May 27, 1914

The commencement exercises of the senior class of the Medford High School for 1914 will be held at the Page Theater Friday evening, May 29 at 8 o'clock. The class is composed of 39 members, 10 boys and 29 girls — four less than last year. About 75 per cent have declared their intention of entering the educational institutions of the state next year for college work.

The class roll was completed by the high school faculty Monday evening, a few of the graduates being in doubt until the result of final examinations were known. At a meeting of the faculty and a committee of the class, Miss Willie W. Howard was chosen valedictorian. The salutation will be delivered by George Gates.


The graduating exercises of the Ashland High School were held Friday at the Chautauqua tabernacle. The class history was read by Margaret Siemantel and Otto Klum. The presentation of diplomas by Superintendent Briscoe was to one of the largest classes in the history of the school. The graduation address was by Irwin E. Vining.


Multnomah County contains 45 percent of the entire number of automobiles registered in the state of Oregon, to and including April 28. On that date there were 12,600 automobiles registered at the secretary of state's office in Salem, and Multnomah County showed 5,556 of the number. Portland being the largest city in the state of Oregon, of course, has a great deal to do with the showing of this county.

Marion County, to which Salem is located, shows the second largest number of automobiles, having 882. Jackson County ranks third with 677. Umatilla, noted for its famous round-ups held at Pendleton each year, is next on the list, 544 registrations.

The following list of automobiles are registered in the different counties:

Coos, 252; Curry, 2; Douglas, 240; Harney, 44; Jackson, 677; Josephine, 152, Klamath, 207; Lake, 85.
