Henry Herman Runs Boat Without
Carrying Fire Extinguisher.
Henry Herman, a fisherman of
Prosper, Coos County, was fined $2.50
' in United States District Court Friday
by Judge Bean, following Herman's
plea of guilty to a charge of not
having complied with the Federal law
requiring that each motorboat be
- equipped with a fire extinguisher. Her
man pleaded that he had had an ex
tinguisher, but had lost it. "A lost
extinguisher is the same as no ex
tinguisher," said Judge Bean.
The fine was the lowest ever Im
posed by Judge Bean for that partic
ular offense, and next to the lowest
ever imposed by him.

Portland Woman Only Member Llvingi
Same Officers. With One Exception, ,
Have Been Chosen for 10 Years.
The tenth annual reunion of the Bo
zorth family was held at Woodland,
Wash, Thursday. The first reunion was
held at the home of C. C. Bozorth, with
ISO members of the family present, 10
years ago. Since then all the family,
most of whom live In Oregon, Washing
ton and California, have met at Wood
land. There are nearly 300 members.
The officers are: Christopher C.
Bozorth, president; Alfred N. Wills,
vice-president; Milton B. Bozorth, sec
retary-treasurer; John O. Bozorth, his
torian. With the exception of ChriS'
topher C. Bozorth, who died In 1912,
the same officers have been re-elected
from year to year. At the meeting in
1913 Howard C. Bozorth was made
president of the association, and is
still serving.
In 1845 Squire Bozorth, with his
family, came from Missouri to Oregon
with an ox team. Where Portland now
stands there was then only a few
tents and log houses.
Mrs. Emma Caroline (Bozorth)
Thyng, whose home is at 789 M, East
Yamhill street, Portland, Is the only
member of this pioneer family now
living. As she Is unable to attend
regularly the meetings of the associa
tion, it has been the custom for the
last few years for those who find It
Inconvenient to go to Woodland to
meet at her home for a portion of the
day. It was decided at the meeting
to hold the next reunion in Portland
or Vancouver so that "Aunt Caroline"
could attend.
Gift of f-00 Is Made to Bliss Carmen
Swanson to Carry on Study In
University of Oregon.
Following a custom of some seven
years' standing, the Portland branch of
the Association of Collegiate Alumnae
has recently offered a scholarship of
J200, available for study in the Univer
sity of Oregon. This scholarship is
open to any girl in the state who has
been graduated from a high school, and
the award is based on the evidence of
her health, character, ability and the
promise of success in her chosen line
of work. The scholarship for 1914-15
has been awarded to Miss Carmen
Swanson, of Salem. Miss Swanson's
record in the Salem High School has
been admirable, and the committee
making the award believes that the
association will be well represented by
her in the university.
Answering the rollcall of colleges and
universities In the membership list of
the Portland Association of Collegiate
Alumnae are women from Stanford,
Wellesley, Vassar, Smith, Radcllffe,
Barnard, Oberlln, Grinnell, Cornell,
Northwestern, Syracuse, Chicago, Mount
Holyoke, Bryn Mawr, California, Min
nesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa. Ne
braska, Missouri and Kansas. The
founder of the Portland branch was a
Stanford woman Mrs. R. I Donald
and the largest number of representa
tives from any single university comes
from that Institution, with Wellesley
and California second.

legiate Alumnae is awarded as a gift,

and has devoted that time to almost
constant travel.
"Why lacking?" he was queried.
"Oh, I don't mean the entire popula
tion," laughed the man from Iowa,
but I believe that fully one-tnird 01
the residents of your splendid city have
not as much idea of the beauty and
Dosslbilities of the surrounding county
as I have and I've been in Oregon Just
five weeks.
Business Men Questioned.
"At the luncheon I have Just left I
was introduced to a dozen business
men and in conversation I learned that
seven of them did not know that Me
Mlnnvllle was beyond Forest Grove and
Gaston, and one man told me, when 1
spoke of Newberg. that he had passed
through that town on his way to Hills
bo ro.
The -eneral knowledge of Portlanders
regarding that Immense and beautiful
valley of the Tualatin and of the val
leys beyond has been acquired from
occasional glimpses from Council Crest.
If we of the East and the Middle West
had such pleasing environments, I am
sure that we would become bette ac
quainted with them, lour ignorance
is almost criminal.
Why." continued Mr. Strong, "tns
friend with whom. I am visiting has
been in Portland nine years, and while
he has taken trir south on both sides
of the river he never stopped off, and
In solte of his otherwise intelligence
and good fellowship, he is a dub. The
first day I arrived my friends took me
to Council Crest. We saw a string oi
red cars In the distance, and when I
asked the south terminal of the road
neither my friend nor anyone In the
party knew. The next day, being Sun
day, I urged so insistently that quite
a party of us took one of the most in
teresting excursion riaes It nas ever
been my good fortune to enjoy.
Loop Trip Is Made.
We went by way of Beaverton,
Hlllsboro. Gaston and Carlton to Mc-
Mlnnvllle, where we remained two
hours, every moment being taken up
In seeing something new and getting
acauainted. We returned by way of
Dundee, Newberg and Sherwood, on the
other side of the Valley, going and
coming through the very heart of a
territory capable of sustaining halt a
million families and of unsurpassed
beauty and fertility. Our party left
Portland after luncheon and returned
at 7 o'clock in the evening. Just late
enough for us to enjoy the grandeur
of the sunset beyond the Tiuaraoo-
hills, which can only be seen from the
Valley or the crest of the hills west
of Portland.
"Since then I have passed a month
in the towns between here and 11c
Mlnnvllle. riding about the surround
ing country, and have purchased a zoo
acre farm near Gaston, which I will
rent out, but upon which I will build
a new residence for a Summer home.

the beauties and possibilities of your
own country."
