Discouraged Schools
Poultry Men Will Meet
Last Saturday Clackamas county
school teachers at their institute at
Estacada were told that in the
county as a whole are 90 one-room
schoolhouses. The little red school-
house still has its day in a portion
o f Oregon close to Portland.
Where one-room buildings hold
all grades it means the country is
sparsely settled.
Farms on the
rolling hills west o f the Cascade
range are dotted here and there in
the fir forest that yields sullenly
to the coming o f the plow.
Dr. W. T. Johnson, poultry path­
ologist, and H. E. Cosby, poultry
specialist, representatives o f the ex­
tension service department o f O. A.
C., will be among the speakers o f
the day at what will probably be
one o f the most important poultry
scheduled fo r Tuesday, February
23, to be held at the Maplewood
grange hall o f Barlow.
"Feeding and Brooding o f the
1926 Crop o f Chicks,” will be the
subject o f Mr. Cosby, who will open
the morning session at 10:00 o’clock
and Dr. W. T. Johnson will talk
on “ Chicken Diseases” at 11:00
o ’clock.
A luncheon will be served at
12:00 o ’clock by the women of Bar-
low, and those desiring to take
their own lunch are to be served
with coffee.
The afternoon’s program will be­
gin at 1 :20 o ’clock, when Mr. Cos­
by will give a second address per­
taining to the poultry industry.
This topic will be “ Problems Con­
fronting the Pouitrymen.”
A t 2:30 o ’clock Dr. W. T. John­
son will talk on diseases o f Laying
Stock, and their Treatm ent”
As many farmers o f Clackamas
county are this year carrying on
the poultry industry as a side line
to the general farm work, the meet­
ing has been arranged by W. A.
Holt, county agent, especially for
these men and~the""poultry~ fanciers*.
From 3:30 to 4:00 o ’clock there
will be a round table o f questions
pertaining to poultry breeding.
Invitations have been extended
to Marion, Multnomah and Clack-
amas counties as well as the other
raising is an important industry.
Now and again will be found
fields once cultivated in which trees
and brush are growing again
Houses once tennanted have lost
their paint and are gray beneath
the rain and sun. Here the job of
winning the west as hillside homes
is proved to have been too much.
Something estopped success. Some
burden was too heavy to bear.
Do you wonder that the teachers
in Clackamas county stormily ap­
plauded the proposal to request the
state income tax? For the burden
that is too much for the farmer
and causes desertion o f the farm
is, in Clackamas county as in other
counties, the burden o f cost as com­
pared with the production and pro­
fit. It is the burden o f tax, the
tax placed almost exclusively on
land and on home and on produc­
The one-room school is a sign of
the pioneer era, the symbol of
sturdy intent to provide the advan­
tages that will give the next genera­
tion a better chance. Ninety one-
room schools on the naturally
fertile lands o f Clackamas county
within a few miles o f the great
Portland markets, seaport, indus­
trial and transportation center tell
a tale thftt cannot be refuted. The
power to tax is truly the power to
destroy agriculture and to handi­
cap education.
And what is the
ultimate profit to the incomes that

ernment and the encouragement of

speaker by directors and teachers.

Three Links is progressing. We
have been known as just "Camp 8”
but everyone in our little city has
been so active that it is not a camp
any longer. Since the first o f the

hope to gradually build our com­
munity hall up until it will be the
pride o f everyone o f us.
Then too, we have our little school
o f which we are all justly proud,
due to the teacher, Miss Mary E.
Christianson, and hard work. There
are ten pupils which have their little
club that meets at the community
hall every Wednesday evening.
The ladies o f the community are
busy too. They are organizing the
“ 3 B’s” club whose work will con­
sist o f helping the community in
any way it can. This club meets
every Thursday afternoon.
“ 3 B's” club was entertained by
Mrs. R. J. Schaeffer on Thursday

The most exemplary character
that ever adorned vny era in history
and who received in his lifetime the
noble appelation o f “ the Founder
o f the Republic” and "the Father
o f His Country," was born in West­
moreland county, Virginia, on the
22nd day of February, 1732, ex­
actly 194 years ago next Monday.
His early instruction was domes­
tic and scanty, but full of good
discipline and sound principles. And
as his father died when he was only
ten years old, he had no subsequent
opportunities for acquiring a thor­
ough literary or scientific education.

And as the country was

He also directed much o f his
attention to the science of arms,
in the use o f which every young
man was insti ucted in order to re­
pel the incursions o f the Indians,
who were often led on by skilled
Frenchmen. At the age o f 19 he
was appointed one of the adjutant
generals of Virginia, which gave
him rank of a major. Soon after
he was advanced to the colonelcy,
and sent by governor Dinwiddie to

In the Spring of 1755 Washing­
ton was persuuded to accompany
general Braddock as and with rank
o f a colonel in his disasterou3 ex­
pedition against Fort DuQuesne;
and had his advice been followed on
Glut occasion the result would have
been different.
Three years afterwards Washing­
ton commanded the Virginians in
another expedition against the fort
which terminated successfully.
At the close o f this campaign he
left the army and was soon after
married to Mrs. Martha C urtis,,the
widow o f Col. Daniel Park Curtis,
whose maiden name was Dandridge
and whose intelligent and patriotic
conduct as wife and widow will ever
be gratefully remembered in Amer­
ican history.
He was chairman of the Consti­
tutional convention in 1787 and wag
unanimously elected the first presi­
dent o f the United States for four
years and was elected afterwards
to succeed himself.

With the P. E. P. Co., making
another cut in the passenger train
service and the freight train run­
ning on only three days in the
week, it seems as if the people o f
Estacada and vicinity had nearly
qeserted one o f their most reliable
and dependable servants, who have
so faithfully served them ever
since the town was first started.
It is certainly to be hoped that a
ook into the future will not reveal
a town devoid o f ample rail facil­
ities, that most essential require­
ment o f prospective industrial en­
terprises, a few o f which this town
and commercial club would like so
much to see.
This problem could be easily sol­
ved if the people and merchants
would give them their support, that

gently argue they are not entitled
