County Clerk Shoemaker is wonder
ing if the practice of transferring
automobile licenses, utilized in circum
venting the law, has had its effects on
dog owners. Mr. Shoemaker has just
receiveu a leuer uom an Underwood
merchant who states that a stray
canine, wearing Oregon dog license
tag No. fi, has appeared at his place.
Looking over his records, Mr. Shoe
maker ascertained the name of the
owner who applied for state dog license
No. 6. He informed the owner that
his dog was at Underwood. The lat
ter, however, refuted the storv, sup
plying the proof by showing his dog.
The license tag, however, was missing
L. M. Baldwin, who was guide for a
party climbing Mount Hood Sunday,
had to call in a physician Monday to
open his eyes. Mr. Baldwin, who
since childhood has made ascents of
Mount Hood almost annually, has
never worn glass to protect his eyes
against the glare of the snow and ice.
Sunday night, the party made a late
start from their camp into Hood River.
"My automobile lights were working
poorly," said Mr. Baldwin, "and I had
to peer ahead into the darkness con
stantly. The great contrast of the
brilliantly lighted snowlields and the
darkness of the homeward drive over
strained my eyes."
While his eyes remain inflamed. Mr.
Badwin was back at his desk again
"I have never seen the snow on
Mount Hood deeper -for this season
than at present," says Mr. Baldwin in
telling of the Sunday climb. "This is
a condition that makes climbing all the
easier. After the snow has melted,
leaving fields of bare ice, the moun
tainside becomes slippery and climb
ing is a greater task and more danger
ous. Sunday, as our party included
many girls, we took our time. Al
though we were late in reaching the
summit, it was much better than had
we rushed and brought the party to
the top overfatigued. The girls were
served hot drinks on the crest by the
forest service lookout. The snow is
still so deep on the summit that only
the cupola of the lookout house peeps
through the drift. But a way has
been cleared in to the door of the 2
mile high structure."
Mr. Baldwin savs that the climh
from the north side of the peak is
made more difficult this year than
most seasons because no life line ha9
been placed from the summit down the
1500-foot, almost perpendicular side of
the conical peak. The ascent of Sun
day was made all the more interesting
because of the presence of some 100
Mazamas and the stunts of a United
States Forestry aeroplane around the
top of the mountain. The big plane,
carrying a photographer, dipped and
cavorted above the weary climbers, the
pilot daring the whiplash currents of
air around the top of the snow peak.
The Sunday party included the fol
lowing: Miss Carrie Evans, of AI
hany ; Misses Winifred Palmateer and
Mildred Canfield, of Portland; Oral
Palmateer, of Silverton; Misses Helen
Forbes and Frances Moe, Mr. and Mrs.
F. L. Moe, Roger and Howard Black
mail, Mark Moe, L. M. Baldwin, Isaac
McGrew and Jack Bagley, of Hood
River. Mr. Baldwin and Mr. McGrew
journeyed to the camp in Mr. Bald
win s car. Mr. Bagley carried the
others from the city to a camp near
Cloud Cap Inn Saturday afternoon in
his Oldsmobile commercial car. The
latter did not make the climb, although
he was once the most noted big game
nunier ot cne community. He de
clared that he is getting too old for
wasting energy on mountain hikes.
He acted as camp cook, and the recre
ationists return singing his praises.
All other members of the party made
the journey to the top of the mountain
except Mrs. Moe and Miss Forbes.
Mrs. Moe had sprained an ankle and
was unable to leave camp. Miss
roroes Became ill as the party
proached the ton of Coopers Spur.
