One of the men escaped in a' cream- colored car bearing California license No. 100s. Sheriff Oyer of Monterey county wired Sheriff Chappell the man was headed this way. Immediately, Undersheriff Billy Dunne threw out a net-to catch him. Officers were sent to the border line at San. Luis, and the quaran- tine station officers on both sides 'of the line given 'a description of the man and the vehicle he was supposed to be traveling in. San Luis was combed by .both Mexican and American officers for the ruin runner. He was flot and is not there. The- story in the local paper of yesterday recited dramatically .how the man had come to the Califor- nia quarantine station, and because of being armed, wanted, and'fear- ing inspection, wheeled his car and went to Andrade anu from there to San Luis. No cream-colored car bearing California license 100S has been seen "by the California quarantine 'station as the officers there have been watching for the vehicle and have placed the driver un- .rter arrest. Neither has any such car come to the station, turned around and driven toward Aodrade. A check of the Arizona quaran- tine station shows that uo such car had ever crossed the bridge into this state. Local officers say it would be impossible for the rum runner and his car to get from Andradei to San Luis unless he alid his ma- chine were hitched an ni.r- plane and. thus taken across'the Colorado river: (fly Associated Press) DAYTONf July; 13 Judge J.

Out'to .bring.-home the bacon from the game and fish hogs of this vicinity, "sportsmen of Yuma have today decided to organize a chap- ter of Ihe'Isaak-Walton League of 'America, a national organization .'whose sole purpose is'to preserve what is left of our out of doors. Mr. E. B.

This program includes a town to county, county to stale and slale lo nation plan of progression, the first thing of its kind ever intro- duced to the American public. .Three years ago this League was conceived and founded by Will H. Dilg, its national president, at a meeting, of 54 Chicago sportsmen. Since that time the League has i organized active, units in j cities and towns throughout the j United State's.. Despite its short existence league has introduced and passed j many bills of .vital importance to national and state conservation of! oru national resources. Notably the Upper Mississippi River Wild Life and Fish Refuge bill, passed by the last Congress which provides for the purchase and maintenance of 150 miles of Mississippi River bottom' land ex- tending between Rock Island, Ill- inois, and Lake Pepin, Minnesota. needs this organization.
