Expenditures Of Authorized Acres To Be Acquired From 423 Land Plans to turn the Whitewater val- ley In Winona, Wnbnsha nnd Olm- stcd counties Into n vast game refugo and public hunting grounds nt art expenditure of n million dollars In the next 20 years hnve been npprov- od by tho United States Fish nnd Wildlife service, It was announced today in Washington. Under the plan, submitted by the Minnesota sonservntlon department, acres now owned by 423 own- ers, will be added to the present refuse, enlarging It to acres. Tlirec-fourtlis of the fund, esti- mated nt a million dollars, will provided by the federal government from Pittman-Robcrtson funds an- nually allotted to Minnesota. The re- mainder, one-fourth, will come from state conservation department funds. The Pi ttm an-Robertson fund is derived from a ten per cent federal Uix on firearms and ammunition. Minnesota Is one of the large recip- ients of thl.i fund annually. Boundaries established In the plan approved today by the Pish nnd Wildlife service include most of Whitewater river bottomlands nnd adjoining bluff (irons. The lower boundary of the refuse v.ll be nt thn mouth of the river ncnr Weav- er, and will extend up the river. In- cluding nil bottomlands beyond the village of Beaver. It will then extend up cnch of the Uirce branches ot the Whitewater, the south, middle, and north, toward their headwaters. To Acquire Feeder Gullies As has boon done with UN? pres- ent refuge, now including about 000 ncreii, lands along the blufr edges and up the feeder gullies will also be acquired. Farm buildings on the land will be removed, and the land, under system of development, will be al- lowed to revert to a wild state. Ex- tensive planting of trees nnd shrubs will take plnco to prevent futuro washing. The Whitewater valley In one of the heaviest eroded valleys :n Southeastern Minnesota.

The Republican majority has de- cided to Rive the inensurn priority over other civil rights bills. It wns President Truman's request for such legislation that stirred up a revolt, by .southern 13emocrntle. politicians. Another of the measures already Whitewater refuge, now acres, has been totaling acquired has bccMl cleared for possible action by the Senate. The Miles committee yesterday voted 7 ui 2 in favor of n House-approved bill which would outlaw the tax as a require- ment for voting in federal elections. Southern Democrats have threat- ened to filibuster ngninst passage of the nntl-l.vnchlng bin or other civil rights legislation. Similar bills have always been talked to death in the past. gradually, and experimental devel- opment plnns are now under -.ray under the supervision of Mat Saart and George employes assigned to the project. The land will be acquired ns rapidly as pos- sible for the expansion. Robert, R, Rutherford, chief of the Fish and Wildlife service, Plttman-Robcrtson section, stntcd today In Washington. It l.i hoped that the majority acreage can be acquired in the next years, however, a 20-year limit has been set to meet the various condi- tions that often develop in the ac- quiring of such lands in old settled areas, he added. The present refuge consists of strip 12 miles long acquired from. owners, in the center of the valley near Beaver. County Isonrds of commissioners of Wlnonn, Wabasho, nnd Olms'-ed counties nt meetings early this year approved the general plan, and as- sured the stnlfl and federal govern- ment of their full cooperation in tho development and purchase of tho refuge. Alrcndy the refuge has become a haven for gnmo birds, fur bearers, dcor, and other wildlife. The de- velopment Is expected to greatly Im- prove the trout fishing prospects ot the whole vnlley. Whitewater SUte park is also located In the area, n-s is the fish hatchery and rearing ponds nt Crystal Springs.
