"did they enjoy themselves" can be
answered, in a ringing affirmative:
-I hey positively did enjoy themselves,
evidenced by the token of happy
groups, delayed departings and "I've
Jiad such a good time!" repeated so
often and with such emphasis as to
leave no doubt.

Trouble Between Five Districts in
Clatsop County, Resulting in
Benefit of Bonds Going Else
where, May Be ' Settled.
SEASIDE. Or., Nov. 6. (Special.)
Following a meeting here today of
business men from the five districts
affected, a second meeting has been
called for Astoria. Tuesday, when an
effort will be made to provide a solu
tion for the amazing muddle in which
the Union High School of Southwest
ern Clatsop County finds itself.
If this meeting is not successful five
districts will have donated $18,000
cash for. Astoria's schools without re
ceiving any return consideration and
$2100 a year interest will be paid on
bonds for a high school here, which
will never be built.
Involved In the muddle are an illegal
election at Cannon Beach, as the result
of which a Multnomah County Judge
granted an injunction against the
Boundary Board of the district count
ing the vote, and charges that one
School Director signed a petition be
cause a revolver was held to his head.
The five school districts of Seaside.
Clatsop, Gearhart, Necanicum and
Ecola, Cannon Beach, voted last May
to creat a union high school district
Seaside, as the central district, was to
be the location of the school, but the
five directors could not agree on the
site, C. A. Woolfolk, Ecola, and Theo
dore Caples. Necanicum, demanding the
selection of the former Seaside mill.
Alleging this to be a swamp and
dangerous, the other three directors
refused, offering to compromise on any
other location. The petitions were cir
culated to annul the district. In the
resultant election last September the
districts voted three to two in favor
of dissolution. Of the three, one was
Ecola, where it has been proved that
the election results were announced
after a hat had been used as a ballot
box and that the polls were reopened
to accommodate late voters, and the
result then declared exactly the re
verse. When voting to dissolve the voters
believed each district would obtain its
pro rata of the bonds according to tax
able values for its school fund. Now
they find the bond proceeds would be
divided over the whole county, Astoria,
which had no interest, obtaining the
lion's share, while Seaside, which will
have to contribute more than half the
cost of the $35,000 issue, would obtain
but a pittance in return. The purpose
of the Astoria meeting is to try and
srl Clatsop, the outstanding district, to
lavor the school once more, then to
have the Portland injunction made per
manent, thus annulling the dissolution
election and finally to force the Union
School Board to agree on something.
