~ PlfEASANT FARM — Bernie Janssen poses with Ringneck pheasant on his game bird 10- acre farm that is covered as well as enclosed on all sides by wire. Farm Has Lots Of Game But No Guns Are Allowed By HENRY B. JAMESON Abilene Reflector-Chronicle Written for The Associated Press ABILENE (AP)-There's a 10- acre farm west of Abilene that is entirely covered, as well as enclosed on all sides, by wire. It's a game bird farm that started out a few years ago as a sideline for Bernie Janssen, an energetic young farmer, and has grown into the largest of its kind in Kansas and rates among the top 10 in the country. A visitor to the farm today can enjoy the almost unbelievable sight of 9,000 frisky and colorful game birds, including Ringneck pheasant, quail, chukar partridge and wild turkey. They are separated in wire pens ranging up to an acre each in size and covered by a wire "ceiling" that rests on 10-foot posts. One of the largest enclosures holds some 3,000 partially grown cock pheasants—a real hunter's dream. But no guns are allowed near the place. Janssen and his associates are raising the game birds for the commercial markets, game pre- serves and hunting clubs throughout the country. The farm is located along old U.S. 40 between Abilene and Solomon but they also operate their own shooting preserve on a part of the famous Sun Ranch near Brookville, west of Salina. Partners with Janssen in the flourishing business are Gene Sundgren, manager of the Sun Ranches, and John Rhodes, also of Salina. The venture started in 1957 when Janssen, farming with his brother near Solomon, began raising some pheasant and quail as a sideline to his turkey and wheat farming operations. "I discovered that my highest net income per unit came from the game birds," he explained. "It gave me an idea and I decided to start breeding and raising them commercially." But as the operation grew out of hand Janssen said he soon exhausted his capital. That is when he formed the partnership with Sundgren and Rhodes. They picked a site four miles west of here because of the sandy soil in this particular region which is known as Sand Springs and which produces the famous Sand Springs watermelons and sweet potatoes. They bought a 40-acre water melon farm and covered 10 acres with wire pens. "I might be called one farmer who cultivates weeds," Janssen laughed. The weeds and sunflowers make good feed and cover the birds. He has incubators which hold up to 15,000 pheasant eggs or 25,000 quail eggs. Janssen sets eggs every week from April through August. Every laying hen that he selects undergoes a blood test and other examinations to insure qua! ity. The average pheasant lays from 60 \o 100 eggs a year, he said. Brooder houses are located adjacent to the pens and birds are segregated according to breeds and ages. The birds have plenty of room to exercise and fly but they can't get loose—and they are protected from hawks and other animals. At the present he has about 1, 000 wild turkeys growing here— and when they are turned loose they are really wild. ANOKA, Minn. (AP)-The noisy gaiety of costumed children and pectators drowned out warning cries as a car driven by a dying man plowed into rear ranks of a lalloween parade. "I shouted as loud as I could >ut nobody could hear against the hubub," said Joseph Lindberg, a iivil Defense worker helping po- ice. He also made a futile effort o halt the car after he saw its stricken driver slumped across he wheel. The careening car smashed into a parked car and stopped after caving a trail of felled paraders and the adults Tuesday afternoon. Two women died of their injuries. Otto Erickson, 76, Anoka, was dead when police pulled him from .he car. The car halted almost in ront of a mortuary, the body slumped over the steering wheel .0 send out a continuous horn blast. Eight were hospitalized, some in critical condition, and police estimated another score were reated. It was the 42nd annual Halloween celebration staged by Anoka, a town of 10,000 just north of Minneapolis. Some 5,000 children Back Of Week Is Bridegroom ~ MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Sandy Stephens of Minnesota, a brand new bridegroom picked as Back of the Week in The Associated Press poll, isn't quite ready to fully credit his newfound football fortunes to his week-old marriage. "I don't know yet," said the mild-mannered young man with the bruising style of play. "If things don't go right with Michigan Stale Saturday, the experts just may reverse themselves." The Gophers coaching staff has kiddingly attributed Stephens' spurt to his marriage to an attractive St. Paul, Minn., girl two days before the Michigan victory last Saturday. In that game, the 215-pound whirling dervish passed and ran the Gophers from seemingly sure defeat to a 23-20 come-from-behind victory. Despite legging 63 yards for one touchdown, passing 45 yards for another and throwing for four points on two pass-conversions, Stephens still was pressed for the weekly AP honor. Close behind him were John Hadl of Kansas, Dave Hoppmann of Iowa State, Galen Hall of Penn State, Bob Ferguson of Ohio State, Ron Miller of Wisconsin, Larry Benz of Northwestern, Pat Trammell of Alabama and Jay Wilkinson of Duke.

