BREWSTER'S BRIDGE; THE GATEWAY TO AND THE OUTLET FOR THE GREAT CARIBO0 TRAIL. BREW STER HERALD PUBLISHED IN THE INTEREST OF AND TO THE "GATEWAY TO THE FAMOUS OKANOGAN COUNTRY. ' VOLUME NO. 32. BREWSTER, - .._ J ! L ll'Itl it t i i I t II t ti t tt tm i Jw Drt00m.o Landslide OKANOGAN COUNT v, WASHINGTON. Sweeps Nation ROOSEVELT, MARTIN, BONE, MYERS ARE WINNERS. I COUNTY FOLLOWS STATE AND NATION. ,.J.,. DECISIVE VOTE SHOWS TREND OF NATIONAL OPINION. STATE OFFICIALS OUSTED, EXCEPTING SHOWALTER. Piling up the greatest total of electoral votes ever ac- corded a presidential Candidate, Franklin Delano Roose- velt was chosen asthe next President of the United States in the Democratic avalinche last Tusday. Very shortly after early returns were known it became certain that Roosvelt and Garner would be victorious and each pass- ing hourincreased their lead over Hoover and Curtis. The new electoral vote record set by Roosevelt gives him 472 out Of 531. This surpasses the record of 1928 when Hoover received 444 against 87 for Al Smith. Martin And Meyers To Guide State Clarence D. Martin of Cheney and Victor.A. Meyers, of Seattle are to be Governor and Lieutenant-Governorl of this state. Martin has a very good lead over John A. i Gellatly, Republican nominee. At fimt Meyers and Falk- nor ran a close race but eventually the Seattle orchestra! leader forged ahead. Jones Is Defeated By Bone Homer T. Bone, Tacoma, will replace Wesley Jones as United States Senator. Bone received Democratic votes to give him nearly a 2 to 1 lead over the veteran Republi- can senator. All state officials, with the exception of Noah D. Showalter, superintendent of public instruction, will be replaced by Democrats. Showalter had no opposition on the Democratic ticket and AIfa Salmon Ventzke, Liberty candidate polled only about 10,000 votes. Otto Case will be the neW treasurer, winning over Homer Jones. Land Commissioaer Savidge loses to A. C. Martin. John Dunbar, attorney general will make way for G. W. Hamilton. J. Grant Hinkle, secretary of sta'te lost to Huchinson, and C. W. Clausen, state auditor was beat- en by Cliff Yelle. County Is No Exception County officers will keep state officials company in the matter. Peterson and Eber, Republican candidates for county commissioner had lost to Mitchell and Farver at this writing.  Douglas and Okanogan counties elected Jones of Waterville and Banker of Winthrop, Democrats, as state representatives, over Moni'oe of Brewster and Bolinger of Carlton. ELECTION PICK-UPS HERE AND THERE ber, did a good job when he made the ballot box. Hearing that the bal- lots were to be 2 feet square, Mr. Geissler fashioned a ballot box about 130 inches in diameter and three feet deep, equipped with lock and fun- nel shaped opening. As D. D. Holland remarked, the elections in Brewster are very peace- able affairs, no fights, heated argu- ments or rag-chewing contests. Quite a contrast to some precincts where fffieers of the law are necessarily resent. Sometime Monday night or Tues- day morning, a sidewalk artist got busy with colored crayons, marking the sidewalks advising voters to vote "No" on 61. Phrases such as "We want shoes not booze--bread not beer," were prominen t . One local business man stated that before go- ing to the polls he had nearly decid- ed to vote "No," but when he no- ticed the sidewalk admonitions he changed his mind aht voted "For." EXPECTS BASIN BILL TO PASS NEXT CONGRESS Officials Confident That Top Of The Hill Is In Sight "The top of the hill is in sight and the long up-hill fight for the Colum- bia Basin Project is nearly won," said Roy R. Gill, chairman of the Execu- tive Committee of the Columbia Ba- sin Irrigation League, at a public luncheon in Spokane recently. The League will make a drive at the next session of Congress that is believed will put the authorization bill through. It already has the approval of the Interior Department, the War Depart- ment, the Budget Bureau and Recla- mation committees of both house and senate. "Chances Are Good" "The bill retains the same position on the calendar at the short session that it held at the session ending in July," said Mr. Gill. "It only re- mains to be brought to a vote and League officials are confident that it can be passed." This feeling also permeated the llth Annual meeting of the League, in Spokane, October 25, and was re- flected by Dr. Elwood Mead, Com- missioner of Reclamation, honor guest, when he said: "Chances are good that you peo- ple will get your Columbia Basin Authorization bill through the next Congress." BALLOT COUNT TAKES TWENTY HOURS HERE How would you like to have been on the election board in Brewster? If you can survive a 35 hour shift i you can pass one of the tests, for :that's about the length of time the board was on the job here. The polls opened at 8 a. m. and closed,ixt 8 p. m. and then the bal- lot count started. The ballots were large and the vote badly split up in several instances. The board mem- bers completed the tally at about 4 p. m. Wednesday. They didn't take any time out for sleep, either, Myrtle Gamble, J. W. Geissler and C. D. Gillespie comprise the board here. WM. C. BROWN Re-Elected Superior Court Judge, Okanogan County He-hum, if you want to get a good laugh, just read a newspaper of a- bout a week ago and note some of the election predictions. Then com- pare with election results, writers ex- pressed "confidence that so-and-so and so-and-so, etc., would be elected ,y huge majorities." You can say one thing for defeat- ed candidates, they don't delay mat- ters when it come. to Serlding con- gratulatory messages to their more fortunate opponents. Some of the messages are simply worded', others ave more flowey. But it's a nice gesture and a graceful way of admit- ting defeat, Stray remarks at th'e polls: "You could paper a room with five of these ballots." "Don't run over three to the dozen, do they " "Why I thought they had separate ballots for each party." ,'I've seen saddle blankets smaller than these ballots." J. W. Geissler, election board mere- NOVEMBER 11, 1932 NUMBER 26 t ii ii imil, i ..

