tlmo to come. Is tlio way Jess Hun
saker feels on hla arrival from the
trenches. Ho came In night before last
and la, a mighty tickled boy to get
home. His experience would fill a
hook and a mighty Interesting one.
Jess was In the first flag Regimcnl
and entered tho battlo line at Chat
eau Thierry on June Twenty-sixth and
was In olevon battles between that
tlmo and the 11th of November. Ho
was gassed twico from vrlch he
has never entirely recovered and had
his shoulder crushod during 'this
period. He was shifted along tho
ontlre front to the Swiss border dur
Ingtho fighting and ended up by the
Swiss bordor, Tho righting in Ar
gonno forcHt was tho bitterest In
which ho participated and tho bloody
scenes there nre Indescribable. He

Red Cross workers on the field and
bombing the hospitals. The soldier
Is being wolcomed 'home by a host of

II. I. Tjcknor was yesterday namJ
as president or tho Langell Valley
Inlgatlon District, which was formed
In Upper Langell Valley a few months
ago -for tho purpose or Irrigating ji
tract of sixteen or elghtecn-thousand
acres or laud in that section from
Clear Lake which is a short distance
south of the California line and wjiich'
lies about seventy feet higher than,
the lands to be watered. - ,
Tlcknor, W. D. Campbell and A.
K. Gale were elected as directors
some time ago and the meeting' yes
terday was to perfect the organization
and start plans for getting to work
as soon as possible. On drawing
lots for the term of directorship. Gale
drew the threcyear termr Campbell
the two year and Ticknor one year.
Archie Wisbard was selected ns Sec
retary for tho organization and Chas.
J. Ferguson as the attorney, The
new body 'will make a call upon the
United States Reclamation Service
for cooperation in getting tbe lands
or the valley under water. It Is
hoped that arrangements can be made
for the glvornment to deliver the
water to the Oregon line as the''
State of course has no right to 'the
California water except thru the Re
clamation Service. The Hoard of
Directors will hereafter .meet on the
first Tuesday of ench month.
The reclamation of this huge tract
or land which Is admitted to be some
oMhe most fertile in this entire sec.
tlon will be a valuable addition to
tho ngrlcultutnl artoa of Klamath
County nnd add immensely to Its
products. Water enthusiasts have
been working unceasingly for the
last ten years" to -bring their lands
under Irrigation In spite of many
back sots and handicaps and it is to
bo hoped that smooth progress from
now on crm be found.

of the Klks Lodge which has met
here for a long time assembled lu.it
