MANY ESSAYS IN PREPARATION
I saw Mt Hood against the twilight

Trailing a scarf of snowy bloom
Transfused with gold.

He crowned the fleeting view,
And mid the cool, calm grandeur of

"BILLY" HERE SATURDAY
(By Bo Wil on)
Recently a peculiar "bug" was
brought to the science class. It was
about an inch long and looked vty
much like a small crawfish because of
Its1 claws but is had eight legs and a
long slender tall with a hird fork on
it It late? proved to be a scorpion.
Scorpian: live by catching and
killing sluw, beetles and even small
miee and- shrews, as they grow t0 be
eight inches long in tropical regions
Thej kill their food V holding il
in 'their claws and stinging the vic
tim with their tail.
A scorpion sting will be painful
but it will not kill a person unless
he Ms very weak. 1 The young are
like the adult when born end do
not' go through the egg stage.

BY BOYS IN SCHOOL
Hedin Say They're Detrimental to
Health of Participant-
Should the High schools of Wasco
county sponsor a mile run as a part '
of the annual track meet? We hear :
"es and no.
I believe we should not, for the re a-
;on that runners often enter who are
not In mile-run condition to stand the j
:rind of this strength-taxing race. !

aers but all must get their studms or
m.:. The reason, as aee it, t..i
vevents proper training for mile
mn,-. is simply a tax on the good stu
lent'g time in which to get his les
ons and perhaps to help some at
home. Many students, in turn, have
'ess time for the long training abso
lutely required to run 'the' route.
Young Hunt of Maupin has never
'ieen the same ir ince his run last year;
young Woodside and Bronner, both
f Wapinitia, broke all to nieces after
he mile and half-mile grind. Thev
H had the stuff but were only half
trained, thus they were punished f-
structora who urged them on in
irder to win points for their dis
rict' score, not maliciously but not
i good judgment when the best in
se ts of those fine young men and
ther are understood.
Young Durmon of Shaniko and
Vlexander of Maupin were surprises

ijured "by that run 111 be 'Still more
