CSKS) Cutting of the December fortnight off the elk season to leave it Sep- tember 15 to November 30. was recommended after long consider- ation by the East Kootenay Rod and Gun Club zones jieeting held recently with Game Commissioner J. J. Cunningham of "Vancouver. This was recommendsd as a result of the heavy slaughter of elk dur- ing the past season, particularly late in the season when snow drove elk down to valley levels. Also was discon- tinuation of the doe season, started two vears ago -when farmers throughout the Kootenay and Columbia Valleys were being vic- timized by marauding herds of deer. Any changes in regulations con- cerning hunting of mountain sheep will be left to the discretion of the game commission. Lengthy discussion of the situ- ation concerning predatory animals resulted in a decision to ask the legislature to increase the bounty to S40 on cougars, chief destroyers of game animals, ilr. Cunningham, speaking on the subject, also recommended a continued bounty on wolves. He said he favored em- ployment of two salaried predatory animal hunters in East Kootenay. Crow's Jfest Pass delegates intro- duced a resolution that Elk Lake to Mosquito Creek should be closed to fishing ori the grounds that Alberta fishermen were fishing the British Columbia side; and that as the fishing ground was accessible only from ihe Aiberta side, it was useless to B.C. fishermen.

Playing a Mgh standard game of ball in the first quarter, the Y Aces whipped in 15 ooiats to the AUstars eight to take a substantial lead which Aiistars were unable to over- come during the rest of the game. The play -was fast and clean on both sides in the second quarter with Aces meeting stiff opposition. Aiistars showed some nice team- work when they held the bail from. Aces on several accounts outscoring them. 14-10 but still remained be- hind in the total score at the end of the quarter. FAST OPENING The AUstars opened up the sec- ond half of the game In the third period of play -Kith, some quick baskets, holding- the Aces at bay for a short of time. But Aces soon, came back hard and sure rushes to score a total of 10 points to the AUstars eight, still holding the lead with. a- score of 35-30. The last quarter of the game saw- both teams scoreless until the end- ing minutes of the game. AUstars appeared to have the game com- pletely wraotied up.
