BREWSTER'S BRIDGE, THE GATE-WAY TO AND OUTLET FOR THE GREAT CARIB00 TRAIL RE WS'TER HERALD VOLUME NO. 28. NATIONAL DOPE Written for This Paper by FRANK P. LITSCHERT Nothing will so emphasize the changes in the political map which have been taking place during the past few years as the coming battle in Congress on the modification of our tariff laws. Congress has not had a real tariff in a long time, and it is likely that the day of the acrimo- '-nious struggle between the protection ists and free traders as much has de- parted, for a time at least. The fight - will be put on now by those who de- clare tariff is all right but we must lower ours "to pro:note international peace and friendship." Certain it is that sentiment on the tariff has changed rapidly during the past few years, and he change has been all in favor of the protectionists Party lines are no longer strictly drawn on the tariff. Formerly the Republican Party was the protection- ist party and the Democrats were re- garded as the free trade or low tar- iff organization. But there is no long- er a real free trade party if we are to judge from the tariff platform a- dopted by the Democrats in Houston lats summer. % PUBLISHED IN THE INTEREST OF AND TO THE "GATEWAY TOTHE FAMOUS OKANOGAN COUNTRY." i i 1 i BREWSTER, OKANOGAN COUNTY, WASHINGTON. i i i i t i i| These Are the Days l:y Albcrl 7'.

The finish is a si.ckly yellow and is not particularly becoming either to the men or to machinery. Lime-sulphur spraying is now the order of the dayand countless barrels both empty and full are being haul- ed to and from orchards daily. Most of the orchardists have finished prun- ing and are busy putting on the dor- mant spray as is evidenced by the new finish on spray rigs and men. J RE:SPONSlBILITY OF OF THE SPORTSMEN Years ago, sportsmen's organiza- tions were not common. Game aml game birds were plentiful and the wide wooded spaces were untouched by man. The country was a hunter's paradiie and hunters even came from foreign lands to enjoy the national sport. But as our population increased, arid our industries expanded, the hunting grounds became smaller. For- eat area after forest area was cut over or burned and the game was either destroyed or forced to find a new home. As these changes took place sportsmen became worried over conditions and began to organize for the"purpose of protecting' and pre- serving the natural stock of game and game birds, or introducing other kinds of game that would maintain itself under the, changed conditions. In many places throughout the coun- try such action was started too late and the result has been the estab- lishment of private game preserves or shooting grounds. In many states natural game has disappeared entire- ly and the manly art of our grand- fathers laas been forgotten. -One of the first requisites for a game population is a place for them to live. A forest cover provides: the best place for this purpose. This is proven by the fact that game from open prairies disappeared long before that in wooded sections. With the decreased a.creage in our forest covered lands the natural habi- only. And any attack on the tariff under the guise of "promoting inter- national friendship will be suffic- iently debunked before the battle is [over, APRIL S, 1929 1111 T i 'l '; is I ..... , , ADELINE OLSBY IS COUNTY CHAMPION "DOWN THE RIVER OF NO RETURN" SPONSORED BY THE BREWSTER HIGH SCHOOL; GIVEN MeN. APRIL 8TH For the man or woman who gets a "kick" out of the great open spaces of a wild, rugged country abounding in wild game, "Down the River of No Return," will hold an untold num- ber of thrills. This picture, along with those of he Pendleton Round-Up of 1928 will be presented in the High School gym Monday, April 8. Made at a frequent risk of life and limb this feature is a photograph- ic record of the first trip down the famous Salmon River in Idaho, made by any party of white men. Hither- to, none but Indians had been adven- turous enough to attempt the peril- ous journey, and because so many of their own braves had lost their lives in the rapids, the stream was named by the tribes, "The River of No Re- turn." Tired deer are portrayed, grazing o01y a few feet from the lens of .the motion picture ,machine. One sees bears lumbering away from the click- ing noise made ,by the machine. There are elk, mountan sheep, coy- otes, big horns and many other varie- ties of game such as is found only in a sparsely settled country. A raging forest fire is pictured eating its way through a vast acreage of pine timber. Among other things found by the exploring party-and re- corded in the film is the last stand of the pitiful handful of Sheepeater In- dians in the wildest portion of' the Salmon River country. tat of game is decreasing also. Those lands that are being logged off serve an economic function in tee scheme of things. But we have thous- ands, yes millions, of acres of forest overed land, especially j our west- ern states, that are not classed as commercial timber lands, which will, i.f protected provide a home.and re- fuge for a great many game birds and animals. Facts gathered from Forest Service record show. that thousands of acres of this type of forest are burned over each year by fires, some of which are caused