One horrible Inning was enough yes

Springfield, 111., May 20. For the
first time in a period of six years Illi
nois is to have an open season for the
killing of prairie chickens. The state
game bill, agreed upon by both houses
last night after a lively fight, establish
es an open season of seven days, from
Nov. 10 to Nov. 17, of each year, and
during which time these wild birds
may be hunU-d, with a limit of three
birds daily on the huntsman's bag. In
conference the amendment adopted in
the house protecting quail for the per
iod of four years was stricken from, the
bill and the open season on these birds
will be the same as during the last two
years, being from Nov. 10 to D!C. 10.
The only other important change in
the protecting feature of the act is clos
ing tho season on woodcocks, which
heretofore could be shot during a year
In addition to the state game com

What is pronounced by members of
the Illinois fish commission to be the
best bill on the subject ever written

upon last night when the senate con
curred in the house amendments to the
fish bill drafted by the commission.
Although 29 amendments were tacked
to the measure In the house, most of
One section of the act provides for
a license foe of $5 for each 100 yards

before the game, three prof esaors from

one of the Palmer house conferences.
At High School
The annual senior assembly, the
last general assembly at which the
seniors will be present, and their first
appearance as a class in the com
mencement festivities, was held in
the high school auditorium yester
day afternoon at 2:15. Piano solos
were played by Miss Myrtle Sum
mers, the school librarian, and John
W. Casto, of the history department
of the school. Professor E. L. Phil
brook sang a vocal solo. Principal
A. J. Burton made the usual address
to the seniors taking as his theme.
"Strive for More Than Mediocrity."
He accompanied his talk with some
charcoal sketches illustrating the
path of the individual who attempts
to master any great accomplishment.
He showed how the individual Just
starting out to master some art sees
a rosy path to glory ahead of him,
but soon finds that the way turns
and for a long time he goes on, not
even as good as the average. The
principal stated that it was here
that the individual often gave up,
while if he would continue he would
find that the way again turned and
he would rise in his profession rap
idly. Then he showed that there
was a long time when he was known
as an able man at the profession,
until the path took the last turn
and led straight to the pinnacle of
greatest success In that undertak
ing. The second drawing illustrated
the fact that the more we learned
the more we realized how much
more there remained to learn. He
adviped everyone to do all the study
ing possible in order to broaden the
vision of life.
Following the program practically
the whole school repaired to Reser
voir park to witness the annual faculty-senior
baseball game. The un
defeated faculty maintained Its rep
utation, winning by a score of 14
to 6. The faculty has never failed
to win this game, although last year
rain ended the contest with the score
tied. The score yesterday.
