Publisher HOWARD VOLAND ................................................................. Editor Sportsmen Will Want To Watch... Rumbles out of Olympia this week indicate the state expendi- tures council is delving into certain duplications of services in state gov- ernment, including the possible consolidation of the State Department of Game and the State Department of Fisheries Sportmen--who through the purchase of hunting and fishing licenses exclusively finance the game department--will probably have plenty to say if lawmakers consider such a move. Apparently the expenditures council is thinking consolidation will be in order by virtue that both departments maintain their own patrols and regulate the salmon fishery in its respective fields; and both oper- ate hatcheries programs. Although nothing yet is official, sportsmen are sure to voice serious objections to the diversion of "their monies" to fields other than in the realm of sports fishing and hunting, and might well pay heed to the expenditures council's thinking. it t most completely el iminated the [$RSDr harrassment of witnesses.

This fear of being a. witness is understandable since there was a time when abuse of witnesses was permitted. But. the abuse of wit- nesses has been outlawed for many years. At one time in England, however, it was customary to subject a wit- nesses' whole life to investigation in an attempt to discredit him by going into old follies, misdeeds or marital embarr.assments. A witness then truly had reason to fear going on the witness stand. Modern court procedure has al- LEGAL NOTICES NOTICE OF DISSOLUTION OF PARTNERSHIP We,  F. WAGNER and DONALD R.

IN THE SUPERIOR COURT OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON N AND FOR TKE COUNTY OF SNOHOMISH No. 69732 SUMMONS BY PUBLICATION LAURA JEAN VERDON, Plaintiff VS.

