Hunters Do Not Need to Kill
Female; Bucks Arc
The iirst week of Pennsylvania's
deer season of 1918 has been marked
by so many reports of killing of
does that game protectors and men
who have been engaged either for
special services or as volunteers to
prevent violations have been in
structed to follow up every case and
make prompt arrests. In some sec
tions reports of half a dozen does
being killed have turned up, most
of the killings being due to care
"The reports coming in of killing
of does are most regrettable," said
Dr. Joseph Kalbfus, secretary of the
State Game Commission. "The deer
season has another week to go and
there are plenty of bucks. People
do not need to shoot does. We in
tend to prosecute every case that we
can because the law to protect the
does wus one of the best for sports
men and the man who kills a female
deer deserves all the punishment he
can be given."
Dr. Kalbfus got a report a day or
so ago of a man appearing at the
office of a man connected with the
gume commission and announcing
that he had killed a big bull elk in
mistake for a giant deer. He was
so frank about it and explained his
mistake that he was let go with the
tine that the law requires. There
was nothing else to do.
Many deer are being killed and
some-tine bucks are reported shot
in the first few days at well-known
camps. Deer have been numerous
and have gone close to camps.
Reports have also come of the kill
ing of more bears than usual in the
northern counties. These reports
show that good-sized bears were
"There were many ring-necked
pheasants shot this fall and it is
due to the propagation plans we
have followed out. Where the birds
were released and looked after they
were to be found. It was the same
with quail, but there was more
pheasant shooting than for a long
time in some parts of the state,"
says Dr. Kalbfus. "It will be some
time before we get in all the reports
but I am satisfied that we had the
best wild turkey shooting in a long
time, probably the best ever known
in the state. There were lots of the
birds and the hunters went after
them," Dr. Kalbfus commented.
Fully a third of the arrests made
lately by state game protectors have
been for violations of the game
code. In the summer time the
prosecutions were mainly aliens for
possessing firearms, a drive being
made in this direction as a war
time measure, but now the arrests
are for violations of the game laws
and some flagrant instances have
been reported. From fifteen to
twenty arrests have been reported
for killing grouse on which there is
an absolutely closed season and the
men arrested for this offense ap
peared to think that they were be
ing discriminated ugainst in spite of
the state-wide effort to protect the
I As a general rule, however, there
have been many sportsmen who
have gone out of their way to see
that grouse are not disturbed.
Quite a few instances have come to
light where sections where grouse
are known to be has been marked
and not entered by hunters.
The number of licenses issued
is one of the notable things about
the hunting season which is draw
ing to a close. The number fs
close to that of last season and all
estimates that there would be a
drop because of the number of men
in the army have gone awry. In
the southwestern part of the state
almost every county has run ahead
of the number of licenses issued a
year ago, the lower Susquehanna
valley counties being up in the 10,-
000 class. The total number of li
censes issued in Pennsylvania this
year will be an interesting table.
Wild migratory birds other than
game birds seem to have materially
increased in Pennsylvania during
the last year, except the bluebirds
which were hard hit by the severe
winter. The weather is also blamed
for the scarcity of rabbits. The in
crease in wild turkeys in the face of
the terrible cold and deep snows of
last winter is due ilrst to the closed
season eight years ago and the feed
ing of the birds by game protectors
and sportsmen and others who were
supplied with funds from the license
revenue for the purpose.

