High Court Rules Against Condemning Of Private Property for Shooting Area LITTLE ROCK. April 17. (fl>j — The Arkansas Supreme Court yesterday said the state ctmstUtitlnn does not give the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission authority to condemn privately-owned land tor conversion into EI public shooting and hunting area. In Its 4 to 3 opinion, the Supreme Court reversed a Jefferson Chancery Court decision instruc- that further proceedings in the'case coincide with the majority opinion. ' The question involved was whether the Game and Fish Commission has the power ol eminent domain to "acquire lands on which to establish a public cluck hunting "project. Eminent domain means the right of the state or other political subdivision to confiscate property 1 with just payment to the landowners. Wanted 1,320 Acres The Game and Fish Commission had sought to Acquire 1.320 acres of land In Jefferson County. The property was to be part of the proposed 40.000 •- acre Bayou Me to public shooting ground 'in Arkansas and Jefferson Counties. Jefferson County landowners, headed by John Humpton, went intc chancery court to challenge the R*ad Courier News Classified Ads. I commission's authority. The commission's answer was that hunting areas. We are about 15 Amendment 35 to the constitution .ives it authority to purchase, ic- cept by gift or acquire by the right of eminent domain all property necessary for the control, management, restoration, conservation and regulation of fowl and game In Arkans, T. Arthur McAmis, executive secretary of the commission, testified in the lower court: "The greatest accomplishment which this commission can make is \\\ the acquisition of tillable areas for public huntng. We are now ready for the final push (completing the Bayou Mclo project) • which will make one public hunting ground an accomplished fact rather than just something that we say we^are going to do. 3,000 Have Hunting Place "There are at least 3,000 duck hunters who really have a place to hunt. R«d about 40.000 would-be duck hunters in Arkansas. ; . /It is uncertain just how much longer most duck hunters will buy hunting licenses and duck stamps with only a faint hope of getting to go on duck hunt. "'1*116 only possibility of . doing something constructive, however, Is through the purchase of public years late In getting started." McAmis also paralleled the Bayou Meto case with Hlfgatloji surrounding the acquisition of land in FaulJc^i ner County for construction of Pa™' rm Lake. The Supreme Court recently "upheld the commission's authority to acquire (hat property by eminent domain. « However, yesterday's opinion, written, by Associate-Justice Ed P. McFaddin had this to say on (he two areas: • Cites Primary Purpose 'I 1 , was recognized that the project. {Palarm Lake) would also create a recreational area where fishing would be, permitted at certain times of the year. But it is apparent that in the Palarm Lake case the first and primary purpose of the lake was for the propagation of fish. "Such a primary purpose—propagation or conservation of ducks—Is not present in this case. In fact, the record reflects that the prime purpose. Is the shooting of ducks. '/There is no similarity between building a lake where fish may live and propagate and creating a public shooting ground. U.S. residents visiting .Canada who order 10 gallons of gasoline get as much as If- they bought 12 gallons in Ihe United State.-;, the gas being sold by the imperial gallon which U larger than the U.S. gallon. r' award him the title. To add a biwirre touch to the story, Al King, Williams' manager, liked Palmer so much, he's taking the Bermuda boy back to the United States where he'll manage him. But Pitcher Serious PITTSBURGH.
