cessful season considering the fact
that most of the? players had never
soon a game of football prior to this
yoar. They won tile last two games
after hard fought battles and the
tnste of victory has given them add
ed desire to conijnue the sport next
year.' Financially the school has
gained considerable prorit trom me

tice day having resulted in a net
nrofit of over $300 which win grcat-
lv aid school athletics this year and
for the opening part of next year.
The school expects to purchase a
large amount of equipment and
bring out a team next season wnicn
will rank high among those of the
state. Most of the best men this year
will return to school while good play
ers who were not eligible this sea
son will be out for the squad when
training starts next year.
Coach King is now turning nis
attention. to basket ball and with a
rso number of recruits ln prospect
expects to develop a good team of
basket tossers. Roseburg has always
ranked high In this snort and no ex
ception Is expected this yesr. From
arly indications the basket Dan team
t. in he heavy and fast. Several of
lust venr's stars will be back to lend
experience to the team and Roseburg
expects to make a hard fight for the
slate chnniplonshlp.

Fire Department
Frequent fire drlllB are" held at

house, where a well trained depart
ment composed of shop laborers is
maintained. At a fire drill held this

company maintains a light hand reel
and several hundred feet of standard
fire hose for the protection of its
property, and every man knows his
place at the sounding of the fire
jignal given by the whistle on the
roundhouse. With no loss of time
the hose is laid and water is turned
on the assumed blaze. On several
occasions the roundhouse men have
used their apparatus In fighting fires
near the railroad tracks and have ex
tinguished the fires before the local

The company has several wooden
buildings and a great deal or on ana

and a fire could cause a great deal
of damage. The well trained depart
ment, however. Is a big protection,
as there would be little loss of time
