Last Friday and Saturday, the
tenuis clubs of Milwaukie and
Oregon City held a dual tourna­
ment on the former’s courts.
As Estacada now has three
good courts, belonging to the Es­
tacada Tennis Club and the Es­
tacada schools and has a number
of good tennis players, arrange­
ments are being made to chal­
lenge the winner of the Milwau-
kie-Oregon City tournament.
If there are other tennis organ­
izations in other parts of Clacka­
mas County, it would be a good
idea to stage a county tourna­
ment at Estacada, where t h e
club’s courts are extra good and
with the park adjoining, a pleas­
ant day or two could be spent.

The Circus Is Coming Tomorrow
“Oh. I suppose we’ll have to
take the children to the circus
this year” ; has been a common
remark in this town lately. So
next Friday, September 8th, a
good many local children, rang­
ing in ages from 2 to 70 years
will go to see the big Barn urn

The kids of this generation are
not as well acquainted with the
wonders of the circus, as were
their parents, for t o d a y the
youngsters get their thrills from
the movies, the vaudeville shows
and the like; yet nothing will
compare with the typical circus,
with its menagerie, its big rings,
its clowns, its side-shows and
that smell of saw-dust and pink
lemonade, the memory of which
stays with us long after the time
when our own children are stand­
ing agape before the circus post­
