SE July 6,1975 * Hunters, Fishermen Paying Their Own Way More than $700 million has been collected since 1938 from a 10 per cent excise tax on fishing equipment, firearms and ammunition, UJS. Fish and - Wildlife Service director Lynn Green- wait noted recently. . Anybody who buys fishing rods, reels, - creels or lures pays this tax, which goes into fish restoration programs. The same is true of the purchasers of sporting fire- arms and ammunition; these funds go for wildlife restoration. Greenwalt listed how the money is spent: Fifty per cent of this $700 million has gone into habitat improvement, including building dikes to impound duck marshes, constructing watering sites on desert lands for quail and deer, managing forest lands and fencing elk and deer from farmlands. By Skip Johnson the big cats back." added Green Karolyn Kertzman Takes 2-Shot Lead WHEELING, W.Va. (AP) - Karolyn Kertzman survived the pitfalls which be: fell her nearest challenger Saturday, firing a one over-par 73 to take a twostroke lead after two rounds of the Wheeling : LPGA Classic. . Miss Kertzman strung together 15 pars and a single birdie against two bogeys in maintaining her tournament lead. Jan Ferraris, who at one time was eight under par Saturday, ran into considerable trouble on the back nine and finished at two-over-par 74. She is alone in second place at 141. Early Ron of Birdies Miss Ferraris, who started the day five under par, got birdies on 2,4, and 5 to go eight under. But she bogied.7 and make the turn at oneunder-par 35. On the back side, after a birdie at 12, she double birdied 14 and 17 and had a bogey on 16. She moved alone into second place by bir- dying 18. Meanwhile, Miss Kertzman, who also bogied 7 and 9, played par golf on the tricky backside and she, too, birdied 18. Susie McAllister had a 70 Saturday and was one of three golfers at two-under-par 142. The others were Gerda Boykin, who had a 72 Saturday, and Betty Berfeindt, who posted a second consecutive 71. Debbie Austin and Gloria Ehret each fired 73s and are tied four shots behind the leader at 143. At even par 144 were Hollis Stacy and Renee Powell, who each had 71s, and Kathy Postlewait, who had a 73. It appeared in the early going Saturday that Miss Ferraris would make a runaway of the Wheeling Classic. While she was canning birdies on three of the first five holes, four of Miss Kertzman's birdie putts stayed out of the hole. As those putts continued to stay out, she saw Friday one- stroke lead turn into a two-stroke deficit. Steady Round But then Miss Ferraris'troubles began and the steady Miss Kertsman continued her mastery of the 6,050 Speidel Course at Oglebay Park. Scores were generally higher Saturday after an all-out assault on par Friday. Among the casualties on the second day - »ere defending champ Carole Jo Skala, who struggled to a : 75 for a 36-hole score of 147, eight strokes off the lead. Also at 147 was Betsy Cullen, who suffered through a four-over-par round of 76. Lenore Bessera, who.had a 70 Friday, ballooned to an 80 on the second day. .-; WHEELING, W.Va.

Another 20 per cent has been spent buying or leasing land such as prairie duck sloughs, winter big game ranges, bottom lands and desert lands. The money paid by hunters and fishermen has brought more than 54 million acres of such lands. The funds are distributed to the states on the basis of number of license holders, area and population. In fiscal year 1976, for example, $349,817 has been appror- tioned to West Virginia hi wildlife restoration funds, and $108,000 in fish restoration. A lot of people who enjoy the outdoors, including hikers, campers, bird watchers and photographers, have benefitted from these monies, and the time may come when they will help pay the bill. There are straws in the wind that the latter groups will also eventually be paying excise taxes on the equipment they buy, with the money to go into various phases of fish and game restoration. * * * DAN DANTNER, chief of the wildlife resources division of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), would like to see the Carbide Tech Center or any chemical research center develop a safe chemi- cal for spraying plants to discourage rabbits, deer and other wildlife. ''Our game biologists would be happy to work with industry in testing such a product," he said last week. The DNR's primary interest in development of an animal repellant is that it would save a lot of animals that are now shot by farmers and gardeners. * » * ARDEN COGAR of Webster Springs, who has chopped his way to numerous woodchopping championships in the United States and Canada, is also a successful deer hunter. "I get a deer a year, at least," said Cogar recently. "Last year 1 got three." He killed a deer with a bow, killed one during the regular firearms season, and then got one during the special anterless season. * » » THE FIRST picture of a mountain lion's footprint in West Virginia--at least the first in many years--may have been taken by Nelson Green of Williams River Rd. near Cowen. Green sent me a picture of a track he found in May, 1973, about 10 miles up the Middle Fork of Williams River. The picture was quite distinct and it resembled a large cat track. Green said a WVU wildlife professor also said as much. The track was between 4% and 5 inches long."There isn't any doubt in my mind that we hav# DO BOATERS at Suuon and Summersville drive while drinking 0 Frederick Houston of Belle believes so. In a letter to Capt. Lawrence Wyatt. a district conservation officer for the DNR. Houston recounted an incident that happened to him recently at Summersville. While he was towing another boat, said Houston, he was buzzed by a boat that criss-crossed at a high rate of speed, "causing tremendous waves and almost capsizing both of our boats." Houston added that "it seems to me there is an awful lot of drinking while handling of boats on both Sutton and Summersville Reservoirs." Capt. Wyatt and officer Richard Robertson, who patrols Summersville Reservoir, disagree. Wyatt said conservation officers in Nicholas and Braxton Counties haven't reported any unusual amounts of rowdyism at either lake. Robertson pointed out that arrests at Summersville are up this year, including 48 in the past four weekends. "But in all the boats i've checked, I've yet to find one person who was drunk," the officer added. Most of the violations, Robertson added, are for absence of life preservers, creating a wake in a no-wake zone and operating a boat without proper registration. * * · MUSK1E CATCHES in the state dropped off to a handful during May and June because of high and muddy water, with only nine fish registered with the Huskv Musky Club. Largest was a 42V4-inch, 16-pounder caught in Middle Island Creek by Michael Rice of Parkersburg. Other large catches included a 40% incher in Little Kanawha River by Robert Allen of Napier, a 37Vz- incher in Middle Island Creek by Wilber Forrester of Middlebourne and a 35V L-icher in Mud River by Chasey Wilson of Huntington. Bob Miles. DNR fish biologist, said the DNR's muskie stocking program in Ea?i Lynn Lake appears to be a success. The 1.005-acre impoundment in Wayne County was first stocked in 1972 and the fish are now reaching legal size. Miles reported. Fish sampling done at East Lynn this spring by the DNR showed muskies to be verv abundant, he added. LOOK WHO IS HER!

