GASTON TO MAKE CHEESE

A rousing meeting of the
commercial club of Gaston,
was held last Thursday evening
for the purpose of creating more
interest in the industrial possibil
ities of the district and for the
promotion of a greater consump
tion of “ Made-in-Oregon” pro
ducts. Addresses were made by
Col. E. Hofer, of Salem, and
Mrs. Edyth Tozier VVeatherred,
of Portland, in the interest of
“ Home Industries.”
Carmichael spoke about the
dairying possibilities of Gaston
and its tributary territory; E.
X. Harding upon the milling in
dustry; L. L. Paget referred
briefly to matters of local inter
est and Dr. C. E. Hawkes made
a stirring appeal for the estab
lishing of a cheese factory. So
enthusiastic did his hearers be
come as Dr. Hawkes enlarged
upon the possibilities of Gaston
as a point for the establishment
of industrial enterprises, and a
cheese factory in particular, that
a temporary organization was
formed on the spot, and over
seven hundred dollars subscribed
by interested ones from among
the audience. During the course
of the evening the Gaston brass
band gave a concert, and re
freshments, provided by Port
land manufacturers and import
ers, were served.
In accordance with the resolu
tions passed at the recent meet
ing of school electors, the Board
of School Directors have complet
ed negotiations for the purchase
of the Staver and Starrett prop
erties at the corner of Fifth
street and Third avenue South,
consisting of a piece of ground
326 by 200 feet. The price paid
was $2,950. This is an excellent
j location for school purposes, and
when the proposed grade school
| is constructed it will be in the
heart of the resideuce district.
At the board meeting Friday
evening the resignation of Miss
West as Domestic Science teach
er was accepted, and Mrs. Cot
ton, at present instructoress o f (
the seventh grade, appointed to !
fill the vacancy. The seventh
grade will be looked after by the
present force of teachers, the|
several divisions being properly
divided for that purpose. This;
arrangement will cause no loss
of time because of waiting for j
an additional teacher.

Many people were disappoint
ed Friday evening because of the
necessity for postponing the
“ Home Industry” m e e t i n g
which had been arranged for
that night in Vert’s hall. A
large crowd had assembled, the
picture machine had been set up,
and the speakers were all o n '
hand, when the sudden darken
ing of the city, due to the break- j
ing of the electric wires made it j
necessary to adjourn. Col. E. j
Hofer, Philip Bates, W. H. Mc-
Monies, Mrs. Sarah Evans and
Mrs. Edyth Tozier Weatherred
were all present and the pros

The Barber Asphalt company,
of Portland, has just received a
contract for the paving of the
Canyon road, which has long
been a bugaboo to the residents
of the Tualaitn plains and those
who have found it necessary to
drive into the Rose City. The
Canyon road is the shortest route
from this section to Portland and
its paving will be considered by
everyone who has had occasion
to fight the mud during the win

as one of the best acts ever per

be completed by the first of
March, weather permitting.
