An Independent movement ninong rstP( j number of the boys attending thei Boise high school may result in the organization of a cadet corps. An ! informal meeting of the boys Inter-j held Tuesday. Later the, matter was called lo the attention ef Moody who stands favorable to such a movement, j It is understood that a large number| of the boy students are anxious to] secure the benefit of the military l training that would be made pos-1 sible through the organization of I a cadet corps. The matter of organizing a cadet,j corps was called to the attention ofj ! Oliver O. Young, principal, lie | that one of the young men attending ! T the high school had spoken to him about it saying some of the boys were considering the plan. The movement is independent of the high school proper," said Professor Young. "Personally, I believe the mil itary training the boys would receive would be a good thing. A cadet corps might have been taken up by the high school itself, had it not been for the fact I understand the federal officials desire that It be made compulsory for two years, and we do not care to malte it so. That wus ane of the main rea sons negotiations were not carried on further. If the students of the school ! desire to form a cadet corps independ ent of the school itself 1 can see no j objection to it. Certainly the military j training would be a very good ihing j physically and otherwise for those who participated. However, the high ] school itself has no connection with 'he movement."

The state fish and game department announces that it will enforce to the i letter any violations of the game law , ! prohibiting the shooting of ducks be fore or after sunrise. The department I holds that the federal regulation which j went Into effect Oct. 15 permitting the; shooting of ducks a half hour before | j sunrise, does not apply to Idaho. The regulation is made subject to the pro visions of state laws restricting shoot-i l ing during that time. The Idaho law provides that ducks can only be shot I from sun up to sun down, DEPARTMENT ATTITUDE PLAIN. This department will enforce the sta,f ' law. said t htef Clerk t'lift lo saidfollowing receipt of a eommunica ! T * on from W ashington, relating to the regulation, allowing a half hour for shooting before the sun rises. "Tt will be noted that this communication says that the change in the migratory bird law as adopted by the federal govern ment is subject to the provisions of the state laws. It will permit the shooting of ducks in those states a half hour be fore sunrise where there are no state j laws specifically setting other hours. I In states, like Idaho, the law says that ! ducks cannot be killed during the open season except between sunrise and sunset. This is the law that, we will enforce. It will be noted in the gov ernment statement that reference is made to the open season in Idaho being from Sept. 7 to Dec. 20. This is in correct. The open season in this state is from Sept. 16 to Dec. 31." IMPORTANT TO SPORTSMEN. The stand taken by the fish and game department is of importance to sportsmen in Idaho, not a few of whom have been under the impression that because of the government ruling they can shoot ducks a half hour before sunrise. Tf they do this, however, they will he arrested by the state fish and game department wardens.

PRICE TOO LOW. Officials at the state fish and game department say that 2Vi cents apiece is not a big enough price to pay for rab bit skins.

"Somebody might invent a method of killing the animals by the thousands and make money at selling the skins for 2*4 cents apiece," admitted one of tho officials. "There might he found a good market for the meat also, due to the fact meat prices seem to hr aviating. There is nothing the matter with Jack mhhlt meat. The New York proposition Is on condition that the ! pkins are procured whole. The easiest way to skin a rabbit Is to cut off the head, split the fur on the legs, pulling the Hkins off Inside out.
