If the plans of Eddie Rcgenold, manager of Ihe Lee Wilson Company at Armorel, materialize the Armorel lake will be a perpetual fisherman's paradise, Eddie proposes lo form a nonprofit fisherman club with a maximum membership of 100 with an annual ' c c of $10. Members of the organization would automatically have the right to exploit their fishing prowess at the lake which is now teeming with grown fish just ready for the hook. Proceeds of the organisation will annually go toward the upkeep of the lake, restocking It with full sized flsli, instead of the usual small fish as now provided by the State Game and Fish Commission, and improvements us Hie need arises, Mr. itegcnold explained. "More llian :i year ago we put mote than 200,000 full sized bass ami criippic Into the lake, since then many more have been added. We have spent considerable money rebuilding the lake, constructing a dam to control the water and rt- stoeklng It with game fish. There arc no provisions, financially, I mean, to keep It that way. We don't intend to let It get back In the condition it formerly did. "With such an organization, and n limited number of sportsmen participating, It should not only lasl C.RAYSON'S a long time and provide ample .port at a nominal cost, but assure them of good fishing at all Jrnc.s." The line forms to the right, boys.

Carl Ganskc, SCOREBOARD By IIAKIIY (iRAYSON NKA Slll>rl:i Kdllor WILMINGTON, Del. — You run down to Wilmington, fabulous Domain of -the UuPonts, to chat with Herb Pcnnock about the Phillies and wind up talking about the Yankees.

"The Jeep" also complained of the weather and lack of sports. . . . "We had to wail four days to leave port even after we were all packed and ready lo go because of the tremendous wind. ... II was blowing at an 1 estimated speed of more than 120 miles an hour, and that's a lot o' blow." . . . Like the Army boys,-Carl said he and his boys did not have time to take out for a sports program, even in the Slates. . . . The only thing they had to do was WORK, am! there was plenty lo do.

"In addition to his many other line qualities, including all those of a tighter, Chappie got. to first base faster than any other riglil-haiid hitter I ever saw." It's pleasing to see another practical baseball man at the head of a major league club, especially when he is such a gracious one as Herb Pennock. One of the early fine gestures of General Manager Pcnnock, the American Leaguer, was retaining ftcd Fitzsimmons, the National Leaguucr, as manager.
