URGE PROTECTION' OF GAME SUPPLY Conference Points Out Keujjr«* to Wild Life. ' ·· __*__^_ New York.--Several hundred authorities OD the I kinds and ways ol four-footed nn winged gnin» and allied! subjects gathered at thej recent meeting of the Sixteenth American CJame conference here. Tin* results of Investigations and eWorvatloBH on the wild life of forests, fielrjs and streams were presented to tho conference. ' * Seth 13. Gordon, former o.secutlve secretary of the Pennsylvania game commission, repoi*ted tout (here are 7,500,000 llcenued hunters In the United States. Those sport-mien, he stated, annually spend not less than 5*50,000,000 for firearms, ammunition, equipment, guides, transportation and other incidental .Items. Hunting licenses cost gunners another $10,000,000. Approximately 25,000,000 acres of land have hean set aside for wild life refuges, Mr. Gordon stated. , The urgent nped for thei extension of protected game areas aud public hunting grounds was madu apparent when Aldo Leopold, who Is directing a national game survey, pointed out that 100,000.000 acres of laud to the central states have been Bhrittn of the required winter cover for quail, pheasants, prnlrle chickens, Hungarian partridges, rabbits and oitlier game In the states referred to, as En others, intensive and modern farming practices bare operated to the detriment of furred and feathered gime. "'.The posted land prohle n is DOW a ser'ous factor In huif of the states of the Union, and Is becoming more difficult every year," an authority' asserted. Datn on the subject from S3 states was summarized. Twenty-one states reported that 33 1-3 per cent of all privately owned land nlthla their boundaries Is now posted against hunters, and the practice ig growing at an alarming rate. · George D. Pra|t, pro»ld nt of the American Forestry association, pointed to the fact that "therp are three phases of outdoor life flfhlch are very closely related--forests, arae and recreation. Without the forests many specimens of game could not exist, and unless the patne animals are In thf! forests, thousands of people would feel no Incentive tn go there. The nngler finds relief fror i the grind of every-day t h i n g when hi enters the woods to fish, but unless rtsb are In tha streams he Js unlikely to go. In other words, our forests io *e much of their attractiveness and usefulness when they are without the presence of wild life." Although the conscnstr of thosa participating Its the Araeiican Game conference was that any community that wants game may hir e it. there was no Inclination to side'tep the obvious tact that game authorities must have the unstinted supp irt of nil sportsmen If conditions ar'» to be Improved or even maintained. ARMY GOES FORWARD Secretary Orders Infantry Battalion Experiment. Washington.--Modernization of thcj American army, through the tntrodncf tlon of greater fli-e power, mobility and capacity for sustained effort otj the battle front Into the Infantry coin- bat arm, was moved a step nearer fulfillment by Secietnry of Win- Patrick J. Huriey. On tin) recommendation of Gen. Charles P. Summerall, chief of staff, thf» war secretary Issued orders call- ins for the oriranlaatloa at once of an experimental Infantry battalion with sufficient additional automatic weapons to double the flre power of the present Infpn'try unit of this size. Mora Automatic Weapon*. The new Infantry battalion wilt give the army the most compact, powerful and independent combat unit IB the history of tha American military establishment It will have 25 per cent more men than tha present organization, twice as many automatic rifles, twice at many S0-ca!lber machine guns, and four 50-cnllber machine guna, for use against attacking aircraft nnd tanks, and Introduce two 37-mIll)meter guns end two 75-ru!lll- meter mortars Into tho Infantry unit. The mortars and 37-millimeter guna, formerly a part of the equipment of tho old regimental howitzer company, are added to tha armament of the battalion headquarters company. Tho experimental battalion, composed of 1,178 men. will be armed with a total of 6K! rifles, 108 automatic rifles, 24 SO-caliber machine guns, four !H)-ca!!bor machine guna, two 87-ml!ll- meter guas, ona-poundors, nnd two 75- tnillliueter mortars. The present organization has 544 rifles and 12 SO-cal- Iber machine guns. Tho regimental howitsser company, which Is armed with the ST-mllllmeter mortars, would be abolished If the new esperlrnfnta) organization were adopted as standard for the army. Worid War Equipment Still Usad. The step talrea by Secretary Hurley recently murk 3 probably the greatest stride the War department hna taken toward bringing the nnny up to dute. The nnny at present Is equipped with World war equipment, although Its i/tescrit Infantry organization Is the result of two years' study mode by n i special board Immediately after the war. The new orgnnfratlon h de?}s»pd to give the basic I n f a n t r y combat unit greater fire pjwer and more mobility without Increasing Us vulnerability. Whether ths, new organization w411 b« found satif factory la Btlll to be determined. It ts certain, however, that r-Jiangea of some kind will be made. United States Standing Army Has Only 137,529 Washington.--The total number of enlisted timn in the regul if army today would seiirccly provHe adequate kitchen police details for t h e National army of IQIT-'IS-'IO, the annual report of M«J Gen O.

Jrldge«, the adjntuut general, disclosed The grand total of offlc rg and men as set down by Bridges Is 157.629 and In addition there ara ibout 3,000 nurses, contract surgeon- and West Point cadets. Contrary tc general belief. West Point does not supply tho greatest number of oftl cn\ to the army. Of the 12,175 comi lissloned officers only 3,757 enterei the army from West Point. The number obtained frotn civil life was 3,372 There are In the arm · now 1,072 officers who rose from the rankii, 2,229 who were appointed -from the officei^ 1 reserve corps and 208 wl u were commissioned directly from he N i t l o n u l Guard.

Tho hog proceeded to gather all of the weeds and brush In the pen nnd place them in t pile, then took refuge on top of the pile of wetds and brush and escaped the water.
