Springtime brings to mind
g*rty boyhood memories of the
old-time fishing season. There
was hardly a minute, in the
Spring, when you couMd not
hear the putt! putt! <ut small;
gas boats coming and going
loaded with fish. And then I
there were the fish houses that;
lined the water-front docks,]
I where the fish were landed and®
l processed; and where fish could)
be bought retail or wholesale.®
Wy father was a great lover
of fish, and as a small boy Ii
used to accompany him to one
Os these fish houses for a ration'
of fish, and also to play in the!

THE WEST The saddle, as
much a part of the Western
scene as the horse, was intro
‘duced into the western area of
the United States by'the Span
iards, in 1541. Coronado, a
, Spanish explorer and adventurer,
! brought both the horse and the
saddle into the West, and into
the lives of the Indians. The
Indians were the first Ameri
cans to adopt the saddle as a
necessary and convenient com
plement to good horsemanship;
and many and varied, and sur
. prisingly practical were the
, saddle designs of the Indians.
The saddle has gone through
many stages of development,
from simple forms to elaborate,
handworked leather, silver and
gem encrusted modern models,
selling for thousands of dollars.
;Even a good, average saddle is
expensive, but a Westerner will
spare no expense to outfit his
horse with a fine saddle; and
next to his horse a Westerner
values his saddle most.
