Five men of Viola left Satur­
day for the Siletz Indian Reser­
vation. They returned Monday.
These men, whose names are
withheld, made the trip to obtain
homestead locations and if suc­
cessful, as will be decided next
Saturday at Portland, will be
pleased to reveal their identity.
The trip was a hard one, but the
hopes ot success, overshadowed
the bad travelling.

Our newly appointed road su­
perintendent, T. A. Roots, in­
spected the big slide on the River
Road last week. He informed
us that he will visit the road dis­
tricts in different sections of
Eastern Clackamas soon and en­
deavor to find out the particular
needs o f each one. He hopes to

long connected chain of road will
be strengthened if it is possible
to find means to do so.
Roots also stated that he does
not expect to just hang his feet
on the office desk in Oregon City
and collect his salary, but intends
