Hams Butt Hinckley Mustangs In Final Quarter Morgene Hilton A real heart breaker of a game was played in Hinckley last Wednesday Wed-nesday night. It was between the Parowan Rams and the Hinckley Mustangs. This game meant so much to both teams and both showed their best in the playing of this game. The favorite comment was that it was played as well as college games. The teams just coudn't rhiss, and from any spot on the floor, the ball went through the hoop. The game up to the last guarter, was in Hinckley's favor, but the Rams came to an even keel with them, and even then it was a toss-up as to who the victor would be. The final score however was 59 to 60, in favor of Parowan. Benson was high point man of the game with 29 points and Ray mond Robinson was second with a total of 24.

Wildlife Federation Joins National Week Observation The West Millard Wildlife Fed eration will join the Utah Wildlife Federation and organized conser vationists throughout the country in observing National Wildlife Week from March 15 through 21, according to Les Welton, president. National Wildlife Week has been sponsored each year since 1938 by the National Wildlife Federation, Washington, D. C, a non-profit organization, in conjunction with its affiliates in 45 states. The federation fed-eration and affiliates represent more than 4,000,000 sportsmen and conservationists. Purpose of the week is to draw attention nationally to the need for united action in conserving and restoring America's dwindling natural resources, Mr. Welton said. The Utah Wildlife Federation is a statewide league of local conservation con-servation chapters or sportsmen's clubs. West Millard Wildlife Federation Fed-eration is the local affiliate. Each year the Federation chooses choos-es a threatened bird or mammal as the symbol of wasted resources. This year's symbol is the Prairie chicken, or pinnated grouse, once numerous from the Appalichians to the Rockies but now reduced to scattered remnants in about 15 midwestern and southwestern states. In an effort to protect the colorful color-ful bird from disappearance, the federation has named a committee commit-tee of experts to the National Committee on the Prairie Chicken, headed by R. A. Brown, Jr., attorney attorn-ey at St. Joseph, Mo., and former chairman of the Missouri Conservation Conser-vation Commission. In pointing to the need for united action in facing the nation's na-tion's conservation problems, Les Welton said that organization has accomplished many worthwhile things in the last 15 years. "For example, legislative milestones mile-stones like the Pittman-Robertson federal aid game law of 1936 and the similar Dingell- Johnson fisheries fisher-ies act of 1950 were passed by Congress only because there was national organized support behind them. "In addition to cooperating in conservation matters of statewide and nationl interest, local clubs carry on many projects to improve wildlife conditions, to better hunting hunt-ing and fishing, to encourage soil conservation and good farming. Many clubs do special work with 4-H clubs and other youth groups in a program of conservation activities." acti-vities." The National Wildlife Federation Federa-tion is financed through the sale of sheets of wildlife stamps in col or, issued annually. The state organization, or-ganization, like the local club, is financed by membership dues. National chairman for the week is Ed Dodd, popular wildlife artist and conservation leader. Author of the outdoors adventure strip, "Mark Trail," Mr. Dodd is also a lecturer and radio personality.
