On Thursday, the 10th, the Johnson cruiser Myrno II was down at Cherry Valley with Mr. Johnson and his fanfily aboard, when someone called out "Swordfish!" Carl, who is an old-time inember of the Tuna Club, immediately sought the ice box, where he had placed a.flyingfish. But this had already been cut up and used as bait by the fanlily. The mar- lin was lying perfectly still, almost alongside the Myrno. Not having any bait, Mr. Johnson got into his skiff, taking his gaff with him, and pulled quietly over to Mr. Marlin and stuck the gaff into hint. The skiff, with Carl sitting astride the bow, left for parts unknown, breaking all speed limits and was madly cheered by Hal Roach's company of players, who were taking a picture at the time. After towing Carl and skiff well out to sea Mr. Marlin gave Carl the laugh and shook the offending gaff out. On re- turning to the Myrno, Mr. Johnson sMd: "It was sure fortunate for me that the gaff was only caught around his fin.I'm mighty glad to be back!"
