UNIVERSITY PROF , TELLS PLACEOF CHEMISTRY TODAY Kiwanlans Hear Review Of Prog- ress In Human Sustenance Due To Experiments Dr. H. K. Benson, who has been head of the department of Chem- istry of the University of Wash- ington for many years, and of late also interested in the chem- istry of wine-making on Stretch Island, gave the Kiwanis Club an interesting review Tuesday of the part that chemistry has and is playing in the support of human- ity in the line of substitutes for the old staple food products from the soil, and particularly now in research to make the United States independent of the world. At the turn of the century, he stated, a professor listed and cereals for foods, the growth of population and the likelihood that in forty years, which would be 1941, there would no longer be sufficient cereal foods to feed the world at the then rate of pro- duction per acre. Scientists turn- ed their attention to the question of growth stimulants and soil building supplies, of which nitrates from Chile was the most import- ant, but with other important minmi elements from outside this: country, most of which are not now available to the farmer, he continued. However. constant scientific re- search has been carried on until now nearly all the three most needed soil builders are produced. by more or less synthetic process- es, nitrate from the air, potash and phosphate from phosphorous rock found in this country, which insures a continued surplus of wheat and cereal products for food, and also through the ad— vance of chemurgy, the base for thousands of new products and most human needs, all now in mark'et or ready to bring out of pigeon holes in case of national emergency. the University pro- fessor told the Kiwanians. He exhibited several articles made by new processes out of now waste materials. such as paper frgm straw, plastics from casein. soy beans and many substitutes for items of daily use proving equally as good as those from old sources. Turning to wood, Prof. Benson pointed out the many items now made from pulp besides paper and rayon, even to sugar and the turning of waste liquors in plastics, and stated that the era of finding new uses for what has been waste and neg- lected by-products of manufacture. has only begun 'with an unlimit- ed future for old and new indus- tries to employ the people, pro- viding reSearch and encourage- ment for industry is continued in this country to take up the slack when the war spasm is over. At least Americans need not worry about the future so far as sub- sistence is concerned if they do not waste their substance and heritage, Dr. Benson concluded. James Kelly Dies Tuesday Evening James Kelly, 63, of Route 1. Shelton, succumbed to a long 111‘ ness at Shelton Hospital Tuesday night.

Wolcott, Bogachus and Conrad returned from the scene by differ- ent routes yesterday in an effort to determine the easiest way for the Army recovery party to reach and return the bodies to the base camp at Tunnel Creek shelter. Return Today Or Friday The recovery party was not ex- pected to be able to return to the base camp before this evening, possibly not until sometime to- morrow. The bodies Were being brought out by a mule pack train which reached a point some seven miles from where the wreckage was discovered Monday by a searching plane from McChord Field.

F uli Fourteen new fish, two of rwhich replace previous entries, graced the second annual Shelton silver salmon derby qualifying board today as entrants in the derby found good pickings in Shelton bay the past couple of days, the mouth of Mill Creek being a particularly productive spot. The net result of the latest fish to be posted leaves the quali- fying board one beyond being half filled, or having 31 of its 60 rungs filled. Ernie Cole, first entrant to post a fish in this year’s derby, raised his original entry yesterday with a silver scaling ten pounds even, :dressed according to derby regu- lations, while Carl Rains was the second to up his original entry weight, with a 12-lb., 3-ounce sil- ver yesterday. New entries posted since the last accounting in Tuesday's Jour- nal include Leonard Christensen, T. V. Dunning, Louise Huff of Springwater Camp on Hood Can- al, E. C. Williams, Bob Bednarski, 'Min and Hank Durand, Len Wal- ton, Clarence Weston and Virgil Morgan, Marian and Chet Hillman. However, none have yet dis- placed George Forbes at the top of the list, whose 161/2-pounder still leads the race for the $5- cash prize which the derby spon- soring committee has set up for the biggest fish caught in the qualifying round. Qualifying closes October 26 with the sixty biggest fish qualifying for the fi- nals November 2. Chairman Claire Tozier of the sponsoring committee *today an- nounced that fishermen wishing to weigh-in fish evenings or Sun- days may do so by telephoning either Cy Murphy of Driskel Hard- ware at 48 or Jim Roush of Hill- crest at 328-J, as both have agreed to open up their establishments anglers for weighing any time have entries to post.

