12, 1967 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N PAGE 27 Bill Quimby CITIZEN OUTDOORS WRITER An Additional Game Bird? The outcome of the .Game and Fish Department's attempt to provide wingshooters with a new large species of upland game depends upon what will happen during the next 30 to 40 days. The Department is trying to introduce white-winged pheasants, natives of Northern Afghanistan and Southern Russia, to Arizona farmlands similar to the birds' native habitat. Chinese ringneck originally brought to this country more than 50 years ago and which are now considered valuable game birds in many states. Because the white-winged pheasant originated in areas with temperature and habitat conditions similar to Arizona's, the Department hopes the Afghanistan transplant will be more successful in establishing itself than the ringneck variety. . There are a lot of ifs connected with the experiment. If the white-wing pheasant can survive predation, and if the Department is right in thinking the new bird can survive Arizona's hot, dry temperatures, the bird, should do well here--it the Department receives cooperation from fanners. Farmers' Help Sought Original birds were stocked in the Arlington and Robbins Butte areas near Gila Bend last year. Recently additional plants were made in the Safford Valley. Now, the Department is asking for help from farmers in these areas. Pheasant nesting is beginning to occur now and will build to a peak during the next few weeks. From these nests and additional plants by the Department will come birds to be counted and studied to find out if the program was successful. It is important that the birds and their nests are not disturbed during the hatching period-the first couple of weeks in June. Burning, discing, or clearing of the fields and brush cover around farmlands will destroy the nests and the young birds. Eventually, it is hoped, limited hunting will be allowed for white-winged pheasants. Right now, the outcome rests in the hands of the less than 50 farmers in the areas in which the first birds were released. Arizona's ringneck pheasant stocking attempt failed many years ago because the eggs of this bird require moist and humid temperature conditions. Hen pheasants turn the eggs at intervals to make certain the entire egg is incubated Unless every part of the incubation process is ideal, a hatch does not occur.

BOWLING ROUNDUP Mixed 5 Eve nt Scheduled By DAVE SPRIGGS Citizen Sports Writer Golden Pin Lanes will hold the first annual Mixed Five Handicap Tournament for three consecutive weekends beginning May 20-21.

Handicap will be figured on the basis of 80 per cent of the difference between total team averages and 1,000; Individuals may bowl on more than one team. However, no team shall use the same five members to enter more than once. The tournament is open to all ABC and WIBC- sanctioned bowlers who are members of the Arizona Association.

That's the date Clay has been ordered to stand trial on a charge of refusing to be inducted into the Army. U. S. Dist. Judge Joe Ingraham set the trial date Thursday, three days after Clay was indicted by a federal grand jury. The indictment came 10 days after Clay, who prefers to be known by his Black Muslim name of Muhammad Ali, refused to take the oath as a draftee. Conviction could bring a fine of $10,000 and a five-year prison sentence. Clay was stripped of his world heavyweight boxing championship following his refusal to be inducted, but he had indicated he planned to continue his fighting career with overseas bouts. gard to class.

May 6. Stewart and the other top late model and hobby stock drivers will be back in action this Saturday night at the Raceway In a big combination projp-am in which several out of town drivers are expected to compete. The Raceway is located at Casa Grande Highway and Drang Grove Road. Starting time is 8:15 P.M. f Arizona's dry climate made the ringneck operation unsuccessful, although a few small flocks of birds managed to hang on through the years. Most of these were m the Yuma and Gila Valleys near Yuma. Within the past 10 years, a change in farming practices has started these remnant flocks to boom because thousands of acres of farmland and desert were converted to citrus groves. Seasonal plowing, discing and harvesting of the field stopped with the coming of the trees. Under each tree is a high section of ground that forms an island when the fields are Sated. It is on these small islands that Yuma's rmgnecks are now nesting. Evidently the combination of shade, cover and irrigation · has produced ideal conditions for reproduction. Yuma residents say ringnecks are numerous around the groves. There is presently no open season on the birds but it could happen that if and when limited white-winged pheasant shooting "is permitted, the Department might allow some harvest of Yuma ringnecks. Because pheasants prefer farmland-type habitat, it has been farming practices-not the gun-that has accounted^for the ma» of Pheasant mortality-in other states. The future S Arizona's two species of pheasant depends upon wise farm practices during the next few weeks. Now!
