Ashland didn't fare so well against lhn Bessemer attack last year and were forced to take a. 39 to 17 defeat when these two teams played early in 1940. Coach Butherus should have a. team in the Michigan-Wisconsin conference that will give his opponents plenty of trouble. It not first place, if advance reports can be believed, and by the building of a team around Bill Lucas, last year's star, who scored 115 points, for an average of 7.7 points in 15 games. Matt Roukev, despite his size, makes a good showing on defense and In the offense department last year rang up 31 points. Most of the other players came up from last year's reserves, with one or two additions from the grade schools that will see action in this season's contests. The 1941 Speed Boys schedule is as follows: Nov. 28--At Ashland Dec. 5--At Iron River Dec. 12-; Iron River here Dec. 19--At Marquette Jan. 9--Ironwood here Jan. 13--DePadua here Jan. 23--At WakeCeld Jan. 30--Hurley here Feb. 6--At Ironwood Feb. 13--At Hurley Feb. 17--At DePadua Feb. 20--Wakefleid here Feb. 24--Ashland here Feb. 27--Stambaugh here Following is a list of the 34 players who liave answered Coach Butherus' call for practice, which has lieen in progress for the past two weeks: Kenneth Youngquist Matt Rouker Ed Heikkinen Jon Rice Robert Kosmicki Robert Brown Earl Webber William Velin Albin Fertile Eugene Sandin I,a\vrenco Michela John Brothers Rudy Rome Arthur Koaki Mike Burla William Lucas Pearce Graham Richard Smith John Crawford Cari Olson Joseph Masnaghetti Gerald Koski Howard Kallie Martin Bradley · Howard Peterson Aldo Ercoli Robert Jacobson William Maccani Donald Slrelckek Robert Serbin Julius Velin Ferris Paight Frank Lesky John Lesky SEASON OPENS FOR DEER HUNTERS SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15TH I IS THE TIME; AND EVERY | HUNTER HAS FAVORITE SPOT j Deer hunters still debating the j choice of a spot for hunting this fall; can pick a county to suit their prefer- j enoe from the conservation depart-, ment records of what happened last \ season. j If the hunter wants to he in the i thick of the fun he may choose Ros- | common county, most heavily hunted I in the entire state, with a hunter \ concentration of more than 25 to the I square mile. Good reason for the ] hunter concentration is the county's ' production of 3,162 bucks, more than j ·were killed in any other county. If the hunter takes the "percentage' approach to his choice, upper peninsula counties, particularly Ontonagon, will be attractive. Every other hunter in Ontonagon county last season (51.7 per cent, to be exact) took home a buck, though the, county's total kill was little more than half of Roscommon's In 1340 as for nearly every year for the last 10, tbe upper peninsula county poorest in terms of the per cent of hunters successful was better than the best county in the lower peninsula. But the lower peninsula with more hunters, also produces more ileer--31,320 bucks last year as compared with 20,393 taken north of the, straits. Average concentration for tbe entire state was 5.08 per square mile; i 2 9 . 5 per cent of all licenses got bucks, and the total kill was 51,713 deer, according to the report compiled by the conservation department's game division from hunters game-kill cards. The ten counties producing the most deer, in order: Roscommon, Oscodn, Alcona, Crawford, Ogemaw. Chippewn, Montmorency, Lake, Iron and Luce. The 10 counties with the highest percentage of hunters successful, in order: Ontonagon. Iron, Gogebic, Baraga, Dickinson, Menominee, Schoolcraft, Mackinac, Delta and Chippewa. Extremes of hunter concentration: 25.17 per square mile in Roscommon and 19.07 in Oscoda, compared .with 1.57 in Menominee. " Hurley Downs Saxon In Season's Opener « Coacli Roy Melvin's Midgets ot Hurley, ironed out the kinks in their smooth working basketball machine by taking a weak Saxon team by the score of ,16 to 8 at Saxon last Tuesday night. By hip playing, Dick, lanky Midget renter, demonstrated that other conference opponents will have to do some tnll slapping to keep him from going cm a rampage during the coming season. Dick, was up to his usual form and accounted for 17 of bis team's points, by dropping 7 baskets and three free throws. Guenther, that flahsy former Crystal Fails star, who made, such a line showing in last year's regional tournament at Ironwood, alternated between guard anil forward, and sunk two baskets and a free throw, for 5 points Moselle, Thomas, Stenman, Kirby, Zell, Tomasin. Tocci, and Trembatli, were also used in the lineup. Ramsay Cage Squad Includes 19 Players A call issued by.
