Blount has made public foe design of the four postage stamps in the Wildlife Conservation Series. The eight-cent stamps will be issued with first-day ceremonies -June 12 at Avery Island, La. This is in bhe bayou area and is famed as the locale of Longfellow's poem "Evangeline."

The four subjects appear on the same pane. All but the trout are threatened with extinction and increased water pollution endangers 'some of the members of the trout family. Stanley W. Galli, a California artist whose forte is picturing wildlife, designed the stamps. Stamp collectors in a poll of the past designs voted his 1968 wood ducks the best design of that year. The stamps will be printed in three passes through the offset presses and one through the Giori press. With this many passes through the presses, it will be a miracle if there are not some errors in the process. Identification of the modelers and engravers, along with the color detail, will be made at a later date.. Collectors desiring first-day cancellations may send ' self- addressed envelopes, together with remittance to cover the cost of the stamps to be affixed, to the Postmaster, A v e r y Island, La. 70513. Personal checks will not be accepted in payment. The outside envelope should be indorsed "First-Day Covers Conservation Stamps." Orders for covers must not include requests for uncanceled stamps. Cover, requests must be postmarked no later than June 12 ,1971. Envelopes should be addressed as close to the bottom left as possible to allow for the large-sized stamps. Requests for specific stamps will be honored by the U.S. Postal Service. C o l l e c t o r s should remember that there are many combinations of stamps that can be used to make up, numerous sets of covers. ·· the Philippines will issue a ' multicolored four-value series of stamps of the following denominations: 10, 30, 50 and 70 j centimes. This is the last series ' in a tourist attraction. The stamps picture cannon the of Zamboanga ancient Spanish Fort del Pilar, Magellan's Cross at Cebu City; the huge jar at Calambe, Laguna, and the Mayon Volcano in Legaspi, Albay. The cone of this volcano is reputed to be the world's! most perfectly shaped. Little' wonder, since it is an active 1 volcano and keeps working at; improving the shape of its cone ; every day.
