About all this will amount to is a soft berth at the public crib for a body of men, probably appointed by political pull from some source The public will be pestered by tnen without any better law enforcement The highway commission will be given another installment of dictatorial powers. The tax payers wi! pay the price. Once this extra police force is established, it will gro\\ and its appetite will grow. Somehow people cannot learn that law enforcement must come from the people up and not from political policemen down. OPEN WINTER HARD ON CAKP Advantage is being taken of this open winter to rid some of the lakes and streams of carp. At Lost Island Lake Frank May of Lansing, who is doing the seining, took out 100,000 pounds of carp in one haul but in two others found only three undesirable fish. He has 12 to 15 men employed. The buyer of the carp plans on making shipment to Milwaukee. He 1ms about 3,000 feet of nets. On the Sholl Rock. A crew of men from Lansing, under the direction of the state fisn and game department, have been in Greene the past week and have been at work taking carp from the river. The men are Pad Volkert, Dolph Inman and H. Carlsen. They made two hauls Sunday. The f i r s t one in the morning was made below the dam, in what is known as Kingery's hole, but instead or getting a bunch of carp the net contained about 300 pounds of catfish. In the afternoon another haul was made in a hole near the Temple farm and here they took out about 6,000 pounds of carp at one time. Their efforts to get out the carp above the dam proved fruitless, as they got only a few Tuesday morning. In the afternoon they made a pull at Marble Rock but only got a few game fish. This morning they will again work at the Temple place and it is expected they will get another big haul.
