ROUIE Of GREATER WENATCHEE SURVEY FULLY^ DESCRIBED QUINCY IRRIGATION DISTRICT SURVEY BEING RUN AT SAME TIME—LARS LANQLOE EX PLAINS COSTS. A party surveying the route of I water way of the Great Wenatchei project ran their line across the Co lumbia river Friday, says thr Wenat chee World. They crossed at a point near tho power line, which is about a mile above the confluence of the Wenat chee river and the Columbia river. An other party has reached Moses Cotlleo and the two crewi will meet some where north of Rock Island Creek within two weeks or more. Following is the route of tho lino from the Wenatchee river four miles below Pain to Columbia river: Starting at the Wenatchee river, the line describes a tunnel to Bren iler school house on the Chumstick; it follows the Chumstick on the east side down to Clark Canyon, from Clark canyon a tunnel is contemplat ed through to Bjork canyon, a branch of Eagle creek; from Bjork canyon, a tunnel through to Eaprle creek; from Eagle creek, a tunnel through to a fork of Derby canyon; from there the line winds around a bill to the main Derby canyon; from Derby canyon, a tunnel is described to William canyon. Following the benches the line runs to within a short distance of Olalla canyon; from that point a short tun nel is described to Ollalie canyon, or a canal or tunnel may go around; the line describes a canal and tunnel to Hay canyon; from Hay canyon it runs to Nahahum canyon, back of Cash mere; a siphon is described across Xahahum canyon; the line describes a tunnel to Warner canyon; from War ner canyon it runs to Warm Springs canyon; from Warm Springs canyon a long tunnel, or several miles of ca nal and a short tunnel are contem plated to the Columbia river. The line crosses the Columbia river as has been stated, near thr power line, which Ci'OJS'." about one mile pbove the confluence of tha IVen:i' chee river with the Columbia river; from Columbia <ivet rhe lin? follows tho benches toward Rock Island creek. A second survey party is working in Moses coulee. It started Its line from a point 1 hoif mile roith of Quiney, exactly while the Columbia Rasin survey end- The elevation at this point is 1320 fest The line con templates a canal, i racticall/ paral leling the Croat Northern into Crater crnyon, thence up alone the east side of Willow Sprint;* canyon to :; point rliout half a mi r . bove where the Great Xoi-thern Rrrsteg th, j canyon; thence the lino dewribes a siphon across Willow Creek canyon and thence by tunnel to Moses coulee. Two BUrveys arc hi'intr run. one for the Greater Wenatrhee Project anil the other for the Quincv [negation district. From near Plain to Cash mere the lines wen- so clo-;r together that tTio data for one iurvey was mf ficient for hoth. From Cashmere two entirely separate surveys have been made. Only one canal will ho built, Jmt it lias not been determined whether the Qninrv Irrigation district wants n taVe water. If it does, the ranal will he Tuiilt ahovp the line run for the Greater Wenatchee proiert. Eight men are in thp field near Wenatcheo on the Doaglai =idp nf thp river; and eight are in the fie'd in Moses Coulpp, with ramp at Co lumbla Siding. Roy Zahren, engineer (if thp city nf Wcnatchoe, has a crew running laterals.

Of these 8 are freshmen. X sophomores, 8 juniors and C seniors. Of the 30, there are 19 boys and 11 girls. —o — Monday. Mr. C. W. Arnold nine teen years connected with "Thfi Northwest Society for the Prevention of Vice." at Minneapolis, spoke to the high school students about thtnjr.n thitf hinder young | eople in their advance merit in school and in life. —o — The Washington Education Associ ation met in annual session on Wed nesday, Thursday and Friday of last week. The key note of the conven tion was greater training, higher pro fessional standards, and more strir, gent certification laws for teacher-. The "Thirty-ten" plan of apportion ing school revenues was approved on the ground that school taxes should !>■ levied where the wealth is. and dis tributed where the school children :>re. The report for the second month of school went to the office of the county superintendent the first or the week The per cent of attendance for the en tire school was a little better than 08. The record of the school in number of cases of tardiness was better, being 48 this time as against '<•> the first month. Thirteen of these instance occurred in the high school. The sec ond, sixth and twelfth grades had only enc case of tardiness each. Our team yon thfl first game of the Reason on-the home grounds last l"ii day afternoon from Waterville, the score being 19 to 0. Three touch down* Vere made ami one goal kicked. The Waterville team won the toss ana rhose to receive the kiekoff but the home hoys started with a msh and compelled Waterville to punt at once. Emit,' scored the first touchdown i few minutes Inter, Paith kicked goal. Neither team could score during the second quarter. Six minutes afte> the start of the third quarter, Bar hano plunged through center for an other score. Shortly afterward Xo! --son intercepted a Waterville forward pass and ran 20 yards for the final touchdown of the day. Both goals were missed. Good interference an 1 splendid teamwork by the T.eavcn worth hoys were responsible Tor thfl Victory. The team showed a complete reversal of form from the previous games and took Waterville by sur prise, as they admitted they expected an easy victory here. Waterville showed up best at forward passing, their star fullback being unable c< make any consistent gains through our line. The team i- being drilled on tackling anil blocking this week, the continual high tackling of the boys being the poorest feature of tli ■ tame. After the game a supper wa. given both teams in the high school building, under the direction of Miss Myers and Mrs. Van Tassel, assisted In Ruth Field. Deloris Smith. Maude Kliott and Margaret Kinseherf. Th" Leavenworth boys at least, thought it was a fitting end for a perfect day. The school desires to express its most hearty appreciation of the closing of the stores by Leavenworth business men. Next Friday Cashmere eomei here, hoping to repeat their victory of three weeks ago. Needleai to say, our boyi are working hard for 'J's game and will put up thp best fight ever seen on the home grounds. Come out and boost for home talent. You will re gret missing this game.

