Uiraa maalaa ll.ia FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT By CHARLES V. STANTON Will the Umpqua river enjoy a big run of silverside salmon in the fall of 1950? Biologists find hopeful indications. Tally of silverside salmon at the Winchester counting station shows an unusually high percentage of jacks. The jack is a male salmon migrating ahead of his normal four year cycle. Presence of more than average numbers of jack salmon Indicates that the 1951 migration, from which these fish come, is larger than normal, according to Ross New comb, game department resident biologist, although the 1947 migration dropped to 1010 fish, which would normally presage a decrease next year. Biologists have been making a study of forecasts based on jack salmon percentages, Newcomb says, but so far, while evidence is on the favorable side, the theory is too new for acceptance as a proven fact. But it is believed that a high percentage of jacks presages an increased run the following year. At least, biologists will be watching next year's silverside run for further proof of the theory. Here's another interesting question : What effect has removal of commercial fishing intensity had on salmon migration ? The answer to that question is still several years in the future, but we have a "straw in the wind" to be used as a basis for guesswork. In 1946, the first year silverside salmon were tallied at the Winchester counting station, 1379 adults went over the board prior to Dec. 15. This is the return year of the 1946 migration and the Winchester count for the comparable period stands at 1330, or 49 fish less than in 1946. Thus the run, has, at least, reproduced itself. But other factors point to a much better condition. The migration this year, due to low and warm water, was extremely late. Many fish, which might otherwise have gone through the Winchester counting station, did not . come into the river in time to reach the upper waters. Check of spawning beds in the lower river show four times as many salmon on those beds as observed in any previous year. Thus it is evident that the 1946 migration not only reproduced itself but made a substantial gain and, in addition, will, given normal conditions during the next four years, produce a much larger migration for the suc ceeding cycle. There is every reason to believe, therefore, that the re moval of commercial fishing intensity will show a very beneficial effect on future salmon migrations. Winchester Bay Sports Fishery The biologists also have some interesting figures on the Winchester Bay sports fishery of the past season. The study shows 18,107 sports anglers making 7,243 boat trips and taking 4,913 salmon, totalling 58,665 pounds. The chinook salmon catch included 1,153 fish totalling 24,152 pounds, an average of 21 pounds per fish, and 3,760 silverside salmon, totalling 34,513 pounds, an average of 9 pounds per fish. Breaking these figures down into individual records, gives an average of 2Vi fishermen per boat, three-tenths of a fish for each fisherman, or 3'4 pounds per fisherman. Checks of equipment show that the average fisherman had a capital investment of $416 in gear, boats, motors, camping equipment, etc., or more than $7Vi million spent in outfitting for recreation. Studies have not been made to dale into the actual return to communities of the lower river from the Winchester Bay sports fishery, but some of the businessmen in that area have made unofficial estimntes that profits obtained from sports anglers during the Winchester Bay season amounted to around $2Vj million. Investments in new camp ground facilities, stores, theater, and other businesses catering to the sports fishery at Win chester Bay during the year will add from $100,000 to $150,000 to the county's assessed valuation. The Winchester Bay area probably will have twice as many visitors next year as were present during the past season. When a person begins to digest these figures, it is ob vious that money spent to develop receational facilities within the county is good, sound business, reflected in increased tax revenue. o .

He says in a dispatch: "The saddest phase of this fare well to Shanghai was wrapped up in a small group of Chinese who saw us to the ship with their brave bouquets of flowers for the departing foreigners DESPITE THE GLOWERING DIS APPROVAL OF COMMUNIST GUARDS." He goes on: "This group of Chinese seemed to me to represent the beginning of a solid middle class in China which could have grown and brought greatness to China. They were the product of Shanghai. They had absorbed the best of the West and mixed it compatibly with their Oriental natures. 'They had modest but good homes. Their children were in school. They had learned profes sions and trades. They could earn enough at them to maintain themselves with pride and de cency. And they had done it ON THEIR OWN. NO kin ties with the rich. No political connections. No special privileges except their own abilities." RED then adds: "Now they are OUT OF WORK. The gates of their profes sions and trades are closed to them unless they can somehow get into the PARTY MACHINE and wear grotesque cotton uni forms, send their kids to the 'cor rect' schools and live on a few dollars a month and a regi mented rice allowance.

