THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, IWf BLTTBET1LLB (ARK.) COURIER 'JOSWB PASE mra Big Lake Hunting Area Plans Explained Capitol Hill Newsmerrto Bar Tass Press Gallerie Admission State Officiol < Tells Misscooms Of Development T. H. Holder, coordinator of the State Game and Fish Commission, last night explained 4^6 members of the Mississippi County Wildlife Association what steps the commission plans to take toward the development of the 7,000 acres of land purchased recently at Big Lake into a public hunting area. Mr. Holder told the sporUmen that the commission already lias done some clearing work at the ar«t and that the grounds would be ready for use during the 1951 duck season. However, he said that hunters will have to use the area "pretty much as It is now" during the coming season. "It will take some time to develop the area the way we want to develop it." he said. "We want to be sure that we are doing the right thing when we do it." Mr. Holder stated that one of the lirst things to be done toward the development of the area is to make ,>it more attractive to waterfowl. ."We already have cleared some new holes in the area and expect to'clear more and to sew food to attract the waterfowl." Area Primarily for Ducks •The area will be primaiily for ducta, Mr. Holder said. ^fo: He said that the commission f^lans to construct eventually some dams within the boundaries of the are* to cleanup some sloughs and to..create empoundments. The commission also hopes to stabilize the boundary between the Federal Pish and Wildlife Service (time refuge and the state-owned public shootin? area. At present the federal refuge boundary crosses the floodway ditch, which 15 the main inlet to the shooting area, at several point*. It Is the commis- •ioh's plan to get the eastern boundary of the refuge changed so that the (loodway ditch will be included in the public shoot-ing area. Open to Public Mr. Holder stated that the area will be open to the public provided •tate and federal duck hcenseh are purchased. The commission does not plan bo establish any strict regulations for the area with the possible exception of the prohibit- in; of a person to bring more than one day's kill (four ducks) out of the area. ; This, he explained, will help prevent a person or a group of persons from monopolizing duck shooting in the area. "Nobody will have sole right to a blind located within the boundar- ^•s'of the public shooting of the IPrea even though that person built the blind," Mr. Holder said. Houses Must Be Moved Mr. Holder told the sportsmen that houses or other livable or sleeping quarters now located within the boundaries of the shooting area will be required to move them by Sept: 4, 1953. The discussion of the area proceeded a short business meeting of the county association at which officers for the coming year were elected. C. G. Redman of Blytheville, was elected president to succeed Ross Stevens .of -Blytheville;- Herbert Shippen'of Osceola was elected vice- president and B. P. Brogdon ol Blytheville was elected secretary- treasurer. A film on wildlife at Grassy and Bwan Lakes In southern Arkansas was shown by Tom Mull, educational director of/the Game and Pish Commission. WASHINGTON, Sept. t. </Pl — Capitol Hill newsmen have acted to deny admission to congressional press galleries "at the present time" to any new representatives of the Russian news agency,.Tass. The standing committee of correspondents, elected by their colleagues to govern the press galleries, took the action last night after hearing a complaint from the American Society of Newspaper Editors that Tass Ls "not a bona (Ide news service, but is primarily a propaganda and intelligence agency of the Soviet government." The standing committee's action means that no additional applica- tions for Tass newsmen, even to fill vacancies, will be considered for the time being. The cohimittee took no action on an ASNE request to eject the four Tass representatives accredited now. It delayed a decision to seek advice of the State and Justice Departments and to make an inquiry of Its own. The standing committee made no reference to the case of William N. Oatis, Associated Press correspondent imprisoned by Communist Czechoslovakia on espionage charges which this government has termed baseless.
