J. N. Darling of Des lloines, member of the state fish and game commission, termed unjust the criticisms which have been made that North Iowa, though furnishing in licenses a large portion of revenue, ia getting no conservation projects while large lakes are being built in the southern part of the state He gave his reasons for this view in an address Thursday noon at a joint meeting of the Chamber of Commerce and the Kiwanis clubs In Hotel Hanford. "It is true that you have f u r - nished a large portion of license fees," Mr. Darling asserted, "but it is also true that many of the sportsmen from other sections of the state come to North Iowa to buy their licenses. You also get the hunters and they get their room and board in North Iowa." Mr. Darling continued by stating that projects were being established where residents are most hungry tor them and new license returns will be greatest. .In southern Iowa, he said, there never has been any fishing or hunting. No community which does not buy the land for a natural lake will get one, he stated, and said he doubted very much if residents in this territory would donate money to buy land for a lake. "Always Had Everything." "The northern part of the state has always had everything," asserted Mr. Darling. "Now, if someone else is getting something, we hear criticisms. In North Iowa the hunter has felt that if he did not bag his limit, Or the fisherman if he did not catch his limit, the fish and game commission waa to blame." Mr. Darling then went on to show that many conservation projects are being carried on in North Iowa He mentioned hatcheries at lakes' establishment of rearing ponds and erosion control to help trout streams. One hatchery of a kind is sufficient in the state, Mr. Darling said, as the fish produced in this hatchery can easily be transported in large quantities to other sections. Before being placed in streams, however, they should be oeveloped in rearing ponds to a larger size so they will survive Considerable attention was devoted by Mr. Darling in describing some of the features of the 25 year plan of conservation now being carried on in Iowa. He said that for many years people had talked and talked about conservation but no one had done anything. Meanwhile silt filled up streams, cover for wild life was destroyed in the desire for greater crop yields and fish and game continued to disappear. " Plan Was Developed. Between 5300,000 and ?400,000 which had been spent each year in the state seemed to yield no results. With the establishment of a fish and game commission, however, a plan wac developed. Mr Darling emphasized that no member of the commission claimed to be an expert on conservation and that many idea previously held on wild life had been disproved. The best conservation experts were pressed into service and the 25 year program was developed. Mr. Daning toid how a complete survey was made of all resources in the state. It was necessary to start at the foundation: Provide places Tor fish to live, since streams had been filled with silt and sewage and grow cover and protection for wildlife. It has been necessary to keep this program a secret for it has been iOimd that when surveyors considered a piece of land, the price immediately jumped from «25 to $125 an acre. No lake was built where this occurred, he said. "The fish and game commission isn't a Santa Glaus," Mr. Darling explained. Streams Are Reconditioned. _ Reconditioning of streams, by ouildmg jetties and providing water plant life, were described by Mi- Darling. Game wardens are impressed with the fact that theirs is not a policeman's duty, although enforcement of game laws will be sought, but largely that of education, since only by that means can wild life be propagated. Consideration of a farmer's rights was stressed by Mr. Darling, who said that some farmers enjoyed having hunters come. Others, whose lenees- had hcen broken, animals shot and their rights abused, could scarcely be blamed for havin- ill reelings toward hunters. He said that pheasants must depend on the -arnser for cover and that since the farmer mlla t raise the birds through providing natural resources' it seems likely that the farmer will IT? *.?_*!* te .'" ake *»"o "ma" ,,,,, C °' Worl « "elps.

