Miss Lois Jean Sinclair won the first
annual Women's Hood River County
Handicap Tennis Tournament and the
first leg on the Kresse Trophy Cup
when she defeated Miss Lenore Cram
in a hotly contested match in the finals
last Thursday. Miss Sinclair, who re
ceived 30 points each eame won the
first set quite easily. Miss Cram,
however, in the second sets, seeming
to realize the terrific odds of having to
win four points to Miss Sinclair's two
to make game each time, settled down
in real earnest and took the second set
handily, winning it six to one. The
strain proved too great to maintain in
the third set and Miss Sinclair granu
ally forged ahead and won the deciding
set at b 3.
This is the first women's tennis
tournament ever held by Hood River
and the number of entrants and quality
of play were a distinct surprise in local
tennis circles. Two players, Truman
Loving, who won the men's county
championship last week, and Miss Bar
bara McDonald, who reached the semi
finals in spite of the fact that she has
only played tennis for three months
and is but 12 years old. show the possi
bilities of real championship stuff.
Veteran tennis players declare that if
given the proper training and oppor
tunity they may be real factors in Pa
cific coast championships in a few
Among the woman who were close
contenders for local honors this year
were Vienna Hukari. Lenore Cram,
Catherine Stewart, Helen Herthner,
Alice McCurdy, Miss Samuelson and
Barbara McDonald. They are all

fight to retain the Kresse Trophy Cup
for another year when it comes up for
play again next August. The hand

Company, is at present on display in
their window.
Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Anderson re
turned Monday from a vacation trip to
California, where thev visited C. H
Hammons and family at Berkeley, and
took in the various Doints of interest
around San Francisco and Oakland.
The trip was made in the new Stude-
baker recenltv purchased or the cam
eron Motor Co., and Mr. Anderson says
no trouble was experienced on the trip,
although some of the roads on the re
turn trip were the worst he ever ex
perienced. The down trip was by the
Pacific Highway to Oakland. Being
advised that the road along the coast
from San trancisco was good, they
made the return trip by way of the
Redwood Hichwav to Eureka. The
road was a Brood macadam to Eureka,
but instead of mostly paving from
there to Grants Pass, as they were
told, the road for the next 240 miles
was rough, rocky, steep, narrow and
dancerous in manv Dlaces.
I he scenerv was verv fine, said
Mr. Anderson, "out we were too con
cerned in making the narrow hairpin
turns and keeping from going down
over the bluff to enjoy it as we should.
There were places where there was not
room enough to stand on the road out'
side of the running board of the car.
with the bottom of the ravine 3,000
feet below. There were logs across
the road in places, as well as rocks,
and we had to crawl along at five miles
an hour to ease over them as best we
could. I would not go over that road
again for $1,000."
Mark A.Mayer. of Mosier. just back
from Diamond Lake, declares it is the
best nshwg place he has ever seen,
Mr. Mayer landed a rainbow trout
that weighed 11 rjounds and two
ounces. Another biz rainbow, weigh
ing exactly 12 pounds, was landed by
J. K. Wilcox, of Mosier.
It is certainly a fisherman s para
dise," says Mr. Mayer. " I neverhad
such good luck fishinir in my life. 1
caught several beautiful rainbows that
weighed over six pounds."
Mr. waver sent a number or me
beaullul trout to friends in Portland.

The Mosier Fiehine Company closed
the salmon season last week with very!

The peak in the number of men em

records showed 651 at work. This
number will be gradually increased
within the next few weeks until it is
anticipated that 800 men will be em

moving along smoothly, and it is antic

schedule time next March.
Many of the men still suffer from
poison oak rash. It is declared that
the unpleasant rash is contracted as
easily by standing in smoke from fires,
when the oak brush heaps are burning,
as from handling the green shrubs.
Many of the men have gained relief

Resident Game Warden Loughery,
out patrolling Hood river on the upper
middle river last week was watching
with interest a huge lizard of the swift
species, skedaddling out of his way.
The swift with usual aUncrity of the
species, went like a lightning flash for
a pile of rocks about 20 feet away.
And then, bless my soul, says Mr.
Loughery, "if that lizard didn't turn
around and come back just as fast to
ward me. My first thought was that
maybe it was locoed or had hydropho
bia or something and was going to at
tack me, but just before he reached
me he went off obliquely and flashed
out of sight in some bushes. And then
I knew what had changed his mind. I
heard a rattling and saw the flat head
of the snake lifting itself in the rock
heap. I had my gun and let go, blow
ing off the rattler a head.'
Mr. Loughery cut six rattlers from
the reptile. A large rattlesnake was
killed the same day by attendants at
the trout hatchery on Dead Point creek.
It is believed that the latter snake had
come down to the trout troughs to I
make a meal.
The hot summer has made rattlers in
this vicinity more lively than for many
years, and old timers say that a record
large number of the reptiles have been
killed this season.

An event of more than usual interest
to local shooters and all others inter
ested in guns and ammunition, took
place at the grounds of the Gun Club
last Wednesday afternoon, the occasion
being an exhibition shoot given by Gus
t'eret or the 1'eters Cartridize Co. Mr.
Peret, besides being a trick and fancy
shot of national reputation, is a big
game hunter of note, and the author of
several interesting articles on big
game hunting jn Alaska.
Some of the shots made by Mr. Peret
show a skill and command over all
kinds of modern sporting arms that is
almost uncanny. For instance, such as
lying on his back and breaking three
clay pigeons thrown into the air at one
time, behind him, or shooting pieces of
canay out oi nis wife s finders with
revolver, while looking in the opposite
direction and sighting his weapon with
the aid of a small hand mirror. He
also shoots the heads off matches
which she holds in her hanas and
shoots pieces of blackboard crayon
from between her teeth with a .22
calibre rifle. Not the least interesting
part of the demonstration is the su
preme confidence that Mrs. Peret has
in her husband's ability to shoot
straight and the uniform accuracy of
tne ammunition he uses.
At the conclusion of his regular pro1
gram Mr. Peret staged an impromptu
match amongst the small boys present
and had them breaking clay targets
and eggs with a .22 rifle. This was
greatly enjoyed by the trailer? and
brought to light the fact that there are
some mighty good shots coming along
with the younger generation and that
they should t.e encouraged and trained
in this clean sport ty their parents and
older shooters.
