Haho Free Press, Tuesday, June 20,1907 -- 11 __ _ juauo new riraa, iucauaj, uu Now Forty Million Fishermen Can't Be Wrong No Ironing Togs a Boon to Vocation Sport Involves Whole Family, Kids and Mom, as Well as Dad More than 40 million people went fishing In North America last year and there were few -- if any --disappointed anglers in that body of people who now take part in America's fastest-ETOWing outdoor sport. Fishing has become one of the most enjoyable family activities, involving mom, pop For most beginners, a good glass casting rod and a closed- face spin-casting reel are excellent learning tools. These can be used for spin-casting, spinning, trolling and still fishing. Even youngsters become proficient In a short while because most spin cast reels are backlash-proof. whether it takes place in the old mill stream back of the barn, on that rippling trout stream up in the hills, on the icy lake in the north woods or in the salt waters that splash against our coastlines. Rapid transportation, simple, inexpensive and easy-to- use equipment have combined with increasing leisure time to attract growing numbers of Americans to the wholesome and exciting fun of fishing. It's a Big Thrill Most fishing locations offer so much In the way of scenery and fresh air that actually catching flsh Is only part of the happy experience. Still, nothing beats the thrill that a youngster gets when he lands his first fish -- even If it's a tiny sunflsh. And dad often gets glassy-eyed when he retells for the umpteenth time about the big trout that got away despite his superior fishing skills. Fishing need not be expensive. Most Americans are within an hour's drive of a lake, stream, river or pond that can provide angling enjoyment and flsh for the frying pan. First rate American-made rod-and-reel outfits can be bought for less than ten dollars. Another few dollars will provide the novfce or the ex- .pert with enough lures, weights, line, hooks, sinkers, bobbers and other essentials to make any fishing venture productive and enjoyable. Family camping trips are often planned to include plenty of fishing for everyone, and excellent accommodations are available Just about everywhere that people go to fish. Major resorts usually offer boat rentals and live bait for sale if the family is on a long trip and prefers not to transport its own boat. Good Tackle Helps Fish have a way of smiling on experts and novices alike. Sometimes people with the least experience and simplest fishing tackle catch the most and biggest fish. Good fishing tackle, however, and some understanding of fishing techniques are bound to increase angling pleasure. Most fishermen find that selecting the right tackle and planning the trip is part of the fun of fishing. Experimentation with various types of tackle is the best guide to what is right for any individual. DIVERS, FOLLOW SAFETY RULES Use the buddy system. Always dive with a companion.

Know and observe the rates of ascent given in the U. S. Navy Decompression Tables to prevent air embolism and the bends. When skin diving -- without air tanks -- don't try to stay- under overlong. A lack of fresh air for too long can cost a swimmer his judgment.

Puiience and Praciice Fly casting Is preferred by many fishermen who take pride in landing big fish with comparatively light tackle. Patience and practice can make this one of the most enjoyable types of fishing because the skill of the fisherman plays such an Important role Fly rods are longer and lighter than conventional casting or spinning rods to permit quick and gentle manipulation of the light fly lures, With vacation time just a- rouiul [tip curlier, homemakers would tlu well to Kot acquainted with tbo ne\vesl development in men's :uut boy's clothing . . . a revolutionary process called pevii'.Ltv.c'nt pre.^s, that eliminates ironing completely.

Notnpo l lo I'roriilrnl FederalSai-ingt) One of the most popular of all American leisure time activities is touring. Yet few people stop to think of touring as the open sesame to all of the myriad forms of enjoying the great outdoors. Generally, touring by motor car is considered just an escape from the old familiar scenes -- a way to keep moving through an endless panorama of new and stimulating sights pleasing to the eye. Yet today's concept of tour- Ing has broadened vastly. In the first place, touring, perforce, takes you and your family, too, out Into refreshing open space under a beneficent sun. Leave Tensions Behind Second, because touring is planned for some specifically alloted period of leisure time -- usually the annual vacation -- all the work-a-day tensions may be left behind once you're in the driver's seat -- and from there on, the great outdoors is yours. Plan right and you'll start out relaxed, You'll be fancy free to go in any direction over routes of your own choice, at your own pace; to stop when you feel like It; to turn off the thruway any time you wish to explore whatever along the way strikes you as Interesting. Touring makes it possible for you to give added purposefulness to your driving: -sheer fun, If that's what you want; participation In a great variety of sports such as flsh- Ing, swimming, boating, golf -- and even learning in a most palatable form, especially if you're taking the kids along. Rewarding Objective Making the natural scenic wonders in one or more of the national parks a tour objective Is most rewarding for the whole family. Choosing to show the children the nation's capital or the state's capital can be an exciting and instructive adventure for all. Planning on sampling the fishing In the lakes and streams in the area through which your tour goes is something many women now enjoy along with their men folk. Choosing some glamorous summer resoit where all modern sports are available as the objective of your tour might be a special treat for the wife. And If it's all the way back to rugged nature that you want to get -- touring is the high road to camping, with facilities to your liking the boast of every state in the nation. Yes, the highways and byways for touring lead inevitably to the unlimited opportunities for recreation In the great outdoors. More than 50 percent of the population -that's more than 100 million people -- average 500 miles of touring a year in search of rewarding pleasure outdoors; 25 percent average a thousand miles of driving. See New Vehicle. 1 ! Grandest part of all about touring to enjoy the great outdoors is that you are the captain of your own ship. If you're going to use'the family car, be sure it's/fully serviced before you start. On the other hand, you may wish to explore the great new modern family of recreational vehicles built and thoroughly tested to meet the most rugged demands of back to nature travel and also to provide the comfort of the sedan. You may want to inspect the motorized campers and the new trailers which provide on wheels just about every convenience you have at home while they free you completely from dependence on hotels, motels, and even restaurants. Hazy sunlight on a white beach or pavement can cause more discomfort than very bright sunlight on n green field. It's not the amount of sunlight but the amount of reflection that causes discomfort, report researchers for the Murine Company. In a green field, sunlight is mostly absorbed and little is reflected. On a white surface -- snow, beaches or roajs, for example -- as much as DO per cent can be reflected. LET'S PLAY GOLF EVERY GOLF GAME STARTS at HERB'S BETTER EQUIPMENT MEANS BETTER GOLF!
