The dally bag limit on rabbits has been reduced from 6 to 4. The dally bag limit on quail has been reduced from 8 to 8. The um of dogs for retrieving doves during the regular hunting season for that species has been legalized. The use of Mil Isketch. rowDoaw, sains or canoes in nunung wild waterfowl will be permitted when they are propelled by hand with oars or paddle* In all tidal waters, such as streams, creeks and livers, where such tidal estuaries are not. more than 100 yards wide. Trout anglers will be glad to learn of the final purchase of two lots on Beaver Creek, including the spring head and comprising about 10 acres. This will become the site for a new' fish hatchery and rearing ponds when the construction of these fa cilities becomes possible. Proper steps will be taken to In clude District of Columbia anglers among those eligible to purchase Potomac River angling license for $1.75. Only residents of Virginia and West Virginia have this privilege at present. While present laws in Maryland regarding wild waterfowl and mi gratory birds will be made to con form to Federal regulations, the law permitting baiting and the use of live decoys in Maryland, both pro hibited bv Federal statute, remain on the books.

July 30 -Bid ding that staggered the imagination | of the most lavish thoroughbred horse fancier today pushed money marks toward unexpected but un mistakable record levels as the Keeneland sales operators braced for the second day of their summer > yearling auctions. Topped by the $54,000 paid for each of two gray fillies last night, ! the first of four days and nights of sales yesterday saw 105 thorough bred youngsters sell for $1,115,800. an average of $10,626 for each colt and filly. On the first, day of sales last year. 96 yearlings sold for an average of $6,762 each. Keeneland set a record for a single auction last year when 405 yearlings sold for $3,134,150, an average of $7,739 each. But this year's opening day record stirred optimism among both the breeders and the Keeneland opera tors.
