the Many Guests.
Saturday April 30, has been chos

Dolph Thompson, who for several
weeks has been preparing for the
Hotel accommodations will be up to
the usual standard and every effort
will be put forward by the manage
ment to please patrons. The cabins
have been thoroughly renovated and
are in better condition than ever be
fore to serve the convenience of rent
ers, and camping privileges are ar
ranged so as to be satisfactory to all
who desire them.
The enlargement of the swimming
pool met with public favor last rea
son, and as usual this feature of
Bingham Springs resort will appeal
to all who go there for recreation
Trout fishing is better than usual
on the Umatilla river this spring,
and this fascinating sport is already
attracting fisherman to the Springs
and vicinity. Later hiking parties
will be formed to follow the river
trails and up mountain sides.
Opening night a big dance will be
given at the dance hall, a good "or
chestra having been secured for the
occasion. ' Manager Thompson is pre
pared to make this season the ban
ner one for Bingham. The resort
has always been popular with Athe
na people, and with the assurance of
a good road down Thorn Hollow, the
main disadvantage of the trip to the
Springs has been removed.

Query on the morning
"How's your peona buds?"
Miss Ruth Jackson, former Athe
na school pupil, is teaching the
Campbell school, 10 miles north of
Pendleton. Recently her school made
a display of sewing and art, which
is said by County School Superin
tendent Yeager, to be the best rural
school display he has ever seen.
Harvey Shelton, who formerly was
employed as barber by Lee White
head at his shop in Athena, died at
Bend of heart failure, passing away
very suddenly. The remains were
brought to Walla Walla, where fun
eral services were conducted from
the McMartin and Chamberlain un
dertaking parlors, Saturday.
From the sporting page of the
Oregonian and the columns of the U.
of O. Daily Emerald, the bunch up
here falls to the information that
"Scotty" Kretzer is considered to be
some goof as a pitcher on the Uni
versity team. In a game between
the varsity and Pacific University,
Pacific was leading by a margin of
four in the seventh when our Mr.
"Scotty" went on the mound and held
the enemy scoreless, for the remain
der of the game, which was won by
Pacific, 8 to 7.
Basket Ball Defense
Play is Simplified
There is much discussion over the
changes made in basket ball play, by
both coaches and players.
Limit of the basket ball dribble to
one bounce will make defensive play
50 per cent simpler, because a guard
hereafter will have only two threats
to watch instead of three.
This is the opinion of R. V. Bor
leske, coach of athletics at Whitman,
and well known in Athena, whose
basket ball teams of late years have
been among the most successful in
northwest college circles. '
"The change will take a lot of
kick out of basket ball and make the
man with the ball either pass or
shoot. As the game is now played,
defensive men must not only gutu-d
against the pass or shot, but the
dribble as well."
Both Borleske and F. D. Apple
gate, physical director of the "Y, M.
C. A., at Walla Walla, who is con
sidered an authority on the indoor
game, are of the belief that the drib
ble was virtually eliminated because
officials seldom call the charging
foul properly and thus have penaliz
ed defense unjustly.
A dairy and hog demonstration
train, to be known as "Union Pacific
Dairy Products Special" and consist
ing of seven cars, Is now arranged to
commence tour of Central and East

Weston Preparing for
Annual Meeting of Uma
tilla County Pioneers
The Weston Leader reports that
Sim J. Culley, president of the Uma
tilla County Pioneer association, has
announced his. committee appoint
ments for thirty-fifth annual reunion
of the association, which will take
place at Weston Friday and Satur
day, June 10 and 11.
The event this year is one week
later than usual, because of the late
season. Then again, it is thought the
Weston country may begin to need
more rain along about the 10th and
11th of June, and more or less moist
ure usually accompanies the picnic.
It is confidently expected that
members of the several committees
will take hold of their respective
tasks with the customary vim, and
that Weston will live up to the en
viable record it has made in the past
as host to the pioneers. The com
