Sioux Falls, attorney who leads the hunting group, said a committee will con- tact other organizations interest- ed in a state wide meeting at some central point this fall to oopose "over-commercialization" of the state's hunting resources Commend Commission The group commended the state game and fish commission for work in protecting and propagat ing name fowl.

"It might be better for all con- cerned, of course, if we had a shorter season, smaller bag limit and maintained the sporting ele- ment in hunting." He estimated that the present n amber of pheasants in South Da- kota may be from five to 20 per cent in excess of the 1944 crop, despite the killing of approxi- pheasants last year as indicated by hunters' re- ports. "You must consider the capa- city of pheasants to he said. "There should be no worry about over-shooting this year. The pheasant is the only game bird that can be controled. Pheasants-lend themselves admir- ably to management. It is un- fair and misleading to assume 10 that pheasants necessarily disappear in the manner of cer- tain other game birds." Deplore Practice A declaration of principles au- thorized by Roy T. Willy, another Navy Says Shells To Be Released WASHINGTON, Oct. 11 those shotguns boys. The Navy is releasing 14.- of shotgun shells. Rep. Robertson.. (D- Va) was informed today. This with the the Army recently told Robertson were being released will be a real start toward a peacetime hunting season, the Virginian said. Navy said the ammunition was being declared surplus as a result of examination of stock levels on 12-gauge am- munition used for training purposes. There wasn't a single shotgun shell for sale in Huron ;oday. And the outlook for the remainder of the season definite- y is not bright, according to the majority of local dealers interviewed in a survey by the Daily Hu'ronite. One wholesaler, however, said he had been promised 'plenty of shells by late November or early December" pro- ovided strikes do not halt the flow of fabricating materials Meanwhile, out-of-state hunters were lugging in am munition by the case and re porting that dealers in their home: states even were dis playing shells on sales count ers. Black Markets Big city black markets wer< cited as one reason why some vis iting hunters come with enougl shells 'to fight a Mexican revolu tion. One -Chicagoan admittex this much to a local hardware man in saying that "as long as we sir willing to pay per case yoi probably -won't get many ou Shotgun ammunition i under OPA ceiling, and a goo brand of high base 12-gaugc shell is quoted at per case. One dealer said he had bee informed that approximately 19 000.000 rounds of army surplu shells will be available soon bu that certain interests who hav them for sale won't sell. imlesi they "are slipped a little extr under the table." Another re tailer said he had heard the sam report, but doubted its veracity.

In introducing Director Peter- son. E. J. Kahler, chairman of the state commission, declared that outsiders must-be kept witK- in rules and regulations "but we must clean our own skirts first." ST. PAUL, Oct. 11 A war veteran was held in jail today and Police Chief "Charles Tierney said the suspect who claimed he is. a former member of Carlson's marine raiders had admitted hold- ing up a loan company at Fari-. bault, -Minn., and escaping in a hired airplane. identified the. suspect as Roscoe M. Stam, Jr., 21, of Faribault who was discharged from the marine carps a year ago. Stam was captured last night after Tierney said he had been traced to a St. Paul house. Tier- ney said the suspect" had hired a taxi cab to make the trip to'St. Paul from nearby White' Bear airport where the plane landed. Tierney said Stam admitted holding up the woman office manager of the Phoenix Loan Co., at Faribault, forcing her to turn over in cash to him after she had refused to make him a planation why non-resident hunt- ers seem to find it easier to buy ammunition, however, was that South Dakota was adversely af- fected by the War Production loan. To Speed Return Of Pacific GIs TOKYO, Oct. 11 GI's will be. returned to the United States from the Pacific at the rate of more than a month for the next six 'months, Allied headquarters announced today. By the end -of March a total of men will have been re- turned to the States, leaving ap- proximately men in the occupation forces and units, man- ning army installations in the Pa- cific theater. In Japan, four divisions (ap- proximately 60.000 men) .of com- bat troops, plus air service troops and special occupation units will remain. The Pacific forces will include 200.000 in Japan and Korea: seven thousand in the Philippines and in Okin- awa and the rest of the Ryukyus Islands. The rest of the 400.000 will be and -service forces in Hawaii, the Marianas and oth- er Pacific bases. General MacArthur estimated previously men woufc be needed for -the occupation o: Japan six months after surren der; today's announcement cuts that figure by the two divisions (approximately men which will be. deployed to Korea from the total of 200.000 for the dual Korea-Japan occupation area. 1 Before any divisions are sen 1 home the low point men wilt be screened out to remain with the [occupation forces replacing higl [point men from the units in the [field, general headquarters said As of January 1. the divisions tin the Pacific will be located follows: On Japan. 11 th tilth Airborne, First Cavalry. 77th 31st. 29th, 97th, 32nd. 41st. 24th, (98th and 33rd.

"South Dakota, with more pheasants than any other state, therefore, receives fewer shells than Illinois with only a sprinkling of birds." "Dribble" Of Shells Most local retailers of shells re- ported they have received only "dribbles" of shotgun ammuni- tion this season. Their supplies were often gone within a hal: hour after, .unpacking. Only a few lucky ones, therefore, were able to buy at the rate pf one box apiece. Local hunters, chafing at wha they 'consider discrimination, are expressing their wrath in no un certain terms.

As new shutdowns in the six- state soft: coal strike area forced additional thousands to the ranks of idle, bituminous operators and United Mine Workers Union rep- resentatives failed to agree on a compromise proposal' to end the 21-day expanding work stop- pages.

Report To Truman The secretary reported to Pres- ident Truman today on the dead- locked negotiations and said .the President sent a message to the conferees.
