Cooper Writes About- Wild Life Meet Impressions aber Backs Big Navy, Strikes at I). S. Turmoil By Robert S. Cooper. Fnycttc County Chlarman of Wild Life Restoration Week. With your permission I wish to describe, through your newspaper, some impressions formed while ut- .ending the Third North American Wild Life Conference in Baltimore February 14. Never in the history of the United States has such an assemblage been effected under a wildlife banner. Representatives were present from all parts of the United States, Mexico and Canada. This conference was sponsored by the Wild Life Institute of America in the interest of the General Wildlife Federation. What was accomplished at this conference should Interest every American citizen nnd conservation club in America. All other conservation cflorts fade in significance when compared with the work and objective of this conference. There, I saw senators and representatives in Congress resolutely working shoulder to shoulder with men of various walks of life for improvements in wild life conservation; everyone, without regard to special interests, engaged in a program based upon principles which all sportsmen approve. Herein, the wild life enthusiast took common ground with the naturalist; the naturalist with the farmer; the farmer with the forester and the fores'er with the fish culturist and conservator of water. All joined in n fight to defeat the forces of destruction. It was most forcibly brought out what became of the Federal Govern- ment plans which were approved by J. N. Darling, head of the Bureau of Biological Survey at the time those plans were completed. This was a proposed project by the Federal Government to improve the \yaterways throughout the United ^tates v in the interest of flood con- rol, hydroelectric power and the levelopment and restoration of fish life. During the conference it was shown how* completely this plan failed due to the/ misappropriation By United Frew. ITHACA, N.

It was pleasing to note the prominent part taken by two Pennsylvania conservationists during the conference. Judge Grovcr C. Lad- ncr of Philadelphia, president of the Pennsylvania Federation of Sportsmen's Clubs, an organization representing approximately 350,000 sportsmen voters of Pennsylvania, and Kenneth A. Reid, general manager of the Izaak Walton League of America. The representatives of the various sportsmen's clubs were working as one man in the interest of wild life. Club identification had no meaning in this conference, which at times docs cause friction In local communities. The federation is a coordinating and servicing organization, concerning Itself with the problems of wild life restoration on the North American continent. It recognizes the crisis that exists in this regard and its purpose is to do all It can to sec that future generations have their You can't beat these suits and topcoats for style, quality or tailored appearance! $19-50 up to $42'°° MEN'S DEPARTMENT CONTINENTAL STORE Young or old, hero Is the wearing ap- pcrel that pots yon in the front ranks of well dressed men . . . whether you're in school or In business.

Five Stewart Pupils Attend Listen School, Lack Tuition, However Fivc Stewart township pupils are attending the Liston school in Dunbar township without paying tuition, it was revealed Monday night nt the meeting of the Dunbar Township Board of Education. Superintendent R. K. Smith informed the directorate that the Liston school was the nearest for the children of the adjoining township to attend and that even though Stewart township had refused, he said, to pay tuition the youngsters were not turned out. There are but 16 Dunbar township pupils in the school nnd because of the small number there has been no reason to keep the oth- ers frbm going there. Wnen it was brought out that North Union township pupils were attending high school at Leisenrmg No, 1 without paying tuition, the superintendent explained that Dunbar township elementary pupils were attending classes in the adjoining township without paying tuition, adding that when an effort was made to collect tuition from North Union a reciprocal agreement was worked out.
