The Wlllman brothers are now planning: a pack trip to hunt elk in Idaho. They will hunt near Challts for 10 days starting Nov. 1. And >mi other hunters whose names were drawn for the Refuge hunts had better hope the whooping cranes do not come back to the Aransas Refuge early. If the birds do return early, the special deer hunts will close automatically, says Refuge officials. The earliest the cranes returned to their wintering ground was around Oct. 4, but the average is around Oct. 15. You hunters might add to your prayers, "Please don't let the whooping cranes come back early this year." No closed squirrel season There has been a number of phone calls during the past week or so from persons asking about squirrel season in this county. FIGURE Thorp Is now no closed season on squirrel hunting. This(Mines straight from the mouths of two local game wardens, .1. K. MUldleton and Mark A. Davis.

Before the change, It was legal to hunt squirrels only during May, June, July, October, November and December. Davis warns hunters that it'Is illegaltoshoot from a public road. Bull red is caught twice Bessie Patterson wrote In about an unfortunate Friday the 13th fishing trip she and her husband Willy witnessed while they fished from the bank of Bastrop Bayou. Mr. and Mrs. O. L. Atkinson of Danbury were up early that morning and were fishing from a boat near the bank. Atkinson hung a large bull redfish. After a battle, the fish broke Atkinson's 12 pound test line and got away with the cork and quite a bit of the line. Atkinson borrowed his wife's rod and reel ajid managed to hook into his lost line after a few casts. Then the battle was on again. The red broke water a few times and Atkinson could see that Its tail was about six Inches wide, said Bessie. Then his rod bent almost double and the fish broke loose again with the bobbing cork still attached. ' Atkinson started up his boat motor to catch up^vith the fish which was headed for deep water. But the boat would go In only one directton r ln reverse. So there they were, circling in reverse and getting nowhere, said Bessie. They forgot the fish that got away and concentrated on their motor trouble. They did not realize until later that it was Friday the 13th, Bessie reported. u Willy drove Atkinson to get his car and boat trailer to load PAGE 8. Section 1, Freeport. Texas, Sunday. Sept. 22.

Williams happy with switch BEAUMONT - George Williams admits he was "not too keen" about an experiment at Lamar Tech's training camp In the spring of 1907. "I had been a split end since the eighth grade," said Williams, was sort of a letdown when Coach (Vernon) Glass said he wanted me to play defense. Now, I wouldn't move for the world." . Glass and Cardinal secondary coach Fred Jkcobare just as happy with results of the switch. "He has a fine power of concentration," Glass says of the 185-pound ballhawk who came here from Freeport as a skinny receiver. "George has also developed intoasolld Recreation center sessions announced LAKE JACKSON - The Lake Jackson Recreation center handball courts, exercise rooms and swimming pool will center swimming pool does not have a lifeguard so no one Is allowed to enter the pool alone.

The good-natured youngster, a junior physical education major, was a 10-game starter last year. Although jolted by the 45-7 season opening loss to West Texas State, Williams isn't about to buy any talk of a "long season" for Big Red. "Oh definitely, we're going to be all right,"saidWilliams as the Cardinals prep for their home debut Saturday against nigged McNeese. "That was the worst licking I've taken In eight years of football, but brooding about It sure Isn't go- Ing to help." Williams stands a shade over G-l and possesses D.8 speed. The defensive left halfback, also a big contributor to . Lamar Tech's track program, ' was a three-sport lotterman at Lanier High School In Freeport. When Lanier was merged into Ilra/.osport, Williams concentrated on football and baseball. It was quite a year for the Exporters — and the sun of Mr. and Mrs. George W. Williams. Sr. The Shlp|>ers reached the Class AAAA semi-finals In 19G5 as Williams cavorted at split end. The following sprint:, he helped Brazosport capture the state baseball title as a southpaw pitcher. Williams' record was 5-1. George's dad, and his elder son, Carl, who Is now stationed In Vietnam, had also been pitchers of semi-pro renown. They talked up baseball to George, but he remained firm with a decision to pursue the contact sport. Williams mulled tAi-r his future late Into tho summer, and was just about ri-ad> ti> take off for a trywit at Texas Southern when Glass made his pitch. "Coach Class called me om- Sunday night," said Williams. "1 was In lleaumont the next day and watched them work. 1 was on the field In shorts Tuesday, and put on the |>ad,s the next two days.
