Ronda Man Wins
' In Pelt Contest
Paul R. Wooten, of Ronda, la
a winner of a Dally ^ward for
correct pelt handling in the
Twentieth National Pur Show
conducted by the Raw Fur Mar
keting Service of Sears, Roebuck
A carefully handled pelt
brought this trapper one of the
$5.00 Dally Awards, as a result
of Its being judged one of the
three best handled skins among
all pelts received at Sears Raw
Fur Marketing Station in Phila
delphia, Pa. This pelt Is now
eligible to consideration for one
of the major awards, including
the $2,000 First Award, to be se
lected at the final judging, Which
will be held in April.
Correct pelt handling — the
prime purpose of the Fur Show—
has proved to be of vital import
ance to trappers due to the fact
that millions of dollars were for-'
pierly wasted through careless,
^ncorrect skinning, stretching and
drying of furs—dollars which
Sould readily have gone into the
rappers' pockets instead of being
oast to the winds. Well-prepared
jtelts command more money than
Joorly handled ones—thus • in
creasing not alone the earnings
ct the trappers, but the value of
our country's natural resources.
Spars Fur Show was established
to stress the point, and, thus, to
encourage correct pelt-handling.
' This season's ZOth National
J|ur Show Awards offers new,
atlded awards totalling $8,840.00
if cash, Including 918 Daily
Awards, twenty (instead of ten)
Major Awards, topped by an eag
erly sought-after $2,000.00 First
Award—plus twelve Sectional
Awards for complete fur ship
ments. All awards are for pelt
handling only, not kind or value
of skin. Every pelt shipped to
Sears, (luring the term of the Fnr
Show, Is automatically consider
ed for < ne or more awards.
Airplane hitchhiking by in
sect pests has become a serious
problem as more and more air
lines hare been opened to connect
the United States with other
