"The angler," he says, "must cut the barbs off his hooks to make for more sport, so he is not too bored."

THE CRYSTAL BUBBLE
Each year the Topps Chewing Gum people, who are forever blowing bubbles, give an awards luncheon to announce their Rookie All-Star Team roster. Among those present in the Waldorf-Astoria's Empire Room this year was Ford Frick, baseball commissioner and by no means a rookie. At 69, Frick is about to retire, leaving behind an impression of his reign that is not founded on a record of outspoken opposition to the wishes of baseball club owners.
Who, someone asked Frick, would most likely replace him as commissioner?
"I think," Frick replied, "that it will be a triumvirate composed of the Federal Communications Commission, Allied Van Lines and the chairman of the Judiciary Committee of the Senate."
