UNION SCHOOLS
There has been considerable dis
cussion in Weston as to the possible
union of several contiguous school
districts with the Weston district It
is thought that such an arrangement
would undoubtedly work out to the
advantage of all concerned, since it
trould give to Weston a larger school
affording better educational facilities
for town and country alike. By put
ting motor carryalls in service, the
transportation phase would be easily
solved. , 1 '-' , ' -
The following editorial along this
line in a recent issue of the Oregon
Journal is of local interest: .
- "The national conference for better
rural schools has proposed to make
160 days the standard school year.
This amounts to eight months of 20
days each, little enough. It keeps the
child in school for more than a third
of the calendar year theoretically.
Practically it gives, him 960 hours of
instruction in the 12 months. Since
the total number of hours in the year
. is about 8760 the association would
kecD him in school ahnnt nn a. ninth
of his time.
This does not look excessive, but it
is a good deal more schooling than
: most country children get. Efficien
cy in rural education requires the a-
bandonment of the old, isolated, ill
kept achoolhouse and the construction
- of union buildings. No school center
should serve less than 12 square miles
of territory while some might useful
ly serve a good deal more. With the
school wagon, which is coming into
use, pupils can go a long distance.
The cooperative, or union, district can Roger Babscn, the great financial
afford to employ the best teaching writer, and Thomas A. Edison, the
ability in the land. In unon there is great inventor, are both for Wilson
strength, for the school as well as for which just about offsets a gross of
many other good tilings." politicians.
GREAT HARVEST YEAR
Weather indications this week bid
fair that the mountain crops will be
put in the sack without loss or delay,
and that the uplands will join the low
lauds in rejoicing over the grandest
harvest in point of profit that the
Weston country ever experienced.
Good times are in prospect for the
fall and winter in this locality the
best times, perhaps, in its history.
The harvest has been abundant, the
prices extraordinary, and the effect
will be seen in a thriving town and a
smiling populace. When the farmer
is prosperous all are prosperous in an
agricultural community. Weston in ' Weakly Bulldogger Roy Raley has

We were going to hasard "Ego
amo tu"-for the last line, but were in
doubt as to whether it is good Latin.
Undoubtedly it would make good po
etry when appended to the other lines
of the above admirable and euphoni

SHOWING THEIR COLORS
The publicity committee for the
"brewers' amendment" is using a
pampniei or main statistics in an
attempt to prove that prohibition is a
failure. It thus comes out in the ooen
in an attack on prohibition. Hereto
fore we had supposed its' purpose to
be support of a not inconsistent prop
osition that where liquors are used
there they may as well be manufac
tured also. They will never get any.
where opposing prohibition as a pol
icy, no matter what may happen to
Maine. Observant people hereabouts
know that prohibition is not a failure,
but a blessing, in Eastern Oregon and
Eastern Washington towns. Its only
defect is that it should be national in
scopo. Whenever the manufacture
and sale of intoxicants is forbidden by j
federal law, and the partnership be
tween government and the liquor men
dissolved, the United State will have
taken a great step forward.
Canyon program and ia always on th
alert for new features. Wednesday
night he went to the Alta Theatre to
give Niobe the once over to see if she
might have any stunts worth putting
on at the Round-Up evening show. On
Thursday night he attended the libra
ry board meeting and we are making
a shrewd guess that he is trying to
get the two factions to stage their
next battle at Happy Canyon.
The esteemed Pendleton Tribune
promulgates the following profound
pronouncement: V
"There is no criticism of the pre
paredness appropriations. They are
proper and necessary. The schedules
remaining alter the elimination of
those items are greasy with 'pork.'"
We wonder if any grease is notice
able around the new federal building
at Pendleton.

a sneaking hope that this lawful prac
