CANDIDATES FOR QUEEN Last week, the Sun's photo- graphic scoop of five unsponsor- ed princesses who strive to be Queen of White Salmon's Rodeo rated the front page. As far as we're concerned, they're still news and rae top billing. For two reasons we've scatter- ed their pictures through thds issue: {1) we want all our pages to smile at you, and (2) it ought o be fun to hunt for such pretty girls and their pres- em ratings. Relax when you read the Sun. There's too much news for one sitting. 30 U N 30 SULPHUR MINE TOP OF ADAMS "Ten million dollars worth of sulphur on top of Mount Adams isn't worth mining if operations to get it will deface the peak," Wade Dean, president of the Orgeon Washington Telephone company told Rotarians Last Tuesday. With the calm assurance of the Mountain itself, Mr. Dean describ. ed how the deposits were discover. ed, explored, and can be mined. $1200 worth of work each year holds the company's mining claim. This money is spent to develop a road to the peak. Sky Hotel Mount Adams strongest booster sid it was not fantastic to believe that someday there will be a great hotel somewhere near Gotchen He described Ollie Hensley who spent 68 days on top of the peak as the highest paid cook in Ameri- c.a." And while he was playing with the possibDties of the blunt top of the mountain, he expressed admir- ation for the flyer who landed and took off from Rainler last spring. The same feat would have been easier from Mount Adams. The Sun Js not through with Mr. Dean's story. Sometime soon, with his permission, we'll publish a full account of his yellow treasure bur- ied under 308 feet of solid ice. JITNEY DINNER AT TROUT LAKE Stimulated by mountain air and wilt-proof enthusiams, Trout Lake is straining at the leash to get its community program going. Old patrons of the valley's famous "Jitney Dinners" will not miss one of these too rare affairs which will be served at the Trout Lake high school from 6 - 8 p.m., Tuesday, July 31. At 8:30, Dr. R. W. Poston, U. of W. community . progress authority, will spearhead an organizational meeting. [" -- 30 SUN 30 -- TROUT LAKE MAN MAKES PARK TABLE Long hours prevented Albert El- mer, Trout Lake, from trY.trig part in workdays at the County Park. His 0onscience didn'.t bother him, but the lack of tables did. Sunday night, the Elmers picnick- ed at the park. With them ,they brought a 10 foot table with benches, made according o .the best Forest Service specifications. The framirig appears to be 4 x 4 fir, but the tops and attached ben. ches are made of trea,ted 2 inch ced. ar. The whole thing is bolted togeth. er for durability, with just a touch of red paint on the board ends for decoration and weather proteotion. The table is a gift to the park, and Mr. Elmer intends to make an. other one. Harold Hollenbeck, also of Trout Lake, has offered whatever lumber ,is necessary to build the re. maining tables required. SO SEN 0 ---- The Sun Office can supply you with your salesbook needs, dupli. cate and triplicate styles tf COW CLOWN'S ANTICS SERVE PURPOSE Bill Markley, Christensen Brother's famous cow clown, doesn't clown strictly for fun. His humor, as the above picture shows, serves a real purpose Excitement mounts steadily as eighty cowboys converge on White Salmon for ths year"s West Klickit- at Horsemen's rodeo, Saturday and Sunday, August 4 and 5. The big show, which has grown in size and importance far beyond original dreams, will attract top stars of the rodeo world. Gene Pruitt, Buster Ivory, Stub Bartlemay, Eddie Akeridge, De- Moss Bergevan; these names are but a sample. Blll Markley, Chris- tensen Brother's famous cow clown, will be on hand to antagonize the bulls with his outsize pants. Pretty Nancy Kelly with the black, black hair promises to make gentlemen .forget they prefer blonds. Wild Stock Since Christensen Brothers bought out Harry Rowell's bucking string, they have sent more cowboys sprawling than "Pive Minutes to Midnight". Demand for their set. vices are so great that they can service three shows at the same time. San Francisco's Cow Palace, the end of .the western rodeo circuit, will draw their stock from the same corrals as White Salmon. Calf Scramble On Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m., Frank Wink of The Dalles. will auc- tion off last year's calf.scramble yearlings. These .animals, which bring top prices to the 4H and F.F.A. boys who won them, underwrite the Horsemen's serious purpose behind the Rodeo: to recognize the West's most picturesque industry, beef eat- tlq. Ten calves donated for the part by local business men wl caught and haltered by qualified 4H and F,F.A. boys, Under the jur. isdiction of County Agent Huek. feldt and assisted by C. I. Bangert, boys who raise them. Kng= Caurt Last Saturday night's Kangaroo Court disappointed persons expect- ing some fun. Judge P. A. Pederson evidently got wind of counter mess- evidently ot wind of counter meas- ures, and took flightwhen he rots- .took the significance of a sizeable purchase of rope intended to string u,p the street banners. A small minority of business men flaunted the western-garb edict. Stern western justice awaits them. The majority of properly dressed .bus iness men may have felt a bit silly as they came to work, but by the end of the day were secretly admit- ing each other. Rodo Dma,m Rodeo dances are scheduled for three nights: tomorrow, July 28, and Fiday and Saturday nights, Aug- ust 3 and 4. Friday ght is the Q{een's Dance, The name of the winning princess will be announc- ed, and the Rodeo will crown its rul- er. 30 SUN .T MT. HOOD CLIMB SET FOR SUNDAY Rechecking a story from the Hood River News proved a wise precau- tion Thursday morning. According to the Neys, Dick Mansfield and his Mount Adams Climbers, were invit- ed to serve as guides on the Legion Climb scheduled for Sunday, July 29. In the first place, there is no such orgartization as "The Mount Adams Climbers" an although Dick was asked to assist, he'll be busy work. ing on the Jewett Creek park project. However, Myron Weygandt, White Salmon's friendly Coke distributor, has a responsible part in the two assaults that will be made on the summit, one from the north side and one from the south. Weygandt has the reputation of knowing the moun- tain better than any other man. Show and Food Two hours of entertainment is planned for spectators Sunday af- ternoon -- after church services. Ex. tra facilities are being provided for the overnight audience. A camp kit- chen will serve public meals three times a day. Special lunches for climbers will be prepared, awd snacks available to others.
