AMI LAND, OllKOoX, WKI'NfI)A Y, OCTOBER 22, 1919,
Ashland High Starts
Season With Win
Aihland High school football war
rlon returned yesterday from Klam
ath Falls with a nineteen to noth
ing victory tucked away ai a good
beginning for the football season.
The locals really didn't deserve to
win by such a score, the Inexperience
of the Klamath boys costing them
at least one touchdown. But Ashland
earned one score after a brilliant
series of end runs, forward passes
and line-plunges from one end of
the field to the other, Intercepted the
two forward passes which Klamath
essayed and In general acquitted
- themselves very creditably.
The game was the cleanest which
has ever been played in Southern
Oregon, bo penalties being Inflicted
on either Bide and only three or four
warnings for minor Infringements of
rules being necessary. For an early
season game It was also quite free
from fumbles, the Ashlanders erring
but once in this respect.
The Klamath crowd were game to
the finish and time after time threat
ened to go over the Ashland goal but
lacked the punch at the critical mo
ment. The Klamath boys are all
new at the game, even their captain
having never before played high
school football, but show promise of
developing into a machine which will
make the valley teams bump when
they come over to play Ashland and
Medford next month. I
Ashland scored in the first quar
ter. After working me ball well
down into Klamath territory, they
lost it on downs near the goal lino.
The Klamath center passed high, the
ball rolling over the goal line, none
of the Klamath bunch seemed to
know Just what to do and while they
were pondering Provost fell on the
ball scoring a touchdown counting
six points. Had the losers been up
on the game it would have gone for
safety counting only two points. Pro
vost failed to kick goal: Ashland
scored again in the second quarter
after Sllby had Intercepted a forward
The Klamathans came back strong
In the third quarter and things looked
cloudy for a few minutes but a shift
In the Ashland line-up put additional
punch In the local's- attack and in
the fourth Bryant scored after Inter
cepting a forward pass. Provost
The Ashland team Is well balanced,
has a back-field which will measure
up In punch to any of past years and
should make a good run for the
Southern Oregon championship. In
offense they showed up very well.
Defensively the line had a bard time
stopping a mass formation line-lunge
which Klamath used repeatedly with
good effect. The Ashland ends also
showed lack of drilling and permit
ted several end runs to get around
them for big gains. The secondary
defense Is very strong however and
there would seem to be little likeli
hood of any man getting clear
through this year.
The team lined up with, Schuerman
and Jones, ends; Clarke and Mc
Mlllin, tackles; Neeley and Small,
guards; Captain Young center; Sll
by and Wolters, halves; Provost, full
back, and Bryant, quarter. McMil
lln does the booting and registered
a couple of fifty yard efforts. Bryant
ran the team in a creditable manner.
Corlon and Beeson substituted for
Small and Schuerman during the lat
ter part of the game.
Coach Moore of Ashland and the
Klamath coach, who Is also a Moore,
have apparently been drilling their
men on clean hard tackling and
blocking. The game was a smashing,
gruelling affair and several times
was taken out on account of Jarring
mashes but no Injuries which a day's
limbering up will not remove, were
The valley lads are most enthu
siastic over the reception accorded
them in Klamath Falls. They were
quartered at the White Pelican ho
tel, were guests, together with the
Klamath team at a chicken dinner
given by the domestic science teach
er and girls at the high school Fri
day, honor guests at a dance given
by the high school students Satur
day night, and received the most
cordial kind of treatment in every re
spect As a result of the good fel
lowship engendered, the game was
not 'marred by a single sqaubble such
as so often occurs in a hotly con
tested mix on the gridiron.

