%- i, ii VOLUME NO. 29. BREWSTER'S BRIDGE. THE GATEWAY TO AND THE t OUTLET BUELL POSTS "NO TRESSP.SS" SIGNS _ t FER"PEOPLE SECURE AN IN- JUNCTION AGAINST THE BRIDGE CO. "Tresapassing on shore lands lead- ing to Brewster Ferry is hereby pro- hibited and tresspassers will b,: prosecuted." The above is the wording of a sign posted along side the ferry road lea4ing to the Brewster Ferry. IL . .... seems as though Mr. Buell of the Bridge Co., has secured control ot the shore lands, from the state, eln- bracifig those shore'lands which have been used by the ferry interests for so long. This will probabi lead to 'another of a long list of some 30 court cases which have.involved the Bridge and Ferryr companys, and it begins to" . look like the bridge peoIJle would now take an inning. In one of the suits brought a'gainst the Bridge Co. by the Ferry interests some time ago a jury' of the Super-I ior Court allowed.S8,.000 damages a- ' gainst the Bridg ' Co. for a landing on the Douglas county side u the -. river and it now begins to look as though the ferry interests might have to spend some of the ,money for a ferry landing on this side.of the riv- er on the Buell property. However the outcome is being watcher with considerable interest by the people here.. It is liabJe to ell- gender conside.rable ill feeling befor it is ended. ' it is reported that some of "the signs have already been torn down." 'It is also reported that the ferry, people, have secured an injunc- .tk, against the Bridge Co. for in- '. terfering with their landings . The ' injunction proceedings are to be " heard the latter part of this month.

JL I 2 CAR SMASHUPS OVER WEEK-END SIX CAR IS PULVERIZED WHEN ! I IT LEAVES ROAD ON TIE WELLS GRADE Blinded by the lights of an ap- proaching car, Ben Six of Bridgeport lost control ofthe Chrysler Sedan he was driving on Wells grade last Sat- urday night. Those n the .ear were Mr. and Mrs. Ben Six and Mr. and Mrs. Rudolph Deffland, they were returning from a dance at Chelan. The car rolled down the hillside among the rocks for a distance of about 150 feet and was practically demolished. Beyond a few brulses and scratches from flying glass none of the occupants was severely injur- ed. Those in the wreck anl those who lave seen the car have expressed great wonderment that no one suf- fered any greater injury. The car body looks as though some one had taken a sledge hammer and went at the work of pounding it out of shape in a systematic manner. The tires can be salvaged and possibly the mo- tor and some parts. The ear was towed to the Six Garage in Bridge- port. Monday afternoon, a Chevrolet touring, driven by Richard Bastt, was rammed by an Oakland coupe, driven by Mrs. G. E. Axtams of Kelowna, Be C. The accident oceur- ed just the other side of the white bridge between Brewster and Patre- OS. ' Mrs. Adams los eontrol of her ear as it neared the Chev and whipped it across the road toward the Bassett car which was hugging the bank. The Chev, which is in the Brevster Mo- tor .Co. garage here has a shattered front wheel bent frame, crumpled fender and light and a bally dented body. The damage t o it has been estimated at between $200 and $250. kNone of the occupants of either ear was "seriously hurt. The Oakland is in the Ford Gar- age at Pateros, it has a bent front axle and dented fender. Ir. and Mrs. Adams and daugther were going from Seattle to Kelow- ha. They took the stage from Pa- teros to' 0roville. EDUCATION TO AID IN, FIRE PREVENTION Discarded from a passing motor car, a smouldering cigarette lies on a highway that penetrates a virgin forest. A "side swish"of air from a passing car whisks it into the dry 'rass at the side of the road. Sud- denly it bursts into flame; grows sinister, as twisting with the breeze it spreads rapidly! Soon there is born a raging, devastating inferno A FOREST FIRE--against which man is but a mite, Acres of virgin forest laid waste; birds and beasts burned to death; perhaps even our fellow-men lose their lives in a valient attempt ,' to stem the conflagration. And all be- cause a careless passenger of the, highway, thoughtlessly flicked a lighted cigarette out of his or her ear. Such is the gruesome drama re- peated many times in the 30,00,0 an- nually recorded fires caused by ar lessly discarded matches, cigarettes or cigars. With the greater exten- sion of highways into dense forest lands and the