Last Wednesday night they held a special meeting, during which such subjects as the improvements made, and those 'that must be made tp the rodeo groundsi were discussed as was the Rodeo Sweetheart contest. Decisions made included still more work Sunday mornings, to which we might .add, the general public is cordially invitied, and the re-setting of the ages for girls eligible to participate in the sweetheart contest. Girls, if you hav6 celebrated your J5th birthday but not your 22nd, and you are single and can ride a horse, let it be known and some organization will back you, or if you choose, you may run Independently. It is still, anyone's race, so come on gals, throw in your sombrero and start selling. Police Dopairtment , If you have tieen scanning this column to see who the new member on the police force is, stop. Until proven that the force of four officers and chief is not sufficient to adequately cover the town there will be no new member. The department was responsible for locating Mrs. Lucille Parsons, 24, who: Velpped" ftom Imola hospital ill' Napa county on TWay 21, 1947. Working oh a tip from a bus driver, officers followed the woman, questioned her and in checking her story .found that things weren't quite as they should be. As a result, Mrs. Parsons was released to the custody of Napa hospital officials on April 28. The'police also pickbd up Frank Forehand for being drunk, after which • Judge. Allan Sacry fined him $15. Another name on the roster is that of Paul M. Cearly vyjio faces a charge of drunk and vagrancy. Both were booked on April 29. ft Mrs. Wallace Jay, was Honored by her friends at a no-host baby shower Wednesday atfernoon. The welcome for little Jay-to-be was at the home of Mrs. Ray Hilderbrand where the table was set with appropriate cloth and two rniniatiire plastic storks, each holding in its beak a wee bundle from heaven. Refreshments consisted, of salads, cakes, and beverages. The unsuspecting honoree walked into a room full of guests and gifts. On the'guest list were Mesdames Bill Lamprich and Diana, CJiester Dunn and Janiecu, Albert Arms and Stevie, Lloyd Watson, Donna and Elsie, Bill Hinton and Johnny, Ray Hilderbrand and Dlanne, Roy Ray, Cecil Reitzel, Al Heavner, Ted Ford, Ed Lamprich, Bessie Wonacott, Elvin Ford, Don Cameron and Mrs. Jay's other three children, Mary Ellen, Wallace, Jr., and Michael. A warm welcome to little Jay, the fourth. , Another social evening was that of the Catholic Ladies card party. The affair drew approximately 115 people, to play bridge and whist or just look on and partake of refreshments of coffee and homemade cakes which were served on tables decorated in spring apple blossoms. A door prize of an 8-cup coffee maker was given and a seat prize of five gallons of gas. Numerous other prizes were also awarded and all felt that the committee of Mesdames Fred Collins, Jema , Servant!, Pauline Petty, Martha Sullivan, Anet Kennedy and Anita Mangano had done a wonderful job. Lions Without Den Thursday 'night found the Lions routed from their, den. The Willits Lions Club, w'hich ordinarily meets at Andy's,' found themselves in need of a meeting place on April 29 when Andy's was closed. During their 'meeting at El Rancho Meson, Lee Wise, Dick Beachtel and Harry Kister were complimented on the able way the Easter Egg hunt was carried out. Inasmuch as one .batch of eggs was wasted, the whole affair cost the Lions in the vicinity of $150, but the pleased 400 kids at the high school auditorium made the monetary side of it seem less important. Seoul Activities Monday night found the Boy Scout executives at a meeting in W.I.C. hall. During business portion of the meeting Ted Matson reported on the Willits scouts who participated in the Scout-o-Rama in Santa Rosa. Taking the scouts down were Mr. Matson and Dick Goldsbury. At the Scout-o-Rama, the Willits boys saw all phases of scouting demonstrated and took an active part in the pack hikei At the close of the confab, the boys visitEd the ranch of W'. F. Bunae- scn .,Mr. Matson's unclCj near Santa Rosa. There the boys slept out and cciokcd their own meals over a campfire. Sunday they toolc a 5-mile hike to the top of Mt. Taylor where they cpuld look mto the Valley of the Moon and see Santa Rosa and Petaluma. Their last ,stop before home was to swim in tlie Russian river. Don't tell any of the following boys scouting isn't fun: Francis Lowerdt, Allen Malsjjury, Billy Pippin, Elwood and Glenwood Wagner, Carl and Billy Moore, Donald Ross and David Breeh. Seven Willits cub scours also participated in the Scout-o-Rama. They were Indians in Custer's Last Stand.'This fact, along with entertainment and future plans, was mentioned last Tuesday evening when they had a pack mee.t- ing. Plans for next month include ] a picnic to be held jointly with the Laytonville pack, tentatively on May 23. It will be held at Longvale in lieu of their pack meeting for May. Inasmuch as their project for this month is Indian Craft, they will display the fruits of their Jrbors at the picnic. Entertainment was the presentation of legendary figures by each den. Den. 1, Erma Hinton den mother, .presented Billy Horger as Paul Bunyan; Den 2 , chose Black Bart as their figure, but Bart rode by so fast we were unable , to get his name.^ The name of the dsn mother is Peggy Crocker. Johnny Appleseed was portrayed by Donald . Kenney of Mary Pag-:i's Den 3. Paul Reyere, Dora Donaldson's den, was too ruslved to give anything more- than the historic message, while Melvin Lee Butcher did a Paul Bunyan theme for Den- 5, undfei; Marie Van Cleeniput. All witnessing the cubs at work agreed they did a fine job. After the regular meeting of the Eastern Star, at which Worthy Matron' Thelma Sawyers ' and •Worthy Patron Bob Camp presided, the Job's Daughters Bethel exemplified part of their work. In appreciation of the invitation the young ladies presented Miss Sawyers with a hand-wrought aluminum candy dish. The vmrk of the Daughters was a pleasant surprise to the members attending, but tha dish was a surprise to Miss Sawyers, while the entertainment \ield afterward was a surprise even to those who issued the invitations. The girls had a vivifying program lined up in which Carol Robinson did a pantomime of Bubble Gum; June Page a reading of Patches for Pete; a recitation by Jane Holloway, song by Evelyn Heckendorf, and a monologue by Jeanne Donaldson. Their honoied queen, Barbara Couey, could justifiably be proud of therri all. Dessert ended the evening.

Both were taken to Willits where they parted company, thanks to Dr, Babcock's surgery. That was the last heard of the. bullet, but Coletti's ' tondition' is 'classified" 'as good. That will be a lesson not to walk across anyone's gunfire during a target practice,. Robert Tanem, Willits high school junior, competed in the semi-finals of the Knights of Pythias public speaking contest held on April 24- in Lakeport. Unfortunately for' Bob and Willits, a young lady from Ferndale convinced the judges of "The Debt of the Modern World 'to Ancient Greece more expressively than he or any others competing.

Good going, fellows! It may be May by the calendar but somebody must have set it ahead, judgtog from the storms, rain, and hail, and snow! Storms i-cause discomforts, but when you get wet, all you have to do is get dry. The moisture washes out the fillin' on the Main street and the chuck holes are back, and like the grow and grow." By summer if they keep on getting larger, .the citizens of Willits won't have to worry about a scarcity of swim- min' holes; just about life guards and amphibicars.
