PAGE SIX Dam Builders In Idaho Do Successful Job In First Test . BOISE, Ida., Dec. 15. (UP)— A program to use ucaver .(or prevention of damage totaling thousands of dollars annually from floods In Idaho has been pronounced suc- ress.'ul by Oivrti W. Morris, game director. Morris said more than fiOO beaver were transplanted this year from lowlands where Uiey \vcre deemed a nuisance by farmers to highlands where their dams check the spring runoff, prevent floods and conserve water for late sum- STANDARD TIRES PROPORTIONATELY LOW// AT TODAY'S LOW PRICES! .

Tlic beaver were becoming nl- niosl extinct because of Hie ravages of illegal hunting and the clwlruc- tlon of their natural breeding grounds by the white man's civilization. !Jul tii!<ier « conservation program carried on will) the cooperation of tho federal biological survey, soil conservation service and forestry service, Hie beaver population has increased during the lust live years. Pit (man -Robinson act funds made possible the trapping mul ti'niu- plimling of 376 braver last summer in addittun to approximately 150 trapped by regular conservation officers. Tr:i]ippd by Farmers The beavei were trapped alt over tlie stale, H'lierefer farmers re- portcd llicy were a nuisance. -They were planted in tin; O'.vylice, Tar- ghee ami C'hallis forests, 111 tlic jmi'er n'jrhes of inomitiiin .slreiiins. The heaver have built dams, which keep the moisture in the soil RIK! even tiie flow In streams. Creeks which In other years run dry in lute summer still carried a flow this fall, a toon to runners and stock misers. The pools behind the beaver dams serve as excellent breeding pools for llsli and create tood for game fish, Morris .said. The value of beaver Irom the viewpoint o! conservation is SMI) each, when placed In Its proper plnce iii the watershed, Morris said. Idaho has one of tlic largest beaver populations of any state, probably because of its many rivers and small streams, Morris said. They are found generally throughout the state but mostly in the uortlisrn and eastern sections. The heaver were found to be invaluable In North Idaho, where on meadow lartns their dnms hold up sub-soil moisture and provide subsoil irrigation. | This Is the first year beaver transplanting 1ms been carried out, on a large scale in Idaho. Washington, Oregon and Motnnna arc reported carrying on similar experiments. Morris caught, the first live beaver trapped In Idaho in 1031, near Pierce, assisted by Tom Murray and Jess Robinson, conservationists. The beaver conservation program will gain momentum like a snowball rolling down hill. The beaver breed once a year ami have a litter of four or five kittens. When the streams become fully stocked, the surplus can he trapped, pelted and marketed. The pells are worth about $10 encli now. Morris said n project for management of the beaver may be worked out under the Plltmnn- Roblnson act. Protection of the beaver from illegal trapping lias been more successful during the last two years and federal officials believe they have broken up n $1,000,000 illegal beaver fur ring. The., areas where beaver were planted-will -be pnlrolcd against illegal trapping. WE WILL BUY YOUR GOVERNMENT LOAN COTTON George H. McFadden & Bro's. Agency* E. C.

Decorated with growing flowers, plants, and vines, the sun room provides delightful surroundings for entertaining guests and for the enjoyment of tlic family. If immediate plans do not allow for the completion ol thc sun room during the construction of a house under thc Insured Mortgage System of thc Federal Housing Administration, advance planning will save money and insure a more lasting and satisfactory Job when it is feasible to complete the room. Seasonal floor coverings and furniture, available especially for sun rooms, make possible the fullest enjoyment of this type of room during all seasons of the year.

Bedroom Mirrors Effective Treatment colored po.stcl One ?olor Scheme Of Room May Be Affected By Arrangement The need for more bookshelves has been emphasized many times in articles oflerihg advice on the building of new homes or Die modernization of old homes. Various treatments are suggested, some advising the use of one whole wnll of a room for bookshelves while others suggest the lining of both sides of a fireplace with shelves. It is granted that a few books are ornamental and necessary to the creation of a "homey" room, but that endless rows and rows of books, unless they are all similarly bound and in harmonizing colors, should "he road but not seen." Such an extreme use of bookshelves detracts from thc color treatment of the room and in many cases prevents varied furniture arrangements. A modern trend is toward keeping mast ot one's book collection in concealed bookcases instead of having all open bookshelves. In planning a new home to be built under tlie Insured Mortgage System of the Federal Housing Administration, tlic home builder should give careful consideration to the size, style, and placement of bookcases. !n a modern bedroom c mirrors, contrasting with wall panels, may be used, unc interesting combinat}:n fa effected by the setting- of large pink-tinted mirrors flush into walls formed o apple-green insulatitig color panels.
