These are the reasons for protective wails for auto racing, screens behind home plate at baseball games, or rues for the con- duct of participants. In golf, for ins,tance, bad shots occasionally do injure someone. The peron hitting a golf bail has two duties--to make sure that n:o one is ex- ased to an u,nreasonable risk by being within the area of play to which the golfer is playing, and to ffive a loud warning to anyone who may be affected. The call of "fore" may be required either be- fore or ,after the shot. If he abides by these rules, usually he bas no liability for the ball or club that hits so,me one, even though the ball ".hooked" or "sliced" in the wrong di- rection.

She, alone ,can deter- mine success or failure. A harvest in full swing is stopped by rain. Crops are ruined by sUdden down,pours and floods. A frost may cut the yle,lds. Excessive heat or drought may bri, ng an end to hopes and dreams. Emphasis of mother nature's : s,trerlgth las been felt through- out the state this year by farm- ers and ranchers. Grass yields have been good in areas and poor in olmrs. In Klickitat county grain yields rarged from top to bottom. Individual farmers had yields of wheat from less than I0 bushels per acre to more tha ever before exTeriencod. 'Some had aver- age yields. In Adams ,and Lincoln coun- ty 'm)ther nture had .a stroag hand throughout the season. "lhe rosult in variable crop yields was again felt. In Spolane county for the mst part era9 yields' are above normal. Field aea'ages on Gaines have been reported in excess of 85 bus, hels per acre. Who can explain? Only mother nature really knows and she conrto,ls the strings.

In an)ther case in one state, contestants ted to see who could catch a ,hen. Some eager hen-catch- ers pushed a spectator and a participant through a pl,ate glass window. No financial re- covery. As a general rule, by ee,r- ing into the area of such phy- sical activities, participants and spectators are accepting certain obvious risks. They do not, Imwever, accept by their participation any acts of mis- coductn, or mi,sjudgmertt that are n'ot irhere,nt in the con- duet of the sporting event. Thus, a foul ball which caus- es an injury during the eonrse of a baseball game does not give rise to a right to recover damages, but a bell deliber- ately hit into the stands dur- ing practice would probably entitle the spectator to a re- !
