It a'so delays our going to press until ten or eleven o'clock at night, There are several reasons why we wi,;h to adhere to this schedule First it si to the advantage of the advertiser to have thg paper put in the mail on time. Second, if we are not crowded in our work we by set up better looking ads. ' Third, our subscribers pay for the|liave paper with the understanding that it is issued on Friday; they look for it and want it on that day. Fourth it Is just as easy to write ads Monday as on Thursday. noon to We an on Friday, to make this can a , f , 1 I on ODD FELLOWS SOCIAL Last Tuesday evening the Odd Fellows held one of their socials, and during the evening the Rebek ah.s served some real eats that pleased everyone present. Among the large crowd present we noticed our friend, the jeweler Lindgreu around; and as we wand ered down the Groves, we asked Chester if he would "hang around" until after lunch. He said, "you bet." And stay he did; you ought to see him eat that Angel Food. The Sheriff and his Deputy were noticed out in the lobby with a wistful look In their eyes. Notic ing this, the boys invited them In. You ought to have seen them eat, especially Bob. After eating for an hour or more, our Sheriff - enter tained the audience; and I want to say that our Sheriff proved to be a real Jewell. While there we saw- a good 1ml taUon of Caesar, got several glimp ses of Pekin, China, and were in gratiated into the mysteries of Jumping Jacks as a side issue. Miss Lindgren entertained the audience with a solo accompanied by Brother Compton with the violin About this time there showed up a procession in which Brother Perry Chandler and Sister Olive Walker seemed to be the main actors. It looked very much like a wedding for a time, especially as far as Brother Chandler was concerned; but at the critical juncture, when the sister was asked the vital ques tion whether she would "obey," etc. she immediately took exception to any such intention, and the whole proceeding was declared off. 1 would suggest to Brother Chandler the practice of the old addage, "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again." Later on Brother John Molloy was introduced as the Historian of the Welppe. Among other things he mentioned during his discourse, he said, "That In coming to this section of the country, he came all the way from Portland, Oregon, to Orofino In a boat, arriving here sometime after Noah landed on Mt. Arry-Rat. He said that all this scope of country was at that time an immense lake. When asked where all this water had disappear ed, he said, "soon after arriving here, we cut a channel for the Clearwater river and let all the water run out." I Immediately aaked a member present how John stood in the community as to truth and veracity. He replied, "Well, my friend, as far as the truth goes, he stands ace high; but as to ver acity, I have never heard how he stood." During the evening s very laugh able Incident was pulled off in the way of a "Dress Making Contest." Three ladles wsrs selected as models on which three of the Brothers were to fashion costumes made up by the aforesaid modestes. Brother Jolly Bullock won first prise In this unique contest In which Brothers Walssenfluh and Cochran ran a cloae second. We anticipate you will see theae styles emulated by others an4 worn on the streets In the near future. Those Interested had batter see Brother Bullock aa he has all models and styles necessary for get ting out those costumes on short order. Dancing finished up the enter tainment for the evening. Bvery body seemed to have s rollicking good time In spite of all the above Incidents. We advise all Brothers who may be In the vicinity of this place whsn one of these socials are being staged, to "stop off" If within 10 miles. REPORTER. POSTAL IMPROVEMENT WEEK The Poet Office Department has set aside May 1st to 6th as Postal Improvement Week. The plan out lined Is that 100 per cent errtclency will be gained In the postal service not only by the postal employees themselvee but by the public as well While the postal employees are ask ed to be courteous, pleasant and dlitigant In their duties, the public Is also asked to help by early mail ing, addressing mall plainly and by placing return address on letter and parcels. Postmaster Molloy an nounces that while trying to Im prove the service during this week, any suggestions from the patrons of the office for the betterment of the postal service will be given careful consideration. Before a large crowd that about filled the stand the Orofino base hall team opened the 1922 season by giving Kamiah a <p.od unouali-1 fied trouncing. the|liave been 12 FIRST GAME LOCALS WIN FROM KAMIAH ON OROFINO DIAMOND TWELVE TO ONE SUNDAY The ïoo.'o should to 0 had it cot been for an error in the first inning at a critical point, giving the visitors their one run. iah team made some errors.

