Plea Made To Farmers On Mowing Plans Iowa farmers are urged by State Conservation Commission game officials to delay mowing government acres as long as possible. The cold, rainy weather has severely hampered pheasant nesting and many hens were killed on their nests during recent mowing. Game officials said many pheasants are now well into incubation and are not flushing before mowers. The commission asks farmers to raise their mower blades eight to ten inches off the ground while clipping government acres to avoid as much as possible the killing of pheasants. New Law Will Control Young Boat Pilots Iowa Legislators have passed a new law dealing with juvenile boat operators, the State Conservation Commission said today. According to the lav,-, noov/ner or operator of a vessel powered by a motor of more than six horsepower is allowed to permit anyone under 12 years old to operate the vessel, unless he is accompanied by a responsible person at least 18 years old who is an experience motorboat operator. Conservations Commission officials said the new law went into effect July 1. Kramersmeier Funeral Held At Ledyard Funeral services for Miss Olga Kramersmeier, 66, formerly of Ledyard, were held at 2 p.m. Monday at Bethany Evangelical and Reformed Church in Ledyard.

She was a beauty operator in Chicago un- till retiring because of ill health. Survivors include two sisters, Mrs. Lena Junkermeier of Albert City and Mrs. AnnaSchaffer of Minneapolis; five brothers, William of Algona, Albert of Buffalo Center, John, Arthur and Ervin, all of Ledyard.

Fur Harvest Is $815,957 For Past Season Raw furs sold by Iowa trappers during the 1966-67 season were valued at $815,957.01, according to reports submitted to the State Conservation Commission by 146 licensed fur buyers. Fur prices for all species except mink and beaver were below last year's averages. Beaver was the only species that showed a significant increase. Perhaps the trappers responded to the increase because the harvest more than doubled the previous years' take. Harvest figures were up for all major species, including muskrats, mink, raccoon and fox. The reduced demand for wild fur in Europe caused market prices to drop near the end of the trapping season. Taking all factors into consideration, it was a good year for the Iowa trappers. More Bunnies In State Now Than Last Year Early summer observations reveal cottontail rabbits to be in good supply, the State Conservation Commission said today. Reports to the Commission indicate an abundance of old and young rabbits being seen in nearly all counties of the state. • Excessive rainfalls during June seem to have had little effect on the broods of cottontails. Flooding of bottom lands are undoubtedly the cause for reduced cottontail populations along many of our streams but the net effect of the loss is not significant en a state-wide basis, Commission biologists say.
