Tells Coyote Work
By LA VERN BAKER
class under the super
vision of G. A. Corwin, motored out
to visit Mr. Knoblock last Friday
mnmintf in the bus. Adam Knob
lock, Boardman federal hunter of
Morrow county, is one of the best
and most picturesque of the United
States biological survey's predatory
animal killers. Adam said that the
coyote situation in Oregon is now
well in hand. The predatory animai
control has been established in this
state for about twenty years. Prior
to its establishment in this state
sheepmen estimated an annual loss
of 10 percent based on the total cen
sus of their flocks. Today figures
show that the loss has been reduced
to 1.1 percent. "Even with the loss
all over Oregon placed as low as 1.1
percent," said Adam, "the sum con
cerned is still tremendous, as Ore
gon's 2,382,500 sheep and goats are
valued at $25,000,000, which would
bring the annual coyote loss -in
money to $281,350. It should be re
membered, too, that these figures
concern sheep only and that the de
predation of coyotes on poultry and
game birds are impossible even to
estimate. The coyote is nature's
craftiest killer, a shrewd animal that
thrives in relatively thickly popu
lated areas. Oganized warfare on the
coyotet, such as is carried on by the
federal government, is the only way
to control them."

The allocation by the President of funds
for the construction of the Bonneville pro
ject was, in a large measure, due to the ac
tivities of Genral Martin while serving this
State as a member of the Congress.
Declaring that the project should be ad
ministered for the best interests of all the
people in the State, the Governor has, to
this end, pledged himself to co-operate with
the President and Administrator Ross in
every way possible.
It was largely through his efforts that
ship locks were included in the Bnneville
project thus making it possible for sea
going vessels to take on and deliver cargoes
as far up stream as The Dalles. He has
never ceased his fight for the canalization
of the Upper Columbia in order that the
grain growers and shippers of the Inland
Empire may enjoy such favorable rates as
are obtained through water competition.,
