Bob received this check after he turned in the feet from 120 crows. Birkholx has received more than ?1G from crow hunting this winter. : Sometimes It's Plain Murder, But Birkholz Gets His Crows By RON PECH If you have noticed fewer crows around the countryside lately,'it could be that Bob Birkholz has been hunting again. Bob, a Mason City High School junior, has shot more than 160 crows this winter. He docs most of his hunting from* -4 to 6:30 p. m. "Crows usually have certain fly ways ami roosting places," Bob explained, "biit if they are disturbed or shot at too often, they will usually roost someplace else. Jf a big flock roosts in a grove just at dark, it is pure murder." "Crow hunting is not very profitable," he pointed out, "although once I made 70 cents in one shot." (There is a 10-cent bounty for a pair of crow legs.) BOB does his hunting with a semiautomatic 12-gauge shotgun and occasionally uses an owl decoy or a crow call. Bob uses his own imitation of crow cawing, too. Since Bob loves the out-of-doors, he hunts almost every kind of game. "I like coon hunting most of. all SHIPLEY PRINTING CO. FOR. QUALITY P R / N T / N G isa . . . ; FIRST ST. N. E. Tom Kruinbholz -- · George E. C.iiertlii though," Bob added, "but next year I am looking forward to tuinting deer if we have another deer season." B I R K H O L Z and his hunting companions bagged 33 coons and seven fox this year. Next year, however, they may get more be- :ause Bob is raising a coon dog. Asked if he likes duck hunting, he declared, "It's all right if I lon't get too wet, but last fall I ell through some ice into waist- leep water and mud when I tried o retrieve a chick that had gone lown. I never did get the cluck!" Hi-Tri Skating Party Set for March 8 Get out your roller skates and come to the Skateway Roller Rink at the Armory March 8.

FEDERAL The Editor Driving Unit Compulsory Next Year It has been found by insurance companies that teenagers who had received driver t r a i n i n g in school have about 50 per cent fewer accidents than others. Because of this, and other reasons, our school board has decided to make driver education a required course next year. A L R E A D Y about 80 per cent of the high school- students take driver education. Making the course required will add very few students to the present program. The two teachers Who arc already teaching driver ·· training could take care of all the students. At the present time any student enrolled in the public schools and 16 years old is eligible for the driver trahting course. The three main objectives of driver training are: 1.' To provide a basic background for beginning drivers to meet the increasing hazards of modern transportation. 2. To afford beginning drivers the opportunity to gain good driving habits and proved methods of driving maneuvers to attain a full life without following the "trial and error" path. 3. To endow these students with better attitudes t o w a r d other drivers and pedestrians, thus enabling the students to better themselves not only in the field of driving but also in the field of life. Our driver training program consists of a half hour of classroom instruction five days a week for three Weeks and an ! hour of driving and observing each day for three weeks. STUDENTS who already have received licenses without the help of driver education will be required to take the classroom study and probably only one or two hours of actual driving, according to tentative plans. In requiring driver training our school board is foreseeing the future and giving the students every opportunity to better themselves. Hi-Y Club Members to Hear Dr. Wicks Dr. V. E. Wicks, Mason City chiropodist, will speak Monday noon at the Hi-Y meeting at the YMCA. He will talk on his profession. A movie pertaining to the subject also will be shown.
