Water where they hunt for the clams,
crabs, sea bugs nnd different crustacea
that are being continually dislodged by
iravo action from the sand bar. This

With the ratification by the Senate of

United State and Canada, tho first
treaty of Its kind, the eyes of sportsmen i

case than three nnd a half months, and
eliminates spring shooting.
Previously some States and provinces
practically had an open season for wild-1
fowl and shoro birds as long as they
remained with them. In this way thcu
gunners destroyed the shooting for others
and If allowed to keep It up for a sutll-
dent time would have killed what H i
left of tho vast number in North Amer-
lea a century ago.
The slogan of tho association whose
work counted for so much Is "The game
of a continent ours to protect." Incor
porated In New York September 2.''.
1511, In le.s than two years of work It
accomplished the passage by Congress
nnd the Senate of the Wceks-.McI.eiin
law, which placed migratory wildfowl,
shore nnd Insectivorous birds under Fed
eral authority. It was pointed out that
the birds belonged to no Individual State,
merely passing tlnough on spring and
The Weeks-McLean law permitted the
Federal tlovennent, acting through the
Hlologlcal Survey of the Pepartmcnt of
reasons on thee birds. F.ach State, i
however. retained the r'ght to say what
the bag limit should be, what the license
tb shoot should cost, If any, what penal
ties for violations of the law should be
and so forth.
Federal Lnw Mated lllrds.
Practically all the States as their
Legislatures met sought to make their
laws coincide with the open and close
staions of the Federal laws, otner ,
States, whleh permittid long open sea-.
sons for wildfowl and shore birds, fought I
the law and for years theie lias been (
conflict, but these States are few and
far between. A decision of the Supreme
Court Is expected to settle tho question
definitely this fall. .
Legislators have recognizee! ine aine
to tho fanner of these birds. Nearly
all of tho birds are destroyers of Insect
pests. Also conservationists have given
thought to the generations of sportsmen
to follow and In this way have provided
a supply ot game euros.
