"It looks like everybody in the
county and everybody who is visit
ing here are trying to go trout
fishing," said Rufus Ratcliff, county
game and fish warden.
"I have been practically all over
the county during the week and
rain or shine it made no difference,
the banks of all the streams were
lined with fishermen," he con
tinued. "But I guess the biggest proof is
the sale of licenses. This time
last year they totaled $864 and
now they have reached $2,122, an
increase of $1,258," he explained.
There have been around 200
county licenses sold and around
840 state licenses sold, it was
learned from Mr. Ratcliff.

The unknown quality of
Sayles - Bleachery's baseball nine
will face the leading Champion
"Y" team in the first W. N. C.
Industrial league game to be
played on the Canton high school
diamond this spring.
Ken Rymer is slated to begin the
mound work for Manager J. M.
Crawford, with Walt Spence behind
the plate when the game opens at
3:30 Saturday afternoon. Rymer
showed up well in last week's
league opener against Martel Mills
by holding his teams narrow lead
for the last three innings.
With all other games in the
league rained-out, the Canton team
jumped into top standing by
trouncing Martel Mills 2 to 0 last
Saturday in Asheville. Gene Gro
gan turned in an excellent pitch
ing performance by limiting the
Martel batters to three hits dur
ing the first six innings, and Rymer
stayed in control the remainder
of the game. German Miller and
Walt Spenee led Champion's of
fense, which netted eight hits off
Western Carolina's Catamounts,
however, handed Champion a 17-7
loss as the two teams practiced
with each other Monday afternoon
at Canton. Starting without the
regular line-up, the Canton men
could not control the hard hitting
collegians, but have a return en
gagement scheduled May 13th at
W. C. to seek revenge.

Reported For Next Fall
John Martin, Editor of the New
Southern Outdoors, tells a gloomy
story about ammunition prospects
for next season. Visiting the Rem
ington factory at Bridgeport, he
says ammunition officials forsee
fewer shotgun shells in 1947-47
than last season. Pdwder's no ob
ject it seems, but the shutdowns in
lead producing plants in Mexico
and Utah since the first of the
year have reduced the potential
supply of lead over 25,000 tons,
says Martin. But this is the fishing
season, so let's wait and see!
