Editor Outdoor Life
LAST March or April I forwarded you data regarding stream pollution of the Juniata River and its branches in Pennsylvania, and in your May 1947 issue you carried an article with reference to this matter. The West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company is spending $1,500,000 to reduce this pollution, and already the improvement in the condition of the stream is noticeable. While our organization has been extremely critical of the practice of paper companies of polluting the streams in this area and killing the fish, we feel in all fairness to the West Virginia Pulp and Paper Company that the public should be informed of what this company has done.

FATHER of CONSERVATION

ARTHUR GRAHAME
LATE on a February afternoon forty-one years ago a worried man was riding a horse named Jim in Rock Creek Park, Washington, D.C. The man was Gifford Pinchot, America's first professional forester, and the first chief of the U. S. Forest Service. What he was worrying about was the tragic waste of our publicly owned natural resources—land, timber, water, wildlife, minerals.

GIFFORD PINCHOT’S DOCTRINE OF CONSERVATION

The earth and its resources belong of right to its people. Without natural resources life itself is impossible. Therefore the conservation of natural resources is the fundamental material problem. That was never so true as now. • Conservation is the application of common sense to the common problems for the common good.

They agreed the Black Hills is a deer-hunter's paradise; and they developed a system that finally paid them off—double!

Bert Popowski
MY FIRST experience hunting deer was in the 1946 season and there must have been something prophetic in the choice of the area—the Black Hills of South Dakota. Under the state's 1947 regulations, nonresidents were not licensed to hunt there but I got in under the wire and made the most of it. Per haps my memory of that hunt is even more appealing now when I realize I can't go back there with a big~game rifle.

POINTER ON RAINBOWS
When Dee pointed to his trout and called "Gittim!" Ormond could not believe his eyes. Here's one of the strangest angling yarns we've seen!

CLYDE ORMOND
THE wind was coming from the snowcapped mountains and pines to the north, and seemed coldly concentrated upon the river canyon. So there was no business being a hatch upon the surface of Idaho's Snake River. But there they were, a million olive-green flies, looking for all the world like artificial uprights, floating and skittering in the breeze like midget sailboats. Neither did rainbow trout have any business coming to the surface on a day like that.

Sometims It's Fun TO GO ALONE
Companionship is dear to the hearts of most hunters—but, writes this author, there's much to be said for playing a lone hand!

CHESTER CHATFIELD
Now, I am not one of those misanthropic, morose humans who habitually go it alone. Much of the pleasure of a hunting trip comes in the evening around the fire, with a party of good fellows spinning tall yarns and the crackling flames light ing their grins at improbable tales. I've had many a good laugh and many a fine evening with old friends in the hills.

WHERE ARE THE FISH? ASK YOUR THERMOMETER!
Be sure to read this article—it's a must for every angler! It sums up, in plain language, what scientists have learned about how water temperature affects the whereabouts of fish. Read it and reread it, master the vital information it contains, then apply it next time you go lake fishing. You will increase your catch as a result; whereas anyone who fishes haphazardly, ignoring the fact that angling is a scientific pastime, is throwing away most of his chances—and missing out on the fun!

HANDLEY CROSS
SOME of today's most successful anglers go fishing "by degrees." By substituting the scientific precision of a thermometer for the more colorful but less accurate local fish lore of Smoky Joe, the old guide, they are able to do all their fishing where the fish aie on any particular day, and so to have more fun by catching more of them. As is nearly always the case when we start to do an old thing in a new way, fishing by degrees requires a reshuffling of our brain cells— what might be called a new mental stance.

SIXTY THOUSAND GANDERS
Few thrills can equal the sight and sound of flying geese, unless it's getting your limit—just after the last hope has died

FRANCIS C. ZUIKER
SITTING right in the middle of them, I felt sick and glad in waves. For a while, the only cover I had was from the stalks of corn that the geese hadn't pulled down. The big birds came in waves and in doubles. They came high and low, sometimes so close that I could almost reach out and touch them. Their voices were like a sea of sound crashing on the rocks of some beach.

YOU can't spend much time in Tellico Plains without getting an itch to go wild-boar hunting. The town lies at the very foot of the Great Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee, fifty-odd miles south of Knoxville. It's the boar-hunting capital of the North American continent. Even if you drive in as a total stranger, it'll take you only about ten minutes to discover that fact.

"OVER in the southeast corner of this pasture,” said Manuel, the cowhand and expert deer hunter on the big Texas ranch where Dave and Jim and I had gone in quest of venison, “there is a mighty black buck. Only a few people have ever set eyes on him. He is like no other deer in this part of the country.

