""PR MOLf AlP FSTABUSHED 1802 E.I.Du PONT DIC NEMOURS& COMPANY SMOKELESS POWDER DEPARTMENT WILMINGTON, DELAWARE SPORTING POWDER DIVISION July 25s 1929 Mr. Aldo Leopold 421 Chemistry Bldg. (U.W.) Madison, Wisconsin My dear Leopold: Heyward has Just come up from his district in the south and has brought some interesting figures on the take of game in Virginia and a comparison of the seasons 1927-28 with 1928-29. I am copying the figures on this take for you. These are advance figures, as far as '28 and '29 are concerned and should not be publicized until Virginia has had an opportunity of publishing them her self. The interest- ing part of this report is that the increase of game in Virginia, with the exception of woodcock, clapper rail and snipe, has been entirely in the migratory bird class. All native game, except some species usually trapped, show a decrease, This result is somewhat interesting inasmuch as Virginia has a rather progressive game administration and is doing some good work. Of course at this distance it Is impractical to draw any conclusions from these reports because of the fact that the decrease this year may be due more largely to a better censto system than anything else. With further reference to my suggestion with . . 2.. 4- i.4 44 ~ J 4.1. -4 +4 & (6.a V Xft LIUS J4 J.JUU. I#UaI, prJ.actica~.l.ly I DCUU dW L ww" %0 obtains in North Carolina, that 0ol. Harrison, a new man in charge of the Commission, appears progressive and active and is looking for advice. He does not know very much of what is going on and might, of course, carry out any suggestions that you care to offer. This entirely for your information and such action as you might care to take, as I do not know in any way the practicability of your carrying out any sug- gestions I may have made. tfa .A - a - - nflt* -,T.I' q$ hAT.T.1LM~ *&. - A V Y SST.,.-, T.
