The Improved Order of Red
Men having Tribes at Scappoose,
Warren, Goble and Yanklon is a
factor in the development of CoU
umbia County as well as its social
life. The Yankton Tribe is the
youngest of the four, having been
organized in May 1909 with about
20 charter members. Regular
councils have been held twice a
month at the Grange Hall with a
steady inerease in the membership
until now their numbers is Some
thing over 60. Last May the four-year-old
Tribe decided that having
out grown its swaddling clothes .it
was time to strike out and build a
home of its own, accordingly plans
were laid and the work of raising
funds began. A corner lot was
obtained and some lumber before
the "Fourth". Many friends who
celebrated that day with the Yank
ton Red Men will long remember
the neat pavilion erected by the
voluntary work of the brothers of
Tillicum Tribe for their accomoda
tion and the pleasant day and eve
ning spent with them. Early in
October the work of building a
commodious hall was begun, U. W
Clark was obtained as master work
man and one of the finest buildings
owned and occupied by any Order
in the County now stands on the
corner of St Helens and Kappler
Streets, Tillicum Tribe has reason
to be proud of its new home, which
was occupied for the first time Jan
uary 10th 1914. The lodge room
dining hall and ante rooms are
tastefully finished in Oregon Fir

considers the rtal dedication of
their new building. A more for

when it is hoped to have speakers
from other tribes and all friends of
the order will be invited.
NOW IS THE
TO SEND IN YOUR
This week began the second half
of the term and few promotions
were made in the lower grades.
The debate last Friday ni;ht be
tween St. Helens on the affirma
tive and Astoria on the negative,
although the arguments on each
side were very convincing, was de
cided in favor of the negative. Mr.
Hattan and Mr. Richardson made
very strong and pointed arguments
and we all appreciate their efforts.
The basket ball team won in a
very fast and snappy game from
St. John's high school on .last Sat
urday night, running up a score of
30-17. The beys did very fine team
work. The girls team lost to the
St. Johns' girls, 9-2. They were at
a disadvantage on account of size
and experience, and also have been
playing boys' rules part of the time
wh'ch accounts for so many fouls
Wednesday of each week has been
decided upon as Parents' Day. The
teachers are glad to have the pa
rents visit any day but as there has
been very little visiting, and the
probable reason is that it is just
postponed from time to time,
definite time has been tixed. it is
hoped that if the parents will come
a few times on this day, Wedne
day, that they will take more in
terest in the school work and then
will come other days. A parents
interest in school is shown by their
visits, so if you don't visit, the
teachers think you care little
whether your boys and girls ad
vance or not. The children show
the same interest in school that
their parents do.
The school orchestra is progress
ing rapidly and aie showing a
marked interest in their work.
In no other school work do the
seventh and eighth boys show
more earnest effort than they do in
their manual training. The girls
take the same enthusiastic interest
in their sewing aod are doing ex
cellent work. They seem to thor
oughly understand that these are
two occupations that will benefit
them and be at their command
through life, by either of which
they may be enabled to earn a live
lihood if necessary.
Don't forget parents day.
Christian Bro's College, of Port
land, will meet the high school
boys on the local floor Saturday
evening. Come and boost the home
team. A very interesting and fast
game is certain. The Christian
Rro'a have the fastest team in
Portland of the high school class.