to Inspect the defenses of that sys

was directed against what was prob

Health Department Will Take
Steps to Ascertqjn Influ
enza Expense
I Steps to ascertain Just what the
recent Influenza epidemic cost the
Keystone state will be undertaken
within the next week by the State '
Department of Health in the form
of a survey which will reach into all
activities in communities. It will
be launched just as soon as the
questionnaires regarding the num-1
bcr of children that have been left
orphans or partly orphaned by the
plauge are received and will go
into social, economic and other
phases. The public cost will
be ascertained through official
chann els and and of various
organizations will be sought. Peo
ple at the Capitol say that the sur
vey will be the iirst of the kind ever
attempted in the country.
A statement issued at the Depart
ment of Health says: "Professor
J. P. Lichtenberger of the Wharton
School of the University of Pennsyl
vania has been engaged to under
take this work and a lprge corps of
clerks, stenographers' and other
officers of the State Department of
Health have been designated to co
operate in gathering the data neces
sary to determine this cost. Inquir
ies will be sent out durigg -the com
ing week to physicians, health offi
cers, undertakers and nurses and
later to the heads of various busi
nesses and industries. Careful esti
mates as to the loss of life in the
various age groups and in various
occupations will be made. Esti
mates as to the duration of fatal
and nonfatal illness with the loss
of earning capacity will also be
worked out in detail. The cost in
actual loss of life will be determined
in the various age groups and even
details as to the oost of burial will
be carefully itemized together with
a tabulation including loss of time
of friends and relatives attending
"Studies will be made as to the
cost of nursing, doctors' fees and
medication. Business losses in the
line of production, mining, manu
facturing, transportation, retail
business, theaters, saloons, hotels
and restaurants, and finally a tabu
lation will be made of the expendi
tures made by the State Department
of Health in association with other
state agencies and by the local
boards of health and local commit
tees in charge of emergency hos
pitals. If possible the losses in pub
lic education will also be deter
mined and a method will be worked
put for ascertaining the per capita
cost of the epidemic.
"Professor Lichtenberger has al
ready begun this important work
and the results of his investigation
will be made known from time to
time as fast as the data is received
and compiled. When the work is
completed a full report will be
made public.
"Dr. B. Franklin Royer, acting
Commissioner of Health, asks that
all citizens of Pennsylvania who re
ceive letters from the department
asking for information and data
concerning the cost of the epidemic
will please co-operate with the de

this information as completely as
possible and without unnecessary
Labor Board Rebukes
Bethlehem Steel Co.
York, Dec. 9.—The 'National
war labor boafd made public here
last night an order denying: the re
quest of the Bethlehem Steel Company
that the board's examiners be with
drawn from the company's machine
shops, and that it be permitted to
"make the necessary arrangements
of our working forces to meet the
new peacetime conditions."
The order, which was in the form
of a letter to IS. G. Grace, president
of the 'Bethlehem Steel Company, is
signed by William Howard Taft and
Basil M. Manley, Joint chairmen of
the board. It takes sharp issue with
Mr. Grace's statement that the com
pany is "unable to adopt" the finding
of the examiners In favor of the ma
chine shop employes, "as it was pre
ceded by the cessation of hostilities."
The board characterized his letter
as "a refusal to respect the authority
of the war labor board," which, it is
declared, will continue until Presi
dent Wilson proclaims the signing of
the peace treaties, and insists that
its findings be carried out "fully and
promptly." ' i
Mr. Grace's attitude, the board held,
invoices the good faith not bnly of
the Bethlehem Steel Company, but of
the goverment as well.
Asserting that its action %> assum
ing supervision of labor problems at
the Bethlehem plant resulted from
representations of war department
officials that "conditions in the Beth
lehem Steel Company were greatly en
dangering the successful prosecution
of the war," the board said it ex
erted every resource to keep the men
at work. Mr. Grace, it was said, per
sonally approved a system of col
lective bargaining which' brought
about greater industrial effort on title
part of the workers.
"You now wish to repudiate that
system' of collective bargaining," the
communication says, "and ask that
the board's xemalners be withdrawn."
"The findings of the board do not
require you to continue in your em
ployment any man whose services
are no longer needed becauso of the
cancellation *of war contracts. The
board does require, however, that you
carry out in good faith the findings
of the board upon the basis of which
your employes consented 'to remain
at work, and thus maintained the
production and profits of your com
"If the award should now be repu
diated your workmen would liavo
every reason to feel that they had
been deceived and grossly imposed
upon by the company, by the war
labor board and by other govern
ment officials who persuaded them
to remain at work on the assurance
that they would be justly dealt with."

400,000 DOGS
Thousands Killed When Own

sary License Fee
! made at the State
Th o us a n da of
dogs whose owners' did not pay li
cense on them or who were with
out owners were shot, especially in
the sheep-raising counties.
The code placed the enforcement
in the hands of the Secretary of
Agriculture and early this year it
was necessary to call in state police
to shoot dogs where local constables
and officers refused to kill the un
licensed animals and to prosecute
owners and keepers of dogs who
would not secure licenses. Some of
th* constables were also arrested.
These steps together with the move
ment among farmers to increase the
number of sheep in the state brought
about a change In sentiment and
twice the number of dogs licensed
last year were registered. In some
of the sheep counties ownerless dogs
which menaced flocks of sheep were
hunted down.
