Upon the eve of King Karouk’s sum­

occasion of Mrs. Edna Duval’s win­
ning for the first time pinochle. This
all occurred, of course, during card
play of the Gates Lucvky Twelve Pi­

Mrs. Millie Wood.
That time honored favorite, straw­

Duval visibly as results prove. Mrs.

ferent vein and received the big prize.
Mrs. Thelma Otto crept sorrowfully

The Pioneer Girl Scout group of
Troop 52, Gates, took a 4-day hike
along the Sky Line Trail in the Jef­
ferson primitive area. They left early
July 28 and returned late July 31.
The girls making the trip were
Ellen and Roberta Chance, Juanita
and Aloha Thomas, and the leader and
assistant leader Mrs. Walter Thomas
and Mrs. Ed Chance.
Walter A.
Thomas drove the hiking party to a
point one mile from the Pamelia lake
trail where the hikers put on their
packs and gear and headed for the
primitive area.
An easy seven-mile hike put them
at the lake by 10:30 a.m. Camp was
made, lunch prepared then part of the
group went fishing.

were caught for supper and those

The second day’s hike was hardest,
as the trail was about 16 miles be­
tween lakes. The trail out of Pamelia
zig-zaged up the mountain for nearly
five miles and had many snow banks
still blocking the trail. The trail was
wet with many streams from the melt­
ing snow. Grizzly ridge was the high­
est point on the trail. Lizard ridge
the driest. The girls counted 19 dif­
ferent kinds of flowers in peak of
bloom along the trail.
It took from 7 a.m. to 4:30 p.ra. to
hike from Pamelia to Marion lake,
with a 30-minute stop for lunch on
the trail. Just as the troop arrived
at Marion lake they met a Boy Scout
hiking party leaving for Blue lake.
Otis Chance, son of Mrs. Ed Chance
was with the party; he had just re­
ceived his first class badge; and has
been at Camp Pioneer all summer
serving on the staff.
The destination of the third day
was Temple lake. The troop was on
the trail by 7:15 a.m. and climbed

Gates Girl Scouts
Enjoy 4-day Hike
W’atering the birds at that time was
also a chore as all the water was
carried to them by the bucket full,
One evening about dusk, father Red­
fern, carrying a 5-gallon bucket in
each hand, got his feet tangled in a
wire and fell headlong, spilling all
the water and drenching himself—a
wet martyr to the turkey cause.
Each year as more poults were pur­
chased, more brooder space was
needed.
Husband, Merwin, at last
convinced that turkeys were a paying
proposition converted a large barn to
a brooder house by building in two
extra floors and installing six turkey
pens with brooders on each floor. The
barn is heated with butane and water
is piped to each floor to facilitate
watering the birds. The former hay
lift is now a feed lift with turkey feed
elevated to each floor by tractor
power.
When the turkeys are six weeks old
they are put out on the range. Each
year, they are rotated to a different
acreage of the property. This keeps
the birds disease free and has fertil­
ized the land so much that crops
grown the following year are rank and
thrifty. Turkey-raising, says Clethal
is two-fold; builds up the land and
nets a profit on the birds.
Care of 8,500 turkeys might be con-
sidering a full time job by many peo-
pie, but is just a side line to the Knox
family. Mr. Knox is regularly em­
ployed five days a week as sawyer
in a nearby sawmill.
After five years of improving and
building turkey equipment, enough
self feeders have been built to last
the birds a full week, and so eliminate
daily feeding.
Saturdays ’chore is to load the truck
with turkey feed, fill all the feeders,
and wash the water containers. Water
is piped to the range and automatic
float valves regulate the supply. The
day of carrying the water in buckets
is past.
Knoxes' do not have a year round
flock. They handle only meat birds,
so that winters are free for vacation.
The 400 chickens, kept in a separate
brooder house, were purchased this
year to teach daughter Sandy how to
learn money.
Two hundred of the
chickens go to the youngster for rais­
ing them, and the other 200 is for
family use.
