PRICED ACCORDING TO SIZE Insure Your Child's Feet By Placing Them In Our Hands Material is on the ground at Ventura for the building cf a permanent carp trap. J. Z. Stevens, tate conservation officer said hursday. The sheet metal piling will be attached to the culvert at he Ventura grade. Work is slated to begin as soon is the ice becomes heavy enough o work on. After the fish go into he traps, game fish are released ant' the carp destroyed. The drain- ng of Eagle lake near Britt is under way, Stevens reported with -ome dynamiting being done to iliminate carp. The carp are be- ieved to be in potholes in large numbers, necessitating the dynamite. If this means is not successful some poisoning may be done next spring. Bullheads are the only game fish in the lake and they are to be re-stocked next reason. Seine Nearly Million Pounds State rough fish removal crews seined and trapped 919,822 pounds of rough fish in state lakes last year. Carp made up the bulk of the fish removed, totaling 702,259 pounds. Stevens reminded hunters that the 1948-49 trapping season closes Jan. 10. The season in Iowa has aeen generally poor. Low populations cf muskrat and mink necessitated a short season of 20 days, Dec. 1 to Dec. 20, with 30 counties in southern Iowa closed. Although prices paid for these 2 fur-bearers were lower than the previous year, their value was well above the 10-year average. Fox Hunting Up The 60-day state-wide trapping season from Nov. 10 to Jan. 10 was below average, with the longhaired fur, including badger, skunk, oppossum, spotted skunk, raccoon, weasel, red and grey fox and wolf bringing prices below the 1947-48 season. Higher fox populations, along with a comparatively large number of coyotes, plus good tracking snows are making one of the best hunting seasons for these animals in several years. Still hunting for fox is one of the most exciting of winter sports and is expected to reach its peak in January and early February. Stevens reported a number of schools and clubs in the county have winter bird feeding programs underway. shapes up beautifully in these lovely Lynbrook dresses The first whiff of Spring, and you start seesawing between nostalgia and a zest for action . . . between musing 'over new leaves and walking miles without a coat...

Guard Lands Pigeon Chicago, (/P) — An exhausted pigeon fluttered down on a water intake crib in Lake Michigan 4 miles ,off 'the Chicago shore.

A crash boat plowed the cold choppy water to the crib, picked up the bushed bird and brought it to dry land.

MacPeak's records, were 1 of $300 for obtaining goods by false pretenses, 2 of 5300 each for selling beer to minors and 4 of $300 each for larceny in the nighttime. Thirty persons were fined $300 each for driving while intoxicated, the clerk's records show, and 3 others were fined $500 each on their 2nd convictions of the same charge. One was fined $500 tor illegal possession of liquor and another fined $300. The clerk collected all but $2,600 of the $13,400 assessed. One fine of $500 and 7 of $300 still are on the books.
