Returns From I nlverslty
I Harold Kimnsnn. fttjite univer.litv
student, is working in his father's
hardware store while his brother
clen ls attending the American Le-
glon reunion at Eugene. Harold
will remain in Ashland the greater
part of the summer. George Stan
nard, Ashland student pursuing stu
dies at Los Angeles, la another
homecoming addition to the large
educational colony summering here
abouts. Nothing worth while In human
achievement is attained without in
defatigable labor. There Is no s-ib-stltute
for hard work in worth-while
accomplishment. There is no royal
or easy road to tbe he!;M of ustful
and successful attainment.
