GOOD START IN GAME PRESERVATION Although game breeding in the United States is still in its infancy there are to-day more than a mil lion affiliated bird students and con servationists, and half that number of sportsmen who are working for 11 bird, and game preservation, says the American Forestry Association, of Washington, which" is conducting a national bird-house building con test to aid in this worthy movement. It has been shown that many wild game birds can be propagated suc cessfully in captivity. In nature probably less than 10 per cent of the eggs of game birds develop into ma ture birds. By artificial cultivation as high as an 80 per cent yield has often been attained.
