ANNUAL SCHOOL FIELD DAY EXERCISES AT TALENT APRIL 26
The Southern Oregon Athletic association will hold its annual field and track meet for the third time at Talent. Friday has been selected, at which time schools from the entire Rogue River Valley will participate. The prize trophy will be the silver cup put up by the Olympic Society of the Talent High School three years ago. The cup was held by Gold Hill one year ago and is now in the possession of Central Point, who won last season. Rogue River announces that they have two or three men out for each event and undoubtedly expect to take the trophy to the north end of the valley with them this year.
A special trophy valued at from $10 to $15 will be offered for a free-for-all three-mile run. This event is open to anyone, regardless of age or institution which they represent, and is to pass into permanent possession of the successful contestant. The trophy is being designed and made by the manual arts class of the Talent High School under the direction of Professor Ager, and will consist of an 18-gauge etched copper plate mounted upon a fumed oak frame.
An all-day session will be held beginning about 10 o'clock. All are requested to bring baskets and participate in a picnic dinner upon the school grounds during the noon hour. Hon. J.A. Churchill, state superintendent of public instruction, will deliver an address at 1 o'clock. These meets are free to everyone.
LOCAL AND PERSONAL
T.C. White is charged with forging a check for $34, using the name of H.E. Conger, a farmer in the vicinity of Medford, about a week ago, and cashing it with Luke Ryan. Before complaint was made, White escaped. A complaint charging White with the crime of forgery has been filed in Justice Taylor's court, and an effort is being made to overtake the alleged forger. He made inquiries for rates to Twin Falls, Idaho, and also to Reno, Nevada, before disappearing from this city. Prosecuting Attorney Kelly believes that White may not be very far away.
