to all for their heorty cooperation I
and attendance. Tho class has
aside about 121.00 to apply on
visit to Corvallis to learn something
of college activities at the state high
rchool track meet. If the coopera
tion of O. S, C. makes possible the
entertainment of the class while at
the meet the Seniors will have funds
enough for the trip. Plans are un
derway for transportation. Mrs.
DeVoe will take her car and it la
hoped inter, ted patrons will furnish
the use of another car to the party
of ten. The trip would bring the
Maupin students in contact with life
at college and help' them to under
stand something of the advantages
of higher study. O. S. C. annually
puts on the track meet with that
end in view.
County Superentendent, Brum
baugh gave an interesting talk be
tween scenes in the play. He con
gratulated the Seniors on their ef
forts and the fine audience for their
undivided spirit of cooperation.
There was one thing to mar suc
cess of this commuunity affair and
that was the disturbance to the au
dience caused by several unwelcome
guests who were intoxicated. No

Pace- s were found inbeaucd in
the flumes and at other places cat
tails and willows so obstructed the
flow that it was diverted to rock
wastes and coulics.
' The cut across McCubbins Gulch
has been deepened and banked up
so it will now hold water. In some I
places it was fund necessary to
deepen the cut as much as two feet
and In others from a fcot to 18
Inches. By lowering that ditch it
was made possible for water to be
conducted to the Flat. Before that
who done water had difficulty in
free flowing, as it is impossible for
water to run up hill.
A force of men representing the
Mt Hood Land & Water company
has arrived at Pine Grove, they com

the mouth of Clear Creek will be

HIGH SCHOOL PLAY
Legioa Hall Packed to the Doors;
. Character, Well Portrayed
in Comedy Drama '
Well, the agony is over, the High
school Seme- play has been produc
ed and went over with a bang. Le
gion hall was packed to the doors
with an appreciative oudience, each
of whom highly commended all thoce
responsible for an evening's unadul- j
The play, "Merton of tho Movies"
lb above the usual run of play chosen
by schools. It carried a theme of
personal ambition on the part of the
lead, whose conception of what a
moving picture should be was rather
strained, and his conviction of the
proprieties of the picture in which
he starred, a comedy, brought forth
a vein 0f comedy that gave zest to
the whole production.
We would like to make individual
mention of each taking part in the
play, but by so doing we might cause
some to feel slighted, so will say
that "Merton of the Movies" was all
that had been said of it. Each mem
ber of the cast showed careful train
ing, had his lines perfectly and ex
hibited a degree of histrionic talent
seldom shown by school amateurs.
Mrs. DeVoe is dererving of much
credit for the work she did in getting
the play ready for presentation. The
boys and girls who constructed the
stage settings are to be congratulat
ed on their efforts, and those mer
chants who so willingly loaned pro
perities for the play showed a desire
to help make the play a success.-
During the intermissions the
Misses Mabel Weberg and Nova
Hedln. discoursed pleasing numbers
on the piano. That part of the pro-
fgram proved to be entertaining and
greatly assisted in making the en
tertainment the success it achieved.
All Teachers Returning
All those teachers who are mem
bers of the educational corps of the
Maupin schools the past year, have
been reengaged and will return for
another year. We say all with the
exception of Mrs. Carr, who refused
to sign a contract for the reason
that she is tired of the separation
from her husband, who is employed
at Portland, and desires to be with

IN LAST FORMS Of
Bailder Tom Balrd Doe( Fin Work
in Building Oar Water
Foreman Tom Baird announced
the completion of Maupin' new
reservoir Tuesday evening, the last
of the concrete having been poured
that day. Work of relaying the
pipe lines from the rams will be be
gun immediately and hustled along,
it not being the intention of depriv
ing citizens of water any longer
than absolutely necessary.
Since work begun on the reservoir
reme time in March, it has byen
done as fast at possible. We a, icr at
times was responsible for delays,
while the non-arrival of gravel was
the source of tome time lost Not-
l withstanding those handicaps Mt.
! Bair kept at work and completed the
big tank in record time, The reser
voir will hold 350,000 gallons f
water and this will be augmented by
the capacity of the old reservoir. -Mr.
Baird installed measuriruj
weirs in the new tank and now it b
possible to learn just exactly how
! much water is being pumped thereto,
A fence will be constructed around
the new work, this being done to
keep out contamination resulting
from grazing stock. The work of
relaying the pipe lines will not take
long, it being figured that it will be
completed in less than a week after
