(CP) What do two women do when they go partridge hunting? Why, they shoot two moose, of course. "There was a third moose in there but we were only allowed one said Myrt Dixon, one of two Mattawa housewives who dropped a charging bull moose when the half-ton mon- ster was Jess than 100 feet The two had got themselves lost a few days ago in the James Bay lowlands, more jhan 100 miles from the nearest road, with the compass left be- hind in the cabin in somebody's purse. When they shot a second moose a search party was at- tracted by the firing and two men arrived on the scene just in time to help the ladies clean the trophies and help pack out the meat. Mrs. Dixon, a widow who op- erates a lunch bar in this town 30 miles east of North Bay, and her chum, Mrs. Albert Morin, get off for an afternoon of part- ridge hunting at Temagami, 60 miles north of North Bay. Ask About The NEW INVISIBLE MULTIFOCAL LENS WIULTILIHO Besides their shotguns, they each packed a .30-30 carbine "in case we ran into a bear." They also bought moose lic- "just in ease." At Temagami they found the woods crowded with hunters. They pushed north another 180 miles to Cochrane. Still too many hunters to suit them. At a seaplane base they pleaded with the pilot to take them to a more isolated loca- tion. 'He'd never seen two unes- corted women moose hunters before and I guess he didn't want us on his said Mi's. Dixon. They wore down his caution and sunset found them en- sconsed in a tiny outpost cabin at a .lake in the James Bay lowlands. Next morning they went hunt- ing. "By 10 a.m. we were lost in a swamp with no idea where we said Mrs. Dixon. "Our compass was back in the shack in one of our purses." Later, amid falling snow and rain they found themselves at another lake. They decided to spend the night there and gath- ered firewood and used hunting knives to make a windbreak and a balsam bough bed. They also neglected to bring any food. "We each had a peppermint tor dinner and saved the last peppermint to divide for break- fast." They took turns staying up to tend the fire. Were they scared? New indoor sport! Floor tile "racing" with Armstrong Place 'n Press Excelon tile. The "race" is on for beau- tiful floors. And Armstrong Place 'n Press is ihe easiest do-it-yourself floor tile ever. I. Peel off the paper. 2. Place tile in position. 3. Press down. The adhesive is already on the back. It sticks by itself. No more putting off. Bright- en up those drab, dingy rooms in record time. A 9 x 12 foot room takes about li hours. And Place 'n Press goes over old tile or lino- leum. Or directly on most basement concrete. Any- where as long as the floor is flat. And because there's no messy glue, you can leave your job partly done for days without worrying about the mess. Uss leftover files to cover table fops. Line cupboards, drawers or shelves. Remember the name is what you do! Tlie floor tile That's fun to install. From (Armstrong "Oh, no, we both like the woods." But there were a few nervous moments as rutting moose bawled and crashed through the forest. Next morning they decided to try to get back to their lake. "The weather was clearing and tliere was a chance the pilot would see us on his way into the said Mrs. Dix- on. "Suddenly we saw a bull and two cow moose. The bull saw us at the same time and headed our way at a gallop. We started blasting away. The first shot hit him in the head and turned him from us. He took three more bullets and went down for good. He came too close for comfort." 'Mindful, of their other licence, the women turned their car- bines on tiie nearest cow. She went down with a slug through the heart and one through the neck. Meanwhile, back at the lake, Harold Elliott and Dan Jaist who occupied a similar outpost cabin, had a hunch the women might be hi trouble. They set off on tile trail and soon were attracted by the shooting. When the plane arrived it was obliged to make two trips out to take the ladies and their meat. At Hearst, the ladies called home. Albert Morin, who thought his wife was at Temagami re- ceived the call from Hearst, 420 miles north. He was asked to bring a truck. "He's the nervous said Mrs. Morin with a smile. "He wouldn't have let'me go if he'd known where we ended up." As for the partridge? "Come to think of it, we never saw one." Fall tea and Bake sale, W d- nesday from to 5 p.m. in the ANAF Club.

U.S. Economy Shoivs Effect Of Midi Skirl WASHINGTON (Reuter) A new reason for oppos- ing the niicli look was put forward by the White House possible effect on the U.S. economy. Latest government statis- tics showed the consumer price index rose last month, and one factor was a sub- s t a n t i a 1 increase in the prices of women's clothing. "H this is the result of the midi, then it is another rea- son for having some reser- vations about the movement in that Paul McCracken, chairman of the president's council of economic advisers told White House reporters with a smile. Ann Land ers DEAR ANN LANDERS: We hear a lot these days about children who have no respect for their parents. What about parents who have no respect for their children? Here's what I meafil: Mom and Dad drag the kids out of bed at a.m. to take them on a 350 mile trip. They arrive at their destination and promptly tell the kids they are going to a party to see relatives "so stay awake and act Next they are dragged to another party more relatives. Again: "Stay awake and act polite." They are then given a quick refresher course on names so they'll know Aunt Zelda from Cousin Kate. The food consists of tidbits served with drinks, a cheese dip and potato chips. At a.m. the kids are put to bed on the floor 22 hours without sleep. I am an adult who went through this .rigorous routine and I was half dead for two days. I know people who take better care of their animals. Any comment? Out DEAR OUT: Sounds rough, but I'll bet the kids had a good time and it's better than leaving them at home. K the parents dragged them like this every week I'd report them to the Humane Society, but for a one-time thing it's nothing to get excited about. P.S. Kids recover faster than adults. a Is alcoholism a disease? How can the alcoholic be treated? Is there a cure? Read the booklet "Alcoholism Hope and Help" By Ann Landers.
