FRIDAY, i i I DECEMBER 16 1921 NUMBER 26 GRATIFYING RESULTS iOkanogan Skookun growers will be pleased with the information that all previous records of the Northwest- ern Fruit Exchange sales agents of various units of the Skookum Pack- ers Association have been broken in the amount of money returned t o the growers during the month of October During the 31 dys ending Oct. 31 the Exchange rem;itted to its shippers net proceeds totaling the very impressive sum of $801. 773.11. This amount was net to the shippers, all marketing, ad- vertising and other charges having been first deducted. Of this total $477. 926 went to the Skookum shippers in the Wenatchee-North district. Comparison witll last year empha- sizes the llrtl)ortance of this record, for during the month of October last year the total remittance of .proceeds a- uounted to only $311,348.70, while the total for the Wenatchee-North shippers was only $87,6 4.67. In other words Skookum payments to its Wen- atchee and Okanogan valley units for October 1921 .exceeded returns for the same period 1920 by $390301.79 and remittances to all Skookum shllpers over the Northwest. October 1921. ex- ceeded its returns October 1920 by $490.424.41. Wenatchee Skookum received net proceeds during October 1921 of $510048.10 as agalnsfi nothing last year. IN other words none of tlmir cars had been cleared. Onmk received this Oc- tober $65,743.81 as against $1470.08 last year. Brewster, Pateros also made a similar showing. The early fruit money is having Its effect on the eco.nomic llf of this trict and the entire northwest In the liquidation of bank loahs, payments of mercantile credits and the saving to growers in :large sums of interest an,l also the tr'menduous improvement in the credit of the growers.

BREATH HELD FOR TEN MINUTES M. De Lalyman the Frenchman who Is said to be able to remain under water long enough to shave himself, peel and eat a potato, and drink wine. appears to have brought the art of breath con- trol to a fine point. How long he remains under water is not stated, but if he stays there longer than ten he ha certainly brok- en the breath-holding record. That belongs---or belonged--to a stu dent of the Medical School of Califor, nia University, who, in July 1915, eel. untarlly held his breath for ten min- utes ten seconds. He waq under observation the whole time. His breathing organs were connected with a Kym,ogrPph, which would have recorded the slightest in- spiration. Mrs. L, E. Ho,llenbeck of Brewster arrived on the South branch train Fri. day. She will tetch school near Gel den this winter.OroviUe Gazette.