FISHERMEN are much better off than hunters these days. They can have all the fun of fooling, hooking, and playing a fish, and then turn it loose to catch again some other day. But alas, a game bird can be dropped only once. And it's no fun just to miss 'em. Ardent gunners who find it necessary to earn a living in an overcrowded part of the country can take up skeet, drive hundreds of miles, or know a guy like Frank.

THE FIRST AMERICANS WERE HUNTERS
You and the Indians have a lot in common! Sportsmen from 'way back, they lived the outdoor life... pursued the same game.. .hit on means to outwit the quarry that are still in use today. So this fact-filled article is right down your alley. As you read it, match your ingenuity and skill with the red men s. Imagine yourself using the same primitive equipment—and see how you’d make out!
THE LITTLE GUIDE
[no value]
[no value]
FRED R. ZEPP
LONG before the dawn of recorded history on this continent, men were fishing and hunting. More than that, the American Indian was an outdoorsman in the most literal sense of the word; a sportsman and conservationist whose distinctive way of life was in full flower decades before the white man first set foot in the sprawling, uncharted wilderness. The Indian has aptly been described as a child of nature.

ABOUT dusk one evening I was fishing for bluegilis with a light fly-rod outfit, casting a small cork bug .up under the overhanging brush along the shoreline of a small lake. The little fellows were apparently feasting there on insects that I couldn't see, in water not over a counle of feet deep. As my bug dropped to the water beside a fallen dead tree something made a wicked slash at it and missed.

WITH this issue OUTDOOR LIFE is fifty years old. Half a century ago—in January, 1898—the magazine made its first appearance. Then, and ever since, it has sought to bring its readers the best in outdoor articles and pictures; to heighten the enjoyment of fishing and hunting; and to safeguard America's favorite sports for genera tions yet to come. In that first issue OUTDOOR LIFE raised its voice in a brand-new cause—the cause of conservation.

VANCE LOCKE
N. L. McALMOND
THROUGHOUT the years that I've been hunting I've heard moose called just about everything—from the dumbest animal that walks the earth to the smartest. This wide difference of opinion on the character of our biggest deer is merely illustrative of the fact that each individual moose is more or less a law unto himself. Naturally when a hunter recounts his experience with one, his opinion of the critter is based on what happened to him.

ONE MATCH vs. DEATH!

Bert Stoll
TWO MEN crouched on the ice over the little heap of twigs they had so painfully gathered. One held a broken match in his stiff fingers. To the twigs, the other added pieces of pencils he had broken up—the only other dry wood available. Then he took the stub of a candle and held the wick close to the match. It was in the Great Bear Lake area of the Northwest Territories, shortly after the discovery, at LaBine Point, of pitchblende, source of uranium for the atomic bomb.

THESE photographs, made by Charles H. Niehuis, show an event which is eagerly looked forward to each year, both by Tucson sportsmen and by the youngsters in the Arizona Children's Home. It's the annual dove shoot conducted by the members of the Tucson Game Protective Association— and the big idea is to give the orphaned kids a lot of swell eating. Jack O'Connor, editor of OUTDOOR LIFE'S Arms and Ammunition Department and past president of the Tucson Sportsman's Club, is one of the prime movers in arranging the hunt which provides such a glorious banquet for the little ones.

CLEANING PANFISH? THAT'S EASY! TRY THIS QUICK, SIMPLE METHOD

MOST fishermen who dread the chore of cleaning panfish must be using the wrong method. It can be done quickly and easily. After scaling the fish make a cut from the back of the head to the vent. That disposes of the head, front fins, and belly. Flip out any remaining viscera with your thumb. Salt the fish well, dip it in corn meal, and fry in deep fat.

DURING the last century the sky above the Pigeon Hills near Hanover, Pa., was darkened by huge flocks of passenger pigeons. Today not a single one of the colorful birds survives, although billions of them once lived in North America. Today, on that wooded hill where flocks rested during migratory flights, is a simple stone marker—a memorial to the birds and a grim reminder of the need for conservation. Affixed to the shaft is a plaque which gives a brief history of the birds from the time when they were one of the most abundant species to their last flight from the area in the 1880’s.

A FISH story with a serpentine twist: After Nelson Williams of Pikesville, Md., hooked a 10-in, trout, a water moccasin swam away with it. As a friend took pictures, Williams leaped into the stream and netted both snake and trout. He killed the snake, thus saving the fish —which he took home and ate for supper.

JACK O'CONNOR
JUST before I pulled out for northern British Columbia in the late summer of 1946, a well-known custom rifle maker wrote to ask if I would like to try out one of his sporters for a new ultra-high-velocity cartridge on game. I would have liked nothing bet ter. I have always wondered just how far the substitution of velocity for bullet weight could be carried.

