Sentinel Photo) Rough Estimate In On Hunt Kill A meeting of ,all district super- visitors ad game biolog}sts of the State Game Departmant  last week provided the first rough es- tbrmtes of the 1960 kill in Wasb2ng- ton. At the meeting field personnel gave their estimates of kill based upon cheeks of hunters in the field nd comparison with previ- ous seasom. This approximate meth- od indicates tat around 72,00O deer were taken, and 7,4000 elk. Field persenraff ,also felt that the upland bird kil4 was above that of 1959, wleh, m tram, was bettor than the 10-year overage. East side districts indioated a 1960 .larvest of pheasants up 20-5O per cent over taSt year and the total sate kill should exceed 400,000 birds.

You don't have to worry about fit, shape or color. They come 4n sizes that suit everyone, are easy to purchase, and make a gift that lasts and grows. They are symbols of Peace, as every bond purchased helps maintain the security of our country. This is one way we can give expression to our patriotic feelings in these critical times.

Outdoor writer Jobson obliged and returned six months later with a series of articles tiffed, "Assignment -- Alaska Hghway." The essence of his 1955 survey could be summed up in one of his comments: "We just about ruined a brand-new pickup truck and house trailer." Realizing at tim Alaska High- way was a "hot'-' subjec among the outdoor fraternity, Sports Afield asked John Jobson to make oJmther up-to-date coverage of the famed highway. Titled "Return to the Ahska Highway," it appeared as a series of articles in the recent issues of Sports Afield. Jobson, driving a pickup truck with coach from California, began the ctual trip at Milepost Zero, B. C., the offieial starting point d southerly erminus of the Aaska Highway. The Highway ends at Fairbanks, Alaska,  total of 1,523 miles. Jobsou's report answered Sports Afield's big question: The Alaska Highway is much smoother and easier to negotiate than any time in 1955. He also reported that dam selection of hunters ,to be questioned wll begin January 9. At that time Gam Biologists will send letters to 5% of the hunting license holders: The result of these questioomaires will give accurate kill igures to be used in evaluating the 1960 ,season. , v.arious stretches of the road are under construction, which would seem to predict that the new state has progressive plans for the High- way. In spite of the better roads, the trip still takes careful preparation and eqaipment. Not much of the Highway is hardtopped, most of its road .are dirt, reck ,,and gravel. Don't be a gravel-road jockey and try to master the Highway in the shortest time possible. Vehicles rake a terrible beating when speed- ing. There are many thousands of bumls along the way, any of which can be hit just right and seriously damage your car or truck. It is necessary to ,be completely self-contained--carrying living quar- ters with you. Facilities are few and far ben on the Alaska Highway House trailers are not the best means of housing for the rip. Kills, mud and rocks make them almost impossible to man- euver. Jobson suggests a pickup truck with coach. This provides living quarters without hauling any- thing behind your vehicle. Extra equipment for your vehicle should include a set of tires, fan beat, fuel aCd water pumps, coil and ignition points. If the gasoline tank is exposed, have it padded and covered with some rubber-like ma- terial. Ftying rocks rtmy puncture it if it is not protected.

The raising 'of peas and corn are impor(ant to many dairymen as a cash crop and these should be fit into rotations where desired by farmers. Peas not only add .to the cash income of many dairymen but. are an important part of winter feeding programs. The group felt that the stands of grass and clover couM be established with peas in many areas of the county. This is an economical way for the farmer to get his stand established. Corn either for silage or processing can be used as a clean up crop in the rotation with good chemical weed control measure ,applied. The group spent more time on this ,topic than any other because of the importance in any rotation or farming pactise. The feeling was that any roation ,adopted by farmers should ,take into account the weed control all along the line. A clean-up crop was recommended for every rotation suggested during the day. They felt that more stands of grass and legumes were ruined by poor weed centre1 than any other factor, maybe with the excep- tion of keeping clover in the stand. The sugge .sths were many includ- ing chemical cleanup, using corn, working after peas, summer plow- ing, dean cultivation, winter work- ing of land and various adaptations of these practices. Length of Btation The length of the rotation would depend to a large extent on the crops to be grown. The suggestion was from five to seven years in Q the roation with the 9anger time being where cash crops are grown such as peas and cannery corn. kl/Ikl Ulf4fll The adoption of any rotation of course is up to the individual arm- Model H.
