Mr. and Mrs. H. B. Hawking were
called to The Dalles last Wednesday

Political dope was rather badly up
set Monday, June 20, at school elec
tion when Chas. Dillon was elected
school director to succeed Leslie
Packard. L. G. Smith, Packard, Lee
Mead and Chas. Dillon were nomin
ated but Smith and Packard both de
clined. The vote was close, 40 to 30
in favor of Dillon. Mr. Dillon pre
viously served as director for a term
of three years so he knows all the
viscissitudes of the game and just
what, to exiect from the "mobile
vulgus" in the way of acrimonious
censure for which our community is
famed. Mrs. S. H. Baordman was re
elected clerk. She has been a most
capable clerk and has handled the po
sition splendidly. The infinite amount
of detail required is not generally
realized except by those who have
filled the position. Several other
names received one or two votes, cast
for sport. The detailed report for
the year was read and showed several
things of interest. There were 77
boys and 70 girls in attendance, 87
boys and 94 girls over four years of
age in the district. The value of
taxable property in the district was
$1,309,017. The indebtedness has
been reduced from $104,000 to $92,000
the past year. Although it was voted
to erect a gymnasium and construc
tion was started the financial report
showed that the budget was not in
creased over that of the year previous
because of the great decrease in the
cost of transportation.
The men of the grange were hosts
last Saturday night when they served
a delicious lunch of sandwiches, cof
fee, and cake to all present. Some
Grangers from Willows were present.
Mr. and Mrs. Albert Means and ba
