CHARLES CITY, Feb. 4.--At a meeting of over 100 livestock producers in the Ellis auditorium at Charles City Thursday, definite plans were made to organize a livestock concentration point at Charles City. Over 300 signatures for the application of membership have already been procured and efforts are being made to increase this number to 1,000 before actual operations start. With 1,000 producers patronizing a re-load association a good volume of business can be done which will provide enough hogs to grade and ship in graded lots. A board of directors was electee at this meeting consisting of H. E Winterink, Dayton Mather, Fred Cerwinske, Fred Freese, Andrew Jundl, M. E. Bent, Allen Andres, John Howe and W. D. Tansett. A meeting of this board will be held soon to elect officers and as soon as 1,000 members are procured, a location will be selected, a manager hired and the concentration point got under way. R. F. O'Donriell manager of the Iowa Livestock Marketing Corporation, addressed the group and pointed out that the eastern Iowa Regional Co-operative has made its membership average of 16 cents a hundred weight more for their hogs than they could have receiver marketing them thru ordinary channels. This is the .average sales over all hogs marketed thru that organization since last October and near 500 decks were handled during the month of January.

Carroll Brackey Given Medal for Being Best Club Member in County LAKE MILLS, March 4.--Carroll Brackey, son of Mr. and *Mrs. Aus- Brackey, has been presented the Thomas E. Wilson medal for being the outstanding livestock club member in Winnebago county. The presentation was made by Cciunty Agent H. C. Aaberg at the Boys' 4-H club banquet. Mr. Aaberg pointed out that Carroll had been a consistent winner in exhibits since 1922. He was champion 'livestock judge in the county in 1929, champion livestock and farm crops judge in 1930, president of the county Boys' 4-fe club in 1930, local president in 1930 and placed ninth in judging at the Dairy Cattle Congress'in competition with more than 300 boys. At the present time Carroll is assisting his father with the work 'on the farm three miles south of Luke Mills. A bit of competition to Carroll is coming right from his own family. His younger brother, a junior in the local high school, has already gained much recognition in 4-H club circles. Marlin has won first place at the county club show for the past three years with his Holstein calves. Waltonians Object to Proposed Fee on Each Game License Members of Cerro Gordo and other chapters of the Izaak Walton league in Iowa especially, and all who are interested in hunting and fishing in this state, are watching the bill which recently passed the house of representatives and calls for a fee of 10 cents from each annual fishing and hunting license of SI to cover the cost of issuance by county recorders. The fish and game department employs at the expense of Iowa sportsmen many game wardens for the enforcement of fish and game laws, local Waltonians pointed out. All fines collected from fish and game law violators in no way benefit the fish and game department and are turned into the school fund. For the year ending June 30, 1930, the fish and game department turned to the school fund $35,059.43. In view of the fact that sportsmen are obliged to stand the expense of law enforcement and as a result of this enforcement contribute liberally to the school fund, they protest the passage of the proposed legislation in the senate. Even under the most favorable conditions the fish and game department is unable to meet the greatly increased demand for additional hatcheries, fish nursery ponds, public shooting grounds anc game refugees and there is an increased sentiment among sportsmen for a higher license in order that the fish and game department may be more adequately financed, it was stated.
