'DING' URGES A REAL PROGRAM OP CONSERVATION Says Local Groups Can (Jet Parks, Recreation (Areas if They Will Go After Them With $250,000 of the $500,000 two- year appropriation remaining to be spent next year in some major conservation operation, Jay N. Darlinsr former head of the U. S. biological vey. feels that "here is a splen- chance for local groups to build up sound programs, and get work r.n£ i» u'l essent 'al for not only wild life, but for parks and recreation areas." However, it is up to conservationists to make known their wants, declared Mr. Darling, for "the new governor has committed himself to the promotion of conservation without political interference, and the legisature has always been willing to cooperate with the conservationists." Political officials ace glad to cooperate with conservationist*:, if constituents put forward a suitable P ro £ram, Mr. parling declares. Ding", as he Is familiarly known from his cartoon signature, firmly believes that no change should be made In the present conservation law, either to make It a paid commission or to separate the present commission Into two sections—one for parks, one for flsh and game "The consolidation of the two departments is just beginning to work smoothly, and it ought to be given a fair trial before another change is made, according to Mr. Darling. He writes: "At least two new conservation commissioners will be appointed in the next year, and probably there will be one or two other vacancies. Good conservation commissioners are the heart of the conservation movement, and it is up to the conservationists to see that well-informed, strong men with no selfish political motives are appointed to these positions.

This message is of especial im portance to Kossuth county, for as Mr. Darling said in a talk here last year, the Kossuth Conservation League is rivaled by that of onl' one other county in number of mem bers—Kossuth has about 2000 this year—and activities are numerous In the last year the league has purchased and planted 19,600 seedling trees on county property which the board of supervisors set aside for conservation purposes.
