Placing a number of state depart ments, now supported by public funda, nlal wrangling over fish legislation started. One of the most important developments was a promise made to Governor Patterson that Illegal fhhlna would ba storped In the Clackamas 1 and Willamette rivers, now closed r commercially, if theBe streams were oponed from November 15 to April 1. This promise was made by a dolega Hon of fishermen from Oregon City. Tha steolhead is a game fish, legls Mivoly. In the TiOgue, Nestucca, Wil lamette, Clackamas, Nccanicum and Walmna. Only with hook and line can this variety of fish be taken In these streams. The sportsmen want Includod the waters of New river, Pis tol river, Sixes, Ghetco and a couph of other small streams In Coos and Curry counties. Commercial Fishermen Opposed. Arrayed against thoN sportsman an the commercial flHhormen, who wan' to reopen the Willamette, Claclcr.mas nnd Nestucca rlvei a the latter closed by vote of the people. Also tho fBliei men want to change the opon season in Bovdral coiimiereI.il stror.uu, includ ln;t tha home of tho royal chlnoolt so! mon, tho Columbia river, representative Lockwood has favor ed a measure declaring tha sfeelheai! a gama fish In all waters. Tillamook county will be a fisher man's and hunter's paradise, In the opinion of Representative Winslow oi Tillamook, if house bill 155, which ho introduced, is enacted into law. APPRECIATION (Merle Snodgrass) Tho Student Body and teachers of the High school wish to extend their thanks to the Legion for the a e of the hall ; Messrs, Semmes for the ad vertising which helped to draw such a large crowd; to the mu ic students of Mrs. BothweU who played the piano duet during the intermission. Without the pantratrope from Mr. on a "self-aypportliig basis through the adoption of a fee system, Is tha prob lem that Is now being considered ser: ously by tha Joint ways and meant, committee of the legislature. At a rocent meeting of the committee ll was dacided to confer with C. H Oram, stato labor commissioner, In regard to placing his department on a self-supporting basis. Mr. Oram of fored his cooperation, and amend monts have been prepared proposing adoption of an equitable fee schedule. Creation of a separate fish and game district for all of Tillamook county, under Jurisdiction of the county court, is proposed in the bill. It provides that all expenditures of funds collect " ed through fish and game sources in the county shall be adminlstersd by tho county court. One of the main purposes of the bill Is for the protection, preservation ana propagation of Balnion, shad and Btur goon, other food and shell fishes, anr" also for game and gama fish. the darkies. Crystal Stuart was the first to get color, and what a trans formation it made. During the in termision between the first and second parts, the minstrels had to re move the black to go on in individual skits. There wa- much ado because the black persisted. Mrs. De Voe wa., kept busy restoring their original complexions. Everyone was pleased with his schoolmate ' endeavors and many took turns "peeking" through holes, in the scenery. The way faces in the audience fell when the end-men were rported mi sing and the smiles that followed as the ends run up to the front, was an experience, solely of those behind the curtains. Grade Notes The Junior br.sketball tesm has three games scheduled. Two of these games are to be with The Dalles Seventh and Eighth g.-ade team and the other with Wapinitia. Theodore and , Ernest Kirsch, Margaret Appling and Allene Wil ton are absent from school. The Seventh and Eighth trades have been taking the state exams n Geography and Agriculture this r-eek. Their main object was to see what they had learned. The grades were fair, the geograpry gradej running higher in proportion to the number m the class than the Agriculture grades. Financial Statement The student body at the regular meeting authorized the following bills paid: Shattuck Bros $ 4,99 Trans, to Madras 9.00 Maupin Times 10.00 Lumber Co 1,80 O. P. Rest & Co 15.10 R.

While the men were at work the mayor kept a fire going, thus sav ing the mechanics chilled fingers. The breaks were repaired and at i'noon water was agin flowing from ihe reservoir in copious quantities i'It might not be a poor suggestion on our part that a cover be built 'over jthe rams. If that were done work ing on repairs would not be so Jun comfortable when the weather was chilly or when a rain was falling. Over 12 Inches of Snow The late mow storm eomnletelv covered this section. In Maupin fully 12 inches fell up to Tuesday noon, and intermittent falls brought that depth to over 15 inches bv to day. This snowfajl meets with the approval of wheat growers as it will guarantee sufficient moisture to brig on a bumper crop. Visited nt Prineville Dr. W. A. Short took Mrs. Jean Wijiy to Prineville last Saturday, he remaining there over Sunday, returning to Maupin on Monday. The genial tooth puller said the weather at Prineville on opened, up bright and clear with but little snow.

The truck will be taken to Portland and there fit. ted up with a body as was the fir.t vehicle purchased of Kramer Brot. Some Pig Litters Lew Henneghan and Art Gutzler are pig raisers par excellence. Last week they had 12 sows to litter nH the number of pigs born numbered 128, of which 108 were saved. This is some record and speaks loud for the care and understanding of pig raising by Art. They have 19 sows due to litter soon, and if the ratio Keepi up will have the honors as pork producrs. premier Big Ford Stock Kramer Bros, have a pretty fair stock of new Ford cars on hand.

The picture illu'strnted the many parts entering into the makeup of the new car, the assembling 0 same and then switched to the completed ma chine. The pictures were mot 'in teresting and instructive and great ly impressed those who saw them Not So Healthful The State Board of Health's re port for this week shows that Was co county had 15 cases of flu and five of chickenpox. This is some what in excers of last week's re port. At that Wasco is one of the most healthful countie in Oregon, if the reports rent to the Board may be taken as a criterion.
