Shannon said wardens re- ported the law was practically Henry Clineschmidt of Redding. Clineschmidt, who is mostly a trout fisherman and deer and bear shooter, said he doesn't hunt ducks much. But he said he hunted on three Sacramento Valley clubs last year and found violations of the transport rule on each occasion. While this corner has opposed the duck transport rule consist- ently, it has to be admitted the three commissioners who voted to keep it had an honest dif- ference in opinions• They were Commissioners Tom Sacramento; Dante blomelUni Stockton; and William Elser San Diego. Smith said the big majority of duck hunters were honorable but there were a few who would use every advantage in order to break the law. Richards' lea- could really use.

With the help of .the visiting park officials, a rope tow has already been acquired, according to Dr. Hilly Hopkins, this year's president of the Plumas Club. Dr. Hopkins said the additional tow will extend another 500 or more feet up the sides of the snow "bowl", increasing the snow sports area to more than double its past capacity. The Plumas Ski Club president reported during the meeting that through cooperation at Harvey West Jr., of Graeagle and R. N. Cole of Quincy, the club had been able to hire, at a very nominal rental, a large bulldozer to clear the new area, which is not ready for the instalaltion of the addi- tional tow. The two tows to be operated, Dr. Hopkins said, will carry skiers more than a quarter mile up the sides of a really spec- tacular skiing area. Special permit to cover the Ski Club's operation has been request- ed of the State Division of Beach- es and Parks.

Johnston and Orville Brown, of Quincy. thers ruffled a bit on this part of the discussion. "It sort of burns me up to have the commission sit around and talk as though every duck hunt- er is an outlaw," Richards said. "I think that basically duck hunters are honest men. You have some outlaws but I don't like to hear it said that all duck hunters are a bunch of bandits." Support of the duck clubs for the retention of the rule was STOP; HAVE YOU HEARD?

Spokesmen for duck clubs said the duck transport rule was important in California because gunners had to drive long dis. tances to hunt.
