AH events of the Conservation League Field day planned for nett Sunday at Bancroft will tie carried out as scheduled, but It will now require considerable labor to move traps and stands to the new locations on higher ground.

Lowe, secretary-treasurer, announced Wednesday .afternoon.that committees had gone to the'"toca- tlon that morning and would move everything to higher land. Higher Ground Leased.

Sept. 14—A section of northwest Kossutn in Eagle township was struck Friday evening about 10 p. m. by a small tornado. It started south of Armstrong at the Tom Dale farm where it took part of the roof off the barn. From there it lifted for three or four miles, but lowered again on the H. M. Irmiter farm, northeast, of Armstrong, on the Kossuth-Emmet county Hne. There it tipped over the thres'h- ing machine and wrecked-the shed it was in. It also uprooted a big green cottonwood tree and moved the brooder house several feet. On the Jess Hemphill farm, j across in Kossuth county, -it tore the roof off the barn on the north, side and broke off several trees. The barn on the Henry Schmidt farm had the roof raised, and Hart old Hansen lost some, ten trees on the north side of the grove. Several trees on the Yallee schoolhouse grounds were torn down and the tornado also took out a strip of trees on -the north side of Sain Butcher's farm, wWcn is located in Eagle township. . Congressman Fred C. Gilchrist writes that he hopes to attend the Fled day at Bancroft next Sunday. "I am especially interested in conservation work," he says. "It was partly through my efforts that Union Slough was purchased by the government and made over into a game refuge. I presented the case to the commission in Washington the day that the matter came up and told the commission how interested I was in preserving game resources. "I was a boy in northwest Iowa 55 years ago, and, recollecting my own experiences, I took for a text an old blunderbuss, a boy, and a dog, in my remarks before the commission. After I returned to my office, Ira H. Gabrielson, chief of the Bureau of Biological Survey, called and told me that I had been successful, and that the commission had decided to buy the land. I understand that the commission paid more for It than for any other land bought for such purpose in the entire United States. "While I was presenting this matter that afternoon, members of the committee inquired of me particularly about enforcement of the game laws—if the laws would be enforced if the government took over the land and made it Into a refuge. I assured them that the laws would be enforced, and I called attention to the fact that public sentiment is now with the game laws. "In the old days, 30 or 40 years ago, the old settlers paid little attention to the game laws. The change has been brought about because the public now sees how important It Is that wild .^life-should be preserved.? ; . FOOTBALL BOYS ROUNDING INTO SEASON SHAPE Squad Will Be Ready for Em'burg Next Week Friday. work for the committees, but all available volunteer help will be employed to get everything in readiness before Sunday.
