More Available For Shooters Later It's a little early to be thinking seriously flbout pheasant huntirig, but according to varied reports ffdm around the countryside', the delicious tasting birds will be plentiful when the season rolls around in three months. Of: course, to the casual pb- "crver who does all his spotting from a car, the increase in the population of pheasants might not be npticeqble, but farmers and conservation^ men in ^he area figure there are a lot rdore .than at this time last year. ; ; : Weather and cover are both important to the amoun't of shbbt- ing hunters get each fall. "According to officials, the winter wasn't, too harsh last year, and with favorable conditions prevailing throughout the present year, multiplication of the birds- has been on the increase. First of all, more lived to have young, and secondly, with a heavy undergrowth for protection and plenty of feed available, the families have grown bigger. A larger percentage have survived to get shot at. Just north of us, in Minnesota, about 100,000 6-week old birds have been added to'the former population by game officials and clubs during the year. This heavy stocking plan will undoubtedly also trickle over into this area, as many of them change location looking for the right place to live. It looks like it would be a good time to clean the old gun right now. Achievement Day Held, St. Joe Achievement Day of the Riverdale Rustlers Unit I 4-H.

ASK FOR Lindhorst Warns Drivers Of Bad Intersections , Words of wisdom and caution came from the office of Sheriff Halph <Lindh6rst Monday morning. "It is important that all drivers use utmost caution at road intersections where visibility is limited by tall corn from now until the corn harvest is completed", said Ralph. "The toll of lives lost on our roads every year is always added to by accidents on blind intersections." Normally speaking,'the motorist most easily trapped at blind intersections is the one who simply doesn't seem to care that he can't sec the incoming roads. He drives headlong into the intersection just at the time when another vehicle gets there from another direction. One strange thing about accidents of this variety is the fact most persons involved in them live within two or three miles of the scene. These persons know the visibility is poor, but became forgetful or ignore the threat. According to Lindhorst, "Some farmers have helped tremendously by cutting corn in the intersections just above the cars, and back from the corner for about 100 feet." more, surgery.
