With the weatherman promising frost this weekend, hunters will be oil­ ing up their shotguns and heading for the fields and woods in quest of one or more of these popular fall quarry. The turkey population is exception­ ally strong and healthy this year, with numerous large flocks spread through­ out the area. Food is also abundant, however, allowing these flocks to stay pretty tight to their home woodlands while feeding, perhaps making them a bit harder for the hunter to find. Corn­ fields are almost always a draw for these big birds, though, and sooner or later they will come out to graze on their favorite grain. There is a two bird limit (one in the Adirondack Park Zone) for the fall sea­ son, and turkeys o f either sex may be taken. The DEC Pheasant Propogation pro­ gram will release 100,000 pheasants on lands open to public hunting through­ out the state, and mild winters have helped to stabilize local populations that make their homes on the fringes of our farmlands. Pheasants o f either sex may be taken in all areas except Rensselaer county and Washington county north of Route 149. There is a two bird daily limit, with no season limit on pheasants. Cottontail rabbits are once again plentiful for the first time in many years. Local fields and woods are jumping with them, and they don't seem to be as nocturnal as in previous years. Cottontail hunting, even without a dog, seems to be promising this season. Ruffed grouse? They are always here. The pine woods and hedgerows hide hundreds of them. Hitting them once they've been flushed -that's some­ thing else again!’ Shushan Ball Teams compiled by Molly J. Endee from the records o f John V. Nelson Shushan Blue Sox M arch 1953. There were fourteen members present and ready to begin the second season under a new name. Al Keiski had joined the ranks. The team would be unable to obtain league status but would play surrounding town teams, same as the previous year. Ar­ lington, Vt., East Greenwich, Hartford, Granville and the Smith All-Stars were added to the list o f competitors. There was now $127.25 in the uniform fund, the food sale and raffle having netted $20 and $66, respectively. Joan Rendel o f New Y o rk City, Pat Roberson o f Shushan and Josephine Murphy of Sa­ lem were the prize winners. A p ril 1953. To date, $147 has been raised, not enough to buy a good uni­ form for each team member, so the committee requested to borrow four or five uniforms from the \big team” to use. The uniforms of Gus Dering (5) and Stanley West (3) were already on loan and in use. Players were measured for hat sizes. As soon as weather per­ mitted, members would get the field in shape and begin practice. A petition to prohibit playing baseball on Sunday was rumored to be circulating about town. 1953 V a rsity Team .

The biggest change from last year, is that Roe's Bowl is back. Bill \Curley\. Roe is once again the p roprie­ tor ofrthe lanes. There are still plenty of leagues in need of bowlers,. To sign up for a league, call the center today. Barbecue Lanes has been remodeled and looks great. There are,'many new bowlers and teams. The start of the Season always brings a lot of excitement and the an­ ticipation o f a 300 game. - For months there had been specula­ tion that Cambridge Recreation would once again open up with new owners. I guess that has been pretty much squelched since the new owners have indicated ihey want to use the bowling center as a banquet house and for handicapped accessible lodging. While I never bowled there regularly, I bowled in numerous tournaments over the years and once won the Cambridge Association singles event. No question, thc lanes were tough and had their own personality. The noise level in the building was extremely high, the pole between lanes 4 and 5 gave some bowl­ ers fits as well as the closeness o f the wall on lane 1. Some bowlers did not like the over the lanes ball return with the bowling balls coming toward you, sometimes breaking your concentra­ tion. But mostly, I remember the fun times I had there, many of them just making new friends, not necessarily the bowling. While some things change for the better, in this particular case, a good friendly place no longer exists. All we have are memories. I hope that most of you who bowled there share fond memories o f Cambridge Recreation. Bill Roe is starting a new league on Tuesday nights for young people who are not able to bowl on Saturdays, if in­ terested, give him a call at the lanes.

By Tony @asile A low scoring hard fought defensive battle between two unbeaten Division I teams under the lights Friday night, ended in a 12-12 stalemate, forcing the game into overtime. The Witches de­ fense finally wore down in the extra pe­ riod, and Mechanicville walked away with an 18-12 victory. In spite o f the loss, Witches running back Aaron Kuzmich still rushed for 117 yards and two touchdowns against the Red Raiders' tough defense. The Witches, now 3-1, host Tama­ rac (1-3) on Saturday, while Mechanicville visits Schuylerville (3-1). In another battle of the unbeatens last weekend, Poultney dug in to hand Salem a 10-7 loss on Saturday. With absolutely no passing attack, and with only 3 points on the scoreboard, the Blue Devils held off the Generals more balanced offense and took a 10-0 lead in the fourth quarter. The Generals countered with 7 points of their own, but couldn't win the defensive straggle. Salem will visit Whitehall (2-2) on Saturday, while Poultney will defend its unbeaten record at Cambridge C3-1). Indians Prevail Showing their usual powerhouse form, the Cambridge Indians shut out Whitehall 26-0 on the Railroaders' home turf. Having lost only to Green­ wich in a non-divisional game, the In- dians are 3-0 in Division II, and host undefeated Poultney this weekend in what could be the Division I] title game.
