1958 restoration strategy for grayling above barriers - will get $107,290.79 less federal aid for fish...
will get $107,290.79 less federal aid for fish and game work in fiscal 1958 than originally originally announced, but Ihe impact will be felt only in fisheries, not in birds and big game. When Ihe federal fish and wildlife wildlife service refigured its allocation allocation to the states, there simply wasn't the money it first had figured figured on receiving from excise taxes on fishing tackle, guns and ammunition. Hence, au unveu nan to take proportionate cuts. Now, Montana will get $105,511.32 $105,511.32 federal aid for game fish work and ?524,8«.1« ior game and bird work, both to be matched with state money, four federal dollars to one state. For Pillman-Roberlson Pillman-Roberlson Pillman-Roberlson or game and bird work, tins means only thai more will be drawn from re serves, part of which are avail able as tbe result of money held out during World war II by the federals, then distributed slates after the war. On this basis, plans will go ahead about as planned. Besides, even with the cul, Ihe slate, will have six per cent more money than it had m fiscal 1957, wnicn was J>*a« 980.53 federal.

Edwin Carter, Professional Golfers' Association tournament Dodger Headaches Confined to Play During plenty of matching money for the larger allocation, there will be no trouble now. With fisheries, there is a differ ent story. A younger, less heavily. ; financed program, there will have ; to be some changes made with the reduced funds for the fiscal year now under way. Federal aid to fisheries, with the reduction, ill come to 8 par cent less than a year ago, when it totaled $114,-342.85. $114,-342.85. $114,-342.85. Matching money won't be a problem, of course, wilh a re duction, but the total will, since net drop over Ihe previous year. \ Walt Allen, superintendent of fisheries, sees Ihe matter in this light, research projects, now well under way, will have to go on to completion to keep from wasting money already in them; current expenses, such as salaries, will have to go on loo; any drawdowns will have to come in stream and lake rehabilitation or substituting substituting game fish for rough fish in ruined waters. Even so, Ihis probably will mean only that the program won't be as ambitious as Walt would have liked to -;e -;e it. Last year the department cleaned up 15 bodies of water totaling about 4,500 acres. To date the biggest project of all was cleaning up the Marias drainage above the nam, now paying off in good fish ing. This included 22,700 acres of water and fiOO miles of streams and Ihe river itself. Besides, the 350-acre 350-acre 350-acre lake and a number of farm ponds were swept out and replanted Next big job that Walt intends to tackle already is under and because of a 20-year 20-year 20-year record of rough fish and no trout he con siders this a No. 1 undertaking. Added to this is the high value of the whole recreational area involved in Ihe Clearwater coun try northeast of Missoula Even with reduced funds, Walt feels this is a must for fiscal 11)53, particularly since the department department already has built a barrier at the head of Secley lake to hold the rough fish downstream. downstream.
