WHITE RESTAURANT MOVES
C. N. Sargtnt, Pioneer Restaurant
Man, Opens New Establishment
Many Attend Free Dance.
The house-warming dance at the
new garage last Saturday night was
enjoyed by a large crowd, and all
seemed to like the concrete dancing
flor. Old-fashioned music was on
hand to give zest to the dances,
and all seemed to have one of the
best times of the season.
Twenty-eight years ago C. N.
Sargent opened a restaurant In The
Dalles and during the time from
then to date he has been in the cat
ering business at Wasco's county
seat. For the past 11 years he has
been conducting the White Restau
rant, and has built up a clientele
the envy of all has competitors. His
business has outgrown his old quart
ers, necessitating larger accommo
dations, therefore he has fitted up
the west room of the new garage
building Just across from the old
White Restaurant and will open its
doors to the public today.
The dining room and kitchen hav
concrete floors, over which is spread
heavy linoleum. A new' restaurant
irange. Frigidaire refrigerator, table3
chairs and, other adjuncts to a first
rrlass eatinir nlace have been in
stalled. The cafe is as sanitary ts
modern science can make it. Mr.
Sargent will take all his old restau
rant force with him to the new loca
tion. He desires to call the atten
tion of the people of this section to
the fact that he will continue to
serve patrons the same as of yore,
Droviding the best of meal at a
minimum price and guarantees ser
vice second to none. Maupin people
when in The Dalles will do well to
patronize this cafe as it is noted for
the excellence of its cuisine and the
reasonableness of its charges..
Dick Johnson blossomed out in a
new spring hat one day last week,
and when asked the whyfor replied
that now and his wife were enjoying
a new modern home he intended to
keep up appearances by wearing a
fine roof himself.

bage by R. W. Richmond. Last
Saturday Bob was in Maupin and
proceeded to show Richmond just
how the game should be played. Of
course the oil man did not win every
game, but at that made our service

cards to put into the "crib" and
just how to head off his pupil.
