t Saturday, .tune 9,1%2 o.ors By LEO FITTERER At this time of the year tttarty kinds of production are going on in our fields. One which is of special interest td the fall bird hunter is the successful efforts of Mrs. Pheasant. She is either <on the nest, or has her brood off and running. Or she is trying hard to set up a new house where a clutch of eggs can be safely sat upon, until mother nature puts enough starch in the beaks of the little ones to allow them to fight their way out. With all the problems to contend with such as predators—we.t Weather—mowing machines — sileage choppers — and several other timothy terrors, a hen pheasant may also find herself face to face with roaming bird dogs. Dogs which are supposed to be either tied up during the nesting season, or in a kennel where they should be anyway. Now, of course, a dog cannot read the fine print in the game pamphlet—not- can he react the dates on the calendar calling attention to this "roaming dog closure." A dog is a dog. He is a born hunter. So it is not their fault if they are left unattended and can run free as a bird (or is it free after a bird?). At any rate it might be a good idea if all dog owners considered, for a moment, just how much damage can be done to these young birds. The young of the pheasant family cannot fly. They can hardly make it around a clump of alfalfa without falling down at least a dozen times. And especially so if they are hurried by the hot breath of a roaming Irish setter, or a big black Labrador, or an orange and white Brittany. These are the true colors of some dogs I've seen afield recently. There are undoubtedly many more that cannot be seen due to the high and heavy cover at this time. Last week I noticed a black lab in one of the fields east of our house. He was having a ball — raring and tearing —chasing birds. A pair of red legs were among them. And I thought to myself — What a shame to have good dogs running loose like that. Not only do they cause terrific mortality to young birds, but think of the loss in obedience training (if they ever had any). Dogs which are allowed to become self hunters seldom ever arrive at a state of hunting dog perfection. At least not as far as the hunter is concerned. Dogs should be kenneled up, or on a leash in a run, except when they are with their master. Then they should be under control at all times. They will make for their master a better hunter. When ne^t October comes around and you load your pockets with shotgun shells, I hope your dog will be among those that were kept in their proper places during the bird nesting season. If they were, then I also hope your good faithful hunter will find his nose full of hot pheasant scent so he can reward you with a poker stiff ooint—and many of them during the season, too.

HUMAN RESOURCES Thus far the natural and manmade resources have been described. This section examines the characteristics and composition of the population and the trends of its various components. In Section III the economic activity — the people's use of natural and manmade resources — -will be examined. In Sections IV and V the problems of the area and recommendation in connection therewith are presented. POPULATION The population of Clallam County increased at a rate slightly faster than that experienced by the United States as a whole between the years 1940 and 1950 and slightly lower between the census years 1950 and 1960. In both cases the growth rate of population in Clallam County was slower than that experienced by the State of Washington. The data reflect the rapid growth of urban and suburban areas. For example, between 1950 and 1960, the population of the State of Washington increased 474,251 of which 440,083 was in urban areas. Population growth in rural areas is slowed by emigra- tion to cities and in the case of Clallam County, the emigration of a particular age group. THE DETAILED information for the 1960 census of population is not yet available. Accordingly, it will be necessary to refer to other sources for many population characteristics which would otherwise be available at 10-year intervals on a continuous basis for the 20 years, 1940 through 1960. Information for the three decennial Censuses is available, however, for the major characteristics of race, sex, age, and geographical .distribution between urban and rural areas as set forth in the following pages. THE GAINS in population experienced by the State in the de'- cade 1940-1950 were shared by both broad racial categories. The nonwhite group increased at a more rapid rate than the white group. In the decade 1950-1960, population growth slowed somewhat in contrast to the previous 10 years but all of the abatement occurred in the white group. Between 1950 and 1960 the white population increased 435,179 or 183,170 less than the 1940-1950 rise while the non-white group increased 24,423 from 1940 to 1950 and 39,072 between 1950 and 960.

Despite the more rapid increases of the non-white group, ;he relative importance of the two groups remained fairly constant throughout the 20 years. THE DISTRIBUTION of the various non-white races aggregating 1,273 (100 per cent) in Clallam County in I960 was as follows: Indian 1,149 (90.3 per cent, Negro 45 (3.5 per cent), Filipino 32 (2.5 per cent), Japanese 19 (1.5 per cent), Chinese 6 (0.5 per cent) and others 22 (1.7 per cent). Most of the Indians continue to reside on reservations. The other groups have been assimilated into the community. While there are a few residences of unknown occupants, especially in certain rural areas, which need exterior improvements, it can be said in general that there are no "slums" in Clallam County and that minority groups appear not to be presented with problems nor to present prob lems of any kind insofar as com munity living goes. The changes in population characteristics during intercensal years experienced by the State of Washington and Clallam County have been similar in several important aspects.