In support of his contention that “another chance" is frequent- ly the humane way to deal with an individual who may have trans- gressed against the law, he point- ed out that records ‘show that 97 per cent of the persons given deferred sentences do not return to criminal ways against 70 per cent under the suspended sentence law. Deferred Sentence Praised The prosecutor said that in his opinion the deferred sentence law is one of the greatest steps for- ward toward solving the prob- lem of punishment for the “first offender.” Under this law, he explained, a person convicted of a crime can be placedupon pro- Her literary and geographical knowledge, ‘plus a pair of sharp eyes, made Mrs. Laura K. Plumb, Shelton city librarian, the in- strument by which two great American rivers were “returned” to their proper locations recently and resulted in Shelton, Washing- ton, getting its name printed in the dignified columns of the New day edition section labeled ‘Books.’ It all came about'when May Lamberton Becker, author of a column in the Tribune’s "Books" ‘section entitled “The Reader’s Guide," stated in her article of August 10 that the novel “They Came To A'Biver” by Allis Mc- Kay is a story of pioneering on the Ohio and that the book “Hold Autumn In Your Hand” by George Sessmfis Perry is a warmly. hu- man ory of hard times in 'the San Pedro, California, bottom- lands. Mrs. Becker had included these two books in a list of 20 books presenting- American life with its customs, background, ideals and present conditions. Discerned Errors .' .Now a couple of discrepencies like that would go unnoticed PrObably by 999 out of a 1000 Persons. but not Mrs. Plumb. She knew that “They Came To A Rlver” Was a story concerning our own mighty Columbia. River, not the Ohio, and she also knew in Texas, not California, and so she proceeded to notify Mrs. Becker, of her mistake- Mrs. Plumb wrote to Mrs- Becker, “1 have always found your lists and comments. so helP‘ ful that I hesitate to call your attention to an error in your at- ticle . . .

Give Us Credit Due “ . . . ‘They Came To A River” is a story of the apple country along ' the mighty river of the West, the Columbia, once called the Oregon. Too bad that name was not kept. Let’s transplant those apple trees from the Ohio there. “I lived for some years in Texas. I think of it not as my native but one of my foster states. I love it . . . so may I speak a word for Texas,\. too . . . in ‘I—Iold Aut- umn In Your Hand,’ the interest- ing antidote to the bitter vintage of ‘The,Grapes Of Wrath,’ Texas is the background. California steals so much glory. Let’s put the San Pedro River back where it belongs.” Mistake Acknowledged Mrs. Becker acknowledged Mrs. Plumb’s criticism in her article in the August 31 Herald Tribune and also wrote Mrs. Plumb a per- sonal letter in which she said: "You're completely right, thank you. Honestly, it was the queerest slip about the Columbia, the report had to be cut to fit columns exactly and in fitting the remains together that happened somehow. But how the San Pedro slipped out of Texas pass- es me, it must have been just in the rush of the composing room." Anyhow, literary accurateness has been restored to the Colum- bia and San Pedro thanks to the sharp eyes and keen mind of Mrs. Plumb, just a small town librar- ian in the Far West who noted the mistake made by a big city author and had the initiative to see that it was corrected. Incidentally, the Shelton Li- brary numbers both the books concerned with this story‘upon its shelves. and satisfaction of the court that he has straightened himself out, he can return to court and change his plea from guilty to not guilty to The .cl'rsrgu'. on . which he u~ Convicted and have the. chargel dismissed, thus allowing him to return to society without a crim- inal record. The suspended sentence, on the: other hand, is a record foreverl against a convicted person’s name, i hesaid, all of which seems to in— dicate that a criminal record is a definite deterent to a convicted individual’s re-entry into the nor- mal channels of society. Broken Homes Blamed Prosecutor Heuston told his listeners that the biggest prob- lem of his office is with juvenile cases and he laid the blame for the presence of 70 percent of the inmates of the Monroe Reform— atory to broken homes. divorce. “It is a tremendous problem what to do with these young peo- ple who come before us for pun- ishment after breaking the law somehow,” he said. “Basically the great ,majority of them are not bad and it is always a ques- tion whether sending them to re- form institutions will straighten them out or, teach them more ways to break the law and get away with it." The prosecutor, too, has the problem of determining whether a case is worth taking into court -—again the problem of admin- istering practical rather than full legal justice, the county officer said. . Plaintiff Grilled, Too "It has been my policy always to be convinced in my own mind that I had conclusive evidence be‘ fore filing any charge against a person and I have likewise con- ducted a practice of grilling com- plaining witnesses just as hard as defendants to be certain the ac- cusation is substantiated as I feel it would be far worse to send an innocent person to jail than to allow a half dozen guilty per- sons to go free.” ' The records seem to bear out Prosecutor Heuston’s practices, too, for since he came here a year and a half ago to take over the prosecutor’s office only one of sixty superior court cases he has handled have required jury trial (and a conviction was obtained in that way) and less than a half dozen of over 200 justice court cases have required jury trials. ' both superior and justice court cases confessions were obtained, Pros- ecutor Houston said, saving the In the great majority of cbunty heavy expenses. GIRL FOR OLYMPIANS Mr. and Mrs. R. E.

