lost many of these dogs, which were
among the best bred and most valu

of the malady, which resulted in the

No Game at Lancaster;
Swarthmore Quarantined
Lancaster, Pa., Oct. 12.—Football
here has been given another setback
by the influenza epidemic. An
nouncement was made yesterday
that the game between Franklin and
Marshall 'and Swarthmore College
has been canceled because bf the
malady. Swarthmore has been
placed under quarantine and ten of
the F. and M. players are out of
the game because of the disease.
Lancaster High will also remain
idle to-day. A game had been sched
uled with Millersville Normal, but
the closing of city schools made It
impossible to keep the High school
team intact.

"Johnny Get Your Gun," Pleads
Tom Marshall; M AII Must Shoot"
The art of wing shooting was
taught at an early date, when feath
ered game abounded In this country
in such unlimited numbers that a
bag limit was an unheard-of possi
bility, and a closed season was a
monumental Joke. .
Sjjortsmen during that period did
not contemplate the ultimate disap
pearance of those feathered aces of
the air, neither was the marked de
crease due to Excessive bags killed
by the hunters. The march and en
croachment of civilization, the cul
tivating and reclaiming of swamp
and pasture lands, the cutting off of
the timber and replacing of rail and
hedge fences by the land-conserving
barbed wire, eliminating in a great
measure the nesting, breeding, and
resting sanctuaries, has been the real
cause of game disappearance.
In some instances the use of mod
ern firearms and ammunition has
been cited as one of the reasons.
Protective legislation, the enactment
of stringent state and county laws,
governing the season and bag limits,
are keeping pace with improvement
in firearms. It makes no difference
what weapon is utilized in killing
the bag limit laws are respect
ed as regards excesses. It is posi
tively the man behind the gun who
is responsible for the killing of game
as a field novice is never destructive
of wild life.
Change in environments has been
the means of forcing all species of
wild life into restricted localities,
which for the most part have been
pre-empted by purchase, lease and
conversion into game preserves and
sanctuaries, where shooting clubs
are permitted to hunt under restric
The establishing of clubs has ma-
I terially assisted in the preservation

petuated; on many preserves arti
ficial game resorts have been crea

the possession of Individuals. the
enormous increase in land values
would have certainly induced drain
age and reclaiming, thus driving all
game to state and national preserves
or large bodies of water. The major
portion of the shooting clubs ana law

amounts of game at any time.
The Duck Island Club on the Illi

of Uncle Dan Voorhees. the "Tall
Sycamore of the Illinois," are most
punctilious in their observance of
rules and regulations. During the
closed season, as designated by the
federal law, the preserve becomes a
game sanctuary, under the supervi
sion of the caretaker, whose duty Is
to feed, guard, propagate, and pro
tect. This is the policy of most clubs
who assist materially in the con
serving of wild life against the en
croachments of civilization.
The gradual disappearance of game
has forced the would-be wing shot
into other channels for experience

Trapshooting has been endorsed by
Uncle Sam and instructors placed in

great patriotic pastime is certainly
destined to become the major sport
in America.
As a conservation of the all-es
sential element in the winning of the
world's war—time— every man with

45 . should immediately learn to
shoot. This admonition also applies
to the Home Defense Guard or pros

shoot. Every woman should be able

Calls Out Six of the Crack
Football Players For the
Officers Training Camp
Uncle Sam handed University of
Pennsylvania an awful Jolt yesterday
when he handed in a list of the stu
dents accepted for the officers camp.
A full dozen, either active in Red
and Blue sports or with the manage
ment were in the roster. >
The exception is Alexander Farma
kls, the football player, who is suf
fering from an attack of pneumonia,
which followed epidemic Influenza.
His condition is said to be critical.
Fnrmakis played end for two years
at Central High School and also star
red at center for one season. He en
tered Penn last fall and earned a
place on the freshman eleven. He wrfb
counted upon to fill a 'varsity berth
this year.
The students who have been listed
to go. other than Farmakis, are
Harry Kellar, oarsman; Dick Supplee,
Harold Kamerer, Red Ellson, Bill
Wolfe and Sylvan Friedman, football
players; Bill Beard and Harry Kobb,
soccer players; Jack Stinson and O.
M. Pollard, crew managers, and Dutch
Peck, the star basketball guard. Earl
Van Vliet, the editor-in-chief of the
Pennsylvanian, also has been so'ected.
All the students will go to Camp
Gordon in the infantry school ex
cept Supplee and Pollard. The former
will enter the axtlllery school at
Camp Taylor and Pollard will see
service at Camp Hancock with the
machine gunners.
The loss of the six football men.
Including Farmakis, is a severe blow
to Penn's chances on the gridiron.
The Lpe will be stripped of five ex
cellent prospects, Supplee, Farmakis
Ellson and Wolfe were virtually birv.
of positions and Kamerer had a good
chance of landlnK a regular Job.
Friedman would have made a gcod
second string back, as he was the
fastest mad on the squad.
