Mail Tribune 100, Dec. 14, 1921

The school board at its meeting last night decided that the Christmas holiday vacation of the school will begin at the close of school next Wednesday afternoon, and last until Tuesday, January 3.

The board discussed the matter, but took no action on the request of the parent-teacher associations of Washington and Lincoln schools to establish covered pay sheds on the grounds of the schools. It is probable that such sheds may be established at both school grounds by the board in time for use next winter, but that no action may be expected in that line this winter. The other schools may make similar requests, but the need for play sheds is not so urgent as at Washington and Lincoln schools, as the other buildings have commodious basements which can be used for play in bad weather.

The board ratified the selections of the Junior Red Cross committee of appointments of school physicians to diagnose suspicious cases of illness among the pupils. These physicians are Drs. Frederick G. Thayer, Mr. W. P. Hult, and R. W. Stearns.


An annual pilgrimage to Crater lake, there to do honor with appropriate exercises and ceremony to one of the world’s greatest scenic wonders, was suggested to the Crater Club last evening as a suitable activity for that body by Professor Irving Vining of Ashland, who delivered the address of the evening.

Professor Vining’s theme, interesting in itself, was rendered doubly attractive by the speaker’s ability as an orator.

Another Ashland guest at the banquet was Secretary John Fuller of the Chamber of Commerce.

Six new members were added to the roll, the limit of 60 precluding further additions until vacancies occur.

...Tastefully decorated with wool whiskers, Louis Ulrich gave a dignified impersonation of Santa Claus, passing out gifts which Tom Sweem had prepared with suitable verses to accompany them.

The session adjourned early to attend the mass meeting of organizations interested in today’s special election.
