WOMEN'S CLUB TO MEET, GRANTS PASS
At the executive board meeting of the First Southern Oregon District Federation of Woman's Club, held at Rogue River Tuesday, it was decided to hold the annual convention at Grants Pass, April 12, 13 and 14, 1917.
Besides regular routine business, the work for the different departments was discussed and planned.
All indications point to the fact that the coming convention will exceed any former ones, judging from interest shown.
Immediately following the morning session, a most enjoyable luncheon was served by the Rogue River Civic Improvement Club, assisted by the high school girls, to some 40 members and visitors. A number of short speeches were made by some of the club members following the luncheon.
Members of clubs from Ashland, Medford and Grants Pass were in attendance.
FOOTBALL SQUAD READY FOR GAME
Members of the high school football squad have been put through hard nights of scrimmage and tackling practice and the result is shown in cleaner, faster handling of the ball and surer tackling. The men, however, are rounding into playing condition but slowly, and their poor shape is holding back Coach Klum in his outlined practice schedule.
Shorty Gentry, who won his letter last year at end, has been shifted to the backfield. His very shortness, coupled with a good deal of beef, promises to send him through opposing lines like a bullet.
Straight football will be the rule for the season, Klum announces, and in line with that plan, he is devoting most of the scrimmage practice to drilling fundamentals into the men. It is his hope, also, to make the Medford team known as a hard tackling organization.
All men of the high school alumni are requested to meet on the mezzanine floor of the Medford hotel Friday at 7:30, when Captain Beveridge of the alumni will outline signals and make up the lineup of his team for the alumni high school battle Saturday.
