The following news items were drawn from the archives of the Mail Tribune 100 years ago.

Sept. 3, 1920


The Rialto and Liberty theatres management wish to announce a revised time schedule, which takes effect next Saturday, Sept. 5th. There will be four complete performances daily, beginning at 1:30, 3:30, 7 and 9 p.m., permitting all late comers to see a complete performance. The short reels will precede the feature attraction, which will give approximately thirty minutes from the opening time, before the main picture starts. During the matinée performances, the pictures are shown in their entirety, the same as the evening.


Ashland, Sept. 2. — Six years of age, on or before Oct. 1, 1920, is a requisite for pupils who have never yet attended school, and in order to enter classes this fall they should be on hand, preferably at the beginning of the term on Monday, Sept. 6. Unless changed later on, the municipal subdivision geographically as between Hawthorne school and Junior high, will be on a line bounded by Gresham and Third streets pupils on the east side of this line going to Hawthorne, and west of it to Junior high. After school has “taken up,” however, this matter will be definitely settled, depending upon the attendance at the two buildings respectively; consequently a strict letter observance of these boundaries will be subject to change in accordance with future developments.

Assignments of classes in high school, to such as have not heretofore attended that institution, were begun on Wednesday of this week before Principal Forsythe, and later on all pupils desiring to perfect themselves on subjects in which they were deficient, such studies applying whether to high school or grades, are having the privilege of gaining the required status thru test as to qualifications perfected before the opening of the term, a plan which is especially advantageous to all concerned, implying uniformity in educational standards.

Among new instructors is Miss Maybell Farrar, who will be the teacher of commercial methods in the senior high school. Walter F. Hughes, of Denver, a graduate of Colorado college, will be the new athletic trainer and physical director having been chosen to succeed a previous appointee who was unable to accept on account of illness. Over thirty instructors are in readiness for the fall campaign. The physical condition of buildings and grounds are in fine order, the fuel problem has been solved, and indications point to a most successful year’s work in the city schools.
