In order to get the necessary birds needed the government has started “The Congress of Ameri— can Pigeon Fanciers.” Perhaps ' the most important feature of this iorganization is to sell complete lofts for a lower price than they could be purchased if all the material would be bought Sep— arately. This organization plans to have 100,000 new fanciers with- in one year. Another feature is to give the fanciers access to in— formation so that our birds will be of the same quality and racing ability as those of the Army. This gives the government the right to buy any bird it feels will be necessary to defense. It also will register the pedi- grees of the birds that their ancestry can be proven. This will add much more value to the bird because there is no chance of “faking” the pedigrees. The sec- retary of .the Shelton club was sent the above information and was asked to have it published. if possible, in order to create a few of those 100,000 new fanciers.

September 23. Although this is a year when improvements are least expected, Pontiac engineers and production' men have restyled the appearance and added several worthwhile me-l chanical improvements to produce, a line of cars for 1942 that are' worthy successors to the greatest, year in Pontiac history. Styling which Pontiac introduc-l ed two years ago with great suc-' cess is continued in a fleet of two. basic lines of models~the Torpe—, do with seven body models on the 119 inch wheelbase chassis and the j Streamliner, with two bodies on! the 122 inch wheelbase chassis. Also there are two Streamliner— Chieftain n’iodels with several add- ed style features. l In the matter of material sub- stitutions Pontiac has been parti- cularly fortunate where substitu- tions count most in performance. This is notably true with the elec- , tro—plated iron alloy pistons which ' obviously will be continued after_ sixteen years of continuous use in all Pontiac engines. I For the eighth year the "Silver? Streak" continues as the most striking Pontiac indentification. ! There is a more generous use of plastics for decorative and orna- mental purposes, while a new andl attractive copper finish appears on the instrument panel, radio grillel and clock replacing the chromium. plate of former years. Without change in wheelbases,l styling experts have increased the i all around impression of greater siZe by only slightly increasingi the overall length and re-balanc-i ing the front end design appear—g ance-wxse. From the front the greater mass effect is produced by making the front bumpers four inches wider; spacing the headlamps ten inchesl farther apart; by redesigning thel radiator grille and making it ninei inches wider; by longer, horizontal ; parking lights, and by broadeningr the nose of the hood two inches on 1 the Torpedo and three inches on, the Streamliner. ! Lengthwise, the styling is accen- l tuated by making the front fend-l ers 50 per cent longer, sweeping them back midway into the doors. Added to this is the horizontal, triple-ribbed front fender reinforc- ing heads, twice as long as last year, continuing across the rear lfenders both fore and aft of the wheel openings. Although actual overall length is increased only three inches, this artistic arrangement of masses and lines cleverly multiplies the increase. A rich brown mahOgany swirl finishes the surface of instrument boards,. garnish mouldings and door panels. .Burma-copper with chrome trim is the finish used on the radio grille at the center of the instrument board, the dials on the new instrument panel at the left and the electric clock at the right.‘ Below the radio grille is a central ash tray with plastic han- dle. Plastic numerals illuminated with “edge lighting” at night ad- orn instruments and clock.

