Travel for this July was more than double that/ of the same per- iod two years ago when Olympic was only a year old and the baby park in the system, and shows an increase of 40 per cent over that for July, 1940. , An outstanding attraction for 1 visitors during July were the pub- ‘lic picnic campgrounds located throughout the Park along the rivers and lakes. All campgrounds received heavy use throughout the . month. Other activities in which visi- tors participated picnicking and camping were fishing in the rivers, lakes and streams, hiking over shaded trails, photographing wild life and mountain scenery and enjoy- l ing the beauty of the wildflowers. Thousands of persons swam in the two hot springs pools. Many visitors rode horseback, while others played» tennis and canoed . on the lakes. “I feel confident," Superinten- dent Macy commented on the July travel record, “that travel to Olympic National Park will con- ,tinuc its steady growth and will come to be as widely known and‘ used as our most popular national parks.” Oother Park Service 01"- ficials and conservation leaders one of America's best known play- grounds.

The Activians saw to that Tuesday night by administering a 13 to 3 thrashing to Mobilgas which hoisted the second half pennant up beside the first halfl title the clubmen already possess.| Les Spilseth again had a shut— out slip through his fingers in the final inning when darkness andi errors contrived to allow three' his superlative flinging. He had a. narrow escape in the first frame, however, retiring the side with the bases full and none away. Harvey Hillman walloped a. home run to spur a four-run sec- the scrap away.

(Special)—‘ Declaring that the compelling .of husbands and wifes to file jomt income tax returns under any and all circumstances would establish a dangerous precedent, that it would revive the old common law fiction that the wife is a chattel of the husband, and that it would nullify the individual property rights of the citizen under the Washington 5 t at e community property law, Congressman Mar- tin F. Smith was among the mem— bers of the House who fought the mandatory provision in the reve- ,nue bill and succeeded in defeat- 'ing it by a decisive majority. l Congressman Smith also voted‘ against the closed rule whereby the tax legislation was not open, to amendment on the floor of the House, pointing out that during his entire nine years in Congress he has always opposed a closed rule, which he considers contrary to the ,spirit of democratic insti—. tutions. A separate vote on' the mandatory joint income returns was the only concession permitted when the closed rule was adopted. COOKIES Assorted -lbs. .......... ..

The trouble is Al hasn’t been able to get his alleys resurfaced this summer, as required an- nually under American Bowling l Congress regulations. So many new, alleys are being installed in the Northwest that the ex— perts are badly overworked and just when they can get around to assigning someone the week it takes to give the Shelton drives a going over no one can tell. Al has had his order in for a resurfacing job for three months and still can’t get action.

(1) In— tentional groundingof a forward pass (both hands over his right shoulder) . . . (2) Unsports- manlike conduct (both arms out straight from the sides of his body with the palms facing down) . . .

In night-blindness a person sees satisfactorily in daylight, but has} great difficulty in seeing in tWi-I light.

I One student who possessed this‘ remarkable night vision‘ w o u l d take magazines and books to bed and when‘the lights were turned’ out in the dormitory so that; others could sleep, he would readi an hour or more in the very dim‘ light entering the window from the street lamp.

Motion Pictures—- Actually Do Not Move, Neighbors. I I Sight is not instantaneous andl it takes the eye a bit of a second to wipe out one picture before it; is ready to receive another, saysl This lingering of pictures in the eye is, known as persistence of Vision. A flash of lightning may last for only about one-hundred-, thousandth of a second, but the impression of the light persists in the eye for at least a tenth of a second, says the Institute. If a bright spark at the end of a' stick is rotated rapidly, the eye‘ sees a complete circle of light. It is because of this persistence of vision that modern motion pictures are possible. Moving pictures really never move while they are thrown on the screen. Consider a picture in which a per- son is walking. Individual pic- tures at the rate of 20 per sec- ond are projected on the screen. In each picture the person is in are projected, one at a time, on the screen. The eye sees the first picture for about only one- twentieth of a second. Then while this picture persists \in the eye for another twentieth of a second, the} screen is darkened by a shut— ter in the projector before the HEXt Picture is shown. The, eyes see about 20 pigtures per second, with a dark interval between each picture. Every picture remains perfectly still on the Screen. The film is mOVed only in the dark intervals when the shutter cuts‘ off the light.

From there they went on the Skagit River trip that the Seat- tle City Light promotes. They pronounce it one of the most beautiful they have seen any- whereeeand we remember that they have traveled over the Uni- ted States a great deal.

Dairymen f‘On the Spot” To Produce More for Defense Under present economic con- ditions dairy farmers are "on the spot.” The government couraging greater production of dairy products to meet needs of shipments to Great Britain and other countries under the lease- lend act. An article published in the Eco- nomic Information for Winconsin Farmers is also applicable to Ma- son, County Farmers. “‘In planning their part in the expansion of dairy production, dairy farmers should keep two things in mind. One is that af- ter the war there may be a con- siderable drop in prices. The ex- tent of this drop in prices is such that farmers should exercise ex- treme care in making any con- siderable expenditure for build- ings, livestock, and equipment un- less the expenditure results in greater efficiency and lower cost of production. Farmers should i.

New figures of the Census Bu- reau on the use of automobiles, trucks and tractors on American farms provide the explanation of earlier Census figures showing a decline of 3,000,000 horses mules in the past decade. On 825,126 farms in 24 states, the Census bureau found, in 1940, automobiles; 925,022 tractors, and 464,226 trucks. These 24 states contain less than half of the 6,096,799 farms in the Uni— ted States. The percentage of these farms- having automobiles was 74.2: the percentage having tractors was,’ 29.7, and the percentage having] trucks was 15.1. The farms of Iowa, Nebraska, Minnesota, and‘ South Dakota showed automobile ownership in excess of the hum—3 In Iowa, 90.2 cent of all farms had automo-‘ biles and over 21,000 Iowa farms had more than one car.
