Payne, a native Greenbrier Countian who now ilves at 217 Dunbar Ave., Dunbar, recently a six- pound largeraouth bass in New River at Hawks Nest But he didn't get bit excited about it He did get eddied about a 21-inch, four- pound brown trout which he took last Mon- day evening from Sinking Creek near Williams- burg, Greenbrier County. 'Tve been I old enough, and I'm 4S Payr.e enthused. "and this is the best one I've ever gotten. I've booked trout before which were prob- ably as big. but I'd never been able w one." Payne bad been using artificial baits all evt- ning without success, so he decided to take a smoking break. While so doing, he changed from an artificial lure to a 5t nonchalantly into the stream- The brown didn't waste any time. He hit right away. Payne had to wade water up to his to land the fish, but he got him. It was a beauty, measuring four inches from top to bottom. Club Builds Trout Pond The Cass (Pocahontas and Sportsmen Club has built a two and one-half acre a picnic'1 area on the North Fork of Deer Creek. The impound- ment is stocked with trout, Leo Young, Durbin ouidoorsman and writer, told me the club plans to add an additional two And one-half feet to ihe_Jietght_J5f the dam, creating another half acre of water and making the impoundment deep enough for swimming. Club officers are Gene Crist, president; Carl Davis, rice-president; Tony Ware, secretary; Chet Kinney, treasurer; all of Cass. Jack Wiseman, who donated the land for the picnic area, Is one of the hardest workers on the project. The club is planning an outdoor carnival on July 4, and the public is invited. Leo also reported that Clyde Houchin caught brown trout in the Greenbrier 'Biver recently. -I havent been fishing much myself lately." Leo added. "I've never been so busy in my life."

Willie Tasby of Louis- 1.000 won-lost figure. at .Vitro, Parsons is often referred to as a "trick shot" The 'Winchester-Western people resent this, pointing out that Herb isn't a "trick shooter" by any stretch of the Imagination. His feats with a gun are legitimate. Herb has done a fine job for Winchester- Western, and for the gun business in general, because he puts heavy emphasis on safety during his exhibitions. Parsons is generally conceded to be the fastest man in the country with a shotgun or rifle.

The women's finals are scheduled for July 5. However, .she has lost about a half a dozen matches this year- most recently to Britain's Chris- tine Truman, who is seeded sec- ond behind Miss Gibson. If Miss Gibson fails to win, a streak of Wimbledon victories for j American women stretching all the way back to 1938 will be brok- en. American men lost their, tight grip on Wimbledon singles after Dick Savitt's victory in 1951. Vic Seixas managed a win in 1933 and Tony Trabert in 1955. But in 1952, 1954, 1956 and 1957 the title went elsewhere. Lew Hoad won the last two championships. He, Ken Rosewall and Trabert are now profession- als. Seixas is finished with big tournaments. Scores of other well known players of the late 1940s and 1950s have had enough of the interna- tional circuit winding from coun- try to country, hotel to hotel and tournament to tournament year after year, They have retired, turned pro- fessional or cut down on their ac- tivities, leaving the field wide Team Ttit Standlnfs W, L; Team W L 'teens or very early 20s.
