Trappers Hit As Fur

Low Price—No Interest

$1,50, hunters and trappers are
passing them by, and as a result
they are expected to continue to
Their numbers already are great
enough to present a problem for
farmers who reported last summer

Behind the increasing depreda
tions of raccoon is a change in the
fashions, for women no longer wear
raccoon furs, and the slap-happy
collegians who 20 years ago sported
raccoon coats long have disappeared
from the scene.
Coat Demand Slips
Lower prices for furs generally
this fall represent the slipping de
mand for fur coats. High costs of
living have left little money for
I luxuries these days, and the fur coat
market has felt the pressure.
In addition, many persons shy
away from fur coat purchases be
cause of a tax situation which finds
a 20 per cent federal tax and a
three per cent sales tax representing
I roughly one-fourth of the final cost
I of a coat..
Most of the trapping in this area
is done by fanners and their sons,
land those who do not trap their own
land usually lease rights to run trap
lines in their streams.

the 40 singled out by Waring for
specific mention, perhaps because
this city during the last year has
taken preliminary action in prepar-
ing for a system by having com-
pleted plans and specifications for a
system of intercepting sewers and a
Completion of the plans was made
possible thru an interest-free federal
loan. This does not have to be
repaid until a bond issue is passed
here to proceed with the sewage dis-
