The hopes ol Ihc National League in the early innings of the yamc for (he benefit of Ihe Finnish relief fund are almost certain to be riding on big Paul Derringer of the Cincinnati Reds, a fireball fllnger with such uncanny control that he can almost threat! needles at the. plate.

"This extensive refuge system,' Mr. Cash said, "has been developed to provide nesting grounds within the breeding ranee of the birds, resting areas along the flywavs so tliat sufficient food and rest" may be obtained during migrations, and lo provide adequate territory within the wintering range during the months the bird populations' are concentrated .In the South." The Big Lake Refuge, which was established in 1915, Is n 9.5«-acre area established primarily for ducks nnd geese, as well as other forms of wildlife lhat may use the sanctuary. "One of the Biological Survey's walerfowl population has Increased." he continued. "Estimates in 191)5 revealed that there were only u':out .10 million of those birds left.

"But we can restore our wildlife :o the extent that it may again play 'an Important, part in our social and .economic life," he said. Tlie wildlife expert added that much remains to be done, by improving environments, lo better living conditions for the wild birds nnd mammals. "After all," he said, "we must deal with present, not pioneer, conditions. Tlie type of wildlife restoration that the Biological Survey.has been doing for many years has closely followed this doctrine." In the development of the national wildlife refuge system, Ihc Biollglca! Survey has given special attention to certain species that are rare or ncnring extinction. Many of these birds have been protected on areas that were established for nlgratory waterfowl. Several of these birds have already made satisfactory- recoveries, according to Mr. Cash, striking examples are the trumpeter swan at the Red Rock Lakes Refuse, Mont.; the Florida crane, al the Okelen- okee Refuge, Oa.; the whooping crane, at the Aransn.5 Refuge, Tex.; the great white heron, nt the Great White Heron Refuge.

The chances arc they will sta»- ger through the 19-10 season and manage to win (he pennant by ten or twelve games. This information, which Is scarcely exclusive, was gained after only one day in St. Petersburg As a matter of truth, it was gained after only one hour ol sitting around nnd talking to Bill Dickey. As the veteran of the team, «s (lie man with the longest term of service with the world champions, it is only natural to assume that the first signs of erosion will appear in Dickey.

Norway will also have 10 ships, It was said. The .survey .studied the situation >articularly from the viewpoint of Ihe Japanese, who hud hoped' to obtain a vastly Creator share of he whale oil market during Brit- sli and German concentration on the war, it is said. British plans "upset" the Japanese hopes, the report said. British Action Surprises "War or no war, the British whaling fleet is carrying on its annual operations in the Antarctic," the survey said. "This activity is conlraiy to earlier expectations and Is somewhat destructive to the hopes of Japanese whalers and to n lesser extent, to those of American lard exporters. "The Antarctic in recent years has supplied more than '80 per cent of the world's whale oil supply. In the. 1938-39 season over 1,050 million whales caught in this area, an amount only slightly less than the record of 1,247 million pounds in the previous season..

Madison Square Garden was virtually sold out for a $'iO,OOD gate for Dec. 1, when Lightweight Champion Lou Ambers was to challenge Henry Armtsrong for Henry's welter crown. Unfortunately a few days before the light Armstrong came whaling with one factory ship purchased from the Norwegians Since that time additional vessels have been constructed in Japan and'added (o the Heel, so that in 19M-39 there were six Japanese ships operating, as compared with ten Norwegian, nine British and six German.
