105 POUND TURTLE CAUGHT BY ANGLER

           Paragould, Ark., May 17 (United Press) - - Newt Austin only made one catch in a day’s fishing, but that was enough before he carried it home.

            After selling 45 pounds of turtle meat at 15 cents a pound, Newt had enough left to make a keg of turtle soup.

            The “animule” as was in its natural state tipped the scales at 105 pounds the largest seen in this section of the state, according to veteran anglers.
