Deitz, No. 13 Dover Students Participating in Athletics Must Maintain a Grade of 80 Per Cent - Coad Favors Ruuliy. The summer vacation is over and the ' school children of Hood River county are returning to tlreir books. The Odell, Frankton and Oak Grove schools began Monday, in order that they might be closed as early in the spring as possible. In the spring months, when strawberries are are being har vested the young people make ellicient pickers. With perhaps one or two exceptions the other schools of the" county will open next Monday. Hie 11 inn School will enroll its pupils Monday, despite the fact that it is labor day and that a few of the stu- lents have protested on this account. However, the work of the day will be no inure than registration and the as signment of lessons for the next day. h. h. (.oad, superintendent of the citv schools says that the 'parents f children entering the primury grades should use every endeavor to have them enter the schools as soon as pos sible. No child under the age of six is allowed to enter the school and none can enter two weeks after the begin ning of the term. Carpenters have been at work on the school buildmes this week, over hauling them and constructing shelv ing and arranging disks. The build ings are all being fumigated under the supervision of the city health othcer. Dr. Malcolm lironson. During the coming year the girls and boys of the Seventh and Eighth grades will be in separate classes. Ihe girls' classes will he in the Hinli school building, where thev will he able to conduct work in domestic science. The hoys, however, will con tinue at the l'ark Street building, since no work in manual training has been provided for them at the High School building. That no student shall be ullowed to participate in any form of athletic events unless he or she maintains a scholarship standard of at least 80 per cent on weekly markings is the eMeet of a resolution adopted by the city school board at its last meeting. It is asserted that the high school faculty and the patrons of the school commend the action of the board. However, a ruling of the student body lust year prevented any one of its members fiom taking iiart in athletics, when the scholarship fell below a grade of 75 per cent. "The pupils of high school will not be allowed to take any time from their studies for participating in athletic events," said Superintendent Coad. "Nor shall 1 give my consent to any student to play football unless he sub mits a written permission from his parents. 1 have always been fond of the game of football. 1 have played myself and the sport has its good qual ities. However, in the high school especialy, where it is impossible to make the members of teams maintain a strict training, too many students are injured. I believe the time is coining when all the high schools and colleges will take tap Rugby instead of the more dangerous American game. The high schools of this state should make the change." Superintendent ('oad has made an endeavor to get The Dalles High School authorities to co-operate with him in the matter of taking up Rugby. The members of the city school board are thoroughly in accord with the city superintendent s views on football. Hecause of the danger of football the student will have to procure written permits from their parents in order that the responsibility will rest with them.

Commodore Orchard Visits Valley. Commodore Mat. Orchard, who re cently retired from the United States Navy at Vancouver, was here Monday and Tuesday visiting his cousin, Dr. W. S. Nichol. He was accompanied by his daughter, Miss Marian Orchard. the retired naval commander was shown botli the Upper and Lower Val leys and was highly impressed with them from both a commercial and aesthetic viewpoint. "I have come in touch with Western people," he said, "from San Diego on the south to Seattle on the north and I find that one of. the significant things in all places is that they are pushing ahead. They are progressive. They have come out of the routine and ruts, so char acteristic of the East." Commodore and Miss Orchard left street, for the first time in thirty years, rive of the brothers saw active service in the war.

