October 14, 1942 THE IRONWOOD TIMES, IRONWOOD, MICHIGAN Page Eleven SPORTS • OUTDOOR • TIMES * Edited by R. B. Trout, Ironwood Times staff writer Those of you who may have been fortunate and driven In Western Minnesota or the Eastern part of South Dakota will appreciate the thrill received '.when you see those beautiful pheasants go through their maneuvers. The South Dakota pheasant land surrounds the home community of George S. Henry 6f the National Metals Bank. No fall ever passes that he does not wander back home to get in his share of pheasant hunting. This year he took Gordon (Picky) Scott with him on the hunting trip. John Kennedy, Marco Gerovao and many other local people whose names we have not been given were in the Wahpeton, N. D., and Breckenridge, Minn., territory. Gordon Connor, who in company with Irving Voyer and John P. Victor, hunted pheasants in the vicinity of.Clark, S. D., told the Wakefield Rotarians a little about his experiences. Connor, Voyer and Victor were highly enthusiastic about the hunting declaring , that birds were exceedingly plentiful and that anybody, whether a hunter or not, could get his limit every day. While most hunting was done by driving the birds through' the corn-, fields, many hunters hunted only from their cars on the highways. Mr. Connor explained that in 1882 a pair of pheasants was introduced into South Dakota from Oregon. With protection for ten years, and an opened season since that time, conservation people of South Dakota estimate there are four million birds in that state. The men recommended the hunting, not only because it was an inexpensive sport, but that hunting could be done under the moat favorable weather conditions. Mr. Victor explained that hunting started at noon each day, which enabled him to spend his evenings at the show or in church and still have plenty of time to sleep in the morning before hunting time. The trio made their headquarters at a farm house near Clark, S. D. The people were hospitable, living and eating conditions superior, the men reported. Late fall spearing of ciscoes, whitefish and carp, permitted because this food supply cannot be tapped by ordinary hook-and-line angling, will begin shortly in 29 counties, the conservation department reports. Last season nearly 1,000 fishermen bought the special $1 fall spearing licenses which are issued only by conservation officers. Each license specifies the waters on ( which it is to be used, and is obtained from the officer of the county in which the water to be fished is located. Spearers are permitted to use artificial lights. Cisco netting, which is localized in a few southwestern counties, does not begin until November 15. Michigan hunters looking about for cold storage lockers in which to keep some of the game they hope to kill this season are reporting freezing facilities already jammed with food and waiting lists on the books of some locker establishments. The conservation department, which administers the recently liberalized game storage law, looks for a revival of cold-packing and other methods of canning among" hunters who want to use their game throughout the winter and did not have a freezer locker rented when talk of meat rationing began. Permits are needed for canning also. The new game storage law allows keeping of game under permit for six months beyond the time regularly allowed for keeping it without a permit—which is: 30 days after the close of the season for small game and 60 days after the close of the season for deer and bear. Whatever the Michigan hunter's luck this year, the 1942 hunting season—the first of the war—will be a season to remember. The hunter's travel must be carefully planned to consume the least gas and use the least rubber possible, and when he .succeeds in breaking away from top-speed war work for a few days' relaxation, he will proceed to his destination at the novel speed of 35 miles ah hour. Every time he fires his. gun he will pock up the ejected shell, to save the brass. Though he pursues his game on remote wijld lands, he still will keep an eye open for old scrap iron to be collected or reported. If he kills a duck or goose he is requested to have the feathers, to build a reserve against 'the growing scarcity of commercial eiderdown. If he kills a deer he is asked to save the hide for leather. The meanest of small game animals can be made to yield a pound or so of fat for explosives manufacture. And all the meat for the table the hunter can bring home will help relieve a fresh meat scarcity. An eaf-tagged black and white tomcat answering to the name "Kitty" at Rose Lake wildlife experiment station is known to have accounted for at least 14 young cottontails during two months this summer, and station flel'd men are wondering whether he is an ordinary alley-run cat or a hunter of exceptional ability. "Kitty" was neither punished for