Box 598, Shelter Charles Wcirauch PHONE 657 I I Committees Named By New President Of Canal Sportsmen During the October 23 meeting of the Hood Canal Sportsman Club held in the Hoodsport School tle president, Merritt Stark, made committee appointments for the coming year. Chairmen for the various com- mittees were as follows: Educa- tional and entertainment chair- man, George Adams; salt water fish, Archie Callahan; fresh water fish, Orville Norman; game and animals, Dewey Webster; game birds, Frank Nosworthy; public- ity, Bill Dickie; membership, WaN lie Oliver; pretators, Glover Gray. Interesting fact brought out by President Stark during the meet- ing was that in Utah the law reads to the effect that if a man closes hLs own property to hunt- ers, the state will close fishing to that man on his own land. He told of a unique idea in another locality which was due to trouble the law had with hunters shooting at roadside signs for stops and curves. The officers placed tar- gets beside every sign. What next ? Sportsmen voted to move their November meeting ahead one week and will hold it on Novem- ber 20, at the Lower Skokomish Grange Hall. George Adams will be host at another salmon barbe- cue as he did last year. It is planned to have a short business meeting at seven p.m. followed by dinner at eight. Following the business session R. W. Weaver of Shelton, showed colored slides of Bombay, Teheran, and Iran, which he took personally while in those countries with the armed services. His rapid fire, humorous conversation carried on as the pictures were shown was intensely interesting and left ev- eryone wishing they could hear more. He told of the unique railroad built by the sha of Persia as a personal whim in 1928 which be- came extremely important after war came along. 400,000 vehicles, he said, were hauled across the desert and shipped on this rail- road which was filled with S curves some of-which actually made a figure eight. They wound around precipitous mountains and numerous tunnels. In one place tunnels were numbered 130 in about so many miles. This rail- road was all built by hand. Iran climate which he described as nice in winter, reached unbear- able heat in summer. In the des- ert, where U.S. soldiers were sta- tioned, the temperature reached 128 degrees in the shade, in April. After this highly entertaining presentation, cake, coffee, and ice cream were served by lrs. 5ear Bearden, Archie Cllahan, Mrs. Frances Radtke anff Mrs. Myrtle Johnson.

First, we took some iodine and water and put them in a glass. It stay- ed brown Then, we took the io- dine and water and added starch. It turned purplish black. In our next experiment, we proved that potatoes have more starch than oranges. First we took some iodine and put it on a potato. It turned purple. Next, we put some iodine on an orange. The orange kept its own color. Our next and last experiment we put some celery in a glass of cake coloring. The small tubes in the leaves of the celery took up the cake coloring, and it turned them red.

By Lyndy Olstead Prlday morning the student body had a lbep assembly for the game with Olympia that after- noon. The assembly opened with the flag salute led by Jim Mil- ler. Jerry Carlson and CoCo toy- ell introduced a new yell which the students enjoyed very much. This was followed by a pep talk given by Mr. Bezzo telling the advantages a boy can receive from Pmlaying football. After a few 6re yells and songs led by the four song queens, the students were dismissed. by Dorothy Fisher The Latin class is learning de- clensions and conjugations of verbs. They are on the fourteenth lesson and have about fifty more to go by the end of the school year. The students think the vo- cabulary tests are easier than the other work. There are about 33 students in the class, 22 from the junior high and 11 from the se- nior high. The students feel that the subject is hard, but that they are getting it. by Mac Grlggs In the high school auditorium last Sunday, a group of girls from the JuniOr high glee club sang for a program for Junior Music Week. They sang three numbers directed by Mrs. Charles Chase. They were "Shine On Harvest Moon,!' "Slumber Boat," and "Swing Low Sweet Chariot."

Springgate Named District Manager Of Mayflower Firm Richard C. Springgate has just been appointed district manager for the Sheiton district of the May- flcwer Illter-lllSllrlLnco r/xchall,L( -', a Washington company spe(:ializ- ing in automobile and truck insur- ance. Heaquarters office of tim company is in Seattle. "The Mayflower Company has recently brought out a new type of policy that in attracting national attention," Springgate stated. It is called a temperance policy and provides insurance at lower cost to non-drinkers on the basis that they are less likely to have acci- dents than peopIe who drink. The company holds that it is not fair for the man or wonmn who ab- stains from drinking to have to pay the risk rate based on the greater nunlber of accidents to drinkers. Of course, in addition to this special policy, we also write regular insurance. The new offices of the district manager for Mayflower are located at the Shelton airport.
