Grin-] rvAl, county superintendent of schools, visited ,tlle Brewster high schooll buihling Thursday afternoon. I Mr. Twitmeyer addressed the high I school and seventh and eighth gwade stud,,mts on the subject of "Thorough- ness it] Work." Tills is the first tinle that Mr. Twit- meyer has seen the new building. He prai.,d the "new house" in his ad- This year begins Mr. Twitmeyer's fifteenth year as state inspector. He has been in the educational prof,s- ion for 32 years being principal of he Bellingham high school previous to accepting his present position. That the Brewster school students present an unusual personale of good sctmol spirit and enthusiasm, was the statement made by Mr. GrinnAI to members of the faculty. Sidelights Into The Last Twenty Years "Roasted ground hog a Is, fur coat- ing" formed a delicious dish for the Indians of Okanogan county 20 years ago. The present site of the Elliott Theatre was in that'early period the camping ground for the first lumber men of Brewster. The hotel, al- though appearing too heavy for bal- last, really made the journew from th,; mouth of the Okanogan to its present site in the early days without noticeable dalnage. Practically the first attempt to sell any of the timber of the vicinity was nlad'; by U. E. Fries. of North Star, and Antoine Kiwalski. The trees were cut in the canyon above Bisher's, where the stumps can still be en. Fries anti Kiwalski camped on the present site of the Elllott Theatre. The logs wqre shipped to Wenatch'e on the steamboat "Virgin- ia City". Today the Gamble Lumber mills are running night and day. The Indians in the vicinity were a branch of the Colville Indian. They v:ere w,ry crude in the culinary art. Ground hogs. squin'els anti sarvice berries were considered "hiyu skoo- kum muckamuck." Tea and coffee were boiled in the same kettle. One of their delicacies was wild game and sarvice berries boi/e,t to a thick ma. One time Mr. Fries was invited to a muckamuck with an Indian family, which h',,, knew well The klooeh (squaw) thrust a stick through the entire body of a freshly killed groundl hog and roasted it with the fur on.i Strange to say Mr. Fries was not hungry. Them; Indians, wer, e very proud. If one happened to come to a ranch at meal tinle, and wa not asked in he w.ould leave immediately. Mr. Fries oeently remarked after confer-I ing with an old Indian that there was no need tO speak Chinook to! them anynlore.. Their children are] educated- and the oMer aries gradual- I ly take up the "Boston man's wawa." I Brewster was tory prosp(rous in I those days, because it had much tra I by wa of the steamboats, which went from Wenatchee to Riverside. Be- fern the settlvrs came in, Okanogan county had a drouth, but the lno1 settlers that canle in, the nlore it rained. The winters were w:.i'y short and open and springs and falls were very rainy. An Indian very pithily remarked in quaint paraphrttsv. "No loston nmn--no rain, cult.s. Boston man conle--hiyu rain COllie." EDITH MCFARLANE School Holds To 4 P. M. To Benefit Students After the n,,-xt six weeks or after the first semester, school will be held until 4 P. M.. according' to a statem'nt made by Mr. Peterson in an address to the student body this week. "This will be for the benefit of those who have eeived poor grades," says Mr. Peterson, "or have failed in any of their subjects, giving them an opportunity to further help wlt,re they nlost need it." Those who have llano good work will be ex- cused at 3:15 provided they have no regular class during last period." Mr. Peterson reports that there is going to be concrete floor put in the Domestic Sei,nee room. The room will be arranged with benches and tables, and used for a lunch romn also. When the weather t)ecomes colder, there will probably be wam lunches served. Floor Partly Laid By Efforts of Boys Gleat progress was made in laying the gYm floor during Thursday and Friday of last week. Mr. Massie. Mr. Asbury, Delbert Clifford and Forest Asbury donated their time and ener- gy and as a result the floor is half finished. A good job was done anti after the surface is smoothed with a sanding machine, it will be a fine gym. Blmlcatball practice will start about the middle of November. Picture Week Held; Apples Sent To B. C. Picture week was observed by the first and second grades by m;unting several pictures and tudying them and the artists who painted them Hallow,, en decorations has been keeping tl primary grades busy for the last week. Ellen Valentine, Ernest Washburn and Junior Woods have not fallen be- low 90 in arithmetio last w.cek. Jack Goehry and Marion Bassett aru on the honor roll for the best behavior. The first and second grades have been reading the Child Health Alpha- bet books that were brought from the teachers institnte. Some lettel, booklets and a box of apples were sent last Monday by the third and fourth grades to two children near Midway, B. C. who have no fruit nor go to school. Albel Sines and Agnes Knowlton are the captains for the cleanliness contest this week. Witches, black cats. pumpkins and silhouettes are being used as the dec- orations for Hallowe'en by the third and fourth grade. Ten new pictures framed by stu- dents themselves and some crepe pa- per pumpkins have helen added to the already numerous collection of decorations by the fifth and sixth grades. Another contest is on in Miss Mas- s.s' live wire classes. The four rows are trying for honors in spell- ing. This far the row of sixth grade boys are ahead. Cigar boxes have been carved and painted successfully in attractive colors by Warren Know]- ton, Orval Hadley, Bernice Bassett, Crystal Johnson, Bobby Woods and Hazel Crossalnd. Avery Houtz has returned from Manson where his family have bon employed in the apple harvest. Who would have thought of it!

It is not mer::ly to permit Seattle and Tacoma to sell electric energy outsi:le their city limits. 2. It expressly authorizes the cry councils of these two Cities to condemn aii ligb.t m:d power properties in the state. Such property in another city, or,cc condemned by Seattle or Taco- ma, could never be retaken hy the city in which it was located 3. Statements by advoea,:es of the bill that they will not do this are worJalzzs. Yhe hill grans [his power to the city councils of Seattle and Tacoma. Timse councils, changing in every election, cannot be bound by campaign promises. If this measure is passed the taxpayers of the state will have no further voice in the matter. 4. It will raise your taxes. Property paying approximately $2,- 000,000 a year in taxes cannot be taken from the tax-rolls without increasing the taxes of every other taxpayer. 5. It gives no assurance of service to any ci:y or section of the state, nor any promise of lower rates. Service and rates everywhere will be subject te the v,'i!l of Sea(de offi:a-hold- ors. It will te an air-tight political monoply. Comport:ion will be forever eliminated. 6. Conservation of the state's water power res0.urces is not even mentioned in the bill. On the contrary, these resour- ces which belong to all the p,z, ople, will be subject to ..exclus- ive exploitation by Lc:..:e and Tacoma. READ INITIATIVE 52 AND THE ARGU MENTS ON IT IN THE OFFICIAL PAM- PHLET SENT YOU BY THE SECRETARY OF STATE Then ask yourself what possible effect the Bon Bill can have on you and your community, except to raise your taxes by the removal ef more and still more property from the tax-rolls for :he selfish purpose of Seattle and Tacoma.
