NEW YORK, Mar. 9.--The hey-day if the guppy, whose spectacular irecding habits supplanted the gold fish in the hearts of American fish 'anciers, was doomed by a pair of Chinese ualkina fish, versatile and wriggly creatures of the deep who have- discovered the art of walking on dry land. According to W. J. Connelly, Cleveland fish fancier, there isn't a own m the United States which does npt contain a tankful of guppies. iVhat will happen to these towns now s a matter for conjecture. Connelly displayed a pair of walk- ng fish today at a rehearsal of an air program called "hobby lobby," devoted to the spare time occupations of stamp collectors, scale model builders and speakeasy card fanciers. The fish, known to ichthyologists as Channa Asiatics, were put through :hcir paces on a wooden, runway. They frolicked up and down the runway in good style, covering its six feet in one instance in six seconds flat, timed by stopw'atch. Connelly said the flsh can travel several hundred yards on dry land and can exist for 12 hours out of water. They have an extra breathing apparatus back of their gills and move over the ground with a rapid wriggling motion, propelled forward by their pectoral fins. ' They prefer the early morning, when the dew is on the ground, for a stroll through Chinese rice fields from one pond to another, according to Connelly, who described himself as an amateur ichthyologist and is editor of the Cleveland Aquarium Home News. About 10 inches from tail to nose, they resemble an elongated perch and are esteemed for food by the Chinese. The guppy is threatened not alone by the walking fish, but by other strange species which are coming to the attention of breeders. One of the most menacing is India's tree-climbing perch, but there is also the archer fish ot 'the East Indies, an expert expcctorator, which spits with such accuracy as to knock a fly off a twig at a range of 11 feet. Then there is the Neo Tetra, which glows with a red light when it wants a date, and the Indian glass fish, which is trans- luscent and under proper conditions almost invisible. ^Around the turn of the century," Connelly said, "everything was gold fish. It took the guppies to get the tropical fish really going." So long, guppies. Walker Weds Walker to Walker. BECKLEY, W. Va., Mar. 9.--Vera Hazel Walker became the bride of Carson Arl Walker. Rev.
