Tuesday, November 2!>, 1038. Death Claims Both as Bull Moose Lock Horns in Primitive Battle for Their Mate STAR, HOPE. ARKANSAS ® By iHLf, GLRASON NRA Service Special Correspondent KOKADJO, Mo.—A spectacle, which so far as in known, has never been witnessed by H white man, look place recently in the wilderness that sprawls north of this fnr-flug village when two bull moose, believed to have weighed flOO pounds each, locked horns , and died in the battle. I Ed Lowell, gn'ir.e warden, and Rny O'Donnell, a guide, found the remains' of the warriors on n bloody and biidly I lorn battle ground. They found thy ] huge heads pressed lightly togcththor with Ihe anllers so tightly locked that four men, were unable to pry, pull, or pound Ihem apart. This is the first time Hint such a discovery has boon made in Maine's 15,000,000 acres of forest land for many I years. Although dead only three days at the j most, nothing remained of the animals ; but the bends, hides, and legs. Nearly all of Ihe flesh and bones had been devoured or dragged away by i bears, bobcats, foxes, hawks, owls, and other furred and feathered, predators i of the big woods. [ The death struggle was apparently j brought about by the call of a cow f moose that echoed through the forest ,' and instead of attracting only one bull, : ' brought two. Speaking of Unities of the Century I Old Indians who have witnessed death battles between bull moose say they are Ihe most horrible and sickening spectacles imaginable. The female seeking n ninte lifts its huge antlerless head and ullers n long, P raspy cry. "A bull within hearing will answer the call with a deep bellowing followed by n series of loud grunts. The cow, holding its position, continues lo call, and the bull, answering at intervals, n.'oves rapidly through the wooded hills. The calling continues until the animals are united. Frcquntly the call of the cow moose is heard by two bulls. This usually menus trouble . . . results in n fierce conflict in which at least one of the animals and .sometimes both, are killed. Arriving at the spot where the cow is waiting, the bulls, seeing each other for the first time, become enraged. Snorting and grunting angrily, the ginnls immediately prepare lo fight. Bull's Hmd-On Charge Would \Vicck Automobile Slowly th?y circle, tramping down bushes and other obstacles. With manes bristling, nostrils spread, and he/ivy heads lowered, they charge each other with every ounce of their gre:il power. There is a resounding crash as the sprawling millers- of the brutes collide. When il is considered that one head- on charge by a bull moose will completely wreck a moving automobile, some idea of the terrific impact when two moose come together, can bo conceived. For hours the monsters bntlle furiously . . . circling, ripping, slashing, and charging.' Frequently the animals' eyes are gouged out. Their huge bodies arc torn and bleeding but they fight lo a finish. Nothing but deatli can call a halt. Another terrific head-on lunge echoes through the forest and the huge antlers become locked. The harder Ihe animals try to pull apart the lighl- er Ihe deathlock becomes. Finally one of Ihe brutes, becoming completely exhausted, drops to the ground, dragging the other with him. Locked head to head, necks broken and great bodies heaving and steaming, the animals await death. Attracted by the clamor, flesheatcrs of the forest gather like fiends for the feast. When two bull moose hear the call of a mate, this is what is likely to be left . . . antlers so tightly locked that four men cannot l>ry, pull, or pound them apart. .Ed Lowell, above, game warden, discovers these remains of eiants of the woods near Kokadjo, Me.

Deer Supply Smaller in North Arkansas MOUNTAIN HOME, Ark.—(/P)Deer hunters who trek into the famed sylamore district of O/ark National Forosl when the season opens December 1 may not find as much game, as they did last year. Game Warden George Green, who patrols the area, said from the number of deer lie had seen and deer signs in the woods, lie believed there were fewer mature deer in the territory this year than there had been for suvral yars past. "I -see more young door, though, than I have ever noticed so late in the year," Green said. "Some have nit outgrown their spots yet." Running of deer with dogs in the Sylamore district will be prohibited under a new edict this season. Sportsmen here blame such hunting in the past for scattering the herds. Under the new regulation, the huntsmen can either go "still hunting" alone or em- ploye other men to do the driving for him and try for his kill at a stand in some low gap. Green warned hunters against getting into game refuges which cover about one-sixth of Ibo area in which deer are most numerous.

She Is one of n number of prominent Amcricnn women "guest editors," nf Huth Millctt's populnr column, "We, the Women," By GRACE LUMPKIN 'Copyright, 1938, NKA Service, Inc.) A certain a'nVount of emotional upheaval is natural and necessary in life and in people. But many of • us, especially women, are not able to check ourselves once we let loose. A wife decides in a certain situation that her husband Jias been unjust, mean and cruel. As she broods over the thought of his meanness, hot indignation mounts in her breast until finally all her angry emotion overflows into words. And the flow of words is only accelerated when lie does not take her spiteful arguments seriously or when her nagging forces him into a position of defense. At thai point, after she has told him exactly and completely what is wrong with him, ho loses patience, and a real estrangement may begin. If she could stop at that point she might avert much unnecessary InYiscry for both of them. But, unfortunately, too often she doesn't. She tells him ALL her opinions of him in no uncertain terms, She complains to her friends of his cruel treatment—thus becoming disloyal to the man she is supposed to love. She doesn't stop her wild dive into the depths of emotion and ask -herself, "What led up to all this?" If she did, chances are she couldn't remember—most spats start over inconsequential matters. She is not jusl enough to a.sk "Did I do anything that might have provoked his 'meanness'?" She need not be denied the satis- faclion of calling her husband some of the names she has Ihought of that fitted him. The names will probably be apt and to the point, because a man on the defensive can be one of the most iwitaling creatures that nature can produce. But a woman on the offensive is not exactly the fairest ornament of nature, either. And she can stop the offensive for a litle, look back and see what she herself has done to bring about the situation. Then if she can find a laugh somewhere in the debris of the emotional hurricarte, she will have made an investment in self-respect and respect from her husband that will pay big dividends in future happiness.

Chisox Pitcher's Leg Is Amputated Operation Performed on Monty Stratton After Gun Mishap Dallas, .Texas—(/P)—Monday Slrat- lon, 25-year-old Texan ace of the Chicago White Sox pitching staff Monday underwent an operation for amputation of his right leg at St. Paul's hospital, his baseball career ended and a hard fight yet to win for his life. The leg severed at the knee after a hasty decision when it was noted during Ihe clay lhat the athlete had regained strength remarkabliy with the aid of two bliod transfusions Sunday night and Monday. He had been in a very weakened condition from the loss of blood caused by an accidental pis- toi shot wound while hunting rabbits on his mother's farm at Greenville Sunday. Blood for the Iransfusions was given by two of his seven brothers, Hardin and Roland. , After the amputation, Dr. A. R. Thomaccon said Monday night Strat- tbn's condition appeared satisfactory under, the circumstances, although it was, still critical and it would require another 24-hours"to determine how well his system would respond.to the operation. Barring complications, the surgeon said Stratton should "puJl through." The accident occurred when a pistol he was carrying in a scsbbard discharged accidentally and sent a bullet into his thigh and downward, severing the large artery behind Ihe knee. "Each, of the last two seasons, Stratton, a right-heiider, has been the leading pitcher on the White Sox staff with 15 wins and five losses in 1937 and 15 wins and nine defeats last season.
