NUMBER 40 NEWPORT The Women's Civic Improve ment Club Mrs. Dave Harding president is engaged in improv- I ing the city park. Four teams ; under the direction of Joe Park- hurst road supervisor are engag- ea m scraping sand off the hill on the west side of the park to fill the lily pond as it used to be called, so as to raise it up out of the water about four feet. The pond is now about two thirds filled and it wont take long to fill the remainder and the park "with its beautiful surroundings is the prettleBt In the county. It , is the intention of the Club to place a living fountain n the cen ter lof the park and this will add ' much to its usefulness and at traction. After the hill is grad ed down, a pavillion will be placed on the ground. A build ing large enough to hold com munity fairs and to accommo date public assembly3 that may meet there. Whore this bulldirg is to be put up, gives a-splendid view of the Pacific ocean and surrounding country. This park contains four acres donated by the late Samual Case to the city. It is now valuable and the. name ought to be changed from the City to Case Park to perpetuate the memory of the donor. The money to make this Improve ment is raised by giving public entertainments. Newport con tinues her improvements right along and still keeps from mak ing more debt. The Women of Woodcraft will give a Thanksgiving turkey din r.er at the banquet room of the I. O. O. F. Hall Thursday 'even ing the 23d; and a dance at night in the Rod and Gun Club Hall. A general Invitation is extended to all who may wish to come and onjoy this festival occaosion. The supper will be unusually fine as the Women of Wood craft don't make any failures. The Rod and Gun Club will al so give a grand masquerade ball and supper on Thanksgiving evening at their hall Nov. 30th. Prizes will he given to the best sustained characters. Tho Churches will have a Un ion Service at the Baptist Church Thanksgiving day at 10 o'clock A. M- A special pro gram will be prepared and every body is envitod. The election being over the people are quietly settling down to business for another four years. V.'hat 4he future has in si ore Tor us no one knows. Hut "we will patiently wait and see. Thore Republicans who voted for Air. Wilson because "he kept us o.it i" war" may live to see war wiih Mexico before the trouble is nettled. Murder, rape and crime still goes on In that country unabated. The war in Europe seems to be gathering momentum and no one knows where it will stop. We may have n world war before we get peace. The lowering sky looks dark and portentous. It is Bald Mr. Hughe.! w:i3 defeated because lie did not canvass the 3tates of California and Washington in company with Senator Poindex ter ami Governor Johnson. If these gentlemen were peeved at this and these states were lost to the republican column fo lark o" harmony, It may read o.i the flenublican party at s.nr.e future lime. As the Republicans had a splendid candidate it Bims !:i'i!;Hh that they did not. Etny together and elect him. The DeinccKits stick better than Re publicans do ad though they were out of power for many yours, did not fail to keep up their party organization and now that they are in the saddle for another four years, all emolu ments and appointments will go to deserving Democrats and the weak kneed Republicans who helped them In will have to whis tle. While the Valley is having frost, fog and cold weather, wo are having bright sunshine. FIECLES CREEK Trio? Our legal voters save one (your humble Bervant) were able to make use of the polling privlledge. I "goes" wita Taft and the G. O. P. I Bay Taft be- j cause the judicial mind as pres ident of these great united states appeals to me. At this 6tage of the game there is no room for bombast, brass bands or flam beau clubs. No time to squib away the vote which is a syllog ism. No time to place some pet upon a pedastal and fall down and worship him. We must stand by our party and the plat form using the elective merely as a medium or meap.s to the end. It la a beautiful thought that women now have the oppor tunity to help place the right personage in power, for when I was knee high to a grasshop per I attended with my mother a Women's Right Convention (at that time some what cen Borcd) at Portland, where Mrs. Dunlwaj ring leader, her sister, Mrs. C. A. Cobura, Mrs. Dr. Thompson and my mother were ' principles assisted by spirits of progress. One of these spirits was Rev. Elliot, D. D. of the Baptist Church clleganf, ello quent of polished ebony. For aught I could determine he was St. Claire's valet, and his mouth did not run on shutters. Harking across the years it makes me wioth that splendid plea and peroation for the en franchisement of women. The attainments of that black man born In slavery Bhame me as does Helen Keller, Booker T. Washington and Abe Lincoln.

TOLEDO 13; NEWPORT 0 The football game between Toledo and Newport played on the local gridiron, last Sunday, proved a surprise to everyone, and demonstrated that "pep" counts for more than "beef" in a football game. The Newport ers outweighed the locals con siderable, still they were out played in all departments of the game. The game started off with To ledo kiclfing to Newport, and the flrst few downs the heavy Newport team ploughed through Toledo's line for big gains, and ;'t looKect line an ea3y victory tor mircrs by the way thev tore through the Newport line for yardajie. Carson. McMillan. Al- tree ana bturaevant seemed to never tire, and made good sub stantial gains on almost every down. "Cannon-Ball"' proved that he was well named, as a real cannon-ball could not have wrought much more havoc. Sturdevant and Carson pulled off a double pass that mystified their opponents and netted a big gain. A foreward pass, Carson to Ofstedahl, gained about twen ty yards and paved the way for the first touchdown. The locals jgoaj Ull0 fmir t,m but tvdce lt j wag brought back for off-side iPlaying. nnd the Toledo goal line never was in danger. McMillan and Carson did the pinning for Toledo and got their punts off in .better shape than did Coffield iwho did the punting for New port.
