The big black entry finished barely a gnat's whisker ahead "of another star of the show ring, Old Glory,-owned by Mr. and Mrs. Gene'Goff, Fayelleville, Ark., which took second honors after the field had been narrowed to two by the judge. As far as most of.the spectators * — ——-— : . —, at Haley Field were concerned, this was tiie-cllni'n.v to the show because of Ihe exceedingly close competition in, this class. The exhibitors, S. W. Beech Jr., up on Black Angel, and Blllie Gmbbs aboard Old Glory, handled their mounts with nil the-finesse at their command nnd it was apparent to .the crowd that riders as well as horses were pressing to the last notch.

The fishermen went at tremendous expense lo obtain the best available equipment in an effort lo snag 'Big John', ns they 'artentlonntcly' called it.

Usually she left with a fairly good string, "she had hardly settled clown atop a huge rock nnd the bait hit the water when something struck, and, brother, I mean struck. I was standing some distance away and I thought it was going to pull her In. She made little or no noise, just reared back on the line witii nil she was worth.
