D^tchon, who was on the ! reporforial staff of The Leader until he ; joined the colors some months ago, is i back in his former position grinding out j copv on the local staff of that paper ■again. Mr. Detchon was a flying cadet | and that it agreed with him is evidenced ! bv the fact that he gained weight.and ! comes back in better health as the result of the experience. He was making fine progress when the armistice changed conditions and made further work in that line unnecessary. BOYS ARE ARRESTED Adrian Ario. a school boy. and Matt 1 Seban. a smelterman, were arrested on | Central avenue shortly before midnight for allegedly discharging firearms within the citv limits. The officer making thf arrest I«-ft the report that the pair had fired a revolver into the air. and by way of defense it will probably be explained that they hit upon this brilliant scheme of appropriately bidding farewell to the old year.

I turned in the alarm," ; said the voice on the wire, "and it seem ed that the department was on the ! ground before I could hang up the re i cciver.

Eklund of the Gibson studios got a hurry-up call last night wirUe he was witnessing the performance at the Grand opera house, telling him that his studio was on fire. He and Mrs. Ekiund made a hasty and unceremonious exit from the theater and got to the studio in nothing flat, for they had left their child at home and word that the house was on fire didn't have a cheerful ring to it. However, while it was a closing event for the old year, it proved to be a happy one. l*or it was - a false alarm. They did find there bad been legitimate cause for sounding an alarm as there had been smoke in unusual volume caused by a stove being filled with coal by someone and the damper turned. They adjusted matters and later returned to the Pantages show. • CALL FOR LUNGMOTOR A call for the fire department's lung motor was sent in yesterday afternoon from 19% Second street south, at which place it was reported that a Japanese had been overcome with gas.
