OUT OF THE PRESS The Compleat Angler Izaak Walton, "The Compleat Angler" of two centuries and a half ago, who died exactly that number of years from next Friday, would .be both amazed and. at home in America if he suddenly should take up living where he left off. L W 3 * More than 10,000,000 Ameri) cans are fishermen and sportsmen; that is, the sort who turn to fishing as a, recreation, and halt a million more people find a living in fishing, making boats, handling fishery products, manufacturing cordage, fishing gear, and anglers' supplies. « O O The fishing industry of the United States produces more than a billion pounds of food each, year, and an equal amount of products important to other arts and industries. 9 * =5 For instance, shoes of shark leather, sealskin furs, natural or imitation pearls, buttons, fertilizers, grit, lime, and scores of other commodities ore products or byproducts of "angling" or fishing. a * ! The United States and state governments, the bureau of fisheries, and similar agencies have made an I extensive study oE the sport of fish- i ing that provided a theme for Walton's book of centuries ago; as well, they have probed into the industrial side. * * t Biological experts have studied the food and game fishes until their lives are cataloged as completely as possible. Of timely interest is that fact that 8300,000 , under public works funds for'-construction has been allotted for building three new hatcheries. *' V v i The size of the fishing industry is something hard to comprehend- The value of the year's catch to fishermen in America is $125,000,- iOOO; the value of fishing tackle [manufactured is $25,000,000; the /profits of one year's operation In [the'fbh canning business were S80.- !OOO,000; packaged fresh fish sold SWEEPING CHANGES FACE FOOTBALL END OF REFORMS SEEN WHEN GATE RECEIPTS GO UP Financial Worries Changed Attitudes of Many in Gridiron World.

And--so if I might judge--God never did make a jfaore calm, quiet, innocent recrea- ftion than angling." Or this: "O the gallant fisher's life, It is the best of any; 'Tis full of pleasure, void of strife, And 'tis beloved by many.

NEW YORK, Dec. 12. UFi--The rumblings that have been heard intermittently In the eastern athletic chancellories within the past year seem about to assume the proportions of a full-throated roar of demand for sweeping changes in the college football setup. The latest developments, including demands for a new coaching deal at Yale, agitation at both Yale and Harvard for removal of the Sept. 15 practice restrictions and non-scouting agreements, similar unrest following the "purifying" oi New York university's athletics and alumni attacks on the so-called "Gates plan" restrictions at the University of Pennsylvania, all emphasize the trend. End of Reform. They seem to mark the end of football's reform wave, which gathered force with the publication of the Carnegie foundation's famous bulletin 23 in October, 1929, and rode along the college athletic trail quite unexpectedly with the depression as a companion. Never designed to be allies, these two factors have finally parted company. The moves to shake off the less desirable and self-imposed restrictions of the reform era are simultaneous with the reports of rising attendance and box office receipts for 1933. At a time when it was popular to debunk arid de-emphasize college sports, when Yale, Cornell, Illinois Tulane, Chicago and Army wen among the 21 United States institu tions listed as the "lily whites" the Carnegie report, there was heed for concern or worry abou filling : the athletic ^treasuries. Th big football games all were sellouts Early season breather contests could be played with full confldenc that the slack would be well taken up by the traditional games. Al college sports flourished on the gridiron receipts. Salaries and ambitions soared. Navy broke with Army over a. dispute on the high ground of eligibility. Riding to Fall. Most college leaders feel that under such circumstances football was riding inevitably for the big tumble it finally took. Likewise they hailed the elimination of wide- pread evils in subsidizing and re- ruiting. They feel now, however, hat in some respects the remedies vere more damaging than the or- inal ailments and that, in effect, here is a middle ground of opera- ions which they hope to reach and ustain. The current eastern college rend, therefore, is toward restora- ion of earlier fall practice, train- ng camps on a modified basis, with accompanying training tables, and perhaps the formation ot an eastern Big Eight or Big Ten, deigned to bring about more uni- 'ormity and control. At the same imes, the rivalry for better coach- ng production has been developed iy the accomplishments of such effective organizers as Lou Little of Columbia and Fritz Crisler of Princeton. Some Changes. Some of the high pressure methods have undoubtedly been eliminated from the sport, salaries educed and old bitternesses removed, but the demand for win ning results remains a conspicuous factor, all official statements and ·speeches to the contrary. As one old grad put it: "The sportsman, in or out of college, should know how to lose gracefully but he should also have a no lesa keen desire to win." The big college schedules for the nest few years already reflect the purpose of playing football within their own class. Old and almosl forgotten rivalries have been renewed or feuds, such as the Harvard-Princeton affair, ended for the purposes of competition in 1934 Joo Boland (above), former Notro Dame star tackle and recently coach at St. Thomas, Minnesota, was named as an assistant to Notro Dame's new coach, Elmer Layden.
