HIGH SCHOOL VOTED
OUT AT TYGH VALLEY
Voters Killed Proposition at
Election Hold Saturday!
Grade School Later
Tygh Valley voters killed the
High school at that place at an elec
tion held there last Saturday. Next
year will tee only, a grade school
at that place, the pupils now in the
four higher classes having to seek
me other place in which to com
plete their High school course.
We fail to see the wisdom of the
action of the voters. Tygh Valley
has always been known as a good
school center; ha graduates have
made good wherever they went; they
had received the best instruction,
with the exception of a very few
cases, and a number were aet to
complete their studies at Tygh Val
ley. This move will have the effect
of acattering there pupil to o.ther
towns and other schools. It will be
expensive to the parents of such pu
pils and will result in a loss to tho
school fund., of Tygh Valley.
We are sorry to fearn of the action
of Tygh Valley voters but will re
tain the knowledge that experience
is a dear teacher and also that the
patrons of the school at Tygh will
sooner or later realize their error
and make up for it.

TRAPPER'S IDEA OF STYLES
B. C. FulUereon, After Observing
Fashion,' Writes of Thorn
When a girl goes out shopping
This is what she gets;
A lip stick and new silk dre. a
A little shorter yet
A pair of horn rimmed slippers
To wear upon her feet,
And a pair of fine silk stocking
So dress and them will meet.
She will look around a little while
And hit the floor ker-flop,
Then put on her fine silk hose
And roll them, at the top.
She will stand before the mirror
And powder face and no e,
Then go walking up the street
Steeping on her toes,
With a tmile on her face
Aa long as a rope,
With a mouth full of chewing gum
As big as a bar of soap.

CHURCH GOING IS A HABIT
Tho Practice Work, For Good and
. Should be Followed
Going to church is a habit, one
, that always works for the good of
! those who have formed it Nothing
'but good is heard at church, besides
new slants, on the promises of the
Almighty are obtained. Those who
go to church regularly are alwayu
reeogniied as the community's best
people and are looked up to. A
church has ft civilizing influence on
a community and where no churches
exist things usually hang . on the
ragged edge of lawlessness.
In order to influence people to
acquire . the church going habit and
to inculcate chrt tian ideas in the
young Sabbath schools are maintain
ed. Pnstors render interesting ser
mons and an air of close companion
ship is engendered. The church pro
gram for next Sunday openswith
Sabbath school at 10:00 o'clock,
preaching at 11:30; Bible itudy at
6:30 and evening service . at l'OO.
Wapinitia Sunday program is the
same as that of Maupin, except
there will be no preaching. The
Christian Endeavor meets there at
6:30. Remember that going to
church is a good habit; staying away
is also a habit but a bad habit.
Choose the good and go to church.
