Electronics Locate Fish For Anglers By WARD CANNEL NEA Staff Correspondent WALTHAM, Mass. — (NEA) — Chalk up another victory for mod ern science over nature. . In this instance, human nature. For a recent survey probing deep into the subconscious of American sportsmen shows beyond a doubt that what fishing enthusiasts basically want is fish. Now this is the kind of data that will upset philosophers and psychiatrists for years to come. But in the meantime, so it shouldn't be a total loss, an electronics company in Waltham is now in full production with a device guaranteed to find a fish anywhere within a range of 120 feet. Proof of both the survey and its answering invention lies in the company's sales office. "Wre turning out one fish-finder every two minutes on our assembly line," a (Raytheon) company official said. "We've made it very clear that the device costs $125, is guaranteed for only five years, and that you will probably have to spend $9.95 every year to replace the batteries. "Even so, we're running 20 per cent behind our orders." The machine itself is shaped like a standard-sized alarm clock, weighs five pounds and has, for some reason or other, been smartly styled in gray and cream. It works by sending out 1,200 ultrasonic signals per minute and catching the returning echoes as a series of flashes on an indicator. Raytheon people assure me that the sonics are too ultra to be heard by fishermen or fish. "It requires only a few moments' instruction," engineers say, "to learn how to interpret the different kinds of flashes on the indicator: how to tell what is lake bottom, rock, mud or fish." Actually, the fishfinder has a Toll for Subsiding Storm Reaches 18 // Die In Virginia Tornado Spawned by Hurricane Grade CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP> — A tornado born of a dying hurricane dropped like a bomb on the little community of Ivy near here Wednesday. Eleven persons died, 10 of them members of one family. The savage twister swooped down out of torrential rain pro- duced by tropical storm Gracie about 4:30 p.m., two hours after a relatively minor tornado had struck not far away. Twelve of the 14 members of the families of Ervin Morris Sr., about 48, and his son Ervin Jn, 21, were at home in the duplex they shared. Nine perished al- 12 time* Herald, Carroll, la. Thursday, Oct. 1, 1959 most instantly, their bodies thrown with explosive force upon a wooded hillside. The remaining three were injured. A hundred yards distant, the roof blew off- the hous* of Raymond C. Bruce, 58, as he and his wife Lilly, 56. and their son sought refuge in the kitchen. A stone chimney toppled and Mrs. Bruce was killed. "I heard a roaring up the back orchard — it sounded like a train. I saw Ervin Morris running into his house, and then the roof started coming off my house," said Bruce, who with his son suffered only minor injuries. "The roof went up about 50 yards. My wife and I ran back toward the kitchen. Then the chimney came down. More of it hit my wife than me." Witnesses v said the Morris du« plex disintegrated. Rescuers who fought their way to the scene over flooded and almost impossible impassable roads said the largest piece of its furnishings they found was a twisted refrigerator. Over the foundations of the duplex lay a tangle of fallen trees SQl'OZE . . . Linda Luesk/nw, 2, is squeezed part-way out of the picture by the giant squash, a huge, 50-pounder.

"It will measure the depth of any liquid," a sales executive said, "so we have orders from brewers, oil distributors, civil defense groups and farmers. "It will also work on land anti detect obstacles like trees and buildings but there is some doubt as to its real need in this area." By far. of course, the biggest demand has come from out-and- out sports fishermen who rely on this activity to escape the tremendous strains of their lives. And so. stacks of orders show ;he first wave is from fearfully susy titans — bank presidents, doctors, board chairmen, etc. — as you can see immediately how this gadget can step up a vaca- .ion or an afternoon off. No more muss, fuss* or tedious lours of unproductive diversion. You merely scan the bottom with your fishfinder until you find the 'ish. Then you simply shoot as many as you want and go right back to your board meeting or operating room—refreshed and reassured. 9 Injured by jasolinc Blast CHARLESTON, S.C. <AP)—A storage tank containing two million gallons of gasoline exploded with thunderous roar at the Esso Standard Oil Co. terminal here oday.
