ST. HELENS HIGH
. LOSES FIRST GAME
(By Professor Spiess)
Clatskanle and St. Helens high
schools will cross bats at the county
fair grounds next Saturday April 16,
in what will be the second g.me
season of the local nine. St. Helens;
chances of success will depend large
ly upon the work of the batteries,
which proved the weak spot in the
game with Columbia.-
All kinds of baseball were display
ed against Columbia University last
Saturday, the visitors winning 17 to
3. However, the high school showed
well at bat. and with more experience
may do well on the defensive also.
Hill's, fielding and the box-work of
Joe, who twirled the1Trst two inn
ings, were the. outstanding features
of the locals playing.
St. Helens lineup was as follows:
Anderson; c; Olson, p; Kiblan lb;

CHARGE IS FALSE,
Articles in Portland News Exagger
ate and Misrepresent Say City Of
flclnls. Aim to Have Highway
Safe Says Mayor Watts.
The people of Scappooso are con
siderably wrought up over certain ar-.
tides which recently appeared in the
Portland News relative to the enforc
ing of tho speed ordinance in the
town of Scappooso. Mayor Watts
said the charges made by the News .
were false in every iicrtlcular and
councilman E. E. Wist expressed the
tame opinion except in a more forci
ble manner. The assertion of the
News that the speed cop and Justice
were getting rich on the fines and
worked on a commission basis is not
true, Mr. Wist said. "We pay our city
recorded a monthly nalary and speed
ctp Weigle is also hired by the month
and on a flat salary. We hired him
as Scappoose speed cop on the recom
mendation of Columbia county former
sheriff and we are satisfied that Wei
gle has dono his duty as he saw it.
All this talk about pinching motorists
eoing 20 miles per hour is rot.
The records show that the average
speed of those arrested has been In
excess of 27 miles per hour. The
maximum speed was 45 miles iper
hour and the minimum 23 miles and
the latter was a motor cycle man
who had been doing 40 to 60 and had
slowed down to 23 when he was
pinched. The maximum fine was $25
and that was made so the party coula
appeal and was at his request. The
fines have ranged from $3 to $15 and
tho average has been less than $10.
The town of Scappoose hasn't been
.Tetting rich on fines paid by motor
ist; in fact, the fines have been just a
little more than the expense of the
speed cop and the upkeep of his ma
chine." The people of Scappoose resented
the purported statement of Sheriff
Wellington but it appears that Joe
Keller, automobile theft inspector of
the Portland police department, gave
the interview Instead of Wellington.
Mr. Wellington stated to the Mist
that he told the News and Kellar that
I he was going to look after tho high
way in me county ana naa notmng io
do with the enforcement of the Scap
poose ordinances. lie also said that
