By Terry Ryan Associated Pross Writer The ancient mid oft-ma- ligned practice of poaching Is on the increase In hunting areas across the country, say gtmic and wildlife officials. The price of steak, unemploy- ment and inflation are among the explanations offered for the increase. "Ten years ago, a lot of poaching was a carryover of the old tradition of living off the said Nnrnia Ames of the New Mexico Game and Fish Department. "Now your poachers contain a much larg- er percentage of urban people concerned about getting meat." Serious Most poaching involves deer hunting them without licen- ses or permits, sho.oting them out of season, hunting at night or with spotlights, and illegal killing of does. The kings of ancient Assy- ria, faced with similar prob- lems protecting the royal preserves, resorted lo cutting off the bow arm of poachers. In 19111 Century England. 'judges just shipped poachers off to Australia. In Ohio, the maximum fine for deer hunt- ing without a permit is now days In juil. Without ,returning to the punishments of old, officials in several states said more se- vere penalties were necessary now to deal withrthe poaching problems. "We're going to have to keep fines, in line with the price of said Charley Kelly, director of Ala- bama's Game and Fish De- partment. Texas officials reported US violations during August of the two major hunting laws killing or possession of deer, out of season and hunting at' night. That was up more than 100 percent from the 58 viola- tions reported in, August of last year. Worth.Risk.- Despite fines, some people feel poaching is worth the risk, said Henry Burkett, director of law enforcement for the Texas Department of Parks and .Wildlife. "When Five from C.R.

As a TCbinger finished third in (he conference in the -100-yard freestyle. Filzpatrick reports the Cornell1 team will be lacking in the diving department, with only Elaine Massey of Green- wood, Incl., returning. Besides Massey. there are three- other women on the Cornell team. The women are eligible because nf the Mid- west conference rule allowing coed participation in nun- contact sports.
