All's well that ends well. But for
a time the other day Commodore O. C.
Dean had visions of spending a time
watching the sunshine back of the
crisscrosses of steel bars. Commodore
Dean is known in every state of the
northwest as a practical joker. No
local or Klickitat county, Wash'ngton,
citizen who has ever traveled by the
White Salmon ferry, was exempt from
some prank of his.
An old discarded search warrant and
a captured still, taken in some moon
shine raid, tempted officers to retaliate
for some of the moments of embarrass
ment they have felt at the hands of
the Commodore.
The copper container and its telltale
worm were stealthily cached in a
woodpile at Commodore Dean's home.
Then a posse of city and county offic
ers, hearing the search warrant went
solemnly to his home. They read the
warrant, with all the dignity the law
Go to it, boys, cried the Lommo
iore, "you won't find any moonshine
makers here. "
But in three minutes someone bad
dug the plant from its woodpile hiding.
the Commodore claimed that he was
being framed. All to no avail. His
wife, too, turned against him.
Off with him, oflicers. " she cried.
Urn has rieen away from home now
for the past three nights, and a good
portion of my apple butter has disap
peared. I'll not have that kind of a
man hanging around me."
"Now, Mama, Mama, pleaded Com
modore, and there was a touch pa
thetic, for the devotion of Commodore
and Mrs. Dean ia known universally
But the posse was obdurate. They
led their prisoner down to the sheriff's
office. A grand jury was just taking
recess. The prisoner was scanned by
many curious eyes. From the sheriff's
office Commodore Dean was escorted
to the office of Justice of the Peace
Onthank. The prisoner expressed a
suspicion that the signature on the
search warrant was not real. But
Judge Onthank, in his most solemn ju
dicial tones, announced that he had
signed the paer.
City Marshal Hart appealed for leni
ency. He offered bail for the prisoner,
in his recommendations painting an an
gelic character. The justice refused to
hear the claims of innocence as ad
vanced by Mr. Dean, and fed lowing a
severe lecture, assessed a line of 50
cents, which Mr. Hart paid.
Those who know Commodore Dean
predict that the first is by no means
the last chapter in the episode the of
licers have begun. The town is now
eagerly awaiting the practical joke
that will boomerang some day on the
tacetious officers.

It costs about $1,200 per day for ad
ministering the schools of Hobd River
county, according to County School
Superintendent Gibson, who Tuesday
was the chief speaker at the weekly
meeting ot trie luesaay i.unch club
"The cost will remain the same to
morrow," continued Mr. Gibson, "un
less some new method of conducting
the affairs ot the schools is devised
Mr. Gibson proposed that one rem
edy for more efficiency in administer
ing school finances would result from
the availability of larger units of tax
ation He expressed a belief in consol
idated school and a need for an euual
ization in school taxes. He cited how
last year the school taxes of districts
In this county ranged from 2 to li.'i
mills. Mr. Gibson suggests that the
state, county and district should each
bear a third of the taxation for school
hnancing. He cited that a law, ap
proximately of this nature already ex
ists in Washington.

flared Mr. Libson, "one of our high
costs oi Bcnooiing results rrom our
blue ribbon idealists. We have the
largest lot of blue ribbon idealists in
existence. We could not get along
without them, but one or two more of
them would ruin us."
Hood Kiver county at present has
but three one-room school houses left.
Ihere is a possibility that one of these
in Middle Valley, where the construc
tion of the valley trunk line of the
l,oop Highway will necessitate the
construction of a new school, may be
consolidated with some adjoining dis
trict. At Viento, where the children
of but two families attend school, is
one of the worst, buildings of the coun
ty, and it happens, Mr. Gibson says,
that it is the only school structure the
motorists, passing through over the
Columbia Kiver Highway, sees. It is
possible that the Viento school may be
consolidated with the Wyeth one-room
school. Mr. Gibson characterized the
latter as one of the best grade schools
in the state.
Mr. Gibson declared that Hood River
county folk had been stung deeply and
poisonously by architects. He charac
terized the Oak Grove school, despite
its 10 years of age as one of the best
m the county. The new Odell school.
be says is well arranged, but other
schools he declares are very poor. He
characterised as an abomination the
Hood River high school.
the Kussell Sage foundation in its
survey of Oregon schools ranked those
of Hood Kiver country seventh in the
state. The schools of Sherman coun
ty, Mr. Gibson stated, are first, accord
ing to the Sage Foundation report.
Mr. Gibson warned the people against
overly high taxes. Hi cited that Hood
Kiver county, at the present time is
suffering from the residence of people
who come here to live, buying a home,
but who leave their funds in more fa
vorable parts of the country, where
the tax rate is not so high.
"We need more people of wealth,"
said Mr. Gibson, "instead of a mere
increase population."
Mr. Gibson had the heartiest praise
for the teachers of Hood Kiver county.
He declared it an inspiration to know

Tuberculosis Clinic Successful
County Health Nurse Blakelv. who
arranged the session, reports that a
successful tubercular clinic was held
at the county library hall Saturday.
Dr. G. C. Bellinger, superintendent of
the state tuberculosis .hospital at Sa
lem, was In charge. Miss Jane C. Al
len, director of the state bureau of
nursing, and C. (). Bay, field agent of
the Oregon Tuberculosis Association,
wert' here for the clinic.
Mrs. lilakelv, reports that 27 men
and women of the valley attended the
tuberculosis clinic. Four were found
to be suffering from white plague. Dr.
Bellinger reported that the clinic was
one ot the hest he has ever held.
At noon the physicians of the city
entertained Dr. Bellinger at luncheon.
He addressed his fellow doctors and
urged on them the necessity of guard
ing against tuberculosis.
Murray Lists Traffic Violators
). L. Pierson, who will deliver an
address before the county teacher's in-
siuuio next weeK in an ettort to in
struct them in points children should
know on traffic regulations, after con
ferring with Traffic officer Murray,
has learned that 15 breaches of traffic
rules result in more accidents than
speeding. These violations are: ('lif
ting blind corners, parking on the
pav j unit of highways, driving on
wrong side of road, passing on blind
tun s, running motor out of gear down
hill, jockeying along the highway,
blinding headlights, passing in tunnels,
parking on wrong side of highway.
driving while intoxicated, defective
brakes, not giving arm signals.fdriving
with arm misplaced and lady at side.
Mr. Murray says all of these viola
tions are characterized in Oregon stat
utes as reckless driving.

The Dollar Mark!
What Does It Stand For?
An accountant named Lee, who had never heard of efficiency or taken a course in scien
tific office management, took the Spanish "peso" and abreviated it, thus It saved him
time. It pleased his eye and stood for value given for value received.
America liked and adopted it.
It is nearly a century and a half old now, but never has the $ mark represented so many
uncertain conditions as during the past few years. This $ mark now-a-days represents more
than ever before the policy back of every business.
In the J. C. Penney Company, this $ mark represents a policy of freedom, equal oppor
tunity and progress.
FREEDOM because it buys for cash and sells for cash.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY because every store offers equal and exceptional opportu
nity to its salesmen to become co-partners.
PROGRESS because the $' circulating through 312 stores in 26 States keeps pros
perity moving, bringing benefits to one and all.
