Jersey Squirrel Hunters Report 'Limit* Bags JERSEYVILLE — Squirrel hunters in the Jersey county area have been numerous since the opening day of the season Aug. 1. A variety of hunting fortunes have been reported. Among hunters obtaining the limit on the opening day is Charles Scott of the Otter Creek township vicinity. Scott bagged the daily limit of five and got another three the following day. Jersey Circuit Clerk Richard Burrows reported bagging three squirrels on the opening day. Two of the animals were young and excellent for eating, but the third was a tough and sinewy old cus- jomer. "He must have been in the woods a number of years," Burrows reported. "He was too old to dress for cooking so we threw him away." Another local hunter had miscel- laneous luck. While on Ms first trip of the present open season, Albert Sackman bagged several squirrels and in addition shot a red fox which he encountered in a woodland pasture area. Squirrels have been moving from their summer habitat during the past week. In localities where the animals were plentiful two weeks ago, some such districts are now reported as completely "squirrel- less." "They have a habit of moving a lot during this time of year," stat- ed Russell Wells of JerseyviUe. Wells hunted early in the morning of the opening day and bagged several. He tried it again Thursday and reported, "We didn't see a squirrel during pur second trip." Australia will issue four stamps to .commemorate the Melbourne Olympics. 1 A British motor car company will establish an assembly plant in Egypt. DANCE AT TODAY LAST TIMiS!
