The Izaak Walton League of
America’s local chapter closed their
chapter Tuesday with n membership
of 115. The League was organized
on March 18th with 32 members. A
membership drive and crow hunt has
been on since then with the result that
348 pairs of crow feet and 168 crows
eggs were turned in saying nothing of
the number of nests that were de
stroyed. The crow hunt was captain
ed, by Guy Cole and Ward Cosgrove.
Each choosing an equal number of
men. The Guy Cole team of hunters
were defeated by a very small mar
gin and Guy says it is because his men
were very poor climbers. He says,
next time he captains a team no man
will weigh over 140 pounds and must
prove himself an able climber of trees.
In all, it was a very hot contest and
a real fellowship spirit was shown by
each and every contest. The losing
side is to furnish a luncheon to
the entire membership at some future
date, when we hope at some future
state president with us and some other
able talkers on the league. We all
feel that this movement is going to
be the very biggest thing ever un
dertaken by the American people and
that everybdy" whether a member or
not, should acquaint themselves with
the things the league stands for. Let
everybody be Waltonions. Perfect
the game and fish. Always close the
gates, and try in every way possible
to prevent fiers and work to the best
interest of future generations.

“I Can Feel The Good Of
This Wonderful New
Medicine, Kamak, To
My Finger Tips,” De
clares Capt. Hamann
Like a vast forest fire the re
markable health building powers of
Kamak, the sensational new medi
cine that has just been introduced
here, has spread all over Nebraska.
Fred Hamann, Senior Captain of
the Omaha City Fire Department,
House No. 14, on Lake St., and re
siding at 905 S. 33rd St., says:
‘‘This new medicine, Kama!;, nas
put me in such fine trim in such a
short time that I want to tell all
the people of Nebraska how re
markable it is.” For a consider
able time before I started taking
lvarnak I had been feeling all out
of whack. My appetite was so
poor I couldn’t relish a meal, and
I was terribly restless and nervous,
fenarp shooting pains would strike
me through the back—something
on the order of lumbago—and I al
ways felt weak and rundown, and
any way but right.
i, m ha^eJust finished my second
bottle of Kamak now, and I feel
the good of this new medicine