Sam Cline
TAKE my word for it, full-grown bald eagles sometimes stage tough aerial scraps, high above the wilderness, in which no quarter is expected or given. A couple of years ago I was running survey lines through sand-dune country on the north shore of Lake Michigan, in the upper peninsula of Michigan a few miles west of Gould City. The dunes were dotted with stands of big pine and hemlock, and I knew that eagles had nested in that district for many years.

Question : I am a beginner at the reloading game and have been told that the primer pockets of government .30/06 cases are too small to accommodate commercial nonmercuric primers. Is this true? I have a number of .30/06 cases lying around and would like to reload them, but I am puzzled about this primer business. Is there any method for neutralizing the corrosive salts in government primers?—Charles J. Hadley, Neb.

The contributor of this little story makes no claim to originality; he's passing it along only because he enjoyed It and thinks others will too. TALK about windstorms—you likely won't believe this unless you were there, and if you had been, you likely wouldn't be here, so it doesn't matter anyway. It happened some years ago in the sand-hill country of Nebraska where Jonesy and I were tending stock.

WITH his latest ’scope, the K-6, Bill Weaver has invaded the field in which for so long, the big German Zeiss, Hensoldt, and other German ’scopes held undisputed sway—that of the strong, rigidly mounted hunting ’scope of high power. We had plenty of 6 and 8X ’scopes, but they were of the target type. For varmint hunting, the target-type ’scope with its delicate mountings is a makeshift.

How to Make Your Own "Glass Ball" Targets

Charles E. Sowie
THERE seems to be an interest these days in the “glass balls” which sharpshooting acts in old-time circuses and Wild West shows used as targets. As a matter of fact, they weren’t glass at all, but molded resin. I used to shoot at them and have molded thousands of them. Here’s how you can do it: First, have two hollow wooden half balls turned out.

JACK O’CONNOR often advocates, in his articles in the Arms and Ammunition department of OUTDOOR LIFE the use of light open-bored guns for upland shooting. That is the best bit of advice I have read for a long time. I found that when I could sneak out my wife’s 28 gauge (with a recoil pad to lengthen the stock) I collected as many snipe as with my own 12 gauge. During the snipe season in Sumatra 30 or 40 shots of an evening, in the hour and a half between office closing and dark, are about the number to be expected.

THERE are two schools of thought on the grizzly and brown bear. One holds that the hunter of any of the big bears is in about as much danger as he would be if he strolled down to the corner drugstore to get himself a soda. Members of the other school maintain that the big bears are potentially dangerous animals, that they are often unpredictable, and that one should shoot fast, accurately, and often. Here is some testimony as to the durability of brownies from Robert A. Uihlein, veteran big-game hunter of Milwaukee, Wis., who headed an expedition to Alaska to collect specimens for the Milwaukee Museum : “Walter Pelzer, the museum taxidermist, hit a brown bear five times with a .30/06 using 220-grain bullets.

MANY NEW SPINNING REELS AVAILABLE; CHOOSE ONE THAT MEETS YOUR NEEDS

RAY BERGMAN
SOME of my readers may not be acquainted with spinning—a relatively new type of angling which began to attract attention here in America just a year or two before the war. Spinning is quite distinct from either bait or fly casting, both in technique and equipment. The method is particularly suited to handle lures which are too heavy for a fly rod and too light for the conventional bait-casting outfit; but it overlaps the older methods to such an extent that a suitable spinning rig may be a satisfactory choice for the one-rod man, as well as for the chap who’ll use it only with those inbetween lures and under conditions where it will work to best advantage.

HERE'S a simple way to keep your fishing tackle from rusting, even in rainy weather. Take a stick of ordinary schoolroom chalk—which will absorb moisture from the air in the tackle box —and bore a number of holes completely through it. This increases the water-absorbent surface area. Put the chalk into the tackle box, and you won’t have to worry any more about the finish of your fishing gear.—John Krill.

AFTER reading my advice on cutting off the dorsal fins of a fish before skinning it, G. R. Angle wrote to describe a trick of his own. He uses a pair of pliers to rip off the skin and, in the process, pulls off some of the flesh of the stomach-cavity section. Then he grips the end of the dorsal fin with the pliers and yanks it out, together with most of the small bones attached to it. In view of the number of inquiries I receive regarding kinds of wood used in amateur rod making, a letter from Charles H. Chapman, of New York state, should be welcomed by Daybook readers.

MAURICE H. DECKER
THE ARMY has a saying that to keep warm in cold weather you must avoid getting hot. This is sound advice because many of the chills suffered by the winter sportsman are due to overheating which causes excessive perspiration. As everyone knows, moisture is an excellent conductor of heat and when clothing becomes damp it permits the body warmth, on which we depend for comfort, to escape. This fact helps us understand why wearing too many or too-heavy garments in low temperatures can defeat the very purpose we try to achieve.

