December 15, 1976 PACK 12 HAYS DAILY NEWS Hunters Get Mixed Marks Continued From Page One. they've been fairly nice," he said. Johnson farms southeast of Hays. The hunting Incident feared most by farmers Is probably injury to livestock. Wesley Bittle, who farms along the Salina River north of Ellis and Yocemento, said he lost two cows to hunters last year. "I have places along the river I ne«d to graze but can't put cattle on until the hunting season is over," he said. "I think the hunting seasons are too long. It starts with bow season on deer and then you are bombarded with dove, quail, pheasant and rifle season on deer. "A majority of the hunters disobey no-hunting signs and don't ask permission to hunt. I have learned to live with it but 1 don't like it," Bittle said. Mel Schumacher said he did not have many problems with hunters but may close his land to hunters because of problems with motorcycle and four-wheel drive enthusiasts. Schumacher said people with motorcycles and four- wheel drive vehicles have been using his land to practice hill climbing. "Some of the ground is leased and landowners get angry when they come out here and see deep tire tracks and ruts up and down the hills. "Someone in a four-wheel drive ran right up against a cattle feeder and broke it up. A good hunter wouldn't do that, he said. "I don't have anything against hunters but I'm going to have to start keeping everybody out of there. It makes it bad for a good hunter but you can't keep one person out apd let another in," Schumacher said. Schumacher farms northwest of Hays. Marlon Staab said he, too, had problems with motorcycle riders In his pastures. "They go in there to ride their motorcycles and don't bother to close the gate to keep the cattle in. "They also leave their trash lying around," Staab added. Staab said he tried locking the pasture but later found the lock shot off. Hunters, Staab said, usually ask for permission before entering his property and seldom give him any trouble. Bennett said Monday his earlier letter to the Forestry, Fish and Game Commission 'has been misunderstood as a request the season be shortened when he was only suggesting the commission review the length of the season. Bennett said he would respect the commission's decision to make 1 no change in the season length. The governor then suggested the commission consider the possibility of amending statutes to provide that anyone hunting on posted land without permission would be subject to loss of hunting license for a specified period of time. A few discourteous hunters can ruin the farmer hunter relationshp for the majority of good sportsmen, Bennett said. Schmidt Wins Narrow Victory Rhodesian Blacks Won't Share Power GENEVA, Switzerland (UPI) — Black Rhodesian leaders Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo Wednesday said they will refuse to share power with white Rhodesians during the transitional period to black majority rule. Their remarks came one day after the deadlocked Rhodesia conference, marked by weeks of black-white bickering and internal wrangling among black nationalists, was adjourned until about Jan. 17. Mugabe and Nkomo, partners in a "Patriotic Front," told a news conference the black majority in Rhodesia must have full power at once without waiting for legal independence. "Real power, as related to the ministries which control essential processes towards independence, must be in the hands of the liberation movement," they said. "There can be no question of power sharing." Ivor Richard, the British conference chairman, held his own final news conference right after the two black leaders and said he would go to southern Africa after Christmas with a new British formula for an interim government to run Rhodesia in the transitional period. The proposal, worked out during weekend talks between Crosland and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, focuses on the British role during the transitional period, officials said. As the formula would provide a role for the present white minority leaders in Rhodesia as well as having a British commissioner or governor, Richard was asked what he thought about the Mugabe-Nkomd statement. The conference will reconvene, probably in Geneva,, Jan. 17 or later, depending on how long Richards' shuttle lasts. BONN, West Germany (UPI) — Social Democrat Helmut Schmidt won reelection as West German Chancellor Wednesday with just one vote more than needed. The vote by the Bundestag, the populary-elected lower house of parliament, was 250 for Schmidt, 243 against, with one abstention and one invalid vote. He needed 249 for election on the first ballot. Schmidt got the votes of all but two members of his own Social Democratic party and of the Free Democratic party, a liberal group led by Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher. Until the last moment, aides to Schmidt and Genscher had worried that enough of their nominal followers might abstain to deny Schmidt the chancellory. The threat of such a rebellion arose a week ago when Schmidt and Genscher attempted to renege on their election campaign promises to raise, old-age pensions July 1. Schmidt and Genscher saved themselves only by scrapping the plan. Schmidt became Chancellor May 16, 1974, succeeding Willy Brandt, who resigned when a Communist East German spy was discovered on his personal staff. He won reelection just eight days short of his 58th birthday. The chancellor will .outline his policy for the next four years to parliament Thursday morning.

OKLAHOMA CITY (UPI) An extremist group Wednesday threatened to detonate 26 bombs allegedly planted around the city unless the city pays $1 million, police said. An FBI spokesman said an empty shoebox, first thought to be a bomb, was found at a local television station during a search a few hours after the note to Mayor Patience Latting was left at the door of City Hall. Ken Whittaker, in charge of the local FBI office, said the letter writer wanted the money to finance their "anti- capitalism" cause. He said diagrams in the 'letter indicated the explosive allegedly invoved would be about twice the magnitude of dynamite. Whittaker said it was hard to believe the extensive number of bombs mentioned in the letter actually had been planted. Hospital Notes ST.

The letter included drawings of explosive devices. The letter says the explosive devices, about the size of two shoe boxes, had been hidden at unspecified locations throughout the city and could be detonated at intervals during a 26-hour period. It was learned police had two teams of offices with bombsniffing dogs searching likely targets, such as the airport and government buildings. In a briefing with reporters, authorities stressed that flash cameras and tape recorders should not be used near possible bomb sites because the electronic mechanisms were similar to those which could be used to detonate explosives. Authorities said media facilities also are occasionally targets of extremist groups. Officers said citizens band radio transmissions also should be avoided in areas where the bombs might be located. Police said the letter was found at the front door of City Hall when employes arrived for work this morning. Officers said the letter's author was identified through a code name and that the group mentioned in the note was unfamiliar to them. It was identified as the combined Liberation Front. Police said they considered the letter a serious threat. From The Record County Court Bonnie J.
