not well represented irithe last two
seasons, but past years have seen
teams turned out there that were su

Hunting, 59 killed; football, 16
killed; baseball, 59 kilted.
These figures, compiled on the
most recent season in the three
branches of outdoor sport, show
hunting the most dangerous pastime.
There were as many deaths in
baseball as in hunting, but the base
ball season covers nine months of
the year, while hunting lasts only a
few months, and there are many,
many more persons engaged in base
ball than in hunting.
The football season lasts about as
long as the hunting season, butithe
death toll is much smaller.
Besides the 59 persons killed in
hunting, 66 were badly injured. The
figures are gathered from 18 states.
Last year the dead numbered 111, the
injured 162, t
The decrease probably is due to
the fact that fewer persons hunted
this year. Wisconsin, for instance,
passed a law prohibiting the shoot
ing of does and limiting each hunter
to one buck. Many old-time hunters
stayed at home.
Michigan, as has been the case for
several years, led in deaths with 14.
Among the deaths in Michigan was
that of Jacob Bensomen of Calumet
He was 70 and had liunted for years.
He went out this season for his last
hunt He was found dead from heart
failure, his body lying across his last
bit of game.
Two women were killed. Mrs. J. E.
Ford of Danville, HL, was accidentally
shot by her husband while on a duck
hunt in Colorado. Mrs. Reuben Bart
lett of Blanchard, Me., was shot by a
hunter who thought he was shooting
at a deer.
Accidental discharge of guns was
responsible for most deaths and in
juries. In many other cases hunters
shot at what they believed to be game
and found they had killed fellow
The death toll: Michigan, 14; Illi
