CLEAN UP THIS WEEK
HOOD RIVER IN-ALABAMA?
Washington, 0. C, Vendor Now Fam
ous for His Ignorance
(Kemmerer (Wyo.) Camera)
As an evidence of the reputation
the West is training in the East, we
call to mind an Incident noted in
Washington, I). C., of where a cus
tomer stepped up to a fruit vender
and asked for some of his best apples.
The tendered fruit was all that was
desired, and the question was put to
the vender as to what was the name
of the apple arid where It came from.
The vender replied Chat It was a
"Hood River." and he thought It came
frCm Alabama. In the west there is
never any fiifstion as to where those
famous apples come from and it is
nice to know that the apples most
prized in the East are the product of
Oregon, a Western state.
CAMAS PRAIRIE HAY LANDS

Tixmt to Begin Collecting Rubbish
All citizens interested are remind
ed that this is clean up week and that
the teams will begin to collect rub
bish Thursday morning. Nothing will
be hauled that can be burned and all
rubbish should be placed in boxes or
sacks and convenient to the street
that the drivers may see it as they
pass along. They will charge a nomi
nal fee, much less than If hauled
away upon individual orders. It is
hoped that every place needing it will
be cleaned up by the end of the week
and not necessitate' the city taking
steps to have it cleaned.
JUNIORS ENTERTAIN SENIORS
According to their annual custom,
the Junior Class of the High School
entertained the Seniors very pleas
antly at the Commercial Club Friday

decorated with streamers of maroon

There was also a profusion of flow
ers. A jolly evening was spent with
games, the fea'ure of the entertain
ment being the track meet between
Cornell, Princeton and Yale, which
aroused much amusement. Profiles
of the Senior Class and faculty were
then guessed. Refreshments were
served and dancing was enjoyed. The
general committee responsible for the
success of the evening included the
following: Will McGuire, Allan Har
ris, Matthew Miller, Emma Gibbons,
Tillie Davidson and De Forrest Gould.
Sub-committees worked under the di
