  • The Olympic society of the Talent high school is planning great things for the field meet to be held at Talent May 14. A large number of the schools of the second and third class will participate. The schools that cannot attend in a body will send track teams. This is the first time in the history of the schools of Southern Oregon that such a meet has been held and results cannot be predicted at this time, but from all indications some excellent records will be made, especially from the larger schools such as Gold Hill, Phoenix, Talent, Jacksonville and Central Point.
    The plan is to have an all-day program of sports, picnic dinner with barbecue, and such other attractions as will tend to make the day one to be long remembered. Suitable prizes will be offered to the winning schools and competition is bound to be close.

    A Southern Pacific freight conductor overlooked a bet Friday in failing to set out a carload of material for the Central Point section of the Pacific Highway at Bear Creek junction, and as a result the construction crew on the job was laid off today. The material will be hauled to its proper place this afternoon and operations will resume Monday. A night crew has been added to the Gold Ray quarry and faster work is probable henceforth.

    Reports compiled by Postmaster Ralph Woodford for the first 15 days of April on the parcel post business shows that 2,558 packages were received and 1,137 packages sent out, a total of 3,695. This in a year would aggregate to 90,043. To secure these figures it required three men three days, owing to the large amount of detail connected therewith.
