Church ) HERALD - REPO'RTER. OFFICIAL PAPER FOR THE 1 VOLUME NO. 45 rl i " Little and Too Late" Might Be Ours Te tragic consequences of "too little and tpo late" are plain- ry visible in the Chelan school bus ragedy. Bitter recriminations, in- variably follow such a disaster be- cause it is then realized it was PREVENTABLE. Right here in Brewster we are faced with the immediate danger of similar tragedy and similar ir- revocable loss of life. The terrific speed at which trucks of all descriptions and au- tomobiles as well traverse our highways is a disgrace. These high ways where any semblance of a reasonable rate of travel is utterly disregarded are OUR streets. Individual acceptance and dis- charge of responsibility is an inte- gral factor of democratic philoso- phy. It is our responsility to call this dangerous speeding to the attention of Brewster citizens. It is the CounciYs responsibility to see to it that clearly marked signs designating a reasonable speed limit are placed on the entrance ways to Brewster. tt is the citi- zens' responsibility to demand such action NOW It is the school's responsibility to instruct students, particularly the younger ones, in precautionary safety measures, such as crossing at the proper places rather than jay- walking; looking to left and right; walking not running at crossings. It is the parents responsibility to see to it that their youngsters do not play in the streets. It is the truck driver's remponsbility to drive slowly and carefully for the use of our streets is a privilege not license. And it is the Laws re- sponsibility to see to it that s@eed violators are met with legal un- ishment. The safest highway in the world along Lake Chtlan in the future will not replace the live lost there.

Arvde Bohringer, Brewster cap- tain and coo!, speedy orward, was easily the star of both con- tests. Jack Winans, 1all guard, was a defensive stalwart against Pateros. Freddie Btll, veteran center, showed improvement in the backboard department against Riverside. Showing considerable improve- ment both offensively ami defen- siwely the lOcal club shows fine possibilities. Their greatest weak- ness is inaccurate shooting which should develop as play continues. At Pateros the Bears sank 12 goals and 14 in the Riverside con- test here. Pateros made 5 field goals-and Riverside 7. The boys now face three gruel- ing contests in but five days, en- gaging Okanogan here Friday, Deeenber 14th. The only break is that it is the season opener for Okanogan.

The following night, Dec. 15th, the Bears travel to Chelan which is also reported a mighty smooth club and condition of the local hoopsters will be an important fac tor in determining th outcome of this contest. On Dec. 18th Twisp will play here. Not too much is known as to just what the Twisp- ors will have on the ball but the home club's ability to stand the pace will again tell the tale. .
