Throughout the world today peo
ple of the Jewish faith are celebrat
ing the festival of Rosh Hosbanah,
tho Jowlsh Now Year. In Klamath
Falls there Is not sufficient Jewish
population to hold public services.
Tho store of K. Sugajan Is closed
for the day and private services are
being h dd In homes ot Jewish people.
In tbo Jowlsh tradition, the Rosh
Hoshanah marks tho anniversary ot
creation of the world, supposed to
have taken place 5,681 years ago.
It is not the chango ot year that
is ot Importance, but tho change of
lifo that this day stresses, that makes'
It stand out as one of the holiest days
of tbo Jewish calendar. It is a day
set apart for introspection and self
examination, also la called the "Day
ot Memorial," o,r "Remembrance."
As such, It calls upon the Jew to re
rQcsxjber the divine purposo ot his
lite, and to stir him to high resolves
and nobler deeds.
Tbo Rosh Hoshanah derives Its sig
nificance from the fact that It is but
tho introduction to the "Day ot
Atonement," which follows 10 days

That' he believed a plan to bring
the waters ot the Klamath river Into
the Sacramento valley through the
Shasta Pass feasible was stated at a
meeting in Sacramento on August 14
by Colonel E. B. Marshall or the
United States geological survey. He
was outlining a plan for the irriga
tion ot practically the entire interior
ct California. He proposed that the
waters of the Klamath .be dlvefted
to the Sacramertto watershed and be
brought down to the Iron canyon ot
the Sacramento above Red Bluff, and
thero stored for diversion Into a sys
tem ot canals, which would deliver
the water to the lands to be Irrigated.
Marshall not only said he believed
the project entirely feasible, but
probably the only permanent solution
ot tho water shortage problem.
