The El Cerrlto pitcher allowed only ilve hits. Fof the Sluggers, Balrd turned In a'flawless job for the first six Innings, only to have his record mirred by Figone's 3 -bBgger in the, seventh. Things fell apart in the eighth when the El Cerrlto heavy guns pummeled him for three more hits, including a home run. Openshaw took over the pitching labors in the final frame without allowing a hit. Playing a loose brand of ball, the Sluggers failed to get their hits when they needed them. r».But the Talmage nine showed a return to th^ir earlier gloss by pplishing off the Merchants in the Sunday event 12 to 5.

Cy Ross of San Francisco, representing the fire underwriters, discussed at some length the or- ganisTation of rural fire districts. He said he had made a trip over the territory that was to be included within the district and had found that with the northern limits at the Forks and the southern end in the vicinity of Burke hill, and including the width of the valley, that lire apparatus at Ukiah, answering some calls would have to travel more than four miles, whiph appears to be the maximum distance a truck should be required to travel in answering a call. Mr. Ross rather tavojred extending the limits to include Hop-, land on the south and Calpella on the north and placing a flre-flght- ing apparatus at Hopland, Vkiah and Calpella. This extension could also include- Redwood Valley where they have h^d an efficient fire fighting organization for a number of years, although a purely volunteer arrangement with equipment purchased by popular subscription.

Baptists Report ' Important Gains Students Write Of San Francisco Trip The annual', meeting of the First Baptist church was held April 28 in->the church sanctuary with lairge numbbr. of members and friends in attendance^ , i .'Reports of the, various departments showed the largest and most remarkable gains in the history of the church. Gf outstand' ing importance was the fact that the Sunday school has an average of .190 each week for the past three months. More members have been: received Jnto the. church than at any other tlmeC J!xpendlt\ires for the year tO; taled $16,270 with ovir. $5000 gO: Ing again for missons and benevor lences.

Frank Zeek, principal of the elementary school and W. A. Chessell, high school principal, were the speakers who analyzed and defended modem education. They were introduced by James Busch, program chairman. Zeek feels that students will gain more from reading if the content of what they read is stressed above the mechanical process of reading.. He ilustrated his talk with copies of the McGuffey readers of the past and modern school books with colored Illustrations which help to associate ideas with pictures. He also discussed with approval the $225,000 school bond election which would provide a new elementary school on the proposed site on South Dora street. Defends New Methods Chessell defended modem teach-1 ing methods against the frequent charge that they art supei-ficial and that boys and girls leave school unprepared for practical The deficient individual is a deficient student, as well as a misfit in adult life, Chessall said, and the trend of education is toward helping such individuals to adapt to their inevitable problems. The union high school, which brings students from.outlying districts into one efficient, well-staffed plant, is one of the­ velopments of modem education, Chessall said In pointing btit that the local'high school would serve only about one-third of the students now enrolled if it were not for unionization and the excellent transportation system maintained by the union district. ... Davis For Pr «slde)nf Carl Daubeneck, president, led the discussion for publicizing the promotion of W. K-. Davis of Ukiah for district governor.

A program to conserve and control floods on. the Russian river was recommended by the Army Co*^s of Engineers in a report made public Tuesday, v , , The program includes construc- tionof.a $16,900,000 dam in Coyote valley about four miles northeast of ^ Ukiah oh • t he Ukiah-Talioe highway, route 20. • " Also recommended for the immediate future is"a $900^000 channel' stabilization program on the Russian ''river and future construction Of a reservoir, on Dry creek about four and one-half miles west of Cloverdale; Lessen Flood Damaga The report: says that the immediate prqgram would decrease f u- IJireflcod damage in the Russian liver area by 60 pet ceni;, would proyKSe a miftimum; of 200 acre feet of water in: the Russian river resort area, throughout the summer- and fall, and -would provide atl^uate municipal 'and industrial water-supplies for Ukiah and the Sanel valleys. The engineers' report locomv mends a 2-stage construction of the Coyote valley dam: Initially It would be built for a storage capacity of 122,000 acre ffcet, at an estimated cost <?f $18,900,000. Enlargement to the ultimate capacity of 199,000 acre feet, the report said, would be delayed until there Is demand for water supplies in areas outside the Russian river basin. Eventually, according to tiie engineers'-report, a local flood control and ,^ water conservation district will be formed, with its boundaries closely following the "boundaries of the Russian River watershed., , The '. body Will be responsible for co-operating financially with the federal government and for taking over - the local share of maintaining the project following the. completion of construction. The report adds that this does not preclude contribution of fundis by the state and other subdivisions of local government. Completion of the. report follows a long-*ght for fiood control measures on the Russian river. .Tt was not until recently, with the rapidly expanding population of the northbay area, that water conservation also became an element of the project. Pitmeered Flood Control As early as 1930 a group of rodents along the Russian river watershed first agitated for flood control.

Assuming, from the skittish attitude of congress toward UMT—m an election year—that opposition was likely to be violent and vocal, particularly, among women, we framed our question, "Are you opposed to universal military training?" . The majority of Ukiah people are not opposed to it. They don't like it, but they see it as a neces-^ sary part of our defense structure and greatly preferable to drafting untrained men into an army that could be hurled unprepared into war. Many who preferred not to be quoted said they were In favor of it. Only three of all those questioned were actuall opposed. Two were men. These are the answers we got: W. H. Brunner, attorney: "I am in favor of it. My reasons are twofold. First—In . the world as it is constituted today, we require trained reserves. We have a small nucleus of highly trained military men in regular service; we need the trained reserves for k.p. in the background. , "Second—It would be an excelr lent thing for a population notoriously undisciplined, and this is particularly true of our young people who lack family discipline. Military training would have a tendency to develop a sense of responsibility which is woefully lacking. I wish that when I got out of college I had had two years of military training before -I went into practise." Dr. L. K. Van Allen, physician: Yes, I am. opposed to it. I think it would regiment our young people and teach them to jump at the voice of authority. It would spoil the initiative on the part of our American soldiers which has been the thing that won our wars." Mrs, Ernest Shoemake, homem'aker: "I think they need it." Robert Jardine, insurance man: I favor it rather than the draft. It isn't typical o£ America to regiment itself, but in these times it's good idea.
