A family party of nine or ten, -whicb,
according to the head of the
party, included one family and one

by way of northeastern Oregon. They
were looking for a situation where'
they would have a good Bchool for ttd -children
and good hunting grounds '
for the two men within forty or "fifty
miles. The woman's part In the game .
probably, was to keep the children lu

Springfield on the map, as a place
that would probably serve both ob- -Jects.
But since, they had come into

them access to a better hunting range.
