Word of the shooting reached Sheriff Donohoe the' following morning and with Coroner Taylor the "sheriff left at once, for Sanel valley. From the coroner's inquest it was learned that several months ago Butler had discarded his wife and the woman took up •with Palmer, an-, other horse trader, •who claims to have hired her to cook for his outfit. Last Saturday the two outfits met on the Hopland-Lakeport road and camped together. Butler arid his wife appeared to be friendly and she requested him to go to Cloverdale and get their three children, which he did. Monday had two months' pay due them, and they were anxious.

HeBlth'Program First Mrs. Theresa Ray, high school health nurse^ thought the health program outlined by Dr. Sox should come first as a logical beginning to the complete health and hospital fet-)ip. This was also the opinion of other, speakers. Dr. Sox' was firi^i in his recommendation that the health program should not be placed under hospital administration. If both are I administered under one head it "must be by a competent, well- trained public health expert, or the health end of It will take an awful beating." Haehl was inclined toward a complete separation of the two departments. Others who want immediate action pointed out that 44 covvnties iiX.thp. State now have health pro- Masonife Gen. Mqnciger E. T.

Mendocino county doctors are not fully educated to^ reporting cases of com- municabie diseases, according to Dr. So.x, who believes the county should provide 35 to 40 beds to take care of its tuberculosis patients, many of whom are not hospitalized nor treated and are infecting others. The school department, according to Burnam Ktpfyford, is ready to guarantee $5000 of its nursing funds to a new county health department and possibly the salary of one inspector and a dental hygienist. He believes some school districts may be 'vyUling tp combine their nursing position?. with the county set-up. ' 'What the cities -will do was problematical.

Some counties dp not charge their cities for such services, he said, on the theory that city people pay county taxes, but inasmuch as the cities of Mendo- cinp county have 32.7 per cent of the populaUpn and pay only 20 per cent of tlie county taxes, he recommends they pay a nominal sum to equalize this. Mayor George Myland pf Point Arena said he felt his city woyld agree to' the annual payment of $185. Willits would be asked for $775; Fort Bragg, $1600. Mayor Forrest Hughes and Councilman R. F. Clarice gave no intimation of their attitude other than to say they will bring the matter before the council for decision. Hughest ,asked that the board submit a detailed contract for their consideration.. Dr. Sox, analyzing the $58,000 county health plan in the morning session, said it would provide, for the first year, a trained public health officer, a director of health nursing, four public health nurses. FRANCIS BABY IS NAMED The infant daughter of Mr. and lyirs. Lawrence Francis, born .in Santa. Rosa May 8, has been nained Carol Sue. She has a sister Luella Lou three and a half years old. The family home is on Cunningham avenue in Ukiah. Dr. Elmer Noali was attending physician and the new baby weighed eight pounds and one-haU oiince. clerks — at $36,300 for salaries. Also $4000 for office expense, $15,000 for operation^ and maintenance including travel funds and ' approximately $2500 for office equipment. No rental or building cost is included. Location Discussed Where to open the initial health office, if approved, yas discussed with a suggestion by Harader of a building to be vacant on South State street. A state trained public health officer could be provided at once, Dr. Sox said. Laboratory work could be contracted for with the state. He feels the county should budget at once in order to qualify for the $26,864 which would be given by the state and $4000 e^ail- able in federal aid. This would require the county to budget $27,864 to make up' the balance and withoutsgchool, city or other funds its would raise the tax rate about one sanitary inspector and two 9 cents, he said. WILLITS, May 8.—Despite nil the recent publicity illegal hunting has received, another tried his luck. His aim was good, as a doe and a spike buck were found in his possession. The tine handed down' by Judge Fired Foorid^^as just as good, $600.

There are such things as fences to protect icrbps,. and last but definitely not least, the fish and game division has , already expressed fear that if hunting fever keeps spreading, there just •won't be enough game to meet the quota.

