BE SURE TO PUT OUT FIRE WHEN HUNTING With the approach of the first Feace time deer hunting season, COULEE DAM, Wash.,-Oct. 4, How the thousands of war vet- erans and other settlers who ex- pect to establish homes in th Col- umbia Basin Project in south-cen- tral Washington can keep farm- development cost to a minimum and thus increase their chances for success are decribed in a Bur- eau of Reclamation publication re- lesed today by the Department of the Interior. Known as Problem 9, "Farm Im- provement", the report was pre- pared at the request of the Bureau by more than a score of experts in all branches of farming and farm economy. It discusses money aving methods under such head- ings as land clearing, leveling, and ditching, fencing, live-stock, Sarm t machinery, seeds and plant mat- : erials, domestic water supply, and i housing. i i  In cautioning that the settler always must keep overhead fore- I most in his mind, the investigators warned: "Five years is an optimis- ', tic veriod within which the entire : area (in a given farm) and irriga- i tion system may be expected to at- i tain a physical condition approadh- ing full efficiency". .... of herds from "ried ' d" " i: lsease-free hvestock f.l Iorthwest, are strong  by the farm expterts e''report.

During its study, the research .staff examined the possibility of using demountable dfense homes in the Pacific Northwest as farm dwellings in the Basin. This type .structure, says the report, is de- signed for urban close to cities with long-term housing shortages" Bureau of Reclamation officials said Problem 9 is one of 28 Bureau sponsored studies Undertaken to promote orderly development of the Columbia Basin Project, the No. 1 reclamation developments in the United States.

Although forest closures have been lifted, hunters are urged to check with local forest officers be- fore going into national foresz areas. A few days of hot, dry wind easily could bring about dangerous conditions, it is m'.'d. This fro quently happens in early October. "Real sportsmen want to play the game," said N.J. Penick, sup- ervisor of the Chelan National Forest. "They know that fire des- troys wild life, habitat, and scenic beauty• Here re some simple rues of good woodsmanship that every hunter should follow: 1. Put all smokes out, lyefore throwing them away. Don't get excited and drop that lighted cig- arette when you see a buck. 2. Put out all camp and warm- ing fires before leaving. BE SURE THEY ARE OUT. : 3. Leave a clean camp for the next hunter. Remember that it may be cold and damp today, but dry nd dangerous tomorrow then fires will spread. Let's all pull together to keep Washington green, and hunting good." Deer Season Opens With A Bang! Bang[ The Red Hat brigade began pouring into Okanogan County Tuesday and Wednesday.

NUMBER 14 By Guy LaFollette Deer Hunting Starts Sunday Next Despite Protests From Many Farmers OLYMPIA, October 3 - On Sun- day, October 7, most of Washing- ton' estimated one hundred .and fift thousand deer hunters will be in the valleys and on'he rfd'ges in eastern Washinffton [ooki]g for deer. This is the first time in four years that the season has been this early and there has been a violent storm of protest from apple grow- era in particular, who say that the season will have a damaging ef- fect on their problem of securing help for harvesting their crop be- fore Asnaging frosts are due. Meetings were held and protests filed with the Game Commission in an attempt to have the season near the close of the apple harv'est but members of the commission agreed that at the later Season dee are usually confined to a much smaller range due to storms and the kill is much greater than the normal supply of animals should suffer. Much Of The Deer Co.  Is Posted Aainst Hu As a means of prote early season, thousands  are being posted prohibiting -+hunt : d ing on the premises posted. This is a legal step which the land own- er has every right to use if he wishes to do so and estimates are that there have been as many as fifty thousand signs posted in the deer country against hunters.

Fighting Bears Lose Again i To Almira Almira is Held-Scoreless In Second Half The BrewsterHigh School foot- ball team traveled to Almira las Friday, Se, ptember 28th, to lose a hard fought game 19-6, which closed the footbal season with two wins and two defeats. Almira scored 19 points in the first half by convertir,g two Brewster fum- bles into touchdowns and €omplet- ing a long forward pass for a score on the last play of the first half. The second half witnessed the fighting Brewster Bears stage a hard driving comeback. Scorig immediately on a touchdow drive lead by Big Jim Bastin, the Bars looked like a new team. Playing the best fighting brand of foot- ball during the season, they were unable to score when the bal| was near the ,goal line. Almir di not make a first down-during the last half, while Brewster pued their opponents up and down the field, but were'unable to score at :te right moments. Pleasing to ,the Coach and to the few Brewster supporters, was the raging fighting spirit which Brewster boys dilayed in tl" last half in trying to eome,-fr behind to win. Jim Bastin an Fred Bell played fine "football throughout the game. Bob Wil- liams and Jim Wick turned in fine game in the second half as did Don Lautenslager and Ells worth Hyde. Prospects for a winning team next year appear bright with Dick Williams, Bob Williams, Jim Bas- tin, Fred Bell, Delbert Lauten- slager, Leonard Williams, Dan Gebbers and Jack Cleveland re- turning for next year, plus a issued and possibly the :largest kill of deer as well. Formats Raise And Feed Birds And Doer, Hunters From Cities ''One factor which enters into the lntiag problem every year is the fct that game birds in part- icular grow up and feed on the farmer's crops and the hunters usually come from the cities and towns, and at times damage pro- erty or kill livestock in their zeal• This is true also of deer although they do feed in high mountains in the summer on land that is government owned. At that, the feed that is consumed by deer is not available to other types of livestock. People in the smaller connuni- ties are not hostile to the hunter as a rule. In the Methow Valley a service is maintained at Twisp for the convenience and information of hunters in that great game corn munity. Mas and general infor- mation is to ;be had there. From Stevens, Ferry and Peud Oreille counties the word is hat there is a large crop of game birds this year. The season for them opens October 14 and will con- tinue until November 4 for phea- sants and until the end of the year for deks. Hunters are warned to observe hunting hours as announced by the game department eceptin that all time should be changed by subtracting one hour as the tables were made up before the change to standard time was announced. Everyone, hunters and all others, should use careto prevent accidents, for with this increase in the armY of hunters there could be many more accidents than ever lyefore. little Stories About The State State Treasurer Russell H.
