ANNOUNCEMENT of the summary dismissal of State
. Biologist Will L. Finley from office by the state fish
and game commission comes as a shockto lovers of Ore
gon wild life and will be keenly regretted by sportsmen
ana me general public.
Mr. Finley is a naturalist of note. He has- devoted
the major portion of his life to the study of native birds,
fish and animals of the state. ' His work has won national
recognition and he is an acknowledged authority through
out the nation. v .
Called on by Governor West nine years ago to' reor
ganize game protection and propagation work upon a
scientific basis, he has devoted the vears since to the work.
With the reorganization of the commission under the late
Governor Withycombe he was removed as state warden
and the position of state biologist created for Him, since
which he has filmed the wild life of the state and hv his
lectures inculcated the love of birds and animals in school
children, as well as advertised Oregon's out-of-doors re
sources abroad. , ;
Mr. Finley's work has done more to foster the
of true conservation by influencing the risiing generation
man any sme ie t . t..e g a 3 commission's labors.
All over the state, children put up bird houses and feed the
birds where they formerly killed them. Adults have been
shown the relation of birds to agriculture and as 'a result
bird life is on the increase, and the principles of true
sportsmanship better comprehended.
Whatever the merits of the commission's action, and
there are of course two sides to every controversy, the!
loss of Mr. Finley's services as biologist is a loss to Ore-
gon, rather than to himself, for had he not loved Oregon
and his work, the ct mparatively meager compensation
paid him, would not have held one of his attainments in
so. narrow a sphere of action and he will now' be free to
work out his. destiny for a brilliant future in the wider
field of the nation. . .

T7"HILE the republicans are busy with a dozen favor-
ite sons in the field as candidates and a paid pro
fessional politician as general manager to raise a. slush
lima, now comes John Wuchter, who in a printed letter,
dated at Portland, solves the problems of the democrats
by nominating himself for president.
We don't know who or what John Wuchter is, save
that he has applied for a copyright upon -himself and
he needs it badly, lest some statesman steal his thunder.
His announcement letter, to be sure, is somewhat inco
herent, somewhat ungrammatical, and his spelling de
lightfully original, yet his knowledge of history and his
ready relief from national ills qualify for membership in
that illustrious band of barn-storming senators who are
holding up the peace of the world for partisan advantage!
Mr. Wuchter starts in with the tax on tea 'anH ends
up with the peace conference.: He summarizes with
loagenzeri lucidity the situation as follows: -
" The ktser was born to rttlo In the name of thn flormrtn vtennla n ti il nn

that the president and the law maketng body cannot declare War without

from him, whom I took for reporters.
John came foruptrd with a great
show of bravado and yet he had a
boyish look of uncertainty o his face.
He was not aure u just how I shoulu
He made a rush for me, however,
as though he were anxious to get. me
in his arms before t could maKe the
slightest gesture of disapproval.
"Wait untilyou get home, Kather
ine. Walt until you get home before
you tajte it out on me," he wh.spered
jnio my ear. iran i you see tnose peo-j
don't look now!" he hastily interpo
lated' as I raised my head from his
shoulder. "Those people are reporters

you are going to do about this nasty
"Well, they found out, I guess," I
answered as I let him tuck my arm
under his and started for the car. ;
Click! Click! and I realized that we
had been snapped by cameras, and 1
grew cold and shivery as I thought of
my picture in the papers.
Here they come! Here they come"
admonished John under his breath.
and just at that moment, to my in
tense relief, Karl Shepard came ud
and shook my hand and smiled Into
my eyes. .
One young man in the party, who
seemed braver or bolder than the rest,
said: "Mrs. Gordon, we should like to
linow if you have any statement jto
"What do you mean?" I said. "You
certainly must know that I have been
out of town attending the funeral of
my father and that I have been call
ed, back because some careless college
boy drove his ear into my husband s
motor in which my husband and one
of our friends were seated. I came im
mediately because I was very much
worried for fear either my husband
or Miss Moreland might have been
hurt more than they would admit
over the wire."
"Good girl, good girl! You're a
brick!" muttere Karl Shepard-in an'
"Take me away from them alt quick
dear. Are you sure that Bess hasn't
been badly hurt?" I said loud enough
for the reporters to hear as we enter
ed the car. ,.
Both John and Karl stepped in
quickly and, ;as we drove off, John
said to Karl,' admiringly:'" "I tell you:
that's-the kind ;ot a wife to have!"
"And I tell you, John," said Karl,
and his mouth tightened, "you're not
the kind of a husband she should
have. As soon ..as I. can , assemble!
enough courage I'm going to tell her
that you are either a fool or a scoun-,
drel. As it is now, I think you are a
little of both. ,
"Let me off here," he continued a
little thickly. "I'll see you at your of
fice. Your marital happiness -under
the circumstances, is a little more
than I can bear."
."I should think," John said, "that
it would make you want to marry, -for i
you can see now that the right kind of
woman will stand by a man through
thick and thin." I
And then Karl turned to me as he
left the oar and 'asked: !'Will she?"
And I had already asked myself the
same question, t f ' . i '.
