HUNTERS WARNED TO OBEY THE LAW Some Hunters Reported to be Selling Quail to Hotels, Restaurants and Individuals Reports have reached his office' to e enect some persons are selling quail to hotels, restaurants and hf- dividual, contrary to state laws, Richard Lieber, director of conserva tion in Indiana, announces, h! sound l- " ing warning that wardens have bee instructed to spare no efforts to stop this illicit traffic or commercializing the consumption of game birds. "The conservation department is enforcing the state's fish and game laws and most certainly will bend every possible effort to convict parties selling quail," Mr. Lieber says. He pointed out that largely due to strict law enforcement this best of Hoosier game birds have increased in number. Real sportsmen realize that the present bag limit of 15 birds day is unusually large and will not exceed nor will they knowingly permit utJ-sportsmanlike shooters to do so either, he declares. The law provides a mini, mum fine of $10 for every quail sold. FOX POPULATION NOT DIMINISHED Big Monroe-Center Township Drive Nets One Lonely Rcnard Which Makes Its Escape More thai 1,000 residents of Grant county, armed with clubs and horns, took part in the Monroe-Center town ship fox drive Thursday morning. But they didn't get any foxes. Failure to abide by the rules laid dov:J to govern the hunt is given as the main reason for the failure to bag the foxes. Several of the wily animals were seen, and when, after beating through all the prescribed territory, the hunter came to the central point. one fox was inside the lines. In the excitement of the moment an opening was left in the line and the fox escaped. However, those who took part in the hunt declare it was great sport, at.Vl since it has been proved beyond doubt that there are foxes to be found, aether- drive has -been ar ranged and will be held on next Saturday. Practically the same rules will be observed in this drive, and the same captains will have charge Supervisor- of the drive desire to im - press on the minds of those who may take part in the comitlg hunt the necessity of adhering) closely to the regulations, and they believe in that case several foxes will be bagged. T0 make plans for the next drire, the farmers of Center township will meet at the Roosevelt school next Tuesday night, arM the farmers of Monroe township will meet at the Center school on Wednesday night.

The fact that The News went to press early Thursday morning or account of the Thanksgiving holiday, prevented giving a detailed account of the basket ball game Wednesday night between the Academy arM Lagro teams. The Academy "fighting five" won a splendid victory, and the players were heartily cheered 0n by the big crowd that packed the giym. to standing room, the crowd including the members of the Kiwai7is club and their ladies. The battle started with Lagro scoring a neat basket from the field, followed by another one a few seconds later. At this stage of the contest Fairmount offense opened up and before the half had ended the Academy five was leadirg with a wide margin by the score of 15-7. At the start of the second half the Lagr0 team came back on the floor with the determination of winning and set about the task by using some clever basket ball and tied the. score at 17 each. At this stage of the game, time vas called. After the game was resumed with seven mirAites still to play the Academy boys giot together and with some very classy team work and goal shooting, Tan the score up to twenty-five with Lagro only able to cage one more basket before the report of the timer's gun. In this game the Quakers showed the best basket ball of any time dur-ii'sr the nresent season. While thev (showed a decided improvement in every department of the game there are still many rough spots to be ironed out in the near future. The game was fast and very interesting from the sound of the referee's matched with neither team having) a decided advantage till the last few : moments of play when FairmouJit stepped out and ended the game with a very neat rally. A team that rallied like Fairmount did in the last few mirAites is the making of a championship five. Too much can not be said of the fine playing of the Fairmount team, tak ing into consideration that the team is made up of four new men while Lagro had a veteran' team and out weighed the Academy team 15 pounds to the man. They made up for this by their speedy passing game which at times during the crash was very good. All of the Fairmount team played well with McCombs as the best scorer with eight baskets. Thompson and McClanahan were the stars for Lagiro with uncanry eyes, being able to tick le the draperies from all angles of the hardwood. The lineup and summary are as follows: Fairmount Rich Cecil McCombs Lamm Brewer Lagro Thompson Hunt McClanahan Forwards Center Wiley . Edwards Guards Field goals McCombs 8, Cecil 3, Rich 1, Thompson 4, McClanahan 4, Hunt 1. Foul goals McCombs 1, McClanahan 1. Referee Parker. In a curtain raiser for the evening the Academy second team defeated the Freshmen team 12 to 10 in a hard fought game. Both teams were evenly matched with neither ore having much advantage. The second team out weighed the Freshmen twenty pounds to the man, but they made up for this by their speedy playing.
