" 4 7y7y 1 ,n'lffe A The "slass snake" actually Is a lizard, native to the Southern and Mid-western states. It is readily distinguished from true snakes by its well-developed eyelids and ear-openings. This serpentine lizard averages about two feet in length and is about an inch in thickness. It has no legs and makes its progress by a lateral undulated motion. It has a smooth belly which handicaps it in getting about, while the true snake has understates which provide traction and permit It to move much more easily . A number of lizards lose their The Sportsmen's Corner: "All Outdoors" Amateur Trap-shooting League holds its second shoot today at the North Park Skeet and Trap Range.

The severed portion does not grow back, as Is commonly believed. However, a new and somewhat smaller appendage does replace the severed portion. This occurs in a short time, and is responsible for the false belief that the "glass snake" if broken into small pieces will put itself together again. The movements of this lizard are slow and deliberate. It is easily the victim of Us enemies and its chief hope of escape lies in its tail which makes up nearly two-thirds of the body length. The struggles of the tail usually occupy the attention of its captor. and Class B under 15 years. Fee, 35c which includes NRA fee, registration, supper and evening's entertainment.

Cash and"" merchandise By JOHN MOCK And VERNON LIND The king snake, which is one of its chief enemies, insists on swallowing its prey head first. For this it tries to maneuver the lizard into a suitable position. However, at the crucial moment the "glass snake" abandons its tail in its enemies' mouth. During the resultant confusion, the lizard attempts to burrow underground. The "glass snake" divides its time above and below the ground, feeding upon insects, worms, slugs and other subterranean life. On the surface It will feed upon birds' eggs, which it breaks with its strong jaws and laps up with its flat, forked tongue. prizes. All sportsmen welcome.

I'm wondering if you could devote the space again to present this to many readers who may like to have it. 1 Don't attend meetings; If you do, always come late. Z Always find fault with the officers and members. 3 Never accept .an office. It is easier to criticize than to do things. Be sure to get sore if you are not appointed to a committee; if you are, be sure to do nothing. 4 Heckle speakers and talk to those beside you during the meeting, telling them the speaker is talking through his hat. 5 If asked by the chairman for your opinion, tell him you have nothing to say. 6 Do only what is absolutely necessary. When others willingly and unselfishly help the club, be sure to howl that the club Is being run by a clique. 7 Belittle your club at every opportunity and apologize for activities. 8 Never bring guests to meetings or try for new members. Then yell about the club dying. 9 Insist that only what was done in the past is correct; , changes can only be made for the worse. 10 After the meetings, tell everyone how things ought to be done but refuse to New Restriction Is Stops for 12 Hours Before Trout Season Begins By JOHN G. MOCK " Here they are, you fishermen and women! 1 The rules by which you will be governed in the 1942 fishing season include . the following regulations : The trout season will open Wednesday, April 15, and close Friday, July 31. The "bass" or warm-water game fish season will become legal Wednesday, July 1, arid . close Nov. 30. Among the recently-enacted restrictions a radically new departure from the old-time standards -is that which applies to the time of the opening hour of the trout season. On April 14, at 5 p. m all pan-fishing must cease on streams stocked with trout. This closed period continues to 5 a. m. on the morning Mr. Mock treble or gang hook is considered one hook, but only as long as the treble or gang hook is an integral part of the artificial lure. Bait-Fish, Fish-Bait Regulations Under an amendment to the Sunday fishing law, bait-fish and fish-bait may be taken on Sunday with the same devices used on week days two rods and lines, with not more than three hooks attached to each line; a dip net or minnow seine not over four feet square or four feet in diameter; and a minnow trap with not more than one opening, which shall not exceed one inch in diameter. The rods, hooks and lines must be under the immediate control of the person using them. Possession limits on bait-fish and fish-bait remain unchanged. The fisherman is permitted 35 of one species and 50 of th com-' bined kinds. Under this regulation, a fisherman may have 25 minnows and 25 soft-shelled crawfish, or "crabs," as they are commonly called. Should he have 35 minnows, then he could legally have only 15 "crabs." Removal of fish-bait and bait-fish from streams for commercial purposes is forbidden. Unless in possession of a propogating license, no person may sell bait-fish or fish-bait. Minnow boxes anchored in a spring, stream, pond or lake, must have the owner's name, address and fishing license number attached. If maintained by more than one person, each section must have the owner's name, address and license number. Open seasons, size limits and daily possession limits are as follows: , Brook, brown and rainbow trout, April 15 to July 31; not less-than six inches in length; combined species. 