gelist. "I will make you "fishers of

FISH BILL NOW A LAW
The Dildine fish bill was passed last
week by both the house and senate
over Governor Cox's veto and now be
comes a law. It prohibits scign fish
ing in the Maumee, and now that it
has become a law we can expect some
good fishing along tho river in a year
or two. State Fish Protector Baxter
has promised to place a car load of
fish in tho river near Perrysburg in
the spring. With hundreds of mem
bers of the newly organized fish clubs
in Wood and Lucas counties it will bo
extremely dangerous for anyone to fish
illegally in the Maumee next season.
Join One of the clubs, help protect the
fish, and in a short time, when you go
fishing, you can catch a good string.
