The annual school election vat held
Monday afternoon. Three candidates
were nominated for director with T.
E. Broylea reelected for another term
of three years Results were as fol
lows: T. E. Broyles 29, Clarence Ber
ber 18, Paul M. Smith 15. All three
are rood men but the fact that Broyles
had already been director for two
terms and knew school affairs held
weight with the community. It is a
thankless position at best and a po
sition few men want. Much censure
is received by the board members and
little praise. This particular com
munity seema to be out of harmony
on many school questions but it is
hoped that we may have a little bet
ter cooperation between teachers and
patrons, a little more charity, a little
less blame and criticism, that we may
start the new school year with a clean
slate and all work for the best in
terests of-the communiy and of our
greatest asset, our children.

The modern, short-boil method
of making jams and jellies with
(Jerto delights women everywhere
because it is so simple, so sure, so
practical and so improves the color
and flavor of their jams and jellies.
With Certo your fruit jells per
fectly every time, with only one or
two minutes' boiling. This saves
the bright color and delicately lus
cious flavor of your fresh fruit and
gives you a larger amount of jam
or jelly from your fruit hecause
you save all the juice which used
to boil away,
Women who have figured the cost

Boardman did herself proud on
Sunday when she entertained the
members of the land settlement com
mittee from the Portland chamber of
commerce. Not since- the barbacue
have we attempted anything to equal
it. A large "welcome" sign and" Old
Glory floating in the breeze hung at
the entrance to the Porter ranch
where the picnic dinner was held.
Long tables Bet in the shade of the
trees, loaded with good things made
a beautiful setting, the weather man
was kind and the day ideal, the after
dinner speeches short, snappy and
interesting. S. H. Boardman was the
chairman and introduced the speakers.
Norma Gibbons gave a recitation,
Whitney Bois chairman of the land
settlement committee, spoke briefly
telling of Portland's interest in the
development of the interior, and told
of the work of the committee. He
expressed thanks for the fine enter
tainment provided. Col. E. E. Faville,
editor of Western Farmer, gave a
clever talk. Marshall Dana, president
of the Umatilla Rapids association,
and associate editor of the Oregon
Journal, spoke of the future of this
section. The members of the com
mittee who had this "in charge all
worked hard, but the result was a
splendid example of what cooperation
will do. Mention should be made of
the music of the Irrigon boys' band.
These young lads played very well and
with their leader deserve much credit.
Mr. Porter assisted greatly in helping
make the day a success. The Fort
land visitors were taken over the pro
ject in the morning.
