From where I sit ... fu .In Ma rs U V Mitiw ,,s Leap Year' cir,s! First girl in our town to "get her Bin on Leap Year was the Cop pers' daughter. Jane, who wed Bill Webster's boy last Saturday. When I asked Bill Jr. if it was true that Janey really did the pro posing, Bill said : No, but she made it plain she'd make an ideal wife. Instead of looking for diversion or excitement every evening, she was content to chat beside the fire. "I could plainly see," says Bill, that we'd really have a happy home life which is just exactly what I want from marriage." I know it's usual for older folks to shake their beads over the younger generation. (It's gone on for hun dreds of years, now.) But from where I sit, young people of marrying age today are every bit as commendable as their elders were in their temperance (a glass of beer for instance), tol erance, and common sense. So to Jane and Bill the best of luck! Boy Scout Award Displayed at Kinzua; Two Graduate By Elsa M.

DEAR JULIUS: You haven't seen the West, the wild and woolly West, until you've seen the high desert country oi Eastern Oregon. Here's a land as big as the combined states of New Jersey, Maryland, Delaware, Connecti cut and Rhode Island, where the deer and the antelope still roam, where you can almost see the bend ot the earth and the silence is deafening. We explored this high desert of Central Oregon from the hurricane deck of the Oregon Motor association's AAA tour car the other day, in a 450-mile triangle bounded by Bend and Burns, with Lakeview at the southern apex, and we're still bug-eyed. Leave Bend headed east to ward Burns as we did and you Immediately climb up Horse ridge onto what the pioneers knew as the high desert, 4000 feet in elevation. First spot you hit. if you don't happen to be looking the other way and miss it altogether, is mighty Millican. Population Quadruples You've heard of one-man towns. Well, this is it. the orig inal one-man town, the biggest, littlest town in the West. For many years it had but one resi dent, Billy Rahn. The wartime boom has quadrupled its popu lation probably the greatest growth recorded by any incor porated town, but it is still a one-man town. W. A. Mellen Is the man. Rest of the population, as shown on the census rolls, are Mellen's wife and two small daughters. With this introduction you will think you're drunk when vou droD down out of an end less plateau of sagebrush and greasewood into Burns to find yourself suddenly confronted with one of the big sawmills of the West, the Edward Hines Lumber company and not a tree in sight. The logs are freighted 50 miles from the Ponderosa pine forests on the company's own permanent rail road. Don't miss the Malheur bird refuge, 25 miles south of Burns. On the 158,000 primitive acres of lake and marshland in this biggest and finest game refuge in the West are found hundreds of species of rare and plentiful game birds. Back to the high desert and the high sagebrush. Fill your tanks with gas and keep them filled, for this is a lonesome land! Next stop on the southern RORTLRIID BIND 09 L c, '" Summer MCONtlRC 'iiAiieyriiis o,. itAHVliW Map above shows route taken by motorlog party from Port land via Mt. Hood Loop high way and Wapinitia cut-off to Bend then over plateau triangle. swing toward Lakeview is Wagontire because the rusting tire of a massacred emigrant's wagon still hangs forlornly on a juniper tree up on the moun tain side. Bitter feucis were once fought over the waterholes here. All is peaceful now. Look ahead as you roil through the greasewood desert south to Lakeview. There lies A. Conan Doyle's lost world. High above the highway towers tlie ominous 2500-foot escarp ment of Abert's rim, called one of the highest fault scarps in the United States. At its base lies the unreal waters of Abert lake, one of the largest, but shallowest, in the state, 30 miles long, but only six feet deep at its deepest. At the south end of Abert lake we turned north again at Valley Falls and meandered northwest through he Chewau can marshes to Paisley in the heart of the rich cattle country of the Summer lake valley. Mule Deer Aggressive Along the shores of Summer lake, under the. snow-crusted brow of Winter ridge, lies the state's game refuge and public shooting grounds something new in game "growing and har vesting. Just north of the game refuge we saw 16 of the most beautiful mule deer a hunter could rieaw bead on. They kept chasing us off the road all the way to Bend. Topping the ridge at Picture Rock pass (4830 feet), we saw what some old maps still de scribe as a lake. Silver lake. Silver lake itself, once a 20. square-mile body of water six. miles east of the town, is gone. You can see the bed of the lake blowing across the road southeast of town about 15 miles. If you want to steep your soul in solitude, if you want to pio neer as the pioneers pioneered, but do it sittuig down in air conditioned comfort on modern, high speed highways, try this High Desert triangle.
