W. T. Beatty of White Salmon and Rev. F. W. " Delaphine of Hood River, and greatly enjoyed by all pmcnt. Then ia paction was the order of the day, and was quite a matter of serious inspection, as all the tents were in splendid shape. Many of the visitors brought their lunch and several had notified the cook and bought tVir dinners there. A committee of the Lion. Club of The Dalle brought five gallons of ice cre-ini, which tlr: scouts enjoyed very much. There also were several nice treats of peanuts, niarhallows, cantaloupes, peaches, etc., brought for the boy to' enjoy later, which means much to a boy in, camp. Court of Honor at 2:00 a. m. was wonderful and showed some of the work the scouts had been doing in camp. Then came a boat race in the large whale boats of the camp, which was quite an exciting event and enjoyed very much, as it was declared a tie. Then a treasure hunt, which proved quite a hunt, but the trea ure was eventually found, and being candy and gum was, of course, quite a treasure to the group which made the find. There was scheduled contests in brwimjning and; diving, but, , .the afternoon proved too cold for the sport. The wind and rain cleared away at sundown and a wonderful campfire ended the day in camp. Scout Ralph Kaiser, and Her best Kramer, from Maupin, attended the camp. WATER COMING DOWN TO FLAT: . Pond.

The larg increase is attributed to the "floating university" trip on the S. S. Queen wheh took 155 students on a two-weeks cruise of Alaska. In addition to this, however, the campu; enrollment of 161 students exceeds all prevous enrollment. 16H0 students attended or are at tending the summer sessions con ducted in Eugene and Portland, and the post-c.es. ions.

PflFK - ONE OF y EAR, OVER tiwMX.fa HONEY UOU v Sj&" HJI ( Lueile Cantrell Writes Tha Timet of Voyage to the Land of Cold Below we publish a letter from Mrs. Lucile Cantrell, now on a trip to Alaska a a member of the sum mer school contigent from Corvailis and Eugene schools of higher edu cation. Mrs. Cantrell seems to be entranced with the scenery on the trip and tell of her experience; in a plcasureable manner: August 14, 1929. On Board the S. S. Queen Thru the home paper I wish to send word to n-y friends in Maupin and ucinity that I am now on my long anticipated Alaskan trip. We left Seattle August 8th, and all too soon will be back in the states a week from today. We are now southward bound but stopping to load salmon from an up-to-date cannery at Hood Bay before going to Sitka. We will return via Juneau, where the Juneau Alaska mining works are overhead. I say overhead, advisedly, because we climbed about seven hundred step almost vertically to reach the top of the building on the hill over hanging the town. The tunnels run back into the hills two and one- half miles and are still 250 feet be low the turface. The mining is done by the gravity system, with huge revolving tanks containing steel balls t0 crush the. ore. Yesterday we were in Skaguay, that famous place enroute to the gold fields of Dawson. From there we went inland on a narow guage railroad, wheh . clmbs over White Pass to lake Bennett and on. We . went no farther than the lake, where the few dteletons of Bhacka remain as mute testimony of the once gold-crazed population of 15,000, housed mostly in tents. There is only a lunch station there now. Skaguay, too, make one think of a cemetery, when you see the old vacant buildings and make a guess at the probable excitement of earlier days when the popula tion exceeded 20,000.. In Skaguay I saw the most beautiful flowers to be found anywhere in the world. The owner of the gardens under stands his business for the richly colored dahlias now in bloom were truly as big as a dinner plate, and the length of my indsx finger ju t measured a nansv blossom. Fnfn are expected at any time and then only the hot house plants will sur vive. The old trail may still be seen along the sides of mountains of" granite and overhanging a ragiugr torrent I should have liked to go' to Dawson to see White Horse rapids where the first gold seekers met their Waterloo, but if financially secure I'd like to spend the summer in Ala ka so we'll forget the if. Last evening we heard Bishop Rowe of the Episcopal church, who having come into the territory be fore '98, visited missions along the Yukon and inside the arctic Circle with dog teams. His recent trip to his northern mi sion was by air plane. You would never tire of hearing thia man stalwardt physi cally, mentally and morally, who has met all th vicissitudes of life in Alaska, has a sense of humor and unbounded faith in the people, Es komo, Indians and whites.
