Help Given In Clums':ng a Vocation A few days ago all the girls were sent irectly to class, the first period, while the boys were asked to remain in the assembly. "What have we done now?" seem- ed to be the general question among the boys. Their minds were soon re- lieved, however. Mr. Rhode came is, almost immediately, and asked all the boys to gather i'n the front right- hand cornet' of the assembly. Mr. Rhode explained the difficul- ties of choosing a vocation, and told us how hard it had been for him to choose what he wante4 to be. In or- der to help us in choosing our voca- tions, Mr. Rhode and Mr. Wertz have secured some blanks from the Y. M. C. A. for us to fill out. These blanks have some hundred questions listed, concerning interests and abili- ti, es along vocational lines. After a student has conscientiously filled out one of these, it is possible to ad- ise him, at least to a certain ex- tent, concerning the vocation for which he is best fitted. The test is helpful not only to up- per classmen, but is of inestimable value i'n aiding freshmen and.. sopho- mores in their choice.

The Plymouth-Kennewick road is reported good; the Patterson- Presser road passable; the Aiderdale- Mabton rough and muddy; and the Roosevelt-Bickleton not advisable. The Pacific Highway is blocked south of Grant's Pass, Oregon, due to rain. A viaduct on the Pacific Highway a mile south of Castle Rock is being replanked, and there will be one-way traffi at this point for about two weeks. The road around the north end of Lake Stevens is closed for bridge re- pairs and will remain closed until about April 15th. Motorists are a&ed to drive care- fully between Ellensburg and Yaki- ma as small slides may occur after rains, and at the present time the road is muddy and rough. The Ellensburg-Vantage road which has been closed is again open but is quite slippery. The Vantage ferry is in operation from dayligbt until 8 p. m. On the National Park Highway the road is in good condition to Long- mire, but chains are advisable.

Fisher's Chick Starter Milk Mash, in my judgment i the best feed broug'ht forth in the history of poultry feeds. And right along side of it is Fisherts Developing Mash, which should take the place of Fisher's Chick Starter Mash after the chicks are three weeks old and be fed to them until they are six months of age. Fisher's Chick Feed containing pure wholesome grains in scientifically balanced form, should be fed the chicks untilthey are four or five weeks old, the gradvally changed (depending upon the development of the chicks) to Fisher's Growing Feed.

DIVORCE CASE DISMISSED The divorce action of William Pontbrient against Nina Pontbrient, both of Monroe, was dismissed wit prejudice by Judge Alston in the superior court on Monday. POSTAL RATES The Senate recently voted a gen- eral revision of the postal rates i adkiing a series of amendments to th House bill proposing a reductio from 2 cents to 1 cent in the rate on postal cards. In the amendments several reductions were made on second, third and fourth class mail matter. The measure passed wi'thout a record vote and now goes to con- ference. It was estimated by Chair- man Moses of the postal committ that these reduetiens would mean loss of about $30,000,000 annually i revenue.
