Ffa'Auwut A Fishing Queen Who Actually Fishes San Diego's Junior Chamber of Commerce, making a pitch for the yellowtail derby, tossed a cocktail party at the Statler Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles the other night and invited the Southland's outdoor writers. Marv Rickling, 1960 yellowtail derby chairman, and several of his Jaycee colleagues bundled a delightful gre«n-eyed blonde, Roseanne Booker, into their car and drove north to tell the Los Angeles Basin all- about this year's version of the derby. Roseanne, 18, a senior in high school and dressed In her prettiest outfit, was prepared to tell the writers that she actually fishes, which, to say the least, is something new for a fishing queen. Most of the metropolitan writers didn't show, pleading the flu or other engagements. The Jaycees should have brought Roseanne to Long Beach, where they could have planted her in'the midst of an enormous catch of yellowtail made that day aboard four local boats. It would have given the San Diego men and Roseanne something to talk about on the way home. * * * · ' . . FRANKLY, YELLOWTAIL CATCHES here are amazing every one, even those oldtimers who set duration records by staying up 24 hours at a stretch in fish off San Diego boats. We are not trying to take any of the,-glory from San Diego's derby, in which 100,000 anglers participated last year, catching a record number of 201,000 yellowtail. But, at the same time, it is just as well for Long Beach, Newport Beach and San Pedro landings to serve- notice that they will be out after the yellowtail which are so plentiful and which apparently are going to stick around for 365 days out of the year--oh, begging your pardon, 366 days this year. The San Diego derby will get under way March 25. Here are the dates for the three periods: March 25-May .21, with a fishoff May 27; May 22-July 16, with the fish- off July 22, and July 17-Sept. 10, with' the final fishoff Sept. 16. Prizes, as usual, will consist of station wagons, 15-foot house trailers, 18-cubic-foot freezers, plus a lot of lesser prizes in each period. The weekly prizes also will be handed out, just as they were in 1959. Fisherman's H. M., Point Loma and Red Sails Landings will participate. NEW BOOKS-Col. Charles Asklni, one of this counlry's great hunlers, has written a rather remarkable book, "Asian Jungle--African Bush" (Stack- Pole--J10), which went on sals this month. Col. Asklns admits that when he was a boy he was well sntlsfled with the first lackribblt. He thouoht then that all nis humino dreams had come true, but as he grew older robblls led to ducks and oceso, then deer, then antelope art! bear and finally to practically every oame animal on Ihe Norlh American continent. Then he turned to bigger oame In Africa and India, where. In Itie succeeding years, he had a sample of evtrv type of hunting possible. ''Asian Junole--African Bush" Is an Intensely Interesting book on his own adventures, plus those of many others. It Is we I III' -troted with some rather unusual hunting pictures. AsKIni' book Is dellohtlullv different man most bio-game hunting volumes. Hf Dives excellent Information on guns ·noI ammunition, where to go and what to do when you gel there. Also he devotes · short section to wing shooting; In Africa, something rare- Iv, mentioned In most books of that naturt. The book is avalli ~ v ' ·tores or from thV Ktn'-i'nA ·rapn Press Bldg. at book w e Co., Telt- lsburo, Pa, THB STACKPOLE CO. also has lust Tinted another great book on guns, .'s "Tnt Plaint RHle," by Charlei E. lanion Jr. and sells at 510. tt Is due go to I hi bookshelves next week. "Tht Plains Rifle", deals with lust plain people--not the military--and the gum they used In the old dayi when a man would enter any country and try any adventure provided he had a good rifle and ammunition to fit. Perhaps It's the Impact of the TV westerns,' but ouns associated with the frontier of the early weit are exlremely popular now with all collectors. Hanson de:..": Info such history with- almost the same spirit of adventure and has come up with an unusual volume that deals with such subiecls as: thi Hawken rifle, which was so popular with trappers In the fur-trade days, the Pennsylvania trade rifle, the Tennessee rifle, English rifles, gunsmiths of the early west and a.greiit number of other subjects. * Inasmuch as rides cm't be divorced from pistols--at least along the Indian frontier--handguns have a part In the boak, as do ihoiauns. The book Is as much a collector's item as are the rifles that Hanson describes In such tine style. If you are a collector or reader of gun books, you'll find It a welcome addition to a library.

We should make a great team. I can't read." Reese and Dean are here for the New York baseball writer's dinner. Dean arrived in cowbow regalia, including boots and a 10-gallon hat. His weight has zoomed to 280 pounds. "It's going to be a pleasure working with a real big leaguer like Reese," enthused the former St. Louis Cardinal. "I understand he's a 10- handicap in golf. I'm an eight-handicap. Wo ought to make a lot of money this summer." · Reese left the Dodgers t "*W^^ta b ecause ' le wante d to spend p l»iPW| more time with his family I ^ and, as a telecaster, he will be home Monday through Thursday. The d i s c u s s i o n got around to managing. Reese could have had the Dodger job, succeeding Charlie Ores- sen in 1954. He turned i,t down and Walter Alston got the job. "I never wanted to be a manager," he said. "It's too nerve-wracking. Just seeing what fellows like Birdie Tebbetts and Fred Hutchinson went through made me more determined than ever that managing was not for me. Reese is positive Charlie Dressen, for whom he played in Brooklyn, will do a fine job in Milwaukee. "He's a great manager," PeeWee said. "He will be tough to beat. He'll shake up that club, too. He'll have those fellows going all out or else . .." San Francisco's Giants, according to Reese, will be the team to beat for the National League pennant in 1960. "They've made a lot of improvements," he said. "Don Blasingame ought to straighten out their infield. Billy Loes, if he wants to pitch, will help their pitching staff. "The Dodgers have great pitching and wonderful team spirit. They'll also have the confidence that a World Series winner has. A lot depends on the shortstop. If Maury Wills can play the kind of ball he did in the latter part of last season, he and Charlie Neal should form the best double play combination in the league. "The boy I like on that team is Frank Howard. He should be in (here every day, whether he plays first base or the outfield. I think he can help the club a great deal. He's a big leaguer at the plate." DEAN REESE INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELESRAM-C-S Uni »««ch, Olir.. Jundtv, Jmwrv JL !*· FAIRLY HOWARD Howard and Fairly Sign Dodger Pacts Frank Howard and Ron ·'airly, two bonus babies who cost the Dodgers nearly .$200,000 and should be worth it, ·eturned their signed 1960 contracts Saturday. Fairly, the Long Beach whiz who 'was selected to the ·Jationa! League's all-rookie team, mailed his contract 'rom Camp Gordon, Ga., where he is fulfilling his six- months military obligation. Howard sent his contract from Cuidad Trujillo, Domini can Republic, where he has seen learning to play first base with the Escogido Reds. Scouts report tliat the six- foot- 7 Howard is handling his new position well and appears to be correcting his liabit of swinging at bad pitches. Howard, named the minor leagues' No. 1 player last year, hit 44 home runs for Victoria and Spokane. Fairly hit over .300 through June !, then tapered off to a .2-10 average.
