: Some time ago the school board
purchased what is called the "Mau

by the city wtih a view of establish

the schools the needed space for an
athletic field and now that the en

may expect that Maupin schools will
soon be equipped with as good a
field as has any school in Oregon.
The move is wise one and will fill
a long felt need.
