They turned up In the orchards and began feeding on young apple trees. •• Men In Jeep Men In Jeeps, on horseback and on foot tried to drive back the mau- radlng animals, but It was a cosily Process because cold and hungry (Ik have little fear of man. Ranchers started shooting the elk to defend their property Sportsmen, angered at the slaughter threatened to shoot a cow for every elk, and the ivar was on. Brady, who likes the ranchers lo stay In business so he can dust their orchards, figured he'd better come to the rescue. He remembered he had once flown low over some elk on the Cascades just to watch them, and discovered he could herd them In any direction he pleased with his flying cayuse. Officials Cynical State game officials were somewhat cynical, but Brady kept talk- ng and they finally agreed to go long for the ride. ' From his flying horse. Bradv •potted 25 elk nibbling in an orchard. He buzzed them, and they ran for a corner. Then he flew behind them, driving them out of the orchard, down a steep hill, np a trial and back to their refuge, seven miles away. It took an hour and 28 minutes, and Brady never lost an elk. Four days later—and $50 an hour SEE HOW THEY RUN! He.dir, r east at 30 mile. a. hour, th«. , )k hav. j» si been 'chased out apple orchards in Yakima Valley, Wash. For what makes (hem run, look at photo below. —he had driven all the elk back where they belonged, and from then on it was just, a case of rounding up the strays. The war was over. Roundup Called Last spring, the game department called on the flying cowboy to round up some troublesome antelope £0 they could be moved to another area. It took him about an hour and a half of maneuvering over miles of sagebrush country before he found out the antelope have to be driven much faster than elk. Then he rounded up 14 in one fell swoop herding them into the corral so fast* they almost went out! the other side. This Winter, when the, snow on the mountains gets deep, Brady will be back in the saddle again. The ranchers won't lose their apple trees, the sportsmen won't aim at cows, and the elk will meekly go home, like the happy ending of a western Saturday matinee. of Israel Gets Manuscripts To Publish TEI.
