That is the opinion of Adolph
Rupp. coaeh at the University of

"The screen is gaining general
use as a method of throwing the
defensive player off stride and
allowing the -oftensiye umn to cut

score," says Rupp.
The Wildcat coach defines the
sreen as "two or more men work
ing together in such a way that
the movement of the defensive
man is temporarily interrupted."
Rupp points out that screens vary
from section to section wherever
the game is played,
"In the south," says Rupp "un

ing on screen plays were little
used. The same was true of the
east where the usual type of of

Many Deer Starve
All Over U. S.,
Say Wildlife Men
WASHINGTON The U. S. Fish
and Wildlife Service says thous
ands of deer all over the United
States are starving to death.
The extreme weather has made
the situation worse, but the snows
of winter are not so 'much the
cause as the fact that there are
just too many deer.
There are more than 100 U. S.
herds of deer. Their ranges vary
in size from a small refuge to half
a state. Since the beginning of the
century they have pyramided
their numbers to the point where
tliey present a problem.
In addition to starvation and
malnutrition, in many places they
have seriously menaced the range.
Wisconsin is one of the biggest
trouble spots. Utah and parts of
Nevada are others.
Aldo Leopold, professor of Wild
life Management, University of
Wisconsin, and a member of the
Wisconsin State Conservation Com
mission says in an article in Wild
life Management magazir.e that
nearly half are known to have
shown starvation. And nearly half
are known to have been reduced
by legalized killing of female:,.
Professor Leopold says:
1. Delay in reduction of over
populated deer ranges means ulti
mate shrinkage of both the herd
and the range.
2. Reduction is the only rem
edy. Nothing else works.
3. To accomplish the reduction,
female deer must be killed
Hunters have long been educat
ed to kill just the buck deer, but
some states such as Maine and
New Hampshire have begun kill
ing the female and young deer as
well. Their deer populations are
now pretty stable.
Many people think if they kill
the female deer it will spoil their
hunting in the seasons to follow,
but wildlife officials point out the
deer will die off anyway and in
larger numbers where there isn't
enough food to go around.
Starvation occurs because the
deer kill their natural food plants
by overbrowsing. These are then
replaced by plants of little or no
The smaller deer starve first.
Diseases, parasites and killing
of weakened animals by natural
enemies accompany starvation.
Mild winters, artificial feeding
and "down tops" from logging
often postpone, but never pre
vent, the ultimate shrinkage of
both the herd and the range.
When deer become too dense,
there is no general breaking up a
nerd unless wild animals attack
them. They simply become dens
er and eventually kill ofr their
food plants and starve.
Notice is hereby given that
I will file as a candidate for
nomination to the lower house
of the General Assembly of
North Carolina, from t h e
County of Haywood, in the
May Primary, 1948. . I was a
candidate for the Legislature
in 1944 and was defeated by a
large majority. Again I was a
candidate for the same office
in 1946 and was defeated by a
very small majority. Imme
diately after the 1946 Primary,
I announced my intention of
becoming a candidate again in
1948. After consultation re
cently with a large number of
my friends and supporters
from 11 sections of the county,
and upon advice from them
that it is generally understood
throughout the county that I
will make the race again this
year and at this solicitation I
have decided to
candidate for Representative
in me ivxay Primary subiect to
the will of the Democratic vot
ers of the County as expressed
by their votes in the said Pri
mary. I give notice further
that my health has improved
to such an extent that I am
able to make the race for the
office and to render service as
Representative if I am nomi
nated and elected.
Jumping into the lead' from the
start, Canton htgh's sextet took
the Blue Ridge conference girls'
championship ' Thursday night by
winning 3,0 to 18 over Waynesville.

game, was chosen the outstanding

The Black Bearettes were ahead
