PA - THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVILLE, PA. WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 12, 193S. Basketball Basketball JO1IS II. WHORIO Sports Editor . FARM-GAME REFUGE PLAN ~-\ Hurdrcds of acres of land in Fayette, Westmoreland and Somerset counties arc being obtained for the form-game refuge program that was adopted about 18 months ago" byjtfae. State Game Commission.- Only roi. cently 5,237.2 acres "were enrolled In the Fay-West area. ~ Under the setup, the commission leases hunting ^ privileges _ from farmers and in turn_ assures ^Keni of protection from hunters who -are forbidden to fire within a 150-y_ard jSidius from all buildings,, Better, stocking conditions 'are -experienced and game becomes"more plentifuLas » result. r,Thc-.commission through this cooperative "plan makes available more acreage for hunting while it protects the property-owner, from. loss ax thc"ha'nds of careless "or wilful nimrods in that the legislation governing the program carries "teeth." It has long been apparent to the commission'that in agricultural sections something more is necessary than stocking large quantities of game, enforcement ot icstrictive laws, control of predators, creation of game refuges and educational efforts. "Here the human clement enters into thp picture to a much greater extent than is_truo~m _forest territory," the Pennsylvania "Game-News stated. "In fact the human clement seems to be the outstanding factor to be dealt "with, .in agricultural sections. Sportsmen want-a -place to Bunt, and something to shoot, and in this connection some hunters, not true sportsmen, appear to have a peculiar complex toward farmers their property and their rights and wishes. The logical reaction of farmers is to keep the rank and Me of hunters off of their property by posting against trespass." The commission recognized a moral obligation to do all in its power to protect farmers and farm property from thoughtless or wilful misdeeds of hunters. It also considered the fact that intensively tilled farms can support a mucn larger crop of game than at present if proper game management practices are conducted. Onl a small part of the acreage included within an area called a farm-gome refuge project is sci apart for^game refuges. The major portion is open to lawful hunting by the public. The commission sets forth it do--n't claim the plan to be a pan- accT for all ills affecting the man- ag-menl of farm-game. The plan is on experiment and may prove impractical or perhaps not satisfying I to e thcr farmers or sportsmen or its cost may exceed that which is justified in expending for results obtained A trial of two or three years Is contemplated · For project No. 20 in the county 6052 acres wero obtained while 2,478 5 were leased in Wcslmorc- / land and Fayette counties with the Jacobs Creek Oil Company turning over 2,000 for No. 21. There were 529 acres in No. 35 and 880 for No 33 in Faycttc and 361 for No. 28 and 383.5 for No. 24 In Westmoreland and 765.5 acres for No. 22 In Washington county. Harold D. Carroll of Dunbar, game land technician of the commission, will go to Pittsburgh on Thursday for a meeting of the Allegheny County Sportsmen's League in connection with the move of the group to blanket Allegheny county with the farm-game project movement.
