Mrs. W. S. Paige, of Everett, who has been a lover of birds since her childhood, gave color- ful word pictures and descrip- tions of the habits, characteris- tics and calls of a great variety of our northwest birds, telling of many of her own unusual ex- periences and observations. This enlightening .talk, the presence of the youthful enthus- iasts and the pleasure of inspect- ing the 30 well-designed houses on display at the Arlington Cash Feed Stord window, awakened the club members to the value as well as the pleasure and beauty of birds in our gardens. When one considers the enor- mous number of aphids, bugs and worms that one pair of ,birds will rustle in feeding a family of young beggars and themselves, a nice home for these songsters is one of the finest assets we can add to our gardens. It will pay dividends and be a joy to watch. The Winners Checks .of $1.00 each were presented by Mrs. John Wrage, chairman, to the winners as fol- lows: Curtis Holm, Tim Chad- Hey and George Groendyke in the8-to- 10-year group; James Ream, Gary Norman and Floyd Langdon, Jr., in the 11- to 13- year group. The two houses judged "Most Suitable for the Bird for Which It Was Built" belong to Curtis Holm and James Ream, and will With a Chinook wind raising ed when the dike along thQ the temperature to 55 degrees, and accompanied by a continu- ous downpour throughout the Stillaguamish valley during Thursday night and Friday, the Stillaguamish river rose to a height of 19.22 ft. by 7 p.m. last Friday, resulting in one of the worst floods experienced in the valley in many years. Roads were closed north, west and east of Arlington, as the water rose over pavements. On Highway 1A, north of the Huller bridge, water covered the road; one bent on the north approach to the bridge was damaged. This was repaired by Sunday, the state crew getting on the job quickly. Meantime vehicles were not permitted over the structure. West of town on the Silvana road the pavement was inundat. N. P. Branch Line Suffers Damage The Northern Pacific line from Arlington to Darrington suffered considerable damage as a result of the recent flood, a slip-out occurring at mile post 4. There were also two washouts at Hal- terman spur, where 100 ft. of road bed went out on one end of the bridge there and 150 at the other end. Another washout oc- curred at Fortson. The repair crew started work Tuesday making necessary re- pairs to the damaged spots Sev- eral carloads of rock have at. rived on siding here for the fills, and it is expected that the line will be open to traffic in about a week. : About twenty men. were em- I ployed on the train and work crews. south bank of the river wma breached near the Jack Kletlm place On the Darrington, or North Fork road, water went across tl~ pavement just east of the IAn- coln bridge, but the deepest wa- ter on this road was at the east end of the Cicero bridge, and just above the Aldridge place, where a swift current pour~ down the highway. Try to Save Dike County trucks and Arlington Sand & Gravel Co. trucks put up a losing battle on the dike west of Arlington until late Friday night, in an endeavor to keep the rising water from crossh~ the dike. It finally broke over, however, and began eroding fast that the dump trucks Term unable to overcome it. A breach about 80 yards across finally opened up, sweeping the road gravel across the fields a~! pouring a flood of water through the fields. The breach in this dike seemed to alleviate the pressure some- what on the north side of the river, "where most of the real- dents were marooned, for the water dropped there a few inch- es during Friday night. Friday afternoon Paul Van Horn of the Arlington Fire De. partment, and J. Harvey, highway patrolman, manned a boat and succeeded in movix~ Mrs. Oscar Huffman from her home to the Groendyke place.
