VAI MET: Some time ago, you had a letter in your
column, written by Bud Johnson, treasurer of the Pierce
County Sportsmen’s association, relative to the “NO HEN”
regulation passed by the state game commission, which will
be in foree this coming hunting season.
In this brief letter, I don't intend to bring up arguments
for or against this regulation, but would like to stress the
fact that the game chiefs do listen to the organized sports
men of the state.
It's true that a good many clubs were Against the no hen reguia
tion, but the majority were for it
Bitter protests were heard from a good many individual clubs,
and individual upland bird hunters, but again the majority ruled,
1f the ¢lubs who are not members of the Washington State Sports
men’s Council wish to become effective, they should join the council and
cast their vote where it will do the most good.
Sending in an objection to the game department by an individual
clud on & matter of statewide interest, when the Sports council sanc
tions it, draws very little water. And rightly so.
The State Sporta council is made up of sportamen’s clubs from every
pook and corner of the state, and when it speaks, it Is the volce of
the majority of organized sportamen of Washington.
There are approximately 100 clubs in the council, some with mem-
Dorships of 1,200 to 1,500 sportemen.
S 0 it's obvious the game department will listen to a group of this
sise, when such & group has something constructive to present, or A
§ood suggestion to make.
If the individual clubs against the “no hen” law had been mem-
Ders of the Sports council, 1 believe they could have voted it down,
It looks to me as if the individual clubs which claim they get no
eo-operation from “our poor group of game commissioners” would
associate themselves with clubs from other sections of the state, they
would no doubt be more tolerant in their statements,
No “Beef” With License . . .
It irks me when a person thinks that just because he
m‘t« a license, the ’mo commissioners should stop
listen to his pet
Every member of the game department is too busy
trying to produce more game and fish for the license holders
to g very much attention to individual comments
's why when the recognized majority speak through the Siate
Sports council, Lhe game chiefs take time to listen to the suggestions
and to act on them if they have merit, '
The Washington State Sportamen’s Council will hold its quarterly
meeting in Tacoma on Saturday and Sunday, September 6 and 7. The
Tacoma Sportsmen’s association will be the host club
All sportamen are invited to attend the Sunday session in the junior
ballroom, Winthrop hotel, beginning at 10 a. m.
1 personally would like to see a representation from the Tacoma
chapter Isaak Walton league, Plerce County Sportsmen's association,
Washington Fish and Game association, Tacoma Gun club, Tacoma
Field Trial club, Tacoma Cocker Spaniel club, Tacoma Pistol and Ritle
elub or any other outdoors club I may have not mentioned,
1 would alse Mke to see each one of these active clubs join the
fports Couneil and register their vote for or AgAinst any resolution
or proposition presented, affecting hunting, fishing or outdoor recrea
tional activities.
A cludb doesn't lose its identity by being a member of the council
1 believe it's good business for every license holder to join some
eports group, and for every sports group or club to join the Wash
ington Sportsmen’s Council,
We don't have to be told that in unity there is strength
Sincerely, C. B. MACDONALD,
Treasurer, Tacoma Sportsmen's Association,
#0383 Commerce Btreet, Tacoma, Washington.
Quite Right. Buddy. Boy . . .
Dear Bud: Between you and me, I still believe that one
hen should be allowed in the bag limit. If not the daily
limit, then one hen in the possession limit,
1 think you feel the same way that I do. That restric
tive rules and regulations are the wrong way to approach
a situation until all other ways and means have been tried
and failed. '
On this upland bird situation, I won't say yes to the “no hen” regu-
Jation until the predators have been brought under control, and food
patches have been established in the hundeds of square miles of cut
over land.
If these two things were established facts, we wouldn't have to
have such restrictive laws today, although the day will come, when
no matter what we do, we will have to abide by even stricter regula
The matural habitat of game is becoming smaller each year and
more hunters are in the fields. A larger license fee will be necessary
and after that 1 don't know what.
But it's & known fact, that the days of free hunting and large bag
limits s past.
1 am glad that my boys and yours are old enough to enjoy at least
fair hunting and fishing, if not in this state, then in Oregon, Idaho,
Montana and Canada where the population is not so great, and the
natural habitat is not reduced to the danger point
Hope your eyes are in good shape, so you can tell a young rooster
ehink from a hen in the fog.

There’s No Complacency in Brooklyn;
New Men Put Dodgers Where They Ave;
MacPhails Outpitch and Outhit Y anks
NEW YORK - There is method
in Leland Stanford McPhail's mad
No member of the Brooklyn club
is permitted to enjoy complacency.
Larry McPhail believes in the
new broom, etc.
Though holdovers —Wyatt, Ca
milli and Dixie Walker among
them-—have done more than all
right, Loudspeaker McPhail is cor
rect in saying that a half dozen
who were not with the club in mid-
June of last vear Reiser, Herman,
Medwick, Owen, Highe and Davis
put the Dodgers where they are
McPhail could also include Lew
Riggs, the pinch-hitting third-base
filler-inner, and make all his deals
look good.
; Pete Reiser has been the find
of the year. In addition to
filling the man-sized assign
ment in center field and being
one of the swiftest men in
baseball, the 21-year-old Reiser
remains a strong contender for
the National league batting
championship in his first full
Reiser further demonstrated that
he is a topnotch hitter by batting
himself out of a slump when the
Flatbushers needed base hits most.
Pitchers don't keep Grade A
hitters down for long.
Reiser practicaly wrecked the
Pittsburghs, who might easily
have won three of the four games
'swept by the Brookiyns at Ebbets
'field had not the boy wonder found
'the range.
. Pulverizing Pete brought home
|the bacon in the opener with a
‘ninth inning homer off the re
'formed Max Butcher . . . batted in
' three runs. His ninth-inning dou
ble sent in the tying and winning
|nu\rkf-n in the third engagement.
' He tied the score with another cir
cuit clout in the final battle . . .
'in the seventh when time was run
ning short
He was at bat 17 times in the
series and obtained eight hits good
for 17 bases and drove in nine
Yankeeg can't match Brooklyn's
pitching and young men like Reis
er make McPhail so bold as to say
that Dodgers would outhit the New
Yorks in the world series, and con
tends that goes for extra bases,
Seven Brooklyns are batting
more than .800, while the Yan
kees have only two, and there
is little question but that the
Flatbush team faces superior
But the Dodgers aren’'t worrying
about the Yankees at the moment,
and do not expect to have much
time to devote to them until the
last shot has been fired in the
championship season
Until then the St. Louis Cardi
nals will be enough job for one ball