The trio were in the Swope car when Anita went oyer the bank and down approximately 125 fee 'i into a ravine, ti'r.iing over several times. There is no need iter diagnosing the condition of the 1940 Oldsmobile. It is a total loss. The accident occurred May 7, about five miles' north of Willits [on Oil Well hill. On May 3 the Canteen Council met for the first time with Jack Cress, chairman, and his newly elected officers. Approaching the new fiscal year cautiously, the council held but a short business meeting. Topics of public interest included the decision to re-name 'the canteen and lift restrictions ori age limits. The police department booked man a day. On May 5 It was David R. Long, whose business venture ended in a petty theft charge. Bill Binkley made it on May 6 on the unglamourous charge of drunkenness and paid the" $15 fine levied by Police Judge Allan Safcry. Darold Ramsey signed in and out as he was traveling in the custody of the sheriff on a warrant^^ for grand iheft. That was on May 7. Nfext? With Andy's still closed the Willits Lions chose Irvine Lodge as their den last Thursday. With tail ti^ister, Fred Hamilton, busy until" late they - appointed Bill Ford to tv?ist for the evening. And twist he did. Some members are still rubbing their wallets. Moral: NeVer let a Scotchman control the zippers of your money bog. Visitors for the meeting included Ed Durr, Petalurina, and' Robert A. Kennedy. Bob surprised the 20 p'reberit'with; his; ability to tickle th'e' ivories sO that they really laughed and' sang. Joining the ivoiries in song were all those present. The Lions have decided to meet at Southworth's Inn at their next meeting. After an ' extensive advertising campaign, that almost convinced the populace of Wililts that here was a good place to dine, Andy's is closed. First a civil suit and now pn internal dispute. The last arguriient is, did i«s Gobies violate his contract by the black jack game: recently closed by the sheriff? 'What some citizens are in a quandary about is, does the place have to be closed to settle such , a dispute, and, as Wilbur Anderson' and faihily were on the premises at the time of the games,' and they were held more than once; why. wait until now to settle it, aiter the sheriff did such an able job. Doe meat may come high, but some motorist is due for free hairiburger when he runs into the black' and white heifer someone turns loose daily on the old highway. Perhaps they are not aware that they are not only violating a law but' also endangering the lives of anyone traveling that way and not aware that the' roadsides are a cow pasture. Seen in Ukiah on May 5th were the following people: Mrs. Birdie Lyon, who was down on business With' A.'L. Lawson at the wheel of that big, blue Kaiser. Val Peterson was' down on business with August Vagt accompanying him. The fifth Willitsite down was Mrs. Minnie Alexander. Some were out of Willits and others visited in or returned to Willits. Mrs. Lucy Reynolds has arrived at the Howard Memorial Hospital. This is good news to her friends who have missed her during her confinement in Sen Francisco. Although she is still on the critical list, it is nice to know you are among friends. Back with her is a private nurse. Representing Unple Sam's great gobs is Richard Haselwer(Jt, home on leave. How's the sailing, Dick? Mr. and Mrs. Edward M. Loosley, formerly of Willits, were visiting friends this week. They have ma (Je their home in Sonoma the past iJribriths.

Congratulations, wheresoever you are honeymooning. May 5 Willits Lodge, F.&A.M. held their stated meeting preceded by a chicken pot pie dinner of savory detail. The ladies of the Eastern Star take honors for the culinary proficiency in satisfying the brothers and giving the gathering that extra incentive to make it an evening to look forward to. May 7 found the fraternity conferring a second degree. Inasmuch as the refreshments were left to the discretion of the males, they settled for ice cream and cookies for a bracer. ' Home temporarily is the son of Mrs. Rose Steele, W. D. Dawson. He has been in Arabia for the past three years and plans to return soon. Enroute home by plane and rail, Douglas stopped off to see London, Edinburgli and New York. After that, Willits must seem small. Miss Gladys Cave was off to Fortuna to her family the weekend past. The Young Women's Christian Guild of the Methodist church held a combined business and Mother's Day meeting Thursday. For the occasion Mr. Lamer arranged for some eighth graders to do a catchy 1 -act play. Diane Gra- Surppise Is Qccqsion For Pin Presentation It was a complete surprise to Mrs. Fred F._ (Gladys) Stevens when the officers and chairmen whp served un^er her as president of the . Parent-Teflchers association arrived at her River Road home Saturday evening to place a corsage on ,her stioulder and present her with the past-president's pin. The presentation was made during a mock P.-T.A. meeting where every conceivable crisis arose ,tb confound the officers. A debate was also held on •whether or not children 'shpuld be permitted to chew bubble gum. It was decided that parents should .not" outlaw this diversion until they knew the joys of bubble gumming themselves, and fourteen dignified ladies were required to demonstrate. The results would have delighted any observing moppet for they managed to achieve only two very small bubbles. Mrs. Nolan Hunt, past secretary, presented the pin. Refreshments were taken out by the gi oup and included cake and coffee. Games were led by' Mrs. Frnnk Allen. Others there were Mesdames John Woodworth, Jr., Joseph Turula, Frank Crane, Alice Evans, Al Fraga, W. H. Brunner, Jack Simpson, Frank Zeek, N. B. Thurston, Ernest Lauteren and Robert Frohn.

A guitar and hanjo duet rounded out the entertainment. Others participating included Mrs. Peter R^cagno, who did a couple of readings, Hulda Kister read the Scripture and Rev. Haggerty led in prayer. Guests of honor were the mothers of members who received beautiful carnation corsages. Apple blossoms decorated the room while on the tea table were lilacs, silver tea services and plenty of good food. Sandwich loaves, cupcakes, tea and coffee were served to the 65 who attended. With Mother's Day behind us, a little girl who was listening to her dad's rather broad hints of what he wanted for Father's Day just couldnt' see why she should spend money on pop. Her question to her mother was, "If the Lord gives us our daily bread, and Santa Claus brings the Christmas presents, and the stork brings the babies, then what's the use of having dady around, let alone spend money on him."

For—incredible s^s it seems —high frequency waves fade so rapidly in the cable that all the sun's energy, if it could be funneled into the pipes, would not carry baif-v/ay across the country. Millions of new working dollar*, needed to extend and improve service, must come—not from telephone bills —but from thousands of people who put their savings to -wotk in the telRpfaone business. To attract these working dollars, we must pay a reasonable •mount for their use. 'We can do this only if we sell our services at fair and adequate prices. ,3.
