Dick, manager of the Brew- tser Theatre, announced by means of the screen this week end, that after Wednesday November 27 there i would be no showing of movies un-' til further notice. In the winter months the atten- dance falls off to such an extent that it is not practical to continue to operate the theatre. It will be remembered that Mr. Dick did not operate the theatre last winter fro.m about this time until the latter part of January.

IMPROVE THIS PART OF STATE HIGHWAY ROCK CRUSHER AND sCRW.ENER" BEING INSTALLED NEAR ELLIOTT'S FILL Nelson Construction Co., ?f Wen- atchee has been awarded the con- tract for surfacing with Crushed rock a portion of the State Highway! No. 10. The part of the road to be resurfaeed is. fro Pateros to about there miles above Brewster. A crew is now bu on the rood about two and one half miles above town. An extension has been run from the Washington Water Power lines to the other side of EUiott's Fill and two transformers connected to supply power to operate a rock crusher and screener. This crusher and screener is located next to the bank, on the road about one hundred yards above the fill. A gasoline shovel is being used to widen the road in various places and to cut down the points of the bank on the curves. W3tere washouts have occurred, the shoulders of the highway are being built up, making the roadbed considerably wider. sources. The principal resources of them are wood, water, forage, and recreational facilities. A fandamen- tal principle in Forest Service ad- ministration is what is known as "sustained yield," the rate of utiliza- tion of timber or forage never ex- ceeding the rate of growth and re- placement. Watershed protection is one of the most important national forest functions, as the permanency of water supply, regularity of stream flow, and prevention of floods in many regions depend largely upon the condition of national forest wa- tersheds. More than 780 cities and towns draw their water supilies from watersheds within national for- ests. The mining laws of the United States are applicable within the na- tional forests and the development of the extensive mineral resources which these forests contain pro- :cede without restriction.

WARNS AGAINST FAKE SOLICITORS En]'gn Lottie B. Sehell, of the Salvatio n Army was in .town Monday and asked that the citizens here be cautious about donating to any Sal- vation Ar:ny representative, until they are shown s or her creden- tials. Ensign Schell states that the or- ganziation has one regular solicitor i in this territory, and this solicior carrier proper idenification papers. War Cries may be sold in this sec- tionby Wenatehee attimes, but they are always given special permits from ,headquarters, and are always willin to Show these permits. So- licitors also carry permits from the local authorities Or 'committee. Last spring a man with a Salva- tion Army uniform solicited in sev- eral small towns in this valley, for his own perso.nal gain. He had not been given a permit and consequent- ly was soon apprehended. Ensign Schell asks that donations be given only to the authorized so- licitor.. 7 STATES ABOLISH ROAD SPEED LIMITS Seattle, November 28  Seven states now have discarded motor ve- hicle speed limits on the open road ani deal with rural speeds solely on the basis pf reasonable and proper, according to the Automobile Club.of Washington which reports that the present day tendency is to permit froster car operation with stricter de- finition of the term, "reckless driv- ing." However, the motor association finds that in city districts, espec- ially, where congestion is heavy, the avelltge llowable: speed is about 20 miles an hour with a reduction of-5 miles at intersections ,while passing sch0ol or on curves. Nevada has raised its speed limit on the highway to 50 miles an hour but has retained the 20 mile limit in cities. Alabama, Illinois, Louisiana, New Mexico, Ohio and Texas have increased the rural lhnit to 45 miles an .hour but have retained the av,- erage lower speods in cities. Washington now has a 40 mile limit on highways with 25 mile al- lowed on city arterial streets, 20 miles on secondary streets and 15 miles at intersections, or at other points where danger exists. ::/' / )i
