The golf-) ers of the Redlands Country Club have declared war on ,the gopher for the pestiferous rodents are making a great effort to undermine the Bolf links of the club. For several weeks the gophers have been hard at work with the result that tom of the greens are criss-crossed vlih furrows. Several methods of ridding the grounds of the pests have been attempted but none found to be efficacious. The "'smoking out' remedy was a frost. Smoke guns of rags and kerosene were made and the tunnels filled with smoke but It did not so in to effect the gophers at nil. (Some of the tunnels wore uneov ered and a regular labyrinth dlS' closed.7 Small store-rooms were found filled with nuts and grain and la one tunnel a golf ball was round. The gophers have never been a menace' to the links of the club be-tore, but they are so bad that the members of the rlub have appealed to tho government for aid. That the government thinks St worth while for the motor car man ufacturer to take p .the problem of the aeroplane was shown recent ly by the vlHlts of tho Fignni thorps, representative of tho army and navy, at Detroit, Buffalo and other points, with a vie wto establishing aviation training stations at Detroit and Buffalo at least.

Winners Announced for All the Events. inv A. P. NIGHT WUIE.l NEW YOIUC, Deo. S3. In reviewing the season of 1916 the United States National Lawn Tennis Association has prepared data to show that the playing period of the past months was the moHt remarkable In the history of the court game In this country. The report states, In part: "The tournaments sanctioned by the association showed an Increase of 26 per cent. In 1916 over 1915. In 1915 the Hanking Committee examined the records of 2697 players, to determine who should go into the first ten.' This year the figures were 4506, an increase of f7 per cent. When it Is considered that these refer only to players competing in tournaments officially sanctioned and therefore take on account of thous ands who enjoy tho game, but who do not go in for tournament competition, the increase Is noteworthy. In St. I.oiiIh, for Instance, more than 0,000 permits were issued to users of municipal courts in the parks. Probably not 100 of these players appeared in sanctioned events. In Washington, D. C, more than 9000 permits went to users of public courts, and in Cleveland the number was about 12,000. Such re ports, front cities so widely sepa rated, snow tennis players no longer are colon IzcJ.

' "Although the European war prevented David cup matches, the presence of Iehlya Kumagae and Hachl-sblro Mlkaml of Toklo, Japaa, gave an international navor to many tour naments In this country, Kumngae's remarKame playing resulted In victories in the Newport, New York State and Central States tournaments and ended by his being ranked No. 5. Mlkami went into class No. 3 of players from 31 to 40. Public Interest in far-eastern tennis has been further stimulated by the 15,000-mile trip undertaken by Harold (Throckmorton and George Jf. Church, who left a short time ago to play for the championship of the OrU-nt. "The year was marked also by the passing of a remarkably popular figure,' when Maurice E. Mc-Loughlln of Los Angeles was not ranked, because he failed to compete in enough tournaments. This was the first year since he broke Into the 'first ten,' In 1909, that he did not win a place. In 1909 he was No. 6, and subsequently No. 4, No. 2. No. 1 In 1912, 1913 and 1914, and No. 3 In 1916. Although 'The Comet' probably will play tennis for years to come, most followers of the game doubt that he will ever be able to regain the high rank that he has consistently held during the years in which he has been the most spectacular figure in the tennis world. IMPORTANT. "Tn the administration work of the national association the most Important feature was the develop ment or play for youngsters, culminating in tho Junior and the boys' championships. Competition for these titles was inaugurated on a sectional basis, about ninety tournaments being held, in which some 1700 players took part. Along the same line was tho creation of a national championship for users of public courts, under the auspices of the National Municipal Recreation Federation. This provides tournaments on a sectional basis for pbiy-ers who use municipal courts, twelve cities entering In 1916. St. Louis defeated the New York team in the finals and holds for one year the trophy offered by the national association. "From more than 275 tournaments sanctioned by the United States National Lawn Tennis Association the following events are selected as the 'high spots' of 1916. Their winners stand as the principal figures In the biggest Beason the game has known: NATIONAL TENXIS rHAMnOXSIUIx-lnlS. Mn'a rinirlep Rlrhard N. William. II, Boston. Men' (loilNcs W. M.