10. Bass, small and largemouth; July 1 to Nov. 30; not less than nine inches in length; combined species, six. Pike-perch, called wall-eyed pike or Susquehanna salmon; July 1 to Nov. 30; not less than 12 inches in length; limit, six. Pickerel, July 1 to Nov. 30; not less than 12 inches in length; limit, six. Muskellunge and great northern pike, July 1 to Nov. 30; not less than 22 inches in length; limit, two. Any Time, And Any Size The following species may be taken at anytime of the year and without regard to size, the same daily possession limit applying in all instances, 15 : Yellow perch, rock bass, also known as goggle-eye; the lesser bass, also called white, croppie, strawberry and calico; bluegills and sunfish, catfish, suckers, carp, chubs and fallfish.' - The combined daily possession limit is 25. For example: If a fisherman took 10 trout and six black bass, he could take no more than nine of any other species. If he took the legal daily limit of 15 carp, he would be limited to the taking of 10 additional catfish. Either way, he would have his combined daily possession limit. Leaving the inland waters for Lake Erie, fishermen will find but six species listed as game fish. The season on all but two opens June 15 and closes Nov. 30. Exceptions are rock bass and sunfish, which may be taken anytime, along with the food or commercial fish. Bass, small and largemouth, must be nine inches or more In length and the combined daily possession limit is six. Grass pike, any species; 12 inches in length; combined species daily limit, eight. Muskellunge, western and great northern pike; not less than 22 inches in length; daily limit, two. Croppie, strawberry, or calico bass, no size restriction. The daily limit is 15. Sunfish and rock bass, open all year and without size limits, restricted to 15 daily. Frog, Tadpole Seasons Open July 2 The frog season opens July 2 and closes Oct. 31. The same applies to tadpoles. Fifteen is the daily limit on both. Fishermen are urged to note that neither the frog nor the tadpole may be taken on Sunday. ' Another set of regulations not yet presented are those applying to Pymatuning Reservoir. Before these become available a meeting of officials of ' Pennsylvania and Ohio, a Joint board with jurisdiction over the border water, must be held. As soon as they are established, we will note them here. The red, white and blue combination again constitutes the colors of the 1942 fishing license. Dont forget to sign It after you've purchased it. Questions take an active part in the club or accept any responsibilities. W. G., WASHINGTON What can I do to remove rust spots or pits from the barrel of my shotgun? There is nothing you can do to remove pit holes left by rust spots. When rust was removed, some of the metal went with it and this cannot be replaced. If not too badly pitted, the gun may be used. It will lead rapidly in 'such condition. Neither will it do the work it used to. It is the price of careless handling. The only remedy, when pitted badly, is a new barrel. P. R. M., CITY May a revolver be used in deer hunting? Could a deer be killed with a revolver? The answer to both Is yes, assuming that a single bullet or ball cartridge is being used. The Smith A Wesson .357 Magnum, with a 158 -grain bullet, having a muzzle velocity of 1510 feet per second, certainly could kill a deer over a rather surprising range if hit vitally. N. H-. CITY What is the mark of the five-man world's champion trapshooting team? We know that Joe Hiestand is one of the "members, but we Ye not sure of the others, nor the score which was made. As far as we know, the world's record five-man squad broke 498 in 500 at the Yorklyn Gun Club, Yorklyn, DeL, in 1935. The members and their marks were: Joe Hiestand, Hillsboro, lOOx 100; Hale Jones, Alton, 111., lOOx 100; Ned Ully. Stanton, Mich, 100x100; Art Cnscaden. Tampa, Fla 99x100; and BiU Eldred, Cincinnati, 99x100. On second That All -Pan-Fishing of the 15th. The