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 out: "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 each year. "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 Class of 1912 Vs &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."

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 Ever Before. 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 next month. 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 year. 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 chronicled. "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 appear we will have plenty to enthuse over and be proud of, for I feel certain I that fully 7a per cent of the present 1 Olyniplo records will be broken at the ritocUholm meet if weather and track conditions are propitious. That the Amer ican athletes will assume a commanding lead In this department of the Olympiad I have not tho slightest doubt." What She Needed. A wandering peddler Stopped at a touthern cabin and opened his pack. "Mammy, let me show you some self raising umbrellas," he began. "No use, man; no use," interrupted tha old colored woman, as she busied her self about a boiler of clothes. "Cay n't. use nothing lak dat." "How about self-raising . window shades?" "No good heah", kase dey ain't any windows wuff talkln' about." "Self-raising buckwheat?" - "No good, to me we eat cohn pone. But, mister ' "Well, mammy?"
