It got just plenty cool, but the heauti- lhl star display with a coyote chorus serenade that brought back memories of eampouts on the Redwater River when I was a kid made it a night to be re- membered with pleasure. Sunday morning it was sau- sage and pancakes withplenty of syrup and coffee, wtnorushto spoil the leisurely morning.

The trail consisted of pas- tures, with all the fall colors, flten up and over steep narrow trails into badlands scenery, deep canyons and ronghbreaks.

Friends Of Coyotes 'Hc,wl' By ROBERT E, M;LLER Montana Press Association Enemies of the e had their inning in a hearing before the Montana Fish and Gam Commission Sept, 25. Now it's time for friends of the COyote to have their say on Oct. 19. The issue is whether the Fish and Game Department sbeuld continue its corlbuon 0f0,- 000 ayear to the state's preda- tor control prram. The com- mission has voted to withhold its usual contribution until a is completed of the en- The statemem noted thatpre- daters do affect remnat popula- tions of wildlife or newly intro- duced species, but it said that control efforts should be aimed at particular animals doing damage and not at entire spe- cies. One of the commlss/oners, Robert Smmo.s, a Great Falls lawyer, said that in view of the statement, a further contribu- tion by the department to pre- dater control might be illegal. Testit before the com- mission in favor of eont'med an assertion that coyotes are also preying on the antelope population, a spokesman for the Fish and Gam Department replied that such predation is a part of the natural mortality rate for wildlife and has little effect on total numbers. In the meantime, the Federal Bureau of Land Managernem .has aonouneed a more stringent policy on the use of predator control measures on lands it administers. Ranchers have been told there will be no control atrthorized without written requests which Fall has arrived. Another grazing season is drawing to a close. Our rangelands are being deserted for Lhe winter. The cows are going home. Some of these vacated pas- tures have quite a bit of old grass left on them. It sways in the autumn breezes. R seems to wave to passers-by. Have you noticed oldgrasson a grazed pasture waving atyou? What kind of a story did it tell you? A pasture which has quite a bit of grass left after the graz- ing season is ended can cream a variety of opinions about the rancher who left the grass. "A feller who'd leave good grass like that is plumb Ioco," Sam says. "He' s a poor operator," Slim opines. "He's not taking advan- tage of all of hi s possibilities for profit." "The poor devil probably has- n't got enough stock to use all of his grass," Mac riggers. "He should buy more cows sohe cam clean it up." "He's doing a mighty fine job of range management," Bob reckons. That's quite an asset:mentor conclusions. Who' s right?. Some folks are scandalized when they see good grass ap- Safeway Notes Year's Earnings Safeway Stores, Incorporat- ed, reported increases in both sales and earnings for the first 36 weeks of 1971. According to Safeway Presi- dent, W. S. Mitchell, consolidat- ed unaudited sales for the 36 weeks ended Sept. 11, 1971, were $3,651,367,000, an in- crease of 13 per centover sales of $3,236,432,000, in the com- parable period of 1970. Consolidated, unaudited net "After all, the only way that grass will make money is on a cow," these folks will say. "That man cOUld have put sev- eral more pounds ofmeatonhis critters if he's let themeat that grass." The man whoknowsgrass and cows, however, will nod approv- ingly. When he sees such apas- ture he's apt to say: "The fellow who owns that range is going to beinthe cattle business for a long time.'" Old grassis a sign of a healthy range. Grass isproperlyusedif about half of the current year' s growth is given to the cow. The half that the cows leave is the soil's share of tl-dsyear'scrop. It is also the half that main- tains the grass in a vigorOUs and productive condition. If a grass plant loses mere than half of its growth during the spring and summer, the roots stiffer. They cannot grow normally. They become stunted and cannot furnish water and nutrients to the Plant. The plant becomes weak and cannot pro- duce the amount of leaves that it should. If overgrazing conUnuesyear after year, the plantdies. Poor- er grasses and weeds eventual- ly come in and the production of the pasture rapidly decreas- es.