by man. Lightning fires can- BLACKWELL'S BUY TONASKET STORE (Okanogan Independent) Announcement was made here to day by C. E. Bleckwell that the Black well Company has purchased the mer- chandise stock owned by T. C. Dodge at Tonasket and as soon as inventor- ies can be completed will take over the operation of the store, No defin- ite information is given out at this .time as to any change in location but itis understood that architects are I working on plans for uniform stores wherever opened, and it is quite probable that the present location of the Dodge Store will not be retained. LOOK A GIFT CAR UNDER THE HOOD He was proud of his automobile. It was one of the latest models and he had paid only about one-fifth the usual price for it. He enjoyed it for just three days then a policeman call- ed. "I'm sorry, Mr. Blank," he said "that's a stolen car. We've found the owner." This happened to a business man the other days, says Popular 'Mechan- ics Magazine, a man known for his shrewdness anti absolute honesty. In an unguarded moment he had neglect ed to look his gift car under hood. If he had, he might have discovered that the serial number had ,been al- tered. The digit 3 had been changed into an 8. But he had not suspected "that anything was wrong and the bar- gain had been too good to overlook. So he lost the car and what he has paid for it. Carelessness on the part of second- han(I cars, in the opinion of Lieut. John J. Farrell, head of Chicago's stolen automobile section, is one of the chief reasons why automobile thieves prosper as they do. Some 200,000 cars are officially reported stoh,n each year. Possibly eighty per cent of them are recovered. But in- surance companies have found that the average loss on a car, "just taken foi. a jo] ride and then returned," is about $150. Conservative estimates place the yearly net loss through automobile thefts simply on cars re- ported at more than $50,000,000. Add the estimated number of stolen not be prevented and accidental fires cars not reported anti the grand total caused by man are overlooked, but doubtless is wel.l in excess of $100,- I when a fire starts thru the careless- 000,000.

She spoke on the subject. "The Meaning of the Con- stitution Today." By winning she will receive a $15 cash prize from the Seattle Times adn the right to enter the district finals a Wenatchee on April 18 in competition with win- hers of three counties. Second prize of $10 was won by Miss Lucille Harris her subject being "The Good Ship Constitution," and third prize of $5 went to Miss Mar- tha Pieken of Tonasket who spoke on "The Constitution as an ideal docu ment." Judges were Dean Uhl of the Uni- versity of VCashtngton; S. E. Flem- ing assistant superintendent of Seat- tle schools; and W. ft. Matters depu- ty state superintendent; all of whom were in Okanogan for the spring in- stitute. Steiners orchestra played before and after the contest. Those entered in addition to the winners were : Walter Pratt, Molson; Mildred Beeson, Riverside; Dorothy Arnold, Pateros; Esther Shatto, Oro- ville. Should Miss Olsby win at Wenat- thee she will compete in the state finals at Seattle. and from there the winner goes to Los Angeles for coast have passed this convictioin has been strengthened until it has been accept- ed as an economic fact in America. I But other changes have been going on. The Democrats formerly depend- ed on the South for free trade sup- port, although, going back in "history we'find that the early southern lead- ers favored protection. But things are changing rapidly in the South. Fine .modern cities are springing up and anufacturing is increasing by leaps and bounds: And in some of these Southern States valuable spec- ialized crops are grown which suffer from competition from Cuba, Mexi- co and the Islands of the West Ind- ies. Now the manufacturers and the citrus and fancy vegetable growers of the South cannot survive without protection. So the world moves on and men's views change. Manufacturing has spread into the west too and the western farmers have crops which suffer also from foreign competition and which can be protected in the home market by higher duties. As a result they are going to ask for more protection in the coming session of Congress and are going to get it past as their south- ern neighbors. Protection, therefore is no longer a Yankee doctrine. You hear it defended in the South and the West as well as in New England. The higher standard of living in A- merica is not confined to any one section and there is a general realiza- tion that [t: cannot be maintained ' unless the great home market is sav- ed for the American producer. It will not do to say, of course, that free trade is dead. It survives in the minds of a great many college professors and sincere but impracti- cal theories in the pockbook of im- porters of such gooIs as come into competition with American lroducts and in the hearts of our internation- alists--thosewho for reasons of divid- ed' loyalty or business believe that-we ought to builr up Europe even at he cost of American  prosperity. Each of these groups has its following and they will Undoubtedly be heard in the coming session of Congress. But the great bulk of the Ameri- can people are sold on the doctrine