Fish Like Candy, Too
Take along a bag of gum
drops on your next fishing trip.
Not only will you enjoy snack-
ing on them, but you might use
a few as fish bait.
Bass and catfish are both fond
of gum drops. Simply cut one
in half and use on hook as bait.
If gunt drops are of the small
variety, use them whole for

Whether fishing for bass or
the lowly catfish, you can in-
crease your luck by sinking
several pint or quart size bottles
of water, containing minnows, in
the vicinity of your bait.
Minnows swimming around

Wise fishermen allow rthei
live crawfish bait to sink to the
bottom—where crawfish natu-
rally are found. Also, they re-
move the two claws so the bait
won't be able to grab hold of
underwater weeds and brush.

Protecting Axe Blade
A sharp bladed axe or hatchet
is dangerous to have around
camp, if not protected.
Keep all such toole covered
by forcing a length of ordinary
garden host (slit lengthwise)
over the cutting edge.
Hose is rigid enough to re-
main clamped firmly in place
when the blade is not in use.

You can't beat the plastic case

COMMUNICATIONS — Your Tool for Progress
In case of fire,
this telephone lings the alarm
In many of our towns, fire protection comes from a volunteer
fire department. An effective communications system sum-
mons these volunteers by ringing all members' telephones
at the same time. What's more, it is a distinctive ring which
means "FIRE!" and brings firemen on the run. Here is
another example of how Communications becomes a Tool
for Progress — a communications service of great value to
every town with a volunteer fire department. For full infor-
mation about our many communications services, please

Outboard Motor Care
Many outboard motors have
been ruined by careless hand-
For instance, never turn the
motor upside down immediately
after taking it off the boat. The
water hasn't had time to drain
from the cooling system, and
will sweep into the heated cylin-
Let the motor cool off and dry
out a bit before turning it over.

However, should you fail to

protection by covering both
sides of the glasses with a thin
coating of soapy lather. Let the
lather dry, then polish with a

When fishing alene it is dif-
ficult to cast and guide a boa',
at the same time.
This can be overcome by
mounting an oarlock on the

straight ahead. Then use a long-

Don't guess about the legality
of your catch, Mr. Fisherman.

side of the boat, where it will
be handy, then stretch your fish
against this ruler for a quick
check of legal length.

Mark Good Fishing Spots
If you fish a lake often
enough you get to know the I
most likely spots where lunker.1-'
Fishermen with piscatorial
savy often mark such spots by
daubing nearby stumps, trees,
logs, or stakes with bright flour
escent paint. Occasionally they
use the same sort of paint to
brighten large fish net floats
anchored to the lake bottom to
mark such locations.
Turning Over a Leader
When a leader won't turn over
smoothly at the end of a cast, it
probably needs more body and
stiffness i ] the upper end.

STAY COMFORTABLY COOL 1
AS LOW AS
On days when tlu heat is unbearable, people
go to the lakes or beaches to be cool and com-
fortable. The cool breeze of the lake or sea shore
is air in motion that has been cooled by the
process of water evaporation This same process
is created by a Paramount Evaporative Cooler.
The large squirrel cage blower continuously pulls
outside air through wet redwood filters thereby
lowering the temperature through evaporation
of water in the filters. This cool, fresh, filtered air
is then directed into the area to be cooled.
Some of the advantages of a Paramount
Cooler are r
• Low cost of equipment, operation and maintenance
9 Quick end easy installation
• Maximum comfort at all times
• 100% trash, cooled, filtered air
• Fresh air ventilation, without cooling, for spring
•nd fall—just turn off the water
