Correct luibits of gun handling, shown on the left, are being demonstrated at sportsmen's shows and other meetings throughout the state in a conservation department campaign to keep hunters properly respectful of their firearms. Among elementary rules is one that guns should never be loaded in camp, home or car, out should be handled as carefully as if they were. In the field guns should never be carried with the safety off, nor ever allowed to point at anything the hunter does not intend to shoot. Fence climbing should be attempted only after the guns have been handed to a partner, or pushed through and laid on the ground by the hunter who is alone.

Penalties were frequent as the linemen were over-anxious to get into the thick of battle and the teams suffered numerous five-yard 5 yard line.

Another pass failed which were as rare as the dodo bird, as it was deemed too dangerous with such it fast foe to combat.

His every -word was taken up and repeated hundreds of times; his every action photographed by every soldier who could sight a camera view-finder. Joe stood in the enlisted men's Service Club watching the Hogue twins, California boxers appearing on the Louis exhibition program, batting a ping-pong ball from one net side to the other. Fifteen minutes earlier he had spoken at a non-com meeting as part of his program which was taking him from Army camp to Army camp in the 6th Corps Area. The Hogue twin's game pulled up to a close. Louis, standing with Julian Black, his manager, and his trainers, answered an enlisted man's questions. He spoke quietly and matter-of-factly, "Yes, I play a little ping-pong." Dropping his paddle on the table, the losing Hogue twin stepped aside as Louis moved to the table, picked up the paddle, and began a warming- up exchange with the winner. Louis was dressed in brown slacks and a loose blue sweater. Beside the Army men, his height and bulk loomed tremendous with shoulders thick as ham hocks. Twisting and whipping the paddle, his movements were quick hut his accuracy sometimes poor. Poker-faced, almost sullen, he played as though lire-occupied. He spoke infrequently, and then only to announce the score as it stood. Louis moved lightly, with amazing ease. He was as completely natural and at ease in the Service Club as though he had been inducted already and for months had played there. He won, 21-G.

Marie, Mich. He is quoted as .saying that "the project is essential to maintaining efficient transportation on the Great Lakes for handling iron ore. coal and grain." The recent halt in commerce of deeply laden boats at the Sault by reason of the collapse of one arm of a lift railroad bridge over the north channel cut off the Davis and Sabin locks from use. The Weitzel lock is in the south channel and if it had been up to date would have saved much time for many boats during the trainers, walked down the hillside aisle to the ring.
