EDITORIAL What has happened to our wild life in this modern day of civilization? Each month the State and Federal Governments spend thousands of dol- lars to replace the wild life. Each state along with the Federal Govern- ment, has i.ts fish hatcheries, bird farms and reserved territories for wild animals. No matter into what part of the country you go, you find a part of the human race chiseling on the other part that is doing .them a favor. The "hog- hunter" is a very good example of this. The governments are glad to re- place the gmne taken by the reaI sportsman, but what should they do about that taken by ,the "hog-hunter"? He not only takes his share, but some for his friends (which never reach the friends.) The land that the game found shel- ter in is the part now under cultiva- tion. The small ditches where, lbe trees and shrubs were a perfect shel- ter from the enemy, are now level and planted with grain. This is pushing thousands of game into small areas and it is impossible .for them to sur- vive. It is a good case of the survival of the fittest. The "hog-hunter" of today is spoil- ing the sport for the true sportsman of tomorrow.--Philip Conrad.

He is expected to return to his home within a short time. This welcome fact must have been caused by the flowers and good wishes sent to him .by the stri- dent body and other school organiza- tions. More flowers have been or- dered and they will stately make him well in';a hurry.. To keep Mr. Reece amused until his hoped-for return, about the last of the school year,, any letters to his Long Beacfi home, at 902 Maine street, would probably be appreciated~ A. H~ S.
