"Wt won" become iilmoiit chorus
' on the street of Maupin Saturday
evonlng when the students and school
friend returned from the truck
meet nt Tygh Valley. Interview
anyone who' attended the meet and
he will tell you that It was a "great"
day, and If this person la a Maupin
ito, ho will have to lay more thun
that. The final score showed Mau
J)ln with 83 tt point! and her nenreat
competitor, Dufur, with 65. Mau
pin made ten first place in the
twenty-five event and there were
only six events in which she did nt
take any place. Some exciting mo
menta came taut Saturday, especially
when Kenneth Snodgrass, who lit
about five and a half feet tall, uc-
' ceeded in making first place in the
high Jump by jumping 6 feet, 3
Inches; and when Bonney Duus in
the class C broad jump made 13
feet, inch, which waa practically a
foot beyond his nearest' opponent,
Miller of- Waplnitia, Who jumped
12 feet, 1 inches. Theodore Klrsch
mude third place in this contest by
jumping 11 feet, 10V4 inches. The
class girls' relay team consisting of
Merle Snodgrass, Dorm Bonney,
Aliene Greene, and Alvls Crahtrcc
brough much praise by the chcercrs
when it won by a margin of a few
inches. The Javelin throw, an event
scheduled for the first time thin
year, brought first and third places
to Andrew and Jesse Crabtree.
Andrew hurled the javelin a little
over one hundred feet. Kenneth
Snodgrass lacked by '4 inch of mak
ing the first place in the broad jump.
The record of his three jumps reads:
17 feet, 0 inches; 17 feet, 2 ',4
inches; and 1 7feet, 7 inches. Stan
ley Wood made as many first places
as he could enter events, that is
three. Earl Greene made third
place in one of the most enduring
events of the day-the mile run. Karl
made second, and Clarence ' Hunt
third in the 880 yard race. The offi
cial report of the track meet will be
issued soon. The spirt of the Mau
pin group wan particularly commend
ed. All in one, It was a glorious
meet, from the first race,' which waH
not won, until the picture of the
Maupin group was taken.'

BaieballitU Out
Maupin High School baseballists
had their first real - workout and
practice last Monday. After winn
ing the Wasco County track meet
the boys are digging in and promise
to give every other school a good
walloping in baseball, and with the
material out there is nothing to pre
vent such an occurence.
Right now, light workouts are be
ing held at noon to develop a fast
snappy infield, and a good depend
able outfield.' All arms are in' good
shape and throws are becoming ac
curate as the lameness disapears.
For pitchers, "Stan" Wood and
Andy Crabtree are showing some
mighty good stuff, and "Stan"
shows promise of being able to make
the grade against Dufur in the
opener next Friday. At the receiv
ing end, Orville. Fraley is going
great and isi getting his peg down in
good shape. At first, Cyril Fraley
is streching his long self out and
snagging everthing his way. At
second, Ken Snodgrass; at short,
Earl Greene and Jesse Crabtree; at
third, Elton Snodgrass, are all show
ing up fine and give promise of de
veloping into one of tlrose snappy,
dependable "million dollar" in
fields.. For outfield positions, Hunt,
Kidder, A. Crabtree, Jim and Art
Appling, Estal Stovall, and Knighten
are getting their eyes on long flit,
and getting able to judge drives,
even in these howling winds of the
last fe wdays. The boys all promise
to give Maupin a dandy fighting
baseball team.
At a meeting last Monday "Budge"
Greene was elected as captafn of the

Maupin people were agreeably sur

school, with his wife drove into
town. The Gqisers came over from
Battle Ground, Washington, for tho
purpose of taking in the track meet

so highly of his work that they voted
him a substantial increase in salary.
Two more teachers, maJting 18 in all
in the schools under his suporvubr,
have been engaged, to leach there
next' year. ' ' '. V'

scholars. Nearly every member of '
the Sabbath school hnd a pnrt and ;
each acquitted himself or herself

bers by the quartette were timely
and appropriate.

Tygh Valley baseballists seem to
have all the luck! possible this sea
son. On Sunday they again took in
the Antelope team by a substantial
score. Stanley Wood officiated in
the box for Tygh and the Antelope
hoys found great difficulty, in solve-
ing his slants and speed. ' '

gon City Daily Enterprise, was "a
welcome caller at The Times office
Friday morning. Mr. Brodie and
son, George, were on their way to
Bend to spend the week end. For

Connection With John Day High
way About Ready For Road Gang
The county boad went over the
contemplated extension of the road
from Antelope to Clarno, and upon
their return agreed that such exten
sion would be of great interest to
this county, therfore have let a con-
trurt .nd tAA rrmv will soon he at
work on the section.
Monday a construction crew pass- ,
ed through Maupin on the way to
Antelope. They had a large num-
ber of horses and road building
equipment with them and were going
there in order to make arrangements
for quarters to be used while at
work, on the highway.
The building of this unit will
prove of great interest to Maupin,
as it will make direct connection
with the John Day highway, over
which travel is increasing every
year. The new road will lessen the
distance from the John Day to The
Dalles and will decrease the milage
toward Portland when the Wapinitia
cut-off is completed, thus diverting
a great many travelers this way.
