Change AIL Dates Tlr.-. season for pika anil pickerel has been changed, and instead fishing thorn over the annual' holiday the season will open June 1st, a month before the bass season. The changes have brought forth sor-.ic protest from, the fishermen thrououl thc stale who consider the month ol July and August not very favorable from a fisherman's viewpoint. June and September have, been considered thc ideal months for catching bass. Gives Opinion One authority on the question has given his opinion as follows: ''Opening day for bass was pushed back form May 2U to July 1 because the conservation commission believed ihat their hatching program could not maintain Ihe bass supply to its present standard.

The cere- mony was held last year in LaCrosse and has been held in other cities in Ihe district'previous! to that. Eat Buttons The affair which the Indians will hold here is called the Mescal Feast and gels its name from a Mescal But- ton which the Indians eat' during; the L'east. The buttons grow on the Mexi- can border and are said :to jpc veiy slrong, and after the pel-, son who eals it is'.said to .be affected similarly to the effects a drug will produce. The consumer is said to have' visions which are very pleasant to the mind after eating the buttons.
