2-Alflona (la.) Upper Det MoinM Tuesday, May 29, 1962 tippet Deslotnes II —~*~ THEY ASK A "YES" VOTE (Quest Editoral By Algeria Jayeees) Th» Algona JayCees wholeheartedly en- dors* tht efforts of the Citizens Committee for Better Kossuth, in their efforts to establish a County Conservation Board. The proposed board will have to be approved in the June 4 Primary Election on a separate ballot before it can be put into effect. We find it difficult to imagine what objection could possibly be taken to this issue. W« are already paying for the parks and receational areas that we could have if we had such a board. The $18,234.50 that went into the State Treasury from Kossuth County the past year for the purchase of Hunting, Fishing and Trapping Licenses is not available to be used in Kossuth County for Conservation Projects because we do not have a County Conservation Board. The Pittman-Robinson Act provides that the }Q', Federal tax collected on the sale of guns and ammunition can be made available through the State Conservation Commissions, on the basis of the amounts that were collected through the various states, for the development of hunting areas. The Johnson Act is similar in that it provides for the 10'i Federal tax which is collected on the sale of fishing tackle, motors, etc., to be allocated to be used developing fishing areas. The State Conservation Commission has taken the position that since provisions are made for County Conservation Boards, they are reluctant to consider requests for the allocations of any of the above fund from other individuals or groups. There have been some misunderstandings on the amount of local tax support that may be necessary. State law specifies that with the establishment of a County Conservation Board, the Wpper j&cs joints 111 E. Call Street—Ph.

Board of Supervisors are authorized to levy a tax, if they deem it necessary, of between V4 mill and 1 mill, to support conservation projects. However, it has been estimated that with present county and private lands that have been offered for use in conjunction with conservation projects, and with the State and Federal funds that would become available, we could develop conservation facilities for approximately 10 years before the question of a special levy would need be even considered. Even then, a V4 mill levy would be only 25c on $1000.00 assessed valuation, or $3.19 for the average 160 acre farm in Kossuth County. The Conservation Board would be appoint ed by the Board of Supervisors, serve without pay, prepare and submit requests for development funds, and supervise the operation of conservation projects. It seems to us that we can ill afford not to have such an agency. There has been some misunderstanding voiced as to what control a County Conservation Board would have over any State Parks in the County. The County Conservation Board would have no voice or control what-so-ever on any of the activities of any state parks in its partic ular county. These parks are owned and oper ated by the state. It should be quite clear to all that with the Board of Supervisors appointing the County Conservation Board members, there will most R. B.

Ringsdorf, President NASTY OLD PINBALL Down at Keokuk the other evening, a number of places were raided, and some of them were found to be serving liquor illegally. But one place, a fraternal lodge, was found to have a pinball machine. As a result, the lodge was fined $100 and costs on a charge of keeping a gambling house. This would indicate that the pinball game gave you a chance to win some free games. But having it was classified as a crime evidently.
