Rod & Gun Club Talk Pollution, Hold Election Most recent activities of the Washington State Sportsmen's Coun- cil, the status of the incompleted Sunset Falls fis ladder, area pollution problems and an election of officers made the agenda of the Monroe Rod & Gun club's quarterly meeting here last Monday. For the fourth consecutive year J. D. Warren, Monroe area contrac- tor, was named president. State Says: Merchants, Bank Stuck With .Warrant Loss Financial relief for Monroe businessmen caught with Town of Monroe forged warrants apparent- ly will not be forthcoming. State Attorney General John J. O'Con- nell's office agreed with towu at- torney Joseph H. Smith that the town has no duty or authority to help sustain losses. In reply to a letter written by Smith, Robert F. Hauth, assistant state attorney general, said: "We certainly agree, with your conclusion that the Town has no dy or ,authority to pay ,any money to the various persons who seek to be indemnified on account of their payment on forged warrants." Smith read the letter into the re- cord at a town council meeting here :last week. Originally, the First Nationat Bank of Everett was stuck with some $7,500 in fraudulent varrants drawn and negotiated by a form- er town clerk. The bank in turn of- fered to share the loss with prior endorsers (primarily local business- men) on ,a fifty-fifty basis. The businessmen then .asked town offi- dais to ease their respective bur- dens. Thus it is. that the only apparent rdlif open to businessmen and-or the banking institution is 'a civil action against the Town of Monroe. However, from what has gone be- fore, this appears to be outside the realm, of possibility. Two Inmates Leave WSR Two Washington Sta Reforma tory  escaped from the in- stitution's dairy crearnery sout of town last Tuesday. They were identified ,as Kenneth Larson, 21, serving a term from Grays" Harbor County for eeond degree burglary, and Barney CarT, 21, convc'te in Tacon of auto theft.

Warren, retxrting on the Decem- ber 10-11 meeting of the state sportsmen's group, indicated" the pasa, ge of four masures, .and introduced "water l0lion facts" aired t the gMhering. At State Meet The first order of :business at the state meeting was a resection ds- crediting the Gunter-McKee report for the cottal of suite waste liquor pollion, and balBng upon the State PoUution Control Oomn'As- zion to "completely reject" the G u n t r e-McKee standards. The sports .council also urged the com- mission to adapt the State Depart- ment of Fisheries ,standards as of Febrnar 4, 1958. The "water pollution facts" point- ed out th,at about 86 per cent of state pollution is industrial, ,and of that, vver 50 per cent of state in- dtmtriat po.lution is by sulfite pulp mfls. In an effort to hold onto state l,ands or recreation, .ame h n d fisheries purposes, state sportsmen agreed to sponsor a bill toward that td in the 1961 legislature. In other resolutions, state sports- men wextt on record as sa0poffdng the Saff0e Departme of Fisheries fish farm pro, .and called for n increase in the Columbia River stee,lhead fishery via a joint effort of the game depadments of Idaho, Washington and Oregon. Local Sportsmen Seek In separate actions, Mom'oe area sportsmen elected, to ea upon Io cal legisors with regard, o the Sunset Falls fish ladder, initiative No. 25, ,and 'the Washington State tteikamtory sewage disposal prob- lem. Spertsen were  agreement that the fish }adder, reportedly out one4hird com1eted at about one-half nllion dollar expendi- ture, l finished by the State De- partment of Fisheries, the organ Which planned and began construc- tion of the ladder. Sportsmen reed that the fsh- cries depot had deV6opod a 2argo slmon run to the uppe reaches of the 'Skykomish River and that the tra by tank truck from the partially com- pleted ladder around and ,above tim falls was no longer ,adequate. In other words, they contended, the fisheries department lted developed a. respectable sano run and is now ..allowing it to deteriate/vr want of ,a mpleted ader. State iegisators--the group pans contacts with 9th district 9eator Wiltiam Gissberg and representa- tives Robert Bernethy and Hem'y Backstrom--will ,also be asked to urge expedition of art attorney gen- eral ruling on initiative No. 25. The initiative, peaining to the peren- nial dm construction problem, was pproved by voters last No- verab ,or 8, .and its constitutianalRy is now being questioned. Furthermm, lcal L  plan to ask tle 9th legislative team to work toward appropri*ation of" monies for alleviation of the WSR sewage problem. The only other poution subject making the club's agenda was cagnizance Of the problem being created by th Town of Sultan. Su.l- tan, sportsren observed, is the only community along the Skyko- mish not moving toward  remedy. Maude Gray Clark Aux.
