Olympia. —Unless the bonus depart

ton veterans who have claimed the
bonus voted by the people to those
from this state who served in the
World War, many claims may not be
Already 110 registered letters con
taining warrants for the pay of vet
erans have been returned because
postal authorities have been unable t >
locate the men.
There are approximately 1,000 oth
er veterans who have failed to reply
to letters of inquiry. The claims of
these veterans are in the suspended
list. There is something lacking in
their application papers—some timed
a few minor details; in other instanc
es really vital information that mU4t
be had before the claim can be check
ed up and paid.
The bonus department has a num
ber of claims that have been hung U|>
since last April and May because the
auditor's force cannot get an answer
to the letters of inquiry sent out.
It is realized many veterans have
changed their addresses since filim;
thrir claims; some have moved many
times. But as few letters of inquiry
come back to the bonus department
because they cannot be delivered it is
believed that carelessness on the part
of veterans themselves is responsible
for a pai-t of the delay in closinir up
the work of paying added compensa
Unquestionably, the bonus depart
ment believes, there are many who

In figuring up the extra compensa
tion they received during the war, the
bonus department believes, many such
| men find they drew molt extra pay
than the amount of their bonus
; claims, hence they could not receive
j anything from the state. But even
' ir. such instances the department
] would like to hear from veterans to
! the books can be kept straight.
It la planned to semi registered lot
ten to about 1.000 veterans, askinv.
them for needed information or cor
rections to their claims. Return!
from the postoffice will show whether
these veteran* were located and their
Utters delivered. If, after getting no
tice, the veterans do not reply to the
department thier claims will be laid
aside; that is, they will be marked
"rejected without prejudice" so the
claims can be reopened if the veter
ans wish it. Letters also are being
sent to the "nearest relative" of the
men who fail to answer their letters
j in the hope help can be gotten from
' that source.
A careful check of office records
shows there are unpaid U.'.l claims
from men who enlisted in the army,
navy or marine corps prior to April
<!. 1917, and therefore under a recent
Supreme Court decision their claims
cannot he paid unless«the next legisla
ture grants relief.
A few stragglers are submitting
original claims. In fact, one man in
Clarke county, wrote the department
a few days ago that be had just heard
that Washington veterans were being
paid a bonus and he wanted to know
all about it. His home paper, a very
live publication, has been filled with
veteran news. Late last week there
were approximately 57,000 original
claims on file.
John A. Frater, who has been the
legal adviser of the bonus depart
ment since its organization, became
assistant U. S. District Attorney for
Western Washington, under Thomas
P. Revelle, on Nov. 1.
Driver's Licenses Fall Off.
There is a falling off in the demand
for automobile drivers' licenses. Di
rector Fred J. Dibble says. The num
ber of licensed drivers, now .slightly in
excess of 210,000, is only about 2o!()OO
greater than the number of licensed
motor vehicles. Manifestly, Director
Dibble concludes, many persons are
driving machines without an operat
or's license, but there may br a rush
of applicants with the beginning of
the new year.
It is evident now that the total
revenue from automobile licenses will
fall $50,000 short of the $3,(100.000 ex
pected this year. However the ratio
of increase indicates next year's gain
will offset this loss.
drain Growers Lose,
The Department of Agriculture i
trying to turn an annual half-million
dollar loss to grain growers of thi«
state into a profit, but until a thor
ough Investigation is completed it
will be impossible to locate the leak.
Every year, department officials say,
a small fortune is made by warehou le
men in screening the wheat ffoiny
through their hands. The iye, oats
am' ether cereals that are taken from
the wheat are counted as Warehouse
n<>n's profits.
Whether any rule cculd be enforce I
by the Department of I'ubli ■ Woik:
which would give fanners credit for
centals saved in screening is an owi
ipestion. The Department of Agn-
J culture will try to NCl.'Ver pay for the
] vheat growers if it is fount' DOSSIb c
to dp so, but it is admitted the chancj
i.» rot very bright insofar as past lu>

Among state officials who have t"

objection to any plan that would in

road construction pu-poses. Talk of
diverting this, or any increased tax
raised from gas sales, to the gen r.il
fund is bound tv meet with opposition
from good roads supporters in or out
of official life.
Merely as a suggestion and in the
hope that a discussion of the idea
might lead to some B-tfeptable plan
it has been .-ugegsted by some !i-j?h
--way officials that the license fee for
motor ears be reduced to a nominal
sum and the gas tax lie Increase 1 so
that the cost of road construction and
maintenance be borne by cars in the
proportion that they use the i Al
ways. A study of preliminary esti
mates indicates this plan \voul:l in
crease the tax paid by auto truck and
probably also make the cost (fr°ater
for heavy passenger cars, though
there would not be much change for
lighter machines. The suggestion is
that the automobile license fee could
almost be done away with, the change
made barely sufficient to pay for .'.
set of license plates and one registra
tion. This, it is elaimi d, would make
a tremendous saving in'the cost of i.-
suing licenses.
Commenting on this plan, State
Auditor C. W. Clausen, who also Is a
member of the highway committee,
insists that Washington cannot in
crease its gas tax out of line with
Oregon and California lest this state
lose its share of tourist travel. Ore
gon now charges 2 cents and Wash
ington lc a gallon for gas. Mr.
Clausen suggests a conference of
Coast states on the gas tax question.
Another suggestion made to start
discussion is that drivers be compelled
to show their operator's license before
they are permitted to buy gasoline.
Kre<l Wolf Gels a Park.
State Representative Fred T.. Wolf,
publisher of the Newport Miner, has
obtained a 10-aere park one mi'e
south of the Canadian border in ths
northeastern corner of I'end Oriello
county, which he has turned over to
the state parks committee.
Mr. Wolf induced W. H. Crawford,
a pioneer of the Northwest and own
er of the land, to donate the park site
on which is located the famous Gard
ner's Cave. When the property is
cleared Mr. Wolf predicts that a num
ber of other natural caves will be
disclosed and a rare outing spot wi.l

As apples are of the acid fruits,
cooking them in either tin or iron
vessels must be avoided. An earthen
baking dish, an aluminum pot or pan. '
or the familiar agate Or granite uten
sil must be used.
Before deciding a- to the number
of apples you will bake, remember
that a left-over baked apple that has
been properly cared for is quite as
good the second or third day after
baking. It may be wise in order to
economize in oven heat to bake more
than you expect to use immediately.
Scrub the apples, remove the core
and a strip of skin an inch in width ,
from the stem end of the apple. This
will help to prevent the bursting of
the skin. Place the apple on the bak
ing dish, fill each cavity with brown
sugar and add a few grains of ground
cinnamon or a few drops of lemon
juice to each apple. A dot of butter
may he put here and there on the ap
Pour a little water, preferably hot,
into the bottom of the baking dish
and set the dish in a moderate oven.
Open the oven every ten minutes and
with a spoon dip the sirup over the
apple to prevent burning. Serve colH
either with the sirup in the dish or
with cream, plain or whipped.
