FiUDAY. -MAKCH L i , PRESIDENT ENDORSES OF NATIONAL WILDLIffE WEEK NEW YORK, Mar7l7.--The National Wildlife Week, March 19 to 25, finds conservationists of the United States organized on a national front lor ttic iiibt lima in history, according to Carl D. Shoemaker, executive secretary ol '.he National \Vildhfe Federation. "Wildhtc Week," .sajs Mr. Shoemaker, "will be observed in every state by oigamzattons of sportsmen, farmers, business men, club women and youth, including the Izaak Walton League, Gc-rden Clubs, Junior Chambers of Commerce, Gump Fne GiiOs, 4-H clubs. In schools and churches, and in the press and over the air, the necessity for united action on behalf of natural resources will be accented." The major activity of the National Wildlife Federation in connection with Wildlife Week is the distribution of Wildlife stamps, a series of 80 Uee, flower, mammal, fish and bird subjects, painted by outstanding nature artists. The first Wildlife Week was proclaimed by President Boosevelt. jri 1938. In endorsing Wild'ite Week this year, the President issued a btalement in which he said: "The National Wildlife Federation has helped greatly in furthering conservation programs, both fedeial and state. It has supported the enactment of constructive legislation and it has contubuted greallj' in the arousing of public interest. "The first American Wildlife Conference, held three years ago, gave needed emphasis to the important part which wildlife plays in promoting the national well being. That conference was successful, not only in bringing about'sound policies dealing with all phases of wildlife administration, but also because it led to the formation of the National Wildlife Federation. "The Fedeiation owes its existence to the general recognition of the fact that more is needed than a meic statement of policies and programs, for, however good these may be, they are unavailing unless directed and energized by the direct application ol organued human effort." The fust set of Wildlife Week poster stamps was agnn accepted b President Rooseve'lt, Minor Hudson, National Director of the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce, making the presentation in Washington.

IIAHRISBURG, Mar. 17.--The Ed-' monds bill designed to "remove some ol the teeth" from the Teacher Tenure Ac'- oC 1937 hci; undergone sumo 'toning down," indicating today that ichool employes have made some progress in tni*u* f-fiorts to fk j OV. tht* proposal. Major change in the bill as it came from Senate committee Wednesday and was given init al reading removed the provision that marriage of a woman teacher would be grounds for dismissal. This part of the bill, introduced by Sonatoi Franklin Spencer Edmonds, R., Montgomety, at the icquest of the Stale Association o£ School Ducctors, had drawn the most criticism from the Pennsylvania State Education Association and other teacher gioups, Oiner amendment? inserted in the bill by IV-e Senate Education Committee, headed by Senator Ficdurick L. Homier, R , Lancaster, dealt with the probationary period for teachers and the method o£ appeal from school board rulings on tcnuie. The bill was changed to pionde a two-year probationary period befoie tiie tenuie provisions would apply in fust and second class districts and a one-year probationary pcnod in third and fourth class district?. As introduced, the bill provided a two-year period for all districts. The section wh.ch made marriage of a woman teacher legal cause for dismissal was changed by the committee to permit a manied woman to continue her classes, it able to attend to duties nrop-''ly. Opponents o£ the Edmonds b 13 contend that the probationary period provision and added causes for dis- SbUl, ntidc Ii.om mauiuge, would make the tenure ac.1 practically inoperative. School e nploycs would attain, a profe-sronal status and pio- teclion of tne Inu after the proba- lionaiy pei lod has LJccn scivcd. No contracts wou'd bu icquiicd until the professional hiatus ,4 attained. Employment of substitute teachers lacking professional status would be permitted and they would be dis- riissed at will when not needed. As reported from coir mi t tec for floor consideration the Edmonds bill provided thee additional legal causes for dismissal; 1. Persistent negligence, instead of "wilful find pcisKStnnt negligence," as at prebL-nt. 2. Substantial decrease in the numbcj of pupils or "whenever it becomes ncccssciry in the opinion of the school directory to eliminate courses in the curriculum.'' 3. Insuboidin.ition or covdutt un- bccom n£ ^ professional crip.oyu Secretary Leo C. Muncty, D , Lu- ZL-ine. who sponsored :hc 19:j7 ad., said tod ly hu was not satisfied with the EtmendmurU to the Edmonds bill, and md.caled he would seek furthei changes. He admitted some montns ago that the aci which withstood a Supreme Cmut test on constitutionality, needed some "toning down." Senator Uornsfie. send the bill would be recommitted after second reading next week for a public hearing in two or three weeks. "Miss 10th Avenue Ofld Lot Trading.
