Vernonia History
To Be Dramatized
In School Pageant
—o---
A pageant dramatizing the his­
tory of Vernonia and the upper
Nehalem valley from the time
that the first settlers came in
1874 will be presented by the
sixth and seventh grade auditor­
ium sections in the Washington
grade school auditorium today at
2 p. m. There will be 60 in the
cast, directed by Willard Berg.
The first scene will represent
an Indian scene before the com­
ing of the whites. Scene 2 will
have for its setting a schoolhouse
in Riverview, the first to be
built here, and scene 3 will rep­
resent a pioneer reunion in 1940.
The characters will represent
early pioneers. The writing and
production of the pageant is en­
tirely the work of the pupils, bas­
ed on information gained from
talks by pioneers. The perform­
ance is open to the public and is
free.
Union Oil Co.
Reopens Station
Here Next Monday
The Union Oil Co. will reopen
its station in Vernonia next
Monday under C. H. Jarvis as
resident agent. Mr. Jarvis was
transferred from Clatskanie.
Arrangements for the reopen­
ing were made this week by O.
Oberg of Portland, division sales
manager, and P. N. Schnell of
Vancouver, district sales mana­
ger, who looked the territory
over and decided that prospects
in Vernonia warrant the reop-
ening of the station.
Mr. and Mrs. Jarvis are living
in the Ovesen house next to the
high school gymnasium.

Five Local Men
View Big Road
Project Wednesday
Five local men, J. W. Brown,
T. M. Crawford, J. W. Nichols,
Lester Sheeley and B. F. Rog-
ers joined with about 35 other
residents of the County in in­
specting the Spitzenberg-Vernon-
ia and Apiary-Nehalem road pro­
ject Wednesday.
They found that grading had
been commenced at Camp 2, out
of old Wilark, where a bulldozer
and steam shovel were working,
at Apiary, where there was a
shovel, and at Chapman, where
there was a third shovel. About
a mile of right of way had been
cleared at each of these places.
The link under construction
between Camp 8 and Chapman on
the Spitzenberg-Vernonia part of
the project is 9 miles long and
between the Nehalem highway
and Apiary is 13 miles. The cost
is estimated at $800,000 from
federal funds and $37,000 from
county funds. J. H. Gallagher is
the engineer in charge.
District 47 Gets
Big Turnover of
Delinquent Taxes
—o---
A delinquent tax turnover of
$8,960.59 for this quarter was
reported to Thomas C. Graves,
clerk of School District. 47, by
the county treasurer this week.
Except for the recent pay­
ment of delinquent taxes by the
Oregon-American Lumber corp­
oration this is the largest turn­
over of delinquent taxes enjoyed
by the local school district for
many years.

gation on the farmers signing
them but will put them in a pos­
ition for a grant if they can
qualify under the agricultural
conservation plan.
Arrangements are also being
made for those who wish to
sign up applications at the coun­
ty agent’s office in St. Helens

The committee in charge of
sign-up meetings in the Nehalem