Xanook Never Hore Any Ill-will If Punlslwd and was Independent. Outlook: Archdeacon Stuck in "Ten Thousand Milos with a Dog Sled" pays a feeling tribute to his best dog, Nanook. The dog loved to play a game of "toe-treading" with his master; and whenever Nanook won he "would Heine my ankle in his Jaws and make me hop around on one foot, to his great delight." He was a wise dog, and knew in ad vance Just where the party would atop! for the night, infallibly recognizing a good camping place and lifting up his voice tn delight. Cold meant little to him. Fifty, 60, 70 below zero, all night long at such temperatures he would sleep contented ly. "He would stand and take any licking you offered and never utter a sound but give a bark of defiance when you were done, and he would bear you no Ill-will in the world and repeat his offense at the next op portunity.' , Nanook learned to open a gate. contrary to orders. One day, gays Arcnneacon stuck, when this happened, "I picked up a stick and gave him a few sharp blows with it. Then I said: 'Now, you stay Iji here; I'll give you a sound thrashing If you do that again.' The moment I loosed hia collar the dog went deliberately to tne gate, pulled out the wedge with his teeth, lifted the latch and opened the gate, then turned round and said to me: 'liow-wow-wow-wow-wow!' It was so Dointed that a passer-by who had paused to see the proceeding said to me: 'Well, you know where you can ea to!' That's the dog-gonedest dog I ever seen: "Nanook's end was pathetic. Mortally hurt by a misguided horse's kick; Nanook knew perfectly well that it was all over with him. When I put my face down to his and said: 'Oood-by,' he licked me for the first time, in his life. In the six years I had owned him and driven him I had never felt his tongue before, though I had always loved him best of the bunch." ' Animals Predict Weather. Chicago Herald: . A dispatch from Duluth yesterday brought the old story that the northern Indians are predicting a mild winter because the fur-bearing animals have light coats and the squirrels are not gathering nuts. Cy De Vry was given an opportunity to forecast the weather from the coats on the .bears and squirrels in Lincoln Pjirk. "You can t get me to stand for that fairy story," said the zoo head. "There Is no truth in it. The animals put on their winter coats In the fall and the fur gets heavier as the weather gets colder. If the squirrels are not gathering nuts it's because they haven't enough sense to do so." Prof. C. B. Cory, curator of zoology at the Field Museum, laughed at the idea of forecasting the weather from the winter coats of bears. "They don't know any more about whether it will be cold or not than we do. They put on their winter coats in the fall and keep them until spring. It is just as heavy the fall before a mild winter as before a severe winter. "As for the squirrels, many species collect only a few nuts. They sleep most of the winter and don't need food." The Value of Goats' Milk. Youth's Companion: The Increased cost of milk would be a good thing for the country if it should lead people to keep goats. For some reason goats' milk has never been popular in America, although in Europe, especially in France, Italy and Switzerland, it is much esteemed, particularly for babies. A goat can be kept at a small expense where It would be Impossible to keep a cow. Garden waste and roadside browse will support It. A small shed affords sufiicient shelter. A goat Is far cleaner It its habits than a cow and requires only such care as a child can give it. Let us get goats.

