The woodrat has more mischief
and cussedness bound up in his small
furry hide than any other living
creature. He has large expressive
eyes and is a truly beautiful little
creature, with that angelic, innocent
expression that one occasionally
sees in the cat's face as she non
chalantly saunters out the pantry
This little wood imp can indus
triously concentrate on doing more
damage in a single night than would
seem possible without a careful
month's planning. He thrives in
spite of the curses of high heaven
brot down on him by the tenderfoot
camper and is always on hand to
joyfully join every camping party
that invades his territory.
The camper that awakens in the
morning to find his only shoe laces
neatly cut into two inch lengths
and a handsome crescent removed
from his new Stetson is seldom in a
humor to get any consolation from
the fact that the rat tries to be en
tirely honest and if he just sort of
casually borrows anything he al
ways put something in its place.
For this he is widely known as the
trade rat and also the pack rat in
addition to numerous and unprint
able names conferred in the heat of
anger. If he empties the sack of
dried prunes, he will probably care
fully fill the sack with dried ma
nure. If he makes off with the camp
er's car keys, glasses and jack knife
he will probably put an old bone, a
pine cone and a dried mushroom in
their place.
Any abandoned cabin is imme
diately appropriated to his use and
he is never too retiring or modest
to invite himself in should it not be
Anyone who has ever taken shel
ter in an old cabin is usually in for
what we would call a "night of it."
Weird and noisy scamperings mark
the rat's regular and tireless trips
to and fro, while each new idea is
accompanied with a resounding
thump as he brings his small heel
down in emphasis.
For years I have tried to find out
and watch just how one of his little
tricks was performed but to date
have been unable to catch one in
the act. He will carry eggs up the
side of a wall and store them among
the beams or the rafters over head
Student Leaders Win
In Close Contest
Oregon State College Bob Wal
ker of Corvallis was selected as stu
dent body president at OSC for next
year in one of the closest Associated
Students elections ever held on the
campus. Walker, junior class presi
dent this year, defeated Ed Burchell
of Lexington, editor of the Daily
Barometer, by, 26 votes, according
to the official canvas.
Ted Kirsch of Maupin was named
first vice president; Irene Hegeberg
of Portland, second vice president;
Russell Graf of Hood River, third
vice president; Janet Hinkle of Port
land, secretary; Joe Carter of Pen
dleton, president of the Memorial
Union; and Derwood Smith of Cor
vallis, yell king.
The State Land board has gone on
record as opposed to further sales
of tidelands along Oregon streams
or ocean beaches. The board adopt
ed this policy after rejecting two
bids for the purchase of 44 acres of
tidelands on Quinn's island in the
Columbia river, said to be valuable
for fishing purposes. The board will
lease the land instead, charging
poundage fees which will go to en
rich the common school fund.
Residents of Linn county who go
to the polls at the primary election
will also have an opportunity to vote
on the question of organizing a peo
ples' utility district. The Hydro-electric
commission has called a utility
district election for May 20. At a
previous election in November, 1936,
the proposal was rejected.

and leave no mar or marks on the
egg to indicate just how it is done.
I have been told that he wraps his
tail around the egg and hauls it but
I have, never believed it as the tail
is rather stubby, is covered with
hair and in no way present a pre
hensile appearance.
Many years ago another forest
officer and myself went into an old
log cabin to escape a storm. It was
fitted with old fashioned bunks made
of split puncheon that were harder
on the bottom than any sinner's
heart. For the sake of room they
were built about like deep pantry
shelves. Being pretty well exhaust
ed we fell asleep in spite of pro
testing hipbones and shoulder blades.
Along in the night my pardner let
out a whoop that would have made
an Apache on the war path envious.
I crawled out and kicked the leg
out from under the cook stove with
my bare toes trying to find the
lamp which was lost in the complete
darkness and the confusion of be
ing turned around. When we were
again oriented, so to speak, I found
that a wood rat had playfully sam
pled a rather generous bite out of
my friend's ear and he had nearly
removed the well spiked puncheon
bottom of the bunk over him as he
suddenly raised up. In this partic
ular case nothing was left in place
of the missing piece of ear, the rat
evidently figuring that there was
just too much fuss about a little
thing like that anyhow.
