Seen At Count
Other Fish Abundant;
At Virtual Standstill
Migration of winter Bteelhead
has been at a virtual standstl'l
during December, despite the
fact that an abundant supply of
fish is noted in the river, Robs
Newcomb, resident biologist with
the Oregon Game department re
ports. Only 335 steelhead have been
tallied at the Winchester counting
station, as of December 15, as
compared with 1,254 to the same
date last year, 934 In 1947 and
1,005 in 1946. That the low count
does not indicate a lack of fisn
is evidenced by the large num
ber of steelhead observed in low
er water, Newcomb savs.
Migration, he reports, norm
ally stops when water tempera
ture drops to 42 degrees and
water in the river has been right
on the oorderllne since the first
of the month. Indications are, he
said that the migration has been
halted by the drop in water tem
perature. Silverside salmon tallied over
the counting board numbered 13
30 on Dec. 15, as compared with
737 last year, 1010 In 1947 and
1379 in 1946. Silverside jack sal

Another handicapping feature
at Klamath Falls, according to
Newby, was the higher altitude,
which apparently tired the Rose

maples rise only 479 foet above
the level of the ocean's surface.

ST. LOUIS CP) The owners
of the St. Louis Browns, willing
to try any.ning t- improve the
club's position, have eome up
with a psychologist.
He Is Dr. David F. Tracy of
New York author, lecturer and
specialist in psychological prob
lems. Dr. Tracy convinced President
Bill DeWitt that he can do things
toward building the players' con
fidence and boosting their morale.
He has been hired for four weeks
of the 1950 spring baseball train
Will Have Free Hand
The psychologist will have a
free hand at the Burbanl., Calif.,
training base in his efforts to In
still a spirit of confidence in the
players. He also will concentrate
on teaching them how to relax
and overcome tension.
"After I teach the Dlavers emo
tional stability," Dr. Tracy told
DeWitt, "they will automatically
climb higher In the league race.
With my treatments, the club
should finish fifth and may even
climb to fourth."
The club finished seventh in the
American league last season and
had a narrow escape from the cel
lar. Incidentally, the Browns
drew fewer spectators through
the turnsiles than any other team
in the major leagues.
Goes Back to Yankee Tiff
The hiring of Dr. Tracy goes
back to last summer. Tracy, a
tormer athlete himself, was at
the Yankee stadium one Sunday
when the Browns dropped a
doublcheader to the Yankees. La-
;er he called on DeWitt and his
brother, Charley, the club's vice
-resident id i'X"iPincrt how he
thought he could heln the club.
"Dr. Tracy explained to us,"
President DeWitt said, "that un
der the stress of a hard-fought
game ap layer tenses up. Errors
result. Psychology, aiding a play
er to overcome this mental stum
bling block, gets at the bottom
of this trouble and enables him to
combat these tensions the minute

Gordon Hesseil, Dave
Detton Win Semi-Final,
It was a colorful, dynamic and
rough main event that wrestling
patrons witnessed at the Rose
burg armory Saturday night.
George Strickland came
through with his second win over
bad man Buck Davidson In an
"anything goes" brawl that turn
ed into a real slug-fest.
After Davidson took Strickland
in the first fall with a sensational
surfboard, exactly 45 seconds aft
er the opening gong, Strickland
was ready to eat nails.
He came back in the next two
falls, beating his antagonistic op
ponent urst witn a series oi arm
stomps, then in the third fall col
lected the winner's purse by dis
posing of Davidson with knee
The clash was a dilly, with only
about four wrestling holds used.
The balance of the match was a
series of free-for-all actions rare
ly seen in these parts. It was a
no - disqualification classic, with
hardly any holds barred.
In the opener, Dave Detton
bested Billy McEuin with a step
over toe hold. In the second pre
liminary action, a scheduled two
out of three fall, 30-minute af
fair, Gordon Hessel, in 16 min
utes, disposed of Lee Grable in
one fall. Time ran out before ei
ther could do anything, after the
first fall. Elton Owen refereed.
