"THE HOUSE OF SERVICE" ! Winnipeg, Oct. 29.-Manitoba Hoc-,key Association officials are busy these , days .trying to revise playing rules. lEaich year that .�VUan cup games are played m.a'kes hockey leaders realize jthaj som'ething should be done towards "adopting,a uniform set of rules f6r.hpckey;in Canada. "JiheTe has been .mach-ijJfq^tti^ discussion without any-'tKlng .being aecpmplished. The Ontario Hockey Association adopted six-man hookey last year because of the scarcity of players and there being so many small.rinks throughout the province, and^avlng' two players off the ice gave, the others more room for play. The professionals at the Pacific � coast turned down the six-man game 1 after giving it a trial. : There is not any need for reducing teams because the majority of hockey rinks in Manitoba are roomy. Hockey has flourished here for many years and with matters so unsettled as they are at present, this is not the proper time to start juggling with the makeup of teams because the diypping of one player makes an entirely different game. Ontario is the only p^vince where amateurs use six-man teams and until more break away from the old system,,, there i.s no'need for local men to gamble with the sport. Manitoba hockey mep seem to be j uniting for the usual SO-minute per-i iods. They realize that the weather is {too cold here to have two rest s^.s-sions because spectatbrs do not like to be kept waiting in a chilly rink without action. The off-side rule is another one that will likely cause some heated discussion. The real talk will likely be as to whetlier they should adopt the O. H.A. rule of skating players onside or not. Sgme officials think that the allowing of fon^-ard passing spoils the game and are strong for sticking to the local rule of , passing straight across or back; Being allowed to pass forward Rnd then skate the man receiving the puck onside tends to speed up the play, FLIGHT OF GAME BIRDS; i '  THE HAWK IS FASTEST. I While there is considerable variation i in the speed of flight of game birds, the table below may be taken as the most accurate approximation of the comparative speed at which the i^et-tcr known wild birds fly. The crow may be taken as an example of the slov/er flying bird, with a r.ite of 35 to 55 feet a seconrl, and with an average speed of 45 miles an hour, while many spficias of havi'k.-? attain the remarkabl.v fast speed of 200 feet a.second. Here is thi; table showing the average speed ln*fiigl\t: Bird * Ft. per See. Aver. Quail................ 65 to S.'i .75 Ruffled Grouse ...... 60 to 00 75 Snipe......:......... 50 to 70 C5 Mallard- ..;..........'., 55 to 90 75 Wood Duck .......... 70 to SO SO Teal .................120 to 140 130 Canva.3back ..........130 to IGO 145 Canada Gfcese........100 to 120 110 Red Head ...........110 to 130 120 It may be said that it ducks arc scared they can reach maximum speed at will, and this aprinKing flight is usually what the gunner has to make allowance for. On the other hand, many wildfowl are jumped and killed while hovering over decoys and moving zl'jyily, and" birds like snipe and quail are often killed before they ha-ve attained full speed. Upland birds are not often shot while passing the gun at right angles, but going straight away, quartering or twistins. had a few cases, besides medical aid there are tour graduate nurses there. The whole Claresholm to Carmangay district is apparently being well handled. Drumheller still remains the most serious situation in the province. A special report to this office this morning confirmed later by Dr. Dickson of the public health office at Calgary, who had been on the ground for two or three days indicates that the situation is well in hand although the difficulties are tremendous. There are probably five thousand people living in the valley which.includes Drumheller, Wayne and Rosedale. Probably four tliousand of these people are afflicted more or less. The deaths in this district up to last evening as reported direct to this office were 38. Deaths at Drumheller Information over the phone this morning, hcwever, says that the list of deaths as checked up is about 33, The unanimous opinion of all outside workers who have gone in, is that the people of the district have been doing splendid work. Mayor Fuller, Jesse Gouge, Dr. Sloan, Dr. Gibson, Dr. Graham and Dr. Lawson whom we sent down together with all the nurses that have been sent in and one trained iiurs'e was sent this morning together with the townspeople, the mine owners and operators, are all working in concert and all reports in-dlcate that allowin|r tor conditions which cannot be-jentirely overcome, the situation is being well handled. There was a-call-thm morning |or mattresses and cots and thi3y are being forwarded. A/glance at the,progress, the disease is making indicates clearly that we are as yet, speaking of the province generally, but going up the incline, and are not yet approximately i near the peak of the influenza load. I Most of the members of the legisla-I ture are doing splendid work in their j districts. There are a few who have not yet moved to help organize. They ; themselves may need osgani�ation at ; some later date. As to all the regula-I tions the northern half of the prov-I ince, at least, is observing them'strlct-|ly, particularly the regulation as to masks. If those who are disinclined to obey the order an'3 to accept the very highest medical advice from all . countries, were In one northern dis-I trict they would learn that -just prior to the order issued for the wearing of masks, there was a dance in a certain community, and the doctor has checked up the result carefully and he can't find a grown person that took part in that dance that Isn't today 1 down with influejiza. In an adjoining I locality at a similar gathering shortly \ after the mask, order was issued, all parties were masked, some of them had been at the prior dance, the doctor assures me that not a single person who was not at the first dance Is afflicted with the disease and there has been ample time for it to develop. Police Ordered to Enforce The police in the province are receiving instructions for more rigid enforcement of all these orders. The : provincial lioavd of health today had , under consideration a suggestion by the local board that the hours of business, at least in all retail stores, siiould be shortened from ten to 5,30. The provincial hoard deferred action until the request became more general from this city, and possibly from other parts of the province. It would seem, however, that in all larger cities an order might well go to curtail business hours in all offices, retail stores and such like places from possibly fi.30 to r>. Many demands come to this ; department and to the public health office at Calgary for a ^er distrlbu-j lion of liquor, care is Being taken ; that the druggists have supplies to the I end that the physicians may prescribe i for those wlio are ill, if they deem it j advisable.
