MAY PROHIBIT HUNTING BY AIR Minnesotas game laws may have to be amended to protect its ducks and goose from a new menace. State game wardens are considering a suggestion that the legislature be asked to pass a bill this winter making it illegal to hunt feathered fowl from airplanes. Minnesota has turned out a great many aviators. It is understood that some of these airmen who observed the flight of ducks late this autumn decided that the modern hunter will travel in the air "bus." From casual discussion the possibility of such hunting has caused statewide attention. Game wardens lielieve that ducks and geese could bo slaughtered, bv Aviators. Therefore, there is a ios-sibility that the state legislature will forestall such hunting.
