Deer Season To Open October
15th. Hunters Disappointed
With Bear Prospects
THE OLD HOME TOWN
By STA'sH F
An ideal squirrel season, is the pre
diction of Haywood sportsmen, who
took to the woods yesterday as the
season opened. From now until De
cember 15, squirrels may be hunted.
County Games Warden, Cody Plott,
looked for a "bumper crop" of hunt
ers this fall.
More interest has been shown in
hunting this year than in several years
past, it was reported. Several sports
men have bought expensive equipment,
and plan to go after game and birds in
a "big way."
The deer season opens in Haywood
and adjoining counties on October 15,
and remains 'open until December 15.
The limit is one a day, and three for
the season. Only male deer are to be
Some sportsmen are not so enthused
over the prospects for a good bear
season, although the season does not
open until October 20, there remains
time for conditions to improve for a
good -season. The bag limit on bear is
2 a day and two a season. The bear
season ends January 1.
Opossum and raccoon may be hunt
ed with gun and dogs only. There is
no bag limit during the season, which
is from October 1 to February 1.
Steel traps for these animals are
unlawful in Haywood county, except
where set on own premises for the
protection of domestic fowls or crops.
Quail and rabbits cannot lawfully
be hunted until November 20. The
season ends February 15, with a
limit of 10 a day, and 150 for the sea
son. Ruffed grouse has a limit of 2 a day,
and 10 for the season, which opens
November 20 and continues until De
The unprotected birds and animals
in this county are: English sparrows,

(Special to The Mountaineer.- With
three weeks of intensive drill behind
them the Canton high school Black
Bear football machine is putting on
the finishing touches of their prepar
ation for their opening game with
Andrews Wildcats here Friday night,
at 7:30 o'clock. .
With a squad of approximately 50

The backfield is being built around
Bill Flynn, '3(5 All-Western back, and
Howard Sams, another veteran per
former. With Clark, center, McClure
and Owen, ends, Robertson and Coop

veterans, Coach Poindexter is faced
only with the problem of - developing
another satisfactory tackle to have a
line that will rate with any; in the
Blue Ridge Conference.
The Bears will play an eleven game

Enka's baseballers proved beyond
a doubt last week-end that they were
the class of the league, as they de
feated a picked all-star team from
the other seven clubs, 9-4, 2-6, and 9-3.
The series, which was played in Me
Cormick Field, in Asheville, climaxed
what has probably been the Indus
trial League's most successful season.
In the first contest, on Saturday,
"Spider" Cooper, little Enka hurler,
limited the all-stars to eight scattered
hits, as his mates hit three all-star
pitchers for fourteen hits within the
first four innings. Ward, Tryon hurl
er, who is only 1(5 years old, took over
the pitching assignment, and allowed
only one hit for the remainder of the
In Sunday's double bill, the all-Stars,
behind the effective pitching of
"Stonewall" Jackson, of Green River,
who fanned 10 and allowed only 6
hits, took the first game, 6-2, to even
the series, but the league chaps came
back in the nightcap, to win, 9-3;
Robert Putnam, of Hazelwood, started
the second game for the all-stars, but
was removed in favor of Barley, of
Brevard in the sixth frame. Bailey
soon gave way to Smith, of Green
River,, however. Clarke, of Hazel
wood, and Pittillo, of Brevard, shared
the catching duties of the second game.
Deal, of Brevard, starred at bat in the
first game, with 3-4, and Munday, of
Enka, led in the second, with 4 hits.
The Mountaineers appear to be in
fine physical condition, and as to the
mental half, it couldn't be better . . . ,
this year's group of boys is one of the
cleanest and most gentlemanly ap
pearing that it has ever been my
pleasure to witness . ... if they ap
ply the same snap and drive in their
games that they have been showing in
practice, we can look for a champion
The schedule for this year shows
two games with Canton . . , one in
Canton, on October 15th, under the
lights, and one in Waynesville on
Thanksgiving Day , . . which is a very
good idea, any way you look at it.
With the schedule that Coach
Weatherby mapped out for the team,
there won't be a single game in which
the boys can take things easy . . . this
year's team is going to have to make
up for the loss of a great many of
last year's regulars by driving every
minute of play.
Too bad about Joe Davis, wasn't it?
, . . . Joe will be back though, in about
four or five weeks, and then he has
next year to look forward to after 1
his broken arm heals.

"Dobey Joe" Osborne, of Texas,
pined the broad shoulders of Joe
Marsh, 240 pound grappler from Wy
oming, to the mat two straight times,
after losing Ihe first fall. Osborne, a
squat 238 pounder, used rough tactics
throughout, and won the final fall
amid boos from the 250 fans present.
Marsh took the first fall in about
eleven minutes, after he had slipped a
"half Nelson" on Osborne, and rode
him to the mat. Osborne objected to
the fall, and the fans booed him from
Osborne, however, wasn't long in
taking the lead in the second fall,
executing a series of toe-holds, body
scissors, tackles, and others; he even
wrapped the ropes around Marsh's
neck and pulled them. "Dobey Joe"
turned the trick in the second fall by
seating himself a-top Marsh, and
pulling him backward by a neck hold,
straining his back. Marsh, nursing his
weak back, was an easy victim in the!
third and final fall.

Out For State Team
Robert Wagenfeld, former high
school football player, is among the
candidates out for daily practice under
Coach Doc Newton at State College.
Wagenfeld is out for an end posi
tion, and his weight in the official ros
ter of State players lists him as fol
lows: First year, end, weight 185, age
19 and 5 feet 11 inches.
He is the only Haywood boy listed
on the State roster.
Some more of that type of matches
will assure a good crowd every Friday.

tled in Asheville several times, was
present, and according to Powers, will
work in the near future .... wouldn't
a match between him and the Texan,
"Dobey Joe" fit in 'nicely?
Isn't it strange how a crowd will
pick it's favorite the minute the two
participants enter the ring? ... last
Friday Marsh hadn't crawled through
the ropes before the crowd was yell
ing for him.