Wall, whose successive fiveunder-par 67s for his first three rounds were his first scores under 70 this year, finished with a 17-under total of 271, one stroke ahead of young Gary McCord, who birdied his last four holes for a final-round 67. Wall, the 51-year-old 1959 Masters champ, pocketed $26,000 with his 14th tour victory. Rod Curl, tied with five others four strokes off the_ pace after three rounds, played his first nine in one-over Saturday but birdied five holes between 12 and 17 for a closing 68 and 273 total. Gibby Gilbert, three strokes behind after three rounds, and Dave Hill finished at 274. Hill shot a 69 and Gilbert a 70. Wall birdied his second and third holes but bogeyed No. 8 as McCord, a second- year pro who ranks 101st on this year's money winnings list, began his charge. Masters and three other tournaments in 1959, but not among the top 100 money winners this year. His last victory, excluding eight triumphs on the Caribbean tour, had been in the Insurance City meet in Hartford, Conn., in 1966. "When it got down to, the wire like that today, I knew a lot of people were making. a run at me," he said. "I haven't been used to that the last few years. It was almost like a new experience, but I felt good inside and believed in my swing." Wall and McCord played in the last threesome, so Wall was fully aware of his young partner's hot streak. "I wasn't surprised Gary made a birdie on that last hole," he said. "I felt he would before his second shot but I wasn't too concerned. I felt I could get down in two putts for a par and I did." Wall, who had said earlier in the week he has been contemplating retiring after 26 years on the tour, wouldn't say his victory had permanently reversed his fortunes. "It is not my character to say this is going to change everything," he said. McCord. one of the six tied at four strokes back after three rounds, made the turn in a four-under 32. A birdie on No. 9 left the 1970 National Collegiate Athletic Association champion from Cal-Riverside one stroke behind and 15-under for the meet. He bogeyed the llth, however, and posted a doublebogey on the par-three, 186- yard 14th hole. McCord then finished with his four birdies, but Wall all but wrapped up the victory with a bird on No. 16. Wall played the last two holes in par. The tournament attracted only two of the current 25 leading money winners-Miller Barber and U.S. Open champion Lou Graham--because of next week's British Open. Barber, first-day leader with a 65 over the 7,010-yard Tuckaway Country Club course, finished with a 70 and a 279 total. Graham failed to make the · cut Curl, one of the few pros planning to go to Britain after playing here, said he would have cancelled his travel plans had it not been for his Tine finishing round. "It's a great, jrett feeling.

It was a dollars-and-cents revolt against an unfair economic situation. People were fed up with the Stamp Act, Tea Act, all the high prices. So. they did something about it. That was the true beginning of the American Revolution. It was later that the intellectuals, philosophers, and soldiers joined in. The Revolution of 1776 began as a pocketbook revolt in 1775.'Lowe's salutes the Spirit of 75, as history repeats itself. Now, stamps are more expensive than ever... tea and other food items are at an all-time high... and people are doing something about it. They're being more demanding in the products they buy and the prices they pay. So, if you agree that part of the Spirit of 1975 is a quest for lower prices and better values, Lowe's is with you! We don't sell stamps or tea bags, but we do sell over 7,500 other items people need, at prices they like.
