Keep Out of the Rut
It has been suggested that an
appeal be made to the drivers of
vehicles in this vicinity to obtain
their cooperation in the upkeep
of our new roads.
All drivers are requested to
keep out of the rut, especially
during the winter months, when
the beaten track becomes a deef.
water filled cut.
The new stretch of graveled
road in Estacada is sixteen feet
wide and there is plenty of room
for the wheels, other than in the
worn groove. This same sug­
gestion should apply to all of our
rocked roads, for once the rut is
cut, the drainage naturally fol­
lows it and washes the filling out.
Let every driver this winter
bear this in mind and see the big
improvement that will be notice­
able by next spring. The more
road bed that is covered by the
wheel:, the better the road is
packed, unless they all follow in
the same old rut.
Wood Piles
One of the leading road super­
visors of this community has com­
plained, and rightly, that some
ruling should be passed by the
County Court forbidding the pil­
ing of cord wood along our main
highways, that is, up to and
abutting the graveled center. At
present no such ruling has been
passed, but it is likely to come.
It is a slight inconvenie: ce to
have to pile the wood off the side
of the road and makes it harder
for the loaded wagon to get back
onto the main road, but the pres­
ent custom is a nuisance, espec­
ially when a wagon is loading or
unloading and the passing vehicle
is forced to take to the mud to
get around.
In all fairness, a compromise
might be affected, with a given
boundary line, to confine the
wood piles.
High Schools Debate
Thirty-four high schools in Or­
egon will be in the Debating
League this >ear, with Estacada
in the Northern Willamette divis­
ion competing against Woodburn,
Forest Grove, McMinnville, New-
berg, Oregon City, Canby and
Football Beneficial
A few of the Estacada parents
are not in favor of football in the
Estacada High School. Inasmuch
as they are in the minority, their
influence will not be strong. As
a rule, the prejudice against the
game is due to a lack of knowl­
edge of the science of the sport.
Its main benefit, like all ath­
letics, lies in the building up of
strong, clean bodies and gives an
outlet for the superfluous energy
that the average boy has at that
age. The training and rigid diet­
ing, during the training season,
are a big asset, the call l'or quick
thinking and equally as quick
action and team work are its
largest benefit- To the parent,
who knows the science of the
game, the so called brutality is
lacking, and the game as played
by the high schools and colleges,
is the highest type of clean sport,
creating strong school spirit and
clean sportsmanship, whether
winning or losing.