GRADE Gillespie, who gets a buck every year, was hunting near the Gamble Mill on Paradise Hill. After careful- Supreme Court Says Tribu- nal Must Give Right Of Injunction Okanogan Independent:--The Su- preme Court has upheld the right of Washington apple growers to ship No. 3 grade apples in standard boxes and wrappings, reversing a Yakima Superior Court judgment which de- nied R. D. Inmau an injunction re- straining Director of Agriculture Erle J. Barnes from enforcing a regula- tion prohibiting such shipments. The Yakima court had denied In- man injunction rig'hts in the case. The high court held the statute gave such authority but the ruling was "unreasonably discriminatory a- i gainst third grade apples in favor of !first and second grades, and in vio- lation of that provision of the State Constitution which states 'no person shall be deprived of life, liberty or property without due process of law.' "Our conclusion is that appellant is entitled to injunctive relief re- straining the director of agriculture from enforcing the rule adopted and promulgated by him, August 1, 1932, in so far as that rule provides that the third grade apples shall not be wrapped, nor packed nor lidded in standard apple boxes of the State of Washington." The case was remanded to the lower court with directions to give Inman relief, by unanimous decision. ! LOOP LOOP JOB LET TO BUTLER The weather mau dished up un- satisfactory atmospheric conditions for the open season on deer in this county, according to ninny hunters. During the ost of the season, rain and snow made hunting disagreeable and kept the game from moving a- round a great deal. Wm. Robinson, who was guiding a party of Tacoma men on Robinson creek, says that most of the time it was impossible to move about in the woods without getting wet through ly trailing a deer for some time, he peeped through the bushes and saw the deer--asleep. One shot and thel hunt was over. Walt Hacker has probably the best luck of any man in town. During :the bear season Iiacker shot one of the bruins within three hours after going out and last Sunday he had shot and dressed his buck within two hours after going out. It is believed that the final check- up will show less deer taken thi year than last, when over 1,000 buck were taken out of this county. During the past several days some very nice looking deer have been seen on cars going tb.rough Brewster. In one instance a Ford coupe was no- ticed with three hunters inside and three deer tied on the outside of the car. A. F. G. TO FINISH RUN THIS WEEK According to L. L. Allyn, the A- merican Fruit Growers here will fin- ish the 1932 apple pack today or to- morrow. Yesterday the run ended at the Beebe shed and if the crew works today, the run at the Smith shed will be practically completed. The A. F. G. still has about a week's work at .Pateros with both day and night crews at work. Present indications are that the run at the Brewster District Unit will be completed in a week or ten days. STORES CLOSED HERE TODAYARMISTICE Practically all the stores and busi- ness houses in Brewster are closed today in observance of Armistice. Service station, restaurants, foun- tains, etc are remaining open. Many of the Legion members from the Brewster post will attend special American Legion services in Omak, today. TO TELL OF EARLY DAYS IN BIG BEND "Pioneer Tales of Ranch Life in the Big Bend Country" is the gen- eral title under which J. L. Ashlock, l associ.e professor of journalism at :the state college, will broadcast a series of stories during the school year. Mr. Ashloek will speak over KWSC college station, during the farmers' evening hour at 6:45 on Fridays. He will speak from experience. .Mr. Ashlock spent his boYhood on a ranch in central Washington. From his experiences he has written a series of vivid tales. In his series of talks he will include experinces in a covered wag'on, coming of the earliest immigrants, tales of the Indians, hard times in the long winters, early de- bates and debaters and friends a- mong the birds and beasts. The job of constructing six miles on the Loop Loop highway from the end of the present improve'nent east of Twisp, toward the summit, has been let to W. T. Butler of Seattle. The contract was let last Thursday on Butler's estimate of $48,865. The new highway when completed will give residents of the upper Met- how valley .'t shorter and more con- venient route to the county seat. WILL PAY OFF FREAK BET SATURDAY NITE Accordin.g to Merle Attridge, the freak election bet that he and George Thayer ma(le, will be paid off on Saturday night, November 12, at 8 o'clock. According to the terms of the bet, as published in the Herald last Aug- ust, the loser must strip down to his B. V. D.'s, don a plug hat and wheel the winner in a wlmelbarrow from the Shell Super-Service station down to the Brewster Hotel and back to the Washington Water Power office. Attridge pinned his faith on Roose- velt anti Thayer bet on Hoover, so[ Attridge gets the free ride. Martin I Larson, who is in charge of highways I for this district, will probably be I here and Joe McCauley may be pres- ent to clear the road.
