Some may say it would be ,hard, in arty case, to see Cheney's leading bass fisherman a,t Chapman anymore than he been since 1923, when he first fished the lake. tie got off to a .good retirement last weekend, laning a mess of large mouth bass rangiag in weight from 3 to 4% petards. .. Retired June 23 Dr. Willi,am R. Bernard of- ficaHy called it quits June 23 44 years and 8 months from the time he first came to Ohe- ney. His office,s at 424 lsl St., are now being remodeled and a new demist will assume his practice later this saammer. Dr. Bernsrd first ca,me to Eastern Wahingtan in 1919 to visit his sick mother in Spo- kane. He panred to stay with her six months and return to Oregon, but he never left. What's more, he says with fi- n;a]ity, he isn't going to leave Cheney at all, as he will spend lfis retirement here . . . fish- ing (naturally) and puttering around in his yard. Old Days Recalled Dr. Be.rn, ard came to Che- .ey on the advice of a man at .the Patterson Dental Supply Co., who told him Cheney had had one dentist for the prior three HIS a,me was Dr. Wells, who practiced dentistry where the Beehive Restaurant is new located. When he arrived here on Q'2,5,;.1919, Cheney's popu- latmn was a lit'tle over 1,000 and the Normal School had an enrollment of less than 600. The city's growing popula- to has rtew reaehed about 3,800 'and the "Normal School" h,a.s become lastern Washing- ton State College, with over 2,400 regular students. Only A Few Left When he came to C,heney oaaly tlree oher businesses .still operating under the same names were in business. They were the Owl Pharmacy, Che- hey Baketry and C. A. Ratcliffe Co. Only the late 'lffe business, thioh M, ark R'acliffe myw op- erates, is sUll,u'Rcler the same family of ownership. (The Che- hey Free Press was in publica- ti,on at ths tme also.) The Owl arid the bakery have since changed ownefMp. Th makes ttatcliffe, Dr. Bernard sur- nhsed, the oldest (lheney busi- nessman, in terms of years of service, st active. Dr. Bernmxi's reasons for staying in, Cheney are simple. He says, I 0hose Cheney be. cause of the fvietline sincerity of en up and dow Main street.., and the fact that fishing and hunt-i ing is my avovaion." He Planted First Bass Dr. Be.nrd's "vcation," as he cas it, 'has been respon- sible for making wearby Cp- man Lake one of the few lakes around where .a fiserr,n c still feel the thr'U of a large mouth bass bitting a plug on a m'conli night. He recalls prancing the first !argo mouth 'has at Chapman about 1925 or '26." He caught them at Badger Lake and hnsferred them aive .to man in milk cans. lie made en original plant of 24 i. Sig Ogden, a retired rilra wrk. or, ssisted m wth the plant. "Now they catch them out there up to 9 and 1O Imtmds," Dr. Bernard boasted, with no little pride. Old Fish Landed The oldest bass caught at the lake to h knowledge is one caught two years ago by Dean Swegle, a long-time fishing pa,rner. wegle caught an 8 ptmder wMch was verified by fi biologists as .being 14- yarsold. Fish age is eaheeked by body .rings, much the same as tree age is determined by rings. Dr. Bernard says the tars. est bass he ever c.ught at Chepnmn was a 7 pounder "not counting its .head," which was cut off before the prize was wighed. Dr. Bernard graduated from North Pacific DentM College [(now the Universi, ty of Oregon I Dental College) in Portland. tie is a no,tire of Everett. He came to Ohoney utmost immediately after finisMng college to be with his awg mher. Cheney Civic Leader During the next 45 years he also became a civic leader and a well-knewn .sotsman throughout the tte. He was on the City Council for 10 years, during which time he worked constantly for a new swimming pool in Che- ney. "I'm happy now to see one o my dreams come true," ,he .says of the city's new pool, which pened this summer. He kas served on various Chamber of Commerce com- mittees, and lst April ,he was given ,a life membership, the first one ever ,awarded by the Cheney organization, lie is also past commander of Amer- learn Legion Post No. 72. He became a member of the Spokane County Sportsman A:ss'n in 1920 was a director f. my  and an two oc- casmrm servea as president. Voted Most Outstanding In 1930 he became a mem- ber of the Spolmne Cotmty game commissien and in 1933 lie became a member of the Washington State  Coun- ci] res(xlution committee. In 1935-36 amd 1936-37 he was i President of that 0rtion and was voted the 0utstand- ing Sportsma:rtskip Award of !195"7" far the State of Wsh- ington. He was apgoined to the Washington State Game Com- mission in 1951 and served 6% yeaxs--the last two as chair- man. Between 1937 and 1950 he was member of the com- mission's resolution cornnttee. His greatest pride in t o.rgaizon's aceomptisJaments was abolis/Rrtg fish traps in 1935. one of the greatest conser- vation moves in the ,history of the W Stae Spo.s Couv-il, It gave the sttlmort a chance to return to the rivers and spawn." Steelhead Game Fish Ma "k. steehhead trout a game f wa another out- st amem dar- ng nis eure of m, he recalled. Prior to e action, stee]ffmad were c'odered a "food fish," and are still so considered in Oregtm. Dr. Ber- nard was on the committee which steered passage of the legislation into law. Dr. and Mrs. Bernard raised four children in Ceney, and all went through Oheney pub- lie schools and EWSC, each of them graduating at ,the col- e. " hey re Dr. William R.

A Friendly City w Tlou. gh his travel armmd as mngton as a sports leader, Dr. lrrmrd has seen most of the cities in the state, "But I always came hock to Chenoy more satisfied thn ever at it's a city of friend- ly people," Dr. Bernard ex- plains. . "I wou.ld like to express my sincere alpreciation for .the wonaerful friends which iKrs. .mad I have made the community over the yea. Our plans m'e to make Cheney our home," Dr. Berrtard concluded. Cheney folks will agree tMs is good news. The city (or his beloved Chapman Lake) just wouldn't seem the same with- out "Dec" Bernard around,
