The Umatilla county food administration calls the attention of householders to the fact that all the cereals classed as substitutes under the new regulations are suitable for mixing into breads, pastry and cakes. In releasing the consumer from the “50-50” rule it expects every housewife to see to it that the full 20 per cent of substitutes purchased with wheat flour is mixed in the family baking, and that no bread, pastry, cake, dumpling or other edible in which wheat flour is used be mixed without the proper one-fifth portion of substitute.

Swimming is Marion Corder’s hobby. This has been the story since she learned to swim in the Sebasticook River in her native Maine. And last week she made a round trip across the Columbia River above McNary. Mrs. Corder, 46, wife of a McNary Dam employee, and mother of two teen-age children, made the round trip in two hours, five minutes. This was her second round-trip swim across the river since 1960. Charlie Kik and his wife, Pat, accompanied the swimmer across the river in their boat house. Mrs. Corder’s husband, Claude, and high school daughter, Claudette, accompanied the Kiks.

Two cats were found stuffed inside mail-collection boxes Thursday in Hermiston. Two carriers found the cats in general mail boxes on Second and West Hermiston Avenue, and Fourth and East Main Street, according to the Hermiston Police Department log. The boxes were located near Wilcox Furniture and Schroth Travel. The cats wandered off after being released from the boxes by the mail carriers, a postal worker said.
