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 lost his rule.

State street looks like the famous Hindenburg line, after the allies got through battering it, with deep trenches and high em bankments on each side and shell craters between. Other streets resemble other portions of the battlefieldsort of a no-man's land, more or less impassable for man and beast. . - The city council authorized the street commissioner' to clear off the snow, but refused to provide the money Ih street commissioner failed to rise to the emergency clean the streets as ordered and let the council pay the bills. !

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 greet him. 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 come down to this train to see what you are going to do about this nasty mess." , "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 make." . "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' undertone. "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 '. (Tomorrow :ah women are philos ophers.) 'V !
