Dec. 28 W) The little mountain village oC Temoaya mourned today for 23 friends and neighbors killed in a panicky stampede after a Christmas mass in the local church. Some 200 other worshipers "were injured in the rush for the doors. The tragedy was touched off by a failure of the church's electric .lights. Many of the 3.000 faithful jammed in for the midnight mass early Christmas were country people unused to electric lights" The parish priest, the Rev. Jose Cruz, said he tried vainly to quell the panic stricken crowd pushing toward the.churches' two doors. "Mass was just finished," he said, "and the congregation was leaving the church. Somebody stepped on a wire laying on the floor. There was a blue flash and They rushed for "The loudspeaker system has its own batteries and was still turned on.

Tobin of Ketchikan, publisher of -the Alaska Sportsman, has been named one of the winners m an American nation-wide contest for "tall" fish stories, according to word received here. This is the story Tobin submitted:^ "One winter clay while fishing through the ice of Bering sea, I felt a big jerk on the line. It wasn't me, so I started to pull the line in, but then the line started to pull me in. I had only six hundred feet of it, and in two minutes it was nearly 'gone, so I tied the end of the line to my dog sled and told the six huskies to 'mush.' "The dogs started to pull, but the ice was too slippery and the fish too big, and pretty soon the ice started to move toward the Aleutian islands. After two days we were out in the Pacific doing twenty-five knots, but the dogs still hadn't been able to pull in the line, which was hundred- pound test manila. "On the sixth day as we approached the Hawaiian islands the ice was melting fast. Near the beach at Waikiki, 'Baldy, my lead dog. attracted by the palm trees, leaped overboard and the rest followed. I jumped, too, and we sw^m inland, the dogs dragging the sled and line, and fish being at last too tired to resist. "The fish I had hooked began to emerge on the beach and what do you think it was? It was the one that had got away from me two years before. Boy was THAT a fish!"
