Victory has returned to Yuma High.
In the beautifully illustrated Heaven Down Under (Oct. 7), Robert F. Jones writes of the imported Russian River rainbows with which the famous New Zealand North Island fishery was started. These fish came from Russian River winter steelhead eggs shipped to the Auckland Acclimatization Society in 1883 from a hatchery on the Russian River run by the Great Western Railway Company.
We are trying our best to save the remnants of the once-famous Russian River steelhead runs here but, obviously, the fish are thriving better in New Zealand than in their native waters. This should tell you something about the dismal steelhead conservation record in California.

RIGHT THERE IN CENTRAL CITY
Regarding SCORECARD'S (Oct. 7) mention of Central City, Colo. and Lew Cady, I should like to set the record straight. Having just returned from Denver and America's greatest sporting event—the 4th Annual Convention of the Beer Can Collectors of America, of which Mr. Cady was also a co-organizer—I must assure you that Mr. Cady has never said anything nervously. And the stalwart postmaster of Central City, Max Robb, tells me it is impossible that a woman judge would be hit by a half-full can of beer. In Central City, only half-empty cans of beer are allowed.
