10 VISITTHE BORDER
Everything That Would Make
A Noise Turned Loose
San Antonio, Texas, July 4. While
a "sane Fourth" was being observed
back home, the several thousand na
tional guardsmen distributed along the
Mexican border from Brownsville to
El Paso joined civilians and United
States regulars in a celebration that
called for the burning of lavish quan
tities of black, smokeless and blasting
powder and even dynamite.
Carranza authorities in the Mexican
towns on the Kio Qrando anticipated
the annual "fiesta" incident to the
"quatro do Julio" of the crazy grin-
goes, and the turious cannonade that
began with the Btroke of midnight
caused no fear that the American ar
my was starting an artillery prepara
tion for a general advance.
The centers of noise were the big
military camps at Fort Ham Houston,
Brownsvilie, Laredo, Eagle Pass and
El Paso. But smaller towns and lit
tie hamlets with garrisons of only a
handful of soldiers contributed their
quota to the pandemonium. Round af
ter Tound was fired in the air from
rifles and pistols, while the three inch
field pieces barked a single salvo ot
blank charges at dawn.
After the first noise making spreeB
early today, soldiers and civilians
alike settled down to lesser ct torts.
Fire crackers, "nigger chasers" and
the time-honored anvils got their
chance, in the larger places, formal
speech making programs were run oil
and athletic contests and baseball
games filled in the day. Special
menus were served in all the military
enmjis. Municipal fireworks displays
will be staged tonignt.

Percentage of Attendance
High and Length of Term
That tbe public Bchools of Morrow
County are making steady progress is
shown by the annual report of Countv
Superintendent S. E. Xotson, which has
just been filed with Superintendent of
Public Instruction J. A. Churchill. The
report shows that the average lenirth
of the school term just closed, was
nearly two weeks longer than that for
the year 1915, and the percentage of
attendance was 95, showing that the
pupils attended school regularly. There
was also an increase in the salaries paid
teachers. Female teachers received an
average of $69.25 per month, an in
crease of $3,70 per month over the
salary paid in 1915, while the salaries
of principals was increased from $125
per month in Jill.) to $154.35.
In his annual report, Superintendent
Notson made several recommendations
First: The minimum term of Behool
should now be made eight months.
Second: Whatever practicable.
especially in the consolidated rural
schools, 0ne or more teachers should be
employed for 12 months in the year.
These teachers should use the usual
vacation period in supervising the in
dustrial work of the pupils and in as
sisting the entire community in solv
ing the community problems. Some
form of extension work should be car
ried on during this period, and, in fact,
throughout the year. Dunng the va
cation period, except during the busy
harvest time, there might be one or
two half-day sessions of the school for
the purpose of making the summer
work more effective. The older people
might also attend these sessions.
Third: The high school tuition tax
should be levied upon the State as a
whole, since the pupil may attend any
Fourth: . Provision should be made
by law for including all unorganized
territory within school districts, other
wise making it possible to make the
property within such territory bear its
just share of taxation.

Willapa Harbor Pilot: The Nnhcetta
Clam Cannery company of Nahcotta
closed the extended season last Wednes
day with a season's pack of approxi
mately uooo cases, or aproximately
432,000 of what, is known as No. 1
cans. During the season about 30 peo
ple have been emploved. This has fur
nished a very substantial payroll to
the residents of that town. The value
of the cannery to the town may be es
timated by the statement that the pay
roll for May amounted to $3000. Mr.
Northam says that the June payroll will
exceed this amount. The season had
been extended from June 1 to June 21
awing to the lateness of the Bcason and
the coo spring and summer. Needed
repairs and overhauling of the plant
machinery will be made during the clos

Monmouth, Ore., July 2. The sec
ond week of tho summer course at the
Oregon State Normal school closed with
a total enrollment of seven hundred

building. Mnny students who do not

work and her visit was appreciated
very much. After the business session
