1 U: 'ing after the "The spoonbill is a wading bird, ofJ eight species, related to the ibises, has a straight grooved bill a form heron-like, colorful plumage that is eddish, a iose. The bird is to be found in -. countries, in South America, the south Atlantic and Gulf states. As the roseate spoonbill has bMn reported seen in one or two other states, it should be easy for the government to declare it is an interstate creature entitled to the guardianship of the nation. This must be done soon if any are to be I left alive. "The killers seek the bird for the feathers, which are bootlegged out of the United States. It is against the law in this country to sell or export such plumage, and no woman with any humane in stincts would bedeck herself with the feathers torn from dead birds. Yet there is an illegal market for the plumage, the butchery continues, and government must battle to save the wild life against the human craze to destroy." Mr. Newell, an author, lecturer and I wild animal hunter, is leading the conser vation council to success. This, however, can be materially increased i.'." the people of Florida will give their utmost coopera tion in the preservation of Florida's natural resources. The council's plans merit cooperation, and the fore g oing editorial shows how absolutely necessary it is for Florida to enact laws that will throw all protection possible around these natural resources.

RETURNED UNC I MED c 0 p y M r L R obert s Everglades, Fla. Dear oy: F ebruary 2 19 37 I was lad t o get your letter as I could no t imagine ()'hat had h puened to you. It was n ecessary to hold your Dece mber check because of your silence regarding t h e $24. 0 0 dleck vrhich was sent for frei0ht ch r ges on the motor. I am no deducting out of the money that ls s till owed you and am sending this t o r Jolley to reimburse him for his vance. The remainde r I must hold unt.11 ano ther m atter is clea red u On October 18th you rented a boat from R Alexande r of Naples I t va s r Alexander's understanding that he as t o e t a dollar a -ay rent 1 for the boat and tha t it a s to be kept in repair. He st tes t h t you returned t he boat on October 2 9th \'Tit h the w ater hose connection burned up and the cylinder block cracked beyond repair. He esti mates that the cylinder block for this mode l of Kerm th en ine ill cost about $70.00. Alexnder feels that the Association should mAke godi. I do not recall that we authorized you to rent this bo t and, lthoug h I realize that you c11d so in an emergency, I see no e xcuse for returnin g it in such condition, d neith e r do I feel that we re responsible and should be r quired to make up for your ne gligence. Perhaps the A s sociation d oes owe Alexander $12.00 for rental, alt ho ugh such rental vi s not u thori zed by us, but 1 t seems t o me that t he dama g e d motor proposition is beteen you nd Alexander. I a m not going t o do anythin g about trli.s until Mr. Ba.Ker gets back from Tex a s 1 hich 1ill be next vee I will t hen s e he thinks vrn shoul d do 1eanwh1le, I m u s t h old t h e r emainder o f your salary until this thing is stra i ghtened out. I don' t lik e t o do this and k no w that you need t he but after all t h i s money is not m i ne and I am not ble t o d o as I please. It is contributed to t he Associ tion by members, who give to us out of their own pockets in good fith that e will put it t o the best use in protecting bird s Th erefore, we h...ve got to do hat e feel is the right t hing I feel sure that I will et t his matter stra i g hten e d out just s soon as pos 1 ble and forvrard to yo u such b alance as we feel is due you under the circumstance s With ersonal reg r ds, RPA :EM: Sincerely your s Robert P Allen, Sanctuary Director