of reas0nable protection. This was evidenced in the last campaign when not a voice was raised in behalf of h old theory, of tariff fr revenue finals and then into national finals at Kansas City. FORMER BREWSTERITE WRITES TO YE EDITOR Editor Brewster Herald: Misunderstandings are often the base of many an unnecessary heart- ache. Hence this letter. On Tuesday afternoon of the 26th there arrived in Medford a Brewster lady (married) and her son (man grown.) They drove straight to a large house and there met a man (married) who was at the place a- lone, his wife and daughter happ#n- ing to be in Seattle. Rather odd things began to happen. The Brew- ater lady tossed off her wraps as if she were at home. Then she bustled into the kitchen and started making huclde-berry pies of which the mar* ried man is very fond. And hot bis- cuits too. It looked as the such were the plansin fact--it is now whis- pered about town that the plans were all laid (secretly) when in January the Brewster lady and son motored to California where lacking the slu- brious climate of the Columbia Valley they nearly froze to death for the en- suing two months. It is reported that after a sumpt- uous supper, the two sons of the two married people were wheedled into spending the evening at the Mo- vietone Criterion Theater, a very cor- rect affair. To the best of our knowledge, the two married people immediately stepped out also taking a different direction, the, and acting rather gay for old married people, in fact their very walk had an air of a- bandon to it. The Brewster lady was overheard to rapturously exclaim when the glory of Medford's festoon- ed street lights burst on her sight. Their gaiety increased, the man point ing out certain Medford prides like the large Carniegie library, the fountain splashed park, sumptuous hotel broadcasting station and such like. Something happened when they stopped at the commercial cl!b I build- ing to view the great flood liIis that are to light up the new $125,000 Medf0rd airport, for.they certainly disported themselves in a most ex- traordinary way, in fact erie or two people looked at them rath'er askant one muttering' sotto voce Northern- ers likely." Then thep began to 'paint the town red." Down one side of Main Street they went and up the other in the most hilarious manner imagin- able. So much so that two dry Sleuths it is reported, strolled by them and sniffed strongly but could NUMBER 45. I I BREWSTER THEATRE OPENS APRIL 13th "GREAT WHITE NORTH" A FOX PICTURE FOR THE OPENING NIGHT Saturday April 13 has been set as the re-opening date of the Brewster Theatre. While the theatre has been used in various ways all winter, this coming picture will be the first movie pre- sented since January 27 when Uncle Tom's Cabin finished its run here. Two men are busy this week end preparing to lay the new wood floor in the Theatre Building. The floor will be laid level and will be supported by numerous con- crete abuttments and stringers. The opening show is a Fox Picture "The Great White North" In the radio announcement of his plans for exploring the Antartic, Commander Richard E. Byrd recent- ly said the energies of part of his party} would be first devoted to shoat- ing tons of seals and o1her animals for a food supply . Hunting on the ice is one of the most exciting sports in the world. Po- lar bears dash from ice cake to ice cake, seals are wary, walruses fight with tremendous energy, whales fur- nish thrilling spectacles when attack- ed. All these things are shown in "The Great White North" a pictorial record of Sidney Snow's expedition into the north in search of the ,miss- ing members of Stefannson's expe- dition. GO EASY WHEN TEACHING DRIVERS "Give novice drivers lots of help and lots of. room." This is the advice of the Automo- bile Club of Washington which points out that spring marks the debut of hundreds of new cars handled by drivers who are inexperienced in the ways of traffic and who should be accorded every courtesy by seasoned motorists. All of us, at one time, were novic- es in handling automobiles and if we think back far enough, may remem- ber our appreciation of courtesies ex- tended to us by those who had be- come used to the intricacies of ve- hicle operation. "Bstrking at the novice for doing the wrong thing; growling because he or she does not drive in the expected manner or becoming peevish at "foolish" questions asked by them, will deter the newcomer from secur- ing full enjoyment from the automo- bile," says the safety department of the motor association. "Many of the 'spring drivers' will be women and if they are to become veterans they must be accorded the assistance of other users of thehigh- ways." i _ Ii detect nothing more incriminating than paprika seasoned salad. Any- how no arrests were made the the two consumed vast quantities of red lemonade, ice-cream sundaes and such works of the devil. Then they went o another theater, a correct enough affair, but is well known that the place is patronized, o[ton, by cer- tain types of spinsters, bachelors and grass-widows, urged there by the last gasps of a dying primordial re- flex (or mayb its graftex anyway they went there and it was ten o'- clock before they arrived home where their worried sons were waitnig.
