FRIEND DELAYED TRIP liKPOHT The other day a frUml (?) of infiic slojiped me on the street nud with the air of ti truant officer blurted: "You have been home nearly a month and 1 haven't, seen a thing, not a Hue about jour trip into Texas Inst month." I was so blabbaga.sled to know Dial anyone might be interested In \vhnt was going on that it was scv- crnl seconds before I could recover? from the shock long enough to meekly explain that I didn't think rmy one cared. "I don't," he retorted with a vicious clamp on his already bruised and bitten stogie." but I knew sooner or later it was coming and wanted to gel it over will)." "Well, if you Insist Ml try to hammer out n few lines," I told him, Hut 1 don't think he heard me. By this lime he was a couple of blocks down the street. But this is it. TAKE FISHING TRU'S There is something fascinating Rboiit going back to the place where one first saw the light of das'. Of course, thnt was ninny, many—too many—years ago and there Is but little that I can recall now. But to get another peek nt the ol' home town of Lufkln, and the first home my dad and mother, now both gone, built carried tremendous sentiment till value and gave me a feeling Hint nothing else could, I had the pleasure ot meeting a man who used to work with my father at the foundry there. The (net lhal lie remembered him well was worth ft great denl to me. I am happy to report that fishing was pretty good in the Lone Star State, happy because they were n dumb sort, the fish I mean. They weren't nearly tis hard to cntch ns the Arkansas fins, mid that helped to make my vacation .something of a novel thriller. It Is so unusual to find a spot where the llsh arc really fish ami don't have a prefcrr cure about whose hook they lie into; r.very vacation trip that Is associated with fishing curries a tnlo: Mine is three-headed and what story! The day after nrrlvln,; tilings looked pretty bleak mid I felt sure that my usual piscatorial luck was miming true to form. Crawling out at (lie.crack of dawn four of us, Glenn Tompkins, lone's brother-in-law's brother-in-law, his son-ln-law, Pic.'Leonard Wnllncf, on furlough from the Laredo AAP, and Lieut. Arnold Tompkins, who had just received his wings at the Blytlievllle Army Air Field, treked through n jungle-like section to it river. But when we got there the fish evidently had gone on vacation, or were in school, or smnpln'. Anyway, Ihcy caught only five. 1 didn't even get a nibble. But my gloom was short-lived. Later In the week :> group of us, Including Harold C. Jennings, considered perhaps the best fisherman In East Texas, certainly in and around Lufkln, went on an overnight trip to Pag Leu, n private club several miles onl, A fc\v of us got there first, Into in Uie afternoon, and caiiRlit about 25 before running out of bait mid darkness overtaking us. Early the next morning was a different day, and I do mean different. Harold and I were on the lake at daybreak and by breakfast he had anight eight bass and three goggle-eye. Pour of the bass weighed better than three pounds. His best luck ciimc with a green "Jitterbug" and a small plus, which he called a "Dopey", a special lor Ihc big month goggle-eye. , But the big ant, the gnuuldnddy,- got luvfiy. <!!eel-ly It did). But we got n good look at him and lind Uie fun of almost landing him. Moving Into r. spot where 11 sunken log was, Harold remarked Hint "a big bass likely is waiting for us." The cast was perfect. Drugging It down the log he cut It back of the end and was Just ready (o pull It from the water with a "I guess he wasn't there" remark when it struck. And did lie tear Hint plug up. From my ringside seat at the end of the lx>at I had the thrill of my life ns Harold toyed with the huge .boss Hint, close to the boat. After plkylng htm for n feiv seconds 'Hint seemed like mlmiles lit; reached down for the dip net. The fish made one llnal lunge under the boat nnd got nwny. FARM '0 LOANS Present Loans Refinanced.

Bass of Ihe five iml six pound variety arc nol uncommon there, lie has severil mounted heads to show. Harold received national recognition several years ago by a clever slunt. He caught a SV, pound bass and had a dentist friend of his to insert a set of false teeth in its moulli. He had several pictures made and distributed them. A national flsh nmgaxlnc got hold of one and used the picture and a story. The requests for copies became so numerous Hint he had some post cards made for mailing, I brought one home and gave it to Mike Mcroncy, an ardent (Ishcnnnn Enroute home we stopped by Mt rieiwniil, Texas, and visited wllli our friends, Dr. and Mrs. O. J. Chaslain and his family. The good doctor hasn't lost any of his fish- Ing /.enl and we took one trip to the teaillifiil nangcrfleld State Park with fair success. Due lo a shoiingc of shiners we hud to rob wasp nests to go. It was n new winkle to me, but experienced fisherman say nothing is tetter for bream and goggle eye. We caught nine In about an hour, came in and ate picnic lunch before reluming. During the 20 days I was away and the six fishing trips we caught about 75 fish, mostly bass and goggle eye. How many did r catch? • Don't lie silly!
