STRAUSSEN GIVEN SENTENCE i 10 TO 15 years! John H. Straussen. who a short time ago, pleaded guilty to second de gree murder, was yesterday by Judge Frank P .Langan, sentenced to serve from ten to twenty-five years in the state prison for the killing of C. S. Pellor, on the road a short distance beyond Gardnerville, the first day of August. Straussen gave himself up to Dep uty Sheriff Hardy, of Alono County, at Colcville, who delivered the man to Sheriff Chris Xeilseti, of Douglas County, Xvada. Since he pleaded guilty to the sec ond degree murder charge Straussen lias talked somewhat about the killing of Pellor. According to his story a dispute arose over the fixing of the timer on the car. Straussen asserts that while he was adjusting the timer Pellor went to the tool box supposedly for some tool to be used in getting the machine in proper running order, but that lie got the hatchet and rushed at Straussen. The latter claims to have taken the ax from Pellor and to have dealt the fatal blows later on in the fracas. According to his version the la>t blow idled Pellor. As he got the machine started and was leaving had started for Southern Cal., and was again coining toward him. Pellor was a resident of Got’t, Cal., and was about 61 years of age. He had been employed for some time at Glen Alpine Springs and upon leaving had started fo rSouthern Cal.. intending to do some prospecting while en route.

A. Xorcross. state marketing specialist, from the San Francisco conference, says the Gazette. “California has the nematode in its potato area about as generally as we ■have it." he said. "That point was freely testified to at the meeting last Wednesday. The pest has become so destructive, not only to potatoes but to Other plants, including orchards and vineyards, that some drastic cam paign of control and eradication is about to he undertaken. “I submitted that both Nevada and California growers had produced the present crop in good faith, not antici pating any new restrictions on ts mar keting: that it was about the only crop in which there was any profit to the growers.’ and that it was vital to them to dispose of it. Moreover, that,' as there was a short crop generally, it was necessary to market from the standpoint of tin consumer.

A committee of 15 was appointed comprising officials, and representatives of the growers, potato dealers and consumers. This commit tee is to meet- at a later date and re port a plan of procedure. Dr. Johnson of the University of Califonia. and myself were appointed advisory mem bers of the committee. “California will likely adopt some more or less drastic measures of con trol. possibly to the extent of prohib iting the planting of infected potatoes and the growing of potatoes in infect ed ground. At any rate, so far as Ne vada is concerned, we may anticipate some rigorous quarantine regulations affecting next season's crop, under which we can only market clean po tatoes in California.’’ WATER IS NOW RISING IN LAHONTAN RESERVE Tile termination of the N’ewlands project irrigation season occurred on the 15th of ( tetober and ditches an now dry in all parts ot the valley, re ports the Falloii Standard. file water supply at Uahontan reservoir i> again mounting lip and had reached the 15t> COO acre-foot mark receiitl v. the capa city of the reservoir being it.t the neigh bor-hood of dOf.OOO aci’e-tcet.
