POLICE COURTESY Last Saturday night four Parkdale persons had the misfortune to encounter a White Salmon police officer, A. R. Brown, on a parMng charge. By oversight, the Oregonians failed to see the "Police Cars Only" sign in front of the public library and parked their car. Before leaving the vehicle they deb{tted the situation, but de. cided the yellow curbing was a loading zone and was not restricted after 6 P.M. As for the fire hydrant on the corner, they took care to park wel beyond the 12 feet distance required. When they relurned, Officer Brown was in a high dudgeon, and had summoned a wrecker from Hunsaker's Garage to haul their car away. The driver of the re;is-parked car was at first in a reasonable frame of mind, but Mr. Brown's belligerent shouting and even profanity antagonized his victims until the Owner of the ear, Mr. Woody, was persuaded that he was facing a '+shake down" instead of a parking ticket. By this time a cro\\;vd htd athered, and Officer Brown, excited by the situat,on he hlt(] created, called for reinforcements. State and County offJ,:ers arri,'ed, and aflei sizing uiJ lhe situation, shied away 1ram participating in the spectacle. AI thi: point, the pl:esldent of White Salmon's Chamber of Com- merce could sland the abusive treatment of M,'. Woody and his guests no longe , and a::'Asted him in getting money for bait and to pay the wreckel. We an, certain tha! Mayor Vinch, whose courtesy to all is well known, and his other gentlemanly police officers must be embarrassea by Mr. Brown's contemion that if Oregonlans don't like our laws "They can stay on the oilier side of the river where they goddam well belong.' -Nolhing can undo the damages o,f such official discourtesy. All the efforts of the Chamber of Commerce, town officials, and other police ofticers to make White Salmon a pleasant place to shop and play, can be sacrificed in one such unfortunate tantrum. Personally, we like Officer Brown. He takes his duties seriously. His duty is often unpleasant, and his pay small. He is physically qualg- led to enforce the law when eourlesy ,is no* mutual. But registing an officer and resenting abusive treatment are two different things. No town can condone a public servant who antagonizes visitors, any more than it can respect a newspaper Lhat "covers up" or ignores such an incident. mill i i i iii i CLEAN UP &ND GARBAGE SERVICE TRUCK AVAILABI FOR EXTRA HAULING BINGEN GARBAGE SERVICE LEE GLOVKA I July 13, 1951 Mr Bernard Pollard White Salmon, Washington Dear Bernard: I can say these things in person, WE CONQUERED THE UJILDERE$- Cut, courtesy Underwood Soil Con serv'ation District. WILD HONEY I saw a man stand in a field, alone, And 'round about him knee-deep waved the grain, Ripened with summer sun and tall with rain. His eyes stared tearless at a mound of stone. Here she had piled with him, without a groan, Boulder on boulder where the ice had lain In ages past over the fertile plaits. He did not hear the wild bees' constant drone Beneath the heap, or know that through the years The rocks were knit with hidden honeycomb. But this he knew, that they were pioneers And it had been hard work to make a home Where fields were once strewn thick with rock and stone And farms were built with aching flesh and bone. ,, I Garden Secrels Plant or Weed? Q--What is the difference be. tween a flower and a weed? I bought some myrtle from a florist. and it's taking the place. A--There can be too much of a good thing. Even a beautiful flower that grows in useless abundance qualifies as a weed. Any plant that cannot be restrained to the spot in- tended for it must be considered a weed. Get rid of the myrtle--ff you can. Geraniums Literal transl'aion of the word "geranium" is crane's bill. The flow- er is named a,fter its long-beaked seed pods. In California, geraniums thrive like a weed. In this area, na- ture restrains them to behave as a flower... Their beautiful foliage and long, blooming period make .them inval- uable for outside mass plantings, and if properly cultured, as winter CAMERA FOND DOE SNAPPED Frank Lewis and Ray Filloon, of Troutlake, were recently stalking a wild blue gentian. Casting cau. lion to the winds, they left their trusty camera in tke car. As they returned ,to get .it, a female deer browsed curiously near their car. Ray's camera ginger itched for a shot. The doe was undaunted and stood her ground. With trembling fingers Ray got his camera and ook nervous aim. The trophy: as pretty a deer picture ,as you'll ever see. -- :11) SUN :lO Moulting Time At relative liesure waiting for the chickens to moult, Mr. and Mrs. Ed Brislawn, W.

Jo Marsh i What's So Funny? Sust finished reading a magazine article that "proves" you and I don't know what's funny. A bunch of psychologists came to this sad conclusion ater telling jokes to college students. Very often they would give out with what they considered a side-split- ter-and not get even a chuckle in response. Other times the stu- dents would laugh their heads off at stories that weren't considered really funny. Maybe I'm wrong, but what makes a psychologist such a better /'7)_  I//#/ , judge of humor than the rest of ii ,, ,rh,m Cop) right, 1951, Uliii  Brewers Foundal,,s us? If a man gets a kick out of a joke that proves it was funny to him--doesn't it? From where I sit, when psychol- ogists try to set up a standard for a sense of humor they're getting too serious for me. Stands to rea- son that different people laugh at different things, just as they have different tastes for most every- thing.
