What the percentage will be this year, or the identity of the negligent hunters, will not be known until the last lot of reports goes into the tabulating machines about the nriddle of March. While the commission has no way of telling how many of the game-kill reports, submitted on a special self- mailing card attached to every license, are in the hopper, present indications are that a big majority of the sportsmen have compiled with the provisions of the law. The commission, being given no discretion in the matter, will later submit a list of those who fail to cooperate to field officers for attention. 'These reports enable the commission to determine whether the State's game supply is holding up or losing :-ound. Held as Matricide Capitol Limited Hits Machine a; Suterville Michael Kutch Buried.
