Of the 210 applicants for admission to the Medford High School, 198, or 94 percent have passed according to figures just issued by County School Superintendent J. Percy Wells. Of these, 34 will enter with conditions, while only 12 failed. One hundred and sixty-four receive diplomas. This is considered a very good record.

Muriel Rhodes of Medford secured the highest standing, 96.5 percent.

Margaret Manfield of Medford was second with 94.3 percent while third place went to Belle French of Rogue River, with 94 average.

For the several schools, Gold Hill and Rogue River led with the perfect record of 100 percent. In the former place 19 were examined and all passed without conditions. Ashland and Jacksonville are not included, as examinations there take place in June.

The decisive manner in which Bud Anderson eliminated Mandot yesterday night is the one topic for discussion among Medford fans. While the majority expected a victory, there were some who risked their money on the Frenchman and but few believed the trick would be so easily accomplished.

Last night the Isis Theater and the Angie Opera House were filled with followers of our Bud's fortunes when the flash announcing the victory came in the resultant cheers awakened all the early sleepers in the countryside. Bud is stronger than ever with the fans and another reception is in order when he returns to Medford.

The returns last night were completed and rapid and each blow was read to the crowd almost before the sting of them had left the fighters.
