The following letter has been tent to
tho teachers of Wallowa county by
County Superintendent Kerua:'
Enterprise , Oregon, Dec. 16, '07.
Dear, Teacher: Working in harmony
with the management of the County
High School, I wish to solicit your aid
in planning and arranging for a County
Declamatory Contest to be held at the
close of the Hbh School next May.
The plans in brief are as follows: The
county is divided into six districts,
namely: Lostine including districts 4,
40, 17, 13,34; Wallowa, including dis-
tjjr.tx I, 16, 30, 37, 47, 26, 55, 60; Enter
prise, including districts 2, 28, 31, 41,
15, 03, 18, 50, 63; Joseph, including dis
tricts 3, 5, 22, 20, 13, 9, 25, 11, 33, 8, 65;
Flora, including districts 10, 29, 64, 58,
59,42,44, 27, 39, 35, 66; Promise, in
cluding districts 56, 43, 51, 61, 38, 49, 62,
45, 48, 52, 64, 40. The principal, in the
towns above named, shall act as division
manager and arrange with the districts
in his division for the local tryout
which will be held on Saturday evening,
April 11, at such place as the division
manager may designate. The success'
tul candidates in the local tryonts will
meet at the final contest at the County
High School next May, when' a gold
medal will be awarded the fir.-t best and
a silver medal the second best speakers
Any pupil attending the public school
or the first year of any high school in
the county is eligible. Detailed infor
mation will be furnished on application
to the division manager. It is probable
that the expenses of the final contest
will be paid.
This is an opportunity for the devel
opment of oratorical talents. Do your
best to have one or more of your pupils
at the local tryout.
Very truly yours,
John W. Kerns, Co. Supt.

' Last Week Ends November Term
Judge T. H. Crawford came in Sun-
frJtn, purpose of straightening out
tlie Lourt tangle in this county. On ac
count of Governor Chamberltiin's fail
ure to declare tw o days of last week
legal holidays the November term of
court came to an end, and it was necess
ary to discharge the jurort.
Judge Crawford made an order call
ing a special term to c. nvene January
6th, at which time most of the court,
both civil and criminal, can be hear.l.
A number of cases, however, must go
over to tlie way term. A new jury was
selected for the spriug session and the
sheriff directed to summons them to be
present. A certified copy of the order
lor tlie special term mn.-t be served up
on all litigants or their attoi neya.
Judge Craw ford listened to the argn
ment of motions and demurrers Mon
day in the following cases and took the
same under advisement ti be decided
later, to-wit: T. B. Ready, plaintiff, vs.
Henry Schmith, defendant; W, K
Stubbleflold, plaintiff, vs. Angie Stub-
blefield, defendant; J. E. Patu-rson,
plaintiff, vs. Wm. P. Eisonbci A
and ihos. K. Aklns, defendants; J..
Applegate, plaintiff, vs. M. 11. Apple-
The failure of Court to meet by reason
of the holidays has worked great, bard
ships upon the litigants am a heavv
expense upon the county.
All cases in which there was service
by publication and no appearance en'
tered must go over to theMay term.'
The panel of jurors for the special ses
sion is as follows: Kat Hamilton, Jo

PLAN FOR DEBATE
New County High School Building f ifl
Be Occupied After BoIidas.-Prd-gram
The new high school building will be
rei dy for ooeuparcy at the resuming of
school after the Christmas holidays,
and it has been decided that it shall
ho informally opened at the time of
the debate between the Wallowa Coun
ty high school team and the Pendleton '
high school team, to be held in Enter
prise about tho 17th of January.
Ihe general plan of the exercises is
to hold the debate from 8 to 9:30 p. m. .
at tho op. ra house, where the program
will eor.Mst ol an address hv klmmr
Royd, music and tho debate. The in
vited guests will then repair to the
assembly room of the high school where
a musical program will be rnnrtnnul
while the banquet is being served.
The formal dedication of the high
school building will not be held until
the close of the school year, and will
probably be in connection with the
ooiinty declamatory contest la May.
It is desired that the occasion of the
dedication of the new building' shall be
one in which all Wallowa county may
participate. The new building in itself ;
is one in w hich the county may well
take pride, and Principal W. E. Moore
is making every effort to place our
county high school among the best in
the state. The educational facilities of
a county is one of the first things con
sidered I y a prospective settler at
least by tl.e desirable settler. Up-to-
date irogrcsive schools are Indicative,
of an intelligent, proRperouj community .
The establishing of a county high school
means much tc Wallowa county. It
means much to every family in the
county where children are growing op.
It opens the way for a broader life, a
greater opportunity in this age when
education counts for rr. ore than ever
before. It speaks volumes to the outside
l County Court Xeeti.
County court which was ' called ' to -nieet
Monday found that the only bus
iness it cruld legally transact was
auditing the claims filed against tho
county. A large number of claims
were allowed and warrants drawn for
the several amounts due the claimants. '
The amounts thus disbuised will
materially asMst in relieving the finan
cial situation of the county.
