Ken Lilly arrived Saturday morn
ing at the Stanford university to Join
Coach Evans' squad of hopes (or tbe
preliminary football training season.
Lilly Is a candidate for the Cardinal
back field and figures as an almost
certain choice for one of the' half
back positions. His arrival gives
Evans some fast, heavy material to
work on.
Lilly lonrned the American game
when he bucked tbe line with the
Ashland (Ore.) HlKh School team.
Dnring his first years at Stanford
be confined his energies to baseball,
where his hitting won him a steady
position In the outfield. In 1917,
however, he branched out Into rugby
and to the track squad. His per
formance In the big meet of winning
the hundred-yard dash in :10 flat,
after a stiff game of baseball In the
morning, stamped him an all-round
athlete of speed and stamina. Lilly
later startled the fans with his play
ing at first five In the rugby contest
against Santa Clara In the same year.
The same speed and ability to han
dle himself should help him when
tia imiMri nn thA rrtrilrnn this fall.
' Coach Evans is handing hfa
charges a bunch of hard work these
days. He Is evidently going to make
hay while the sun shines and he has
the entire squad to himself from
morning until night from now until
college opens on October 1.

Ashland people have built the best
schooW. They boast of tbe cleanli
ness of the city and the particular
advantages , for raising a family.
Women are supposed to be tbe best
friends of. the kiddies, but are they?
People come here in response to
our home-building talk and our
child-railng preaching, and find lit
tle welcome for their babies. From
house to house one will get the same
cold blooded heart-breaking un
motherly, unwomanly, unnatural, unmarried-like
watchward, "but no
children', allowe'd."
A mother and father might rea
sonably exclaim "Great Father, how
did we all grow up? Certainly It
can not have ulways been like this!"
One would thing that a large num
ber of people would decree if possi
ble that no more children should be
allowed to. come into the world alive,
as it appears that about the only
abiding place without restrictions as
to children is the cemeteries.
Those who have started a family
in a clean, well kept home of their
own do not forget that they were
once youngsters and are led to the
belief that a bouse too good for
children to live in is entirely too
good for the owner.
Let's mix a little consistency with
the handling ' of the children. We
are not advertising for a childless
Increase of population.

SACRAMENTO, Cal., Sept. 23.
An airplane landing stntlon on the
roof Is provided for In plans just
completed for a new 12-story de
partment store to be erected at
Sixth and K streets in Sacramento.
In the opinion of L. F. Breuner,
who is to have the big building con

store, the time Is not far distant
when Milady will go a-Bhopping via

stullation of elevatois to carry aerial ,

But Ashland Loses Game
(By L. D. M.)
On the way down'town this morn
ing a fellow stopped me to say, "Well
that old hard luck story is just ubout
worn out as an alibi; what are you
going to blame It on today?"
That started me thinking. When
a general loses a battle or a grocery
store loses a package In delivery or
a ball team loses a ball game as Ash
land did to Weed by a score of 2 to
1 at Yreka Sunday, there has to
be an alibi.
I can only find one break In that
game Sunday that will serve the
purpose. And whether or not the
hard luck line is worn out, whether
or not runs are scored or hits or er
rors, it Is. sure HARD LUCK when
a fellow sprinting In home from sec
ond, stubs his toe and fulls down
at third base. The first assistant
adviser who Is leaning over -my
typewriter, says, "Hard luck, your
foot; that was awkwardness." Well
you may blame It onto either you
please, but if the proposed game for
next Sunday which the boys are fig
uring on today, comes off, I am go
ing to take my trusty twenty-two
hie myself across Bear creek, shoot
me a size 2 jackrabbit, and carry his
left hind foot in my right hind pock
et to that game. And believe me
folks, when you have as good a ball
team as we have, and a jack-rabbit's
foot, no bunch of Callfornians can
put it over on you.
It was a go-getter of a game Sun
day. Some nine-hundred tans, over
160 of whom were from Ashland, will
talk About it for weeks to come. It
was a pitcher's battle from start to
finish. Hub Pernoll showed up in
the form which took him up to
the big leagues while Bill James
was there In the pinches with world
series form.
Pernoll got a little the better of
it. Weed got but three hits and
Ashland four. Seven hits for a
game in the bushes is about as rare
as a dodo bird in a refrigerator. Per
noll whiffed twelve Weed batsmen
while James took the measure of
ten Ashland hopefuls.
Ashland's line-up Included Hill be
hind the bat, Pernoll pitching, King
of Cottage Grove on first, Mclntire
second. Frye third. Cedarstrom of
Roseburg shortstop, Baker of Cot
tage Grove, Williams and Bentley,
- Cedarstrom played a snappy game
and got two hits, winning high hon
ors for the day.. Williams covered
a lot of ground in center and got n
double. Daddy Hill had an off day
with the bat but caught his usual re
liable game. Baker is a pitcher and
was too slow on the bases and in
the field. ,
Ashland got .six men on buses.
Weed got the same number on. May
be that isn't air-tight ball. Such
pitching would get by In any league.
Cremer got on for Weed In the
first but was caught' stealing. Weed
got no more on until the fifth when
Cedarstrom booted one giving Buel
na life but first was as far as the
little Indian got. The unlucky sev-
which Williams almost reached and
which a fast left fielder would have
nabbed, scoring Cremer. Harper
grounded out and die rally should
have ended when Buelna filed to
Bentley but that young man dropped
it letting In another score. Weed
earned but one of the two runs. Per
noll struck out James ending the
scoring and although French
scratched a single In the eighth and
Its a Problem
Powell got on when King ran cir
cles around a high fly, the boys
tightened up and no more scores re
sulted. Baker started things for Ashland
in the third after King fouled out
and the game should have been won
in that Inning. Baker doubled and
should have gone to third when
Bentley hit to James, but was , too
slow to try. Cedarstrom bit a long
single to right and linker should
have scored easily but stubbed his
toe at third and sprawled all over
that section, of the diamond and
could go no further. Hill struck out.
Ashland bad another chance In the
fourth. Frye grounded out. Wil
liams walked, Pernoll grounded out
alter Williams had stolen second
Williams took third. Mclntlr
wulked. Kind fouled out ending
that chunce. In the elKhth Cedar
strom singled but got no help.
Jn tbe ninth after Frye, who had
lost his butting eye, struck out, Wil
Hams doubled and stole third am
scored when French dTopped a third
strike on Pernoll. Another piece of
hard luck occurred here. Billy Hu
len was umpiring bases and over
looked the fuct that the first base
man In his hurry to try to catch Wil
Hams at home, did not even attempt
to touch first. Hulen called Per
noil out and Mclntyre struck out
ending the game.
In the final nalysig, the game
should have gone Into extra Innings
with a one to one score. Weed
earned one run . on two doubles.
Ashland did not earn the run
scored but was beat out of an
earned run on Baker's double and
Cedarstrom's single when the former
fell down.
Local funs who do not fuel able
to make the long trip over the
mountain and feel that names should
be arranged here ,are-due for an ex
planation. Yreka was selected be
cause Weed would not come 'to Ash
land and Ashlund couldnt afford to
go clear to Weed. The live Yreku
crowd agreed to put up the adver
tising, put the grounds in shape
and added one hundred dollars to
the receipts at the gate. They are
contemplating offering a two-hun
dred dollar purse for next Sunday
and regard it is a good investment
as It brings five or six hundred out
siders into' town. Ashlund has no
stands capable of handling a crowd
of over three hundred. By next
year It Is hoped to have accommo
dations here for big crowds.

