w PAGE TEN MT. ADAMS SUN FRIDAY MORNING, MAY 13, 1938 Local Postmaster Has Special Air Mail Cachet for Air Mail Week The Cachet, drawn by Harry Percy, Jr., of White Salmon, which is being used on all let- ters leaving the Bingen post of- fices in canceling letters, dur- ing National Air Mail Week, ac- cording to Postmaster Harold W. Lewis, "is a fine thing." A zinc cut, ordered by Mr. ,Lewis, shown on the left, is an exact replica of the one to be used next week in canceling let- ters from this office. People are urged by Postmaster Lewis to send at least one air mail letter next week. Band Festival The White Salmon school band will travel to Goldendale Saturday, where it will be entered in the Mid-Columbia band festival, Twelve schools will be entered in the event, including schools from Ore- son.

Appointment for membership com- mittee in Bingen is Harold Lewis, Harold Cox and Stacey Reeves; Dewey Schimdt, of Trout Lake, gave a report on cougar bounty hunt- ing the past winter. He killed 11 cou- 'jar and kittens this year.' The total numbe of cougars taken in Klickitat and Skamania counties the past winter was "estimated by Schmidt to be 36. R. IC Bailey, of Wfllard killed seven, Roy Ray of Trout Lake, one, and 17 were killed in the Wind river distriet. "Coyotes kill more deer than cou- gal," Schmidt told the group "and they are plentiful around the foot o Mt. Adams." Schmidt thought the bounty on coyotes should be higher, He believes coyotes more difficult to kill than cou- gars, and much more destructive and plentiful. o.

Direct Water To Fishway Previous to the building of the fish ladder it was not known as to how the fish would be attracted to it, but since the construction of the dam a huge pipe, carrying as much water as the WiLlamette river, an estimation, was diverted to the foot of the fish- way to attract the fish to it, up and over. Count Fish, Too It is easy to count the fish, accord- ing to information given out by Holmes. "The run this year is somewhat Mow," commented Holmes, It was learned that fishing both above and below the dam is poor this year, and the small amount of fish counted now is due to a slow run, March, about 10 an hour went through the ladder. April first, the Women's Club Portray Origin The  gram, preparvd and prts- eld by Mrs: B. H. DeYoe on May 5 e White Salmon Woman's club, portrayingae Jrigin of Woman's club life in Washington 1OO. years ago, and briefly picturing the progress of the White Salmon organization since its birth in 1900, was instructive and en- tertaining, reminding the audience that Washington was the birthplace of the first woman's club west of the Mississippi, and second in the United States. Appropriate atmosphere for the cleverly arranged pageant was the bit of forest with realistic (and artistic) Indian tepee, the work of Mrs. Bob Overbaugh and Keith McCoy, and the squaw and papoose posed in the fore- ground completed the primitive scene. In the improvised reproduction of the living room of the old Whitman Mission near Walls Walls. with its fireplace, candle molds, and other relics of 1838, local club members impersonated those true pioneers of the great northwest, Mrs. Whitman, Mrs. Spaulding, Mrs. Eels, Mrs. Wal- ker, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Gray, show- ing that these educated women, who had come thousands of miles from homes of refinement in the east to the wilderness, were most practical and courageous. Mrs. Whitman and Mrs. Splauding had been on the ground fr several years; the other had just arrived, and while engaged in the routine of "clearing away" after a meal, while husbands and children had gone outside to look around and exercise, and Indians peered curiousl! through the windows, these women dis- cussed their travels, mutual friends "back home," and needs in the new location. On the very heels of shock, at hearing of women organizing a dub in Jacksonville, Illinois, conflicting with all religious training about wo- men not appearing in public, up went the heads of this little group, and Mrs. Walker, the young bride, voiced their sentiments, that a woman's club would be deeidely helpful in their ef- forts to improve the manners of the red man and protect those of their children. So that very day was launch- ed "The Columbia Maternal Associa- tion," but not until they had invoked I God's blessing on "so bold a step." I Authentic copies of the Conssti'tu- I tion, by-laws aud minutes of this early organization procured and read by ' Mrs. DeVoe were convincing evidence of its success. The cavalcade of the White Salmon club was a series of pictures or scenes in pantomime, following the reading of a short history, and touching the high spots, starting with the organi- Church Notes CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH There will be no services at the Congregation church in White Sahnon this week.

