PASCOE RETURNS FROM JAUNT TO MEASURE SIERRA SNOWFALL K ERNVILL13, Feb. 10.—Only those few whoso business calls them Into the snowbound reaches of the high Sierra during the winter months has nrd the penetrating of that storm- | Lortured region. The few have a duty to execute, the completion of which determines to a large degree the volume of California's water supply for tho ensuing season. Karl Pnscoe qf Camp Pascoo on the Upper Kern river, accompanied by Shelby Williams, under the direction of the state water commission, has just returned from his first periodical trip of that nature In which ho measured snow depths In the Sierra ns fnr as Round Meadows. Much difficulty was experienced In reaching the snow gauge at that point, which stands at an elevation of 8963 feet, due to the dryness and fineness of the snow being traversed. Using sklls when possible, but more often employing snowshoes, progress was slow. So tedious was their travel that tho adventurers were compelled on their first night out to cnmp In the open, without food, shelter or bed- unable to reach the well-sup- illed line cabin en route. A consistent depth of snow, about feet, prevailed until within about miles of Round Meadows, An Increase In elevation of around 3000 feet VMS encountered during these 7 miles. At the Round Meadows gauge the lepth of snow was expected to be great, but was found to be only 5 eet. Old-timers here say that when heavy snows visit the lower altitudes, is has occurred this season, the fall n the higher mountains Is correspondingly light. Mr. Pascoe reports deor nro being slaughtered by coyotes. Tho fur of the coyote being now nearly valueless commercially, and no bounty on tho animal, leaves no Incentive for their trapping or extermination. Why Make Baking Mistakes? Baking success is "knowing vour flour"—Just ask any user of JENNY WREN, the ready-mixed, all-purpose flonr. With JE3NNY WREN, baking failures simply never hap- 1 pen—because this flour Is recipe mixed at the mills, for all baking uses. It bakes more df.liclously, economically, to your own discriminating requirements. A hundred and more uses, 4 pounds to the package, one all purpose flour, ready-mixed for Instant use—that's JENNY WREN. The most economical to hi'-- because it bakes more to the pound and never a speck wasted on failures. Try this recipe.
