JUNE 3, 1932 NUMBER 3 I i ii iii ijH MR. AND MRS. A. SPULER DROWN IN L. WENATCHEE Campanion Escapes When Motor Boat Over- turns Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Spuler o. Wenachee, were drowned in Lak, Wenatchee, Monday afternoon, whe* the small power boat in whLch they were riding overturned in rough w:i- ter. A=eompanion, Mrs. Fred L. Over ley who was with them escaped. Mr. and Mrs. Spuler and Mrs. 0 verley were members of a party o; Kiwanians and their wives, who wet',. spending Memorial Day at a youn:. people's camp on the lake. The Spu lers and Mrs. Overley left the Ovev- ley cabin at Cedar Brae to go to the camp in a small motor boat. Accord ing to reports the lake was excel)- tionally rough. : Motor Stops According to Mrs. Overley's story the motor stopped and the boat im- mediately lost headway in the rocgh water. Spuler attempted to get to thv oars but the boat capsizaed throw- ing them all into the water. Mrs. O- verley grasped the boat when she came up. Mrs. Spuler was floating face downward nearby, but out o! reach. Spuler madc efforts to swim before he finally disaPl)eared. Mrs. O- verley clung to the boat until it reached shallow water, and then she managed to pull Mrs. Spuler ashore and then ran to the camp for help. It is believed that Mrs. Spuler died of shock when she was thrown into the water as there no water in her' lungs. Artificial respiration was con- tinued for two hours without avail. A doctor and nurse who were pres- ent said that at no time did Mrs. Spuler show signs of regaining con- sciousness. Body RmcoBred Tuesday morning Spuler's bod was recovered from about eight feet of water, by George Sellers and Fred Overley. Members of the U. S. Forest Service assisted in the recovery. Oth- er contents of the boat may be re. covered in calm weather, it is said. Noted Entomologist Anthony Spuler was an entomolo- gist internationally known. He had done extensive work on codling moth control through observation and spray aterial experimentation. Spuler wa the first to use moth traps as a means of determining spray dates. Thb: method is now used throughout the Northwest and in practically every part of the world where apples are grown. His death is a great Io to the fruit industry.

The total crop was lost. The young orchard owned by Wm. Morris, near Wakefield was the orchard in the path of the storm. Yes, the one highly prized apple in the young orchard fell victim to! the frozen rain drops. This was quite a blow to Mr. Morris who had spray- ed anti cared for the wee little apple from blossom time until the storm. There was only one apple in the in- fant orchard.

CUT C GRADES I May Decide To Distribute , Them As Onclassifieds, Henceforth (Okanogan Independent) July r8, 55 representatives of the Washington boxed apple . industry will meet in Wenatchcc for the pur- i pose of eliminating certain grades {and sizes from the grade rules of the I r I state, the conference probably will eliminate C grades and apples small- er than 198's. Erie J. Barnes, state director of agriculture has called the conference. Barnes' action was brought about by petitions presented by the Wenat- chee-Okanogan and Yakima disticts a few weeks ago. It is said 75 per cent of the growers and shippers were represented in thc petitions. C grades have been consistent money losers for the industry for years, it is claimed, in view of the fact that they must compete with t le vast supply of lower grade fruit :grown in the East anti at the same it[me pay the same freight rate:that extra fancys pay, more than 80 e'ents a box. In very favorable years when the crop in the east was unusually short C grades sold for enough money to pay expenses and return a small prufit to some growers but accord- ing" to shippers these instances have been few. It is now proposed that this grade no longer bc g rapped and packed but be placed in containers unelassi. t fled, and sold to consumers iu Mon- l tana, the Dakotas and other nearby (Continued On Last Page) the batter did connect, Glascock at second took most of the.'n for put. outs.

The criticism made anti the solution offered are appropriate anti timely.) Brewster, Wash, June To The People of Brewster And Vicinity: We have started a civic betterment prog'ram in Brewster by having a Clean Up Day, stimulated interest in better lawns and gardens by giving prizes for best results in flowers and lawns, and planting trees on Biew- ster Day to beautify our city. By having the Juvenile Band in which everyone is interested, and also the Drum and Bugle Corps, anti many other projects too numerous to men. tion--but all of which are very laud. able undcrtaiin.g's and of which ev. eryone approves. Now, what many people would like to know is "Why a city that take:: pains to do all this, will let people dump tel'use right out in plain sight of the hip:hway leading into the city." There are innumerable draws and washes where all this couhl be put a- way out of sight. It would help the reputation of our city to have thi: blemish done away with. 1 am voicing the sentiments of the Triann':! Club, the Brewster Flat Ladies Aid and numerous other or- ganizaiions.

Hectic Struggle Arguments and threats of l)rotest- ing the game featured the tilt be- tween Brewster and Malott last Suit- day. A play at first base involving a runner and a fielder brought on one argument. A decision a second and a so-called mix-up at third started thc' other. But things were ironed, out and the entire nine huiings played. Gillespie and Gegncr pitched the !game for Brewster.
