STATE GAME WARDEN
: BLAMES COUNTY LAWS
FOR SHORTAGE OF FISH
Maryland's Hsh laws are deplorab
ly inadequate, due to local legislation
prevailing throughout the 23 coun
j ties and a consequent conflict of these
laws, State Game Warden K. Lee Le
Compte informed a meeting of the
j Naturalists’ Field Club of Johns Hop
kins University yesterday.
“One of the greatest detriments to
j our fish industry is the polluition of
streams,” continued the speaker. “In
many forms this menace has killed
all lish life and has often proved fa
tal to water fowl. Wherever there is
a factory, a sawmill or a coal mine
along the hanks of a stream you are
very apt to find polluted water. In
the vicinity or wood alcohol plants
‘ y°u are sure to find this condition.”
