The new Benson Polytechnic School,
erected and equipped at a cost of more
than J250.000. is not a trade school.
It is practically a technical high
, echool, affording a technical course of
four years, with sufficient academic
work to provide the college entrance
requirements for engineering- courses
at the Oregon Agricultural College.'

and competent immensity. The struc
ture stands on its six-block plot with
a. certain air of sturdy assurance in
the permanency of itself and its work.
There was a trade school in Port
land not so very long ago and be
cause the importance of technical
training had grown great with the
tasks before it, S. Benson, of Portland,
volunteered to match $100,000 of the
district's money with an equal amount
of his own for the foundation of a
echool that might take up a broader
and more constructive work.
The offer was accepted. One year
ago the first brick snuggled against
the foundation of the Benson Poiy

men, who are rushing their tasks of
installation and interior finishing. If
the school will be ready for classes
next week and they will smile
"Of course we're ready," objects the
omnipresent principal, C. E. Cleveland.
"There are a few odd jobs left, but
this is a trade school, isn't it?"
The general office of the school,
tohich Is in the administration build
ing, is similar to that of the Franklin
High School, and is connected with the
private office of Principal Cleveland.
As everywhere in the model buildings,
-the doors are severely plain and dis
couraging to dust.
Student to Know "Why."
Tn the science lecture room the stu
dents of technical courses will be In
structed in the actual relation of their
academic studies with the interesting
tasks of the shops. None will work
blindly or at random, for the first
principle of the course is that all
shall know "why."
In addition the administration build
ing houses the science laboratory. stand
ardized high-school classrooms and a li
brary with windows that show the long
sweep of the hills beyond the river. It
is in these classrooms that the students,
who troop to their books and lectures
direct from the clangor of the shops.
will learn to link their studies with
their tasks, and will revive the neces
sary academic instruction
Yet. when one leaves the administra
tion building, he need not fear the
weather on his way, for each building
of the technical knowledge plant is
reached by a single corridor of such
length that It dwindles Into distance.
You pass to the boiler-house and heat
ing plant, and to the engine-room,
where- the huge 300-horsepower giant
awaits his orders. All is for the twin
purpose of utility and instruction, and
though the school will purchase a cer
tain amount of power It Is equipped to
generate electricity for most of its

MANHATTAN BEACH, Or., Sept. I.
(Special.) Beach festivities have been
at their, height here during the past
fortnight. Cottage parties have vied
with the outdoor events and both have
been numerous and successful.
- One of the recent affairs was a musi
cal programme on Monday night. A. R.
Kirkham, of Portland, gave two splen

"I Hear You Calling Me." Piano solos
by Caroline McEwen and Miss Ander

were the readings by Mrs. Robinson.
Her dialect stories were hilariously re

posed of Messrs. Banks, Boubel, Goline
and Kirkham, sang popular airs After
the entertainment the 60 guests re
paired to the beach, where they - all
made merry around a monster bonfire
until a late hour.
At a dance about 40 young people of
the resort were entertained by Mrs.

The term will open with day classes,
but night classes will be inaugurated

Surf fishing has lately been in high
favor, due to the ease with which the

Quite a crowd was drawn on the

surf fishing, which was Introduced by
Will Smith and his young son.
Surf fishing was something new and
in a few minutes after the two started
to fish a crowd of people had their lines
in the breakers. Throw lines were
used and -were thrown out 50 or 75 feet.
Mr. Smith, an employe of Wade & Co.,
caught Ji fish in an hour, sometimes
catching two at a time. None of the:
fish measured less than nine inches.

FISHING IS GOOD AT BAB VIEW
Steady Stream of Visitors Continue
to Patronize Resort.
BAR VIEW. Or., Sept. 1. (Special.)
Bar View visitors are many in number
for this season of the year, and indi
cations are for a steady patronage all
through September. Fishing from the
jetty rocks is still the most popular
pastime, and almost at any time
dozen or more enthusiasts can be seen
lined up with their long bamboo poles.
Some have hooks on the end and fish
for perch, sea trout and other edible
denizens of the deep, while others have
small, round nets, with meat bait, and
each dip into the water brings out from
one to four fine crabs. A great per
cent of the fishing this year is for the
purpose of canning, as almost all the
Summer folks are taking back quan
tities of canned sea food. The cheap
ness and the convenience of conserving
the salmon, crabs and clams is bound
to have an effect on the Winter meat
Trout fishing in the Miami still holds
good as a premier attraction for the re
sort. On a recent trip, E. P. Marcher,
who is here from Portland for the
Summer, got the limit of 50, a number
of which were around the 12-inch mark.
