Pleads lor
Cooperation
State Game Representa­
tives Address
Gathering
A plea for cooperation in as­
suring the continuation of Ore­
gon’s wild life was made at the
sportsmen^ banquet in the Mas­
onic temple Tuesday evening by
representatives from the state
game commission. Participating
were M. F. Corrigan of McMin-
ville, chairman of the commis­
sion, Carl D. Silven of Baker, a
member, Frank B. Wire of Port­
land, state game supervisor and
Ernest L. Crockatt of Portland,
assistant supervisor. There were
56 paid tickets collected, and
several who came in later for
the program. A large delegation
from ’St. Helens was in atten­
dance.
Mr. Corrigan, who made the
first address, told of the abun­
dance of game in the Nehalem
valley 45 years ago, when he
spent his first winter up Beaver
creek. No conservation was then
necessary he asserted, while now
propagation must be resorted to
in order to maintain the flocks.
For the coast streams, Mr. Cor­
rigan declared, cutthroat trout
have been foud to be particularly
adapted, but they have been dif­
ficult for the commission to ob­
tain. For this reason the coast
streams have been somewhat ne­
glected. For the past two years
the commission has been im­
pounding cutthroats in lakes for
spawning, and when it will no
longer be necessary to resort to
outside sources the supply of cut­
throat will be much more ample.
Traces of Hunter
Thirty Dollars
Lost Last Month
Discovered Sunday
Is Drive Receipt
Traces of the Salem hunter
who was lost in the upper Ne­
halem valley last September and
emerged at Big Eddy while an
extensive search was being made
for him were discovered Sun­
day by Mr. and Mrs. Cass Ber-
gerson, Theodore Koppe and
Homer Inman. They were
hunting on the Frank Hankel
burn a half mile southeast of
the Tom Enneburg clearing when
they spied a can on which had
been written: “R. E. White, lost
here. Headed as stick points, 9-
21-33.”
Mr. Bergerson intends to send
Mr. White the can as a souvenir
as soon as he can learn the cor­
rect address.
Twenty-five More
Jurors Drawn

from
Names of 25 additional jurors
were drawn in St. Helens this
week on account of seven of the
jurors already impanelled having
been drawn for the grand jury,
and a number of others excused.
Among the 25 are C. R. Van
Alstine, Albert Wood, A. R.
Holmes, C. W. Eichman and F.
B. Warfield of Vernonia. They
will be on the panel for the Sil­
verman murder trial next week.
On the docket for next week
also is the case of Omar Sheeley
vs. Elmer Bergerson, death claim
of $10,000 for Betty Sheeley.
Thi»- action grows out of an ac­
cident about three and a half
years ago when Betty Sheeley,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Omar
Sheeley, was killed by an auto­
mobile while alighting from a
school bus driven by Mr. Berger­
son. This action is not against

Commiuion Handicapped
The commission is working with

years ago, and puts out more
fish and game, declared Mr. Sil­
ven. Voluntary aid in the conser­
vation policy is necessary, he
said, as it is impossible to hire
enough wardens with available
funds to secure complete en­
forcement of the game laws.
Allocations Discussed
Mr. Wire read the allocations
of fish in Columbia county re­
commended by the Nehalem Rod
and Gun club and comments
were invited from the St. Helens
visitors. Among those who ex­
pressed their opinions were Dr.
Devers and Phil Bewley, both
agreeing that the Nehalem should
get the bulk of the plantings, and
that plantings should be restricted

Columbia.
Planting in small streams tri­
butary to the Nehalem was re-

Purchase of school district war­
rants by persons who intend to
make a tax payment before Nov.
5, the final date for payment of
the 1932 taxes, was suggested by
Ivan N. McCoIlom, principal, at
the meeting of the board of dir­
ectors of District 47, Wednesday
night, as a means of financial as­
sistance to the teachers and bus
drivers. Even small amounts
would help, he pointed out. Many
of the teachers will otherwise
find it extremely difficult to
visit schools next Monday and
attend institute in St. Helens
Tuesday, if they cannot cash
even their small warrants.
The proportion of the total tax
that may be paid in District 47
warrants is approximately 10 per
cent, it was figured out at the
meeting. High school warrants
are acceptible for the entire
amount of the high school tax,
there being no bonded indebted­
ness.
