Feb.6, 1920


The high school student body is all excited with anticipation and can hardly wait until the basket ball season open tonight with the game between Medford Hi and Albany at the Natatorium. The students held a rally at the high school this afternoon and will hold another this evening before the game. The preliminary game between the girls teams of the Jacksonville and Medford high schools, which is also arousing much interest, begins at 7:30 o’clock. The high school band will play thruout the evening and add much zest to the contests.

The fact that the Central Point alumni team beat the Albany team at Central Point in a rough game last night by 20 to 8, whereas Medford beat the Central Pointers last Tuesday night by 20 to 10, has aroused the hopes of the local student body for a victory tonight. However, the Albany players showed that they were fast and have fine team work. They were handicapped by the fact that the Central Point floor is a very small one, and will no doubt play a much better game on the large floor of the natatorium.


Those interested in attending one of the clothing schools to be held in Jackson County during the month of April should attend one of the clothing conferences that are being held this week and next. One of these conferences will be held Saturday afternoon in the community room of the library, in Medford. All women who are interested in having one of these schools in Medford should attend this conference, which is being held to make arrangements for such a school if there is sufficient interest in this community.

Miss Jessica Biles, who has been a member of the Oregon Agricultural College faculty until the first of this year, and since then has been a member of the Agricultural Extension department, will be in Jackson county during the month of April to assist Miss Pool, home demonstration agent, in conducting these schools. Ashland, Phoenix and Talent have already made arrangements for schools to be held in their communities. The interest has been very great in these places, and the women are making their plans already so as not to miss any of the work given in these schools.
