SATURDAY NITE FISH FRY
Monarchs pictured, from left to right, are: Newt Allen (from Austin, TX), Joe Greene (Stone Mountain, GA), Jack Matchett (Palestine, TX), and Rainey Bibbs (Henderson, KY) enjoyed a little fishing between games. It was not uncommon for players to participate in a little fishing and wild-game hunting while on the road. Players have been known to shoot at jack rabbits from their buses, or bag a turtle for dinner. (Courtesy of NoirTech Research, Inc.)
