Business Depression Blamed for Much Waste Of Wildlife Resources WASHINGTON,. Jan. 12--The tenacity of modern -business depressions is attributed to the waste of wildlife resources in an editorial in the current issup of American Wildlife, oF*cial publication of the American Wildlife Institute. _ "Go .West, young man, were wise words when Horace Greeley uttered them at a time when a business de- presssion was making it particularly difficult to eke out a living in the thickly populated East," but Mr. Grcclcy wouldn't, have spoken them today,*' comments the magazine. "When the noted publisher advised our youth to follow the sun, / the West was, for the most part, a s virgin paradise of fertile plant and animal life. A living could be had there for the mere- hard work of wresting it from the strong crasp of nature." "Today, for the most part, the West is just as industrialized--in some instances as thickly populated--as the East. Such good land as isn't given over to cities is already used for crop production, just as is the country land of the East." '"We have now come to the end of our"frontiers. We must sit down where wo are and live and cat--for ' how many thousands of years is only a question of your ability to imagine. So here we sit, with an undeveloped lands to act as sn escape valve for humanity plagued by depressions of economic origin. It is only through a concerted plan of conservation and restoration that our wasted natural resources can be rebuilt, our frontiers restored as havens of refuge from man-made want. It is the duty- of us, the living, to restore as much as -possible of our great outdoors that our children's children may find relief from the bitter punishment inflicted by cyclic V business depressions."

We like to cut Transient Camp Buildings Revert To Guiler Heirs Recent abandonment of the White Oak transient camp near Connellsville has dumped into the laps of the owners of the tract all the buildings constiuctcd on the site by former relief woikers given assistance by the now abolished State bureau. The acreage on which the 11 buildings were erected after the camp opened on July 3, 1930, is owned by the J. A. Guiler estate, in charge of Karl K. Kramer of Connellsvillc. According to the agreement entered into between the Government and the estate, a five year lease was granted the Government agency, with an option of an additional five years. Thirty days' notice was required if the lease were to be terminated. A special feature of the agreement was that if the Government closed the camp, all the buildings would revert to the property owner and through these terms the estate took possession of the fine buildings of wood construction. The lease specified that the contents of the buildings would be retained by the relief agency, but the fixtures and other apparatus in the buildings remained intact.
