Wild Life League Canoe BodylWith Organization Western Pennsylvania Association Meets and Prepares for Coming Year. usv Work? Pheasant-Egg Hatching LIFE GUARDS GET BUSY W By HARRY MAY. The annual meeting and election of officers of the Western Pennsylvania Canoe Association, held the past week In the Fort Pitt hotel, was the liveliest and most important since the inception of that organization five years ago this spring. The association was formed by a number of enthusiasts from several up-river canoe clubs for the purpose of I welding the clubs and unattached (canoeists into a narmonious body; to stimulate canoeing interests by promot- iina- race meets, "stunt" regattas cT-n narades and various social i tions. The association leased several tracts of land and sections of islands. which were used tor picnic ami purposes, while leagues of tennis .and baseball clubs were also formed. The association prospered and has lb associated clubs, and these, with unattached members, gave a membership of over 450. Iast season, however, interest seemed to lag, and this has been variously attributed to the miserable weather of the summer; the presence of so many fair guests, which proved a body blow to the athletic work of the rlvermen when ladles were to be entertained; then there was a certain amount of sectional jealousy between the upriver and downriver districts.

In addition to these meetings, two of the branches already existing in the county are holding meetings during the week. On Tuesday the Sharpsville branch will hold a meeting, and on Thursday there will be an .illustrated lecture and moving picture exhibition under the auspices of the Tarentum branch, at which the league collection of slides will be shown by James B.

A. was about to go into a decline, but at the recent meeting it was emphatically voted that such was not to be the case. Among the clubs officially repre sented were: Keystone, Laetus, Dixie, Tippy Canoe, Aztec, Ecalap, Synwlll, Algonquin, Pittauqua, Minnetonka and Aspinwall canoe clubs and Triangle and Xo-Kix-Go camps. A small financial 'balance was reported, together with several baseball club cash deposits to be forfeited to the association. The board of governors made no report. This board consists of a representative from each of the 16 clubs, together with the chief official board. After much discussion of important general topics the election was held, resulting in a new cabinet and the removal of the Wr. P. C. A. headquarters from Keystone club in Verona to Ecalap club in upper Oakmont. Ecalap club had previously announced that It intended to boom the association in the upper river section. Fred Richardson of Keystone club had been commodore and Jimmy MacKay secretary of the order for four years. Both distinguished themselves by ' their indefati gable work, but no other persons would assume their burdens. This year both declined re-election in hope of Instilling ne'w blood and ideas into the association. The result of the election was: Commodore Thomas A. W'ilson, Ecalap Canoe club; vice commodore, Fred Richardson, Keystone Canoe club; treasurer, W. J. Curley, Pittauqua' Canoe club; secretary, "Bull" Murdock, Minijetonka Canoe club. A unanimous vote of thanks for their services was extended to Mr. Richardson and Mr. MacKay. Changes in the present by-laws will be made at once.

All these meetings are open to the public and men. women and children are invited to attend. Among those scheduled for such exhibitions are Sharpsburg. Oakmont, Coraopolis and other points. Friday the first annual banquet of the Westmoreland County League will be held at Greensburg. It will be one of the biggest affairs ever pulled off in this state, and will be attended by men from all over "Western Pennsylvania. Game Commissioner John M. Phillips, Charles T. fZr-iTtir Smith Fiplrl Secretarv San- som and President R. T. Brown of the' league will be among the speakers, and there will be two splendid exhibitions of lantern slides and moving pictures of the ail-American amateur field trials. The past week has been a busy one in league organizations. In Allegheny county, the Corapolls branch held its annual election and selected a strong set of officers in President, C. H. Stevenson: vice president. P. X. Braun; secretary-treasurer, Frank X. Beck. Coraopolis expects to enroll a membership of 200 in the next 60 days. POTTER COUNTY BUSY. Potter county, one. of the best fish and game sections of the state, is in a flame of enthusiasm over the league movement. Three new branches have been organized in the county in the last 30 days urnier the able leadership of Judge A. S. Heck of the courts of Totter county, and with Aiuoimnv and other Western counties co-operating. Potter county promises to be made the greatest fish and game section in the state. The Wild Life League of Potter county was organized at a meeting in which seven branches were represented on March 22. with ithe following officers: President, R. Linn Em-merick.

