Tomorrow Will Open the Sea son-Crop Appears to be a Good One Tomorrow Is September' 1st. Maybe the clucks know it. if thoy don't, tho cannonading which will rend the early hours tomorrow morn ing will soon convince them that thoy are legltlmata victims for slaughter. The. eagle-eyed hunters are busy today oiling up their fowling pieces, digging up the wherewithal to purchase shells, and looking for leaks In their waders. Buzz wagons are ho ing fed gas for an early morning start, and when tho unsuspecting ducks wake up in tho morning it will be to music the like of which they have never heard before. Those who have been out spying out the ground in advance tell stories about the number and size of the duck crop that would put the most prodigious fisherman to flight at the first broadside. Evidontly. to some embryonic hunters, ducks are as zop-pelins. Tomorrow they will look like flying ants. However that may be, there is no doubt that this has been a particularly favorable season for the breeding of ducks. There wua very little rain in the early breeding season and they have como through unmolested. The result is that tho early duck season will probably be the best in years. A few flocks of honkers have boon reported from time to time and within a couplo of weeks there should he plenty of them in the south. Tho wheat fields will again afford them a splendid feediug ground and those who make a dead set on tho black collared beauties are looking forward to sonic fine sport. Luckily chickens are protected this year. They too have had a splendid breeding season, and if they are loft strictly alone for a couple of years the country will be populated with prairie chicken as It has not been for years.

The fans will be sorry to see him go, but will wish him the best of luck In the world in his new'position. May he never make an error. An Intorosling letter has been received by the Edmonton Journal sporting editor from Sam Bagley, who formerly held clown centre field for the Borden Bearcats,,, but at present is hurling bombs at the common enemy. Herr Fritiz in France. His letter, in part, is as follows: "Tho weather here is grand, sunshine every day but its always chilly at night. 1 hate to think of the winter. We all had expected we would bo home this winter, until the Russians quit lighting. I only hope they start again soon." "Well, I saw Deacon White last Sunday and Monday. Ho is manager of the 3rd division baseball team and 1 am captain of the 2nd division team. Deacon's team heat us two games. Thoy have boon working together now for six weeks and our hunch had only been ^together one week. 1 am sure with another two weeks' practise we will beat thorn easily. Deacon is as fat as a pig and looks much older, but he sure lias a snappy bunch of bull players. 15oth tetims have the pick of their divisions. Anso Voung is our trainer. "Our grounds are after the big league stylo (a long way after) and are located just behind the lines. They are not out of harm's way by any means. When the big guns make your buildings shake I guess you are not vory far away. The other morning wo were out limbering up a littlo and tho shrapnel started to land close to us. Well now 1 didn't lose much time getting out of there and did the first hundred yards in loss than nothing. "BUI Hanley, or Major I should say, was at Monday's game and is looking fino. I also saw Poiicio Larose who is sporting a Military Medal. Bob Pearson was also at the game. He is a great old sport, Bob, since he was wounded, lias been collected with one of tho Y.M.C.A.'s further down the lino from whero we are located. He .is looking splendid. "Well, Mac, th+3 Is Sunday and we have played two games since 1 startf ' this letter and we honestly won two. Our manager Iias gono to Paris to arrange some exhibition games. "Wo had a new pitcher report to us just before tho game yesterday so 1 put him right into tho box. Ho provod a dandy and wo have now four of the best in the division Regards to all tho boys, from "BAGS." (By "Chick" Evans) One of (he striking things in the i growing popularity of the great game i of golf is the ever increasing number 1 of ladies who may be seen playing every day at all tho club and public courses. It is a line sign of those health-appreciating times. -May their Now I number increase! 1 have been privileged to play mixed I fnurso'iies with a number of tho best, women golfers in tho country. 1 have observed some really remarkable play by them and I should like to pass along hero a number of good ideas and suggestions which I have gathered for women players. Any girl or women who has ever played tennis or basketball must have the athletic instinct in her and should become an excellent golfer with practise. So far as 1 have observed tho only limitation to a woman's game as compared to a man's is in the distance which they can get in driving. Aside from this handicap a practised woman golfer can offer interesting competition to most men. Make a Few Mistakes From my observation and from discussions I have had on the subject with prominent women golfers 1 believe that many women golfers make a mistake in starting tho game with tho idea that their play must be different from that of men. Even the clubs which a woman uses need differ little from those of a man. Weight, length, etc., naturally should vary .somewhat with the physical endowments of a particular player but the main principles of golf are tho same for women a." for men_ The stance, and grip should be a duplicate of that proscribed for men players but with perhaps a difference in the amount of swing which a man takes on most clubs. Many professional instructors advise the half swing with both wooden and iron clubs but it is my conviction from seeing expert women play that thoy will do better to train them- selves for at least a throe quarter swing. By developing the throe quarter swing the arms arc trained to do most of the work and that is their purpose in golf. It is obvious that a woman cannot develop a slashing, smashing game sucli as many men are very skillful at. but a woman's limitations are not as marked in tills style of ulay as many 'of Mi em unfortunately believe. If a woman player gets the idea that she cannot, hope to do much in free, open swinging she never attempts to develop it and her game suffers accordingly, particularly in driving. , Should Use Lighter Clubs It is rerhups natural for a woman to feel that sho should uso lighter clubs than a man does and her reasons would be true if the men used the heaviest, clubs it was possible for them m swing. But they do not. They uso a weight of club which in their exporioiuvj they have found effective for the purpose for which it is designed and a woman should be governed by this same principle. In other words tho weight of the club and its length should bo adjusted to the woman's physique. For a woman of good sizo and average strength to pick out little light clubs is obviously wrong procedure and sho handicaps her playing and incidentally increases the exertion and effort necessary to get good results. If tho club is too light she cannot maintain the control over it that is easily possible when she can feel tho weight of the head in swinging. A somewhat shorter shaft is necessary for most women. GIANTS MAY LOSE THREE STARS New York, Aug. 27.-Tho Giants may lose three star players in tho draft, it became known hero today.
