Tuesday was the day for Hie K'Ki' lar meeting of the four academic clas ses* with their advisors, The advis ( ins have been checking up to make sure of students being straight with their courses. The girls who gang, "The Japan ese Maiden" and "Mighty Like a Rose," at tlic institute last week were, Alice Sharkey, Anna Day, Lu ella Love, Merle Lichti, Dorothy Les lie, Margaret Crofoot, Margaret Rutherford. Juanlta Burgess playe.l , the accompaniment. They wore tak- '• en down in automobiles by Mr. Ruth erford and Mr. Burgess, and these kind people have Lhe thanks of the j girls, Miss Hair, and the entire school for furnishing transportation to and from Wenatchee. The children of the public school have been asked to cross the railroad tracks only at regular crossing places. Several calls so dose to danger have been made by crossing among the cars that it is almost a wonder some one has not had a serious mishap. Children have been warned by their teachers before to cross only at reg ular crossings, and this warning is now given again. Will parents kind ly assist in this matter. High Bchool students, as well as the graders, should heed this. Waterville hifih .school is playing football here this (Friday) afternoon at the ball park. This will be a great game, and the first of the season on the home grounds. (Jet behind the boys in bin shape, and help them will a victory for the school. The price are mighty reasonable in comparison with what others charge. Come out if you have to walk. It isn't a picnic, party, or love feast; it's a football same with Leavenworth high school booked up to lose or win, depending very largely on how the rest of the high school (jets into it. High School students, get out there to the game if you have to walk—everyone who possibly can. The Leavenworth Schools took quite an important part in the county institute last week. Under the direc tion of Miss Barr, seven of tho 7th grade girls sang splendidly at the opening of the afternoon session Wednesday; then Miss Greene san.ir. accompanied by her sister, Mis. Me- Ilroy, in a most pleasing manner. Both the (rirls and Miss Greene weiv encored. Mr. Curtis and Mr.-. Van Tassel spoke in one of the high school sections on "The Social Activities of the High School." Mrs. Van Tassel was the retiring president of the county organization, which does not include Wenatchee, and Mr. Freeman was unanimously elected to succeed as president for the ensuing year. Mr. Sutton was chosen as tho dele- Kate to attend the annual meeting of the Washington Educational Associa tion, which is in session this week al Bellingham, KILLED FINE BUCK, Orville Dahlgren killed a fine four point buck last Sunday and thus ou ters the fraternity of big game hur.t ers.

CHELAN COUNTY, WASHINGTON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1921. Two Years—What of the Future? WITH this issue of The Echo the present pub lishers complete two years of business life in Leavenworth. The time has passed quickly, which is an indication that we have not been idle. Our business has been fairly good and our dealings with the people of the community generally satisfactory to us. We have endeavored to be of some use to the community and to give a full meas ure in return for every thing of value received; and now as we are about to enter upon a third year we feel that it is not out of place to turn our eyes to the front and give some expression as to what the fu ture ought to hold in store for this community. Each community is just what the people of the community make it. No one else exercises much, if any, influence upon it in matters of production, business and social accomplishments. If the people of Leavenworth are wide awake, energetic and har monious, this can he one of the grandest communi ties in the west. There are several lines alone: which we may work, but the chief one and the most important is the development to the full limit of our agricultural possibilities. Along- with that will come an expansion of social and business activity. There are still thousands of acres of fertile land, each one capable of supporting a family, that can be added to our resources. With our mild climate and irrigation we have one of the most favored spots on earth for our field of endeavor. The Leavenworth community is capable of producing and shipping hundreds of carloads of fruit, berries, grapes, grain, hay and root crops where at present none are loaded out with the exception of apples and a few of soft fruit. The favored spots are fast reaching the lim it of their productivity while this community has been practically at a standstill for many years. With the coming of normal conditions we ought to experi ence a great boom and we will if every agency at the command of our people is employed to its full ca pacity. Look about you. See the idle land, the hillside ■ and ravines, the upland tracts. Many an acre can he made to produce just by clearing and planting, Other tracts will need water. Ought we be interest ed in the expansion of irrigation? Such indifference as was recently shown on this subject does not speak well for our community. Every mother's son of us ought to welcome an opportunity to show an interest in opening more land, growing more crops. Man kind was endowed with special faculties, not given other creatures, because man was expected to de sign and create—and not merely to fatten himself for the killing; not to seal himself up within his shell; not to hibernate like a common bear and come out perennially and roar his dissatisfaction. The Echo suggests that our commercial club take the lead and show some real life. We do not mean that any particular person take the lead and go out beating the torn toms; hut that every one of us awaken and go to work with a will, planning and executing, making a stir, starting something, talk ing something, doing something. Let us get a hundred new families into this sec tion and a thousand or more additional acres under cultivation. Set that as a mark to work to. Then keep going. CASHMERE.

BENNETT OB BURGETT LOVED TOO MANY. World, Oct. 21: One of the most important captures made by the local authorities within recent months was accidentally effected when Special Officer McManug formerly sheriff, pulled a man off the blind baggage Wednesday night at the Great North ern depot, who gave the name of Lylo Burgett. Burnett was later identified as George Bennett, wanted here for cat tle stealing who escaped from Dep uty Sheriff Barker near Walla Walla last November, After being picked off the blind baggage he was sent to the city jail and as there was no charge against him he was about to he turned loose the next morning, when Chief Peterson found a pardon signed by Governor Joseph Dixon of Montana in his possession, made out in the name of Lyle Burgett. The chief remembered that a man named Lyle Burnett was wanted by the sheriff's office and called Sheriff Forsyth to come down and look him over. After a severe cross examina tion by the officers, Burgett admitted that lie was George Bennett wanted here in connection with the stealing of a number of cattle from Coffin Bros, last October. (ieortre T. Jones, who brought the cattle to Wenatchee and sold them, was arrested and sent to Walla for from :: to IS years, but he refused to implicate his partner in the deal. A warrant was issued for Bennett as the partner was called, and Bennett was arrested at Burns. Ore., by tin- au thorities there. Deputy Sheriff Parker was sent to Oregon and started back with Ben nett, but the prisoner escaped from the train near Walla Walla. Since then a continuous search was kepi up for him and he narrowly escaped cap ture at Leavenworth last spring whep he called for mail addressed to George Bennett, giving his own name as Lyle Burgett, which is hi.-- correct cognomen. Burgett told hi.- story to the offk era line after his arrest. At the time hi' was implicated in the stealing of cattle from Coffin Bros, he was an es caped convict from the Montana state prison, having been sent up from Cus ter county m that state for bigamy. When the officers icot hot on his trad here last spring, he went back U> Montana and voluntarily gave himself up to the authorities. After serving a few months of his sentence he was pardoned out by the governor o' Montana, the pardon being dated Oct. t>. He started back toward- Wenat chee, where it || -aid that he is en gaged to marry another girl, though he has two wives livinK in Montana at the same time. Burgett is about 26 yean old. He will bo arraigned on the charge of grand larceny in the superior court here within the netx few days. UOSI'IT \l, MOVEMENT. Dr. Geo. W.
