Ducks Find
Own Fort Knox,
In Fish Pond
SPOKANE, Jan. 26 (AP)—Hund
reds of “fishermen” without licenses ,
and out of season have forced the
district game supervisor to post a
24-hour patrol at the Griffiths '
Springs hatchery near Spokane.
The culprits are flocks of hungry <
ducks swooping down on the rear- ;
ing ponds at the hatchery to scoop 1
up a mouthful of four-inch rainbow
trout. i
“The problem is really serious,” <
district supervisor Fred Round said. ]
“We have to do something or there j
won't be any fish left after the :
ducks get through.” 1
The ducks have found the rearing
ponds with their millions of trout a ;
regular “Fort Knox for ducks” and i
flap by in the hundreds for a quick <
snack. 1
Plans are being considered to i
place a wire netting over the ponds '
but until that can be accomplished <
a guard has been posted to “shoo” <
the raiders away. l

Frozen Life
Hits Dorms
You think your sleeping porch
is cold! You ought to live in the
vets’ dorm. For the last two
weeks saw mills have been shut
down. They haven’t been pro
ducing any hog fuel. The Univer
sity heating plant uses hog fuel;
a situation results.
I. I. Wright at the physical
plant is doing his best to lower
the freezing rate. As it stands
now, the heat in the dorms is
turned down at night, not off as
it might seem. Fuel, which is oil
instead of preferred sawdust or
hog fuel, is delivered every day—
enough for the next 24 hours.
This condition has been the
foundation of many rumors of
men being found frozen in their
beds under mounds of overcoats,
newspapers, dresser scarves and
dirty laundry.
