(From Thursday's Dally.)
Accounting for tho largo number
of failures In tho eighth grade exam
inations this term, City School Super
intendent F. Thordarson last night
gavoa report beforo the regular meet
ing of the school board. In detail
this showed the grades of each pupil,
tho -teacher under which tho subject
was taken, the attendance and other
such points. Of tho 23 children, who
took tho examination, S.6 per cent
passed, 09 per cent wero conditioned,
and 21 per cent failed.
"There arc eight clear cut reasons
for this," said Mr. Thordarson. Theso
ho enumerated as follows:
Conic From AH Over.
Children In the Bond schools have
come from 35 different states. No
two havo tho same courses of study
or text books and classes have been
disarranged when these- pupils havo
como into them.
A mid-year class Is generally weak
er than tho others becauso tho pupils
always have their year widely split
During the past year, due to illness
and a marriage, the eighth grade pu
pils havo had four different Instruc
tors. Miss Cane, who has the last year
pupils at the Held school, was 111 dur
ing review time.
Attendance Cut Down.
The scarlet fever scare cut down
Institute week came closer than
usual to tho period set aside for re
views. The questions In the grammar ex
amination on two topics were valued
at GO per cent. This Is giving unus
ual emphasis to single questions. By
missing ono of them a pupil could
drop below the passing mark.
A much more strict base of grad
ing tho papers was used in the county
school superintendent's office this
'Mr. Thordarson also called atten
tion to the figures showing that of the
flvo pupils who had failed, the high
est number of days any had attended
was 09 out of 90, and one had been
there but 32 days. Throughout
school they have all made poor at
I.cac In Gronlrtl.
Included in the report was an esti
mate of tho value of the buildings
and furnlturo of School District No.
1, showing a total of $92,000 for the
former and 18780 for the latter.
The board last night allowed cur
rent bills and attended to minor bus
iness. Miss Mildred Mersdorf was
granted a leave of absence in order
that she might attend the Oregon
Normal school. Mrs. J. C. Vande
vert was appointed a teacher In the
'city schools. She will occupy Miss
Mersdort's place In her absence.

(From Friday's Dally nulletln)
J. P. Reynolds, a resident of Hend

SPECIAL JtATF.HIAli NEEDED.
I'OKTIjAND, Fob. S. A census of
tho lumber production of tho country
during 1917 Is to bo made by tho
forest servlco In cooperation with tho
National Lumber Manufacturers as
sociation, as In past years. Ques
tionnaires havo already been mailed
to tho 30,000 sawmills throughout
tho country, asking that tho amount
of each kind of lumber cut bo report
It Is pointed out by officials of tho
forest sorvlco that tho lumber cen
sus is of particular Importance at this
time, becauso of tho largo quantities
of special material needed for tho
conduct of tho war. Several of tho
government departments, they say.
depend upon tho forest servlco for
data and technical advlea on subjects
connected with lumber. Slnco tho
entry of tho United States Into tho
war, this demand has been greatly
Increased. In many cases tho Infor
mation gathered by tho forest srovlco
In previous years has niado It pos
slblo to detormlno at onco where cer
tain classes of material could bo ob
tained In tho largest quantities and
consequently has enabled tho govern
ment to get In direct touch with the
propor mills without loss of time.
Becauso of unsettled conditions In
the lumber trado In 1917, It has been
somowhat difficult to judgo tho cur
rent production. Heavy calls for
lumber made by tho government havo
been partially offset by transporta
tion. Officials say that It will re
qulro a careful census to detormlno
whether tho output was moro or less
than preceding years. They point
out at tho same tlmo that the lumber
manufacturers can aid the work ma
terially by filling out and returning
promptly the questionnaires that have
been sent them.
BLAZE IN LAUNDRY
DOES LITTLE DAMAGE
(From Thursday's Dully.)
Fire of unknown origin broke out
in the basement of the Bend Steam
Laundry last night about 10 o'clock,
but was checked before more than a
few dollars' worth of damage was
done. The blaze was in tho boiler
room and may have been started by
a spark. One of tho washers going
home from work, noticed smoke when
he had gono soveral blocks from the
building. Ho turnod In an alarm and
with the assistance of tho hose cart
and several passorsby, the blaze was
extinguished before what might eas

Use this pure oil from corn for economy and
quality in deep frying, sauteing, shortening
THE Food Administration's plans for saving butter, lard and
suet the housewife's desire to p;et the most and the best
out of every dollar these are the main reasons for using
Mazola, the pure and wholesome vegetable oil.
Mazola makes fried food delieiously crisp and easy to digest
free from greasiness or soggincss.
And it is so much more economical than butter, lard or com
pounds as it can be used over and over again does not transmit
taste or odor from one food to another.
You can be sure of the purity of Mazola since it comes from
an edible source golden American corn.
Use Mazola for deep frying, samcing or shortening ami yon will find that
foods retain all of their natural flavor.
And if you want an especially delicious French dressing or mayonnaise,
make it with Mazola.
Get Mazola from your grocer in pint, quart, half-gallon or gallon tins.
The large sizes give greatest economy. Also ask for the free Mazola UooK ot
Pecipes or write us direct.
