Durbin – Congressman Jennings Randolph has accepted an invitation to address the Upper Pocahontas County Sportsmen’s Association at their banquet meeting to be held at the Greenbank High School Gym October 19. His subject will be “The Natural and Human Resources of America.”
In reply to the invitation, Congressman Randolph said:
“I desire to commend your organization for the good work you are doing. I shall embrace within my speech a plea for selective cutting and conservation of forest resources, the need for a comprehensive development program for restocking of streams and propagation of wildlife. I shall also indicate opportunities and responsibilities which we have, as West Virginians, to make our mountain area more attractive to tourists and visitors who increasingly will come to our state for recreation and wholesome sport.”
