Wesley. Private sales up MADISON (AP) A new law has increased the private sales of used cars in Wisconsin, an industry group said Tuesday. Increasing numbers of private citizens are selling cars to other private citizens because of a law requiring used car dealers to inspect and fill out disclosure statements regarding an auto's condition. according to the Wisconsin Automobile and Truck Dealers Association. "There is less safety now than there ever was," said Gary Williams, association president.

Williams said about half a million used cars will be sold privately in Wisconsin in 1978. State figures show that three of every five used car transfers is done privately, he said. He added the association would prefer a law requiring periodic inspection of all vehicles, and not just inspection by used car dealers. He said individuals are selling their cars privately with no inspection required rather than to a dealer or on a trade-in with a dealer who will inspect it. The result, he said, is that many vehicles on Wisconsin roads are quietly deteriorating to less than safe conditions because they are never inspected.

MILWAUKEE (AP) Wisconsin resource managers entered the stamp business in a big way this year, and they say the state's sportsmen so far have generally proven to be willing collectors.

The state added both trout fishing and waterfowl hunting stamp programs, with resulting revenue from the respective stamps earmarked specifically for developing habitat for trout in the state's inland waters and for waterfowl. Trout fishermen and waterfowl hunters are now required to purchase stamps, in addition to paying the usual license fees and buying the required national waterfowl stamp. As of August, sales of the trout stamps, which cost $2.50 each, had brought in about $274,000 for use in improving trout streams on public lands in the state, according to Stan Kmiotek of the Department of Natural Resources. The amount, more than doubling the $200,000 a year the state has been spending on such projects, was about in line with predictions of the revenue during the first year of trout stamp sales, he said. Kmiotek said 15 improvement projects using the revenue had been approved, and applications for others were still pending.

The projects range in cost from a few thousand dollars to $25,000, depending on the type of work and length of stream. While the stamp money cannot be used to hire additional permanent personnel, limited term employees can be hired. Volunteers from sportsmen's groups have provided some of the manpower, as has a state-operated Youth Conservation Camp program. The work includes installing fences to keep cattle away from stream banks, improving channels to provide faster stream flow, clearing downed trees and other debris from channels and placing special log structures to provide cover for trout. With the emphasis on habitat development, the projects should help preserve the state's streams with naturally-reproducing trout populations, while also improving stocked streams, said Jim Addis, director of the DNR's Bureau of Fish Management.

"It's taking a stream with good natural reproduction and attempting to use the stream as sort of a natural hatchery," Addis said. Meanwhile, the DNR is anticipating selling about 130,000 of the waterfowl stamps to hunters at a price of $3.25 each this fall. The price includes 25 cents for whoever issues the stamp, $1 for wetlands habitat development projects in Canada and $2 for such work in Wisconsin. Resource officials say the tight limits on use of stamp revenue helped gain support of sportsmen for the programs. The DNR explained that the waterfowl stamp revenue will help complement federal duck stamp funds that can be used to buy wetland and upland Production Areas' but cannot be used for management of the areas.

Revenue from the state stamp "will be put to work refurbishing and maintaining waterfowl habitat in Wisconsin and on the neighboring Canadian breeding grounds" where many of the migratory waterfowl passing through the state originate, the DNR said. Major activities are to include "developing water impoundments, establishing nesting cover, and territorial pond site construction to waterfowl breeding densities." The DNR said the state stamp program also makes the state eligible for certain matching federal funds to develop Waterfowl Production Areas. Donald Till, of the DNR's Milwaukee area district, said the response of sportsmen to the stamps, especially the trout stamp, "has been fairly good, seeing that the money goes for habitat improvements. I haven't heard any 'sour grapes' about it." The stamp programs might have an advantage over those in other states because resource officials were able to choose two native artists of national prominence to provide illustrations for the first stamps. The waterfowl stamp, showing: wood duck, was done by famed wildlife artist Owen Gromme of Briggsville, a past winner of the U.S.

Fish and Wildlife Service's national waterfowl stamp contest. Another past winner of that contest, Milwaukee area artist Martin Murk, provided the painting of the native brook trout for the state's first trout stamp. Contests will be held to choose illustrations for future stamps. Legal action for pi plumbing code violations possible The city may have to take legal action against major violators of local plumbing codes, Plumbing Inspector Harlan Clements told the Board of Public Works Tuesday night. Clements said he is currently checking what he termed "the large volume violators," and said the city "would have to take legal action if "Are the major offenders OK?" Alderman Robert Heiting asked.

"I haven't gotten around to following them all up yet," Clements responded. "We haven't had the time. The No. 1 priority is the big volume violators.
