If these men only would properly
prepare for the season before it

there would be different stories
when they go home. As it is, there

Sullivan said he and O’Donnell
had a great laugh at those in cars,
hundreds of them whizzing on
every side road in quest of the
game birds. One place looked as
good as another so they pressed on
the gas and were “hunting" pheas
ants in Holt county.
“The woods, fields and weeds are
full of pheasants,” Sullivan said,
“and the faintest road last Sunday
was a race course. There are plenty
of birds here but it takes a native
to find them. A stranger cannot
come in here and in one day raise a
family and become an early settler,
and he no more can come in and
fill his bag with pheasants in one
or even several days.
“Another thing we noticed is
that vegetation this fall is very
rank and a hunter must work hard.
We used a dog and found that
“Last fall there were no weeds
and it was easy to flush pheasants,
easy to shoot them and easy to find
dead birds on the ground.

concerned you may say there are

With one rift in the statehouse

Not so, Mr. Williams, who, in

the investigation quits.
"State officials and employes of
the bank receivership division are
making attempts to tie my hands
and even resort to intimidation to
prevent me from pursuing inquiry
into the acts of officials and em

the press last week.
Williams insists that there are a
number of things about the receiv

especially as regards the alleged
solicitation of political “slush”
funds from employes by higher
ups, the employing of relatives, and
connections between erstwhile of
