Willits at present is the scene of great speculation who is or who isn't going to run at the April 13 municipal election. Everybody and his brother'have been named as prospective candidates, but whose hats v/ill actually be in the ring will not be definitely known until noon of March. 4, the deadline lor the acceptance of nomination papers. The interest-in the election has been heightened within the last few days by the action of the city council in taking a "thumbs down" attitude to the. Lions Club 49er's Camp and Dance, which was scheduled tor Saturday, February 7. Inasmuch as the council would not o,k. seveial games which were on the program of the Lions activity, proceeds of ivhich were to pro-. vide gla.s.>>es for underprivileged school children, the affair has been po.stponed indefinitely. The edict of llie council was not ReneraJIy well received; and it is alleged that political capital may be made of their action. Residents of Willits have . not only the accuracy of their electric clocici: to worry about, but according to the request, made b.y the P.G.&E,, their nifihU .may, bo lui-ned into day. Due to the critical power shortage the P,G,&E, announced that all local sawmills will be asked to shut down da.y- time operations in order to conserve electric power. They suggest that night shifts be substituted, and consequently ':hangos are lilcely in the living and working, habits of many of the local residents. If, your hamburger has tasted different • lately it might be that it was venison, for according to evidence at the trial of Robert Ulifalo and Charles Boyco of Fort Bragg there was a strong possi­ bility.that the deer that these men had been killing out of season had been- sold -and served as .hamburgers, etc. Both Ulitalo and Boyce appeared before Judge Fred Poord who.fined them $800 each and iientenced them to six months in- jail. The men paid the fines and the jail sentences were suspended. WILLITS, Fob. 10—The hand of Fate was arrested and tragedy averted Tuesday-when little Donald Short and his sister entered 'the office of Dr. R. B. Smalley, clutching a paper sack and a dollar. Their eyes held all the misery of childhood's fear for the safety ol the canary that was in the sack. Th^' dollar was to pay any and all expenses their pet might incur, for to them i( seemed that the bird's hours were limited, and unless efficient medical aid was immediately found the little creature would choke. Although the doctor was not in, his receptionist ad- proteeds of which wij! go to bcnelit: the child welfare iirogram. P,ty the veteran's .'iorvice olTicer, Fred Fooi'd.

The man was a i sucess, both with children andj grownups. He was sponsored by: the So^ihomore class on February 6 and as the general impression | was "Bring him back again," it was checked up as a success fi'om both the entertainment and the financial angte. Another success was the cake sale on the 7th by Jobs Daughters. Incidentally, the money went toward a vary good cause. It v.'as forwarded to the Jobs Daughters Educational Fund, a source from which they may borrow money to complete their education, and repay when they are gainfully employed.

Business Women Initiate Doubtless the citizens of Willits are wondering why all the hilarity Tuesday night at Leak's hall.

New members were Mesdames, Anita Swope, Hulda Kister, Bonnie Boyington, Rene Redd, Helen Baldwin, Doris Elliott, Juanita Lewis, Alvera Saunders and Caroline Merchant. The third loud laugh was prompted when upon their return i they imitated the interview. The other laugh was due to Mrs. Bonnie Boyington singing halt a song, accompanying herself on the piano, only to discover that the last half had been lost or pilfered. Another thing that caused mirtb-^was Mrs. 2. Complex splices like this —thousand.s of them— went into the two million miles of wire we 've put in.
