He just de- cided the night before that he'd out and try his luck around mine potholes and small lakes not 'MI from home. His preparations consisted in checking the gas tank, affixing a duck stamp to his license and throwing his gun and some ihells in the back seat. He reached the first of th- pot- holes about the time his sunrise told him shooting was legal, [t was mid-week, and there were 10 other hunters in the immediate vicinity of his first stopping rhere weren't any ducks, either, in the pothole or in the air.

Sloshi- ng along toward the brink of the plough, Jim found the water higher nan it had been in previous years ow grasslands were inundated, nd the heavy growth of vegeta- that had marked the rim of pen water in previous seasons was to the old shore line. He made con- siderable noise despite his carefully slow progress, and that water was cold! Again a shtheiing of wings, and from all along the out-of-range fringe of reeds again skittered and flew half a hundred ducks. Desper- ate now, Jim took aim at the near- est of a close-in trio and let fly. One dropped, apparently hit on a wingtip by a No. 6 shot. Anyway, it couldn't swim, but it could fly, and proceeded to do Three more shots only speeded the bird along. Jim decided there was little! chance of any more shooting that morn- ing, so he hied himself back to his car, and homeward.

This pear, as in 1938, neither team has lost a game and leader- ship of the Western .division is at i stake. The big differences however, are that this year's game is scheduled for Whiting High field, long known as the region's finest, and the winner will become a tavonte to take the championship. Back m 1938, Washington spent itself in a 13-0 victory over favored Whiting and was battered later in the same week by Emerson's Kuzma, Johnson and company who went on to win division (ind con- ference titles. Emerson can haidly duplicate this year because the Norse have been brushed aside, 20-10, by Wash- ington and would have to capi- tiihze on a long sequence of strange happenings to win the 1942 crown.

Repetition His subsequent experience was repetition of the first, except] .hat upon his return to his car a rather irate farmer wanted to mow what he meant by parking n the yard without asking per- mission to hunt on the place. Rub- ier shortages and car restrictions wing what they are, Jim had left lis auto in the yard rather than having the machine stolen, hough there hadn't been anyone in light when he anived to grant the privilege. The farmer was placated lasily enough, but his comment hat he hadn't seen a wild duck lor I month wasn't encouraging. Jim proceeded to a large, shal- ow lake some miles to the south, where he'd bagged some green- leads one lucky day a couple of reasons back. However, he recalled regretfully, he'd had a boat along :hen. By the time he reached his iestination the sun had broken through its gray shroud and was beaming benignly on a sizable ex- panse of open water from which 111 cover he.d been drowned out.

Silence Broken Then the silence and placid adequate preparations didn't know exactly where he was going or what he'd do when he arrived. He had no boat, and no dog to retrieve any ducks he might shoot over open water. He reached the scene of action too late m the day and he hadn't contacted the farmers in the vicinity before going on their premises. He hadn't taken the Clark and a highly keyed, if im- potent, Hammond High team have made the Senators slight favorites m the big game Friday nigh' in Whiting.

The Iowa Hawkeyes" prospects against Indiana received a jolt today with the report that End Bill Burkftt, one of the three regulara injured in the Illinois game, may not be ready Satur- day. The other two injured regulars, Bill Parker, end, and Bruno Niedziels, tackle, am ex- pected to get back into action. The Hawkeyes will stress study on their pass defense, which lapsed against Illinois.

The six-foot, JSO- pound gridder from Hempntead, N. V., had to click in the clutch before the Irish began to roll in the fashion expected of them in pre- season ratings. Notre Dame was tied by Wiscon- sin and beaten by Georgia Tech in its first two starts. Then Wright was given the signal-calling duties and the field direction. He deliv- ered in a big way as the Irish downed Stanford 27 to 0 and trampled the previously unbeaten Iowa Naval Cadets 28 to 0. Sat- irday Wright attempts to continue his magic touch as Notre Dame meets Illinois in the out- standing game. As a sophomore Wright played fullback, but didn't sec enough service to win a letter. As a junior he was switched to quarterback and split the assignment with Bob Hargrave as Notre Dame went through its arduous nine gome schedule unbeaten. Piloting a team through a season unmarred by defeat was proof of Wright's tactical talents, but it didn't win him permanency of position. Head Coach Frank Leahy saw greater need for Harry else- where and this season he was switched to 0Tiard. Although the position was strange to him Wright was a cap- able performer in the Irish's first two starts, but the team didn't click. Then he was given the added burden of calling signals m an effort to restore the efficiency of Notre Dame's offense. The records of the last two games speak for themselves as to Harry's ability to call the proper play at the proper time. Wright is a gambler on the foot- ball field.
