The resignation o f Professor
William Proctor, Superintendent
o f Forest Grove’ s Public Schools,
was accepted by the school
board at a meeting held last
Thursday, and H. E. Inlow,
Principal o f the Lincoln School
was appointed his successor.
Prof. Proctor has accepted the
chair of Education and Econo­
mics at Pacific University. Prof
Proctor was a member of the

Inlow, who has been elevated to
the responsible position as above
noted was Superintendent of the
schools at Cottage Grove prior
to coming here.
He has met
with great success as an instruc­
tor, and will no doubt fill his
new position with credit to him­
self and to the satisfaction of the
patrons of the district.

been teaching in the local schools
for a number o f years, has been
a ¡pointed Principal o f the Lin-

school opens in September.

same year she and her husband
crossed the plains to Oregon by
ox team, and they settled on a
donation land claim in the East
Gaston section.
They lived on
this claim until Mr. Hill’ s death
about 3 years ago. and Mrs. Hill

home with her daughter in Port­

Forest Grove was thrown into
a high state o f excitement Fri­
day morning, when it was learn­
ed that the clothing store of
John Anderson had been entered
Thursday night and a large num­
ber o f suits and other wearing
apparel taken.
The robbers effected an en­
trance by prying up on one of
the windows in the rear end of
the store building. Some instru­
ment such Las a crow-bar or
chisel, was used. The catch on
the top o f the lower sash was
loosened, the window raised, and
the theif or thieves crawled
through the opening and over a
work table.
The robbers were apparently
experienced at the business, as
they took time to select just the
suits which they desired. They
also made a selection o f choice
ather lines o f haberdashery. By
unbolting the back door from
the inside the robbers were en­
abled to get away with their
plunder without molestation.
The robbery was not dis­
covered until employes ot the
store went to open up Friday