c p y Na les, Fla May 1, 1937 Dear Mr. Allen: I rec. your letter in regards to my dee. salary. First I didn t figure t he night I run on t he sand bar tha t I was off uuty s I went to Naples t o see if I could a cylinder head gasket. Neither Ed nor Bud was with me as soon a s we rea c hed 1 rco both of them w s off someplace. If I t hem for any thing I could f i gure it me couple o f hours to find them. In regard to the hole that as stov e in the Bradley I d idn 1t do t his t all. Wasn t in the boat the B r d ley fas stolen out by a k i d and he stuck the hole in it. I d idn' t k no who did it for over a eek and it being a k i d you could do anyt hing i th him I h d Williams at the 1 ays to fix it took him bout thirty minutes In regards to t h e compass I vas talking wi t h Charlie Green fe' days back. He sav t he fellow that has the comp ss and toJ.d him he could k e e p the comp ss untill mRcker l fishing c S o ver. 1 r Allen, the man that has the comp ss did lots of good deads for the Society and s I d idn' t need the compas s I loaned it to h i m and Charlie and Bud c n get 1 t a t any time. In reg rds t o R Alexander s motor I ired t o your dress end it was ok t o g e t the bo a t or a t least Ed s a id. it was your adress but d idn' t g e t any ans. the wi r e a s sent on Sund y I kne you r>1ouldn' t be a t the office Lr. Allen, just short time befae that you gave me a t hority to get a small l a u nch untill the Bradley was re dy and I a s sure t h i s _ould be allrig h t and a g ain Bud d i d most a l l the runing of the motor. I sent him .nd Ed from Bu zard Key to Duck Roc k along the shore line I took the idgeon u p to Duck Roc k the did n't pump and Bud threw w ater on the manifold to keep the motor cool, not knov.ing this would cra c k the motor, and I certainly don' t feel justified payinb the bill. N r Allen, Ed is the guy tha t h a s wrote y o u all this. He is a trouble maker and a no good guy This you will flnd out if you k e e p him long enoug h H e put all he can in a gelnst anyone ellse but will be sure to k e ep his slate clean. Hr. Allen, I h ve no itness in this c ase and Ed Rayrnann ord is no good. He didn' t see any thing that he has w rote you. H e is guessing I 1 a s Capt. and in ch rge a n d M r Allen, I wouldn' t lie to you for the hundred dollar s I u sed s ixty dolla r s in gass for the Society and didn' t c rge them five cents. oy Heum o ed me t his amoun t on bo t and this w a s t h e r a y I h a d t o g t it. I paid all the telle g rams an d p hone calls to t he Cos t Guard in uselng t h e plane for looking the birds over. Didn' t char g e the Society five cents of it. I only sent one bill durin g the tim e I orked for them. That a s the gass I b o u ght in Ft. } !yers hen I !lent up there to look t h e birds over around there. I borrowed t he speed boat from Fred my brot he r She had about 20 gallons in it. I bou ht ten, paid $2.80

PAGE 30

' -' 2 -for it. P id C r l 5 dollars to g o with me, paid him, payed m y y t o I1Eyer s db d o llars. Sent the gas bill to Ar. S prunt, $ 2 .30. idn't get p i d for it, but didn' t mind it. M r Allen, you 1ill never get anothe r man that vill spend h i s mon e y like that I do n t t h ink ou vill get another man soon that can get t h e coopertion I co uld. I wish you could h apen dm n here some time and see t h e stool p igeon a t the night clubs. Then I don 1 t think you would h a v e so much f aith in him. You who I mean Ed. r. Allen, I must hav e my money so rill ite till I he r from t h i s letter. I w ant to be friends i t h t e Society if poss-1 ble. I knorr they will see t ings d ifferent i n ti e to com e I have made t h i s as clear as I kno how so vill say so lon best regards, L Roberts Box 78, N ples, F l a

l 1 I r. Rooert Allen -2-May 14, 1937 i I In this general opinion Carter concurs. I should lik e also to have Mr. 8akers approval before you go ahead. W e should now lose no opportunity to make clear to our own representatives and to supply houses the fact that the Association assumes responsibility for commitments of only certain definite types. The situation with which we are faced is not likely to happen frequently of course, because most of our wardens are men of stable character. RCM:RC ENCS Yours sincerely,

