One or more hikes are being planned by the Y. M. C. A. for the boys of the county during the holidays. With some fair open weather during the respite from school duties, these trips should prove very interesting. It will mean leaving town about nine in the morning and returning in time for the evening meal. Each boy will take lunch from home and one of the features of the hike will be the “hot dog” roast at noon.

Boys from all parts of the county are invited and may apply at the County Y. M. C. A. office, or to the committeemen in their section. Plans will be made to have hikes start from different sections so that it will not be necessary for boys to travel far to attend.

Attempt is also being made to work up one over-night hike, arranging to spend the night in some mountain cabin. No boys under twelve years of age will be taken on the over-night hike, but those of ten and up may take in the day hikes.


A meeting was held last evening of the Ashland Sportsmen’s Association, C. D. Briggs, president, and Louis Dodge, secretary of the Ashland association and Ashland vice-president for the Jackson County Game Protective Association were in charge of the meeting.

... The meeting took a unanimous vote to disorganize and to join the Jackson County Game Protective Association in a body. About 60 members were present and the meeting was enthusiastic throughout.

This action on the part of the Ashland organization increases the membership of the county organization to about 400.


Daddy’s Night will be celebrated tomorrow (Friday) evening at the Washington school. A fine program has been prepared, with Professor Vining as speaker of the evening, and this alone insures and enjoyable occasion. Also, the refreshments have been planned with special consideration for men folks well known tastes, so it is hoped they may show their appreciation by coming out in full force. The room having the largest number of fathers will receive a beautiful plant, so it seems certain no father will have an opportunity for saying that he forgot the date. Mrs. Swanton, of the Oregon Humane Society, will be one of the speakers.
