Family Cat Great Menace to Birds

Lawrence, Kan., Nov. 16-- Prof. L. L. Dyche of the University of Kansas will recommend to the next legislature changes in the laws designed to protect birds from the family cat.

"I know of no greater enemy of the birds than the domestic cat," Prof. Dyche said today.  "Legislation to protect all birds except those classified as 'game' and 'outlaws' would save the farmers millions of dollars each year.  I believe it may be necessary to have a cat license law in Kansas."
