish—Including brecim, crapple. pike, perch and goggle-eve —are In season throughout the year. Mull observes that current rains he says that all high waters In the state should subside btfore June. And wren I hey do, says Mull, fishing's going to be mighty good. Then there's the deer hunter. He comes into the sporting picture In Arkansas twice a year. The first time ."he can stock up his venison 'supply Is from. Novemlvr IHh through November 16Ui this year. And he gets n second try for a of antlers from December 9th through December itth.

"_Many call Montgomery's Normandy campaign a classic and a master stroke," Morehead said. '.•After Palnise," he contimie-1, , "Montgomery wanted to pack everything into a northern punch straight through to the Ruhr. He ordered BrSdley at the end of August to stop on the right in the vicinity .if Para : te assist this move." (Bradley became commander of trie^U. S. 12th Army Group in August,-. 4944.. .He -held equal status with'^ltmtgomery, who commanded -the 21st Army Group. Each general was directly responsible to GUI. Dwight Eisenhower as supreme commander at the end of August). "However," Morehead added, 1- ai this moment Elsenhower arrived to take field command. He cancelled Montgomery's"pursuit plan and instructed Bradley to go ahead so that all armies should come up to the R^ilne together and;cross ihe rlver..on.a broad front. . .

To date Mesdamcs Lack and Killebrew haven't decided who get.s credit for the catch. • 4 • Memphis fishermen are about to decide they're entirely too welcome at Old Town Ln'tce, near Helena. Even the snakes like them. A lot of moccasins have been seen In [lie best, fishing spots at the lake, as Tony Brown from Memphis can testify. A fair-sized sj>eciniftn slid Into his boat last Sunday. Tony promptly vacated In favor of the snake and took ;i short swim. Friends fishing nearby quoted the Memphlali as mumbling something to the effect thai In a case like that, two's a crowd." The leynl use of picnic seines irtrt trammel nets has been shortened one month in Arkansas. The state Game and Fish Commission, meeting In Little Rock this week, decided to o|>en the season July 1st instead of June 1st. It closes as usual September 30th. And further, the commission pro- Ibltecl the taking of all game fish with nets or seines, and ruled that lasted for more than •100 years beneath the '.vater. \Vlliamson's local representative, Joseph summers, said today, however, that the exact location of the wreck has never been revealed. He Intimated that the reported position In the straits between Key West nnd linvimn had been allowed to circulate to keep the uctvtnl location secret. The expedition's leader meanwhile itemed published reports that the entire search was a publicity scheme for a motion picture.

However a closed season until Julie 1s 1948. has been sei on bear, beaver, otter, elk and bulfalo in Arkansas. But let's get back to the turkey season that's just closed.
