Congratulations.Bam! "The best laid schemes o' mice ,TOd- jnen - gang -aft agley." So wrote Robert-Butns. Although not on speaking ieruK with mii:e, we can vouch. for the men. The. weather, gods, frowned on Easter Sunday «nd so the Llorts Easter -egg hunt -was rained out. Some' of the'city's small try did Show up, although *iot in Easter finery. Those who came vfece allowed to. hunt for eggs and keep any found, but no prizes were awardbd; Ail are invited to come and try their sleuthing on April 11; same time," same place. For the benefit of ferMitly,' come April- 11. -Some people are wondering -why the eggs were hidden when the.fadlo prpdicted rain. Perhaps the'-Lions are optimists. Why-theyididntsgo out' and. pick ,up the 90 dozen, eggs after.itf.started raining?- .Perhaps th'ey- couldn't remember .Where they hadhidden them Or perhaps their .Avalst lines -wouldn't allow it Other plans that the* weatiier gods fouled up were those of riolph CamUU- and Sam Petty. They and Bert Hainmond had planned to fly to Sacramento for ihe opening game of the Pacific Coast League baseball-series,. The overcast skies . grounded Dolpb, and Sam, while "I3oc" grounded MBI Hammond. :Too bad, gentlemen. .. •While,on the subject of planes, a new one -will soon be seen locally.^ When you think you are seeing flying steers don't vow to leave that bathtub gin alone; for it ^viU be just George Newhall's •new'Beeehcraft, flying Jo-w, 'sis the gentleman had it painted green' and .decorated with a longhorn and his "brand.

Consequently they received citations frorn the lifehway officer for violation of the basic speed laws and for driving over the center line. After -which, on March 26, they xeceiVed a sentence from Judge Fred Foprd of a $50 fine; $25 of which was siis-. pended, -That, however, was the lighter, side of the accident. Six persons were injured; luckily, none seriously and the LaComb vehicle was a total loss. , '• Another basic speed law violator was Mtlton H. Durham, who left Judge 'Foords office $25 poorer. Warning: Selling liquor to Indians is not only unla-wful, it is evidently unprofitable. It must be for when on March 26, Jack Hurd was charged with .selling liquor to Indians, found guilty and sentenced, by Judge Allan Sacry to either .2 days m the county jail or $50 fine, Hurd thought It over and now has his mail forwarded ;to the Mendocino county bastile. Back m WiUits are the John Kiralys, who combined business and pleasure last week and visited his folks in Richmond, while John went to San Francisco on a buying ti.'ip for Johnson's.

With her for the past -week has been her dalighter,-.Mrs. Sophia Keith." Graveside, services were held March-26 for David Lee, infant son of Mr. and Mrs.' Ben Birans- comlj of Willits. The babe, grandson of the George Harrahs, expired several hours after birth. Mrs. Fred Lindeman has not yet returned from Chico where she went to attend funeral services held recently for her sister; wb;? passed bway suddenly. Three new citiiens have ibeen added to the ever increasing population, two for Fort Bragg and one for WiUlts. The Port Bragg arrivals were Jeriy Wayne'Osborn for the Robert Osbom famUy, who appeared on the 27th, and Barbara Ann Ames, who arrived on the 26th. Hereafter the young miss can be found at the Harley Ames home. Representing Willits is Jennifer Ann Miller, who, thougli out- [tbwners when it"comes to age, for any scheming small fry who might have found a prize winning egg—jniimberisa, has "It over the out-of-j she Was born on the 26th.

On March 27- Francis" Cerratti reported to the police that a dead man Would be found ih- a cabin behind No. 90,-San Fi-ancisco avenue. Upon investiga-; tibn the officers found the body of i Charley Prihey, The body wasi found by Pascal Carrey, who rents; an adjoining cabin.; It was lying in^ the driveway. Pascal had been told by a man, as yet unidentified,: that a man was lying on the, ground. After ascertaining - that: the 'man •was Priney, Pascal and Gerratto carried him into the-cabin where the officers found him. Priney had made Willits his hpme for approximately four, years. OUier than that little is' knOwn of the man. He was born in 1878, but where, and if he has' living relatives is yet to be deter- rhined. - ' To be determined, too, is a local whodunit. Or, specifically, who took them; them being 44.4 gallons of gas out of the pump at Hampton's Pepperwood Auto Court. It all happened on March 24 and no one as yet can shed light •on the situation. You don't have to be a mathematician- to know that 44 gallons of gas for nothing is a bargain at the present fuel rate.'). Another mystery is, where were the civic minded and dancingly inclined people of Willits last .5»turday night? The music was good, the hall was warm and the Cause was good, but the financial results were embarrassing. Would someone who did not atten^ please inform ns or the Willits Fire Department, where they can^ purchase a sprinkler system for the city park for approximately $2. Not to mention the playground equipment they had hoped to install for the city youngsters. Those who were there thoroughly enjoyed themselves and had an extra hour of dancing—^from 2 to 3 a.m. The latter was through the courtesy of George Newhall, who braved the Covelo road to attend.. What are the people who didn't attend going to tell tourists when they criticize the burnt grass in our pari: this summer? The latest addition to the Willits Police Force is Willis R. Fenwick. He has replaced Virgil Horger and can be seen at any time during the day checking the parking meters. The man is^onna get you if yciu dont' feed that meter sufficiently. .Members of the W.I.C. are again reminded to attend the meeting on April 2 at the Veterans building and welcome, Mrs. Earl,B. Shpesmith and Mrs. Paul Alexander. Wonder if the 18 wonderful prizes offered-by the Willits Ath- lethic Club will be sufficient inducement ti lure some people down to the park pavilion Saturday night. Remember, win a prize or no, you still contrbute to the fund for lighting the ball park. Encouraged ' by a successful conquest, Dan Cupid has his eye on Miss Bernice Browh and her in. tended, EarlE. Drake, who took out their license on March 26. REDIOO VALLEY REDWOOD VALLEY, March 31 —More than 100 persons gathered Sunday morning at Denny's Autp, park on the Redwood highway neai' Laughlin for ' the sunrise Easter service.. Orval Coleman called the group to Worship With &! selection' on' the trumpet? an*| hymns were sung- by the. young"] people of- the Baptist choirfrbm; lUkiah.

As a result of weather conditions, Mr.' Denny took the eggs which had been given'-for this egg Hunt, to the school Monday where they were equally shared among the! children. The prizes which "had been donated by a numbfer of 'the Ukiah merchants will be be held over for an Easter hunt next year.
