MAY LOCATE EISH HATCHERY
AT SPRING SOUTH OK FALLS
A state tish hatchery will be located
in the big spring on the Arthur Davis
place south of American Falls, if the
sportsmen of southern Idaho have
their way in the matter. Otto M.
Jones, slate game warden is interested
in the proposed location and wrote
local sportsmen yesterday that he had
the matter under advisement and
would make a personal visit to the
proposed location as soon as possible.
Mr. Jones stated that he was strong
ly in favor of increasing the hatchery
equipment of the state and considered
the spring an ideal location.
The matter of erecting a hatchery
at the Davis spring is conceded to be
a matter of the support that will be
accorded the enterprise by the sports
men of American Falls and all the
southern part of the state. Steps are
being taken to assure the game ward
en of the support of the local men as
well as those in adjoining counties.
Should the hatchery be located here
it will mean that American Falls will
benefit directly as a shipping point and
will be somewhat of a rendevous for
anglers throughout southern Idaho.

EIGHT GRADUATES SAY
GOODBYE TO HIGH SCHOOL.
Annual Commencement Exercises Well
Attended. Rev. Willslc Martin Talk
ed of Good Americanism- Miss Gol

The tenth annual Commencement
Exercises of the High School were held
in the Auditorium on Thursday, May
29th. The graduating class of eight
members, Vergie Richardson, Fay
Brown, Gladys Runnion, Fred Nelson,
Hulda Nachtigal, Verne Grothe, Ruth
Stanger and Stahl Butler, were seated
on the stage which was beautifully
decorated for the occasion.
After the singing of the "Star Span
gled Banner," in which all joined
heartily, Mr. Charles Johnson spoke
the invocation. Verne Grothe made
the Salutatory Address, welcoming all
to their last gathering as a class. The
girls' chorus rendered very well two
selections, which were heartily ap
planded by the audience.
Gladys Runnion, the Valedictorian,
paid a beautiful tribute to the memory
of their departed classmate and presi
dent of the class, George Angelly. She
also thanked, in the name of the class,
the Board of Eduration, the teachers,
their parents and the members of the
other classes for the help given them
in their four years of High School.

Mr. Richards.
The Rev. Mr. Martin, just recently
returned from France, held the keen
attention of his audience with what he
had to say about the lessons he had
learned from his visit abroad. Ex
cerpts from his address follow:
"I have come back to this country
from my trip abroad with a new confi
dence in Republican institutions.
"It was the Republic from overseas
that turned its business organization
from art, from peace, from manufac
turing and built a great war machine
on French soil, and thus turned the
tide of battle.

GOVERNOR DAVIS WATCHING
RECLAMATION LEGISLATION.
Work of Appropriations Cdmmittee in
Congress May Bring Great Benefit'
to American Falls and Power County
Representative Smith Urges Spe
cial Provisions for Previous Service
Men.
Governor D. W. Davis is in Wash
ington. D. C.,to confer with the con
gressional representatives from the
state and members of the national re
reclamation appropriations committee,
in the interest of land reclamation in
Idaho. Power county, in fact, all of
southern Idaho is watching with un
precedented interest the reclamation
bills now before congress,
they pass as expected, local men be
live that American Falls will he the
center of the largest irrigation pro
ject in the west throègh the fact that
the dam to provide the reservoir will
in all probability be built across the
Snake river at American Falls.
Judge Rodgers of Boise appeared
Saturday before the house public lands
committee in Washington in support
of the bill to reclaim lands to provide
for soldiers. He made a special plea
that the millions to be appropriated by
congress be spent in developing gov
ernment owned lands, of which there
is an abundance, rather than that, they
be expended, at least in part for the
purchase of private lands for subse
quent reclamation.
He pointed out that states like Ida
ho, Utah and otliers in the (west have
an abundance of land which is already
in government ownership, and $500,
000,000 or any ether sum spent in re
claiming such lands would go further
than the same amount spent In the
purchase of pivate lands, and their
subsequent reclamation, either by
drainage or by stump removal. He
told the committee that Idaho and oth
er states have demonstrated the suc
cess of irrigation ; that these lands,
when reclaimed, cannot be surpassed;
that soldiers placed upon such lands
would be amid healthy surroundings
and better off than they would be In
swampy country.
protested to the public lands commit
Representative Smith of Idaho has
tee against limiting the benefits of the
soldier land settlement bill to honor
ably discharged soldiers, marines and
sailors who served since the déclara
tion of war against Germany. He is
asking that the bill be modified so
that it shall grant the same privilege*,
to those who served in tile army and
navy prior to the declaration of. war
against Germany, and particular',7 to
those who served on the Mexican bor
der and in the Spanish-American war.

