"I am not In. politics," said W. I
Finley. State Game Warden, upon his
return yesterday from a six weeks' trip
through the East. "I am eager to re
tain my office,' but if I have to play
politics to hold It I don't want It."
Mr. Finley had been advised by tele
graph of the recent action of the State
Fish and Game Commission in rein
stating him in the office of game ward
en after he had held the minor position
of head of the "biological and educa
tional" department for eight months.
As he had not been officially advised
of the change in his office he did not
know yesterday what position he actu
ally held. .
Mr. Finley intimated that he will be
a candidate to succeed himself in the
game wardenship under the new state
administration, but declared that he
will not seek reappointment as a politi
Feathers Declared Sate.
' "If my record doesn't justify my re
taining the office I ought to be dis
charged anyway, regardless of pollt
tics," he said.
Mr. Finley straightened out yesterday
recent dubious Interpretations of the
game laws and announced that
birds of paradise may be worn as orna
ments on women's hats. Such plumage
. cannot be imported, but birds of para
dise feathers already in the country can
be worn with immunity, said Mr. Fin
ley. His announcement sets at rest
fears of some women that birds of para
dise were under the complete ban.
Mr. Finley went ESast at the request
of the Game Commission to study the
work of similar commissions In the var
ious states and to consult with the
United States Biological Survey heads
In Washington in regard to. the work
done by Oregon officials in co-operation
with that department last Sum
mer. He will submit his report at the
next meeting of the commission.
"One of the first problems that will
get attention," said Mr. Finley, "is the
extermination of jackrabbits in cer
tain parts of the state."
Fight on Rabbits Planned.
- The Biological Survey will detail
James Silvis and two assistants to come
out and co-operate with the state of
ficials in this work. Mr. Silvis is In
charge of rabbit Investigations.
"To make the task of Government ex
perts and the state warden successful,"
said Mr. Finley, "the co-operation of
the farmer is needed.
"The destruction of the coyote has
resulted In the increase of the rabbit.
By setting a bounty on coyotes we have
unbalanced nature's scheme and now
find that we require a bounty on rab
bits. To carry the policy out to a logi
cal conclusion we may as well put a
bounty on gophers, field mice and chip
munks with an ever-Increasing bounty
fund as a burden to the state. I do
Dot say that the bounty syBtem is with
out any merit, but its defects are ob
vious. An additional argument against
It lies in the fact that it is compara
tively easy to cheat the state in the
collection of bounties. Only systematic
destruction will give the best results
and $2000 or $3000 spent in this way
will be of greater benefit than a slmi
lar sum paid out in bounties." '
Oregon Pictures Shown.
Mr. Finley attended the convention
ef the American Fisheries Society and
also the National Association of Game
Wardens and Game Commissioners,
where he exhibited his moving pictures
and described the work of the Oregon
Commission. He found his moving pic
tures a remarkable success educational
ly and says that no other state has
taken a similar step. Sportsmen went
wild over the pictures of the bier fish
In the Rogue River and several of the
wealthy sportsmen of New York and
Boston declared it their intention to
organize parties and come to Oregon
He visited the game farms In a dozen
Castern states and studied the work of
the officials. His observations will be
embodied in a report which will be sub
jnitted to the State Game -Commission
at its next meeting. Mr. Finley says
In organization and warden service
New York and Wisconsin are well in
the lead, but Oregon stands first in
the establishment of game refuges, a
step which other states are striving
bard to follow.
Mr. Finley expressed the hope that
the present game laws, with a few ex-
ceptlons, will not suffer much change
at hands of the next Legislature. With
out the co-operation " of the public
nothing can be accomplished along the
line of gome conservation and a con
etant changing of the game laws leaves
the sportsman and farmer confused
With a consequent loss of interest,
which is one of the greatest obstacles
in the Dath of the fame warden.
The pictures of the fish car. Rain
bow, and the game farm at Corvallls
drew more calls for lectures than could
be fulfilled, said Mr. Finley, and the
Oregon Sportsman, a monthly booklet

tracted widespread interest.

menced with a small blotch
of pimples which turned into
a kind of rash and spread
rapidly. It itched and looked
red and sore for some time
and slightly swelled. A thin
fluid dripped and ran from
the sores which looked like
water. Then the swelling
would go down and it would keep on spread
ing. It bothered her during sleep and she
would be restless. It was a kind of eczema,
"She treated for some time and it did
not help her. It kept spreading larger and
deeper. Having always used Cuticura Soap
we told her to try it. so she got some Cuticura
Soap and Ointment and used them. She
washed the sore every day with the Cuticura
Soap and applied the Cuticura Ointment
three tunes a day. It was two months
when it was entirely gone." (Signed) Miss
