The school district and the business tnc-ii of Athena this week subscribed nearly $400 for the purchase of suits and supplies for the high school foot ball team.

The team was defeated by Umapine High last Friday, by the score of 20 to 0, and the showing made by the team in this game, which was the first it had play ed, is considered good by those who witnessed it.

Iy i. r. LANDER "As dreary as a hospital." It's an often beard statement, orig inating probably with someone whose father or mother or baby bad lain la a hospital for daya someone whoa esperlence tad stamped on his min4 forever a picture of white, plain bed; white, plain room; white, silent corri dors deserted by all but white-clad, silent nurses. There are many such. Hospitals now are bing established by the score, institutions of the Uni ted States public health service which are to care for the former sarrlce me' who need medical or surgical atten tion. Some of the patients will autke ahort stays. Some will be there years. Many are tuberculosis wreck ed, with none too much joy In life ahead at beat. The public health service his a faH- alsed task on lis hands In actual medi cal and surgical work. There must be something more If these Institutions some of them her In the Northwest; at Taeoma, Bolee, Port Townaend are different from the hospitals too many of us have known. The Red Cross is that something more. I learned that when I went out to the old Cushman Indian school, now a new public health service hospital. The buildings were old and alteration work had progressed Just far enough ' to permit of the reception of forty-odd patients who couldn't be crowded Into the older institutions; paint was lack ing everywhere. It looked dreary enough to be a hospital. Then I found the Red Cross build ing, headquarters for the social service workers assigned to the Institution. I found the recreation hall cretonne curtained, equipped with piano, phono graphs, books, and furniture which, wasn't white and square. I found It filled with "walking cases" listening, to Ted Williams' Jasx Band and Al Jolaon. ,.-::'? , - J I went with the Red Cross workers " to boys who two years ago were fight- tied with the candidate's election as-.

" "OVER THE HILL" The- Telephone Situation In the enginerintf of a telephone plant switchboards, con duits, cables, pole lines and general mechanical equipment we have always tried to anticipate the growth of a community and provide therefor by advance construction. This course has ena bled us to more promptly comply with requirements for service with better construction and nt an ultimate expense less than that involved in waiting to meet demands as they arise. In the war period we were unable to maintain this reserve plant, as tbe very things we needed for telephone purposes were required and necessarily taken for government purposes. The demand for .telephone service did not decrease and our reserve facilities were practically absorbed in meeting it As every business man knows, the problems of reconstruc tion following the war have been acute and prolonged to an unexpected degree. Unusual conditions are prevalent through out the entire manufacturing, mercantile and social world. The telephone industry has had to meet all the difficulties and han dicaps of tetarded production, distribution and transportation. This advertisement is not meant to be one of apology, but one of explanation and even accomplishment. .In the face of an unprecedented demand for telephone service in the last few months, hampered by the exhaustion of our reserve plant and difficulty in securing materials, we have added more, telephones thus far this year in the State of Oregon than in any similar period of telephone history. In the State of Oregon, in the eight months ending August '81, we have added 6863 telephones. In the eight months ending July 31, 1917 before the war we gained 2655 telephones. In the State of Oregon we have approximately 2600 unfilled applications for telephone service. A similar situation exists all over the United States. We will continue to secure all the equipment possible, and the desires of the public will be met as soon as it is humanly possible to do so, ' The Telephone Company regrets the inconvenience to pros-, pective subscribers. It is as anxious to give service as the patron is to receive it. - The Company is doing all in its power to rem edy conditions and furnish service in accordance with normal standards.

It is expected the road work on the Weston sector of the State highway will he completed for the winter on next Tuesday, after which the street work in Athena will be-:resuiued. .It will take the greater part of 'next summer to complete. Robert rroudfit has purchased the residence property of Mrs. Samuel Haworth on Adams street, and so soon aa necessary repairs 'can be made, his family will occupy it and later the residence will be completely remodel ed. For a time it semed that "Bob" was destined to move back to his Wes ton residence on account of no house being available to rent in Athena, but now he and his estimable little family arc permanent Athenaites. The Athena Civic club will be vis ited at its next meetinp, November 16th, by Mrs. Edith Van Dusen, coun ty demonstration agent," for the pur pose of giving instruction in any of the branches of domestic art to be determined on at the meeting. J The Star club will be entertained next Tuesday afternoon nt the home of Mrs. C. H. Smith on' Jefferson street, when all members and those eligible to membership will be wel come. Mrs. Smith will be assisted in entertaining the club by Mrs. E. C. Rogers. The high school play, "When Smith Stepped Out," will be given on the evening of November 19, in the high school auditorium.

Mrs. Thomas Booher and baby daughter were Athena visitors from Weston, Wednesday. - Hereafter it will not be necessary for Athena people to go away from town for X-ray examinations, for Dr. C. II. Smith has installed one of these machines in his office. The appara- sured but here is where the surprise package was untied. When the ballots were counted, it was found that one of the largest number of votes ever cast in an Athe na city election had been polled. Mr. Barrett received' 150 and Mr. Little john 90 out of a total of 242 votes cast for mayor. The candidates for the remaining offices received the fol lowing vote: Councilmen Wm. McLeod 212; O. O.
