Page 2 THE NEW ERA, SWEET HOME, OREGON Thursday, June 15, Summer Registration At City Park June 20, 21 Registration for Sweet Home's summer recreation program will be held at the city park starting at 2 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, June 20 and 21, Director Guy Oliver announced this week. Children between the ages of 6 and 18 are eligible. Oliver said this year's program will include swimming, baseball and track and field. Three swimming divisions will be offered this year and each will ,be broken up into various age groups. Divisions are begin- ners. intermediate and advanced. Oliver said he also plans to have an adult swimming class, for which registration will .be held at a later date. The 6-18 swimming program, in addition to classes on how to swim. will include water ballet and fancy diving classes and a dolphin .club is to be formed for advanced speed swimmers. Dry land classes will probably get undervay at the end of next week,, Oliver said. ACtual swim- ming will be in the city's tem- porary river pool at the end of 9th avenue until the new pool on the high school grounds is com- pleted. The date for the start of river swimming depends on the height of the water, the weather, water teraperature and construction of floating bridges. Oliver said the nurrber of base- ball teams to be formed will ob- viously depend on the size of the turnout. There is a possibility tlat Sweet Home may enter a state "Pee-wee" league, he point- ed out, and in any event a num- ber of games will 'be scheduled with out-of-town teams. The city recreation director said baseball practice will prob- ably start immediately after regis- tration Tuesday and Wednesday. The track and field program will depend largely on the interest shown, Oliver said. 3 More Uniforms Needed by Junior Legion Ball Team The Sweet Home Junior Legion baseball team is in need of three more uniforms, local Kiwanians were told Wednesday.

If we do not get any further heavy fall of rain all local streams should be in good condition this weekend. Fly fishing is steadily improving with the better catches coming from the upper part of these streams. The steelhead are plaguing the boys and it would seem that a little war had been declared on both sides. Remember those tags for salmon and steel- head. EAST AND PAULINA LAKES --Results again will depend upon the weather. Many good ctches being made. Have a report that some expert spinning fishermen were showing the boys just how easy it was to take large fish on this type of tackle. Single egg fishing should be done just a few inches off the bottom. A good idea is to ,tie on a large sinker and find just where bottom is; then mark your line and by watching your line mark, know just how close to bottom you are fishing. Night crawlers are proving much better than cluster eggs as trolling bait behind large flasher spinners. Orange flatfish are fa- vored with the larger sizes get- ting some good fish.

The land acquired is located on the former army camp building area which is strewn with con- crete foundations, streets, and car pool sites. Because of these obstructions, the land was rated l low in agricultural value, but deemed excellent for game pro- duction. Equipment and 20,000 pheasant chicks were recently transferred to the Adair tract from the Eu- gene Game Farm, which is to be disposed of. The pheasant chicks will ,be reared in a semi-wild state by using the open field pheasant rearing system. The system allows the pheasant chicks to run free in the fields during the day. At night, the young pheasants return to a brood hen in a coop. Released ai Seven Weeks When seven weeks old, the pheasants will be trapped and released in Western Oregon pheasant coverts. Roy Dickinson, superintendent of the Eugene Game Farm, heads the Adair pheasant project. Propagation of game birds is only one of many planned activi- ties for developmental use of the area, according to John McKean, head of game division activities for the game commission. The Adair site will be used as a field laboratory by the Fish and Game department of Oregon State] college. Public recreational values I and wildlife production on the[ area will be stressed. ] Game commission habitat im- I provement crews have already made extensive plantirgs of mul-" tiflora rose to provide food and cover for the valley quail, bob- white, and pheasants which now inhabit the area. &rain crops have also been sown on the tract. The game commission will harvest these crops as feed for its State Game Farm facilities and for winter feeding of game birds during critical periods.