When the conservationists studied the 25 year plan however, they found work which could be done by C. C. C. and presented it, with some fear, jn Washington. President Roosevelt lauded the Iowa delegation as being onu state which had a definite program Harvey King and His Band to Supply Music for Clear Lake Dances Harvey King and his band of bands will supply the music and entertainment features for the dance to be held at the Clear Lake Country club Saturday night of this week, and Sunday night, Dec. 17. There are 10 musicians and entertainers in the group, and Director King will be featured each evening, playing two trumpets. The program presented by Uiis band will Include popular hits and semi-classical numbers, and comedy songs by King's quartet. Manager Walt Ames states that Carey brothers' orchestra will be at the clubhouse Saturday and Sunday nights, Dec. 23, 24, and Bobby Griggs' orchestra hag been booked for the annual Christmas night dance, Monday, Dec. 25. The dance Sunday night, Dec. 24, will atart at 11 p. m. and continue until 4 a. m. Monday. Christmas decorations are being put xip this week at the country club, Mr. Ames states. UNEMPLOYED ARE TO BE USED AS TRAFFIC POLICE Eighteen Men to Take Posts Friday on Principal Intersections. Eighteen men recruited from the ranks of the unemployed will take over the duties of the iron men of the streets until the new traffic si»- nals have been installed, according to B. J. Patton, chief of police Thursday. It is planned to start some of the men to work Friday From six to nine of the main intersections of the ousiness district will be policed, depending- upon the time required for the direction of traffic. If necessary, according to Chief Patton, the intersections will be policed 24 hours a day. The men will work five' hours a day, six days a week. Chief Patton is planning to uniform the men with canvas "Sam Brown" belts and an insignia which can be recognized by pedestrians and drivers of cars The men will be equipped with rubber whistles and will have full authority to act as traffic policemen Caief Patton has requested that pedestrians regard traffic orders as well as drivers and move with the traffic. If pedestrians.will watch the traffic men and move only when the street ia open to them, it will greatly speed up traffic, accordin" to Chief Patton. ° The men will be paid out of Civil Works funds and will be kept on the streets through the Christmas holiday season and as long as necessary until the new automatic traffic system has been installed. Start for Arizona. ORCHARD--Mr. and Mrs. George Hill started by auto for Valentine Ariz., Wednesday afternoon. They will visit their daughter, Mrs. Walter Voorhees, and family for two months. on which work could be done. Twenty-four C. C. C. camps are now at work in Iowa, carrying on erosion control work under the heading of flood control, and thereby helping the conservation cause. Mr. Darling said that a survey made in Iowa and submitted to the U. S. biological service, giving actual statistics on duck breeding, was the only work of its kind and that it is likely that sanctuaries may be purchased in Iowa. E. S. Gage introduced the speaker. Willis G. C. Bagley, president of the Chamber of Commerce, presided at the meeting. Music during the luncheon was furnished by the high school string quintet. PUT STAMPS ON SCRIP, CHAMBER OMMITTEE SAYS Failure to Put Stamps on Doubly Unfair to Those Who Do, Claim. Stamps should be affixed to the Chamber of Commerce scrip at every transaction, otherwise retire- meat of the issue will be delayed, the scrip committee pointed out Thursday. The committees called attention to complaints which have been coming in that some retailers were not using -stamps. "This ia doubly unfair to those who do put the stamps on because it keeps it in circulation just that much longer and brings it back to them just that much longer," a committee statement read. "You are certainly justified in refusing to take Uiis scrip if you have any reason to believe that the person trying to give it to you is seeking to evade his responsibility. Everyone who is taking- it signed a written and binding agreement, under the terms of which he was to require his customer to affix a stamp and you in turn were to require him to affix one. "Hereafter there must be a stamp put on when the purchase is made and the scrip accepted and then one from the store, for jobbers are under ruling from the scrip committee and are not required to accept." OIVILlfORKS FOR PROVIDED Improvement of Grounds and Buildings on Program of Board. Four civil works projects for Mason City schools and school grounds have been approved and work will be started ns soon as possible, according to an announcement made by R. L. James, secretary of the board of education. The work will be in progress until Feb. 15 the secretary said. ' Requiring the work of eight men, the first project concerns the grading and leveling of school grounds, particularly the grounds about the Roosevelt school. The second project entails repairs on buildings, including- the enlargement of the lavatory facilities at Roosevelt stadium, the remodeling of steam lines in the central heating plant and repairing of masonry. This will keep three or four men at work for the eight week period. Painting and redecorating of building interiors is named as the third project and includes work in the gymnasiums, auditoriums, corridors and some classrooms.' Five men will work at this. Architectural planning of building- improveemnts is the fourth project. It calls for plans for a sound-proof band room on the fourth floor of the high school, plans for enlarging the auditorium at Roosevelt school and other work. Some architect who is unemployed at present, will be given this work to do. Class 1'nrty Held. BELMOND--Mrs. W. R.
