As secretary of the Brewster Commercial Club it is my pleasure to acknowledge the splendid co-operation of the people of Brewster, the whole-hearted assistance our com- mittee received from the various clubs and organizations than contributed to the day% success. To the Civic League, Merchants, the Odd Fellows, the American Legion Drum and Bugle Corps, the Brewster Juvenile Band, the Baseball Clubs, the press and everyone who in any way contributed to the day's success our com- mittee extends ore' warmest thanks. It has been suggested to us that Brewster Day be made an annual event. If the citizens should so desire, I would be glad to hear from them through your columns an ex- pression of opinion as to this wish, or if they do not want their names in print, write lne a personal suggestion. It will receive our best consideration. Just one more request, we will take it as a mark of special co-operation if the par- ents of Brewster would impress on the childen not to tam- per with o1' deface the trees recently planted. This is done sometimes without thought and would need only a re- minder every now and again from the parents. Accept my thanks for your past favors, Respectfully, ';,, W. C. HAMILTON Sac. Brewster Commercial Club JUVENILE BAND MAKES RAPID PROGRESS Another olanization of which Brewster may be justly proud, is the Juvenile Band which was organized and is being directed by A. W. Ruedi of Omak. Composed of sixteen young people of grade and high school age, the group has made remarkable progress since its organiza- tion by Mr. Ruedi, a few months ago. But the proof of the pudding is in the eating thereof, and the test of a musical organization is its ability to en- tertain its audience. The Brewster Juvenle Band success- fully passed the test last Saturday when they made three different appearances. Mr. Ruedi is to be complimented on his fine work and the band members and their parents .hould feel proud of the progress being made. ..... " PLAY BALL ! The baseball season for the Columbia-Methow League opens next Sunday. Brewster and Bridgeport play here. Let's all go out to the game and cheer the boys. When the hat is passed around try and dig up a little to help the cause. Remember, next Sunday, Bridgeport at Brewster. t GROWERS-. The rush work of the apple growing season will soon begin. It is important that your trucks, trac. tors and sprayers are in good condition. A few days delay in the application of the early sprays may mean that you will have a wormy crop next fall.

The average for each type of farming for a given section is about the right amount to invest in .machin- ery," advises E. F. Lgnderholm, State College assistant in farm manage- meat. The average farm machinery will probably last ten yeazs and should be depreciated acordingly. The deprec-i iation figure thus obtained should i cover replacement but not repairs. The State College man advises farn- (.l'S to repair old machinery rather than purchase new equipment, in view of present prices. Average investment in machinery and equipment per acre of crop land for the various sections of the state is as follows: dry land wheat coun- ties, lowest, $3 to $5 per acre; the Palouse wheat counties, $5 to $7 per xcre; the northeastern counties $7 tel $10 per acre. The counties of central i Waskington have a spread of from i $9 to $59 per acre, Benton being the I lowest, Kittitas next with $14, Yaki- I mu with $23, and Chelan highest, i The counties of western Washington range from an average of $17 to $50, with Thurston lowest and King high- est. Garfield county has the highest av- erage investment in machinery and equipment per farm of any county in the state with $2909. county is lowest with $257 per farm. Among other factors, the average number of crop acres per farm is im- i portant in determining the investment in .machinery per farm and per acre. Adams county has the largest num- ber of crop acres per farm with an average of 867 acres; Franklin is second with 674 and Lincoln third with 534. Kltsap has the smallest with six crop acres. Pierce is next in line with eight acres and King follows with nine. HI SCHOOL PRESENTS OPERE'I'rA TONIGHT "The Sunbonnet Girl" is the title of the operetta to be presented by the high school students, in the audi- torium tonight. The cast has been working hard for several weeks past under the dirtion of Mrs. Fisher. Two full hours of entertainment are offered, according to announce. ments. The plot concerns the life of an orphan girl who has to work very hard and who is badly treated. She has much musical talent, but no op- !portunity to develop it. At a contest for singers, she secretly enters and win& ORDINANCE NO. $9 AN ORDINANCE FIXING THE TIME AND PLACE OF MEETING OF THE COUNCIL OF THE TOWN OF BREWSTER, AND AMENDING SECTION 1 OF ORDINANCE NO. 71.