J. E. Martin show, but the reduction is only ten pupils. Figures released today Show an enrollment of 853 pupils in the 23 operating districts outside of Shelton, against 863 pupils in 25 operating districts outside Shelton last year. Cloquallum and Potlatch have discontinued their schools, the former sending its pupils to Shelton this term, the latter to Hoodsport. Part of the reduction is due to Cloquallum coming here, but oth- er losses are shown to offset the big gain at Belfair, which had 236 pupils at the time the enrollment report was made against 168 last year.

ELMA vs SHELTON FRIDAY IN FIRST HOME GRID CLASH Highclimbers Facing Defending Central League Champs; I Hickson, Rhinos, Pigg, Byrno Fol- low In Order; Civil Service Board Recommends Five Man Police Force Following a civil service ex- amination Tuesday evening which resulted in five men receiving passing grades and being placed on the eligible list for city police force positions, the city civil ser- vice board last night recommend— .ed that the city police force be ‘increased to five men instead of its present three to carry out a. recommendation of the Federal Bureau of- Investigation that mu- nicipalities provide one police of- ficer for each 750 population. William F. Compton, retired Army officer, earned No. 1 posi- tion on the eligible list, followed in order by Mason County Deputy Sheriff Fred Hickson, State High- way Department employe Clar- ence Rhines, Shelton School Jan- itor Ralph Pigg, and former Ma- son County Sheriff Gerald E. Byrne, the city civil service board announced this morning after cor- recting the examination papers last night. 70 Passing Grade These five received passing grades of 70 or above out of a possible 110 points for applicants with World War veteran ratings and of 100 points for applicants lacking veteran rating. Compton, Hickson and Pigg all received the extra points allowed for having war veteran ratings. The rating of the applicants was, based upon a written exam- ination consisting of 25 questions which counted for a total of 75 points, and an oral examination which counted for 25 points, of which 121/2 were allocated for ex- perience and 121/2 for personal fittness for police work, Exam- ining Officer Charles T.

Another change in the line is quiam Hakola In making its recommendation for an enlarged city police force, the civil service board pointed out that the new city parking regu- lations, if enforced and to be en- forced, would pay the salary of one additional officer from fines and require another officer to be enforced and that in addition the pinball license law which the city passed specifically to raise funds for employing an extra police of- ficer has in acutality raised suf— ficient money to pay the salaries of two extra policemen. Compton, nigh man on the eligible list as established by Tues- day’s examination, must pass a. physical examination now before further action can be taken on his appointment to the city police force. He has been serving as temporary night patrolman since the first of this month, prior to that served for a month as deputy, in the county sheriff’s office dur- ing vacations this summer, and has had wide experience in police work during 28 years in the U. S. Army. He served as commanding officer for three years of the In- ternational police patrol in Siber- ia after the World War and com- manded military police units dur- ing most of his Army service.