Philadelphia Press: The spectacle that the Louisiana State Board of Education has presented In banning a primary school reader because Is contained a 'perfectly scandalous" collection of "Mother Goose" rhymes for the delectation of very small scholars will be thoroughly enjoyed by every one who ever read those same rhymes, not only In this country, but In every land where the-Eng-lish language is spoken. Certainly, none without blinding prejudices or a dyspsptio grouch can hope to appreciate their viewpoint. The board Includes In its membership the Governor of the State and a number of men' whose title of professor would Indicate that by their very training and work they were In sympathy with the Ideals and delights of childhood. One would have thought that rather than ban a single rhyme of "Mother Goose" they would have been glad to Incorporate every one of those pleasant tongue twisters and alliterative Jingles in the curriculum of the kindergarten and the primary grades. Certainly, there are few persons In the country today who have not learned the innocent little nursery rhymes at their mother's knee or In school, and many remember them throughout their lifetime. Of course they are absurd. Their charm rests largely in the fact that they are absurd. But on top of that the Louisiana School Board performs a feat of mental gymnastics and takes the absurdities seriously, charging that they belittle "that class which the city folk sneerlngly refer to as rubes and hayseeds." And the unassuming cause of all this discussion and dissention seems to be the couplet: "A gentleman rides gollopy-trot. And a farmer rides hobble-de-hoy." Probably the members of the school board in their excessive dignity and ponderous knowledge have discarded long since those rhymes they learned at their mother's knee, know and loved in the earliest days of their childhood: Itock a-bye baby, on the tree top, A dlllar, a dollar, a 10 o'clock scholar, or Ride a cock horse to Banbury Cross. The Louisiana school board may have forgotten them and lost all love for them, but it Is safe to say that the mothers and fathers of all the land who knew them in childhood and tell them now at bedtime to the little ones of another generation will receive the dictum with an entirely different viewpoint, and certain it is that the nursery rhymes will go on through the generation, Bchool boards or no school boards. Chinese Albumen. Argonaut: Vast quantities of eggs are purchased by albumen factories at Hankow, China, standing contracts being made with the natives wherever possible. Upon the arrival of the eggs at the factory they are subjected to a candle test, then washed and brought into the breaking-room where the yolks and whites are separated. The liquid albumen Is then allowed to ferment for two or three days, during which time the clear liquid settles to the bottom of the barrels and is drawn off into pails by means of a stopcock. During the process of fermentation the acidity of the albumen becomes rather high, and in order to neutralize this an alkaline substance, usually ammonia, is added until litmus gives the alkaline test. The final stage in the conversion process U the drying of the albumen in shallow metal pans previously coated with- vaseline, which takes place in steam-heated rooms ranging In temperature from 130 to 140 deg. Fahrenheit. When completely dry the albumen is packed in wooden boxes lined with metal, zinc being used as a rule, ready for shipment. - Dayton The Perfect Non-Skid Tire This Dayton tread comes as near to a perfect non-skid as any tire can.

Chicago Journal: About the most dangerous form of lawlessnesf confronting American cities today is automobile banditlsm. In spite of all the daring exploits which have been perpetrated In this Hue, the Journal -does not believe that the full possibilities of the motor car as an instrument of crime have been exploited .by the powers that prey. Obviously, this paper will not explain the reason for Its belief, and thereby take the chance of giving a hint to criminals; but it does urge society to adopt better safeguards against thLs new land piracy. One improvement that could be put in force at once is to restrict the issuance of licenses to chauffeurs. The moral qualifications of a candidate for license should be Inspected most carefully, and conviction of crime should bar him, automatically and forever, from the privilege of driving a car. Of course, the bandit who was at large and knew how to drive would not wait, for a license, but doing without one would add to his risks. It is quite probable that motor brigandage will force every State to adopt a State Constabulary. Clearly, the local police are handicapped when dealing with criminals who can dodge from town to town at fifty miles per hour. A State force, organized on the lines of the Canadian mounted police, would be In much better shape to deal with this evil, and co-operation between the constabulary of Illinois and Indiana, for example, would be simpler and. easier than between the Sheriff of a county on one side of the line with the police of a city on the other. Whatever the means employed, society needs to recognize and deal with auto banditlsm. It is the most menacing variety of lawlessness abroad today. BY-PRODUCTS OF WAR. Many Industrial and Living Problems Solved by European Scientists, Cincinnati Times-Star:) Some big changes are already under way In the distribution of industries among the nations. Countries which have held special chemical secrets and manufacturing methods are bound to lose some of their monopolies, and other nations will gain in proportion. This is an enevltable result of the great war. Necessity has been the great spur to this movement. The cutting off of supplies has forced nations