Devoted to the Interests of Eastern Clackamas County
V olume 13, N umber 33
The Community club held its
regular meeting 1 a a t Friday
night, at the Hotel Estacada.
The lobby was filled so that the
S. R. 0. sign was almost neces-
sry. President Stephens called
the meeting to order and pro­
ceedings began with an overture
by the girls' jass band. This is
a new feature and proved very
taking. The> band’s instruments
consist of mouth organs manu­
factured from combs and tissue
paper, dishpans used as drume,
tin whistles and piano. The girls
we r e heartily encored. After
the minutes were read and other
musical selections and reports
made, the speaker of the even­
ing was introduced, Mr. James
S. Stewart o f Corvallis, who
styles himself as a preacher of
the gospel of good roads, good
schools and good citizenship. He
was very ‘humorous in his re­
marks, and strongly upiieJd the
road and educational programs.
The meeting closed with an
overture by Messrs. Drill, Ahl-
berg, Chester Morgan and Mrs.
McCall. A straw vote was taken
for president possibly at large:
Hoover 33, Wood and Johnson
each 17, Lowden 4, Pershing 1,
Taft 1, Haiding 1, Bryan 7, Mc-
Adoo 4, Edwards 1, Wilson 1.

Interesting Letters
T he following letters were re­
ceived from Clarence Bullard son
of Mr. and Mrs. B, F. Bullard,
and his cousin Francis Kane:
“S. S. West Chatala,
Calcutta, India,
March 15, 1920.
Dear Folks at home:
We have been here several
days and will be here from ten
to two weeks yet. Our cargo of
salt from Spain will soon be un­
loaded and we expect to take a
load of coal from here to Colombo,
Ceylon. We stopped at Alexan­
dria, Egypt, one day, and laid in
Port Said three weeks, waiting
for fuel oil, and stopped at Col­
ombo one day. We expect to un­
load the next cargo in Colombo,
and don’t know what we will do
then. We ma> go back to the
States from there, o r w e may
stay a while and be sent home as
passengers. I don’t mi nd the
heat here but like the cooler cli­
mate a great deal be.tter. Every
thing is high in cost at Calcutta
now. From one half to three
fourths of the goods come from
the states. The automobiles are
as thick as in Portland and are
nearly all American machines.
There are five American ships in
here wi t h cargoes from other
ports. 1 went to the Zooligical
gardens this morning, and a inus
eum and Indian temple this after
noon. It is one of the largest
zoos in the world. They certain­
ly have some pretty birds and
comical monkeys. Several poi­
sonous snakes are shown such as
the python, boa constrictor and
cobra. The museum has every­
thing imaginable in it. There
are old stone carvings, skeletons
of different animals and fish.
The skull and tusks of one ele­
phant is about thirty feet long.
Two huge turtles stand five feet
high, six or seven feet long and
five or six feet across. The aver­
age turtle is only from ten to
sixteen inches high. There are
marfy different Kinds of cloth and
thousands of designs in hand
Clarence Bullard.
Francis Kane writes: “They
passed by all kinds of Creek,
English and other ships, and
nothing happened. When they
saw the West Chatala and the
American Hag, out came their
band on deck and they started
playing “The Star-Spangled Ban­
ner.” We dipped our Hags lyid
they kept on playing patriotic
American airs until they dropped
anchor at the other end of the
harbor. ”
The Johnson Meeting
The meeting in the Family
Theater last Saturday afternoon

son, was fairly well attended.
George C Brownell of Oregon
City and Sanfield McDonald who
is candidate for republican dele­
gate at large were the spell bind­
ers. Both made good speeches
