A new fee for trucks owned by farmers, from 4,000 to 20,000 lbs., is just half of that fee charged for commercial trucks and trail- ers. For trucks 20,000 pounds or over, the fee is the same as for commercial trucks and trailers.

First Bird Date Oct. 19; Chink Hens Spared Comes the 19th o—f October and 5; 1 ant butgwill spare the pheasant hens, under the provision of a I state game commission. For the first time in the his- tory of hunting in this state, hunters will be allowed to shoot only the male bird. Eleven Split dates have been set aside for pheasant hunters. October 19, 20, 22, 25, 26, 29, and November 2, 3, 9, 10 and 11. The bag limits on the Chinesei roosters have been set at a total) of three a day. A hunter may have six birds including the pre- vious day’s game, provided it is tagged by an authorized agent of the game department. The open season on Hungarian partridges will run concurrently with the Chinese rooster season in most parts of the state. The game commission has seen fit to effect a closure in Yakima, Pierce and Thurston counties that may not be lifted during the season. Dates Announced Mason County hunters may take quail during the same open season as that of the pheasant,. with the additional dates of Nov- ember 12 to 23 being open. The bag limit on quail has beenl set at ten birds daily and twenty in possession, half from the pre- vious day‘s hunting, if properly tagged. Provisions have been made for] mixed bag limits which may equal the daily limit on each species. Double the daily limit for two days‘ hunting will be allowed, if those taken the pre- vious day» are tagged. . Limits Announced Season on blue grouse, ruffed grouse and Franklin's grouse has been set at September ‘14, 21, and October. 5 and 6. Hunters must adhere to the three-bird possession limit with not more tléan one Franklin grouse includ- e . Deer will be hunted approxi- mately the same dates as last year, from October 5 to 26. Male elk with visible horns may be taken October 2 to 11 inclusive. The bear hunting season will run' concurrently with the deer hunting season in Eastern Walsh- ington. In Western Washington, hunters will have from October 5 to January 31 with a closure (during the elk season to get their i hear. Only one bear may be tak-l on by a hunter during the sea-l son.

' Both Saturday and S u n d ay there were only sprinklings of fans in the two bleacher sec- tions but the grandstand was virtually a sellout on both oc- cations. Incidentally, the large numbers of rookies on a team‘s performance was also pointedly evident in the play ofi the Los Angeles club, which used', three rookie infielders, =two ne-l ophite gardners and pitching. “lambs” to start three of the four games. Their mistakes in throwing to wrong bases played a helpful part’ in Seattle’s success in the four games this observer witnesses. ENTICING, ISN’T IT ? Football fans of Southwest Washington have an attractive inaugural to the 1941 college gridiron season neatly arranged for them by the schedule mak- ers at Pacific Lutheran Col- lege and the University of Wash- ington.

STEPPING REWARD Speaking of P.L.C., incidentally, brings to mind the great "im— provement" which took place yes- terday on the Lutheran practice field when new goal posts were dedicated. ! Such things as erecting new lobus, Ingham, Curran and Prante. goal posts are nothing to make , a fuss over on any other col— lege campus in the United States, but things are different out at P.L.C. Those goal posts they dedicated yesterday are the FIRST goal posts P.L.C. football players have ever had. Yep, it’s so. There was a lit—l tle college gaining national recog- nition for its ‘aerial circus’ the past two or three years, and which won its greatest victory with a 40-yard field goal from a bad angle, yet it practiced on a field: completely devoid of uprights. The try-for-points kickers and posts. So it’s no wonder Pacific Lu- theran College made so much ov- er their “dedication” yesterday.

He saw no departure from the indus- try's normal procedure of improv— ing its car year after year, and said that the 1942 cars would be better from a wide variety of appearance and mechanical stand-.- points. “I expect to see enough advance- ments in the new Nash ‘600’ to make it the most completely new development in the automotive World,” Pigmon declared. “The CPmPany entered the lowest-price field with this car last fall after fouryears of development and the expenditure of $7,500,000 and the car was a complete sell-out only .a’few months after it was placed “1 fun production."

Larry MacPhail Proposes BY ART BRONSON LARRY MAC PHAIL, whose, able management has put the -Brook1yn Dodgers on the map. has visions of a stadium for his team that would outdo anything yet built. He’d like to have the city of New York con- struct a stadium that would be the last word in sports. It would seat 200.000. Philadelphia Sta— dillm seats 105,000, and Soldier Field in Chicago has accommo— dations for 120,000. MacPhail believes his team yould easily attract 200,000 to “F 1mportant games. World se- rlPs games played in such a sta- dium could be offered to the fans at prices or $1 to $3 per ducat. Yankee Stadium, which seat? 80.000, is obsolete, Mac- Phail says. D t provide plenty of under- ground parking space for the convenience of the fans, Mac- Phail thinks. He would elimi- nate bleachers altogether. He doesn’t think fans should sit out 1“ the sun and rain,.even at re- dUCEG rates. , ’3 8 WHEN. Brooklyn fans go to a ball game, by the way, they make a circus out of it.