Morton, of the great Hood River apple district of Oregon, have arrived in Redlands and will make their home in Yucaipa Val ley, where Mr. Morton has purchased an apple ranch. In speaking to a Facts reporter today. Mr. Morton stated that he had visited the locality where Redlands now stands, more than thirty years ago, living here Jor a period of nine months. "I remember that there was no Red lands at that time, the only houses and settlement being known as Lugonia and all situated on the north side," said he. "I ploughed where the prin cipal streets of Redlands now are, and have chased the coyotes, rabbits, foxes and deer riurht through wbat is now your best residence section. ( came back to note the great development that has taken place. I expected to meet a few of the people that I knew years ago, but I have as yet been unable to meet a single man that I knew then. "After leaving Redlands "we went north and finally drifted into the great Hood River district, the greatest apple district in the world. Rut Yucaipa Valley has a great chance to become a great apple district, otherwise I would not have purchased a ranch in the val ley. The success of Yucaipa Valley, or for that matter any other district. depends upon the class of people who settle there. "The marketing conditions of the Hood River people ore absolutely the best to be had. A grower of apples is not allowed to touch his own fruit. It is all handled by the union or the packing association. The fame of the apples from there is known everywhere for, if you examine a box, or hundreds of boxes of apples, you will find they are all alike, no bail apples in the lot, everyone being just like its fellow apple. Such conditions of marketing existing in Yucaipa Valley will make the district above Redlands just as famous as any in the country." Red lands, Calif., Facts. LOCATION FOR HOMES CONTINUES TO LURE The Hood River Valley continues the goal of homeseekers. W. H. Johnson and J. Cruse made purchusei here last week and both will move their families to the community and make jierma nent homes. The former, who is from Philadelphia, purchased 20 acres from Cutler Bros., paying for it the sum of $:IO,000. The tract bought is comprised of about 7 acres of 13 year old stand ard commercial orchard, Spitzenhurg, Newtown and Arkansas Black tree, and the rest is set in rive year old com mercial trees. The 20 acres bought by Mr. Johnson has located on it the handsome Cutler residence, in which the owner and his family will live. Cutler Bros, purhcased a 05 acre tract, of which the 20 acres sold is a part, from E. J Young three years ago for a price of $32,000. The greater portion of the land retained by them is set in young trees and the remainder is devoted to the raising of hay. They will build a bungalow on the land re tained and make their residence there. Mr. Cruse, who is from Boise, Idaho, bought forty three and a half acres from A. B. Combs in the Willow Flat country. He paid for the land, which is in a raw state, the sum of $5000. He will build on the tract and begin at once to improve it. Both sales were made through the agency of Dr. W. S. Nichol. COUNCIL ACTIVE COLUMBIA STREET TO HAVE WALKS NEGRO BEATING WAY VICTIM OF BRAKEMAN William Rogers, a negro, suffering from numerous contusions about the head and body and who claims that he was returning from Green River, Wyoming, hay fields to his home in Vancouver, Wash., was taken from a westbound freight train, which ar rived here about the middle of last Thursday evening, by Marshal Lewis. The negro claimed that he had sus tained his injuries in an encounter witit three brakmn. He was stealing a ride and to prevent them from throw ing him from the train he had given them all of his money, which amounted to the sum of $2.50. After the train left Mosier, he claims that they at tempted to make him leap from the fast moving cars. When be refused they beat him into insensibility. A number of traveling men, who were awaiting the local passenger train here, when they heard his tale of woe, threatened to mix with the brakemen.

