LANSING.—Michigan's annual game crop has a butcher shop value as meat ol' almost three million dollars as computed by the game division of the department of conservation. Though deer at an average of 110 pounds for the 1938 kill of more than 44,800 bucks is the only Michigan big game animal used generally for food, its contribution of 4,928,000 pounds to the 1938 grand total of 13,947,475 pounds for all species is exceeded by that of hares and rabbits. About 2,500,000 cottontails and 500,000 snowshoc hares taken in 1938, if averaged at two pounds, had a total weight of G,000,000 pounds. The 1938 take of gamo birds with numbers, species, average and total weights, are: 921,000 pheasants, average weight two and one-half pounds, total weight 2,302,500 pounds; 316,000 partridge, one pound, 316,000 pounds; 10,000 sharp-tails and 27,000 prairie chickens, one and three-quarters pounds, 46,250 pounds; 200,000 ducks, one and one-half pounds, 300,000 pounds: 4,700 geese, eight pounds, 37.600 pounds; 18,000 shore birds, three J ounces, 3,375 pounds; 55,000 woodcock, four ounces, 13,750. Total weight of the above game, 13,947,475 pounds, which does not include all edible game legally shot, is nearly 7,000 tons. Au an average price of 20 cents a pound/ this would have a value of $2,789,495. All estimates ane believed conservative. Much of the game killed is a product of southern Michigan farmlands, this being particularly true of cottontails and pheasants. Hunters in tho current season arc expected to liar- ' vest as good, or perhaps a better, galne crop than that taken in 1938. Hunting in the north has benn reported spotty this year, better in some places and poorer in others where He pond f.rowth has grown so thick MS to make hunting and name life dime-nil.

Canada Bill was different from most gamblers who plied the Mississippi. Instead of the costly Paris-made boots, the $45 hats, | and the flowing black ties affect- ! ed by the gentlemen gamblers, i Bill posed as a yokel. He formed ! the habit of sitting in bars, | twisting his hair into little ringlets, like an idiot and occasion- ! ally flashing bankrolls, which | made him appear an easy mark i to those who saw him.

Loom is Street By GEORGE TUCKER NEW YORK -They tell me the old shell game and three-card Kunnie have staged a tremen- | dou.s return to popularity in the I Harlem dives. Three card Fan- i nie is a shell game variation in i which two aces and a queen are ii.seti; The man shfiws you The cards, shuffles them, then places them lace clown on the board and be-Us you you can't "pick up the lady." The sucker gets a better break lor his money on this one, as it is difficult to palm cards when only three are showing. But you can stand at the shell game counter and watch play for hours without seeing anyone but the stooges win. Props for the shell fame consist of three walnut shells and a little green pea. The shark places the pellet on the table and by deft maneuvering scrambles the shells so that the victim doesn't know just where the pellet Is. He bets you two to one you can't guess which •shell covers the pea. A good guess is that it is under none of the shells, but between the operator's fingers. However, if you make this charge, you should be ready to defend yourself. # * # The shell game is as old as gambling itself, originating probably with the Chinese, who invented card-playing and most other forms of gambling. Records of it go back to the middle ages, it was a favorite pastime of slicksters during the Restoration period In England, and in this country steamboat gamblers employed it successfully on Mississippi ijiver boats before the Civil war. Sometimes you Jse& Nfcgroes, who are adept at sleight of hand, in the subway stations practicing the shell game. No silver Is ever used. Only folding money fits into their scheme. The logic behind this is clear If a cop comes, it is easy to flee with folding money grasped firmly in your hand. But if you use silver, it Is awkward to handle. You are likely to sprinkle the sidewalk with nickels, dimes, and quarters. * * # In Herbert Asbury's "The French Quarter" Is the astonishing tale of Canada Bill, a sure thing gambler who won and. lost fortunes and was so lucky that other gamblers were loath to bet with him. Eventually he died, without a cent to his name, and was buried by the mayor of Reading, Pennsylvania. As the cof- • fin was lowered into the grave, one of his pals, who was standing by, turned to another of Canada Bill's old companions. 'Bet you a a thousand dollars to five hundred that Canada Bill Custer week-end guests at the Dewey Brandenberg home were Mr. iirandcnberg's sister, Mrs. A.

What we mean is, how'd you like to feel like you used to think a big shot • —w«s#--'-/<te£,"~erHising—-along in his big brawny Buick, envy of every youngster in town? Fact is, a big brawny Buick — this year's beatify of a Buick—is within your reach right now, if you just put your mind to it. A husky headlong 107-horse- powered giant valve-in-head straight-eight can be yours to command—you can roll around town in the staunch and steady carriage that's sure big, beautiful and a bearcat in action when its boss gives the word! Yes, you can ride in the gentle lap of Foam lex-cushioned luxury — shift gears with a flip of your finger, take bumps without notice in BuiCoil Springing's "full float" comfort, even signal your turns by a touch on a lever that shuts itself off when you're through with it. And what do you pay for all this— budget-bursting prices? Ix-nay! On the contrary, you can buy a Buick for less than some sixes! And you'll find when you look into what's included in these prices that they cover many an item that you will be asked to pay extra for elsewhere. All it takes, really, is the imagination to step up to the car you've really wanted — and once you've made that step, there's no real problem, for this Buick retains its extra first cost in the extra trade-in value it has when you come to buy again. So lift your sights. Quit grading yourself down. This year, go after the car you really want — which means talking delivered prices and trade-in terms with your nearest Buick dealer.