to hustle for themselves, and in the scramble they have laid the foundations for a new self-sufficiency. France, Great Britain, the United States, the Scandinavian countries and even Germany have been obliged to put their brains and originality to work to solve difficult scientific problems. In Great Britain, for instance, the famine in optical glass set the scientists to work to discover a process I used in Germany. It was found, and today Great Britain Itself is independ-dent of foreign supply. A suitable formula for making a glass bead needed in incandescent bulbs was found under the spur of need, and another industry has been started. These are but two small instances. The total Is large. In America we have already found a way to make more than 100 of the 950 kinds of dyes we use, which is a fairly creditable accomplishment for a single year. We are likewise turning our hands to many other kinds of pro- ! duction with which we formerly dal lied in a half-hearted way. Nearly every country is undergoing similar experiences, and In the end there are bound to be some striking changes In what UBed to be the normal course of international business. News Scraps, Oil of cedar Is one of the anti-mosquito drugs. New York is spending $330,000,000 on subway construction. The Mexican seacoast on the Pacific and the Gulf of California Is 4S74 miles. Argentina is constructing a single irrigation system which will cost $60,000,000. This country produces nearly $3,000,000 worth of natural mineral water a year. j Argentina has nearly 8.000,000 inhabitants. This Is nearly twice as many as in 1895. There are 2,500.000 freight cars In the country, and their average life is somewhere about twenty years. Valuable deposits of lignite have been discovered In Sicily. The material Is brown, but partly carbonized. Profits of six principal meat companies of Argentina In 1915 was reported at $9,000,000 United States currency. Tho Long and Short of Wills. Tit B1U: Considering the amount of money that he left, 12.600.000. the late Earl of Clani-carde'a will was one of the shortest on record. The amount he left worked out roughly at 12,600' a word. Actually the shortest will was that of a Mr. Thome of Streatham, who wrote his will on the back of an old envelope. It consisted of only three words, "All for mother." and disposed of over 8000. Mr. Plteairn. one of the leading men of the Pennsylvania Railway, who died In 1909, left 3,000,000 to his widow. The will contained only twelve lines "of typewriting. A doien lines were also sufficient for Lord Russell of Ktllo-wen's estate, though In his rase the fortune was only 150.000. The longest will on record was that of Mr. Edward Bush of Alveston, Gloucestershire, who died In June, 1909, and left 144.000. The will was no fewer than 26,000 words tn length, tilling over eighty foolscap sheet of typewriting. Hurry. DEER SHOULD BE PROTECTED. Automobiles and Good Roads t rv t. 1 lt; . w urn iiurusmp. Game Stands Good Chance of Being Exterminated, Closed Season of Four Years Would Help Matters, Some drastic action must be taken hurriedly If Southern California is to have any wild game at all. Last season the killing was veritable slaughter. Two or three more such and the deer will take its place with the stuffed buffalo In somo museum. CHARGES. The automobile and the good roads have brought, the forests and the waste places where the wild animals live within a few minutes' ride of the city huntsman's door. It used to be when a man went deer hunting, ho was gone for a week or a month. Now he merely rises at daylight, Jumps in his machine and is back for work at 9 o'clock with or without his deer, depending on hiH luck. , The result has been that thous- ands are hunting today who did not hunt three years ago. They didn't have the time, nor the willingness to rough it. nor the hunter's instinct. SOME BUNCH. Last year a man stood along the Malibu and counted the hunters as they paused. Between daylight and darkness, 117 went by: 117 hunters pnssing one place in twelve hours ( that means that probably a thousand were out that day. It means that thousands were out during the season. No game can exist long In the face of mobs like that. So the deer and every other wild game is going. The sport of the hunt has decreased and the lust to kill has increased as the means of access to tho forests have become easier. NO FUN. Killing chickens in one's back- yard isn't much success as a hunt. The only way anybody can get any excitement out of it is seeing how many they can kill in an hour or in three shots. The whole object with the hunters nowadays is to see how many limits they can get and how fast they can get them. That la the only sport a man can possibly get when he mo. tors to the scene of the hunt in a limousine and tramps arouud in hlf bedroom slippers. Not only . have the uneducated army of hunters, the spoilers, killed merely for lust's sake, but they have Killed blindly. Does, fawns and spike bucks He rotting in tho canyons. NOT RIGHT. 1 So great has the killing become, that the animals cannot possibly breed as fast as they are killed, .or even one-half as fast. When they are gone, they are t gone for all time. Streams cart be stocked with trout from hatcheries, but you cannot restock the forests with deer, no more than the plains could be restocked with bison. The real hunters of the South, seeing the imminent danger, have proposed a closed season for the next four years. In that time the fast thinning game would have a chance to. breed and grow unmolested. They rhould easily more than 'double. Then the bars could be taken down ! again, probably never as far as to- , day, but enough. j COACn BEZDEK . THINKS IIE'S LOST. BY DIRECT WIHB EXClXSIVE DISPATCH. UNIVERSITY OF OREGON, EtJ-gene (Or.)