"][;1 W A ,: COUNTY ROADS INELIGIBLE Many counties are seeking l?ederal ahl for purely county roads and state biglway officials believe many peop!e.. de, not understand the restricti.ons placed on'Federal moneys by Congress Under the new law only 7 per cent of a states total road mileage can Fo into a Fderal i(1 system and this ' must be divided into primaT, or interstate, highways, aud secondary or onnecting intercounty roads. The whole road system which is to receive Federal aid must be approved by the U S. Bureau of Roads, through the Secretary of Agriculture, before funds are inside available for any project. All work must be done by the state highway department. Washington's road system has ah'eady been "submit- ted for approval. The highway division says as far as possible federal aid moneys will be distrlbuted throughout the state, the' as it is nearly finished the Pacltic high way probably will be the first road pa.ved for its entire lengttl. When- eve.r Federal money is pplied to the building of a state road, it releases just that much of statd funds for con- struction elsewhere. WRONG MAN GOT A'PPLES i'lores a good story on tbe Depart. mcnt of Public Works: Some time ago complaint was made regardin,g the condition of a station on one of the transcontinental roads. After lnves- tigtion the department compelled nnprovements to the waiting room, placing of a guard rail about the plat- : form and installation of electric lights everywhere. Recently a high Depart- sent official traveling by the station I at night saw a railway mail clerk gath- [ ering the mail from a well 41ghted cor- I nor of the platform and asked him how I be,liked the improvements. I Oh fine,' he exclaimed, "Why we I felt so good about it that we took up l a collection among tlm boys a.nd sent i a box of apples to each of the officials I of the railroad." I I LATECoMERS SEEK BONUS I I i itor s office to allow theh' elalms. Prof- ] Ring by tile exl)erlenee of o'hers whose ) chdnls were hehl up because of errors, I Llm laecomers are submitting their I applications in good erder. A Seattle [ veteran, who has Just applied, said lie[ will ,give his money to the wounded t veterans' relief fund. Tere sHIl are[ nmre titan 3500 veteraps who h te not l I replied to letters asking them to ctr-I [rect their original applications. [ APPLICATIONS FOR GRAZING PERMITS Applieatlons for permits to graze ('ttle;..hprsea and shme9 within the Chelan National Forest during the sea. son of 1922 must be filed in the For- est Supervisor's office at Okanogan, Washtugton| on or before Jan. 15, 1921. lull lnformution in regard to the graz- ing fees to be charged and blank for- ms to be used In making application will be furnished upon request. Ap- plications for permits should be made n person, for cattle and horse, through out the local rangers and for sheep to the Supervisor at the Woolgrowers Meeting at Yakima, Washington, Jan. 14 to 15. No definite information has bees received in regard to the State Land Excha:ge and applications will be re. ceived for the area as in the past. A schedule of dates will be arrange[1 for meetings of the various assochtUons which will be published later. It is planned that a member of the Supar- visors office will attend each meeting. P. T. Harris, Forest Supervisor. OKANOGA,N,ITE8 AT CHENEY Four students from Okanogan county wer( among the 49 who enrolled at the beginning of the winter quarter of the Cheney Normal School last Mon- day. They were: Violet E. War- ren. Oroville; Edith Short, azama; Mrs. Daisy M. Pendall, Sam,'and Elva Neander, Oroville. ANOTHER PROSPECT-LOOKS GOOD The saying that "Hope springs eter- nal in the human breast" is ve.T true regarling the irrigation of Brewster Flats. The people have been dlsp- pointc-l so often that one wonders how the5 r can come back and take up still another proposition different from any other that has ever been pre. sented, but we all want water and the cost cuts no ice, we want water at any price and nmst have it, but natur- ally we want it wlt.hh reason. The latest proposition is to darn, the Methow river a short distance above Pateros thereby doing away with a long expensive flume. The power that could be developed would be some thing wonderful and at the same time give us plenty of irrigation water. Mr. Hill an engineer of Seattle met with the people at Pateros last week and went fully into the details of the propohod system, with his estimate of cost, which amounts to something less titan $80 per acre. We are to have a mass meettug in the Oddfellow's hall here In Brewster0 Sat. Dec. 17tl. at which Mr. Hill the Seattle engineer will again meet with the people and explain more fully his schem which he claims will be en- tirely feasible and ve,'y reasonable. STATE FILES ON NEW LAND8 Land Commissioner C. V. Savidge has formafly filed on the 8,410.23 acres of forest reserve lands In the Riverside area of the Colvllle reserve and 20,302 .92 acres of the East Slope area of the Columbia reserve in Klickitat county which were opened for the State'sse- lection a short time ao by President Warran G. Harding's proclanmtion. There is a dispute botweou the for- estry and indian bureaus over the bounderles of the Ahtantin area of the Rainier National Reserve in Yakima county which the state expects to re- ceive later. There are 39,455.76 acres Involved. Wlile the state has" completed Its check of losses of timber in the big storm that raged last wlter on the Olympic pennlnsular the figures have not been approved by the forestry department, thus holding up 42,240 acres in the Iloh area ,and 60,057.69 acres in the Clealvater area, beth in western Jefferson Cottty in the Olym. pie reserve. Eo far as is known there now is no obstacle in the away of a Presidential Proclam4at;ion making avltblo the followtug selections by the state: Sultan Bastu area, Snoqualmie reserve Snohomish county, 62,880 acres; French creek area, 8, 6.86.30 acres In in the Okmmga.n reserve northeast of Methow. Oka,mgan county: Loup Loup area, 40,056 acres in Okanogan reserve west of the City of Okanogan 15,160 acres in the Sinlahekin area of the Okanogan reserve, west of Loom is, PaLmer Lake and Nighthawk. Some of this land, especially that in Olmnogan county, is valuable for gnazing ourposes, therefore the State is dnxlous to get trio seer to permit next ear's grazing regulations to be d,'aftod. The Sultan Basin tract will be available for the State University's forestry school and the co,mRon school fund will be recompensed by an ex- clmne of University lands located elsewhere on the west side, With the distribution of Christmas seals to the 250,000 enthusiastic schol , chlhlren of the state, the seals, and theh" story l romises to be earred to every nook hefore Dee 2 t -the closing ,rote of the sale. Recorders of seals and supplies are being rushed to almost every locality and the,.e is an unusual demand fur health bonds, which are being eagerly sought by the children as an award for the aggregate sales of a room or an entire school. Localities delayed by bad weather conditions have taken a flying start to make Ul) for lost time, and to sat- isfy the demand of the puttlic for seals for their Christmas packages. Booths are being mahtained In all leading places of business while remote dis-. trlcts and rural schools are being rea- ched by mall. Managers In the various counties are advancing tanY novel ideas for the sale of seals. Womens Clubs are assisting as are the Legion and other organizations; ministers are co-opera- ting by special services or by a.ppoint- tug committees to assist in solleitlng. while in one locality the ladies of the. churches serve a hot lunch to all work- era la tlm field. Several localities made a whirlwind! nvass lasting from one day to u week according to tle ground to be covered, while others are using the methods successfully of other years. Generally speaktug, the sale ts now In the hands ot the children and the final success will largely depend upon their energy and enthusiasm, backed by the generosiW of the public, and a- ppreciation of the work being done. Plan to have a part i:: tlle sate and boost your local league, your state, and you,' nation. Five cents from each man woman and child in the state will place Washing- ton at the head of states selling seals and insure a splendid campaign for the coming year.

Dibble of tim De- partment of Licenses last week be- gan mailtug the new automobile 11- cense plates for 1922. Henceforth he plans to send out plates without delay. / Because many ef tile amlttors failed to expldlte requests of automobile ow. ners or their Old numbers or some fa- vored nttmber, the work of sendiug out new plates was delayed a few days The fh'st Six dtys collections of motor vehicle fees almost reached $80,000. After Jan. 1 only the 1922 license will be recognized by peace officers. A controversy in tbe license depart- sent over the number of licenses is- su.ed (luring 1921 to persons of the .same name was settled this week by account showing 2014 Smiths and 1500 Andersons. R. Frama.klln Hart, who 'is in charge of aut licenses, had backed the Andersons to win. SEAL SALE BEING RUSHED ALL CONFERENCES ARE NOT IN W'SF[INGTON
