people directly. He indicated
the dangers of the latter, and
urged his hearers to seriously
study the problem of good gov­

was much commotion while he

of which was given up to general
amusement, a jitney dance being
held in the pavilion, and all the
stands and restaurants did a

was played on the school dia­

Estacada, the home »line winning
by a score of 17 to 3 in its favor.
A number of races and sports
under the direction of Fred Bar­
tholomew were pulled oil’ in «.he
Bark, and nine prizes awarded.
The day’s program was fittingly
concluded by a show at the Fam­

under the auspices of the Ameri­
can Legion.

severely taxed. A suffieent sup­
ply must be kept on hand in case
of fire. The city council is to be
commended for its action limiting
the hours for irrigation, and w*e
hope the order will be strictly
enforced without fear or favor.
