A. C. Gilbert, a student of Pacific Uni
versity as well as a member o f the Mult
nomah Amateur Athletic Club, and one
o f the most promising young athletes in
the state, succeeded in winning a place
on the gymnastic team at the annual
try-outs at Chautauqua N.Y., this summer.
One hundred and seventy contestants
entered the try-outs, which were open to
both professionals and amateurs, and Gil
bert's success in making one of the team
of five, picked from 170 of the best men
of the country, is a creditable record.
Those who won places with Gilbert
were: Dr. Anderson, physical director of
Yale; Dr. May. physical director o f the
University o f Michigan; Dr.Clap, physical
director o f the University o f Nebraska,
and Champion Moyser, o f New England.
These try-outs are the leading athletic
events at Chautauqua, and are annually
contested by many of the physical direct
ors and other leading athletes o f Eastern
universities. The team gave its first ex hibition at the assembly amphlt
heater on July 19, nearly 20,000 peoplebeing in attendance.
Gilbert was a student at Pacific University, at Forest Grove, playing
quarter back on the ’Varsity eleven during the past year, and is spending
his summer vacation at Chautauqua. He holds several good records at
the present time, and bids fair to be a leader in the Valley intercolleg
iate track meets next year. H e is a son of Frank N. Gilbert o f Portland.

Road Supervisor H. H. Clark through
the donation work has put out 1187
yards of rock on the Gales Creek and
Thatcher roads. The cost to the county
was $421 for crushing the rock, whica
was given as a subsidy to induce the
farmers to subscribe for placing it on
the roads. Besides this lasting im
provement the regular work of grading
and ditching was done at an addltionaj
expense o f about $400. The cost was
only about 40 cents a yard, a good
piece of work cheaply done and very
much to the credit of the supervisor.
