EVEN in war-times it is no sign
of a lack of patriotism to have
a good time; the fighting men in
France played baseball, in the
intervals of fighting, and of pre
paration. We're all a little more "fit
for our war service, whatever
it may he, if we find occasional
time for relaxation.
Interesting Figures Gleaned
For the year ending June 17, 1918,
there are 132 less school children in the
county than for the previous year, end
ing June 17, 1917, according to the an
nual report of W. M. Smith, county sup
erintendent. This is based on a census
of all children between the ages of four
and twenty years.
Just at present, there are 6,545 males
of this census age and 4,415 females, iu

Ilia country has a large male population
in prospect for the coming school years.
The army is taking a few of the male
school teachers in the county. One year
ago 73 men were employed teaching, but
now only 63 men are in the teaching
work. For the y-jar ending June 17
1917, the women teachers numbered 286.
During the past year, the number has
been 296 showing that the women are
gradually. taking up the work of men as
The districts in Marion county number
127, one less than for the preceeding
year. Thcro are now 136 school houses
in the county, an increase of three for
tho past year, but there has been only
126 in operation. This record shows that
while for the year ending Juno 17, 1918,
there were 154 school ho.i m opera
tion, during the past year 28 were closed
and but 126 in active use the past wn
tcr and spring.
. In the county, 20 districts had their
school open for nine months and one dis
trict for ten months.
Private schools in the county number
eight, a falling off of two during the
year. In these eight private sciioois, zz
male teachers and 36 female teachers
wora employed and ths attendance num
bered 632. That is, there are 632 child
ren between four and twenty years in
the county who are not receiving tlioir
education at the public schools.
While the percentage of attendance
ranks with the highest in the country it
has fallen off a little during tho past
v.oar. or the year onuing june 11, mil
the average attendance was 95 per cent.
For tho past year the-averago is 94 per
cent. This is thought to be due to the
fact that the war has taken many work
ers from farms and children of school
ago wore called out of school to keep up
the work. .
The estimated value of school property
has increased $13,411, during the past
year. For the year ending Juno 17, 19 17
it was $u94,7u0 for tho entire county
and for the year ending June 17, 1918,
the estimated value was $708,161.
From the standpoint of- salary, the
male teachers, has averaged a little high
er the past year compared to the year
.ending June 17, 1917. Now the average
for a man teacher in the county is $8S.
05, while during tho preceeding year the
averago was $81.37. He has mado a gain
of an average of $6.68 a month,
a month. During the year proceeding
Juno 17, 1917, she was paid an average
of $60 a month while the past year the
average salary for a woman teacher in
Marion county has been only .$62.40.Thi
figuro does not show the average of the
rural teacher ,as there an; many teachers
in Salem who receive more than $100 a
month, and this of course brings up tin
general average. -

Newnort, Or., July 30. Motorists
have been reveling in tho firm, well
packed roads, which have followed in
the wake of the recent light storms,
which were prevalent over the moun
tain during the last week. Jn a few
cases, where chains were sot used, some
inconvenience wis caused by skidding
but generally the drive has been made
by all without mishap. Weather condi
tions continue favorablo here, blight
mists appear in the early mornings but
by noon all moisture has disappeared
and the bright, cloudless afternoons
are passed on" the beach, in bathing,
hiking or more phlegmatic diversions.
The tides have been so low at certain
hours this week that autoists have' been
able to drive their cars to Agate beach
on the hard sand. It is possible to make
record Speeding along the shore without
experiencing the usual discomfort of
fast driving along the imperfect roads.
Not to be outdone in originality of
sports for the doloctation of the spruce
soldiers, Professor Robert Krohn, plry
rieal director of the camps around
Newport, staged a romilar prize fight
at the Soldiers and Sailors club Satur
day night. Besides the series of rounds
fought by outside talent, several bouts
wero engaged in by somo of the local
boys, which because of their amateur,
ishness created no . inconsidorablo
snort. Professor Krohn is gottincr the ro-

At tho South Beach camp, where about
4fin men are under the command of
Lieutenant HosUins, volley ball has be
come one of the most popular games
and there is plenty of good natured
rivalry between the opposing sides. A
series of ball games have been arranged
between the various camps and each
Sunday finds the grand stand at tho
city ball park crowded to tne limit. .
Several hiking parties have arrived
in Newport during tho week, having
made the trip over thd mountain "on
foot. A Salem party, consisting of the
Misses Bessie Wilron, Tna Proctor, Vida
Proctor, and K. McClelland, arrived this
week end, having made the trip in lit
tle less than three days. As in nil well
remilnted hikes, the usual ludicrous
happenings took place, although but
ono of these slipped past the censor.
One evening at dusk, when it wan no
cessary to find a lodging place for th
night, the only available covering prov
ed to be an abandoned barber shop. Not
to be daunted by any misgivings of the
location, beds wero made down and a
dreamless sleep was indulged in y the
