Extensive efforts will also be made this year to rescue fish caught on lowlands following inundation incident to spring rains, he says. One hundred ther for the fur to properly set, just as you would let your corn crop ripen before hauling it to market. Most all of the fur taken before the law opens is what dealers call 'unprime fur,' and commands only a small price." Mr. Meyer suggests that if any member has a grievance to thrash it , and five thousand game fish were res "Remember that fn counties where there are strong fish and game protective associations, the game hog often takes the hint and saves you the trouble of reforming him. Ever since laws were enacted it has been a violation to go through another man's pocket, yet we always have someone trying) that very thing. Violation in many cases comes from pure ignorance as, for example, when boys trap for fur before it is prime and, when they attempt to market the plunder, find that it is practically worthless. "The game hog makes all the trouble. It is he who enrages the farmer against all shooting and fishing. It is he who continuously finds fault with the game wardens and the laws. You will find the game hog in all stations of life. He may be from the city, the village, or from the farm, but wherever he is game is destroyed and all lawful fishing and hunting suffer through acts which he constantly perpetuates.

T. Meyer, president of the Indiana, Fish, Game, and Forest League, in a bulletin issued to 130 organized fish and game protective associations organized under the supervision of the state conservation department. Mr. Meyers says the gyame and fish hog is so vicious and active a citizen that all-the-year-routtd work is needed to combat his efforts. He advocates that members of protective societies be cheerful and hopeful when considering the "hog", for it is persistency that counts, and there are new ones developing all the time.

He pointed out that in four state hatcheries his division in the last decade propagated, reared and planted in public waters in Indiana 38,984,000 baby fish. The average cost of each fish so propagated was less than one-half cent, to be exact .47 (forty-seven hundreths of a cent.)
