Time Here For Sport Fishing Expecting Bluefish In Very Short Time, Prospects For Gulf Stream Fishing Seem To Be Excellent Plenty of weakfish are supposed to be at the old wrecks off Bald Head Island and at ether points along the coast where wrecks of civil war ships provide these fish congregating spots. So far no reports have been received of parties going out but fishermen say that the trout or weakfish are there. Oaptain T. H. Watts, who has been operating a sport fishing boat for many years, says that if the present nice weather continues there will be an abundance of bluefish by the first of April. The Spanish Mackerel will show up right affer that. Since sportsmen have not yet gotten over the three years of restrictions against gulf stream sport fishing, no parties have gone out yet to look for sails and merlin, but it is believed that these fish are offshore in waters west of the shoals. The presence of Barracuda, amDer jaca ana aoiphin out on the shoals may be considered as certain. During the past three years of blackout on sport fishing service men who were patroUins- a'ong the shoals [made a great many attaches. The found barracuda, amber jack and dolphin plentiful during all winter months. Many a ship's galley has received a supply of fresh fish as a result of an hour or less of effort from members of the crew who were off duty while the ships were over Frying Pan. Caswell Still Military Object Fort At Southport Has Never Been Classed As Surplus Property And May Still Hold Possibility Given up as a Section Ba3e by the Navy some time ago, but with a good sized garrison still there, Fort Caswell is still not classed as surplus property and there seems to be a strong probability that the government will use it for some purpose or other. The very valuable facilities constructed three and four years ago added to the construction that was already there made the Fort I a full and complete post. , Among other recent investiga[ tions the Army and Navy amphibious force officials visited and inspected the place this past week. They came, looked, seemed impressed, but said nothing. Bald Head Island, the great harbor and the ocean would all seem to combine to make Fort Caswell the ideal location for amphibious force operations.

More, bigger, and better boats will work out from Southport this year than at any time before in the history of the ltcal shrimping industry. Witt.in the past week Lewis J, Hardee and Dallas Pigott have received four Coast Guard and Navy Patrol boats, al! capable of heavy and hard sea duty. With the discontinuance oi the Offshore Patrol work several weeks ago these boats became surplus government property and became available to purchasers for commercial work. They are all in the best of condition and need verj little altering to make them the best among shrimping boats. W. S. (Bill) Wells has also pur* " ' n., cnaseu two or uie lurmci r?uu boats during the past week. His brothers, Charlie and Wylie Wells have acquired three. All five oi these craft have arrived or wil reach here this week. They wil add greatly to the force of the diesel powered trawlers, a typ< that is rapidly growing in numbei here. W. S. Wells had three oi the big diesel boats before his re cent purchases. His brothers hat numerous other trawlers, bott large and small. They will havi perhaps the largest fleet of trawl ers to operate from Southport thii year. In his huge Mary-Clark, Dr. L C. Fergus put the tops in shrimj trawlers In use here last season In addition to being the most cost ly boat used in this section th Mary-Clark has a real sea-goin| skipper in the person of Clarenc Simmons. Recently the boat wa fitted out with a new 150 h. f diesel, her original engine not con sidered as having enough powei Dr. Fergus will have another bi| boat, built locally by Robert Jon es, ready for launching and th installation of her diesel engin as soon as she can be nainted. Ai construction work and calking ha been completed. Lockwood's Folly and Shallott shrimpers, who operate fron Southport and Holden's Bead have greatly increased their fish ,ing equipment through the pur | chase of boats or having nev ones built. Engines and othe equipment have been obtained o are now being acquired. Hermai j Stanaland of Shallotte will worl j two of the most serviceable traw I lers in use on the coast this yeai .One of these craft, Grandma, wa I purchased new last summer. Th | other was bought recently. Botl | are diesel powered. | So far it has been impossible t check up on all who have obtain led boats smaller than the diese powered craft It can only b said that the number is large am that all are already in tip-to] shape or else they are being plac ed in that condition now. If thi years shrimping season does no turn out a good one it will no be through lack of equipment. Former Director Spent Night Here J. T. Gibson On Way T< Assignment In Richmom I Josiah T.

I I "American men have been I i fighting throughout the world for I , a long time," Mrs. Rosenbaum fl I said. "This year they will need all I 1 of the moral support we can give I 1 them. The American Red Cross is I p bringing home to those men I : wherever they may be stationed. fl r "The task in the next twelve I f months will be greater for the fl - Red Cross than ever before, for I 1 not only must we serve the men fl l in the war zones, but we will be fl j required to give increasing as- I - sistance to the boys coming back fl s to the United States." I The Red Cross is serving in ev- fl ,. t ery theater of war and with ev- fl p ery command. Red Cross workete fl i. also are on duty at s?ores of out- fl . posts over the world, are giving fl e aid to wounded men in hospitals I I in the major battfe areas and in fl e the United States.
