Sports Devotees Pout Billions Into Industries By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK —It may geem like it but not everyone in America will spend all his time this weekend burning up gas on the highways. At least part of the time he's likely to be pursuing his avocation as a sportsman or sports participant (although he'll burn some gas getting there). And this will gladden the hearts of a number of industries who collect several billion dollars a year from catering to and supplying this side of American life. Millions in Each There are some 20 million fishermen (4% million of them women); and equal number of bowlers (six million of them women); four million golfers to crowd some 5,000 course; and 12 millioa hunters (a half million of them women). Devotees of softball and sandlot baseball, tennis and swimming are beyond counting. A large portion of these will spend a fair part of the time at their favorite sports—all, that is, except the nimrods, who probably had better leave their guns and traps at home, the game laws being what they are most places this time of year. Bowling has grown fast since its big boost during World War II. The American Bowling Congress, with a membership of 2,250,000 bowlers of all ages using the 68,000 alleys'it approves, says about 2,500 new alleys are being built each year. They cost anywhere from $90,000 to \Vt million dollars to build. The industry does an annual business of about 350 million dollars. American Machine & Foundry Co. officials contend that a prime factor in the growth of bowling in the last few years is the automatic pinsetter which makes it possible to bowl any hour of the day or night—a schedule which it wasn't economical to maintain with pin boys, who are sometimes hard to find and keep. AMF has just delivered its 20,000th automatic pinspotter of a new line brought out in 1952. Bring Out Another Brunswick • Balke - Collender of Muskegon, Mich., in December 1655 entered the market through an agreement with Murray Corp. of America and Otis Elevator to bring out a pinsetter to be sold at $7,700. Outdoor sportsmen of the fishing and hunting variety will spend three billion dollars this year, according to a poll of state fish and game departments by American Express.
