f j r t h e law has been repealed,
it found favor in manufacturing
circles and it is astonishing the
amount in dollars and cents, it
is claimed, was saved thereby.
But the farmers and some oth
ers were dead against it and so
it has been repealed. The other
countries which adopted it, show
no disposition to repeal it, ¿o
s »me substantial advantage must
be derived from it. Better turn
the clock back when going to
bed Saturday night.

Monday night, Octoober 27th,
Mr. Taylor will give an entertain
ment at the high school auditor
ium. Mr. Taylor is well known
in Estacada and the announce
ment of his coming is received
with joy by his many friends!
Admission prices of 25 and 35
cents will be charged.
The freshmen class has raised
it’s number by two: Walter And
erson and Irvin Cadaneau. And
erson is going out for football,
and it is hoped that he will devel
op into a good man for line work.
The Freshie’s have sent away
for their class pennant and are
very proud of the fact. The col
ors are to be purple and white.
The Sophs claim this year’s class
is the greenest bunch yet, but
just the same they have the good
old E. H. S. spirit having three
representatives on the football
The E. H. S. squad scheduled
a game with Gresham last Friday
but they backed out therefore
forfeiting the game to our boys.
Saturday our men traveled to
Salem and got beat to the tune of
45 to 15. Vernon Hassel, who
was driving one of the cars, had
a smash up in Oregon City but
none of the passengers were hurt
another car was hired and they
relayed on into Salem. The coach
wants a game Friday, on the
home field and claims we are go
ing to win. From what we know
now of our coach we are sure that
our boys will win for what he
says he means. He is getting out
in a uniform himself and helping
the “scrhbs” rough up the first
line men. The other night he re
ceived a bum eye as a result of
the scrimmage but this only made
him play better, he’s game fel
lows he’s game!
We are sure of at least two
more games this season. Hood

' HIGHER RATES
At the meeting called last Mon
day night to consider the steps
to be taken in view of the Tele
phone company having applied to
the public service commission
for authority to increase its rates
it was voted to file a protest with
the commission and demand a
public is not disposed to pay in
creased rates at present, owing
to the poorness of service and
equipment. There is however,
no desire to bankrupt the com
pany, and if it can prove that it
is impossible to do business and
earn a reasonable return at pres
ent rates, maintain and keep up
its equipment and render ade
quate service, it is probable that
the public will acquiesce with
good grace. But they first have
to be shown

ing later, and opportunity will be
given all those Interested to ai-
