The shooting took place a little beyond Comptche, at Petersen's dance hall. It appears that Bowles was at the dance and using vile and profane language in the hall in the hearing of ladies and DeSpain and Skiffington tried to get him desist and finally got him to leave the hall. When Bowles got outside he drew his revolver and ordered Skiilington to throw up his hands. At that moment DeSpain attempted to prevent trouble and Bowles turned suddenly and shot De Spain dead and then shot Skiffington througli the lung, wounding him fatally. Bowles then returned to Comptche where he was employed as a blacksmith and remained until Constables Connolly and Dwindle arrived and he was taken to Mendocino to await his prelimiri- ary hearing. De Spain was ia highly respected, industrious young man and peaceful. He had been away to school studying law, but was on vacation earning money with which to complete his education. Skiffington was also a peaceful man. Bowles lived 'at Point Arena a number of years before going to the Comptche vicinity. L.

Memorial Day Visitors With Memorial Day we have almost had Old Home Week. Many families welcomed relatives and though they were somewhat changed by the years, and the children had grown so that we were constantly reminded of how their mothers or fathers looked at that age, it seemed but yesterday that they went outside to the big world. Round valley, a refuge of peace, welcomed them all. In the afternoon of Memorial Day, many gathered at the "Silent City On the Hill," with memories and flowers, to listen to the beautiful service conducted by the American Legion. On the hill by the water tower stood the bugler jind when the blood-red poppies had been placed on each soldier's grave, sounded taps, and the service was over. To the reservation on Memorial Day, came a party from the far away Indian hamlet of Sinunasho on Warm Springs Reservation, Oregon, where not long ago Milton Peters, one of the Round valley boys, met his death. He was brought home to sleep the long sleep, where he was born. His pin of his rifle blew out and hit him. Denies Decree To **Unmarried" Pair In a judgment rendered this week Superior Judge Lilbum Gibson denied a decree of divorce in the action brought last October by Charlotte Roberts against Rex Roberts, and in the cross-complaint filed by the husband. Judge Gibson denied the decree on the ground that at the time of trial the parties were no longer husband and wife because of a Nevada divorce obtained by Mrs. Roberts on January 1, 1948. After filing her compaint here Mrs. Roberts went to Nevada and became a resident of that state and sued for and obtained a divorce. The Roberts' three children were placed-in the joint custody of the parents, each to have physical custody of them during certain months of the year, and during the time they are with their mother the father is required to pay $75 per month for their maintenance.
