Smoke Signals (Newspaper) - October 21, 1953, Pinedale, Wyoming ABOUT US Historically Uncle Sam comes around on the first of October asking searching questions of his second class per- mittees, i. e., those of us who are allowed to use the mails under special conditions for the dispens- ing of public information and en- tertainment. This is a reasonable request on the part of Uncle and we are glad to tell under oath before a notary poblic, that the owners, editors, business man- agers, etc., of Smoke Signals are Mr. and Mrs. Sid Reynolds Smoke Signals weekly circula- tion as of October 1st was 450 copies. (It is 452 now, and we are adding new subscribers as rapidly as we can in order to reach 500 by Dec. 9th, when we will be "le- Your Sublette County Newsmagazine has subscribers as far away as Tokyo, Japan, and Geneva, Switzerland; and we do not know where the ones go to the boys in the service who are addressed with APO numbers. We would like to take this op- portunity to thank our many sub- scribers in Sublette County for their enthusiastic support and generally favorable comment. This time last year there was a crying some local pub- lication that could see over its back yard fence in the town of Pinedale. We felt that there was a lot going on in Sublette Co. that needed public attention besides the sad, sad state of garbage col- lection in Pinedale; the wicked- ness of bars that stayed open on Sunday during cutter races; the tightfistedness of County Medical Boards who did not care to sub- sidize an uninterested doctor, etc. So came Smoke Signals, with emphasis, we hope, on the basis of our economy: the cattle ranch- es; on our unique and fascinat- ing wild game and wildernesfc mountains; and on the people who raise the game and travel the mountain trails. Now, if we may presume to comment, our distinguished col- league in the newspaper business has pulled up his socks, hired some darn good help, taken an interest in something besides re- form, and is putting out a good paper. Hurray, say we. In the meantime we have learn- ed a lot' about Sublette County; met slathers of nice people we had only heard of before, and just barely scratched the surface of the interesting things we want to tell everybody about. We feel that there is plenty of room for three publications in the County: one for Pinedale, one for Big Pi- ney, and one to cover County affairs in more or less detail from PINEDALE, WYOMING WEDNESDAY, OCT. 21, 1953 Volume I, Number 47 Price: Ten Cents Oct. 15, opening day of the hunting season in this area found many hunters in the field. Wave after wave oi cars, trucks and jeeps pdured through Pinedale, headed north for the two days previous to the opening date. Many of the "outside" hunters bring their own horses these days. One estimate is that two hundred head of horses went up Green River into the hunting camps. A little storm helped the hunt- ing and many hunters were able to get their game the first two days of the season. Bill Bayer got his moose, a nice medium sized bull, neai Half .Moon, As of fast Monday 838 hunters had checked-in through, the_ sta- tion at Cora. Many strange and very often true tales will come out ,of the hunting field, concerning the ex- periences of the Nimrods. The most interesting tale so far is. of Dr. J. G. Wanner of Rock Springs and Pinedale, seeing a white wolf on Big Flat Top mountain. Dr. Wanner had secluded himself on the edge of a little park with a good view of the entire area to await whatever might come along in the nature of elk or deer. He had not waited long until a buck (Continued on Back Page) SIGHS OF THE The Idaho Falls Sales Ring, al- ways considerate of its patrons, has placed a giant box of aspirin at the pay-off window where the boys go for their beef cheques. The market for Wednesday of last week was as follows: 3248 cattle were received at the I. F. auction. Commercial cows bro't (o> utility cows, cutter cows, canners, bulls, calves good feeder steers, stock heifers, feeding cows stock steer calves, stock heifer cvs. dairy type cvs. N. B. Walt Lozier claims the "low" for this year. He sold a small calf for flat recently. Wh'o has done any worse? Bondurant to Boulder to La- Barge, for EVERYBODY. We'd like to have 43 new sub- scriptions by December 9th, and most of the old ones will need renewing about the same time. Can do? INTERIM COMMITTEE Norman Barlow, State Senator from Sublette County and chair- man of the Interim Committee which met in Laramie recently, was cornered" after in Big Piney last Thursday and asked for comment on the com- mittee meeting. He said that the I. C. had taken no action, as it is purely-ah investigative and" advis- ory group. Three sub-committee reports were heard. The Educa- tion group had held five meetings thruout the State, and was chiefly concerned with the distribution of school funds. The Highways group was supplemented by representa- tives from the Wyo. Truckers' As- soc'n, the railroads, and the. State HighwaiJQept. _, They considered the use of the highways by differ- ent groups and their responsibil- ity to the public with an eye to equitable distribution of costs through taxes. The sub-committee on taxation is paying special at- tention to the numbers of exemp- tions granted by the State. The I. C. met at the University of Wyoming. Ten members were present, the one absentee being Rep. Armstrong of Lander, who was unable to attend because of illness in his family. at Gfy Sate Two More Sales H. B. Sager, auctioneer, of Bozeman, will be in action in this area again on Oct. 30 in Kern- merer and on October 31 in Jack- son. The Kemmerer sale is strict- ly bulls, while the one in Jack- son includes all classes of pure- bred Herefords. TRAIL HERD Mr. and Mrs. Walt Lozier of Cora took off last Frichy on their annual trail drive around the mountains to Lander for the win- ter. They left the Box R ranch on upper Willow Creek that morn- ing, and settled for the night in Charlie Bayer's meadows near Pinedale. In two more moves they landed at the Gilligan place at Boulder where they have hay for the cows and will stay about ten days. They have a sheep camp wagon and a jeep truck for living quar- ters and highway mobility. The Test of the "crew" is Phil Lozier, Walt's nephew. The trip takes about 14 days, travelling 'time, along the range close to the mountains, across the top on the new highway, and down the other side.
