Abstract:
A recently completed boating survey shows that although the total number of boating accidents in the state was up slightly in 1961, the number of accidents occurring while the operators were fishing was reduced from 21 percent to 2 percent. This marked reduction may reflect a growing awareness that as the waterways become more crowded, more attention must be given to water safety. Arrington discusses when and where boating accidents happened in 1961; what the boat operators were doing and their age and experience; causes of the accidents; and what can be done to improve safety.

Few people have the time it takes to capture, tame, train, and hunt falcons. North Carolina games laws do not permit the taking of game birds or protected birds by means other than those listed in the hunting regulations. While falcons can be used within the state, they can be legally used only on unprotected species.
