City Superintendent Him Eight Ilea wjiim For Ijirgo rorcentngu of luplN Wio AVcro ConiM- tioiutl or Clci Flunks. (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 in half. 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 on attendance. 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 year. '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 tendance records. 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.

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 ed promptly. 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.
