Mail Tribune 100

Dec. 28, 1915


The formal reception tendered the visiting teachers and members of the Oregon State Teachers' association at the Hotel Medford last night was a very enjoyable affair. The program, though brief, was rendered delightfully, the musicians, both vocal and instrumental, acquitting themselves most creditably. The address of welcome by Attorney Gus Newbury was well received, the speaker's occasional glints of humor serving to enliven the appreciation of his words of welcome. Mr. Herdman's response was well spoken and manifestly sincere.

It would be unfair to make special reference to any particular feature of the program and the excellence which marked its rendition. It was all of a high class. It may be remarked, however, that the male quartet, Messrs. Lindley, Alford, Meeker and Bennett, was conspicuous by its absence. It is a compliment to the young men to say that this was regretted.

After the reception, many of the teachers and their hosts attended the ball at the Seventh company armory, while others enjoyed the Drama league's amateur players' club presentation of "Hyacinth Halvey," the one act play by Lady Gregory, at the Page theater.

Others attended functions especially prepared for them in other parts of the city, among them being two or three private dance parties.


Joe Wilson, of Talent, and H. C. Garnet, of this city, were asked to explain to the police court this morning how the collision occurred on Main street a few evenings ago, in which the two machines were smashed considerably, so the blame may be placed where it belongs. Judge Crews and the Alco Taxi Co. driver were also required to explain the details of their accident. Boudinct Connor and O. V. Myers will appear some time this afternoon and tell their tale of woe. This is the initial roundup by the police department in its final purpose to protect human life on the streets of this city by enforcing the highway laws.
