Where the Deer and the Antelope Don't Play

Unna, Warren
March 1956
New Republic;3/5/56, Vol. 134 Issue 10, p15
This article discusses several issues related to wildlife refuges, their significance as a mineral resource, and oil leasing in the U.S. Interior Secretary Douglas Mckay's so-called "stop order" against private oil leasing on the national wildlife refuges--which was in effect between August 1953, and December 1955--was a bald euphemism. More leases were granted to private oil companies during the 28 months of "no" leases than in all the other 34 years of refuge history. The cry against the "give-away" of wildlife refuges began almost from the moment the Republicans came to power and the job of Fish and wildlife service director made subject to political appointment.
