"I told Mrs. Comiskey in a phone conversation yesterday that I had suffered in silence at her said. "But when he publicly tried to discredit me that was different." The 59-year-old general manager referred to Comiskey's alleged public ridicule of Lane for violent language when he stormed to the hox of Will Harridge, American League president, and his umpire supervisor the night of Aug. 26 in Comiskey Park. Lane protested an umpire's decision. The scene led to Lane being fined $500 by Commissioner Ford, Prick. • I have put up with a lot of son's sniping for five years," Lane: indignities trom Chuck, in private, a 48 hour delay, however, the fight-' ters must be weighed again even if they are heavyweights who have no weight limit to make.

Ark., Sept, 30- The Arkansas Game and Pish Commission is at present making every effort to complete the construction work at Black River. Dagmar, Nlmrod, and Big Lake public shooting grounds in order to have them ready for the duck season. A new bulldozer was recently purchased and has been delivered to the Black River Area near Brookings, Arkansas. The new dozer, along with the dragline and dozer which were purchased in 1930, are being used to rush to completion the pond in the rest area and the additional levees in the shooting area. • • • The ISO-acre pond in the rest area will be a permanent impoundment. This permanent body of water will add materially to the attractiveness of the area for waterfowl and will furnish habitat for the varieties of ducks which are not ordinarily attracted to the flooded woodlands. Water has already been pumped into the new impoundment beginning September 19. The Commission expects to completely fill this pond in less than two weeks. The 20,000-gallon-per-minute pump will then be moved to flood the several thousand.acres which will be open for duck hunting. ' Construction work is also under way for the construction of * additional levees and the installation of additional water-control structures In the Big Lake Area. Two 48-inch culverts are being installed near the northern end of the Commission - owned land. These culverts will enable water to flow from the tapper to the lower end. Cross levees will enable water to be retained at various levels on more than half of the 11,600-acre public shooting ground. The 30-Inch culvert which enabled approximately 1,030 acres !o be flood in 1953 and 1954 will also be used to supplement the wnter supply. Tills 30-inch culvert was not able to handle the amount of water which was available in 1953 and 1954, but we will need additional rains before the two 48- inch culverts can be utilized to full capacity. Sufficient rainfall will enable the entire area to be Hooded in approximately three weeks' time. PREPARATION IS also being made to flood major portions ol the Dagmar Area by artificial means. Mrs. E. B, Robinson ol Devalls Bluff has given the Commission an easement which will enable the Commission to construct a canal across her farmland from Cache River to Rob« Lake. Water will be pumped from Cache River to a sufficient height in Robe Lake to permit flooding by gravity flow of the land east of Big Robe Lake. Levees and water-control structers necessary to hold this water were constructed during the past two years. Pumping at the Nimrod Duck. Area will begin the last week in September. We hope to have enough water to attract and hold the first flight of mallards which are expected to arrive during the last half of October. The entire impoundment will probably be filled to approximately three - fourths' capacity by the beginning of duck season on November 7. There is an excellent crop of acorns at Nimrod, and this area shoul be highly attractive to ducks during the 1955 season. There is also a fair crop of acorns at Black River and Big Lake and a poor crop at Dagmar. Early reports show that squirrel hunting should be good on all of these public areas. The squirrel season opens on October 1st.
