IlKND HOV HONOHKD.
Ocorgo Yandevert of Uend was last
week elected president of the Young
Men's Christian Association at Wll
llamette University, at Snlcm, where
ho Is a Junior In the college of liberal
arts. At tho regular election there
was a deadlock, there being two other
candidates besides Mr. Yandevert.
At a special meeting Mr. Vandevert
won by three votes. Ho Is a son of
Mr. and Mrs. W. P. A'andevcrt and advice which was followed to a letter.
"Laldlaw Thanks You."
Those words, displayed on a big
banner, was the keynote of the good
time meeting at Laldlaw Saturday,
so far as the hosts of the day wcro
concerned. Laldlaw was not only
celebrating Its good fortune In tho
passage of the Columbia Southern
$450,000 appropriation bill, but also
was showing Its appreciation of tho
laid its neighbor-, had extended to
ward the victory at Salem.
Hut as regards tho visitors to
Laldlaw and there were nearly 100
from Uend alone the slogan could
well have been reversed to read:
"Wo thank laldlaw." For never
were guests better care'd for, mora
enthusiastically received and ("Diets
those wonderful Laldlaw ladles,"
said everyone) more generously fed!
In short there was halt a thousand
people on hand, thero were many
excellent speeches, plenty of fun and
the best "feed" that eve"r happened
In Crook County. The festivities of
the day were materially enlivened by
the presence of the Hcnd hand, pre
sided over by its new leader, Ashley
Kpcaklng at Noon.
At about noon the first meeting;
was held at tho church, when J. N.
U. Corking opened tho program with
a welcome to the visitors, telling
what th0 appropriation to complete
the Columbia Southern project means
to the I.ald!aw country, and partic
ularly dwelling upon his appreciation
and that of the Laldlaw Development
League, of tho good work done at
Salem and eliewhero by tboso who
had labored for the bill.
Then came a special song, written
for the occasion by Mrs. J. J. Coen.