Executive Committee uf Oregon ami ♦
Idaho Is Raising *,">(MMM) to Make t
Possible the Organization of Rural j ♦
or t'ountrj Type of Association ♦
— Greenwood Local I'hatrmnn. ♦

To make the Yong Men's Christian j ♦
Association available not only to those ♦
living in some of the larger cities, but ! ♦
to bring it within reach of 90 per cent ♦
of the elder boys and young men of i ♦
Idaho and Oregon, It is proposed to ♦
undertake a program that will within ♦

it b. 0taen wood is local chairman of i ♦
the committee to raise the money quota [ ♦
for Power county. He was Interview- ♦
ed this morning and explained the ♦
campaign as follows:
A very fair question being asked by
many communities as to what they I
may expect for the amount of money
ranging from $50 to *500, which they
may raise.
It would he Impossible to promise
every community which may be con
tributing that they will within the next i
year or two have some form of local
Y. M. C. A. effort. The poposed plan
will, however, bring the Association
work much closer to every community
than it has been before and will act
ually develop nn organized work in a
very large number. It is impossible to
say at this time which ones will be
served first. Murh will depend upon
the needs and the attitude of the peo
ple of the community In some cases
a long period of educational work must
be carried out before organization can
be effected on a sound basis.
Work Is Statewide.
The location of District Secretaries,
each one covering from ten to fifteen
counties, is necessary before county
work can lie successfully established
and maintained or before any work
can be carried on in local high schools,
industrial centers or on the community
plan In the larger counties it is
hoped the full organized county plan
could be put into effect; In other coun
ties, some work can be done at once In
high schools an in co-opcrntion with
other agencies.
Every community will receive an In
direct benefit from the work done In
their colleges and universities and
from the Boys' Conferences.
The larger appeal Is for work to be
done In the Btate as a whole. It Is a
matter of mutual Interest. Wherever
the character and life of boys and
young men is strengthened, whether
It be in the lumber camps, small towns*
collegs or cities, the whole state is
richer for the experience. We recog
nize this In every other public enter
prise in the state. A man who pays
taxed for road improvements is not
necessarily assured of a hard surface
road past IiIb door. Only a small per
centage of those who pay taxes to sup
port the State University and Agri
cultural College have sons or daugh
ters educated there.
While the object of this committee
In undertaking an enlarged program
is to meet the needs of all kinds ot
communities and to respond to their
uppeal for help, we cannot out of hon
esty and fairness promise everyone
that a Y. M. C. A. or Boys' Club will
be organized in their eommunlnty at
once or even within a year.

Poledor Matheopole had Just pur
chased hts second-hand Overland and
was taking Ills first ride in tile conn
try near the Ous Martins ranch, west
of town. Something happened, the
carburetor quit, work or the gasoline
feed pipes clogged, and Poledor was
alone in the middle of the road with no
power
A friendly neighbor came along with
a team and wagon nnd tied a rope to
Ills front axle and started to tow him
to town. All went well until they went
over the top of the hill aheud of them.
Then the car picked up speed and soon
was ready to run over the wagon. As
it gained speed Poledor became con
fused and the point of the story Is
that he ran over the rope Into the
ditch and when he came to the end ot
the rope his car tipped over. Poledor
suffered a few scratches and an In
jured hand. When the car was sal
vaged it wus found t o have a smashed
top and a bent axle.
