OKANOGAN NEEDS NEW BRIDGE The city of Okanogan is making efforts to build a new bridge across the Okanogan river. The old wooden struc- ture, built .in 1919, has served its usefulness. The move for a new bridge was started by the Commercial Club. It is true that a new bridge is needed. The bridge that spans the Okanogan river at that point serves some large industries and is the connecting span between the city and the Great Northern yards. This is a needed improvement and it should receive the suppoi't of the entire county. BETTER GET THOSE NEW PLATES It seems that there will be a last minute rush for 1933 auto licenses. So far, few have been issued. With only a- bout fifteen days of grace left, it behooves everyone to start thinking about new licenses plates on the car so that your travels won't be stopped by the long arm of the law. SCHAAF IS WELL QUALIFIED There is a good deal of political talk going the rounds that Ferd Schaaf, prosecuting attorney of Okanogan county, may have the position of assistant attorney gen- eral tendered him. Mr. Schaaf is a staunch Democrat, a most capable at- torney and a man of high standing. Since coming to this county from Spokane Mr. Schaaf has made many friends who believe he is the man for assistant attorney general. Clarence D. Martin, Governor-elect of this state, will dance at least once to the music of the Lieutenant-Gov- ernor. The Vic Meyers dance orchestra fill furnish the music at the inaugural festivities. It is hoped that Mr. Grammar, who was appointed to fill out the term of Wesley L. Jones as Senator, will not start any log-rolling in Washington. Mr. Grammer is a big lumberman and was appointed by Governor Hartley to carry on the work until Homer T. Bone is seated. Governor Roosevelt has been reported in some dis -i patches as declaring that the war debt problem is not his baby. Maybe not, but he is apt to have to adopt it within a few months. The Republicans claim they found it on their doorstep while the Democrats say that "it jest ain't our baby." -- I I i I i I LITTLE THINGS COUNT You car will give more satisfactory performance if you have the following check-ups made: / Adjust brakes, reline if neceary.

BREWSTER HERALD, BREWSTER, WAH.INGTON PETER McPHERSON The community was shocked to heal' that Peter McPherson, one of the town's oldest citizens and a - prominent lawyer of Okanogan coun- ty, had suddenly died Monday even-i ing. ,Mr. McPherson seemed in his usual health Monday and appeared at court in Okanogan to try a case in the forenoon.
