that enough citizens 'will sign the

they will be protected. In n
few years it will be possible to
have good hunting and fishing

Let everyone interestad in ei

petitions and become a member
of the ossociation. There are no
dues and no membership charges
whatever, the obligation being
merely o protect the game and
