A Western Scene
By looking out of the west
window of the school house, one
can perceive the lordly Colum
bia river flowing on its winding
way. In the distance you can
observe.on a clepr day,thesnow
covered Mt. Hood with change
able colors as the aun shines on
it. On the other side of the riv
er the blue Washington Range ia
visible with its rugged and shar
py sides. You can see the West
extension of the Umatilla pro
ject, dotted with houses, bams
and haystacks. The road lead
ing from the school house iroes
down to the town of Boardman,
with its grocery stores and other
business places. On the out
skirts of Boardman, following
the Columbia river, is the Col
umbia Highway with a stream of
cars going back and forth.

A Venture
Alton started out from Board
man with a Packard to find him
something to eat. He had noti
gone far until he diacovered j
some eggs which showed Signs J
of Hatch ing. "Ah-ha!" said he,
whan these become Broyles they
will be Goodwin s, I'm aure!" he
sent a Messenger to announce
his discovery at home. He then
pat his find in a box and locked
it securely. When he arrived at.
home he discovered that he had
lost his Keys, so he attempted to
unlock the box with his jack
knife. But he broke the Blayd
en had to smash the box .Just
then Mr. Klitz arrived on the
scene and demanded of his son
why he didn't explain his Cam
ins and goin'a Alton's explana
tion proved unsatisfactory so he
was thrashed until there re
mained not a sin Gilbreth in his
body, and he decided "Never a-gain."
.lust Before Sunset
In the distance Mt. Hood is
visible, with her snow clad peaks
lit up by the golden sunset.
Here and there we get a glimpse
of the broad Columba winding
her way slowly to the distant
aea. Near the foot of the nioun
tain a train is winding its way
thru the hills. The passengers
have their heads out of the win-'
dows trying to catch a glimpse
of the glorious sunset. On the
plains numerous black dots are
dioernible. They are cattle graz
ing. FarmerB ate at work, some
leveling land, baling hay and
others are building.
Vast plains of sag brush
atretching way out to an un
known Unfitness can be seen.
Long lines of telegraph poles
atretching out in the country are
viaible. A very common sight
is the farmers hauling their pro
ducts to town. Then there's
the little town of Boardman with
a store and post office. A farmer
ia seen in the streets loading up
with supplies.
