Work Stopped For Winter Will

What's Been Don
Oregoniaa Correspondent Ccli
Pointt Miied When Writing of
Trapper Fulkerson
Work on the dam wai closed for
season on November 7, due to the
continued rain and anow. The work
will be returned as soon a. weather
will permit. The dam construction
ha progressed as foluws: A con
duit pipe trench wai dug on the south
i Ida of the lite, where the Kelly ditch
outfit '40 yean ago atarted their
'anal. The conduit pipe wm laid and
secured. A croM section dead wall
(to cut off seepage) was installed.
This wall extends three feet aoove
the creek level and six feet into the
hard pan under the lake bed for
110 feetr cross section. Mud sillH
In parallel rows eight feet apart he
low and behind the cut-off wall,
were laid and rocked in. Cross logs
on the mud liUa were also luid.
These crosa-crib loirs form the base
of the angle uprights that support
the face of the dam. An apron was
pinned to these croru logs for tem
porary spill way purposes over win
ter. The 36-inch conduit pipe 40
feet long was guarded by a plank
sheer apron and left open to tnkc
cart of the winter flow.
The 12x12 timbers that tic the
toe of the dam fare to the dead wivll
were all trucked in from the Sandy
Lumber company's mill, as the im
proved highway wit made it practi
cal to get the lumber there. The
company must clear off a strip of
brush and timber around the lake
under the proposed water line of the
new dam, to comply with the for
estry regulations. It is being con
sidered to put in a portable mill to
cut the good logs into lumber. That
lumber could be used to good ad
vantage in building cabins and cot
tages at Clear lake for the use of
vacationists, tourists, week-end par
ties, fishermen and hunter.v
Clear lake is but two and one
half hours out of Portland by auto.
It Is the first big lake that offers
the outdoors lover a recrcotional
play ground, coupled with good fish
ing, boating, etc.
Wm. J. Mickey, pre:ident of the
Wapinitia Irigation company made
W. W. Belcher, an Orcgonlan
correspondent who should have
known better, appeared in the Sun
day sports section of that paper with
a story concerning R. C. Fulkerson,
predatory animal hunter located at
Maupin. Belcher stated that "near
Maupin, which lies in the bend of
an elbow of the beautiful Crooked j
IUver, in central Oregon," etc; re-1
sides It. C. Fulkerson, government
trapper. Then the story goes on to j
tell about the man who han created a :
vacuum In the ranks of coyotes in J
this section. ; j
The story was a good one antt I
contained facts in the main, but j
when Mr. Belcher located Maupin!
in a bend of Crooked river, he is 1
ri!tv off from the real geographical !
locution of tho place. Maupin is on
the Deschutes more than oO miles !
from Crooked river. '

Thanksgiving Proclamation
At all times and In all places, men have gathered together at the
close of ths harvest to give thankw to the Divine Power which has
blessed their labors and mnde Hhtm to prosper. Deep rooted
acknowledgment to a guiding Providence which I.-, above and be
yond the work of human minds and human hands.
Our national observance of an "annual day of Thanksgiving is
a heritage from the Pilgrim Fathers, who assembled at the turn
of the year to offer prayer and praise to Almighty God from hom
came their strength to endure daily hard, hip and to faca unknown
danger. It is fitting that we should reverently continue in this drly
of prosperity and security the institution they founded amidst ad
versity and peril.
Now, therefore, ln conformity with the proclamation of the
President of the United States which comes an a recurring re
minder of our national unity ln the perpetuation of this American
custom, I, I. L. Patterson, Governor of Oregon, do proclaim Thurs
day, November 2'Jth, 1928, as Thanksgiving Day, and do hereby'
set it aside as a putflic holiday.
Let u on this day give thought to man's fellowship with nature
in achieving the fruits of the harvest. Let us confirm and
strengthen the ties of family life and renew the bond of hearth and
home. Let us express our gratitude for peace by extending the
spirit of good will to all the world and for prosperity by lending
generous and kindly aid to those in (orrow or need. Let us give
thanks for manifold material blessings by turning our minds and
hourta to the things of the spirit.
In Testimony Whereof. I havn hcnwntD set my hri'd and caa ed

The Union ia one of the largest

to keep a plant here, although the
Shell company has several users of
its product, which ia hauled from
The Dalles. With the Union placing
a plant in Maupin the business will
be divided and at the same time
business of the place increased, for
employes of the company will neces

their trade will naturally by given to

opposed to card:-, still such games are
never indulged in at their home. The
Several times recently the valves
on the pipe line at the reservoir have
been clcced, thus throwing additional
work on the rams. Several times
lately the rams have had to have at
tention, because of the valve- closing,
thus entailing a considerable expense
and much worry on the part of those
in whose care the water system lies.
There is some question, regarding
the reason for closing the, valves and
by whom done. One thing is sure,
and that is if apprehended the per
petrators of the mischietf, if so it can
be called, are in line for a vigorous
prosecution and to receive a lesson
which should have a 1-aeting effect.

Reg Cross Is National Institution
The American Red Cross hns arrived. Its balance heet of ac
complishment is favorable in every particular. Each of its ser
vices has shown growth in method and action.
The organization has the, unquestioned support and buskin? of
the American people The attitude of industry both capital and
labor is exceptional. Irrespective of differences on questions of
economics, religion, politics, or race, the Red Cross hps a.,
a binder and as a promoter of good-will. It is universally recogniz
ed as the sympathetic heart and the willing hand of a united peo
ple. It is uniquely free from the limit in.? :cnse of individual pro
prietorship and provincialism.
The American Red Cross is one big nntioal family of service
Its program, broadly defined under the headings of war activities,
civilian relief, health education and junior work, all upon a great
volunteer bast , is one of utmost simplicity. In the Red Cross em
blem it has a sysbol universally understood.
The Red Cross never b feared and ailways is welcome. As an
institution it has something sacred about it which must never be
stifled. Its trustees, the national and Chapter officers, are cus
todians of an everlasting movement based upon an age-old ideal
of love of mankind and the desire to give a helping hand to tho:e
in need. This great force, whose power has not yet been fully ex
plored or tested, must be given greater usefulness. The nxt de
cade of the Red Cros"-, free from limiting influences, will be
characterized by sound growth and expansion in human service, we
sincerely bellve,. such as the world has never seen in all history.
