PA FOUR A 550-foot "Space Needle" observation tower topped by a re- volving restaurant is planned as one of the feature attractions of Century 21 Exposition in Seattle. Joseph E. Gandy, president of the 1962 "Space Age World's Fair," said today that private financing for the $2,500,000 structure is being arranged and that, after completion of en.gineering and con- tracts, constructmn might start early next year. The Space Nee- dle will be located just south of the National Guard Armory, on the hi.g.hest g.round of the 74-acre exposmon site. Two high-sp .ee-d passenger elevators" will carry ws- itsrs to the top, or to the inter- mediate platforms at the 100- and 200-foot levels. The obser- vation platform and 200-seat res- taurant, which will make a com- plete revolution each hour, will afford a panoramic view of the lakes, mountains and salt water surrounding Seattle. The reinforc- ed concrete structure is planned as a permanent tourist attraction. The tower was designed by John Graham & Co., Architects-Engi- neers, Seattle and New York. LLOYD J. I ANDREWS Answers Your Questions... B "What have you done as state school superin- tendent to qualify for governor, Mr. Andrews?" n' "I made four prom- ises in 1956. (1) Cut down on school con- struction cost; we saved more than $8 million in my first two years in office. (2) Return to the basics of education; today our curricu- lum guides and courses of study are in every school. (3) Improve the accounting of your school dollars; today, we have a uniform accounting system used in every school district in the state. Finally, I said we must improve the teacher education situation; we now have a requirement that a first.year high school teacher must instruct in the subject for which he was trained. I keep my promises. This is a prime qualification for the office of governor."

Sports Afield A real banner year is in pros- pect for the nation's deer hunters who plan to hunt for America's No. 1 big-game animal. With but few exceptions, state after state reports good-to-excellent prospects for the fall deer seasons, which are becoming more liberal as to length and take of deer. The nation's deer herds have grown from nine-million-plus in 1955 to an expected 12 million deer for the 1960 pre-season totals, states Michael Hudoba, Washington Edi- tor of Sports Afield Magazine. This, despite the fact ,that the estimated annual huntbr take of deer over the past 11 years was a million- plus, and an all-time record of 1,- 789,464 deer were taken in the 1959 season. Actually, the hunter take in 1959 is 3 times the 1900 esti- mated .total of deer in the United States. While the management policies of t.he / state game departments and cooperative deer restoration efforts with sportsmen's support have helped to provide potentials for the deer herds to grow to all- time record numbers, the increased popularity of deer hunting and the larger numbers of deer taken every season have actually helped deer herds according to expert biologi- cal observations. Although more sportsmen are accepting the ex- perienced studies of deer herd managers, there  still many areas where buck-only laws, anti- quated regulation by legislative (instead of game department) rec- ommendations, plague the efforts of big-game authorities to keep herds in balance with food and cover. Too many deer are still starving in crowded ranges. Some estimates state that as many as 42 per cent of the annual deer kill is lost in the bitter winter struggle. Madern biologists ,point out that* it would be better if these animals were taken by the clean kill of a hunter's gun rather than the slow agonizing death of starvation. It is significant that in those states where any-deer seasons pre- vail, the annual herd increase is consistent with bigger deer for the healthy herds. In their respective areas, 16 states claim prospects for the 1960 deer season are excellent, 22 states report conditions as very good, and 12 states say chances of hunter success are good. With few excep- tions state surveys also show a marked increase in their deer pop- ulations. Texas eads with the big. gest herd of 1,950,000 deer. Call. fornia follows with an offering of 1,000,000. Not .only hs the popu- lation increased, but deer are big- ger and herds are healthier. This bigger and better 1960 deer season can only be attributed to sound conservation programming and cooperation from the sports- man and landowner. Failure to retrieve a fallen quail, grouse, pheasant, duck or any oth- er game species simply amounts to plain, unadulterated waste that should be considered unforgivable unless a determined and conscien- tious effort is made to save it, comments Henry P. Davis, "Sport- ing Dogs Editor of Sports Afield Magazine. Each season thousands of hunt- ers, either careless or