growing volume of mo- tor traffic there is bound to be an increasing danger, unless definite steps are tkaen for prevention. It is a Herculean task for any group of men such as the United States Forest Service to cope with the sit- uation, unless they can be assured of the unqualified cooperation of every user of the highways and every citi- zen interested in the future develop- ment of our national resources There must be a conscious inter- est on the part of every motorist to the extent that the appantly in- nocent "slnoke" will be recognized as a far more potential force of un- happy destruction than driving on the wrong side of the roaAAND IT IS INFINITELY WORSE--when its caerless user throws it unthinkingly ]where it can begin its destructive NUMBER 15. i i nn,, Ul i ,n WIND MARS PLEASURE AT ALTA LAKE PICNIC LACK OF CONTESTANTS; DIJE SMALLER CROWD THAN EXPECTED (Pateros Reporter) 'A fair crowd attended the super- community picnic at Alta Lake, on Labor Day, but was probably less than half the size of the one which would have been there if .it bad been a better day. Those who came, how- ever, enjoyed themselves in spite of the disagreeably high wind, am', tlle picnic was far from being a faihu'e. Some of the events had to bc can- celled on account of lack of entrants but the ohes which were staged were closely contested and caused no end of excitement. A list of prize winners is given be- low: In the fishing cintest, the hmnan fish won in both instances. AJ Schu- nerman snapped his line when the fish, John Branton, was only halfway to the mark. Arlie O'Leary, who played fish for C. E. Meredith, was too much for Meredith's line which broke when Arlie was within a few feet of the mark. The 10 foot swim, for boys 16 and under, was won by Dermott Hes- lop, with Rector Billingsley second. These two boys were also close con- testants in the long swimming race across the lake Dermott winning by a lead of less than three feet. Ralph Hastings also entered this race but was easily out-speeded hy the heav- ier boys, although he finished the swim in good time. Edwin C. Wedell, of Omak won the first prize for diving, with his brother Glenn running hi,m a clos second. The Wedell brothers also tried to duck Arlie O'Leary and C. E. Meredith in the jousting contest, but when the spears prooved too limber for the battle it was called a draw. Dermott Heslop Won the boys footrace of 100 yards, Merton M c- kee coming in second. The mile and a half marathon free for all was won by Herbert Miller, with Morris Pettit coming in second. W. D. Crandall and J. A. Rutledge won one set of barnyard golf, and C. H. Barnes and Levi Harper won second place. While it was too windy for the bait casters to do their best, a nice record was Imng up by Perr: Brew- er oP Dryden, who set a nark of 147.2 feet. C. E. Meredith cast 136.2 feet. No fly casting was tried on account of the wind. Prizes which were not awarded on account of lack of entries, are being held by the committee for some fu- ture event. In case this is not satis- faetory to any of the donors, their prizes will be returned upon applica- tion to Chester Tuper. work. It has been estimated that 17,000 burned 'or burning cigarettes are dis- carded every minute of every day, or a total of 90 billion annually: If but half of 1 per cent of these is tossed from the windows cabs or other corn partments of higlway vehicles, the tremendous task of discouraging this practice can be readily appreciated. Every smoker in the country has a share of responsibility in the preven- tion of this needless destruction. Our forests are your property just as much as is the Oriental rug in the living room and it is just as unwise to discard that burning cigarette or cigar onto the highway as it would be to drop it onto the rug and allow it to smoulder and ignite. As a mat- ter of fact the damage to the home would be inconsequental when com- pared to the millions of dollars an- nually lost through forest fires which lay waste vast areas of otherwise productive lamt. The operator of every large fleet of trucks or busses can exert a valuable influence and perform a worth while public ser- vice by taklng a few minutes to im- press upon each and every driver the importance of utmost care in this direction. If every driver and oc- cupant of a motor vehicle would stop to think for a moment that the in- (Continued on Last; Page)
