GILLESPIE, Editor and Manager ntered as second class matter at Brewstcr, Washington. | ilL WEEKLY MAXIM: "Mortal Man Dies Only Once, But Once Always Proves Entirely Sufficient." Bug And Use Them MARTIN IS ON THE JOB Clarence D. Martin, Governor-Elect of the state, is roving his ability by his attitude towards the Columbia asin Project. Mr. Martin is going down the line in favor of the huge project and he has pledged state aid as far as possible,' when he becomes Governor of the State of Washington. It is said that the newly elected Governor will work with E. F. Banker on a program to aid the project and that Mr. Martin will include in his address to the Legisla- ture some message in favor of the Columbia Basin. It is said that Governor Martin may go to Washington to add prestige to the Basin Project. In case he should make the trip after he becomes Governor, Vic Meyers, lieutenant-governor-elect will act in place of Mr. Martin. The wheels of progress are turning steadily, but it will take co-operation from every possible source to get the Columbia River dam under construction. f.j .r.

English III Class HAPPINESS By Elsie Baitz Just to be tender, just to be true; Just to be glad the whole day through ; Just to be merciful, just to be mild Just to be trustful as a child; Just to be gentle and kind and sweet; Just to be helpful with willing feet; Just to be cheery when things go wrong' Just to drive sadness away with a song, Whether the hour is dark or bright Just to be loyal to God and right. It is not always easy to be cheer- ful but happiness comes to those who try each day to be helpful, loyal kind and true. Little deeds become great ones if they are done cheerfully. Kind words spoken to one in distress, may bringl pleasure to many. We may wish to be happy but our wishing will avail us nothing unless it i,s followed up with serious en- deavor. When we wish the world a- bout us would be better we should watch our actions; and keep them straight and true. We should keep our thoughts high and clean; rid our minds of selfish motives. Thereby making our own little spere a better place in which to live.

I told Charley and Mr. John Duff, state highway engineer for this district and who has headquarters at Wenatchee, is one man who should be retained by the incoming state administration. Motorists need not study road maps to learn in what district they are traveling, the clean condition of the roads, road crews keeping them ship-shape, attention to smallest details, is a part of Mr. Duff's work. The high- ways in this district have never been in better shape than today and we hope that Mr. Duff is kept on the job so that the same efficient engineering may be had. All people in this district are familiar with Mr. Duff's work and nothing but praise is heard for him and his staff of assistants. It is sincerely hoped that Hen. Clarence D. Martin re- tains Mr. Duff in charge of the highways in this district, and we are not alone, as it seems to be the general wish of all concerned, i f- ,4- , . .3*, Maurice to watch the gate and I would cut the animals out. I start- ed them out but a white face two- year-oht made a run for the boys and they gave her a lot of room to run. Then I ame to a white heifer and I told them to keep her in the corral if they could. She started out with some other cows and Charley started to hit her with a club and she almost ran over him. Then we tried to get her in the corral out of the yard but she went through the yard fence and got into the field. Charley and Mauri(t got on the horses but she jumped out of the field and on the range. We ran her clown and got her in the yard but she jumped four brbed-wire fences before we did. That afternoon we sold her and four other to Mr. Pine. We had to take them down to Mr. Davis where they were loaded in a truck. We had quite a bit of fun before we got them loaded.

Throughout the world among upward struggling peoples, wherever parents share in aspirations of their children, the American com- mon school is being copied. Let us cherish and improve our schools. REPORT OF DELEGATES Last Tuesday the delegates who were elected to go to the University of Washington, gave us a report of their many adventures. They enjoy- ed the trip and reached their destin- ation without much trouble. The boys were entertained at a fraternity house while Doris enjoyed herself at a sorority house. They all attend- ed many meetings where they learn- ed a great deal. Our school was com- pared with other schools and the delegates were surprised that a school Kansas City thieves carried away a two-story, seven room house, and if the owner hadn't dug a celler in the first place he would have suffered a total loss.

