worthy takes his place.
Monday morning a patriotic assem
bly was held. The purpose of the as
sembly was to arouse enthusiasm in
the purchasing of War Saving Stamps.
The assembly was opened by the sing
ing of the Star Spangled Banner and
other patriotic songs. A talk on W. S.
S. by Jennie Hango was followed by
a discussion of Liberty Bonds by Wil
bur Hoyt. Then, D. G. Cruikshank,

Business Grow 99
The first motor tourist to cross the
Rocky mountains this spring, E. H.
Olmstead, en route to Corvallis to visit
relatives, arrived here Tuesday night
from Cambridge, Nebr. Mr. Olm
stead's plans of driving the entire dis
tance from the middle western city
were thwarted by the blocade of the
Highway on Ruthton hill. He shipped
his car to Cascade Locks and will con
tinue through to the Willamette over
land. Stopping for a vist with his old ac
quaintance, W. F. Laraway, Mr. Olm
stead stated that he had been 13 days
making the trip of 1K51 miles. He
came by way of Cheyenne, Wyo. The
motorist has been butfeted by tierce

eled for more than a hundred miles on
the crust of the snow. Despite the
winter weather Mr. Olmstead says his
car troubles were few.
Concert a Success
The Red Cross benefit concert given
last Thursday evening proved a very
gratifying success, both musically and
financially. Mr. Montieth, who has
not favored Hood River before, proved
a genuine treat. His voice is sweetly
musical, well trained and full of dra
matic expression. His stage presence
showed such ease and affability that
he was most pleasing to the audience.
Miss Woidcock is being discovered as
a conscientious and talented addition
to our musical community. Her num
bers showed musical perception and a
thorough knowledge of her subject.
Hood River is always pleased at the
opportunity of hearing Mrs. Sletton
and her rarely beautiful voice. Her
solos were well selected and rendered
in hei best style. The duets were es
pecially pleasing afid Mrs. Sletton's
clear soprano blends well with Mr.
Montteth's baritone.
The sum of $30.D5 was turned ovet
to the Red Cross by the music depart
ment of the Woman's club as the pro
ceeds of the concert.- Contributed.
Runaway is Spectacular
While Mrs. Geo. I. Sargent, of the
Oak Grove district, was delivering
eggs and cream on State street last
week her horse becoming frightened,
figured in one of the most spectacular
runaways ever seen here. With Mrs.
Sargent holding on the reins the horse
plunged off down the steep street.
Mrs. Sargent is accustomed to deliver
ing eggs at the home of P. S. David
son, whose lot extends the entire dis
tance through to Oak street, and the
horse turned in at the gate to the
backyard. Mrs. Sargent was thrown
free, am!the horse and vehicle, going
over a steep embankment, rolled over
a number of times a distance of lot)
feet to Oak street, where the rig was
slopped by contact with a little cherry
Spilled cream and broken eggs
marked the path of the vehicle, which
was badly smashed. The horse only
sustained a few cuts.
Bone Sells Corn For Seed
C. R. Bone, who perhaps has planted
more apple trees in Hood River than
any other man, finds corn growing
very profitable. On his Central Vale
holdings last year Mr. Bone produced
more than two tons of White Capped
Yellow Dent. Because of the quality
of the corn he is finding a keen de
mand for the grain for seed purposes.
It is selling fast at 10 cents per pound.
While millers are making offers for
the product, Mr. Bone ;says he will en
deavor to place his entire crop in the
hands of growers. With local seeds
men supplied, Mr. Bone is now supply
ing Willamette valley farmerB with
the acclimated seed.
Cascade Locks Man Released
Arrested at Cascade Locks because
of alleged disloyal utterances Charles
Ast, carpenter, native of Alsace-Lorraine,
after an investigation by local
authorities Tuesday was released and
allowed to return home. City Marshal
('arson, who had charge of Ast while
here professes the belief that the man
was the victim of a petty jealousy.
Mr. Carson says that Ast has pur
chased liberally of liberty bonds. One
of his sons was killed while fighting
with the French army, and the man,
himself, professes a strong opposition
to the policy Germany pursued in
handling his native land. The authori
ties telephoned to Oregon City, Ast's
former home, where the man bears an
excellent reputation.
