This contest has been arranged by Zack M. Williams, educational director of the camp, who is to be congratulated for arranging for the visit of this colorful champion, McLaren, whose wizardy with an axe has carried him from a poor farm lad in Australia, to the peak of his profession. In chopping tours covering a score of years he has chopped before hundreds of thousands, both here and abroad. McLaren, who is nearly 50 years old, claims that outdoor chopping is a great physical developer. His own condition bears out this claim. The contest is open to any local man who has not previously competed against McLaren. A prize of fifty dollars will be paid to any contestant if McLaren fails to chop through a log in two thirds of the time the contestant takes. The handicap gives all good choppers a sporting chance to win the prize money, as it is just like giving 33 yards in a hundred vard dash.

This lecture will be delivered by Dr. Henry C. Oberholser, ornithologist, who has been in the service of the government for the past 30 years and is probably the best posted man in the countrj on the true status of the waterfowl. His illustration will include motion pictures and slides made throughout the United States and Canada. The lecture here by the bird specialist will be of particular interest to local people who are interested in waterfowl in this section. Already plans are being made to have Dr. Oberholser visit Battery Island to study the birds that make their homes there.
