Several matters of importance in the preservation and propagation of fish and game were taken up at a meeting of the executive committee of the Klamath County Sportsmen’s Association yesterday afternoon.

The question of reducing the limit for large fish, or to stop fishing from motor boats and boats propelled by kickers on the Upper lake, was considered.

Thousands of pounds of fish are taken each year near Rocky Point by persons fishing from motor boats. Most of these fish, it was said are salted or smoked and shipped from the county.

One instance was cited of a man who last year took 800 pounds of smoked fish home to Medford when he finished his vacation. Not knowing what to do with them he gave them to a butcher who sold them across his counter at the market price, 40 cents a pound. — Klamath Falls Herald.


The preliminary hearing of George Robins, the bogus check man captured last Saturday night, was held before Justice Taylor today on the charge of passing a $40 forged check on Jens Jensen. He was represented by his attorney, former County Prosecutor G. M. Roberts, and the state was represented by Assistant County Prosecutor George Codding. No defense was offered and Attorney Roberts did not even cross question the state’s witnesses. Robins was held to the grand jury on $1,000 bail. The charge against Robins of passing a forged $40 check on the Model Clothing company did not come up, and is being held in abeyance for the present.


The Hub will hold its semi-annual style show at the Nat this evening from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at which time this up-to-date establishment will show the latest in ladies’ ready-to-wear and shoes on living models. Easter comes early this year and with the sun shining, the birds singing and the trees about ready to burst into bud thoughts naturally turn to new spring togs and Mr. Hubbs assures the public that this display will be the best ever made by their store.

Alford’s orchestra will furnish music and all are cordially invited to be present.