Four lovely young girls liked to help their mother in theory. But Saturday morning had become a time their mother dreaded. "They squabble about who is do ing more than the other. They fuss about who Is to do which job. I declare I'd rather do it all myself and let them go and play tennis or whatever Is on their minds. . . " But of course that would not be blessing her daughters, would it! Although they at the moment might think so, adolescents being a bit allergic to home duties at times. So my friend wrote the tasks, one on each slip of paper, folded, and put the slips in a box. "Now, girls," she said, "the tasks on the slips of paper in this box must be done before any girj leaves the house this morning. It's on the idea of forfeits. You draw a slip, and you are on your honor to DO what is on the slip. When the box is empty you may help whoever Is still working or just stand and watch her fin ish. But you all leave at the same time." It worked. Really it did! It made a game out o what had seemed dreary routine. The mo ther had used Imagination!

The job was to move a lot of round boulders that had been hauled from the beach a hun dred miles down the coast. Dad wanted the space the rocks were taking; he left word just where they were to be piled. The boys were resentful they wanted to play first and move rocks later. . . An ' idea saved the situation. I put a big tin pail on the spot where the rocks were to be. Invited the boys to count points or each rock that went in the pail (those that missed had been moved, took!) and believe It or not, they turned to on that pile of rocks and had a grand time ... In fact, to get more points they put the pail where the rocks had been and actually began to pitch the rocks BACK again! Boys! . . Savings Bond Sales Increase In November County Chairman, H. O.

New Ointment For Burns Comes From Beef Aorta DETROIT W) A protein ointment for burns enveloped by a Detroit physician was reported to have been used successfully on 500 patients at Children's hospi tal here. The ointment is called "Epl thene and is a product of the Wil son laboratories in Chicaeo. Its discovery was reported to the medical profession about seven years ago and since then it has been used in clinical tests here. Dr. C. H. Chase, who developed it, said he expected it to become more widely used as result of successful use here. He himself nas used It with good results in industrial cases here, he said. Dr. C. N. Weller, a member of the Wayne university medical col lege faculty, said the ointment had been found excellent for treating the burns of children. He carried out tests at Children's hospital. The raw material for the oint ment Is taken from freshly killed beef. The aorta, a large artery near the heart of the animal. contains the healing ingredients, nr. nase Discovered in research that he started 13 years ago. These advantages are claimed for the ointment: It does not kill tissue: it helns a scab to form; favors the growth of new skin: stops the loss of bodv fluid; eliminates the need for bandages in many cases; it can ne removed easily so skin may be grafted if necessary; it can be used as a medium for Deni. cillin and sulfa drugs; any infec tion can be observed and treated quickly. their third annual Christmas tea on Dec. 22, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. There will be a program and refreshments, and everyone is invited.

Take-Over Of British External Debt Suggested By SAM DAWSON NEW YORK, UP) A sur prising suggestion has been made that American taxpayers could save considerable money in the long run if the United States would take over some of Bntain s external debt now. This debt, called blocked ster ling, is the $9 billion mountain that fastened itself on England's back when she was buying war necessities from friends and re latives. Britain is paying it back in driblets, about $900 million a year. Some say the money for these payments comes indirectly from Uncle Sam, anyway, in the form of Marshall plan dollars, and that the United States must plug up the holes in the sieve or the Marshall plan can't end in 1952 as promised. Ihe principle is a simple busi ness one: when a businessman gets too hard pressed by his creditors, everyone may be bet ter off if it is agreed to pay a little now rather than run the risk of no payment, ever. If Eng land and her creditors would face up to that grim fact, it might stave off bankruptcy later, a state in which every one would lose. Skeptics, of course, have strong points to bring up against They say the plan would be merely another loan to Britain, would plug up one hold, maybe, but leave many more important ones in British economy still open. of Scotch hroom in full bloom at the top of Haines hill on the Kel logg road Saturday.
