The proposed change in license lees due for consideration in the present session of the legislature, should be of great interest to all ÜIHSïâha sportsmen. Few conser vation minded folk are opposed to the suggested raise in resident licenses, but a wide diversion of •opinion prevails regarding the pro per fee for non-residents. Wyoming in 1946 charged non residents, citizens of the United States $100 for g general hunting with extra and fishing license, charges for permits to hunt ante lope, moose and mountain sheep. In '45 this same state charged non residents $25, as compared with the state's long standing charge of $50. Included in privileges of the general licenses are: Jeer, one bear (black or grizzly). :small game and fish. Idaho has a similar $50 general ■charge for non-residents and re •quires export tags of $1. Utah has $15 charge for non-resident dter hunters: Colorado charges $25 for a non-resident big game license on ■which the sportsman may kill either buck deer or one bull elk. one elk. one .1 ■one He may also obtain an additional license at the same cost on which he is allowed either a buck deer bull elk, but the animal on the second license must be of the oth ;r than the one on the first In other words, for $50 licenses both a buck deer ind a bull elk may be taken but not 'two animals of the same species. In certain sections of the state doe and cow elk seasons are also open the sportsman being allowed (if he has the corresponding reg ular big game licenses) to secure permits at $5 each for killing one Joe and one cow.

Such a raise would be; not at all exorbitant and any spoils man who is unwilling to pay a fair price for good hunting, should not be welcomed to our game fields, welcomed to our game fields. However, charges for a general big game license of $75. $100 or greater are altogether too high if we wish to have« outside sports men hunt in our slate. Should we wish to keep them out. then we should have such charges which would certainly send non-residents to other states or across the line into Canada.

In other words, the average ; wage earner, who gets his entire i income from wages subject to with holding, is not required to file ai declaration and need conly file his final return before March 15. The principal groups concerned with January 15 filing are: j 1.

The Collector estimated that orriy lax now. 2. Business & Professional people generally—This group was sup-; posed to have filed declarations of their 1946 tax last March 15. and generally will have only to nay the final installment on such dec larations. However, those who failed to file should do so now. and those who wish to change their estimates to avoid the penalty for under estimating by more than 20 per cent have until January 15, to file. 3. Certain Wageearners January 15 does not apply I Al though to the majority of wageearners whose sole income is from wages subject to withholding, the filing date does apply in the same way as described for businessmen in the previous paragraph to the following. 0.