UNTY J OURNAL‘ id —__—_ Lawn Renovation It is discouraging to a home owner to find that his or her' lawn is gradually looking worse and that some drastic renovationl must be done. Sometimes, if the condition becomes very bad, the whole area must be spaded up and a new lawn constructed from the; bottom up. Most often this eX-l treme treatment can be averted,l even though the soil beneath the original grass was not prepared correctly at the beginning. Of course all of us have seen lovely greens on any number of golf courses. We have all wished at one time or another that our lawns could look like them. And, logically, we can greatly improve grass areas by putting into prac- tice some of the things that have become routine to the greenkeep— er. He fertilizcs and waters reg- ularlyeeand we can do that; he top-dre s the greens and 'spikes’ them too—and these things we can do even though they are a bit more difficult than the first two. You should try to visualize your lawn as something that is not static. It changes and the golf' green changesseven over short periods of time. The change may be for the better or for the worse depending upon what you do to the grass. Take the mat- ter of ‘spiking’ as mentioned ab- ove. What does it do to help the lawn? It does several things; first it helps aerate the soil, and the grass roots and soil bacteria need oxygen; second, it permits water and dissolved fertilizer elements to sink down more readily; and third; it permits the roots to pen- etrate easier to the lower areas where they can resist drought bet- ter. Although you may not have access to the special type of ‘spiker’ that the greenskeeper us- es you can accomplish the same thing by hand. There are special garden tools available for that very purpose. Or, if you find them unavailable, you can employ an ordinary garden-digging fork or even a spade. By piercing through the existing sod and forc- ' ing the tines or the blade downl six or eight inches, and then by, prying back easily on the handleI you will loosen the lower soils, without disrupting the growing, grass too much. If this operation> leaves the Surface too bumpy and; irregular, I like to level it byg pressing lightly with the head off a rake—not by patting it down' heavily with the spade. At this: point you will do well to add al top dressing of good, light soil to! which fertilizer has been added.’ If it is necessary, new grass seed! can now be sown on the thin or bare areas before watering is; done. These practices of hand-spiking, top—dressing, fertilizing, reseeding,l and watering, if they are followed, consistently each season, will help create the deep, soft, heavy mat of . grass that we all want aroundl ANTICIPATING A FLOOD Applications for, permits to dual ash trays in the arm rests of sedan coupes and two door Se- dans. GOVERNOR, FORESTER FAVOR COOPERATIVE TREE NURSERY Olympia, Sept. >24.—~,The new cooperative tree nurSery now un- der construction by the West Coast Lumberme’n’s‘ Ass0ciation and other forest products groups, has the best wishes of Governor Arthur B. Langlie, who made a statement to the press today. “I am glad to see another step being taken by those interested in forestry, toward the reforesta— tion of our cutover lands,” the Governor said. “The cooperative effort in the Nisqually area en- into by the West Coast Lumbermen’s Association and oth- er cooperating groups, is another progress in conservation. “Fir trees grow rapidly when once started, and re-seed them- selves. This new effort, together with other things that can be done in the future, is a salutary effort toward the perpetuation of this great natural resource." T. S. Goodyear, State forester, ufacturers to the Census Bureau. new nursery. “It is a forward locking enterprise,” he said. “The State is prohibited by law from selling nursery stock, or even seed. Commercial-grown s t o C k would be far too expensive fol" anyone to buy, to plant on the thousands of acres of fire-devast- ed land. So, the lumbermen are to grow their own stock and plant it. “The State Division of Forestry heartily approves of this move on the part of private industry. It is another indication that lumber- men are taking a constructiVe. long-time View of forestry.” Work at breaking ground and leveling on the nursery site, on the Nisqually Flats near here, began last Monday morning.

Anyone who did not kill a deer or elk during the 1940 season, w ho holds a 194] big game seal and a hunting license is eligible. ' Game officials point out, how— ever, that persons who bag a deer or elk during the con- trolled—hul'liing seasons w h i c h precede the regular 1941 hunt- ing season will lose their chance to hunt during the regular sea— son. State law provides that a. person may take only one deer or elk in any one year. Incidentally, the doc area in Ma- son County has been eliminated from the 1941 deer hunting sea- son regulations after a. two—year trial. The controlled hunting areas mentioned above are par- tially taking the place of the doe areas of the state as hey did not work out exactly as antici- pated. Rather than thinning out the deer in congested areas as thel game department had hoped it tended more to thin out the hunt- ers and greatly increased the haz—. ards of hunting in those areas. l ONE FOR RIPLEY And speaking of deer, this scribe mot Guy Barnum, Kitsap County game protector, at Hoods- port during last night‘s bomber search and heard him tell one for Bob Ripley’s “Believe—It—Or—Not.” Barnum said he recently had a case where a horse kicked a deer to death. Seems that a. big four-point, ZOO-pound buck has been ranging with a few horses belonging to a‘Kitsap County farmer and had been annoying a. young colt by prod— ding it in the flanks with his antlers. The colt evidently took a lusty boot at the pcstii'erous buck and i I l ‘caught it with a lucky blow at the base of one of its horns. neat- ly splitting the book’s skull from nose to neck, Barnum said. WHAT’S IN A NUMBER? When Coach Jimmy Phelan’s rambling Huskies pour out onto the Stadium field to face the crack Minnesota Gophers Sept— ember 27, All-American center Rudy Mucha’s big number 70 will be gracing the jersey of another big center who may someday rise to the top himself Chuck Horjes, 205 pounds of sophomore. Number one, made famous by Chuck Carroll, All-American half—i back in 1928, will be worn by Phelan’s sensational triple-threati halfback, Bob Erickson. The can—. ny Irish mentor’s latest experi-l ment has been to switch left half- back Erickson to the right side as a running mate instead of al- ternate for veteran Ernie Steele. Big Bob Barrett, up—and—coming sophomore from Seattle’s Queen Anne High School, will be sport- ing number 60 up and down the greensward.
