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 week. “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, Atkinson. Thus did he explain his reason for asking that farmers be per mitted to hunt and fish on their lands without payment of license fees: “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 gates open. “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 $1.50 fee.” Also killed was his measure to tax hunting dogs $15 each, the money to replace that lost by li (erse reduction. 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 fishing signs. “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.” —Sunday, Omaha World-Herald. Holt County Senator Has Amendment To Game Laws That Wins Acclaim The following appeared in Sun day’s World-Herald, written by Howard Wolff: “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 or river.’ “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 passage. “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 ered waters. “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.” Vacation Week Observed By St. Mary’s Academy St. Mary’s Academy observed its anuual vacation week from Febru ary 10 to 14.
