The action was taken yesterday by the board of control of the state association, composed of A. C. Strange of Astoria high school, J. C. Nelson, principal of Salem high school and Superintendent Churchill.

A further action of the board was to declare the football game played between Medford and Klamath Falls on October 8 forfeited to Klamath Falls. The game was won by Medford, but Klamath Falls high school entered a protest charging that Medford had used ineligible players. These are said to have been ex-service men over 21 years old.


Superintendent Smith of the Medford schools, when informed of the above dispatch said he had received no official notice, but when the same arrived, he would have a public statement to make. Klamath Falls filed a protest after the first defeat by Medford.

The resumption of local drilling is pending the arrival of Mr. Lilly, president of the company, and Mr. Josey, consulting engineer, and they are expected in a day or two.
