Use of Wild Life Boats Questioned BATON ROUGE (AP) - The legislative Budget Committee has demanded a crackdown on use of Wild Life and Fisheries Commission boats for other than official purposes. Chairman William Cleveland of Crowley, said Tuesday his committee also recommended that the commission get rid of some of the boats it owns. A recently published list of persons who reserved Wild Life and Fisheries Commission boats and resorts showed many were legislators and state officials. The three commission boats, the lists indicated, were used for fishing and pleasure trips. The Legislative Budget Committee, created by the last legislature, has a firm grip on the purse strings of state agencies. The legislature assigned to the committee the duty of checking the detailed spending plans of each state ajency. Cleveland said the committee believed the boats should be used "only for official purposes of the Wild Life and Fisheries Commission." The Wild Life and Fisheries Commission spent $75,879 for stu-' dent labor in the fiscal year 19fil-62, a study of budget information presented the legislative committee showed. The commission budget, approved for the current fiscal year but subject to continued scrutiny, calls for spending $70.000 for stu« dent labor. There were 108 names listed as receiving pay for student iabor. The 'commission's total budget for this fiscal year is $4,776,799, a reduction of $694,038 from actual expenditures during the previous year. L. D. Y o U n g Jr., director of Wild Life and Fisheries, said only some $10,000 of the $70,000 actually goes to student workers. Young said employes paid on an hourly basis also are listed under student workers in the budget summary, and these account for most of the allocated money.

Although the Federal regulations were announced only a week ago there has already been a deafening broadside of criticism levelled at the restrictive season. Some of the criticism is merited; some, we believe, is not. *t. TJ 16 *™^* 1 P°P ular refrain follows the theme that the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service is totally incompetent of administering the waterfowl program. Boiled down', however, the reasoning behind this approach seems to follow the time honored line of "You didn't do what I wanted you to do so you don't know what you re doing." There is no question that Louisiana and other Mississippi Flyway states came out on the short end of the waterfowl hunting. In this state, particularly, hunters find it difficult to understand why the kills should be restricted when they can see millions of ducks and geese along the Gulf Coast. The point that most of them ignore is that Louisiana winters something like 85 per cent of the birds in the Mississippi Flyway, which in turn has a large percentage of the total U. S. population. To argue for longer seasons and larger limits on this basis is tantamount to eating all the steak on tha supper table because the platter happens to be on your end of the table. * * * THE BIGGEST BLUNDER in this year's regulations, we feel, is the ban in Louisiana and Arkansas on the shooting of Canada geese. While most of the big birds spend the winter here, the kill is relatively minor 1 since the bulk of the Canadas winter in areas not accessible to the majority of hunters. The real slaughter takes place in the "Corn Belt" ot Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa and Missouri, where the big geese are knocked down on a production line basis. FWS announced that maximum kill quotas will be established in Wisconsin, Illinois and Missouri but it is a safe bet that even under a quota system the kill will far exceed what it would be in Arkansas and Louisiana. * * * THE OVERWHELMING FAULT, however, lies with the hunters themselves. There is little question that the steadily-declining population requires a full closure for one season to give the birds a chance to recoup. Under constant pressure from hunters and congressmen, however, the FWS has not had the courage to take such action even though it has been supported by a number of states in saying that a closure was needed. Instead, the Federal agency has tried to mollify the public by continuing to grant some semblance of a season but the restrictions involved in that procedure have only resulted in further criticism. Louisiana, in particular, has urged a policy of species management, which would permit greater kills among species which have not shown a decline. The Fish and Wildlife Service has tested this policy in the past, on several species, and will allow Louisiana hunters two scaup this season in another test. The truth is, however, that to most hunters a duck is a duck and if it flies over a blind it gets shot. Hunters who can tell the species apart on the ground usually discard prohibited species so that the effort at conservation usually develops into sheer waste. This year, hunters Will have to Undertake an intensive course in duck identification in order to tell what, they can shoot and what they can't. The enforcement problem on this score will be a major one. It would be a good idea for tlmse hunters who plan to try their luck to obtain a copy of a waterfowl guide and familiarize themselves thoroughly with all legal species. * * * AS STATED EARLIER, the most logical answer would have been a complete closure, with some hope of improvement in the future. The current problem had its start years ago, when the trend was toward long seasons and large limits. The inroads were made at that time and current hunters are paying the penalty. The wisdom of current regulations is dubious, sin«p many hunters, as they did in 1961, will merely make several trips a day and defeat the theory of cutting the kill. Unless a game agent can spend his day watching one individual, this type of Violation is impossible to detect. Hunters, however, demanded a duck season despite the evidence that closure was needed. For what it's worth, they have a season but unless the public viewpoint undergoes radical changes it won't be too many years before waterfowl hunting is permariently closed, —ADAMS.
