C. C. C. Cruisers Making
New Survey of Forest
(Editor's Note: This Is the sec
ond of a series of articles dealing
with the work accomplishments of
the various crews at Camp Bull
Prairie, written by Bull Prairie
If anyone should happen to be
strolling through the Umatilla for
est, he would probably be startled
to hear an ocasional cry of "Yo!
Yo!" That, my readers, is the call
that the cruiser crew has tentative
Their work is considered to be
rather hazardous. Therefore, the
crew, which consists of Jimmy Di
Gregario, Dick Cardwell, Al "Tam
arack" Shastik, Izzy Golden, Izzy
Klopot, Maurice Shostack, Sam
Wilson, Eugene Kosciuk, Joe Bus
ceml and Jacob Witlin, were espec
ially picked for the work.
Up to the present time, the sur
vey crew has completed about 10,-
000 acres. All this work has been
carried on in the Umatilla National
forest which was last completely
surveyed in 1879. The boys have
discovered and corrected many er-
ors that were made previously.
They have finished all of the ter
ritory surrounding Camp Bull
Prairie and the Notch. From there
they expect to go to establish a
camp at Long Prairie, where work
of a similar nature will be done.
Under the supervision of H. C.
Heine, Jr., the crew has made rap
id progress. Right now they are
considered one of the most out
standing crews at the camp. The
transportation is ably handled by
Boyd Huston of Monument.
Districts Not Liable
For Bus Accidents
"A school district in operating a
bus for the transportation of pu
pils is acting as an agency of the
state in affording children an op
portunity to secure an education.
The district is acting for the com
mon good and without purpose of
obtaining pecuniary profit In oth
er words the district is acting in a
governmental capacity and is there
fore not liable for damages in case
This recent supreme court decis
ion is cited by Mrs. Lucy E. Rod
gers, county school superintendent,
who says further:
"However, action for damages
may be brought against the driver
of the bus in case of accident and
he can be held Habit. The driver
should be protected by liability in
surance, and the district should
take this into consideration in fix
ing the salaries of bus drivers, and
should require such insurance even
though there is no law specifying
the requirement of liability insur
The superintendent points out
that school busses are required by
law to display in a prominent po
sition on the front and rear of the
bus the words "School Bus" in let

must come to a full Btop before

It is hoped that the parents and
the public will do all in their power
to help that very worthwhile insti
tution, the school. Let's everyone
boost our school.
Because of the Increase in enroll
ment in the high school this year,
some rearrangement had to be
made in the assembly hall to ac
commodate the new students.
If the assembly hall were used
as a home room for all the students
It would be necessary to install an
extra row of seats. This would be
quite Impossible because it would
obstruct passage to and from as
sembly. The newly Instituted system pro
vides for about sixty students to
have their home room in the so
ciology and english rooms and the
other sixty students to have theirs
in the assembly hall.
When all the students pass in and
out of the assembly hall, it necessi
tates some confusion. With this
new system, however, we believe
that most of the confusion will be
done away with.
This year will be "an Era of Bet
ter Feeling" for the chorus class
because of the change in the chem
istry period. Last year chorus was
held in the chemistry room Imme
diately after chemistry, and our
crooners found the odors of gasses
and other chemicals rather dis
agreeable. This year chemisty is
the first hour in the morning and
chorus the last period in the af

men some idea of what they would
like and are suited for in the way
of a life work. The course of study
takes up the different principal
types of occupations and tells the
opportunities for advancement, ma
terial gain, and profit offered in
each. So far 22 students have been
enrolled In the class.
The Big Sister Movement
For the purpose of assisting the
freshmen and other new girl stu
dents this year in getting settled
and instructed in the ways, func
tions, and activities of the school
the "big sister" movement has
been organized. The idea of the
movement is not original since It
Is used in most large schools and
universities, but it is the first time
it has been adopted here. Eight
senior girls are acting as the offi
cial "big sisters. They can be
easily identified by the small tri
angular badge, in school colors
which they wear during school
hours, and they may be called on
for advice at any time.
To have their names printed on