But the home town newspaper is not a thing, it is a serv ice, just the same as is the telephone.

World: A thrilling escape from pofsible injury or death occurred near th« Great Northern freight depot Saturday afternoon when a Liberty ix was smashed between two refrig ( rator cars. The auto had come to a stop right on the siding west of th,' ■'(■pot and the driver wa- unable to t: rt the engine. On one side was a number of re frigerator cars loaded, while on the i ther was a switch engine attached to a half dozen cars, backing in to pick ip the loaded ears. The engineer did not see the automobile and kept right on towards the helpless driver. Finally just before the approaching train struck the car, the driver jump , d from the seat, and immediately af terwards there was a resounding crash as the automobile was ground to pieces between the two freight cars. The machine was a total loss, or ct least, it looked like one to the spec tators who gathered after the acci dent. LEAVENWORTH 19, WATERVILLE '). The Leavenworth high school foot ball team cleaned up on the Water ville team last Friday afternoon, hero on the home grounds, by a score of 19 to 0, and great was the rejoicing. The game was followed by a banquet at the school at which both team:; played to a draw and gave credit 'o the high school culinary department as highly efficient in their art. It was a banquet that developed all the latent gastronomic fighting qualities of each and every member of the two teams. Al Hoffman and Prof. Free man refereed the game but no one had time to do much refereeing at the banquet. Each team now has a sKutout game to its credit. The visitors made thi! trip here in one of the big busses in use on the Waterville-Wenatchee stage run, and returned home after the banquet. Cashmere will play a return gamo here this afternoon. Stores and bank- and some of the other business places closed from 2:46 to 5 o'clock for the game last Friday and it would certainly be nice to have them do the tame today.

Portland, Ore., Nov. 4.— 102" lumber cut for Washington and Ore gon, according to data just given out by the Forest Service offices here, shows, a decided increase over a prev ious year. Washington's cut shows an increasee of 11 per cent while Ore gon's shows a 29 per cent increase over the 1919 cut. Washington lei all the states in total cut for 1920, with 5,525,000,000 feet board measure, with Oregon taking second place for the first time with 3,317,000,000 feet, Louisiana ranking third and Califor nia in fifth place. The lumber cut of the United States as a whole in 1920 was 33,798,800,000 /eet. which is 2.2 per cent less than in 1019, and 27 per cent less than the peak in 1907. The average price of lumber at the mill increased to $88.42 per thousand, - which is a rise of 150 per cent since 1910. The aggregate value of the cut is $1,299,000,000. These are the highest annual valuations ever re corded, but do not indicate present conditions. They merely reflect the extremely high peak in the post-war lumber prices which was passed In the first quarter of 1920. These are the principal statistics obtained by the Forest Service, in its 1920 canvass of American saw mills. They are based upon reports from 15,978 active mills out of 23,243 esti mated to have been in operation. Several thousand mills cutting less than 50,000 feet were not tabulated. though allowance was made for their cut. These figures show that the states which increased their cut are all in the Pacific Coast group and the Rocky Mountains. Washington is first, as usual. Oregon attains second place for the first time, displacing Louisi ana from a position held for 15 years, while California takes rank among the first five, displacing another yellow pine state. In 1920 the Pacific and Rocky Mountain groups of states, combined, produced 35.6 per cent of the cut. The eight states of the southern pine group produced 34 per cent, while all of the rest of the United States produced 30.4 per cent. The combined production of Doug las fir and western yellow pine, which in 1919 was less than CO per cent of the amount of southern yellow pine cut, in 1920 became 83 per cent. This relative increase in the western species arises in part from the de crease in southern pine production, which amounted to 15 per cent. The conditions reported by southern op erators, arising directly or indirectly from the World War, were so adverse that the southern pine may he ex pected to recover part of the lost ground during the next few years. But the indications of the statistic-; are that the supremacy In lumbei production held by the southern pine states has passed the zenith and is moving faster yearly to the West. PROGRAM TO BE REPEATED. The program given Wednesda; ■ ening by the Methodist choir will bp repeated next Wednesday, Nov. 0. !