NOTKH ON DECORATIONS
Some very fine achievements In
the way of window decorations were
accomplished this week among the
merchants of Ashland In the displays
arranged of Oregon made goods. Not
only were the products attractive to
the representatives of the manufac
turers and business houses that
made them and sold them, hut they
are well worth the citizens of Ash
land taking a stroll along tho street:!
and see Just what our merchants are
selling In tho way of Oregon pro
ducts. All acquitted themselves
most creditably and all denervo
many compliments on their work.
Not only the prize winners snd
those receiving honorable mention
deserve great credit for the display i
they so attractively nrranired, but
practically every business house In
the city outdid themselves when It
came to exhibiting the goods which
they handle in their Hues. Special
ly Is this true of the four dry good 4
stores, Vaupel's, Ferguson's, Mc
Cee's and Knders, which' displayed
attractive lines of goods made by Or
egon woolen mills, men's clothing,
suit cases, dress accessories, shoes
and many other attractive lines all
coming from Oregon mi.nuf.cto. i.'H.
All these stores do a wonderfully
good business among Oregon pro
ducts and If they cannot secure Ore
gon made goods thev one and all
patronize Oregon jobbers of import
Paulserud & Barrett and one- dis
played some very fine Ore'-on-.nr.d"
woolen goods and Oregon -made
clothing In their windows this week.
These are artistically set off with
branches of nutunin leaves anl
sprays of wild rose haws. Mitchell's
clothing store also attracted much
attention with Its home productions
displayed in the windows.
While the Jewelers of A''l ml
were not able to make much of a
display of Oregon manufactured
goods during the exhibit last week,
they all could, and did display a
flna line of goods purchased entlrcly
from Oregon jobbers, consisting o'
silverware, jowelery, clocks ami
other lines. Their displays were
among the most attractive In tiie
The druggists in Ashland had won
derful displays of Oregon produc
tions In their windows. Foley's dis
play was featured by their own pre
scriptions and Oregon M.-timiery.
while McNair Eros, featured Z-puy-rol,
an Oregon product. W. A. Shell
also displayed Oregon projucls in
the shape of shampoos, hair tonic
and barber supplies In the window
of his barber shop.
The hardware and farm inn lenient
stores contributed their quota to the
attractive window displays in the
city.' Whilo hardware Is not greatly
manufactured yet in Oregon, Ash
land merchants favor Oregon job
bers as much as possible in buying
their stock and had filled their win
dows well with these lines of poods.
All the automoolle garages and re
pair shops also assisted in beautify
ing the city with their stock on dis
play, which all added to the attrac
tion of Ashland.
Among the attractive window dis
plays to exhibit to tho Portland busi
ness men on their virit to Ashland
last week were the furniture stores
of Dodge & Son and Swenson & Mc
Rae. The former received first prize
on account of their elaborate display
of Oregbn made furniture, while
Swenson & McRae had one large
Bhow window filled with handsome
Oregon manufactured furniture an.!
others showed stoves bought from
Oregon Jobbers. Rugs, nnd carpets
were also beautiful features in those
Mrs. Susie L. Allen showed n par
ticularly attractive window at her
real estate office on North Main
street last week. Among the Ash
land grown fruit and vegetables on
display she had bouquets of rare mi.l
beautiful flowers from her own car
den, and all tended to show in what
an extremely desirable country Ash
land is situated.
Dennis' feed store had an attractive
display in their windows last week
consisting of plutcs of home grown
seeds and grain In one window, while
the other had splendid varieties of
home grown vegetables.
The grocers without doubt had a
better chance to make a showy dis
play of Oregon made and Oreeon
grown products In their windows on
extension trade excursion day. The
White House was one of the prii'e
winners with Holmes' grocery a dor'
second. The Ashland Trading Store.
Sams', Loomls & Nelson and the
Shasta were all beautifully decorat
ed with Oregon manufactured pro
ducts put up in their fancy contain
ers and artistically arranged, and
m i die

their usual generosity to the cam

lly Nathan Strauss
iChairnian Trade Extension Excur
i sioii, Portland Chamber of
j "Coming fresh from two splendid
1 meetings with the business men of
j Medford and Klamath Fulls, the
business men of Portland are gratt-
. tied today to ba with the people of
ASiiiauu, ami 10 inaiin iiieiu ui jiei
isoii for their Invitation you have
extended to us to spend tho duy In
this beautiful city. Although the
two c ii i ro t the extreme north
and imh boundaries of the state,
there Is much In common between
us, b; th cor. ir.L'rcially und socially,
and stnely In those things In which
we can work together for mutual
benefit and for the boneflt of the
state as a whole.
"We aro living In a wonderful
age. The past few years, as never;
beforo have shown us the value of
co-operation In nationul mutters and
in stato matters. Oregon has ac
complished for herself a record un
excelled by any other state. It Is
our desire and we know it is the
wish of tho residents of Ashland that
the old-time and continuous record
of friendship between our beloved
city and yours, shall continue with
c-en greater enthusiasm than in the
past, if It Is possible more closely
to bind the two communities in clos
"Oregon lias a great future. No
slate is better favored, and In our
enthusiasm wo arc inclined to be
lieve no other state has so much to
offer the world as Oregon. That
is as It should he. Loyally to our
state, enthusiasm 111 her develop
ment, will bring us fume and pros
perity. It Is not the mero sponding
of money that accomplishes the most
good for any coihinuuity. Lacking
co-operation and state loyally and en
thusiasm, the spending of money can
not be made to bring that full re-
tum in slate development we all so
greatly desire. Euuuisli.sm, co-
operation and the elimination of self-
Ishness lias In the past few years re-
suited In the present marvelous,
growth of Oregon. It is good to see
and for us of Portland to moot with
the business people of Southern Or
egon. "We are especially glad to be In
Ashland today. You have so many
wonderful tilings to show us. Your
wonderful a"riciilturnl, limber nnd
minim; resources are enriching you
and will greatly add lo your wealth
as time passes, but you have other
advantages which will supplement
and add to your fame i nd prosperity. !
You are wonderfully located to take
advantage of the great tourist travel
which will follow tho completion of
the Pacific highway. As a "'-
mer resort you have few equals. Your
wonderful mineral waters, your
splendid scenic attractions will mnke
yon famous. I congratulate and f-
llcitate the people of shlsnd on all
these things and wish for your city
a continuance and enlargement of.
your very evident prosperity."
