The Buekv Report By JOELM. VANCE Information Specialist Missouri Department of Conservation JEFFERSON CITY - The Missouri Conservation Department today issued a special Bucky report to the folk of Marble Hill, Mo. "Bucky is all right. He is happy in his new home and already has made many fine friends. He is getting only the best of food and care and sends his love. He says he misses you all.” Bucky is a deer not quite a year old who was found south of Marble Hill with a broken leg after he had been run over by a mower. Mr. and Mrs. Tom Runnels took the fawn into their home and arranged to have the broken leg set. Today, save for a scar on his right rear leg, Bucky runs and plays just like all the deer. As Bucky grew, he became more a pet of the Marble Hill community rather than a one-family deer. But Bollinger County conservation agent Tom Wilder began to worry that when Bucky grew antlers, he might puncture some of the citizenry since he already playfully butted people. Bucky’s friends regretfully agreed that Bucky must go, so it was decided he would, so to speak, be sent to camp -- more specifically, the Charles W. Green Wildlife Area near Ashland. It was a sad day in late March I «'Hen they can»' for Bucky who didn’t resist as he was crated. There were moist eyes and tremulous “goodbyes” to Bucky who bade a silent farewell to Marble Hill. It was rumored a single tear trickled down his hairy cheek. Bucky is one of three tame deer at the Green area. His two tractable friends are George, a bigger buck who is shedding his winter coat and looks like the moths have been at him, and Old 27, a gentle doe with the delicate grace of a china doll. Green area. He will be part of an experiment on deer teeth which won’t take much of his time and will require only that he say “Aaaaaahhh!” once in a while. Gary Houf, a senior at the University and a student in wildlife management, works on he Green area and helps biologists with their experiments. “Bucky is about the nicest deer we have,” he said.

Heames, Governor of Missouri, esignated Friday, May 30, as Golf Day and urged all golfers in his State to participate in this worthwhile venture by playing a round of golf on National Golf Day. Governor Heames’ proclamation was forwarded to Leo Fraser, President of The Professional Golfers’ Association of America, which is sponsoring National Golf Day for the 18th consecutive year. “Let me extend my appreciation to Governor Heames on behalf of the PGA and all the organizations who have benefited in the past, for his thoughtfulness in recognizing National Golf Day in the State of Missouri,” Fraser said. “In this, the 53rd year of its existence, the PGA plans to make the 18th annual National Golf Day the greatest and most beneficial in its history.” The Governor pointed out that National Golf Day has realized more than $1.3 million since 1952 for worthy projects and charities. Proceeds go to Caddie Scholarship Funds, golf programs for amputees, golf at veterans’ hospitals and armed forces installations, turf research and education, the PGA Benevolent, Relief and * Educational Funds and other deserving projects.

Officials at the headquarters of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes announced here today that executive director James Jeffrey has been invited to lead seminars and workshops at the significant national gathering. The Congress will be held September 8-13 in Minneapolis, Minn. Over 8,000 ministers, laymen, evangelists, seminary students and others in Christian work will take part. Dr. Billy Graham is the honorary chairman of the Congress. Senator Mark Hatfield (R. Ore.) will be one of the featured speakers. Jeffrey, former standout Baylor football player, will present the thrust and scope of FCA at the Congress. He participated in the World Congress on Evangelism in Berlin in 1966 with other active FCA participants, including former UCLA All-American gridder Donn Moomaw, now a Presbyterian minister in California, and Loren Young, FCA’s southeast regional director in Atlanta, Ga. Daniel Ball, A native of Kirksville, has been assigned to the St. Charles - St. Louis city area as an education advisor by the Missouri Department of Conservation. Ball has a bachelor’s degree in ducation from Northeast Missouri State at Kirksville and a master’s m education from Duke University. Education advisors work with schools in methods and technics of teaching conservation. This is the time of the year when children and baby wild animals seem to come together like little girls and dolls. But game experts for the Missouri Department of Conservation advise tht despite the cuddly, helpless appearance of the baby animal, resist the temptation to pick it up and take it home. In the first place, the baby almost certainly isn’t abandoned. Mothr rabbit or raccoon is nearby, watching the whole thing with apprehension. Secondly, a wild animal is a wild animal. Virtually all wild animal babies grow up with a complete set of wild instincts and are frustrated if kept in captivity. Such a n i a ms 1 as raccoons, hile extremely interesting to watch, can be savage if thwarted and could remove part of a child’s anatomy with their sharp teeth. Best bet on finding wild animals is to tiptoe quietly away. Thomas Hill Lake is 140,000 northern pike richer than it was earlier this spring.

Locker struck out Willie Horton, but Northrup crashed i two-run homer off the upper deck facade in right, sending the Tigers and left-hander Mickey l,olich past the Sox, who had won four straight from East Division clubs. Oakland slipped past the Bed Sox on Rick Monday’s tie-breaking bloop single in the eighth, extending its winning streak to five games and snapping Boston’s victory string at eight. Carl Yaftrscmiki’s two-run homer gave the Bed Sox a 4-3 lead in the top of the eighth, but doubles by Keggie Jackson and Danny Cater tied it in the bottom half before Monday Gerry McNertney poled a three run homer off Mel Stottlemyre in the fourth inning, erasing a 2-0 New York lead built on Robby Mureer’s 10th homer, and the Pilots went on to nail their fifth straight victory. The Yankees have lost six in i row and 13 of their last 14 games, Paul Casa nova’s run-scoring single in the 10th broke a 1-1 tie at Anaheim and snapped the Senators’ losing streak at six games. Mike Epstein homered for Washington in the first inning and Bubba Morton’s first homer in two years pulled the Angels even in the seventh. Pony Horton clubbed two homers and rove in four runs, keying a 16-hit Cleveland attack that gave the Indians their fifth victory in 36 games. Jack Hernandez hit a three-run homer for the Royals.