Great Natural
Wonder Neglected
Howard Hose is exhibiting some
fine photographs of tho famous Ore
gou Cuves in Josephine county, which
be visited with his wife a few weeks
ago. ile is the first man with an
artificiul limb to make this trip, and
the enthusiasm which he feel tn.
wards this wonderful -vork of nature
i proclaims It well worth the effort.
I Effort is right wheu it comes to
leaching Jhe Oregon Caves, for ac
cording to Mr. Rose the way Is al
moai inaccessible. There are no
roads, no guide posts, no accommo
dations ulong tin- uv, no horses to
tuke one there niter the end of the
automobile road is touched. Hoi
land is the ueurest town this way
u nil Ik thirteen and one-half milbi
from the caves. Automobiles cun
truvel oor a road that Is not worth
the name to within five miles of the
caves, alter which the rest of the
Journey must be made on foot. On
reaming I lie caves one can camp
In the open, as there are no fucill
ties oilier than what tourists ca
puck in on their backs.
But when all these difficulties huv
been overcome the Bcene thut natur
hus provided for those who pene
trate the wilderness is one of the
most wonderful spectacular attrac
Hons of the world. The pictures Mr.
Rose is exhibiting are flashlights ta
ken in the Interior of. the caves and
only feebly portray the wonderful
charm of the scene.
Visitors cun penetrate 3300 feet
Into the interior of the caves and are
1600 feet from the surface of the
earth. Here spacious caverns are
seen with immense x alaetltes bus
pended from the celling, glittering
like gigantic. Icicles. In places they
meet the huge stalagmites from the
floor of the caves and form (anttis-
tic pillars, the result of cduntless
centuries of water drip. By these
pillars chambers have been seques
tered which have been given descrlp
live names. Here mny he seen the
petrified forest, a group of stalac
tites closely resembling the trunks
of gigantic trees. Then there is Nl
again Falls In Rlcumlng and Imper

Ington's Monument, Joaquin Miller's
Chapel, so-named when tho fumous
poet explored the. cuves, mid nmny
At the extreme end Is tho "Ghost
Chamber,", the lurgest one there.
This Is 4.1 feet long, 65 feet high
and J5 Ceot wide. In tho fur reiiches
ure glittering, white, illusive statue-
like objects which do rot tuke a long
stretch of Imagination to fancy
ghosts lurking In the subterranean
fast nesses of the cuves.
No woman should ever attempt to
do" the Oregon Cuves clad in a
skirt, Mr. Rose Btate.l. There are
many Kubterranean passages thut
cannot be explored In attire of that
kind, and only those dressed in trou
sers should think of making tho
One of the happiest co-incidents
of the trip, according to Mr. Rose,
was meeting the guide to the raves,
Dick Rowley, who, before he accept
ed his present position, was a well
known railroad man In this vicinity.
Rowley is the best-natured guide
man ever hud, and but for his knowl
edge of the caves' treasures and his
courteous consideration to the vis
itors the trip would be a failure,
le.t only looks after the welfare
those who enter the caves, but
lakes their abode in the nearby
amp as pleasant as lossihle.
While Rowley leads a secluded
life away out in this isolated section,
he has muny feathered und four
footed comrades who have learned
to love their gentle friend and come
at his cull. While Mr. and Mrs. Rose
were there a little fuwn came to their
cump expectantly looking for some
thing to eat. Birds would come and
perch on the tuble, looking for
crumbs, and squirrels were sociable
guests everywhere. Those little wild
folk knew no harm would befall them
when they were at the camp of thelt
beloved friend, the guide to the Ore
gon CuveB.
The pitiful thing about this won
derful wutk of nuture to Mr. Rose U
the fuct that Oregon has let such a
marvelous attraction go so long with
out making It more prominent and
building a passable, ro 'd to the caves.
Tourists of the coast states cannot
