, Big bluegills were being taken last week from Silver Lake, Not, however, by us. ^ But now that we have a gtiaranteed formula things win be different No more blanks if district fish manager FrIU Paulin's bluegill menu li followed. It seems we were using arti­ ficials on two Silver Lake junkets last week. Working out of Van's on the west side of the lake, we ran enough hardware through the waters of that fertile Kenosha County lake to start a sporting goods shop. High, low, medium running, fast, slow and dead slow retrieve. Van eyed our fish-free boat the last time we returned to shore and then nodded to the couple who had beached their boat ahead of us with their bucket full of fat, sassy 'gliis. Later the district fish manager pointed out our error. Silver Lake 'gills are not hardware addicts. When they dine, they do so from items of their own choosing on the menu. Forthwith is passed on the menu and the manner of serving. Go upwind (in a boat, naturally) then drift across the deeper part of the lake in the central and easterly section of the lake. Impale a chunk of shrimp on your hook and follow it with a nightcrawier or its skinny cousin, the angleworm, also run through with the hook in the fashion of the cane pole angler. Trail this deep in the water— at the bottom if you will. When you hit brisk business at the other end of your line, drift through the school, then run back upwind and drift throuph again until ybu have the number you want. This is guaranteed. I don't know by whom, but It is. We shall devote our unwavering attention to it next time we work the lake. If it doesn't work we shall then sell our tackle and take up skin diving. • • • Ed Leek of the Silver Lake Sportsmen's organization tells of the unhappiest angler to come off Silver Lake in a long time. The lad hooked into a big bass and brought it nlongside the boat. He saw the tag fixed to Its tail and heard cash register bells ringing. The bass he had hooked was worth $30. It was one of numerous fish tagged by the local sportsmen's club and released in the lake as a fishing promotion. Our fisherman knew this and it must have made him all goosepimples, as he slipped up in trying to net the monster and it got loose and vanished. He probably never lost a more expensive fish. Fishing OB Browns Lake this season has been sporadic —so-so if a more common definition. A friend of ours, who owns a home on the lake but would pniler to remain unnamed, adlVMces a solution which ho thinks might restore BrowM.Lake fishing to its formor ytgor. Our friend would like to see the Conservat10)[i Department step In and poison out all the weed growth in the lake, then replant with some approved species. Also poison out and restock the lake with good game fish and panfish. This would eliminate the lake's current carp population which does no one any good and ruins much of the fishing. Also, he would like to see limits' imposed on boat horsepower in the lake. He points out that a view of the lake from the air when the boats are busiest on the water shows graphically wjiat some of the big-power units are doing to the lake. They leave a trail of roiled up, muddy water behind them in the sliailower regions of the lake and running through the heavy weed growth, leave the shorelines littered with decaying, chopped weeds. We have to agree with him that the problem at Browns Lake is perhaps as acute as that of any in the lakes in the Racine-Kenosha area. • • + While our waterfowl hunting fraternity eagerly awaits the setting of seasons by the Federal powers-that-be, it is of little comfort to them to note that Ducks Unlimited and the U. S. Fish & Wild Life Service arc again poles apart on their estimates of this fall's duck population. No Even the smallest boats can be rigged with cockpit lights as well as required navigation lights. This will allow the boatsman to start his weekend the night before.

When the big chiefs disagree, how can the little Indians know what the score is? While it is (o be admitted that counting ducks In the wild is a little less exact science than counting the fans at County Stadium, still these experts surveyed the same area and should be just a bit closer together in their estimates. A U. S. Bureau of Sport Fisheries director recently pointed out the need for more study on the effects of pesticides atul insecticides on fish and wild life. This brings to mind a subject heing discussed by more and more hunters — namely, the apparent scarcity of pheasants. While the fox gets the major blame for fewer pheasants in some quarters, a growing numlter of sportsmen arc wondering if the rock salt u.scd on highways in the winter may not be a bigger factor than the fox. They have seen pheasants along the rmui on not-too-cold winter days that seemed to move around as if in a trance or doped. They may have some disease, of course, but it seems unlikely . The problem would seem to merit serious study. In any event, coupled with the severe winter we had, the pheasant shortage has curtained this year's hunt to 19 days, compared with last year's 43-day season. And only one rooster a day may be killed the first three days of the hunt. It looks as if even more of the Wisconsin smooth -bore clan will get their pheasant shooting in the Dakotas this fall after all.

SOUTH ORANGE. N. J.— i/P} —Maria Bueno of Brazil, the Wimbledon tennis queen, today was under orders to rest "a few days" after collapsing [of physical exhaustion in the Eastern Grass Court cham- pion.ship. "My next tournament is the U. S. doubles, which starts a week from Monday in Boston," said Miss Bueno. "I'm sure I'll be okay by then." Miss Bueno suffered an attack of physical exhaustion after losing the first set, 6-4 to Belmar Gunderson, Cham bcrsburg, Pa., Friday in f . quarter-final match. Later, she was pronounced "all right" but Ask Increased Fund for Study of Pesticides WASHINGTON —(m— Mil lions instead of thousands of dollars were urged for studies of the effects of pesticides on fish and wildlife. Asst. Director Lansing A. Parker of the Bureau of Sport Fisheries, Department of Interior, told a House Fisheries and Wildlife subcommittee the problem is critical. The committee is consider- ng a bill to boost from $250,000 to $2,565,000 the amount authorized for such studies. Parker said the bureau favors the passage of the bill, but recommends going still farther. "The need for greatly expanded research effort in this direction is acute and requests for participation in co-operative investigations of such materials far exceed manpower and facilities." More Toxics Used The problem, he added, has grown out of the tremendous increase in use of numerous highly toxic pesticidal compounds developed after World War II. 'Preliminary findings from investigations now in progress," he said, "have revealed numerous examples of large los-ses of fishes, birds, and mammals in areas where many of these toxic materials are applied." For example, he said 109 dead songbirds were picked up on the University of Wisconsin campus within a few days after DDT spraying for Dutch elm disease control. In Florida, operations for the control of sand flies resulted in kills of 20 to 30"tons or about 1,175,000 individual fishes of 30 different species. Set Minnesota Pheasant Season ST. PAUL—(^)—Minnesota will have a 30-day statewide pheasant season this fall with limits at three cock birds per day, six in possession. Season dates are Oct. 24 through Nov. 22, with shooting hours on all days except the opening set at 10 a.m. to sunset. Hunting starts at noon the opening day. James W. Kimball, state game and fish director, said generally satisfactory nesting conditions promise a good supply of birds. A season on Hungarian partridge will parallel the pheasant season. Grouse seasons were announced earl ier. The sharp-tail season, Sept. 19-Oct. 18, has a bag limit of three and six, and ruffed grouse, Oct. 3 - Nov. 15, four and eight. Whenever you see photographs of the top professionals going through the downswing, you'll notice one thing about them all: every golfer seems to be sitting down as he gets the clubhead into motion in the downswing. This action gives a couple of important results. One is that both knees are comfortably bent—neither is locked, which would certainly throw the swinger off stride. The other is that it is a major factor in keeping the golfer balanced. Without balance, no golfer can hope to make solid contact with the ball. The sensation is that you feel that if a high kitchen stool were placedi behind you at this point, you would be able to sit down on it. I'm making a sand shot in today's illustration. It's no different than any other as far as "sitting down" is concerned. Note how my knees are comfortably bent, and how well I'm keeping my balance.
