The Upper Des Moiaea-EepubUcan, December 5, 1930 DISCUSS WAYS TO CONSERVE GAME Wild Life Conservationists, Scientists, Sportsmen and Officials in Discussion. TO OUTWIT WILD GAME ENEMIES. Sportsmen and Farmers Cooperate lii Experiment to Regulate Amount of Hunting in Limited Area. Des Moines Register: Plans'for out- Witting enemies of wild game which is in retreat before flivver-invested roads and tractor-driven progress across the woods and fields of America, were debated Monday at the seventeenth American game conference. Wild life conservationists, scientists, sportsmen and government officials Joined in discussions which will lead to the framing today of a national game policy in which the aid of farmers will be enlisted. "In Difficult Stage." "Game conservation is in a particularly difficult stage of Its development," declared Aldo Leopold, of Madison, Wisconsin, chairman of the wild life policy committee of the conference, [i i«H| "The ideas which ruled while there was a virgin game supply appear to have reached the limit of their effectiveness. Something must be done. Nearly all of us are agreed what it is, but there are differences of opinion about who should do it, what methods should be used and who should pay for it" Experiment Described. A practical experiment in cooperation between sportsmen and the farmers on whose lands they hunt was described by Seth E. Gordon of Chicago, conservation director of the Izaak Walton League of America. In Williamson township, Inghan county, Michigan, he said 160,000 acres on 200 farms have been pooled for the regulation of hunting. Each farmer distributes four tickets a day, permitting 800 men to hunt in the area on each of the seven days of the pheasant season.

Des Moines Register: Burlington.— A strike involving operators and musicians in theaters in nine Iowa cities Tuesday followed a walkout of employ- irs of the Rialto and Palace theaters here late Monday night. Musicians in the Rialto theater here claimed that the Central States Theater Corporation, which controls p)ay- louses in Mason City, Clinton, Albia, Chariton, Fort Dodge, Boone, Iowa Ity, Centerville and Burlington, had violated its contract with them. The Rialto players maintained that they had made an agreement with the corporation when they were employee at the original Rialto, which recently burned. The corporation then too!' over the Grand theater, devoted to legitimate plays, converted it Into cinema theater for showing sound pictures, and renamed it the Rialto. The striking musicians claimed that they were not employed in the second Rialto and that their original contract should still stand. Officials of the company, including A. H. Blank of Des Moines, president, and H. M. Winberg of Burlington, manger, could not be reached for statements. Council Bluffs.—The walkout of two more operators at the Broadway theater Tuesday caused the manager, Robert Fulton, to close the_doors at noon. Fulton would not malie any predictions other than to say: "It is a matter of union arbitration now. The unions wanted excess help back stage."

Upper-Des Moines Republican Des Moines Register: Postmaster General Brown's prescription for that old aggravation—the postal deficit— is to charge a half cent more to deliver letters now mailed outside the locality for two cents. Appalled by the $58,779,000 by which the department found itself behind for! the year ended last June, he spoke out Tuesday to President Hoover in his annual report. "Only Practical Remedy." The recommendation was for a cents per ounce rate for first class mail of a non-local destination, while the two cent rate would remain in effect for local deliveries. This "only practical" remedy, under the legislation proposed, would go into effect next April 1. Last year's receipts reached $705,484,000. Despite that tremendous total, the deficit exceeded that of 1929 by $1,913,000. Estimates Increase. "The department should conduct its postal operations without a financial loss," Brown said. He estimated the increase would boost income $55,000,000 annually; and recommended nominal revision of fees for money orders, insured and registered classes of mail to net an additional $8,000,000 yearly. Postcard rates would remain as at present. The postmaster general also termed leasing of postal quarters an annual rentals exceeding $6,000 "uneconomical." The general subject has been under senate investigation, with a report in • the offing. Meanwhile, the post office department was shown in its report to have formulated a plan for ultimate ownership of all quarters now costing more than $6,000 a year. Brown's Argument. Noting that present first class rates have been the same since 1885, except during the war, Brown argued for the ncrease as follows: "Since 1916 there has been an increase of 82 per cent in the second class rate, an increase of 21 per cent in the third class rate, and an average increase of ten per cent in the parcel post rate." x Total Excess. To increase the rates on second, third and fourth class matter instead of first class, Brown contended, would "drive much of it out of the mails, the net result being to increase rather than decrease the deficit. " The total excess of expenditures over receipts was $98,215,000, as compared wtih $85,461,000 for 1929. Deduction of $39,669,000 from this total de- fiicit is allowable by congress for expenditures chargeable to nonpostal activities. To the 1928 congressional readjustment of rates on cards and secondary matters was attributed responsibility for much of the deficit. Public Building Fund. As to the department's "general welfare" functions, Brown said obviously there should be no rate increase on account of such nonpostal factors. The total amount available for public buildings was $363,000,000. Of this, $248,000,000 has been allocated. Air mail was reported increasingly popular with requests for new routes received constantly. A total of 7,719,698 pounds of mail were flown in 1930 over 14,939,468 miles in all.
