CALL MEETING TO FORM GOLF CLUB, OCT. 19

Over 100 Representative Citizens Sign Petition Expressing Desire to Have Country Club Near Medford — Project Well Received.

Medford is to have a new golf and country club if plans recently formulated by a number of representative business men materialize. R. H. McCurdy started the ball rolling by circulating a petition, and a meeting to perfect plans and name an organizing committee will be held at the public library Wednesday evening, October 19 at 8 p.m. Over 100 names have been secured, but no attempt to make a thorough canvas has been made, and any men and women in Medford or Jackson county interested in such a project are urged to attend this meeting.

C. E. Gates has been requested to preside at the meeting, so an auspicious launching of the project is assured. Before the meeting adjourns a fairly definite program will undoubtedly be formulated, and work started at once to secure grounds for 1922.

AUTOS SMASH IN FRONT OF PAGE

While endeavoring to pass a truck last evening on Main street in front of the Page theatre, Clarence Frick who was driving a Ford touring car collided with the rear end of a Maxwell roadster belonging to Ralph L. Pollock. The Maxwell was parked in front of the Medford Domestic laundry and Mr. Pollock was seated in the Page seeking excitement in the story of the R. N. W. M. P. when he could have plenty of excitement had he been in his car.

When Frick tried to stop he discovered that his brakes did not work due to a broken axle which must have broken just before the collision. The rear fender of the Maxwell was bent and the tail-light smashed. The front end of the Ford was totally wrecked.

LOCAL AND PERSONAL

The pheasant and quail season opens tomorrow morning at sun-up and will remain open until Oct. 31. Many local nimrods are cleaning and oiling shotguns assiduously and although the pheasants are not as plentiful as they have been in former years everyone expects to get the limit.
