In our quarter of a century plus as your e & p we have always designated a special Christmas greeting to the men, and now, the women of our armed forces who in war and peace often spend the loneliest of lonely holi- days in strange and foreign lands. This year we do like- wise, but in our corner it has a particularly special meaning: our son will not be home for Christmas. If it is to your liking the note may apply to your son or daughter as well. Dear Son: Mother is well, but she will shed more than one tear this Christmas Eve of 1976 much as thousands of other mothers shall and have for two centuries. The old man, as so many others, will do so deep inside. Godspeed and Merry Christmas--Duty, Honor and Country and make damn sure your men feast well! Fawn and Took are in good health and magnificent to shoot over. Thanks to Cedric and Bob and the many friendly folks of the Winchester we recently experienced a bountiful harvest of duck and pheasant, but not so with the chukker--the old man's/egs are going. Jesse is making noises about Round Lake where Alex blessed you with your first mallard hunt. Remember the rattler in Moon Canyon and Butch and Bob--wow! And the fishing at Lake Fontel and Spectacle--those were great outings. Harry in again with his weekly report on steelheading and David rather stunned at the O.K. Sundries late coffee session. As usual, Bud is lamenting the postal load that always comes in the heart of the hunting season. (Continued from page 1) Christmas Eve Mass.

Doris [Miskey] sends her love as do so many others. What is there to say to you, son, this time of the year, or to any other serviceman or woman ? Perhaps this: "Only the dead know the end of war. "--Plato. Booze Board, "'Pursue with the greatest of vigor, regardless of politicians drunkened with power, detestable, self- State Patrol perpetuating bureaucrats, that right of peace so richly deserved by the common man, the soldier at arms.'" --Howard William Voland. Dad To the Editor: Re: Comments, Week of Nov. 1, 1976 In respect to the State Game Department and the pheasant planting at "Hi Bridge". Fortunately, for all the sportsmen and sportswomen, the agents release the birds in the fields and woods, and off the highway. This is to allow all the nimrod an equal oppor- tunity. My dog and 1 have bagged out three times and singled eight times. We spent no more than three hours at any one outing. We could have probably had one more if 1 didn't take time out to write this rebuttal. Old "Red" my dog and 1 talked your situation over. We came up with a suggestion that may help you sir. Get a good dog, a good gun and, and a good deal off the road. We promise that you will see your quarry. Happy hunting, Pat Ryder by Sen. Frank Woody D-39th Dist. In 1961, the United States deeded the land now known as Caseadia to the State of Washington. Since then, these facilities have been used for juvenile care, treatment and diagnosis purposes. At the present time, Cascadia is the only facility available to the state to diagnose and provide maximum security residency for severe juvenile delinquency cases. Originally, the land was owned by the Puyallup Indian Tribe. In 1940, the tribe sold it to the United States for $228,524. After the property was deeded from the United States to the State of Washington, the state expended almost $2 million to construct the juvenile center. On OCt. 23, 1976, some members of the Puyallup Indian Tribe and some non-Indian sympathizers seized the facili- ties for one week. Some Indians were armed and at least $60,000 damage was done to state cars, radios and other property. To end the seizure, the Department of Social and Health Services signed an agreement that the department would not press charges for criminal destruction of state property and would seek to return the facilities to the United States and, ultimately, to the Puyallup Tribe. The Senate Ways and Means Committee was concerned that the other 3.2 million people in the state of Washington were being ignored. A special subcommittee was formed to investigate and a major hearing took place Nov. 30, 1976 before Sen. (Slim) Rasmussen, chairman, and Sens. (Frank) Woody, (August) Mardesich and (Charles) Newschwander. Ramona Bennett, tribal council member and leader of the Puyallup tribe, testified that the purpose of the seizure was to force the State of Washington and the United States to give the property back to the Puyallup tribe and to force the state to change its policies and treatment of juvenile delinquents. Ask Tavs Help The representatives from the federal government testified that their lawyers were going to look into the legality of the 1961 deed from the United States to the State of Washington. On Dec. 3, 1976, the federal government dropped the next show, or should I say, boot. By letter from the Department of Interior and the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, the federal government "ruled" that the property is owned by the United States and not the State of Washington. The deed was prepared by federal government officials who knew the state was going to spend almost $2 million to construct a juvenile center and now, responsing to an armed seizure by some members of the Puyallup tribe, the federal government is taking the property back. 1 hope the land that the Monroe Reformatory is on was not "given" to the state by the United States. The State Liquor Control Board and the Washington State Patrol again are soli- citing cooperation of on- premises liquor licensees to help reduce traffic accidents during the holiday season. In a letter to all licensees authorized to sell liquor for consumption on the premi- ses, the Board and the WSP urged licensees to cooperate on a state-wide safe driving program. Licensees were asked to promote safe driving, not only during the Christmas holidays but all year round, by: Not over-serving alcoholic beverages on the premises, keeping lights high enough to observe the sobriety of patrons, seeing that patrons who should not drive are escorted home safely. Suggesting a cup of coffee, something to eat or some fresh air to a person who evidently has had enough to drink is also recommended. The Board added, "Liquor Board enforcement officers and Washington State Patrol troopers realize that proper operation of licensed premi- ses plays an important part in any safe driving program. "Attend to customers who ' might leave your premises and become involved in an accident," licensees were urged, "help to make this a traffic-death-free holiday, and a traffic-death-free 1977."