, ; Sill! iARY O F OUTSTANDil G FACTS IN THE CASE OF LEROY R. ROBERTS 1. L. R. Roberts was employed a s warden in the Everglades region of south Florida in 1930. At that time his father, C aptain W A. Roberts was c hief warden in that area. The elder Roberts was a pioneer settler in part of the state and had helped survey much of the region and\tlome of this survey 1ork his sons, R oy and Tom, assisted. The k nowledge of all t hese Roberts with respect to waterways a n d the l a r ge wading birds is w1ique. In 1932 the elder Roberts died of heart failure while on duty at Duck Rock, the largest bird roost on the coast. Roy succeeded a s c hief warden with v arious assistants and held this post until August 31, 1935 when it was necessary to discha r ge him for "excessive drinking absence from duty," etc. Trouble was experienced in finding warden personnel with knowledge of that region and on recom m end ation of S prunt and Allen, Roberts was a gain e mployed as of March 1, 1936 The previous delinquencies again occurred, however Also a t this time the Association a c quired its own boats and Roberts began to run up l a r ge repair bills for this equipment. T his situation grew worse and it was necessary to discharg e Roberts a second time, as of December 31, 1936 A number of item s were concerned with the reasonsfor Roberts dischar g e and because these involved claims for damages, unpaid bills etc., we held Roberts' December check ( $125) while these matters were investigated. Following i s a list of these items: a Check for $24.00 sent to Roberts on November 2 5,1936 to pay freigh t char ge s on new motor for the "Widgeon". Roberts cashed this c he ck and used it for o w n pu r poses. Manha ttan Mercantile Corporation paid freight cha rges of $24.10 ( Reimann letter of Jan.25,1936 a n d other corresp ondence in files, including letter from Roberts). b. Association paid bills amounting to $5 5 25 for repair of rudder post of 11Wid geon11 and purchase of new b atteries, which Warden Reimann claimed were damaged by Roberts when off duty. (R e imann letter to Allen from undated, but written about December 3 0 1 936 ) c. Association purchased new engine for "Guy Bradley" a t total cost of $355.66 to rep l ace original engine. Warden Reimann states old engine damaged by carelessness of Roberts. (Verbal report of Reimann to Sprunt and Reimann letter of November 1 8 1936 and subsequent correspondence).

a b c. d e -2-d Captain W A Alexander sent Association claim for $ 70 00 dama g e to motor of his boat rented by Roberts (Oct.18-29,193 6) plus $ 12 00 for rental, (Alexander letter of J anu ary 8 1937) Roberts rented boat from W A. Alexander without proper authority f rom Association. Dam g e was p r ob ably d one to m o tor on Roberts' own time. W ardens Reimann and Kirk advise Roberts responsibl e for damage done to motor, but think Assoc i ation should pay renta l (Reimann letter January 25, 1937). Alexander agreed to accep t $ 12 for rental and $ 35 in settlement for d amag e to moto r (Alexander letter A p ril 7, 1937). Association sent check for $47.00 to Alexander on A pril 1 2 1937 e The G & G Mercantile Compa ny sent Association claim for $ 6 0 .83 (bill dated J an uary 28, 19 37) for food purchased by Roberts on credit. G & G Company state they understood food w a s purchased on authority of Association. T h i s authority w a s not given by Association and purchase of food Roberts' own personal responsibility. Association offered to settle for one half amount of bill as good-will gesture. (Our letter of A pril 30 1 9 37) G & G de lcined, as king full settlement (Letter f r o m M r s R A Griffis, ay 6 1937). f Roberts w rote severa l letters (copies attached), asking for December check.

Our last letter to Roberts is d ated May D, 1937 (see co pies of correspondenc e attached). g Following expenses ( paid or claimed by creditors) are c hargeable directly or indirectly to Roberts' negli g en c e a s per previous data $24 00 55 2 5 355 66 47 0 0 60 .83 $ 542.74 C heck for freight charges appropriated by Roberts Repair on Widgeon of damage by Roberts Replacement of motor damaged by Roberts.
