X i'AGE SIX FLATTSMOUTH SEMI - WEEKLY JOUE2TAL THURSDAY, DECEMBER 3, 19?8. i - if Defender of Woods, Waters and Wildlife 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 ol fish, stream pollution continues unabated, and cur greatest natural asset, our forests are being denuded at a rapid rate. These interested in securing fur ther information for the organizing of a .chapter of the Izaak Walton League are invited to write to the National Hqrs., of the Izaak Walton League, Merchandise Mart, Chicago. Organization is essential since in dividuals are limited in their owrt' feebly efforts, but collectively know no limitations save their own imagi nations. Conservation Platform Briefly we recount below the 12 point Conservation program that is sponsored and supported by the Wal tonian organization: 1 Eradicate pollution to cafe guard health and aquatic life. 2 Protect and extend our forests. 3 Restore i-.nwiselv drained areas Cass county Tias no onffed In- nud prevent unjustifiable drainage, j debtedness, as, like the state, we 4 Stop sale of wild game and have paid cash for our hard sur game fish. . faced roads and otner Jrnproe- 5 Encourage production of wild- ments as we went. life by improving natural conditions and increasing artificial propaga tion. G Obtain non-political adminis tration of conservation departments. 7 Stimulate public sentiment and teairh conservation in schools? S Establish departments in state educational institutions to advance the practice of wildlife conservation through more trained workers and initiate land management to produce wildlife. 9 Support land use and tax poli cies encouraging adequate forests and wildlife. 10 Support development of com prehensive, scientific and practical plans to restore and perpetuate the country's wildlife, particularly wat erfowl and other endangered spec ies. 11 Obtain the recognition of wildlife as a public resource in the administration of all public lands, based on a policy of greatest benefit to the greatest number. 12 Protect our National Parks, National Forests, and public waters from commercial development or uses incompatible with the public interest, and preserve areas of prim itive country as monuments to the rugged beauty of the natural wilderness. j d u si s$r & & raTO-i?iy&8ia ly ItMMl V r-.

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 test. 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.
