This experimental feeding station is where much of their research took place. Here their test subjects, a herd of wild deer kept in an ad- jacent compound, sampled over 1,000 different concoctions. Not one curbed their appe- tites. Working mostly with rotten fish and plant extracts, the scientists attempted to isolate a chemical agent that would repel the deer without harm- ing them. Finally they found it, a mix- ture of proteins and lipids of a very common substance. Eggs. So now, when it looks like a hungry herd might wipe out a young stand or even stunt its growth, crews armed with garden-type sprayers treat the trees with this egg derivative. The deer then move to older trees where their "pruning" doesn't really do any harm. This way, we may be remov- ing a choice delicacy from the deer's menu. But we're saving a lot of raw material for wood products in the next century. Weyerhaeuser ~ Growing C~ny Monroe outscored Lake Stevens 15-5 in the third quarter of last Thursday's game to win, 48-26. This was Monroe's first victory, against no defeats.

The varsity team followed the JV's to defeat. JV's lost 28-19. It was the first official game to be played in the new gym, which leaked from the roof. A towell was taped to the game floor to take up the water. Four Monroe and three Marysville players fouled out during the game. Still, thd green varsity players led a spirited first quarter, leaving the scored tied 9-9. The second quarter was bogged down under the per- sistent whistle blasts of of- ficials. At half time, Monroe was behind one point, 18-17. The tension of the first quart- er was regained in the third, spreading Marysville's lead, 27-22. If the second quarter was marked by too many calls, the third was marked by not enough. A backcourt viola- tion and several obvious cases of traveling with the ball Were overlooked by of- ficials. The officialing im- proved during the last quart- er, however. Marysville's lead continued to spread during the fourth quarter. Many points were made on foul shots. Jacki Neisinger made two foul shots, bringing the score to 31-27. Then two Marys- ville foul shots made it 33-27. Sue Smith stole the ball from Marysville's half court and brought it down court for a nice layup that bounced back out. Marysville ran it back and put it in, 35-27. Marysville made two foul shots, making the score 37- 27 with 2:10 to go. Kim Creswell got the ball and went for a long one, missed, with 1:58 to go. After two jump balls ended in a foul, Sue Smith again sank both foul shots, bring- ing the score to 37-29. Then she fouled a Marysville play- er who missed her foul shot, but one of her teammates put it in, making the score 39-30. Save Fuel This Winter./ :::!: ~ Cut Flex-O-Glass To Size--- o_m.~ Run.

If you're overweight, you'll have to cut down on your calories intake, but not nec- essarily on the amount of food. Just eat more low-cal- orie foods and shun the grav- ies, creamed dishes, rich desserts, fried entrees and alcoholic drinks. If you are more than 10 pounds overwight, see your doctor before launching a do-it-yourself diet. You are more likely to stick to your diet is you balance and vary your menus, select- ing from the four bread cat- egories of: Milk Group (milk and cheese); Meat Group (beef, veal, lamb, pork, poul- try, eggs and fish); Vege- table-Fruit Group, and Bread Cereal Group. You also need butter, margarine, fats or oils, but in moderation. Exercise while dieting helps tone up the muscles and tis- sues and helps burn stored calories. If you want to go to a salon or gym, go ahead but beware of over-exertion. Or you can exercise at home. Crash diets aren't much use. You can take off pounds, but the diet is usually so bizarre that you cannot stay on it the rest of your life, and those pounds will creep back.
