The Snohomish County Heedth Department reminds parents that. now is a good time to have chil- dre~ examined by the family physician Any physi- cal or dental defects may thus be corrected before school be- gins. Immunizatiens a~ad booster doses against the communicable diseases shbuld also be attende~. to at this time,: before the child is exposed to a larger number of potential childhobd diseases through his associatioff w i t h others at school._ Physical and dental examina- tions are also recommended for grade eight pupils, as being the time when strenuous studies and competitive sports are being started. Getting these examina- tions and immuizations done now before ~chool starts will also en- able the family physician, before the September rush is on. to give more time and attention to this important phase of child health. Let's Send Ju. t;eq Hunter asks" return to Olympia Judge Rebert. T. Hunter of the Stat~ Supreme Court was. iD Su]: tap "recently campaigning f,or election to his present Position No. 3 on the high court where he has served since October of las~ y~ear.-Prior to that time, Judge I~nter was Superior Court Judge of Grant and Douglas Counties for 11 years. He was also a pioneer lawyer in the pibneer commtmity of Grand Coulee for a period of 11 years, in the early days of the construction of the Grand Coulee Dam.. Judge Hunter states tlmt dur- ing that time he had a wide field of experience in handling the pro- blares of the new business ven- tures of .his clients, in assisting. the workfngmefi to secure their claims f~r injuries on the job, and assisting the widows of fatally. inj*ured workmen in obtaining their pensions. 'This exve.rience was further broadened by 'his )3o- sition as city attorney for a .per- iod of ten years in handlin~g the innumerable legal questions eon- froating~ a new city. Judge Hunter states this back- ground has assisted him in hav- ing a close human understanding .match last Sunday: Low gross for the day was Vince Nelson with a 66, and by tll e looks of some of the other soores, I think it also took first for low net. I~w gross for a fellow from Leavenworth ended in a tie be- tween George Saunders and Lew- is Griffin, both posting a 74. As I sit here taking the scores from the match and rioting the scores of, some of our .boys, I'd say they' need a little more golf and not so much fishing. What do you think, Rell? It is a free coun- try, so fish all you want, Earl, you just had a bed day. What am I talking about, .you beat me! I see that/Jay Leedom turned in a very good second nine after getting off to a bad stdrt. Mos.t of our boys, like Jim Hart, Don West, Orv Easterly, Ralph Heller, Waldo Hayes and a few more played their usual Steady game. Gerry IKirwan took his opponent, but'I don't think Gerry's golf was up to its best. Not having playe.d much golf with Shine Peters, I don't know whether to say he played good or ngt, but he won points for us and teat is what counts. The figures I,have for the match are Monroe 26, Leaven- worth 15%. I guess this d6es it for this week, and yaost of all the other persons "like mys~H left the golf course Sunday with a very swell dinner stored awa,v, com- pliments of' the management. "Fore."

The violations contributing to last week's traffic fatalities were: falling asleep while driving, speed, and failure to yield .the' right of of the problems of his fellow n-kan. ,way.
