The idea is to present a code for adoption at the next Leg isiature, wnien win give more complete protection to fish and game, ana correct numerous er rors in the present system erf laws. ine commission uesires in 'making up this new game code to get a thorough expression of public opinion before the code is presented to the Legislature. For this reason the members of the Commission ask that resi dents in different parts of the State, especially farmers, fruit growers, rts well as sportsmen send in any suggestions so that the Commission may act upon them. Suggestions are also sought from the granges, com mercial bodies, rod and gun clubs and other organizations, in order to get a game code suitablo for different parts of the state. All communications and sug gestions should be sent to J. F Hughes, secretary of the Fish and. Game Commission, Salem, Oregon. At present there arc a number of questions under discussion, that will be of interest to sports men in different parts of the state, such as the questions of bounties on predatory animals. The commission is in favor of a more rigid effort to exterminate cougar and wolves. The ques tion has been agitated in certain ar s of the state to reduce the non-resident hunting and fish ing license to the same price as the resident license. Many snortsmen are aiso in favor of reducing the limits on deer and other game. W. S. Burnett Victim of Peculiar Accident Taken to Portland for Operation ' Williams In Indianapolis News.

Dr. Arthur Gale accompanied the injured man to Portand, and said when he re turned home that Burnett had survived the operations, and had an even chance to recover. When Burnett alighted from the train, which was going about 7 miles an hour, he stepped on aloose stone, twisting his foot, causing him to lo;e his balance and fall. His forehead struck on the corner of a tie.

Twenty-two to twenty-one in favor of Madras, Metolius drink- in? the bitter dregs of defeat after eleven innings, are the brief facts covering the ball game last Sunday, ft would take an artist, with the gift of gab de veloped in the superlative degree to detail the game as it hap pened. More replete than any game we have seen with conspic uous examples of how base bal 1 should not be played, it sure furnished fun and amusement for all who braved the heat to be among those present. If Christy Matewson, Mr. Dooley or Dean Collins had wit nessed the exhiiti n, their fer tile dome of thought would have dictated manuscript by the vol Umn that would make Casey at the Bat and those other athletic classics appear as but the A B ,C's 6f immortal literature. The happy climax came way late in the evening when the lo cal boys began to take part in the game. A lead of sixteen to two in the second inning is hard to overtake, sometimes, but it was different Sunday. It was just a question of all things coming to those who wait. Meuolius de cided that twenty-one runs were enough to win, and secured that, number early in the game, just as a matter of precaution. Meanwhile Madras playing the Alphonse and Gaston act, said You first, my dear Metolius." When Metolius had gotten ap parently all the runs wanted. Madras proceeded to show the population her abiilty to promote ancensions, for from about the fourth innincr until th. final round it was just a modern version of Pussy Wants a Cor ner, with the Metolius athletes vainly striving to head off the black women of defeat that was slowly but surely creeping closer as each lnnmor was rnmnlprpH With all due respect to the in ventive genius of those who evolved the game and prepared the rules and regulations, we believe the game has suffered at their hands, for they omitted to make provision for the comedv part, and we believe their omis sion" should be corrected, for without that feature, last Sun day's game would have been cruelty to animals, and that is prihibited. However it was a great game, properly and improperly-played, filled with joys and thrills, but alas, filled also with regrets and misgivings. 1 Tom McCormack returned wecinesaay night after a months trip in California.