Of course, the witness may be asked questions to test his memory and observation power, because many people are inaccurate, even when well intentioned. Also, any fact which might cause a witness to be prejudiced is subject to in- quiry, such as relationship to the parties to the suit, or the existence of a feud or hatred for a party to the suit. If a witness is intending to lie on the witness stand, he may weil be apprehensive about testifyi[tg, but a person who intends to tell only the truth has nothing to fear in going on the witness stand. The courts cannot function without im- partial courts. Therefore every per- son should consider it his or her duty to serve as a witness in court actions whenever called upon to do SO. Trucker's Compensation Barney, a truck driver, was in- volved in an accident between his truck and an automobile while he was on his job. Four years previ- ously, Barney had had some mental illness, but modern medi- cation had seemed to cure him and he had been getting ong fine in his job with no signs of his old trouble. Actually, Barney did not cause the accident, but the driver of the other car was a loud-mouthed, blustery individual who stormed and shouted and abused Barney in an effort to cover up his own fault. Furthermore, the other driver's wife was "a fishwifeA.ype person who made a lot of very unpleasant noise and by the time the police arrived, Barney was getting some recurrence of his old trouble. Additional confusion in trying to get the facts straight with the of. ficer in the face of the other driv- er's and his wife's abuse brought back Barney's old difficulties. Al- though he had suffered no physi- cal injuries, it was necessary for him to go back to the mental hos- pital. His wife made a claim for workmen's compensation because of his illness. Do you think she is entitled to workmen's compensa- tion because of her husband's men- tal illness? In these circumstances, Barney's mental illness would be considered an industrial injury, for which he and his wife would be entitled to workmen's compensation. The fact that his trouble was mental rather than physical would not bar his right to compensation. (This column is written to in- form, not advise. Facts may change the application of the law.) Game Dept. Shorts Five-hundred "Hungarian part- ridge eggs were recently shipped from Nuremberg, Germany to the Spokane Game Farm, the Depart- ment of Game announced today. The eggs were secured through Dr. Don Fanlkner of the Washing- ton Game Bird Club, and purchase was arranged by Sgt. Bab Holcomb who is stationed in Germany. The eggs, taken from wild nests, will ,be hatched and the yotmg birds reared  the polmne farm s part of the exotic game bird program of the department. The Olympic Games, first held in 776 B.C. were discontinued in 394 A.D. and not revived until 1896. This country has had 4,000,000 forest fires in the last 20 years, according to American Forest Pro- ducts Industries, Inc. U. S. manufacturing exports in 1959 were $1 biRion less than in 1956, while imports were $2.6 bil- lion greater. OLYMPIA ROUND-UP After blowing away the chaff of many inconsequential charges that are being hurled back ,and forth between the two opposing candi- dates for governor, it would seem to us that .the choice is between two basic philosophies. Governor Rosellini feels spending is justified to expand services in the fields of public institutions, public assist- ,ance and all programs will touch the lives of large segments of the population, even if it means higher taxes. He calls it the basic Demo- cratic concept of a better life for the people. His opponent, Lloyd Andrews, believes in holding spending with- in fl:e framework of income, put- ting the brakes 0n deficit financing and bonding, and making cuts where necessary to go on a cash basis. Levy of New Taxes Questionable It is difficult at. this point to come down to specific cases on whether Gov. Rosellini, if reelect- ed: would be able to carry on his programs without the levy of new taxes because it has not been de- termined at this time what will be needed in the big spending fields of institutional improvement and public assistance. And Andrews has not outlined where his cuts would be made in all categories, although he has said that costs could be brought down in public assistance by instituting relative responsibility and recovery from estates of persons on .the old age assistance rolls. He also has indi- cated that if necessary the ex- penses of kindergartens and adult education could be eliminated to provide funds needed for salary increases for teachers and more emphasis on scientific education at the junior college and college level. Expenditures Being Examined We think .there are services which are duplicating, and which over the years have grown out of hand in state government where definite euts could be made if the next administration is serious running for any partisan office for two years after his tenure of of. fice expires. It could not .affect his opponent, Lloyd J. Andrews, the non-partisan superintendent, since the campaign will be over two months before the legislature meets. State Workmen's Compensation How hazardous is state employ- ment? The State Department of Labor and Industries announces that on Oct. 25 it will consider a proposal 'hat .all state employees be made eligible for state work- men's compensation. The proposal involves adopting ,a rule that. state employees are engaged in extra- hazardous employment. We can think of hazardous moments for state workers. For instance when at 5 p.m. on working days, several thousand cars try to get out of the statehouse grounds at the same time, each carrying its executive, its file clerk or stenographer at the end of a busy and trying day. Stae Convention Bureau The State Tourist. Advisory Com. mittee has endorsed a plan for creation of a state convention bur- eau. The plan would require ap- proval of communities throughout the state. If approved, it would operate within the state tourist division. The job would be to en- courage organizations throughout the nation to hold their conventions in Washington. Record September Employment The State Employment Secur- ity Department says mid-Septem- ber employment set .an all time record for the month. Nearly 1,500,- 000 persons held jobs in the state. The record was set despite an August to September decline in employment of about 3,600 per- sons. A 12,000 person drop in farm employment in September was part]y offset by the hiring of 8,400 additional workers in non-agricul- DEATH TAKES NO HOLIDAY Fatigue and high speed caused the death of this driver. The car telescoped itself against the concrete bridge rail and burned completely, nearly cremating the victim. Death was instantaneous at impact rural industries. On the other side of the picture, total unemployment in the sbate was 56,600 persons, which was 3,500 below August. Grand Jury Investigations A new procedure for grand jury investigations of elective officials has been approved by the State Legislative Council. It calls for special prosecutors to be appoint- ed by court administrators. These prosecutors would conduct the grand jury investigations. The state post. of court administrator was created by the 1957 legislator. He is appointed and works under the jurisdiction of the state supreme court. ! An internship program for grad- uate dentists has been established at Rainier State School at Buck- ley, it is announced by Garrett a-- Heyns, state director of institu- -" tions esai ra ates r a proved dental schools will be given an opportunity for further training by doing work for inmates of the sehcol for retarded persons. He said the program would provide valuable dental service for the in- mates as well as advanced train- ing for postgraduate dental stu- PURDY & KERR dents. Indians Urged to Cease Net Fishing Gov. Rosellini has urged Puyal- lup Indians to aid his save-the- salmon campaign. The chief exe- cutive appealed to the Indians to cease net fishing in the Puyallup as a means of increasing the num- ber of salmon that will reach up- stream spawning grounds. CHAPEL FUNERAL DIRECTORS AMBULANCE SERVICE Men. PY 4..3281--Carn. KID Members of PURPLE CROSS PLAN =- Sell with Monitor Want Ads about reducing spending outgo. We hope the Expenditures Advis- ory Council now at work will come up with some suggestions along this trend. The Expenditures Coun- cil has been quietly digging into state spending and services, but will not come up with any report until after the election. We can see the logic in this .as a report which would .pint out where cuts could be made could be a disrup- tive influence in the election cam- paign. And right now there is less than three weeks remaining until the vote which will tell us whether we are to go forward for another four years with Rosellini, or are to give Andrews the wheel to steer e ship of state. We have no information as to what the Expenditures Council will report. But we do not see how this body can avoid some recom- mendations .as to outlay in the field of public ,assistance. And if it 'has ,the courage, as an example ot what might be discussed, there is the fact that we have a state de- partment of fisheries dealing with salmon, and  state department of game dealing .with fish, both per- forming duplicating services which might well be consolidated. It would be a brave group which would suggest this, however, as both departments have built em- pires with many vocal supporters, and to touch either would bring on a donnybrook which might be too much for politically conscious legislators. State's Bonded Indebtedness As for the controversial issue in the present campaign of the state's bonded indebtedness, this stands as of now .at $353,240,000 in round figures. This is the unpaid balance on $457390,000 in bonds which have been issued since 1949 for schools, highways, bonuses for veterans, state buildings and the Century 21 World Fair. It is costing $33,480,000 a year in principal and interest to repay this money borrowed through the bond issues. It comes off the top of money collected from taxes which reduces ,the amount vail- able fpr other services to that ex- tent. Andrews wants to halt this trend of borrowing to get back to a cash basis. He has estimated it may take ten years to get the state out of debt. Campaign Gags Rumors in the present guberna- torial campaign are a dime a dozen. One that received consider- able circulation last week was that Gov. RoseUini had ordered the State Patrol to discontinue use of radar to catch speeders or the re- mainder of the campaign period. It is not true. It probably arose from the fact that the State Ptroi found it necessary to call in its 25 radar sets for an overhaul, due to the fact that they have been handled by patrolmen inexperienc- ed in their use, ,and they have been hooked up_wrong in some cases, cables have been damaged and the equipment given a buffeting. The radar is going oat again after re- pair, and a strict sqperviion of its use is being instituted. One of the recent gags of the campaign was the mmouncement of Gov. Resellini that he will ask the next legislature to enact a law which would prevent the superin- tendent of public instruction from IN to play 'HOLLER DOLLAR' the NOVEL NEW Fun Game HOLLER DOLLAR RULES 1.
