PAGE 8 Indians Had Ily Virginia Allison LILLIIVAUP -- Our men pre- pare for the salmon fishing season in obvious ways: hy checking the boat and its motor; by replenish- ink gear and equipment: and by trying" l() guess correctly what wL- cation dates will coincide with 111(: Silvor run. The Twanas prepared for the e,ming" of lhe Salmon also. But they did it differently. For two weeks prior to the expected run il. was their custom to keep the &apos;ivers entering Hood Canal pure and clean. No one might bathe, play in, emply a canoe, wade through or otherwise defile the water of our creeks and rivers, i'll honor of the Approaching horde. TIHs was a rigidly enforced trib- al custom. iVien the first unlucky salmon appeared at the month of a river the watchful Twanas speared it, barbecued il on the beach, strip- fed it of meat and placed the st+elton of the fi2 on the ground, Pharmacy Phacts From Neil Evander I've talked about vitamins A, t and C before and thought I'd take today to explain about vita- mins D and E. Vitamin D is nec- essary in our bodies for nor- real growth of b o n e structure. It is also very important in the absorption of phosphorous and calcium, as well as helping with the hardening or mineralization ef both teeth and bones, Vitamin E. on the other hand, is believed to be necessary for enzymes in our bodies, and it has been established as necessary for normal reproduction in many animals. Vitamins make up a fas- cinating subject  one on which we're always glad to answer your questions, so please don't ever hes- itate to ask us, We enjoy being or service.

He made an axis out of a six inch fir, thirty-six inches long with a piece of veneer and a pin at either end. to revolve above a framework of convenient height mounted on casters. By making and winding first upon the drum that part which will be the outside edge of the rug, the center of the rug is wound last. topside upon the whole, in the right order for sewing the braid together with linen thread. It is a neat trick and a clever one all braided rug makers could use to advantage. Mr. and Mrs. Martin Olsen of Columbia, Mont.. have spent sev- eral days wRh the Sis Andersons.

Sr., who purchased the Graham residence between Holiday Beach and Varfie];ds were aston- ished and delighted when Jim, skin diving in front of their place at the 65 foot level, discovered an anchor on the floor of the Canal. It required eight days to bring it up onto the beach by means of a cedar log float. It measures six feet high by four feet by four feet from fluke to fluke, and weighs an estimated 700 pounds. Rust now covers or has obliterated any markings that might be upon it. But Mr. Morrison. employed by the Oregonian. believes it to be made with Swedish steel since it has rusted in striations, and will seek further confirmation of his opinion that it was cast in the mid-}t00'sm'd lost by some early ship exploring What Was :tl. en known as Hood's Chamlel. Jim's treasure will go back to Portland with the family for authoratative identification, if that is possible.

Exlension Of Jones Act Amendment Urged Oregon and Washington could ship 40-million board feet of lum- ber anmmlly to Puerto Rico if the current amendment to the Jones Act were extended by Congress, the Western Forest Industries As- sociation predicted today. The shipments would mean "new markets, new production and more payrolls in lumber and port com- munities," according to Joseph W. McCracken, executive vice presi- dent of the W.F.I.A. The Jones Act requires inter- coastal shipments to use Ameri- can cargo vesselS. The current one-year amend- ment permits U.S. cargo lumber shippers to use modern, lower-cost foreign vessels to Puerto Rico and thus temporarily compete on even terms with the British Columbia lumber industry in at least one, small U.S. market. The amendment expires Oct. 23. 1963. "It should be extended," Mc- Cracken declared, To date, 6.5-million board feet have been shipped from Oregon and Washington to the Caribbean island this year. However. Mc- Cracken pointed out that the first shipments using foreign vessels did not get underway until spring, because of lengthy qualification procedures. Furthermore. no ship- ment can be loaded after Oct. 23 which means sales opportunities a all but dead now. "With a full year of sales ef- fort, we would be truly competi- tive and many new jobs would be created in 1964/' he said. Last year, lritish Columbia shipped some 73-million board feet of lumber to Puerto Rico. "It should be an 80-million-foot mar- ket," McCracken estimated. "Giv- en equal shipping ztes, Oregon and Washington lumber mills could gain at least one-half of the market." 0f By Fr:uwes im[nm, I<AMILCHIq Prcl)nrations are being made for another school term.
