Algona, la., March 19 — The farmers and rportsmen in this part of Iowa are playing on the same team this week. The farmers told the Iowa conservation department that there were far too many pheasants in the fields for the good of the 1943 corn crop, so the conservation department decreed a special open seasson on the ringnecks from March 15 to March 22 in the north central part of the state. The sportsmen gave three cheers, loaded up their guns and since Monday have been banging away at the crafty pheasants. It's the first early spring pheasant season that this s,tate ever has known. Although the weather hasn't been conducive to perfect hunting the sportsmen have been doing a lot of hiking through this part of the corn belt to get their limits of five birds per day and thus extend a hand to the farmers who don't want hundreds of ringnecks in their fields when the new corn is sprouting later in the season. Hunt Near Lone Rock. On our first sweep through the pheasant country today with J. D. Lowe, a member of the Iowa conservation commission, and a group of sportsmen from the Kossuth County Conservation club, we. visited a field of unpicked standing corn near the town of Lone Rock. The farmer who owns this field was delighted to see our party stage an offensive against the big concentration of ringnecks in it for the birds have eaten many a bushel of corn this winter. Pheasants were in this field of 30 acres by the hundreds. The program called for a drive throug the corn by six or seven of the members of the party with others standing at the end of the field behind a high bank on the side of the drainage ditch. The setup was ideal for jump shooting the birds as they flushed and also for pass shooting from positions behind this bank. The birds were extremely wary. They came down wind high over the ditch bank to give us some of the sportiest shots we've ever had at ringnecks. As birds which were shot dropped behind us in the field one of the Iowa boys sent out his yellow Labrador to retrieve them. Many Birds Escape. Among the group of hunters lined up along the ditch bank today for their first shots at the speedy pheasants with a March wind behind them were two hunters from Chicago area, George Petty Sr., and George Petty Jr., of Northfield. Iowa is permitting hunters to take five pheasants a day, of which two may be hens. The possession limit is 10 birds including four hens. Although the farmers who have been complaining about the large number of birds on their land will see some of these flocks reduced this week, there should be plenty left for breeding stock this spring. It's not as easy to bag birds now as it was last fall because the cover is thin, the pheasants are wild and the birds sprint out of danger even faster in March on the frozen ground than they do in the fall. SUPREME COURT HOLDS LEASING STATUTE VALID Among 14th judicial district lawyers there was considerable interest in the reversal a week ago by the state supreme court of a decision by Judge Davidson in a Kossuth county case. A few years ago the legislature passed a law requiring the owners of a leased farm to notify the tenant by November 1 if the lease was riot to be renewed for the following year. In this county a case arose in which Arthur, Clifton, Gilbert, and HolII* BeB.Siai'.'i*sf, owners of a 154-acre tarrn, had failed to give such notice to Kathryn Hakes, the tenant. The tenant refused to vacate, and proceedings were brought to evict her. Judge Davidson held for the Ben- schoters, declaring that the law was invalid. The case was appealed, and now the supreme mii-iT^ holds the law valid °" rt . s M preme court was n the decision, for tht vided 6-3. The majority dochi™, the law'si validity,& owners of farms which nr will henceforth have to Iti • -*—.
