Sumas News, April 3, 1925
Before we complain about the budget restraints of the Sumas Police Department, let review the issues that were at hand in 1925. Sumas Deputy Gaston didn't even have a car in which to assist him in enforcing the laws. It must have been a sad sight to see the poor Deputy at the side of the road watching the speeding traffic and unable to do anything about it. It would be interesting to know what kind of a car finally was provided for Sumas law enforcement.
