MOOSE HUNTER FIGHTS FOR LIFE /A/=. IN RAGING TORRENT! S"I1 bagged a giant moose, the dressed meat weigh ing 982 pounds," writes Mr. Kirsch. "Starting back to camp at dusk, we foolishly decided to ford Willow Creek, a very fast mountain stream. We figured the 150-pound packs of moose meat would keep our feet on the bottom. "We were wrong! When the water reached my chest, I was swept from my feet and trapped beneath the foaming mountain torrent! Wedged against a rock, and held down by the current and my heavy load, I couldn't budge! I thought I was done for! "I had been carrying my lighted flashlight in one hand, NOTE: An "Eveready" B and still held it. And just in time, one of the packers located me flashlight with "Eve by its beam! He rushed in, seized my pack rope and managed to ready" batteries, will drag me ashore. I most certainly wouldn't have lived to enjoy burn under water. Try It! OG that moose meat if those 'Eveready'fresh "BAT'" T DATED batteries had failed me.