A1 though the Kain locals If. It is doubtful If any other seien- | tiflc development ever took such an j Instant hold on the people as Radio Is taking. In the past several months the number of receiving stations Install ed has only been limited by the possibility of getting the necessary equipment. The explanation for this is easy and logical, first be cause In radio you have one of the most fascinating entertainments thafThe world has to offer, and In addition to this you have but to draw on your Imagination to real ize seme of the many useful things to be gained by a radio station. Let us imagine ourselves living many miles from town or telephone or from daily mail service; let us also imagine ourselves living as we do, in Orofino (one of the biggest lit tle towns In the world) we receive our dally paper with the world's news, some 20 hours old, at best we have our telephone, ouç dally mail and our train service etc., but still we are not nearly so close to the world without radio as Is the man equipped with a receiving sta tion no matter how far he may be from town. Radio will add pleasure and contentment to those «who are fortunate enough to realise Its pos sibilities and who Install a receiv ing station In their homes. Some of the many things you may enjoy are musical concerts, .weather forecasts, market reports, news events , sermons and public speech In fact there seems no limit to what you may aspect and the fu ture has many surprises in store for you, and the future In this case means the very immediate fu ture. Development Is being made so fast In this line that is simply staggers the Imagination. It sounds to us more like a fairy tale than hard facta, yet facts are facta and soon you will be sitting In your own parlor listening to a musical concert in Denver, or It may be Spokane, San Francisco. Portland, Seattle, Kansas City or Pittsburg. If you prefer some other entertainment ÿou will have only to tune to another wave length and choose your own. Jas. F. Mc Laughlin. chief of the Philadelphia Electrical Bureau, asserts, no one no matter how thoroughly they may be versed In the ways of radio, Is In position to say Just what the possibilities of the radio idea may reach to. No limits are placed on achievement, no bounds of confine ment. To those who are Interested in radio and considering the instal lation of a set the very best advice possible Is, first learn what Is re quired for your particular location. There are many cheap equipments advertised which are quite satisfac tory and efficient In some places which would be utterly worthless it Installed here. This Is owing to the lack of broadcasting stations close to this district. Here, it Is necessary for satisfactory results, to secure one of the better Vaccum Tube sets and care must be used with antennae or aerial, and ground connection bat teries, etc. Crystal sets are worth less here and will be so until broad - done the " eek of April 9 to 15 it A a CLEAN-UP DAY COMMERCIAL CLUB APPOINTS CAPTAINS AND ISSUES INSTRUCTIONS Although the Governor by a pro lamation asked that cleaning up be i wa * considered inadvisable to at tempt a thorough job at that time j fino ' "hen all the winter's accum ulation of filth and trash of every description will be disposed of. it j s expected that all residents . and business houses will have their j premises cleaned and the material to be hauled away placed In the I alley where it can be picked up by teams furnished by the city in the fore ! jt i s requested and urged that the j people all take an active part and £ G t out and help clean up the rocks, [sticks and other trash in the streets I and alleys and fill up and level oft 1 the same. For this purpose cap tains have been appointed who will | have charge of all the work in their I respective districts as follows; Kal aspo .avenue, Theo, fohl; Brown ! street, Frank Jones; from the pave | ment east on Michigan avenue, Ed on account of the weather. The weather is now pretty well settled and tlie Commercial Club thru a meeting of the directors Wednesday announces that next fWednesday, May 3, will be the big day in Oro noon. wards and Swantek; College avenue, Dr. Britan; 1st avenue, E. H. Ath erton; Main street from College ave nue to depot, Samson Snyder; South side of Orofino creek, N. O. Helge son, Fred Luttropp, Fred Hammond. Get out rakes, shovels, etc. and re port to your captain. | ~ j casting stations are within a very close range. However the better sets of Tube Amplifiers are within reach of nearly everyone, complete installations and perfect satisfaction assured can be had at prices rang ing from $100 up, the choosing ot these sets should and do require care and knowledge or there will be extra expense and delay. At the present time It Is next to Im possible to secure anything at all, orders are being placed with fac tories which are working night and day and which can not be possibly be filled In less than three to four months and possibly longer. Next week we will endeavor to give some idea of the different sets, their ranges, and what Is meant by static and tuning. _ J. H. M iller. TOMORROW AT CHINA ISLAND Tomorrow Is the day selected to erect the stone monument at China Island In commemoration of Lewis and Clark's camp at that place. Get your tin cup and follow the crowd. For ten cents you can have a good time and a nice hot lunch besides taking part In a fitting memorial to two great men. It is planned to "cache" In the cement of the mon ument a sealed glass Jar which will contain the names of all the teach ers, pupils, county officers, business men and all others who are at the exercises, as well as other informa tion ot interest. The plan follows that in 1965 on the 150th anni versary of the camp, another meet ing will be held at the place and the Jar removed. Such Information will then be of great interest. Di rections will be preserved as to how to break thru the cement to reach th e "cache." COMING SCHOOL EVENTS Eighth grade examinations will be held May 10, 11 and 12. The annual county track meet, declamatory contest and school «X hlblWwtll be held in Orofino May 18 and 19. All the pupils and teachers are working to make this a successful meet. Anyone that does not believe this, should visit the ball park and see the girl's track team in action. Preliminar ies for arrangements for all the events are well under way and now Is the time for you to make up your mind to take a couple days oft to attend. DRAY CHANGES HANDS Floyd McLean, who has conducted a dray line in Orofino for about two years, sold out Thursday, the 20th, to the City Dray.

Loans ADMISSION TO GAMES The management of the base ball team and board of trustees advise that there has been some criticism of the admission price to games. It has been fixed at 50 cents for adults and 25 cents for children. Ten per cent of the receipts must be turned in as war tax and it is felt that these prices are reasonable and the lowest that will suffice to cover the expense of keeping the team in equipment and pay the expenses of games and rent. The chief objec tion seems to be In the charge for children and the trustees wish It understood that there Is no inten tion of charging any admission at all for those under high school aga and that 50 cents is a universal charge for admission to games in towns of this size thruout the re gion. a CHURCH OF CHRIST We missed some of our boys and girls last Sunday at Bible School, live hope the parents will remind their children of Bible School next Sunday.
