Catinue to develop hunter - landowner relation- ships." To close he paid tribute to a sportsman we all know by reading the following poem: THE MAN WHO CLEANS THE FISH There's one in every group and clan A willing, happy-hearted man Who gets the wood and lights the fires, First quits his bed ld last re- tires; He makes the coffee, fries the ham And opens every can of jam. And while a round of cards we play He cleans the fish we caught that day. The most of us who fishing go But little of the burdens know. We proudly talk in easy chairs Of rods and reels and lures and snares And where the speckled beaut- ies lurk. We love the sport, but not the work. But he knows best what fishing means Who does the work behind the scenes. Give him a knife and board and pail And every fish we catch, he'll scale. While we go in and bathe and dress, He cleans the evening supper mess. Beside the river's edge he stays To earn our everlasting praise He says, "Do anything you wish, I'll get to work and clean the District Power Co., Ashland, Wis.; Minnesota Power & Light Co., Duluth; Minnkota Power Co-operative, Grand Forks, N.
