April 1 a a up president Roosevelt today intensified his close watch of european developments awaiting a Golf hitlers reply to the announcement of a britsh-fronch4palish Alliance. At the a Little White house�?T1 the president was within arms reach of a Telephone through which will come fresh reports from american embassies in London and Paris. From the temporary executive offices Here came fresh indication that president Roosevelt and his administration were determined to support France and great Britain in their Effort to Call a halt to nazi German dreams of world domination by Force. It was the View of president Roosevelt s intimates that world peace was being menaced. A White House spokesman disclosed that this government was gravely concerned lest German aspirations spread to the americas. At a Railroad Way station not far from the presidents Pine Mountain cottage. His special train was reported to be waiting for a hurried journey Back to Washington. Persons close to or. Roosevelt attributed to him the opinion that la in american republics were not Safe from the projected sphere of nazi influence. The chief executive will dedicate two new buildings of the warm Springs foundation both for the care of infantile paralysis sufferers this afternoon one is a school and the other a 35-bed infirmary. Both were built from private contributions. County sided by conservation Law National Road made Iii me Ary Between Northern Southern ones. One of the products of the last legislature was a new Law on wild animal conservation. A club Ling regulations for Hunting fur hearing animals. Info furthering the conservation of these wild animals the it ate was divided into two zones the Northern and the Southern the National Road being made the Boundary Between the two. This division of course cuts put Nuiji county in two parts which would not be important if it were not for the fact that in the Northern part of Putnam county the open season on these fyr bearing animal begins on november 15 and ends january 31, while the season in the Southern zone including the Southern part of Putnam county does not begin until november 25, closing january 31. This provision gives the fur trappers of South Putnam ten Days less time to make their seasonal catch than that of the trappers of North Putnam. Game Warden Victor Walter. Commenting a the unusual situation in that connection expressed the opinion he would have to exercise quite a bit of tact in enforcing the regulations if a Farmer with land on either Side of the National Road wants to trap on All his land he will have to work part of it at a time being careful on which Side of the Road he Hunts. The legislature also removed the ban on the Hunting of foxes making it Legal to Hunt both red and Grey foxes at any time during the year in Putnam county. The Grey Fox is not considered a fur bearing animal hut the red Fox remains in the fur bearing class and its Hunting is subject to nil conditions imposed upon the killing of animals with the exception of the removal of the closed season. The new Law on the subject places ii team county along with others in the Northern zone a of the state As regards Hunting red Fox. Before the t for the trapping purposes. Putnam had been in the Southern zone. In the Southern zone it will be Legal to Hunt the red Fox As Well As the Grey at any time luring the year until january 15, 1941, and after that Date the red Fox Only a Protection in the Southern zone but not in that Northern. Another restriction effected by the new game Laws is the prohibition of the running of dogs at night to Chase fur bearing animals bet wean the hours of Sunset and Sunrise during a period of fifteen Days prior to the open season m raccoons and similar fur bearing animals. 20 years it to in at a recent exhibit held at the University of Redlands prof Rowland a a aches pictures were shown in conjunction with the eight annual writer s week.
