Mail Tribune 100, Sept. 23, 1922 continued

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

Sept. 23, 1922 continued


Miss Mabel R. Haines of Seattle, Wash., has accepted the position as executive secretary of the Jackson County Red Cross chapter, which was recently offered her by the executive committee. The office during the past three months has been under the most efficient direction of Mrs. H. L. Noblit assisted by Mrs. C. Farrar of the Thrift Shop. Mrs. Noblit assumed the responsibilities of the office on the leaving of Miss Hart, but only as temporary supply. She has done most excellent service and won the highest respect of the community for the work of the Red Cross.

The Thrift Shop under the direction of Mrs. C. Farrar has been well organized and made an excellent record for itself for these first months and held its own during the summer months. There is every outlook for a growing business through the Thrift Shop which will mean a help to the expenses of the Red Cross work.

Miss Mable Haines has had wide experience as a Red Cross worker of several years. She most efficiently organized the civilian relief work in the Imperial Valley, has made a splendid record with the San Bernardino County Welfare commission of which she was secretary for some time. She comes highly recommended by the Pacific Coast division of the American Red Cross with headquarters at San Francisco.

Miss Haines will arrive next week Wednesday and be ready to take up the duties of her new office at once. We bespeak for her and the local Red Cross the hearty cooperation and loyal support of the citizens of Medford.


An exhibit of more than local interest at the county fair was that of a pair of registered Hampshire sheep from the flocks of Mr. Dave Waddell of Amity, Oregon.

Mr. Waddell is a successful sheep breeder of the northwest. Because he is also deeply interested in the young people of the state he gives each year a pair of pure-bred Hampshires to the farm boy or girl under 16 years of age, in Oregon, who writes the best paper on the Hampshire breed of sheep, and why registered sheep should be raised.

This contest is open each year to the young people of the state, and the sheep exhibited here were won last year by George Hiler, a junior in the Medford high school. They were awarded blue ribbons by the Jackson County judges, and elicited much favorable comment from stock men attending the fair.
