Trapping Report The past season was a disappointment for trappers, according to « report from .Tim Fitzgerald, chief enforcement officer of state game laws. Only about half, or 10.000, trapping licenses were bought In 1953 as compared to 1352. Many circumstances contributed to the less successful season. Several southern Illinois streams ran dry and ice hampered Imp selling during the later beaver season. State records reveal that 332 beavers were trapped and marketed during the season. Another discouraging factor for trappers was lower prices on furs. Beaver pells sold at $n and mink nt. $14, both of which were 51 less than In 1952. Raccoon pelts at $1 and weasel at 65 cents remained steady in price while muskrat, a mainstay in the trapping industry, fell from $1.10 to 90 cents. QnJet Mfltot Experiments with the new quiet outboard motor introduced this year reveal that fishermen can approach fishing sites with much less chances of disturbing fish and therefore score greater, according to a report from Wisconsin. A bass fisherman found the motor particularly adaptable to use on his boat while casting along a shoreline. City Wildlife Habitat More permanent cover is need«d to provide a safe nesting place for song birds, game birds and animals, stated a bulletin from Hie Illinois Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs. Although rural areas are best for planting future game habitat, city conservationists can plant some cover in their yards to help produce birds and rabbits. A briar patch or some mutlflora rose hedge will save the lives of much game In town as well as in the country. Because goats are blamed for damage to mountain tree plantations in Lebanon, a bill to curtail their numbers has been introduced, Beirut reports.

New 161-horsepower Mercury with ball-joint front wheel suspension gets top marks for performance, efficiency, economy and handling ease "HOT AS STRAIGHT TABASCO ON-THE-ROCKS" Tom McCahill MECHANIX ILLUSTRATED "The place where Mercury really sliines tin's year, aside IVmii its spml-nvcr-lhc-grouml performance, is in its handling and rond- abilily. It's a pnge . . . out of the Lincoln bonk. "The guy who buys n 7)4 Merc will be gelling a really new car, not a warmed-over old one. Sonic of Merc's competitors are . . . overdue for a change . . . the buyer of these competitors will be as out-of-date as an Indian- head penny—and when he goes to trade in, they'll talk to him in pennies." "161-HP PUSH, BUT DRINKS NO MORE GAS THAN BEFORE" Wilbur Show POPULAR SCIENCE MONTHLY Read these revealing quotes from Wilbur Shaw, .President of the Indianapolis Speedway. "Three years ago a Mercury engineer told us that his men would never be satisfied until they designed an engine that ate up a lot less of its own power than the ones then on the production line. Well, they've done it! "When I drove the car on the ... lesl track in Dearborn, Mich., and again on the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, I was struck by the smoothness of the power pick-up." "THIS CAR IS A KNOCKOUT! ... AND REAL EASY TO DRIVE" Walt Wbron-Don MocDonofd MOTOR TREND "You'll like the 1954 Mercury, particularly if you like power that'll make you sit back in your seat when you stomp the throttle. "If there is no other reason for the increase in horsepower (now 161) the added acceleration for passing is enough. "Lincoln-type ball-and-socket joints on Mercury's front wheels eliminate familiar kingpin, reduce much front end vibration." "EXCEPT FOR LINCOLN-THERE IS PROBABLY NOT A SINGLE PASSENGER CAR ENGINE THAT CAN COME UP TO ITS STANDARD FOR SHEER RUGGEDNESS" Griff Bergeson CARS "The intake manifold on the new Mercury is definitely one of 1954's engineering highlights. No other manufacturer of V-8 engines has produced such a logically correct version. "One of the best engineered power plants in the industry, regardless of price" It pays to own America's fastest growing car ^ mER[URY TOM HARRIS Pan'l mlM H>» bl» UUvisJpn bit.
