The Columbia came terribly near ad
ding several names to its list of fatal
ities Sunday afternoon at Koberg's
beacn when Chester Chevron in com
pany with his uncle, Frank Chevron,
who attempted to teach Chester to
swim, went unexpectedly into deep
water. M. L. Osgood went to the reg
cue but Cheaters' grip about Mr. Os
good's neck could not be loosened and
but for L. A. Chapman's aid both
would have been drowned. Another
swimmer whose name we did not
learn, went to Mr. Chapman's aid as
Mr. Chapman was quite exhausted fol
lowing the moist strenuous efforts to
save the lives of those to whose assist
ance he had gone. The Chevron and
Chapman families were eyewitnesses
to the incident, yet helpless as to ren
der aid. Chester has been ill as a re
sult of such an experience but ia re
ported improving. The many friends of
alirjconcerned are sincerely glad that
all were rescued.

The following letter from President
Carl R. Gray, president of the Union
Pacific System, to Vice President E.
E. Galvin, is self-explanatory:
VTor the informa'on of the general

the public through the presa and to all
of our officials so that the public end

the following statement:
" 'Regardless of any question of the

"Subsequently the labor hr.A
declared that the rules and working

The Pacific Northwest as a whole is
a fisherman's paradise, Hood River
county being the most wonderful from
the fact that all the streams head in
Hood River county and empty into the
Columbia in Hood River county. High
mountains to the east and west with
majestic Hood at the southern extrem
ity, make us a community all to our
selves with ingress over tbe Columbia
River Highway bv auto, the Union Pa
cific System by rail and the Columbia
river by water.
We have a very active game associa
tion, incorporated as the Hood River
County Game Protective Association,
with a membership of 270. The asso
ciation was organized in 1907 and since
that time up to a few years ago their
entire energy was devoted to stocking
the streams with game fish, the fields
with game birds and assisting the
State GamelCommlssion in apprehend
ing violators. Today our stream's are
abundantly supplied with fish and our
fields with birds. Quail and China
pheasants are plentiful throughout the
valley. In the hills we have the na
tive pheasant and grouse, deer, bear
and a few elk, some cougars and bob
cats. The game association a few
years ago decided to take an active
part in the development of our natural
resources, and began an agitation for
roads to reach our scenic assets.
Splendid results were obtained. We
enjoyed the whole-hearted cooperation
of our Commercial Club, the Game
Commission, the local United States
Forestry Department officials and our
county officials and we flatter our
selves that this cooperation exists to
day just as srtong as on the day of its
Summer is now here, the snow on
the lower mountains will soon disap
pear, and the rhododendron and Mount
Hood Mies will be in bloom all around
the base of the majestic mountain, the
shrubs and bushes will be in their
fresh new attire. It is then that we
will step on the button and "Dodge"
out through the thousands of acres of
orchards, in the wee ems' hours of the
morn, when the dew is on the bushes
and sparkle like millions of diamonds
in the glare of our lightson through
the logged off landthrough the rock
ribbed canyon into the forest primeval,
among the rugged hills, covered with
towering trees, just as God built them.
We hurry along because we want to
reach a certain murmuring brook be
fore sun-up and make camp. There is
one of the most wonderful scenes in
the world to be witnessed. We want
to see it, and never tire watchintr the
colorful panorama ; camp is made just
as a deep purple glow appears in the
far east heralding the dawn of another
day and we hasten to the vantage
point where Mount Hood looms in bold
relief. The purple hue is gradually
turning to pink, then shafts of goldtn
ligh intermingle with the pink and we
watch the crest of Mount Hood and
soon there appears the globe of light
on the uppermost pinnacle glistening
like a great arc lamp, signaling the
approach of day. We stand enthralled
and watch the shadows as they silently
recede to the canyons below. The
birds begin to twitter and call, then
we hear another song, "Y-o-o h-e-el
vou guys c'mon, brekfust is ready."
The cook is not a darned bit senti
mental. He came out to fish. Break
fast disposed of and a couple sand
wiches apiece prepared for the noon

creels, strap on the little black coffee

The apple growers of California are

The Hood River Glacier devoted con
siderable of its space last week to tell

operation from outside that should be
appreciated. The Glacier last year
was given the O. A. C. prize for being
the best weekly paper in the state, and
the honor was justly deserved. Petty

