v Theodore Roosevelt, our twlmty-eixth president,, was a great htmtsr and naturalist. Born in New York ha ranched in western North Dalwta--a place now marlmd as a National Monument. He saw tlm last of tlm buffalo disappear and observing that tlm same thing was about to happen to tim d~r, antelope, and elk, he ordered tlm Department of Interior to Idll all tlm predators in tlm National Parks. Tiffs invludod wolves, coyotes, lions and cats. This was dons partly by a famous Kansas hunter named Bttffalo Jones who used dogs and a lariat rope and accounted for over a hundred lions in Yellowstone Park alone. The professional oommrvetion/sts objected claim- , ingth/s program would allow rodents to so increase that they would eat all veptation and would even eat off tlm feme posts. .... : In 1930 while hunting in tim Kinbab Forest of Arizona where predators had been eltminated the deer had be- come ao numerous tlmy were starving as the elk have in yellowstone Park. It warn somewhat like hunting in a corral.

When hunti~ caribou in Saskatchewan, Indian huntsrs in the duck factory area stated that the crows which followthe ducks northandnestontho buslms surrounding the duck marshes wrecked all hut three out of 25 mark- ed mallard nests. Those same crows winter in great roosts in Kansas and near states and are usfly destroyed while roosting at night. We are faced with a similar situation in Kans,. and neighboring states sad probably in the United 8tatss in general regarding the migratory and upland game. We now have a game prOgram that amounts to a plammd scarcity. Farmers cannot raise poultry, certain small livestock, and much garden truck such as sweet corn. This eliminates Kansas as a deair~le retlrement area. Whoreu, with a well-intsnUon-,d predator controJ pro- gram it could really be a Home on the Range. Phauants, turkeys, and antelope could easily be as plentiful as Jack rabbits have been. Locally, quaff and pheasants are our principal upland game. Observing farmers and ]maters stats that about ha/f of the pheasant nuts are destroyed by predators and many more by farming procedusre,mainly by mowing al/aifa; some of those could be salavnged by being put in incubators.

The fund you hold stock in has a finerecord among mut- oals and it would seem to be oue that you could continue to hold profitably. As you probably know, all stocks are down in price from a year ago, and, since theprlce M your fund is determined b the value of the various stocks it holds, it Is only natural thal the value of the fund's stocks also should be down.

The latest convincing evi. dence comes from Allis-Chal. mere, the first manufacturer to offer equipment for planting and harvesting the corn in rows 20 inches apart. The company surveyed 199 customers from Pennsylvania to Colorado. Together, they planted 36,620 acres of corn in 20 inch rows durin~ the 196e season, far from an ~deal grow. ing year. It was an unusually hot, dry, windy summer in many parts of the country, These farmers said they thought the corn they planted made better use of the fertilizer and ground moisture than wide planted corn. Their yields aver. aged 122 bushels an acre. These same farmers com- pared their yields with their neighbors. Results showed that nearby fields planted in rows 80 inches apart grew 110 bushels, and the standard 40 inch corn only 101. Obviously, the farmers sur- veyed were in the better corn growing areas, since the ha-" tional average was only 72 bushels last year. Most of the farmers in the survey were sold on the narrow row method. More than half, 102 said they would plant more 20 inch row corn'for 1967, and 52 indicated they'd plant the same amount.
