BearsWill Meet M fi ld F id ans e r ay The Brewster Bears will fire " the opening salvo on their drive towards a spot in the County and i ! District tourneys when they in- va.i Mansfield on November 30 Coach Pariseau states that to dae the Bear cagers are an un- known quantity as there has been little opportunity to test either thedr offensive or defensiv skill during practice so far. Last year the Mansfield quintet met defeat at the hands of the, Brewster basketeers on two dif- ferent occasions. But now they are potentially a much stronger foe as their first string has car- ied over from last season intact. SiSarking the Brewsterites will be Freddie Bell, veteran center, and Arni'e Bohringer, forward, both well experienced and replete with basketball, know-how. Ellsworth Hyde and Don Lau- tenslager have some experience, although Don has had difficulty getting into shape, Jack Winans, sophomore, shows promise at a guard spot. Eddy Pariseau and Dick Williams are likely first string substitutes at forward and guard respectively. Sophomore Bill Bender and Freshmen Leon- ard and Bob Williams all have possibilities. Severat boys" fighting for places on the 10man squad which will travel are Dl Lautenslager, Hal Payne, Danny Gebbers and Paul Bohringer. Inasmuch as the tray- eling squad will change from time to time competition for places is ]seen. The probable starting line-u@ as announced hy Coach Pariseau is as follows: Forwards, Arnie Bohringer and Don Lautenslage r. Center, Freddie Bell, Guards, Jack Winans and ELlsworth Hyde Substitutes and positions are: Ed- dy Pariseau, Leonard Williams, fc  -:rds, Dick Williams and Bob Williams, guards, Bill Bender, guard and forward. The next game is at Pateros on December 6th.

Farmers Are Asked To List Property. For Sale Or Lease Dougla and Chetan County farmers and landowners with good farms for rent or sale this fall can help returning World War II veterans and other quali- fied farmers fret re-established by listing such places with the Farm Security Administration office, Room 204, Post Office Annex, Wenatchee, Washington, announ- ces Elmer J. Weythman. County FSA SttperviSor. "There are a number of vter- ans and families with farm back- ground who are eligible for FSA dredt and management services if they can find good family-type farms for role or rent, Weythman said. "If these qualified farmers and their families can be set up in the County on a sound basis by FSA help, every community and business wir eventually benefit." Even former residents of the county sem to be having difficul- ty in locating suitable farms to qualify for Farm Security assis- tance. A qualified veteran or far- mer can borrow u@ to $2,500 for livestock, equipment, household goods, aml needed operating sup- plies if he can rent or lease a farm for the period of the loan, usually three to five years. Forty- year farm ownership loans bear- ing three percent interest can be made for family-type farms for sale on the basis of their long- time earning' capacity. County FSA Committeemen are working closely with the FSA of- fice in trying to locates farms and wil be glad to take informal list- ings .rom farmers or landowners in their communities. There is no obligation in listing farms with FSA as the purpose is entirely to help landless veterans and farm families ,by putting them in touch with farm owners willing to lease or sell. .Bank of Commerce of Seattle are Py Wadde:l has starti" the changing their office hours to construction of a house On AnseI 10:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. on eek. venue.-Brewster.. days and 10:00 to 12:00. noon on . . . .
