Slow i:\tinction I'rcrentrd A quarter century ago it, n\>- peareu that the -typlcnl North American animals w.erc facing extinction before the on-rush of civilization, mid the "last stand of some of these for a time was the theme of son» ami'story. But today, records will show, a consid ( "erable number have been saved ruul they are assured of grazing ureas and official protection favoi- nble to their future increase. Trapper, pelt - hunter, wngon- drlver, cattleman, railway builder and pioneer settler all took a turn at depopulating the cnee teeming animal population o < western America,.but a gradual awakening of the national imagination and conscience to (he meaning and value of the. "pioneer" animals in national life gradually brought support to the movement for conservation. President Theodore Roosevelt, once a rancher in the Dakota "bud lands," was in the van of this movement. It obtained powerful national support also from Stephen T. Mather, of Chicago, late director of tlie National park Service. Horaca M.

("Dins") L>ar- 3in^; cartoonist,, has lent his lien- chant pencil and graceful brush to the, welfare cf the nation's wild Jife. His beautiful poster-stamps are a feature of the "National Wildlife Week" celebration, and thousands of other "conservationists' have heljied. Today tbe bison population of the United Slates ami Canada is estimated to total 20.000. The prong- lioni antelope, swiftest animal of North America, whose threatened disappearance worried conservationists most, Is numerous in several states )>o«'. Bighorn sheep and Rocky Mountain goals find safety in several national parks and national forest ranges, and the beaver population is .large enough tp be" a problem to farmers In some areas. The ahnbst- ii.uuan antics of the beaver have become a popular subject in shorl- U'el films. Game conservationists have been lie.irtencd also by the assured prcs- ervation of the grizzly bear, most powerful and ferocious of western mammals. These animals are numerous in llie Yellowstone National Park and environs, in the Rocky Mountains. Nine federal areas have been established especially to aid wild life preservalion, and others have been projected. These areas embrace 2,991,017 acres. Animals also find special sanctuary in tbe national Darks, and seasonal protection in the large national forests. The National Bison Itange was established in 1909, especially to protect bison, but also affords sanctuary to considerable numbers of elk, deer, moiinlain sheep, wild ducks, grouse, beaver and pheasant. An Elk Refuge was established .,*l Jackson, Wyo., in I9i2, to safeguard the elk. that range from Yellowstone Park southward. Nebraska Has Old Kcfuge. Tiie Fort Niobrar.i game preserve was established in Nebraska in 1912. H protects buffalo, elk. deer, antelope, beaver, grouse, smcl the bird famous in pioneer literature— the prairie chicken. Tlie Sullys Hill game preserve in North Dakota, established in 1914. is populated with buffalo elk, white-tailed deer, pheasant.' geese and ducks. The Charles Sheldon Antelope Range, established by executive order in 1935, is large enough to afford au extensive grazing district for antelope. Another area for especial benefit of aiilelope is the Hart Mountain Antelope Range, in take county, Oregou/cstabllshed (n 1933. The Wichita Mountains Wild- fe Refuge, in Oklahoma, helps *lo perpetuate elk. Virginia deer and Texas longhorn cattle.

The legislative program was completed by February and n new state board of penal achninis- InUion uegan the task of "humanizing" the prison system. All state courts were notilled that the terra "chain gang" was stricken from Georgia statutes and in the future, all convicts would be sentenced cither to a "public works camp" or Tattnall prison. County works camps wardens were instructed to discontinue tin- use of chains and shackles on all prisoners. Plans were made to Imprison mast of the incorrigibtes at Tnttnall, sending the worst prisoners to a rock quarry which will serve as the "Devil's Island" of the Georgia prison system.
