The Crow From our early conservation records: "There has been considerable ' discussion the past few years concerning the crow. Some have argued because the crow de- j strays a certain amount of insects, including the white grub, i he should be protected. Others ihave pointed out that on account of the damage he does to bird life he should be destroyed. "After careful consideration of the arguments on both sides, v/e have made quite an exten- i sive investigation of him and | his habits; we rind that the crow does destroy some insects, and when that is said, all of the good qualities of the crow have been told. "To offset these qualities of the crow, we find there is no bird so destructive to other birds. He starts his destruction in the spring as soon as the first eggs -are laid. We have found the eggs from a quail's nest all destroyed, and the shells lying under a near-by fence post. The same thing has happened to prairie chicken nests, ' and practically all song ' birds, also wild ducks. After the young birds are hatched they keep up their destruction by destroying the young, until they are full winged. "No further proof is needed along this line than our trouble Esther Morley returned to Cretston Sunday evening after .spending the week end with her mother, Mrs. Arta Morley and brother, Harley. Mr. and Mrs. Roy Hewitt and children, Lucille Shawler and Margaret Ann, were dinner guests Sunday at the Charlie Hewitt home. Dean Hiley has been doing the chores for Willard Campbell the past few days, due to Willard's illness. He is better at ! this writing. I Hugh Clipson called on W. H. Leach Monday afternoon, with these birds at the State Game Farm, where it requires constant watching to prevent the crows from taking all of the eggs in the open pens, and destroying the young game birds. As soon as we get one bunch of crows killed off, another bunch finds the eggs or birds, and without constant watching with a shotgun we would not be able to raise any birds at all. One day a single crow will find the place; early the next morning he will return with all his relatives and friends. Any man who has made a practical study of both sides of the question would hardly recommend the protection of this bird. "The largest financial loss caused by the crow comes from the fact, that he likes to inhabit hog pastures and pens, and if the facts could be known there is no doubt but that he has caused, millions of dollars' loss to the farmers by spreading hog cholera. "There is some agitation to start a nation-wide move to destroy the crow, and from our experience with him, we are heartly in favor of the move. He is too wise a bird to ever become extinct, but any move to reduce his numbers has our approval in the interest of conservation of useful birds." Taken from the report of the State Game Warden for the biennium ending June 30, 1918. Confiscation of Guns A false impression has crept into the minds of many individuals relative to the confiscation of property, particularly guns, in illegal possession or use by a violator. Illegal devices are not confiscated by the Conservation Officer as many think. The Officer cannot confiscate property under his authority. He may sieze illegal devices to use as evidence at the trial but must turn all guns or illegal devices over to the Magistrate of the Court. The Magistrate is the only one empowered to order confiscated any illegal de- vice used to violate the fish and game laws. The Magistrate, upon having illegal devices siezed by the Conservation Officer, delivered to him, shall docket the proceeding and fix a clay and hour for a hearing and the confiscation. The owner of the property is notified that he may be present and show cause why the device should not be ordered confiscated by the Court. On .said hearing, the Magistrate may order the device confiscated and destroyed or placed at the disposal of the Conservation Director who may either use it or sell the same, depositing the proceeds in the fish and game jDrotection fund.

Many men are not accepted. They cannot qualify. Before those who arc taken on trial can be promoted, they must have proven their merits. In examining recruits for aviation and other specialzied forms of service, most thorough and exacting tests are required. Some of those who have tried have proven true. These principles apply to advertising. Tests are made. Some have tried mimeographed circulars and found them fallen by the wayside. Others have tried folders. These go to the wastebasket. Others have proven that the newspaper—an invited guest in the home—is given most reader consideration. STILL OTHERS have tried and found true a specialized combination of direct mail and newspaper advertising.
