S. Forest Service. BY RALPH HERBERT SOME years ago, until the Brit- ish and the Belgians in their respective colonies took steps to form big game reserves where the wild animals indigenous to Africa could not be hunted, there was grave danger that many fine specimens of beasts would be exterminated. Seemingly there is no such danger in the United States. Game animals have nearly dou— bled in numbers in the national forests every year since 1908. In 1924 the big game population in the forests was 693,000. Today it is 2,100,000. Hunting is al- lowed at certain seasons. This, together with the natural losses due to death from disease, has not materially cut down the number of animals which range the timbered ground. In fact, they average about six to the square mile of national forests. STATE RANKS SECOND The State of Washington now ranks first in the West and sec-i ond in the nation in the number of frozen food locker plants in uSe, according to a recent survey made , by the federal extension service. Washington with 347 locker plants holds 2nd position for the nationi behind Iowa whiéh lists 475. The survey shows 3,623 locker plants in the nation for 1941 as compar- ed with 2,870 in 1940 and 1,861 in 1939. Washington entered the freezer locker field as a pioneer and has consistently been a leader in all lines of work connected with the frozen food industry. Of a total production of 1,038,- 668 shotguns reported to the Cen- sus Bureau by the firearms in- dustry in the last two Censuses of manufactures, 197,241 were double-barreled, and 841,427 were single-barreled, including automat- ic, repeating, and single shot. 'l194o, BIG game animals stack up as follows: 1,800,000 deer, 154,— 000 elk, 63,000 black bears, 20,- 000 antelopes, 19,000 mountain goats, 9600 bighorn, 7500 moose, 7500 peccary, 4800 grizzly and Alaska brown bears, 790 wild boars. The latter are not native. Some were imported a few years ago by sportsmen and are now found in the national forests in the Appalachians and'in one in California. About one-third of all the big game in the United States is found in the national forests. In the western states three—fourths of the big game make their home all the year or part of the time in the national forests. In addition to the big game, these forests are estimated to contain about 7,000,000 fur—bear- ing animals, of which 3,000,000 are rabbits and hares and 2,000,- 000 are squirrels. There are also 5,500,000 game birds. l l l l FLOWERS In: WAR-Tan " ENGLAND‘ This is the ’first‘ of a new series 'of garden a/rticles designed to bring the attention of gardeners throughout the state to bear upon the important details of their work ‘with the. trees, shrubs, and flow- ers that they use both outside and inside the home. Thoso of us who have had access to information from abroad have been very favor- ably impressed by the attitude of the people of England toward their flowers during these trying times. The Royal Horticultural So- ciety’s two-weekly flower shows have been held regularly with but a single execption. At the height of the. bombings last September. they Were forced to skip one show. To quote from a recent .English source on the subject of FOOTBALL SWEEPSTAKES Beginning Tuesday, September 23 $100 in Awards To the Best Grid Prognosticators LOTS OF FUN FOR ALL 0' V4 i cudtural l these displays and of flowers in general: “These exhibitions al- ways give a vivid picture of what the very best nurserymen, horti- , institutes, and private gardens are producing at the time. chiefly in the flower line, but now increasingly for educational and advisory purposes in high-grade vegetable and fruit. “There are still masses of cut flowers (carnations, roses, etc.) ,sold in shops and on the streets. {There is still that magic beauty {of radiant flower borders, rare shrubs, and vines in peaceful col— lege grounds and public parks? there is above all the indescribable. variety and loveliness of flowol‘s‘ round the private house and lawn- reflecting the personal taste and skill of its owner, for remember ‘this is the country of passionate flOWer lovers and natural garden- ers. blessed by a happy climate." There is no doubt that much space formerly devoted to floweI culture in England has now been turned to the cultivation of Vege' tables and fruits. The famous nur- series and botanic gardens have all found it necessary to asSiSt in allaying the food problem.

Plumb Shelton| Librarian The second story hour in the winter Series was held at the lib- rary on Saturday. Mrs. Harold Christian’s charm as a story tell- er is working splendidly. Thirty- inine new listeners came in addi— Such big PREYING upon all these'are estimated to be 396,000 predatory or meat-eating aniw mals. These include the puma, " i. commonly called mountain lion, a ,3 and coyotes. There are 677 game refuges in_ the national forests. They‘con-g stitute 33,525,768 acres out of the» net total of 175,584,048. - At certain times last . year, 714,000 big game hunters, 302,- 000 small game hunters and 12,- 000 trappers were allowed to hunt in the free ranges of the national forests. This is done in order to keep the numbers of game in line with the feeding 1 capacity of the ranges. The sur- ' vivors are healthier and better animals. Over-population would I not only cause deterioration in the quality ofthe animals, but would be a danger to the tian I and also to forage. ‘T ._...._...-,. ,_...l_._._...__._.__ , gimp“ we; ease up ‘a bit.‘ Some, garden. ers found their grass becoming progressively browner no matter how much sprinkling was done, Why? Not enough fertilizer! A light application of a nitrogen- carrying substance or any good complete fertilizer would have. turned the trick‘ and reduced wa- ter expenses too by reducing the, amount needed. This practice also has a bear- ing upon the weed problem too. Dandelions, plantains. and sim- ilar plants never suffer from drought and starvation as severe- ly as do the grasses. One rea- son? They have a much deeper root system! The roots of lawn grasses are near tho. surface of the soil. This is particularly true if you sprinkle lightly each day rather than soak the ground deeply as you should. Lack of fertilizer elements plus incorrect watering discourages the grass and therefore encourages the weed species by eliminating competition. Of course no amount of fertiliz- ing and watering will eradicate weeds entirely but- it does, brmging about a heavier, deeper! mhre water; if it becomes cooler,‘ mat 01’ grass, make it much more difficult for the weed seeds to' germinate. the soil so readily do not deVelop in such vast num- bers. Of course those that are! able to germinate and grow must| be taken out, preferably by hand.
