POACHERS MAKE CLEAN SWEEP AT AMENT DAM
Fish poachers at the Ament dam made a clean sweep Thursday night, dragging with nets the pools in front of the dam. Game Warden Merrill's commission had expired and Game Warden Jewell's commission had not arrived, so there was no one to stop their activity. Mr. Sandry's commission had also expired.
James H. Driscoll, chief deputy game warden for southern Oregon, arrived in Medford Saturday to take up his work as successor to Sam Sandry. James H. Brown, former editor of the Brownsville Times, now bookkeeper for the game commission, accompanies him. They will familiarize themselves with local conditions.
GAME FORFEITED BY GRANTS PASS
Medford won the ball game with Grants Pass yesterday by a forfeit. Grants Pass took exception to a decision of the umpire at the home plate. At the time of the peevishness of the visitors, the score stood 5 to 2 in their favor, with the sacks loaded with Medford players. A jangle followed and the umpire called the game. Pernoll pitching for Grants Pass laced out a home run with the bases full. Caster pitching for Medford was not his usual form and was touched up lively at critical stages.
MOVING PICTURES MEDFORD SCENES SHOWN MONDAY
Those who go to see the Rogue River Valley moving pictures at the Page July 5-6 (and from all indications, that includes everybody) need not go prepared to make allowances for amateur work, for the photography is up to the best professional standards.
The producers have tried to avoid the mistake made by other counties of showing commonplace scenes which can be duplicated anywhere, and have adopted the plan of showing the attractive features of the valley as they appear to a young lady who comes to visit friends and is so charmed by the attractiveness of the valley that she remains here.
