Waterfowl Hunting Outlook Bright
For This Fall, Survey Indicates
By JANE EADS
WASHINGTON It looks like
good hunting this fall. Slight In
creases In the population of wild
ducks, geese, swan, coot and oth
er waterfowl are being recorded
by the U. S. Fun and Wildlife
Service, which has surveyed the
birds' wintering and breeding ar
eas. The Service's winter Inventory
showed that, while the overall
increase in all waterfowl was
only one percent, the tncr in
ducks was about 12 percent over
last year. Current surveys of
breeding grounds in the north in
dicate an .improved flight
Just how many birds hunters
may shoot each season is deter
mined on the basis of an esti
mated waterfowl population, the
number of prospective hunters,
weather conditions and other
things. Waterfowl population is
determined by studies of fly
ways In four sections of the coun
try over which the birds migrate
back and forth. Eight airplanes
carrying two biologists, one of
whom is a pilot, fly about 40
miles over the same areas each
year. At a height of 75 to 100
feet above ground the men are
able to count the birds in the
wintering areas and make their
estimates on the basis of com
parisons with counts of other

made of breeding areas in the
northern part of the hemisphere,
as far north as the Arctic. This is
done also by airplanes, automo
biles, boats, canoes and on foot.
The men go out, first count ducks
In pairs, find the birds' nests,
note how many eggs are laid,
how many hatched, what the av
erage brood size of each bird is
at hatching time and at the time
they are able to fly. This way
they get a pretty good Idea how
many birds will be flying south
Canadian wildlife groups work
with the United States biologists.
Conditions in breeding grounds
vary each year, says Cecil Wil
liams, in charge of this govern
ment's waterfowl management
investigations. For instance this
year, he told me, Alberta and
Saskatchewan areas suffered a
severe drought. Birds which for
merly sought nesting places
there settled elsewhere, mostly
in the parkland regions of Mani
toba. A new mission was sent out
this year to study the Ungava
peninsula, in the Labrador re
gions to determine its importance
as a producing area for water
fowl. Mr. Williams said not many
ducks were found, but Fish and
Wildlife biologists Carl Ecklund
and Leon Cool found quite a num
ber of geese.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 11
Flora is expecting.
What makes it news Is that
Flora is an elephant aboard the
American President lines
freighter President Taft, five
days out of Yokohama.
The vessel's skipper, Capt. W.
S. Tyrrell, retreated into silence
after messaging laconically that
Flora's monumental labor was
not far off.
The Taft Is due here next Tues
day with a load of animals for
the Los Angeles loo. There was
every indication Flora would be
a mama before then.
Carey Baldwin, director of the
San Francisco zoo, expressed
fear Flora and her offspring
might be "killed with kindness."
"It's tricky business, but all
they have to do is to leave Flora
alone and give her plenty of pri
vacy and she'll have her baby
Once born, the baby should be
taken from the mother. Baldwin
said, because sometimes mother
elephants "exhibit matricidal
tendencies." The calf should be;
bottle-fed, he said.
New Council Of Europe Splits On
Proposed Admittance Of Germans
Tnyr.. Aug. 11. 1949 The Newt-Review, koteburg, Or. 3
By FRANK. O'BRIEN.
STRASBOURG, France. Aug.
11. LP Former French Premier
Edouard Herroit declares a di
vision of minds exists on the
question of admitting Germans to
the new Council of Europe.
In a prepared address to the
opening session of the Council's
consultative assembly Herrlot in
dicated Western Germany would
have to work her wav into the
organization with proofs that she
no longer harbors aggressive in
tentions. He told the 101 delegates from
12 nations that the assembly
would deal with "problems of life
and death" for Europe.
"A closer association of Eu
rope presents itself as a matter
of urgency." he said.
Many political leaders of west
ern Europe hope that the discus
sions here will mark a long ad
vance toward the goal at full uni
ty of that portion of Europe out
side the Soviet orbit
There have been proposals to
Include Western Germany in the
organization as soon as the new
West German government li
functioning. It was thought that
Herriot's statement on the ques
lon perhaps reflected the point
of view of the French delegation.
France has a deep-seated fear of
German aggression based on ex
periences of history.
Herrlot, a leader in the move
ment for European unity, paid
special tribute Jo V.'!n.;on
Churchill, declaring: "From his
mind sprang Ihe movement
which has brought us together
here." Churchill, one of the Bri
tish Parliamentary delegates.