too lazy to make an honest retrieving effort; cause  ,Toss of several, million dead or wounded ducks .w h i c h would have made a substantial contribution to the family larder if a little well-directed energy was expended. A simr situation ex- ists in the ranks of upland game hunters, probably to a lesser ex- tent. An excellent wy, perhaps the only way to cope with this waste- ul situation is to use, a retriever. His ability to find game will not only enhance your game bag, but will double your pleasure afield. Many pheasant hunters do not use dogs, and thereby miss a large portion of the fun that goes with htmUng. They argue that the wily ringneck will run any pointing dog in time, owing to his running pro- clivities. Admittedly, the pheasant i is a hard bird to handle, but many seasoned or experienced bird dogs `learn to solve that running problem by circling the bird and heading him off before he tkes to the air, often frightening him so badly that the bird will almost have to be booted out of thd cover. Quail are becoming increasingly wary with the passing of each sea- son. Seldom do we find the easy single shooting of bygone days when ra fushed covey would fan out in an open sedgefield to be- come individual and easy marks for crack gunners. Here the re- trieving dog comes into his own and thousands of bobwhite are brought to hand which would never grace a hunter's able were it not for the ability of his dog to scent out and find the dead or wounded game. It is duck hunting, however, that the worth of the retriever is best exemplified. Whether it ,be shoot- ing over open. water or marsh ands from blinds, jump shooting from boats, pass shooting, or sky- busting highflyers in the heavy pin oak flasts of the Southland, a re- triever such as the Chesapeake, Labrador or Golden, or .an Irish or American water spaniel will prove his true worth as an im- portant factor in successful water- fowling. Many of these dogs display an almost uneanny ability to mark birds down, whether it be in woods, water or fields. Quail and pheasant hunters are rpidly recognizing the value of retrievers in upland game shooting, and many of them take these dogs afield, keeping them at heel to relieve their pointing dogs of the retrieving job, thus adding a spectacular touch to this excit- ing sport. Spaniels have long been noted as upland hunting dogs and the work of retrievers in heavy cover las caused them no longer to be considered as novelties in this phase of field sport. So use a retrieving dog this sea- son and derive the full measure of fun rom your hunting season. Not only will you have the satis- faction of knowing you have not ,left any dead birds or cripples in the field to die a lingering death, but you will have conserved your ammuntion, enhanued your game- bag at the least expense to game resources, and gained a large divi- dend of extra and unexpected fun in the bargain. ::.:.::::::::::: " iiJliiiiii:: iiii::::i 'Martin Luther' Film Is Slated Sunday At Congregational Ch.

ACTION IN AGRICULTURE To keep the nation's productivity rising we completed a $5,000,000 chqmical fertilizer plant this year in Washington. This month, in Iowa, we started work on another, costing $22,000,000... the sixth plant in ORTHO's wide-spread agricultural family. DARIGOLD BECAUSE OF AMERICA'S VITALITT... because the facts of growth and progress are before everyone's eyes.., because the restless, creative energies of Americans Have moved our economy into an age of action.., life in 1960 takes on a new exciting dimension. Here are some of the ways Standard is expanding the thriving economic fronts of today into your future. ACTION 1960-1961 This year we're investing about $400,000,000 to find and produce the oil you'll need.., and for new plants and equipment to serve our customers better in an expanding economy. Next year we 'expect to expend a like amount, because the future of a growing America Will demand more and more oil. The best estimates indicate use of motor gasoline in the West, for example, will rise nearly 4% in 1961 over 1960. That $400,000,000 is a practical measure of our confidence in the future. ELECT LLOYD ANDREWS Governor Republican ACTION ON THE HIGHWAYS In 1960o under highway building programs, four billion dollars' worth of new roods will connect the notion wlth its future. As m major supplier of asphalt, Standard helps pave the way at lower cost. For asphalt puts down three smooth miles of highway for the cost of two in other pavements. ACTION IN RESEARCH How far can science and Imagination commercially "stretch" the molecule of oil? into colored plastic highways? Into a new wear-defying fiber for clothing? We're backing our research staff  1400 strong  with $20,000,000 in 1960...to find new ideas and practical answers in this age of action.
