Members Endorse the Plan of
Constructing a Six
Foot Channel.
University City Would Improve
Channel Between Eugene
and Corvallis First.
Eugene, Sept. 24. This morning'
KiiKciic Register says:
Six fect of open river, or transpor
tation by means of a canal of
depth from Eugene to Corvallis
thence to ttie deep water harbors, was
the keynote of the commercial club
discussion at the tegular meeting held
last night.
The project was presented before
the club by Manager lJuryca of the
promotion department who read a
letter from Major Mclndoc of the
corps of United States army engi
neer, who outlined methods of pro
cedure to be employed in presenting
the project to his department for con
sideration. This would include the
compiling of data setting forth the
amount of tonnage available from this
section for river transportation in or
der to ascertain if the traffic to be
served would justify the outlay for
Attorney J. M. Williams voiced the
opinion that this was one of tin; most
vital and important projects presented
before the club for some time. In or
der that it receive consideration con
sonant with its importance, Mr. Wil
liams moved that a committee of sev
en be appointed to go thoroughly into
the matter and supply all the neces
sary information. This was adopted
and President Magladry made the fol
lowing selections: M. J. Duryea,
chairman; L. I.. Lewis, David Auld, J.
M. Williams. K. M. Jennings, C. O.
Peterson, C. 0. Korer.
A. C. lixon addressed the club on
the open river movement and brought
out some pertinent facts bearing upon
the necessity for water competition
in marketing the output of the upper
valley. Judge II. W. Thompson spoke
of the feasibility of a series of locks
and the placing of barges in commis
sion 011 the river.
In this connection T. S. Wilkes,
civil eiiuiueer, uavc some interesting
sidelights on river transportation ami
best methods of clearing river chan
nels of sand and gravel deposits. Mr.
Wilkes is (he inventor of a new meth
od of dredging and 11 is liis purpose to
interest the club in his device with a
view to assisting in rendering the Wil
lamette river navigable if he is given
the financial encouragement neces
sary to carry out his plans.
Bookstores Kept Busy All Day
Supplying Youngsters wiih
New Books, Etc.
The streets of this city were alive I
yesterday morning with hundreds of J
school kids on their way to the vari- j
ous school buildings of the city to
begin another year's work. Many of
the youngsters were going to school
for the first time and it took much
coaxing on the part of an older
brother or sister to get some of them
there, for their idea of a school was
in many cases, vague indeed.
However, after the youngsters had
been introduced to the school ma'am,
they felt a good deal better and their
timidity gradually disappeared and
when they wcrc dismissed for the
morning, the majority of them con
sidered themselves "regular" students.
One little fellow with golden hair
was seen trudging along the street
hand in hand with an older sister,
He carried a bright red apple in one
hand and when asked what he was
going to do with it, he replied: "I
am going to give it to the teacher."
Some diplomat, that boy.
At one of the public schools a group
of boys was seen putting a "rookie"
through a course of sprouts, which if
he passed successfully would entitle
him to walk the playground unmo
lested for the entire year. If the
"rookie" showed fight he was given
more of the dreaded initiation How
ever, it is all in the course of a life
time and no serious accidents were
reported from the schools yesterday.
After being dismissed yesterday
morning the rush on the bookstores
was begun and all day the cleks in
the various establishments were kept
on the jump supplying the kids with
books. Nearly all the children re
miiring new books were supplied yes
terday and the classes began their
regular work this morning.
One little girl was heard to remark
that she would have to get a wheel
barrow to haul her books to school.
Owing to the fact that the new
school in Hurkhart Park is not com
pleted yet, the various buildings avail
able were considerably congested yes
terday but this situation is being grad
ually relieved and in a few days plenty
of room will be had for all, a slight
reassignment being necessary at pres
ent. The enrollment of 924 in the schools
of this city on the opening day this
year exceeds the attendance on the
same day last year and indicates a
healthy increase in the number of
school children in Albany.

One Lady Has Hat Nearly Torn
From Head While Passing
Beneath One Today.
Many complaints have been heard
lately regarding the awnings which
hang over the sidewalk in front of a
number of local business houses and
many people have been made very
angry by having their headgear pulled
from their heads while passing be
neath them.
Several of the awnings are hung j
so low that when a lady of ordinary
height passes under them, her hat is
suddenly jerked over to one side or
nearly torn from her head, as was
i the ease this morning when a lady
I residing in this city chanced to pass
1 li.m-:iih one of them. She was verv
angry and expressed her opinion ol
such an outrage.-
The ladies are not the only ones
win have complained about the
awnines. however, for many men have
I ben forced to nick up their "lid" from
the sidewalk where it had been knock
ed bv coining in contact with the awn-
ing ' One man said that if his hat
w:'i knocked off again in the same
way he would use his pocket knite to
advantage on the canvas.
