INSTALL PLAYGROUND APPARATUS Recent Improvement at Washington School Delight Children—High School Hears Victrola Concert The installation of amusements for the playground at the Washington schoolhosue has been made. The school board desired to have these placed earlier in the year, but for some reason their plans were delayed. There are double swings, "teeter totters," and high-bars on each side of the playground, for both girls and boys. The posts are set in concrete, and will be painted to withstand the wear and tear of wind, rain and sand. The children are delighted with their new playthings, and have great times with them during the recreation hour. Monday morning the seventh and eighth grades were entertained free of charge by a Victrola from the Vibber- Gif Ford drug store. Tuesday morn ing the entertainment was repeated for the high school students, who were very appreciative. The program was as follows: "Yale BoolaSong," solo and quartette; "Princeton —Or- ange and Black," quartette and or chestra; "Loch Lomond," Evan Williams, tenor; "Stilly Night," Er nestine Schuman-Heink, contralto; "How I Love You," "The Years at the Spring," Johanna Gadski, dra matic soprano. Mr. Lewis, who has hearn Madame Gadski several times, kindly related to the high school all that he knows of her; how gracious and sweet and kind she is to apprecia tive audiences; how very good she is to her six children, and how, like all German women, she is industrious and knits while she is traveling from station to station. Mr. Lewis said that when he saw her at Pullman, instead ot going into the stuffy waiting room, Madame Gadski sat on one of her trunks outside and knitted while she waited for the train. The pupils were very much pleased with the en tertainment and hope to be favored with another in the near future. JUNIOR NOTES Arnold Burmaster will most likely make an excellent forward on the basketball team this year, although he played guard in the Richland team last year. Edmund Carpenter is going to give some one a hard run for a place on the high school basketball team. Miss Nelson spent the recitation period Tuesday in telling her Ger man I class interesting facts about Tessing, Goethe, Schiller and Heine, Germany's greatest dramatic and lyric poets. She spoke of the close friend ship between Goethe and Schiller. This was one of the most remarkable friendships of the world, though the two'men were totally unlike, and were from different classes of people, one aristocratic snd the other poor, yet each was attracted by the other's great intellect. Ask a German today which is the greater poet, Goethe or Schiller, and if he is a scholar he will answer, "Goethe," but if he is a peasant, he will tell you, "Schiller," because Schiller appeals to the emotions and heart, while Goethe appeals to the mind. Heine is Germany's greatest lyric poet. He was born of poor Jewish parents, and the fact his peo ple were persecuted so severely in those times, tinged Heine's poems with sadness, bitterness and sarcasm. The Freshman class had a hay ride last Friday night. Songs and jokes enlivened the journey. After much jolting over the rocks the party ar rived at the home of Jas. Johnston in Section Seven, where refreshmeuts were served. Some time was spent there in amusements. Miss Smith and Miss Nelson were the chaperons. The Domestic Science Special girls will serve a dinner to the Institute in structors on Tuesday of next week. Details will be given later.

It is earnestly desired that all the members of the chorus be present at these times, and make the best showing possible for our school. Busses will be run for those who have no conveyances. THROUGH THE ORE6OK COUNTRY Miss Lela Knautz Writes of Trip Over land from Hedges to North Powder, Ore., We left our dear Hedges home and Finley friends at about 2 p. m. Tues day, Oct. 29, for our new home at North Powder, Ore. We did not enjoy this day a great neal, as our hearts were heavy after the sad services of the forenoon and our good-byes. We left with four horses, buggy, covered wagon, bedding, eatables, etc. The weather turned out rather nice and we had no trouble crossing the Wallula ferry. Mr. Finley crossed with us. Mrs. Knautz and myself stayed at the Wallula Hotel Tuesday night while cousin Ben and brother Charles stayed with the wagon. Ben shot a duck be fore we got to Hover, which he dressed for our breaksast but we didn't get it, a dog had a lunch instead. Wednesday morning we started be fore breakfast at 7 o'clock after bid ding our last Finley friend, Mr. Finley, good-bye. We went up hills and through canyons, like those of Horse Heaven, until noon. It reminded me of a scenic. Ben and I couldn't live on scenery so we had a lunch about 9a. m. At noon the boys built a camp fire and boiled coffee. That, with some of our buns, roast chicken and dressing was fine and dandy. This was near a small town called Holdsman. After dinner we reached the top of the hill from where we could see Mount Hood, Mount Rai nier and a last glimpse of the dear old Columbia river. All day the roads were as good as could be wished for and the weather like spring. We covered forty miles that day, passing through some very good wheat country. All the way from Holdeman to Pendleton we saw "Short ies," "Bills" and headers at work on the hills. The Russian thistles seemed to be fewer the nearer we got to Pen dleton and finally disappeared. Wed nesday night we spent at the new Grand Hotel in Pendleton. At 9 o'clock Thursday morning we left Pendleton, after a trip over the city. During the forenoon we went through an Indian Reservation where we saw a number of amusing things, and were called down by some of the squaws for taking their pictures. The roads were not so good and mostly up grade so we didn't travel far. Four p. m. found us pretty well up the moun tains and in the timber. We ex pected to reach Meachem by night but it was getting dark already in the forest and by six o'clock we were travel ing by the aid of a carbon lamp. Think ing we were near Meachem we drove on, looking for lights among the trees, but none were seen, although we im agined we saw one every few minutes. We had not passed a house since noon and were out of civilization. About seven o'clock we were stopped by a man—no, not a robber or thief, but a man traveling the same way we were and didn't know exactly where he was either. So we decided the best thing to do was to camp for the night. The boys soon had a big fire which we certainly enjoyed as it wesn't ex actly like summer up there. We soon had supper, minus coffee, as it was too dark to hunt for water. All day without water and we we were rather thirsty. We could see the big dipper in the sky bnt it was empty. After supper we sat around the fire for three or four hours writing letters Don't Goto Prosser You can pay your taxes at the Bank of Kenne . wick and save yourself a very undesirable trip.

Beyond Meach?" the roads were better and mostly d<Z grade. We enjoyed this day most of all, passing through pine and s Pni all day long, also a little snow.
