While new business accepted by
West Coast mills for the week end

excess of current production, the
favorable showing is the result of
lessening production rather than
increased orders, reports to the

- Announcing production tcred
ulee for 120,000 Hudson and s
aez can during the second quar
ter and predicting that earnings
for that period would far exceed
any previous quarter In the com
pany's history, President W. J.
MeAneeny told stockholders of the
Hudson Motor Car company, at
the annual general meeting here
that this was by far the best year
in the company's history.
The optimistic statement was In
the nature of a birthday present
to the stockholders, for this is
the "coming of age" year for Hud
son. Roy D. Chaplin, who presided
as chairman of the board, the late
R. B. Jackson Howard R. Coffin
and MeAneeny, backed by J. L.
Hudson, started the company 21
years ago. It la now the second
largest Independent in the field.
Mr. MeAneeny said: "Since the
introduction of our present Hud
son and Essex models we have enb
Joyed & consistent and record
breaking demand. Shipments for
the first three moots of the year
were 108.048 cars. This volume
resulted in first quajter earnings
of $4,466,783 or $2.86 a share
the most favorable first-quarter
showing ever made."

H. 8. Rogers, dean of the school
of engineering, Oregon State Ag
rlcultural college, said in a recent
contribution: "If complementary
things can be superlatively com
pared, these water resources are
the greatest single permanent re
sources endowed by nature. Upon
their occurrence depends the de
velopment of rivers and harbors,
the Irrigation of arid lands, the
improvement of wet and swamp
lands, the supply of power for un
told Industries and the health and
happiness of cities."
Dean Rogers waa refererlng es

Dean Rogers says the water of
the earth passes through a cer
tain natural eycle. Beginning in
the oceans, it Is evaporated Into
the atmosphere where it is con
veyed by the winds over the land
areas. From the atmosphere it
is precipitated in the form of rain,
dew, frost, or snow upon the
earth through which it percolates
or from which it flows in streams
on its return to the ocean.
Reliable Rainfall
"Most of the rainfall of the
Pacific northwest, says Prof.
Rogers, "Is caused by the upward
deflection of the southwesterly
winds which blow In from the Pa
cific ocean, and striking the Coast

cooled so that the air precipitates
its moisture upon the hills below."

ranchers west of Sheridan, Ore
gon as "Old Baldy" and one of
the most vicious sheep killers on
record was killed last week by C.
J. Smith, Jr. The Smiths, father
and son have accounted for 12
cougar during the last four
months, but they took more pride
in the killing of Old Baldy than
in all the others. On May 12 the
younger Smith saw the cougar
crossing the road and fired at the
animal, wounding It In the shoul

treed it, and Smith killed it with
a shot In the head.
The recent activities of deer

slaughter of the big cats. One
cougar is reported to hare kill
