With the attendance below par,
owing to the showers, coupled
with the report that no baseball
game would take place last Sun
day, a first-class ten inning game
was pulled off, with Estacada
losing to the Log Cabin Bakery
team, in the tenth inning by a
score of 3 to 2.
Two of the visitors’ three runs
were unearned, being presented
to them on errors and loss of
temper, but the less said about
them, the better.
Maxmeyer, who is well known
to the local fans, having pitched
for various visiting teams in the
past few years, was in even bet
ter than his regular form, hand
ing out a sharp curved ball, that
fooled Estacada sufficiently, so
that few hits were obtained.
George .>mith pitched a good
game for the home team and
was seldom connected with fo ra
safe h i t.
Errors were more
numerous by the visitors, with
several overthrows o f first base.
For a time, it looked as though
the game would break up, ow
ing to a decision on second, but
both sides finally considered the
fans and after instituting a dou
ble umpiring system, finished up

, In the Clackamas County High
and Grammar School athletic
meeting, held in Canby last Sat
urday, under the auspices o f the
County School Master’ s Club,
Estacada won in the high school
division, with the local grammar
school taking second place in the
grade school division.
Nearly all o f the county’s high
schools were represented, al
though Oregon City’s name does
not appear, but a four man team
from the county seat did their
best to gain laurels.
Wagner o f Estacada won the
gold medal for high point man of
the meet, obtaining 15 o f Estaca-
da’s 38 points. Seal of the iocal
grammar school received the
same honors in his division, mak
ing 26 points of a total o f 32.
The respective standing o f the
schools entered was Estacada 38,
Canby 34, Milwaukie 29, Oregon
City 9 and Molalla 0. In the
grammar grades, Estacada was
represented by a four man team,
winning 32points, against Kelso's
35, with Canby obtaining 8.
The county seat and other
county communities may be able
to defeat Estacada with the bal
lot, but when it comes to athlet
ics, the local boys “ bring home
the bacon’ ’ every time.
The thanks o f the school are
extended Messrs Lovelace, Giv
ens and Ewalt, who took the
winning athletes to Canby.
In this connection, mention
should be made o f Ken Bartlett,
formerly of the E. H. S. but now
on the University o f Oregon
track team, who last week won
the throw in the dual meet
against the University o f Wash
ington, with a throw o f 135 feet,

The strenuous, nerve taxing,
yet joyous days of commence
ment are now upon us and while
the high school students and
teachers are experiencing the
majority of the load o f work,
worry and enjoyment, the grad
uation and commencement spirit
is present among the parents
and townspeople as well.
The commencement season,
with its round of social activities,
entertainments, exercises and
examinations, is the supposed
culmination and reward, for those
young women and men, who have
successfully weathered the four
years high school course, with
its work and play.

The commencement season
really began in earnest, with the
Class Day Exercises, in the
school auditorium last Friday
night, when the capacity of that
hall was overtaxed. An excel
lent program was given by the
departing spirits o f 1916, the
class prophecy given in the form
o f a tea party chat, being the
special feature o f the evening.
Last Sunday evening, at the
Estacada M. E. Church, a record
breaking crowd assembled to en
joy the Baccalaureate Service,
with Dr. Holmes, pastor of the
Forest Grove Congregational
Church, delivering the sermon.
Dr. Holmes’ address was one of
the most entertaining and in
structive ones, ever given before
a local audience with the assem
bly equally entertained by the
i musical numbers on the program,
including the songs of the Junior
Class Chorus, the Girls Quartette
and solo numbers.

While Eastern Clackamas can
hardly feel that it will have
proper representation among the
county’s officers for the ensuing
term, the people are truly thank
ful that the candidacy of H. C.
Stephens o f George, for the Re
publican nomination for the leg
islature, was a success, but can '
blame themselves to a large ex
tent for the non-election of other
local candidates, as the home dis
trict, as usual did not stand to
gether as a unit.
Among the Republican eandi-
1 dates, the following received the
party nomination and as little
opposition is likely to be ottered
at the Fall balloting, they will
probaoiy be elecled, with possi
bly the exception of W. A. Proc-
tor o f Sandy, who will have a
hard fight to defeat Uisley the
strong Democratic candidate. A
similar condition will probably
I exist in the final election for the
office o f District Attorney, as the

Hedges, will receive strong sup
port from all parties.
