As they ere go- ing up the front walk to the Smith's house, Mrs. Jones tripped over a garden hose left lying across the sidewalk ,by the Smiths. In the resulting gall, she was severely injured. Mrs. Jones sued the Smiths claiming that they were negligent in leaving a garden hose across the walk. "They invited us to their house," she said. "We were their guests, and they had a duty lo see that the premises were safe 'for our visit." Is Mrs. Jones correct? Can the Smiths .be held responsible for the injuries sustained by Mrs. Jones on their front walk? No, said the supreme court. As a general rule there is no liability on the part of the host for injury to a person coming on the prem- ises as a .guest unless there is something on the premises which is a concealed danger in the na- ture of a trap. The day in question was a Sat- urday afternoon in July and the Smiths had been doing some or- dinm'y chores about the yard. The court pointed out that one might well e.pect to encounter a hose across a sidewalk under such circumstances. In any event, even if the hose acroos the sidewalk be considered ,a danger, the ,Smiths would have no duty to give warn- ing of a condition which should 'be obvious to a guest. Mrs. Jones lost the case. SALMON EGG HOLDER Western shermen know how effective slmon eggs an "be for trout and steelhead- and wlmt a nuisance they are to store and carry. Try stittrg a tennis ball.

From the southeast, bass fish- ing is reported very good in the Snake, although hot weather has discouraged a lot of the mid-day anglers.

Good 'fly 'fishing is available now in the Yakima, Tieton, Na- ehes, Rattlesnake and mountain streams of central Washington, according to all reports.

New Law Makes WWI USGLI Insurance Conversion Possible World War 1 veterans 65 or old- e:- holding USGI term insurance policies may now convert to a lowmcost form of insurance as lhe result of a bill signed inS law by President: Kennedy on July 25. John B. Kirseh. mana.,.er of the Seattle Veterans Administra- tion Regional Office, said the new plan of insurance, called "Special Endowment at Age 96", primari- ly provides death .protection only. The premium, which z,,mains level throughout the life of the policy, is lower than the premium for the term policy which is be- ing exchanged. Kirseh warned that not aii hold- ers of USGLI term policies should make the change. Those disabled should keep their original term policies which provide a monthly -income in the event of total per- manent disability while at the same lime waiving the insurance premium. At time of .exchange a ptovi - sion for premium waiver in ca of total permanent disability may be added to the new policy at an extra premium. It will not be necessary for World War 1 term poliey-holders 1o write or telephone the Veter- ans Aztministration regarding the new plan of insurance. The VA will notify all eligible policFhotd- ers and will send 1hem ull in- fermation concerning conversion of present policies, Kitsch said. Sell with Monlto, Want Ad AMARANTH... RUMMAGE SALE !
