SANDY, OREGON, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1928
ANALYSIS SHOWS THAT
WATER IS POLLUTED
INSTALLED AT ONCE
The county health officer, after
having had Estacada city water ana
lyzed, recommended to the city coun
cil the immediate installation o f a
chlorination system for the purifica
tion of the water.
The water does not contain any
thing that could be classed as serious,
the News has been informed, but the
city water is badly polluted. The
chlorine plant advised will make the
water safe, but. it may at times have
a bad taste.
The council, at the meeting held on
Tuesday evening, ordered a plant in
stalled immediately that would rem
edy the condition.
Walter L. Wheldon presented to
the city fathers an application for ap
pointment as night watchman, which
was tabled for the present. The mat
ter of procuring a car load o f gravel
for city streets was left up to the
street and alley committee.
Mayor H. C. Stephens, Councilmer.
Osborne, Rose, Duus and Morgan
and Recorder Dale were present.
The need o f an adequate water sys
tem for the Estacada has been the
subject o f considerable discussion
for a long time. “ The present coun
cil does not propose to take any fur
ther action other than to make the
water safe,” a member of the boar<
stated Wednesday, “ as the term- of
the mayor and three couneiinien ex
pire this year, and this is a mattei
that will come up after the electior
o f the new board.”
FRED PROCTOR HAS
“ TOUGH LyCK" WHEN
HE STIRS UP HORNETS
F. L. Proctor, Sandy banker,
literally stepped into a hornet’s
nest Sunday while up the
were starting out nicely, Fred
and Verne Alt had each pulled
out a fish, when Proctor heard
something buz— zip— and h<
was surrounded! Hornet stings
are not funny, and when Fred
could not fight them o ff he did
the only thing possible to get
away from them— he jumped
into the river, after having
been stung several times.
He finally got rid o f the hor
nets and when he started to
pull out his fishline the hook
caught in the lobe o f his ear
and required a Sandy doctor to
cut it out.
Fred is undaunted, however,
and says he is going fishing
again next Sunday.
SCHOOL OPEN WITH
ENROLLMENT OF 217
Estacada schools opened Monday
