In fact this is the first time in twelve years that the sportsmen have been thoroughly aroused to a fighting pitch. This was indicated by the organization or re- organization of every game club in the county. Each major town in the county now has a club and the members are practically solid again- st giving Governor Wallgren the right to dismiss and appoint game commissioners at will. The referendunv to put the issue on the ballot is being circulated and indications are that more than double the number needed will sign. The sportsmen, in general were quite satisfied in the state with the State Game Department and conditions affecting game and fish. The result is that the number of active game clubs had depre- ciated considerably until tile recent move by Go- vernor Wallgr.en to place the Game Department under his political 'control. Now the sportsmen are aroused in opposition to the -political move. The sportsmen say, and we lelieve they are right, "Keep the State Game Department out of politics". HAS STOPPED INFLATION We all feel that the OPA has notbeen perfect. In fact. it has m_de many mistakes, but it's value cannot be valued in dollars and cents. The OPA or a comparable organization was absolutely essential to save us from haVing a disastrous imflationary period that would"have wrecked our war and home, economy alike. Naturally things must be don which adverse- ly affects every family. It makes many people unhappy but there was the necessity to set up an organization to distribute our consumable prodcts equitably to keep prices reasonable and the OPA has done a fairly'good job of it. Even .with: the German War closed vee will continue to have shortages. They may increase temporarily but we must accept ,the situation and make the best of it. PossiSlyt]iCstrongest link in the ,entire OPA set-up isthe yolunteer labor and ration boards that have :served without any salary and with little praise: :These men and women have done a lot of work:and have been honest and con- scientidUs in. perfog their duties. '::" THE. PROCESSING PLANT It-is indeed encouraging,to ,ee the expansion that the Brewster Pateros Processors, Inc., plant at Pateros is planning for the future. This plantwas constructed prinarily to dehydrate cull appies butit is readily adaptable, to the processing of other fruit and vegetables. Theofficers of the organization are business men who  !o not-want to keep a: $225,000 plant idle for'.nine months after it completes it's de ..... hydration, of apples. Consequently these men  havemade arrangements to have'a large quan- tity of peas frozen at the plant and it is expected that several hundred thousand boxes of pears will be dehydrated there this year. The officials of the plant came close to work- ing out a potato dehydration plan last year for this spring, to follow the apple run, but it did: : not materialize. However, it is thought by many that the Pateros plant will be dehydrating potatoes next spring. We have progressive men in charge of the Brewster-Pateros Processors, Inc., and we feel they will keep the plant operating to capacity and as long a period of time each year as practical. n n SMITH FUNERAL HOME PEARNE SMITH Licensed Funeral" Director PHONE 421 PATEROS Okanogan County Abstract Company WM.