regulation makes no exception and includes all species, thus no fishing of any kind is permitted during the- 12-hour period previous to the official opening of the trout season. ' Other regulations which might well be emphasized are those applying tp fishing while in a boat. J To cast from a moving motorboat is illegal. Trolling with a motorboat on inland "waters is a violation. It is unlawful to row for fishermen, unless the oarsman has a fishing license. To operate a motorboat more than eight miles per hour within 100 feet of shore, or within 10O feet of a buoyed fishing ground, anchored fishing boat or pleasure craft, channel or bathing beach, is unlawful. The "burr" regulation pertaining to casting or trolling plugs stands. Three points on a Answered By JOHN G. HOCK thought, it appears that we've seen Lela Hall wearing a chevron designating her as a member of the world's , champion squad which broke 499 out of 500. We will check this with Jimmy Robinson of Sports Afield, the nation's leading writer on trap and skeet. For the time being, the 498 of 500 is good enough to settle any argument. R. R. E., LATROBE I have heard it said that artificial lures came about when a disgusted fisherman threw an empty tobacco can onto the surface of the water where he was fishing. A fish struck it as it sunk. Can you verify this? It's the first time we heard it said of a tobacco can. On various occasions in the past, we've heard the same thing said of a cigaret box, such as were rather common a number of years ago. The color, or probably its action, was supposed to have induced the fish to strike. An old version of this belief is that a fisherman accidentally dropped a spoon overboard while he was having lunch. He saw a fish strike at the bright object as it made its way to the bottom. Later, he attached a hook and had success. Probably that's why spinners and wobblers are still called spoons. 4m J 1 MAKES DEBUT SOON Wembly Victorious, red pomeranian pup recently acquired by Mrs. H. L. Bethune of Edge wood from the famous Wembly Kennels in Toronto, Ont., will start his show career at the Morris and Essex event this spring. The pup is closely related to International Champion Wembly's Tom Tit. V The Dog World Dogs Play Big Part In Sportsmen's Show By JOSEPH D. O'CONNELL The Pennsylvania Sportsmen's Association exhibit and show at the Hunt Armory, February 12 to 23, also under the sponsorship of The Pittsburgh Press, will feature the dog as part of its program. Dave Irwin, of Milf ord, Pa., who has had many exciting and adventurous experiences, particularly in the Arctic region, will be in charge of the show. He will have with him Hollis Richardson, who was in charge of 75 huskies during Admiral R. E. Byrd's famous trip to Little America a few years ago. Richardson is directing the dog section of the program. Several canine exhibitions have been planned. Training Exhibit Carded Miss Elinor Mann, head trainer of the Pittsburgh Dog Training Club, will put on an exhibition with obedience trained dogs. A mut and pet show, limited to boy and girl handlers 16 years of age and under, will be put on, the winners of which will receive prizes. A sled team of Malemutes (huskies) will be present at all shows. Don Tyrrell, of Ligonier, prominent trainer of dogs, will put on an exhibition with two black Labradors and a Chesapeake, retrieving live game. Hunting Dogs to Show Henry Bowman, of Sewickley, will give an exhibition with his pointers and setters in a simulated corn field. These and several other features of interest to the dog lover are being arranged. Bethunes Acquire Famous Pomeranians The war has closed a famous Canadian Kenner of Pomeranians and, as. result, Mrs. Howard L. Bethune," Edgewood, has acquired Ch. Wembly Centenial Boy a red sable, sire ofer outstanding Int. Ch. Wembly Tom Tit, sensational red Pom that has done much to put Pittsburgh on the dog map. Boy will head the stud list. A breed matron, Wembly's Sadie, full sister of Tom Tit just passed her puppyhood, was also bought, in whelp to an outstanding sire. Wembly Victorious, a nine-month-old red dog weighing 3 pounds concludes the purchase. As soon as he is acclimated and in full coat he will start his career among the fast eastern show dogs. He should make a name for himself as he is .undoubtedly championship material. Mrs. Christian Hager, Braddock, leading local authority on toy breeds who saw the pup soon after it arrived in Pittsburgh, waxed enthusiastic over him and predicted a brilliant show career. The Bethune Kennel has fortified its English bloodlines with these importations and, barring accidents, should continue as leader In the breed.

