Game Bills Puts Senator
Asimus In Limelight
Tony Asimus, the tall, ►'road
shouldered freshman senator from
the Twenty-eight district whose
maiden legislative efforts aroused
statewide protest, took defeat phil.
osophically. His three wildlife
bills were killed in committee last
“I was thinking of my people in
the drouth area. I sought to light
en their burden,” he says.
Asimus is the O’Neill oil dealer
and grocer who scored one of Hie
November election’s most startling
upsets by unseating F-ank Brady,
Thus did he explain his reason
for asking that farmers be per
mitted to hunt and fish on their
lands without payment of license
“I was born and raised on a farm
and know that the farmer feeds
and protects game. He is the
best game protector we have, but
the city fellows come onto the
farm and shoot off the game, kill
poultry and live stock and leave
“I sincerely believe the city
hunters should pay for this privi
lege. What would a city dweller
think if a farmer came onto his
yard and tramped down his flow
ers and knocked over fences?
“We’ve been hard hit by drought.
I sought a reduction to $1 in the
license cost to help these people,
many of whom can’t afford the
Also killed was his measure to
tax hunting dogs $15 each, the
money to replace that lost by li
His voice raised just a trifle
when he discussed fishing condi
tions in Holt county.
“The game oemmission had made
a lot of promises about improving
fishing in our county, but after
stocking a lake they put up no
“I know for a fact that in all
of Holt county there are not more
than two lakes open to fishing
where my people can fish without
paying a daily fee.”
Tony Asimus says he is going to
“keep on trying to help my people.”

Holt County Senator Has
Amendment To Game
Laws That Wins Acclaim
The following appeared in Sun
day’s World-Herald, written by
“An amendment to Section 37
406, Compiled Statutes of Nebras
ka, would put teeth in the present
law to provide for the passage of
water over or through dams or
other obstructions in order to pre
serve fish life.
“Introduced by Senator Tony
Asinius of the Twenty eight dis
trict, the amendment provides:
•That the owner of such dams
or obstructions shall permit}
enough water to flow over or
through the dams to maintain such
a level of water in the stream or
river below the dam so as to
preserve fish life in each stream
“The amendment would fine vio
laters not less than |5o nor more
than five hundred dollars.
Carl F. Nelson, Spencer, Nebr.,
cites conditions on the Niobrara
river in urging the amendment’s
“He says the dam on the Nio
brara near Spencer has been ruin
ous to fish life below it, not only
preventing natural migration from
the Missouri river, hut actually
causing a heavy loss due to low
“Senator Asimus’ amendment
would empower the state game
commission to make necessary ad
justments or repairs to assure ade
quate fishways and recover the
cost from the owner.”

ers. The reaction was favorable

cation project was considered a
