The gold in limited quantities, they were sure of. Only the amount was In question.

Arkansas Game arid Commission has approved Joint federal aid conservation projects calling for an expenditure o[ nearly $300,000 during the next fiscal year, It WRS announced today. , A broader outline of such projects was adopted In anticipation ol a $20,000 increase during Ihe next fiscal period over the $131,000 the jlale received from the fcderr al government last year. Commission Secretary T. A. Mc_- Amls pointed out thai the Increase depends upon two factors: congressional appropriallon and that Arkansas hunting license sales continue on their present high level. ' Six of the nine projects receiving approval already are In effect. The federal government pays t h e largest share under the Pitlma | Hobinson act. The projecti and the amounls alloted are: .

The gross purses of $131,870 has $20,000 set aside for the second place horse, S10.000 for third and $5,000 for the fourth— and last-horse In the field.

Black bass season Is closed in Ar kansas, except Norfolk Lake In Baxter County, during the spawnir period April 15 to May 15. After that lime the fish may be taken, the commission said. A study made during; the first few weeks If Ihe new bass season, it was announced, to determine whether the two-months closed season should remain or be eliminated. The deciding factor will be the effect ot the special open season at Norfolk Lake in Baxter County. Perhaps "after-effects' 'would be a better description, since the fish- cries men will keep tab to see if fishing for bass during the spawning season helped or hindered production. During, the special period, many big fish were caught, and technicians look upon that with favor. They hold that a given amount of water will produce a certain number of fish,-and that for every 10- pounrter taken. there are 10 one- pounders that have a better chance for survival. Nevertheless, careful studies now must lie made on size, growth rate, condition and general effect upon the spawn of the fish now in Norfork. According to Commission Secretary T. A. McAmis, it might be three or four years before we know the real story of this year's Norfork experiment. Philadelphia Boston Chicago Cincinnati . fence stopped.
