That is the Mission of Izaak Walton
League Its Conservation Plat
iorm a Worthy Program
"We Pledge Ourselves to Restore
to Posterity the Outdoor America of
In brief, but meaningful words,
the above expresses the worthy
program fostered by the Izaak Wal
ton League, a comparatively new
organization in point of years, but
a powerful factor in bringing about
through education and through leg
islation the conservation of national
outdoor resources. It is non-political,
non-sectarian, and numbers among
its members some of the most public
spirited men and women of the na
tion. From a humble beginning in
1922, this organization has already
brought together in a unified move
ment a multitude of conservationists,
nature lovers and sportsmen from
the East, the West, North and South,
all co-ordinating their efforts toward
that common end.
Dr. Henry Van Dyke said: "I think
if Father Izaak could revisit thi3
world, he wculj be happily surprised
to find a League for this object (as
enumerated above) bearing his name
and heartily glad to join the com
rany." Now that re have given you a
v ord about its purpose and how it
is being accomplished, we think wc
hear the query, 'Mow does it differ
from ether organizations in this
field? We make haste to reply: "In
it3 broad scope of activities. It does
not cover just one field of interest
in the outdoors it covers every field
c. concern to the hunter, fisherman
and nature lover. In its unique type
of organization, individual members,
stale chapters and national head
quarters are all tied together into
one closely knit national group.
And what ha3 it accomplished?
It has awakened individuals through
out the nation to the need of con
servation and directed their activi
ties. It has achieved major legisla
tive victories in the national con
gress and innumerable legislative
victories in state legislatures. It has
improved hunting and fishing condi
tions for the present and assured
better conditions for the future.
Who makes up it3 membership?
Types of persons just like yourself.
People who love the outdoors, peo
ple who like to hunt, people who
like to fish businessmen, farmers,
miners, the man who runs the cor
ner grocery store and the man who
runs a big manufacturing plant, pro
fessional men anyone and every
body who wants a square deal for
outdoor America.
The fact that tnc membership is
increasing ia the best recommenda
tion of it3 program. Thi3 is a job
that's big enough to need your help
and the help cf every man in the
United States.
Your efforts and those of fellow
Waltcnian3 will make for finer
woods, clearer waters and more
abundant wildlife for the enjoyment
of our generation and future gen
erations to come.
The Izaak Walton League is fi
nanced by dues from individual mem
bers and by special memberships vol
untarily assumed.
In addition to thei:- membership
card and button, individual members
receive the League's publication
"Outdoor America," which keeps
them in touch with conservation
happenings, statewide and nationally
and contains much valuable informa
tion applicable to local problems.
Beyond doubt, there is great need
for active Waltonians in Nebraska
where our streams have been robbed

unabated, and cur greatest natural
asset, our forests are being denuded
at a rapid rate.

symbols of the bountiful harvest
that had been reaped and stored
for winter. This Holiday Cake is
similar to the ones they prepared.
During the holidays modern host
esses appreciate having a delicious
fruity cake like this ready to serve

Hybrid Corn
Yield in State
is Excellent
Yield Surpasses That of Ordinary
Corn Varieties by at Least
Seventeen Per Cent.
LINCOLN, Dec. 7 (UP) Hybrid
corn yields surpassed those of ordi
nary corn varieties by an average of
17 per cent in six major experi
mental tests conducted in 1938 un
der supervision of th? Nebraska
agricultural college, Virgil Welch
told the Nebraska Crop Growers as
sociation at an Organized Agricul
ture meeting today.
Welch, agronomy department as
sistant reported a different hybrid
was the highest yielding entry in
each of the six tests conducted. Ex
perimental hybrids topped the lists
in two tests and commercial hybrids
were leaders in the other four.
He pointed out that ordinary corn
did not rank above 16th in any of
the tests. Approximately 50 hybrids
and varieties were entered in each
Although the average yields of all
tatries was higher in the Richardson !
county C5.3 bushel3 per acre hy
brids were superior to common va
rieties there. Welch suggested two
possible explanations. It i3 a popular
theory that hybrids show the most
superiority of varieties where the
growing conditions are more un
favorable and probably fewer hy
brids in the Ilichard3on county test
were large enough and late enoug'a
for that area. Welch emphasized the
hybrids are recommended at present
cnly for eastern Nebraska and irri
tated areas further west. They are
still in the experimental test in other
sictions cf Nebraska. Largest of all
major tests was on the J. G. Mose
man farm near Oakland. Another
test was situated on the W. A. Ty
non farm near Peru. The four of
ficial state owned tests were situ
ated on the M. E. Kelley farm near
Verdon, another near Crete, Jvorth
Bend and Wisner. Four 'tests in Cass,
Polk, Madison and Knox counties
were virtual failures because of
drouth. Comparative average yields
per acre of all hybrids and on va
rieties in the Richardson county
test were hybrids 65.7, varieties 61.9
bushels; Nemaha county test, hy
brids, 85.9, varieties 76.4.
