BROCCOLI PROVES PROFITABLE CROP

This paper has referred to the fact that broccoli can be produced abundantly on certain soils of the Rogue river valley and has encouraged its production because it yields a valuable crop where conditions are favorable. It has been known to net the grower $350 an acre in favored localities.

E. J. Brown, who lives on the upper Applegate, planted a quarter of an acre of the broccoli, and his receipts from this small tract will be over $50, or at the rate of $200 per acre. He has marketed some of the crop in Medford and some in Grants Pass. The heads were solid and bleached out as white as snow, though Mr. Brown said they seemed to be somewhat later in heading than he had expected, just recently having come to marketable condition.

DAILY ELECTED AS PRINCIPAL OF MEDFORD HIGH

At a meeting of the school board Thursday night, P. H. Daily, principal of Washington school during the past four years, was unanimously elected principal of the high school to fill the vacancy of G. F. Moore, who resigned. Only three members of the board were present, but the two members absent had already heartily endorsed Mr. Daily.

The janitors of the different schools were re-elected for the coming term at their present salary.

The regular monthly bills were read and allowed. The bills for the domestic science department were lower, owing to the receipts of the department for lunches.

The minutes of the last regular meeting, also the special meeting, were read and approved.

Mr. Pratt's resignation was read and accepted. 

ASHLAND AND VICINITY

The Wednesday Afternoon club was entertained this week by Mrs. Bert Greer, at her residence on the Boulevard. She was assisted by Mesdames Walter Gorham, Charles Loomis and Harry Andrews. This gathering was the most successful one in the club's history recently. The decorations were in line with the advent of the spring season and heightened the effects of the entertainment event which was an ideal one in every particular.
