When they reach the area, the skipper gets into a small boat, the mate gets into another They start the'engines and, as they leave the mother ship, a net unrolls from the two boats The skipper and the mate have done thirn many times They circle the area from opposite directions, meeting on the far sidt As the net is hauled aboard the mother skip by winches, the fish flash foam. These are menhaden Nobody wants them. Fishermen call them mossbunkers The menhaden are the ugly cousin* of the herring. From June until October, they swim in gimt schools between Maine and the Carolinas, and across parts of the Gulf Coast From the air the schools look red Menhaden have big heads and no teeth There is no fight in them and no food either Still, the industry Is big and becoming bigger The purse «emers net 200.000 tons of these fish ev«yaurrimer this ik 40 percent ol 'alt the fish landed around the United States The btdlahk 'used to bury « menhaden Ui every second row ot corn, So did the pilgrims They #x bigger com Men haden were great as fertilizer Today there are six major companies in the menhaden in dustrv -<\ good boat brmgi m 7 o tons ol fish t day The 19 men oi| each boat are paid according to the amount offish.

The boats dock at « fish plant rhere, the menhaden rtde up on a conveyor They are ground up, put through cookers which blow live steam on them, and the oil Is drained off by centri fugalforce. ,,-, The solids are used as food supplements for poultry and pigs.

A white-haired young chemist named John Holston has great faith in menhaden oil He is a technologist in the Department of Interior. He works in the Bureau i,of Fisheries and ex haustlve test* indicate that the old mossbunker may be one of the answers to hardening of the arteries The discovery is so new that Mr. Holston is reluct ant to discuss It For years, thesovumment arid trie mennaden muustry nave felt - that 'here is great therapeutic value in this fish oil Ctierni cllly, the important ingredient is poiyunsaturated fatty acid It iound like something to be taken while pinching :the 'nostrils, but it isnt ' C«ie ol the offending agents in hardening ol the arteries, and in heart disease. ire,placd,ues. These . arc' like:' patches on a tube, except thai they are on the inside ol the artery. They narrow the hole in the artery, leaving less room for blood to pass through. The older you get, [hemoreplacquesyouhave. High cholesterol in the blood is a cause of placques. Some vegetable oils will lower the cholesterol count, but so much oil must betaken that the patient often becomes fat while taking the cure. The Bureau of Fisheries has learned that a small amount of odorless, tasteless menhaden oil. will do the same job and'do it better. It will do more than that. Mr. Holston believes it will also diminish • placques already in tlie arteries :• When it is added to a'baby's formula, the result Is found to be close to the goodness of breast feeding. , In the aged, a Utle bitofithelpstheabsprp lion of food , ; ; In one test case, four grams a day for 60 days conricte4» chronic heart condition; ft isn't ; magic, but. the next time I im .out on the Atlantic fishing, and I see a dead mossbunder float by, I am going to stand solemnly. at the rail and raise my cap v MONDAYONTHEV(§!QNI EDUCATION USA THE LIGHTER 5<D% ^ _^ ^ g Could Have Got a Horli By LOUIS CASSELS United: Press International The number of U.

There,; we're 50,513 juniors majoring m^ these fields ur 1957 and 55, 771-a year later . ',' ', The increase was three 'times, as great as might have been expected on the basis of the general growth of college enrollment. ; The survey focused on juniors because concen ,, iration in a specialized field usually begins in i*B|t$rd college year , The newly-published figures should offset some of the gloom that spread through official quarters here in the wake of an earlier report from the Office . of Education That report ; compiled * several ^months ago showed that undergraduate Recorded engineering enrollment dropped 4.5 per cen from the fall of 1957 to the fall of 1958. , . . The decline in engineering enrollment was particularly . disturbing because it seemed to mean.that American college students were not responding to the national need for'more tech- mologically-trained manpower a need vividly demonstrated on Oct 4 1957 when: Russia's Sputnik I went into orbit *""' It now appears that the mystifying drop m engineering enrollment may have resulted, at least in pan from students switching into math'and science, majors ,:, Educators; point' out that a' shift of only a few courses-tan change afteJiBfiieerlngmajor intoamathor sciencemajor.
