There are also "wave lifts" which are caused by the wind hitting mountain ridges and creating air ripples. Gliders can fide the ripples, usually downwind of the mountains and experience little danger of flying into the mountains. In "ridge lifts," the wind comes from the side of the mountains and the gliders ride along the mountains in the updraft. This lift is safe if the glider is piloted away from the mountain and not into it. The longest record for gliding until just recently was one thousand miles flown in the Allegheniy Mountains. This record was recently beat by a flight in New Zealand. Gliders work in cooperation with a tow plane. The tow plane pulls the glider up into the air to the desired altitude; when the glider is in a lift, the pilot releases the tow rope and flies on his own. In take-offs and landings, the glider must go against the wind, while in flight, any direction is oper- ational. The tow plane for Ireson last week was a 172 Cesna with 180 horse power piloted by Jock Dalton of Dallas. Dalton has been mechanic and pilot at the Sheridan airport for almost five years. If the idea of flying in a plane without an engine is unnerving, consider that man was gliding previous to pow- ered flying. Also, as Dalton points out, "the Wrights did all their pioneering with gliders." ill Willamina track team sent their best to the state AA meet and, despite the tough com- petition from other schools, Terry Alameida and Troy Hooker were able to place in the events. Terry placed sixth and set a new record of 2:24 in the 800. Troy Hooker set a new record inthe 3000 event. Other participating Willa- mina students were Sally Judd in the shot put, Rhonda Pond in the I00 and 200, Kelly Swift in the 200 and 400, Scott Pond olse p rong After a landmark year in 1978, Boise Cascade Corpor- ation sees bright market prospects for its paper and building materials businesses again this year. In an address Tuesday morning at the company's annual shareholders meeting, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer John B. Fery said 1979 should be "a very good year for Boise Cascade, despite an unsettled economic outlook for the nation." "Over a five-year period," Fery added, "we are even more confident about the prospects of our businesses." Fery told the shareholders that the company's previously announced plans to invest $2.3 billion, primarily in growth and cost-savings projects, through 1983 reflect Boise Cascade's confidence in its basic businesses. The am- bitious five-year capital pro* gram will focus on specific paper and building materials markets which are expected to be particularly strong. Fery said the company's record 1978 sales of $2.6 billion and earnings c~" $~;A~ per share before extraordinary items ark one measure of major investments made since 1974 to expand and improve its paper and building materials businesses. "Beyond simply increasing our production and distribution capacity," he ad- ded, "we have especially good growth and profit opportuni- ties in the coming years."

In the 400 relay, Kelly Swift, Harry Reider, Brad Bishop and Scott Pond met with some very tough competition from Central which set a new record. The state meet was held at Mount Hood Community College for all AA schools. Sheridan High School sent three boys and three girls to the state meet at Mount Hood Community College on May 26 only to face extremely tough re ic mar statistics which affect housing construction and a steady increase in demand for paper, Fery described the next five years as being characterized by "an operating environment in which Boise Cascade can flourish." Fery said consumers and the nation's business in general face some economic uncer- tainties about the next five years. Among the uncertain- ties he cited were increasing concern about inflation, con- sumer confidence in making major investments such as new home purchases and "the counterproductive aspects of government's increasing reg- ulation of business." In line with a dividend increase announced in February, Boise Cascade to- day declared a regular quar- terly dividend of 37% cents a share on its common stock, payable July 15, 1979, to shareholders of record on June lS. 1979.

Unlike the salmon and steelhead, the shad bothers not to build a nest on the stream bottom. It is a free-spawning fish. That is, it broadcasts its eggs and milt into the water in shallow, slow-moving sections of the river. The spawning act is a splashy, noisy affair on the very surface of the water. But it occurs late in the evening and during darkness when it may be heard but perhaps not easily seen. The freshly fertilized eggs slowly grow in size and settle to the bottom as they absorb water. Here they drift until they incubate in from three to ten days depending on water temperature. The young fish stay in fresh water feeding on insects and crustasceans until fall when they journey to the sea. Here they will grow to adult size feeding primarily on plankton.

The same tackle is effective on south coastal rivers including the Rogue, Umpqua, Coos, Coquille and Millicoma, and in smaller rivers the fly rod also comes into its own. this may often be in fairly shallow sections. They do not like bright sunlight and may tend to be found in deeperTM water during mid-day.
