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 and Company. 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.
