Fred Evenden who was chair
man of the committee which was
chosen to work with the State
game commission announced the
organization of a Woodburn rod
and gun club, the interest of
which Is primarily to preserve and
protect. the wild game around the
community. He reported that a
game reserve of several hundred
acres had been alloted in which
there would be no hunting. Twelve
pairs of China pheasants have
been turned loose on this reserve
and the place is fairly well posted
so that within a few years there
should be an abundance of this
game pfres4nL It is alspjU aim of
this club to stock the adjacent
streams with game fish as soon
as possible and to prevent pre
season huntingand fishing.
Trophies won at the community
club contest at the Elslnore the
atre in Salem last spring were
presented by C. J. Espy, chairman
of the committee in charge of this
event. At this contest, Woodburn
won two cups, one for the prelim
inary and a second, the grand
sweepstakes prize. It was voted by
the chamber that since the pro
gram was put on by high school
students, they should be allowed
the privilege of retaining the cups
in their trophy case and Y. D.
Bain thanked the group for their
decision in behalf of the students.
Eugetfe Courtney, eluitntan. of
the roads committee, -reported
that through the efforts of his
group the Woodburn arch on the
highway has retained Its present
position. He also said that the
new Killen bridge would soon be
completed and that road, leading
to one of the most prosperous sec
tions around here-, will be open
to- public travel. The president
suggested two projects for the new
committee might be to get the
road from Elmer Settlemler's
place to the Benjamin lane In good
condition and to see to the re
pairing of the north end of Front
street . which leads to Hubbard.

choice tobaccos and expert blending, makes it possible to smoke them
liberally without any tiring of the taste This quality, which smokers have
learned to depend upon, will be maintained, because Camels are made
for those who know and appreciate the real pleasure of smoking.