I have a 3 -months-old rjarbs- hunde pup that tries to bite person's clothes ajid lingers. Is there any way of oreaKing mm ot the haoit. or do you think that he may have a mean, vicious streak in him? What is a good puppy diet .'. K. if... uormont. A. Don't worry abont the pup s dis position at this time. He is too young yet to form ban habits. If he persists in his biting, paddle him with a folded news paper, ah pups one In play and you must be sure that he is hitinsr in earnext before correcting bun. Feed him - four times and give him a teaspoon of cod liver oil every day w ith a half-teaspoon of Squibb Vinnate. Give him all the milk he will drink and mix in rahtum to make a gruel. Once a week feed him a poached rgc Also give a veal knuckle to chew on or Mime powdered ealium. Have a bowl of f reh water always available. Q. I have a aeven-months-old Collie bitch that marks all the time. I have whipped her with a rolled newspaper and used an anti-bark bridle and have even locked her up... but whim these methods do work for a little while, she continues to bark. Do you know of some trainer around .Pittsburgh who could break ner. u. a., verona. A. Bitches as a role are more noisy than dogs. Puppies are alo more prone to bark than grown dogs. The anti- bark bridle is a sure means of stopping the dog from barking hut it must be used for a long time. It takes lots of patience to cure the dog and you are using the only methods known to cure her. Give her more time and continue the use of the bridle. Take it off only at meal time, tvnen the dog realizes that yon don't want her to bark she will stop it. Obedience training is the best way to make a dog nnderstand. That is all a trainer can do for you. Take your dog to the Pittsburgh Dog Training Clnb at o83 Forbes Jt.. Wednesday, at H n. m.. where sua will be thoroughly obediem-e trained.

With the exception of one game the Muny League first half aeaeon has been completed but anyone e pecting the second half to be a repe tition of the first Is mistaken. . In the first place, the league pea sonnel has been changed. Mule Norris, which finished in fonrth place, has been replaced by Y.M.H.A., a ball club that may no be any stronger than Norris but ean be counted on to make trouble. Too, more games will be played on the smaller Warrington 000. Double-headers on Tuesday evenings will be continued at West Penn Center and on Thursdays, at Warrington, but the Sunday West Penn games have been eliminated. Twin-bills will be staged afternoons and evenings at Warrington, instead, which should benefit the ta&ex, slower clubs like Serb Federation. " Serbs May Be Hard to Beat Serbs, even though they finished in a sixth-place . tie with Young Republicans, gave every indication late in the first half that they will be the club to beat from now on. For at least two weeks they expect to have the services of Pres Mara- vich, high-scoring Davis-EHkins ace who has been playing with the Detroit Eagles. F. O. P. Rates Favorite Fraternal Order of Police, of course, rates the favorite's role because of its first-half success, but the first-half winner failed to repeat tha first two years the league was organized and chances are the Police won't be able to do it either. Lehenys should be up there all the way and Argonne could be very much in the title chase, but St. Joseph's Lyceum appears to have, a one-way ticket to the loop's cellar. Saints and Argonne wind up the league's unfinished business at 8:15 o'clock tonight on the Warrington floor, while Lehenys oppose tha Y.M.HA. at 9:30 in an exhibition.. - t Stephans Leads Loop Scoring Johnny Stephans of F. O. P. barely nosed out teammate Roger Jorg-ensen for the first-half individual scoring championship of the Municipal League. Stephans finished with 65 field goals, 25 free throws for 155 points, while Jorgensen bagged 58 field goals and 38 fouls for 154 points. Third place went to another F.O.P. man, Whitey Fowle, who netted 125 points in 13 games. Fourth was Ed Milkovich of the Serbs, but Milkovich's 121 points were tallied in nine contests to give him the best game average. 13.4.