the killings nor caged up to keep him from doing more harm. Instead, he was kept under the closest possible observation so that game men might measure rather than guess at the startling toll of wildlife taken every summer by tens of thousands of house •cats thoughtlessly abandoned or allowed to roam. In spite of the "take" by cats and other native predators, prospects for rabbit hunting at the Rose Lake station appear to be the best in years, game men say. James Gleason and Phil Silvers, who handle the comedy end of 'Tootlight Serenade," the new 20th Century-Fox musical coming to the Ironwood Theatre Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are fast emerging as one of the most amusing teams in Hollywood. They were both featured in "My Gal Sal," and in "Footlight Serenade" they work in really close harmony. Gleason appears as a worried theatrical producer, while Silvers is at home in the role of his crony and star comedian, who is the cause of most of Jimmy's imagined blues. They make a grand team for the simple reason that Gleason is .the practitioner of the "slow burn" and must be complemented by someone to "touch the fire" to him. And who could do that better than Phil? He doesn't see well, hear well or do anything well, except 'talk—and that at all times. As a result, he keeps Gleason's "burn" working overtime in "Footlight Serenade," which 'at the same time he doesn't bother, to hide his "fire" under a bushel basket. . Betty Grable, John Payne and Victor Mature are starred in the rollicking musical, which boasts' a sterling cast of favorites, including curvaceous Jane Wyman, the aforementioned Gleason and Silvers, and the glamorous Cobina Wright, Jr. The film was produced by William LeBaron, directed by Gregory Ratoff and written by Robert Ellis, Helen Logan ,and Lynn Starling from a story by Fidel LaBar- bar and Kenneth Earl. Music is by Leo Robin and Ralph Rainger, •while Hermes Pan .staged the dances, whi^h (feature the able talents of curvaceous Betty. RADIO on the RANGE By Ray D. O'Dial. By Leno Colla The stubborn Hurley Midgets came from behind late in the fourth quarter to whip the Red Devils, 12 to 7, Saturday after- moon on the Hurley field. A pass from Mosselle to Thomas set up the stage for the touchdown that decided the game. Mosselle then out-raced a host of Red Devils around left end for the winning tally. Ironwood scored in the third quarter on a pass from Johnson to Pollari. The elusive Pollari behind some fine blocking raced 80 yards. Hudacek made the extra point good. Hurley had previously scored on a pass from Mosselle to Thomas in the second quarter. Ironwood blocked the try for the extra point. Although the victors drove up and down the field for 13 first downs against seven for the Red Devils, the game was hard fought througghout. The penalties were few—two offsides on Hurley and one offside and a clipping penalty on Ironwood. The Midgets will be host to the Bessemer Speed Boys Saturday and as was the case last year will be battling in a game that may decide the district championship. Both Bessemer and Hurley are undefeated in conference play. Hurley has defeated Ashland, Ironwood and Wakefield. Bessemer has defeated Ironwood and Wakefield. "What Can I do" just about sums up what Americans everywhere felt after their' anger at the infamous Jap attack at Pearl Harbor was supplanted by cold, hard reasoning. The creators of "Double or Nothing", the famous quiz show heard over WJMS every Friday evening at 8:30, felt that now that we were at war it was not enough for this program to entertain millions of radio listeners. They decided it was their added duty to \itilize their contact with millions of Americans for the war effort. Out of this decision grew the weekly salutes to the various war effort organizations. So enthusiastic has been public acceptance of (this idea that their loyalty has made it possible for "Double or Nothing" to be brought to countless new millions through the use of Mutual's full network of 203 stations, the largest single hookup in the world. To it's creators, this means increased opportunities to put this fun show to work for Victory. "Double or Nothing" brings you Walter Compton, his quiz contestants, tenor Frank Forest, Nat Brusiloff's Orchestra, and guest stars. CO-STAR WITH TREMAYNE IN "FIRST NIGHTER" The "most married" actress in radio has tumbled to Cupid in real life. Barbara Luddy who, as co-star with Les Tremayne on Mutual's "First Nighter" has been "married" more times than any other actress, became the bride of R. Ned LeFevre, announcer-actor. The Little Theatre Off Times Square, heard over WJMS and Mutual's coast'to coast network every Sunday, 5 to 5:30 p. m. CW1, featrues Barbara Luddy and Les Tremayne for the 6th consecutive year. Miss Luddy's wedding took place on September 18th at the Winnetka, Illinois, home of Mr. and Mrs. L. T.
