The beaches are looked forward with
especial eagerness by the children who
apply for places in the fresh air par
ties, a surprising number of whom have
never before seen the ocean.
Two of the lads, who were in the
Ilwaco party which returned last week,
came back yesterday asking if they
could not be sent to the beach once
"A man named Ben .Baker, he said
bed like to have one of us stay with
him for several months and dig clams
and gather cranberries," said "Alonzo,"
the elder of the two. "I'd be willing
to walk there if you can tlx it up sure
ao he'd take me."
It aeemed, though, that Mr. Baker
had not suggested taking two boys, and
argument between Alonzo and Bob, his
little brother, reached an almost hostile
atage, when they came to determining
Just which one had been invited.
Finally, Alonzo Baid that he thought it
was probably Bobbie.
"There's another fellow named Tinker
that might let me come and stay with
him for a while," he finally said, hope
fully. "Why don't you write to him?" sug
gested V. R. Manning, secretary of the

mitted Alonzo, and, procuring a pencil,
he laboriously produced the following:

Winter and I want to pick cramberyea
for you and I will go to school there

answer write away Alonzo"
Alonzo May Win Trip.
The fresh air folk are going to make
an efTort to see that Alonzo gets an
other chance at the beach.

girl, who was no relation to him. The
father deserted and the mother Is in

140 Already Sent Oat.
Three weeks' activity in the fresh
air movement this year has brought
the number of the children sent out
for vacations up to 149. The plan has
been to send out 50 a week during the
season. Of those sent out. the parties
were distributed as follows: Silverton

Parties will be sent out in this week
to Newberg. Dallas, Carlton and Inde
pendence. Newberg will receive 15 and
Dallas 5. Carlton has not yet an
nounced how many It will take, and it
is estimated that Independence will
handle about 50.
The fund has reached a total of $1852,
and probably will pass the J2000 mark
Freah Air Site Scanned.
Secretary Manning went yesterday to
Investigate some property that had
been regarded as a possible place for
the fresh air farm which the Associated
Charities has been contemplating since
the opening of the movement In 1913.
It is expected that the contributions
this year will be about $3000. Out of
this, expenses for fresh air outings for
about 500 children will be paid, and it
Is hoped that sufficient funds will be
received over and above these imme
diate expenses to make the purchase of
the fresh air farm.
The plan Is to obtain about ten acres
in the vicinity of Portland and there
establish a fresh air colony similar to
the Life Fresh Air Farm. When this
has been arranged there will be no
longer the necessity of canvassing the
entire state to secure places to which
children and tired working mothers
may be sent in hot midsummer for rest

AFRESH air farm has been estab
lished at Lebanon. Or., by Ches
ter A. Lyons, who is attempting
to work out the children's problems in
a new way.
Mr. Lyons has not unlimited means,
but he has boundless enthusiasm and
on his 20-acre tract he has established
a colony for boys between the ages of
12 and 14 years. The farm lies a mile
and a half south of Lebanon. This is
probably the first fresh air farm in
Mr. Lyons does not allow his boys
to devote all their time to pleasure: he
has work for them to do. Each one has
a task to perform each day and after
this is done an hour Is devoted to
"heart-to-heart" talks between Mr.
Lyons and the boys. The man hopes by
these talks to give the boys ideas and
ideals which may prove .invaluable to
them in later life. The boys respond
to the talks wonderfully and do their
best to make everything as congenial
After the work of the day is done a
campfire is built at 8 o'clock. At 9 all
the boys are In bed.
Mr. Lyons has a one-room house on
his tract which he calls his office and
it is here that the boys come each day
to get their work assignments.

principal in the Mill City school last

vear has dealt with the children's prob
lem for many years. He received his
education in Illinois, where he worked
with Jane Addams. of Hull House, and
in the stockyard district of Chicago
gaining information and training which
have been invaluable In his charity
work. He believes that with the open
ing of the Panama Canal that Oregon
will have a real problem to race anu
he is eauinnliiK himself for service.
His farm lies in a verdant valley at
the foothills of the Cascade range. A
mile away is Peterson's Butte, one of
the high points of the valley. Sodaviue,
Waterloo and Sweet Home are all with
in walking distance and numerous
hikes are taken by the boys.
The boys are found in Portland by
means of the Associated Charities. They
are selected from the homes which are
in the worst condition, for it is the aim
of the benefactor to give aid where it
Is needed. As soon as the boys reach
camp they are required to arrange their
tents and take a bath. The bathroom
adjoins the office and each boy is re
quired to "swim" every day.

PASOO, Wash.. July M c Special.
The resurvey of tho Paleuse lrrlca

the people of Pasco and tho surround

About eight years ato the project
was first brought prominently before
Ongresa and at that time an appropri

neuvering In politics In Washington
caused this project t" be laid aside,
while others were developed. During
these years tho people of this psrt of
the state have been continually fight
Ing to have the project sgsln slated
for an appropriation.
Mr. McCullough snld some time ago
that his report to the (iovernment on
the resurvey would be ready about th
middle of July. He said he was wetf
pleased with the character of the land..
soil and climate of this district. Ha
has said that reservoir sites havo bean
fjund at Rock Lake. Washington, an. I
at Potlatch. Idaho. The only problem
Is the cost an acre for watering the
land. If this Is not so high that the
project will bo considered Impractical,
