CATS A MENACE TO BIRD
Prowling: Felines Kill and Rat at:
Average of Fifty Songster
Herbert K. Job, state ornithologist of
Connecticut, is after the cats. He pre
sents a strong case against them in the
following statement, which ho has given
"On a wild tract of land In Connecticut
used as a gamo preserve, remote from
any town or v!lle, during the first year
and a half of Its recent operations the
keeper In churge killed forty roving cats,
and during the next year two dosen more.
Many of these were evidently homoless,
having relapsed Into tho condition of
wild animals. Others were house cats,
accustomed to roam, mostly by night,
miles from their homes. All were prey
ing on birds and wild gam. ThlB Is no
exceptional case, but typical of what
goes on everywhere.
"People often wonder why our song
and Insectivorous birds which are pro
tected by law do not Increase. The real
wonder Is that they havo not long since
been exterminated, with an army of hunt
ing felines, especially In the vicinity of
towns, roaming everywhere In the breed
ing season, searching for nests and young
birds. If the neet Is on the ground or
anywhere that a cat can climb the case
Is almost hopeless.
"Even If out of reach, the young when
learning to fly are almost sure to flutter
down and get caught. If one wll! look
around near home he will often find
empty nests which have been robbed of
eggs or young. Tha cat Is a born hunter
and nearly all of them hunt for wild
game, even though their owners do not
suspect it. It Is a very moderate esti
mate to assume that the cat, on the
average, slays one bin! a week, gay fifty
"In most parts of Europe birds are
said to be much more abundant than
with us, though they are shot and trap
ped much more freely, A well known
naturalist, who has traveled much in
those countries, considers this due In con

&hn O'Connor H&teel uiaat
siderable measure to the comparative
absence of cats. It seems to him a locni
peculiarity of the American people to
tolerate In their homes numbers ot tcett
half-wild animals, a queer, abnormal fad.
In Europe the possession of cato Is tail
to be regulated by law. A common bar'
barity Is the practice of abandoning cai-j
by people changing their residence, leav
ing them to suffer and to prey upon
society. In pity I havt taken these home
less starving creatures and ' fed them.
At one shore resort In Connecticut I have
been told that there oro from fifty t;i a
hundred homeless cats, abandoned by
summer cottagers, eking out a wretched
existence 1 around the piers." Hartford

NEW RECORDS WILL BE HADE
Yankee Athletes Have Not Beached
Zenith of Their Fli&ht jb.
INCENTIVE ONLY lh NEEDED
Competition for Kntry Into Olyna
piad Haa Been Keener In Track r
ana Field Event Tha tZZ
NEW YORK, Juno 15.-That the Amer-;
lean athl-te has not yet achieved thr
senlth of his flight after records It be--,
coming move apparent every day. Given
the proper Incentive and training and
new figures In many of the events form
ing the average nlthletlc neet program -can
and will be bettered In seasons to
cme.t This was proved by the thorough
manner in which the United States track
and field stars went after the Olympic
recorda on the ova of the fifth Interna
tional games to bo held at Stockholm
The Incentive needed to spur on the.,
best performers in club and college circlet
was mrpUed In th destre to make tha
team which represents this country In
the Swedish stadium during the garnet ;
July 6 to 15. As a result the competi
tion has been keener In all branchet of
track and field sports this spring than
In many years. Record after record hat
been wiped out and replaced by better
times and distance! until it would appear
that "of the breaking of recorda thera
la no end." I .
So general and widespread haa been'
this successful assault on figure! thought
to be Invincible that even the leading
athletio authorities henitate to fix a
limit en the future performances of the
spiked shoe clan. With Gardner of Yalo
vaulting 1$ feet 1 inch; Hortne cleaxln;
the . bar In the running high jump at 6
feet 7 Inches; Rose ahatttrlng tha thot
put figures; Duncan the discus record,
and a score of runners equalling or Mr
son for the national enthusiasm with
which thia country It backing the Amer
ican team in tha fifth Olympiad.
Never 9 a eh n Season.
Discussing tha epidemic of record,
breaking James E. Bulllvan of tha Amer
ican Olymplo committee recently eald:
"I am ready to throw up my nandt to
far at the future It concerned. There
never has been such a season for all
around athletio success at the present
one. We all expect a record to go here
and there each year, but when they be
gin to fall In bunchea, why. you can't,
blame the old timera If we Just tit back
aghast. Of courae new records in
Olympic eventt are not to remarkable
at In our regular Amateur Athletic union
contests, since It It only once In four
years that the American performers com
pete In these odd distances. Outside o
Olympiad yesrt, for Instance, there are
no trials at 100 meters, which, figured
according to American athletio standards,
equals a trifle over 109Vi yards.
"It Is not surprising, therefore, that
thfise odd distance records should be fre
quently broken under constant attack
by our atnletes trained to the minute tor
the American trials. The very fact that"
regular standard events, like the pole
vault and high jump, go by the board.
Is a better Indication of the form that
the club and college athlete has reached.
As to the reason for this athletio condi
tion, 1 think it can be divided Into three
classifications: First, bettor and more
scientific training methods; second, the
general growth of, athletlct Itt all part
of the nation, and, v third, the unusual
amount of interest and training created
by the fuot that this Is an Olymplo games
llr-Uevra In Yankee Ability.
"These, of course, apply to the par
ticular and present epoch of record
breaking. I am and havo been for years
a firm believer in the ability of the
American athlete to load the world In
this lino of sport. Some years ago, dur
ing an athletic discussion In the Chicago ,
Athletio assocsiatlon club house, I, K.
Baxter and Myer Prinstelm both Olymplo
honor men, asked me If I believed that
a pole vaulter would ever clear thirteen
feet and a broad Jumper twenty -five feet
I answered, Tea.' The pole vaulter has
arrived in Gardner, and I expect to see
a twenty-five foot jump at Stockholm
next month. Furthermore, the 8-seoona
sprinter will arrive one ot these days in
the person of soma big. powerful atnleta
with the nervous temperament necessary,
for such a feat. Ha will be a high-powered
human mechanism, capable ot hurl
ing himself the full 100 yards at top
speed, from the second he leaves the
starting pit and then another so-called
Impossible sthletlo achievement will be
"o far as I can see be Isn't In sight
at this moment, but these athletio tor
ntdoeit sometimes burst into view with
out preliminary warning, and for that
Tna:,t I can t say that such a sprinter
may not be competing at the Olymplo
gsmu In July. Even should he fall to
