Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily
VOL. V. NO. 91 ENTERTAIHED BY 25,000 CLUB REV. W. J. HINDLEY OF SPOKANE MADE ELOQUENT ADDRESS ON THE ELEMENTS THAT GO TO MAKING OF A MODERN CITY. "The eyes of the world are on the Wenatchee valley. The wonderful fertility of your soil and its matchless product, your big red apple, has spread the fame of the Wenatchee valley all over the civilized world. In a great part this is only a pass ing interest. Your apples and your booster spirit have pub lished to the world that there is such a place on the map as Wenatchee. It is up to the citi zens of this locality to crystal ize this interest. You have the conditions —the soil, the water, the climate, the sunshine, the location and all the natural ele ments that go to the making of a big city. With the spirit that I see manifested in your city during my acquaintance with yoiir people I have no hesitancy in saying that Wenatchee can be a city of 25,000 in 1915 and the organization of your booster club, in whose auspices I am here tonight will not be in vain." —Rev. W. J. Hindley, in his speech last night before the 25,000 club. If there were any hesitating ones, any pessimists, any who have the slightest doubt that Wenatchee might become a city of 25,000 or more by 1915, Rev. W. J. Hindley, in an elo quent speech last dispelled all doubts. It was a booster meeting, pore and simple, and the big audi ence which greeted the speaker was composed in a great part by men and women who were wearing the emblem of the recently organized Booster club. Rev. Hindley is an eloquent speaker. He had his audi ence in good humor all the time, though he spoke two hours on the subject "The Making of a Modern City," yet the time passed so rapid ly that few realized that he had spo ken for so long a time. The speaker is thoroughly a west erner. He is imbued with the pro gressive booster spirit of the big In land Empire and his address was on The practical lines of not only mak ing a big city but of making the high .est type of a modern city. Wenat chee people enjoy a great deal of self-praise and Rev. Hindley knows how to put it on in the right quan tities. He eulogized the big red ap ple and the country which produced it and of this the Wenatchee people never tire. In the making of a modern city, the speaker outlined four general elements that enter into such build ings. He spoke of commercial ele ment first and stated that while the tendency of the" times was to decry the commercial spirit yet the speak er posed not as an opponent of the commercialism of the present times but as an adherent. He pointed out that while the city might be of beautiful homes, scenery, natural re sources yet if the business men lack ed the spirit which would go out and "seek new worlds to conquer" the city Itself would only reach limited proportions. In reference to the po litical life of a city Rev. Hindley *poke of the unison there should be between the commercial organiza tions and the city administration and advised a very hearty co-operation. His idea was that while the commer . rial club and booster organizations should take no part whatever in pol itics yet the strength of the organiza tions should be thrown to the very best possible men to take charge of the business of the city. Rev. Hindley gave the social ele ment as the third place in the ele ments that go to make up a great city. In this he referred to the home life. In this phase he spoke of the home environments of the citizens and advocated the making of a city beautiful in its fullest extent, the building of neat and attractive homes with lawns, trees and beauti- (Continued on page 5) SUGGESTS BOOSTFR CLUB TRIPS JOHN A. GELLATLY ADVOCATES AUTO TRIPS BY BOOSTER CLUB MEMBERS TO THE ADJACENT TOWNS. As a result of the enthusiasm in noculated into everyone who attended the open meeting last night of the 25,000 club, Mayor John A. Gellatly this morning suggested that it is up to the local club to spread some of its enthusiasm among the neighbor ing towns. The suggestion was made that inasmuch as there are so many automobiles in the valley at this time that trips be made to the towns of Cashmere, Leavenworth. Malaga, Waterville, Chelan and up-river points having commercial club Or-, ganizations. These trips could be made on the night at which the vari ous clubs meet. By a better acquaintance with the people of various localities it is thought that a better mutual under standing can be had and the dif ferent communities work more in harmony towards the development of North Central Washington. All the smaller communities are having difficulty in maintaining their commercial organizations and it is thought that Wenatchee can be of a great deal of assistance in keeping.up these outside organizations—both to the benefit of the home towns and also of Wenatchee. GROWTH OF CITY SCHOOLS AVERAGE ATTENDANCE THIS YEAR FOR PAST SIX WEEKS IS 1157, COMPARED WITH «2T> THREE YEARS AGO. The enrollment of the city schools during the first week of this year was an even 1,000. During the past six weeks Superintendent Brown has kept a record of the daily attendance and this averaged 1,157 —a gain of 157 since the first week. The regis tration amounts to considerable more than this but the average attendance is what was taken. During the same period three years ago the average attendance was 625—a gain of 532 in three years. The schools are very much congested and even with the additional facilities that have been provided in the way of a high school the directors are facing the problem of more room. Already plans have been considered by the city board of education for securing additional school sites. It is thought that these should be secured while property val ues are low and as the occasion de mands that new buildings may be erected.

Wenatchee's Big Red Apple Daily INDIAN ALLOTMENT LAND LOCAL PEOPLE SECURE VALU ABLE TRACTS ON THE RIVER BELOW PATEROS—WILL BE PLANTED TO ORCHARD. Wenatchee was very well repre sented yesterday when the bids were opened at Miles for land under the Moses-Columbia allotments. A. Z. Wells. A. L. Morris, E. Messerly and A. L. Messerly were the successful bidders on tract 20. The land se cured comprises 484.15 acres, all in one tract. This is on the Columbia river, just below Pateros.

