SYNGMAN RHEE SEOUL,
SOUTH KOREA PRESIDENT
"I don't know golfers. But fishermen don't lie. They just tell beautiful stories. I went fishing with General Anderson. The poor man didn't catch a fish. I caught 50. Yes, 50. No, this isn't a beautiful story. But the fish were beautiful to see."
MRS. CORRINE CRANFORD ROCKVILLE,
"Fishermen. My husband, Colonel Cranford of the Air Force, tells a corker. Fishing for tuna, he was strapped to his rod, but not to his chair. A giant tuna struck his line and yanked him overboard. He clung on until picked up. And he reeled the tuna in. So he said."
GARDINERS ISLAND, N.Y. CAPT. '53 U.S. TUNA TEAM
"I gave up golf 20 years ago. The lies of the other golfers stumped me. They would kick a ball out of the rough, forget strokes and play someone else's ball. So I went back to nature. Fish can't throw curves at you. In last year's competition, my team didn't sight a tuna."
MRS. LOU MARRON
NEW YORK CITY CHAMPION FISHERWOMAN
"Fishermen lie? Never. They know fact is stranger than fiction. I saw Al Pfleuger, famous Florida taxidermist, ride the back of a huge shark. The beast struggled to dive, but couldn't. Al's fingers dug in his gills, forcing his head up. You think I lie? We took pictures. Ask Al."
