JERRY JAURON AND HIS DOGS Jauron Doesn't Like Shots So Close; Files Charges "Near Miss" For Warden While Guidincj Surveyors Ducking rifle bullets, as well as watching for game law violat- ers apparently has been added to the duties of Jerry Jauron of Earling, state conservation officer. Jauron, in Hrlan Wednesday, said he did not want to eomment on the matter for :publieatiort. However. reliable reports from other sources said two shots were fired close to his head last week while he was in a boat on the Missouri river near Modale in Harrison county. J, auron was re- ported to be acting as a guide for a survey party. And K. C. Acrea, Harrison county attorney who lives at Missouri Valley, confirmed that on May 9 Jauron signed an in- formation charging a man with ed agricultural development and use. "People don't seem to Under- stand that all we want to do is determine land to which we might file claim through the courts. We couldn't take any of the property in question with- out going through the courts," the official was quoted in the World.Herald. The Worlddierald quoted Bruce Stiles, state conservation director. as saying he had heard that some- body had fired a shot over the head of Jauron, but he consider- ed it "just a rumor" because Jam ron did not report the incident. The story also said that Stiles said Jauron is a game warden and has nothirtg to do with the survey. However, it was learned here that, although Jauron has no par in the survey, he was taking mem- bers of the survey party from island to island in  boat. The survey is being eondaacted for the conservation commission by Rob- inson Engineering Co., Waterloo. and Weaver Engineering Co.. Coming.