Pension Day Dinner Monday. Sent. 4th. Members of Canby Corps are requested to come with well filled bas kets and have a good time. Sunday Cosing Question Still in Hands of Judiciary Committee Henderson Will Inspect Sewer Work. The city hall was crcwded to capac ity Monday night at the regular meet ing of the council. Large delegations were present from the Heights portion of the city and the Columbia street district, where the city government will conduct a great deal of improve ment work. The street committee, reporting on the remonstrance tiled at. a prev'oua meeting by Columbia street residents, protesting against the proposed con crete walksjfor the district, aubmittej the statement that its members, after an investigation had found that a minority portion of the property front age was represented on the remon strance, and recommended that the walks be laid. The committee also stated that the old hoard walks were in many places inadequate for the needs of the residents. Attorney A. A. Jayne, representing'the remonstrating property owners, spoke at length to the council. He said that he and a great many of the residents along the street considered the old walks sulii cient to meet the needs of the district for a number of years. The recommen dation of the Srteet committee, how ever, was approved by the council. In order to connect the side walk on Cascade avenue with the landing of the stairway leading down to the O-W. R. & N. station, the side walk will be slanted. This will necessitate a retaining wall at the street curb. The wall, however, will be constructed by the railroad company. The council was presented with another petition from citizens of the Heights, who protested against the sidewalks in Sewer districts No. ti and 7. However, it seems that a majority of tins residents of that d istrict are in favor of the work of improvement. A number of those at the Monday night meeting , addressed the council and gave the action toward the street ' and sidewalk work their hearty support. Father Pius, of the Catholic church and Rev. J. 1.. Hershncr both gave it their endorsement. At the suggestion of A.W. Onthank, the ordinance, which provides for the work, will huve an amendment clause providing fcr cross walks. J. H. Gerdes, proprietor of the Gordes House at the corner of Cascade avenue and Second street was granted a petition, which asked permission to move the curb line of the walk to bo constructed in front of his property six inches into the street, in order that he may protect the peplar trees there. Whether or not the moving picture shows of the city will be allowed to open on Sundays is now a question for the Judiciary committee of the council to decide. The council was presented with a petition at the regular, meeting a week ago trom Monday night which was signed by 185 citizens and asking that the council close the electric theatres. At the last meeting a re monstrance against the former petition was presented to the-council. ' 'the re monstrance was signed by 312 citizens. The Judiciary committee will check over the signatures and base their decision upon the result. Louis A. Henderson was appointed by the council to inspect the work to be done in the construction of the sewers in Districts Nit. (i and 7. Mr. Henderson will it.ceive a salary of $3 per day for his work. D. Currier, Jr., was an applicant fur the inspection work at a salary of $150 per mouth. H. F'. Davidson whs granted an ex tension of time to place concrete side walks in front of his property. The extension was asked in order that he might seure iron trap doors for the walk. TWO WEDDINGS HELD TO PLEASE PARENTS To bo the bride in two weddings and the recipient of two wedding rings in ten days was the experience of Miss Sara Jennie William Kerr, daughter of Alexander H. Kerr and Mrs. Amanda Kerr, .who became Mrs. Kenneth II. Holbrook in a church ceremony Mon day night to please her parents, says the Oregonian. Mr. and Mrs. Kerr, while favoring the match of the young couple, both under 21, were displeased over the informal nuptial knot tied at Vancouver a, week ago last Saturday. The bride met Mr. Holbrook while he was visiting Pnrdham Kimball at Hood River, lust May, she and her mother also visiting there at the same time. In the Rose Festival, Mr. Hol brook returned to Portund and their engagement Boon followed. Mrs. Hol brook came West about a week ago and Mi.ss Kerr visited her. This seemed the opportune moment for Mr. Holbrook, who induced Miss Kerr to go with him to Vancouver and be married. They took Mr. and Mrs. Cunningham with them and, obtaining a license, were wedded by Rev. J. M. Cause there, the bride going that afternoon to the beach to join her mother. As soon as Mrs. Kerr learned of the secret ceremony, she began prepara tions for a church wedding. She had advised the couple to wait a year, feel ing they would then be of better age fur the step. Monday evening's cere mony was according to her wish and was one of the exclusive events ot thu season. Squaw and Pony Obstruct Road. B. E. Duncan and Chns. L. Wheeler, two of Hood River's realty men wcrt on their way to the ice cave the other day, says a Trout Lake dispatch, when a cayuso pony stationed itself in front of the auto and refused to budge. When the machine approached the pony, it kicked the fender, bending it out of shape. Where the two canw together, the road was very narrow and the autoists could not get around and were forced to retreat to Trout Lake. The pony was in care of a squaw but she refused to interfere with the freedom of the "cuitan" uuless the reafty men wculd appropri ate some of their hard earned money toward her exchequer and this they refused to do. Their trip to the caves was annulled.