While the "Winged Head'' lost two of its stars, Pryel and Johnston, the lineup will not be materially weakened as a real clever pair of substitutes have been landed to take their places. In the 115 pound class Chic Rogers of Home-wood will be given his first opportunity to show in a dual city contest. Rogers is well-known to fans at the P. A. A. aa he has fought a number of times at the clubhouse and after Wilbur Johnston 13 the best hantomweight of the district. Even though the champion Johnston has defeated the little Homewood scrapper several times, he never succeeded In doing it without a supreme effort. Rogers, like Johnston, has to his credit a decison over the national amateur champion, Matty Herbert of Xew York, whom he defeated this winter. The new 115 pounder is a good man and with a little more experience will develop into a real star Pryel's srecessor in the lightweight I division will be Johnny Farol, of Law- renceville. Farol is a real sturdy lad wdth lots of steam back of his wadops and although he has never had an opportunity to show what he could do, Commissioner Taylor expects him to come through the Philadelphia affair in great style. Ernest Valentine, the Rodfield coal miner, has entirely recovered from the inji'ry that kept him out of the I?troit lights and will look after things in the middleweight fracas. The heavyweight will be George Hook, who is one of the best amateurs in the country. Hook will probably be a fixture on the P. A. A. team in the future, as arrangements have been made with the citv to allow hirr. to fght for the "Winge-1 Head." The balance of the scraps will be in the hands of the club's veterans.

We would not feel so badly about this outrage had he not taken up all of the spare time of Frank Lefever recently, having this competent gunsmith almost remodel his old gun. Why he failed to avail himself of the opportunity to try it out is beyond us. the only solution being the sins of old age. It is to be hoped he will redeem himself in the near future. Mistakes ..often happen and we may have made one when we dubbed R. F. Luxoln "Abe." Since we have eeome more familiar with h:s tactics i" ha-5 recently been discovered he has a weakness for sweet things and bears no resemblance whatever to the rugged old patriarch. His real hobby is not for shotting. Xo: far from it. It is for fudse! He delights to don the dainty apron and wi'h his own white little hands concoct what he terms "divinity fudge." It is understood that his peculiar ten-tion in this line has endeared him in the hearts of 11. any of the lair sex !n the territory. We hope that he will never appear at- the tiaps with his gun-case covered with pink ribbon.

Godcharles. secretary An important phase was the presentation before the association, by Xils-A. Wahlberg, superintendent of the local branch of the United States "Volunteer Life Saving Corps, which he stated is a protection for every riverman and beneficial to water j sports at large. At the same time its I members must be recruited from among the more expert of the canoeists and ' campers. The -two organizations naturally ; will work hand in hand and a special com- mittee was appointed to co-operate with ; the life guards. The committee is Paul Friday of Pittauqua Club, C. P. O'Brien of Xo-Kix-Go and X. S. Kleine of Triangle. At the same time a mee-llng was held in Lawrenceville Roat Club, Forty-third ! street, attended by delegates from a half ' dozen of the farther camps near the i Springdale dam, for the purpose of or- J ganizing a branch of the life saving corps in that district. Thomas C. Carr is at the head of the movement and declares : the proposed branch will be conducted ! strictly as a division of the parent or- ; ganization. j In this field would be gathered, besides 1 Carr, the Dittmar brothers, who have made many sensational rescues, as well as j expert swimmers and a large flotilla of ' fast motot boats from the following camps: j Six Brothers. Hardin. One Each, Xo-Me. ' Pioneer. Ziggity, Mullins and Lawrence- 1 ville Boat Club. The meeting was ad dressed bv Mr. Heaton of Reck Sprin camp, a member of the life guards, who j . outlined the work of the corns. While i decisive action was not completed, it is j likely a branch will be organized in this ; section, although it is above the territory ; which the corps expected to patrol this j season. M0T0RB0ATMEN BUSY. The Lawrenceville Boat. Club looks forward to its busiest year. Plans for their flnhhouse are temporarily halted until the club can make arrangements with i the citv for a different site, the present j location having been spoiled by the construction of a city sewer which empties ! on the water front. Many of the club's j boats will be sold this spring and replaced 1 by new fast pleasure boats. Mr. Kensey, j a club member, is constructing for Mr. j Burke a mahogany-finished de luxe boat j ii nT fp(-t hv 5ii inches, with a i j horsepower Pier - e-Arrow engine.

Wherever you go, you'll find that those most particu- ' lar about the quality of whiskey they use, are the very ones who, on all occasions, are most likely to ask for tys "Old 81 Always the same rich, satisfying flavor.
