The supermarket is not too terribly attractive to the gourmet but it is reasonably safe. Only the very well-schooled should dine experimentally in the woods.
FOR THE LOVE OF MIKE
On his way to an alumni gathering, Mike III, Louisiana State University's Bengal tiger mascot, was injured when his trailer became unhitched and overturned on the highway. The 14-year-old Mike was taken back to the university, where Dr. Robert B. Lank, veterinarian, said he was all right except for a slight laceration of his right rear paw.
Word of the accident spread rapidly, along with rumors that Mike was in a had way. So a group of Tiger fans telephoned an offer to donate their blood, if needed.
GRAND TOUR FOR SOCCER
The world's most popular sport is soccer, but interest in it grows ever so slowly in the U.S. Based on the experience of 13 Maine schoolboys just returned from a 21-day soccer-playing tour of Europe, it will be a long day before the U.S. attains any worldwide stature in the game.
"What we learned," said Bob Doucette of Bridgton Academy, assistant coach of the Maine all-stars, "was that we don't know very much. The way we play soccer in this country would make an Englishman sick, I'm afraid. But the experience, the pure learning experience, was worth a million."
No sports pages anywhere reported the results, but Maine got beaten 5-3 by the Etter Beek Football Club of Brussels, then beat the British School of Brussels 1-0.
"We were lucky in the first one," Doucette noted, with a certain acceptance of fate, "and, come to think of it, we were lucky in the second one, too."
Then came a succession of defeats at scores of 6-0, 11-2, 5-3, 6-0 and the like in Britain.
