• Snoqualmie Elementary lost its mascot and oldest student recently when a dog named Deuce was put to sleep. Deuce attended school regularly for the past 11 years, even after his owners, the Moe boys, had graduated. Deuce was out walking the picket line with the teachers and was around for the first few days of school this year.

• Innovative plans for two parks in North Bend were unveiled last week by two consultants before the city council. The council, after studying plans for Railroad Park and Gardiner-Weeks Park, approved both conceptual plans.

• Transportation to the Tacoma football game and some other fall sports road games will have to be accomplished without Snoqualmie Valley School District 410 funds. That was the decision Thursday by the school board, which agreed to stay with its decision made last spring during a series of budget cuts.

• The Carnation Milk Farms made a clean sweep with the 13 Holstein-Fresian cattle exhibited at the Utah State Fair in Salt Lake City last week, disproving that old adage ‘unlucky 13.’

• The Vincent Community Club will hold a special meeting this Saturday night. All members, friends and interested parties are urged to attend this important meeting, being held to discuss ways and means to finance a new roof for the clubhouse. The present roof is in very bad condition.

• Five huge turkeys disappeared like snow before a noon day sun, at the Fall City church dinner last Friday night. If you were a latecomer, and missed the big turkey feature, you’ll have a chance to rectify the matter at the Carnation Ladies Aid Dinner, Oct. 9, if you aren’t late again.

• Off for a 60-day sea voyage, seven young bulls from the Carnation Milk Farm embarked Thursday of last week on the S.S. Saparoea of the Silver-Java Pacific Line, bound for Calcutta, India. They are to join the military dairies, Lahore cantonment, under the jurisdiction of the British government, to be followed next month by eight of their sisters. This illustrates the worldwide demand for animals of this famous herd to improve the dairy stock of many lands.

• To show how the name of Snoqualmie Falls is spreading, a very beautiful cover on the September issue of the W.O.W., published at Denver, depicts a striking picture of the mighty cataract in color. The Falls will receive much publicity from this source.
