SALVO ~ A New Game of SKILL
SALVO! Here is a two-handed indoor game which is on a par with checkers and chess, in that the most mentally alert player wins.
The only requisites to play “Salvo” are two pencils and some scrap paper. Each player draws two fairly big squares (three by three inches or larger) and rules these off into 100 smaller squares, ten on a side.
To designate the vertical and the horizontal rows of squares, the vertical rows are indicated with letters at the top from A to J, and the horizontal rows from 1 to 10 at the left side.

Portland’s Zoo Railway
HAPPY tots and smiling adults ride around the new $3,859,000 Portland, Ore., zoo on America’s latest railway—the Portland Zoo Railroad Co. The rocket-styled, Diesel-powered Zooliner hauls three gleaming Skydome coaches and a luxurious club car which tote 99 adults or 132 kids. The pike is headed by famed Pacific Northwest author and historian, Stewart H. Holbrook, Chairman of the Board, and John H. Jones, President. All aboard!
