Maupin Bootleggers Nabbed

Illicit dealers in contraband booze
had a feur thrown into them, and
so bad wtt, it that they hurriedly
cleaned up their premises of liquor

For some time pant two young
fellows, posing as common work
men, have frequented one of the
places raided. They were not of a

knew their onion . Tuesday they
succeeded In purchasing a couple of
bottles of moonshine, giving mark

This move Is one that should have
been taken years ago. Maupin ha
had the distinction (whether enjoy
ed or not we are not saying) of be
ing one place where an appetite for
liquor could be satisfied at any old
time. Bootleggers have thrived
here. moonnhiners have been numer
ous in this vicinity, and they have
not had to seek far for agent; to
handle their product. Only a short
time afro a school boy was appre

been that men, and even young
boys, have been seen in a drunken
condition, that being the result of
the Illicit dealers' activities.
Gambling has been an open game
In Maupin for many moons. There
are men who delight in the thrill
of a poker game, they play for the
excitement, not for possible gain.
There are others who indulge In tho
gambling business for what they
may win. Small games, in which
young fellows "sit in" have .been
common, and there have been many
poker parties at which much money
has changed hands. All that has
Enrollment In Clubs
Asfced At This Time
Various Projects Waiting Enroll

Planned by Club Leader
Mr. D. L. .Rutherford makes a
plea for membership in the various
4-H club projects. In a communi
cation to The Times that lady en
umerates tho various divisions and
asks that prospective mcmbem got
busy and sign up for the work. Mrs.
Rutherford outlines the work and
gives some excellent advice relative
to what members should do to ac
complish the best reUlts. She says:
Wasco county will offer the fol
lowing projects In club work:
Pig, Sheep, Calf, Chickens, Tur.
keys, Ducks, Corty Pottoes, Can

Sewing, Bachelor Sewing, Home
Making. The projects are divided
under the following heads:
Live Stock, Poultry,-Crops, Gar
den, Home Economics. Sewing
The standard enrollment blanks
are In the hands of Mr. DeVoc, of
whom they may be obtained. Pros
pective members are asked to 'con

but with a reputation of being a
wide open town parents will hesi
tate in bringing their, children here,
being afruid that sinister influences
might tend to their corruption.
People staking new locutions are
usually solieitious of the character
of the places in which they would
live. They make note of schools,
churches, fraternal order.: and so
ciety in general, and when they
learn that the moral atmosphere is
tainted with gambling, boo to -jnd
general laxity they are minded to
Keek places where conditions are
wholcxume and where temptation is
not so prevalent.
The Times hns kept quiet since
it present proprietors have resided
a Maupin. We have overlooked
law-breaking, not through fear of
-etaliution on the part of those who
might have been mentioned, but
rather because it has been of a mind
to keep dark tho real condition,
not wishing to broadcast the real
status of thingu.
The Time- is proud of Maupin.
The town contains some of the best