If the day is fair, put your lunch in your car and go on a picnic with us after the service, and enjoy an outdoor , service in the afternoon. Arthur J. Collins, leader ,O CHRISTIAN SCIENCE CHURCH "Mortals and Immortals" is the subject of the Lesson-Sermon which ill be read in all Churches of Christ, I qcentist, Sunday, May 15. Gohten Text: "As in the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly" (I Cor. 15:48). Among the citations which comprise the Lesson-Sermon is the following from the Bible: "And it came to pass. when he was in a certain city, behold a man full of leprosy: who seeing Jes- us fell on his face, and besought him, saying, Lord. if thou wilt. thou eanst make me clean. And he put forth his hand and touched him, saying, I will: be tlou clean. And immediately the " " k 5 leprosy..departed from ham (Lu e : 12, 13).  The Lesson-Sermon also includes the following passage from the Christ- ian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy: "As mortals reach, through knowledge, of Christ- ian Science, a higher sense, they will seek to learn, not from matter, but from the divine Principle, God, how to demonstrate the Christ, Truth, as the healing and saving power" (p. 285:27).

JUST A RUMOR Rumor has it that the new Bingen school building will not be paid for this year. Today that rumor was spiked in its infancy, for at the end of this year, under the present 25-1hill tax, Binen's indebtedness for the school will be cleared. ' "The payment in one year for the new school, is the reason for such high taxes this year,' stated Ed Suks- doff. Wednesday. A special election in July will be held to purchase new furniture for the building. This will call for an extra millage. School Completed The school is finished.

Twenty years ago, on May 15, 1918, crowds gathered in Potomac Park, Washington, to witness the departure of the first air mail flight in this country. This flight was over a route 436 miles long, to New York and re- ,turn. Today, just twen!y years later, tb.e air mail service has expanded to the almost unbelievable total flying !mileage of upwards of a quarter mil- lion miles daily. Six airplanes now fly over Lyle daily, operated by the United Air Lines between Portland and Eastern destinations, handling air mail. Com- mencing May 15, Northwestern air lira's will add a Portlan:t tc Yakima fl;ht of two ships a day, also hand- hr.u air mail. Both ,ff these large lines use the latest and most modern equip- ment available in the expeditious transportation of mail, passengers n,l treight. All citizens are uryed by Mrs. Des- sic Irewitt, postma,;ter at Lyle, to help make Lyle on hundred per cent. in observance of this week. This can be accomplished by everyone who uses the Lyle post office sending at least one air mail letter during the celebration week. Ech Mr mail letter sent from  yle durin this period will bear a special cache of commemora- tion.

Recent drawings show much skill by local artists on this work. First in offering a drawing, not to scale, was that of Harry Percy, Jr., of White Salmon. Guy Wade is also planning a draw- ing, as is a committee under Stacey Reeves, of Bingen. The best selected arch way will probably be drawn to scale with ultimate intention of erec- tion across the street between the Evergreen hotel and the Texaco Ser- vice station in Bingen. -o- QUICK WORK A robin built a nest and laid four eggs in one month. Such was the report by Hall Ctmm- hers, meter reader for the Pagtfic Power and Light company. Mr. Chambers, who makes monthly readings, found a new robbins nest and four eggs hovered over the meter of the Ernie Boyer home located on the old Jewett Farm property this hveek. The nest wasn't there when he read the meter last month. eau of air commerce airways commun- ication station at Dallesport, have pledged their aid in putting Lyle over one hundred per cent. An essay, "Wings Over America," fnts been prepared by the Lyle high school and has been forwarded to headquarters at Seattle in connection with the celebration of "National Air Mail Week."
