Now the FCC has ordered WCLM to show cause why its license should not be revoked. And if it is revoked, what will become of those poor old shut-in bookies?
Oh, they'll think of something.
THE INDEFINITE HAND
When Stirling Moss crashed last spring it was feared that the British race driver might be permanently paralyzed. He has since made an amazing recovery and looked gratifyingly bronzed and fit recently as he talked to reporters in Nassau in the Bahamas. But the fact that he was not yet driving any car, much less a racing car, and spent the interview Indian hand wrestling with a friend to exercise his left arm, indicated that Moss still had a way to go.
"I banged my head in the crash," he said, "and that's a slow job. I can see my muscles improve but I can't see my head, if you know what I mean. I can see shortcomings. The other day I went water skiing, and though I was able to ski on one leg I only lasted about 60 yards. I used to teach water skiing and do turnarounds. When I lift a cup of coffee with my left hand it's somehow less definite than when I lift it with my right. I still have an island of amnesia lasting from the night before the crash to seven weeks and four days after it.
"When I get back home I'll have my neurologist check me over. If he passes me, I want to go off quietly to test myself in a car. If I can prove to myself that I'm still as good as I was, then I will go on."
FISHING WITH AN ANGLE
Ron Bodey is a cheerful, lanky 22-year-old Coast Guardsman from Everett, Wash., where the king salmon fishing is wonderful. Bodey has been fishing for the big king since he was 5. During a two-month span this summer the size and frequency of his catches made him a celebrated, even nationally known, figure. Since June 3, when he boated a 22-pound king, Bodey has been bringing in phenomenal fish, many weighing more than 30 pounds, seven of more than 40 pounds and one 53�-pound monster.
The Everett Herald ran an almost daily "box score" on his catches. He won the Seattle World's Fair salmon derby prize of $100 two weeks in a row. His telephone rang constantly as fishermen begged his secret.
"The secret," Bodey confided to a newspaperman, but off the record, "is in balancing the plug. Most plugs tip to one side when you put them in water. I weight the light side with plastic glue, sand it down and balance it just right. But please don't print that." He said he used a monel line, 25 feet of cuttyhunk, six feet of 58-pound test steel leader and a 16-ounce sinker. But he kept one thing secret: how far from the plug he hung the sinker.
