p Alot of loud howling and bark
“ up trees at this week’s session
‘ the Amalgamated Groaners re
did in a draw With none of the
M factions winning anything
“touching a clear-cut victory.
Subject of the oratory was the
nutter of whether or not to keep
'W open one or more evenings.
N 0 retails merchants, who are ob
viously most concerned, were pres
ent— It was purely the voice of
the customer, who is not always
film- “We work all day—no
chance to shop,” was the chant of
the pros while the cons countered
with: “If you need something you
can find time to buy it.” The in
betweeners were willing to com
promise on a proposal that stores
, should open an hour later and stay
open until seven.
[BRIT
No doubt there is merit in the
last idea and there are sound ar
guments on all. Retail merchants
ina session Monday night discuss
‘ed the question and appointed a
special committee to make a study
night opening in other nearby
gmmunities. The merchants were
not in full agreement with the op
ming plan. But they did agree
that ‘if they decided to stay open
that Friday should be the night
and that 9 o’clock should be the
hour. In a dinner meeting Mon
day night they will go further into
the matter and also into the ques
tion of Christmas decorations and
other pertinent matters. All re
tailers are urged to attend without
awaiting a special invitation.
”WAYS
Several merchants are vehement
in their insistence that there shall
be no Saturday night Opening.
Help being what it is these days
it would certainly be difficult and
perhaps impossible to maintain
crews on Saturday nights. Friday
night would be a different matter.
MORNING
A suggestion has been made that
3mm stay closed one morning
each week to compensate for eve
' opening hours. We can wen
me that some'heavy sleepmg
could be enjoyed on that morning
-or maybe even a game of golf.
[any people who work regular
store hours week in and week out
have little opportunity to enjoy
daylight leisure. - ,V
m.
We are confident that careful
Wt and planning will result
no a solution that will meet with
the general approval of the mer
chants as well as the customers.
Whatever is decided, it is our sin
cse hope that it will be carried
out unanimously by all concerned.

Hunter Les! For
72 Hours Returns
Sale Bu! Hungry
A 72-hour search ended today
at noon, when Wyllis Wade Shook,
23, walked unhurt but very hungry
into a ranger’s station in the vicin
ity of Raven’s Roost, 50 miles
northwest of Yakima, on the south
fork of the Little Naches river.
A member of seven-man deer
hunting party, Shook became lost
in the heavy fog and snow of the
mountainous area last Sunday.
His safe return ends a search that
swung into high gear last night,
when a bus and two jeeps, loaded
with volunteer searchers, left
Richland to join the hunt.
Shook is employed in the Gen
eral Electric power department at
Richland. His fellow employees,
who accompanied him on the deer
hunt, avoided losing themselves
by maintaining contact with other
members of the party, despite the
fog and snow.
His brother, Manley Shook, also
a member of ,the hunting' party,
has searched continuously for him
since his disappearance Sunday.
Although his car was left parked
in its location in the hope that he
would find his way back to it,
Shook apparently wandered com
pletely away from the_locality. _
_ Mr: and ’Mrs. Shook are iresi
dents of Park View Homes.
Larsons Visit
Clifl Dwellings
Mr. and Mrs. Lane K. Larson
have returned from a 5,000-mile
vacation trip.
They visit'ed relatives in Red
Bluff, Santa Cruz, Oakland, San
Francisco and Los Angeles, on the
way down to old Mexico, following
the coast highway a good share of
the time.
Afte’r a trip into Mexico, they
went to Arizona.
As they are interested in ar
chaeology, they visited several
prehistoric pueblos and cliff dwell
ings, some dating back to 600 AD.
Among some of those visited were
Tuzigoot National Monument
puebla of 110 rooms. '
Casa Grande National Monu
ment includes the remains of one
of the most remarkable of the
Southwest’s ancient structures.
An enormous canopy has been
constructed over the watchtower
part of it to protect it from fur
ther weathering.
Puebla Grande is in the east
part of Phoenix, where archaeol
ogists have found the ruins of
some 20 pueblos in the Phoenix
area and about 125 miles of .irri
gation canals, some of which the
city of Phoenix i's using today.
Montezuma Castle National
Monument is not a large cliff
dwelling, but for many reasons, it
is the most fascinating. It’s 20
rooms are stacked up caste-like in
five tiers, almost completely fill
ing a deep niche in a perpendicu
lar canyon wall overlooking Bea
ver Creek. Due to the excellent
protection of an overhanging ledge
it is the best preserved cliff dwell
ing in the United States. -
They also visited the Petrified
Forest, Painted Desert, Meteor
Crater, which is privately owned
by a family in Chicago. _,
They saw Sunset Crater, .both
the North and South Rim,of Grand
Canyon and Boulder and Shasta
dams, Death Valley and numer
ous other points of interest and
following up their hobby of find
ing more Indian artifacts to add
to their"collection.
Perfect weather every day made
it an immensely enjoyable trip.

Prof; Frederick Kirsteh ot the

Prof. Kirsten charged that 1
eastern interests not only exploit;
the state's natural resources butl
lure away the “brains" of the pop-1
ulution. . 3
As a solution he proposed that
a super university he set up in the
state with a huge laboratory. Prog
mising students from all colleges
should be given an opportunity
‘to develop their talents in this lab-i
‘oratory. All items of use to the
people so produced, he said, should
be patented with provision that;
manufacture must be within the
state. 1
He drew a picture of what such.
a plan could do in developing new
industries and payrolls.
