GUNS in the NEWS

[Special]-

♦ Childersburg, Ala. There's nothing minor aljout Miner Cliett. At 14, Miner is being hailed as ihe hottest young gunman in the country. At the Mid-South Open, he broke 443 out of 450 targets, a world's record for any age. The late T. K. (Tackhole) Lee. of Birmingham, Ala., regarded by organized shooters as perhaps the greatest marksman of all time, used to have a standing bet of $10,000 that no one could top young teenager Cliett in a two-man match and nobody ever took him up on it.

♦ Van Wert, Ohio. Sam Price has a setter who just doesn't know when to quit. Sam got his limit of pheasants in the first 10 minutes of the hunting season, but his setter, unwilling to call it a day so soon, kept going and, in fact, hasn't been seen since.

♦ A 17-year-old Cleveland youth was shot recently by a woman he bad attacked only a few minutes earlier. The victim said she admitted the young man to her home when he represented himself as a collector for a church charity. Once inside, he attacked her. As he left the house, she found a gun. ran to the door, and shot him before he reached the street. The youth managed to reach his home and his father took him to a hospital. Police, arriving a few minntes later, heard the youth confess the rape.

♦ Richmond. Va. You won't believe it, but when Arnold Stewart shot a goose on Ocracoke Island, the bird fell into and down the chimney of the Beachcombers Club house and landed in the fireplace, ready for cooking. Well, ready except for feathers and certain other extraneous assets. Or at least so it was reported in the Richomond "News Leader."

♦ Few people know it, but pronghorn antelope, commonly thought of as among the world's great leapers, won't jump a fence. Deer will jump; pronghorns will often crawl under rather than jump even a modest man-made barrier. Because of this idiosyncrasy, in Wyoming, where the federal highway program requires stocktight fences along Route 30, underpasses are being constructed at key points to serve pronghorn transients en route to new range or to water. ★ ★ ★

♦ We have it on the word of the Kansas City, Mo., "Star" that Bob Thomas, hunting rabbits with a shotgun, fired at a running bunny, missed, but killed one of a covey of quail flushed by the rabbit. As all gunners know, there are days when you just can't miss. And vice versa.

♦ Warning to Los Angeles shooters: Better take action now against threat of vicious anti-gun legislation in your city. Phone Councilman Edward R. Roybal in protest. The proposed law, we're told, is a copy of the New York City Sullivan abortion.

Hunting Mastery Selected Tips
