New Hoop Nets f Manufactured By Local Net Firm Official's Decision Stands Belter Chance With New Type Nets By Oliver H. Allen A*new type basketball net that takes most of the guesswork out of basketball refereeing is being manufactured i n considerable quantities these days by the Exum Net Co. of Morehead City. Before the invention of the new ! net many goals called by referees were disputed. Balls would hit the backboard, bourtce off. hitting the bottom of the net without go ing through the ring and the ref eree, seeing the net waving in the air, would think a goal had been made.. The new net erases the possibili ty of any Such mistakes. It is shaped so that no ball can possibly brush against it unless it is thrown from directly under the net or from an angle at the side that would leave no doubt whether it had passed through the basket. Balls passing through the bas ket and ring will give the referee ' plenty of time to see them before they fall to the court. The net is shaped with smaller size mesh graduated from the ring down so that any ball falling into it has its momentum broken before it slides out of the net. A janitor in a Toledo. Ohio, high school invented the new net when he saw referees often be come confused with balls striking the old type loose weave net or passing through it without brush ing the net's strands. The new nets were first put 011 . the market under the brand name \ of No-Whip Basks. Later other j firms manufactured them and to day they have fairly wide distri bution among larger colleges and professional teams. Madison , v Square Garden in New York has ; J used them since their inception. Exum Net Co. has manufacture^ ( the nets since thpy were first in vented.

Such information is not being' [sought merely to satisfy the eur 1 iosity of some scientist, but rath er to help understand the relation between water movements and the movements of fish and shrimp. For example, shrimp are believed to spawn somewhere in or at the ledge of the Gulf Stream. Yet lar val shrimp (too small to have much swimming power) are found in the inside waters. They must therefore be carried in by water currents. ! The same pattern of movements! ! seems to apply1 to certain species! J of fish. If drift bottles or cards released in the Gulf Stream are recovered on the beach or inside waters, we would have, proof thmt i larval shrimp could be carried 1 j from the same area to the vicin , ity Of an inlet.-, and then on a flood i tide, could be swept into the , ; sounds. Migration Problems I Water currents are also believ ed to influence the coastal migra- 1 I I ion of such species as the blue-' i lish, Spanish mackerel and men haden. Why is it that these fish j occur in great numbers some years j and then again are too scarce to support m fishery? What has hap pened to the menhaden this year?