J19-574 ALIRIO DIAZ Guitarist In Concert At Ottawa University Classical Guitarist Alirio Diaz' interpretations of the great classical masters — Bach and Scar- latti in particular — have earned him great renown in Europe and North America. He will be heard in a concert in the Ottawa University auditorium at 8 p.m. tomorrow. The con- Knicks Win Another One By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The New York Knickerbockers, who won only 21 of 79 games last season, made it four victories in six starts Tuesday night, beating the Cincinnati Royals 131-127 on a fourth-quarter binge sparked by Willie Naulls. In the second game of the doubleheader at St. Louis, the St. Louis Hawks continued in their tailspin—taking a 107-90 drubbing from the Syracuse Nationals. This from a club that has lost only back courtman Lenny Wilkens from a veteran squad that rolled to its fifth straight Western Divi- ison title last season. The Knicks made up a four- point deficit in the last period. Naulls scored 37 points, 12 in the fourth quarter, when New York poured in 34 points. The Hawks trailed throughout in the nightcap of the only other NBA activity and finally fell apart, scoring but 16 points in the last period. Hal Greer's jump shooting—he hit 8-for-8 and scored 18 points in the third quarter alone—did the big job for Syracuse. cert is free, and everyone's in vited. Though this aspect of his ar would be sufficient alone to dis tinguish Diaz as an uncommon personality in the world of music, there is added wealth in his repertoire: the variety of Latin-American music which he in eludes in his concerts. There is perhaps no other artis who can give such a wide range of music from that fountain o; inspiration. The guitar seems indeed to have withheld no secrets from Alirio Diaz. It has always spoken the natural and expressive language of the Latin-American peoples, and in Alirio Diaz' hands il becomes an inspired voice in the performance of folk - music or works based on folk-music. This music offers the most va ried and beautiful range of hues from the melancholic cadences of the Incas to the rhythms o Brazilian or Venezuelan dances the Argentinian "vidalas" and the songs of Mexico. More and more, our contempor ary composers are drawn to the guitar for the infinite wealth o expression it offers; there are several concertos written for gui tar and orchestra. Alirio Diaz has won enthusiastic applause for his playing of these concertos. Tragedy Strikes At A Gay Parade from area schols were in the parade. Police Chief Cliff Petrick estimated about 7,000 persons lined streets as the youngsters showed off witch, goblin and clown costumes. A fine truck which had been at the rear of the parade was called away by an alarm. "Nobody can say for sure," Petrick said, "but if that truck had been in place that car might have hit it first and nobody would even have been hurl.." Winning BattJe Against Fire B SIERRA MADRE, Calif. (AP)Fire fighters succeeded today in gaining 80 per cent control of a brush fire that burned over $2 1 million worth of watershed above this Los Angeles suburb. A U.S. Forest Service official said 1,260 acres of brush were blackened by the blaze. Residents who evacuated their hillside homes—many in the $25,000 to $50,000 bracket—returned , Tuesday. Evacuation Plan Is Abandoned By STERLING F. GREEN WASHINGTON (AP) - The federal government has abandoned, for all practical purposes, the idea of evacuating city dwellers ahead of any oncoming nuclear bombs and missiles. The Pentagon will not discourage local and state Civil Defense authorities from making evacuation plans if they choose, said a spokesman for the Office of Civil Defense. But he added, "Evacuatirn certainly takes second place to fallout shelters in Washington's planning." The fact now recognized, but never clearly acknowledged previously, is that fleeing into open countryside—even if there was ample warning time—would not protect populations from the major nuclear hazard, radioactive fallout.
