And. together, with (he food information, this may help answer the question: What makes deer move nnd what makes certain areas more sliUblc lor the wily animals?" From 1942 until 1!M5 the game and fish commission purchased all ol ils deer from rnrms in upper Wisconsin. They are all Virginia White Tails. However, during the past three years. Arkansas deer re- lugcji have made outside purchases unnecessary. And. says Commission Secretary T. A. McAmis, "I don't think v.'e will ever again have to depend on outside purchases to maintain our deer population." Bees Make Whoopee But Little Honey MvALLEN, Tex.
