" ,. "The women grew nervous in this glare of the limelisht of publicityybut under Mrs. Crane's direction the arrangements pro gressed. It was Colonel War ing's New York system that was to be introduced. The "white wings" were uniformed and all equipped with new brooms and little carts. Then, at -the 11th hour, the women who had been assigned in squads of two to act as inspectors of the work, one af ter another rang Rev. Mrs. Crane's front-door hell. With one accord they began : to- make excuses. There were sick babies and unexpected guests, and ,the ever-useful-husband-who - ref us es- to-ailo wit. "So that the league that really cleaned up the streets was most ly Mrs. Crane. At first appalled by the prospect, she neverthe less stood to her guns when all but one of her-faithful lieuten ants had fled. The yellow cara eras got her, but at the end of three months she had her reward The city adopted the system, for she had done for $5 what had previously cost $8.39 a day, and she had proven that sweeping by hand was better than the mach ine sweeping that sent clouds of dust and disease into the houses. To complete this demonstration of neatness in municipal house keeping methods, the league pur chased and placed on the street corners galvanized-iron cans for the reception of waste paper and refuse, And they enlisted the efforts' of the ch ildren to keep the streets free from litter by or ganizing in the schools junior civic improvement leagues, with a badge declaring 'I will help' " WOMEN IN CIVIC LIFE. The recent good work done by the Ladies' Auxiliary and Civic ; Improvement Society in inaug and successfully carrying out here the project of cleaning up the city, is what the women are doing all over the country and as "an illustration of J the good they are accomplishing, the fol lowing is given of just one city where '.their work was devoted to .street cleaning: "Kalamazoo, Mich., is a city of only about 30,000 inhabitants, yet in many respects it has at tained to such, correct civic de portmeut . as indicates careful bringing up by hand by the im provement league that Rev. Car oline Bartlett Crane organized It is vital needs of the heart and lives of the community reached, "The league looked on the streets of Kalamazoo and saw that they were not hygienically swept. How" should men know how to sweep, anywav? The men of the city government said that they were cleaning the streets as the streets always had been cleaned, and it must be aright..- But the women said, No, that they would show them , " The City Council was asked to give over to the league six blocks of the main street for a period Of three months, together with the appropriation expended on this strip of pavement. - .: "The plan was agreed to. Then it became noised abroad that the f womeri of Kalamazoo were going to conduct this demonstration of right street cleaning; . And the yellowest journal- of Chicago, the" near-by metropolis, began tQ focus the trained machinerv of Eastern Oregon Champion. George Jett, of. Baker City, with his oration, "The Worship of God,'- won the oratorical championship of Eastern Oreg on at Pendleton Roy Rowland, last night was second," while Agnes Milne, of Elgin, was third. The other schools with their representatives and their rank in accordance with the contest were as follows. The Dalles, Marion D river ; Prin eville, Ra n- dolf D. Ketchum; Cove, Glenn Roberts; Union, Madeline Hill; Ontario, Walmath Curry; Wasco Mae Smith. The judges on composition placed Miss Hill, of Union, first but otherwise the ranking on composition was the same as the general result. The winner of the first three places were all well matched, the re sult being in doubt until announcement Two Varsity Games Next Saturday . Next Saturday .morning at ten o'clock and in the afternoon at 2:30 the U. of O. baseball team" will meet the OAC nine on the . local field. As to who will win is a matter of specula tion for the nines- are about evenly: matched as shown by the games played at Eugene two weeks ago. OAC took one and Oregon one game. In each case the hits of tlae college were scat tered while-those of the Univer sity werebuuched and our men were playing on a strange field. If Keene is in good form and none of the others are out of the contest Coach Moore's aggrega tion will, considering also that they play on the home diamond give " Dad" Kelley.s men the hardest rub they have had " this year.
