refuses county eo-otu'ration in huilrihur highways hi lit

The governor recently .secured an allotment of the
forestry fund for the construction of a road between Ni
agara and Detroit on the north Tori; of the Wantiam river.
Home .(5000 or $7000 would he expended by the govern
ment and state and the county was asked to co-operate to
nit extent ol tfrJlH). The labor was to have been lurnislunl
by convicts. The road wo'uld open an undeveloped scel'ou
to settlement, and the state contemplated erecting a large
trout hatchery itnrt establishing a game preserve. The
county court refused co-operation, so the governor has
called the deal off and eastern Marion will remain isolated
end the county lose tho government money.
liovernor esl announces that he is through trving to

his energies to sections of the state where he will receive
"at least a little co-operation on the part of local officials."
Jackson county offers that co-oncration. Let tho uv.

Jackson count v has several districts that have called
meetings to vote special assessments for highways. Any
one of "them could use that government money to advan

Governor West should concentrate his road building
efforts in Jackson county, where the people will meet him

CHOSEN FRIENDS BASKETBALL
TEAM WIN FAST GAME
The Chosen Friends basketball
team or Bedford dercafed tho Ash
laud high school basketball team at
tho Natatorlum Tuesday 29 to IS,
In u one-sided gauio beforo "00 peo
ple. The-game was the fastest
throughout and tho roughest In
spots that has bceu plaed In this
city In a long time, and kept tho
crowd on edge from start to finish.
The surprising thing of the con
test was the speed or tho Chosen
Friends and tho helplessness of tho
visitors before rapid passing. Half
tho Hmo they did not know the
whereabouts ot tho ball and wcro
hnndicapped by uttempts at rough
work. A couplo ot players were
thrown to tho floor so hard that thoy
buniped their heads on tho floor with
u resounding whack.
At tho end or the first halt the
scoro was 10 to 12 In favor of Ash
lund, but the Medford team overcame
this lead and swept tho visitors off
their feet by a series of whirlwind
bankets and rapld-flro passing.