It was Nature Lovers' Day Tuesday
at the weekly session of the Lunch
uut) at the Hotel Oregon. Addresess
were delivered by P. Brady, of Reed
College, who is associated with Samuel
C. Lancaster in the development of the
Columbia Gorge Camp at Boneville: C.
E. Graves, secretary of the Oregon
Nature Lovers. Club; J. H. Fredricy,
president of the Hood River County
uame rroiective Association, and W.
P. Hardesty, ex-president of the Ma
zamas, who is located here now in
charge of construction of a link of
market concrete paving. Mr. Graves,
chairman of the meeting, who told of
the plans of the Nature club to foster
a sentiment for the conservation and
exploitation of the points of scenic in
terest and wild flowers and shrubs
along the state's highways, declared
that a study of nature in its many
lornis, wouia give ousmess men a tine
hobby. He declared that such a study
was desirable in that it would rntiKM
only a minimum interference with bus
iness duties. Mr. Graves declared
a Keen analytical study of natural
phenomena and the observation of wild
life and the pursuit of botannical in
vestigations compatible with the male
temperament as contrasted with the
''Oh My" cla&a of nature lovers typi
fied by the old maid school teacher,
who rusticates in some rural Fection
during the summer months, pouring
forth frothy ejaculations on the sight
oj a room or a cnipmunk.
Mr. Brady declared that the Colum
bia Gorge Camp had resulted from
plans formulated by Mr. Lancaster
when the latter was engaged in con
structing the Columbia River Highway
in Multnomah county. He stated that
the personnel of the Reed Colleea tii.
dents and others now working at the
camp numoerea aoout 40. The camp
is now iuuy equipped to receive guests.
The Lost Lake and Wahtum Lake
camps have been abandoned for this
Mr. Fredricy told of the benefits to
be derived from fishing excursions on
the upper reaches of Hood river. He
was emphatic in his descriptions of the
beauties to be made available bv the
Mount Hood Loop Highway on the
East Fork of Hood river.
Many apple buyers were present for
the luncheon.

the country of which his children at
leat, must become a part. Without
national pride, national interest, and
an open demonstration of national pa
triotism, all national life would cease,
on the earth, and give place to the old
tribal fear and force.
The wild, barbarian instincts and
sport which once dominated the human
family are still strong in many of the
delinquent members of the family, as
shown by the numerous criminal viola
tions of decency, law and Christian
refinement, but those barbarous na
tures in our midst must be educated up
io an unucrsianaing, an appreciation,
and the enjoyment of our national life
and standards. The few who cannot
or will not respond to the spirit and
ideals of our country must be taken
care of, lawfully, in some other way.
All members of our national com
munity, whether professed Christian
or not,.should recognize their respons
ibility to teach those nearest them,
their moral and civil obligation to ful
ly support the American national life,
in spirit and sincerity, as well as by
enforced taxation. Why should a man
accept hospitality, freedom, personal
prosperity and protection from our
national life and then stand on the
street like a dumb brute when our
national Hag passes, or our national
hymn is sung, or played? Why should
a man appeal to the laws and courts of
our national life for all the privileges,
advantages and backing for his busi
ness, his property, and for his family,
which are given to any ex-service
man, and then show no interest what
ever in our national celebration, nor
allow his children to?
Why should it be considered a part
of "free speech" for m man to publish
belittling and contemptible cartoons of
our executives after they have been
chosen and installed by the will of the
people for a short term of service?
There ia an appreciable difference be
tween "constructive," sincere criti
cism, and destructive propaganda.

Editor Glacier: In your last issue
was a letter written by Mr. Cornelius,
who tried to explain something about
the street improvements on Tenth
street between Cascade and Columbia.
He stated that the grading on Tenth
street could have been done by two
men and a team in a day with a good
portion of the afternoon off. He also
said that perhaps two loads of gravel
were used and that the labor cost
would not exceed $15. ,
In rebuttal of his letter let me give
the public the exact figures from the
city recorder a records:
The excavation reached 126J yards,
wnicn at 47 cents per yard, brought
me tioiai cose to loa.bZ mute a lift n
difference from what he states. Two
men would have had some job moving
12G yards in a day with one team.
The work included 100 feet of curb
and gutter at 78 cents per foot. Drain
age also had to be provided to take
care of a stream of water rushing in
front of Mr. Cornelius' property. Mr.
Cornelius says the gravel was perhaps
iwu iuaus. lninv-mree cume teet of
gravel were required, at a cost of
$1.34 cents per yard, making a total of
$41 50. Engineering expenses, war
rants and incidentals brought the total
cost to $243.15.
Now you can tee that it is a very
simple thing for anyone to sit idly by
and accuse others who have the inter
ests of your city at heart and say they
made a steal. However.the accusation
IB not true. Since I have been mvor
of your city I have always tried to do
what I thought was best for the good
of our town. It may not coincide with
the ideas of all, but those are my sen
timents exactly and the council has
been accused of various things such as
lightweights, etc., but I never worked
with a lot of men more unbiased in
their opinions and whenever I called
upon them they were alwavs willinir
to leave their work and go out in the
interests of Hood River. I say this
iranxiy anu there is no exception to
the rule. I sometimes think while
they are criticised severely by some,
the people of the town as a whole apj
predate their services.
Never once is it ever mentioned that
when our city hall bonds were created
and we were offered 94 cents on the
market, your council decided to huv
them as an investment. We held them
a little over a venr nnil an A h..m re
cently for $1.05 and made the city
nearly $5,000. Are sueh things as that
ever mentioned. No, but a measly $10
or $15 some disgruntled taxpayer has
to pay, when he thinks it too much, is
at once taken up and aired through
the press. There are other things that
could be said, but this is enough for
this time and 1 thank you,. Mr. Editor,
for the space you have given me.