Guards and other protective devices will not remove human negligence, but the two must work in harmony. One phrase of "Safety First" ap- plies to motorists. Roughly estimated, ! six persons are killed every day and 15 maimed or injured. Is this not e- nough to make motorists want to be more careful. Play safe carelessness has killed and maimed more people than war. here is another phase of "Safe- ty First". It applies to those who have no regard for the property of an- other. "Safety First" should be applied to finances. Save some of your pay every week, and I think everyone will agree that while nice things are enjoyable, there is a great deal more satisfaction in having a lump of mon- 'ey stored up by following the prin- ciple of "Safety First." There are 99 savings bank deposi- tors in the U. S. to every i000 popu- lation, while in Switzerland there are 554. We hope that the workman will live to enjoy the fruits of his labor. i TRIP TO PULLMAN Elsie will soon put on the finishing touches. Among the unusually interesting features are Mr. and Mrs. Scraggs, Evalina Scraggs and Ezra McSpavin, which parts are characterized by Don Sines, Priscilla Pendleton, Alberta Dowell, and Walter Timmerick, re- spectively. There are dances scatter- ed throughout the operetta, two of special interest being the Flower Dance by nine girls, in the first act, and in the second act, a solo scaxf dance. There are all sorts of characters, from grave to gay, and there is fun and there is a touch of ronmnce. The delegates, Lester Waddell and George Grant, accompanied by Mrs. C. C. GiUespie, left Thursday morn- ing by auto to attend the State High School Convntion at Washington State College, April 22 and 23. The purpose of the convention is to interest the students in college, and "to help them with vocational guidance', They were .addressed by President C. O. Holland who spoke on the "Aim of Life." He said that the aim in life was success and happiness. To attain these we must have health, adequate preparation for life and character. Also the main spee.ker of the con- vention Dr. W. H. Burton spoke on the topic, "Why Get Educated." He said that we not only go to college to learn to work, but to learn to play. Education accomplishes this by opening up new hobbies and new fields of hmusment. The college held open house dur- ing the convention for th purpose of showing the delegates an idea of what they. do in the department in which he is interested. For amusement they had a little "international' stock show by the ag- ricultural department, a paa'ade by the R. O. T. C. gym work and tumb- ling by the physical education de- partments, a baseball g'ame, a tennis meet, and a college play. ,The delegates were housed in the halls, fraternities and at resident halls and group houses. The delegates returned Sunday and reported a very delightful and worth- while time. ' i -) --GEOI,GE GRANT. OPERETTA NOTES There have been some new work- ors added to the operetta force. Le- ona Fleteher has been appointed the prompter, and Elsie Baltz heads the committee onstage decorations.

To lose fat SAFELY and quickly take one half teaspoonful of Krusch- en Salts in a glass of hot water in the morning before breakfast. For your health's sake ask for and get Kruschen--the cost for a bottle that lasts 4 weeks is but a trifle at any drugstore in the world and if after the first bottle you are not joy- fully satisfied with resilts---money back. All good druggists will be glad to supply you. HIGH SCHOOL DANCE The High School Dance, held Fri- day evening at the High School Gym was a success. It was well attended and everyone enjoyed themselves. Refreshments of punch and wafers were served at 11:30. Music was fur- nished by a local orchestra, compos- ed of high school pupils. PERSONALS Sunday afternoon Jack Thrapp, Lester Dowell, Delbert Davis and Vernon Holcomb were hunting :;'round hogs near the Allottment. Sunday afternoon a group of young people hiked to the Allottment md returned to Marian Asbury's lome where refreshments were ser- ved. Saturday a track meet was held in Chelan, which Bert Cross and Harlan Pendleton attended. Neither of the boys returned with honors. JUNIOR CLASS MEETING At the last junior class meeting it as decided that those who haven't mid their dues will not be eligible .o vote or enter into any class aeti- ,'ities. ,, , ., DEPARTMENT NEWS BIOLOGY CISSNo one need )e surprised these days if they see sigh school students walking about .he hills with bug' nets waving' wild- y about. For that s exactly what hey are doing', at least those in the ]iology Class. They are not all, how- ver, looking for bugs, some are look- ng for flowers. Miss Humphrey the fiology teacher has made it very flain that each member in the class nust find either 50 bugs or 50 flow- ers. ENGLISH IIThe class is study- ng diligently on literature these days. 3esides lives of some great authors, ts Hawthorne, Longfellow and Whit- ier, we are reading selections from :heir works. ASSEMBLY POSTERS Thursday morning, when the high )ehool students stepped into the as- ratably, the first thing their eyes fell pou were the posters that Miss :Iumphrey hadl put on the walls. rhere were several sayings on them as "OK Walter Winehell, Let's Eat A Well Balanced Meal." The posters were .made by the home economics class. It is hoped that Brewster high school students will profit by the advice offered and take care about their eating. Brewster will see small trees planted along the sides of the streets. You wonder who did it; it was the people of Brewster and our hi'h school boys and the grade boys and girls who were out planting trees. You will notice that they worked hard, and were as enthusiastic over improv- ing the appearance of the town as they were over cleaning up our s[ool yards on campus day. JOKES Miss Humphrey: Jack, where is your Biology book? Jack: Well, I'll tell you, it was so old when I bought it that it died. Miss Humphrey: Mauricq, you story forty minutes afteri school every night until you can show me you can behave. Maurice: Well, I.,can show you al- rig'ht but I can't convince you. Mrs. Gihlen: You should remember that assignment, Guy, but I guess you were absent when I gave it. Guy: Yes, or maybe I was asleep. Mrs. Fisher: Billy, do you know your English ? Billy C.: Well, I know of it. Miss Humphrey (in Biology class): Harold, have you seen that bread mold Harold: No, Doris ate it.
