Soon as the goods arrived the confidence men would ship them out of town under the cover of darkness and skip cross-country to buy out another business—and expand. Where There's n Will— The larger business houses also hardly ever fail to capture the furniture racketeers. This is a popular bit of cheating, but it usually fails. A young couple of "newlyweds," buy n suite of furniture at a credit house, put down a small sum, and then advertise "forced to leave town must sell brand-new living room and bed room suites at great sacrifice." "We usually get them in the next town," says Mr. Eisenberg, and with a twinkle, "they truly are "forced to leave town at n great sacrifice'." Where there's a will, there's usually a way for confidence men to make money, according to Mr. Eisenberg. The con follows the daily legal reports closely until he comes upon a notice to the effect that the will of, sny Mr, George Ryan has been probated, the estate valued at $756,000, and the "heirs undetermined." Mr. Confidence Man immediately becomes Mr. Albert Ryan, moves to another city, gleans out-of-town hotel phone directories for addresses of a Ryan or two in a half dozen or so cities and then writes to those victims that he has investigated the life of Mr George Ryan and has determined thai "you," like myself, nre an heir to his estate and legally entitled to share in the distribution. However, my investigation "has exhausted my ready cash and, inasmuch as you will share in the proceeds, f am taking the liberty of asking you to please share in the Ral expense," Sometimes he asks for $50 from each, sometimes ?500. He'll lake, of course, what he gets. "And, that usually," says Mr. Eiscn berg, "in the long run, is five or ten years."

So far the best efforts of conservation officials to halt indiscriminate slaying of turkeys have been unavailing. In the back woods areas where they roam, residents cannot be reached with conservation education. • Farmers Need Them For generations, these residents and their forbears have had the right to hunt where and when they pleased. Many don't even know about the game protection laws and wouldn't obey them if they did. In many mountainous regions such as in the Ozarks and the western ranges, game wardens admit that it is impossible to enforce the protection laws. Officials point out that protection of (he wild turkey supply is important not only to prevent extinction of the variety but also to aid agriculture. Biologists consider wild turkeys to be one of the best control elements against grasshoppers, crickets, locusts and other crop-destroying insects. In some regions even their first cousins, tho lame turkeys, have been drafted by farmers to cat insects which were threatening crops.