Wright, Lake Chelan's larg est grower of prize-winning winter apples, came down Wednesday with the last of a big shipment of apples whlhc he is sending to Spokane for entry in the National Apple Show next month. Altogether he has for warded nearly 900 boxes, and from these he will repack the choicest for the show entriesO He is going after both the big prizes and the little ones, and a lot of them. His collection includes up wards of 60 varieties, but his spe? cialty is the Rome Beauty. He will enter a' straight carload of this va riety in the carload lot contest, and the entry will include 630 boxes, none of which will be smaller than three and one-half tier. The apples are all highly colored and Mr. Wright declares they are in every way the finest specimens of the variety he has ever grown. This is saying a good deal for the apples for Mr. Wright has built up his reputation on this variety and has won many prizes with them, including the sweepstakes over all in the ten-box display at the show last year. If these are better than those grown in former seasons, they cannot be outclassed. He will also enter the Rome Beauty in the ten-box display, the five-box and several other smaller and special classes. He will have several other varie ties in the ten-box display. Among these will be the Yellow Newtown Pippin. Bellflower. Grimes Golden. Jonathan, Rhode Island Greening, King David, and others, and he will make entries from these varieties in numberless plate and other displays. There are also some big special prizes which look good to Mr. Wright and he means to capture some of them. The Stark Bros. Nursery com pany of Louisiana, Mo., is offering some big specials for exhibits in the varieties of which this company makes a specialty. As his orchard was planted almost exclusively from Stark Bros.' stock and contains a number of their most popular stand ard varieties, he is' prepared to make a strong showing in these special classes. He will go over to Spokane in a week or ten days to get his exhibits in shape and will remain until after the show. There is no doubt that this big dis play of Lake Chelan apples will rank high up in the list of awards cap tured. Mr. Wright knows what a really good apple Is, and he under stands how to display an exhibit to (Continued on Pace 4.) 5c PER COPY. OUICLASSED BY IDAHO IN BY A BOOSM OF 23 TO 6 VISITORS TOOK YESTERDAY AFTEtt- NOON'S GAME—FTRST HALF THE HONORS WERE EVEN. Coeur d'Alene high school came to Wenatchee yesterday with the scalps of the Spokane high school, Lewiston high and Hillyard high hanging in their belt and proceeded to do some more scalping on the football field with the home team by a score of 23 to o—but0 —but not until they had re ceived the biggest scare of the sea son. The majority of the crowd out to see the game was aware of the fact that the visitors had won laurels from bigger high schools and victory seemed far. far away. While prac ticing before the game Coeur d'Alene showed that she understood the game. The throwing and catching of the ball was a revelation. It seemed a shame for them to take the money. The game started off about 3:30 in the afternoon with the visitors ! kicking off to Wenatchee. The crowd was astonished to see the Wenatchee boys take the ball and march rapid !tf towards Coeur d'Alene's goal. Foster was invincible. He circled the ; ends and went through the line like a demon. "Guckenheimer" strewed the field with those who dared to interfere. Hope, smothered by the thoughts of former games, sprung i from the breasts of the followers of j the Red Apple eleven, and a thous ' and voices helped the local squad to get the first touchdown in about 7 i minutes of play. The goal was safe ;ly kicked and Coeur d'Alene saw l vision of defeat staring them in th< |face. The ball went to the center of th< : field again and the boys from Idaho ' had their "dander up." With an ' alertness and precision very notice able to the crowd one play after an other brought them nearer to We natchee goal and they finally got the ball over and kicked goal. Thus the first half ended with the score 6 to 6. Many thought the second half would be an even struggle. After ten minutes' respite, the two teams again faced each other and the : crowd was treated to one of the best 'exhibitions of trained football they have seen this year. The Idaho boys reeled off one play after another. Thompson, the fleet footed end for the visitors, soon got the ball and with a clear field planted the ball safely behind the Wenatchee goal. - : Three times this boy wonder ac ■ complished the same feat. He won i the plaudits of the crowd by his beautiful work. The Wenatchee boys * with might and main struggled i against the well oiled machine but jit was easy to see that they were j nonplussed at the plays sprung upon ! them. They were not to be blamed. : they simply hadn't been taught how. !They deserve the greatest credit of the two teams for they played against the greatest odds. The time has come in football when science outclasses weight by far, and weight iwas all they had to depend upon. Foster. Koehler. Harter and Garland played great football. For Coeur d'Alene every man played his position well. The ends were wonders. A match between them and Everett would be worth i going to see. The game was clean and no one j was seriously hurt. In fact every ; game played on the local field has | been a credit to the great game of football. Rowdyism has been not , able for its absence. Dr. Haskell, who refereed the ! game yesterday, was treated with ut i most respect by both teams and no | one wrangled with him over his de ! cisions. j It is hoped the Idaho boys will j como again for they are gentlemen .and deserve to be treated as such. F. M. Scheble. of Seattle, arrived here last night and will spend sev eral days looking after his property interests here. Mrs. C. M. Denis ton, who has bee i very 111 for the past several weeks, is reported some better today.