AN AFTERNOON AT THE NEIGHBOR'S "Coma on", some one would say, "let's go to the barn and jump on the hay." Away we would go down to the big barn. We would go in the big door, then down behind the horses and around the end of the mangers to the big ladder that went up to the main hay loft. "I want to go first," some one would cry, then there would be a great scrambling up the ladder and across the hay to the other end of the barn where there was a small mow of hay over the cows. The first one there would yell at the top of his voice and down he would go. Just as soon as one was out of the way the next one would jump uptil all were down. Then there would be another scramble up the ladders and down again, i We would soon tire of this and I some one would suggest that we go] l down to the creek and build a dam.] Everyone would run as fast as he could and splash into the creek. Two or three would get a log and lay a- cross the creek and they everyone would get mud and sod and throw in behind the log.

The Physics class is working on the vaporization of liquids. The Economics class is busy learn- ing about the problem of distribu- tion. The Shorthand class is interested in learning how to make the "oo" hook and when to use it. In the World History class the pu- pils are learning some very interest- ing facts about the Romans. The General Science class is study- ing about the atmosphere and what it does for the earth. The English I class is interested in the study of ballads. Some of those they have read are "Bonny Barbara Allen," and "The Battle of Otter- bourne." They will try their hands at composing a ballad soon. The Chemistry class has been ex- perimentinng with sodium hydroxide and studying about the structure of the atom. The civics class is learning more about the laws and-how they are formed. The Latin class is struggling to master the cases and the vocabulary. The pupils of English IIl class are If you want to obtain the most wear and satisfaction from your e- lectric motor, do not use excessive tension on your belting, advises Har- ry L. Garret, electrical investigator at Washington State college. It is better to use large pulleys and wider belts. Continuous, heavy overloads will cause overheating and eventual breakdown of insulation. It is cheaper to use a motor with suf- ficient normal rated capacity to carry your load. The motor should be protected by overload limiting devices. The devic- es should not be changed even if the overload job will not take long. It is too easy to forget the change, be- lieves Mr. Garver. When installing a motor, the shaft should be set level if it is a horizontal type motor. The end brackets may be removed and ro- tated so that the oil wells "will be in their proper position when the motor is setting" on the floor, hung on the wall or from the ceiling.

Mr. Pendletn, do you believe that it is God's wish that you do more a- ,gainst Christianity than for it? Do i you believe that the precepts and doctrines taught by Christ call for !the work you are carr;ing on? Have i you as many followers today as when i you first took up the work here? Is l lt not a fact that .many people have stopped church work during the past few months? Do you think that God sanctions activities that drive those who wish fo follow God's work, from thd Church I believe that your very heart is bubbling over with enthusiasm, bub- bling over with sincerity. Do you not believe that you would accomplish more by extending tie hand of friendship, by offering a cup of kind- ness to your fellowman, than to keep the prod well sharpened and use it in what might be termed deadly fash- ion ? I well know that al! are not per- fect, but remember Mr. Pendleton, "you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make him drink. It is a fact that many people jn BrawNier that have not slipped too far down into the depths of sin would like to grasp the hand and be lifted to high- er levels, that they may see the cloud's silver lining and do the things that God bids them do. instead of the methods you use and by so doing you are losing much ground, would it not be better to throw out the life-line and try sav- ing by other methods.

Respectfully A READER READER REVIEWS ELECTION IN ,A HUMOROUS FASHION Editor Brewster Herald: In a Liberty Party paper which was sent around just before election, a statement was made that Monse was 100 per cent Liberty .Party. This paper was honest in that remark as it did look that way. it was before Hoover broadcast his remark that if Roosevelt was elected the grass !would grow. That had an awful ef- fect on Monse and vicinity as we are nearly all stock-raisers and we voted foe Roosevelt as ws wanted ore grass. Now the 5 that did vote for Hoover owned motor ears.