AT THE State Game Farm near Frankfort, Ky., one of those mysterious and unexplained vagaries of nature, which had been in process about a year, is now complete. Henrietta, a full-grown female ringneck pheasant, has turned into a male! Earl Wallace, director of Kentucky's Division of Game and Fish, explained the transformation in the division’s official publication, Happy Hunting Ground. He relates that in the spring of 1946 Henrietta had soft gray plumage and a genuine maternal air.

Question: Please tell me how to trap rabbits. I’ve tried using bits of carrot and apple as bait, but the rabbits won’t touch it.—Paul W. Graff, N. Y. Answer: There are three essentials to trapping any wild animal. The trap must be placed where the animal will find it; it must be so arranged that it won’t make him suspicious; and there must be bait or scent inside or near by to draw him to it. Then, too, the* animal must be hungry enough to be interested in the bait you have put inside the trap.

When fortunate enough to obtain some of these small silvery fish, try this way of cooking them. Soak 3 lb. fish several hours, first in salted, then in clean, water. Put in a pan and half cover with hot water. Place in a hot oven for 15 minutes. Then pick out the bones. Peel 6 medium-size potatoes and 1 onion, and cook in 11/s qt.

RECENTLY a friend complained that a plywood boat he built a couple of years ago had begun to leak so badly it was unsafe. Also, it neither rowed well nor did it perform satisfactorily with an outboard motor. "I'm fed up with boatbuilding," my friend concluded. “Did you follow plans?” I asked.

AN UNDERSLUNG boat trailer weighing about 100 lb. and built with airplane tubing makes loading and unloading a quick, one-man job. The design could be adapted to the dimensions of any trailer-size boat and built to order for around $125. The accompanying illustrations show the general plan of construction.

Boat Loans for Veterans

J. A. E
AVETERAN of the second World War may qualify for a loan with which to purchase a boat to be used for earning a living. Loans have already been made enabling some veterans to buy cruisers for taking out fishing parties, boats suitable for servicing or selling supplies to ships at anchor in harbors, and craft for commercial fishing and lobstering. Veterans of the Navy, Coast Guard, and certain branches of the Army who have had the proper training and experi ence are particularly fitted for some such venture.

Answer to Boating Fans
V-stern Canoe or Dory?
Aluminum Meets Requirements
Two Outboards Faster Than One?
[no value]

[no value]
Question : In this neck of the woods there seems to be a preference for the V-stern canoe, with an outboard, for all-round use. I think it’s a poor boat because one has to watch one’s balance and that means back strain. I read in the June, 1947, issue Phil H. Moore’s description of his dory, wljich he describes as a “sweetheart.”

SAID to be the world's largest inland lake within the boundaries of one state, Wisconsin's Lake Winnebago gives some mighty fine fishing for species ranging from panfish to muskies. Though it has a reputation for being a wall-eye lake, Winnebago has yielded an increasing number of muskies over the last 2 or 3 years. Game wardens this year netted and released a 59-in.

THERE IS REAL FISHING in Catherine Creek, N. Y., when the rainbow run is on. This stream flows into Seneca Lake at its southern end, and the fish will be found in the riffles during this spawning run. The largest rainbow I caught was 28 in. long and weighed 7 lb., but I saw fish up to 16 lb. It is worth the trip just to see these big trout.

DOES THAT FOUR-LEGGED HUNTING PAL OF YOURS THINK? READ—AND DECIDE!
[no value]
[no value]
C. BLACKBURN MILLER
FOR hundreds of years, men and dogs have been hunting together, working out such smooth patterns of cooperation that today most of us take them all for granted. The average gunner blandly accepts the fact that a welltrained animal will retrieve a bird and place it in his hand from a position the dog has been taught to assume. But, for contrast, just think of the dog of long ago in his natural, primitive state—hunting his food, bringing it down by sheer strength and perseverance, and then greedily devouring it on the spot.

Dogs Have Blood Banks Too

A. J. Cutting
A WORRIED owner brought his fox terrier into a large animal hospital a while ago, and the dog didn't seem to have much of a chance. He had eaten grass that had been sprayed with arsenic and was weak, listless, and anemic—a plenty sick dog. The veterinarian examined the animal and made a blood count. "We'll have to give this fellow a blood transfusion," he said, somewhat to the astonishment of the dog's anxious owner.

Dr. Kinney is glad to answer personally all letters from readers regarding their dogs’ health. It should be remembered when writing him that serious illnesses cannot be treated successfully by a person unable to examine the dog. In such instances, a dependable local veterinarian should be consulted immediately. Question : Although I’ve tried many remedies, my dog still has ticks.
